Yes I have been here for way too many years not to have gotten to goal, or to even done better. I am the proverbial yo - yo, back and forth. Well I am sick of this and have promised myself that I will start another 100 day challenge. This has worked for me in the walking, however I love to walk. It has been a challenge though, because my knee has gotten worse and along with that my back. Many days hubby has said how many steps have you got, come on you can go that 200 more etc. Great to say that the majority of days are over 11, 000 although some are in 10,000. But my goal was 10,000 steps for 100 days and as of July 21 I will have done it. I am continuing on with it and will until my knee surgery which will of course stop that challenge for while. lol
I have been thinking of what I can do, going over different things in my head and negating them all as too hard, too much work, I can't - I DON'T WANT to is more like it.
Day before yesterday I sat and talked to hubby before he went for his dr apt. Didn't help much on him exercising more, but he was amendable to less sugar for him and in the house. We both agree on healthy eating but he isn't able to eat raw veggies and limited fruit so hard to get his amounts in. Whatever that is no reason to stop me. It hasn't in the past and won't again now. But having hubby on board with some of it is certainly helpful.
I am going to go back to NO S plan along with more veggies. He has agreed no more jubes, no more bought cookies etc. I will make this one recipe of very healthy cookies when and if we want them on Saturdays only. I will put 2 out for sat for each and 2 for Sunday for each. Rest I will freeze. I have a better plan and am willing. So starting today. so far so good, ate well and charted food.
I can do it for 100 days, and know that it is viable for life. This doesn't restrict any food, just when you eat it. And often people say I will have that sweet tomorrow, it will still be there and are able to keep postponing it. I don't do well with moderation and having it around. Perhaps some day I will but not now. I swear my switch for stop eating is broken. lol so easy way just don't start except on S days.
I am truly going to do this, I said I would walk for 100 days and I am saying I will do this. I have plans, teams and my journal all in place. I have all of you guys here that help me. If anyone wants to join me on their own 100 day choice please do...
And at the end of the 100 days........ October 17th. Ekkk fall is coming. I love fall but we are just starting summer! I am going to be able to say...

UP late it is nearly midnight, but had taped well pvrd whatever, extreme wt. loss and it was the show of the lady who's hubby had commited suicide from PSTD. What a great show, so emotional and motivational. I figure if she can do it and have all that baggage and stress I can do it. Yes hubby suffers some from PSTD but also depression and anxiety and yes I get very frustrated, but while watching this ( he was listening to music on the computer) he took his headphones off when he saw what it was about and we got talking. Makes me feel better about some stuff, even though I still know it is going to stress me out.... I am so wanting stuff done. Anyway........... lol had a good chat, and a good show. AND
The vet called said wanted to call before the weekend, Allies blood work, is right in the middle of normal so all is where he wanted it. Keep doing what you are doing and then in bit we have to recheck to make sure it is all good. So whew...... for now. She still doesn't like long walks and she does act more skittish but we will work with that.
Anyway it is 10 to midnight and I need to get to bed. My back was probably 70 % better till about 5 pm then got a bit worse but nothing like yesterday. The storm hasn't come yet but is humid and supposed to rain, we are to get more wind than rain. Hope all is fine when we get up.
Okay off to bed and hopefully a still motivated feeling and not too much pain in the morning. NIGHT all HUGS

I am so not in a place to change today or feeling like I really care. Right now so blah, and tired of hubby not getting anything done and me hurting so bad........ I just think I will go to bed. I have my 10,000 + steps and yea allie should go out but I am hurting so bad, and mur can take her. I walked her at 6 some which is early but just feel like crying. my back hurts so bad. BUT I know 2 people that are full of cancer and both have young kids so I have nothing to cry about. Pull up my socks and carry on.
I think I will go have a bath, it is humid wating to see if hurricane is coming or just the storm Pretty sure that is part of the pain and the blahs. Know part is procrastinator hubby. Really tired of it would be that I would do some but can't and NO don't suggest a handyman as we have no funds and he would be so angry that it isn't worth it.
Just venting it will get done and all will be fine, just not a good day.
Think I will just go ..............

Well I posted a while back I was going to do the no sugar and such and it was right before all my doggie stress. Granted life happens and that is just an excuse but it is what I know.
I have done so well with my 100 days challenge of walking over 10,000 steps a day, even on the hard painful days. I know that for me it is an "easier" challenge cos I love to walk. But on days where I am nearly walking bent over cos of my back, or limping cos of my knee and just got over my 10,000. I still didn't give up. I am nearing the end of the 100 days, ( june 21) and know I will continue that one.
So as I said while back been thinking on one. My issue is sugar but finding even more is portion control and always feeling hungry. I can eat the same breakfast as hubby, and he will say I am so stuffed, and I will be really I am hungry. I have allowed myself to eat more just to see and I usually eat 2 more toast. I can't fathom how I can eat 2 eggs, 4 slices of bacon, hash browns, 2 toast with butter and jam and still be hungry.... HOW.
So really thinking do I go all out and say NO Sugar or just try to do portion control and healthy eating. So that if I decide I want a tea and A cookie I allow it. ( they are only homemade ones with barely no sugar that I make, but are still a cookie). Reason I chose that as an example was years ago like 34 years ago, I went to the dietican after I had my dd cos I was soooooo heavy lol at 167 lbs! ( today I am back up to 194!) she said what do you really like. I said cookies. But then was to rest and stop after the kids were in bed with a cup of tea and cookies. She said okay do that but only allow one. and it worked back then.
Obviously with limited success as I am bigger than I have been in a year right now. but gained 10 lbs in past 2 wks so not sure if it is water and salt or what.
Do I do my portion control and eat semi healthy leading to better. or do I do NO S again. When I combined NO S and the naturopaths diet I did well. NO S - so sweets , no sugar, no seconds except on days with S. so be the weekends and special days which I called Canada day so hence starting today.
Have to get my mind around this and get the mindset going. but also read a very interesting article from another sparker that she wants others to share....
Per Author....My intention for this work is that it is widely shared with as many people as possible. Please feel free to reprint, publish, and share any part of this e-book with anyone who you think might benefit from it.
So today is not just making my mind, I will be doing the best I can to think before I eat, know I want health, and enjoy my day... Sunny, windy and possible hurricane headed our way so going to have a great day and be healthy.
