Remember last week when I said I was my highest weight? Um... well... that wasn't technically my highest weight. I actually managed to gain a little more. That might have been partly due to a little sabotage (hello sheet cake), partly due to an unexpected date night (hey these come along VERY rarely), but primarily due to my complete lack of planning.
I'd like to blame it on all the other stuff on my plate these day but the reality is you can't lose weight without a plan. When I was losing I had a dieting philosophy that allowed me to eat anything I wanted as long as I kept under my calorie limit. That didn't mean that I just winged it I always had set treats and consistent calorie limits. And I guess I just forgot that. I was ready to lose but then when I was hungry or having a craving I didn't have anything ready and waiting (think cookie dough balls).
So this week I'm getting serious. I'm stocking up on my kashi go lean bars, my sandwich makings, and a dessert choice and moving forward.
