Lets give this a try...

Tuesday, July 02, 2013

I really like all the things this site has to offer! I know that sounds like I work for them but no, that's not the case. I tried blogging before but it was kind of hard getting started. Everyone talks about the therapeutic benefits of writing so I am going to try this along with the fact that it will raise my accountability. I hope maybe this will be an easy way for some of my friends and I to get together on our goals as well. Im up early today. I feel pretty good not fatigued, just extremely thirsty. I don't know why its so hard for me to drink water but that little water tracker glass moving up does make me want to drink it just so I can see it rise....sad I know :-) I am heading to kickboxing today at 9. I hope my energy will be higher than last week. I didn't lose anything yesterday because I drank two wine coolers and lemonade that really put me over. I really have to just let the alcohol go to lose weight its just that being home alone makes me think I deserve a treat. I know I need to break the link between those two in my mind. Savor my alone time not just by indulging in things I cant do when Im not alone. I know I act like a deprived child, I cant do this when I want so I do it when I can to counteract the deprivation at other times. I think really the issue is having relaxed and pleasurable things built into my routine so I don't feel so deprived on the regular while meeting my normal daily responsibilities. Do healthy productive fun things. Ill have to make a list of those :-) Well that was a lot of sharing. Guess I'm off to a good start. I hope this makes me more emotionally healthy and able to manage my weight long term. Faretheewell, hope yall have a great day!

    I fast two days a week, which gives me enough in hand to relax and have a beer at least on one day of the weekend. I need that day off, or I would simply give up the program.

    Try replacing one of the coolers ,with a glass of water. I to have trouble with water, but it is not that I am drinking something else, besides for morning coffee, I don't drink allot. Also you may want to try flavored water, but check to be sure you don't get the ones with calories. Some of them are really good.
