I would do so well without the damn sweets. I cannot leave them alone. I cannot have them in my house. They call to me; they tempt me...I cave.
I will be so thankful when this birthday cake is gone. So. Thankful.

So, do I do low carb? high protein? juice fasts? the O2 diet? Flat Belly?...round and round and round I thought - all the choices, all the differences... WHAT SHOULD I DO???
And then a moment of realization came. Nothing drastic. Nothing that I cannot maintain for extended periods. Focus on quality - not carbs, proteins, not fasting, not juices - just tons of fruits and veggies, lean proteins (non-animal are better, but I am thinking about one 'meat day' per week if I have a craving). Focus on moving more - exercise - getting strong and limber. This is about changing my life for the better, not about 'dieting.'
Sometimes simple is best.

Start, stop, start, stop, start again. Should I do vegetarian or high protein or high protein vegetarian? How do I find the motivation to start exercising again and stick with it? Are walks with the boys considered exercise and should I do more when I am walking 1.5-2 hours a day (well, obviously because the weight isn't budging so much).
Time again to start logging my food intake, my exercise, and trying to find some way to get this going down again...
I think I can; I think I can; I think I can!

Well, I guess that it is a good time to try to get all of those nasty toxins out of my body, so I am going with a supplement program, plus diet, plus perhaps a couple of lymphatic drainage messages during the week if I can. Here's to hoping that this is a good 'kick start' to becoming much healthier!
Aside from this week, I would like to become much more conscientious about just what I am putting into my body. That means cooking from scratch much more often, using Bio (organic) foods, limiting prefab foods, perhaps even either giving up meat or limiting it to once a week or so.

Well, today is my first day back to SparkPeople and second (I think) in Austria again! LOL - the time zone change and day loss has me a bit confused. I did not do half as bad as I thought I would when I was home...I gained ZERO, despite having one of Chicagoland's best pizzerias more than one day, Hostess snacks, KFC, McRib...barf - looking at my list makes me a bit embarrassed! I am sad, though, that DQ was not open in the area - I would have LOVED a Blizzard!
Well, my Dad's condition is not great but not so bad. He has prostate cancer that mestatised (sp?) into his spine and shoulder - that is why we went to the States for such a brief visit - to see him with my own eyes, to bring the kids for him to hang out with (Edgar is just 13 weeks old now, so that was their first meeting and they became good buds). What I am reading about the disease is not so optimistic, but his treatment plan looks to be on the lighter side for now (unless I am misunderstanding things) -chemo has been delayed, hospice is not involved... He looks pretty good and seems to have a great attitude, but I wish he would eat better and at least cut down on the smoking (and do some Tai Chi instead of reading about it and just watching the videos).
I finally broke down and cried about it. Part of me is big on the fact that EVERYONE dies and it is just a normal part of life - perhaps a transition into a different plane of living or ??? - definitely nothing to cry about. I have to shrug my shoulders because I am at a loss for words. I didn't want to cry about it, and I still don't because he is still here, there are so many survivors and miracles, I like to celebrate life instead of being somber about something I simply don't understand enough to know whether or not it should be something to cry about or rejoice about - but it is still stressful, confusing, SCARY. OK - going to go do some cardio because my eyes are filling with tears and I don't have so much more to say right now.
