Last night I was attacked

Sunday, July 22, 2012

Last night as I was finishing my walk. I went by a little store and I was attacked a Hershey bar. It is true I think maybe I was just overwhelmed with heat and it just jumped into my mouth. Tonight I am not going by that store.

    What a great image! However, we all have to remember that we are way, way bigger than our attackers. (sort of like elephants & mice). Snacks and treats just fight dirty, getting in under our skin and trying to convince us that eating them is our own idea! We shall prevail! emoticon

    Hmmmm...there must be a rash of chocolate attacks.. The same thing happened to me. We will have to be vigilant and keep up our guard for rogue chocolate!

    Got you too. The Mini Reeses Peanut Butter cups ganged up on me. I put up a valiant fight but they were just too strong and I was overcome. Thank goodness there were only a few in the bag!

    Last night a big bowl of peach cobbler with ice cream tried to attack me but it did not win. 18 days without sweet and I took my candy to church this morning to give away. I did not eat a piece. Come on Becky emoticon

    It happens. The other night I was mugged by some Tootsie Roll midges. Luckily there were only 3 or 4, so they didn't do much damage. Personally I think the Giant Pixie Sticks were behind it.

Can it get any hotter

Friday, July 20, 2012

I got up late today so it was 10am before I went walking. It was a very beautiful day at South Padre Island so I walked and enjoyed. When I got home 2 hours later I found out that there is a heat advisory out. I felt great I am glad I took water with me and I was at the beach at least walking in the sand. Saturday I am going to try to get going earlier. I just have to get out of bed.

    How long will you be at the Beach this weekend?
I still need to go before I die or until schools starts up!!!
I have not been in years - way to long when I used to go
all the time.

  I hear you - I push to get my walk completed 1st thing in the morning. At the latest, I want to be finished by 9am due to the heat. Do you carry a water bottle with you? Or do you bring something with you to carry it in?
Keep up the good work!

Is the scale a liar?

Tuesday, July 17, 2012

As I step on the scale I whisper
Scale scale on the floor
Give me a numbed I will adore.

At my weekly weigh in I think it is
Russian rulet.
I came back from a road trip. I was mad at myself because I had gained 10lbs.
So many of my Spark friends wrote it is s just water weight but I knew the ice cream I had eaten the gummy worms and the taffy.
SO in the last 5 day I have walked 4-6 miles in the morning then 3 at night. NOT as a punishment but t o get to back in shape and to enjoy the last days of my vacation.
I can do this.

    Have you ever tried using a camera to record your eating when you are away from home? Just to make sure you aren't eating things just because you think no one's watching? The camera remembers everything!!!

    I wish you well but dont push to hard you can do more damage than good if you do to much at once, I use to be an athlete and I would see people work out with injuries or just push to hard and end up being out of play for a while because of the pain, but I do understand the want to feel and look better, you can do it though and btw congratulations for not making excuses and just deciding that you were gonna do it. emoticon

Thanks to my Sparkfriends

Friday, July 13, 2012

No place on the web could I write about gaining weight on a trip and have so many people support and understand how I feel. Facebook just would not do it.

Thank you Sparkfriends.

Within 5 mins of my posting how frustrated I was at myself I had Spark friends encouraging and supporting me. How easy it is to blog when things are going wonderful. But when I am mad at myself it is great to have the support of Spark.
Thank you all for inspiring me to keep on track.

You are the best.

Frustrated at self

Friday, July 13, 2012

After traveling for 2 weeks in the car and thinking I was eating right I weighed in today and found I had gained 6lbs back. OMG I worked hard to lose those pounds. I guess siting in a car for 75 hours without being able to exercise does not help. I tried to eat salads and good healthy meals when we stopped but let me tell you on the road it is very hard. When you are driving 12+ hours a day it is hard to find good healthy food. Subway is not always an option. Some of the salads I ordered were terrible. I sent one back. Salt was very high even when I asked for no added salt. I am not happy with myself.

I have 2 weeks left before school starts for me. I was on the right track but now I feel frustrated and feel like is all it really worth it. So what to do start again. Get back on the treadmill and do some walking. Go to the pool do some swimming. Make a healthy choices.

    I am sure some of that is simply water weight. Please, please, please don't be discouraged and don't beat yourself up about this. Just take control of yourself again and get back in the groove.

I KNOW you can do it!!

    I agree with LindaKay's comment. I suspect it's water weight, too. Try increasing your ice water with lemon intake and it may help to flush. Breathe. You're on the right track. :O) Patti

    When I spend a lot of time in the car I tend to retain water which may be affecting your weight gain. If so, as you get back into your routine some of it should come off fairly quickly. DOn't know if that's part of it but something to think about and maybe help to not be so discouraged. Getting back to exercise will help too. So hang in there and don't give up and don't beat yourself up. You can do it!
