I stepped on the scale yesterday (or maybe it was the day before?) and I'm back to 215.
I have no one to blame but myself. I have no excuses other than I just didn't try hard enough. I had one (or two) too many trips for fro-yo (topped with lots of candies of course).... I had one too many sodas... I didn't get to the gym except once a week. These are all valid REASONS for my weight gain.
I'm disappointed in myself but moreso I am now more DETERMINED to get under 200lbs.
I am going to start planning meals. It will help with the
1: "What do you want to do for dinner?"
2: "I dunno.."
1: "[Restaurant name?]"
2: "Sounds good."
scenario, which has often played out as of late. I know that I can reward myself for good weeks, but this has got to stop. Even if we don't have a definite PLAN for a specific meal, there needs to be thawed meat in the fridge ready to be cooked. It will also help cut down on wasted food, which has been happening all-too-often as well.
A very inspirational woman I follow over at Fit and Healthy with Debbie has shared pictures almost every Sunday of her weekly prep. Mostly, it looks like breakfast/lunch meals and her snacks for the week (which include things like hummus, hard-boiled eggs, and other clean eating options)
I need to be her. Well, not really, but you know what I mean. I need to prep food, even if it's not as prepped as hers is, maybe start off with a list, but it seems to work for her! So, my plan for today/tomorrow is to plan out next week's food for myself. Breakfast, lunch, snacks, dinner. I know my work schedule, I know John's and Brian's too, so there is NO reason why I can't know what my food schedule is!
So, my goal for this week, plan my meals! Oh- and to not drink another soda AT ALL. This one will be hard!!
