Teeny Tiny Goals - Day 4

Friday, October 24, 2014

My goal was no second helpings and I just about, almost, but not quite, made it. I was cleaning out the refrigerator and I found a container with 2 pumpkin tarts that my daughter had baked for dessert last Sunday. Sunday was our 41st wedding anniversary and 3 of my daughters had cooked dinner for us. Anyway, I ate both of them after supper tonight. But I made it all day until then, and I only drank water (no sweet tea) and only ate my pre-planned snacks. So I'm going to count this day a success.

The weekends are always challenging. Usually I head into Saturday expecting to overeat all weekend and then try to make up for it on Monday. This weekend my goal is to stick with my previous 3 goals and hold on to that success. I don't want to think, "Okay, I met that goal today. I"m glad that's over," and then go right back to my old ways. I want to take this slowly enough that the goals become a way of life for me. So no new teeny tiny goals for the next couple of days.

Teeny Tiny Goals - Day 3

Thursday, October 23, 2014

Okay, I did well all day until my husband asked me to make popcorn tonight. I did eat popcorn with him, but I'm okay with that. My ultimate goal is to develop healthy habits that I can live with in real life. Real life means popcorn with my husband some evenings. For the rest of the day, I did well in sticking to my prepared snacks. I even had 2 snacks left over.

Tomorrow's teeny tiny goal is: no second helpings.

    Having popcorn doesn't mean that you're eating mindlessly, unless you did eat mindlessly. I really like your teeny tiny goals!

Teeny Tiny Goals-Day 2

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

Today was a success - just coffee and water to drink. No cheating at all with this goal. I'm a little bit proud of myself.

Tomorrow's goal isn't so teeny tiny for me. One of my downfalls is mindless snacking, just eating whatever lies in my field of vision. Tomorrow morning I'm going to make snack bags and that is what I'll grab when I want to snack on something. I don't feel that I'll be successful if I try to give up between meal snacking entirely right now, but I do believe I'll be successful in controlling it by being more prepared and having things ready. So that is tomorrow's teeny tiny goal.

Teeny Tiny Goals-Day 1

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

Today my teen tiny goal was to avoid going through McDonald's drive-through for a $1 sweet tea. I did succeed in that goal, but my husband brought one home from work and I did take just one sip. I'm still counting that as a success, though.

Tomorrow's teeny tiny goal is to drink only water. I get to have morning coffee - black - but after that, only water.

    teeeny goals are great. I grew up on sweet tea and believe it or not, I never ever drink it now, in fact, I prefer unsweetened! lol

new beginning

Saturday, August 30, 2014

Last year at this time I was doing so well. I was losing weight, exercising, and feeling healthy. This year I've gained all the weight back and some extra, regular exercise is a memory, and I feel blah. But I'm not parking in this spot. I worked in the garden and exercised with a short sparkpeople video today. I tracked my food. Hey, I'm even making a blog post! I feel like I'm pointed in the right direction again. My big issue is snacking, mindless eating. It's an addiction and I need to treat it that way. I've been way too understanding with myself. It's time to be tough and hold myself accountable. So here I am, starting over once again.

    Sorry I missed your blog when you posted! Your year sounds a bit like mine. I'm working at getting back on track and staying there, too. Just have to keep working at it.
