Day 2 OK!

Sunday, July 01, 2012

Stayed within my calorie range today, barely! Not too bad for day two of the family reunion! Besides some fabulous food, we also enjoyed free chairlift rides to the top of Schweitzer today. What an awesome view and overall experience!

The Family Focused on Food!

Saturday, June 30, 2012

We just started a five-day family reunion feast. I love my food-centric family! Let's see how I do with all of those tasty temptations! :)


7 Days

Thursday, June 28, 2012

It's been seven days since my last blog. Yikes! I was in the middle of a maelstrom. I had friends, family, and hired help trying to finish up a construction project by last Sunday. I was gimping around with a sore knee feeling guilty because I couldn't help more. Getting into the house I'm trying to buy was on the line, so I was pretty darn stressed. We meet the deadline, are filing for an extension, and hope to close in three weeks! Anyway, I learned a lot through the least two weeks, but I'll just fill you in on the effects of the stress on my health goals.

I've been eating out, making poor food choices, overeating, not working out, and even indulging in a huge binge on Sunday night. The results have been reflected on my scale the last two weeks. Bummer! The good news it's I haven't wasted any time beating myself up. Rather, I've recognized that I need some backup strategies. I've been walking to relieve stress; what can I do when my knees hurt? What healthy snacks can I keep around to avoid eating junk out I'd convenience?

    You may not realize it but just not beating yourself up over an indulgence is a very big step.

Guilt is the enemy of weight loss. Good work. emoticon

Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen . . .

Wednesday, June 20, 2012

In the last week: two illnesses, two root canals, one shattered sliding-glass door, a flat tire, reroofing during a rainstorm, but only two days of going over my calorie goal!

    WOW! *sigh*

Well, emoticon for not overeating - but GEEZ!

I loathe root canals, but then again, I don't know anyone who likes them very much... emoticon

Here's hoping for a better end of the week and weekend!
