No self control!!

Tuesday, July 02, 2013

Seriously, I am having serious issues with my self control lately. I don't have very many junk food items in my house, but, man when I do get my hands on the ones I do have, I go crazy! Example, there was a big bag of cooler ranch doritos for $1! I decided to buy them for my husband.
I think I ended up eating more than he did! I just didn't stop! emoticon

I am in serious need of a kick in the butt! We are going through a horrible heatwave right now. All weekend it was over 110 out. Saturday it was still 104 at 7pm! It's cooled to the high 90s since yesterday though. To get to the point... exercising sounds evil. I am so hot! Im so scared to look at the electric bill next month. I don't think our A/C went off over the weekend. That was just to keep our house in the mid 80s. I think at some points it was 89-90 in our house with it on. I hate even thinking about it. Anyway, its cooling off and I need to get it together with my eating. No more junk food! I need to form a contract with myself. I need to start exercising again! I can't keep talking myself out of everything and into eating anything! The scale is starting to go up again. I hate seeing it. I just don't even know if I can trust it though. My clothes fit the same. So I am trying not to let the scale get me down.

Well, Im done rambling. Im really gonna pray about my self control. Wish me luck... I can do this!!!

    Yes I have a moment when I have a "snack" food ... Just get back on the saddle again. My sister lives in Vegas 117 there, I've talked to her and feel for you, I hope you have lots of ice. emoticon

    Will pray for you as well. God can help you with self control. Have you heard of the book Made to Crave? It's about our relationship with food. I got a free devotional e-book. Check out the book if you can. emoticon

    I know what you mean....heat is NOT conducive to exercising! And it is SO tempting to have chips or other things that you can snack on in the house. I avoid buying them. That helps. And if they are around, try portioning out a serving size in little bags.

    Try some mat/floor exercise (pilates/yoga/core work) that doesn't make you too hot/sweaty. Or pool if you can visit one. emoticon

    Stay cool, my friend. Or at least try! Hope you are staying hydrated, drinking lots of water. emoticon

    Have a happy 4th of July! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Yes, it is constant temptation.... we all know what to do- the trick is doing it. We can do this, one step at a time. emoticon emoticon
    Let's have a better week!
    Happy July 4th to you! emoticon

    I soooo understand! I normally don’t have any junk in the home and do really well because of it BUT this past hot weekend I bought some ice cream to share with my family. I did well on Saturday because I only ate a 1 cup serving. However, Sunday I dug into the ice cream again and ate waaay too much in addition to lots of snacking on other things. I ended up way over my daily goal for calories. What I’ve decided is that I can’t trust myself with that kind of junk in the home. If I want to buy treats for the family, I need to make smarter choices. It’s better for them and better for me. I should have bought sorbet instead of ice cream or perhaps made Jell-O with some chilled berries or anything else that is cool/cold but would cause minimal or no damage to my diet and would encourage my family to make good food choices. Well, hang in there, sweetie. You’ll get yourself back on track. You’ve come so far and made so much progress. I believe in you!

    :( I hate it when I feel like everything is just falling apart for no reason except that I am apparently a lazy, worthless person!! (this happens at least once a week at my house.) I've yet to find a cure for it, but somehow I can always turn it around eventually. Hugs!
