    Oh my goodness. I didn't realize I had been off the grid for so many days! I need a good kick in the butt! :blush:

    I did really good yesterday, best day in a very long time. I didn't eat any junk food. Passed on the big bowl of candy (chocolate) left on my desk by my "Secret Spook" at work and brought it home. Brought home a "big cookie" left over from work lunch without taking one single bite and gave it to my husband. Skipped on sweets and no ice cream before bed...ate a bowl of Quaker Instant Oatmeal - Weight Control instead. Went to the gym (YES...THE GYM) last night and walked on treadmill for 30 minutes using the Cardio setting. Hit over 9000 steps on my FitBit Flex. That was a lot for me. I was sweating and my legs felt like rubber, but I did it! Sorry for the novel, but these are huge achievements in my world so I just had to tell someone!

    J4T (Wednesday):
    • Journal every single bite
    • Stay away from refined sugars again today
    • Do my best today teaching a new class and try to cut myself some slack if it doesn't go perfectly
    • Take 30 minutes of "me" time tonight before bed

    Yay! Sounds like you had a great day. How about a pat on the back instead of a kick into the butt?? :wink:

    Stay away from the poptart and donut type carbs even though they will make my sleep-deprived headache go away. Just suck it up and drink more water.

    Oh, come on! That was just a nice short story. Yesterday I wrote my version of War and Peace! I probably should apologize for being so high maintanance but I'm not going to because I managed to pull out a really good day yesterday after several mediocre days in a row.

    I love to read about everyone's struggles (so I know I'm not the only one) and everyone's victories (so I know there hope for me.

    Congrats on your awesome day!

    The following is a mini self-intervention...

    So, for the past several days I have really struggled with my choices. I haven't gone tooooo far over my calorie limit, but I have been eating candy and bread. I felt sick all night last night because the sugar and white flour are just not ok for me. Today I am hungry because that's what sugar does to me.

    I don't want to throw the Halloween treats away, but I will if I have to.



    I am the exact same way. If I eat too many carbs and sugar, it is much harder to resist more of the same. I did that over the weekend! I think the fact that we recognize this is a huge step in getting and staying healthy!

    Yesterday

    1. Drink 2 glasses water with each meal, and 2 glasses between meals :)
    2. low carbs, no sugar :/
    3. raining out, so 30 min on ellipitical :/

    Had a dental crown done yesterday, so off on eating. But I was doing so good all day until hubby wanted popcorn. I figured 1 cup would not hurt me, which it won't. But its getting the carbs in me that is bad. Once I had that popcorn, then I proceeded to get into the halloween candy - candy corns, and then a almond joy. But the good thing was that I brushed my teeth, and stopped at that.
    I should throw out the halloween candy, but grandsons are coming to visit, so I need to have some, plus for little trick or treaters. But, I know what sugar and carbs do to me -- just craving more!

    so JFT
    1. NO sugar, low carbs. This works for me.
    2. drink more water
    3. stay positive. Its a rainy, dreary day again - the kind of day that makes me want to just graze all day!
