Let life overwhelm me

Saturday, October 25, 2014

Auto Pilot again. I lost 3.5 pounds the one week I committed. Ever since then have been fighting myself. Somewhat focused but not committed.

I use excuses and do not take responsibility.

I have been hitting the chocolate EVERY night and not just a little either. I broke into the Halloween Candy!

I'm drowning my feelings and know its time to get some Therapy. Getting an appointment is another whole story!

two days

Thursday, October 02, 2014

emoticon So far this week am printing my menu for each day and have gotten some type of exercise in. Went out with friends last night and did not order an appetizer. Ate an arugula salad with ginger dressing with a small portion of linguine and clams. Only one bottle of beer instead of two glasses of wine. A little bloated today, not too bad. Eating whats on the plan today.


First Day at Work

Tuesday, September 30, 2014

First day following my meal plan at work. Was tired and got shaky around 10:30. I came home and fixed my veggie burger. I ate in front of the TV though, not very mindful. I overate the Scalloped Potato casserole I had fixed my Husband. Felt empty inside.

    That is a great idea.. I tried Weight Watcher treats in the past and loved them. I'm trying to break the addiction and everytime I go for something like that it is a trigger to me to binge and I feel lousy after that.

I am going hard at trying not to think about treats. I'm looking at replacing them with holistic approaches.

Do you binger or do they trigger you?

    I bought some Weight Watchers chocolate covered raspberry treats.. very tasty..not as good as anything pumpkin, but tasty. I think they are one point if you are a WW person,,I am not.

Success Day One

Sunday, September 28, 2014

I love the way Spark has changed since 2012 when I first learned about it. The "Start" page puts everything you need to get motivated all in one place.

I committed to the Spark meal plan for this week and am extremely excited my Husband was so supportive as I went through the grocery and ticked off the list the items to support the plan.

I'm happy with myself that this decision has been made and that I have goals. I am a very goal oriented person in my Career, but never for myself.

I fight self-destruction everyday and I fight staying motivated. I am going to look to Spark for that. I have been sparked, empowered, and encouraged. emoticon

    Way to go. I too have been a member of Spark (off and on ) for some time and like the changes to. I'm definitely motivated to do this. I even joined a "Thin It To Win" it challenge and between Spark and the challenge I find myself checking in here (and there) more often. I wouldn't have done it without Spark People.

You will do it - one day at a time. Check the Spark Streaks, if you haven't already. I simply don't want to break my chain.

Keep us posted on how you're doing.
