Well, I convinced myself that my Mt. Dew intake wasn't that bad--and it wasn't. But since my last post I moved up to 2 cans a day and I've gained 4lbs. I know that doesn't sound like a lot but it's just not about the weight. It's the weakness. Plus it's just unhealthy. At 2 a day I don't drink water and the body needs water. I ended up sick and in the ER and I know it was from drinking soda. I hope now that I can finally get it together. After a long and stressful school year I hope to relax over the summer. Regroup. I've not felt this bad (physically, mentally, emotionally, etc) since I started this journey nearly 3 yrs ago.


Lost this round

The first time I ran to the store to buy some OJ I got the craving for a Mt. Dew. I did not buy one. The second time I ran to the store to get some makeup I bought one. So far I've only had 8 oz. My husband isn't here to finish it off for me and it would be wasteful to poor the rest down the drain, right? LOL


My One Continued Weakness

Saturday, January 08, 2011

I've reached by goal--and have actually gone beyond it. I feel better. I think I look better. emoticon But I still haven't conquered my problem with Mt. Dew! Every now and then I'll pick up a candy bar at the counter. I'll look at the calories and fat and put it back without a second glance. Same thing with my favorite cinnamon donuts. But that doesn't work with soda. Even knowing that it goes straight to my stomach and thighs don't work. I've long since stopped storing it in the house, thinking/hoping/praying that if I actually have to go out and get one I won't. Most of the time I don't. I ask my husband to pick up one on the way home from work. I even send my son to the store to buy one. It's CRAZY! How do I stop????


Donuts & Mountain Dew

Wednesday, January 27, 2010

My mistake was going to class without having anything to drink. I'd gotten up late and was running. I didn't have any change. So on my way home I decided I'd stop by Walmart and pick up some cinnamon mini-donuts and the Dew. I knew it was simply that I was thirsty but suddenly both sounded so good. I only ate 8 donuts and I drank lots of water but then my oldest decided to buy pizza for dinner! I had 2 small slices. So all in all it was a BAD day. I've rebounded, though. For breakfast I had 1 serving of oatmeal, 1 slice of toast, 1/2 c OJ, and 12 almonds. We still have donuts but I've lost the day for them. THIS should be a good day :-)


Going for the last 5

Sunday, January 10, 2010

I've long reached my goal of 130lbs. I've been consistent, fluctuating between 128-130 as I try to decide if I really want to reach my true weight goal of 125. That was my original goal but "everyone" thought that was too low and for some reason I feared I might not be able to make it so I settled for 130. I like how I look but my stomach and thighs are still a tad bigger than I want them to be.

So the last week of December I decided on a 6 week plan to lose 5lbs. I would avoid carbs the first week, drink 6 glasses of water a day, exercise 3x a week (after reaching my goal it's been very hard to get to the gym more than once a week) and weights 2x a week.

First week report: Carbs was easy. It's too cold to drink a lot of water, so I drank 6 a couple days (pee'd ALOT!), 5 a couple a days, and 4. I made it to the gym once but I did 100 crunches on those days. I lost 2 lbs.

I already know this week is going to be tough as far as the gym. I'm only planning on 2 days and I might not even get that. So I decided to add another week of no carbs.

Week 2 begins today!
