Day 7: One Week Down

Sunday, July 31, 2011

Wow! I did it. I stumbled a bit at the end of the week but on the whole I made all my goals. And I lost 3.5 lbs to show for it. I know most of that is water weight but it's nice to see the scale heading in the right direction for a change.

My goals for this week are to keep up the good habits I started this week and to focus on making better choices in the evenings after I get home from work.

Day 6: Rotten Day All Round

Saturday, July 30, 2011

It started off so well too. I got in the weight training I was supposed to do. I made my lunch to bring to work. We were planning an evening out, just the two of us.

Then I overate at supper. And decided that I might as well have the popcorn at the movie. Then I scratched the paint on our brand new car on the garage. That's the one that really stings and makes me feel like crying. And is throwing some stress my way that usually leads to emotional eating. I'm going to have to be really aware of what I'm choosing to eat today.


Day 5

Friday, July 29, 2011

We had pizza for supper last night. I knew it was coming. My husband rarely cooks all week and he said that he was spending the day cleaning out the garage so he wouldn't be in the mood to cook. When asked me what I wanted I should have told him some version of a veggie pizza, but I didn't. When he came back with a Coke I should have put it in the fridge for another day. And I shouldn't have eaten as much as I did.

But it's one day. Just one day. Once in a while I can enjoy these things because SparkPeople is not a diet. I'm not going to give up everything I love because I will not succeed that way. I'm looking for moderation. I wasn't as moderate as I would have liked last night, but it was just one night.

    That's right - one meal does not mean you are failing. Looking for moderation is good. Perhaps over time we will 'choose' to give up something but right now rating a food as 'forbidden' will just make us want it more. emoticon

Day 4: Exhausted

Thursday, July 28, 2011

I had plans to do some activity last night. Not big things just something to get me moving a little but instead I fell asleep on the couch. It was a long day at work. This is where I have the biggest pitfalls in my program - after I get home from work and the kids are in bed I often just don't have the physical, or mental, energy to follow my program. I'll keep trying though.


Day 3: Where I Learn Something New

Wednesday, July 27, 2011

Apparently, potato salad has a lot more calories than I thought it did. I love potato salad. I could easily make a meal out of it. I thought I was giving myself a single serving (I was was) but 1 cup was still 300 calories! That surprised me. We're eating the leftovers tonight so I'll have to put less on my plate.

And I accidentily reset my program. I'm only a few days in so it's not a big deal but I was enjoying a pretty good streak with water drinking. And a pretty good streak of being within my calories goals. I'm having trouble with protein. I just can't seem to eat enough.
