I am so weak!

Saturday, February 14, 2009

I did really good all day yesterday and then Dinner time came. I didn't have a plan so I ended up eating a ton of Spaghetti not a good choice for me! Then if that wasn't bad enough as soon as everyone went to sleep I drank a lot of Milk and had 4 sara lee chocolate Valentines cakes. emoticon

    Question or something to think about, Kristi... Did you enjoy it? The spaghetti and the Valentines? Really? Be honest with YOURSELF about the experience. Don't "tell" yourself all the things that you're programmed to hear. Instead, think about it for yourself. What felt good, bad, neither? What emotions did you feel while you were eating these things? Is there anything you can learn about yourself if you pay attention to what happened?

None of these experiences are really mistakes. They don't make you a bad person. You didn't even necessarily make bad choices. You ate what you ate and you are a work in progress. Not Paying Attention to yourself and your needs and your experiences... now THAT would be a mistake. Because that would mean you're not really living your life. That would mean that you are numbing yourself and that you are letting yourself be a passenger in a life you are assuming you are predestined to lead. And if THAT's the case... what's the point? Why even keep trying? AND YOU ARE STILL TRYING, so...? that must NOT be the case!

Try try try to take a moment and pay attention to yourself and your needs. What is it that you truly want from all this Sparking? What goal are you trying to achieve? Are you just trying to lose weight? Because if that's the case, any old fad diet ought to work. You'll just have to figure out how to stay motivated long enough for the weight to all come off. OR..... are you trying to change your lifestyle??? Because if THAT's what you're trying to do, you're going to have to do more than go on a diet. You're going to have to, piece by piece, figure out what makes the Old Kristi do the things she did/does so that you can change your relationship with food, tweek your old habits and develop new ones (little by little), and then, AS A RESULT of the changing, you will also find yourself losing weight. All of it. Permanently. Get it?

Hugs for another week! ~Nina

    You have to prepare for mistakes. Take them, let go, and move on. Everyone has bad days. ;-) I have had plenty! But, the next day comes and is a brand new start.

Not so good..........

Thursday, February 12, 2009

So far this week I have not made good choices! I'm going to pick myself back up and start again new today! I still have half the week left before weigh in day. I am planning to have Steak and Shrimp for Valentines and then Pizza Hut on Sunday for Na scar. I still have my last chance p.m. workout and my 5K on Sunday so if I can get it together I could still be ok.

  Girl you can still eat all that and have a great weigh-in day. Just eat alot of salad with little to no dressing before the big stuff and get half of your steak and shrimp to go before they bring it out to you or have them to bring you a doggie bag with our food and cut in half then. Either way you can do it. Take smaller cuts of pizza to make it look like you are eating more and make sure to drink water before eating to curve that appitite. You know what to do you have been there done this before. Just remember to fill up on water and salad and that way you can saver the shrimp and steak. They are both my weakness alon with a baked potatoe loaded. Just remember that we are all here rooting for you and your next weigh-in day. YOU CAN DO IT!!!!!!!!!!

    I just stumbled onto your blog and page and STORY...WOW! You are inspiring me... I lost 62 lbs a year ago then "took a lil break"... getting the incredible eating machine halted and turned around was very painful, but thankfully headed back the right way now! You have inspired me with getting back to it yourself...I KNOW how hard it is, but WE CAN DO THIS THANG! We'll reach our goals this year and we'll be singin'

IN 2009, VICTORY IS MINE!!!! emoticon

    You can do it, you have plenty of time left in the week. It's all about recovering and picking yourself back up after you've fallen off the wagon and trying not to beat yourself up for it.

2 Days until weigh in!

Saturday, February 07, 2009

I'm still here I've just been busy! So far this week I have done all my planned workouts and drank all of my water. My food has been super close I feel like for the most part I have made good decisions. This morning I am all ready for my workout and then to night I will be doing my extra last chance workout and then in the morning my 5K. I'm hoping for a 2 pound loss this week. We shall see.

Good luck everyone and happy Sparking!
