My pal?

I have been logging my food now for 28 days in MyFitnessPal.

The reports of this system show what my down falls are in my eating habits. It shows that I consume 20% of my calories at breakfast, 31% at lunch and 37% at dinner. The remaining 12% is snacks. It also shows that I do my best at staying on track Monday through Wednesday and my worst day appears to be Sunday but the whole weekend is a disaster in general.

What does this all mean? It means when I have having fun I like to eat and eat badly. Of course sometimes this is drinks, but mostly it is bad choices like ice cream, deserts, and snacking. Don’t get me started on those chips and salsa. So basically my weight lost is stalled by the weekends. On the plus side I am not gaining weight, but I am not achieving my goal either.

I think this is a physiological problem as much as anything. I am not eating because I am hungry. I am eating because it makes me feel good. But whatever happiness I am getting from these eating extravaganzas it’s depressing me on the Monday morning scale.

This weekend I tried to be good. I had a normal breakfast like I do during the week. No French toast, pancakes, nothing sweet except maybe a little marmalade on my toast. But then things went a rye in the afternoon. It was warm. Dairy Queen was calling my name. That 700 calorie blizzard was not so satisfying. Had I stopped with that and called it lunch I would have been fine.

This is not the actual sandwich but it does look yummy.

But no, next stop is the deli and we are splitting a corn beef sandwich. I only had half right? But this is not a homemade sandwich. This is a gigantic Peppermill sports deli sandwich. At least another 700 calories. So now what? Skip dinner?

No way Jose. We went to Panda Express…. Needless to say I went way over on my calories for the day.

So I know what the problem is now I just need to find a solution.
