Not a bad day

Wednesday, April 13, 2011

Yesterday was pretty good considering how busy of a day it was at work. Very few choices to be had that can be called good ones I'm afraid. But, I came in just a little over total calories so I'm calling that good! Today will be better!

Today I am going to:

1. Stay in my total calorie range for the day
2. Drink 10 glasses of water
3. Get some exercise after work
4. Have a great day!

    You are worth the effort, the effort will pay off in you feeling better for a long time to come. You are worth it.

Avoiding the scale...

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

You know things are bad when you are avoiding the scale because you know the news won't be good. For months now, really if I'm honest, since last Fall I have been flailing, telling myself lies and generally losing my way. For the past month I've been avoiding the scale all the while lamenting that my smaller clothes are getting uncomfortable.

Today I decided I was done with this insanity and I got on the scale. It wasn't pretty. I've gained back 20 of the 50 lbs I lost last year. Why oh why do I do this to myself? I've been down this road before and I don't like it. So today I am stepping off this road onto a murky path in the woods, in search of the road I was on last year. I liked that one better.

So to my dear spark friends, I am back, hat in hand, I know you're here for me and I thank you in advance...

    I lost my way around Thanksgiving last year and it really got bad around New Years'. But, you absolutely CAN get going in the right direction again. You gained 20 pounds...yes, but you can lose 30,40,50. You absolutely can do it, if you want it enough and just keep working to make it happen.

One day at a time, one choice at a time. Don't focus on past mistakes, except as a reminder to keep going in the right direction this time. Celebrate all of your successes.

Monday, January 03, 2011

OK, so two days down and going strong! I'm not feeling that great this morning but just ate a little breakfast and hoping that will help. I have the day off, have some errands to run and planning on going swimming at the lunchtime lap swim. I haven't swam in a LONG time, hopefully I won't drown!

Here are my goals for today:

Food - 1300 calories
Water - 80+ ounces
Exercise - 30 minutes swimming

Have a great day all!

    Great goals! I love the way you put that: "catching our first baby." What a beautiful thing, to be there for the first moments of a life. Happy New Year!
