Monday's Blog

Monday, February 21, 2011

I had a good breakfast of canelope, bacon, and muffin. Plus, I done 74 minutes of exercise.
That is pretty good for me. I did have a decent lunch with my grandmother. I had one hotdog and half of a serving size of potato salad. Very careful with that....Yahoo for me, I love hotdog buns. That is something tocelebrate... Going for now.... Holly

Cats TeamChallenge: My Commitment

Saturday, February 19, 2011

I am going to decide to do things that are good for me from now on. I am making the decision to stop the sabotage. I am going to stop deciding to eat the feelings and write them down on paper. I would love to get down to a healthy weight. That is why I am going to be serious with the 8 Week challenge we have coming up with the Cats Team. I have to lose 8.25 pounds.
I am 163 pounds now, which means I have to be 155 by the end of the race. Which is going to take a lot of work. However, I can do this with determination and support from my team.
You have helped me this far and I thank you!!!!!!
This is what I am going to do to make this work:I am going to get up early and exercise for 30 minutes a day without excuses.
I will drink my 8 cups of water and eat 5x fruits and veggies a day no exceptions.
I will make sure that I start and stick to Dr. Phil and not stray from it by any means.
I will be honest with what I put in my mouth (No sneaking food or deciding to not use portion sizes
)I will support and encouragement my fellow kitty members and mom on this challenge.
I want to be more confident and energetic by the end of this thing.
So, I am thinking about putting some positive thinking skills into there as well. That might help with the wanting to overeat. Say, I do yoga or exercise everytime I want to steal some food. I can also pick up a book. Sounds like this is going to be a very good 2011 Challenge. Will be getting closer to a healthier and happier me. GO CATS!!!!!!!

Winter Cats 2011: How I want to Look/Food Triggers

Friday, February 18, 2011

I know that I have been struggling with my weight for a long time. I have never been confident in my looks or weight. I want to get rid of all those FAKE images of how Women are suppose to look and be a healthy weight! I am 165 now and want to hit the 130s. (My goal is to be 135 which is what I was before starting Spark people). I do believe that is a good weight for me. I had plenty of energy and felt great about myself. However, I made the dumb mistake of going back to my eating patterns. And here I am again, losing the weight! My trigger foods are Chocolate, Carbs, and peanut butter. I eat when I am happy, sad, frustrated, or when I am celebrating with my friends. I eat just to do it! I tend to medicate which makes me an emotional eater. And then I feel terribly guilty after I have done it. I need to learn to talk to others and tell them how I am feeling. Not just bottle it up and reach for that cookie or the peanut butter crackers. I want to do this for me and to help others along the way. Thank you to all my sparks friends. I couldn't have done it without you! I am going to support you all, whether you are a SP friend from on of my groups, or just stopping by. We can all do this together! Bye for now guys!!!!!

    We ALL have triggers. I heard a great tip the other day. If you are craving or wanting something you shouldn't set a timer for 20 minutes. During those 20 minutes do something you enjoy that doesn't involve food. More than likely if you are enjoying yourself and are NOT really hungry you will have forgotten about that guilty pleasure. Maybe you don't even set the timer. Find something you enjoy and find your comfort in that activity. I know I'm going to try this.

Good Bye Procrastination!

Friday, February 04, 2011

I have trouble with being lazy and waiting til the last minute to do things. That is why I feel like I can't get it all done, so I end up getting very frustrated and stressed out.
I tend to be like well I will get to that later, or I will put it off til tomorrow. But, you know it tomorrow never comes! It is like I have Scarlet O'Herra Syndrome or something. emoticon NO LONGER, I will make sure I do things when they come up from now on. (It wouldn't hurt to make myself a list. Get some time management going on too). What do you think? Any feedback/suggestions would be helpful!

    Yes do what some of the others suggest. Start with a simple list of things YOU HAVE TO DO. Reward yourself. If you still have time tackle other things.

You can absolutely do it. As the Nike slogan goes, "JUST DO IT!"

    Step # 1 - realizing that you do procrastinate. I agree with Educgrad that writing down only 3 things/day that you know you will complete will encourage success and a good feeling of accomplishment. I usually start by writing down my "master list" of everything i need to get accomplished. I then break it down into groups of similiar items and then further break it down to a few items/day. It feels awesome when you can cross them off and then see your master list get smaller and smaller and smaller. Also, having a friend checking in once and a while to see how things are going also helps. You don't want to do it alone!!
Take care and awesome blog! emoticon

    Have you tried just writing down 3 things you want to get done today?If you get them done, reward yourself(not with food).You can make 1 of those to get in 10 min.of exercise.Just my thoughts.have a great day

    You can try scheduling. Everyone is different. I only schedule things that are absolutely necessary to schedule otherwise, I am one of those people who has to be going crazy with things to get them done.
