Thanks for an honest journal. We all have our ups and downs - those who say they don't aren't being truly honest. Just remember "Today (every day) is the first day of the rest of our lives". Everyday is a good day to start anew! Best wishes for your journey!
8th day ---2/12/13 So far today I could do a lot better--but just because I have messed up some doesn't mean I have to go overboard-- Going to find out next week if I will still have these crazy hours or not maybe I can do better if I am not working such crazy hours, if I am still having to work these crazy hours, I will just have to work around them somehow---
6th day 2/10/13- Today will be better-No eating out, and meals are planned, I slept well but not enough only about 51/2 hours- Got side tracked on my darn computer for hours!!! and ended up not exercising!! I am not making excuses, just telling the cold hard truth!! Computers can be so addictive!! Okay, tomorrow the game plan starts!! Eating foods that only on my meal plan, no matter how I may feel obligated to eat what someone else wants me to eat, I am just going to have to tell this person I really appreciate it but I am on a meal plan to lose weight and they will just have to understand or not--either way I have got to look out for my health and well being and this person doesn't mean any harm, they just want to get rid of all the food everybody keeps bringing them---This is a very challenging situation but I know I will figure it out and do better starting tomorrow--
P.S. --Not even going to track the rest of my food today, way way waaaaay too much!!!! Tomorrow is a new beginning and I will step up to the plate and do this the way it supposed to be done!!! Trail and Error and Lessons Learned--It will work, because I am determined not to give up!!!
5th day 2/9/13 Finally slept good last night and headache is gone. Exercised, It felt great to exercise!! Great workout!! Even though I am feeling better, and did workout. I am still going to have to work on getting my food counts down!! I have eaten waaaaay too much, today!! I am going to shoot for doing better tomorrow, it shouldn't be as hard to do, because I will be eating at home, Today I have ate out two different times, a major diet kill!! Not going to give up, this is just a trail and error, baby steps---learning as I go-- I can do all things through God who strengthens me--- Amen!! and or course my great Spark Friends!!
3rd day 2/7/13 Today is a challenge, with the hours I am wording at work, I am shooting for no more than 1700 calories and measuring all my food, sticking to my meal plan, and exercising, Just for today, this is the best I can do. Still shooting for 1200 calories a day but today is not the day to start it. with the crazy work schedule I have today-So just for today, I will do the best I can with what I have, Plan, Adjust and Adapt-- Thank God for His Support- and thank God for keeping Tim Tation away from me. Because as soon as I was going to eat a Reese Peanut Butter Cup, I was relieved from my job and had to leave the coffee and candy behind--Thank You God for keeping Tim Tation away from me--Amen-- I am going to take a few peanut butter crackers or peanuts with me, for times unexpected things may happen and I have to work over or whatever-- Keep a back up for life's unexpected moments- I am writing this after I have gotten off of work and I know I can figure this out but this crazy work schedule is a big challenge for me to eat less and even get in time to exercise but I will figure out. It's just going to take some adjustment--
2nd day 2/6/13--"Tim Tation" came to visit me with doughnut holes last night and "Will Power" done pretty good at keeping "Tim Tation" away form me. But this morning "Tim Tation" is right here again!! with that bag of doughnut holes and "Will Power" is no where to be found!! Calling "Will Power" on my speed dial---LOL--- @ 10:30 I am really hungry probably from empty calories from the doughnut holes I ate for breakfast!! ( I did do one good thing though--I ate a scrambled egg with my doughnut holes a little protein has got to help some, I hope) I have prayed and put on some soft music today to overcome stress I am feeling about some things going on at my job and life itself-- And it has seemed to help-I know God has my back and everything will be okay. Thank You God--Amen-- @ 10:30am I was really hungry, so I ate a Sloppy Joe Burger, but I had trouble eating it, it just wasn't what I wanted but I ate it anyway. I have planned the rest of my day's meals out and it just going to be yogurt and peanuts for supper and some turkey slices with cheese for snack, because I have already eaten 980 calories and it isn't even noon yet!! But if I play my cards right I can still do okay today-- Well, after 2300 calories I have officially caved in to Tim Tation but tomorrow will be better. I have already planned my meal and work out time for tomorrow. That is where I failed today I didn't plan and ended up failing-" If you fail to plan, you plan to fail---Amen!! Lesson learned!!
After a week long binge I am back--This is my 1st entry of my 1st day of starting over- I slept really late today because my sleep has been disturbed at night because of all the junk food I have been eating--looking forward to sleeping better with healthy eating and exercise- I exercised first thing this morning and it actually helped a slight headache I had go away-- Ate oatmeal for breakfast after I exercised with coffee A healthy habit I am starting is not eating in front of the tv or computer but at the kitchen table-and on pretty days if it possible spending some time outdoors--and doing some outdoor activities and planning meals ahead of time.and limiting my time on social networking to one time a day, to avoid spending too much time on the computer and therefore slipping back into old destructive habits- Ate a apple and peanut butter for snack and pinto beans, greens and steam veges for lunch and a hamburger patty with the leftover steam veges from lunch for supper-I have drunk 64 oz, of water- Besides the water, I have only drunk coffee and 8 oz of tea sweetened with Spenda at supper, and I took two ibuprofen tablets for a slight headache at supper- It was a pretty good day!!
