wow.... where has January gone???
last night wasn't as productive as I had hoped it would be... turns out my programs were reruns so I didn't end up on the treadmill.. :( that's ok, just a bump in the road. going to have to start a series on DVD that interests me... that worked in the past. Could only watch Sex in the City when I was walking.... going to start Entourage this weekend and see if that keeps my attention the same way :)

1/2 price salad bar at work on Fridays :) I have always made my salad the same, but last friday I started changing it up a bit and trying new things in my dish. It's a great way to try just a little of something new... and it very inexpensive so I don't feel bad if it doesn't work out and I have to throw it away .

    Re-joining SP in January has made me realize how much work goes into making your goals for maintaining a steady weight loss. I am so excited to see what 2011 on my next Birthday brings.

For me exercising with good pumping music in my ears is what gets me moving. I find that I can use the tempo of the music to change the intervals or intensity of the workout and I believe that this is always good to do so that you shake up the routine. It also increases your body's response to shedding the calories.

  DVDs while on the elliptical is a great idea. You get so wrapped up in the story line that sometimes you can forget you're exercising. Yes, I've done it, and yes, I paid for it the next day!!

    I agree Jan. Flew by!!! I LOVE the idea of watching a dvd series to keep you going on the treadmill!! That is an Awesome IDEA!!

almost there.... I can smell the weekend just around the corner :)

have decided that Thursday nights are going to be my treadmill nights. I usually end up in front of the tv for atleast 2 hrs (which is a ton for me) but, I have decided to make my tv viewing a treadmill workout instead. we'll see how it goes tonight, I'm pretty clumsy so I hope that I don't get too into my shows and trip :) haha

food has gone well this week. I met w/ a counselor on monday. One thing I came away with is that I need to change my mindset of myself before I can change my outside. I have always been the biggest person in the room... or atleast felt that way. I was the tallest in my 4th, 5th and 6th grade class, even taller than my 4th and 5th grade teachers!! somehow I ended up w/ lots of short friends in jr high and hs... that didn't help either. I realized how much it is always on my mind.... so, now I am trying to start finding other things about myself that I use to decribe me... other than the big one. i.e. I am creative, I am musical, I am trustworthy, I am dependable... etc. Each day I list 3 things that I am .... hopefully once I change my insides, I can make progress on the outsides.

    I walk on my treadmill while watching TV too. The time just passes by so quickly. emoticon

I love your new attitude about looking for positive attributes rather than negative. Toss those insecurities out the window. I'm with you on this!! emoticon

  Focusing on the positives about yourself is a great plan! We don't often take the time to stop and think about all the good attributes we have. It makes sense that we need to feel good about ourselves on the inside before making changes to the outside. Thanks for sharing that!

okay, half way thru the week.... need to keep my momentum going. the weather has turned drastically and it's really cold again (7 degrees and -6 wind chill today). makes it harder to get out for those 2 walk each day... and when we go, we usually don't make it the whole way but take a shorter route instead. i end up feeling good once we're out there, but the wind and cold take such a told on my skin/face that I literally cannot stay out the entire time. ugh! can't wait for spring!!!

did okay eating at work yesterday but it works best if i NEVER set foot in the cafeteria at all.... way to tempting. so, i have packed my lunch again today :)

better get a roll on and get ready to go.

wow, what a great day yesterday! so proud of myself. had a food plan, stuck to it, no extra snacks at lunch, lots of liquids, went to the gym (though I didn't want to)... great day!

am making lunch for today, didn't have any protein out of the freezer, and was going to just buy my lunch instead, then remembered that I had bought some new light soups this weekend so I have a new things to try for lunch today ;)

tomorrow is my weigh in day.... have my fingers crossed that the scale went the right way this time :)

did good today... a friend wanted to go for chinese tonight, but convinced her to go for big tossed salads instead :) yay!

it's cold and windy out there, tuesdays are my night off from the gym, really wanted a night off all together, but got my bootae in gear and took the dog for her walk... once I got moving, and watching her enjoy everything little smell along the way, it totally cheered me up. had me smiling in no time... what a great way to end the day!

Had a pretty productive weekend - and made some healthy food for my lunches this week. In the middle of all the great things that were going on, I did have one major disappointment, but am proud of myself that I didn't let it start an emotional binge... that seems to be my pattern, one disappointment leads me to eat and then I have another disappointment that I actually cause to myself. This time I didn't let someone else destroy what I am working towards.

Have a good week ahead of me, temps are dropping again, so we'll have to bundle up for our walks, but atleast we finally get to go again :) yea!!

Picked up the dog from daycare (one tired puppy!!), came home and really didn't want to go to the gym, but I did :) Yea me!! I was planning on having supper when I got back, but by the time I got home, found out that I'm not even hungry!! Overall, had a pretty great day!

  I know how you feel I am the same way. if I get depressed I eat. I need to lose this weight as I am starting to really feel it.
