This couldn't be more true this week! Not just going to the store hungry BUT also since I was sick, I didn't meal plan or do my "big shop" for the week so we've been eating on the fly. Which is never a good thing.
The key to good eating habits and losing weight, I think, is planning. When I don't plan, I don't have control. Deciding mid-day what we are going to eat that night does not work for me. At least 3 days in the last 5, I have gone to the store to get what we needed for dinner that night. Which means I had to take in account what I had for breakfast and lunch so I didn't go over my points. What a pain!!!
Now that I am feeling much better and am almost back to my 'old' self, I can come up with my menu and grocery list for all of next week and feel back in control! YAY! There are still a lot of foods I am avoiding because I do not want to have a set-back. But I am working around that. Trying to find my limits. I still have at least 4 days of no exercise, which IS killing me. The minute I am able, I am back to my work out routine. And I can't wait!
