karbear45's Journal, 20 July 2014

Love the reminder to weigh in, but yet today , I hated to do it. I am going the wrong way. I am tying to get back on track, but these old habits are so ingrained...

I am doing better at tracking than I was - I am witnessing all the wrong choices I am making. I am kicking myself - but yet the new day starts and here I go again.

I thought about switching to a more restrictive plan, but those usually backfire within a few days. I know I need to refocus my energy (what little I have) to my health. My body is telling me this all day, everyday. I also know that both sugar and salt are my enemies at the moment. I like the healthy stuff too and I eat that - I eat my fruits. I eat my veggies. I eat lean meats - most of the time. So why can't I stop with the sweets and junk foods? Or at least cut them way back?
I could use an increase in my water drinking. Still I am drinking way more than I used to. My activity is another area that needs some improvement. Maybe I should look into joining the gym outside of work. Make it an appointment to stop there before going home. I should at least stop by and check it out - because once I come home, there's no ambition whatsoever. Besides I get a discount off the price from my employer...

Time to get off here and try and create a plan that will work and that will work with my life.

I hear myself in your post. One part of me knows all the right things to do. Another part is thinking about chips and cookies. I know that I can lose weight if I pay attention and make the right choices, get exercise and limit the indulgences...I just have to DO it! Good luck!

it took me a while to shake the cookies. i was having them at night if i had any calories left over. a box of cookies did last a long time though. now i have almost forgotten them. it takes time. i am doing a no sugar challenge. maybe that would be good for you too. it starts today. it's great to get a discount at the gym from your employer. i would take advantage of that. you have to find something you really like to do though, so you can stick with it. at least check it out. best of luck!!
