taking it a day at a time

Tuesday, February 18, 2014

well yesterday i went over on my calories and i did not work out but today has been great so far. I am constantly giving myself small talks. I am going to work out for 45 mins to make up for yester day. one thing i want to do is tonight put up a pic so i can have some bf and after pic. i want to use pictures to be able to see my progress and use them to remind myself self to never go back. i just have to get with this eatting process i have bout some measuring cups bc i plan to measure out everything eat. my problem is i have always used food for comfort so now i have to replace that. i have to keep telling myself i can do it.

    I know all about using food as a comfort. I've been an emotional eater since I was a kid. The fitness part of this journey came rather easily for me, and it's been fun. The food part I still struggle with, but I'm managing and will get better... and so will you! emoticon

    One day at a time is a great way to go! I went over my calories for a couple of days but then got right back to making good choices. We'll all do that, but just have to keep going and not be too tough on ourselves. It's a process and we're learning!

    I found that planning meals and snacks within my calorie range makes it possible to get through the day without hunger. If I do have the urge to snack, I do a 15-20 min. activity first. Usually the urge passes. If it doesn't I know I'm hungry, so I grab one of my little snacks.

    You CAN do it!! I seriously take one meal at a time, one day at a time, one week at a time. When I mess up (whether by accident or a planned "cheat" day) I get right abck up the next day and keep going.

    I wish I had more pictures of myself from before I lost any weight for comparison. I just hated taking my picture. Now I love it and I use my before and after (well, more like "during" since I'm not at my goal weight yet) as motivation.

    Good luck, you can do it!!
