I like to eat. Seriously folks, I am surprised I’m not 250 lbs. Thankful I’m not but really I like my food. Since starting this #15bytypea I have had good and bad days. If I go over my calories, I say screw it and eat something else! If I don’t go over I pat myself on the back and reassure myself I can do this. I just wish I didn’t like to eat so much.
My night time is the worst. By 8pm I am ready for a snack. And not one of those healthy snacks. It’s the only time of day that I crave the stuff I shouldn’t have! I am picking rye bread instead of white. A salad instead of a corn dog. Water instead of soda or sweet tea. However, at night my will power is not there! I’ve tried for almost two weeks now.
As for the exercise I am walking on the beach three times a week for two miles each time. However, I have not turned on the kinect… I feel it’s a waste of time because I don’t want to do it by myself. Maybe when the kids get out of school for the summer it will be easier to turn on and do it.
So all considering, I am doing well with it. I know it will take time to get used to eating better. Picking the things that aren’t so high in calories. It will also take time to work on my night time snacks. I know this but it’s still frustrating. I’m sticking with it and still going forward. Like I said, I wish I didn’t like to eat so much! Oh and did I mention I lost two pounds! YAY!
Do you have any tips for me? Are you in the same boat as me with this dieting and exercising?
Blessings to ya’ll!
P.S. Don’t forget next week will be my week of guest bloggers sharing their struggles and tips in blogging.
