Day 7

Thursday, June 21, 2012

First I have to say that I had a rough night father I blogged. I went to have a few chips which turned into more and then it was another thing and ended in a binge emoticon. So having fessed up to my oops, I can say that I'm at 1405 right now and I won't be eating anything else due to the fact that I'm off to bed as soon as I'm done blogging. I did 45 minutes on the elliptical, 200 crunches and several walking trips with the kids today.

WHY the need for self-destruction!? I ask myself this almost daily. My exercise is good but I can only get at most 4 good days before I binge or fall off the wagon. I know that I have support here and at home but I guess I need more. I have a few ideas that I'm going to use with myself to make me more accountable to myself and I know that it won't be easy but I CAN DO IT!! (positive self talk) emoticon
Enough ranting, thanks for stopping in and I hope you can find your self-destruct button and remove it as I hope to. emoticon

    I now buy the reduced fat small snack bags b/c I know I don't stop until I finish the bag. It is more expensive this way but I figure it's only a sometime treat :) We all fall off the wagon & hopefully we learn from our falls emoticon emoticon

    We all do it... But you just get back up and plug along until the next time. I truly believe those times get lesser and lesser as we progress. You are doing great and being aware is the first step. I like the portion idea!

    Ah, temptations! It would be nice to remove them all but
    with little ones in the house, you need to keep some snacks
    around. DAISY is right. Portion out what you can have in
    single serving bags and allow only one. The more you
    restrict a food, the harder it is to control. It is all about
    balance so keep healthy snacks handy. A good habit
    is not to snack after a certain time of the evening, I hope
    you can turn this around. Good luck! HUGS!

    Identifying the problem is the first step in solving it. Good for you for admitting your oops and getting right back on track. That's the way to get this done! Happy Friday--have a great day!

    OK, so you fall off the wagon once in a while and don't we all? When I start having trouble with those pesky chips, I use fold top sandwich bags and put one serving (per the package) in each and put them all back in the big bag. Then, when I want some, I have to make a conscious decision to go back to the kitchen, open the bag again and take out another serving. Of course, I have way too much time on my hands to do these things! Have you thought about changing up your exercise routine, too? emoticon emoticon
