Family Reunion! Now I have another year to prepare!

Monday, June 13, 2011

Saturday morning - woohoo - 116.9! I rock!

Monday morning - uh-oh - 119.5! I ate and ate and ate!!! Fallen rock :(

It's ok - life goes on! I knew I was 'so' going to blow it on Saturday - ok, so Sunday was a bit of an "after-shock" on my personal Richter Scale - life goes on and the leftovers (what little remains) go in the freezer this morning.

Back to water (without bread) and get those veggies into that pot and cooking! Get out the morning fruits and into the bowl!

No more "mrs nice guy" - back to "on track" for me!

Nutrition Tracker Notes for Sunday, June 14
Yeah, I know, too much reunion leftover cake, lol.
Eaten 2,419
BMR* 1,407
Exercise 386
Total Burned 1,793
Differential 626+ over

Get rid of the chocolate chocolate cake Linda!!
No, no, don't eat it!!
too late :(

**Tues: 119.0 even though my calories were over yesterday - they were mostly veggie calories and 2 slices of my homemade bread. Not junk foods.

I have "learned" that after a weekend binge, I must taper off -- my body will still be calling for extra food, but it is up to me what kind of food I shove in my face. My sodium was under 2000 and that helped me a lot! Even having fried fish for lunch, the weight is coming back down.

Wed: 118.2 - this is the fastest I have every come off a binge - maybe because it was pretty much a planned binge? Maybe because this really is a lifestyle change? Who knows and really, who cares - all that really matters is SparkPeople works!!

    Keep on keeping on, pal. You are doing great. I'm impressed that you used your Dad's mixer and made cheesecake too! It's a wonderful way you have to incorporate your Dad in the NOW. See you on the way to Rivendell... emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Not too, too bad for a splurge. Obviously this is not the norm. You know what you have to do to get back on track, and I am sure that you will.

    To enjoy time with family is what is so precious in life. We all have 'off' days. It's ok as long as our on-track days are more than when we are off. Glad you had a good time.

    You crack me up! Don't worry about LIVING your life. Remember, it's all about balance. You ate HIGH with your family... you'll eat LOW on your own and in the end it will balance itself out. This is your lifestyle.... you're doing great & YES... YOU ROCK! Love ya, Dawn emoticon emoticon

    Remember my friend,,,this is a LIFRESTYLE change, these times DO COME UP and WILL COME UP ! The WORSE thing you can do is RUN to the SCALE afterwards and than FEEL BAD about it. It's LIFE HON !! Hence why SP is so DIFFERENT From a DIET !! If you haven't read "The SPARK" I highly recommend you do so, if you have, please reread it again, chapts 2 and 3. Lets NOT be HARD on ourselves for ENJOYING the family, ur doing a FANTASTIC job, and you ALWAYS get it BACK Together. If you didn't get it back together, that'd be different, but you have the SKILLS and knowledge and you USE them WELL ! I am SO PROUD OF YOU !!!! Hey if your reading this and it's around 2PM and you haven't put in ur air miles for the day, PLEASE DO !!! We are NECK and NECK with those NASTY fire crackers and Teddy Bears !!!

    Like I said myself today we all go over once in a while. The fact that we are still here and still trying is what matters.

    Family reunions are like birthdays and anniversaries! Fun while they last
but all the extras that go into it can get you in the end. Back on track it is! HUGS!

    A few lbs aren't so bad. You have a great attitude. I like the fruit in the bowl idea. You rock! Glad to hear you had a nice time.

    That is a lot and I am sure it is more sodium related than fat! You would have to eat 3500 extra for each pound you gained (in theory anyhow!)

    You are emoticon . A little slip does not a fallen woman make. Back on your feet, my little friend, and away we go.
