Can't Get Motivated!!!

Sunday, June 23, 2013

I keep telling myself that I am gonna stick to this diet. I promised myself and my hubby that I would lose 20 or more pounds by my birthday. I know I can do it but I keep sinking back into my bad habits and watch my weight keep going up. I turn 40 this September and really need to get myself healthy and happy so I can be around for my kids and husband. I know I still have the time to lose the weight I promised myself but just getting it started and sticking to it. I know I eat when I am bored or have nothing else to do. I try to keep myself busy at home and work so I don't eat and keep fruit instead of candy. I guess that is a start. Gonna have to keep my wallet at home so I am not tempted to whip out that debit card and buy fast food. I don't keep cash on me just for the reason I go to fast food for lunch and not buying the salads or lower calorie options. I stayed on my calorie limit today so that is one step forward and hopefully keep stepping closer and closer to my goal.

10 Reasons You Eat When You're Not Actually Hungry | SparkPeople
If people only ate when they felt true hunger, few of us would struggle with our weight. So why (and where) are we eating so much, and what can we do about it ?

Haven't had a good weekend. Eating wise I have done pretty good. The bad part was putting up with my daughter's disrespectful attitude towards me. If I talked to my mother the way she talks to me just say it would be worse than the punishment she usually gets. Momma is at her wits end and sometimes I feel like calling her dad and telling him to come and get her because I am done. This doesn't help with my weight loss journey but this weekend I have done better with not using food for comfort like before. emoticon

Another week is starting. The kids have 3 days of school and then out for 2 days. Sending them to their grandparents for those 2 days and then they go to their dad's for weekend. If her attitude doesn't change and she doesn't do as she was told then they don't get to go to grandparents. My eating is gonna get better and the weight is gonna come off. Gonna get the walking into my daily routine if it kills me. Gonna try to do some at lunchtime at work but might not be able to this week. Yearly audit this week so boss will be there most of the week so most likely to busy at work but home time I will get it in.

So here's to another week and some more progress!!! emoticon

Wednesday Hump Day

Wednesday, October 17, 2012

Made it through the day. Did pretty good with the diet and went out and walked for awhile. It was so nice outside today.

Was helping my daughter with her science fair project. It was about how much gas is in your favorite beverage. We used Milk, Tea, Juice and Diet Coke. Let's just say the only one that almost immediately showed gas production was diet coke. I really need to get off of drinking diet coke but not easy to do.

My kids are home with us this weekend. It is suppose to be nice so told them we would pack up the bikes and go to the park and go riding. Good for all of us. Enjoy the last of the good weather. I hope the weather forecast stays nice for the weekend.

Well, have a good rest of the week. emoticon


First day of a new week

Monday, October 15, 2012

Well, finally Monday is over. Kids are home and settled in from their dad's. Got a call from my daughter's school. Somehow she bent the nail on her middle finger completely back. Nurse said she was fine but was pretty white when she came in. Had to cut it clear back just to get the bend out of the nail - poor thing. She is a klutz this year of school.

My eating went pretty well today. Weather wasn't right to go walking outside today and my hubby has my treadmill blocked. So looks like tomorrow I am cleaning up so I can use my indoor equipment when weather is bad.

Got some fruit for snacks for the kids and no lunch cakes. We got some of the 100 calorie snacks for their lunch for school. They are not happy but they will get use to it. It is a start! emoticon

3rd Blog

Saturday, October 13, 2012

Well missed blogging yesterday. Busy day but making up today by adding today and yesterday food tracking. I splurged today and finally got to have my birthday lunch at Outback with the hubby. So calories were way out there. Will get back on track tomorrow.

Took daughter to doctor yesterday. Her BMI is right at the line between normal and overweight. She is 12. Told her that we were all going to start eating healthier. No more eating out, which we don't much anyways. Cutting down on lunch cakes that they all get. More fruit for snacks, whether kids like it or not. Everything healthy is so expensive but gotta do it.

Well, will be back on here tomorrow with a much better calorie count.
