Note To Self

Sunday, January 22, 2012

Okay I restarted Spark this week...In 4 days I lost 2.6 pounds..Considering I have been on steroids for 3 weeks, this is initself amazing, because Prednisone, is known for blowing you up with fluids...

SO Note to self:
Good Job!

Improvements needed:
Portion control
Start measuring instead of eye balling everything
NO MORE LATE NIGHT EATING...sin sin sin Naughty Naughty!!!
Start this week on baby steps as in walking, I get short of breath easy, but hey I had a treadmill last yr, and I actually breathed better excersizing..SO get your butt up and move!
No more eating in bed...
Eat only in the dining room or down stairs...Lord knows eating brocoli in bed is a bit messy!
Daily morning stretches just to stir up some blood circulation

I don't need a reward, for improvement, the reward is the improvemnt.
The reward is feeling good
The reward is having self esteem
The reward is having control, not plundering every bit of food available in the house
The reward is loving yourself as much as you love those around you.

Give yourself the same support that others would give you.

Take charge, and no this is no overnight success...It is a journey of many days, many months or even a year or two..IN this day in age of instant gratification, self improvement is old fashioned, and it does take time...

Okay Miss Melody it is Sunday, time to take charge!

    Keep at it! Oh, the portion control is my hardest thing. I'm not a snacker but that is bc I love to eat huge meals at restaurants. So now that I'm cutting back on portions, I want to snack in between. uggh! This is hard and I can't stand it when people say it isn't! It's only the strongest that will survive. I believe you are a survivor!

    * measuring very important
    *if your measuring, you can do late night eating if the tracker shows a calorie deficit.
    *I eat a "healthy" high protein snack in bed almost every night B4 bed!
    * Yes! make a plan, set long and short term goals, WITH non~food rewards!
    *Yes! Love yourself, like Jesus love you!

    I'm so proud of you Melody. For being on prednisone you've done amazingly. And, I love your goals and your reward system. I have a problem with late night eating too. But, I'm proud to say this past week, I've done much, much better and I know you will too. You CAN do this! We will help each other.

    Take charge and just think how much better we are going to feel and look and how much healthier we will be.
