Who Am I Kidding? 12/9/10

Thursday, December 09, 2010

Okay, this morning is reality check time. I have stayed at the same weight for the last 6 months. I have entered foods in the nutrition tracker every now and then. I have started this blog. I have read a few of the inspirational messages. The one this morning, about Spark being too expensive because of having to buy new clothing, well, that was really good. It got me thinking though, about my own commitment to this program. All a person can do is day by day. One step at a time. So I will try again today to set goals, but I will be more specific in how to actually accomplish them.

1. Exercise ball - 15 minutes - set alarm to check up on myself - no

2. Food tracker - all day - enter dinner and be honest before I go to bed---yes

3. Measure foods - getting easier to do, except when eating out, too easy to cheat, to see one cup as a half cup-- be aware of this---yes

4. Set out bowls of cut up apples to snack on. yes--added strawberries

5. Try to get one of my household goals accomplished, just one. Clear out my computer room.-- yes, half done

    My scale seems to be stuck just above my goal. I suspect I am sabotaging myself but I am not sure how. I don't think I eat in my sleep!

    How funny!! Well I guess we are all in the same boat. Maybe we can motivate each other. I was thinking it would be good to find one or two people and share food journals. Maybe if I knew someone else was reading it, I would be better about it.

    OMG! It is like you are reading my mind. I have set and accomlished several fitness goals, but the scale has not budged in months. Also, this morning I just decided to make it a priority (for the umpteenth time) to clean out the second bedroom.

I missed Tuesday's blog because I had to get up at 5am to leave the house at 6am to get to my daughters house by 7:30am so she could go to work, and I could take care of her feverish little boy. He is 10 months old now and I had to hold him the entire morning. Being with him, knowing how short the time is that he will be a baby, loving the scent of his baby hair, laughing with him at his delight in playing peek-a-boo is just utter total joy.

I plan to enter my goals for today, very specifically just like the blog named fitness freak. I liked the way he was very specific. He looked already thin enough, but he must want to maintain. And maintaining is a lifelong commitment, isn't it? Okay, here goes. I will be realistic.
2. Record at least breakfast and lunch. ???
3. Do exercise ball for five minutes in the morning while my hair is drying. yes
4. Do yoga with my special gentle voice tape in the evening before going to sleep. no
5. Keep sight of purpose: back pain, knee pain will be relieved by weight loss. no, forgot

Added goals
1. Learn one new spark website trick, ie easiest way to get to my blog?
2. Clear off downstairs table so can start Christmas preparations. no
3. Get all my papers in order. no, try again tomorrow

Flu shot yesterday; felt pretty miserable afterwards. Made brownies for consolation, but did record all the particulars, the sodium, calories, etc.
