Day 173 Need To Get A Handle

Ok, this is how I am going to take care of this. I have a concern. Over the holidays I made a conscious decision that on the actual holidays, I would eat, not with reckless abandon, but allow myself to eat. And that was fine. But I am not sure I like that I opened that door, or at least as soon as I did. I know that skinny people don't fret over one day spent eating a little more than usual. And I don't know that i have a legitimate gripe against myself per se, but if I am concerned, I should address it I think. I went to my friend Jason's tonight to watch the Hogs play in the Sugar Bowl. I had been spot on for my food all day and left 500 calories to indulge a little in whatever Jason may be offering. I used a 1000 calories on indulgence instead. I got to 2300 calories, which I know is not an incredible beat yourself up number, but I feel that this allowing myself habit could be detrimental. Soooo, as is the purpose of this blog, I am using it to set myself straight by talking to ya'll. I want a good solid MONTH of eating without indulgence out of myself, so I am telling ya'll about it so I can be accountable. I want spot on, no overages whatsoever eating from today, January 4, 2011 until February 4, 2011. 1800 calories a day regardless. That is how this train tracks for the next 30 days. Can I get some help fellow bloggers? Keep me accountable!

  1. You are right. If you think it's a problem, then it's a good thing you address it. I love to see people who take ownership and are aware of their bodies. I know you can stay within 1800 calories for a month. I'll be cheering for you!

  2. I know exactly--all about this powerful dynamic. You can beat it Shane...You're not just limiting yourself until the next opportunity to eat more...you're redefining your relationship with food. You have a wonderful plan. 1800 a day + exercise=success...everytime.
    My best to you always,
    Sean
