I weighed in last night and was UP another .2. Now I know I’m not the most conscientious eater. I do eat things that I “shouldn’t eat”. I eat salt on my pasta. I eat chocolate (love my chocolate!!). I eat cakes and cookies upon occasion too.
So when I weighed in and it was up, I went nuts. I’ve been faithfully documenting my food intake. I’m NOT hiding it. I don’t use the eTools that I’m paying for, but I use MFP and I’m USING IT!! I’ve checked in and logged my food daily for a month. What I’m seeing and my consciences (you know who you are!!) are seeing is that I eat too much sodium. Processed food, crap like that. My dear friend, S, recommended I make my own goodies. She said she knows people who do and they’re happy and not whining about their weight like I am. (She never said I was whining, I did, because I am.)
MFP is a habit I’m not likely to break now that I’ve been doing it for over a month. I need to add in eTools now and do that religiously. I need to get in those important things like oils (olive, canola, something–in my oatmeal? Ummmmm. I’ll think about that!! You’re suggesting that to a hard headed mule, I’ll have you know!!) and my multivitamins in. I carry them to work, but what’s the point of that if you don’t take them?
The point of this blog isn’t to sit and say “oh poor me, I’m not losing weight, feel sorry for me.” It’s to say, “Okay, you aren’t eating healthy foods, you need more veggies (need a tracker for that, thank you MFP!!) and you need to keep exercising.” I *have* added exercise into my daily regime. I have a new Beachbody DVD that I love because it’s kickboxing and is lots of fun! In fact, I didn’t do it yesterday, so I get to do it today.
I asked someone if I could go walk with her on Sunday. 7 1/2 miles.. I think that makes part of the 5k’s you wanted me to walk in 2 weeks, K. I’ll do it!!
So check with me in a couple of days and see if I’m actually walking the walk. I need accountability and I need a quick shove in the back.
