100 DAYS WEIGHT LOSS CHALLENGE

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

DAY 41 -----------------MOTIVATION IS A CHOICE

MOTIVATION IS A CHOICE. YOU CAN NOT SEEM TO GET MOTIVATED.

MOTIVATION AFFECTS EVERYTHING. MOTIVATION BECOMES YOUR PUSH TO GET THINGS DONE.

WHEN MOTIVATION IS STRONG YOU DON'T GIVE IT MUCH THOUGHT. WHEN IT IS GONE THAT CAN SPELL TROUBLE AND YOU MAY NOT KNOW HOW TO GET IT BACK. SO YOU NEED A WAY TO JUMP START YOUR ACTIONS AS WELL AS KEEP YOURSELF MOVING. ONCE YOU GET STARTED. WHERES THE JUMPER CABLES??

CREATE IT YOURSELF.

MOTIVATION IS A CHOICE. IT IS CREATED THUR SELF TALK, THOUGHTS AND ATTITUDE AND IN MY CASE PRAYER AND LEANING ON MY FAITH.

YOUR DRIVE AND ENERGY ORIGINATE INSIDE YOUR HEAD. YOU CAN MOTIVATE WHEN EVER YOU WANT TO.

INVENT NEW PHRASE OH I AM IN OR OH I AM ON IT!!! CREATE A POWER PHRASE THAT SUITS YOU. MAKE IT PERSONAL.

WHEN EXERCISE IS TRYING TO EXIT OR ESCAPE ME.

1. PLACE OUT MY WORKOUT CLOTHES.
2. GET MY WATER BOTTLE.
3. USE THE DVD OR TAPE I WANT TO USE AT THE TIME.
4. GET MY MP3 PLAYER PREPARED.
5. WITH WEIGHTS READY FOR USE
6. MAKE SURE I HAVE MY PENS AND TAB IN HAND TO RECORD WHAT I DONE.

THIS WORKS WELL FOR ME WHEN I AM DRAGGING. FIND OUT WHAT WORKS FOR YOU..........




DAY 42 MAKE IT HAPPEN



DISCOURAGED? DO YOU CARE ABOUT YOUR WEIGHT OF FITNESS LEVEL ETC? FENCE RIDING ABOUT YOUR EXERCISE AND DIET ALWAYS MAKES YOU FALL ON THE WRONG SIDE.

TO GET PAST THIS YOU HAVE TO RAISE THE IMPORTANCE OF YOUR GOAL, AND MAKE IT HAPPEN. IF SOMETHING BECOME REAL IMPORTANT TO YOU GETTING MOTIVATED IS EASY.


HOW DOES YOUR WEIGHT AFFECT YOU? WOW!!

1. ENERGY LEVELS
2. HEALTH
3. QUALITY OF LIFE
4. ENDURANCE.
5. APPEARANCE IF YOU ALLOW.
6. SELF CONFIDENCE IF YOU ALLOW
7. FAMILY/KIDS
8. CAREER

CONVINCE YOURSELF THAT ISSUE ARE SO IMPORTANT THAT YOU MUST SEE CHANGES IN THEM AND MAKE IT HAPPEN.

DAY 38 FOOD AS POWER


MAYBE THE HABIT OF EATING WHEN YOU ARE INSECURE IS A ISSUE? MAYBE SOMETHING ELSE....

SOME FOLKS EAT TO PUMP THEIR COURAGE UP BEFORE A MEETING OR STRESSED AND OR ANXIOUS.

IT MAY SEEM EASY TO LET FOOD FOR FILL A EMOTIONAL NEED?? TO FILL THE HOLES IN YOUR LIFE SO YOU DO NOT HAVE TO THINK ABOUT IT.

IT IS BEST TO LEARN TO GAUGE YOURSELF WHEN YOU ARE TEMPTED TO EAT TO FEEL STRONG AND TACKLE THE REAL ISSUE AND TRY AND FIGURE OUT HOW TO BECOME STRONGER EMOTIONAL WITHOUT USING FOOD.




DAY 39 FLAVORS OR TEXTURES


WHATS YOUR FAVORITE.....SWEETS/DESSERTS, SALTY POTATO CHIPS (OH MY) CRUNCHY COOKIES AND GOOEY CARAMEL ROLL. OR IS IT PUNGENT FLAVORS LIKE BLUE CHEESE AND CHILI. OR STILL THE TUG OF A SPICY BOWL OF GREEN CHILI OR BURRITOS.

OFTEN IT IS NOT ABOUT THE FLAVOR BUT THE TEXTURE OF FOOD KEEPS YOU WANTING MORE.??....

IF YOU CAN'T STOP EATING A FAVORITE FOOD YOU MAY LOVE HOT IT FEELS IN YOUR MOUTH.

FLAVOR MAY NOT MATTER.

THINK ABOUT WHICH TEXTURES OR TYPES OF FOOD YOU ENJOY, CHEWY, CRUNCHY, SOFT AND SMOOTH. WHAT ABOUT TINGLY OR SLIPPERY.

