Don't make the day a complete loss

Tuesday, August 07, 2012

okay I admit it i was horrible today and did all the no no's in the book. It was hard for me even to log on let alone add my foods to the tracker. I was horrible today! I have reasons but do they really matter? Everyone has bad days, whatever the reason. The fact remains that I messed up.

I went over my calories and it's only 6:15 pm. What if I get hungry again then what? Then I will pick something that will not add to what I have already accumulated in calories like a carrot or an apple.

Sometimes you have to pat yourself on the back because you are here again. It would have been easy to walk away and wait another week then start over, but I didn't. I logged on every embarrassing calorie to my tracker and moved on. I may not see a weight loss at the end of the week but I may not have added on any either. The point is to go forward. Keep plugging along and get back on track. If I can do it anyone can, I didn't even complete a week yet.

Stick with it and track your foods and weight, even if you mess up a day don't mess up your life for it. GET BACK ON TRACK

    Taking accountability on a bad day is something to be proud of, like you said we all have them and facing it head on is the key to our success!
Be proud of yourself for coming on tracking and getting everything off of your chest , you'll do better for it.....
Good Luck on your journey!

Changing anger for the good

Sunday, August 05, 2012

Yesterday and today I have been like a mad maniac. I was really upset about something that happen within my family. Yesterday I paced the house back and forth, back and forth. Today I took out my frustration on wii bowling and instead of the pins smiling at me I picture a face that I would like to slap. My anger actually did turn my temper into excercise.

Now I can't say that the bowling helped with my issues but I did excercise on what may have been a do nothing day. For 30 minutes I pounded at the pins, each time throwing harder than the next.

After all of that I went online only to find an article on sparkpeople about just that, turning anger into excercise. It worked for me, I'm not happy about losing my temper but it did help getting out my frustrations.

Okay maybe I over did a little, now my shoulder is hurting. I just have to remember next time to not throw so hard. LOL

A change of life

Tuesday, July 31, 2012

This is it Day 1 to my change of Life. I can't say that I am starting a new diet because diets fail, you get tired of the them and you go off, sometimes never to return. This is more than a diet for me, it's a change of life. I can never return to the way and habits I have had because plain and simple they are bad.

Though I have not put on weight since I was last here in 2009, I really haven't lost much more since then. I am 52 years old now and I have multiple health issues including obesity, diabetes, fibromyalgia, bilateral total knee replacements, hypertension, ulcerative colitis, acid reflex, sleep apnea, degenerative disc disease, and the real big surprise... major depression disorder. I am currently waiting on the results of osteoarthritis. I don't want to keep adding to this list.

I have it in my head that if things remain unchanged that I will die. I lost my sister at age 48 due to multiple health problem contributed to her weight, though I loved my sister, I do not want the same fate as her.

Physical activity has not been a routine at all in my life. Due to the problems listed above, I have had an awful time just walking let alone exercise. Whenever I walk up stairs I am winded and exhausted. This is not the me I want to continue as. Time for a change of life.

Like I said this is day 1 for me and I would love to have others join me in this battle to regain our lives. I know it will work here if I can just stick with it. I think I can and I think others can do the same emoticon
