Weight Loss Blogs-The First 3 Days (Sept. 15-17, 2009)
Day #1 - Today wasn't too bad at all. Because I'm not in the habit of eating right, I kept forgetting that I was trying to stay on track. I would think about getting ice cream on the way home or drinking some of the sugary lemonade that I have sitting in the refrigerator. But I didn't. Luckily I remembered the promise I made to myself before I put anything bad in my mouth.
The evenings are hard. That's when the cravings kick into high gear. Tonight wasn't too bad, but I did open the fridge a couple of times just to look.
I need to get better about drinking my water. Eating right and drinking lots of water seems to give me indigestion. I HATE that!! Must invest in TUMS.
No, I didn't exercise at all. That's another thing that I need to work on.
3 out of 5 stars
Day #2 - This morning I woke up with a headache. That's actually pretty common for me, but it made the first part of my day kinda crappy.
My husband made me scrambled eggs and toast for breakfast (we used to stop at Del Taco every morning for burritos and coffee). He also packed my food for me to take to work. My food plan includes 6 small meals a day, eaten about 2-3 hours apart. I was supposed to eat again at around 10:00 this morning but didn't eat until about 12:30. Then I ate again at 3:00 even though I wasn't all that hungry.
I didn't eat again until 8:30! After work, we went to the grocery store and bought a TON of healthy foods. By the time I got home, I was STARVING!!! I drank a big glass of orange juice and ate a banana to tide me over until dinner was done.
Didn't go walking today like I had planned. Tomorrow FOR SURE! (wish me luck)
Oh, and we bought a scale today. Ugh
Day #3 - Well, I did better on my water today. Just one glass short of making goal.
I didn't exercise, yet again. Didn't I swear that I would today in yesterday's blog? LAME!
My calories did go over today by about 100. It's the bread that's killing me. I had 4 pieces. It's open faced sandwiches from now on!
It's 10:30 at night and I'm hungry. That's not good. But I don't want to eat this late. Guess I should go to bed. Goodnight everyone! =)
