Here I go again on my own...


Thursday, June 27, 2013

Going down the only road I've ever known....like a drifter I was born to walk alone....

Anyone know that song? Iguess that it reflects my age...

I am so glad that everyday I have the chance for a do over. I started then stalled, started back then stalled again. Not knowing quite what to do with myself...so here I am again.

I have had a pretty good two and a half weeks. I am trying to carb cycle following Chris Powell. I have to say, it is kinda hard for me. I don't know why, but feel like I can't do it some days. I think it is because I am not real good at packing my snacks. Breakfast and lunch, check, snacks....boring, and then I am STARVING by the time I get home because I skipped my afternoon snack. I still feel positive, but a little down on myself as well. I have been looking at the atkins diet, and think I might try that out...I just want to find that thing that works for me....

I walk at least twice a day during my breaks at work, at least twice a week I walk during my lunch as well. I have skipped McDonald's for breakfast for three weeks now!! That was my biggest accomplishment, I know it doesn't sound like much, but since I was pregnant with my now three year old son, I would stop by on a daily basis order my egg mcmuffin, or the sausage mcmuffin....wow, the money I am saving now!! LOL. For breakfast now I am drinking protein shake with some fruit added so that I get more flavor. lunch consists of salad, or some type of protein with vegetables, and dinner is ok, however, I find it easy to eat some bad stuff when I get home...a hand ful of cheetos or taste the mac and cheese I am giving the kiddo's.

Gotta work on my after work food routine. I also have to add some strength training to my evenings. I don't want to look like this any more. I don't want to have my own cheering section when I run....I don't want to look pregnant after I eat, and I don't want to feel like I have to worry if I sit on a folding chair...

I want to win. I want to change. I want to continue my road of getting up every morning trying to get it right. I hope I got it right today. I hope that when I weigh in on Saturday, I see something. I am tired of my loop I am in.
I am becoming a Froot Loop!! LOL...

So, I can use all the support I can get. I call out. I do need help. I don't want to do it on my own.

    My McD habit was lunch-it's right across the street from my office...it was one of the first things I let go, too. I think it's a great accomplishment to put fast food in perspective-it can be so seductive.....

    emoticon On dumping the McD's breakfast habit. I used to eat out for breakfast frequently and made a goal to change that by setting up how many times per week I would eat out. Like you, I have saved money and calories by not stopping for my "daily fix."

Keep it up and set small, achievable goals and you'll get where you want to be. May I suggest that you pack your snack at least two or three times a week? Even just an apple would help keep the mindless snacking somewhat at bay and add another serving of fruit to your day.

    I also had a McDonald's breakfast habit, so I know how hard it is to break it! That is a huge accomplishment. emoticon
