DAY 6 epc-

Sunday, August 07, 2011

dAY 7- still pretty good mindframe today but let me ask you this---Why do I think I can cheat? Why do I think I can put off "just one more" meal? without calorie counting,,,, its like I think im going to get away with it- and that... just one more won't hurt. So no more "getting away with it" Strict caloie counting every bite needs to happen-

I just watched a vlog of a gal who was told by her drs that she wouldn't run again and today she just got up and went and did it!! (see Letyaks,(one of my spark friends) vlog for today- very awesome) So i am very much inspired. I actually like to workout and I love how I feel when Im done- and when im on a roll with it so I am not sure why I put it off.

On another note- still haven't weighed myself this month. I do think its keeping me happier...not tourturing myself with the number. :)

Nitey nite sparkies! Im SLEEPY!! :)

    I struggle the same way. I wrote a blog this morning and feel like I am learning, but then I turn around and was lazy today and ate bad and since I messed up early I let myself think that it was ok to just eat whatever all day.....big mistake. But I am gonna start fresh when I wake up in the morning and not continue the spiral. Hope you have a good Monday !

    Hey hun, don't beat yourself WE all have meals/days that we feel like we want or can cheat. If you do it once in a while it isn't so bad, just don't make a habit of it. And get right back on the wagon the next day! I hate weighing myself as well. I like to go by progress pics/how my clothes fit, etc. Have great week!

    Sherri-just try eating foods that aren't processed! Snack on yummy mixed nuts. YUM! Or dark chocolate. Or berries. Things that are not processed are easier for your liver to break down. Your liver's goal is to burn fat and break down harmful things in your body. Processed foods ARE harmful, and if your liver is so focused on breaking down the processed foods, it won't be able to work on burning fat. So if you eat natural foods, calorie counting doesn't matter as much! My favorite snack lately is natural peanut butter (try smuckers organic or natural) mixed with plain greek yogurt with a little honey mixed in too. This is AMAZING and YUMMY and FILLING! And I have been snacking on mixed nuts and a few dark chocolate chips here and there. That way I am getting my sweet fix and my salty fix. Drink LOTS of water too! Helps keep you full!

    These are just a few things that I've been doing that have apparently been working because I'm down 4 pounds and 2.5 inches! You can do it girl! I know you can!

    I would also suggest maybe printing off a sheet of paper and posting it everywhere that says something inspirational. Like "I am doing this for myself, so I can look and feel amazing." Or whatever works for you.

    OK, I love you! See you tomorrow! emoticon

    I do not have the answer for your questions. I do know I used to do the same and some days I still slip off in that kind of behavior. One day I decided to follow the suggested SparkPeople meal plans and to track everything to get into a discipline. When I slip off I tracked it, too and when I saw the results, how In was messing out with my meals and how it was hurting my process, that puts and end to it.

    Good for you for getting your exercise dome, I, too, feel great after I am done, so I know how you feel after you are done with yours.

    Keep it up, you can do this!!!!
