It's February!

Sunday, February 02, 2014

I love when a new month starts and there is room for new beginnings! My scale ended January up 2 pounds so February I refocus ! Yesterday I went to the health food store and got a few things--one which I should not have purchased!!!!! Gluten free macaroons!!! Yes they were yummy but my head is splitting this morning!! Trust me--when you give up sugar never go back because it does hurt!!!

It is warmer here in Florida today and I will be changing the hoses on my pool filter. I went to Lowes yesterday and found some crappy pool filter hoses that would crack like the ones I have--but checked with the plumbing dept and got some heavy duty hose to see if I can make it work. It was curled up on a reel and is very stiff--so I am trying to stretch it out in the house before I try to uncurl it outside--lol! If the sun is bright I will put it out to warm up too! I hope I have enough strength to do this!

I will be starting my Sunday with my usual bacon and egg brunch--seems to work for me! I am going back to look at my meals to make sure I stick to the way that it was working well!

New month--new beginnings--I can do this!! Also going to crack out my '50 ways to soothe yourself without food' and read a few chapters to get me going right again!

    Oh, I am sitting here looking out at a dreary sky. No rain but we do need it. And there you are in nice warm sunshine. I have four layers of clothes on but am still chillyl
How wonderful to have a pool. Do you exercise in it?
Have a great day and think of us who are not blessed with nice warm weather, I am thankful I am not in the snowy mountains though.

I appreciate the encouragement ladies! I am wondering today if I was just testing myself last weekend??? Maybe it WAS a good thing to get my mindset back on track!

I do LOVE seeing the scale go down!



January is almost over!

Wednesday, January 29, 2014

I made a mistake last weekend and made myself some tapioca pudding(with sugar) and boy did I have a headache yesterday--nothing would take it away! It was not a bad one but a constant dull ache that I am sure I could have taken away with a bit of sugar to feed the addiction! So here I am Wednesday 1/29 with another lesson learned!
I seriously must stick to my plan with Paleo and organics.

This is the year I will continue until I make this happen! Just because I lost 10 pounds does ot mean I reward myself with tapioca! Don't get me wrong I calculated all the ingredients and it added up to 1420--making 10 servings at 142 calories. Sounds very practical right? But my scale went up somewhere around 2 pounds in 2 days--yes I did eat all of the tapioca in 2 days--sugar does that to me! Old habits crept up on me!

Well that is my demise--back to reading my book and getting more knowledge on my addiction and how to eliminate it!

I will do this in 2014--it is my year and I will get it done!

    Hi, being a Swede, I have always loved sweet things. There was always something full of sugar available. But being young I did manage to stay at a decent weight. Now my daughter and I are eating certain foods that normally do not cause problems. After a bit we will slowly add a food that we love (not sweet) and see if it affects us. We will not use artificial sweeteners but do buy natural substitutes, like Slimtevia, honey, real maple syrup and Xyla (sparingly). Even those you have to be careful since they may whet your appetite for something that is made with that culprit SUGAR.
Your mistake caused you to know you had to get back on track.
I was happy to see you here, it has been a long time since we wrote each other. There is not enough time to get to all the friends we make here!! Sending hugs and love, Betty emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Having 10 servings of anything tempting in the house at one time is risky. Perhaps you could but single serve of small packages in the store, that way you limit the damage that can be done. Anyway it's just 1 slip for a whole month - that's great. Sugar is sneaky and it turns up in the most unlikely places. Keep up the good work!

End of the year blues!

Monday, December 30, 2013

I keep a journal for my daily weight loss etc.... I set it up this time last year for a whole year. I turned the page this morning only to see the 12th end of month goal and happy face! Sadly I have gone another year without achieving what i set out to do! emoticon

Saturday i again set up my journal for almost all of 2014! I will not be sad at the end of 2014! If I only loose 1 pound a week I can loose 52 pounds this year alone--I need to get out of this obese category!! emoticon

This year I lost my Sasha :( She died peacefully in her sleep and was almost 8 years old. Since then Taz and I have bonded more. She is a handful as her back end is not working and she scoots around happily! I hooked up a kid trolley to my trike and have been taking her for rides a few times a week.

I am working on not being a stress eater--but i Succumb at times to it!

Time to get me from emoticon to emoticon ! I know I can do it!

    Keeping a journal can be bittersweet. When I re-read the ones I've kept over the years, with all the unmet goals, it sounds like a broken record and it can be discouraging. I try to think about all the good things I've accomplished during the year which did not get written down. As far as weight loss goes, I've usually lost some just not as much as I had hoped. One lb may not seem like much but it is still 3,500 calories burned up and it's much better than having gained 5 or 10 lbs.. This new year is a fresh start for all of us and anticipating dissappointment at the end of a year that has just begun will make it that much more difficult. Keep that "can do" attitude and take it day by day and you may be pleasantly surprised by the the end of 2014.

Sorry to hear about Sasha. I'm sure she's still cheering you on from "doggie heaven"

    I am going to follow you lead and for once make out a schedule for some kind of exercise and goal setting. Being in the power chair will be an extra challenge but this year I will do what ever I can manage. Thanks for the push I needed to get busy. I have not weighed in so long I hate to think what is going to show. I can't stand still so the poor scale numbers jump all over the place. My daughter watches and takes the # that shows up more often. When I was in the assisted living place they had a chair scale. Though it was not the easiest to get into I got a more accurate reading. I have a nice doctor type scale but there is no way I can stand still long enough to set the weight.
I will be checking with you and I'll confess to you when I weigh. It's nice we have a lot of friends here on Spark to encourage us. Sending love and hugs, Betty emoticon emoticon

    A new year and a fresh start! Instead of just focusing on the lb a week, focus on how you are going to do it. Are you going to log your food daily and stay in your calorie range? Are you going wo work out/ride your trike a certain number of days a week? Are you going to increase your fruits and veggies? Increase your water intake? Make sure you have a plan on how to lose that lb a week and you will get there!

Thursday, August 30, 2007

And during all this I rescued a pug baby of 4 months old. Here is her picture her name is TAZ, she is good company for Sasha and I. So how do I get myself out of this funk and back on track--it's a puzzle to me. maybe after the funeral is done. who knows. I try to get moving with the new baby --nothing is quite working????

Here is to better months!!!

Say a prayer!

    Thanks Mary--she has been a good girl and has learned many things really fast! I am not sure if its from sash(my 3 yr old) or that she is just smart--lol I trained my first(sasha)to go in a doggy tray and never had to take her outside to go potty. Taz will piddle in the tray but it is vital she go outside to poop--ha ha ha!

The both have very different temperaments and lovey times. Sasha sleeps in the bed with me and Taz has to go in a crate as she wakes me up every 2 or so hours walking over me and kissing my face!

better go --thunder brewing here in sunny florida!
