You fall, you get back up and do it again.

Saturday, May 03, 2014

That's what I tell myself anyways. Although, for breakfest, I didn't make a good choice. I guess it was out of guilt??

Son had friend stay over, I was up early and made my healthy breakfest. Boy's got up, cooked like crazy, ( I think they were feeding an army). And they set a plate for me. Told them I had eaten. BUT then, the biscuits they made looked so good and they were dissapointed I didn't eat with them, can figure it out from there. I am sure that if I hadn't finally sat down and had a biscuit, they wouldn't have cared...but it is what it is. At least, I didn't include butter or gravy on the biscuit. AND I can work this off.

This leads into the past few days, my lack of motivation. I have been doing my walking, but not controlling my urges to eat in the evening. AND not healthy stuff either. SO I kick myself in
the butt now, and move on, It's happened, it's over, I have been honest, and now it's time to move on!

Lesson? we all make mistakes, bad choices and decisions. It's just life, and changing a life style of habits is not an easy task. I am happy with what I have accomplished so far, and wouldn't be human if I didn't expect some bumps in the road. Also, if it's not in the house, it can't be eaten! lol

Cheer's! Drink up your water too, I even neglected that!

Spring Colds

Thursday, May 01, 2014

Spring colds are for the birds. Raw throat, stuffed nose, doesn't make it easy to feel good about things. Go away cold, I did not invite you into my home, you hitched a ride on my son's shoulder and decided to make a go of life here. Your not wanted, please leave as quietly as you came in. I don't have time for feeling down. emoticon I have better things to be doing. emoticon Farewell cold, and don't bother visiting other member's of my family or my friends, they don't want you either. Be gone! emoticon emoticon emoticon

A success for Easter Dinner

Monday, April 21, 2014

Had my Mom over for dinner, and she brought a scrumptious ham, and I provided all the yummy side dishes. My Mom has never filled herself to the point of FULL. And I generally try not to as well. There have been times. But since this new me, I am able to walk away much better. It's really not even a thought now. Smaller portions, and will power. (I really wanted an easter egg, but was full and figured, why now? Why not later for my snack? ) Perfect. And that's what I did. We didn't indulge on sweets either, been trying to keep those out of the house. Not totally, because I feel I can't stop every indulgence. But I am making progress, and so happy for some of my decisions. emoticon


McDonald's YOU Lost today~

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

AND I WON! I think it's a stress thing....stress eating...and yes, a cheeseburger and small fries from McDonalds...SOUNDED so good. Then I sat at the traffic light and changed my mind. Ate that apple and drank that can of sparkly water! Not only did I save myself from the wrong choice, I saved a bit of money too! Phew....(it wasn't easy, happened)

As far as wall will mark 25 seconds. OMG.....burn and shake....phew. emoticon

Have a good evening!!


Need to focus on staying focused.

Sunday, April 13, 2014

This past week hasn't been my greatest week for making the right healthy decisions. I guess I should say, it's been since Thursday evening the choices could have benefited me more. I didn't make good choices in the foods that I ate for dinner, or the beverage that I included with them. I feel once a week is ok, but another set of friends invited us out and well, Friday night, round two. And then lastnight, I gave in to the munchies. AND another glass of wine. SO.....Lesson learned, once a week ok, 3 times, not so much.

On to my fitbit - I was sure I was going to nail my 10,000 steps yesterday, I was so elated that in fact, I looked down to wear I keep it....(hooked to the bra), and Crap, where it is?? Well, it doesn't count when it's on the counter of your bathroom. I can't believe how hooked on that little device I am! SO, I would gestimate with what we were doing that I hit my goal, but have no evidence. emoticon Note to self, check bra for devices!

I also am trying a 30 day challenge - Wall squat challenge. Yesterday, I did a 10 second wall squat..... emoticon Ok, so I felt that! BUT I hope to continue with the challenge, each day you add time. Today is 15 seconds. I got this!

My stomach is grumbling, time for water and I think some cream of wheat is in order! Have a blessed good week!

Good luck on your goals!
