I did okay yesterday and today. Yesterday I knew that I would have fast food because I was going to pick up my friend, Donna and we were heading to lunch. Because I can't have ice berg lettuce, I couldn't get a salad, which is what i would have preferred. We went to McDonald's this time instead of Burger King. I got a quarter pounder with cheese and a drink. She did get fries and I did eat a few but I did not get any for me so I didn't have as many as I did a week ago. Today I had Chipotle for dinner. I love the fresh veggies you get with the burrito bowls. It is very yummy. Tomorrow I don't have any lessons so I will do some housework that needs to be done and plan my meals for the week. I will make the plans and then put the menu on the fridge. I am working on planning ahead. I am working on this new plan. So far I think I have done pretty well. I am also going to look at the family room so I can plan out where my elliptical machine will go when the room is finished.
I have decided that I am not going to be weighing myself a lot. Because I want it to be a lifestyle not a diet. I have been on every diet that exists, I think. I am not going to be on another diet because, for me, they don't work and I feel deprived even if I am not. I do use the foodmover from Richard Simmons because it makes sure that I have the correct amount of each food group. I have a tendency not to do that. I often eat more protein than recommended and sometimes more bread. I have worked on not eating so much bread. I love bread, especially fresh baked bread. I don't need butter or anything on it to eat. I have planned a trip a week to get fresh bagels from Tim Horton's. I won't buy more than what I will eat that day. That would defeat my plan. So far, I have been somewhat on my plan. I figure it will take a few weeks for the new plan to set in since I do have some very bad habits. I have gotten in the habit of getting fast food for brunch everyday. That has stopped. One, I can't really afford it and two, well I am positive it has added to my weight gain. I have much to lose. So far the first week has been pretty good. I look forward to the next week with my new menu.
I hope you are having a good day too.
