Marking a NWS day for 2nd March - although it was more an S 'event' as the daytime was vanilla NoS, evening involved a celebration and dessert.

One S event on an S day is what they are meant to be eventually anyway. (bk.p. 105) Sounds like you used it perfectly.

That is my goal: only one S event on each S day. Writing this for a bump Smile

I'm pretty good at keeping the NWS days as a single S, working on it for regular S days! This month I'm working at not perma snacking on regular S days, and keeping my S's wherever possible to meal times.

It took me two years to finally be willing to do that. I have other issues that affect that and it's sometimes still a challenge so I instituted a further mod recently. I was hooooooked!

I’d like to jump in even if month already started. My ultimate goal is to do Vanilla No S because for me it gets too easy to get derailed when I start making exceptions. However I don’t feel ready to do that at the moment so would like to tackle a couple of things that could help me get started on the right track. A big one is “no more solitary eating”. Example no buying chocolate on way home from work and eating it in the car with no witnesses Embarassed
Another one is no snacks after supper.
I hope I can stick to it. I tend to get discouraged when I just get reds and then I stop tracking. But I’ll keep trying ...

No solitary eating

19 20 21 22 23 24 25
26 27 28 29 30 31


No snacks after supper

19 20 21 22 23 24 25
26 27 28 29 30 31


12/13: No excuse for snacks after supper. I wasn’t hungry. Just exhausted and frustrated so a lot of emotional eating happening.[color=green][/colori]
14: Really not doing good overall with eating and exercising. Feel very discouraged. Only reason I didn’t get a red for after supper snack is because I fell asleep on the couch and went straight to bed when I woke up.
16: Finally 2 greens! Very Happy

Isn't it fun to find out you can celebrate with food during the three meals?

15 NWS = Trip with DH to celebrate our 34th wedding anniversary. We're hiding out at a friend's house in a remote location, so shouldn't be too bad.

Yippee!!! I previously set Friday 16 as NWS day for getaway with DH. But I was able to resist the snacks & make it a bona fide N day. We even went out for dinner, and I thoroughly enjoyed 1/3 of what was served, saving the rest for other days.

I enjoyed an ok S Day on Saturday, Sunday was a little over the top but not too bad all things considered.

Dang it I lost my entire calendar trying to cut and paste it so it would get bumped and someone who might need the reminder would get an email. ! With only three days to go in March! I lost the exercise part on Spark. Too many moving parts!

Phew well March was a bust... husband was horribly ill (six hospital visits in eight days) and the stress and weird routine led to some very not good eating. Some days I just ate two meals, some days I ate a whole cake Embarassed Rolling Eyes I was also away for part of March with family and friends so had mostly a mixture of S days and failure days.

Onwards to April!
