Yes. I am still very much on my weight loss program.
I have been in and out of town this past week and have not spent much time online. My apologies for my abrupt disappearance last week.
Sometimes when working, I have spurts of calls coming in, so I have to get them all in asap until I get caught up… And, nothing else gets done while I am focusing on customer service.
I am on track though. I have stayed primarily on my low carb eating program this week, although I have become more lenient lately with my approach due to time restrictions.
I plan “random” cheat meals in advance. Usually, I will look forward to whatever off-program meals or snacks as a reward for my eating primarily healthy overall.
The operative words here are “that interest me”. 🙂
Having said that, usually I will not use up all of my allotment of allowed “cheats”.
Out of 35-40 weekly feeding opportunities (5-6 snacks or meals a day), I may take advantage of two or three off-program foods a week instead of the four or five I allow for myself.
No binging, no two off-program foods at the same meal, and never a full day off program, I will plan a random 10 percent of my meals as cheats. (see Planned Cheat Meals)
And… I am not one to beat myself up over not being perfect. You shouldn’t either if this applies to you. 🙂
After all, I am eating a whole lot better than most people on the SAD (Standard American Diet).
Anyway, I am attempting to catch up on the back log so I will see y’all later… just wanted to let you know that I am still alive and kicking… 🙂
