So last week I secretly decided to start writing down everything I ate. Not even necessarily tracking how many calories. Just getting in the habit of writing it on paper.
Day 1-3 GREAT.
Day 4 (Friday) Morning and Lunch went well. Went out Friday night. I kinda sorta wrote it down but in the midst of fun and drinks I may have skipped some things.
Day 5 (Saturday) Yeah I wrote it down, wasn't pretty. Wasn't pretty at all!
Day 6 (Sunday) I'd rather forget it! ATE WAY WAY TOO MUCH
So there is the trend. M-F when I am at work (a controlled environment) I eat well, stay within my calories, drink my water.
Sat and Sun - I overeat, I indulge, I don't drink water.
The sad part is I won't write it down. As if writing it down makes it official. NO..eating it makes it official. If its already eaten, why NOT write it down. Probably because its a smack in the face. Admitting that I've failed...
As much as I had to admit the reason why I am in a plateau, I already know whats wrong. My eating sucks! I mean I eat whatever I want to. As the weight comes off, I must also lower my calorie intake. What has worked before (as far as eating) does not work any more. OBVIOUSLY.
When will I learn? No wonder I ALWAYS get stuck in this 210 range. This is my comfortable place.
There is no way I can keep up working out 90 minutes a day. I tried to work off the extra calories. No that doesn't work. It takes both diet and exercise to lose weight.
I need to start tracking. I need to stick with my plan. I need to track (at least write down and track later) what I eat on the weekends
