I had to move my weight ticker. It hurt to do it but it was needful. If I ever want to conqure this emotional eating honesty is key. I have an awful time with night eating. I am planning once again my food/exercise journal to help me out. The truth is I need to gain control over this food demon. I intend on fighting this no matter. I must plan out my meals carefully and figure how to post on the computer wothjout staying up too late. That is when the food demon comes calling. God has given me power to over come this and I shall do it with God's help and not in my own strength. Day one and starting.

  


Dieting tips to help me and whom ever??? tips from ediets

Tuesday, June 26, 2007

I am vowing to start doing them to the best of my ability!!!!

21 GREAT TIPS: FIGHTING FAT AFTER 40:


1. EAT MORE FRUITS: STUDIES AT PENN STATE UNIVERSITYSHOWS THAT INCREASING FRUIT INTAKE HELPS FACILITATE WEIGHT LOSS.

2. DRINK TEA: RESEARCH SUGGESTS THAT THOSE WHO DRINK TEA (BLACK, GREEN OR WHITE, AS LONG AS IT'S FROM REAL TEA VS HERBAL TEA) HAVE LOWER BMI NUMBERS (BODY MASS INDEX) AND HAVE LESS BODY FAT.

3. LIFT WEIGHTS. BUILD MORE MUSCLES, BURN MORE CALORIES.

4. START MEALS WITH A SALAD AND LOW-FAT DRESSING. SALADS WILL PROVIDE SOME BULK TO HELP FILL YOU UP, SO YOU CAN EAT LESS CALORIES OVERALL.

5. EAT MORE PRTEIN. REPLACING REFINED CARBOHYDRATES WITH LEAN PROTEN WILL NOT ONLY HELP SATITATE YOU, BUT ALSO INCREASE YOUR METABOLISM THROUGH SOMETHING CALLED THE THERMIC EFECT OF FOOD.

6. DECREASE/ELIMINATE SIMPLE CARBS. BY INCREASEING INSULIN LEVELS, THEY PROVIDE A VERY FAVORABLE ENVIRNMENT FOR GAINING FAT.

7. EAT MORE VEGGIES. THEY FILL YOU UP WITHOUT PROVIDING MANY CALOIRES. JUST AVOID THE HIGH-FAT/HIGH CALORIE DRESSINGS.

8. CUT DOWN REST TIME BETWEEN SETS. THIS WILL KEEP YOUR HEART RATE ELEVATED CASUING AN INCREASE IN CALORIE BURNED.

9. ALTERNATE UPPER/LOWER BODY ROUTINES-SUATS/BENCH PRESS, LUNGES/DUMBBELL ROW, ETC. THIS WILL KEEP YOUR HERT RATE ELEVATED THROUGHOUT YOUR ENTIRE WORKOUT MEANING YOU'LL BE SHEDDING FAT FASTER THAN EVER.

10. INCLUDE LOW-FAT WATER -BASED SOUPS AS SNACKS WITH MEALS. THIS WILL HELP FILL YOU UP AND DECREASE THE AMOUNT OF CALOIRES AND FAT YOU CONSUME.

11. DON'T FORGET THE FIBER. THINK OF FIBER LIKE A SPONGE--IT ABSORBS WATER AND MAKES YOU FILL FULL.

12. LIFT HEAVY TO BUILD MUSCLE. PUT DOWN THE PINK -1 POUND DUMBBELLS AND PUSH SOME IRON. DON'T WORRY YOU WON'T GET TOO BULKY.

13. BUMP UP THE INTENSITY--MAKES YOUR WORKOUTS COUNT.

14. CHANGE YOUR ROUTINE--VARIATION IS THE KEY. YOUR BODY GROWS ACCUSTOMED TO WHAT YOU DO. IF YOU DO WHAT YOU'VE ALWAYS DONE, YOU'LL GET WHAT YOU'VE ALWAYS GOTTEN.

15. TAKE A WALK. THE MORE CALORIES YOU CAN BURN EACH DAY, THE BETTER.

16. REPLACE ONE MEAL A DAY WITH A LARGE SALAD AND LEAN PROTEIN.

17. SELF MONITOR. KEEP A JOURNAL. THERE'S NO OTHER WAY TO TRACK WHAT YOU'RE PUTTING IN YOUR MOUTH.

18. PORTION CONTROL. AVOID THE BUFFET LINE AND NEVER SUPER SIZE A THING. INSTEAD, AMKE SURE YOU'RE FOLLOWING WHAT THE NUTRITION LABEL RECOMMENDS FOR A SERVING.

19. SWITCH TO CALOIRE-FREE DRINKLS. ALL CALORIES COUNT, WHETHER THEY'RE LIQUID OR SOLID, SO UNLESS IT'S MILK, OPT FOR TEA OR WATER.

20. DON'T DRINK JUICE; EAT THE WHOLE FRUIT. THE WHOLE FRUIT PROVIDES MORE NUTRIENTS AND FILLS YOU UP MORE.

21. EAT BREAKFAST.

I'm a slow walker but I NEVER walk backwards

Tuesday, June 26, 2007

I have been walking this road since last October 06. This is also my first blog. I have lost a couple pounds, I guese I could have done better but I am an emotional eater. There I said it. I've known this for a while and I have been working on it. In spite of set backs. I've never been the type to give up, I may change routes but I din't givein. I believe the very illnesses that I suffer from have helped to give me perserverance, and patience. I also believe that my relationship with Jesus has helped me so much with emotional eating. I am laying my cares at his feet in every situation, and trail in my life. I can not change the situation but I can change my reaction to what goes on in my life. God is truely my strength. I thank him daily.

    I love the way you headed this blog! I am also an emotional eater and that has been the hardest part for me to deal with, especially when I made the decision to quit smoking as well. No longer could I hade behind the food or the nicotene to deal with how I felt. It was hard to face up to some of the things I had been running from, like my sense of failure, but God helped me through, and he will you too. One of my favorite verses is Phil. 4:13 "I can do all things through Crhist who strengthens me" It reminds me that I can't don this alone, I need to rely on Christ and let him guide and strengthen me if I want to succeed. You CAN do this with God!
