slipping - help me stop

Sunday, April 13, 2014

I've been creeping up ounce by ounce in weight. I know its emotional eating but I don't care sometimes and don't think other times. So, a new week tomorrow and I'll start again, stay focused and get more exercise than bending my elbow to put food in my mouth.

    I always find that "fessing up" in a blog helps me regain my traction and motivation. Hoping it works for you!

I read on another blog about getting an "accountability partner." They text each other their weight every morning and text throughout the day when a challenging moment arises. I thought it was a great idea.

    It happens. You're doing the right thing restarting. Are you still tracking or keeping track of your food by other means? I found that when I stopped tracking, I gave myself permission to have whatever. It slowed down and I maintained about 5-7 pounds higher than the lowest weight I hit.

What do you do when you find yourself in an emotional state? Instead of going to food what could you be doing? Perhaps you can blog about it more frequently? Do you have someone to call when you're reaching for that thing you want in the kitchen? Can you go for a walk instead of just walking into the kitchen? Can you find a hobby that takes up your hands?

Garden time

Monday, March 31, 2014

The past week my DH got the mulch and fertilizer tilled into my garden and I planted lots of veges - tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, peppers, basil; sort of an italian garden. I'm still learning what will grown in the spot I have for a garden, how to amend the sandy, hard packed soil in Arizona, how much to water and what to feed plants. I'll want to get a "before" pic now and then hopefully in May or June, the "after".

    Awesome! I hope it flourishes and gives you lots of fresh veggies.

  I wish you more luck than I have. Even if I get the seeds to grow, our neighborhood wildlife (bunnies, moles, birds, squirrels) usually eat most of it before we get to it. Still, it looks pretty for a while.

multitasking

Sunday, March 16, 2014

I have a treadmill and a spare laptop so I have the laptop mounted on the treadmill's book rack. They keyboard and mouse are on a kidney shaped piece of plywood across the hand hold bars. Today I installed and started "training" Dragon Naturally Speaking" software so that I can control the computer with voice commands and dictate emails and documents. I may never get off the treadmill!

    Dragon is amazing - and frustrating. I used it extensively when I lost my hard drive and didn't have everything backed up - but did have hard copies of those things. It is a great way to forget that you are exercising too. emoticon

    Very good... you may not "treadmill" fast while multitasking, but any standing / walking movement, even slow movement, counts in terms of fitness! There's research out there supporting that non exercise activity thermogenesis (NEAT) contributes to your wellness. emoticon

back on the treadmill

Monday, March 10, 2014

My back is still a bit painful but I feel well enough to get back on the treadmill and get in some exercises. Truth be told, I'm under a lot of stress lately and I need the exercise to relieve it. Even 15 minutes gives me the ability to deal with things.

My back....again

Thursday, March 06, 2014

I over did it twisting in Yoga yesterday and my degenerating disc in my lower back decided to remind me its still there. Ice and ibuprophen are helping. What's nice is that I don't want to miss Yoga! In the past, I would have taken it as an excuse to quit. I'll have to take it easy but I can still stretch. I missed walking on the treadmill and will get back to it today.

    Ow! Ow! Ow! A perfect example of the pros and cons of exercise emoticon Because of the core strength you've probably developed from yoga, (hopefully!!!) you will heal faster.
