Different Attitude

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

Maybe I am coming at this with a different attitude this time but it seems to be working! I am trying new recipes and incorporating new veggies into my meals. The last 2 nights the veggies have been my favorite parts of the meals! Hoped to start the sleep challenge of on a good foot but sleep last night sucked! Couldn't go to sleep and only slept in fits and starts once I did. Makes for a long day today but so far my eating is on track. No excuses! Pooh is in the lead today!

    It's funny how much our attitude impacts so many things in our lives. Trying new foods is a great strategy. I keep surprising myself when I discover that healthy food can taste good too.

Feeling Good

Monday, January 14, 2013

Today I am feeling good. I lost 2.6 pounds last week, made some adjustments to the Shred plan and work is moving along. Last week I was struggling with my emotions so I am going to try to keep feeling good this week. Monday is off to a good start...

Being Pooh NOT Eeyore!!

Friday, January 11, 2013

So my counselor tells me I need to stop being Eeyore and work on being Pooh..... I like Eeyore tho! But she is right - I don't want to BE Eeyore. I'm not sure how well this will work (says Eeyore) but I promised to try (says Pooh)... I promised to stop saying "If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all" and try to focus on the good things in my life. So here we go!

Today is day 5 of my new Shred "diet" attempt and my re-entry to Spark. So far I find I can't eat all the food the plan calls for but preparing my meals in advance is working for me. I will modify the amount as I go I think but tried to keep to the guidelines this first week. I am fighting depression alot lately but feel like I have come out ahead this last week even after an unsatisfying talk with the hubby this week. I also got hit hard with the flu so exercise consisted of going to the kitchen for more fluids and then making it back to bed. I am not going to let that stop me but have decided to use this week as a pre-Shred start week since I didn't get to include the exercise portion. How's that for a "Pooh" attitude? emoticon

    I like Eeyore much better than Pooh... so much I even bought a book, several years ago, called "Eeyore's Little Instruction Book." Being as glum as he is might not be a good idea, but he's got some good advice mixed in.

Maybe we can work our way up the ladder toward Tigger or Piglet!

  I love Eyeore as well. But I find I can be a Pooh as well. Good luck finding the Pooh attitude. emoticon

Below 200!!!!!!

Thursday, August 28, 2008

I made it below the 200 mark!! Yea!!! I had gained a few back since school started. I seem to have an inordinate amount of stress lately and I coped by not sleeping enough and not eating right. Go figure! I am back on track though and it is starting to show(to me anyway). I need to check my measurements as my clothes fit a little differently and I am hoping it is due to the exercise. emoticon It sure does help to make me keep working on it. Now that it is cooling off I hope to get outside more. It occurs to me that I am known as the kind of person who gets things done - I can do this. emoticon

School starts

Sunday, August 03, 2008

Another year! I am so tired!! Getting ready is twice as hard as doing it! Here I am working the Sunday before to be ready - BUT I am losing weight!!!! The scale is not calibrated so I can't weigh in right but I can feel it in my clothes. I am feeling good about myself and my choices. I plan to roll with that into this new school year. Here we go.........................
