Every time I feel a food binge coming on I should go for a walk or walk in place to see how many steps I can take. If not, I'll sit down and eat and eat and eat. . The fitbit is really helping my motivation. Even if it isn't full workouts, I'm taking more and more steps everyday! Everything takes time and this is a great STEPPING stone for motivation to just get moving. . Full pun intended! =D

    Sometimes all we need is that little extra reminder to make a good choice. Good job making the good choices!!

what healthy habit is the hardest to stick with?

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

The hardest healthy habit for me to stick with is..
Drum roll... ...

Eating healthy. What I eat and limiting how much I eat are soo hard for me to do well at. I need to change these two bad traits before my health reflects my poor eating decisions. I feel like I'm constantly getting off track. I do keep jumping back in it though instead of giving up after one or two bad days. Usually when I do eat healthy, I'll stick with it for a few days then I'll eat my limited food and quantity.. then someone will make or bring home junk and I'll be starving. I feel like I'm starvibg no matter how much healthy foods I eat until I eat what they have because it's my favorite or will feed my sugar addiction. I'm not giving up, but the eating portion was so much easier when I lived alone!

    Do not LIMIT what you eat! I think that's your problem, it's the mindset you are in. It is not about limiting but a lifestyle change. If you view it as a limit, then yes, of course it's going to be hard to stick to your new routine. Focus on the produce and stay away from processed foods. If you crave something, then eat it, but in a smaller portion than what you're use to (all your body needs is a little to get rid of that craving!). You can do it!

    As long as I track, I'm good with healthy eating but I am very inconsistent about fitness minutes. . . . ugh

I'm not gone, just had a minor set back- but I'm back!

Sunday, November 10, 2013

I blew out my back and strained a muscle in my abdomen area. After 3 days I had to go to the doctor because the pain was so bad all I wanted to do was sleep. I have been laying very low and the pain now is mostly gone! Really don't want to push myself and risk injuring it again. Hoping to start exercising again mid-week, realllyyyyy could use the exercise. I feel like every time I start doing well with diet and exercise, some sort of illness or injury happens and sidetracks me for a while. I know that once this is all healed up, I'll be back at it. I suppose that even though I get sick or injured, all that matters is I keep my goal in mind and get back to the healthy rhythm as soon as I can! :)

    I agree ... I feel like when I get a good routine down or am really motivated to stay on track something comes up. It is hard to get back into a routine but you can do it. Remember to listen to your body ... no more injuries.

    Get back to exercise as your body permits. Sounds like tuning into your body might help. "Tuning in" also requires slower and more deliberate effort, which will also help.

Really glad to see how motivated you are. Just don't be over-motivated or you'll end up as a wreck -- like me. emoticon

health means ..

Saturday, October 26, 2013

To me health means how well we treat our body and how well our body treats us. If we treat our bodies with respect, then it hopefully will be able to help us to stay healthier with less complications.

no excuses..

Friday, October 25, 2013

I am guilty of saying that my boyfriend was a negative influence in my weight loss/healthy lifestyle goals. It was so easy to point the finger, but I have decided that even though I was with him whenever we went out to eat he never made me choose what to eat or how much to eat- that was all me. We live about 40 minutes apart and with me not working at the moment and him barely scraping by with his retail job, we always end up at McDonalds or some other cost efficient food place when we are on the go. It's so much easier this way, when both of us can eat for less than $6. I used to order a McChicken, a hamburger, we'd share nuggets, and we'd split a fry. When we'd splurge I'd get a mcFlurry and he'd get a shake. The last two times that we have gone I have gotten a parfait and a plain McChicken. He eats a few bites of the McChicken and I toss some of the bread. In no way was he forcing me to eat what I was before, so it was my fault- completely my fault. Now that I'm making better choices and am more aware of what I'm eating, he's actually pretty supportive. Like oh, the parfait looks delicious- I'll start eating those too. And by eating a few bites of my McChicken when I ask he is cutting out even a few more calories for me! I'm hoping that as I become more aware of what I choose to eat and do, that he will slowly also start looking more into what he eats. I also used to bring him a McDonalds coffee to work and some requested hash browns if I was driving by and get myself a coffee since I was there. On the days I do go, I skip the coffee for myself and only have a nibble of his hash brown. I think that by me introducing him to the parfait, I will start getting him that instead. The days I get him the coffee he doesn't go to the gas station and get an energy drink and a big blueberry muffin - and who knows what else. If we ever move in together, I know I will cook more meals and it will be easier- but for now the steps I'm taking now towards a healthier lifestyle will only make it easier and I'll have MORE options by being healthy!! emoticon I'm so excited!!!

    Sounds like you are making good progress. The hard part for me is keeping good stuff around the house for when I want to grab something quick. You can also save money and calories by meeting at a park for lunch and bringing something healthy from home. (Works much better in the summer, this cold weather makes this not such a hot idea).
Good luck.
