Things I've learned

Wednesday, June 20, 2012

Even though I still struggle with my eating / exercise habits on a daily basis I have noticed that my all or no mentality is starting get a little better. I used to think that if I ate bad in the morning I might as well eat bad all day. Or if I knew that I was planning to eat something bad for dinner I would just eat crappy all morning too. And it didnt stop there if i ate bad on Monday I would then eat bad the entire week instead of starting fresh the next day. I have finally realized that 24 hours does not start at 12am and end at 12am the next day and that each week doesnt have to start with Sunday and end with Saturday.

So even though I am far from my goal .. being able to eat a bad meal and then not eat bad the rest of the day or miss a workout and be able to start the next day instead of the next week I feel that is a HUGE success for me! And important to my future maintenance.


Now if I could just figure out how to stop medicating with food for Anxiety and Stress?

    Loved this blog! I can see myself! I also have a all or nothing mentality. That is why I never reached my goal. I've visited 230ville 3 times. Started a fall challenge & it's a new start for me. It's my choice wheather I will lose the weight or not. This time I'm making the right choices. Loved that line, "stop medicating with food for stress" which I also do which got me into a lot of trouble. Wish you sucess! emoticon emoticon Linda

Maintance or Weight loss?

Wednesday, June 13, 2012

June 13th 2012 -For the next week I am going to try something different to see if I lose weight or just maintain.

My plan:

Log my food Monday-Friday
Eat and drink whatever I want on Saturday and Sunday
Walk 18 Miles

I will report back next Wednesday with the results.

Current Weight

Ok I'm going to try this again....Finding different ways to deal with things that stress me out!

Tuesday, May 29, 2012

This morning when I was walking my 6 miles I thought to myself I wonder what is going to trigger me to binge today? Well clutter is what I came up with and for some reason clutter bugs me most Tuesday-Thursday (I know I'm weird) so I decided to pick a room that is bugging me and fix it. So not that you want to see my clutter but, I'm going to post Before and after pics...What ever works right emoticon

I also figured out that if I walk an average of 15 miles a week I can eat an average of 1232 Calories a day and lose 2 pounds a week. I didn't track my food today but, I have written it down on paper where I can see it! Before Before After Before After Before After

    I know there are still boxes everywhere .... we own a business so that will never go away (which is a good thing) but, this is what it looks like organized and ready to go. emoticon

Finding different ways to deal with things that stress me out!

    I'm one of those people that once I right something down's gone! emoticon So I'm not even sure If I can remember what I said ...and I have to say it was amazing! I will try again in a few...if I can.

If there was a lesson to be learned by this...this is what I learned ...If I'm stressed I should right it down....because apparently I can then be done with it?

    Is that a picture of boxes and stuff that needs to be organized?

    I hate it when that happens. You type something up about things that stress you out and stresses you out.

Don't binge! I'm walking a fine line between being on and off track...barely. Hang in there with me!
