OLD HABITS die hard

Monday, December 14, 2009

Hi everyone,

Well, the past few weeks I've been pretty bad. I've completely fallen back into the old habits of stress-eating/drinking and the scale certainly shows it. I've not exercised. I've not read my cards or hardly done anything I'm supposed to do. The end of the semester cookies, brownies, and candy that students have given me have NOT stayed in the office -- they've come home. 'NUFF SAID.

I'm sure not proud of how I've done! HOWEVER, this week should be less stressful than the past couple, so I'm planning to exercise and do better food-wise.

I know not blogging or getting on Spark keeps me going down a bad path, so I need to get on the site EVEN WHEN I'm not doing well. Heck, that's probably when I need it most.

Vandal, when you read this, don't be too disappointed in me! Heck, the way we're both going you might make it to 160 before me!

Take care everyone and keep fighting the good fight!

    Well at least you are self aware enough to know what you were doing isn't helpful. Good job on getting a plan together for how you deal with this week.

    Hi TG,

    If I get to 160 before you - YOU KNOW I'll never let you forget it.

    Sorry you're having a tough holiday season but you know you have the "spark" within you so dig deep and get it going from here on! You were so hot a couple of weeks ago you need to recapture those moments. You are WORTH the effort and remember the prize. Think how good you're going to feel winning this battle.

    Don't start the I'll do this after Christmas that's a formula for disaster so keep blogging and find a way to do the dreadmill or your power pump!

    You can to this TG - anymore goodies you thank the giver and then immediately take them to the lounge and let the others eat them or re-gift them. Don't let them hang around your office!!

    You take care and I'll be checking on you!

    TG, it is so true that when we stop sparking we're going on the wrong path. Let's take it one week at a time. We'll show that Vandal what we're made of!! emoticon

    Don't be too sure I'll get there before you. I think you have a pretty good handle on what you're doing wrong and will get right back up again. Good Luck.
