Well, yesterday was a flop! Today's going to be better, though. I am struggling so much with saying "no" and if one thing in my program is off, the whole thing's off. Ex: I didn't sleep well so I slept in late so I missed the gym and didn't meditate so I didn't say no to the candy in the break room so I didn't go to the gym after work, either, so I just ate whatever I wanted all day and didn't drink my water and arggggggggggggghhhhhh I do this and do this and get so sick of it, over and over, round and round we go. Not today! Not today! I have 3 meals and two snacks planned today and the cals are 1,348 and that is within my goal range (1200-1550) and that is that. I'm up and awake, I've listened to something positive this morning, I'm about to read some literature, and this day is going to be fantastic.

our last week of the year- trying to figure out how I am going to put my action plan into motion and not go back to my old ways-so far it hasn't been working.
I did sign up for the 5% winter challenge, I did it last year and I was able to stick to it. I hope is it gives me a good start.

Hope you have a wonderful 2 days with family and friends!

I am an intellingent person. I will control my emotions and not let my emotions control me. Everytime I am tempted to use food to satisfy my frustrated desires, build up my enjured ego or dull my senses, I will remember...even though I overeat in private, my excess poundage is there for all the world to see.
I will take off pounds sensibly!

Thanks ladies, it helps to be reminded that I am important and that I need to take care of myself.

Too many sweets at a pot luck at work today. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.
I was able to get my shopping all done including the groceries for Christmas. This will take a big piece of stress out of my life.

Have a great Thursday!

Candy,
Your recovery is the most important thing in your life and ours. I am so glad there was a compromise where our work lives are not so compromising. I have been learning this myself this week as I have been putting myself almost 3rd in every area of my life and I own two businesses, homeschool my little one and work part time at a retail store. So making the time to do what is really important-YOU...can be a challenge but it must be done. Our HP wants us to live in JOY.

Janine

I met with my sponsor last week and had a great conversation with her, gave me lots to think about. It seems that all my troubles started when I took on a new position at work which added more hours to my work day. This left me losing my time in the mornings were I read my O.A. books and did meditation.
We came up with an Action plan- I will no longer be doing my sparking in the morning but in the evenings so I can go back to my reading and meditation in the mornings. I did it this morning and my day seemed to go better for me.

I will keep trying my best to work my program and waiting for the miracle to happen.

Candy- they say to keep coming back. I'm holding on to the promises. I am with you trying to get the willingness. Don't give up- keep doing what you can and keep coming back.

Jolly- not sure I am jolly these days. That would mean I am carefree. I am just content with my life right now. Disappointed in the way I am letting myself go, turning to food for one reason or another.
I smile and treat others with kindness all the time but I don't treat myself kindly.
Trying to figure out what is it that is holding me down, why I don't want to work the program, to get better, to feel better.
Each day is a new day to be the best I can.

Jolly- to be happy and excited with life around you. This is a desire of mine. I'm working at being more positive and grateful. Not allowing small and big things to comletely bring me down.

Thank you for the Dec post. Thought provoking- I will think on this today.

It's that time of year again where I think all of our stress levels go a little bit haywire! The funny part is that it is TIS THE SEASON TO BE JOLLY! Lol!
We really should look at that little quote. Jolly. What does Jolly mean for you? For me, Jolly means being happy in a state of complete chaos around you. Sitting and enjoying my Christmas tree instead of vacuuming. Wishing a stranger a "Merry Christmas" knowing they may be having a bad day. Jolly is the little things that really mean A LOT.
I used to get really stressful at Christmas time (part due to the excitement of loving Christmas as a kid) for the food that was going to come my way. My family is of French, Italian, Polish and Irish ancestry so there is NO getting a way from food. PERIOD. But....I am not stressful anymore because I know my HP never leaves my side when I need his help.
If you have an overbearing family member that shoves food in your face and you feel like you can't cope because you are emotionally tired....the best response is "My doctor is not allowing me to have this or it will kill me". They will drop that plate of goodies in an instant. It's okay to white lie. We are saving our emotional lives here. We don't have to explain but we do have to be courteous. They do it because they don't know any better. We do it because we are putting ourselves FIRST.
