I'm Still Trying.....

Thursday, January 20, 2011

Well last week was not perfect. I did not get in as much exercise as I wanted. Although if I am being honest, I probably exercised the amount that my body could handle. The legs are still tight from running Goofy. I am trying hard to just listen to my body about whether it feels good enough to exercise. I also did eat nearly as well as I wanted. I was not perfect but I am still trying.

I noticed some trends in my eating. I am now often going back for second portions which I never used to do. I am getting back into the bad habit of drinking soda pop almost daily. I am making bad choices when I am hungry. It used to be that if during the day I was hungry, I would allow myself to overeat if I at least kept it healthy. Now I am not just overeating but I am eating poorly. emoticon

Here's hoping I have a better week.

Exercise 30 minute~ NO

Drink 8 glasses of water~ YES

Consume between 1500-1800 calories~ 2039 but I am okay with this as this was a "healthy" eating day for me even if the calorie count was slightly higher than I would have liked.
No soda pop~ YES
No fast food~ YES
Get 7 hours of sleep~ YES

Fri 1/21:

    It's tough when we start to backslide, but it sounds like you're noticing and that is have the battle. Just start fresh...Every Day is a Fresh Start!

    Recognizing where you are having problems is the first step in fixing it. Start working towards healthier habits. If you need more calories (which you might after Goofy), make them healthy calories (as opposed to empty calories).

    Remember, you're body is probably refueling from Goofy.

I know what you mean though, my food intake has been awful. At least you're aware!

    Molly, I'm in agreement with others. You ran Goofy, you can do ANYTHING! I'm sure you're body is still recovering. I'd also be interested in this green smoothie you speak of. Sounds..... interesting. hehe Wish I could help out with the soda thing. I know what it's like to like something and not be able to stop (pizza is my weakness). Keep up the good work! I'm sure you'll lose those pesky pounds and get back into your healthy routine again.

    Thank you for this very honest blog. Sometimes I get the feeling that I am the only one who has been at this Spark thing for years and is still struggling.
You can do this...You got it!

    Molly dear, I've "known" you for 3 years and I KNOW you've got this. You are such a strong and inspiring person. WHO was it that encouraged me and got me running? Yep, that was YOU! And anyone who can pull off the Goofy can do ANYTHING!

HUGS!

    I thought it was just me but my legs are still barking at me too! And I didn't do the half!!
And I can relate about the eating poorly and second helpings, although this week has been much better for me.

I read about that Green Smoothie challenge. What are you going to put in yours?

    Molly, My friend - I know you can turn this around! You have done it before! You just ran the goofy and you did it! It was quite the accomplihment and I know that you can get those unwanted pounds off. Good luck and know that I am here if you need to vent!

  I completely understand, the spark calorie counter has helped me to see were I am in reference to the amount I've consumed. So when I not completely caring I write it on the refrigerator. It chases me away. Lol
