I am checking in with myself to see how I am doing regarding my commitment to get healthy. Over all this has been a good week so far. Out of the last 3 days I have eaten healthy two of those days. Yesterday I was out of control, but the day was really stressful. I need to find a way to deal with the stress without eating. It is so easy to fall back into my old habits. I have decided I will go for walk or take a few minutes to meditate to help me maintain my focus. I have been exercising more than the 10 minutes a day that I had committed to. I am doing it.


The first Day of the rest of my Life

Tuesday, January 03, 2012

We have all heard the saying that "this is the first day of the rest of your life" and it truely is. I am going to challenge myself to have a perfect day. By perfect I mean exercising, planning my meals and eating what I planned. This is the first step to achieving a healthy life style and body. I can do this...I am doing this. I have already exercised this morning and have planned my food for the day. Now all I need to do is stick to my plan and the results will follow.


I'm not starting over

Monday, March 21, 2011

It appears that I have a cycle that I repeat often, of starting over with my weight loss program. Today is Monday and that is the day I usually start over, but not today. Today I am going to pick myself up and continue onward to reach my goal. Oh I've been side tracked and have totally sabotaged any chance for weight loss. Ihave given much thought this past week to what keeps me from losing weight and achieving my goals. The list is really not too long, and the following items keep me off track;
Eating sweets and foods with a lot of sugars
Not planning my meals
Letting myself get too hungry
Not having healthy foods in the house that I can prepare quickly
Giving up if I have had a bad eating day

I've learned a lot about what not to do So, I am not going to start over, I am going learn from my mistakes and will pick myself up and keep on going. I;m going to work hard not to make the same mistakes. To help me with this process I am going to keep a journal. I plan to write in it daily and I will continue forward toward my goals.


Self Sabotage

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

This is part of an email I sent to my sparkbuddy this morning.

After having 10 good eating days in a row, I had a terrible day yesterday. I ate everything I shouldn't eat. I left the office to purchase a meal that was full of fat. I snacked all day and in the evening I made poor food choices. I had a late meeting and didn't get home until 7:30 pm. I walked in the door and the kitchen had not been cleaned up by my family after they ate dinner. I was really angry. I jumped in and with a martyr's attitude started doing the dishes. While I was cleaning up the kitchen it hit me. I was not really angry about the kitchen, I was angry about the choices I had made. No one force feed me, it had not been a particularly stressful day and I did have healthy food that I brought to the office to eat. I had that here I go again, out of control again feeling. In the past when I totally lose control like this it just sets me up for a continuation of the same out of control eating. I prayed, please God, help me get myself under control. It also makes me ask myself why I made the choices I made. I really don't know except it was an easy thing to do and I wanted to eat what I wanted. (Do I need counseling?) I spent the rest of the evening regrouping my strategy. I want to lose weight, I want to be healthy and I need to fight for it. I need to fight for my life. I will not fail, because I will never give up. I got up this morning and worked out for an hour. I have meals and snacks planned for today and they are going to help me achieve my goal. They are my secret weapon against obesity.

Working out in the cold

Wednesday, March 03, 2010

Okay I'll admit it. I have a hard time working out in the cold. I have bundled up and braved the temperature to go for a walk.
The whole time I kept thinking, I am cold and miserable and this is not fun. Afterwards my teeth ached. I know I sound like a wimp, but walking in the cold is not for me.
