My Confession

Wednesday, October 09, 2013

After reading a blog from a fellow dawgger, I feel inclined to have my own little confession. I've already confessed to being a yo-yoer, but I'm also a pre-diet binger. The 5% Fall Challenge starts on Saturday, and I know I won't be logging things, or counting things, or looking at nutritional values until then. I know most of them anyway, and I know what's good for me and what's bad for me. I'm on a vacation from work, but it's more like a staycation. I'm trying to acclimate to my husband's new job, which has me awake at weirder hours than normal, and I work graveyard shift! I know what I need to do for the challenge, but the hard part for me is after the challenge is over. I know there will be another one about a month later, but I'm afraid I'll yo-yo again during the month "off". My follow-through can be horrible and I'm hoping I make enough friends here on SP to help me stay in line. With my husband at work when I wake up, I need to learn how to cook for myself, cook HEALTHY stuff, and not burn myself out. Phew! Bigger confession than I thought! Have a good day!

    Hey Lady A, you can totally do this. Think of it as a lifestyle change, not just a diet or a challenge. Take each little thing and see how you can incorporate it into your every day routine, not just something to do for 8 weeks. If you don't think something is sustainable then try to start it as a "watered down" version. Start with what you think you could sustain and worry about building that up later. Every little thing will help. You will get lots of support from here. Promise. Stay honest with yourself and you will be alright. emoticon

Triggers and Motivation

Monday, October 07, 2013

So, I need to write out what my triggers are for unhealthy eating. Stress is a big one. Stress from work, stress from marriage. Combine alcohol with that and it's pretty much over. I tend to turn to carbs for my comfort food.

Motivation! My motivation is to get healthy and live a long life.
