Truly scary Halloween

Tuesday, November 01, 2011

Well, after a great, healthy start to the day I am ending it with a giant Stomache ache and a ton of regret. I ran this morning and ate super healthy all day and ruined it by "sampling" some of my sons candy. I couldn't stop! I had between 7-10 mini candy bars. To make it worse, my youngest son is trick or treating now too! Two bags of candy! When we came home I dumped almost all my youngest's in a bag and told my oldest son to "choose the candy he wanted to keep". The rest we are donating "to the kids in the hospital who don't get to trick or treat". Which is really just my husbands office at the hospital he works at. I feel bad lying but he is only four and doesn't need the candy, he also doesn't have much of a sweet tooth and the candy will likely just sit there taunting me. My plan this year was to only hit a few houses but the kids were having so much fun with their cousins I think I didn't stop it soon enough. Time to start fresh (again) tomorrow! And try to remember how yucky. Feel when I eat crap!

Dealing with cravings

Saturday, October 29, 2011

I need to spend more time on Spark, I was doing so well that I think I got a little too comfortable! But my cravings are back and it is just so tricky! I know all the little things to do to help with them, but sometimes they are just THERE. I do well when I SPARK during them, it is a nice distraction! I also researched raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar tonight and it sounds AWSOME! It also sounds like the vinegar will help even out blood sugar which will curb cravings. I made it "safely" through the day but I'm going to my sons school Halloween party tomorrow, I'll just eat a high protein healthy breakfast and that should help. I just don't know why the pull for sugar is so strong! I hate that it has such a hold on me. Just WRITING this helps, it's good to get your thoughts out. I sooo badly want to reach my goal weight by January 1st (it'll have been a whole year) it really means a lot to me. I need to focus on that! I can do it!

    Remember that scripture: "I can do all things through Him who strengthens me". You are bigger than your cravings- You're the boss!

I have found that when I have too many carbs- cravings are there. I'm doing the South Beach approach. Working well because much less carbs.

You will succeed! Those children of yours are gorgeous! My daughter lives across the river in Vancouver with a 3 mo/old and 21 mo/old.

God Bless! emoticon

Starting again...

Friday, October 14, 2011

Back from vacation and all I can say is I CANNT WAIT to bet back on plan!!!! I am not going to weigh myself for another week, I'm scared I gained and don't want to get depressed. I must want to charge ahead and get back to where I was.... LOSING!!! I did. It feel great in Maui when I ate whatever I wanted. My body just isn't the same anymore, I cant eat crap. I'm going to food blog this week to keep myself in check


75 minutes of yoga

One egg, two slices of turkey bacon
Apple
Large bowl of GREEN soup (all veggie)
Small salad with diced chicken, veggie, vinaigrette
One cup Greek yogurt with chia seeds

Wasn't as hungry as usual, I think my body is rebelling from too much food!

    Welcome back! So how did you like it? What all did you do? You should make a blog about that with or without pics:) Glad to see you are back on track!

    One reason that I like this eating plan, is that it seems to help you bounce right back after a little lapse. Hawaii is beautiful...a hard place to restrict your food! You'll do great...welcome back!

    Glad to hear you enjoyed Hawaii I have not been there since way back in 1991 it was beautiful. I only had a couple days as it was a stop for the ship on the way to the Persian Gulf in the first gulf war. I would love to go back there someday and see how much it has changed. Snorkeling in Waimea Bay was amazing. I am confident you can achieve your goals you seem like a very determined woman. Best of luck to you.

This is why I can't have treats in the house!

Monday, September 26, 2011

Today was good, I ate healthy and small portions. This evening my four year old asked for a piece of candy "hidden on top of the fridge". Huh? Turns out he got some loot out of the pinata at a birthday party. I let him have two, and than I proceeded to eat half the bag! (about 8 tootsie rolls). It is a little too easy to sabotage my success if the treats are anywhere in the house! I know this, It just caught me off guard and my self control wavered. It's not enough to cause me to gain considering I made great choices the rest of the day, but it's enough to cause me to maintain. I can't wait to get to a weight where I can just maintain! Tomorrow I will go running and start fresh. I've got to come up with a plan for the Halloween candy.

