bbback from vacation

Tuesday, August 27, 2013

i'm afraid to step on the scale.
BUTTTTT i'm not afraid that ive reversed my slight progress.
Went to bed last night having not eaten tons through all the air travel--- when I usually make excuses. Yay.
Woke this morning NOT hungry so I waited to have a decent breakfast as I rested up from a busy helping family kind of vacation.

Feels good to be back AND be pretty close to being on track.

Think I will wait a few days for the scale. heehee

AND that is ok. Cause I am ok.

GLAD sparkpeoples are here!

blahblah again-on progress--or the betterer report

Monday, August 05, 2013

Whew here i am at work and all i can think about is a diet coke. YAY this is actually a great thing since there is a pack of o r e o s in my desk drawer! I wasn't even thinking about it until I started writing.

I'm stuck at work with work to do but nothing due right now. I have to wait for someone to finish something before I can see if there is something we can do. heehee i told you it was blahblah time!

Anyway, I feel better about myself why? Because I lost another pound FINALLY. I have struggled with that TOP 10 for weeks now and it has finally taken my letting myself feel the emptiness and not sleep all that well and all those other things that can go along with change of eating habits for me. Change for the better that is.

So what changed? Well, once again I got a yearning for a heavy meal ( often it is a carton of ice cream i crave, but this time it was speghetti). INstead of having that I had the world's largest and pretty much yummiests salads instead. I was careful to put in some protein and even a little fat in the form of whole milk mozzerella--all the betterer for taking in the nutrients.

It was delicious.

So were the 4 little maria cookies I allowed myself much later with a banana. Reminiscent of my father's fave thing- a cookie with a banana. perfect balance.

Some of this and some of that but no need to go crazy over any of it.

I deserve to eat betterer. I deserve to respect my body and what I take in. We all do! We are spoiled people who have enough money to buy too much food. Too much of the wrong kind of food.

It is time once again to start eating like a peasant. I really am a worker bee here at my job, but I can be respected here and I can respect what I do for myself and what I take into myself.

Better respect.
Better food.
Better attitude.
Better body.
I feel a bit betterer. Even if I had to say in such a blah blah blah way.
Turning it over makes it happen.

giving it the ole college try

Monday, July 29, 2013

So I feell like I am getting a bit of a hold on the food stuff, the work stuff, the house work stuff. Just doing a bit at a time and allowing myself to feel good about the dribs and drabs i'm able to accomplish THEN really feel great about the deadlines being finished ahead of time.

Resting, socializing, housecleaning/organizing all in meaningful and reasonable portions is doable.

NEXT I get to work on pushing my physical stuff a bit more, but I do have to be careful not to set myself back. Just read some blogs about getting to the gym and how that is the hardest part. Well for me, I am allowed to go to pools not gyms but have not been taking advantage of the ability as it exhausts me to walk there as parking is far and I am panicking the entire time. But what I will do it get myself to my friend's house to swim AND get myself to the dmv to renew my disabled tag and figure this stuff out.

IN the meantime I get to go on vacation with family AND we all will swim tons. Yay

We can do this! yes in deed and word!

You need to look at those small accomplishments for what they are...stepping stone to a healthier you. Way to go!

I know it is scary sometimes. Tonight I went to the gym again (first at 9:30am) at 5pm for another workout. I was a bit intimidated but being with my friend helped. In the morning I go by myself but all the men are out in the evening at the gym. However, my friend was awesome and she made me feel awesome too.

Enjoy your friend and her pool.

Best of luck lovely lady

not giving up even when i give in

Saturday, July 27, 2013

Frustrated with pain, stomach ache, and not being able to stop at calorie max. I've done worse, but not improving enough right now.

it is really easy to try to override physical pain and emotional issues with overeating.

I may have given in yesterday/last night, but I am not not not giving up.

I am going to get my health back on track!

quick post binge blog

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

So today I didn't binge. Didn't stay on the track I took yesterday. YAY. it is possible to forgive for a sickday crazy eat and move on to a reasonable weak physical but not emotional day.

Thank you Sparkpeople and Spark PEOPL for being here to root us all on to safe and sane eating and life decisions.
