still trying

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

Well I have not stuck to the program with my food or exercise program at all, the only positive that I have is that I've logged in everything so I can see the damage it has cost me, also can feel it with the pounds I have put on. I've been under a lot of stress lately and I turn to food to cope. I have not given up everyday I get up with the attitude that I will get back on track today so as long as I feel like that I will make it happen again, I have not lost faith in me, I am a fighter, I am a strong person and there is nothing I can't do.

    One of the things I'm reading right now emphasizes ADDING healthy stuff you love, instead of taking away things you don't want to give up. Maybe you need to try a new tactic. It says not to worry too much about the bad stuff you are eating but just add more and more and more of the good stuff--leafy greens and plain veggie salads and whole fresh fruits and clean pure water. If you add enough of that stuff, you won't have room for the other. I'm giving this theory a try, its new to me. =)

    I have faith in you too. You will get there. Stress derails me as well but at some point it will pass and we can get back to basics. Keep trying.

    I am right there with you right now. I am trying to make up some meal plans and I think that will really help me to be successful. I did pack a lunch for my trip to the city so I didn't stop to eat and could control my portions, but that didn't stop me from stopping at scooter's and grabbing a large blended mocha with two extra shots or the iced coffee and reeses I grab at the gas station. Asking myself why the whole time. Got home and had no calories left for supper and tried to fight the urge to eat, but gave in and ended up mowing like a sow in a feed lot because I allowed myself to get so hungry in the first place. and I KNOW better!! It is frustrating to say the least, but I remind myself that little steps forward are better than giving up and quitting. I am making changes and realize I can not do it all overnight. And I am sure you are making changes too and this is what we need to focus the most on right now. Good luck to you on your journey and LET today be a GOOD healthy day with steps in the right direction, for both of us!
