Weekly Goals

Being up 1lb for last week encouraged me to make some goals for this week. I'm not making any promises, but here they are:

Do not eat more calories than allowed even when working out technically gives me more calories. I'm going to try to stick to my 23 points/day or 1383 calories per day every day and not go over or use WAP or AP.

Stop the BLT's or the Bites, Licks, and Tastes. If I want something, fine- - take out the correct portion and account for it. No more just trying things out. It doesn't work.

Don't eat grapes for the week. I think those make me gain weight. I'm serious.

Cut the carbs (bad form) and sugar. I'm going to try to eat more wholly this week and eat less sweets and desserts.

NEVER EAT YOGURT COVERED RAISINS OR CHOCOLATE COVERED PLUMS AGAIN. I have no will power with these things and will easily eat the entire bag/container in one sitting. This, obviously, is unacceptable. I think I need to give them up like I have donuts. It's just not worth it.

Try to allow for peanuts/peanut butter because I *love* it and it makes me happy.

Realize that, sometimes, it's okay to be hungry. I am in the process of retraining my brain and body and hunger is a very nasty side effect.

Try to come up with something that keeps my hands busy. I don't have a lot of down time, but when I do- - I like to snack. This has led to mindless eating.

I didn't wake up early enough to do the Shred this morning. Well, I did. But I didn't want to get out of bed. I knew I would have time this afternoon, so I'm going to do it while I wait to switch the clothes (Wednesday is laundry day at the house) over to the dryer. While the clothes are in the dryer I'm heading out on a run. I'm hoping to go for 9miles, but we'll see how I'm feeling. I have all day to gear myself up for it.
