I’m off to a bad start . . . but I did promise I would blog every day!
Yesterday was supposed to be all about eating every 2-3 hours – making sure I eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner while snacking in between then having a snack every 2-3 hours up until 1 hour before bedtime.
Did I do that . . . eeehhh, not really. What did I do? I decided to do some more stress eat, AND I’m not even the one that should be stressing!
So, what has had me stressing? The hubby has a new job which is a YEAH! moment, but it also means change. The stress eating started Thursday/Friday last week. His last day with his former employer was Friday, and his first day with the new employer is today. I actually realized Friday that I was stress eating because I was nervous for his last day. What did I do with this knowledge? Nothing, nada, zip. As I ate my Burger King bacon and cheddar stuffed burger that was topped with onion rings and mayo, I knew what I was doing. I knew I was stress eating, and I didn’t stop myself. Even though that little voice was telling me, “Amy, just drive on passed Burger King to Wendy’s and get a grilled chicken sandwich”, I did what I knew I shouldn’t; and I continued that into the weekend.
And the confessions continue . . . Sunday, when I was supposed to be doing the Food Lover’s Diet, I had a piece of cheesecake (yes, cheesecake) for breakfast. THEN I had some of the cheesy potatoes that I made for Philip’s lunches and dinners for my dinner. Correction, I didn’t have just some . . . I had 2 very large servings. Thank goodness I was feeling too lazy to go out, or I may have ended up at Handels eating 2 scoops of Graham Central Station!
THEN, what do I do today? Even though I packed a nice, healthy lunch, I decided that I just had to go to my uncle’s restaurant for lunch. I reasoned that I needed to talk to him about using his party room for my jewelry party in May. Why couldn’t I just call him up on the phone? Because I couldn’t have a big, wet and cheesy burrito with a side of his AMAZING rice covered in cheese! (hanging head in shame)
Well, I promised from the beginning that this journey wouldn’t always be pretty, and I promised I would always be upfront and honest – that I would tell you the good and the bad. This is the bad.
So, how am I moving forward? Back to day 1 of the plan. While I failed this morning by going for 4 hours without eating then gorging on a burrito and rice, I have written it down; and I had my snack 3 hours later. For dinner I had a healthy dinner and then went to the gym.
Tomorrow, I promise to enlighten everyone on How to Make a Fat Loss Plate. For now, here’s a picture of today’s journal!
