Monday is Weigh Day and I’m not surprised to report that I’ve gained 2lbs.
If it were only the Roses incident, that would be fine. But it’s not and I have to be honest. I’ve been letting things slide generally and I’ve gained more than those 2lbs this month. I’ve not been preparing proper meals or eating nearly enough veg and that’s led to hunger and snacking, especially in the evenings.
I haven’t stepped away from Eating with Integrity – apart from the Roses, everything I’m eating is good, clean, real food. It just isn’t being eaten in the right proportions or at the right times.
When I started this part of my journey, I used a structured food plan. It told me exactly what I was eating for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. All I had to do was write it all down once a week and then work my way through the list, eating every 3 to 4 hours. I even had a cute diary to write it in. I felt great, my skin was clear and I lost weight. Today I’m feeling sluggish (which, in fairness, is partly because I’m on night sedation as I haven’t been sleeping), I’ve got a huge zit on my cheek and I’m gaining weight.
It’s time to get back into the diary, isn’t it?
These are the steps I’m going to take tonight:
- Plan meals for week.
- Make grocery list.
- Order groceries online for delivery tomorrow.
I started this post feeling rather hopeless. But now I have a plan 🙂
