Struggling Already

Monday, January 10, 2011

2 weeks into the new year and I`m already not doing so good. The first week was so easy and now I don`t know how I stuck to plan it seems so little!

Ok, I went over my cal range for a day, no big deal I told myself. But this has happened for the past week. I even find it hard to track when it becomes obvious I`ve blown it for the day. Just forget it, start fresh the next day I say to myself.

But every day goes south, through either bad planning or just complusivly eating for no apparent reason.

It doesn`t bode well for the new year, or ever getting out this plateau.

Well that`s the problem what`s the solution?

1) Stay away from triggersnack foods, I am finding it impossible to stick to `one portion` at the moment
2) Find some filling recipies, look back at my food tracker for last year when I felt satisfied with what I ate

and tommorow I`m going to make lasagne, with cabbage leaves instead of noodles. My friend said that sounded gross but I don`t see what`s so bad about it?

Never giving up! Hopefully this is just a phase and I can go back to eating sensiblly.

    you can do this!
    I hate tracking my food, it makes me depressed and obsessed and it is one of my triggers to go into a binge.

    I totally understand.. Oh my goodness it is hard to eat what "They" say is one serving. Who ever eats 9 chips right? well I think whats been helping me is that every time I want to get a snack I tell myself ok you can have a snack as long as you have 2 cups of water first and then wait 5 minutes.. Thats the deal I have with myself and lots of times I find that My body just wanted something (water) or if I do still want a snack a small portion usually is enough after that. Or the next best thing is get on here and write or look through sparkpages.. Good luck and I am here if you need to vent or whatever
