Worst. Blogger. Ever.

I have trouble blogging. It's not something I particularly enjoy. I don't keep a journal at home either. So, I feel guilty when I don't post for a while but then I remind myself that this is for me. There is no obligation and it's something to do for fun. No quicker way to sabotage yourself than to make yourself feel guilty for doing something for yourself.

I've been having some bad food days. Still been staying within my calories, but been eating Taco Bell and pizza. Pizza has been okay cause I only have two slices with veggies, but the Taco Bell was a bit much. Need to start paying closer attention to my cravings and eat healthy stuff instead. Oh, and my water has been slipping as well. So as of today I am rededicating myself. I'm not getting down on myself since I have still been within my goal.

I have also determined that I seriously need a magnesium supplement. I barely get any at all, if I get any at all. Read that people who eat gluten free very commonly have trouble getting magnesium. It is found in nuts, but I can't eat those either. I sometimes watch people on t.v. eating anything they want without worrying if it will make them sick or kill them and I get mildly jealous. I still have a good variety of options, it just gets old sometimes having to read ingredients lists and modifying recipes.

Thinking I am going to make meatloaf this week. Maybe Friday. Maybe turkey. Not sure.

    Thanks for sharing about the magnesium. I haven't been tracking it. I know my Red Mineral Algae calcium capsules supply only 20%. Best wishes on the switch over to gluten free. I'm just starting too. emoticon on starting the blogging habit. I can see where it would be helpful. It's for you, as you say. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Make sure that you read the label too since the ones at places like Walmart have ones that contain wheat in them. I get mine at the health food store and make sure that it is in a gel capsule since I know that it is the best way to absorb the mag.

    I think you might need a new title to your blog! LOL... This was a fantastic blog!
    I really like what you said about this being for you. You should not feel guilt or obligation to blog. Just do what feels right to you and what helps you achieve your own personal goals. That's what I feel like SP is here for. Good for you!

    I have been struggling with food lately as well, only I haven't been even keeping track of mine. I need to do much much better. Those Taco Bell cravings are really hard to resist!! But we can do it! emoticon

    Sweetie, I like your blog. It is nice to see that you realize that blogging is for you not to win a popularity contest emoticon I crave my foods mostly around 8 pm and I wish it was just a couple of slices of pizza, for me I am not happy unless I am sitting down at night with a side of beef and all the trimmings emoticon

    Just do the best you can and if at anytime you need someone to shout out to I am always here and will be more than happy to listen
