Overcoming temptation with one small phrase.

Sunday, June 14, 2015      6 comments

When I am faced with temptation I have started repeating to myself, "That doesn't help me reach my goal." It reminds me of the reasons I should skip the treat without making me feel deprived. Sure I can eat that treat, or skip that workout, but ... Read more

Okay, so last week I weighed and thought I had gained despite all the hard work I had put in. This derailed me a bit and I got discouraged. I stopped counting my calories as consistently, drinking water, working out and most destructive of all I... Read more

I did everything right this week & somehow I gained. Sure it was only .6 of a pound, but a gain is a gain. Usually if I gain I can pin point things that need improvement, but this time I really don't know. Okay I'm done having a pity party... Read more

How do you combat pushy friends?

Friday, April 10, 2015      5 comments

I have a friend that every time we hang out she conveniently has all my favorite sugary treats available. It would be fine if they were just available, but she just won't quit trying to get me to "have some" and it's starting to frustrate me. ... Read more

A little harder, but I did it.

I was up a little later today because I didn't get home until 9:00. I had to wind down a little before going to bed. This made it a little more challenging to get up & work out, but I did it. I know it will get easier, so I will keep pushing for... Read more

Tuesday, March 31, 2015      9 comments

If I were evaluating my relationship with food, with 1 being unhealthy and 10 being the healthiest possible, what would my score be? If you had asked me that at the beginning of November I would have said 1 or lower if that were possible. I... Read more

I've really been struggling with a craving for sweets this week. When it first started, I tried to ignore it. Then when it continued for a period of time I tried eating fruit or other substitutions to satisfy it. Finally, I thought I would indul... Read more
