Tasteless Tuesday?

Well, I weighed myself this morning and had a nice surprise. ( Down by one pound.) Any loss I will gladly take. It's nice to see the scale moving down again!

What have I learned since yesterday?
  1. I learned that I need to weigh everyday so I'm not caught off guard when the scale starts showing bad choices that I've made.
  2. I learned that I don't know how to do moderation. I'm seem to be "an all or nothing kind of girl." Either I'm obsessive compulsive with weight issues filling up my whole life......or I forget about it totally and when stressed over-medicate with food. I'm sure there has to be a middle ground somewhere but so far I haven't found it.
  3. Since I know that about myself then the best course for me right now is to avoid my Red Flag foods or stay away from them totally. I can't even have weight watcher treats right now as I overeat them. I love the Snack Well cookie cakes at 1 point per cookie. I especially like the Chocolate Mint variety. I like them so much that I ate a whole box of them last weekend ( all 12 of them!) It tasted good at the time but now I'm into guilt and self-loathing (never a good combination!)
  4. I learned that I need to plan my meals and snacks and have them on hand. If I have to go on a hunt for something I will choose the course of least resistance and the most calories.
  5. I learned that I absolutely hate, loath, and despise all forms of exercise. I didn't get the name Lazy Daisy because of my boundless energy.
  6. I learned that I have to exercise.......it doesn't matter what I think about it....as Nike says, "Just Do It!" Time, distance, and finances are a challenge right now so I have to be creative and disciplined. (Moan, I hate that combination!)
  7. I learned that I need to be a "mermaid" as far as drinking water. (I just stoppped and ran and got a glass after writing that statement. ) According to most of of my" pounds to go" friends.....I need to be drinking alot more water. I guess that's how you get your exercise in for the day, by running back and forth to the toilet all day! I also read that by the time you feel thirsty that you are already dehydrated!
  8. I have discovered that I'm a "secret eater". I usually eat late at night when Mr. Wonderful is asleep. I know it's stupid but some how in my thinking....items eaten in secret don't count! When I tell myself I can eat nothing after 7 p.m. it seems to works. (Now if I just keep listening to myself!)
  9. Sleep is a wonderful thing. I like it.....I think I'll try to get more of it! Sleep deprivity leads to an increase in cortisol that leads to an increase in weight. (Great, now they tell me after working the night shift for 30 years!)
  10. I know what to do to make this change. I can do these things to change. I will do these things to bring about permanet change.
Plan of the Day: Repeat day one!

Testing to make sure this works.

love ya momma!

Love this Miss Daisy!!!

You go girl!

Yes, this is great! I'll be back...
