I am at the point where I really need to watch myself. I have been doing good and feel like an occasional cheat won't hurt, but it truth it will because it will lead to more and more cheats. I have found myself skipping breakfast or lunch occasionally again. That makes me want to eat more at supper which is a big problem for me. Portion control. I also think that since I am working out so much I can reward myself with eating alittle more. Oh the tricks your mind plays. In truth I can't do any of those things now or ever. I found out the hard way once when I quit smoking after 8 years I decided I could have a cigarette when I was out with my sister one time. One cigarette quickly became a pack which resulting in my smoking another 10 years until I quit again last year. It is so easy to slip and go back into bad habits. I am not hungry for breakfast usually and it is easy for me to just not eat it. That is what for me is so great about the slim fast. I can usually force myself to drink one of those. I believe it is really important not to miss any meals. I also stopped journaling my food daily. I need to start doing that again. I feel myself slipping into bad habits. Successful losers see that happening and stop it immediately. I want to be successful. I found a pretty good site with some good information. http://www.power-surge.com/educate/diet_weight.htm Most of that if not all of that I know but reminding myself is good.
Breakfast this morning was a slim fast shake. I slept so terrible last night because my back hurt. I can only take tylenol until after my surgery and it did not do the trick. Work will be awful tonight on 5 hours of sleep and by this time tomorrow I will be up for 26 hours unless I can take a nap this afternoon. No gym today. My back is just too out of wack. I think I will do a hot bath in scented bath beads and try to go back to bed. It sounds like my MIL wants us to eat at her house today. I will have to make sure I eat a good lunch, snack, and lots of water so I can handle what ever she prepares.
My sweet dog Zoey. Lazy like me today.
