I know I don't post a lot. I really don't ever know what to say, if I even have anything worth saying.

I'm thinking that maybe I need to do. Maybe it'll help me with some accountability. I know what I am doing. I am motivated. I get up and bust my butt at the gym. I get my steps in. Okay, well except for yesterday. Sundays are hard because I am in Church, teaching Sunday School, and usually reconnecting with the family. It's my down day.

I have been very particular with weighing and measuring and logging everything I eat all week long. Then the weekends come and I get so busy I don't log. And my schedule is pretty much shot because I have to eat at different times. Or I don't get an appetite. Or sometimes too much of an appetite.

I don't know what is going on. Yesterday was terrible. I don't know what I was wanting or missing but it seemed like I was starving all day long. No matter what I did I was starved. And so I gave myself the right to eat. Figured I deserved to eat. And so I did. And such poor choices too. And I was so close to a 2lb loss for the week. But as always I blew it.

I am so frustrated with myself. I work so hard all week to blow it in a single day. Why? Don't I respect myself enough? Don't I feel as though I deserve it? Don't I know that I am worth it?

At this point I don't even know what I know anymore (sigh).

I know that I do better when I blog more often. The more time I spend on Spark the healthier I am. There is a real, direct, correlation.

I have a new schedule and I'm having trouble finding time to spend on the site, but I'm going to find it and so will you!

    I know, different schedules can make it diificult.

What I do is everyday, I plan for the next day day what I will eat- even if I know we will be going out to dinner.

It really helps.

I start my day with a protein filled breakfast, it helps my hunger. I also eat 5 times a day (Breakfast, morning snack about 3 hours later, lunch, afternoon snack- about 3 hours later, dinner) This helps me avoid hunger.

    I keep lots of fruits and veggies in the refrigerator for fast moving times like you mentioned and if necessary you could cut them up during the week so on weekends when it is grab and go, you have something healthy. That is what I do anyways.
Good luck, my friend!

  emoticon i understand! so life is diff on w/e's for sure! What kinda weekend day would make you feel gr8? What if you set w/e guidelines, like eat what you burn for maintenance mode instead of weightloss mode? (not overeat, just a bit more. it would let you participate more with family/friends, and just slow down weightloss a bit but not derail?) just a thought! try not to beat yourself up, dust off & go again. New day, fresh start :)

    You do deserve it and you know it - otherwise it wouldn't bother you. Instead of letting your weekends (especially Sunday's) run on auto pilot, try planning. Have a bunch of pre-portioned healthy foods/snacks ready to grab. It could help.

    I hear ya!! Been there, done that . . . over & over & over.

It's ok to take a break on Sundays. Even God rested, right? emoticon

You DO deserve this!!! Remember, God doesn't make junk. That's WHY you deserve this.

Blogging really does help me to stay on track. I like to practice what I "preach." It doesn't have to be anything fancy, your blog today was fine.

Today is a new day. Learn from your mistakes & move on. emoticon emoticon emoticon
