Determined to Overcome Craving and Impulsive Eating.

Monday, July 06, 2009

I'm sorry this is not a very motivational blog . It will be better described as a venting blog. I work so hard all day to stay focused and do all the right things and than out of no where boom the craving begin.

I work very hard to manage stress and keep a positive view as much as humanly possible , However, peri menopause seems to be getting in my way more often than I'd like.

Ok I am regrouping and one of my resolves is to keep trigger foods out of the house. My husband is an ice cream lover and so am I. I hear it calling my name when it's in the house.

Of course I am great at making excuses to by a few special things to keep on hand like dark chocolate covered almonds and a few organic cookies for the grand kids ( YEAH RIGHT) for granny I mean after all there's nothing bad in them . (OH BOY) Who am I kidding right.

I am determined to do this and hit my goal in January of 2010 nothing is going to stop me any tips and advice scolding whatever Ill take it gladly if it will help. I am just not happy where I am and I intend to finish strong.

One motivation is I was out walking with my two grand daughters last year 11 and 7 years old. I was trying to tell them to pace themselves, because it was a long walk and of course they did not.
They kept running ahead and in the last mile I was a way in front and I heard one say how did that old lady get ahead of us . Needless to say I walked a little faster . This year they were both out in front and I was struggling to stay with them .

Nope not goanna continue. I lost 110 lbs 12 years ago and have kept it off for 11 years now 30lbs back no no no. The lbs stop here . Thanks for listening and promise to try and be more inspirational next time. I apologize blog a little scattered but I had to put it somewhere.

    Your husband sounds like mine, I swear that he is trying to keep me fat. LOL. Have you looked at Spark recipes? There are some Recipes for desserts under 100 calories. Maybe this will satisfy your sweet tooth with out breaking the bank. I'm going to try the Orange Dreamcycles, that way when he is having his ice cream, I can have a treat without feeling guilty.
