Back on the horse!

Monday, March 08, 2010

Ater resting yesterday and drowning my sorrows in an evening of bad food, I woke up and got back on track! I was able to get on the elliptical today and workout or 62 minutes. I meant to stop at 60 but was reading a book and lost track of time:) That never happens, usually every minute stinks.
I watched a commercial for the 6 week body makeover for the 100th time. I have the whole program at home and have done it for a week or two at a time and lost weight each time. In fact, the week before the weigh ins and before I start starving myself, I eat according to that plan and always drop the first 7 lbs in a few days.
I never stick with it very long. It is very restrictive. I think I like just trying to eat healthy and in certain combinations. It is easier to stay with.
I wish I could figure out how to make food less important in my life. I just had my very favorite protien shake breakfast that tastes FANTASTIC but an hour later, no minutes later, I have 100 things I want to eat in my head. I love breakfast foods and cannot even have them in the house.
I think I will study today to try to get my mind off of it.

    Good Luck- You can do it. I'm the same way- I have to be able to eat what I want, or I go overboard. Try using the nutritian tracker. You can even put it in ahead of time and plan out how much you want. You want that (insert item here), fine... plan it out, and figure out how much you CAN have that will fit into your plan. I LOVE cookies, so if I know I'm going to have a cookie day, I'll put them in the tracker in the morning, and that way I know I get three cookies throughout the day... whenever I want them... but only three. You can do it!

    Good luck this week!

    I have to agree that doing something so restrictive that you have a hard time sticking to it probably will just end up in you gaining in the end. It will be a slow, steady process, and you can do it!

    Congrats on getting up this morning and doing what you know has to be done, accomplishing your goals is only a matter of time. :)

    Thank you so much. I didnt realize until today that people commented on my blog and it really encourages me.


    I dont have a support system locally and this really gives me a boost that I cant get anywhere else. It inspires me every morning to wake up and get on the elliptical and log in to SP and find such amazing encouragement.

    I hope that the longer I am on here the more I can help others as well.

    Good luck! I know you can do it! I've been on Spark for about two weeks now and have managed to stick to some kind of plan and lost 3 pounds. It is slow progress but at least I am losing!! I enjoyed your blogs and found them encouraging. I can't even imagine having to lose weight to keep my job. If we take it one day at a time we can do it!! Have a great week:) emoticon
