One of those days

Wednesday, April 28, 2010

Okay so I am having an "I'm on a diet, leave me alone day" I suddenly realized after dinner that I am having a diet day. I woke up early, did a little cardio, ate some breakfast and woke up my amazing kids but it became apparent to me that today would be one of those days after I couldn't resist finishing off my sons yogurt, not a bad thing in itself but it continued. I threw away my sons left over french fries at lunch because if I looked at them any longer I'd eat them and as I as shoveling in my daughters bread crusts after dinner I thought 'this has to stop'. This is day 3 of my trainers special diet and I'd really like to yell at him. I hate the word diet, i just can't think of anything else to call it. It's not that bad, I know that and it's all things I eat anyway so why do I feel like I'm depriving myself of the things I know are soooooo bad for me!
So to finish off my day I say this to myself...Dear Amanda, put on your big girl panties and deal with it! Your pants are looser than they've been since you bought them and you feel so much better about yourself when you are healthy so in the words of my amazing dance teacher, SUCK IT UP! I love you, don't be so mean to me!

    It's not a diet, Amanda, it's healthy eating! Forget about the word diet. Lose it from your vocabulary. Just remember that you want to eat healthy. You can eat just about anything, only in moderation!

    Hey Amanda

    Don't think of it as a diet, think of it as a healthy lifestyle change that is going to keep you around for your children. The word "diet" is tabu anyway. Nobody really wants to be on one, we just want to eat what we like when we want it. But in order for us to be healthy, we have to make lifestyle changes in the way we eat. There are plenty of healthy good food out there. I find that searching the sparkspeople recipes, you can find a lot of good healthy stuff out there, check it out if you haven't already.

    In the meantime don't be so hard on yourself. You will win, just practice mind over matter.

    Rock on. Keep those big girl panties pulled up. It is tough to do it and keep it going. Let your trainer support you... let him/her know what you are going through. I am willing to bet that it is nothing he/she haven't heard before, and I am sure might even be able to offer some suggestions to help you out.

    Trust the process. Do right, things go right.
