New Streak For Me

Thursday, September 12, 2013

Lately I have been eating a lot of junk foods and not eating breakfast. I eat cookies for a mid day snack instead. I have gotten in to the habit of eating at least two candy bars a day. And having the full sugar and fat drink when I go out for coffee. I have not put a lot of weight back on only about two pounds but this is two pounds in the wrong direction for my scale to go.

I walked to the library yesterday and got a good book that put the Spark back in me and I am going to get back on track. In the book it talked about eating more protein and not white flour and sweets. I don't like eating breakfast but don't mind drinking a protein shake so I went to the store last night and got some. As I was writing this blog I got feeling hungry and light headed. I got a shake drank it fast and now I feel alright.

When I first started on Spark People I was drinking slimfast drinks for breakfast. I think I will do this again. They are easy to drink and start my day off right. I think I will replace my sugary coffee drink with slimfast. I am going to do this 3 to 4 times a week. On the other days I will eat eggs, greek yogurt or cottage cheese and fruit for breakfast.

My streak that I plan to do is for 3 months I will eat no candy, cookies, cakes or white flour. I think 3 months is a long enough streak to get me started getting healthier.

    emoticon Kathryn!! emoticon I'm rooting for you!!! When I cut out white flour and white sugar, that is when I saw my weight begin to drop consistently every week. It's amazing to me how those two things really hindered me! They kept me grazing in the evenings. Kept me thinking of food all the time!

I wish you great success. I know you are a woman of commitment. YOU can do what you set your mind to! Look for great victory from you!!!

    Three months should get those better habits set. I made it through Aug. with no candy and still have not had any, I am not saying I don't look and think about it, but I just tell myself "no you really don't need it'. We should care enough about ourselves to make our health a priority. You'll have to keep us updated on how you are doing. You'll feel so much better for doing this.

    One day at a time, emoticon I have Slimfast shakes on a regular basis and really enjoy them.

    I know you can do this! Just take it one day, if not one hour at a time. Before you know it, your 3 months will have passed and you'll feel so good! emoticon
