I have been doing really well with sticking to my healthy lifestyle over the last few weeks and I am trying really hard to keep up the good habits I have been creating but it is not easy. I spend so much time thinking about food everyday it seems almost crazy.
Planning and tracking my food is a big part of changing of my lifestyle. I usually plan 2 full days of meals at a time because if I have to think about what I am going to eat then I will almost always choose something that is less nutritious. I have been tracking my calories and activity using the my fitness pal and I find it very easy to use and it does not take me too much extra time.
I have had a really hard time with my scale the last 2 weeks. The problem is not the number on the scale (even though I don’t like the number), the problem is that I can’t keep myself off of it. I need to break the habit of stepping on the scale because I know that weight fluctuates day to day and I also know that I have been eating well and if the scale doesn’t show it I will lose motivation.
I am hoping that I can keep up the momentum since I have been doing so well but I can feel myself longing for those high fat and high sugar foods although I have not caved in yet!
One day at a time, and one pound at a time I am determined to stick to this new lifestyle. I know that eating well makes me feel good and eating bad makes me feel bad, but it is so hard to resist all those high fat, sugary and convenient foods.
Now that my oldest son has started lacrosse season the trick will be to get through the out of town tournaments and the busy nights while keeping up with my changes.
