I am slipping

Monday, September 23, 2013

Ughhh! I am so slipping. I just want to cry. I don't want this. I am huge! I looked at myself in the mirror and thought, you are the size of two people. I am so tired. I have no energy. I just want to cry.

    So sorry that you are struggling. I have been also. I am encouraged today however. The Lord is in control of all that goes on in our lives. Break up your day into small segments. You have a lot on your pile with all those little ones to care for. You can trust Jesus to help you get the strength to stand up and fight. Just start with ten minutes. Write me and let me know when you have done 10 mins of some form of exercise. Any kind. and find a way to drink your water. You can do this.

    I can do this. Yes, I have had a set back, but I am very, very tough, and I can do this!

Thanks! emoticon

Nervous About Change

Friday, August 16, 2013

I am ready to make a commitment to eat better and exercise. I am scared. These past few years I have been holding my own, but I am ready to take it to next level (I think). I am scared to try. I am scared thinking about sacrifice. I am scared that I won't succeed when I really want to. I don't want to give up my comfort food, but I am trying to change that attitude.

Scared. emoticon

    I know it's been a few days - how are things going? Just remember not to treat every slip like it's the end - it's just a slip. Keep moving forward, you can do this!

    Tanya, I understand you fear, and want to encourage you to embrace it. Allow it to feed you. You will overcome it.
Take baby steps.
Don't expect everything to be perfect over night.

And you do not need to give up your favorite foods, just enjoy them in moderation. Less at a time and less frequently.

You can do this. You are a strong woman.

    You have already taken the first step by declaring that you are ready to make a commitment emoticon

Try not to think of it as giving up stuff; but giving yourself, your family, and God the best He has given you.

The hardest part for me, I found, was making the commitment. For a long time, I just didn't want to. And the only thing I gave up was amount. I had a Skinny Cow the other night (140 calories) but I had factored that into my day so I could have it. I eat one Dove Dark Chocolate on occasion (42 calories), but don't pop the whole thing in my mouth and sometimes just let it slowly melt on my tongue - then I stop at the 1 because I know what going on will do to my body and I can't let that happen again for Kelly's sake - she needs me.

You CAN do this. Will you have bad days or even weeks? Sure. "In this world you will have trouble. But take heart I have overcome the world." John 16:33 NIV. Notice that He won't take our troubles away, but He is with us.

    That first step into the unknown, untested waters is always the scariest. Believe in yourself, you CAN do this! And you will have so much to be grateful for when you do succeed! emoticon

Running Around Like a Crazy Woman

Is anyone else ready for the steady rhythm that comes when the school bell rings?

    Hahaha! I used to be sad when summer ended and the kids went back to school, but I can see that it really does get things back into a predictable rhythm...

Ate my weight in cake and pudding

Every time that my little one is in the hospital, I just fall off of the wagon. I ate carrot cake, vanilla pudding, cookies, granola bars, and fast food for two whole days. Ughhhh!!!!!

    I am so sorry. Maybe you could stock up on nuts, healthy granola bars, fruit that you can take with you to the hospital for next time.
I eat cheese, and salty foods when I am stressed. Did it yesterday.

I hope your little one is doing better.

    Sorry that your munchkin is in the hospital. Can you pack snacks for yourself when you go to the hospital?

    I binged last night which I very, very rarely do. And I don't know why. Most would say it was emotional eating. But I don't know of any controlled emotions I had. I was sparking, so I wasn't bored: I wasn't angry, stressed, irritable or discontent. At least you know why! Be blessed with that knowlegdge. Knowledge is the key if you use that knowledge to affect change. You can start by not keeping those foods you have trouble with in the house.
You can forgive yourself and move on, You can take 2 positive steps for every misstep you take. Fill up on fiber and water; fill up on lean protein; drink lots of water: and eat 5 fruits and veggies today are a few things I'm gonna do today. Back to basics when I misstep. I treat today as day 1.

    emoticon Sorry that little one is in hospital. I can only imagine how stressful that is. Okay you overate...It happens to all of us. The main thing is to pick yourself back up and don't beat yourself up. Get back on the wagon asap.
