For future reference, I won't be posting multiple times daily. I just started off a little off balance trying to get this thing going.
Okay the calorie tally for the day wound up being 1875 and it really wasn't that traumatic. I was hungry a couple of times today but not starving. And to add to my activity level, I also push mowed the front yard for about 40 minutes and worked up a decent sweat. While doing that I was thinking about how great the meal planning diet was going and trying to remember how that plan fell to the way side. Then it kinda dawned on me, I took the first chance to sabotage it. We have been playing catch up financially since vacation and one week we were up against the wall, so I told Kathy we would have to go back to eating the junk food we usually do for a bit cause it was cheaper. That is classic Shane rationalizing at its very best. That is exactly the behavior I am hoping to change. I also started thinking about the fact that I have a heck of a hill to climb based on the fact that I just like food, I mean it gives me pleasure to eat a hot dog and taste it and savor it, I get giddy at the idea of some Simple Simon's pizza, the meat lovers. Food is not only a weapon against my feelings and emotions, it is, for lack of a better description, it is a hobby for me. Wow, this blogging thing makes me think alot! I better put this thing to bed before my brain overheats from all the thinking. Night all.
