HABITS

Thursday, October 30, 2008

In order for us to make or break a habit we must consciously be aware of what we are doing until we change permanently; therefore, we no longer have to think, we just do. If we donít learn how to cue ourselves to change than we fall prey to living the same way we always have.

WOW I HAVE A WAYS TO GO ON MY EMOTIONAL EATING BATTLE I SEEN THIS QUOTE ON THE DAILY SPARK BOARDS. THIS IS SO TRUE. STILL WORKING TOWARDS THIS. NEVER STOP!!!!!!!!
THURSDAY WAS A TRUE STRUGGLE. NOTHING THAT IS WORTH THE FIGHT COMES EASY!! emoticon. GIRL YOU GONNA MAKE IT!!!

    GIRL - YOU *ARE* GOING TO MAKE IT!

you know how they say it takes 21 days to establish a habit? i don't believe them! I think it takes two years before a new habit becomes 2nd nature. Until then I really have to stay focused on keeping it -- aaaghghg!!!!

great blog!

Trying a new fruit....

Friday, October 24, 2008


MUSCADINES ARE A VERSION OF A GRAPE THAT GROWS WILD IN THE SOUTH. GRAPES ARE VERY BENEFICIAL THEY CAN PREVENT CANCER. ACCORDING TO NCI DR. JEFFERY GREEN A SCIENTIST SAYS THAT THE SKIN OF THE MUSCADINE CAN INHIBIT CANCER CELL GROWTH OF THE PROSTATE, ALSO THEY HAVE POTENTIAL OF PREVENT CANCERS IN THE BREAST AND OTHER VARIETIES OF CANCER. IF MADE OF WINE THEY AID IN SLEEP, REDUCES CHOLESTEROL, AND HELPS WITH IRON DEFICIENCY.

I SAID IN MY BECK TEAM THAT I WANTED TO TRY NEW FRUITS AND VEGGIES AND IN COMES MY HD WITH A GIANT BAG OF MUSCADINES AND THEY TASTE GOOD. THEY ARE BENEFICIAL. GREAT!! IT FAR BETTER THAN THE SO CALLED TREATS HE USUALLY BRING IN. emoticon.

I ALSO HAD TO RESEARCH HOW MANY CALORIES THEY HAVE. I CONSIDER THEM THE DOWN SOUTH'S (AS THEY CALL IT THE COUNTRY)) HEALING FOOD AND THEY WERE NOT LISTED HERE.

Counting to a T!!!

Thursday, October 23, 2008


I had to go redo some of my calculations for my food intake. You would be surprised how many variations there are for tomatoes and the calories they contain. Like Cherry tomatoes, Italian tomatoes. It depends on the size of the veggie.

Well I was on a wild goose chase this morning trying to see how many calories their were in a half of a cup of tomatoes. emoticon. Weighing and measuring everything now. The website that help was called fat secret.com

I have discovered that I was over and under measuring nuts also. I thought you were supposed to go by the packaging but according to my diabetic exchange list I was wrong on measuring pasta and nuts and cherry tomatoes and probably other items. I will keep working at this!!!!

It was good that I caught those mistakes so I can go forward.

Me and my food scale and measuring spoons including cups are becoming best friends. It is necessary for me to measure everything if I want to lose weight and control my diabetes. emoticon

    Yep, a kitchen scale, measuring cups AND measuring spoons are essential items! That was ACTUALLY in either stage 1 or 2 if you kept up with the prompts that SparkPeople mailed out.
I measure everything STILL. I don't eyeball as I know my eyes are bigger than the measuring devices!!! LOL

Oh, wanted to comment on the pic you posted with the blog --- LOVE the rainbow of colors!

Finally Finished Book (BUT I INTEND ON REVISITING IT OFTEN)

Sunday, October 19, 2008


I just finished my Beck Diet Book. I've learned a lot but I intend on revisiting the book often. I am no where near conquering Mr. EE but I will give him the fight of a life time.

I am very happy that this is the first time I have finished reading a diet book per se but this book is different. It actually tackles many food issues including emotional eating. I am very pleased with the book. The only problem I had was reading those Beck cards daily. But I will read them as needed cards daily or every other day. If I feel that I need to read them more I will.

    GOOD JOB!
So how about posting the cards on your bathroom mirror and changing them out every couple of days, or it doesn't work like that???
