I have a confession.
Yesterday I was rushing around and I did not pack a very good lunch.
At lunch everyone was eating corn dogs.
I wanted one but I resisted and ate my soup.
After work I was driving home and I was hungry.
I thought should I stop for chocolate NO!
A few miles down the road.
My car all of a sudden turns into the store and I find myself buying a corn dog and burrito
Where is my Spark Guardian Angel now? Where is my control?
I think they are around 800 cals. What is wrong with me?
I had just 15 mins until I get home and
I couldn't wait.
I get home and take a nap. .
I know being tired adds to being hungry I have read Spark Articles.
I get up and my DH had made supper.
I had to eat it.
Then my daughter made some brownies
I had to eat some.
Ok yesterday is yesterday. Today is today. I step on the scale 4lbs up.
I am not going to get mad at myself. I am doing positive self talk.
I can yesterday is gone. Forget and forgive.
Today my mini goal is I will not eat any Corn Dogs. I will not stop at the store.
I will stay within my calorie limit and eat healthy. I will write in my journal.
I packed a better lunch and I will drink green tea before I leave work so I will not be hungry
as I drive by Burger King, McDonald's, Stripes, Dollar General, Dairy Queen.
I have been spending time uploading audiobooks onto my IPOD so I can walk and listen to books at the same time. I know this maybe hard for some because I am a librarian but I really like listening to books. I like listening to the story. When I am walking it does not matter if I have gone over the same spot 10 times when I am listening to a new book I am motivated.
I used to listen to cassettes I would use rechargable batteries because I listened 7 hours a week. My kids got me a small IPOD. Now I download podiobooks and podcasts. In the past few weeks I have caught up with all my podcasts oh no what to do.
On the weekend I went to the local used books stall at our flea market. I took all my audiobooks and books on CD and traded them for another year supply of books. The problem is books on tape I still need to use the cassette player. The CD's I download them into ITunes then on to my ipod.
This year my kids say I need to upgrade my Ipod. When I jog I like music. Walking I like books. Such a problem but for now I am good.
I am ready for some good walking and some good books.
I had the most wonderful lunch Thanks to SparkPeople.
I met my friend Irene and Somer for lunch.
Since we talk with each other online and read each others blogs it is like I just saw them yesterday.
Irene is in TOPS with me and I see her more often but she still has surprising stories to tell. She really is a Spark.
Somer the last time I saw her we were in a 5K race. Both of us were out of breath and tired. It was great to see her again and to hear more about her family.
All of us are on Team RGV Spark and I am blessed that I get to see my Sparkfriends not only in the message boards but in person tooo.
This morning got up and walked the dogs.
Did some shopping and came home.
I was glad to take a nap because I am still recovering from my sinus.
At around 5:00pm my daughter said lets go out for Chinese.
I said if you go walking with me we can get some carry out.
So my daughter went for a walk with me.
While we were walking in the distance I saw a guy hitting or hugging his girlfriend as we got closer I saw it was hitting. I am glad he walked away or I would have ran him over with my truck. He is lucky. My daughter thought he was lucky too. She knows I am a woman of my word. I drove to the young girl see was OK and she did not want to call the police. She drove away before 2 police cars arrived. I guess I was not the only one concerned for her safety.
So my daughter and I got Chinese we got 2 carry outs. Came home and my husband and son helped us eat them.
It is still early so I rode my bike for 20 mins while I was watching TV.
I know this sounds like a boring day but it is my life.
