Long day

Saturday, April 05, 2014

Long Day...

That about sums it up.....

We weren't really busy at the restaurant, never had a long line, but we always had people. So we weren't busy enough to be busy but we weren't slow enough to relax...i hate those weird days...

I tried my hardest to eat failed...I'm bouncing between about 2-3 pounds...and I'm probably not going to make it to my goal for when I see my just bums me out that I can't do it...

On Februrary 1st, I re-gave up Mountain Dew. I drank it all my life. About a year and a half ago, I made the slow transition of mountain dew, to diet mountain dew, to pepsi, to diet pepsi, and then to caffiene free diet pepsi. Ultimately I gave it up. But a few months later, things got stressful and hectic, and the caffiene free diet pepsi slowly crept back in. I did give it up again but again, a few months later, I started sipping family's mountain dew (its really hard to live in a house with constant pops opened and left unattended) Eventually, the sleep issues and the headaches, oh the headaches, came back. A lot of going back on it had to do with stress and the sweet call of 24 years of mountain dew in my life. I'm proud to say that I haven't had a sip since the end of January! I refuse to go back to it. No matter how bad the headache is, and even though i know a sip is going to cure it, I won't....because I"m not strong enough to just stop at a sip....and a sip always leads to a gulp, then a cup, then a can, then a bottle, and then more than one.....

I just wish I could do that with the junk food in my life....the donuts (oi vey, I've had too many of them), the bread (I've never liked toast before and its all I want), the pancakes (duh, from the restaurant).....I just wish I had the will power to say no to it and to not go near it....someday right? at least someday it'll get a little easier in saying no....

    You're doing such a great job in exercising willpower and buiding habits. Fantastic! And I know how hard it is to work in a restaurant where you're constantly confronted with temptation. You are fantastic!

Hope your Sunday and your week are good!

    Great job giving up mountain dew! I'm so proud of your efforts. I agree that family having it at home certainly makes a difference. Sometimes when I'm at my parents' house, I have a pop every day because it's available and will restock itself. At my house, I don't care to pay for it, so I only have it as a treat if I go out for pizza or something.

As for the bread, donuts, and pancakes, you could try limiting them rather than giving them up all together. I like to have pancake Saturdays. It gives me a chance to get my fill, but I don't need them all the time (or every Saturday). This helps me stay accountable.

You're doing a great job! emoticon

    You are doing very well. I was looking at your Sparkpage pictures and the change is remarkable and noticeable. Starting with the soda again could jeopardize that and your health in the long run.

I wish you luck staying away from soft drinks. It will pay off for sure.

Keep sparking!! You can do this emoticon

Whoops...yea, we'll go with whoops....I might have overdone it today....I've wanted to get out for a run for the past's been 60 the past few days but things have came up that I couldn't run...well I got out of work and I set off for a run...I wanted 5 but I settled for 4.4 miles...

I ran up the one little hill on the path... And I think I had a heart took me forever to get my little pumper pumping normal again...

Then I took a break and met with a friend...before heading back to the gym for Zumba

Now my knees are killing me....I'll survive..but it'll be a few days recovery

    I always do that! I have the hardest time reining it in when I've been stuck and I FINALLY get to go outside and RUN! And then I pay for it. We'll learn one of these days!

Last week

Monday, March 31, 2014

Last week started good, I lost a pound every other day...then Wednesday hit and there was a terrible accident where I bought and consumed two donuts :( ate some not so healthy supper, and waitressed with my bad eating habits coming back when I couldn't possibly resist a bag of Doritos, an old enemy I haven't touched in over a year....the chips won...

Oh well, today is the last day of March...I have some great things planned in April and I'm ready for life...I'll try to make better choices and not beat myself up when my weight increases....

I need to get myself down to 182 on my scale at least before my next nutritionist appt which is tba but probably in 3 weeks....

So here is to the end of March....I shall make it a good one!

    if you want a donate, buy 1 and enjoy. If you want Doritos buy one small bag and enjoy. When you buy them ask yourself why and make sure it is for the right reason, you want a snack, but not for stress or to feel better, for those do what you have become good at, go for a run?

    "Fall down seven times, get up eight." Chinese Proverb

When we "fall" off our plan we get to start anew the next day. It is so nice to realize that a bad day doesn't make us failures, all it does is create a small bump in the road.

I love my gym and the people there....but seriously, I'm standing in the locker room and this lady comes up in my face, asking about my day, and then proceeds to tell me she is coming down with the stomach flu! Umm, three steps back please and where is the hand sanitizer?

Or I'm at work today and this girl comes up and says she has mono, I have no clue if that's catchable and I don't want to know either...but hello, if you're sick, stay out of peoples faces and get home in bed

I've never been an eww you have germs get away kinda person, because I was always sick, heck, I was a spreader... But now each time I get sick, I'm sidelined from all my physical exercises for fear of spreading and lack of energy...and my somewhat healthy eating habits get destroyed...

So yes, I am now the girl that steps back when you say your sick and carry my own two bottles of hand sanitizer just in case :)

    I can totally relate to what you are saying. I was never one of those people either because I too was always getting sick. Now that I am eating healthier and exercising I am a much healthier person and do not get sick very much. Now i get a little annoyed when people are standing so close to me and saying how they were up all night with various people that have different illnesses! I get almost crazy! When my daughter is sick she stays home...period! If I get sick and can't miss work...I stay away from people and try to keep my germs to myself! I hope the bug that is going around does not get you or your family but keep the sanitizer close by!!

    It is probably of no surprise to you, but today's society has not been well educated in etiquette or manner. Hope you do not get sick.

    I TOTALLY get what you're saying!!

However, I hate it when I sneeze and someone gives me side-eye as though I sneezed without covering it.

Hope you stay healthy!

    I am the same way, I had a meeting scheduled tonight, but I found out the stomach flu is going around there, so I am not going. I can not afford to get sick. I am self-employed and also I don't want to stop all of my activity. My husband is going to the meeting and I gave him instructions, don't touch your hands to your face, keep your distance from everyone, and if you do shake someone's hand, sanitize yours afterwards. Probably sounds severe, but I haven't been sick for years and I plan on keeping it that way.

I hope you stay well.
