day 2, headaches...

Ughh, woke up with a small headache and then later in the afternoon it started getting worse. I am sure it is because I had a late lunch at work. But I did the right thing and went home, had a sensible snack and then I meant to go lay down to nap, but got caught up in Downton Abbey. I LOVE that show. Just started watching season 1. Oh well, I plan on going to bed early tonight.

Achievements:

*Stair master for 30 minutes and then did upper body weight lifting
*No walk, as it was raining, but I DID enjoy the thunderstorms! I LOVE thunderstorms!!!!
* No take out, no chips, no scale
* washed laundry and will read from my book club book tonight
* calorie counting done = 1777

I think another successful day!

YES!! RESTART!!!

Absolutely restart, you have learned a lot and your first pages are inspiring and just show the ongoing struggle we all face and need to overcome!

Great motivators and tips to get you going...

McDonald's. dear me, so easy to just pop through drive through when you have teenagers, we are in the car 15 hours each week!! Crazy! I have given up 'meal' ordering and the ONLY thing I allow myself from McDonald's is a grilled chicken snack wrap...only have one and a large unsweet tea...if I MUST do fast food...can't eat a salad on the go...but have those at home daily...

One day a month my husband and I go eat whatever we want! I am planning Five Guys Burger and fries...CAN NOT WAIT! I know it's awful to dream of food, but I do put lots of veggies on my burger and get the junior burger as well But, honestly, I can do ANYTHING for 30 days...then I need a mental break from counting calories for one day, then I'm good for another 30 days...

Philmont...key is at least 5 practice hikes for weekends...at least 10 miles each day...they both lost 14 pounds their stint out there Such a great experience for them, invest or borrow the lightest gear possible, makes a big difference!


Yes!! Losing is a challenge, but we can meet it and slamma jamma it down!

My younger son and dh did Philmont and they loved it. Dh would love to take me out there to see it. He also did Sea Base in the Fl Keys with older son. It was a much easier trip than Philmont.

I LOVE the idea of taking 1 night off and eating anything you want. I LOVE Red Robbin... YUMMMM! There onion rings are my most favorite treat. I'll have to think on that idea. I agree I can do anything for 30 days, but the mental break might be good. I also noticed your 75 pound banner! AWESOME!!!! Can't wait till I can have one of those.

What did you mean by the 5 practice hikes? Is it 5 weekends in a row, or how did they do it?

They started to do the pracice hikes. I know more are coming. I'll have to tell them about the 14# loss. They have gotten light gear and I am sure they are going to work on getting their packs even lighter.

I would love to go out there too! DS did not do Sea Base, and I wish he would have. They did Boundary waters and now Philmont. I wish he would have done all 3, but it didn't interest him. I know they are going to have an amazing time!

day 3. CRAVING SNACKS

Ughhh, tonight I am struggling. CRAVING snacks. anything crunchy, salty, but can not have, Must not have...

I did pretty good today. But it stinks that it is so hard to make the changes. I am very hungry too. I know that I am probably eating 1/3 of the calories or even on my really bad days a 1/4 of the calorie intake. I was eating WAYYYYY too much. I guess this is just an adjustment, and I will weather this storm...

I also was tempted to just jump on the scale at the gym, but the mantra I have is "No good will come from weighing in early", and it kept me from the scale. VERY PROUD of that!

Accomplishements:
1. No take out!
2. No chips!
3. count calories and log all foods Done, calories = 1510
4. exercise and walk= 46 min. on elliptical, rowing and lat. pull down weight lifting (raining, no walk)
5. After calculating caloric need, stay in the red Done!
6. complete 1 task daily (folded laundry, dishes, kitchen clean up and read from book club book)
7. avoided the scale!

sticking with it, I'm determined, but boy is this hard

Wow, is all I can say. I am comitted to doing this, but it certainly is a challenge. I had the urge to snack tonight, but at least chose healthy! Went grocery shopping and did pretty good there too, so I am pleased. We had Subway for dinner and I did make 1 concesion. I had baked chips instead of regular chips and I am glad I did it. Finding a way to make this a healthy lifestyle change and something I can do for a long time.

