Day 15 is a little over half-way done. I didn’t get a chance for breakfast so my wife and I split a Chipotle burrito and some chips. Surprisingly decent calories and fat when you only eat half and you don’t pile on the cheese and no sour cream. Plus, I love their burritos.
I’m realizing very quickly how mundane losing weight can be. Nobody really cares how you’re doing. In fact, some people actually want you to fail it seems. I do my best to not talk about my challenge with others. Especially around meal times. For some reason, even when you tell them you’re watching what you eat, they think they still need to keep pushing food your way. Oh well. My strategy is always to just fill my plate as much as I can with veggies and such, making sure I also include some of the other more wonderful morsels that I shouldn’t be eating. Who says you have to eat them? Even better, I simply just take small amounts, like really really small amounts.
Anyway, today is a work from home day, so I won’t get a chance to go in to the gym. So, two days in a row with now workout. Again, my weigh in this week will likely be somewhat less stellar than the two previous weeks. Gotta be ok with that though.
I’ll end this with a piece of advice that I’m finding has been extremely helpful.
Plan your entire days meals the night before. Plan the time, roughly of when you will eat each meal. Include snacks in your planning. This way, you have goals to attain. You just need to wait until mid-morning to have your snack. Then, don’t eat anything early.
This may not be the best advice in the world, but for some reason, this is really working for me right now.
