Long time, no SP

Wednesday, October 29, 2008

I have inadvertantly taken a month or two off. Now that I no longer receive SP emails everyday, I no longer go the site to spin the wheel or to get my fitness points. The exercise was still happening all that time, but the time I devoted to it each day dwindled because I have kids who needed to get to school early two or three days a week. I also have gradually been eating everything not nailed down and voila! I've put on six or seven or ten pounds! My pants are uncomfortable and that has been the motivation to get serious again. I don't know if I can devote the time to post here very often, but I'm determined to turn this around. The first goal is to get back below 190. Please pray for me that I can eat reasonably at Bunco tonight and stay out of the Halloween candy on Friday. This weekend, we'll be visiting family so that will be another hurdle.

    Good for you for catching yourself and deciding to get back on track before things get worse. This is just a blip if you get back on track.

Let us know when you reach your first goal. I am going to set a goal, too.

Need a kick in the pants

Friday, August 22, 2008

It's been a stressful and strange week. Consequently I wiped out my loss from last week with an equal gain this week. I knew I wasn't doing well, but I didn't think I had fallen off the wagon that much! Lots of back-to-school stuff this week and why is there suddenly cake everywhere I go this week? I don't even like cake that well, but I've been shoveling it in. And it all adds up. I haven't been logging as diligently as I should (time issues) and I haven't been drinking water as I should. I have been exercising, but meals have been "grad a bite and run" affairs. I hope I can be more mindful of what is going in my mouth this weekend and get back to eating more fruits and veggies and drinking water. I may have to do some cooking ahead this weekend.

    A kick in the pants? How about a hug instead!

I am so with you this week. I thought I was going to get below 66 kg at last, got down to 66.1, and now I'm up to 67. Bah. Can't blame the hormones, either, it is all coming in my mouth. And we aren't even going back to school for another two weeks!

We just have to hang in there, J, and keep the faith. Remember you've got lots of support all around, try to imagine one of us watching when you are confronted with that cake, maybe it will help ...

    I'm sure you'll get right back on track. Back to school adjustment is hard.

So pleased!

Friday, August 15, 2008

I am very happy to update my weight ticker this morning. I'm back down to the weight I thought I'd go above again. Despite eating at Red Robin while back-to-school shopping yesterday, I lost two pounds this week. Still lots of work to do, for sure, but for me, success breeds success and now that I've got a spurt of losses going for me, its easier to stay on program and stay motivated.

    Yay J!

I hear you about success breeding success. I, too, have a nice number to put on my ticker today, and it has really made me determined to carry on.

Keep up the good work!

Taco salad shells

Thursday, August 07, 2008

Here's the story: I come home for lunch and find my 12-year-old daughter and her friend that slept over last night STILL ASLEEP (it's 12:05 p.m.) and the kitchen full of their dirty dishes. I was pretty angry, so after waking her up and speaking with her and laying down the law, I decided to get the heck out of there so they could clean up. I hope to be very impressed at 4:30. Stay tuned...

So I went out to lunch. Everything was crammed, so I ended up at Hardee's where the jalapeno ThickBurger looked quite tempting, but I ordered a taco salad instead.

Do you KNOW how many calories that salad has???! I never would have guessed *950*! I just looked it up on their home page. I didn't eat the sour cream (50 calories) and I didn't eat all the salad shell, but I did eat over half of it. It must be pure grease--I loved it! So I'm putting down for 840 calories--that's a Taco Bell taco salad with the shell.

This is were "angry eating" will get you. Please learn from my pitiful example.

    Sorry about the angry eating, J, but I'm glad you at least enjoyed the taco salad. The really sad stories are when you eat all those calories and don't even enjoy them - now *that* is what I call a waste.

I hope K and her friend redeemed themselves this afternoon!

I never want to see this number AGAIN

Friday, July 25, 2008

I've been strict about logging my food now for three days. This morning was my usual morning to weigh in. This is the first time since I've been home from vacation that I weighed myself on my own scales, and the first time I've weighed in in two weeks. What I saw was a number I never want to see again...190. Boo! I should have weighed myself the morning after I got home to see how much damage I did, but I didn't have the heart for it.

    Oh J, that s*cks big-time. So sorry.

I just got home from vacation today, I guess I should weigh myself tomorrow, but I sure don't want to! I did get some running done, but nowhere near enough to deal with the excess calories, I'm sure.
