Just do it!!

Saturday, March 09, 2013

I was down in the dumps for a while,but now I am feeling better. I am just tired of pushing! But I know it is for the better of my life. Usually when I feel this way,I would just give up and do what I want for months on end,and tell my self who cares,eat how you want and be happy,but After a few months I was not happy at all!! So like I have said in most my blogs I am done with that! I was so happy 2 wks ago to see the numbers on the scale going down. Then to see I was out of the 170s it was awesome,then I ran out of groceries and it went down hill( I dont drive,never did,dont even know how) I have to wait around for when my hubby wants to go shopping,then I'm stuck eating crappy foods!! So I got on the scale this week,and I weighed in at 171,and it depressed me! All that work and feeling so happy just to be short lived!! But I have to realize that is a number that measures my weight,and not my worth!!! Sure I want the numbers to go down,but I'm not going to let the number define who I am!!!

I really need to start logging my foods,but man I just hate doing it! it is so tedious for me. And I have to get on the computer every time i eat something. Or i total all my foods,then I'm laying in bed for the night and realize I forgot something. Or this is the biggest for me,I hate seeing when I go over in calories!!!! Plus when I was on my fitness pal,I would log in my foods,and everyone would send me messages lecturing me about not eating tofu and almonds all day!! then i was embarrassed to post my foods and felt just stupid about it,but that was then,and this is now. I need to get over it and move on. Plus this is not my fitness pal!! I like spark people much better emoticon

Basically I know what I have to do...I just need to do it!!! If I do every thing I can,then i will feel good knowing that I am giving my all!! And I am doing ok now,but not my all. It is time to step it up!!

    On SP, you can keep your logs private. No one has to see your food intake, or your exercise. That is strictly up to you.

    Also, if the computer logging is a problem, get a notebook and write it down. That way, the notebook will be your go-to, and if you want to log it in later on the computer, you'll have everything right in front of you. You don't even have to itemize if you don't want. You can add foods like 'chicken dinner' and put the total calories, carbs, fats and proteins.

    But, please track your food and exercise in some way. That's the only way you'll know if you're eating the right amount of calories, carbs, fats and proteins to help with your weight loss.

    Here's to you logging your food intake. Near my own 3 year anniversary. I have always had difficulty maintaining my weight and my weight loss. Try it, you'll like it!

    What matters is that you utilize the tools that you have available to you. I won't lie, tracking is a pain in my a$$ and I absolutely hate it. But I do it anyway, because I know it's helping me. It becomes second nature after a while.

    I absolutely have to track. If I don't, I'll be at one of two ends of extremes. I didn't track for a while, and found out I was eating only about 700 calories a day. Or the other extreme, ill eat way too many calories. It's a life saver for me. If you have a smartphone, get the food tracker app on it. It's a lot quicker than logging onto a computer. This morning when I was laying in bed trying to wake up, I grabbed my phone and logged the breakfast that I had planned out. That way when I got up, all I had to do was make it and eat. You can do this!