    It is hard to resist treats...but I put them where I can't see them and that helps a lot. I hope you find a plan for the Halloween candy! lol

    I'm thinking about halloween early too. I have little self control, and it's best for me to stay away completely. I've been off candy for at least 9 months now, but I'm always afraid of slipping up -- especially when you have the "greenlight" from halloween where candy is the standard.

My plan is to take my 5 year old trick or treating. We will not overdo it with multiple neighborhoods/blocks. We will trick or treat for two or three blocks. Thereafter, I'm going to take 1/2 of the treats to work and place it in central location for its quick consumption. The other 1/2 I'll give him a piece or two a day. Fortunately, he usually forgets about it after a week, and I can discard the rest. I've been telling myself that eating junk food is just a temporary pleasure where satisfaction is near achieved. It only leaves me wanting more.

Good luck to you on halloween. We can do this.

    I hear what you are saying! It can be tough, but our desire to be healthy is stronger!!
Especially if you have had any debilitating illness in your life. I just remind myself, sugar and yeast are inflammation and diseases friend. If a nice glass of lemonade might subside your desire - squeeze 1/2 lemon, stevia to taste with water - that is a healthy & tasty treat!

Have a great week!

    You are so right. This past week, we had many doctor appointments but the one that mattered most was the yearly check-up we got from our family doctor. My son is now over weight and we all discussed this. With his health now in jeopardy, I got a lot of good tips on what to do.

I went shopping this past weekend and got all snacks that would be just as healthy for myself as well as my son. There's more yogurts, trail mixes and fruit in the house more than ever. I am now making it my job to keep the rest of the home as healthy as I do myself. I never thought my children would become over-weight but here it is.

Keep the bad snacks away! Good for your catching it!

    We have treats in the house always. I don't want to deprive myself or my family. I am working on having 1-2 pieces occasionally and teaching the kids the same. I find knowing it's always there is easier. Does that make any sense..lol. If it's rare then I would be more tempted to get all I can I guess.

Anyway...have a great new start! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I so understand. I am far better off not having junk around because if it is there, I am eating it. I would love to be someone who can indulge a tiny bit every day but I am not. Good luck!!

Hope your day is happy and healthy!

    If you feel derived of your sweets, try having a little every day. I keep Honey nut Cheerios in a baggie at my desk. While I am online I munch on one Cheerio at a time. This keeps me from pigging out on sweets after dinner. I want chocolate then I have it. Just a little piece that I savor slowly. That way I don't go nuts when family members bring candy to the house. Its a sense of deprivation that causes a problem. If you eat a whole candy bar, be honest and put it in your tracker. You can skip something else later in your diet to make up for it. We tend to think of our calorie allotment as by the day but its over time that we gain weight. We didn't get fat in a day and one oops isn't going to matter over all the good food you eat.
Since most Halloween candy is meant for 5 y/o's buy yourself something healthy like a Ghirardelli Intense Dark Evening Dream candy bar. It has 60% cacao and you will only want a square or two at a time because of the richness. I'm a Chocoholic and even I can control my portion with this. Its an adult candy that most kids wouldn't care for. So enjoy. emoticon

Gathering my thoughts

Sunday, September 25, 2011

I want to commit to blogging daily, it really does help clear my head and I think that helps keep balance in my life. I did NOT have cravings today, I can't believe the difference! Yesterday I just wanted to be locked in a room with a chocolate cake and today I barely thought about food. It sure makes me have empathy for people who really struggle with cravings, I do have them regularly but can usually work through them. I made sure to eat very healthfully to try to make up for yesterday, lunch was roasted beet and apple soup! Delicious. I did feel a heavy anxiety to get rid of these last eight pounds, I know there are no short cuts either. It's gonna take a lot of commitment and sweat. I just want to do this! I have never been at my goal weight before and I am soooo ready! As the scale goes down, it becomes more difficult so I just have to work HARDER! :)
