Three Day Weekend Over.....:(

Monday, July 05, 2010

Another lovely three day weekend almost over. They go by so fast. I really didn't get much accomplished. I did get a little rest. I am back on track with the dietary portion of my plan. I am not as strict as I have been in the past. I don't want to get discouraged. It just makes it that much harder not to quit. I am not going to quit but it is always nice for things to be going well enough that it isn't even a passing thought. I went for a pedicure this afternoon. My toe that I broke didn't even twinge so I suppose it is healed. I am never going to do that again (if I can help it). It hurt for weeks until it healed. I continued doing my exercises but my form was questionable at best on a couple of the moves. I am going to wrap it up and plan this weeks lunches for work. I find that it is a little easier if I have it in my head what I am having. There seems to be less temptation that way.

    Were you exercising in the heels that are pictured here? (smiling) I thought that's how you hurt your toe. I just packed up 10 pair of new shoes for charity. My bad angel was argueing with my good angel, "but maybe you'll wear them someday." (smiling) I've been a shoe person as well, but less so these days. No more hurt toes, okay?

Time to pay the piper!

Sunday, July 04, 2010

I knew there would be a pound or two to pay for my indulgences last week. I always make my official weight day one of the weekend days. I sleep late those day so my weight is at it's lowest. Well not yesterday or today. I am not upset about it really. I knew exactly what I was doing. I did learn a couple things.
1. I didn't feel very good physically after I overate or ate fudge.
2. I almost immediately asked myself, "What the hell are you doing?"
3. I knew there would be a price to pay but it didn't seem to matter at that point.
I have been an emotional eater my entire life. I just went and found a team to join to address this. It will help having others who face the same challenge but ultimately I have to beat this alone. This is as close as I have come to an addictive disorder. I suppose it is. My other addiction is much more fun....shoes. This one I am going to address head on. The shoes....I enjoy that addiction too much to let it go. Hey I have to keep some vice!!

Hello Holiday Weekend

Saturday, July 03, 2010

I am so glad it is a three day weekend. It has been a rough year at work and I am extremely grateful for any day away from the office. I was not very strict this week week with calories. I had a bad week in that regard. I am not upset about it. I am 50 and will have more than one week or so with not so smart eating over the next few years. I am okay with that. I did do all of my exercise plan this week. I am going to be especially diligent when it comes to that if my dietary goals are a little off. It is a more holistic approach to my life than I have tried before. I am trying to figure this all out as I go instead of waiting until I am at goal and failing again. That is something I have always known but never applied until now. Maybe it is Spark People or being older and not wanting to do this again in a year or so. Either way I am going to do it this time. I have always needed to and that never was enough. I have always wanted to and that wasn't enough either apparently. Now is my time. I know it and I am going to do it. Life is a highway. I'm gonna ride it. (Tom Cochrane song lyrics)

Some days are more fun than others!

Friday, July 02, 2010

Yesterday I found out I will have to work over the holiday weekend. One of the guys I work with is on vacation and was supposed to take his laptop with him to manage a huge project. He forgot it and didn't want to turn around an run back home to get it because he was already 15 minutes from his house. I am trying to piece together what it is that I am supposed to be doing but without any details from him everyone may be very displeased with the way the weekend goes. I usually can wing it but this is a much bigger project than a normal day. I will do my best and pray everything works out okay. I didn't have any official plans but now I will have to be around the house most of the time. Hopefully it will be at least a little restful. My goal is for everything to run so smoothly no one will realize it was me behind it. I haven't decided what payback to use but I have time to figure that out. ;-) I am having some issues staying on track with eating lately. I am not doing too bad but I am not doing my normal calorie intake. I seem to be up by 300 calories a day for about a week. I am going to concentrate on getting back down this weekend. I am so close I really don't want to loose the momentum I have had the past few weeks. We shall see how that works out. I also am not planning on any serious deprivation at this point. I am enjoying my successes and don't relish the idea of making it miserable. That just entices me to be even worse. I had better run. I have a lot to do to get ready for the work I will be doing over the weekend. At least it isn't supposed to be too hot in ABQ this weekend.

Having a good week....not really...just a meltdown in my emailbox!

Thursday, July 01, 2010

I can't believe I didn't post a blog message yesterday. I was so busy at work and tired after I got home I completely forgot. At least I got my workout in yesterday morning before everything went to hell. I had an issue with my email at work and by the time it was fixed I had 207 emails from the last 4 days that did not make it into my email box. I was up until 11PM trying to get them all double checked to make sure everything was done. I am finishing up the last few this morning. I only have 2 more to do. I had some uncontrolled eating yesterday afternoon. I am not going to beat myself up about it but it is a red flag that I am still going to have to work on emotional eating. I was tried, didn't feel good and had just had a ton of work dumped on me from cyberspace. I had chocolate and a breakfast burrito for dinner. Also some sugarless candy that I thought would keep me on the straight and narrow. Oh well at least I know that it is still going to be an issue. Part of the solution is figuring out the problem and that I have done. I have know about this issue for years. It is part of the reason I had a weight problem in the first place. It hurts no one but myself. I did exercise this morning so I am back on the band wagon. I am really looking forward to the 3 day weekend. It will be a welcome break for the doldrums of work and stress at work. Speaking of work, I had better get back at it. I am almost caught back up. I just thought I was having a great week....silly wabbit!
