I'm proud to say that my eating has been totally under control the last few days. I haven't binged. I've made healthy choices with my food. I'm happy with my start.

Now just to keep the momentum going. :-)

I'm going to sit down and actually make a plan out for my next week. I sat down with both my work schedule and Todd's work schedule and I planned out our meals (and thus also our grocery list). I know taht when I have a set menu, it's easier to stick with it, both at home and with resisting the urge to go out to eat. Not that eating out is bad....but I'm eating healthy more nutritionally sound foods at home. (we eat naturally and organically at home......restaurants don't typically offer that option....not to mention that I just plain eat more fruits and veggies at home). SO I have that lined up. Now I just need to look at my schedule and actually pencil in some workout times. Tuesday and Wednesday evenings are already accounted for with my Zumba that's good. But 2 workouts a week, even though they have my heart rate up and all that jazz, are just not going to cut it. I also recognize that if I look back through my history of weight loss, that when I was losing and doing well......I was not only eating right, I was exercising pretty regularly. SOooooo I've deemed that it's time to start back with that.

Had a problem with my right foot at Zumba last night. It hurt to high heavens....kinda crampy...but not quite a cramp. Go figure. I'm going to see if getting a nice pair of insoles help. We are on a floor.....tiled, but probably concrete that's not good.

I'm in total agreement! The only way for me to not binge is to know exactly what i'm eating before i start. It does take time but i've learned that at least for me it's the only way.
Hope the foot it feeling better soon.
Hey two workouts a week is better than none!

I've noticed with my binges that they come in spurts. Sometimes the urge will last for a day - sometimes a month - sometimes longer. But when you get in that good groove of eating healthy, exercising and doing good things for your body, you feel SO MUCH BETTER.

Good luck to you! I hope your foot feels better, too!!

It's great that you started the momentum. And 2 days of workouts are good, but I understand about your desire to add more to your week. I am the same way, although I find during summer, it's a tad more difficult to keep to my workout schedule due to summer activities/events, etc.

Hope your foot gets better.

I plan ahead too - even if its only for a few days at a time -- its so much easier to do that than have to think about the 'what - where, when and how much thing all the time.

Its good to get organised - helps that ol 'control' feeling thingy whatsit!
