February week 1

Sunday, February 03, 2013

I did not have a stellar week. My weigh in this morning showed a .6 lb. gain, and all I can say is that I'm suprised it wasn't more. I did well with exercise this week, but consistently overate. Late in the week I got a good deal on M&M's, and that was the end of any thoughts of healthy eating for the rest of the week. I have absolutely NO willpower when it comes to chocolate. Any junk food in general- if it's in the house, I feel compelled to eat it, even if I'm not craving it. And then my hubby picked up a bag of chips for himself the other night, and being the sweet guy that he is, bought me some chocolate too.

Right now I'm pretty frustrated with myself. I don't get why I choose junk food over the healthy stuff. If I can get that figured out, maybe I can overcome it. But at this point it's still a mystery to me. Anyway, I didn't track my other goals this week, and I don't remember how well I did with them. All I know is right now I'm eating a healthy breakfast of oatmeal with blueberries, and I'll take the rest of the week one step at a time.

    Well you definitely have a good attitude about it. Don't beat yourself for being human, we choose the junk over the healthy because our bodies are still very primitive and we have not evolved out of the "trying to consume fat" because 1000 years ago we need as much fat as possible to survive... never mind that chocolate is absolutely delicious. I say take a deep breath, and start over gain and don't look back.

    I can completely relate. I felt out of control in October, when all the Halloween candy was on sale. There's something about all those "little" sized (but unfortunately not little calories) chocolates that makes me think I can eat them by the handful. Seriously. I grab them by the pair -- two for each hand, gotta have balance! -- and that starts off an uncontrollable binge of chocolate until they're all gone. I can't even fool myself into thinking they're not there, and rationing them.

    Good for you that your breakfast today was a healthy one! Every healthy meal is still a victory.

    personally, I am so ready for summer fruits/veggies as healthy snack options.... I was all ready to try two new recipies this week and then discovered the veggies were not available... LOL

    The best thing about today is that you get to start totally over and not dwell on last week. Don't beat yourself up, you will be able to do this. You have it in you. You will find it!!

    Keep working at it. You are a strong beautiful women with more power inside of you than you know!

    omgosh, I am the exact same way with sweets! I had to get rid of all the cookies and pastries we had in the house... It's kind of like "oh, one wont hurt," and after you eat it your eyes start to glow and you become a cookie monster! haha

    Don't get down on yourself. By realizing you cannot resist the chocolate temptations, you can make changes so they are not so available to you.

    Great job on choosing a healthy breakfast. keep it up!
