Do you have one?

Okay, so Saturday kicked my butt, health wise. I won’t go into the details as to why, but I will say that I seemed to be looking for an excuse to eat-up and I took it. My problem these days is that I don’t have a plan. I’ve been losing some weight, but I don’t have a set daily calorie rule, I don’t have a “free meal” rewards system in place to look forward to or to defer to in case of temptation, so instead, I just crashed! Not the end of the world or anything, but crashes like this can quickly revert back to habits and that’s how I gained back some of my weight since summer. I need a plan. Do you have one? What is it and how do you stick to it?

  1. Here's my plan:

    1. Drink a gallon of distilled water each day.
    2. Move each day--walk, ride bike, aerobics, lift weights, dance, whatever, but every day do something.
    3. Don't eat after 7:00 at night.
    4. Count calories--pay attention to what is going in my mouth instead of mindlessly shoveling it in.
    5. Avoid trigger foods except on rare occasions. Mine are, strangely, pizza, cold cereal, and peanut butter. They all make me feel like eating and eating until I can't breathe. I can't explain it, it's just something I've noticed. When I eat these, it is very hard for me to be rational.
    6. Pray. A lot! I can't do it without God.

    You can do it, Brent.
