7/6/11: Day 3?
Well, I didn't think about it at the time, but the recipe I used for zucchini bread had sugar and brown sugar in it. I only ate one piece. Once I realized it, I quit. Arghhh...that stuff'll definitely sneak up on ya! While I was in the kitchen ... Read more
7/5/11: Day 2
Another day without sugar, sweets, soda. Instead of getting ice cream while at the grocery store, I made it out with what I went for and ate the snack that I'd packed for work but hadn't eaten. Went out to dinner with my other half to my favor... Read more
7/4/11: Day 1
Today went well. No candy. No sweets. No soda. My problem is once I start, I can't stop. Sugar's harder to quit than alcohol was.
Feeling a little anxious, uncertain, overwhelmed, blue...good thing is that I know it won't last; that it's ... Read more
7/3/11: Day 0
I cannot believe how hard it is for me to give up sugar. I did great following the diet recommendations and staying within my ranges for a couple months then in June I started struggling. Some candy, cookies, donuts at work, ice cream in the hou... Read more
Well, mindless eating/grazing has got to go! This past week, it was sodas and appetizers at dinner (they were complements of the instructor). Gained 5 pounds between that and the ice cream dinners prior to leaving for the class. I managed to ... Read more
June 7 Update
It's been nearly 3 months since I started SP and, looking back, I've actually made a lot of changes! My weight's slowly dropping, my portions are back under control, I'm eating a LOT healthier, eating at home more than out, making sure I've got... Read more
Well, I let myself get off a regular schedule of working out at least 10 minutes before work or on my days off. After nearly 2 weeks of not getting any good cardio, I need to make a concerted effort to get back on track and get moving. I was d... Read more
Attack of the sweet tooth
Well, so much for following my healthy eating pattern today. Totally blew it. Somebody brought in donuts today at work and I managed to resist for about 5 hours then I yielded. Unfortunately, once I eat something sweet, I can't eat just one. ... Read more
Food log "additive"
There are many little daily goals that I'd like to accomplish related to sleep, food, wellness, exercise, and finances. I actually have a column on the right of my food log (one page a day) that has these grouped and listed with check boxes in ... Read more
12 hr vs 8 hr challenge
Okay, I'm trying to get on a schedule that I can pretty much stick to even on my days off. Waking up isn't so much the problem--the radio goes off at 5 am. However, when I get to bed seems to come out of a random number generator. Working 12 ... Read more
An overall good day
After the funk from yesterday, today was great! Had a bunch of errands to run in town and decided to walk between appointments. It felt great! The sun's been out and a cool breeze, lots of green and birdies chirping. My mood's improved, which i... Read more
Stay in today...
One of these days, I'll remember to stay in today--yesterday has come and gone and I can't do anything to change it; tomorrow isn't even here yet and (not being able to predict the future) I have no idea what it will bring. Today, this moment i... Read more
Odd version of mashed potatoes
A couple of weeks ago in the cafeteria at work, one of the dietitians was serving samples of what looked to be kinda like mashed potatoes but not quite. They were really good too. Turns out it was pureed cooked cauliflower with garlic, kosher ... Read more
It's amazing how much our society is focused on fast food, quick fixes, alcohol, and using sex to sell a whole gamete of products. Portions are out of proportion. I just read a blog on a 600+ pound woman who wanted to be in the record books fo... Read more
keeping the momentum going
Just got back from a 3-day road trip. Feels good to be back home! It's a challenge to find healthy options when you're on the road. Unlike prior attempts at weight loss, I didn't let this trip derail me. I was able to get my walk/run in every d... Read more
