Yay for Wednesday!

Wednesday, February 19, 2014

I have been off track again for a few weeks but am once again ready to turn onto the correct path. Today was a wonderful day. I ate well and managed to cover all the food groups. That in itself is a miracle for me. I feel real good about that. I am relaxing now after a very long day and hope to get some motivation for probably picking my daughter from her work. I really would rather stay in my bedroom and enjoy the solitude, however if she needs a ride, she gets a ride. In 3 weeks I travel to a nice hot destination and my goal is to be thinner. Not sure how much thinner but thin enough that I feel better about myself.

2nd Week!

Tuesday, January 14, 2014

My first week went well and then Friday night, I went and had some beer and snacks. I went back on my good path for the rest of the weekend. This week, it has been going okay, and hopefully it begins to get easier. I went swimming yesterday before work. I felt great! It may not have been to the same degree as before or the same intensity but I felt wonderful just the same.

A Tough Night Last Night

Thursday, January 09, 2014

Last night was a battle of will power. I knew that I ate enough but my mind told me I was starving. I drank a big glass of water which helped. However, I was having a hard time not eating bread or anything else I could find. As a snack before bed, I had a big mug of hot milk, hoping that it would fill me and help me relax for bed. I think it worked.
I had my daughter take a photo of me. I will post it here soon. Photos don't lie and I need to have it as my starting point.... again. Whenever I need evidence that I have regained the weight, I can look at the photo. I want to have a new photo taken each week, fingers crossed I actually go through with it. emoticon

Back to work, day 2

Monday, January 06, 2014

It is back to school(work) for me today. This means I am able to get back into a routine with everything especially eating. I really have to get into eating veggies, lots of veggies at lunch.
We have a snow day here today. Roads are horrific. I had my swim class planned and everything ready but the weather decided to play rough so no swim today. Fingers crossed I get to go Wed. morning.
Why is it that I deliberately sabotage myself? I know what to eat, what to do for exercise but I don't follow what I know I should do.
I guess if this was easy, no one would be overweight. I need to put myself as a priority with this. If I was a friend of mine, I would be there to help them so I need to do that for me. whew! Only 2 days in and so far to go.


I'm Back

Sunday, January 05, 2014

It has been so long since I have been on Spark. I have been in avoidance and denial, a place I have been so many, many times. Last year was a hell of a year, I lost my dad after a long illness, and it was like falling down Alice's rabbit hole. I ate to make myself feel better and I went to the comfort foods, of desserts and breads. I basically ate and ate and felt sorry for myself. I worked, exercised and went on with my life but on the inside, I felt very fragile and whenever a tough situation came up, I felt like I would break. What saved me was some counselling. I slowed down the eating but didn't come back to Spark till now. I am now ready to address my eating issues and with this support I will do my best to get back on track to feeling good inside and out.
