    I have been off the wagon the last two days, chips, candy and too much food. I don't know why I do this to myself because I feel so crappy when i do this. No energy, no drive I just want to sit on the couch and shove my face, then feel gross for doing so. I'm determined to get back at it today. I cant spend another day in this slump. 7san9mbbkwci.jpg

    Eat fats and proteins and take your vitamins and minerals. It will do wonders for controlling cravings.

    Back at it today, and boy do i feel good. I know it was only two days, but it's a world of a difference, the kind of difference that makes you want to tell everyone you know to try OMAD :grin: lol. Anyway haha back to normal, went to the gym, got my walk on :sunglasses: I really like running, but I don't think I'm quite ready to get back at it, but I've been walking at faster paces with varying inclines. I love hiking, so I figure it getting me ready for spring :) Made a healthy dinner, and man, does it warm my heart when my 8yo son asked to try my healthier version of dinner. :blush:

    Weird food mood today, I really wanted fast food for some reason, which is odd, because I don't really eat fast food other than occasional pizza or Chinese food. I ended up getting some Wendy's chili (270 calories) :grin:
    I went to the gym today, which completes my weeks goal of going more than twice lol. I was kind of disappointed that I didn't beat my distance on the bike. I had been on a steady increase since Jan from 11.6k to 15.6k in 48minutes. Today was only 14.5k , still good though.
    Have a great weekend everyone!

    I can't stand coconut :) I'll make it though, I have faith.

    A little bit of any fat would probably work.

    So I ate more last night than i wanted, or should I say, had the will power to stop myself from, because I did want it :wink:
    This morning, I was talking to my husband about it and we decided that instead of not super healthy appies for D&D night, I'm going to make a healthy dinner to share with everyone, cause lets me honest my friends could all use to lose a little weight lol Anyway, he suggested we out for breakfast, just after we finished talking about my eating plan, ugh needless to say moments later I was eating pancakes lol, BUT, I made them with my meal replacement and protein powder, so delicious pancakes that was nothing but a shake and a couple eggs :)

    Well my weigh in won't be good tomorrow, but I can't complain since I went down 7lbs last week.
    Hope everyone's having a good weekend, and happy family day tomorrow :)

    I find printing quotes and sticking them around the house quite helpful! I don't know if it would work for you

    Well I'm not super happy, but then again I am not surprised in the least, about the scale this morning. 1z6a2ic0yulp.png
    I know that it will even out by next weigh in, so I'm not going to let this result define my week.
    It's a holiday here today, so the family is home and we're going to go exploring some nature today :)

    I've never tried the coconut oil. I might some day, but every time I get a little hungry, I remember something I've heard before, that most the time you are actually thirsty. So I just start chugging water and that usually always works.

    Water is best cause no calories, but coconut oil will stop my hunger at the expense of only about 50 cals/hr. Also it will not spike insulin so you can still metabolize fat.
