Spring Challenge Showering Lilies Week 3
I lost all my self control this week with Easter and all the candy and starting a new job for the first time in 5 years. The amount of food I have consumed for this week is ridiculous and I know it needs to stop or I will never lose this weight and I will just get bigger and bigger!!! My calorie goal that I set for myself after much research is 2000 a day since I am nursing and trying to work out 5 times a week. So here is my food log for the week! I am ashamed and embarrassed but I will overcome this part of my life and this will all be a vague distant memory.

Well I did completely horrible and I eat like this most of the time so its a wonder I don’t weigh 500 lbs!!! I did however gain back 4lbs this week and my calories had a lot to do with it but also sodium makes me bloat up like a balloon. My goal for the next week is to hit my calorie goals and exercise goal and watch my sodium super close! I feel yucky about my food choices but I am so thankful that every day is a new chance to get it right.

    MT Moonchaser, lol glad you feel better about your eating, ;) I am trying to reign it in this week but so far I have been over on day one and wayyyy over on day two, I swear I just dont want to eat anything for the rest of the week. I can go for a long while on an empty stomach but once I get some food down.....man its like a bottomless pit!! Thanks for the encouragement mom4hockey :)

    Holidays with all the goodies and big delicious family dinners are hard for everyone! On the upside,,you've owned up to it and are holding yourself accountable! That's half the battle!! Setting your calorie goal is a great place to start and your very good about keeping track so I know you can do it !!

    Hey, at least you made me feel better about MY eating this week...

    My weigh-in is Sunday morning, so we'll see what that brings.

    Probably the same as last week, hopefully no worse.
