Time off work !

Monday, May 13, 2013

I am between seasons now , and have a little time at home . I am trying to f ind a way to get myself organized ! I tend to be a little ... well more then a little distracted , I think I have Add also panic attacks ! Yikes not a good combo . Using a timer is really helpful for me and also I used a program called Hott Notes to leave little post it notes on my computer , Exercise , spark , clean house , organize bills and so on .
I am also trying to be more thankful for the food I eat ! I remember my father , who was a chef , to THINK about the food ! " Look at this beautiful orange , its grown in the sun , in a beautiful orchard , taste the sunshine" Also lighting a candle , using pretty plates and not eating anything I don't truly love ! and um also trying not to stuff my face without paying attention..... I swear there was a sandwich on that plate ! emoticon Did I eat that already ! emoticon

Purple hair and a scale that is Wacky !

Friday, May 03, 2013

I thought I would reward myself.... change my hair color bought a box of Loreal Cherry Cordial Chocolate hair dye , I thought if I couldnt eat chocolate I could at least wear it on my head ! Now I look like Barney and the scale is going up and down . I keep weighing less with my clothes on then when I take them off and neither number is good even though I have been tracking and exercising like crazy ! Help !!!!! emoticon

    Hey, I pay good money to get my hair colored purple at the salon every month. Stay away from the scale for a few weeks and measure your waist instead. Wishing you relief.

    That's why I am afraid to color my own hair. Always afraid it will come out purple or orange

    Are you moving your scale? Mine weighs differently if it isn't sitting completely level on the tile. Also, I think checking the batteries is a good idea. My weight can fluctuate by five pounds depending on how salty my meal plans have been. I would love to see your hair - I've done that too! Mine came out to a lovely shade of burgundy.

    Oh Kyliecat1, I wish that I had some answers, but it sounds like it's Freaky Friday where you are. Your post made me smile on a day when I needed it - thank you!

And good luck sorting the other problems out. Does the scale need a new battery, or do you need a new scale? Can you call L'Oreal and talk to their hotline about what to do?

It has been that kind of weight-loss week for me, too. Just hang in there and make sure that you're doing the right things (get sleep, drink water, eat at least the minimum number of calories, and exercise). The weight WILL come off! Good luck!

    Welcome to Sp. There are so many things it could be. Sadly as women hormones and salt affect is the most. I'd say take a look at your diet - too much sodium? not enough protein or fresh veggies/fruits? What about the timing of your nutrients? too many carbs?

Lots of things, I'd say pick one area to work on, give it 6 weeks then re-evaluate and change something else. By giving a change 6 weeks it can be come a habit it if it leads to success.

Also the scale isn't the only means of measure. What about the tape measure or none scale victories (NSV) like clothese fitting more loosely, compliments, wearing something you've not worn in a while, more energy, etc.

Good luck and keep pushing!!!

    Hey! Your scale definitely sounds like it is wacky, so don't put too much stock in the number you see on it. I would say to use a measuring tape and track inches instead. Or get a better scale and then only weigh in once a week, or weigh everyday but only track it once a week. That way the daily fluctuations that everyone experiences won't frustrate you and make you want to give up.

What my weight loss is and isn't for me .

Saturday, April 27, 2013

Why did I start this weight loss journey ..six reasons why .
1 . To make make myself proud of accomplishing a goal
2. To use it as a stepping stone to accomplish other goals in my life
3. To change myself in a more positive way.
4. To have my son see me at a healthy weight and be a good roll model
5. To feel "Normal" again
6. To be healthy

Why I didnt start this weight loss journey .
1 I didnt start this journey to make people love me more.
I should be loved for who I am .
2. I didnt start this journey to show off .
Comments from people like" What are you going to do when you get to goal weear a bikini ?
3. I didnt start this goal to become someone I am not ,
My personality is fine just the way it is.
4. I didnt stat this goal to fail.
I will make it , I might go around it and up one side and down the other and backwards but I will make my goal !
5. I didnt start this goal so I could find other faults to look at once my weight is gone .
6. I didnt start this goal to feel guilty for finally taking care of myself or feeling guilty about my new found confidence .

Stressful week coming up !

Saturday, April 13, 2013

What a week ! Taxes due , A meeting I really don't want to go to but have to , My birthday ! YUCK ! and it seems like every annoying person I know is coming out of the woodwork lately! Not to mention two very busy weeks at work coming , I can feel the weight gain now ! Lack of sleep. Lack of time . Thinking to much . Looking for an easy way to comfort myself .. Oh I can see it coming ! This really scares me , the thought of all my hard work going up in smoke ! Two weeks perhaps longer of stress ! I could gain ten pounds by then ! emoticon I had a talk with myself , I had joined a really committed challenge at Spark but then ... I unjoined.. Now is not the time for this , It will just set me up to call myself a failure ! So I am taking it back a notch or maybe 2 or 3 notches . Baby steps and maintaining some form of self control ! Okay think in tiny boxes ....* they say men think this way , lol . I tend to believe that , they seem much better at compartmentalizing . First Exercise each day even for ten minutes , * it often leads to more. * Drink my water , Take my vitamins , Visualize and meditate , Journal food .Get sleep . Give myself a lot of love this week ! If anyone else is also feeling this way please take good care of yourself ! Stress is bad enough when it comes from without but worse when it comes from within ! We can do it !

    Sounds like you have a plan. Good luck and don't let the stress take too much out of you. What I do (and you can ignore this if you want) is when the stress happens I take a step back, take 5 or 10 minutes and walk it off. Think about something positive. For me that is my cat or my grandchildren or my kids. All positives and all have a great way of helping with the stress.

Butter Pecan Ice Cream is like a bad relationship ...

Friday, April 12, 2013

I was talking to a friend of mine the other day , Hes a body builder and if you want to call him a " health nut " . I was complaining I was sick ... That I ate a bowl of ice cream and then one more ! emoticon ... " I was feeling down " I said , " I remember when eating a bowl of ice cream made me feel better and 2 bowls made me feel even better ! Now I just feel sick . How can something that gave me comfort before make me sick now ? " Your a different person now , your mindset is different your body is different and you don't want to go back to where you were , I used to feel that way about junk food now it doesnt give me pleasure anymore.." Then I realized the way we were talking it sounded like some bad relationship . A healthy life style is like finding the perfect mate ... but you have to be careful not to drag past baggage in to the " New Relationship" Like negative self talk about your body and your ability to achieve what you want in life . Or feeling guilty about missing a work out or having a treat once in a while . Anything is good in moderation and those negative thoughts are from the old relationship you used to have , now you are in a new relationship , where you can enjoy life , its not a diet its a life long commitment and life is not stagnant its flowing . From now on if I mess up then I will forgive myself and move on and try to leave the past in the past ! Even though I am not at my goal weight yet , I am giving myself credit for coming this far and having faith in myself that I can go further , because I am good enough right now , in this moment .

    That was good reading for me - thank you for posting -
I have tried to always keep alternatives to unhealthy food around -

Such as froyo - instead of ice cream
kashi bar instead of donuts
healthy trail mix instead of the candy jar at the office

My "bad romance" is vodka drinks -

A new day...

    lol I can hear Lady Gaga singing now: I'm in a bad romance....... HA!
Great analogy! It's about evolving, becoming, journeying.

And you know there will come a day where I can go out for coffee with Butter Pecan Ice Cream and catch up and be totally content with myself when I walk away: Where I can smile and say, "yeah me and Butter Pecan used to date" and not get bombarded by a million emotions. Right now I think it's best for me to stay away until I am stable with myself. And besides: I have my eye on that cute Cocoa dusted Almond down the street! emoticon
