weeks reflections

Monday, November 19, 2012

Lost another 2 lbs. Due to measure next week. Totally surprised that i have ate less on the past 2 weekends than i do during the week. Even Saturday when i took a day off i ate less. The biggest difference i see is not getting enough protein. Calories are close, only went above calorie goals once. Nutritionally not as good on weekends. I think this is due to poor planning and just eating what i have around.


off day

Saturday, November 17, 2012

Decide to reward myself with a day off. Did not worry about diet at all. No exercise. Did record my food and water intake and do my spark points. Just wanted to relax and not worry about anything today. Back on track tomorrow.


movie night

Friday, November 16, 2012

Had a girls night out with my daughter and granddaughter. Managed to stay on track when dining out. I had planned for the meal so that went well. When we entered the movie and I smelled that popcorn I would have been stopped in my tracks except for my daughter. She reminded me how I had just ate and could not be really hungry. I realized how right she was. It was just a mental need for the popcorn and not physical. I made it through the movie without the popcorn and the sense of accompolishment was much better than the popcorn would have been.

Today my tracking really opened my eyes to the fact that I had no clue how much food I was eating. I woke up hungry and went to IHOP for breakfast telling myself I would just eat less the rest of the day. I did get egg beaters instead of real eggs and only ate half of them and only ate 2 or 3 bites of hash browns. That said I did go home and walk 2.5miles in my neighborhood which has some really good size hills. Of course I was hungry when I got home and ate a snak. Next came a nap. Don't know what happened to me I NEVER NEVER take naps. I just feel asleep on the couch. It was time to cook dinner for the family. It was salad, sauté chicken in olive oil spray, mac and cheese made without butter or milk and only 1/4 the cheese, mashed potatoes and cornbread. That said I knew I was in trouble so ate my salad before the rest of the meal was done. Than I rationalized to myself well if I just eat 1/4 cup of mashed potatoes and the mac and cheese I will at least not have pigged out. By this time I wanted to cry. Thinking oh well today is a bust I might as well eat the cornbread too. After all this I decided I would at least track what I ate. I did measure everything I ate so tracking was easy. I used the high end of everything because I was going to be honest with myself if it killed me. Imagine my surprise when I was totally on plan. On other diets I would not have tracked what I ate because I didn't want to know how bad I failed. Thank GOD I decided to be honest with myself and keep my goals in front of me or else I would have just given up again. Yes I could have made much better choices for weight loss, but the point is I DID NOT QUIT. That's a first for me after eating like that.


hunger strikes

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

Had a busy morning and did not eat as much as usual. Really did not feel hungry at all but than I had to sit for 3 hours waiting for an appointment and was starving. Started to go to fast food restaurant than remembered that I just went shopping yesterday so had plenty of food at home, that could be prepared quickly. Drank 2 glasses of water and cooked my dinner. Yea God for helping me through the temptation and Yea Spark for helping me to be ready for these little emergencies
