Lieing to myself

Monday, January 14, 2013

I go thru these periods where I start lieing to myself about portion sizes and I get into trouble this way. Hey what is 3 samples of bread at work not logged? What is 3/4th of a cup of apple sauce instead of a half a cup. Or a logging xsmall banana when really it's a medium sized banana. Well I can lie to myself all I want but the scale will laugh at me for it. I am still holding on to my christmas weight. It's only 3-4 lbs up but it's still frustrating and my belt wont fasten as tightly as I like. I have still been dancing a lot lately, hitting my dance class instead of running. This guy in the dance classes friended me on facebook. UGHHH why do ppl think just cuz you see them somewhere, you are friends? He was kinda rude to me awhile back about my running times I told him about for a half marathon. He told me he would have gotten the same times untrained. I am not even sure he knew how $hitty that was to say. Nonetheless avoiding eye contact in class. Bugger off, we got nothing in common, nothing. Facebook can be personal. I don't add everyone I know. I add ppl I am close to. 1200 friends is not my goal. Nor is getting close to 60 yr old retired men, besides my dad.

I got chocolate wine the other night. That stuff is funny, why don't they just say White Russian on the bottle? 256 calories for 3.5 oz. Only thing related to wine about it is the serving size....mmmhmmm. And I wonder why my weight is up.

I am so happy gympact finally made it's way to Andrioid. This weekend I finally synched my gympact to runkeeper, so now my runs count as gym workouts. I got a few buddies on gympact as well, yay!

    I do the same thing with tracking...there are times where I think I overestimate things, but I'm probably actually on target with those days...

    I feel you on the calories. I try to keep a bit of distance from my maximum amount of calories just in case I might have been too generous at some point in the day (like that ONE fry I took from my hubby's plate at Ruby Tuesdays last night). Haha!

    I think I cheat at least 80% of the time when it comes to portion sizes in that I "guesstimate" what looks like 1/2 a cup, or an ounce of meat, etc. But the truth is, I don't think I would be able to do this if I measured every single thing. What I try to do is overestimate, instead. So if it looks like 3/4 of a cup to me, I log it as 1 cup. Not always, of course, otherwise I'd be at my goal weight, lol!

    Haha I do the same thing about logging. I'll not log a few pieces of apple b/c I feel like it's not that big of a deal. It's a big deal with it adds up over a week. At least you are catching yourself and correcting it.
    I feel the same way about facebook. I need to clean my friends out b/c it's people I never see and don't care to see.
    What a creep! I'd just stay away or ignore him for sure.
    Hang in there girl! Those few extra pounds will come off.
    Have a great day!

    You may be surprised that I do not have many facebook friends basically family and a few friends. I actually share more on SP.

    I have to be really strict with myself with measuring too. One cookie not tracked can easily lead to five. I'll even log unsweetened tea- and it's zero calories. FB drives me crazy sometimes. I get lots of friend requests from old associates who no longer work for our company- awkward feeling being that I'm the one that let them go. Yeah- FB can stay for actual fiends- thanks! ;)

    As long as you realize that you're lying to yourself, you're going in the right direction. It's the people who don't realize it that have a problem!

    Sorry about the creeper! Good for you for not adding him! I hate when people you don't know add you. Ugh. Awkward when you see them.

    You can do it girl! I go through the same phase of over-guessing or tracking wrong lol. One handful of skittles, another handful of skittles, blahblah. UGHHH! We can do this though!!

    Holy crap I just tried chocolate wine last month! WOW that stuff is amazing. I didn't know it was that high though, so thanks for telling me, now I won't have any more of it!!! Hang in there on the weight. You're doing the right stuff and it'll come in line. :)

    Creepy about the guy. What a jerk, too. :/

    I've never understood why people would want to add friends on facebook that they don't know. Of course I don't really like facebook and it just seems like a bunch of people wanting to play games and have you help them get things they need to play the games. People posting witty saying and pictures with witty sayings. Seems like a waste of time to me.

    Sounds like the guy has a thing for you. I would not trust him.

    I'm a constant cheater and I have to weigh my food every day. After a while you would think I could tell a serving but nooooooooooooooo, I can't. I'm not sure if I'm that dumb or just that much in denial.
