On my way to heathy eating

Friday, August 09, 2013

I've been on this journey for a little while now, and if I were to rate my eating habits now to when I started I have made great strides. Before I couldn't even tell you how many calories I was over eating (1000-2000). Now I'm getting the hang of knowing which foods I can eat without depriving myself of the tastes I like. For the first time in a long time I feel in control. I do have the power to live healthy. The choices are all mine. The excuses just don't carry the punch anymore. Doesn't mean I won't try to use some along the way. Right now I give my eating plan a rating of 6. Still have some improving to do, but I'm well on my way.

    What a great way to see the changes beyond the scale! This is a very good thought to see the results of commitment and changes.
Thank you for sharing. emoticon

My ultimate goal date

Thursday, August 08, 2013

I have extended my goal time to meet my goal of 145 lbs. til January. I have come to the conclusion that I need a longer learning curve to figure out what will work for my life style and for my body. I have developed many bad habits that I am trying to work through. And some of them I'm not too excited about dealing with. But working on them I will.

  It's better to push the date back than try and cram everything in at once. Way to be realistic about your goals!

The momentum

Sunday, August 04, 2013

This next week I hope to keep my exercise momentum going. I am starting to feel really good physically when I exercise. All it takes me now is only 30 minutes a day and I feel great the rest of the day. I have all these tools now to help me record my progress. Wonderful motivator.
Sleep is another thing I need to work on. I have a hard time making myself go to bed at night. Some nights I don't get home from work until 10:00. I would like to work on a night time ritual that will wind me down to sleep instead of watching tv. There's really nothing all that good on anyway. So this week is about good sleep and consistent exercise.


Food on the brain

Wednesday, July 31, 2013

The more I work on eating right the more I think about eating poorly. Even when I meet my calorie goal for the day I want to have that little extra treat that take me over the top. Once in awhile that is ok, but this is turning into an everyday occurence. I hope by recognizing this I can combat it. It is alright for me to break out of the norm.

    When we were kids and the parents said don't we did, but now we are older and we are trying to live right and we say don't but part of us says yes we need this, but take a five minute breather and drink some water or go read a book or see your favorite show, just occupy your mind with something else emoticon emoticon

Clothes donation

Monday, July 29, 2013

I have already started donating clothes that no longer fit me to goodwill. While I'm there I find other clothes that fit me at my new size. I always find something cute that has hardly been worn if not brand new. One of my rewards when I do reach my goals is to buy a new wardrobe, second hand stores are a good transitional place for me especially when I'm on a budget.
