Monday morning's workout:
35 min Treadmill Walk (3.0 - 3.3 mph for 26 minutes)
Hip Abductors (10 reps 2 sets)
Bridges (15 reps with 5 sec hold)
The past two weekends have each included family gatherings surrounded by my all time nemesis - chips and dip. Either one by itself is ignorable. But combined? They are irresistible. Following the conquering of the queso calling on Friday I was hopeful about this weekend. I could avoid the allure of chips and dip. Even if they were in the same room at the same time. Really I can do it.
I fell off the chips and dips bandwagon again. *sigh* However, I did attempt to track all the chips and dip consumed. It doesn't appear that I've gone negative on points for the week, but I need to workout a way to deal with this weakness.
First problem - portion control. One complete chip leveraged to scoop up one teaspoon of any style dip is not a deal breaker. But the chips must be counted and the full quantity of dip must be understood. The drive-by dipping can really add up. Especially when I'm thinking "Oh, it's just one..." I must retrain myself to get a plate, place a specific number of chips onto said plate and scoop up a predetermined amount of time. And once that plate is empty - STOP DIPPING!
Second problem - social hour. I think I can train myself to control my portions. However, it is the hovering around the limitless dip buffet while chatting that seems to cause the bigger problem. While standing there, 1 chip & dip combo can turn into 20 or 30 or more! At some point, even the best laid plans can be overwhelmed. At Cal Tort, there was a short window of opportunity to obtain the illicit substance. Once averted, I was safe. For future parties, I must get my plate of chips and dip to be savored and high tail it to the other side of the room. During this maneuver I test my outstanding social skills by luring those I'm conversing with away from evil as well.
So I have a plan for the future. It however doesn't fix the tummy ache I have today from over indulging. Oh, how I look forward to the days when I'll be better at all this.
