Several people have asked about my Silhouette, so I thought I’d post a little video of it in action. Yes, that’s hammering in the background. Our friend Doug is working on our front door. This is my first video post, so please be gracious! :O)
Meal planning is one of those things I know I need to do, but I am so lazy about it. I need to meal plan to save money for our family (currently just Husby and me), and I need to meal plan so I’m prepared to make good decisions.
This is a biggie. Why am I eating? If I would ask myself that every time I eat something, I’d probably start shedding pounds. Most of the time I eat isn’t for nutrition.
Most people who have been successful with weight loss will tell you they kept food journals. A food journal can be a very eye opening thing. “What? You mean I ate 4,000 calories today? I had no idea.”
Day 6 was about a support system. Accountability is linked very closely to that support system. In addition to needing people who will encourage me, I need people who will help me see where I’m slipping. I need people who will ask me the tough questions, expecting answers. People who will ask me what I ate for breakfast (sadly, I started out with candy corn and peanuts this morning). People who will ask me how many times I went to the gym last week (twice? I think.). Then they’ll take their questions a step further. When I answer that I ate candy corn and peanuts for breakfast, they’ll ask me what changes I need to make so I’ll make a better decision next time.
