Christmas is coming and how do you say NO

Thursday, December 03, 2009

So with Christmas coming and all the goodies that need to be baked How are do you say NO! I have a big problem disappointing people. I can disappoint myself but others is hard. I don't want to bake to year because I know that I have very little self control when it comes to food. My children love homemade cookies and deserts that come along with the Christmas season. I don't know how to make the recipes healthier I am the kinda person who bakes according to the recipe. Any ideas would be appreciated.

    I bake and try to give most of it away. I have a refrigerator in the garage and that's where some of the goodies go. It's an out of sight, out of mind, thing that works for me. I try not to make my favorite treats and most of the rest doesn't tempt me.

Instead of baking, try putting together flavored oils or baking kits (ingredients and instructions) to give to people to use or make for themselves.

Gained two pounds

Tuesday, December 01, 2009

emoticon Last week i had lost two pounds and today I stepped on the scale and had gained those pesky pounds back. It has been a stressful week , family problems and not eating enough or eating to much of the wrong thing. I worry that the amount of calories that I am suppose to eat is wrong. I still exercised and I am challenging my self with new goals. I am not going to fall into the previous trap that since I gained the weight back that I should just give up and not try again. I have followed that route before and it has only made me more miserable. This week I will pick myself up, dust myself off and try, try again. I know with the support of all the from Spark people I can do it.

Started 7 day boot camp

Monday, November 30, 2009

Started the 7 day boot camp as a way to deal with stress and a way to motivate myself towards a healthier life style. Family stresses can be hard when trying to loose weight. Just trying to point myself in the right direction. I will get there this time it will take patience and understanding and a willingness to forgive myself for any slip ups that occur along the way. I cannot just say oh well I messed up so why bother. This time I am bothering. I am worth it. I am.

Sad Day

Sunday, November 29, 2009

My sister is having problems with her marriage that is a reminder of problems that I had with mine. She will be fine eventually just as I was. But food is too much of a comfort for me. I have gone off my diet such as it is the stress and having my baby sister cry is painful . I accepted the mini challenge for the week and that should help temper the stress of wanting to eat and eat to deal with the stress. I want to make a new goal of doing the 7 day boot camp and continuing the other exercises that I do.

    You have to be strong for your little sister and keep it together for her.

    Tell your sister I send her hugs and support. It's so hard to go through marriage problems. It is easy to want to turn to food when you are having marriage stress. You are on the right course by going to the boot camp. You're a good sister who really cares.
