Day 2

Saturday, February 02, 2013

Ugh!!! I am so completely and utterly frustrated with myself! I did great yesterday until just before bed, and then I ended up raiding the pantry. What in the world is wrong with me?!!!

The only thing I can think is that it's nerves about starting the new job.

Today I have GOT to have a good day. I don't care if I have to cry and pout and piss and moan all day long. I will NOT stray from my diet today!!!

Oh, and I guess it would help to mention that I'm PMS'ing AGAIN!!! It seems like I barely had time to recover from last month and already I'm dealing with it again.

Not in a good place right now. Please send me a kick in the rear!

    We all have our "bad days". Don't beat yourself up about it, just keep moving foward. You can do this :) emoticon

    Would rather send you a hug than a kick. Looks like you are pretty good at kicking yourself.

    Sometimes sugar free hot chocolate helps out in the evening with fat free whipped cream. Makes me slow down and the chocolate hits the stop. I even add a little Splenda sometimes so it doesn't taste too "diety". Think spring! emoticon

    I can sympathize with the PMS'y thing. SEems like you just get to feeling better then it hits again!!! You can do this. I am trying to get back on track, too.

    I get the same way during my pre-menses. YUCK! Hold on and stay the course. You'll be so glad you did!

Go back and read some of your blogs from waaaay back and visit your pre-losses self and remind yourself where you've been and where you are going.

    Breathe. You're going to be OK. Know that we've all ... all of us who've lost a lot of weight anyway, have been through this. Ride it out. Keep getting up in the morning and aiming for a GREAT on plan day. If you lose momentum and mess up, forgive yourself and try again tomorrow. One day, you'll get "it" back. You know what to do, how to do it. Life gets in the way sometimes. Learn the lesson she's trying to teach you and move on. YOU CAN DO THIS!!! I believe in you!

    You need some exercise stat - even if it is only 10 minutes. You need to kick this mood in the butt and embrace the day. We've got you - pull strength from all of us

    You need to change your mindset about being on a 'diet'. SP is all about making healthy choices, not being on a diet. So purge your pantry, refrigerator and freezer of all junk and processed foods. If it isn't in your house, you can't eat it. You will think twice (hopefully) about having to go out to buy your junk foods.

Happy Journey.

    Quick tips that I can think of: Drink more water. Candida supplement to kill sugar cravings. Snack on almonds, they alkalize and give satiety. Eat vegetable soup (homemade to cut the salt) or green salads. Take magnesium supplement for energy. Vitamin D, too. Sweet treat: Dole Popsicles, only 25 calories for some. Play with the doggies!
Remember being new at a job lasts only a short time. Remember you can't be perfect in every way (you're not Mary Poppins after all), so when your energies are going towards other important circumstances it is necessary to allow some slack for room to stretch emotionally. It won't last forever and when life gets back to an even keel or close to it, your old mindset will be there for you because it's part of who you are.
Utilize all the knowledge on food you've accumulated so far to help you out and stick with your good choices. Tell yourself that this will be easier than you think. Just do it, that's how everything gets done anyhow! emoticon

    It is crazy how one part of our mind emoticon can lead us to raid the fridge or the like (for me lately it's eating several large size chocolate bars!!) while another part knows we shouldn't emoticon but sometimes we still do.

Stress threads its way into our mind and bodies and we can feel powerless in how we react to it. But as others have said here, and what I'm working on to, is changing the reaction. Can't avoid stress or suppress it. You are ahead of the game by identifying the trigger. Hopefully your blogs of accountability will help - it sure seemed to over the holidays. You can do it!

    Unfortunately there is only 3 weeks in the month where PMS is not an issue and when you look at it like that it is depressing! But starting a new job, even one you really wanted is a very stressful time. Be nice to yourself a little!!

Bookworm's comment though is really accurate in that we have to find another coping tool other than food during times of stress! Like everything that is a process and I suppose it is a good step to recognise it!

    Just make the next best choice, starting NOW! You CAN do it! I agree though, the PMS thing really makes things so hard. This month I am going to try to remember how disappointed I was when I had to lose the weight I gained due to the binges that came with PMS...Can you post a picture of yourself that you like on the pantry door & one from your past next to it? I think I may try that this month...Visuals work well you? Maybe make a collage or find another artistic activity, some other way to distract yourself when those crazy urges hit?
I will be sending up prayers for grace & strength for you to love yourself through the day today! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Hi, I only started reading your blog recently, but it sounds like you're in the middle of a lot of transition. I'm wishing you the best of luck, good discipline to stick to your plan, and a big helping of patience. emoticon

    I think just being open about your slip-up on this blog is showing real progress.

I know it is the new job anxiety that is triggering these urges to binge. Because I would be feeling the exact same way. Now that you know the root cause, be careful it doesn't become a coping tool. We don't want a "fudge soup" fiasco!

Hugs :)

    I don't want to kick you, but as well you know..such is life. We need to stop making excuses and deal and overcome with the strength we have within ourselves. I say we, because my dear you are never alone. We all deal with ourselves and how we ALLOW things to affect us in our journey. You know what to do, now do it! No excuses, no regrets!
Love ya!
