Missed blogging yesterday, but had a really good eating and exercising week. Maybe I should change the blogging goal to every other day. I don't have much to say and seems silly to do it each day.

Anyway, even with all the stresses of the week I feel good about how I have done. I'm down 5lbs. Yeah me! Could have easily thrown in towel but hung in there and did the right thing. Probably over did it on the wine. It was my coping mechanism for the week. I'll have to stop that. Maybe this coming week I'll add the goal of no wine during the week. I'll allow myself a glass or two over the weekend. I suppose it would be better for me to cut it out all together, but I'm not there yet. I feel if I do that then I may throw in the towel on the eating and binge.

Well, already done with the exercise for today. I'll have to start thinking about adding the weights back in again. They make a difference. I at least have to get serious about the PT exercises for my neck and back. I really don't want to get back to the level of pain I was having.

Ok, back to spring cleaning.

    Well according to the Mediterranian diet, you can have a glass of red wine everyday. The Sonoma diet says the same thing. So... not necessarily bad, and I wouldn't cut it out altogether. :) Perhaps I'm the devil on your shoulder, but I really am serious. Lots of antioxidants. That is if it's red, lol. Anyhow, glad to see you had such a good exercise and eating week. YOu feel great now, don't you? anyhow, off to bed for me. Just needed to come back and check things out. Am using my old computer now because I still haven't had time to reload all the stuff on my virused one. Maybe I'll take it with me to work and do it. Had a hugely busy weekend (it's on my blog if you're interested, lol), but now I'm procrastinating for tomorrow. I'm really tossing the idea around of calling in sick. I'm am so mentally drained, I don't know how I'll do any work tomorrow. But me and my responsible side, will end up going to work tomorrow anyhow. So, have a great Monday! And I'm really going now!

Take care, and hugs to you!

Ok, so getting my blog for today done. Today was one of those " I can't get out of my own way today" days. Don't know what is making me feel this way, but there I have it, I just feel bitchy. Didn't help that I then was searching through pictures we have and all I could see is how very fat I am. I'm disgusted with myself. In my head I am never as big as the pictures prove I am. And yet, the first thing it makes me want to do it eat. And eat alot. I was already in a "mood" before I started the picture search, looking at pictures made it worse. I just want to scream, I want to scream, I want to scream. Sometime the frustration just gets to me. I remember the days when I was addicted to exercise and not food. I weighed all of 110lbs and went to the gym 6-7 times a weeks, for hours at a time. I feel like I should be able to switch back to that addiction. It certainly was healthier. I'd rather have to learn how to balance how much exercise I do and not how much food I have to eat. Shouldn't there just be a little switch somewhere in our brain we can flip? It seems to have flipped easy enough the other way. I know I didn't put it on overnight, and I know I can't take it off overnight. If it were that simple, as they say, then we would all be thin. I need patience. It's days like this that I really should be writing down all my blessings instead of my complaints. Just can't get out of my own way. Maybe I'll jump back on the treadmill. It will be alot better for me than the binge that is threatening me. The good news is I have no junk for at all in the house. The bad news is, when you really want to eat bad, you find a way. So, I think I'll go get on the treadmill for a second time today and work of some of this frustration.

Just a quick blog today. Had a successful eating and exercise day. Added 10 minutes onto my exercise and walked faster so that's good. No painting today. I got my hair done and headed to my Mom's to help her hang things on her bedroom walls. New remodel we are putting back together. Looks nice.

Tomorrow I'll try putting in extra time on the treadmill again. It will also be a painting day.

Ok, signing off. Exhausted today and just want to hit the couch.

    As long as you are moving, it doesn't matter if its the treadmill or putting up curtains that counts. Keep trucking!!!!

11:02 pm. Tired and want to go to bed. Then the light bulb moment, and I remembered one of my goals for the week. Blog each day. So, here I am. It's going to be short and sweet. Hmmmm....sweet makes me hungry. No, I'll not cave in. I'll blog and go straight to bed.

Anyway, on a serious note, I did have a successful eating day. However, I was feeling like I wanted to prowl in the kitchen all day. I work from home, so the kitchen is real close. On days like this, it's not a good thing. I made it through. Talked myself out of eating chips I know my husband has stashed. I think some of that feeling of wanting to prowl and find something to eat came from frustration painting today. Some days everything clicks and I'm painting all day, and some days, like today, it was all just a struggle. From deciding what to paint, how I wanted to finish pieces near completion, and how i wanted to sketch out new drawings. Everything was a struggle. So, on the painting portion of my goal this week, today was in the dumps.

Exercising went well. I got it done nice and early. I was psyched thinking, "okay, now I'll have even more time to paint", laughs on me.

Well, three out of four. I'll take it. I'll be able to get some painting done tomorrow before and appointment and after I see my Mom. I'll look forward to better results. I'll keep my fingers crossed for extra luck. Hey, it's can't hurt. lol

signing off.

    I had about 5 chips last night. Then I stopped myself and grabbed the pea pods from the fridge and took them downstairs with me and took my green tea, too. I get like that too, but it's all about choices, and really, the pea pods did taste better than the chips. even without any dip!

Keep up the good work!
