Thank goodness for SparkFriends!

Friday, July 08, 2011

It is sooo nice to log on to Spark and see encouragement from my Sparkfriends and members! Thank you! It helps...

I stepped on the scale today and was shocked. I will not reveal why except it was a "boohoo shock" thing. But I am determined. I have also discovered my brain is somewhat obssessive. I think I am beginning to understand how people can become bulimic/anorexic....that frantic thought that won't go away and leads to disastrous behavior...
Fortunately, I have never gone down that road, and I work with a lot of clients who have, so my role-modeling keeps me on the straight and narrow.

My downfall lately is that whenever I discover a new food (Greek yogurt!! OMG I am in greek heaven!) I eat waaaaay too much of it.
So, having said that, why don't I follow the same pattern when I discover a new exercise?? Oh wait! I don't exercise as much as I eat!! Could that be the cause of my weight gain? Duhhh.
Onwards and upwards.......mantra for today..."More yoga, less yogurt"....Om!

    Portion up your foods at the beginning of the week and plan ahead it will help bunches!

Take baby steps and incorporating more movement into your day... and little by little you will be moving more and burning more and whala... no more boohoo moments on the scale.

    Believe it or not, there are people who obsess about exercise just like some of us obsess about food. Hahahaha. I need to exercise more and eat less too. We can do it!

    I should have mentioned that I usually do eat the 0% "Olympia ProBiotic Balkan style" which is fab, with chia seeds and 1/2 cup granola and fresh raspberries from my garden! yummy! I tried the Liberte Greek yogurt and mixed in 1/4 cup of that with my 0% Olympia. Good stuff, but too much of a good thing when you have 4 servings throughout the day! LOL...yep divediva, portion control is a good thing!!
and Llsa? You rock...yep, you rock.... emoticon

    I hear you about the greek yummy! I like to add 1 tbsp of chia seeds into mine for a nutty/healthy crunch! YUM!

I totally understand about becoming "obsessive"...especially regarding diet and exercise. There's been times that I've had to tell my brain to "relax" during this I had a bout of aneroxia when I was 14-15 years old. I am very aware of that time in my life...and will not go there again! Anyways...enough about glad to see you back on here again!
Keep sparking my friend...don't worry about the gain on the are aware of it and know the steps you need to take to change it! You CAN and WILL do it!

    Portion control is a girls best friend! or you can try the fat free stuff, just as good as the full monty as far as I am concerned. I love the fat free plain Greek Yogourt, 3/4 cup with some fruit, a sprinkle of cinnamon and a hint of sweetner (my fave is vanilla) and you have the perfect breakfast! or dessert.

Give it a try and you don't have to give up your love affair with the Greek!
