Healthy Eating...

I am doin' better! Just thought I would let you all know. I've got my binging under control now...yay!! So, I decided to do what I do with my clients. I took my measurements, changed my exercise routine, and am focusing on good nutrition...with room for little errors. Because one bad day is NOT the end of the world. If I focus on the good things happening in my life it is easier to treat myself the way that I deserve. I that includes not binging or closet eating. I figured out how many calories I want to eat then zig zagged them. That just means that if I want to eat about 1750 calories daily then instead of eating the same amount day in and day out I change up the numbers while still getting the equivalent of that number for the week. It's hard to explain but this is how it goes:

Monday-1750 calories







This way my body doesn't get used to the calories consumed and start burning less. Same thing happens with exercise. You do the same exercise every day and eventually your body gets more efficient and starts burning less calories during that exercise. So with the zig zagged calorie count, 6 different workouts per week, and a new goal in site I am on the road to controlling my little problem.

Leisa, I've heard GREAT things about that zig-zag method. Lots of people do that with their Weight Watchers points, too. Thanks for the update and keep up the good work!

This looks like it would be really effective!

Speaking of calories, it's about time we set up dinner again, don't you think? We may have to do it on your Wednesday night, was that the bigger calorie day? I'm up for Cafe Rio, or wherever!!
