Having a Hard Time

Thursday, April 17, 2014

I've been getting my lunch time walks in but I haven't been doing so well with my eating. I've been over my calorie range all this week. Today I didn't have to go to Bible Study so I walked on the treadmill while my husband walked on the street. I wanted to do some jogging which is easier on the treadmill. I walked/jogged 1.5 miles and I worked up a real good sweat. You would think after walking 2.9 miles at lunch time and exercising on the treadmill, I would stay within my calorie range. No, I blew it again today. I don't know what's wrong with me.

    Sounds like a very familiar story but the important thing is that you keep working at it. It's easy to beat ourselves up but we have to forget the past and just move forward. I really admire you for all the exercise you do on a regular basis. Sometimes the exercise and weight loss don't sync together at the same time which is frustrating. Hang in there though. You can do it!

    I'm having the same problem right now....don't let it get out of hand nip it in the butt now or in a few weeks or months you will have an even harder time fixing it. I just wish that I would have! emoticon

You have come so far over the last year....Keep it up ... it's inspiring! emoticon

    Remember this is a one day at a time thing. Each day starts out brand new. You are fully in charge of what you are doing and sometimes we think because we are exercising, we can eat anything we want. That was the trap I was in. Until I came to that conclusion, the scale was going the wrong way. You can do it!!!

    It is not easy to stay within our calorie ranges but don't get discouraged. Just keep trying and in time it will come. emoticon I found it helpful to aim for the higher end of my range and when that got easier I moved down to the middle range and that seemed to help me adjust to eating less. Now it has gotten easier but some days it is still a challenge. I do best when I plan out my three meals a day in the morning. That way I know how many calories I have left for "snacking". emoticon

    I had to have a really strong talk with myself to not eat out today. I did go home and eat healthy but it was hard. Sometimes the I will part just doesn't want to. You have my positive trouts that tomorrow will be better

    It's good that you are getting in the exercise. The calorie limits will come. Sometimes the more we tell ourselves we "have" to do something, the more we rebel. If you can come up with some recipes that are filling but low in calories, then your body (and brain) won't feel deprived. I try to add vegetables to everything because they help fill me up faster.

    Thanks for the support Ladies! Sometimes it gets frustrating but then I just have to look back at where I was. I'm not where I want to be but I thank God that I'm not where I was. emoticon

We walked 3.6 miles this morning and then went to church. We were supposed to start cleaning and making our back yard look nice for our church family cook out. But we got lazy when we got home. I guess we will do it next weekend.

Today my husband and I got up early and took our car to be serviced. We decided to walk to Costco's while we wait for the car. We walked a total of 3.8 miles. Costco was closed. We were about to have breakfast at one of these off brand hamburger places when the service lady called me to say the car was ready. So we went back to get the car and went home to have breakfast. Then we went back to Costco. Later we went looking for the elusive back yard furniture. We called many different stores and finally went to a store that had the furniture my husband was looking for. Then when he saw it, he didn't like it. That was really fun! emoticon

I went out for my lunch time walk, 2.5 miles. After work my husband and I walked 2 miles. He wanted to walk 3.6 but I was a little dizzy. I hadn't eaten since before lunch time. Afterwards my mom and grandson came over. My fitbit says I walked over 6 miles and 14,500 steps. Hopefully I will have a good weigh in tomorrow.
