I decided I needed to make up some rules for myself in order to fit back into more than two pairs of pre-pregnancy pants that aren't stretchy.
1. No soda.
2. Treats on weekends only. And Family Night.*
3. Walk 3-4 days per week.
4. Eat healthier meals.
5. Don't overeat. No seconds.
6. No candy. (Exception, Halloween).**
After I made this list I realized this is a bad time of year for cutting back on stuff. My parents are visiting, followed by Halloween, then Thanksgiving, then Christmas. These holidays are not solely about food, but, they sort of are. Especially for me.
*Don't laugh at my rules. I know my weaknesses and I know I can't completely cut treats out of my diet.
**I also know I'm going to eat some Halloween candy. Probably a lot of it. BUT, I won't buy my favorite candies to hand out and that will insure I don't just eat bags and bags of these.
