I binged over the weekend. Of course I did.
I don’t think I did as much damage as the weekend before… I did some serious damage control yesterday (Monday) and that helped too. I stayed under my calories, did a longer lunchtime walk, AND jumped on the treadmill before bed.
I’m surprised at how much I am enjoying meal replacements. I do get quite hungry throughout the day, and I worry that this will trigger a binge, but knowing that I can have a nice evening dinner, AND eat the whole portion, gets me through. I would NEVER have pasta or rice in my diet when losing weight in the past – but being VLC (very low calorie) during the day allows me to do just that 🙂 Tonight I am making pasta bake for everyone, and hell yes, I am going to have a decent serve of it without any guilt!
This week I have joined a fitbit challenge with my friends which is really helping to keep me motivated – and slightly competitive. Its nice to feel this positive at the start of the week, rather than freaking out about the weekend binge.
If anyone has any meal replacement shakes that they love, please feel free to let me know – I need some new flavours!
