Same mistakes again and again...

Monday, March 21, 2011

As the start of another week, I look forward to Friday already. Not only is it my day off but it’s also weigh day. This weekend I’ve not been on my best behaviour. I’ve snacked at night – and too much. We also had take out on Saturday night. I really need to start working on my discipline. The nightly snacking is basically undoing all the good work I do during the rest of the day, including the workouts I’m doing.

I also think I need to stop buying peanuts! But if it’s not peanuts it would be something else... I think peanuts have become my surrogate chocolate!

At night, I often sit and watch TV or a DVD. Usually it’s a DVD from the library, maybe a movie I’ve requested or a TV series. Again I keep telling myself I need to pick up the crochet set I have bought myself and get stuck in. However, I think that maybe it’s a bit tricky to learn when I’m watching TV or a movie. Maybe I should just accept it – start to teach myself when we’re watching something I don’t find too interesting, so I can multi-task.

I also find I’m snacking less if I do something physical in the evenings (but this doesn’t include wii). For example, last Tuesday we took the girls swimming after work to the local pool. The only problem was that the girls were super-hungry when we got home and cried while I was cooking dinner. We will have to come up with a plan for that – maybe granola bars ready for the journey home to keep them ticking over until dinner is ready. Although I think my little one is living on granola bars at the moment – she is a fussy eater and often leaves her dinner and doesn’t eat much of her lunch.

I am doing well with my writing. I did a little more yesterday and am definitely doing more and thinking about it a lot more than I was before.

But – to get to my goal for October – being healthy and slim, I am getting off track more and more each week. I know my downfall and I seem to write about it each time I blog, yet nothing changes. I’m frustrating myself no end. I still am yet to start my visual collage but hopefully I can get onto that this week.

I got up this morning at 5.30 and felt good about doing my 80s aerobic workout DVD. I’m hoping to feel good enough (and not tired) to go to the circuit training class tonight.

I can do this... and I need to fight my night time cravings!

    I find that if I start I cannot stop. So even though the peanuts or whatever call my name I grab a big glass of water, pop a piece of gum in my mouth and ignore that inner demon. I work to hard during the day to undo all my work in an hour. Good luck to you.

    I am doing the same thing right now, over snacking at night. I have been sick and for some reason I want comfort food, even though I know it's going to make the scale go up. Maybe the warm weather will make a difference.
