Day 2 ~ Workout Complete!! Will make tomorrow Better!

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

Day 2!! Only walked around neighborhood for almost 2 miles! My eating was okay. I did eat 2 donuts, yep I can be honest. My hubby brought them home, they were Homemade donuts ~ my favorite!!! But tomorrow NO DONUTS.. LOL.

Accomplishment me for today, was making myself get out & go walking b/c my hubby had a headache when he got home & we were suppose to go to the gym but instead of sitting on the couch ~ I got up & went walking!! Counting the SMALL ACHIEVEMENTS!!

LET'S KEEP PUSHING!!! I'M NOT GIVING UP!!

    Hey Friend! Just got back from a vacation, and saw your 2 blogs. I'm hoping you are keeping up the good work... but if not, tomorrow is a new day and another chance!

I have been losing v-e-r-y slowly, but I'm ok with that. In 2013, I lost 5 pounds. This year I have lost 12 so far. I even hit one-der-land the day before I left on vacation... But I have figured out what is working for me, and that is what you have to do. I can't eat 1000 calories a day... I need to balance my eating and exercise, because this is for a lifetime, not just until I reach a certain weight...

Miss seeing you on-line all the time!

SOOOOO...It's My BIRTHDAY.. I should be HAPPY??? HMMMM..

Friday, May 30, 2014

SOOOOO...It's My BIRTHDAY.. I should be HAPPY??? HMMMM..

Today should be a day filled with HAPPINESS & EXCITEMENT!!! However, I am not.. Don't get me wrong.. I am BEYOND BLESSED but realize that I am NOT MY BEST!! I mean when I look at my life everything is great I have 2 AMAZING SONS, Loving Husband, Wonderful Career, Beautiful Home, & a Great Family but there's 1 thing missing ~ MYSELF!!!

Yes, I'm missing being the BEST CASSANDRA. I am unhappy with the way I look. I weighed in today said "245.2." This is what my life is over 240 pounds of FAT, SADNESS, & UNHEALTHINESS. I NEED to conquer this weight problem. I want to be Happy & fill Great when I look at pictures of myself.

I am going to make the most of the day because I know my husband has plans for us tonight & want to show him that I appreciate him making my day special.

Next year for my birthday, I'm going to Jamaica & will not be this weight!!

Just needed to vent.

    Happy B-day friend! 245 isn’t the end of the world, you know that. You will be under 240. You just have to reclaim yourself and go hard after you. I’m still here, cheering you on as I wish you the best.

    Happy Birthday a day late. It is always tough to be happy when things don't seem to be going right for us. Again, my best suggestion is to take 1 thing and make it a habit then add something else to the mix. Have you tried a simple activity tracker that will send you alerts when you are inactive. Polar has a great one that will link to your phone and if you wear a HR transmitter with bluetooth it will give you acurate HR and calorie burn.

SOOOOO.. Eating was BAD YESTERDAY.. Today is a NEW DAY!

Thursday, May 22, 2014

It's Thursday!!!


Well I wish I had good news for yesterday.. I had a HORRIBLE EATING DAY!!! I ate 2 large oatmeal crème pies (YEP, I said 2!!) Then I had 2 of the small (.25 cents) bags of doritos. Honestly, I can't even say why I ate them but I did..LOL.. Plus, no workout either yesterday & won't be able to get one in today since have plans after work.

Honestly, I could've & should've made better decisions yesterday but I didn't.. However, TODAY IS A NEW DAY!! I don't have to REPEAT what I did yesterday. So, I'll be honest with myself & I need to put it out here and be HONEST.. You can ONLY LEARN by being HONEST. So, yes.. I had a BAD day but guess what that doesn't mean TODAY HAS TO BE BAD.. So.. I am going to make better choices today.

I just finished eating my oatmeal for Breakfast. Snack will be an apple. Lunch, orange chicken with brown rice & green beans. Next snack- maybe some dry cereal.

Have a WONDERFUL DAY Sparkers!!