Accomplishements:
1. Had Subway
2. Baked chips
3. count calories and log all foods Done, calories = 2050
4. exercise and walk= 46 min. on stairmaster, leg machines for weight lifting (raining, no walk)
5. After calculating caloric need, stay in the red Done! (believe it or not, it still is in the red, but barely
6. complete 1 task daily (read from book club book)
7. avoided the scale!

day 5, finally feeling a change

This morning I finally felt better! I woke up and just physically felt better. It helped me just to realize, or confirm, that I have to be consistent and trust in the process... Then I will start feeling better & better. I've always had trouble being cosistent, and making changes for the long term. Glad that my focus is just that right now, to take 4 weeks and focus on changes and not the scale.

Today no chips, no take out, calories - 1720, eliptical 30 min., accomplishment today is working out. I was very tired after work. I decidef to go work out, but only go for 30 min. And to focus on just enjoying myself... Who knew I would love that feeling so much, but I doa

Hi Vija. Glad you starting up this again - doing the same. I have a long story - my journal will be called "Follow the Yellow Arrows" - and will be up before the end of the week.

I restarted April 12th - starting slow. Food first, charting, journaling and not letting ED out of control.

First 5k of the year (which will be the first one totally completed since before Breast cancer diagnosis last year) in about five weeks - starting up training again tomorrow.

April 12 was the 39th anniversary of when I first decided to surrender my life to God and it was the 33th anniversary of the beginning of Terry Fox's Marathon of Hope, so it seemed fitting.

More later.

Thanks for the Christmas cards and the pictures of your beautiful family - go for it lady, let this year be a healthy year, the year we do it!

Have a magical losing day.


Linda

3rd time is a charm??? Day 1

3rd time is a charm??? or should I say 300 millionth time is a charm? I have started and restarted so many times, but I refuse to give up on myself. So here goes... 3rd time to complete 365 days of healthy choices and finally loose weight for good!!!!

What motivated me? Well, DS just left for college and my heart is broken. BUT before he left he started to get into rock climbing. He said that if I loose the weight he will teach me and take me rock climbing. Soooo.... what's a mother to do that wants to stay connected with her now adult son? Move Heaven and Earth to loose the weight so that we can continue to connect. Although this frightens the heck out of me because I am afraid of heights!

That got me to thinking what else activity wise do I want to do? DH and I will need to find something to do once DD flies the coop and I would love to get into backpacking with DH. (DS and DH went to Philmont scout camp this past summer and their experience sounded AMAZING)

I also want to earn that very elusive black belt, and I would LOVE to go river rafting and river tubing and hiking in the Narrows in Arizona, and hiking further down into the grand canyon, and horseback riding in the water during our cruise, and wearing a beautiful ball gown on formal night of the cruise, and keeping up with DH as he walks, and finally fitting on that darn Harry Potter ride.

So, last night I found a book I want to read to help me along the way. I recharged the MP3 player so I can have great work out music.

Today's healthy choices included:

1. having baked tilapia when we went out for lunch instead of the chicken Alfredo.

2. Making the decision to get back to journaling!!!! I have missed all of you, and I want to make this happen.

day 2... Some is better than none

DH and I had a long talk a few weeks back and we came up with this mantra together. I am a perfectionist by nature and I think sometimes it can be used as an excuse, not sure, but often I feel I need to do it 100% perfect. Can't be perfect, so we talked and came up with that mantra... Some is better than None. And I use it a lot for many things. Laundry, cleaning, projects. If I can't get it all done in 1 day, it is OK, as "some is better than none" and slowly I will chip away at my projects and weight loss.

todays healthy choices:
1. No extra snacking right after lunch
2. went for a walk

AND DS skyped us today, let us know how college is going to far and I am so happy to have heard from him!!!!!

day 3, not a lot of good choices today

hmmm, I really didn't do a lot of healthy choices. I thought of one thing I did, and it isn't good that I had to try to find a healthy choice, I should be doing many.

DH and I were watching a TV show and I kept my hands busy by folding clothes. I guess that is a plus, but I'd like a few more healthy choices. I will try and do better tomorrow.
