for about 4-6 weeks. I need to refocus. I had lost 40-50 pounds before I opened this account. I need to lose 10-15 pounds by 4/22/14 and I have been trying to do that for 4-6 months believe it or not. Its crunch time and I'm 10 pounds from $1000 from PHP. Watching myself on Sparkpeople everyday not make my goal is screwing with my head along with a few other people and things. Looking forward to telling how things went next month. Keep up the good work! emoticon

I'm being broken! I'm eating and doing things I haven't done in 2yrs. I never thought it would be this damn easy. No mercy!

I move some of my calories(the bad ones) over to the next day and use them in tomorrow's calorie count? I do this to stay under my calories count for the day on occasions. I end up eating less the next day to compensate for calories already posted. Make sense? And is it CHEATING or am I playing trick on myself.

    I don't think you're alone in this kind of accounting ;) Best to try and limit your cals to 24 hours and then begin again, whenever that 24 hour clock restarts. BTW, emoticon with the progress!

    Honestly, I think you should be honest with yourself. Eat less the next day to make up for it. Don't feel guilty about it!
Why not go for a weekly goal (like the Fitness Tracker) and if at the end of the week you are in your calorie range, then great job! Life is not easy, it's up and down and you need to be able to go with the flow. If you have a high day, and can make the next day on the low side then you are learning to compensate and go with the flow of life and still maintain a balance! I think that is great. But I would still be honest with myself on my high calorie days...but that is just me. The only person you are "cheating" is yourself.

Tired of Snackin'

Tuesday, September 10, 2013

So I'm sitting at my office desk as I write and snacking. Snack, snack all damn day. Yeah, its ok food. Granola bars, fruit and lately boiled eggs. I thought if I admitted to or own up to being an emotional eater I could deal with all the snacking I was doing but sometimes I snack my dinner away and often end up having to bake a fish fillet for super to stay under my calorie count for the day. Anyway, back to snacking, snacking and more snacking. Its like I cant bring enough fruit into work for the day because of all the snacking I'm doing. Honestly, I'm safest when I'm asleep at home in my bed. Grapes, apples and peaches even late at night. What is it? Why cant I just not eat if I'm not hungry? Oh yeah, red meat kills my calorie count for the day too. I've often considered giving it up too but that's taking me to a whole other level that I'm not educated enough to give up YET.

    I have the same problem, especially if I haven't gotten much rest the night before I catch myself snacking on sunflower seeds. One thing that helped me was putting my snacks in the break room fridge (that is if no one in your office will eat it). It makes me only snack during my break times and it actually makes me take my breaks. Of course our break room is all the way on the other side of the building.

The in between time I keep a 32oz jug that I fill with water (I throw some cucumbers, lemons or oranges into it) and if I start to feel like I want to snack I drink as much water as I can in one drink and if after I'm done I still want to snack I go get my snack.

That's what works for me. Keep going though you can do it!!! emoticon

    Sometimes I go through super snacking days. I've noticed way more cravings lately and wonder if the diminishing sun hours have anything to do with it.

Anyway, I now put on a super dancey song for 3 minutes and dance and then give myself permission to snack if I still want it.

Sounds silly, but it gets rid of 90% of the snacking and gives me some exercise (a lot on some days!).

Kissing 50'

Monday, August 26, 2013

Why did I wait until I was 47 yrs old to get a grip on my weight? Iam now 49 and never felt better. Why didn't I do this when I was 37 or 30! I went to a retirement party for a friend of a friend Saturday evening. They had what I considered to be the usual "Ass Fat" foods. I only had 6 meat balls, 2 cups of fruit and some water. I looked at what was offered and couldn't do it. No fried chicken, no mac and cheese, no spaghetti, no greens, no ham hocks and no beer for me. Oh, I did eat a serving of potato salad. The very next day(Sunday) my sister called and said she cooked Sunday dinner. Hell, I knew what that meant as well. I couldn't do that either. I baked my chicken legs and a whole potato in my crock pot. I cant believe sometimes the way I use to eat and not even think about doing any exercise to take it back off. So here I sit Kissin' 50 and Feelin'30. emoticon
