Just Call Me Corrigan

Wednesday, June 13, 2012

For the youngsters out there, this is who corrigan was:

On 17 July 1938, Douglas Corrigan took off from from an airfield in Brooklyn, NY in a tiny single-engine plane. He had filed a flight plan for California, but 29 hours later found himself in Ireland ...

I don't fly, I am crawling...but the wrong way. The results are just as dire.
Since I started water aerobics, I expected some phenomenal results. Instead, I get little blubs going up, up.

Goodness knows I'm trying. My only Goodies are the Spark Goodies. Lots of veggies, lots of water, lots of hope. Yeah, I'm still hoping. Believe it or not, I can see when I don't eat what or how I should. So why do I do it? I guess I belong to the school of "a little bit won't hurt", how much is a little bit is the part that's got me down.

Ok, never mind. As I'm writing, my mind is recalling the chocolate cake and ice cream I had on Sunday at a birthday party, the potatoes with my dinner on Monday, etc., etc.

If I put it in writing, it will happen: No more blind eating, no more mindless snacking. If it goes in my mouth, it better be something that is good for me.

Wish me luck? Again?

    I agree about the tracking as well. Even if you just jot it down on a memo pad, it's really eye-opening to see how quickly those "justabites" add up!

    When I increase my exercise I find myself getting hungry more. If I track my food as soon as I eat I can see if I'm ahead of schedule on fat, carbs, protein or calories and I try to adjust. You just need to find what works for you and you will because you're stubborn. emoticon Me too.

Work it every day and emoticon .

    emoticon Perhaps you should start logging your food before you eat it. That way if you see yourself going to high you can stop before it gets bad. Good luck!

    I wasl listening to some graduation speeched on NBC. And one speaker said "It doesn't matter how many times you fall down as long as you get up one more than you fall. And you do every time.

    The main thing is you are starting again. Don't give up on yourself. Everyone makes mistakes. Just take it one day at a time. You can do this. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I have fell down so many times, but I get back up and try again. It isn't how long it takes, it is that we are trying. You can do it, take baby steps and do it one day at a time. emoticon emoticon
