I decided to break out my Points Plus scale tonight and get back on the program of weighing my lean protein and carbohydrates like brown rice etc. Why am I doing this?
I know some of you are like what shes doing well? Well I am doing ok. In my opinion during any health journey you start to get cocky and you start to slack off. It happens to the best of us and you know what it has been happening to me a lot lately. more than I have wanted to admit to myself or any of you.
Do I know why? Yep. Am I making excuses? Nope. I have been working so hard training so much for this half marathon that it is causing me to say to myself 'hey you ran a lot this week go ahead have an extra piece of chicken breast' or 'sure have an extra coffee today you are tired'. All of this has led to me not meeting my goals for the Power of One challenge and not sticking to my normal consistent 8 pounds lost each month. In Janurary I lost 5.6lbs and for me this is just unacceptable.
So all I know is this: I can be better, I can get to goal weight and I know how to do it. So I am going back to basics week 1 Weight Watchers mentality. I cooked my chicken tonight and weighed it on the scale, I knew it was 4 points this time and felt good about it. I weighed my brown rice 3 points worth, this is all I needed and mixed it with some veggies to make it more filling. And I had a nice dinner. And I will keep doing this because this is what works. I will track every single bite every single day.
I know I will get to 100 pounds lost very soon. 10 more to go, and then about 7 till I reach my lifetime goal Weight Watchers weight of 145. I must be a lifetime member by Fitbloggin :)
