Another great eating day! How lovely of my neighbour to phone me to go for a walk this evening...I'm leaving in about 6 minutes for an hour of "power walking".

Yep, PERSEVERANCE is probably the most important word in my vocabulary. Today, I'm down another pound. It has not been an easy pound. It took: eating on plan; changing my types of foods; changing my exercises; changing my habits; and making a conscious decision to "suffer through" until success happens.

This week I'm going to continue all those things...I'm so close...I will cross the finish line and STAY THERE this time.

Thanks today goes out a) to my diet buddy and b) to all those on SparkPeople who are supporting me!

Week of work

Thursday, November 08, 2012

It seems this week is presenting itself as a "week of work". That's is good. Today I need to find an exercise that will give my calorie burning a burst of burn.


Another day...

Anxious Tuesday, led to anxious Tuesday night. These feelings are soooooooooooooo unpleasant!!! Yikes.

In spite of them, last night I went out to a pasta supper with some friends. I had "pre-thought" exactly what I was going to eat, and what I wasn't going to eat for weeks!!! All that prep was a God-send b/c I stayed firm with my plan and came out of there a victor!! Just goes to show me that success can be achieved IN SPITE of negative FEELINGS. Isn't it so strange the difference between FEELINGS AND THOUGHTS!! I "thought" I would succeed, but I "felt" anxious.

This was a great life lesson for me.

Today, I'm going to tackle a problem that has been an issue with me for almost all my life. Today, in spite of my feelings, I'm going to ACT towards success.

    Way to go on sticking to your plan. That is so hard for me. I always compromise. You didn't. I hope the anxious feeling subside with time and more successes!

Anxious Tuesday

Tuesday, November 06, 2012

Last night I "closed the kitchen" after supper. What a lovely technique! However, I woke up so anxious several times during the night... Perhaps it will take time to get over that.

Anyway, I was driven to get on the scales today, even though it's not a weigh in day, but I resisted that too. Onward I go...onward I go...

    Good Job Sandi! This could be something that you build a streak on - closing the kitchen. After a while, it won't be at all anxiety-producing and will be normal. It might even help to explore why this would make you anxious. Sometimes my anxieties are messages about something else.

I actually weigh myself almost every day, but I am actually fairly easygoing about it, and a bad weigh is just a checkpoint for me, tomorrow could be different. I am not generally anxious about my weight.

What makes me anxious is my work.

Good for you!
