Choosing my attitude

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

Man I have been in a funk and just kind of rolling with it. Today I decided I have to get out of it. I am choosing to be in a better, more positive mood. Someone told me recently to "fake it til you make it" so that is my plan today. So far so good. I'm hoping I can carry the good mood through to tomorrow. Valentines day and my anniversary - and they suck without my husband by my side. Hopefully we will be able to talk but its doubtful... Nothing I can do about it but it tends to make it hard to dig out of the black hole sometimes. Oh well - tomorrow isnt here yet so - On with Today!

    Love it!

I tend to walk around with a smile on my face pretty much most of the time and on those occasions that I am not smiling people always want to know what's wrong... it may be nothing other than I am thinking about something or other.

My favorite though is when I have to fake it... and people ask me how I am... my response on occasion, don't use it all the time is: "see this smile... it's fake!" and I say that with a big smile on my face. Most of the time we end up laughing about it! It works for me!

    Hi RENEAT,
:) Yes, on a badish day, 'Fake It Til You Make It' and 'Just Go Through the Motions' are among my favorite mantras..

3 steps forward 2 steps back

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

So last week was busy with an out of town conference. Buffets are not my friends and I wasn't able to check in here or track my meals. Probably a good thing! (wince) But nothing was stopping me yesterday - except myself. I was definitely Eeyore and not Pooh! Bad mood, depressed and annoyed with the world...maybe more annoyed with me than anyhting else but didn't want to admit it.... I felt like it just wasn't worth it to try when I take 3 steps forward and 2 steps back. Then I told me friend this and she reminded me that at least I am still one step ahead so I am back on track today and moving forward - even if its a step at a time! emoticon

Seeing a change

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

I am seeing a change in myself - maybe not as much as I would like - I still get depressed way to often and too easily but it is happening. I put on my pink jeans today. These tend to be tight in the morning but loosen up a little through the day. Today they started loose and I am having to pull them up! WOOOO HOOOO! The other day my daughter and I realized that we have been gradually decreasing how much food we are eating and not missing it! Thanks Spark People! Baby steps!!

Superbowl Calories

Monday, February 04, 2013

I know I had too many calories yesterday - not even gonna try to track them! But today is a new day and I have a crazy busy couple days ahead as I get ready to head out of town for work. So I am starting today with a healthy breakfast and tons of water... No use crying over my Superbowl indulgence, right? I have enough to cry about as my 49ers lost... LOL

Nice of you to notice...

Thursday, January 31, 2013

Went to take some papers to MIL last night and stopped at the folks. Mom says "have you lost some weight?" WOO HOO!!! "As a matter of a fact, yes" I say with a self satisfied smile. emoticon So I used the fact that it seems to be working when we had to make a fast food dinner choice. Instead of the norm (fried, fried and fried), I chose a small roast beef sandwich, iced tea and had a piece of fruit when I got home. Yea me! Baby steps....

    Great for you. I'm reading Richard Bernstein M.D.'s "The Diabetes Diet" and learning so much. I don't have Diabetes, but he says that all obese people are INSULIN RESISTANT and with time will get Type 2 Diabetes. (He's had Type 1 since age 12 and he is now 78). I don't want Diabetes, so I'm doing different. He tells why 95% of people REGAIN the weight again after they lose it and that is worth reading the book.
