Filling in the Pieces: A New Plan

Sunday, December 01, 2019

Some Current Challenges:

1. Weigh me every morning. Get over the reluctance I have about getting on the scale. Keep my weight front and center in my brain!
2. Portion control: Instead of two tablespoons of nut butter in the morning have one tablespoon on my English muffin or Ezekiel bread.
3. Exercise in the morning before going to work. I belong to a 24-hour gym. I like to exercise in the morning.
4. Eat fish at least once a week. This can include canned tuna too.
5. Precision tracking: I weigh and measure most of what I eat. Now I need to measure it all and track it all (not just some) in my nutrition tracker.
6. More portion control: Find a way to work treats into my calorie budget. I continue to struggle with portion control and this concept called moderation.
6. Strength training at least twice a week. I usually do once a week.
7. Daily pep talks that remind me that I can do this!
8. Post this where I can see it every day.

What I do well now:
1. I eat fruits and vegetables daily.
2. I eat three meals a day, no snacks.
3. I try to cook once a week and eat it for several days. I dislike cooking after I worked all day!
I do love my crockpot!
4. I make satisfying meals.
5. I have learned to enjoy physical activity. I do not mind raking leaves! I am thankful I am healthy enough that I can!
6. I practice gratitude daily.
7. I show appreciation for others.
8. I get 7 to 8 hours of sleep a night.
9. I exercise almost every day (rest days are difficult even though I need to take rest days).

    You are doing so many things well already. It can be good to review and tweak but don't overwhelm yourself with too many changes at once. Even with our well meant advice, it's still your journey and you have to do what works for you. Wishing you the very best!
