To wake up a 1/2 hour earlier than I usually do so I don't have to rush around and drive to work like a maniac!

At my work we have a little apple shaped bowl filled with all kinds of sweets. I normally have a hand full of chocolate kisses or whatever chocolate we have in the apple bowl. I only had one piece today and that was huge for me!!!

To pack my lunch! I've been eating out all week and it's expensive and has been reaping havoc on my calorie intake.

I had half of my lunch early, a mini-bagel-bread and cream cheese, instead of having the tempting girl scout cookie. I will have the 'second half' of lunch later - spreading out helps me eat less.

To not light up a cigarette with my morning coffee. Instead, I put on a patch. I've been smoke free for 29 hours now.

Took my 8 year old out to brunch as he had the day off school. He had cheeseburger and fries. I had McCanns Oatmeal...and it was delicious!

I went out to eat lunch with a friend who also joined Spark and we both chose items that were recommended as being better for you. We learned from Spark which items to choose.

To follow through with the Biopsy I had done on my breast today. I was scared at first and felt like cancelling the appointment. But, I prayed about the procedure and went to the appointment. Now I can't exercise until Monday emoticon

To roll out of bed and go do my 60 minutes of cardio instead of sleeping longer. *sigh*... It was a nice warm cozy bed too.

I decided to run/walk three miles instead of the usual two.

3/14/08 2:13 P

I went for my morning walk and I did the entire two miles. Despite feeling lethargic & fussy. After breakfast I went out in the garden and did some digging; got my hands good and dirty! emoticon

I was sleepy and wanting to eat some high calorie foods because I thought it would help pep me up. But I decided to exercise instead; I put on a dance workout video, and sweated for 45 minutes, so now I'd rather have a healthy snack like fruit and yogurt. emoticon

To weigh in. I am down 3 lbs! I went out to dinner last night, so I was a bit nervous and almost postponed the weigh-in.

For some reason I woke up humgry this morning. After eating a piece of toast and instant oatmeal, I began to look into the cubbards for WHATEVER!! I found myself nibbling, and wasn't even hungry. I decided to go for a bike ride, and get out of the house. My husband and I rode 10 miles!!! I felt wonderful and quite empowered!! Nothing like alittle exercise to clear the head and get back on track. We DO have a choice!!

Went to get my tires rotated this morning (a quick errand on the way to try out a new gym), and ended up buying NEW tires because mine were worn out. Instead of sitting in the waiting room, I walked the giant parking lot for 35 minutes.

Then I went and tried out a gym I've never been to - just as I'd planned - and did another 30 minutes on the elliptical trainer.

I went out at lunch to find some new shoes-while me feet are bloated! Depressed about how horrible my feet look I started thinking about stopping at one or ALL the fast food places on the way back. I even drove right up to one and then backed away! I came back to the office wanting to eat something more something better than the lean cuisine meal but I didn't. I ate my meal and I'm satisfied. I'm havin a bigger dinner tonight so I wanted to save the calories anyway! emoticon

Gotobefit...I know just how you feel. I love Godfather Pizza it is great. I to gave up a fried chicken wing and dinner roll. My office friend was going to through it out so I took it. Just like the old me I thought of eating it even though I just had lunch. But instead I looked for someone else to take it to. My boss did not eat so I gave it to him. It was hard but it made me feel better as soon as he took it from my hand. It was just like a weight was lifted off my shoulders. I was sooo obligated to see that that chicken and roll be consumed that I was about to consume it myself. Thank God I passed the buck and I hope I will have the will power to do it when I am faced with a situation like that again. emoticon

I found my son's black liquorice in the the cupboard and stuck one in my mouth without thinking...but then spit it out (I love liqourice)

Told my bf I couldn't go out for lunch and ate a salad at work instead. We're going out of town for the weekend to his parents' and no one cooks much so it's going to be hard enough to stay on track!

Today I decided that when I ate my lunch, I'd take a bite, put down my fork and take a drink of water before I was able to take another bite. Success, I'm STUFFED! :)

I ate a healthy lunch, even though I was starving and all I wanted was junk!

3/14/08 12:59 P

My good decision today was to have a pork chop and corn for lunch instead of a hamburger or a chicken sandwich...I'm a college student who lives in the dorms and those were my choices today!

I have already made two good decisions today. I ran 9 miles and I ate oatmeal with fruit for breakfast. I just hope my good decisions last the rest of today... it is FRIDAY!!!

This is kinda a snowballing decision... I've had to work on it very hard... but according to everyone its in my best interest...

My good decision for the day is to not talk to my ex.

Yesterday when I was shopping with my sister and her family and my daughter...we went to mcDonalds to eat a snack...everyone got french fries or sandwiches...I choose a salad and stuck with that...

Also when we went to Olive Garden I preplanned everything that I was going to order and stuck to that...

Pre-planning is really necessary for me to stay on track! emoticon

Wasn't today, but yesterday I was really craving chips & dip. I wanted some soooo bad, but since I had just eaten my supper and knew I wasn't hungry, I drank my water and got myself interested in doing some stretching. Before I knew it I had survived the craving - and it was a bad one that had been working on me ALL day!

To work out for 15 extra minutes this morning. I was going to be below my weekly goal for cardio minutes (although calorie burned would be where it needed to be or a bit higher). I decided that I was at the gym, I might as well keep going and meet the goal. I did and am 400 calories over my calories burned goal for the week.

awww I love bunnies. I turned down free shots at the bar last night. I didn't want to drink because I didn't want the extra calories... but they were FREE because the bartender is my roommate... but I didn't take em. Go me.

3/14/08 9:27 A

I woke up early before my kids and went for a walk...I saw a bunny hopping down the path...pretty neat for a city

Efter all the problems of lossing weight to stop wetting my pants (lossing 176lbs) I returned to the gym accepting using a product for my weak bladder and had a great workout. Several ladies came and asked where I got my corset from, so I had to tell them I had a operation to remove my 35 cms stomach skin and needed this to support my stomach muscles until the incision line had healed completely. They understand everything about having a weak bladder and applauded me for keeping at it. When I return to the hospital for my check up I will ask my surgeon to if possible for him to refer me back to the Gynaecological department. I hope he will explain, that I have done everything humanly possible under my own steam to quit wetting my pants. If he can't help me I will return to my own GP and ask her to send me return. I will not give up or get weak, the rain clouds have to clear at some stage!

This morning I looked up the Iced Capp and donut I really wanted at Tim Horton's and realized that for the same 8 WW points (400 calories), I could have a glass of milk, my daily bowl of oatmeal, and a banana. This only took 6 points, plus it gave me one of my dairy and one of my fruit requirements. And I will not crash from a sugar high later and eat something because it's convenient. Sometimes it's hard to do the right thing. My hips and buns will thank me later. Hope you all make a good decision today!
