Not a Pretty week...ate too much of the WRONG food...

Tuesday, July 09, 2013

Not even sure where to begin...somewhere around the 4th of July, I started eating a little of this & a little of that & then as the weekend progressed, incl. yesterday & today., I went WAY off course....I am bummed out with my poor attitude & lousy choices that I have made. NO ONE put a gun to my head & said...eat that pie, eat that cake, eat those cookies, have some more cheese & crackers...how bout some fried chicken & don't forget to eat that chocolate cake...oh yeah, the M&Ms, the Kit-Kat candy bar...need I go on? I feel like I should lock myself in a box until I get REALLY serious. Not sure WHO I think that I am kidding. Yes, I have been drinking good amounts of water every day & exercising...biking 3-6 miles daily &/or walking 1-2 miles. I think that there is an inner voice that has been telling me to go ahead & eat this or that...you rode your bike 6 miles this morning...It's like I think...I have EARNED useless, wasteful calories & it will all balance out. Well it has NOT balanced out. I have probably put on 6 lbs. this week. I need to go back to the SP Basics, refocus & JUST DO IT...I KNOW that I can. I will thank you in advance for all the very supportive comments...Take care & have a good week...

    ALTHOUGH THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS "GOOD FOOD" OR "BAD FOOD", IT SURE IS EASY TO EAT THE THINGS THAT ARE NOT THE BEST CHOICES. I HAVE FOUND MYSELF DOING A LOT OF THAT LATELY. FOR ME, I THINK IT IS THE HEAT AND JUST NOT WANTING TO COOK. FOR AWHILE, FRIENDS WERE BRINGING US FRESH THINGS FROM THEIR GARDENS BUT THAT HAS STOPPED FOR AWHILE. AND WE HAVE HAD TWO FUNERALS AND A BIRTHDAY TO GO TO IN THE PAST WEEK. NO CONTROL OVER THE FOOD THERE EITHER SO DO THE BEST YOU CAN. YOU WILL GET BACK INTO THE SWING OF THINGS IN NO TIME. WE HAVE WORKED TOO HARD TO GO BACKWARDS NOW.

    I've found that biking makes me incredibly hungry. Even a short ride makes me want to demolish a heaping mountain of junk food. I have no idea why this is, but I know that when I started biking, I gained (!!!) twenty pounds, because I thought surely I was burning way more calories than the exercise tracker said because I was so gosh-darn hungry. This was not the case, alas. Tracking my food has helped me keep my eating in perspective, although it sure is hard. I've found that if I eat an apple and some string cheese after a ride (and drink about a gallon of water with some Emergen-C in it), I'm not as hungry. Hang in there, Miss Janey! You can do it! emoticon

    I read an article some time back in the New York Times from a dietician who said that requiring exercise for the overweight can backfire because too many will see it as an excuse to overeat. We all WAAAY overestimate the calories burned. In the end, as you have found out, it's all about the food. As someone on these boards said, you get fit in the gym but lose weight in the kitchen.

  This is why we are tortoises. I agree w/Nancy Pat. You have learned a lot, maintained some good practices and need to realign others. Take one right step and even if you fall, you can do better the next day. I've been struggling for the last 2 months, but after a week or so of mixed effort, I have been back on track for the last week. It's a process and a journey. The thing is to not give up. And to realize how far you have already come. Make sure to let us know about your upcoming successes.

    (HUGS) Janey - you learned a lot about yourself when you looked back at your eating. It WILL all balance out because you are not letting those choices of a few days or a week turn into a habit that undoes all the GOOD things you are doing. Recognize that you are doing SOME things really well, and then focus on the others for a while and it REALLY WILL BALANCE OUT - it may take longer than it might have if you hadn't taken the detour, but it will still get you where you are going. (HUGS) now move on.
