Yuck.

Monday, June 27, 2011

Well, I've had four days of munching away. Perogies eaten: 48. Yeah.

Today I'm drinking wheatgrass and trying to motivate myself to clean the house and organize my bookshelf. I have all this time in between quitting my last job and starting my new job July 6th, I don't know why I can't seem to motivate myself to exercise and eat healthy and DO stuff I didn't have time to do when I was working.

I got up way too early this morning, or something, because I'd already eaten almost 1,900 calories and that was before noon. I don't know whether it's because I'm a chronic self-sabatour or what, but I lost a pound and by the end of the day, I'll have gained 2!

I'm lonely today. Maybe that's it.

    Maybe you just haven't gotten quite yet what I call "the zone" where I am concerned about making sure the meals for the next day will be agreeable with my nutrition tracker ... I do so want to lose this weight and that is how I prepare for the next day. I want to stay within my 1200 to 1500 calories.

Weighing all day is not good either -- even though I do it --- you will inevitably weigh more ...

Overindulgence.

Thursday, June 23, 2011

Yesterday started off well enough; however, things slowly spiraled concerning my diet. I went to the grocery store yesterday, and that always excites me. I left in the morning without eating breakfast, and started eating things on the way home from the store.

Well, frozen sliced peaches. Not too bad. Unfortunately, I also bought a bag of 48 cheese and potato perogies. There are about 35 left in the bag now! After looking at my nutrition summary, almost HALF of my calories consumer were from the excessive perogie consumpion. And yes, I went over my calories for yesterday!

Today is a new day. I did eat a bowl of cereal this morning - Kashi Heart-to-Heart cereal, my favorite. And 5 grams of fiber per serving!

Oh, and a sidenote: despite my over-doing it yesterday, I still lost 1 lb. :)

    emoticon for you on losing the pound .... quite an achievement.

I tell ya what ... that writing down our nutritional journal every day sure is an eye-opener for all of us .... sure can see where we need to change a few things.

I'm a fan of microwaving egg beaters (only takes 2 30-second hits on the timer) and adding veggies to it with a slice of whole wheat or grain toast .... very low cal breakfast and lots of protein and fiber .... then I have 6 oz of yogurt for a snack .... kind of give you other filling options when you need a change.

Keep up the good work ..

Stressed and depressed.

Tuesday, June 21, 2011

So much for Day 1. I quit smoking two days ago, and right now, I'm feeling restless, irritable, and discontent...and ready to dive in to a swimming pool full of nacho cheese, quesadillas, mashed potatoes, butter...cream...

I feel like cooking up a quick skillet version of my Mom's cheesey potato casserole complete with full-fat sour cream, cream of chicken soup, lots of cheddar cheese, onions and butter, and hashbrown potatoes. I want to gorge on this quicky casserole which would be enough to feed a family of 4+.

I keep almost getting up to go to the fridge and pull out the ingredients. I need help.

    Thanks, all. The comments really help. I left my apartment and went down to my friend's apartment downstairs. Leaving seemed to help, as it 1) got me out of sight of the kitchen and 2) got me distracted from thinking about food, as I got some quality girl time. Your comments really helped and I appreciate them - I realize now my stomach hurts, and therefore, I must be hungry. I added a grapefruit to my snack for the day to tide me over until dinner. Thanks again, and I'm off to drink some unsweetened iced tea. :)

    I believe in you! Not eating whatever I want whenever I want it has been the hardest thing for me, especially since there are no instant results for things like this. But think of how you'll feel afterward. And I agree with TammyJinks--it isn't a bad thing to have some, but just *some*. That way you'll satisfy that craving, but not overdo it.

I can't even imagine how much more difficult quitting smoking must make everything, but remember girl, you're STRONG. You can do it! And remember, in the end, you're doing this for YOU. So don't be too hard on yourself. There's plenty of time to make changes. (: emoticon

    Don't do it!!! Step away from the fridge!!!

Something that has worked for me is seeing pictures of myself right now and tons and tons of water. The pictures keep me motivated so that I can see exactly why I'm eating the salad instead of the burger my hubby & step-son are eating right next to me. The water, well, I will tell you like people here on SP have told me. Keep the cup/bottle in your hand when you're feeling the need to eat. Drink water when you feel that you're hungry. If you're still hungry in 30 minutes or an hour, then eat something small.

I don't think it's a bad thing to eat what you really want, so long as you control the portions. So instead of eating the entire casserole, portion it out automatically to serving sizes you won't regret later. Then only take one portion for you to eat now, and put the rest in the fridge for later or someone else to eat.

I hope this helps! Good luck on your journey of weight loss AND quitting smoking. I know you can do it!

    I can certainly relate to your circumstances! The nicotine monster has a weight problem itself!!!! Just a thought....I took pieces of computer paper, put on each one a reason I wanted to quit smoking, and placed them in different parts of the house. It really helped me to see all my motivation when I entered varied rooms. I also suddenly found other things to occupy my time, such as reading....just something to focus my mind on. I wish you lots of good fortune, and am here if you need someone!

New food!

Tuesday, June 21, 2011

I tried a new food today. Near East Roasted Garlic & Olive Oil couscous. It was quite good. It seemed to have a sort of nutty flavor, and I kinda liked it! So here's to new foods. :)
