Final 15 Week 2, Day 2: Moving right along

Tuesday was not so bad on the nutrition front, but I didn't get a single workout in. Overslept for spin class in the morning, and then had too much to do in the evening. Note to self: That's why your get you @$$ outta bed at 4:30 a.m. and get it done in the morning. Just do it. Anyways, 1323 total calories...I didn't have time to do the ratio chart, but I can tell at a glance that I was low on protein and high on carbs. I did find a new oatmeal that I am trying. It's Kroger-brand "Active Lifestyle Weight Control" and it has pecans in it, and double the protein of the Kashi Heart-to-Heart. Yummy taste (not very sweet) and very filling. Here's the quick version of what I ate, because I am a bit pressed for time lately:

Positive notes: Smaller portions are becoming more comfortable and natural sugar is more satisfying after not having refined sugar for a few days.

Negatives: I am still thinking about when and what I'm eating all the time, and I don't like that. If I was to have a strawberry milkshake right now, I would spiral all the way down to the bottom and never return. It would be all over but the crying.

Make sure you mapquest out and around all the Sonic's and milkshake places...just kidding!

Seriously, you're doing just fine. I've fallen off the wagon and never lost a darned lb...since you started this thing.

Today...new plan of attack...and like you said you're always thinking about food...well, I'm just always freezing. Caloric restriction stinks!!

good for you for eating natural sugars! i thought when i quit white refined sugar i would lose weight, though, and it didn't happen! i replaced all of those carbs with "natural sugar" carbs and my body treated that the same way.....

so now i am cutting out peripheral foods that i don't need and testing my discipline like it sounds you are doing.

keep it up!

I'm looking forward to getting on the scale at the gym today. I'm wearing my "skinny suit" (sort of like skinny jeans for lawyers) and it feels more loose than it did two weeks ago.

You doing great Lana. Keep it up, things will get easier and you'll stop thinking about food all the time.

hang in there, it's a bit of a lifestyle change, yes?
It takes humans 3 weeks to develop a habit. Your good habits now will pay off and your mind will be clearer.
