Day Six

Sunday, January 06, 2013

Yesterday was not the best day of this adventure - I did not do a good job of meal planning and ended up over my calorie goal and consumed way too much sodium. The sodium made itself evident on the scale this morning emoticon - but today is a new day and I have resolved to make this one a better planned day. I was tired this morning, so only spent 30 minutes on the treadmill - BUT, I did get on it despite thinking of many excuses as to why I couldn't!

Day Five

Saturday, January 05, 2013

Woke up early today and feel good about managing the day's eating. Last night I made a little cake as a treat for my husband who had a painful medical procedure - and loves sweets (and has NO weight problem!). I ate a 1/16 of the 8"X8" cake which was only 142 calories and 22 grams of carbs - and I was still under my calorie goal! It was very satisfying - and the first sweet that I have eaten since January 1st. Getting ready to go to the Y to exercise now. emoticon


Day Four

Friday, January 04, 2013

Okay, I am on a roll and am feeling positive about my ability to keep on track. (Noras_pat, I have been giving myself a nice red checkmark on the calendar at the end of each successful day, so I guess we think alike!) I just cam back from the Y where I walked on the treadmill for 50 minutes, increasing the incline with each quarter mile completed - I did that yesterday also and sure can feel the effects of that small incline today! (Queen Moxie, please add me as a friend. I wish you a wonderful day, too.) (Pixielicious - love your name - thanks for all the emoticons; they made me smile.)


Day Three

Thursday, January 03, 2013

Okay, I have managed two days without any mindless eating. Today I am going to add to that. I am living this weight loss journey one day at a time and I KNOW I can manage that!

    Go put yourself a star on your calendar to remind you haw well you are doing. It is a great motivator when you want to get it right. Once you feel or see a difference that too is a good motivator. HUGS Pat .I had to bet up could not stop coughing now I need to get back to bed / Pat emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Day One Completed

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

Well, I made it through the first day of the year more successfully than I anticipated - allowed myself one treat - a piece of banana bread - with my evening tea, but did not indulge in any other goodies. This was feat, since I spent the morning with my grandson making soft pretzels, which I LOVE. I did not eat any of them and put them all in a tin for him to take home to share with his family. I have committed to make changes one day at a time and feel good about day one!

    That is what we have to do, take it one day at a time and try to get it right. If you do not get it right one day, NEVER GIVE UP!

RESOLVE to do better the following day. (((HUGS))) Pat in Augusta. emoticon not eating the pretzels. I make banana bread with half the sugar and half the oil. I cook with canola oil, it works great for muffins and breads. I use a mini muffin tin and put the bread recipe in 24 mini muffins. I freeze them and one of those goes great as a treat. I never use the baking cases I just freeze them in a plastic container. Once they are frozen I bag then in zip-locks for easy access. HUGS Pat in Augusta emoticon emoticon I am getting a late start on this years goals. HEALTH at this time is more important than getting it exact. (((HUGS))).
