Comitting to Sparkpeople...... Again

When I log my calories before I eat them, I am strong. I have will power, I am am able to maintain control. When I don't, I am a mad woman, consuming everything in sight, with no regaurd to calories, portion size or hunger. Sounds easy then, Just log your calories in the morning. OK then, I can do that, No excuses Emily. Let's finally do this!

Finally doing something right...

I am finally taking my head out of my ass and treating my body right. After watching Food Inc the Movie my husband and I have decided that enough is enough. Enough high fructose corn syrup, enough growth hormone laden meat. Enough phosphates and nitrates. We have decided to plant a garden, a small one to start, and eat locally grown meat and produce. We are buying organic milk, fruit, crackers and vegetables. We are going to start being more active and really care about our environment. Thank you Food Inc, You have truly changed our lives.

Lets go for a walk, shall we?

Olivia went for a nice walk this morning. Well, I enjoyed it, she screamed the second half. The weather is absolutly beautiful out. I am glad we went and were able to get some fresh air. I am going to start taking care of myself. I want to be healthy. I am 30 years old. I am ready to treat my body like it deserves to be treated. I met a very nice lady and 2 of her 3 daughters while I was walking this morning. She is in great shape. I want to be as healthy as she appears to be. I know that I am capable of being healthy. I just have to stop hiding behind all my excuses. So today I start again. Drinking water, logging my calories, eating healthy. Let's make today my last day 1 ever.

My healthy breakfast:

40 grams oatmeal

1 cup almond milk

1/2 ounce raisins

1/2 ounce walnuts

1 tsp brown sugar

Throw it all in a bown, microwave for 90 seconds, so easy and soooo yummy!!!

Healthy snack, an apple...

See you all tomorrow!

Motivated.... Let start over....

Today is Tuesday, Feb 2nd. This sounds like a good day to start taking myself seriously. A good day to stop being weak and giving into temptation. A good day to start caring about my health and paying attention to what I put in my mouth. I am going to go back to eating natural foods and logging my calories on I am the only one who can change myself. I am responsible for my own actions and what I eat. I am going to do this. My goal is 100 pounds down from my highest weight before my 31st birthday. That makes my goal weight 175. 75 more pounds to go. I can do this, I will do this... and it all starts today. Welcome to the new me!

Here we go

I am taking myself and my health seriously now. I signed up for again to log my calories and exercise.... I know I can do this! I need to fight through my cravings.... That is when I slip up the most. I know that I am strong. I know I need to be healthy and I know how to do this! I am doing this.

I am going to lose 50 pounds by my 31st birthday, January 9th, 2011.

I want to accomplish this by taking one day at a time, Making my health a priority. I will workout daily, drink 2 nalgene bottles of water, Eat proper portion sizes, make better snacking choices, cook healthier meals. I will avoid preservatives, caffiene and try to eat only whole foods. I want to be the healthies I am able to be in my 30s and keep my family healthy as well! I CAN do this. I AM doing this!

A Trying week

I wanted so much to continue the momentum I had last week but it has been trying. We went out to dinner to applesbees. I should have have the weight watchers menu, But I didn't We got a 20 piece wings to share, then I had a salad with the crispy chicken on top... Sigh... when will I ever learn. I hopped on the Wii fit yesterday and I was up 2.5 pound from 2 days prior to that. Lets just hope that was water weight and that it didn't stay with me. I weigh in tomorrow at WW. I have not been drinking my water and I have not been logging my food. Seriously! Why can't I stick to the smallest goals? It's like the moment my life get's busy I lose track of everything else. The house gets dirty, I eat poorly, I am in need of some serious life management skills. On the bright side, I did would out yesterday and am super sore today. I did a workout on my new fitness coach Wii game. I can't believe what a good workout it was! I am off to work today for a few hours but maybe I can get another workout in tonight. I am recomitting to my 2 goals for this coming week. I need to make them habbit before I can add more! talk to you soon!

I Lost 4.6 pounds at weight watchers this past week. I needed this so bad! I am more motivated to continue eating well and getting some exercise in. I am writing down all my fods and drinking my water. This sunday I will make some new goals, Like perhaps starting to use points or really making exercise a habbit. I am so happy to be heading in the right direction now!
