I think my main weakness is the evening. I’ve noticed that the majority of my discretionary eating takes place in the evening; most specifically after dinner. My portion control for breakfast, lunch, and dinner are alright, and my snacks are usually pretty healthy but after I’ve eaten dinner, everything hits the fan. My desserts are too large and my ‘midnight snacking’ has gotten out of hand. I’ve got to work on that from now on.
In other news, I pigged out on New Year’s Eve/Day. I suppose it was fitting, though; the last night of 2008 and of my eating habits. I did pretty well during the day on New Year’s Eve; by 4 PM I had only consumed about 600 calories and was getting ready for the evening festivities. Even dinner was pretty good, but, as usual, post-dinner eating was my undoing. Regardless, I’m done with that now and I am ready to move forward.
I gained back about a pound and a half of the four pounds that I lost in the last week, but I’m attributing it to muscle mass. Am I creating some sort of dilusional euphamism for myself? I hope not. My abs are starting to come back out under the jelly, so I guess that’s a good sign.
I’m ready for the fruits of this labor.
