ok so yes its been a while since I posted or even came to this site!!! ugg real life tried lol to win out but the scale shows that I can face anything that comes my way and still use my new lifestyle food choices... exercise until today was out of the question due to a wreck I was in during the month of Feb... now I am back and excited to rock this site and absorb as much info as I can ever learning more about nutrition and recpies and all the other info sparks has to offer!!! It's working I have 22 lbs off wahooo;... and my sons are so proud of me...They took me hiking today OMG was so beautiful yet so aerobic!! lol gonna take same path for a couple weeks at garden of the gods and monitor my endurance level before moving onto another path which is more challenging... It was awesome though to be out there with Tuck and Tan and be able to go so far... They now know that I'm serious this time and doing it...getting healthier day by day.

sons are watching me and waiting for this "diet" to fail same as all the other ones I tried... laughs they can keep waiting all they want cause this isn't a diet this time... I can eat anything I want when ever I want.... I know this now .... the choices I make affect me and only me.... so as I have an urge for say olive garden pasta I ask myself...will that be good for my body ??? are those calories worth the short lived pleasure of taste??? can I make a close likeness of that food myself using healthy ingredients??? am I really hungry right now??? how much money can I save if I don't eat out??? I have learned to grap my water and drink some when I get the urge to possibly make unhealthy food choices and all of these work ..... my urges are not as frequent as they where begining of Jan....

again this is my life and I'm living it for the first time ever for me and me thanks myself as I get healhier ever day!!!!!! I have more endurance than just meer weeks ago... I sleep better and I feel better.... and I'm happier so much happier.... this is going to be an amazing year!!!

I was having a very good night at work until the last 25 minutes of work then it was like the domino effect and stress levels exploded upward and beyond... hardest part was I'm a major stress eater and stress eatting lowers my stress quickly so I had a choice... let all the hard work I have done since the first of the year go and eat every form of chocolate of chips I could get my hands on or not..... It was hard and I so need to learn some way to deal with stress, cause my pulse increased I know my b/p increased and all who saw me knew something wasnt right with me that I was ....mad and trying to maintain calm .... but HUGE pats on the back to myself c ause I didnt eat chocolate or chips nor did I head straight to the store for donuts or cartons of icecream.... so goal for the next month is find other strategies for dealing with stress other than something that goes in my mouth.... but for today I win not an easy victory but a victory ......

Today was awesome!!!! I'm laughing at myself cause a few short weeks ago I so wouldnt discribe today as awesome. LOL... Went to the gym and kicked it up a notch for a last minute workout due to the weigh in at work tommorrow for the 3 month weight loss challenge they are having and that I signed up to do... Blasted my mile walk down to 22 miinutes oh yeah lol .... did well on the weight machines it goes faster now that I know what I'm doing...
then headed to the pool for laps which I'm faster at now and stronger with too... then I did it yes I did.... I stayed and took the hour long aerobics with weights!!!! OUCHHHHHHHH but I did it and yes it pushed me and yes I was drained but it just felt so kewl that I did it lol...and I slept like a log that was awesome too instead of waking up every hour or so and twisting and turning to get back to sleep... Am excited to weigh in tommorrow and for once in my many years of use to be attempts to loose weight I know that this time I will be ok with whatever that scale reads and that I will stay the course that I am on towards a healthy lifestyle... Cause what I'm feeling now feels so good...

hugs myself

wahooo started the January challenge and had to work hard to do a mile on the treadmill at 26 minutes... lol wow seems like a long time ago was sweating and panting and no way could I have spoken full sentences to anyone... now three weeks later I pushed it at the gym today and did a mile in 23 minutes still sweating but able to talk a bit lol but was able to still keep going. So amazing to me to see what I call improvement that soon!! Felt good too...

Ok so I so want to take the water aerobic class at the club BUT ... don't want no one to see me if I cant make it to the end of it... and if I just swim laps when its slow in the pool it's not bad.. yeah having an image thing on this for sure... think I'll wait a bit longer loose a little more before I do this... cause I know if someone makes a comment it could send me back to my old habits and I'm doing so good...

Food wise I'm learning better how to get all my fats and proteins in there... the water is the easiest although I still wake up to visit the little girls room then have trouble getting back to sleep. Hoping that will even out in time though...

Been a pretty good week...

Congrats!! How I hate it when something doesn't your way and you end up craving something bad for you. The worst part if feeling so much worse afterwards. But Kapri took the high road and is now tougher than the Kapri of yesterday. You are stronger than you give yourself credit for, and you are proving to yourself what you are really made of. I am also proud of you. Not snacking in that scenario is tough, I know because I struggle with binging too. Continue overcoming these obstacles, results are around the corner. You can do it.

how important is 1 minute and 14 seconds??

so ok Kapri how was your day????~~~!!!!!! almost blew it... almost lost it... almost tossed my new healthy habits away... over what????? something stupid "again" as how many times in the past ? numerous times.... I stressed over something I couldnt figure out and it was hard to not just go eat any and everything I could or hit the store for donuts or icecream or oreos all my old friends where calling hard to me.... tucker and tanner noticed "my face and my mood" from how many "diet attempts in the past" and this was all it took to have me give up so as usual they stayed quiet and out of my way.... I paced and "possibly cussed" lol ok I cussed a tad, paced some more and finally said screw it... noticing my sons look at each other as I turned and went upstairs....I shut my door.... took a deep slow breath and said :
~ girl come on you can do this
~ I can be strong ~
~ I deserve to be healthy and thinner
~ I am in control of me
~ no empty nutrition food is going to solve this problem or help it
So no I'm not going to stress eat my way out of this I'm going to find something positive to do and take control of my current stress level and work through this without turning to food or self sabatage.... I went to my closet and looked at the assortment I have started to collect of new outfits to wear in smaller incerments as I loose my extra weight... I started to smile and calm down.... Yeah!!!! I did it!!!! OMG I didn't cheat for the FIRST time ever in how many years lol....

