Cheaters Never Lose…Weight.

This is the face of a cheater!
This is the face of a cheater!

This weekend was my first “test” and I failed. I was in a situation where I couldn’t have any of my Ideal Protein foods or healthy veggies to snack on so I did what you are never supposed to do; I just didn’t eat. And then when I did eat, I did not make the best choices. I felt soooooo guilty!
This is also my first “time-of-the-month” since I have been on the program and the cravings I usually have (sweet & salty) but I have been able to control myself and not going on a snacking bender.
I have been so proud of myself with staying on program. I did not like the feeling that came with being a “cheater” and I definitely don’t like the 2lbs. that I gained as a result. I am back on the wagon and I have learned from my mistakes. I am definitely going to have to do some better planning when we travel to make sure that I don’t have another cheating episode.

I’m Still In The Game!

This was a very busy week! Usually, I eat the worst when I’m busy. Who has time to think about eating properly when there are so many other things on the proverbial plate? Well, it has gotten to the point where I don’t really have to think about it anymore. Tomi and I have been trying to make sure that we have healthy snacks around the house as well as healthy options for lunches and dinners. That way, no matter what we reach for when a jones hits, we’ll be making a good choice as long as we keep portion control in mind.
This weekend was the Employee Recognition Banquet for Kadlec and I was all prepared to eat horribly. Well, my plan was foiled by…bacon. I had a huge pile of mashed potatoes along with pasta. Well, the potatoes had bacon in them so as a non-meat eater, I couldn’t partake. This is a good thing because I would’ve felt so guilty afterward. The largest portion of food on my dinner plate was salad and fruit. I did eat 3 pieces of cheesecake and almost an entire bottle of wine so I got an extra workout in to ‘pay’ for that.
This week, Tomi & I have decided to work on meal planning. We will sit down on Saturday and plan out lunches & dinners for the week and then shop accordingly. We have incorporated workout planning. We are going to put our workouts on our family calendar just like all our other appointments and come up with a consequence for when there is a cancel or reschedule. I am hoping this will help me be more consistent with working out because I HATE IT!
The last change I’ve vowed to work toward is getting more sleep each night so goodnight! 4am is going to arrive quickly.
