Mon, 6 Jan 2014 19:25:03 EST TAKING WATER WITH YOU http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5426323 I HAVE TAKEN A CONTAINER OF WATER WITH ME, JUST ABOUT EVERYWHERE I GO, FOR QUITE SOME TIME--AT LEAST THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS. IT DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE--IN THE AMOUNT OF WATER I DRINK----ON WEEKENDS, OR THE OCCASIONAL TIME THAT I AM AWAY FROM MY NORMAL ROUTINE & DON'T HAVE MY WATER BOTTLE WITH ME; I FIND THAT I DON'T DRINK AS MUCH & I REALLY NOTICE IT BY THE END OF THE DAY Fri, 19 Jul 2013 10:44:12 EST EATING ON THE CLOCK http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5408866 DURING THE WEEK; I BASICALLY USE THIS PRACTICE--IT IS EASIER TO DO WHEN I AM AT WORK. DURING THE WEEKEND;HOWEVER, IT DOESN'T WORK AS WELL. Tue, 2 Jul 2013 18:41:22 EST FOCUS ON THE POSITIVE http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5398549 I CAN COMPLETE A DIFFICULT EXERCISE ROUTINE AT THE GYM <BR> <BR> I CAN FIT MORE COMFORTABLY INTO MY CLOTHES <BR> <BR> I CAN TURN DOWN BEING OFFERED A COOKIE; AND INSTEAD CHOOSE A HEALTHY SNACK Sat, 22 Jun 2013 20:11:07 EST PLANNING AHEAD http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5383379 I WILL CUT UP VEGGIES TODAY TO GO IN MY BREAKFAST TOMORROW; ALREADY HAVE A LUNCH PUT TOGETHER FROM LEFTOVERS FROM SAT EVENING MEAL.

TO ENJOY MY FAMILY TO THE FULLEST AND TO TRY TO IMPART TO THEM THE IMPORTANCE OF TAKING CARE OF SELF FIRST. IF YOU CAN'T TAKE CARE OF YOUR OWN BODY; HOW ARE YOU GOING TO BE ABLE TO TAKE CARE OF ANYONE ELSE. I LOVE THE LIFE I AM LIVING NOW. AND PLAN TO CONTINUE EATING HEALTHY AND EXERCISING REGULARLY. <em>252</em> Thu, 6 Jun 2013 20:53:14 EST WEIGH INS http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5363875 I WILL CHOOSE MONDAY AM AS MY WEIGH IN DAY-- Tue, 21 May 2013 20:17:53 EST CARDIO INTERVALS http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5360539 TRIED CARDIO INTERVALS WITH MY WORKOUT LAST NIGHT AT THE GYM. STARTED WITH 5 MIN ON ELLIPTICAL-THEN A ROUND OF WEIGHT MACHINES, ETC. THEN BACK TO THE ELLIPTICAL 2 MORE TIMES. WORKED UP A GOOD SWEAT. FELT VERY GOOD AFTERWARD AND DID SEE A DROP IN THE SCALE THIS AM. Sat, 18 May 2013 21:03:12 EST EATING MORE?! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5357878 BELIEVE IT OR NOT; MY PROBLEM IS THAT I NEED TO EAT MORE. MY CALORIE INTAKE IS NOT AS MUCH AS WHAT I AM BEING TOLD IT SHOULD BE. I HAVE A VERY HARD TIME MAKING MYSELF EAT MORE. SINCE I HAVE BATTLED MY WEIGHT ALMOST MY ENTIRE LIFE. IT SEEMS LIKE I WOULD BE UNDOING ALL MY HARD WORK; HOWEVER, WHEN I DO EAT MORE (ALL NUTRITOUS FOODS) MY WEIGHT DOES SEEM TO GO DOWN. <BR> <BR> I WILL MAKE A CONSCIOUS EFFORT TO KEEP MY CALORIE INTAKE UP IN THE COMING DAYS.
