So I have to be honest. If I am going to write this, and make my life believable AT ALL, I am going to have to moan, bitch, and whine sometimes.

I am so frustrated with my eating right now. It seems to be the one thing that I cannot get back on track with.

I get 2 really good meals in each day, and then at some point, stress overwhelms me, and I blow it by eating. It has been so long since I let stress and the refrigerator go hand in hand. Ugh. I am doing my workouts again, so thankfully I am not paying for the calories on my waist, except I can't seem to lose any because I can't get out of the rut.

I let myself have the summer off of my rigorous eating schedule. Trying to count calories while at the hospital was terrible. Then we started eating out a ton because we were SO busy working on the estate, but I just can't seem to turn it around. I am craving CRAP again, and usually giving in to the cravings... grrr.

So here are my eating goals for this week:
1. I will only eat dinner out on Friday and Saturday night.
2. I will not go out to lunch at all this week.
3. I will log every meal on Calorie Count for 7 days.

There, nothing too fancy. Just laying it out there. I will let you know how it goes. Does this happen to you? Do you have any suggestions for getting yourself motivated again? I would love to hear any advice you would like to offer...


  1. I don't have any suggestions at the moment other than what you're already planning (which sounds excellent) - just letting you know that I'm with you! This pregnancy I have been craving sugar sugar sugar (and in between, carbs covered in cheese) and I cannot seem to stop caving in to the cravings - especially on a rough day with the kids when the chocolate just calls my name. I keep trying to remind myself that I need to eat healthily NOW and not just 'fix it when the baby comes' but I seriously think I go through withdrawal without my sugar :p Good luck, I'll have to take a little motivation from you to get back on track too.

  2. I haven't been of any help either, it's always easier to turndown a craving when someone else is sacrificing with you, at least for me. I will stick to your rules as well!! I will also keep you motivated!