Hey Beautiful, I saw your e mail, and I see you sharing your bad day. I had my share of 2 bad days, and having 2 right now is really unbecoming of me when it comes to “fast” food. That’s not me. I will binge, but it’s not on “fast food” in general it’s all the things you listed in your blog.

* We have to think about our health when we start to eat “poorly”. I know we don’t want to think of those nasty medical underlined causes in our family history, but we have to think of those things, but this is what stops me on “most” of my binges that turns into sugar. Reading the “food” label before I eat it –for some reason once I read those calories and grams I’m so done. It works 80% of the time. Reading those labels really puts things back into perspective for me.

Some of my poor choices are done out of “not wanting to disappoint”. Like my 2 days of poor eating, but I am the queen of bouncing back and getting back on track once it’s done. You’ll become the queen too, and pick your “fat” days. It’s all mental, but sometimes it’s the mind that is leading us and not our belly. I’ve noticed when I do “All you can eat places” I try to eat all that I can. I don’t understand this, but I think it’s a trigger a uncle of mines placed in me years ago. This is a buffet he says. You better get my money’s worth out of this meal.

That’s a saying I’m going to have to let go. I have to understand I’m getting a chance to pick something I really want. Not taste everything is out. Maybe when we do an outing again I’ll make this something “new” to practice. I shared a helpful tip in that e mail to you, and I hope you have a wonderful day.

And hope that tip finds you well in a positive way.
Lynn

God bless & stay conscious!

    And here you are confessing! So you are conscious of what you are eating. That is a step in the right direction of course. So glad we have SP for support 24/7.

You know what to do. I know you will get back on track.

My very bad habit is to bring those "bad" foods into the house "for my husband." Of course I rarely give him these without me sampling them, too. I have gotten into bad trouble with Hersey's kisses or chocolate chocolate-filled cupcakes, chips, etc.

These go down the gullet so fast!

emoticon Try not to have this stuff available. I am trying to catch myself and go looking for some kind of veggie to eat instead. Yesterday I heated a package of frozen squash. I ate the whole 10 oz. with cinnamon and Brown and Brummel yogurt spread. I was not looking for a sweet after I ate that. Beans also fill me up. I try to go get some beans if I am eyeing a sandwich.

Good luck, chris

    So, why did you slip? Don't get me wrong, I'm not being judgmental, what I mean is that it's important to figure out what drove you. If you found those things irresistible I would bet good money that your overall carb intake is still too high and you suffer from physiological cravings. When your blood sugar goes up and down all day long it takes sheer willpower to resist the urge to eat stuff you shouldn't.

Do you ever test your blood sugar? One way to learn to keep yourself on an even keel is to test your blood sugar levels regularly for a few days to see how they relate to how you're feeling. When they drop too low you can end up making bad choices because you feel so lousy.

I just did a quick estimate of your carb intake based on your plan for today - 142g for two meals plus a snack! That's more than you should have all day, if you're trying to lose weight and ditch cravings. It would also explain why you're craving more carbs in the form of junk food - you're still burning sugar, not fat.

Every gram of carbohydrate you eat raises your insulin levels. Insulin tells your body to store fat, not burn it.

    Yes, you DO know what to do (and so do I... so why am I not thin??) ... And it is hard. But you can do it. The first thing is to get RID of those crème pies!!! Those are so bad even for your kids! Get some healthier bad food, LOL... Seriously, if it isn't there, you can't eat it, right? I know you have to keep stuff there for the kids, and probably your hubby too. But read those labels, and make them some better choices, too. Personally, oatmeal makes me hungry. Not enough protein. I eat Kashi cereal because it helps me make it till lunch time. I do like oatmeal, and use it in my meatloaf as filler, and in other ways, because I know it is the kind of fiber that is healthy, but it causes my blood sugar to crash. (I'm hypoglycemic)

It is a new day, and I have no doubt you will do better today. Hugs!

    I too had a horrible eating day yesterday. Things started out well and took a nose dive at that bewitching 3:00 pm and went downhill for the rest of the evening. I woke up this morning and I am determined to make better choices today. Today, I will pick myself up, brush off yesterday's dirt, and continue without beating myself up. Thanks for your honesty. It helps me as much as it helps you.
