Today was the third day in a row that I walked for 15 minutes. I have been pretty tired all day, I am so inactive that this is really challenging me! I have been doing the inflight movies yesterday and today, I'm not sure I can keep that up. For right now, I am just going to stick to my walking for the rest of the week and see how that goes.

Yesterday I went off script for my meal plan. For one thing, I had forgotten about my monthly lunch out with a friend, and so my lunch did not go as planned. I did eat a very healthy lunch though, salmon, veggie stir fry and rice. Then, I did not look at my plan for the rest of the day until supper time, so my snacks went wayward. This morning a realization came to me while I was evaluating the reasons for my slip. The biggest change I can make to help myself eat to my plan is by prepping my food for the next day each evening. Making sure that all of my snacks are portioned out and located in a convenient spot in the fridge, and being aware of the activities involved in the day will make it a breeze! That is my plan starting tonight. Preview my Thursday food and stage it in the fridge and on the counter.

I am trying to take a closer look at why I am not able to stick with my goal of tracking my food. Part of the problem is that when I eat something I find difficult to measure or determine serving size, such as shelled nuts or Christmas candy, it puts me off of tracking because it is a bother. A solution: don't eat the Christmas candy, there is nothing of value there. For the nuts, I can create a portion of each kind of nut, measure it for weight before I eat it, and that way I am not eating mindlessly. Another thing that really helped me in the past was to plan my food on my tracker and write it in my journal before hand in order to prevent temptation and avoid pitfalls. When you fail to plan, you plan to fail!
3 personal tips:
Stop eating Christmas candy
Portion, weigh and track any shelled nuts before eating them.
Create a food plan ahead of time.
Hopefully this will help with my current weekly goal.
