Dealing with a setback

Monday, February 02, 2009

Well, the ride had to end sometime. I have never been on a calorie restricted diet where there was not a bump or two in the road. This time is no different. Today's weigh-in indicated that I was up one pound from last week, despite a week of 1,000 total calories under my minimum range. The math works out to at least a one pound loss, instead I gained. I know, it could be water or bulk retention or this cold that I have been dealing with the past 6 days. I will treat it (the weight gain)rationally. However, it still is a bump. For now, I will ignore it and accept it as part of the process and continue on.

  


Superbowl Sunday

Sunday, February 01, 2009

Superbowl Sunday and the world is filled with parties. Actually, I could care less about the game or the outcome or the parties. There are a lot of advertisements with store discounts and two-for-ones out there and me and Sharon are going to take advantage of them. To everyone else, I hope your team wins and that you are able to stay on your SP plan today!

  


Being accountable

Saturday, January 31, 2009

The nice thing about SP is that they help you set up a program that not only will get you where you have to be, but if followed properly, holds you personally accountable for your success. You can see, day to day if you are meeting your short term goals and how that helps towards your mid-term goals and consequently your long range objectives. If you do it, record it. Only then will you see it and become responsible for the consequences. I like that.

  


TGIF - or really?

Friday, January 30, 2009

Weekends are nice to kick back, forget about the grind at the office and spend some time with the family and friends. The trouble is that social times tend to involve eating and drinking. And that usually spells trouble for me. This week I have swore off wine and spirits so that should help me keep my wits. Lets just see how successful I can be.

  


Colds - Good or Bad

Thursday, January 29, 2009

Coming down with a mid-winter cold. Sometimes these things can derail my SP program by knocking me off my daily routine. Other times they help by keeping my mind off sweets and snacks. I am determined to let this cold run its course while staying on mine.
