Today I update where I am in my weight loss goals. Once again I see where tracking things is helping me see things that need to change.
I eat less on the weekends because I'm with my girlfriend, and I am a bit more active. Then during the week I tend to fall victim of emotional eating. The bad news is I just seem to lose control and I eat somewhat healthy snacks (like 60 calorie jell-o pudding). The bad news is I will eat 4 of those during the day. So if you can't control yourself the alternative is to stop buying it. If its not in the house, I can't eat it. This is a sad realization, but its true.
The road I drive to school is packed with fast food locations. Consequently, I've been driving a different route home to afford temptation. I am also packing a lunch so I'm driving paste these places when I'm hungry. It's all about planning ahead.
The other thing I noticed is the “problem time” for me. It's typically after 7 pm I start snacking and just keep making return trips to the refrigerator. Again, this is fruit, and other low calorie snacks. The bad news is you have 6 or seven of these the calories add up. I don't know if I'm bored, I don't know if I'm stressed, but the bottom line is I am falling apart in the evenings. My solution? I'm going to exercise during this time. This will give me a positive and make me feel good for doing the right thing. I won't want to go snack and “undo” all the good that I did by exercising. So for now, I'm going to be exercising during my times when I appear weak to food.
The bottom line is if you can see your weaknesses you can come up with a plan to change them. Don't get hung up on the fact that you have a weakness. It's going to be temporary.
