Problems

Tuesday, August 06, 2013

So today I noticed I had a problem as soon as I got to work...my pants are falling off. These are the same pants that I can remember being too tight. Yay for good problems!

I can't wait until I can no longer wear them and have to shop for new.

Oh nutrition facts how I despise you

Thursday, July 25, 2013

I just don't understand them most of the time. Today I tried to do something good by making whole wheat pancakes and turkey bacon....little did I know that the breakfast was going to be close to 600 calories. I already had a menu of what I was going to eat and this just did not fit in with that plan.

I did learn a valuable lesson...be flexible. Also just because something is whole wheat (no enriched flour so it was true) does not mean you don't have to look closely at the nutrition facts.

On to making better decisions.

    I know I often think I had a really healthy meal, and then realize it was healthy but also lots of calories, but I balance them out the next few days, just relax and do not over do it.

    I have lost 109 pounds and nothing is off limits. However moderation and tracking rule. Next time you might want to have smaller pancakes. They freeze well after they are cooked and can be popped into the toaster another time.

Its True

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

So I started a down spiral after I got home from my vacation. They say you should be less stressed after a vacation...but too many things were waiting for me when I got home to enjoy just coming home. I am taking the stress challenge and nothing prepared me for what was to come. I tried counting, deep breathing, a bath. I just sat there...I didn't overeat...but I also did not move. After skipping 2 days of exercise I felt the rut coming. I felt depressed and decided to come here on Monday. I had already decided not to run, but after 5 minutes on here I got up and ran and started tracking my foods. I did gain 2 pounds while on vacation but when you are staying at family/in-laws houses you don't have much to choose from when it comes to food. I am back in the groove.

I came close today to falling back off though...it was an exciting time. I signed the papers for my new job and I start in 2 weeks. But my husband and mom did not celebrate with me, which kind of bummed me out. I decided though that I am in charge of how I react and not how they react. No excuses... get off the couch and grab your goals!

Progress

Thursday, June 27, 2013

Last night my husband and I went to meet a friend for dinner. We looked at the menu before we left and found something that we would like to share. A lot of people at the table were healthy food people so I was definitely afraid of being judged. I am so glad that my husband and I shared. It would have been way too much for me to eat by myself and the old me would have eaten everything on the plate. I did indulge and have 1 bite of my friends cheesecake but I did not order anything for myself.

This mental attitude that I have towards food really shows the progress that I have made. My friend squeezed me and told me how good I look even though I haven't lost a pound. My clothes look and feel different on me. I have a pep in my step, so to speak. I have more energy than I know what to with. My personality is more excited and happy. I am under a lot of stress right now but I am handling it so much better!

I love who I am becoming, I feel so much better about myself. If only I could be more confident about meeting new people. I still get scared of judgement and have social anxiety...that is my next goal to squash with becoming a healthier version of me!

I have not lost a pound yet but I am gaining so much that I am not minding too much.

Thank you for reading!

To Stress or Not to Stress, That is the Question

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

Today I got SUPER stressed out so I tried a stress reduction technique that I have been learning...I got on the elliptical and began to sweat it out! The problem did not go away, but I felt so much better than I did before. I am so glad that I am learning how to focus the stress in a much better way. I used to go to the kitchen every time I felt bad. My husband even said, I know you are stressing do you want something from the kitchen? I told him I am not going to eat when I am emotional, because that gives food power over me. I am so glad I made the decision I did!

    food can at least temporary destress or relax us, but there are often other ways od doing that. i enjoy a good workout to deal with the stess. it does not fix the issue but i feel better when done.
