First of all, thank you to those who commented yesterday. Grace I really like that idea from the book. I will absolutely remember that. Kelly yup, I just have to move on, what's done is done.
Last night it happened again though. Old habits die hard. I had 4 pretzel bites at the movies with the kids. Four. I came home, found it on myfitnesspal, and discovered it was only 123 calories. And I let that measley 123 calories ruin my day. I did really good until after dinner. Down hill from there. Still nowhere near as bad as in the past, but this is 3 days this week now. But I think I know what the problem is and I believe I have a solution.
The problem is that I'm taking this whole eating smaller meals thing to the extreme. ALL of my meals are UNDER 200 calories. All of them. Then I end up snacking because I am hungry (duh). So what I am doing now is making breakfast 200 calories, my morning snack 100, lunch 250, afternoon snack 150, dinner 300 and then I have 200 calories left for dessert and one more snack if I want. That gives me a grand total of 1200 for the day until I lose what I just gained back. Oh, and in case you were wondering, I've been following the myfitnesspal plan, and not WW. I DO still count the weekly points though for when I'm going out or I feel like treating myself. Until recently that seemed to be working.
As for exercising, I have a plan for that too. Starting today. Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday I will be following the FE plan, and Monday,Wednesday, and Friday I will be hitting the gym. I know this is a similar exercise routine to what I had said last week, but I didn't have anything concrete for when I was working out at home. I believe I said I would do whatever DVD I felt like. Well obviously that hasn't really worked out. I think I need a more specific plan in place in order for me to really follow it. So that's my plan, and I am still under 120 so I have caught myself before it started getting really out of control. I am going to go and do my workout now before I have to get the kids off to school and my butt to work. Will check in soon!