CONSIDER HOW THE FOOD FEELS IN YOUR MOUTH.

EMOTIONS BEHIND THE TEXTURE.

IF YOU FEEL YOU EAT FOR TEXTURES.... IDENTIFY WHAT YOU MIGHT NED EMOTIONALLY. FIND A SOLUTION IN ANOTHER WAY INSTEAD OF USING FOOD.

REMEMBER THE PURPOSE OF FOOD IS TO FUEL YOUR BODY AND APPRECIATE FLAVORS.



DAY 40 HAVING AN EATING EXPERIENCE AT TIMES.


THE JOY OF EATING ISN'T ABOUT FOOD AS MUCH AS IT IS ABOUT FAMILY OR GET TOGETHER(S) OR OTHER GATHERINGS. ITS ABOUT HAVING FUN EATING WITH OTHERS.

BY SEPARATING THE AMOUNT AND TASTES OF FOOD FROM THE SITUATION YOU EAT THEM IN YOU CAN LEARN TO MANAGE THE AMOUNTS YOU EAT DIFFERENTLY.

NOTICING THE TASTES

SOMETIMES YOU DON'T WANT FOOD AT ALL. LOOK FOR OTHER WAYS TO USE FOOD OR HAVE AN EATING EXPERIENCE. SHOP FOR FOOD, COOK IT AND ARRANGE IT. WHEN COOKING MAKE AN EFFORT TO APPRECIATE THE TASTES OF NEW SPIES, GAUGE FLAVORS SEASONINGS AND TEMPERATURES OF FOODS..

IN THE SOCIAL ASPECT OF EATING.

CREATE YOUR OWN EATING EXPERIENCES. CREATE AN ATMOSPHERE THAT MEETS YOUR NEED WITHOUT DEPENDING ON FOOD TO MAKE THE EVENT ENJOYABLE. LET FOOD BECOME THE MINOR PART OF THE EVENT. MAYBE HAVE A SOUP AND SALAD. IF EATING OUT IN A RESTAURANT SELECT ONE BASED ON THE EXPERIENCE YOU WANT TO HAVE. AT HOME FOR A ROMANTIC DINNER USE CANDLE LIGHTS, PRETTY TABLE CLOTH, YOUR SPECIAL SILVER WEAR AND PLACE SETTINGS. ADD MUSIC.

THIS SOUNDS LIKE A WINNER BUT I AM NOT SURE HOW TO APPLY THIS AT AUNT TO FUFU HOUSE. emoticon AUNT FUFU WILL EXPECT YOU TO EAT?? PERHAPS EAT A LITTLE AND CHOOSE YOUR DISHES WISELY.

DAY 33 FULLNESS SCALE LISTENING TO YOUR BODY.

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

LEARNING TO RECOGNIZE HUNGRY.

RECOGNIZING WHEN YOU ARE FULL OR YOU HAVE ATE ENOUGH.

YOU HAVE TO LISTEN TO YOUR STOMACH INSTEAD OF LOOKING AT YOUR PLATE. WHEN EATING FOOD YOUR STOMACH MUSCLES BEGIN TO EXPAND TO ACCOMMODATE FOOD. IF YOU PAY SPECIAL ATTENTION TO HOW YOUR BELLY AREA FEELS YOU WILL DETERMINE THE AMOUNT OF FOOD YOU BODY REQUIRES.


THE THREE POINT FULLNESS SCALE (RECOGNIZING FULLNESS)


0 NEUTRAL, NOT HUNGER, NOT FULL.
+ 1 SATISFIED, COMFORTABLE, JUST RIGHT.
+ 2 TOO FULL, A LITTLE UNCOMFORTABLE .
+ 3 STUFFED MISERABLE.


THE RATING 0 IS THE SENSATION YOU FEEL AFTER A MEAL OR WHEN YOU ARE NOT THINKING ABOUT FOOD.

IF YOU USE THIS TECHNIQUE YOU WILL BEGIN TO NOTICE CHANGES WITH YOUR STOMACH LIKE SLIGHT PRESSURE. AFTER A FEW PRACTICE RUNS YOU WILL BE ABLE TO REACH A LEVEL WHERE YOU ARE SATISFIED AND YOUR STOMACH FEELS COMFORTABLE OF JUST RIGHT.

IF YOU CHOOSE TO KEEP EATING AFTER THIS LEVEL YOU BECOME PUFFY AND MISERABLE.

STOP EATING AT THE PLUS + 1 HUNGER SCALE, REGARDLESS OF WHATS LEFT ON YOUR PLATE. emoticon emoticon emoticon NO THANKS I'VE HAD ENOUGH.

    I like this idea. I had not seen the scale and I think it might be really useful. Here, I thought I KNEW everything!! Seriously though, I have more than half a century of dieting and trying to lose weight and never saw this before. Thanks for sharing it.
