Thinkin Out Loud Thursday, August 20th
So it’s been an interesting week...as frustrating as it may have been I have had a plan and have tried to stay with my meal plan. Unfortunately, not everything I had planned this week worked out like I had planned, but I have made it work. Tonight seems to be the only night that I don’t have anything in the crockpot or pre-cooked for dinner. Last night’s dinner was a little more processed than I normally make right before weigh in, but it is what it is. I am trying to get a little more used to the meal planning and meal prepping. I have been reading Choose More, Lose More for Life by Chris Powell. I have not made a final decision as to whether I will start carb cycling, but I think if I am doing it in conjunction with WW (since most of the approved list is the same) that it might help me get moving in the right direction. There are definitely concepts in this book that I have read in other books/articles as well that I think definitely have some value. It talks about starting small and keeping promises to yourself. And I, like so many others, have not done well with that and it's time to change that.
Tonight's weigh in, was not too bad. I lost 0.6 this week. Considering I've been experiencing heel pain lately, I'm not going to complain too much. I've not been pushing to get to the gym or anything this week. I am hoping that it will feel better in the coming week. I have been trying to stretch it out every time I think about it. Once a final decision is made about carb cycling, I will post it. I will definitely be taking parts of the book to heart though regarding promises to myself and setting SMART Goals. I hope everyone has a great evening! Enjoy your Friday! :-)
