Just 4 Today, I’ll drink my fiber twice (done once!), drink 2 liters of water (so far, about 1/2 liter), walk 5 miles (yesterday – 5.84), NOT eat between meals & NOT take seconds.
Facing Friday’s Fears
It’s not that I’m BAD on weekends, but I’m just not as focused as I am during the week. For example, we call our Friday & Saturday night dinners, “Green Plate Specials” and have pizza, burritos and/or tacos or hamburgers and (with whichever we’re eating) salad & baked french fries. We’ve done this for 15 years or more.
So, I know that there’s nothing inherently bad about those meals — I’ve both lost AND maintained weight while eating those foods. Taco night (for example) has 400 calories — as long as I stick to 3 oz of french fries. And THAT’s the catch.
I don’t always take the time to weigh the fries. And sometimes I nibble on a few as mister finishes the last bits of meal preparation (and THOSE don’t get weighed for sure!) So, I end up not knowing exactly how much I’ve eaten — but I suspect that it’s too much.
So (Just Tonight) I’m not going to eat any fries that I haven’t weighed.
What are you going to do today?
