Weigh In Wednesday
Not much to brag about this week. My favourite trick to lose weight and stay on track has always been to have a "cheat" meal every week. There are a number of reasons for this: first, it tricks your body into thinking it's not actually starving (this is very important, especially if you are limiting yourself to very few calories per day). Second, it gives me something to look forward to every week - sort of a reward for doing a good job all week.
Obviously, you don't want to undo all the great work you did so you don't go crazy like have a jumbo pizza and fries all to yourself, but you eat something yummy that's a little too high in fat or sugar for your regular diet.
Well this week, I had a cheat WEEKEND!!! So not one meal like I'm supposed to, but 5 huge, fatty but oh so yummy meals... Not good and the results for this weigh in show it.
Goal: - 30 lbs
This week: - 0 (yes a bit fat zero loss)
Total: - 14.5 lbs
Needless to say, I was a little disappointed with myself, but the goal is to be on track 90% of the time. So back to work I go!
And I leave you today with an awesome quote for us folks who say there's no time to exercise or no time to make a good healthy meal tonight... "If it's important, you make time. If its not, you make excuses."
