Do you have a song you can't stop listening to?
I'm feeling a lot better about today. I feel like I have control again. I've also kept busy - a schedule helps me keep to my food goals, and it makes me happy to have lots to do.
- Breakfast: nothing (0)
- Lunch: 1/2 sweet potato (100) + coffee & skim milk (20) = 120
- Snacks/other: sugar-free hard candy (6)
- Dinner (planned): spinach (10), 5 sprays salad dressing (5), 2 tbsp salsa (15), 1/2 cup broccoli (15), laughing cow cheese (35) = 80
- Late snack (planned): fat free yogurt (100)
Total: 306 :)
No formal exercise today, but I did babysit an infant and a toddler for 5 1/2 hours... that's gotta burn something!
Tomorrow, I plan to start the 10 day points diet (photo stolen from Count Down To Skinny).
I'm a sucker for markers of achievement. Gold stars in elementary school? Loved them. In high school, I recalculated my grades and overall GPA for practically every grade I got back in a class. When I was running regularly, I had to have a weekly mileage goal that I worked up to.
In short, this diet fits perfectly with my personality. I love the idea that I'm working up towards some ultimate goal (80 points/day) through smaller, mini-goals, that I get rewarded for (even with intangible "points") when I achieve them.
Maybe I'll change it to be gold stars for me... 10 points = 1 star? I like it.
What helps keep you motivated?
