- On Wednesday on the way to a ball game I stopped at a convenience store and eat a few things I shouldn't have. A large soft pretzel, a bag of Chex Mix, some oatmeal raisin cookies and a small bag of beef jerky. When I got home that night I was too full to eat much of the pasta dinner my Wife had made. I didn't enter the store bought calories into mynetdiary and mentally thought I would make up for it the next couple of days.
- I have been going over the 1700 per day calorie plan. Not by a huge amount but probably 200-300 calories per day. I'm also not really making sure my Fat Carb Protein ratios are on each day.
- I haven't been drinking enough water each day. Maybe 32 oz tops. I need to drink at least 64oz.
- I haven't been doing much walking. I really have to walk every day.
For #2 I need to get real with myself and stick to the plan. I thought I could go over the 1700 because I lost weight when I was eating 2300 but I don't think that's the case at all. I need to stick to the number each day.
To take care of #3 I have a 32 oz water bottle which I will fill and drink at least twice a day.
And last but not least I have to find a way to motivate myself to combat #4. It's not easy to move my body but I have to start doing it.
Also, I think my body was still reacting to the last weekends "feasting". I did eat many foods that I hadn't had in a while.
The good thing is that I realized this is an issue. I caught it and I'm going to do something about it. I really felt terrible when I saw the number on the scale and as I write this post I feel anger. I feel like I let myself down. I didn't make good choices and I wasn't honest with myself. But I have to move past this and get with the program.
Good choice, Self-Honesty.
