I talk so much about my goals and how I envision achieving them, but I don't seem to be getting anywhere. I see food diaries from people in Weight Watchers
magazine and it seems like something someone else should have to do to reach their goals, I should have it a little easier. I'm not that heavy shouldn't I be able to have real pasta and not spaghetti squash masquerading as pasta? I feel like I spend a ton of time thinking about being on a diet and denying myself things and for what? I suppose I could be heavier and would be, without a doubt, if I didn't try as hard as I do. What I am not doing is losing weight though, which is the point of all this bullshit I hate so much.
I keep saying things to myself like "tomorrow I'll have a perfect day" or "good job! Today was a perfect day". What does that mean? And why does it seem like I can string several "perfect" days together and still not get where I want to be? Are the "imperfect" days really screwing things up that badly?
What do I think is a perfect day? Here it is:
- All meals logged and totaling under budget for the day
- Bike ridden for at least 30 minutes
- At least 10,000 steps
That doesn't seem so hard!! Why am I not doing that most days? I do feel like I'm improving and have made some progress lately which is great, but mostly I feel like I'm just spinning my wheels. I think the answer is to keep going with the exercise and adjust my Fitbit
. Either not add my biking minutes to my day or don't count my steps so that my calorie allowance reflects a slightly lower number to help swing things painlessly, almost, in my favor. There! I made a plan to help improve my success, now I just have to implement it.
