I can't keep eating, hoping the exercise will be enough! It's not!

Saturday, July 14, 2012

I am feeling more positive, even though the extra eating is showing on my thighs (rubbing together a little and haven't done that for ages!) - too much sweet stuff.
The line is drawn though.

Think I have been eating a little too much and thinking I could get away with it as I'm doing so much exercise! Oh well now I have realised I can't do that! Its not worth it. Binge on healthy food if I have to but not sweet stuff!

I do have a lot to do this week. I'm lucky that I finish work on Thursday for the 6 weeks school holiday and on Friday we are going to Butlins for a week.
My children still don't know about it. They think we are just going to meet my spanish friend and her children who are in Buxton at the moment. Yes we are meeting them but not till Friday the 27th.
So lots of organisation needed - lists! Getting house tidy before we go and packing done without kids knowing. Wish me luck! Better get on with it now. My hubby is at work early and so an early start is always good to get stuff done and the sun is shining here, long may the positivity last!

    Thank you all, we have had a wonderful time at Butlins.
However I did not keep the eating in check unfortunately
and am suffering a little for it!
So far I am writing it down again and will continue, soon
get back in shape I'm sure! However have thought I
may look into CBT to help deal my yo-yo-ing as my poor
skin gets stretched and its getting older!

    Have a fantastic holiday. The last time I went to Skegness buntlines in 2008 they had built this fabulous spa area. It was blissful and I had the most fantastic massage and facial which wasnt a bad price either.
Never a truer comment than ' you can't out- train a bad diet' . We just need to remain focused and stay on the plan without missing out on life xx

    Enjoy your trip!

If it helps at all, I blogged (on my nonSP blog) about the SAME thing this week

'm REALLY not happy with my eating the past few weeks. It's getting better but those overages just well, you can't outrun them :(

    I also learned that you can't out-exercise a poor diet! I walk 5 miles most every day and do Zumba 2-3 times a week. But my eating had gotten out of control and I was barely maintaining. There needs to be a balance between the two for weight to stabilize to the right level for your body. Like the song says about love & marriage, ya can't have one without the other, LOL!

  Keeping food & exercise in proper balance will allow you to burn fat. There is more to the food-exercise equation than meets the eye. I hope you come to the webinars. This will help you to understand & know what to do & what not to do.

Rubbing thighs...OUCH!

    Sounds like you have a real challenge ahead of you keeping your plans a secret from the kids emoticon They seem to have radars that detect everything!! I really hope the weather dries up for you - it has to stop at some point!!! If we don't chat before the end of the week have a great time at Butlins emoticon

    Glad you are feeling more chirpy now. Hope you have a great time at Butlins and that the weather improves.
DD and family went to Minehead Butlins and had dreadful weather. Lots to do indoors but a shame when kids cannot get to the beach.
I am sure the weather will change by next Friday - there cannot be anymore rain to come down surely?
Why do we always Spring Clean before hols? It is good to return to a tidy house certainly but sometimes I think I wear myself out so much that it takes me a day or two to get into the swing of a fun time.
