Vicious cycle

Friday, April 26, 2013

Have you ever been at that cycle where certain foods just follow each other.

Yesterday, and the day before where just that. I had lunch that thought
"Surely one packet of crisps won't hurt"
So I went to the kitchen and had that one packet of crisps. But is one ever enough?
Never, so the second one followed straight after.
What happens after two packets of crisps? Well, it's very salty.
Do you go and drink a glass of water? No. It is fatty as well.
What is the best cure? CHOCOLATE

There you go. Before you know it you are in a vicious cycle

    This is me all over! Crisps are my BIGGEST downfall! I can't even trust myself to have just one, because one turns into 6 (yep, I have actually eaten 6 packets of crisps in the space of about an hour! Yuck!) and yes, that saltiness needs to be countered by something sweet, so in goes some chocolate or some kind of jammy pastry. Yuck again! I've climbed off that rollercoaster now!

At least we know what our triggers are. I guess the answer is to just not pop a packet of those crispy bad boys and then we'll be just fine!

My Diet Saboteur

Thursday, March 21, 2013

Who is it?

I decide in the evening to be good the next day. Try to plan my day. Get very excited about it.

Than the next morning comes. The trouble starts with breakfast. Nothing is right. Either the food is not good for me or I don't like it. So whatever I do I feel already out of bounce.

Than comes 10 am. What should you do at this time? Have a snack. Do I do that? No. I have my lunch. Literally. Than I skip lunch because I have already overeaten. And so the dilemma goes on. It effects my daily doings as I don't do my daily chores. I am too upset, fed up and what ever else you can think of to do anything useful.

That is me.

    Try taking it one small step at a time. It is good to plan out your day. If you ate your lunch at 10, try to eat your snack at lunch time. Don't get upset with yourself. Everyone makes a bad choice now and then. For example:I didn't feel hungry at breakfast yesterday so I didn't eat. Same thing at lunchtime. So by the time dinner came I was so hungry that I overate and was sick last night. It made me realize that
I should have had a little something for breakfast and lunch even though I wasn't feeling like I was hungry. So today, I will do it differently.
I hope that you have a great week. God bless you.

    It's good to plan your day, but it's more important to work your plan; otherwise, all you planned is in vain. God Bless YOU! Vic.

Not my best day

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

I was suppose to fast today but had a bad start.
It's always said that breakfast is important. If you start with the wrong food it throws all you intentions.

I will have a non fast day torrow to get back to normal and set my intentions for Friday.


Was upset but didn't binge

Saturday, March 09, 2013

How did that happen. I was just reading about the three P's and realized that for today I broke the cycle: Get upset - go and binge.

I had a very upsetting phone call this morning. After I put the phone down I was cross with the person on the other side for being unreasonable, upset about myself for not handling the conversation better and for making some mistakes in the past which didn't help in this situation.

I started crying but I didn't think of going to the kitchen. My first thought was actually to read to keep me distracted but I felt too worked out to do that so I sat down in a meditative way, shut my eyes and let my thoughts go their way: why I was upset, etc. However, what calmed me down was accepting my own mistakes in the conversation and past. Accepting that that person wasn't worth wasting my time. Just accepting.

I calmed down and decided that a little yoga, which I had planned this morning in the first place, would be a good thing to distract me and get me back to zero.

I sent my husband a message about the conversation and he sent one word back: "understand"

What else do you want.


Day 2

Wednesday, March 06, 2013

I was week this morning fall for the toast. What was my excuse. Husband worked all night so would be at home today. I don't feel ready yet to explain new food plan. Have to find the strength to have a fast day tomorrow. emoticon

  Hi, thanks for your comment. I was worried about this type of reaction. But the reason I was worried to tell him is because I always start a new diet and he just wants me to stick with one long enough to see the benefits, you see. I know it sounded a little funny. However, you'll like to know that I talked to him and he actually was quite good about it. I think he was just happy that I was cutting down own calories. He is just worried about my health. emoticon

    Do you have to explain a new food plan to him? Can you just start cooking healthier? There are some awesome healthy recipes out there that taste awesome!

Don't let your hubby be a hindrance to you. YOU do what YOU need to do to get healthy!

    The basic truth is that it is all about calories in and calories burned. The average person burns around 2000 calories a day just existing so you would actually need to eat 5500 calories approx, to gain a pound. Food allergies and excess sodium can hold water weight.
Follow the tracker guidelines for consuming calories per day and burn the prescribed amount per week and you should see a weight loss of up to 2 pounds per week.
That is what I have done since October. Never deprived of anything, just made good choices, read labels, and started a walking program.
