Confession: Last night my husband said, tentatively, "Uh...when you get closer to black belt testing, you should probably...not eat chips like that. I mean, should try more fruits and vegetables, you know? For your test?"

In a fury, I tossed the nearly-empty bag into the feelings were hurt. I'd gotten busted while binge-eating, and I hated myself for it. I vowed in that moment to never eat again, to run 5 miles every day, to starve myself...etc. etc. Just a venting of the opposite extreme.

Today: Reset. Breakfast tracked. Lunch tracked. Both healthy. Before I leave work, I will plan both dinner and my workout.

By the way, on a psychological note, why am I purposely avoiding tae kwon do classes when I know I want to test in December?

    Sometimes changing & advancing are scary things...for reasons I don't understand either! Good job dusting yourself off & starting again today!

Got Booty? This One's For You!

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

I heard this on the radio this morning -- it's my new anthem! All you ladies out there with junk in the trunk, embrace your curves!

"All About That Bass"
by Meghan Trainor

Yeah, it's pretty clear, I ain't no size two
But I can shake it, shake it
Like I'm supposed to do
'Cause I got that boom boom that all the boys chase
And all the right junk in all the right places

I see the magazine workin' that Photoshop
We know that sh** ain't real
C'mon now, make it stop
If you got beauty, beauty, just raise 'em up
'Cause every inch of you is perfect
From the bottom to the top

Yeah, my mama she told me don't worry about your size
She says, "Boys like a little more booty to hold at night."
You know I won't be no stick figure silicone Barbie doll
So if that's what you're into then go ahead and move along

Because you know I'm
All about that bass
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass

I'm bringing booty back
Go ahead and tell them skinny bi****es that
No I'm just playing. I know you think you're fat
But I'm here to tell ya
Every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top

Tomorrow is the Dreaded 4th Day

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

A co-worker and I just figured out that

1) We are both secret binge-eaters.
2) When we start a plan, we are both really good for the first three days. Then we blow it on Day 4.

Well, tomorrow is my Day 4. I'm gritting my teeth already. So here are the plans:

For today, food is already pre-tracked. Also, I am planning to jog tonight. To make sure it gets done, I will run BEFORE dinner. If I can't eat until I run, you better believe I'm going to run!

For tomorrow, that infamous Day 4...First I will track food tonight to plan for tomorrow, using the Spark Solution as my guide. For a workout, I will take my daughter to the high-belt tae kwon do class so we can both get our fitness for the day. I will avoid cookies and Halloween candy.

That's the plan. Keep it simple!

    Tomorrow may be Day 4 but what's happened before is in the past so tomorrow will be the first step in a new direction. This is a great plan you put together. Take a day at a time. If you got through today you can and WILL get through tomorrow.

    I think it's great that you have put in the thought, and I think it's very common to lose some novelty after three days! You'll have to update us tomorrow!

Back to Solutions

Sunday, October 19, 2014

I found myself recommending The Spark Solution to a co-worker, especially since I lost about six pounds in two weeks when I did it.

Then I thought, Hmmm...Perhaps I should be doing this again.

So today was the first day! I've grocery shopped, chopped, roasted, and cooked. I pinpointed my weaknesses today (cookies and Halloween candy) and nearly stayed in range.

I also took my new German Shepherd puppy for a hike in the woods. She's 12 weeks old, and she was quite the trooper!

With only 12 days to go in October, my plan is to go from 148 to 145 by Halloween. This can be done!

Intervention Day 8: One Step Back

Monday, September 08, 2014

I did okay...until I got home from work at 5:00. Hungry. Facing down a pan full of brownies. Hungry. Italian bread on the counter.

I couldn't stop from eating two helpings of each. Then I gave up and ate half of a Tombstone pizza before I got it back under control. The entire day ended up at 1860 calories -- 450 over my limit.

Went to Tae Kwon Do at 7:00 and worked hard. Hopefully, this will help counteract the binge fest.

Plan ahead: Track now for tomorrow's meals and workout.
