Evaluation of my nutrition plan

Saturday, March 30, 2013

When I take a look at my nutrition plan I see that there are some changes I still want to make to my diet and I also want to make some occasional things a normal way of doing things.
I haven’t been eating well within my range. I need to work to get back on track and eat within my calorie range.
I have increased my veggies by eating salad and carrot sticks for work lunches. I have had protein shakes for breakfast mixed with fruit and have had fruits for snacks or to go with my lunches during the week and have been surprised that I have been ok through breakfast and lunch. I have found that by the time I am heading home and getting home I am starving, and eat an early supper. If supper isn’t easily prepared or ready when I get home, I have been losing my mind and throw off my day.
This has been something I have been noticing.
I am doing well with the water intake.
In the past few weeks I have had some unhealthy things in the house which has added some temptation. Such as a jar of frosting in my fridge. I would grab a spoon of it here or there. Then I decided not to indulge and ran it under water to clean the container for recycling. The container was about half full and the frosting did not break down!!! I soaked it changed the water, and it didn’t go away. I then realized – What am I putting in me!!!! I was disgusted to see this.
I have been making sugar cookies lately and so there have been a lot of that around. I have eaten them here and there. I made a ton of them to test how they are if they are frozen. Then I sent the cookies with my husband to his work. His co-workers were very happy, and I was happy to have them out of the house. I am going to be making these cookies for Abi’s graduation party at the end of June, which is why I have had so many because I am trying to see what happens if I make them in advance, and then I made them with the girls for St. Patty’s Day, and then we had them before that for Christmas….so they have just been here a lot.
I still like my fried or salty foods. I make popcorn once a week and I eat way too much of it. Sometimes that is my dinner on Thursday nights. Or I get a rotisserie chicken and a salad from the grocery store for my Thursday night dinner.
I have made a lot of good choices, but I make a lot of bad choices too. I think I feel like for all the good choices I make I should be ok when I indulge, but that is not the case. My bad choices negatively impact the good choices I have been making to the point where I stay at a standstill in my weight loss journey.
This inventory has been very helpful, but it is also sad because I still haven’t changed my diet enough to lose this weight. It is very hard being the only person on a diet in my home, and I haven’t had success in this because I haven’t put my mind to it and I haven’t fought hard enough through it. If weight loss is mental and not physical…where is my mind at???

    Sounds like you are working through your issues. I'm in the same place. You were so enthusiastic about this way of eating. When you figure out your "why" mindset, please post! It will probably help many of us.
    Have a great Easter!
