No Sugar Tonight......

Monday, February 04, 2013

I was really CRAVING something sweet after dinner -- so I ate raisins. ok, still CRAVING something sugary... raisins were sweet but not sweet enough. emoticon emoticon emoticon

I waited it out... 5 min, 10 min, 15 min....

I go to the kitchen... I'm thinking of vanilla yogurt... yeah, that's the ticket... (knowing full-well that it wouldn't satisfy.)

Then I spotted the sauerkraut juice that I drained off the bag of Boar's Head Sauerkraut we used for our grilled Ruben sandwiches dinner tonight.

ok.... so i drank some..... ohhh. sour! tart!

I've seen cans of Sauerkraut juice for sale in the store. Why not?


That's right. Sauerkraut Juice. I have it setting here in cup right by my computer.... its here for me... one sip at a time (that's all I can handle).

Not craving sugar. Kinda in awe of my choice... and i don't know if I'll do this again... but hey No Sugar Tonight!


"Just for Today"

Monday, February 04, 2013

I am listening to an audio book: "How To Stop Worrying, And Start Living" by Dale Carnegie, copyright 1951; I didn't realize that the original "Just For Today" was written by Sybyl F. Partridge in 1916 and was printed in Carnegie's above mentioned book. I just heard it "read" to me and I just had to share:

"Just for Today"
Sybil F. Partridge

Just for today I will be happy. This assumes that what Abraham Lincoln said is true, that "most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be." Happiness is from within; it is not a matter of externals.

Just for today I will try to adjust myself to what is, ........

Pound gained instead of lost shock....

Sunday, July 10, 2011

I know, I know, I know...... it happens. it's ok. Just keep moving in the direction of self-care, choose healthy snacks, keep to the program's calorie intake suggestion, exercise......... just keep doing what I'm doing (with a little more ice cream portion control - please) Just don't give up!!!

But I feel crummy and sad and defeated about it anyway.

Well, I'm going to allow a pity party of about 30 minutes this morning and then move on. Darn. I wanted to see at least a pound gone..... maybe my self pity weighs 2 pounds (hahahaha)

  Silly girl. No need for the pitty party. I only weigh myself once a week. It gets me too frustrated to be tied to the scale. Fluxuation is daily. Read the info on it. A better way to track I find is measurements. Try on your old clothes. Do they fit? Do you feel good? Are you charting your foods and making better choices. I know your history shows that you CAN fix this and you inspire me to do better. If you are still looking for a buddy I would be glad to be one. Your brain and mine are in the same mode. PS I think your scale is broken!

    Yup it happens! Give yourself a break if you've been on track and if you exercise. Something as simple as water consumption can cause several pounds in fluctuation amongst many other variables! So just remember if you truly have been sticking to your plan don't fret! Well you can for those 30 minutes, lol. Take care.

Skipped Food Entry for a Few Days......

Tuesday, August 17, 2010

Yikes!!! I had a busy weekend and didn't log my food intake........ from Friday to Monday!!!

I sat down at the computer this morning and started to backtrack logging in my meals. Well, I wrote down most every thing on paper, but I don't remember some of it. Also, I need to get ready for work in a few minutes so -- the truth is I don't have enough time to backtrack with the logging in. I had to realize that and move on. It's ok. I know where I overdid it the last few days. I did write it down (most of it).

So-- I'm just going to get back on track....... and move on. emoticon
