DID YOU KNOW......

Friday, February 27, 2009

Hello All My Friends and team mates at various teams. I created this blog to inform you of the "8 Week Battle - #3" team that just opened today. Please come by and check it out. It may be just what you need to help you push through that plateau to the other side. The challenge doesn't officially start until March 16th but we would love to have you come reserve your place before teams fill to capacity. Hope to see you there.

On The Road To Recovery.....

Monday, February 02, 2009

This past week has really proven to be a huge challenge for me as far as staying on plan. My two boys were out of school 3 out of 5 days due to an ice storm. I have found that when they are here it is much harder for me to stay on plan and make good choices with what food I consume. Can't blame them for my failure, it was just plain ole poor planning on my part, but I intend to turn that around this week....today starts new and fresh. Time to step up my game and get serious, not that I wasn't already serious, it's just time to kick some butt for real now. I have been scared to do very much due to knee surgery that I had 3 weeks ago but now it's time to test my limits and just see what is out there and what I can accomplish. I am determined to make this work and find the lean sexy body that is hiding under all this extra baggage....I want the "Little Black Dress", and I want to look amazing in it....lol...to make my hubby's jaw drop would just be an added bonus....lol. I have passed a milestone in my journey though that I must acknowledge. Every time before when I would attempt to lose weight, I never lost over 30 pounds....this time around I am already at 39 pounds lost....only 21 more to goal and maintence....yah me.

    I know how hard it is to be consistent when your schedule has gone out of wack, but you have a great outlook. Just start fresh today. Take it easy with your knee, push yourself, but don't over exert yourself. Be safe and good luck!

It is so much harder to stay true with a house full of people! I know about that struggle ~ and do not envy you, as far as that part goes. I only have me and the bf and I have him signed on to a healthy eating plan. Of course, he lost 30 in just a few months, and I gained 5 in the same time.

Have to rush back to my patients. We are busy busy busy at the hospital today. Only, want to check in and let you know you are on my mind :).

Weekend Railroads

Sunday, January 25, 2009

Wow...today has been pretty good. The weekends seem to be the hardest for me. All the kids are at home instead of school so they are constantly wanting something to eat or drink and that tends to make me feel unsatisfied and want to do the same. Need to get my feelings in check. The stress of the brotherly love my boys have for one another doesn't help either. Can we say I think that I may be uncovering that I could be an emotional eater...wow I have not given that much thought until now.

The week days are much better for controlling my eating because I am soooooo busy with everything that needs and has to be done. I guess I really depend on the 5 days more than I thought. Glad the weekend is just 2 days instead of 5, I would probably really be in some serious trouble....lol....anyway I'm doing this blog now because I am wanting something instead of needing something. Had to get the hands busy doing something other than going in the direction of my mouth.

    Way to go girl! Instead of eating because emotions or boredom write in your blog. I am starting to keep a live journal now because I have to keep myself occupied. I eat out of boredom! I either do that or text my friends and family to keep my mind off of food. I will talk about anything by text, I hate talking on the phone but love my texting. Its pretty hard to eat and text. emoticon

    I know what you mean! When my kids were home I always thought I should eat every time they did, and we all know kids can be bottomless pits. Maybe you could plan on spreading your calories out over several small meals instead of fewer bigger meals, then you could have a little bit whenever they wanted something.

I Fell Down...

Thursday, January 22, 2009

Yesterday was a really good day until about 5 pm. My boys asked for CHEESE STICKS. I have been able to control and avoid every temptation for 14 weeks until the dreaded cheese stck request. I just checked out of the body and scarfed down 4 of them before I knew what had hit me. As with every time I fell before, as soon as the last bite was swallowed I began beating myself up and this mentality seems to last for days. I just get so pissed at myself and want to hide, scream, cry, throw up, give up. It's like this ongoing pitty party for me. I hate it. I will recover, I have to. I have come too far this time to throw it all away over some stupid cheese sticks and poor planning on my part.

  Ok, get the kicking over emoticon and then let it go. Move on. It happened, nothing you can do about it now. Been there, done that, and go the a$$ to show for it. In the past, I've always let something like cheese sticks lead me into a week long (or longer) binge, but not any more. Today is a new day, blah, blah, blah - you know how it goes.

I am looking forward to that "I Lost 40lbs with SparkPeople" logo on your page!
