The tough bit

Tuesday, November 04, 2008

I do well eating healthy when I am by myself for breakfast and lunch. But, when I join my friends for dinner, I tend to lose it. Not eating bad things, necessarily, but eating a lot of whatever there is. So, new goal; eat smaller portions.

When its just jazz and me home we do great about eating. but as soon as 1 or 2 other family memebers come home, thats it.. i'm a bit better with just us girls, but when jay comes home... i dont know... i think its kind of a comfort thing, you're with friends/family, all enjoy food and... you eat...
i applod you on your goal! emoticon
Great Job sweetie!

Feeling Good

Friday, October 31, 2008

My main goal at this point is to get back into an exercise routine. For the last two days I have exercised - not much, but something. The best part is how good it makes me feel strong. And, I find when I exercise, I don't want to eat things that aren't so good for me. It's not even not wanting to undo my hard work. I just prefer healthier foods when I get the exercise I need. I find exercise is also a great motivator for me. The more I do it, the more I want to do it. So, the hard part at this point is not doing too much. I don't want to burn out before I get going.

How it goes

Wednesday, October 29, 2008

I think I've been trying to change too much lately. I seem to want everything to be better RIGHT NOW! So, I've decided to ease up a bit. For instance, I only did about 20 minutes of strength training today, most of it on my arms. Normally, I would be telling myself I should have done the whole forty five minutes. But, I've decided instead to give myself a pat on the back for getting any exercise at all. I'm trying to take a similar approach to my eating. Instead of telling myself I'm not "good" because my eating isn't perfect, I will congratulate myself for the healthy things I am doing. It's my hope that this will be a motivational approach for me.

Been a While

Friday, January 18, 2008

Been a while since I've been active on the site. I tend to fall off when I am sick. Thanks to unusually cold weather and co-workers who came to work with stuff that makes the flu look like a walk in the park, I've been sick pretty much for the last month. On the upswing now, though, and hope to get myself back on track soon.

Another Weekend

Sunday, October 28, 2007

So, here it is. Sunday. Not bad, diet wise. I still have dinner to eat yet, but I think I just might stay within my calorie range today. I won't beat myself up if I go a bit over, though.

Saturday I was over, but I kinda planned for that. You almost have to allow yourself to go over when a friend makes home made truffles. Boy, were they good!

Got my exercise in today. Also did some work on my little house. Got the last couple of tiles glued down, put up some molding, caulked some floor tiles in the bed room, and put up some make shift curtains (a temporary measure until I get the bedroom decorated). Overall, not bad, I'd say.
