day 3 and feeling good

Monday, November 17, 2014

Breakfast today was Coconut Milk Breakfast Quinoa as found here:
reakfast-quinoa/ Delish! Things are going great as far as "sugar free" goes, though I'd like to increase my veggies (and therefore tip my nutrient to calorie ratio in a better direction). I am exercising.....But just a little. I'm struggling with time and poison in my left foot again. It's likely plantar fasciitis, which I've had off and on for years. It's just much more painful now, and lasts throughout the day. I've been stretching it and taking anti inflammatory meds. It's just really hanging on. But I'm gonna keep pushing through. Just gotta do it.

sugar free meal 1.5

Saturday, November 15, 2014

Very timely that I should (re)discover my spark blog today as a irl friend and I are starting a sugar-free "cleanse" today. In general I do a really good job of cooking nearly every meal from whole-food-scratch. But lately I've been letting too much sugar make its way in. It almost always starts of the same way....with my coffee. Instead of adding unsweetened vanilla almond milk, or even a little plain dairy milk, I'll decide to use some of hubby's French Vanilla Coffeemate - and its always to my detriment. In true snowball-effect-style, one thing leads to another and I'm all of a sudden grabbing a daily latte (or two!) at Dunkin Donuts. Anyway, I added a little plain half n half to my coffee early this morning and had a plum with that. I figured the extra creaminess would help me forget about the lack of sugar to start off with. Then I made some red lentils n veggies for a proper breakfast later.


Blog on mobile? I'm so excited!

Like for real. I'm about to put on some leg warmers and get in touch with my inner-1982-Anita-Pointer. I love love LOVE Sparkpeople. But when you are full time homeschooling soccer mom to half a dozen kids ages 8-21....there's only so much time in the day and sitting in front of my computer is a luxury I rarely experience. So not being able to really *Spark* on my phone has been a huge roadblock in my consistency on here (out more appropriate, lack thereof). Shoot. It's on.


Can one day count as a streak?

Monday, April 28, 2014

I think so. Actually, i was counting the hours. That's sort of the state i have been in as of late. I really had to make good choices for the moment, not looking too far ahead.

I'm too tired to type much now. I just wanted to check in.

Thanks to all who left notes if support and encouragement. They meant the world to me!

I'll try to update meals and type more tomorrow.

G'night, SparkWorld! ! !

Call for support...

Saturday, April 26, 2014

Something's got to give. Seriously.

I guess it has to be me, right?

Ok, so for today, I'm on track. I'm just going to focus on today.... right now, actually.

Right now... I just drank some water.

Right now... I'm making the conscious decision to eat mindfully for the rest of the day.

And right now... I need support.

I've been off track for several months. So many life changes. No excuse, just what it is.

I'd really appreciate it if a few people could check in on me from time to time (on my page, my blog....anywhere). I'm going to really try to log all of my foods and increase my water. Any feedback, comments, encouragement would mean so much to me right now.

Thanks, Sparkworld.

    We all go through this I think! Eating bad is an addiction and it's so hard when life keeps throwing curve balls not to go back to the comfort of bad food. I too have been struggling with this. Just remember it really is a one day at a time, one choice at a time! We each need to find that thing to turn to that helps us deal with the stress of the day. For me it is going to be getting out of the house to go to the gym. So find what works for you and USE it to it's fullest! We are here for you to help provide the support you need. You can feel free to add me as a friend and message me if you need a life line. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    After starting this journey, I realized where I get my motivation and strength. I was so miserable. I turned to food for comfort. Finally I was desperate. I logged on to SP. Here I found the strength to be fearless just for today.
After a few days of eating healthy, I noticed that my body felt physically better. Nothing major just better. After a couple more days I realized that I felt emotionally better, too. I felt so much better and I wanted to feel more of that. Food made me feel better for the moment. The healthy lifestyle made me feel better, more confident, more powerful more in control of my destiny. That feeling is my motivation. You will feel it too.
Stay focused on the present. Make one healthy choice, then another.
If you are tempted bargain for 15 minutes. Durning that time think about how good it would feel to have your life back under your control. If your life was under your control would you feel safer, happier and more comfortable in your own skin? Fifteen minutes will go by quickly. Then ask yourself can I do it for another 15 minutes? You know what to eat and what to avoid. Prepare your favorite healthy meal. Now you have a half a day under your belt. Log on and ask for support to make it through the other half day. Celebrate every healthy choice you make and every effort you make to move more because it wipes out your fears. Be as enthusiastic as you can about your journey. Next week you will feel so much better and then you just keep the streak going. Stop by my page and tell me how you are doing. I can give you all the encouragement you can stand.

    You're not alone! I, too, am struggling to get back on track. You're smart to start with RIGHT now. This minute. Then the next minute, then the next hour, then the next two hours, then the next day. Don't think too far ahead, work on the NOW!
We can do this!
