Blah Blah Blah!

Tuesday, January 06, 2009

I don't know what was going on with me today! I have been drinking my water but I have been so hungry! I stayed within my Calorie range not by very much though. But What I ate! I finally had to shut the TV off grab a glass of water and close myself in the office. I have been reading through some threads and find I am not the only one in this position. thank goodness I exercised today!

    i am starting to sound like an echo..keep saying this to anyone i meet because it worked so well for me. Try the v10 soup recipe i have on my blog. it is from the hungry girl cook book and a cup is only 60 calories and 1 gram of fat i believe..and very filling. plus you get a chunk of your veggies in for the day. i always add 2 cups to my nutrition sheet in the morning and eat it when ever that day..usually in evening when i know i will be looking for something.

    I agree with NEEDPEOPLE. Try to eat a filling snack such as an apple, celery with peanut butter, or air popped popcorn with a full bottle/glass or water. Being hungry will eventually go away, just hang in there. I felt that way when I first got back on track after the holidays but it is finally gone.

    I try to eat filling snacks. An apple with some peanut butter fills me pretty well and keeps me satisfied. Whole grain bread is a good source too. I hope this helps. For me it is a matter of eating filling healthy foods. Hang in there. It will get and be better before you know it. Some food tweeks will fix you right up.

Today I did 70.5 min. on the treadmill. This is only the second time I have gotten past 45 min. I was so tempted to quit at that point but I just kept on walking, then 48 min came up and wow I had my second wind. So I kept going. I am so proud of myself!

I remember when I would come home from work (back in 2003 and before) I would stop off at the store to pick something up for supper and I was in physical pain. What I bought was not good nor healthy for me. I just wanted to eat. I know I was numbing the physical pain and the emotional pain. I was so lonely. I felt like I was on a deserted island and I would never see the ship passing by. I felt I had no one. I felt I was not a lovable person. Who would want me.

I had an incident hit me that shook me to my very being. I knew I needed help to get out of that ugly place. I called to make an app. with a counselor. I knew I did not have the tools to dig myself out. After seeing him I felt so good, so relieved I wasn't crazy and that these things happen to other people but they seem to know how to handle the situation.

I learned that when I am in a bad emotional place I do know what my limits are and that I can reach out for help. Today I would be willing to ask someone for help, my sister, my niece who is so knowledgeable and understanding, or call on a professional. I don't want to be that other person. What do I consider emotional eating? Today it would be different from back in the day. Would it be more than a bag of potato chips or a huge bowl of ice cream? That is something I need to figure out. I do not think I have done any emotional eating since I retired and moved back home. I have and know I have people that love me. I can go to anyone of them and say most anything without fear of seeing that look in their eye. The look saying what the hell is wrong with this woman.

    Wow Susie, I so totally understand what you are saying here. I have felt the same way so many times in my life. I am really glad that you have people who are being THERE for you, it makes such a difference. Now I have my husband (3rd marriage) and he is a great guy, very supportive. I am finally (after 8 years with him) learning to let go and let him into my head and it is really helping. Though I am new to the site, it is fantastic with great people who inspire me, LIKE YOU!

    I am really glad to heat that you have found that you DO have people who always did love you no matter what. Those type of people are the most important in a weight loss journey. Keep working hard and trusting in those you love and who love you.

Last Chance Workout!

Tuesday, October 28, 2008

I feel a little bit nervous about tomorrow's weigh-in. I feel so fat right now. I feel like I didn't do enough exercise. I should walk longer etc. It will be what it is. I can't change that. I don't want to be obsessive about this.
I was on my computer and realized it was 3:50 pm. I jumped up grabbed my sweater, gloves, stocking hat and scarf ran out the door and grabbed a rake. I thought this is my last chance work-out! I raked for an hour and 25 min. I must admit I did a very nice job but then I looked at my watch and had to push the leaves in a pile. I had to go to a meeting but first I needed to eat supper! I felt like it was crunch time! I promised my sister I would make some southwestern quesidilla which is a very good recipe I got from Spark people, and some vegetable couscous, another great SP recipe. I have run out of fuel. I am on empty. I had to drag myself from the meeting. I got no energy to make any food. Sorry Becky. I will make it in the morning so you have some food to take with you to work. I must go to bed now to get some rest for tomorrow. emoticon

    Sounds like a busy day! I can relate (had one today myself). It's one thing after another. All we can do is try to manage our time better tomorrow. I am sure that you will do well on your weigh in, since it sounds like you have been working hard.
