As I said yesterday, I need to be a little more thoughtful and proactive about my eating. Lately I go into situations where I estimate food amounts and macros only to be surprised by numbers when I enter them in MFP. I either try to make up for these meals by cutting back at the next or just blowing my goals outright... I know that's how things go sometimes, but I need to be more consistent if I want to increase my average weekly loss (and I do!)
I'm taking the girls on a fast trip to Washington and everyone needs to be on their best behavior. Look for us in the crowd we'll be marching. I am really happy to be doing something to show where I stand and help contribute to a constructive platform for those of us that feel shut out from the new administration. I was SO distressed after the election... I want my girls to know that their vote matters and whoever is elected needs to be held accountable to all citizens not just the ones that put him in office. And that's enough politics.
For the trip - fruit if I need something sweet. Cut veggies, rolled ham slices. NO MORE BARS. Starbucks is my car treat (love a flat white) and that's it.... For now, I'm making fish tacos (with lettuce instead of shells for me) boiled eggs for breakfast, and veggies to snack if needed. I'm taking a break from ALL processed sugars and trying to keep my carbs under 100... Let's see if that helps me lose at least a pound next week!
