Seduced by the Cookie yesterday but Victorious Over the Pizza Today!!

Wednesday, December 01, 2010

Ok, The Giant Cookie got me yesterday. I did good the rest of the day. Made the famous zero point cabbage soup and ate my 0 point fruits and veggies for the rest for the day. Did a kickboxing video. All was well....until I got to work!

There were trays and trays of pizza emoticonand christmas cookies emoticon everywhere! I couldn't believe it. I lost the battle with the giant cookie yesterday, I was not to be defeated again. GAME ON!

First, I removed the pizza and cookies from in the nurse's office and took it to the dining room.
Next, I drank most of my water for the day.
Then, I ate the nutritious lunch I brought for myself!
BoooYah!!! In your face!! Fatty , high calorie foods!

emoticon

I am DONE with making poor choices daily with food. I can indulge every now and then but not two days in a row! I am glad I didn't give into a self-defeating attitude and eat the crappy food tonight because I screwed up yesterday. In the past I would have just given up at the first stumble. Not anymore! I am DONE!

YAY VIRGINIA!!! (That's me, of course, lol)

I ATE THE DARN GIANT COOKIE

Tuesday, November 30, 2010

I ate the giant cookie from Panera. 13 points on WW. I am not going to beat up on myself. I was stressed (Dad's in the hospital) and tired. Too weak to resist it. Will just have to make better choices for the rest of the day. O point fruits and veggie soup. I see some kickboxing in my future for this evening.

It's ok, I have not failed, I am not defeated! emoticon

of chilly (before WW) iit was 28 points!!! OMG no wonder I weighed over 230!
You have a good handle on your long term eating .. good attitude just keep on trying.

    Good for you for NOT letting that cookie ruin your day! Sometimes, cookies happen-- all that matters is how you respond-- and you have set yourself up for success for the rest of the day! Keep it up :)

Why can't I haul my butt into gear?!?!

Saturday, November 27, 2010

Ok, I've been walking occasionally but I have not gotten back into the routine of exercising "hard core" as I did at the beginning of the year. Working out was second nature to me then....It was automatic, I didn't even think about it. I was just at the the gym 3-4 times per week. I need to get that back!

I felt fabulous working out in 2 months I lost 17 inches overall.

It was a stress reliever for me but it is the stress in my life now that I believe is preventing me from going. I will not give up until it is a habit for me to go to the gym.

    I find that I absolutely MUST make time for exercise, it really helps me to deal with stress better. If nothing else, see if you can squeeze in 1 or 2 of the SP 10 minute cardio videos. A little is better than none and it can help alleviate the effects stress is having on you.

Is really trying to get in tune with my body

Thursday, November 25, 2010

This week in WW for me was about paying attention to my body signals. I am really trying to be aware of what my body is telling me. I check myself often during the day and see if I am full, hungry or ok for now. I am trying to stay away from extreme hunger or fullness.

Also, I exploring why I eat in between meals. Am I not eating filling foods during meals or am I eating because of being bored, lonely, sad, etc.

After I eat, I am listening to what my body is saying to me. Was that a good meal that provided me the nourishment that I needed or was it something that made me feel crappy?

Early Morning Phone Call from My Doctor...Insulin Resistant

Wednesday, November 24, 2010

Before leaving work this morning, I received a call from my doctor. I saw her last week due to me being fatigue all the time. She ran a bunch of lab work. Most came back essential normal but I am in her words, "somewhat insulin resistant". This was one of my biggest fears since I gained weight was the possibility of being at risk for type 2 diabetes and/or heart disease.

My mother has type 2 diabetes and watched her struggle with it for years. Now that I know that I am "somewhat insulin resistant" I am at increased risk of developing diabetes and/or heart disease. Solution: LOSE WEIGHT AND BE MORE ACTIVE

I can do this! I am more dedicated to my resolve now to get healthy, I am not going down that road of Diabetes. emoticon

    I am doing my final for Health Care on Diabetes... you can stop this now! It is totally reversible! The good thing is, that it was caught early and you have a chance to turn things around. The American Diabetes Association has all the info you need to get moving in the right direction including diet, recipes, exercise etc... I am so excited for you that you found out now instead of letting it go to the point of full blow Diabetes! That is a God moment... in my book!
