Brush Yourself Off and Try Again

This weekend was an eating free-for-all and I've done some thinking. I think I have been unknowingly sabotoging my success. I do good for a day or two, start to slip, and then allow myself to completely fall on my ass. I go to the store and by Nutella, knowing it's like crack to me. I buy sugary cereal, knowing I'll have more than one bowl. Or I buy full fat creamer knowing that I need alot to actually enjoy the taste of the coffee. So I have decided to set 3 goals for the week. I think I'll set 3 goals each week to keep myself on track. They don't always have to be different goals, either. If I need to work on something longer, I'll continue to keep it as a goal for the next week. So here are my goals for this week:

1. Don't buy cookies, chocolate, brownies, ice cream, and things like that for at least 2-3 weeks. Food is like a drug during the first few weeks to me until my body is used to eating more healthy things, and not junk all the time. So until I can control myself, I'm going to treat myself to sugar free pudding or a 100-calorie pack.
2. Count points more carefully.
3. Exercise at least every other day, if not more often.

I forgot to weigh myself this morning, so tomorrow morning I'll see what the damage is. I won't be discouraged, though. I am prepared for a gain. If I didn't gain, I'll be thrilled.

Wow I like that idea. It's so hard to get back on program. Concentrating on 3 things is a great idea. I'm going to steal it.
