    AMLYST is right...Track it. log it, you acknowledged it..Move on..Don't dwell and don't let it take away from all the good stuff you have done and how much you have accomplished..Keep remembering...its about consistency, not perfection..
You can do it!!!

    You had a bad day . . . We all do. Tomorrow is a new day and a new start. Just forget about it and move on :)

    I also had a bad food day. I just couldn't stay away from pizza and ice cream. We just need to SHAKE IT OFF and be better today.

When it rains, it pours!

Thursday, August 05, 2010

It all started with hotcakes. I ate a good and healthy lunch and had good snacks.

Then I was reminded that I should be bringing something to contribute tomorrow, for the balloon themed staff lunch. Colourful mini muffins all 'tied together' with frosting 'string' on the platter! Balloons! Yep... They look awesome. I ate 3, unfrosted (I HATE store made frosting but I had some because it was left over from a betty crocker cake). At least I made the recipe 'healthy' by using applesauce in place of half the oil and egg whites only!

Then, since I had already had 3 mini muffins and hot cakes, I called it a day off. I know, I know, there are no days off in a healthy life style etc, but I had one.

I had dinner at work (pork ribs, fat removed, a couple of Tspn of mashed potato and some broccoi). I enjoyed it and stopped eating when I got full.

I probably went over my calories by about 500. I haven't tracked yet.

I kinda regret todays eating. I know there is nothing I can do about it now but look how far I've come (kilos coming off, feeling better) and don't do it tomorrow!

    Sometimes it's days like those that make us realize how much we love our new healthy lifestyles and they can serve as motivators to stay on the right path. Don't beat yourself up. Today's a new day. Live, learn and enjoy

McDolands Hot Cakes...

Wednesday, August 04, 2010

were yummy! Were a waste of calories? Were OK just this once (I haven't had McDonalds for months)?

This morning I had to get up at 5am to take the boyfriend to the bus. He is away for the weekend. 5am and me, we don't get on. 6.15 has been hard enough for night owl me, but 5am? Nope, not pretty.

So I was driving home from the bus stop and all I could think about was hotcakes. Fluffy, warm, drenched in syrup. Oh goodness, I needed it now. My will power was obviously still asleep, so I had some. And they were good. But not something I would eat again for breakfast. I think I just needed the sugar or something. And while they filled my early morning sugar craving, I'm already hungry again and I don't know how I'm gonna make it to 11... I'm gonna try and make it, drink lots of water. I want to eat on my normal timetable today.

I have already planned on eating well today. I did plan on walking, but I had 5 hours sleep, so thats not happening. Lets aim for tomorrow.

Hmmm...so the day isn't a total waste, but I wish I had just come home and had a smoothie instead of the hotcakes.... Live and learn!

    Live and learn indeed! I have found that I have to have a good amount of protein with breakfast or else I end up famished within an hour or two, as you did after your hotcakes. Knowing how it will make me feel later helps keep me from making choices like that now.

I lost another pound! And other things

Wednesday, August 04, 2010

Another pound had left the building! I stepped on the scales this morning (I weigh twice a week, Wed and Sun) and thought it said 83.7, so up .4 of a kilo! I was mad, since I had been eating well and exercising. BUT when I opened my sleepy morning eyes it actually said 82.7! Yahooo! It's not falling off at any great speed, but its going and at this rate I will meet my August goal!

I'm off to the movies tonight. I usually don't go to movies (I think they are a rip off, I'd rather buy the DVD and watch it as many times as I like) but this is fundraising for my cousin, so off I go. I am going to have a small popcorn if I feel like it, and I'm going to drink water only.

I found grey hair today. I freaked out. I was at school so couldn't cry and scream and say "why me?" but I felt like it. I'm 21! With grey hair. Whats next, wrinkes? Gimme a chance please body! I have my father to blame, he started going grey at 4 and was 90% grey by his 30th. Damn genetics.

I think thats everything I needed to get out of my system... I had an awesome day at school today. One kid made me laugh soooo hard. It makes me remember WHY I want to be a teacher. And one kid made me sooooo proud when he was telling the main teacher what I taught them. Its a "yay, he got it!" and its a feeling that can't be described!

Have a Sparkie day everyone!

    Don't sweat the gray hair - I have had mine since high-school, although there was much less then than now :). At almost 40, I look young and act young and people comment on my gray all the time. They tell me they love it! Of course right now I am at 50% in the front and 25% in the back, but I have no intentions of hiding it. Instead I intend to look, act and feel young in my body by staying healthy.

You are on the right track by keeping you in focus and in balance (even hotcakes are ok every once in a great while)! Way to go on the lost pound and even more so on the love of what you do as a teacher - cheers to you!

Hello Sparkworld!

I've just finished day 2 of my placement. All teachers should get paid $1,000,000 a year, coz we work hard! I'm shattered and its only day 2!

I got up early this morning for a walk, just under 3km. Would have been longer but I was running out of time, so I did what I could. My iPod died about 300 metres from my house. Oh, how tempting it was to just turn around. But on I walked, listening to the sounds of the world. Kinda nice, but not something I'd do by choice.

Tonight I left some of my dinner on my plate. My mother would have been horrified! But I was happy that I am learning that I don't have to eat food just because it is there. I was full, so I stopped eating. I may use the leftovers (chicken) in a salad or something tomorrow.

Even though I am full I still want something sweet. 21 years of always having dessert is a hard habit to kick! I got some POM white iced tea on sale at the supermarket, so I'm sipping on that to see if it kicks my sweet tooth. Only 80cal per serving, 2 servings per bottle. So even if I finish the bottle I'll still be within range.

This post is very mismash, a lot like me!

Until tomorrow, Sparkworld!

    Well good for you! Both for continuing your walk, and recognizing when you are full, that it's okay to leave food..That was a big step for me too..Think all Mom's went to the same "sayings school"..I used to get the same line :-)
Hope you enjoy your placement and don't get too worn out..I sometime found if I put a handful of craisins and or raisins in with some almonds,,it would satisfy my sweet tooth...

    I'm horrified that you left food on your plate. What about the hungry children in China? (Not trying to be a smartie or politically incorrect. My mom always said that to get us to finish our meals.)
