About Me

My photo
About me, always hard to put into words a description about myself. We always see ourselves differently than others do. My likes: I love sports, all kinds. Especially NASCAR and baseball. Yea, strange I know, a bleeding heart liberal who likes NASCAR and country music. But here I am. I also am profoundly proud of the relationship that I have with my children and my family. They made me who I am today. Pink is my favorite color. I like all kinds of music, except perhaps rap. I am a rabid NPR listener and love my doggie. I work full time, am a semi-vegetarian, a voracious reader and a wanna be writer. Doing all that I do in the beautiful South Florida sunshine.

Weigh In Day

Is Thursdays for me. I changed it. I don't know why, a couple of weeks ago. And I am down to 148.5, which is down about 2 lbs from last time. Which makes me happy. And I know I have been exactly great this week with my eating but I have managed to keep the binge monster mostly at bay. I have been on the verge, and have been snacky, but haven't gotten to a full fledged binge.

Yesterday was an ok day eating wise. I had oatmeal with a banana for breakfast. I have pictures, but I didn't load them yet and I have to make this a quick post so I don't have time to post them.

The important thing that happened yesterday was my urge to snack even though I realized I was NOT hungry in the afternoon. I made a cup of tea instead and then go so busy at work that I didn't even have time to drink it. Which is pretty funny, considering I was moments before wanting to break into my snack stash. 

I ran 3 miles last night which felt great.  I also had some so-called friends on Facebook attack me  like we were high school girls. It was ridiculous, honestly. Needless to say they have been deleted. My DBF was quite appalled as well, but he's a guy and doesn't understand what these peoples problems are. I do, simply they are jealous. Of what, I'm not quite sure, but there are some serious issues there. However, I am not really friends with them, so I care not. 

Today is my middle child's birthday so I will be taking him out to eat. I will probably be having a salad, if I stay strong.  Maybe that isn't the right mentality, but I don't what the right one would be so I'm going with what I know, even though it hasn't always worked out so well for me.

It's coffee time for me and got to get running for work. I've got some great leftovers for lunch, hopefully I'll have a chance to post the pictures tonight.

When I am eating out, the thought process I *try* to use is this:

Will *insert food choice here* help my goals of weight loss or will they hinder my goals of weight loss? I try hard not to think of these things as good or bad but reframing things to keeps your goals in mind is useful to me...most of the time.

that's a great way to phrase it!

I'm trying to not be so negative about myself. And not thinking of things in terms of good or bad is a good start.
