Ridiculous way of thinking

Wednesday, February 09, 2011

I know what I'm about to say is silly but, it's the sugar and the pasta talking so keep that in mind emoticon For the last 3 weeks I have been doing my workouts 5 days a week and this week I added 20 glasses of water... I have been averaging about .2lbs a day so yesterday I decided to track food expecting to lose at least .3 this morning and again the scale said .2 emoticon. The problem with that is now when the pasta and sugar are calling my name it makes it harder to say NO! Deep down I know I have to be consistent for more weight to come off but, can I convince the voice's in my head? emoticon

    Think of it this way. You tracked and you still lost .2 lbs in a day. Sometimes results from the previous day don't show up on the scale so quickly. It might show the next day, or at the end of the week. It's cumulative, remember? You cannot blow it with pasta and sugar. You just can't! Hang in there Kristi, you have proven that you can get past this. Heck, you have that dang treadmill in your house. If you ever want to have pasta or sugar, tell yourself you have to do 10 minutes or 20 minutes on the treadmill before you can eat it. Or, call me! I will talk you out of it or at least distract you long enough to avoid it and get it off your mind.

Give the tracking a little more time to take effect. I think you will get excellent results if you do.

    So let me get this straight. You are thinking that because you tracked your food and you did not see a bigger loss on the scale this morning, that you might as well eat pasta and sugar?

    Yes, that stuff can add up. It's good to track because it reminds you of stuff like that. It's all healthy stuff, but even too much healthy stuff can add calories and slow down your progress! Sounds like a very good, fiber filled lunch with healthy fats, etc. Yum! It's time for me to eat lunch now.

    Way to go Kristi! It's all coming together and I think you will see great results on Saturday when you weigh in! Give the food tracking a chance. Maybe once you get used to it a little more, you won't think of it so much. I only think about it when I'm hungry these days. As soon as I feel hungry, I start trying to remember what I planned for and what I could eat next. The rest of the time, I don't really think about it too much. Hang in there and give it a chance. You made it work for you before...I know you can do it again!

    Since I seem to have a few extra minutes today I think I am going to try logging all my food for the day! emoticon and see how that effects my weight in the morning. It was 2 weeks ago that I decided to eat that bowl of past and then binge the next day ... and it has taken me until today to get back to where I was so note to self NO PASTA!

Healthy Habits

Tuesday, February 08, 2011

So I wake up this morning with a thought why have I not trained my morning child to get up in the morning and do a workout? We have always had rules for food so that she will have healthy habits ex: when she gets home from school she is allowed to have a snack but, it can only be a fruit or Veggie...also she is only allowed to drink water throughout the day when we have meals she gets to chose something else .. most of the time she chooses something healthy then too! This last summer we let her stay with grandma for a month and when she got home she had stuffed her self with crap the whole time.. you could really tell and people kept asking me if she was "ok" so I just put her back on her normal food routine and signed her up for Fall Soccer she was back to normal in a matter of a few weeks. My older daughter moved out for 6 months as a size 3 and returned to as a size 7 after just a few months she is back to a 3 ( I guess being able to drink soda and stuff your face with pastries wasn't all she thought it would be =) ) Anyways long story short My 11 year old gets up everyvmorning 3 hours before school .. I dont know why .. I'm not a morning person but, this morning I thought I should pop in a workout video and she what she does ... she immediately got excited finished up her breakfast and is now working out .. I hope she sticks to this every morning ..I'm sure it will help the thinking process at school too and hopefully if she does it most morning from now - 7th grade it will just be something she does for the rest of her life!

emoticon With that said I am off to do my Tuesday workout emoticon 4 days until weigh in!!!

    Wow, I wish my kids got up 3 hours before school! It's hard when you send your kids to visit someone and they don't feed them the way you'd like them to.

    20 cups! I don't know if I could do that, but I have never tried. Interesting about the difference in your weight loss between 14 and 20 cups. Have another great week!

    Considering that you are not tracking food and just exercising, that's almost a pound a week loss and that is awesome!

That sure is a lot of water to drink! Make sure you're always near a bathroom! That's one of the hardest things for me in adjusting to my new level of water intake. I always have to pee!!! Hahaha.

Congrats on posting the current pics. I really need to do the same thing. Okay, I'm going to do that today. Ugh.
