I went shopping yesterday and got a bunch of yummy foods for my soon to be low carb diet (Basically following the South Beach principles). I have decided that I am going to wait until next Monday to start this merely because I am so busy after work every day with finishing up Christmas errands and stuff that I don't have the prep time to start right now. I have devised a plan that on Sundays I will plan out my meals for the week (so I have no excuse to buy food out) and then prepare certain things and freeze them for the week to cut down on cooking. The hubby has to have some kind of starch with every meal so I will be having to prepare seperate meals on some occasions and making my own meals ahead of time will be much more convenient.
But instead of going crazy and using this as an excuse to eat anything and everything in sight I am going back on my Click shakes for the rest of the week and this weekend. I think I will do 2 shakes a day like before and then 1 regular meal. That way I'm not being too over-indulgent in holiday foods. I just don't want to gain the weight back that I lost over the last month in a the span of a week. I have been eating very freely and I don't like the lack of control I feel when I have options all the time. I have realized since doing the shakes and then stopping them that when I plan I stick to. If I don't bring lunch with me to work I am more likely to eat poorly because I have the option to. It's sad but true. In a way I hate that because I hate feeling like I have to constantly plan ahead to stick to this. But ya gotta do what ya gotta do if you want it bad enough! So I will just have to suck it up and deal with it. I have to be a planner and that's that.
Menu for today:
Breakfast: click shake
Lunch: Didn't realize I only enough for one shake today and ended up eating 1/2 of a turkey Quiznos sandwich that was provided by our custodian as a gift to the bank. I ate a couple of original flavored sun chips too. Wasn't very hungry but my stomach said otherwise. I hate that empty, stomach churning feeling you get when you have nothing in your stomach.
Snack: Strawberry greek yogurt with a sprinkle of walnuts
Dinner: click shake
That's that! Thank you lovely followers for being so loyal and friendly!!!
