resisted temptation

Tuesday, August 02, 2011

Proud of myself again today. I had a meeting this evening, and when I was leaving work I was thinking that I really NEEDED to eat out, because it is a long way home (I live in the middle of nowhere) and I would just have to come back into town. Almost had myself convinced, then asked myself whether eating in town would be nearly as necessary if my only choices were to eat at home or eat at the hospital where I work (crappy food, exorbitant prices). Whaddaya know. I definitely could go home and make some supper after all. It was good, and I really enjoyed being able to veg for awhile before heading back into town.

    It's all about the choices! And every time you make a good one, it's easier to make the next good one... just that switching gears thing, one tiny cog at a time!

You are emoticon

It's not going to happen every day, but... I took off from work today, just because I could, and got going on my WiiFit (which is a lot of fun, by the way). I ended up doing 68 minutes, and 270 calories on it!! Woo Hoo!! I am so proud of myself. And BTW, this blogging thing is fun. Never did it before.

starting over again

Monday, August 01, 2011

OK, I'll admit it. I started SparkPeople (again) about a month ago, when I got a different, less stressful job, and promised myself that this time it was going to work. I immediately fell off the wagon( again), and am now getting started (once again) to try to lose all of this weight. My problem this last time, as in the past, is setting too many goals at once. I promised myself I was going to eat right, exercise, journal, and track every day, and make crockpot meals so I would have something good to take to work, and... and... and... You get the idea. So here I am, trying again. The theme here is "again". I've decided my one and only goal for the next week or two is to NOT eat out when I get off work (one of my major temptations, and expensive both in money and in calories). Come on, Oak, get with it. This time make it "never again."

    I understand what you mean about taking on more than you can handle. You are right to do one thing for a week or so and then add on. Good luck!

    Hang in there! Don't beat yourself up! Every day is a new day to start over... heck, every minute is a new minute to start over with.

The small goals become the big ones and there is where you build your success base!

    We all start over. Best of luck on reaching your goal with respect to eating out.

    I start over often! I've been working at this for over 4 years and I've probably started over a hundred times. It's better than not trying again. You can do it, even if you have to do it again and again!
