Can I Have a Do-Over?

My weekend was great...my eating was bad.  Very bad.  I just read some advice given on Jack Sh*t's blog this morning...I think it was from Roxie.  She said "Start today.  Keep re-starting until it sticks".  And so here I am again, re-starting, AGAIN.  Consistency really shouldn't be this hard...but apparently I'm the queen of making things hard.  I'm sure my weigh-in this Friday will reflect that.  I managed to put forth the effort last night to write out some calories and pre-pack/prepare my breakfast, lunch and snacks for my 9 1/2 hour workday today.  I've got 1000 calories of healthy stuff that I brought with me today, leaving a few hundred on the table for dinner tonight.  I'm thinking I need to cut it down to 1500.  The 1800 limit feels a little stupid for me when I know I'm not grinding out the calorie burn on the treadmill right now.  Oh and my ankle did a disgusting little popping thing 2x in the last 3 days.  Big fun.  Alright guys....let's try this again.....(eyeroll).

  2. Love that advice from Roxie on Jack Sh*t. That's all we can do..keep trying. I get burned out on dieting..it can get old, but the reward is so worth it! Good Luck today!

  4. My weekend sort of fizzled on the eating front on Sunday. I just couldn't not eat 2 awesome donuts (like the ultimate pariah of healthy eating) that someone brought to a meeting. DAMN. Did walk, but this morning (and I'm gonna post about it today) I'm sure I broke my right pinky toe ramming it into a chest in the middle of the night. All I could think was "oh no...this will mess up my exercising", which is the only thing I've been doing right! Actually after icing, taping and ibuprofen, it's feeling okay. Anyway - begin again. We're the queens of that!

  6. Would it help mixing things up a bit. Doing something in a different way, so you're a little more excited. Sounds like a good way is what you started by prepacking stuff for work. Be sure to put it out on a plate like your serving a queen ... as you mentioned being royalty but take it to a positive point. Weigh-in is far enough away to really make a difference. Just look ahead at all you can do. I'm cheering you on Tammy. It's not easy but you've done it before and you can do it again. RAH, RAH, RAH!!

  10. I love your blog. You rock! I am a start and restarter. Eventually we will stick with it. This
    is it for me; this time I am so much more aware of how I feel when I eat certain things. I'm going for AWARENESS. I want to eat things that make me feel really good. I just finished by pre-planned lunch (now that was a first!) and ate
    vegetables -- real vegetables. I HATE vegetables.
    They were good. Maybe I am making friends with vegetables. You and I are at a similar weight; I at 230 after having gotten to 199 from 285. I love what you say about starting over! I'm going to put it on my desktop. Thanks. Drop by at http://www.waitingtolose.blogspot.com and let's keep in touch.

  11. There are days the nutella just screams from the cabinet, doesn't it?. Weight fluctuates. Life fluctuates. Every day is a new day isn't it? Small daily choices over time can incrementally lead up to large outcomes (good or bad)..--btw, you're doing great!!!

  12. You can do this. You can. I did and am doing it. I just hope you find the determination to make it stick sooner than I did (mid-fifties). Lots of bloggger support. SO, restart!!
