Instantly.. I knew this would happen!
The day after I weigh I say to myself..OK I don't have to weigh for another 6 days. So I can Breathhhh...
So I give myself a break for a day. Then I get really strict the 2 days before I weigh.
I do this EVERY week. Sometime mindlessly and sometimes unknowingly.
So..I decide that I am going to go an entire MONTH without weighing. So how long do you think I would give myself a breather???? Well it is a good thing that I caught it right off the bat!
Yesterday I had a piece of whole grain toast with 1 Tbs of Peanut Butter and 1 Tbs of Simply Fruit Jam. That is fine I have that at least once a day with 8 ounces of light vanilla soy milk. Then last night before I went to bed I got hungry and I had it again. Afterwards I started thinking to myself..I have never done this before so why now??? Well sheeeshh I don't have to weigh for 30 more days. That gives me plenty of time to burn it off right?? If I did this for say...the next 2-3 days that is one week out the window!!!
So I am glad that I caught it right away!
If I take one day a week and say oh I'll just have this one extra piece of toast that is no different then me having a 300 calorie slice of pie!! Peanut Butter is NOT bad for you! But it is how much you have. I count calories and not fat. But it IS in the back of my mind.I do know that having 2 slices whole grain is fine but not both with peanut butter.
So by catching it right away I don't have to worry that the scale will tell me something in a month that I don't want it to.
The trick this month will be to stick to my health eating. To try and remember that even though I am not weighing for another month. I need to eat and workout as if I am.
The point of doing this is NOT to eat what I want for 3 weeks and then spend a week trying to make up for it. If that were the case I would just go back to weighing weekly!
But I caught what happened last night and now I know what to look for!
