I would have to say cutting back on my pop consumption from several day to only 2 a week. I also think that logging my food daily is a big accomplishment for me.

What's your biggest healthy eating accomplishment so far?

Cooking more meals at home

Eating more fruits and vegetables

Turning down my old temptations

Learning to love healthy foods

Logging my Nutrition all or most days

Giving up soda

I would say cooking meals at home. I have control over what my DH and put into our systems. (He also has control) DH likes to cook also!! We do eat more fruit and veggies. And we are learning to eat more healthy foods

I would say 'Hardly ever' for me. It is not that I am not tempted, it is because I start calculating how many fitness minutes it will take to burn it off. I try to stay within my calorie range.

When you face a craving, how often do you give in to it?

Every time! I can't control myself!

Every time, but a small portion

Most of the time

Sometimes

Hardly ever

Never


I sometimes give into the cravings. If I do give in it is usually just a taste. That seems to calm the beast in me. LOL

This will be my first year to really try to get exercise in during the holidays as in the past I wasn't doing exercises. I plan to schedule the exercise and hope that I don't run out of time to get it done.

How do you actually exercise during the holidays?


Same routine as always
Schedule it in, but run out of time
On some days, off some days
I give up even trying!

I think both can be critical...but I think women tend to be more vicious about it...just go read some of the entries to different "celebrity photo" articles. Or the way some people attacked our own fitness coach when she put out one of her dvds.

I agree, women can be and usually are more critical ot other women, but deep down we all know it is covering our own insecurities of our own bodies.

Yes, it affected me. I was not able to log on. Site had stated that it was down. Today, when I was on Trivia, I answered 3 correct questions, it just kept giving options to answer more, I did, then finally quit. When I did, it only gave me credit for 2 correct answers. I suppose that there is more work going on.

yes, I was trying to log nutrition, read articles, and post to others blogs but couldn't as I didn't know the site was going to be down otherwise I would have gotten on earlier to get those things done. I still can't get points for "Read a dailySpark Blog Entry" even after the maintenance last night.

My mother told me If god made it eat it if man made it throw it away. So I would say the answer is no.
But taken in small amounts why would it be bad for us.

I think corn syrup is worse, but sugar isn't much better. Mostly I try to avoid both when I can.

I think they all go hand in had. As I lose weight I become healthier in which I look better and then live longer because of the healthy living.

I think it depends on what is causing the stress. Sometimes I take off in the car and just spend time along thinking, sometimes I take a nap, and at times I will reach out for food.

When you're stressed, what do you usually do?

Reach for food--fast!
Walk or exercise to clear my head
Relax with deep breathing, meditation or yoga
Call a friend to talk it out
Lash out at others for no reason
Go on a shopping spree



Me I love to shop

I think logging my nutrition has been the biggest for me.

Although all of them to some degree. It has been a year and a half since I've had soda (except for one day at a restaurant, I ordered Pepsi but didn't like it and couldn't finish it. I won't do that again.)

None of the above.
It's portion control, pure and simple. I never drank a lot of soda, always liked healthy foods, love my fruits and veggies, and raising 4 kids on my own, eating out a lot was never an option. I just always ate too much of whatever it was I was eating.

I log my nutrition every day and I have cut back on soda as I used to dring at least 2 cans or more a day and not I am down to just having 2 servings of pop on the nights that I work. I also have been trying to eat more fruits & vegetables.
