Trying Really Hard

Well I have tried really hard ( ok, not that hard I guess ) to be good this weekend. Yesterday I was really wanting to eat. I had a small bowl of spagetti right after work (that's another bad time for me ), then I went to my friend's and had a smal enchilda, little bit of salad with this really good cilatro dressing. Then about a half cup of home made ice cream. So I went to bed really full. I do not like that feeling. Then today I had a turkey BLT for breakfast. Then I took my grandson to the movie right after his game. I was so hungry that I ate a bunch of popcorn and some red licorice. Then again felt sick after. Too much. I am going to make myself scallops and steamed squash. So if things aren't as good on the scale has hoped for I'll know why that happened. I am not going to be freaked out about this and continue to eat. I am leaving the house for a part time job and I won't be home to eat the rest of the night. I read on someone's blog ( can't remember who, I have been lots of new blogs the couple of days. Anyway she said that she tricks herself when she tells herself she hasn't gone over on points, so she doesn't feel like "Well I blew it....I might as well eat all day, week, month, year like a fool." I am sure you can relate. I thought that I might try that trick as a way of getting right back on plan after an afternoon like this one today.

I did walk this morning with friend. Went for about an hour. I love walking this time of year. It's still real chilly in the morning, then in the day it get's up around 80. LOVE IT. It was fun going to the grandson's football game this morning too. I have felt really good today. I am anxious to go to church tomorrow. I have been being better with my prayers and scripture study too. I think that just those 2 actions alone make me feel a world better. So have a good Saturday night no matter what you are doing....


  1. It's all baby steps and awareness - like you, I've discovered I don't like that "too full" feeling. Of course, it took me a long time to figure that out! You're doing so much better than you were even a month ago. Remember, one day at a time.

  2. Thanks Shelly....your right. I am doing lots better, and it is baby steps. Thanks for the reminder.

  3. Way to go on the lose this week Dana, you are doing great. Try not to stress over the weekend about eating, being aware is the first big key. Sorry I've been missing. *hugs*

  4. Great positive mentality you have there! Sounds like you can get right back on track even if you do slip up a little :) No worries! Brand new week!

  5. I don't like that full feeling either! I know I've eaten too much the night before if I wake up in the morning and not hungry for breakfast. Dr. Oz on Oprah said that's an indication that you've eaten late in the night or ate too much.

    It's great that you have a great attitude and notice what you're weaknesses are.


Tell me what you think!
