This whole lose 15 pounds before I go on vacation isn't really working people. I'm struggling with the whole "stop pigging out" thing. I can't stop pigging out. I'm entering my food into my Lose It! app and stopping at 1,550 calories seems damn need impossible. I know one of the problems was that we had too many snack foods in the house. Unhealthy snack foods that I just can't resist so getting rid of those is a must. If they aren't there, I can't eat them and will turn to healthier, lower calorie snacks to fill my cravings.
As for the exercise....well last week was amazing. I worked out Monday-Friday in the mornings and got in a stellar workout Sunday afternoon. I was in that gym for nearly 2 hours. It was great! I rewarded myself with Monday off. I worked Monday night and got home late so I knew a Tuesday morning workout would be out of the question. I told myself I would go for a 2 mile walk when I got home and use our Total Gym machine as well. No. That didn't happen. Ok, I'll go Wednesday morning. No. That didn't happen either. Thursday morning was out of the question because I was spending the night at my sister's house after watching my nieces. Now it is Thursday and I haven't been to the gym all week long. DREADFUL.
I WILL go to bed early tonight. I WILL sleep in my workout clothes. I WILL wake up at 3:40 and workout for 90 minutes. I WILL. I don't have a choice. This has to happen. I WILL go to the store this weekend and seek out low calorie snacks that will fill me up (hard to do for this picky eater).
I'm in a bit of a time crunch now with this 15 pound weight loss and instead of beating myself up for not accomplishing it, I know I will be happy with 10 pounds, which is significant and a bit easier given that my adjustment period has now lasted 2 weeks.
I shall report back on this topic next week with good results, I hope.
