uuurrrghhhhh need to deal with nasties

Tuesday, December 29, 2015

so... tomorrow I need to weigh in. It's not a weigh-in day, but although my xmas day calories were not too bad... the days since then have been absolutely awful. I thought today would be the day I got back to business, but somehow my lunch came to a whopping 1411 calories. Chicken casserole was reasonable but I had 2 mince pies. TWO!!! with a massive dollop of cream. Totally unnecessary, other than I have too many mince pies and they need using up by the weekend. And never mind the "walking past the goodies and picking up a rum truffle because it looked yummy" shenanigans.

The scale is going to groan and give a shocking number.. but I need to get back on track and see some progress. If I don't go over my maintenance calories tomorrow (will be hard to stick to weight-loss range with so many goodies about) I should still see a loss from that weight when I weigh again the following day, with some sodium-water weight shifting.

I have a few ideas for improving my progress in 2016... which I will think about more over the next few days. Today, I have eaten way more calories than I can reasonably burn, and haven't even eaten an evening meal yet.

I will also get the measuring tape out. That's going to be worse than the scale. emoticon emoticon Got to be done though, I will try my best to improve those numbers over the next 3 months. My goal is to drop 1 jeans size in that time. I want 2016 to be a successful year for me in many ways. Getting back to a normal and healthy size is high on my list of hopes for the year.

    If you can't give away the goodies toss them and learn not to make/buy so much next year. I didn't do any baking this year and it turned out fine as we had store-bought chocolates and Christmas fruitcake. Just get rid of the stuff (NOT by eating it!)

    Isn't there anyplace you can give the food? Several places I volunteer have food out for volunteers and would love mince pies. The other, more draconian measure, is to simply bin them. Children will still be starving if you eat the stuff and wasting food is better than berating yourself.

    You can make it happen Izzy!

    As far as the weigh-in this week....just do it and take it for what it is and move forward!

    Give away!!! I sent home with guests,... brought to church, brought to school and yes... threw away when necessary OR froze!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Get them away from you as soon as possible. I even when I went visiting brought food!! I am slowly learning to make less for the holiday ( still having plenty!!) but not so many leftovers. AND I give them away!!!

    If you can freeze the goodies, do so. Give food away so it is not there to tempt you. Drink a glass of water before indulging.
