How come....?

Friday, April 26, 2013

How come I am so weak? How come I am so lazy sometimes? I have been weak against my urges for peanut M&Ms... yes. I admit it! I have been eating them and I don't know why. Most of the time when I eat them they taste good, but often I think "why did I eat that?". you would think after all my years and efforts, my brain would come forth and stop me with compulsive eating.

I have at least restarted a fitness regimine. I have restarted my 28-day bootcamp video, Sparkpeople, and I have been trying my Yogalates video. I am also taking ice skating lessons; so I am skating a couple hours a week. I still suck at backwards skating, but i can stop and I am improving on my lemons (except backward lemons...). So at least I am being active!

Since the weather has been a lot nicer lately, I have been spending less time on the computer inside! So that is also an improvement in my habits lately. I have been working on a garden and we will be starting to build the greenhouse soon! I've been so excited with the sprouts coming up and I can't wait to enjoy the veggies I have planted! I am worried since a frost warning is coming in tonight, but things that are in the conservatory seem to be doing well! AND my tomato growbag has more sproutlings than I thought! I was counting two, but found multiple others under the plastic edge! Broccoli plants are growing stronger, and the tomato plants i bought are doing very well inside the conservatory. So, i'm actually very happy and excited to be working on my plants so well and how so many are finally starting to sprout.

So, since I've been more active, especially with gardening activities and taking the ice skating class, I really do need to concentrate more on my food intake. I still make healthy meals, but I'm fairly sure I am not getting enough veggies in, and my sugar intake is way off the charts. I will be doing some serious meal planning with the hubby this weekend for the coming week's meals. (we do this most of the time anyways, as this is our shopping list for the week!)

So here's to a better week, starting tomorrow! And limiting sugar intake as much as I possibly can!

    I am buying them. So it is my own fault. I was pretty good for about 3 days of no M&Ms but I got some yesterday. I just need to get myself into a better habit of not buying these bad things again.

    Maybe you just need to not have the peanut M&M's available for a while. Are you buying them, or are they around from somewhere else? If you are buying them, then stop! If it's someone else, either avoid that place, or ask them to put them away so you don't see them. It's the best way I've found to break those habits that sneak up on you.

    Good luck with your garden! I'm trying to plan one myself, but I'm afraid I'm going to have to do serious battle with the squirrels and rabbits to get any kind of garden growing this year.

    Your eating is getting you down but try this set up your daily calories and include your snacks. Now the hard part, don't eat anymore, or if you do make it fruit.

    It helped me, so good luck
