Amping it up1

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

One of my new year's resolutions was to amp up my workout and try and lose the 5lbs. I had gained last year.
I know from previous weight loss experiences that I need to remain patient. Consistency is the key. I've amped up the workout since the beginning of the year and have been consistent. So I'm pretty proud of myself in that regard. But I haven't seen any progress on the scale. That's a little frustrating.
I know I need to be more consistent with eating the right things. I think I eat pretty healthy. Lots of fruits and veggies. But I must admit, I have no will power when it comes to candy. I have been allowing myself something sweet, so that I don't feel deprived. I find I'm trying to reduce my caloric intake of the good foods to budget for the sweet stuff. Not a good practice, I know. I really need to work on trying to reduce the sweets. My new goal is reduce the sweets. Hopefully, the scale will move soon.


Worst month

Wednesday, November 04, 2009

I'm having the worst month ever. I've gained 8 lbs. and it's all from over-eating. I'm still working out as much as usual, but I'm experience some emotional eating issues and feel like I can't stop. October, November & December are bad months for me. I lost my 22 year old son to cancer in October, 2006, I was involved in a fatal car accident and lost my good friend in November, 1978 and lost my mom in December, 1996. These months are typically difficult for me and usually I make it through by keeping myself busy. But this year seems more difficult and I'm burying myself in food. Need to get a grip.....of something other than food!!! emoticon


Eating Right is Difficult for me

Tuesday, January 13, 2009

I feel like I do everything else right....but when it comes to eating, I can't seem to be consistent. I do really well on some days. I eat plenty of fresh veggies and fruits. Sometimes I can't get enough of them. Then on other days I crave sweets and unfortunately, I grab the wrong things. I can't seem to figure out why I don't grab the sweet grapes or even Kashi that are sitting next to the bad food choices, but I end up grabbing the cookie or bakery. (I don't have these things in the house by choice. My hubby and son like those treats)

    We can all use more mindfulness in food choices. I hear you and it sounds like you are working hard at it. Your awareness should help.
