Day 7 - Victory declared (hopefully)

Monday, September 03, 2012

Today was the seventh day. Tomorrow I do my official weigh in a work. I have not gotten on the scale in a week. I am nervous because of the obsessive complusion to check the scale-monitor my progress. But daily (or more) weigh ins were sabotage for me in the past so I decided to follow the advice of the experts this time. I will only weigh in at work. (It helps that I don't have a reliable scale for 300+ at home.

Yesterday was tough. I went over my maximum calories by 200+. But, I did also was at the low in of the calories for all other days this week. While this is not ideal (either way - low or over), it only is the first week of my new healthy Spark-lit life.

I had planned to get myself prepared to begin with fitness/workout in week 2. Today, I cleaned out the exercise room. I removed the too tiny clothes that have been hanging on the equipment for 2 years. I declare this week a VICTORY regardless of the scale tomorrow (but I really hope the scale moves). emoticon

    That is fantastic - congrats on your victorious first week!! And an extra congrats for declaring a victory regardless of what the scale says - although I'm sure you'll see results. Keep up the great work!!

Day 5 - Support

Saturday, September 01, 2012

Today we had Krispy Kreme for breakfast - my DH suggestion in front of our DD. So off to KK (or diet sabatoge), I ate my doughnuts and drank my milk.

Then I got busy - I cooked a SPARK recipe because I NEEDED to. I was looking for some volume but low calorie and high nutrient value (to balance out the empty breakfast choice). It worked to my advantage. I found a new recipe that I liked (and I made DH and DD join me) .

    While you were not thrilled with the choice of KK, you did well. Sometimes when you have a DH and kid(s) you make those choices. It is what you did later that impresses me. Think about how many times in the past you would have then blown the rest of the day by just throwing it away. Today you not only didn't throw away the rest of the day - eating ONE doughnut with a glass of milk is NOT a disaster either. It may not be a SUPER healthy choice but it is ONE DOUGHNUT not a whole box of them. Even choosing to GO OUT for the doughnut rather than boxes in the house is a GOOD decision.

I would give you an A for how you dealt with your eating today.

Day 1 - Again

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

8/23/12 - Weighed in with the work group. That is the scale that I am going to use. That way my scale is not available for me on a daily obsessive basis.
