What's The Problem?

Monday, July 29, 2013

I have not been consistent the past three months-tracking my food or working out. I normally like exercise but for the past month I just can't get motivated. Maybe I'm bored, I don't know. I think I have realized how difficult this is going to be and the permanent changes I am going to have to make and for some reason I am fighting it. I have started to avoid mirrors and having my picture taken because of how heavy I have gotten. I don't want to be like this so what's the problem? I'm the only thing standing in the way of everything I want. How's that for motivation? But where is my discipline, why aren't I doing it? I don't know and to be honest, it's depressing.
But I have tracked every bite for the past week so pat on my back for that. I think I'm going to focus on tracking for now-I feel proud when I log my exercise and meet my "food quotas". I've been wanting to vent for a while, thanks for reading and not judging.

Breakthrough!

Thursday, February 28, 2013

Today, for the first time I actually ate less than my daily calorie allowance. Truth be told, I was really busy at work and went to the gym on my lunch break so I didn't have a lot of time to eat. I had made a batch of brown rice with dried cranberries and sunflower seeds the night before so when I got home (ravenous) I measured out a serving size and ate that to tide me over until dinner which was 4 oz of steak and a cup of steamed broccoli. I feel completely satisfied, ya know? With the exception of writing this blog, I don't feel anything else about food right now. I used to obsess about what I was going to cook for dinner, when I was going to eat again! If there was food in front of me, forget it, I was eating it. It took two full months to get to this point and I'm sure my struggle is not over. But I am sure enjoying this feeling right now ;)

Finally...

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

I'm finally figuring out what 1,500 calories a day means. I was so used to eating at least 2,000 a day that cutting back was a huge adjustment for me. I think part of the reason is because I never felt like I was overeating. But I'll tell you what, I do a lot of nibbling while I cook and the truth is by dinner time, I'm not even hungry. The old me would have dinner anyway but now I don't, and that has made all the difference.

Promise to do better

Monday, February 04, 2013

Yuck, I hate excuses but between work and school I did not have a successful January. However Feb is off to a good start. I am just now discovering Spark's workout videos and I love them!!! The gym has gotten to be monotonous. Yesterday I tried the Barre method for arms and today i did Bollywood cardio. Yippee!

  


Yesterday was great!

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

So I am using my success yesterday to motivate myself to keep it up today. Took my sister out for lunch today for her birthday and sushi with brown rice and water. I have some yummy veg soup for dinner and already went to the gym. Woo hoo! I want to post some motivational sayings around the house so I can always have a clear idea of what my short term goals are. Long term goal is in the form of a new bathing suit hanging in my closet for April vacation ;)
