A new day and a new year

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

Well I didn't do to well over the holidays but this is a new year right? Now that my son and husband are back to work and life is getting back to normal I am ready to begin as well. I have a big goal this year well at least the first half. We are taking a family vacation to the bahamas in July so I really want to be down to 170. I know thing is a hard challenge but I am going to try my hardest to meet it. so here it goes.

    I'm not sure too many did do well over the holidays, but today is another day. The vacation to the Bahamas sounds wonderful right now! Hope you and your family find many blessings in the New Year! emoticon

well so much for back on track

Saturday, December 29, 2012

I guess i just have to try hang in there till after the new year. I just weighed myself and gained 7 pounds. how can one do that in just a week? I really didn't think I ate that much or that bad. It has really gotten me down. And then there is our new years party. I quit. I wanted so bad to not gain that much. It is sad for me but I do know that i have to get back at it. Just not sure when that will happen.

    If you haven't eaten that poorly, I'm inclined to guess that is largely water weight. If you can get yourself right back on track after the holidays are over, I think you'll be successful in losing that quickly. Blessings to you!

    I overate more than I though between thanksgiving and chrismas. Right now I am sick with flu so I am not getting the exercise I need...once back healthy I will recommit to the exercise program.

I agree with the others....cut yourself a large break, recommit and start fresh.
Good Luck!!!

    Although I overate this week, I know I didn't overeat 17,500 calories to gain 5 pounds of fat. I tracked everything, so I know this is true. That being said, I know the weight gain I see is water weight (ham on Christmas and since then for leftovers). I lost 1 lb overnight even though I didn't have a calorie deficit of 3500 calories. I wouldn't be so hard on myself. Just for today, do one positive thing to move you in the right direction. Drink 8 cups of water (preferably more) or walk for 10 minutes. You'll feel better with every baby step you take. Don't wait until after the New Year. Start today! emoticon emoticon

    It is, of course, THE worst week for dieting/behaving. Make small changes and remember nothing happens in a day. Hit the vegetable tray and start again Jan. 2nd.

  I think you might be being a little hard on yourself. Weight is a relative term. Some of the weight we gain quickly can quickly come off too (like water). I know how you feel with the weight gain. I have also put on pounds for the holidays. Just keep looking forward and not back. You can't change the past, but you can change the future and today is a new day!!! emoticon

Back on track

Thursday, December 27, 2012

Well Christmas is over and I hope everyone had a wonderful time this year. Mine was filled with the 3 f's Fun family and food. Although I tried to be really good this Christmas I blew it yesterday. But you know I am not beating myself up over it. It happened and now I move on. I had a great day and enjoyed my family. I do feel yucky today which is a good sign to me. It is telling me I ate to much and to much of the wrong stuff.

Today I will be better because I don't like this feeling. I am starting out well. I got on spark people today. We will go from there. Have a great day.

    A few too many cookies, giradelli's caramel chocolates, keebler fudge stripes & red velvet cupcakes....I need to be on that dreadmill for the next 3weeks NONSTOP!

God bless & no regrets!

A new goal

Wednesday, December 19, 2012

Today in my sparkcoach lesson they challenged me to evaluate how I was really doing and to see what I really needed to change. I have gotten lazy with my measuring and tracking. I do track most of my food but this morning when I was making my husband's lunch I realized I take a scoop(about 1 tablespoon) of peanut butter every morning. I never put that in my tracking. So how much other stuff do I eat a little here and a little there and not track it. It all adds up. The other thing I have stopped doing is measuring my foods. i have been eyeballing it which I am sure I eat more than I should. Then i wonder why I can't lose this weight.

I was doing this with exercise but have stopped counting every little thing and now I am tracking only cardio and strength training stuff.

So my new goal will be to measure and track better. I know this will be hard with Christmas and New Years but I have to start somewhere and sometime. It might as well be now.

I hope everyone is doing great. We can do this.

    Great blog and just what I needed to get on track today--have fallen off the tracking wagon for food (exercise I do okay). Thanks for the reminder!

    You are so right! Those little things really do add up. Great job monitoring yourself and making adjustments as you see needed.

    Oh man boy did you hit it on the head for me and I realized we are creatures of habit and so easily we teach ourselves something new and then fall back into those old habits. I caught myself yesterday doing the very same thing. Thank you for sharing and pointing it out we are not alone.

    Good insight into your behavior. Thanks for sharing it.I'm in the SparkCoach Plateau Busting Program and am reminded daily on my checklist to accurately measure and track all food and exercise. I've already tracked Christmas and, if I stick to my plan, will stay in calorie and nutrient ranges. Good for you with starting NOW. Don't put it off. You'd be cheating no one but yourself!
