I have been putting on weight since February...I have seen it, felt it, cursed myself for it, refused to by new clothes, denied it...No More.  Today I stepped on the scale and the weight that I guessed I would be was accurate.  It was not something I wanted to see but I had to face it to make myself get back on track.  My eating issues lie with emotional/stressful eating and bored eating.  I literally will be carrying a bag of chips back to my desk and eating them the whole time telling…


OK day so far...

Today I tried to log my feelings etc. while I ate. I still bought a few extra snacks at work that I did not need but I journaled why I was eating to try and get to the reason that I eat so much.   I made a big pot of oatmeal so I have breakfast made for the entire week.  Tomorrow I will make extra at dinner so I have a few lunches prepared. I am trying to be as prepared as possible so I don't get distracted. 


Those snacks I ate today were not great but it was not as bad as…

I read in a book that I am reading about Self Compassion and weight loss that suggests to "eat like a bird."  It says to make every meal  a songfest and savor the food and the group of people you are with.  Food is something to sing about!

Today while journaling I made four lists:  Why do I eat the way I do? What types of food do  I eat that make me feel out of control?  What times/when do I eat these types of food? and Things I do to sabotage my good health.

While reviewing…

As part of the online Best Body Bootcamp I joined we have to pick two goals to work on daily each week.  One of my goals this weeks was to read the ingredients on the processed foods that I eat and find out more information about those that hard to pronounce!!!!  I don't eat a lot of processed food but I do snack and I know there are unhealthy things I eat.  So here we go:

This week was a busy week. I made sure that I got my water in everyday though and it really seemed to help!  The scale went down.  I did my Best Body Bootcamp workouts (sponsored by Tina at ) and I am feeling great. We only have 2 more weeks left of our online bootcamp!

This week poses a few challenges for eating as I have  a quarterly meeting at work, which involves lunch and an employee recognition banquet on Friday which…

Unfortunately I did not like the spaghetti squash. I'm glad I gave it a try though. I am enjoying the smaller pants however!

Hey, thanks for the reply. I have a BA in Broadcast Communications (won't be using it) and I was interested in pursuing a Master's in Business (Marketing). Haha! Sounds like we are following similar (wind-ey) paths. Take care!

I'm glad that your day went better yesterday! Yes I am loving Zumba! I wasn't sure at first. I didn't feel like I got a good workout the first few times, but now that I can follow the steps without getting lost constantly I get an awesome cardio workout!

Tomorrow morning my instructor is having a 2 hour Zumba class!!! I really want to go, but I work nights so I'll have to see if I get home at a reasonable hour to make it in time for class. I hope I make it because Zumba is such a mood lifter I know I'll feel good all day if I go! Have a great weekend!
