my spark challenge is to eat every 3-4 hrs. and record how i liked it.
i normally do this all the time. i just get too hungry if i wait longer. what i am finding that is working for me is to much on carrots, celery, cup up apple, or grapes. i work afternoons. i take a combination with me to work in a baggie. between 2:30 and 6:30, i munch on them and it is working out quite nicely,
what i need to do, and i will chanllenge myself to do this, is to follow the same routine on my days off. usually my day off is a disaster. going out to eat and munching on all kinds of things.
so this `is my challenge to follow this same tactic on my days off

well today, i have done nothing. no excercise, not a good day of eating, but i am paying for it now. i am just having a lot of stomache problems and feel yucky. but i am not giving up. this is a journey and i will have days like this.
so in general, what am i doing to encourage myself?
i did not buy any granola bars or low fat ice cream to snack on after work. instead, i will sop at speedway or sheetz. they have healthy snacks and i will buy 1 serving so that way i will not go crazy eating too much somewhat healthy stuff.
the peanut butter is still here, which is my weekness. my husband said he would hide it, but i am trying to just restarin myself and be strong.
i am looking at the big picture and how i want to look and feel. i started the beck diet solution book. i downloaded an app on my phone for flashcards. this is step one of the book. it is to make flashcards for the reasons you want to lose weight. i am still at the beginning of the book, but we will see how it plays out.
good luck to all my spark friends.

this week challenge is blogging.
what new habit do i want to develop?
i really would like to get into a habit of just having 1 or 2 small snacks after work. i usually go crazy and consume about 400 calories after work. this is really sabatoging my effort at losing weight.
most of the time, my calories are ok but i dont want to consume that much before bed. even if you consume 400 calories of healthy food ( which i do plenty of times) , it is still calories
how will i go about this?
i will have to do a lot of pre planning. i have to keep peanut butter out of my sight. this is a big weakness, but my husband insisits we have to have some in the house.
i must think about what i want to eat before i eat. it has to be some kind of comfort food llike a granola bar or pudding.
maybe i could try blogging or doing crosswood puzzles or reading.
this will require a lot of effort but i can do it.

today was weigh in day.
i have lost 2.4 lbs in 2 weeks. i also started measuring myself. it doesnt look very good. but it has motivated me to move more and get rid of these inches.
one lesson i have learned and a habit i have formed is to snack on veggies. i have a pretty good routine going if i must say so.
i have a fruit for breakfast, 1 cup of veggies for lunch (which is 2 servings), i snack on carrots and celery and grapes in the afternoon until dinner so i dont get hungry. i usually count this as 1 cup veggies( which is 2 servings), i have 1 cup veggies for dinner( 2 servings) and a fruit for a snack. that is a total of 8 servings. as long as if follow this, i dont seem to be getting hungry
still struggling with nighttime eating habit, but it is getting better.
i am making better choices and saying no more often to processed, sugary foods.
things are looking up!!
