So far so good.

Friday, June 03, 2011

So far so good. I'm not really having that much of a good time tracking. I don't really care for the new tracker on sp. It is more complicated to use and seems to freeze up a fair bit. Oh well, I'll get used to it. Its tough this week too because I've had three lunches out of the office in a row so it makes it much harder to track.

I have such issues with controlling the amount of food that I put on my plate and in my mouth when it is not controlled for me. That is why I like to choose the portion controlled snackers. They are a gift to me who cannot seem to sit down and have 10 chips. If I'm eating chips, I eat them until I feel grossed out.

My life is very different than it was a year ago. I'm settled into my new relationship quite well. My relationship with my x-husband is great. He is in a new relationship himself and is very happy. This makes me happy. He deserves it.
My new guy and I have a ton in common, We work out together often on the weekends. He is always up for it. He says he'd like to work out in the morning with me but somehow never seems to quite manage to get up with me at 5:15 in the morning. I can't say that I blame him. If I could manage to maintain my weight without working out every day I sure would.

I don't think I'd give up working out all together though. I feel so much better about myself when I'm working out. I just sooooo wish the Grouse Grind was going to open soon. I don't know when that will be as it was a very cold, snowy winter and early spring and we've had little to no nice weather all spring. It has been the most miserable and rainy spring in something like 40 years. I won't complain though. We could have the flooding they are having in Winnipeg, or some of the awful earthquakes in other parts of the world.

But.. I'm continuing to work out with the grind in mind. I'm trying to improve my stamina and the strength in my legs to improve my time.

I've made a bet with someone at work that if I can bring my time to under 45 minutes, he'll come back and do the grind with me. Wish me luck!

    Oh boy, do I ever understand this re:adjustment phase, Girl!! you're doing fine and will for sure continue to; i can feel that in your words.

    Several times a year when I want to re:establish smarter portions (having drifted a bit), I go through a couple of reminder-steps, first reviewing an online visual that shows me how big a good amount is of each type of food and then actually measuring my meals out for a couple of days -- more days if need be. Then all's well again for honest eye-balling and simple pride in myself, for another few months.

    That's victory enough to keep it cookin' along fine for another few months, usually. Getting enough sunshine seems to help curtail 'cheating' on my amounts, too. They are never perfect for long, yet it's easier and easier to re:balance things day by day the longer I'm mindful. And do not ever 'give up' of course!