I am worth it...I went back down stairs and looked at tuck and tan said .... well I'm a tad frustrated with a computer issue will one of you p lease try to help me with it and I was smiling and totally calm .... they both first looked at each other like ok who is this person lol then stood up came to me and hugged me saying wow mom you did it you didnt head to the store to binge and said how proud of me they where and lol then one of them took 1 minute and 14 seconds total to solve the little issue on my computer that had me so stressed to start with.....to think that is all the longer of an issue it was that could of and had in the past sent me back to the old me .....lesson learned

hugs myself and says
I did it, I am worth this!!!!

thanks for the support all

Mary ~ I can so relate to nibbling too much while cooking, I now try to have one of my sons nibble something if needed to check for the amt of spices to add as I know I will nibble too much... and I also am my worst sabatore or correction use to be this is one habit I'm working hard on breaking...

Siroibara ~ my little joseph is 7 weeks old... note taken though to take him shopping so he can help cook at home and learn healthy eatting... as his parents do eat too much take out food... good idea on leaving fruit on the counter I have to keeping thinking oh yeah add fruit and veggies to my meal still , it is getting a tad easier though...

hugs
Kapri

Congrats on the 6lb weight loss Kapria! I don't know how old Joseph is, but when he's old enough you can take him to the market and let him choose fruits and veggies from the produce aisle and see what adventure you both will cook later in the kitchen. That's how I introduced greens to my godson, his parents don't reinforce the greens as much (tight budget so it's mostly McDs). I struggle with fruits so what I'm doing is leaving them out in the kitchen so I can grab them when needing a snack or on my way out. I used to leave them in the fridge and always had to throw them away when expired. There are some delicious salmon recipes over at SparkRecipes. Thank you for sharing your journey in the land of Oz with us, and congrats on your achievements thus far. Keep it up!

CONGRATULATIONS ON THE LOSS AND THE NEW GRAND! I just love my three little ones!
When I think of the saboteur it reminds me of how aware we have suddenly become. Have these people done this all along and I never noticed. The reason I noticed it was because just shortly after I started watching what I ate I caught myself mindlessly nibbling while I was cooking. Then I did it again while visiting with my girlfriend. Once I noticed it I couldn't believe how I had just sabotaged myself! I have to CONSTANTLY be on guard even from myself. I guess we are learning a better behavior.
Way to go!

ok so it's been a LONG week. lol but I made it. Down 6 lbs wahoooooo.... let me tell you people sure tried to make me slip... I was offered more "unhealthy" food this week than any other week before... It's amazing how people can be so unsupportive... I'm so glad I have come to realize this and not let them take control of my choice to make positive healthy changes to me and my life this year... It was so exhilerating to see that number on the scale this morning... yes I struggled so many times this week... people gave me candy bars, chips,
plates of pizza, egg rolls, and homemade cookies... all of which I handed back or tossed in the trash saying either, no thank you this isn't on my food plan for the day or walk away from mem please your a sabator... I do believe the more I said no the more they thought it would be fun to trip me up... It has taken me so many years to come to the realization that I am in control of me...
My self reward for this hard week was the number on the scale wahooo.... I do owe much thanks to sparkpeople for being there for me each and every day... staying accountable to the food tracker, fitness tracker and the january jumpstart challenge, the articles and knowledge have been my lifeboat.
And totally kewl is that 2 of my friends have joined sparks for their own journies to be healthy!!!

I can and am doing this

This is my year!! I have tried every diet out there and invented many of my own to no good of course always gaining the wieght back each time and each time those lost pounds came back they brought more friends(pounds) with them... so dieting has only ever made me larger!!! I can't get any bigger...
I have a new grandchild my first, my precious Joseph. I so want to share in all his milestones and need to work on getting me healthy and in shape to do so... I'm making me my focus for the new year... I have learned how to so "no" for the first time ever probably lol... No I can't take you here or there I have to do my exercises or read my articles. as an example... I have raised my kids and even though 2 still live at home they have been told I'm not the taxi runner, laundry lady, errand woman, etc for them any longer...new saying in my house when they ask me for things or to do something is " what would bob say?" lol I am a huge fan of bob from biggest looser!!! recieved all his videos for xmas wahooo thanks Santa...

So me this is our year and here are some short term goals and a long term goal to get us started right.

short term goals for month of January
1) actually eat the fresh fruit and fresh veggies I buy for my family... currently I lie to myself saying if I eat it there wont be any for them .

2) I really need to learn to drink water and or green tea, not just live on soda and drive through smoothies.

3) add fish to my and my families meals at least 3 to 5 times a week.... told family they can either eat it or make their own food... they are old enough

Long term goal for 2012
I want to look.. actuallly look at myself in the mirror every day and start each day positive with I can do this for me... I am worth making healthy life style changes .... and tell myself that today is my day .... I will make the choices I make for me today not for others... I will tell those that in the past and current time frame have joked and sabataged my "dieting efforts" "exercise choices" etc that they are sabators and to please turn and go away from me... and if they wont I will turn and go away from them and not let my feelings of each incounter to change those positivce steps of eatting and exercise I have planned for the day...

I can do this!
Kapri
