no weigh-in this week
I chickened out and basically am delaying the inevitable. I have totally blown it with my diet. I had a couple of Hershey bars, and I've eaten some rice with a few meals, some pasta and my son brought home some homemade bread from the care facility, that was delicious with some butter. I know my addiction. It's chocolate, breads, pasta and rice. (Jasmine being my favorite) I still fit into my size 10 pants - so I haven't noticed anything there - I just hope I can at least lessen the sting by getting back to following the program this week. Proteins and green veggies! My sore toe keeps me from doing to much of a power walk - I am literally pussy-footing around, babying this toe which is starting to get to me. I can walk on it fine - but when I start jogging or dancing hard, it starts to hurt. I knew toes were important but this is crazy.
My approach to eating and dieting is this: I try to not eat any processed foods if I can help it although I am not a fanatic. I don't feel at this time, that I need to be. One thing that I have totally knocked out, that I knew was making me belly-fat was drinking a cola, twice a day. Since I have always hated diet-drinks, I went for the regular coke. Just by cutting that out, and only having one as a treat, has made a difference in my weight-loss. I have since had maybe one of two since Jan, and while they were good, and cold, I noticed how sweet they really are and I really don't like sweet as much as I used to.
Also, when I am making a meal - I look for a more natural "starch" or carbohydrate to enhance my meal. Meat, a green veggie and yellow squash, or corn, or a small potato - rather than pasta or rice. If I do rice, I am trying to do brown. But even with the brown-rice, I try to limit how much of that in a week that I eat.
So I know what I have done wrong - and I am trying to play catch up so that next week's weigh in won't be THAT bad. If I could only break even I would be thrilled.
Vacations and getting away, even just for a few days, can really mess me up.

scary If you've been following me, you would know I am not that social of a person. I used to be a social butterfly at one time...
