A Quote To Diet By?
I read a quote the other day that has actually helped me alot... especially during meals.
"Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper"
Simple huh? So breakfast for me carries the majority of my calories and carbs, lunch is quite a bit smaller and less carbs... and dinner is something small and simple with as little carbs as possible. I've tried this for two days now, and I can tell the difference in my eating habits... for one, I am not hungary in between meals!! Second, I am not over eating! As the day goes on my portions get smaller. I am also keeping tack of my water by drinking 2 (16oz glasses) of water before breakfast, 2 before lunch, 2 before dinner and 2 before bed... giving me a grand total of 128 oz... which is definatley keeping me full.. and hydrated!
I am fighting the urge to jump on the scale every morning... I want to see a drop, but I'm also scared to see it not move.. or worse, a gain! .... I still have 2 weeks before my second weigh in of the year... so I am keeping the faith.. and moving on.
I do feel a change in my body, but is it real? or am I just imagining it to make myself feel better? grrrrrrr
Today I have a 3 hour Kempo class, so I will definatley be burning calories today! This afternoon the girls are heading to my moms for the day and hubby and I have a dinner date tonight all by ourselves to celebrate an early valentines! Yeah!
Have a Blessed Weekend... I'll see ya'll on monday morning!
