Not doing so well

Wednesday, October 15, 2008

I am not doing very well with my tracking lately. That of course is causing me to eat things I know I shouldn't. I don't know why I can't seem to get back on track. I haven't been logging into Spark -- mainly because by the time I get home I am too tired to do so. Once I fix dinner, help my daughter with homework, get the kids ready for bed -- and finally sit down I just don't seem to have the energy.

It would also help if my husband didn't have a fit and say that I am on the computer all of the time. --It does take a bit of time to enter everything. I guess I just let it all get to me. I need to buckle down and get serious again.

    Hey hun I know that trying to balance family, life and lifestyle changes is hard I know that yea doing all yea can. Sometimes it can be very overwhelming and life seems to be all yea can do. Just remember that yea deserve to be healthier to and that your doing this for yea and your family to have yea around for as long as possible. But in the same yea have to be rested to be able to keep pushing forward on your weight loss journey. Maybe just making time twice a week to do your logging and all on spark is a beginning to help yea get back on track. Continue to do all yea can and I know yea will find your balance. Remember Rome was not built in a day and taking it one day at a time is all yea can do.

Stay positive, stay active and remember to make good food choices.

I've got to start tracking better!

Saturday, August 30, 2008

School started back ---- it's not an excuse, I know, but it is really kicking my butt! I think I have gained 5 pounds in the last 2 weeks. I know a lot of it is simply not being able to get on Spark and track my calories. I know that when I do that I do so well. I am hoping things settle down soon and I get back on track. I have let my habits slip so much that it is going to be hard to restart, but it must be done! I can do this, I know because I have -- now I just have to re-commit.

    I agree with Don, put yourself first, you can then serve and take care of others better.

    One way I have found to keep myself on track when I don't have time to really track my food is to eat portion controled portions. For instance the 100 calorie snack packs, with a whole wheat turkey sandwich. These are pretty easy to watch the calories on.

I don't have the miracle answer, because I suffer the same problem from time too time. But I do wish you the best and hope you are able to find a solution that works for you.

Wishing you the best,

    Of all your competing priorities, you've GOT to make YOURSELF #1!!

Everything else (school work, etc.) will directly benefit from YOU taking care of YOU!

First day of school

Monday, August 25, 2008

So, it wasn't the Teacher's Lounge or even anything in my office or house that made me blow it today. It was Sam's Club! I ate so much junk today! I'll have to do better tomorrow.

I do well all day --then I blow it in the evening. I know I shouldn't eat something, but I can't seem to help myself! I have to get this under control.

    The only way I can not snack at night (or at least snack healthy) is to not have anything that I shouldn't have in the house. It's hard!! Especially when I'm in the grocery store and the potato chips are calling to me. I like pretzel rods since there aren't a HUGE amount in the bag, and 3 is only a little over a hundred calories...

You can do it! Thank you for your tips on starting to do a 5K!

    I told myself no eating after 8 but last night, I ate a lot. I went over calories. I was so stress. My honey was having problems with his ex-wife and I felt helpless.

    I am going through this exact same thing. I try to cut out snacking at night but I can't seem to do it. The more I promise myself I will stop, the more I seem to reach for those Stacey's Cinnamon Brown Sugar Pita Chips. It is almost like an addiction, so I feel your pain! This too will pass, I have faith in the both of us!

Start by picking apart exactly HOW did you stumble yesterday? Mistakes are opportunities for learning!

New Calorie Cycling numbers.

Wednesday, July 16, 2008

It's time to kick it up a notch.

I have new calorie cycling numbers. I plan to start on Sunday with the new numbers. I think Sunday is going to be my hardest day, simply because that tends to be a day when we might eat out -- we usually go after church. I'll just have to crack down and make good choices!! Wish me luck!!

I plan on making my menus for the week and trying to stick to them. I need to remember to take a snack with me at all times. That way I'm not famished when I come near unhealthy foods.

New Calorie Cycling Numbers:

Calorie range: 1200 - 1800
Average daily calories = 1500

SUN - 1200 - Rest Day
MON - 1800 - 30 Day Shred video + Cardio
TUE - 1300 - HIIT Cardio + abs
WED - 1700 - 30 Day Shred video + Cardio
THUR - 1400 - HIIT Cardio and Yoga Booty Ballet video
FRI - 1800 - 30 Day Shred video + Cardio
SAT - 1300 - HIIT Cardio + abs

Feel free to keep up with my progress on my Community Journal: My Summer Self Challenge -- It hasn't been going too well, so I hope this will help. www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/messageb
