FORESTPAL - How are you doing? What is going well? What is challenging you? Hope all is well. emoticon



Ok, I guess I am going to check in every few days. emoticon
I have been using my "magic" journal so I will share the basics here.

Day 5 Magic Notebook
Writing down things every morning instead of at night. I am working on observing food cues and letting them go. It is tough when I am feeling stressed and others are eating around me. I had finished dinner and my son brought a pizza home. It had been a bad day and the pizza smelled so good. I didn't eat any. It helped that I had just finished dinner. We decided to try that pizza place on another day. Hard to find good gluten free pizza.

Day 6 Protect Your Program
I love the "not just yet; I'm going to wait a little bit." I haven't had to use it yet but it is perfect for my MIL. Protecting my program at all costs is something I have to work on. I give in to others and I haven't been planning ahead very well. I did join another Spark team that is very active and Paleo so it is helping me to focus.

Day 7 I can do it!
I have post it notes all over the house, at the moment. Positive reinforcement! I can do it because... my life depends on it. I want to move more easily. I want to be healthy. I want to go hiking and not worry about not being able to keep up.
I am capable of anything! emoticon

Day 8 Help me, please...
I actually had this conversation with my DH this weekend. He helped me prep food for the week, yesterday. It was awesome! He is helping by being in this with me.

day 3 & 4: I faltered, but did not quit. Followed my plan except for wine at 11 PM. I drank it to avoid sweets I was yearning for. That worked, and tonight I plan to use diet tonic water instead of wine. I'll be home free if/when that works. Did re-lose a pound.

Thanks for the encouragement,

I just realized I have not posted here, even though I am working throught book in my journal so here are my days 2-4.

Day 2 - Interested or committed?
I have always been "interested", I guess. I give up or lose interest when I don't see the results I want. I go back but my interest wanes when the scale refuses to budge. I don't blame everyone else, I blame me when I go off plan. I need to find it inside of me to not give up on myself. I need to find other ways of keeping my motivation strong. I need to commit.

"NO MATTER WHAT!!!"

Today I will stick to my food plan and hit my steps goal...NO MATTER WHAT!
I have placed sticky notes on my fridge and in my office that say 140 - No matter what!!!

Day 3 - Do it anyway!
I can take responsibility and I can lay out a plan with the best of them, but sticking to the plan when things go sideways is a challenge for me.
Stay motivated and the results will follow... This is what I have to work on, stying motivated.
I will stick to my food plan and hit my step goal whether I want to or not!!!

Day 4 - Boundaries, not diets.
Boundaries. I like it. It fits very well with me determining my "shade" of Paleo. My narrow and wider road plans are in my journal.

please post every step you take so I can travel along with you. I didn't finish the 100 when I tried it, but it clarified lots of things for me. I'd like to do it again, but I need a prod. You could provide that, "'My Turn Now.'"

Today is the Lunar New Year. A good day for a fresh start. This is my second attempt at working my way through Linda Spangle's 100 Days of Weight Loss. emoticon


emoticon Day 1 - I used to be that way...

I used to...

~ Give up on my goals because I put everyone else's needs before my own.
~ Discount my 'gut' feelings about things.
~ Go off plan when I get mad, sad, bored or upset.

Now I ...
~ Keep working toward my goals and taking care of my needs. Find balance between caring for my loved ones and caring for myself.
~ Trust my gut.
~ Journal, breathing exercises or go for a walk when I am mad, sad, bored or upset.
