Over calories...on the upside I got a bonus spin from entering all that food!

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

I decided yesterday to stop using SparkCoach. It is a good resource, for sure, and cheaper than Weight Watchers, and has a lot of really good information. However, I think it's too much for me right now. Rather than being concerned about following the action steps I need to do just one thing...quit eating so much!

I entered all my food today, for the first time in a while. Sometimes I don't enter what I eat because it's either too difficult to figure out what I ate (because I ate out, or we had a lunch at church or something) or because I've eaten so much I already know I'm over calories so I don't even bother.

So, okay, here's my own action step for tomorrow. I already have established a pretty good pattern of eating only when sitting down at the table or counter. (And that worked all by itself for a while until I started to sit down at the counter to eat brownies, or Pop-Tarts--Pop Tarts? Really? I've never really liked Pop-Tarts! Why now? Anyway...)

Wow. That parenthetical statement could have been made into a paragraph itself. Back to what I was saying...

I will eat at the table or counter. Hmmm...maybe it should be just the table. The counter is too tempting because the food is right there in the kitchen. Okay.

I will eat mindfully, planning my food.

I will enjoy what I eat.

I will not obsess about food. God will supply all my needs and I don't have to be thinking about what I will eat. That's what the pagans seek after! "Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added to you." Matthew 6:33

There was something else I was going to do, but I think that's enough for now.

    LOL, "There was something else I was going to do, but I think that's enough for now. " That is so funny. It can get like that. I agree with you. It is best to keep it simple.
I always wondered how the coach thing worked. I will probably try it further on down the road.

Have a blessed day today my friend.

    Sounds like a great plan to me too! I chowed down on nachos tonight as I checked emails. Not mindful or good either!

I hate Pop-tarts! They taste like cardboard.

    emoticon You have The Plan, and You have all that you have Learned from Spark Coach. Now you put all of that to Work, and Enjoy Your Success!!
emoticon My Favorite Part is your Rule to Eat Only At The Table. If more of us followed That One Rule, I believe a lot of our Nutrition Problems would be solved.

    It sounds like you have a good plan in place. Sometimes it seems a little overwhelming, but you have to find what works for YOU. Best wishes with your plan! Relax and do not obsess... emoticon
