I'm not one to make excuses and accept things though. That was the old me. The old me could justify anything, and I will NOT let myself go there again. The past few days I've been feeling the old me trying to resurface.. I've been eating more, and I'm not even hungry. I know it's head hunger. Head hunger is pure evil! So, I'm spending the day making a conscious effort to only eat when I'm hungry, or when I should be eating (ie. lunch). I'm cutting out snacking. If I have head hunger, I will go get myself a cup of calorie free coffee. I'm so close to goal and I will not let the old me sabotoge the new me. I like the new me much better!
In a nutshell, here's my focus for the weekend:
- Work out - whether it's bike riding, walking, the gym.. get a good hour to two hours of sweaty, calorie-burning activity over the weekend.
- No Snacking! Weekends are usually not a problem for me.. it's while I'm at work.. but I want to add this anyways.. lol
- Plan my meals for next week and grocery shop. This is a huge downfall for me. I need to plan every meal, and get snacks that are good for me. Cheese Nips be gone!
- Get my liquids in.... I am a HUGE slacker when it comes to getting my water in. HUGE! I can honestly say that there have been maybe 5 days since surgery where I have gotten at least 64 ounces of water in. This is not good!
I think that's good for now - I don't want to overwhelm myself more than usual! LOL
As far as fun things for the weekend go, I'm not sure what John and I are doing tonight.. Hopefully something low-key and relaxed, as I'm feeling exhausted! Tomorrow, we're going for our weekly bike ride with some friends if the weather cooperates. Tomorrow evening is our monthly game night at Michelle's house. They're always lots of fun! I will allow myself to have a drink or two, but I will not go overboard! :) Then, Sunday will hopefully be another low-key kind of day! :)
Hope you all have great weekends! I'm usually not a poster on the weekends, so I'll be catching up on blogs today and Monday! :)
