That's right. This weekend my dad came down and I planned on being good. I really did. But I ate all kinds of things that I should be stopping! I had cake and Bojangles, and McDonald's. Traveling does that to me. I don't eat as well as I should and totally screw up my plans. But we came home Monday and I resolved to do better! On Tuesday I went to the gym and only had carbs for breakfast and lunch. Those were limited to whole grains. For dinner, I replaced the carb-laden foods that I fed the family for a salad. Then I didn't do so well yesterday! During the day I did good, but hormones left me with an intense craving for chocolate which I did give in to! I need to make my chocolate energy bites for those times. Yummy chocolate with healthy stuff mixed in.
All in all, this morning I woke up still at 178. I'm going back to the gym today. My goal is to work up to going 4-5 times a week. I'm also going to purchase a couple of Jillian Michael's DVDs for the days when I can't go to the gym. My last one broke! In addition to that, the outdoor pool at the YMCA is open for business!!! That will help me burn a lot of calories. I figure I will have these set backs on my eating habits but the goal is to look forward and keep pushing myself to alter my thinking on what I eat. That and lots of prayer!
