Posting my shameful December calendars...

Saturday, January 04, 2014

Dh seems to have made a hobby of keeping me honest with my healthy living. He busted me out today for having not posted a photo of my December calendars. Top one is not eating at night, bottom one is exercise:

Yes, you are looking at that correctly. Only 2 stickers for the entire month. Unbelievable that I only managed 2 stickers for the entire month. There may have been a day or two in there that I didn't wake up and eat at night, but if so, it was only because I ate enough crap before bed that I wasn't hungry. Didn't think I deserved a sticker for that.

I haven't gotten my January calendars hung yet {gonna do that right after this!}, but other than 2 stickers for the 1st... it's not going any better. I gotta get myself under control and stop being such a hedonist. I think that's my problem -- I want to do what feels good at the moment. And in general, what feels good is sitting on my butt and eating. I don't seem to be doing very well with the concept of delayed gratification. Gotta work on that.

Today hasn't been successful, other than dinner. I made lowfat meatloaf "mud pies", brown rice and green beans for dinner. It was yummy, and I didn't even eat a ton of it. I was pretty impressed with myself. Dh was pretty impressed too, cause that meant he got all his portion and part of mine. He doesn't eat often, but when he eats, he EATS.

I think if we were gonna pick a word of the day, it would be "lazy". I cooked dinner, and took a shower. That's about it. We went to Bath & Body Works this morning so I could buy a pair of fuzzy lamb slippers they had on clearance. Apparently that was taxing, since I found myself curling up for a nap after we got home. Rough life I lead!

I'm gonna get my poo together tomorrow, though. After having to face my December calendars and take pictures of them... well, that was just depressing! I don't want my January calendars to look just like them. That's no good. Unfortunately The Buddy and I are not going to get to walk tomorrow. We're under... yet another... Winter Weather Advisory for tomorrow and tomorrow night. Then windchills as low as -40 on Monday and Tuesday. So I think it's pretty safe to say it won't be outdoor exercising weather for the next few days. I am, however, going to do some kind of exercise inside on Monday.

But back to tomorrow... tomorrow I am going to cook dinner again. HEALTHY dinner. And I'm gonna get some cleaning done around here too. Nothing much, but a little bit of movement is always better than no movement. Also... staying within my calories for tomorrow! I haven't done that in days, and tomorrow will be the day!

For the rest of the night -- printing and hanging my January calendars, football and reading. I'm such a party animal.

Hope everyone is having a nice weekend thus far!

    Don't beat yourself up too much. I didn't do much better, either. But it's a new year, new month, new week, new day. It's never too late to try again. As long as you keep trying, you're winning.

    That was last year!! This is a brand new year!! Remember we are getting into the pool (if I ever find my bathing suit and I am too cheap to go buy a new one if I only have to buy another new after the weight loss-see positive attitude!!!) and swimming that weight off!!


    I am trying to get to the Y on Friday for a guest visit. There is only one other gym near me that has a pool but is too expensive right now since we are helping younger daughter pay her rent plus if I have to slack off due to work commitments I won't have lost a ton of money to the gym.

    We are going to do this (just as soon as I find my bathing suit and I will look again today or buy one!!

    Have a great day!! Stay safe and warm!! It is supposed to be in the 40s here today and tomorrow and then back to the deep freeze!! Yuck!!

    Ok I am going to be judgemental here but I find this a bit silly on you husbands idea(The calenders).I have been struggling with my weight too.It is my business what I have gained or lost and I've been married 26 years.My husband is definitely in support of me.
    Your own journal of positive thoughts is a better idea. It is so hard to diet during the holidays!!!Stop beating yourself up.At least you posted your calendars.A food diary is a much better way and you can write down your feelings too.I coached women on weight loss at a women circuit gym where I worked I had my clients win our biggest loser cash prize 3 years in a row.You are a beautiful woman and I do think your dh cares about you Don't. put them up as they are self defeating! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    HEY at least you did get two stickers LOL!!! That is better than zero and you may have been a bit hard on yourself when you avoided a few. So now that is past look to 2014 especially January, look as you said you already will be placing two stickers on, so you have done as well as last Dec. with four weeks to go. I think that you are a perfectionist not a hedonist and if you mess a bit you call it a wash for the day!!! Just try and take Jan. one day at a time AND please forget about last year, it is a new beginning!!!
