A hope for all Sparkers this week!!!!!
When you've eaten too much and you can't write it down,
And you feel like the biggest failure in town.
When you want to give up just because you gave in,
and forget all about being healthy and thin.
So What! You went over your points a bit,
It's your next move that counts...So don't you quit!
It's a moment of truth, it's an attitude change.
It's learning the skills to get back in your range.
It's telling yourself, "You've done great up till now.
You can take on this challenge and beat it somehow."
It's part of your journey toward reaching your goal.
You're still gonna make it, just stay in control.
To stumble and fall is not a disgrace,
if you summon the will to get back in the race.
But, often the struggler's, when loosing their grip,
Just throw in the towel and continue to slip.
And learn too late when the damage is done,
that the race wasn't over...they still could have won.
Lifestyle change can be awkward and slow,
but facing each challenge will help you grow.
Success is failure turned inside out,
the silver tint in a cloud of doubt.
When you're pushing to the brink, just refuse to submit,
If you bite it, you write it....But don't you quit!

I should have known that by that last entry, I was starting to head in the wrong direction. I hadn't been to my weight watchers meeting for 2 weeks now. Well, I decided that was enough and I needed to face the scale. I went to my meeting today, and I was up 1.8 lbs. That didn't surprise me at all, in fact, I thought it would be more.
I'm back onto my points today. This week, my focus is not only going to be on my points, but also health. I was proud of myself today. I stopped at McDonald's at the request of my daughter. Plus, it was pretty late and she needed lunch. My tummy was just rumbling, but I decided to pass. I came home and made me a green smoothie for lunch.
After, I jumped on my elliptical for 1/2 hour and as soon as I'm done typing this I'm going to go jump on my bike for 1/2 hour too.

Do you ever have days where you just seem to feel sorry for yourself? I'm not even sure if that's the way to put it. I seem to have hit a plateu and as much as I know I need to go on, it's really difficult to not emotionally eat.
I've chosen healthy foods (mainly homemade granola), but have found myself eating it out of frustration rather then hunger. I think now that it's closer to dinner, I'll go eat a big salad and then low cal. chili for dinner. Hopefully that will help smooth the day out.

Well it's day 4 on the Hallelujah diet. I've followed it to a T:) I'm thinking that I'm more hungry today, but then again maybe I'm not. I just go back and forth with myself of whether or not it's real hunger, and once again I don't think it is. I think it's nothing more then the weekend, and I'm not doing anything. So, maybe it's more boredom.
I'm making homemade granola today. Holy cow, it's the first time I've ever made it, and I can see now, no matter how healthy it is, I'll need to watch my intake on it. Yummy.
I'm loving my new juicer. Hubby thinks I'm nuts when I gave him a glass of carrot juice. He didn't like it that much. I guess I'm thankful that I really do.
I can picture myself being thin with this diet. I hope so much that I can continue with it. I was telling my hubby that in a couple of months, I'm not going to have a nonstop headache. He said, and I know if you do, there'll be no turning back. He knows my determination.

Well, my juicer came in yesterday, so I had hubby stop by the store and pick me up a bunch of carrots last night. I had my first glass of fresh carrot juice this morning. It was so yummy. This afternoon, I made another glass and then added celery to it. I read that celery is suppose to help curb the sweet tooth. I wish I had known about that a long time ago.
Anyhow, the only thing that I don't care for is the barley max that you take. Taste kinda like going out and grabbing a mouth full of grass. Not that I've ever done that, but that's what it seems like.
So far, since I'm off the coffee I don't feel any detox symptoms. Just my normal everyday headache.
Also, did 30 min. on my elliptical.
