Three little words

Sunday, July 25, 2010

Because thinking is a major part of how we see things, how we act and react to life, I've decided to change my way of thinking: I'm taking three little words and substituting them for my "minds sake".

The first word is "good", as in good choices............changing it to "healthy".
The second word is "bad", as in bad choices.......changing to "unhealthy".
And the third word is "diet"......changing to "lifestyle".

I will be able to look at a chocolate chip cookie and say: It could be a healthy choice if I have only one (and if it works with my calories for the day), or it could be an unhealthy choice, because I ate half a package..............In making healthy choices I can have "my cookie and eat it too"

    I am so much in favor of avoiding the words good and bad when it comes to our quest to live a healthy life! Great way to put it all!

What a night

Friday, July 23, 2010

I'll start by saying I am frightened of storms. Loud thunder and bright lightening
make me a little "crazy". That being said, yesterday afternoon going into last night and wee hours of the morning we had STORMS. More coming today and tonight and tomorrow. I did well with my eating yesterday, although I was under my calorie count...........just couldn't eat. Now today I'm going have to muster up some strength to make good choices...........very tired this AM and when I'm tired I just do than think...........will work on thinking before doing (eating). I will make something positive of this some how.................I hope.

    Eating mindfully is a very good plan for today.

I tend to under eat as well and notice that I definitely have more energy on those days that I am eating with in my calorie range.

Of course the stress of the storms passing through takes it share of you energy as well. But the storms will pass, you will learn more about yourself today and you will be stronger as a result.

    Good Morning...I started to do a lot more exercising. Jump rope and use a kettle bell. I don't seem to be as tired as before. maybe it's because I'm getting my heart rate up and my heart is getting stronger...Just a thought...

    Know how you feel. I usually come in under calories count every day and when usually feel tired. With the heat I have no desire to eat.

Just take it one day at a time

Pep talk

Sunday, July 18, 2010

Gave myself my first (of many to come) pep talk. Read this article on daily helps you see a pattern of fluctuation in your takes away the stress and possible disappointment on "weigh in" day....well, this AM was weigh in (yesterday down a pound), today up a pound. Boy did my head spin. But than, I remembered the pep talk theory. What have your accomplished? It's only a number, a mere fraction of what you are trying to do in the long run etc....
Than I told my self I was the one who 1) I was not going to let the scale rule me.
2) I said I would "daily" weigh for 2 weeks to see if there was some truth to a pattern. Sooooo get over it. Today WILL be a good healthy, happy day.

  Of course we all have to figure out what is best for us as individuals. For me (although I've tried it other ways MANY times ), what works best is daily weighing. My memory is all too short so I find it the best way for me. I weigh BBB - bare before breakfast. Then I analyze what I did right and what I need to work on more. The trick, for me, is realizing that fluctuations occur, and I must keep on, keeping on my plan.

    I think I read the same article about daily weighing. The scale is only one piece of the puzzle. Not letting the scale derail your progress is a good lesson to learn.

Thank you for sharing.

Ending the day

Sunday, June 13, 2010

Just about to turn off the computer. Wanted to let everyone know today was just an OK type day. Under ate my calorie count, however, over ate my fat count. Trying not to go over my fat count, but having a little bit of a problem.
Got some more gardening done, transplanted a few plants. Cleaned out a couple flower beds.
Never ending weeds and whirly birds. ( You know those seed pods that float off the trees by the hundreds) Another week they should be all off the trees.
Hope everyone had and good day and a peaceful night.

  Hey AuntB - I have the same problem with calories and fat - Guess I now know why I have cholesterol problems! lol It does seem to get a little easier the more I track my food. I guess I get more thoughtful about the little things, the slice of cheese on a sandwich or the mayo, for me it is the little things that end up biting me.

We've had really hot, humid weather here, so everything in the garden is thriving, including the weeds. This week I have to get out just as the sun is going down and kick some serious weed rear end!

Our day lilies are getting ready to bloom. I always enjoy the masses of flowers. Finally figured out how to keep the deer from eating them, but I keep my fingers crossed, non the less.
It would be just my luck to have a deer develop a taste for (ugh) wolf urine, or whatever it is they put in Hinder. So far it is working though.
