Making a commitment

Tuesday, September 04, 2012

I am trying to redo the way I live with food. Food is entertainment and a friend when I am bored, anxious and lonely. To be healthy and have more energy, food must play a smaller roll in my life. Cooking has been fun and a way infill up my time. But with husbands multiple health issues I have had to just stop and keep it plain and very simple. Food problems restrict our ability to go out to eat with friends which has made it difficult. Struggling to work this all through.

    Could you fix it 'plain and simple' and fix 'the works' on the side, assuming it would be healthy but 'more' than what he can eat? I hope it works out---that's a problem, I'm sure!

The truth about maintaining weight

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

Long term, those who ate more fruits and vegetables and less meat and cheese were more likely to sustain weight loss.
It is ultimately not your metabolism speed that determines if you are too heavy, experts say, but the amount you eat and how much activity you get.


Sleeping is elusive

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

Sleeping through the night is something I rarely am able to do. There are lists of do's and don'ts about getting to sleep and staying asleep, and I follow them all. But sleeping through the night is still a desire not a reality. The thoughts race through my mind which keep me from falling back asleep when I wake up in the middle of the night. I worry about the future, my daughter, my husband, the economy, things I have done in the past, being old and being alone. I am starting on a concerted effort to sleep better. Falling asleep is no problem, staying asleep is the issue. My first goal is to sleep for 5 hours each night. Then to extend the time a small amount each night. Sleeping is important and I feel my concentration slipping when I haven't had enough sleep.

Went out to dinner last night and didn't do too badly. One piece of bread and let H have the salad with dressing. I had chicken instead of steak but I did eat it all. Then we had ice cream. It doesn't really appeal to me but it looks very standoffish if I don't have some. The weight wasn't too bad today and I plan to make good choices today.

Tomorrow Monday, I want to do a 10 minute interval early in the morning. Hope I choose to do it.
Today is a sunny day


Another day another ounce

Sunday, July 22, 2012

The number on the scale is coming down slowly. That is good, but it is disheartening to look at all of the effort needed to get the number on the scale to move even a half pound. Everywhere I go there is food I would like to eat. But I remind myself that healthy is really the best way and this is going to help be stay in good shape. It would be so easy to give in and some times it takes all my mental strength to turn away. I remind myself this is my choice and it is what I want. Think I'll go have another piece of celery.
