Tomorrow is Today

Yes, I am still battling with procrastination vs motivation. As my motivation has ebbed away, it's filled more and more with procrastination and bad food choices. Sometimes the best way to tackle a problem is to look at it face on, acknowledge what the difficult bit is and work on it from there.

So what is my biggest obstacle? Where has all my motivation gone? I think it started after my sister stopped going to Weight Watcher meetings with me. From there it's been a slow and steady progression. Latest news is the team leader at the same Weight Watcher meeting has now moved on to other locations.

So I've toyed with the idea of moving on from Weight Watchers myself. I really only want to do that if I can make sure I have something else to fill the void. I wonder what sort of classes might be available at Bally's on that day? I'm paid at WW till June though so I've got some time to decide. In the meanwhile, perhaps I'll give the new team leader a try.

I also wonder how encouraged I might be to eat healthier if I try and do an online food tracker. Giving friends and family (and strangers) the opportunity to comment on how well I might be doing, tips on what I can do better, and possible suggestions for areas to improve in. I keep telling myself I don't want to wait till tomorrow anymore, I need to start doing things today. So I'm going to start the tracker and list what I've had so far today. I'll try to update as the day goes along.

Wednesday - May 26th
Morning - Banana, 2/3 cup cereal, fruit & yogurt parfait.
Lunch - Corned Beef on flat bread with Swiss - 100 Calorie Chips - one pear.
Snack - Pack of WW Fruities.
Dinner - Cheese sandwich (on flat bread again), 1/2 cup cottage cheese, bowl of cherries, a handful of chips and for dessert a few mini caramel waffles.


  1. Have you tried Greek yogurt? The plain is the best for you b/c of the much lower sugar content, but it doesn't taste good at all, so add some truvia....2 packets. It would be a good way for you to add some protein first thing in the morning. Higher protein boosts your metabolism more.

  2. I've been meaning to try this Greek yogurt. I should put that on my grocery list for this weekend. I still want to pick up a few lean steaks, chicken and WW English Muffins.

    Thanks for the idea!

  3. I like online trackers, too. Journaling is key which I've learned thru Vtrim. But fitday.com is a good tracker... dailyplate.com is, too, in my book! Let me know if I can help in any way! :)

  4. Oh, and I should probably pick up a few of those frozen vegetables in the microwave bags. Love them, easy to use and encourages me to eat more veggies.
