Day 2

Friday, January 23, 2009

So, I had another rough morning today, and once again I turned to exercise to release my stress. Today, the ice at the rink took a real beating from my skates as I vented my anger with my legs instead of my lips. I then walked for 1 hour, attempted to jog, but my body rebelled, so I pursued top speed walking instead. I felt so much calmer after that, and it really helped me get through the day. I have been in crave mode a lot today, and when I cooked Hamburger Helper for my family, I totally wanted to indulge. I checked my calorie count, and it just wouldn't fit. I asked my husband to please put it away so I could avoid the temptation and went to the store to buy diet pop instead. I totally felt better once I didn't have to look at the temptation and really enjoyed the diet pop. I feel totally pumped about how well I am handling my food choices over these 2 days that I am feeling very emotional and stressed, because usually I would just binge and bury the emotions. I found it very strange that as I was skating, trying to exercise my emotion away, instead of the emotion lessening, it got bigger and bigger before it finally released. When it did finally go, I felt so much lighter. This is a whole new world for me, and it's a place I like to be. Here's to a new,healthy me! emoticon Goodbye to the old habits!

Rough Morning

Thursday, January 22, 2009

emoticonI had an awful start to my day for various reasons, and really needed to nurture myself to get past it. I headed straight for my planned walk with my journey buddy, and walked off my bad day! After our walk, I was energized and uplifted. I am so glad that I have organized my week this way, because the things I need to deal with stress are already built in! No more turning to junk food when my mood is bad.

    You should be SO proud of yourself for turning to a healthy stress reliever like exercise instead of unhealthy comfort food. Hope your day goes better : )

New weigh in schedule

Wednesday, January 21, 2009

emoticonI have been weighing in daily for a long time, and I think it is time for me to release that a bit. So, I am planning for the next two weeks to weigh in here at home on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. I will see how that goes, because this morning it was so hard to resist that scale!

    I am working on reducing my weigh ins to weekly, but I need to work my way there slowly, it's almost an addiction for me.

not so much

Monday, January 19, 2009

emoticonWell, that just didn't pay off yesterday! My day was all messed up from go. Sleeping in sent me into a tailspin. I ate after 8 pm last night for the first time in 3 weeks! We were out past eight, and I was starving! So, instead of being healthy, I ate popcorn with butter, and 8 cookies! Oh, and an apple..... That just didn't make up for it. However, I feel like I decided to do this, and I am right back to my healthy choices today. My weight is down 1.4 pounds this week for my official weigh in, and my goal is to lose 1 pound a week, so it was totally on track! Gonna just keep pluggin away!

    I had that kind of day on Saturday! I didn't work out first thing in the morning and once I started cleaning getting into my Saturday routine, the day just got away from me. When the evening came I baby-sat my 2 nieces with my daughter, all toddlers, and made them snacks. I allowed myself a handful of baked lays chips and before I knew it I had eaten more chips and handful of animal cookies! I felt so guilty afterwards. I seem to get into a different mind frame if I have worked out that day because I know how hard I worked and don't want to put the empty calories right back in my body because I know it isn't worth it. But for some reason that day with no workout and no willpower I had a small, but guilt filled, snack session. Right back on the strict diet Sunday though, with a good workout too. I think sometimes we need those small indulges to keep us sane, as long as we get right back on track. We can't go forever without a cookie now and then!

Sleepy head

Sunday, January 18, 2009


So, I slept in today, and had a very late breakfast at lunch time. I kind of like days like that, because I pretty much just skip an entire meal and it means less calories for the day! We'll see how that bodes for my weigh in tomorrow morning!
