I ate this not that

Friday, March 26, 2010

Yahoo it's Friday.

Yesterday I was craving an old favorite...a McDonald's Fish Meal, soda included. I was picturing myself going in, ordering, and sitting down and enjoying every bite of it. Then I would go and do some extra exercise to compensate for the over-indulgence. I decided to go on the nutrition tracker and program it into my daily food count...I would make it fit I told myself. I'd cut back on something else so that I'd stay within my points. But earlier this week I promised myself I'd eat at least three veggies everyday this week if I ate the meal, I wouldn't be able to eat all the fruits and veggies and milk in without going over. Also, if I broke this promise it might lead to destruction. I had every intention on getting that meal but, SP thoughts, kept creeping into my head. The articles I'd read, all the hard work I'd done this month, the support, and all the success stories of Sparkers kept flashing through my mind.

I made it through the day without even giving a thought to those golden arches when I passed them. Instead I made my own version of fish filet, no tarter, bread, or soda and it only cost me 230 calories. I even got in the three veggies.

I'm not saying I'll never have a MD's fish meal, but for me to have avoided it is something I wouldn't have done before my Sp journey.

    I took my husband to Wendy's yesterday and he had the mandarin chicken salad. I knew from past experience that the dressing and toppings were the killers on that salad and warned him. I was paying so much attention to his, I forgot about my own and was DISGUSTED to see how many calories the BLT salad had in it! NEVER AGAIN! It bombed my whole day. I was so disappointed in myself.

I know what you mean about the food and wanting that trip out. Sometimes, if I know I've been particularly good I will have a small bag of fries and a diet coke. My little treat to myself.

I hope you have a great weekend. Hopefully our weather will warm up soon. We had snow, hail, freezing rain, rain, sleet and sun today. What a STRANGE day!

Keep up all the good work!

Going Walking

Thursday, March 25, 2010

I am on my out to walk ....I think I'll walk the mall today. I always see a lot of interesting people there. Especially the women who walk in their group with the baby carriages. They even line the carriages up and do a whole aerobic routine. It makes me laugh.

Have a Great Thursday. emoticon

    Walk the pounds away. I like to walk. I take the time to just think. Walking is like meditation for me. I hope you enjoyed your walk.

Can't Sleep

Tuesday, March 23, 2010

I woke up this morning at 3:00. For some reason I couldn't sleep. I already don't get enough sleep because I have back problems that keep me tossing and turning all night. Sometimes I wake up and can't go back to sleep, my mind starts thinking about all the things I could, should, want, or don't want to do. So usually I just turn on the TV until I fall back to sleep. Today I'm on SP tracking points. It wouldn't be so bad if I could just take a nap somewhere in the day, but that never happens because If I try to nap my mind starts playing over every thing I should be doing instead of lying down. It's terrible.

    Hang in there I hope you can get some rest tonight. No emotional eating. This happens when our thoughts wonder and we can't sleep. Sip on some hot or cold liquids. Stay strong and many blessings.

Rainy Monday....BOO HOO!

Monday, March 22, 2010

That's O.K. I'll do some of the Spark Exercises. It will be a change in my routine, instead of going outside or to the mall to walk . Change is good and coach Nicole is very energetic.

Good Day to everyone. Stay positive, stay motivated emoticon

    I know what you mean about the weather. It was just above freezing here this morning and drizzling, so I guess what you have now is what I have to come! :o)
I decided too that today would be an indoor day for now. I haven't spent any time on my Wii since my husband came home. :o)
Might grab my husband and walk later today. That's what we did on the weekend. He has his fitness test tomorrow so he wanted to make sure he was up to the run.
Off to the pool this afternoon with my sister.
Hope your weather clear!!! Have a great day! Spring is finally here!!!
