If only I had stuck to my program

Friday, September 05, 2014

Its Friday again. I have completed all my exercises five days and have stayed on my program. I feel very proud of me. It's unreal to me how time is just flying. I have been doing this program two months and have lost 26 pounds as of today. I weigh tomorrow and hopefully I will have lost another pound. Before you know it a year will be gone and I want to be able to look back to my blogs and be proud that I have continued on my healthy way. That I am 100 pounds lighter, or close. I do not want to look back and say if only I had stuck with it I would be such and such. Very low sugar has kept me level headed and on my program. I have a square of dark chocolate sometimes but it does not trigger a binge in me. The program I am following does not trigger binges. Maybe a binge on broccoli or other greens but I doubt that. I never heard of anyone getting fat off of vegetables. I am looking forward to a great weekend end and the start of another week to follow my program.

One bite can be enough

Wednesday, September 03, 2014

I have lost 26 pounds so far and I am feeling so great because I am doing something about my health. I am learning new things also. I learned last night that a bite is as good as the whole thing.
I had made my husband roast, gravy , biscuits, rice, peas, and greens. The roast just about got to me. I was planning on having the whole works but just a serving. I decided to have a taste instead because I had to weigh this morning and I wanted a pound gone at least. Well lo and behold I had two gone. I weighed one bite of biscuit, two teaspoons of gravy and meat and ate that. I measured it and it was about 100 calories which I had to spare. I ate the peas, rice and greens and was very happy. All of this to say the one bite was enough. I am learning when I really want something one bite with satisfy. I am learning to balance my food and exercise. I am learning to not eat anything that I do not like. No wonder I kept gaining the weigh back. I hated the food I was eating. It was like eating cardboard. Who can eat that from now on. I am enjoying eating real food.

Well good for me

Friday, August 22, 2014

Well good for me its Friday and I have followed my program do my exercises and ate healthy.
It sure makes you feel positive and confident when you follow your program. I was reading some of the blogs Spark puts out and they are very good and helpful. I am so proud I found Spark.. I have been here a long time and they never let me down. I may have let me down but not them.
I had to add 100 calories o my program from 1300 to 1400. I was waking in the night with a headache and when I got up in the morning I was trembling and had to eat breakfast before I could even drink my coffee. I had started burning 180 to 202 calories on my bike and my heart rate was 85 to 90 percent plus doing more reps on my weight lifting. My heart was acting strange beating kind of off. I added the 100 calories in the form of yogurt. I started watching what I was eating closer making such I was getting enough nutrition. It worked no headaches, no trembles, no off beating heart. So on I go seeking for health.

    Awesome. I don't think you are letting the program down. You don't want to get sick. I think that was a smart thing to do.

I am giving myself a present.

Thursday, August 21, 2014

I had a great work out this morning. I mean I tore it up. I am doing the recumbent bike to strengthen my knees. They are giving me fits. I can hardly stand for any length of time. The weight I have lost is really helping. I just need a good 100 hundred pounds off. But it will happen in time. I am giving myself a present of one year of eating 1300-1400 calories, recumbent biking for 36 minutes, weight lifting, chest, back, shoulders one day, next day do abs, arms, legs. I will stay as busy as I can. When that present is fulfilled I will get another present until I reach my goal. I really will love having these presents of health. I will show my appreciation of these presents by sticking with my programs and getting healthy. What a joy to have the privilege to do this.

Life or death

Saturday, August 09, 2014

I am proud I decided to show my weight. I have decided to stop hiding and be honest with myself.
I am the one who decided to do something about my weight and be healthy. No one is making me do this. I will be proud of every good decision I make. I will follow my plan every day, weigh twice a week. I will post on Spark and share my victories and failures. I was meditating the other day and I saw in my mind a pair of scales I had loaded one side with fast foods, processed foods, processed sweets, fried foods, on the other side was fruits and vegetables, teas , lean grass grown meats with no hormones or antibiotics, one side glowed with health and life the other side was death. I knew I had to make a choice. What did I want, life or death. I have decided to live and be healthy. I can do anything I set my mind to do. I keep thinking about those scales and I want to keep them before me to remind me of where I am going. The choice is mine.

    It sounds like you are motivated and have a solid plan. Make the best choices that you can, but be forgiving with yourself too. It might not be as black and white as you think, but it is probably good to have an image that keeps you going. Good luck!
