Come on spring!!!

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

Ok! I know its been a month since I blogged..I KNOW! lol I just have nothing fun or exciting to say I'm just pushing forward very slowly I have one good day and then 8 bad days and then another good day. No big milestones, no weigh ins so every time I'd think to blog I was like about what?! emoticon Ryan and I took all three dogs ( two bostons and a lab) for a walk yesterday, it was cold but the roads were okay...the dogs however were little turds!!!!! But it was nice to just be outside without freezing to death.
We also juiced that morning tomatoes, celery, broccoli, carrots apples. And then for lunch we had a big salad with chicken breast, red and yellow peppers, cheese spinach and lettuce, and for dinner we had spaghetti squash with spaghetti sauce. I had zero diet Pepsi and had tons of water. The reason for the very low calories, was because I had been eating horribly the past couple weeks and drinking next to no water again and drinking diet Pepsi from sun up to sun down. SO I said I need to take my two days off and reboot! So I had tons of veggies and water and very low calories compared to all the bad days I had just had, got a pounding migraine from the lack of sugar and caffeine and today I'm doing better but I do feel crappy. I know this is because of withdrawals AGAIN....I wish I could remember how crappy it feel when I have to get myself off all the junk time and time again.
We juiced again today, I took my vitamins and apple cider vinegar and am keeping up on the water. For dinner I'm going to make turkey burgers on thinwiches and I make fries (sweet potatoes with olive oil and seasoning baked) YUMMY!!!
I did not weigh yesterday......I talked myself out of it again! LOL I just want to have this good week now that Ive cut the junk and see where I'm at next Monday. Every sunny day I get here the better I feel, and I'm so glad I haven't just given up like all the other times. I keep getting surprised when I realize its only the end of February, because well in general life I'm like "oh my gosh its almost March?! but in the weight loss journey part of my mind I'm like "Oh my GOSH its ONLY the end of February and I'm still logging in and I'm still have SOME goods days here and there and I still have that guilt of when I'm eating what I shouldn't. Before....in my previous attempts at losing weight I would have never made it this far....and I would have eventually stopped feeling that guilt AT ALL!!! Really, within a couple weeks of going off track I wouldn't have a second thought about eating fast food or just binging on something. But still even when I have a mostly bad month I still have good days or a good meal in those bad days, and every single bite I take of the bad I am thinking about all of my work and I'm thinking about what I should be eating instead of what I am. And that is a good thing! After a little over a year I am still here, I am not 258, I am not more than 258 and I will never be again. I know that FOR A FACT!
As spring gets closer, I will only get better and once again have bigger better adventures this summer and will be in onederland by the end of this year.
Keep pushing everyone!!!!

    I am proud of you for sticking this out. I really think the fact that we are constantly trying, even if we have rough patches, shows that we are in this til the end and that's no small feat. I think once you have a good week, weigh yourself to know where you stand, you will be rebooted and back in your groove and you will just keep on pushing forward like you have been. Woohoo! :D Keep up the great work!

    Hi Heather, that was a really good blog, very insiteful. You are already starting little changes, small patterns of getting into alignment. Small steps will get you there. I am going to take some sparkfriends advice and write a menu and try to stick with it. We don't have to give up the things we enjoy, we just have to get a little more creative, crafty in the kitchen and reduce the bad stuff in recipies we love. I think it would be fun to see our kitchens in a different light, no matter how big or small they are. Some of the best cuisine cooks rocked in a cubicle type kitchen space. When we shop, shop for taste and try different things, seasonings, I love the potato fries alternative you made. And things like that are what I am talking about. Even if you bring your lunch to work, don't bring the usual diet fair, salad and a fruit or something just as blah. Instead bring something that WOWS you when you open your lunchbox. Something you absolutely want to eat and can't wait. But make sure it is a healthier version of the original recipe. Make it something you want to eat. Not something you just want to push aside and feel it's boring or tasteless. Well we can do it, we can all do it, as long as we do small steps. Your on your way there girl. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
