Sparkcoach Blog-supermarket habits!

Thursday, April 11, 2013

Sparkcoach has assigned me to write a blog about the pros and cons of my supermarket shopping habits

Although I don't buy the groceries, I go with my grandpa sometimes

When I do go, the pros would be that I get to choose what I like to eat, put new foods in the grocery cart, and exploring all the different possibilities of food!! It's also fun when I have a list and gather all the ingredients to make something (like a vegetarian chili I made... last year! lol)

The cons would be that it can be overwhelming especially when there's so much cheap junk food around you it can almost be discouraging because it's like- why does junk food have to be cheap and healthy food have to be pricey???

I guess what I want to start working on is going to the grocery store more with my grandpa and helping out by trying to find coupons and make a list and of course, not going to the grocery store on an empty stomach!

what are your supermarket strategies?

Mind over Pizza

Sunday, April 07, 2013

(Read this blog as if I was writing it on April 6th, not today's date, thanks!)

How did I do today?
Well if a healthy person were to look at my food choices, they probably wouldn't approve. :(

BUT

There's so much going on behind the scenes than what's in my food and fitness trackers.
The choices I make
The choices I make to follow through with my personal fastbreak goals
And that's what happened today

Every Saturday, my Grandma brings pizza from the restaurant she works at.
Man alive I'll tell ya-
this week's pizza was my FAVORITE kind of pizza of ALL TIME!!
It's the pizza that people call burnt but it's where the cheese on top is overdone.

And it just so happens that my goals for this week were no fast food- including my grandma's pizza!

I saw it and I almost cried!
Ok, not really but tears were about to prick my eyes because the pizza was RIGHT THERE in front of my face!

So I put it away in the freezer- out of sight out of mind right?
I chose a decent lunch and hadn't eaten for quite a few hours (dangerous I know!)
As you can guess, I was pretty hungry for dinner and that pizza in the freezer was calling my name!!!

But guess what?
I didn't have ANY!!
Normally I would've been oh well, I'll have it tomorrow's a new day
But I know that if I caved in then I would've let myself down-again
I would've done the same thing, starting strong but then blowing it

Now I know that if I can resist my FAVORITE pizza, then I can accomplish even more than I thought.

YOU CAN TOO!!!!!!

  That was me tonight, with the key lime pie I made for my boy. I had one teeny taste and continued on with my grapes. Felt AMAZING to take that one bite and continue to stand by my meal plan instead of indulging myself in an entire piece. emoticon

Please don't...

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

do what I did in the past when I was trying to lose weight

I let one day slip into a 9 month downward spiral
9 MONTHS!!!!!
9 months I could've continued to lose weight and get healthier

but no
I let one day, one day of mistakes and pigging out turn into this 9 month junk food bad habit frenzy

So please
Please
DO stay on track
don't do what I did!

I know we hear it all the time- don't let one bad day derail your progress or make you throw in the towel
but it really is true!

So

Hot Sauce

Sunday, March 31, 2013

Happy Easter everyone!!!
remember this day- Christ our Lord is risen! He's alive and He saves!!!
Amen!


My Easter Dinner today was from Taco Bell
it was good
:D
the people ask if you want any sauce, and our guy asked if we wanted hot sauce and my Grandpa said yes which was unusual because we never really get sauce there
so
on their sauce packets they have sayings on them
and on one of them this saying really stood out to me it said:
"If you never do, you'll never know"
how simple yet profound!
I hope this small statement encourages you on your weight loss journey and helps you to do something you've always wanted to do but never thought possible!
Have an amazing day everyone!
