Goodbye

Monday, May 31, 2010

I got back from seeing both of my daughters - a little earlier than I wanted to. But they both have to work, so I had to let them bring me home. I did't want to say goodbye. My youngest is going back to Michigan tomorrow. I will be moving up there in a couple weeks so I will have to leave my oldest daughter in Alabama with her husband. My husband is in a crabby mood and not helping me cheer up at all. i don't think he realizes I'm sad. But, I will find stuff to do and continue on my exercising today. I've got a book from the library that I will start tonight.
I really could use some prayers today to get through the night.

  


Memorial Day - my first Spark People Holiday

Monday, May 31, 2010

I made it through Memorial Day eating right and getting my exercise in. I excercied a lot before I went to my daughter's house for a barbecue. Thank goodness she tries to eat healthy too! The burgers were turkey burgers. I did eat mine with a bun, but no cheese and mustard instead of ketchup. She had veggies sitting out. I steered clear of the chips and just had some veggies. We all went out and played a little basketball afterwards, so that made me feel better about eating the bun.
I was reading someone's blog, and something she said hit home. Most family gatherings DO center around the food. I am making a conscious decision right now to contribute a food that fits in my meal plan. I will not stand by the food with others and subconsciously pick at the food. And I will get the family to do one active thing toge ther. (or whoever in the family wants to do it.)
I'm lucky enough to have a big, loving, and supportive family. They have encouraged me and cheered me on each time I was on a diet. I'm going to make Spark People a plan, not a diet. This will assist me to not let the weight slowly creep back up on me.

  


Cornithians

Sunday, May 30, 2010

I think everyone has heard the passage from this book that begins "love is kind, love is patient, love is never boastful.." But do you think you apply this to your everyday life? I try to, but I know I need to work on it more.

  


Excited

Sunday, May 30, 2010

I am excited today. My youns gest daughter came down from Michigan to spend a couple days with us. Yesterday was "sisters day". My daughters just wanted to spend the day with each other, I am so glad that they do this. They are very close and that means a lot to me.

Today, we'll be going over to Sarah's for a barbecue. This will be my first time eating at some other place than home. I'm a little nervous as to how I will be able to do. Remember my willpower!

I'm also anxious to see if anyone noticed that a few pounds have come off. My husband really is around me too much and doesn't notice. That bums me a little that he hasn't said anything. He knows how hard I have been trying. Oh, well! I'm doing this for me anyway.

Wish me luck to keeps eating and excercising the next couple of days. I don't thing I will get as much exercise as I would like to. But, it is a holiday weekend. I will try harder the rest of the week to make up for lost time.











  


Meal planning

Saturday, May 29, 2010

I didn't like my first week's reports. Starting today, I am making a conscious effort to think more about what I eat. I want to try to sit down and plan meals for a whole day. Maybe after some practice, I will be able to plan means for more than one day at a time. My goal is to be able to have meal plans for a whole week. Then, I can use these plans to make my grocery list and be able to stick to it. Lofty goals for a newbie, but i know I have to start learning if I am going to be able to make lifestyle changes.
