HAPPY HUMP DAY

Wednesday, May 21, 2014

Happy Wednesday everyone!!! It is going to be a warm one here in Indiana, but it is so welcomed after the winter we had. Today I am going to strive to track! Tracking is a very important tool when we are trying to change our eating habits! It is also one of the hardest things for me to you for some reason. So, today is the day I will track everything that goes into my mouth. Whether it is nourishment or
stress eating. Stress eating, is my addictive behavior. Now learning what I can replace it with will be the key for me to achieve. So, upward and onward!

  If you have any set meals (like eating the same thing for breakfast every morning) you might log those as a grouping. It makes it a lot easier to go to your groupings tab (on the nutrition tracking page) and then select "breakfast". Good luck on tracking!

New Beginnings

Wednesday, May 14, 2014

Yesterday I started my day (after getting my son to school) with the Qi Gong video. I wasn't able to do the whole thing. Needed to stop and sit to rest my back a couple of times but got right back up and continued with the video. It is 15 Minutes of quietness. Boy do I need that. I am learning that food cannot be a Coping mechanism for stress. I need to learn how to cope in a more healthy way.
Today when I did the video I was able to make it all the way through! emoticon It is so relaxing, I may increase doing the video to two times a day. So for the rest of this week I am working on getting consistent with doing the video.

The next undertaking will be to reread the THE SPARK, to really seal the deal. I am striving to take things slowly. emoticon

What I learned yesterday

Monday, February 24, 2014

Yesterday started out being a pretty good day. I have a habit tracking my breakfast and lunch pretty well and then by dinner time life gets in the way and everything goes out the window! Yesterday I tracked everything. Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Snack. I did have a binge last night, which I thought wasn't a big deal but because of the binge I put away. 3156 Calories !!! Going into dinner I was at 766 Calories! Wow that was a real eye opener. Tracking and being honest about you're eating is the best way to figure things out! Yay Me!!! emoticon

    Tracking helps me a lot, too. And when I track everything, sometimes it's an oh my moment. Here's how i track: Underestimate what I've eaten and overestimate my exercise. I mean, it's the other way around!

This time I am going to live within my means. What I mean by that is that I am going to go slow get one thing down at a time, then an only then will I move on. This is not a sprint. It is a marathon.

A Letter to Myself

Sunday, April 21, 2013

Today is Sunday April 21, 2013
The Spark Coach challenge for today is to write a supportive letter to yourself, but writing it as if you are yourself.

Dear Ann,

I know your journey has been a little rough as of late. But know that I believe in you. I know you can conquer the issues your are having to regain your life, health, and just in feeling better all the way around. Why is it, that the habits that are the hardest to break are the ones that weigh the heaviest in our soul. I wish I knew the answer to that ... but what I do know is this. You are not in this alone. I will be with you every step of the way. And together we will beat all that is against our health. So my friend, get up, dust yourself off, and start again. Today, right at this very moment, we will take one moment at a time and lean on eachother until we can stand on our own. I love you dear friend and I believe you can do this.

Sincerely,
Ann emoticon emoticon
