Quick check in

I have made Mondays as my weigh in days because the weekends are always the worst time for me. This last week has been a down week because I always overeat before my Aunt Flo arrives. I know it is not excuse and I need to change my habits. I gained 6# this week. Part of the reason was salty food and wine coolers. I also am starting to feel bloated which doesn't help at all.

Today, I got back on track. I ate really well and did some exercises. I did 30mins on my elliptical machine. I also walked my daughter to school in 90 degree weather. Tonight I walk 2000 steps. Also did some strength training for full body. I plan on trying to at least get in 30mins of Cardio and 2000 steps. Monday, Wednesday and Friday I will do some strength training.

Over all it was a good day.

I'm still here.

I know it has been a couple of days since I have posted anything but I'm still here.  I have been working on figuring out the best way for me to lose the weight I need to be healthy.  I know I need to start by taking little baby steps!  I can't my habits overnight even through I wish I could!!! DON'T WE ALL WISH! I have to remember that the gaining weight is a lot easier than loosing it. 

One of the first goals I have decided I need to do is eat more fruits and veggies.  This is not an easy task for me because there are not a lot veggie I like.  I like corn, green beans, potatoes, tomatoes, lettuce, carrots w/dip, cauliflower w/dip and peas.  I like bananas, strawberries, watermelon, oranges, pineapple and some apples. With money being tight it is hard to get some of the fruits because they are little more spendy. With a family of six money for groceries doesn't go very far. I'm sure a lot of people out there can relate this problem.

Another goal I need to work on is believing in myself.  I have a lot of self doubt!!! I find it hard to believe I will succeed in my goals.  Most of my life I have had depression and a low self esteem. I will be working very hard at this because if I can believe in myself than I will not succeed.

Kids are running around and making a bigger mess so I will be getting some exercises in today.

Starting all over again.

I have come back here because I need to keep track on my feeling and my eating.  I have always been an emotional and over eater. I want to change my life and my way of eating.  I need to stop listening to the little voice in my head.  It keeps telling me to give in to temptations and I can just start all over again tomorrow.  I keep giving into it day after day which needs to be stoped.  Also I need to realize when I'm satisfied so I don't overeat until I hurt.
