Must stay focused

Sunday, August 24, 2014

Hurray, I lost a pound! I'm going to celebrate that and not chastise myself for not doing enough exercise or making better food choices that would have meant I could have lost more. I am in this for the long haul and need to be able to sustain what I'm doing. This time I will be content with slow and steady progress even if it takes me longer to get there. I WILL get there. I know that tracking food and exercise works. I know I need to find lower fat alternatives to what I am eating--I am close to that 30% of daily calories from fat so it shouldn't be too hard to cut 5-6%. I am encouraged and I am proud of myself for taking control of my life.

    Great post! I'd be happy losing just one more pound too. That's all it takes, one at a time, over and over again!

Plugging along

Thursday, August 21, 2014

Busy week at work. Did manage to get in a few walks, took the stairs all but once. I didn't see but a tiny bit of progress on the scale--and maybe that was wishful thinking but I'm not giving up. I just have to stick with it. It will happen.

Week one of the return

Saturday, August 16, 2014

What went well--took the stairs again and it is getting easier. I hit my targets for carb/fat/protein distribution and stayed within calorie range. It's Friday. I am really hoping to see results on the scale tomorrow--but if I don't, I'm not giving up. I got the toilet unplugged after hubby gave up on it (profanities, temper flaring and door slamming). He rarely blows his top but when he does.....just wait for the dust to settle. I, on the other hand, remained cool, calm and collected. And the Seahawks looked very good tonight. All in all, a very good day.

Day I don't know in first week

Friday, August 15, 2014

I turned down cake at work. I used part of my break time for walks. I took the stairs. I got on the treadmill instead of the computer before dinner even though it was still a little too hot and humid. It feels good to be making wiser choices.

Day 5 I think

Tuesday, August 12, 2014

What went well...I took the stairs at work all but one time. I used the elliptical on my morning break. I had water instead of a latte. Portions controlled, calories within limits. Flossed my teeth every day since going to the dentist last week. I am really hoping to see results on the scale at next weigh-in. Even if I don't---I believe I am starting to feel a little better. I know I am doing the right things.
