Every morning, I resolve....

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

to do better
to eat within my calorie range
to stay away away from the sweets that come into the office
to drink more water
to not drive through McDonalds for an ice cream cone

....and you know what happens? I end up kicking myself every night for just about every one of those resolutions. I am completely out of control. emoticon
I don't want to be out of control. I don't ever want to go back where I came from. Since September, I have gained 12 pounds. I didn't want it back!

A positive, I am logging my food again and that is how I know how much I am eating over my calorie range every day. *sigh*

    Just take one day at a time. Sometimes, you have to take it just one bite at a time!

    All your goals are measurable EXCEPT "to do better". Frankly, I'd take that one out, because it is WAY too subjective, at least at this point. You are not completely out of control, because if you were, you would not be posting here or tracking your food intake.

Take it a day at a time, try to win as many battles as you can handle each day, and I bet things start to turn around for you!

    If all these goals aren't attainable - why not one each day of the week to work back into thing? Avoid sweets on Fridays because weekends can be tough, do extra-water wednesdays, focus specifically 3 days a week to gaurentee you don't go over your calories. Then as you make these goals, celebrate them - and then spread them to other days!

Remember - every little bit helps!

  You can do this. Stop beating yourself up ... you have identified and owned up to the behavior which led to weight gain. Now, let go of it and move to your action plan! We all stumble at times. It is called being human. Cheering you on to success from the Land of Oz.
