No More Promises!

Wednesday, April 14, 2010

Last week I bought 2 bags of Dove dark chocolate Promises on special at the grocery store. I did really well for a couple of days, just eating 1 or 2 of the little "more healthy" chocolates, but then I went crazy and ate about 10 of them. So yesterday I took the 2 bags to work and put them on the counter. They are almost gone now and I am glad I got rid of the Promises...No more Promises.

    I do the same thing with Dark Chocolate Hershey Kisses. Why, oh, Why, do we do those things to ourselves????? Wish I knew.

    Oh goodness, I don't buy those either, I'll eat half the bag in one sitting if I do!

    I sometimes wonder why I do things like buying something that is definitely not what I want to be eating. I bought licorice a week or two before Easter and thank goodness I was able to hide it with the Easter goodies, because when I opened it, I only planned to eat one and then I thought one more won't hurt. When I caught myself reaching for the fourth piece, I knew that I couldn't handle it. I thought about it for a long time and realized that my biggest mistake was in buying it at all. I am so glad that chocolate hasn't entered my shopping cart at all. You did good, and probably made a lot of other people happy in the process.

    I agree with you on not keeping these treats at home. I know that if I have them on hand and am feeling a craving, I can't stop at one or two. Good job and taking them to work!!!!1

What WAS I Thinking?

Tuesday, April 13, 2010

Last night I went to the fridge for an apple. We were out. All I wanted was an apple. I couldn't go to the store because we were having somone come over to estimate a painting job on our house....So I ate ice cream, PB, chocolate and bread. It didn't satisfy my craving and it did blow my day. What was I thinking? Why would I do that? As much as my habits are changing, I am still a compulsive eater. I also realized when I looked back (too late of course) that I didn't drink my 8 glasses of water yesterday. I am moving on, but I need to remember that I am an emotional eater and I need to drink my water. Today is a new day and I won't look back except to remember the lesson. My first impulse when I realized what I did was to berate my self, but what good would that do. Today is a new day. Life is still good.

    Can I ever relate...when I start mindlessly eating I think about the fact that the only person that I am disappointing is me...I really try to remember that being accountable to me is important...often I think about how much easier it would be if we didn't have to eat to survive..just stop eating like stopping smoking...wishful thinking I know.
Rough days can be good reminders of how far you have come.

    Nancy, we DO all slip up. But the difference is we get right back on. I believe these spells are just reminders that we will always have to be on guard. I always remind myself that even my "normal" friends sometimes overindulge and feel uncomfortable but not guilty and just resume normal eating the next day! emoticon
Hugs,
Gaye

    Yikes! We all slip up sometimes, but the important thing is that you learned from your mistake. Just take it in stride and keep on makin' healthy choices!

    Good job Daisybelle

Face the ugly and move on

I have found that the only way I can 'not eat ice cream' is to not allow it in the house. It is my worst food addiction and I'll fall on it every time.

God bless and don't waste time on yesterday!!!

    emoticon good for you that you recognize this. it's hard though when you think you've reformed, but not as much. emoticon i can empathize!

sunday & monday i made some bad food choices (which i entered in the nutrition tracker). but i'm kind of surprised at myself. argh - i'm going to make a list of things i don't want to eat so i can remind myself about this. and go back to not buying the stuff too.

have a good day today!

  You have the right attitude about moving on! As one who has been where you are more often than I like to think about I have found that this is a long term journey. I don't think I will ever be able to say that I've "arrived." I love the support of spark members and the site in general! Keep on with your fight!! emoticon

    We all "blow it" so don't beat yourself up. Just flip and start over. We all learn from our "goofs." I know that I do. lol

    Good Attitude! I find myself "blowing it" almost weekly! No sense berating yourself. It's a waste of time and accomplishes nothing except making you feel worse. You did the right thing. Move on and learn from your weakness.

Blowin' Off Steam

Monday, April 12, 2010

We're having someone come over to discuss painting the outside of our house tonight. I don't want to listen. I want DH to make the decision. Period. The policy of this company is that both partners have to listen to the spiel and both have to sign. I resent that. We should be able to make this decision any way we want. Darn it! I just hope I can be civil to her. I don't feel like being civil so I thought I'd write this blog and see if it helps me blow off steam.

We'll see.....

Spring Sprung in the Mountains

Sunday, April 11, 2010

Snow is melted. Very little mud. Sunny skies. Hiked in just jeans and a long sleeve shirt.
Oh it was good!

    You are so lucky! I wish I lived in a place that I could go hiking on a daily basis. My walk around the neighborhood can be depressing :-) I hope you know that you are blessed!

Practice Walking

Friday, April 09, 2010

DH and I went on another 5k route today! Improved my time by 5 min to 55 minutes. emoticon

We took Bucky. He made things interesting. I'd be walking at a brisk pace and wham....There was Bucky right in my path. At least I got to exercise my flexibility of movement.

The sun was shining and there was a soft breeze and the beautiful Front Range Mountains were snowcapped and glistening. What a day...What a life...Now ... off to the Mountains.
