I'm not gone, just ran out of things to say

Monday, February 18, 2013

What a crazy month and so many times I have popped in here and well, just didn't have anything to say. Eating has been nuts and I feel like I've been one excuse after another. While I've lost weight it's not due to a healthy lifestyle but rather stress and then a killer cold. Through it all I really wanted to make sure I came on here and stayed accountable and so I continued to track my food and activities. I am proud of myself for one thing. I didn't derail. Actually, I'm really proud of that.

Yesterday was the first time that I had an appetite and could taste food and I went over board. By 3:00 I had already eaten 90% of my calories for the day and was able to stop myself. I didn't toss my hands up in the air and decide, I'll make up for it tomorrow. Old school Tami would have continued diving into the pool of no regret for at least 10 pounds before waddling out of the water and claiming, "this time I'll stay on track".

This morning I started my day out with an different breakfast which I loved. Broiled mushrooms on a multigrain bagel thin with two slices of Canadian bacon and a sliced nectarine. I felt like I was treating myself to a very decadent breakfast and it made me smile. This was a treat, not half a cheesecake (yes, I've eaten that much), not an entire box of Pot of Gold chocolates (done that one more than once), not ... well you get the picture.

I like me, I deserve to be treated well and I'm just the person to do it.

    WOOOOHOOOO! That's saying a lot! And I'm glad you poked your head back in! You are doing awesome - even if it's one catch at a time. Lets be honest and admit that some of the battle is simply with the habits and not so much the food! Your breakfast sounds DELISH! Did you use a portobello? I might have to give that a try!

    I'm a faithful tracker of nutrition and exercise but as far as blogging I have a lot to be desired. It's like I have nothing to say lately as well.

    I have done the 'nothing much to say' thing recently too. I still track, read, listen and keep things going, but I sort of stepped out of the comment sections. I didn't even look at the 'SparkPeople mailer' emails, it just took too much time and energy. Winter weather took the wind out of my fitness sails, and I am still slowly heading toward my goal, though I do need to get purposely do fitness activities again.
    Your breakfast 'treat' sounds interesting. Well done with staying on track!! emoticon
