I don't have to like it...

Tuesday, January 24, 2012

Last Tuesday I celebrated a 1.5 pound weightloss. I was happy. I was proud. I was a dumbass. Know what I celebrated with? A chocolate dipped donut from Tim Horton's. I didn't stop there either. On Saturday, I ate 4 mini cinnamon buns. On Sunday, I ate chocolate chip brownie bars (3) and other various not good for me baked goods. On Monday, I put the chocolate chip brownie bars out of their misery and finished them off (4). My reward: a 2 pound gain this week.

At first, I thought I might cry and then I realized - "You did this to yourself". SO! emoticon

    Ughhh so right there with and everyone else. I had a good day today, tomorrow scares me. That's my problem good day, bad day the following day. I gotta change that mind set. I was like Beth today as well. I had planned on getting on the treadmill this afternoon. Got home and said I"ll do it later...well took longer in the ortho office than usual and there went the time that could of been for treadmill. Truth is though, probably still wouldnt of done it had I been home...didnt feel like it.

    I allow myself small treats if I know I am going to be in calorie range. It's great motivation and staves off the urges. We are all in the boat with you. Good luck, you can get this done!

    I do this, too! I celebrate by eating. How self-sabotaging is that? Anyway, you've got a plan to put it past you and get back on track.

    Gosh, girl, I am right there with you!! Seems like every time I actually make a half step of progress, I just turn around and go overboard with "treats." Hope you find the strength to pick yourself back up, and tackle that unwanted weight with a VENGEANCE!! You can do it!

    Right there with you sister! I didn't over eat so much as I didn't exercise. I know they say 80/20 but darn it eating "ok" isn't enough! (grumble grumble) I have get all my water in and exercise too!

Don't worry girl, you'll get this...just mail that feed bag to JoPa! Let's do this!

    Sorry Penny. This is the type of blog I could just copy and paste into my blog. Sounds so familiar....but with different foods...same concept.

    Oh,Penny!!! you're not the only one who does this! I'm guilty,too which is why I'm liking not having a scale in the bathroom. I would be on it every day or more than once per day and if it was down,I'd eat something that wasn't good.
So, your goals are great. BAsic...when I'm diligent about tracking(for one day is all I can do) I don't eat anything I can't track. Then I talk myself out of tracking b/c how am I going to ALWAYS eat in this world if I don't know what/how much to track?
One day at a time. I'm glad to read this blog right now-I'm tempted to eat more of the popcorn I made for the 2 little ones' I won't. THANK YOU~~

Things that I could have done differently to NOT go over my calorie range:

2546-1730 = 816 over
-230 Mocha Latte
-170 Nestle cup
-320 Milk to go
-120 Baked Lays
= -24 *could* have been within range.
Lesson learned: I eat when I'm worried.

    Aw, I'm so sorry that you have to deal with this. Your best bet right now is to get informed. Don't worry about the what if's. Find out more so it's not such a ghost wandering in your brain. Hugs.

    That is a lot to deal with, but thankfully they found them. I know how easy it is to worry, but it won't add one day to your life, all it will do is steal joy. So snuggle someone or something furry :)

    Hi - I'm okay today BUT yesterday I saw the doctor after BodyPump to go over the results of my blood tests that I had on the 11th. When I went for the the ultrasound to see if my IUD was where it was supposed to be, they noticed polyps on my liver. Doc sent me for a blood test and they found that my enzymes were at 87. Apparently, they should be 40 or less. So now I have more blood tests to schedule... they're checking my liver, my thyroid, my cholesterol..... all the info I've read says "don't worry" but I've never been this poked or prodded and it's my NATURE to worry. I'm also going for a CT scan...or MRI...whichever they can get scheduled first.

Quick check-in

Thursday, January 19, 2012

It's Wednesday and Spark was already giving me trouble about going over my "calories burned" goal for the week so I reset that number tonight. I have burned an average of 1530 calories each week for the past two so I made it 1520 just to be sure. In turn, Sparkpeople gave me a new calorie range: 1,380 - 1,730 emoticon
My chart for today looks like this:

OH! and I had a *fabulous* run tonight!!

Water, fruit, veggies - all goals met today. emoticon
Tomorrow, I'll focus on my new calorie range.
