Challenge: Lose the Baby Weight. WEEK 5. Weighing In
No weight loss for the second week in a row.
I blame Easter–with it’s chocolatey goodness. I blame ham…rum cake…and scalloped potatoes.
I stuck to my workouts, but my diet completely fell short.
This week’s topic? Accountability.
When working as a dietitian, all of my patients came to this point at one time or another. They were active, eating healthy for the most part…and nothing was happening. I always gave them the same advice. Take a week–write down every bite you take and every minute of activity and study it.
Writing down your food and activity serves two purposes. It makes you aware of what is happening and it makes you accountable. I may have had a salad for lunch, but the benefits were lost when I snagged a few Reese’s peanut butter eggs in the afternoon. My run was cancelled out by a cheese burger…etc…When I know that every bite has to be accounted for I think twice before the handful of pretzels with Morgan in the afternoon or choose an apple over chips. It keeps me focused.
I have one week left before our first vacation, so my vow is to write down my food intake this week and to be accountable.
Good luck everyone!
