Trim Healthy Mama & Me: Refocus
There is a reason why I am on a health plan. I have bad habits and make poor choices. I have done so well on the Trim Healthy Mama plan, so you would think I would know it works and just do it. Nope.... although I have stuck with it I have gotten very laxed after losing my first major goal of 30 pounds lost. I actually lost another 5+ but I got too comfortable and we did some traveling. During that travel time I made some really poor choices. I let myself keep having cheats here and there and they finally caught up with me, Try as I may I just could not get my focus back but last week I made a recommitment to making better choices and stopping the excuses. I also am not going to be weighing for awhile. I have discovered that I use that scale the wrong way. If I don't lose weight, I tell myself it is impossible even though I know better. And, if I do lose weight, I tell myself that I that the cheats won't hurt. Of course, I know that is wrong, too.
I have been back on track for one week now. I can't tell my scale progress since I am not weighing but I am focusing on my commitment level right now. I will call my week a success even though it was not perfect. I had a couple of "moments" but I quickly reminded myself to focus on my goals.
One thing that really helps is to have some quick meal options available. One of my favorite things is a little
Fast Food Sue meal. This is simply slices of Hormel Naturals ham with cheese sprinkled on it and heated in the microwave for one minute and thirty seconds (1:30). Pair this with some strawberries and this is a great breakfast or small lunch. Adding avocado onto the ham makes it even better. I eat these as a finger food like little tacos.
