I slept most of yesterday. I think the quality of my sleep, when I do sleep, must not be so great.
I got my haircut. I asked to have it all one length and I think that may have been a mistake. Without layers it might have less volume. We’ll see.
I’ve gained this week. No surprises there. I’ve eaten like a horse at night. And the chili isn’t working for me. One serving of it doesn’t keep me satiated. I foolishly threw away all of my eggs.
I don’t know what’s left to try. I used to make big batches of that 5 can soup. I could try that. It had diced tomatoes, corn, black beans, vegetable soup, and minestrone, if memory serves.
Maybe I’ll do that.
I have another food that’ll have to go in the lock box: apple fruit pies. So good. So high in points.
Maybe if I go in right now, and try to track my whole week ahead of time. Would that help? I’ve done it before, last Thanksgiving week, and lost weight that week. Let’s try that.
Okay, I was only able to track breakfast and snacks right now, because I have to get the ingredients for the soup to track them, and dinners are a question mark, need Derek’s input. But at least I’ve done something.
If I would just track all my food, I would be successful. What is getting in my way? Laziness? Lack of motivation?
I should be motivated out of my mind, right now.
I just have to stop saying it and start doing it. Clearly, I can do this. I’ve done it. Several times.
So I’m just going to buckle down and do it, that’s it. I’m going to have to stay strong and say no to Door Dash. We can’t afford it, anyway. No to cereal for breakfast. No to mooching snacks and then buying more of them, only to eat those snacks, too.
Derek, maybe you can help me plan out the whole week of dinners ahead of time, figuring in appointments, in-office days and whatnot? It would almost certainly save us money. Probably help you lose the rest of your 20 pounds, too.
I just Googled five can soup and found the recipe. Now I can track my lunches, too.
Good, now I feel like I’m getting somewhere.
