Week 2

Week two had a few hiccups.  My darling husband bought me Krispy Kreme as a surprise.  Lovely thought but a huge calorific no-no.  I know I have no self-control and getting control of my eating is one of my goals.  At the moment if the crap food is there I will eat it and I will eat A LOT of it.  You’ll notice I completely gave into temptation and ate 5 scrum-diddly-umptious donuts over two days.  On Friday night I had dinner at my Mum-in-laws and had a piece of cake after dinner.  That day I had leisurely swum in the pool with the boys (their last week of school holidays) for over 3 hours.  Apparently even just moving around in the pool with occasional laps burns a lot of calories.  I didn’t count the whole 3 hours worth as I felt the number of calories that kept popping up for swimming (leisure) when I searched online was a little higher then I feel I burnt.  Most gave an approximate of 500 calories per hour.  I felt I had definately earned 500 calories so I put that down rather then the full 1500.

On Saturday night we went out to dinner for my mum-in-law’s 50th birthday 🙂  I planned what I was going to select from the menu, decided to forgo a glass of wine with my meal and I factored in a piece of birthday chocolate mud cake.  The donuts I ate that morning threw a spanner in the works but I went to the gym for a huge (but absolutely enjoyable) workout and worked off those donuts and bought myself some room to move for that evening.

Though week 2 wasn’t all I had hoped it would be, I am proud of myself for:

  • Being honest!  I didn’t just ignore the quarter of a donut I snuck in after eating two whole ones.  Part of overcoming my binge eating habits I feel is acknowledging and owning up to everything that goes in my mouth.  Those little bits add up!  When I make mashed potato for dinner and I “taste-test” 4 tablespoons worth over the course of serving up plates…that’s not FREE!  Its horrifying how many things I do that with!  A few lollies snuck here or there can add up to a whole 250g packet over 2 days.  I just ignored these things in the past.
  • My mentality….when I saw those donuts I didn’t dread them because I feel I need to deprive myself and they are BAD…I dreaded them because I knew I was going to have to factor them in and it would mean missing out on calories to bulk up my lunch and dinner (things like adding 1 tablespoon of olive oil to my lean steak and salad…something high in calories but something I know is good for me and makes my meal more enjoyable).
  • I didn’t quit!  This is something I need to work on in my personal development in general….I’m a quitter….a huge wimpy quitter…to the point where for years I don’t TRY anything because I don’t want to discover I’m not perfect two seconds in and quit 2 seconds after that…
