I have to admit I have not written down everything exactly and I've been slacking on portion control. I got through phases where it's easy to be OP and then it feels so, so hard. And the last time I lost weight I was so focused that being OP was truly easy for me. But I'm just struggling to get back in that zone. I don't want to feel fat anymore. I don't want to feel so enslaved to food like I do now. I just want some consistency and control. And I know that I have the power to do that for myself. I just need to focus. I feel good about my exercise. I've been really consistent with that and enjoy it. So I need to come up with a plan.
Last week I tried to divide 5 mini meals into 5 pts a piece. It worked well the first few days and then there were times when i needed to spend more at one meal and conserve at another and it just messed me up. That and I can tell that I do better OP when I get sleep. And Shepherd has been all over the place with sleep lately. Not that that's an excuse, but that's just where I'm at.
Despite the lack of movement on the scale, I do feel different in my jeans. They are looser. So that's a positive.
Here's my tracker so far today:
Luna: 4 pts
Coffee with cream, sugar: 2 pts
Salmon burger on a whole wheat bun: (8 pts)
Green beans: 2 pts (olive oil)
Potatoes: 4 pts
Sips of coke: 1 pt
So, 21 pts so far.
Dinner will be around 10 pts and then maybe a snack. I'm going to skip exercise tonight and substitute sleep. I'm so tired.
Tomorrow I'm planning on running again with the man child.
