Falling off the boat again.

Saturday, July 06, 2013

Some days I just don't care. I don't give a crap about my health or what I am eating. I want to eat something really bad, I want to eat what everyone else around me is eating. Today is one of those days. I had three slices of pizza for dinner. Way too many calories, but at the time, I didn't care. I was enjoying it. I still don't care as I am writing this, I ate something yummy, it was great. I will probably care tomorrow. I don't weigh myself after a day like this because I already know what the outcome will be. Also, last night, around 3am, my neighbors got home from drinking all night and woke me up. So, I ate two lean pockets pita w/ spinach avocado dip and a lean cuisine french bread pizza, and then I went back to bed. Here is me, gaining back what little weight I did lose... emoticon

I keep getting this:

*The number of calories you should eat to manage your weight depends on many factors, including how many calories you burn through exercise. It may seem counterintuitive, but eating too little while burning too much can actually hurt your weight-management goals and the outcome of your fitness program. If you are consistently burning more calories than recommended here, please update your fitness settings as soon as possible. This may adjust your calorie ranges (if necessary) so you can reach your goals in a timely and healthy manner.

So, maybe that is why I tend to overeat at the end of the day. Going to readjust now....

    I love your honesty! You are a force of energy and excitment in the sparkasphere! I'd say you are at a point of such transformation. You are rejecting your old habits and past choices! They aren't satisfying you like before!
I see you are a mom. How do you set boundaries for your angel? You know what is best and when things need limits...because you love her. Same idea for yourself. You need to love you- unconditionally too! So set a limit to help you be your best! She will respect you for this! She is counting on you! She is you!
If you eat for reasons other than hunger or nourishment.... try to face these " reasons". Anger. Fear. Disappointment. Bored. Look at them and see what you may learn about yourself at that moment.
Be accountable. Be forgiving. Be strong in your new knowledge! This is your power now. This will satisfy you more than any flavor or fancy phone! You are better just for having that bad moment! It is an opportunity to grow!

    Hi there! emoticon

Havin' a rough day? I got that same message when I started out! You & I are having similar experiences! We can't un-ring the bell. NOW is the only time that matters! I may be wrong, but I think as long as you are doing all the right things MOST of the time, then you can treat yourself when the occasion arises. That probably doesn't include "conjuring up an occasion" for the hell of it! emoticon

So just resolve to make some great choices this coming week and carry on! You can do this! I really think you can! Keep on sparkin'! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    When I am feeling out of control, I am not around a computer, and my phone isn't that fancy. Thanks for the tip though! Something to keep in mind whenever I do get a fancy phone.

    Yep, much better. After adjusting my fitness settings, I was only 31 calories over my range. That explained a lot! emoticon

  When you feel out of control, that would be a great time to read some of the motivation articles on Spark. Might help, couldn't hurt.
