eDiets Week 2, Day 3 - It's Not Delivery, It's My Downfall...Or Is It?

My workout regiment has continued and I am pleased with the good decisions I have been making.  Last night I was left to create my own dinner instead of eating just a slightly larger portion of what my girlfriend (also on ediets) was eating.  I had calculated my calories during the day to be about 600, so I thought maybe I could have some DiGiorno Pizza if I monitored my portions.  I did well and I am pretty sure I stayed under the 15-1600 calorie limit for the day and still had a good meal.  It was about 1 or 2 small slices less than I wanted to have, but more calories and more fat than I have been having in my other dinners.  One bad thing about my pizza dinner was that I ate it around 8 or 8:30pm.  Today, I weighed in at 178.75 before my workout and 178.25 afterwards.  Considering that my post workout weight prior to my pizza dinner was 178 even, I gained a quarter to a half a pound back temporarily.  Tonight I will be better so that I can finish the week strong and hit my 178 goal for this week.  I will also kick it up on my workout tomorrow and this weekend so I can get a little ahead before I start traveling for work and being put in front of the temptation of dinners at nice restaurants paid for by my employer.  Grilled chicken salad and light dressing or controlling my portion sizes will be key to when I travel.  On the bright side, I am starting to feel stronger, look better, and I still haven't had any soda, coffee, or tea in 2 1/2 months.  The key is understanding myself and what motivates me.  I have no doubt that I can do this, it is just a matter of whether I want to do it or not.  I want to do this.  It is a goal that I have set, written down, taking action, and monitored.  Getting lazy is not an excuse to fail at this now.
