Starting over...again...

Wednesday, June 30, 2010

Wow, it's been a while since I've done this, but since I am rapidly approaching my beginning weight, I need to do something to put on the brakes. So, I started logging my food again. I tried just writing it down, but I get lazy and I do a better job of it on here. While 'people watching' at the motorcycle rally last week, I was pointing out the overweight (I just can't use that word 'obese') people to my husband, and I would tell him which ones were 'sitters', by the way their weight accumulated at the top of their hips. Been noticing that on myself since I went on summer vacation a few weeks ago. The job is active enough to keep that at bay, but now that I'm off for the summer, I seem to be sitting(and gaining) a lot more, in fact, most of the time. If it weren't for living in the upstairs of my house, I probably wouldn't get much exercise at all. Back to logging my exercise, too. So, here I go again, starting over. I was feeling so depressed last night, God showed me that today is a new day, a new beginning, what happened yesterday is over and done. Forget it. So I got up this morning and started over...Thank you, Lord, for another new day...

    I was "off track" for a while and now I'm back on. Set new mini goals for yourself, such as time for exercise, and as you reach those goals, add new ones. I know you can do it again.

    Vicky, I'm right there with you. Tracking is still not routine for me tho' I do my best to write it down but cannot seem to get it on the tracker. Yes, yesterday is passed & today is a new day. God is so gracious with us when we need to regroup and (unfortunately) begin again. And the Good News is that we can "begin again." You have been awesome support to all of us and I hope I can return the favor.

Many emoticon and you win emoticon

My Summer Vacation...

Tuesday, August 04, 2009

My summer has not been what I had hoped, but my dad is recovering nicely. My friends had a wonderful time at the rally we had to miss. My daughter is learning to be the strong wonderful daughter of God I knew she always was. And my husband is back to being healthy and strong again so I really have nothing to complain about. It's time for me to go back to work and this last year off has had its rough spots. I didn't know how to handle not working 40 hours a week and it threw me into a tailspin so I regained 30 pounds. I finally got a grip and lost 10 of that. In a few weeks I will start a new job, one I have no experience in whatsoever. Yeah, I'm nervous about that but I can do all things through Christ. I'm sure there'll be more trials ahead but if I can just remember to put on my armor, I should be just fine...

bad food day...

Sunday, May 31, 2009

Today was not a good "food" day. I had bread, bread and bread. Then for a snack I had.....BREAD!!! Tomorrow, my affair with bread is over. I will be back on track and the only bread in this house will be Bob's. I can't believe how sluggish I feel when I eat so much bread. And I only eat whole grain.

So, it's back to the protein. I have to go to the grocery store after we walk tomorrow. County Market has this thing where you get 5 packages of meat for $19.99 and every package is priced over 5 dollars or more, so it's a bargain but the kind of meat varies. This week I'm hoping for some chicken breasts and pork chops, maybe even a steak. Now, if I just knew how to cook...

Seriously, I know how to cook, I'm just out of practice. You cannot come from a family of eight, being the eldest daughter, and not know how to cook. I've just gotten so used to opening a package or slamming a sandwich together, I may have forgotten what real cooking is...

    I also had a horrible food day, started with making pancakes for my daughter's sleepover and of course had to have one and the day went downhill from there. Lets just say I took the group of kids to the movies and I was not prepared mentally to say no. Oh Well there is always tomorrow!!! Best of luck to you getting back on track!!

I'm trying...

Monday, March 09, 2009

You know how sometimes you say you're trying but you aren't really? Well, I am now! This last week I was doing really well, focusing on what I was eating, when I was eating and getting more exercise than I have since I left VF. But guess what? The scales haven't moved... So I'll do it again this week. I have faith that God knows the desires of my heart and one of them is to succeed in getting rid of this excess baggage that I've allowed myself to regain. If I am faithful to do my part, God will be faithful to give me the victory.

No Scales...

Thursday, February 19, 2009

So I gave up the scales last week and I think I'm doing fine without them. I don't think I've even been tempted once to get on them. That's pretty good for someone who hopped on them several times a day. I just don't care anymore about numbers. As long as my jeans fit. I would be very angry if I had to go up another size!!! Honestly, today I woke up feeling a little thinner but I didn't check to see so, on with my day. I think I'm more aware of what I'm putting in my mouth and it hasn't all been good, but I am aware. I went too many years mindlessly eating. I won't go back to that...

    It soooo easy to become obsessed with the scales. I only weigh like every 10 days, and I try to be very consistent...early morning before I eat in my b-day suit. Also, I know I didn't weigh last week when I was sick because I didn't think it would be a true reflection. I think you are right. You can tell by your clothing and how you feel. It's hard to develop new life habits, but you are on the right track! Keep it up! emoticon emoticon
