How do you all reset?

Thursday, June 27, 2013

So here is how my day goes from time to time- I wake up and do great- Then lunch happens and I mess up- or I choose to eat something that I know is going to be no help to my goal of being 150 before I die ;) ........ then I am like- OH THE HELL WITH IT I will just start over tomorrow! Now, that makes me crazy b/c I know that I just need to refocus- How do you all do that- help :)

    We all have ups and downs in our journey to healthy.
    I read an article that said when you are truly ready to lose the weight, you will make a habit and stick to it. I also ready that if you do too much too fast, then you burn yourself out and that's why you don't keep up with your good habits. It's best to change little things, one thing at a time. It takes 12 weeks to make something a habit on average.

    It is hard, but I try to remember that its more about my calories for the week/month. So if I blew it on lunch then I can't keep eating too much because I'll be in a deficit for tomorrow. Having said that, it doesn't always work, but it does sometimes.

    How did I miss that you were back on Spark? It must have been during my mini-break. It's good to see you around, again. Anyway...

    First thing is that I eat pretty much constantly. I don't ever really allow myself to get hungry because that's when I'm more likely to say f* it and eat whatever tickles my fancy. Also, I don't know what your problem foods are, but I have issues with sweet stuff. So, I make sure to work sweet things into my day. Some of my go-to sweets include flavored almonds, Peanut Butter & Co. peanut butter, hot tea with cream and Splenda, fruit (especially apples), and Fiber One bars. Then, you just have to make the committment to take it one meal at a time. Every time you eat, make the effort to consciously decide what you are going to eat. Own your choice...no matter what it is. Take back your power and let go of the guilt that you are feeling, because it only makes it harder.
