WHAT I’M GOING TO DO WITH MY WINTER WEIGHT
I am pretty sure I’m not the only one that has gained a few pounds over the winter. Now spring and summer is quickly approaching and I’m ready to lose these pounds! I am a little disappointed but it does happen, so I first try to identify how and why I have gained. Personally I have been reverting to a couple of old habits and not being as “strict” as I normally would be. Just because I know what to do doesn’t mean I’ll do it.
- I’M GOING TO SET AND WRITE DOWN A NEW GOAL: there’s nothing wrong with setting new small goals when you get off track. This helps me stay accountable to myself. One thing I always tell my clients is to MOVE FORWARD! No matter how disappointed you are or how much you might have eaten you have to move on.
- I’M GOING BACK TO BASICS: sometimes we all have to revert back to when we started to lose weight or what has worked in the past.
- I’M GOING TO PAY ATTENTION TO EVERYTHING I EAT: I guess this kind of fits into the category of #2. I believe this is how these extra pounds came on. All the little bites and snacks add up! I have allowed myself a couple of extra things that I normally wouldn’t. Some chips, crackers or a little more chocolate than normal.
- I’M FOCUSING ON LABEL SPECIFICS-AGAIN: another huge habit that has always helped me is watching the serving size, how many carbs, sugar, and protein it contains. I need to be more cautious of eating more than I need during the day-and at night!
