Day Twelve

Saturday, January 12, 2013

I got back on track yesterday.....and even got nearly 11,000 steps on my pedometer. Today I have sciatica pain and will not be doing my treadmill walk, but we have a bunch of errands to do, so I guess I will still get some steps in, though not at as fast a pace. Tonight we are going to dinner at Olive Garden with some friends. As soon as I finish this blog entry I will be going to OG's website to get nutrition info so I can be ready to order wisely. Despite the pain in my leg, today I feel I can maintain control. I keep telling myself that all I need to do is get through today and can worry about tomorrow tomorrow. emoticon

  Woke up with backpain also this morning. Got it under control quickly with some pain relievers and Aspercreme pain rub.
Read a great Blog from yesterday by indygirl. You might like to read it. She is really suffering a huge amount of maladies but still says so upbeat. Let me know what you think.
Planning Olive Garden on Friday but will do the Soup and Salad and a taste of Andy's whatever.
Good luck for a better day painwise.

Day Eleven

Friday, January 11, 2013

Yesterday was an extremely stressful day and I fell apart during the evening, eating too much and eating things that trigger my appetite for junk food. I feel angry at myself for letting that occur, but have gotten back in the right frame of mind this morning. I am going to the Y and intend to burn off some of the extra calories I consumed yesterday as I walk on the treadmill. This is such a struggle day by day, but I know the only way I can make any progress is to do it just that way - day by day! emoticon

    One day at a time, you can do it.
Eventually it will settle down and smooth out because when you blog you really remember things BETTER.

Writing it down, good or bad helps you to make Affirmations that will guide you to better habits,now you have shared it just hop back on track. emoticon emoticon

YOU can do it, it just takes time and training HUGS Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon

  sometimes getting mad at your self is a good thing, pushes you back in gear the next day, and reminds you how bad you feel when not eating right.

Day Nine

Wednesday, January 09, 2013

I am still on track! I had a great afternoon taking care of and playing with our nearly three year old grandson and avoided snacking on cookies when I gave him. That is a feat, as I usually give myself one when I dole one out to a grandchild. I was very tired again today and did not exercise, which makes me feel guilty, but I know I would not have been up to the activity of a toddler if I had forced myself to get even more tired through exercise - not an excuse today, just a reality!

Day Eight

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

Today is going to be difficult - I did not sleep well and am sooooooo tired! These are the types of things that make me less mindful and out of control, but I am going to fight the urge to "cure" my exhaustion with sugar and intend to stay on course today! emoticon

    I am the same way when tired-- for some reason, eating more to overcome fatigue is more appealing than actually taking a nap. Need to give in to the nap rather than the food!

You can do it!

    Thanks to all of you for your support and encouragement! I ended up taking a nap and not getting to the Y - but feel much better and know that the rest of the day will be right on track. emoticon

    Being aware of when you might be tempted to give in is a great tool to help you stay strong and on track. Good for you for knowing yourself and good luck in facing the challenges of the day!

    Good for you!

Sometimes when I feel unmotivated I read some SparkPeople articles and comment on other member blogs. It helps give me a few minutes to re-focus on my goals and to see that I'm not alone in my struggles.

SparkPeople is here for you!

Maybe instead of today being difficult, it will be a day when you are reminded just how strong you really are.

Day Seven

Monday, January 07, 2013

It is bitter cold this morning, but I will ignore that excuse - y'know the one about not wanting to go out in cold weather - and go to the Y for my daily exercise in a little bit. I got things back under control yesterday and know that today will be a good one, too. emoticon
