Seems like it has been forever since we talked, hee hee. Hope you all are doing well?!!
So I was thinking about something and thought I'd blog about it. Then I came here and saw what my last blog was about... aaagghhh... now I'm feeling depressed.
I was commenting on a friend's post on FB and another friend's post showed up. It was about weight loss and so I clicked on it. I won't say what it was, but it was to sell me something, and part of it was like SparkPeople. Well if you know me, you know I love my SP and will stand up for them over everyone else, hee hee, no leaving here for that!!! BUT... she did have some good info in there, and since I'm not a huge reader and she was saying it all, I just watched and listened.
Over all it was about a lady who tried to loose weigh on all these "diets" but it kept coming back. I'm good here, I know "diet" is not the way to go. Learning to change your lifestyle with food and how active I am is what I have to do.
Okay, so still watched it and she said it was all about "insulin"... again, making since. She talked about not eating processed foods, and how even though the foods will say they are good for you, they LIE! Know this too...
My BIG question... and by this time I realized I was not going to get my answer unless I purchase what she was selling... but my question is WHAT FOODS CAN I EAT?!!? I know, fruits and veggies, but what do I do when I'm getting bored of those, or don't want to get bored with them?!?! When I want a sandwich which breads are good, when I need a dinner for my family, what is good?
I know SP has this all here, but I'm still confused (not good when it comes to all this and understanding it).
Like my last blog said, I was on a roll. I was feeling good and noticing changes. This went on for a while and I was so happy. But I'd say this last month I have noticed the changes again, and NOT the way I want! I know I have been bad and I also stopped going to the gym. I WANT to go, but can't seem to find the time. I feel very stressed all the time too.
I know, I HAVE to find the time and exercise/ go to the gym. I also once read, or heard, I have to think about it like a doctor or dentist appointment. I understand that and have tried, but I go to the doctor's once a year and to the dentist every 6 months. NOT 3 to 5 days A WEEK!!! I have two "cubs" who are very active in their school, church, and sports. When I find a time to "maybe go" to the gym is at 10pm or very early in the morning. I guess I should point out at this moment, I LOVE to sleep, hee hee. Getting to the gym for 4:30am is not my thing!
Okay, so thinking more positive like a dear Spark Friend of mine would (yes, that's you Melissa)...
Soon my oldest cub will be getting his licence, and that'll help. Mommy who has to drive them every where and be everywhere... sometimes at the same time, different places... will get a little break. I see the gym in my future.
Other positive note...
My sister lost all her weight... here with SP's help... and has kept it off for years! She lost it all with no exercise and just watching what she ate.
So now we are back to my mystery... what are those foods, and can I learn and do this?!?! I honestly could give up most of my food, but my ice cream, hee hee. I have learned portion control there, so that's good! Lately though, eeekkk....
I know I can do this, and will. Just need to get back on track! I was liking how I was feeling and want that back.
Thanks for reading and any comments below, hee hee. I appreciate all my SPARKIE love from all my friends!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Hope you all have a very blessed day!
And remember... portion control, hee hee
I'll leave you with some photos from the end of our Fall season. These were at my oldest cub's soccer tournament.... have a wonderful day, and keep shining bright!
