Making Today a Success, Even after 12:00 p.m.

October 23, 2013

I had this great plan for yesterday.

Eat well.

Eat light.

Drink lots of water.

Exercise. 

 

Okay, if you read my blog daily, you know that the above words are EXACTLY how I started out yesterday’s blog. Then I stated that I would make “No Mistakes”!!!! Well, unfortunately, yesterday pretty much went exactly like Monday went. My breakfast was perfect, my lunch was perfect. Then after 12:00 p.m.,  I ran a few errands, just like the day before, one of which was at the new grocery store, “The Fresh Market”, where I sampled something from about TEN of the bulk bins!!! Sweet, salty, you name it, I had a taste. Then, while at the Deli Counter, picking out my Honey Roasted Rotisserie chicken, they asked me if I would like a sample of Chicken Salad. Well, I didn’t want to be RUDE! Then I had a sample of Pumpkin Spice Coffee. Yip, I had it all. When I got home, I made Honey Mustard Chicken Salad, then snacked on most of it! I didn’t take pictures, I didn’t measure out what I was eating, I didn’t write it down, and I have no idea how many points of Chicken Salad I ate!!!

Then I did a little pondering again on alcohol. I recently vowed to pay attention to my food intake on the days following alcohol consumption. While in Dallas over this past weekend, I would say that I had four drinks on Friday, four on Saturday, and four on Sunday. Obviously, it has affected me the last two days, because I can not seem to get back in the “Zone”. I wouldn’t say that I have felt “hungry” the last two days, or really even had “cravings”, but for some reason, I just want to snack!! It stops today, and I know it is going to be difficult.

I also find it odd that I would have such a crap week when I just had my lowest Weigh-In Ever!!!! Urg! Arg! Egads…..

Today…..I will focus.

I moved all of my trigger snacks in my pantry to the back of the pantry, where they are out of sight and I will be less likely to grab at them today.

I will write EVERYTHING down BEFORE I eat it today, and if it requires “measuring” before I can calculate the points, then I WILL measure it.

I will drink all of my water.

I will exercise, even if it is 9:00 p.m. when it happens. I will make no excuses.
