Every week when I sit down to write my Weekly Nutrisystem Update, I reflect on the ups, downs and struggles of the past week. I was really optimistic that I’d get through Thanksgiving without a problem. Well, not so much. Read on for more…
I hosted Thanksgiving at my house, so that meant tons of food around. In retrospect, that, plus getting out of my routine really screwed me up. Every day, I eat breakfast, then halfway between breakfast and lunch I might have lowfat string cheese, then lunch, then an afternoon snack, then dinner and dessert. So my body has adjusted to every few hours getting refueled.
On Thanksgiving, I went completely off schedule. We ate about 2:00 in the afternoon, so breakfast was fine, but obviously I would be skipping lunch in lieu of dinner. In the meantime, my sister came with appetizers. So we grazed. And grazed. And grazed. Then had dinner. And although I had small portions, they were small portions of EVERYTHING.
That night, my stomach rebelled at the totality of the day. Oh my, bring out the Pepto! What I realized is that I need to take better care of myself so that this doesn’t happen again at Christmas. Luckily, that’s at my sister’s house, so I can stay on schedule right up until the time we leave to go over. Lesson learned!
This week, even with Thanksgiving, I lost .6 lbs., making my total weight loss to date, 61 lbs. I think getting back to Zumba definitely helped.
