*WARNING* - Debby Downer Blog

Monday, May 27, 2013

Last Tuesday I posted a blog that things were going well. In a matter of one week, I feel like it's all went to H#!! in a handbag.

Wednesday was good. Thursday - Had Mexican for dinner and ice cream for dessert. Friday - Had lunch out and then got a migraine (Oh yes, the third one in a month). Saturday - Ate TERRIBLE - 3700 calories. WTHeck??? Sunday - Grilled out but had three beers with dinner. Today - Ate breakfast out and did not choose healthy.

So, how is it that one is doing well and then it all goes to heck. I don't know. I truly feel like it's a mental thing. I just haven't been in a good mind set with much lately - weight (not good), exercise (not good), work (SUCKS). I generally feel blah and that is not leading to healthy habits right now. I eat well for a few days, feel great and then something stresses me out and it all goes down hill.

I have no plan right now. I'm sick of always making a plan that I don't stick to. In fact, I'm sick of plans in general. I have nothing really positive to say at the moment. I just wanted to blog and let you know what I was thinking.

    Hey, I'm the same - one day I just...don't do what I'm supposed to, then fall off the wagon.

I'm reading a book which says something like - people who make good decisions and succeed usually rely on their experience. However, their experience is likely to include times where they made bad decisions - that's what gives the experience to base new, good decisions and succeed in the long term. So don't beat yourself up - were you alone at the weekend, eating all those calories? If you were with friends or family, think of the lovely memories you made yourself, and congratulate yourself for taking time out from your stressful job. You can always start again (again like me!), a little wiser for the experience.

    Many emoticon my dear emoticon .

I don't think you're being too hard on yourself. You're frustrated (can totally relate).

Sorry to hear about the migraines.

" In a matter of one week, I feel like it's all went to H#!! in a handbag. "
* When I went from 225 to 210. I didn't have good weeks and bad weeks eating-wise. I would eat exactly as I always had with either one meal or snacking period changed every month or so (when I was sufficiently used to the previous change). The weight loss was slow but more sustainable.


"Saturday - Ate TERRIBLE - 3700 calories. WTHeck??? Sunday - Grilled out but had three beers with dinner. "
* That's common for a Memorial day weekend with a cookout. I would be more towards 5000-6000 depending on the deserts. If you wouldn't judge anyone else for doing likewise... (would you?)


" I generally feel blah and that is not leading to healthy habits right now. I eat well for a few days, feel great and then something stresses me out and it all goes down hill. "
* Every time I've ever tried to eat well, sticking to a low calorie plan, I've lasted a day or two and then fallen back. I only try to eat well if there is an event coming up and only try to do so the day before and day of said.


"I have no plan right now. I'm sick of always making a plan that I don't stick to. In fact, I'm sick of plans in general. "
* You have no idea how long I have waited for you to write this.

My suggestion, as one who cares about you, is to make decisions to make actual small and doable changes that over time will lead to great sustainable long term results. This year I'm gradually adding vegetables (5 per months) and will try to whittle down my daily chocolate consumption (100 daily calories every month).

As bad as my eating is in general, I regularly eat 4 servings of fruit, 3 servings of lean dairy, 1-3 servings of healthy proteins and 2 servings of nuts/seeds per day.

This took time to get to. It's the reason my weight, under the current stress that I am, is in the 210's and not 240's/250's

Again, emoticon emoticon

p.s. Please feel free to email me.

    I can so relate. I am dragging myself kicking and screaming out of one of those very same situations. I am looking at all I have accomplished and making that my motivation.

You can do it too. And beer - I have beer everyday! I switched to a lower calorie one when I decided to loose weight. Not sure where you are, but in Canada we have canadian 67 - 67 calories per bottle. There is also Michelob light that tastes pretty good - 85 calories a bottle.

Don't be too hard on yourself. Just take it one day at a time.
