Bringing it!

Tuesday, March 04, 2014

Today, I am going to bring all I have to accomplishing my goals. I think there is some kind of brain chemical that causes me to eat beyond fullness into gorging myself. I kept saying yesterday after eating grits and eggs, waffles, toast, a sandwich, mad a bowl of noodles, all befor 9am....why do I keep stuffing my face? Something kept compelling me to continue eating until I hurt. Today, I will have control. I will come back here later today and check in, I will be honest with myself til I break this habit of unhealthy living.

I have learned this past week that there are many triggers to unhealthy habits I have in my life. Working 12 hours is one. I work as a nurse and sometimes don't get a chance to eat and the day may have been stressful so I reward myself with a drink or 3 and food, bad food. TV commercials with food is another trigger. I see something and my mouth waters, so I run to the kitchen to see what I can whip up. Family get together s is a big trigger. I normally cook most of the food and of course, I must taste everything, over and over to make sure it is good to eat. There is a particular show I watch in the afternoon, and I am programmed to eat while it is on.

These are just a few triggers! I have to get a handle on it before it consumes me. Last year after I lost 40 pounds, I got rid of all those fat clothes. Now that I have gained 28 pounds can only imagine what my smaller clothes look like on me...I am squeezed tight. Muffin top galore.

Every time I feel the need to eat stuff that is not on my plan, I will drink water...I think I will be drinking a lot of water today!

Out loud.

Wednesday, August 28, 2013

The day has started and I am determined to accomplish the goals set for the day. Sometimes, I have to talk to my self out loud. I don't find that it is a crazy thing to do. It is a tool I use. And I need to hear encouragement. Unfortunately, I have to give it to my self...usually say..."you can do this" and "don't eat that" or "drink water, Tracy".

Goals today include:
Eating within my range.
Drinking the water.
Elliptical 15 min/treadmill 15 min
No alcohol

I can do this!

Today, I feel a bit "off". Not sure why. I tend to write in a diary when feeling this way and probably still will later if I am not feeling better later. I need to evaluate why I am feeling this way. Typically, I am a cheerful, happy go lucky gal. Today, even my co workers noticed something wrong. One girl even said why are you so sad today?

Maybe I am lonely.


Making every day count!

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

I know I should make every day count, but today I am trying to make every moment count. Living and eating intentionally! When I am down, I retreat to my old ways. I eat, drink, stop weighing myself, stop tracking food intake, stop looking in the mirror.

Recently, I broke out a pad of paper and a pen and actually wrote down some daily goals. While I love tracking my goals online, there is something about writing them down in my own hand writing and reviewing them at the end of the day. I'm not perfect. When I diet, I used to think I either had to be perfect or just give up for that day and blow it.

I don't think that way anymore. Must be an age thing. If I can look back over my day and see that I made better choices from the day before, then I feel encouraged.

So here's to making every moment, everyday, count for better health and more energy!

    I love writing on old fashioned paper too. I have all sorts of apps on my phone and Ipad to keep me organized and plan just about all aspects of my life and I use them, but I still like to go to the kitchen junk drawer and grab a pad of paper and a pen!
Have a great day!
