I Don't Want to Admit This

Monday, May 14, 2012

I have fallen off the wagon, big time, long time. I'm not sure just how it happened, but one day led to another...and another...and yet more....

So, I finally faced up to the fact that my Doc was not going to write any more scrip refills without seeing me. He's good about that. That meant blood work. And facing the official scale. I've been avoiding all scales. And for good reason... I am now heavier than I have ever been in my life. Ouch. It is amazing what taking the easy way out for lunch can do to you! And my labs were way out of whack. He's doubled my metformin. This is not good. I really don't want to even think about daily shots.

So, I am getting back on track. i got a laptop for something else. But I am going to keep it at work and log in my food then. The nights are just too crazy. That will also make me face up to what I am eating. Today was over 1600 calories on lunch! Time to start finding something else for lunch besides the Pizza Hut buffet. I said I'd gone off the wagon! Off the deep end at that. Besides, that laptop costs money! I need to put it to good use.

Mostly, I think what got me sitting on my duff so much was getting involved in some Ravelry teams. I'm not giving them up, either! I just have to find the balance.

So, for now, i am going to finish logging in my food for today, read a few blogs and drink another glass of water. More updates to follow.

    That has happened to me too many times!
    The biggest help for me was no more eating out! I think those buffets add more calories than we can even count on our food trackers.

    Been there, done that...back to it for me too. What helped me get back was to challenge myself. I challenged myself to exercise for 15 minutes a day, EVERY day for the 47 days of Lent. I completed that challenge and today is day 84 of my fitness streak.

    You could challenge yourself to do 15 minutes of exercise for 2 weeks or bring a lunch for 2 weeks, chose the stairs once a day...anything that challenges you and motivates you. Don't change too many things at once. Some people do too much at once and burn out. The point is to keep going.

    Also, don't beat yourself up if you make a mistake. Life happens! Forgive yourself and move on. One bad meal, or several days of bad choices, isn't going to matter over a lifetime of healthy eating.

    Eat less, move more! You can do it!

    emoticon . The first step is admitting we need to make changes and you have done that now. Take each step one day at a time. Your family need you to get healthy too.
