went to the city today (walked there and back)

fedlt great in my new clothes initially. feeling slim and glam..

started to feel heavy in my body (weird!!)

had a cappucino to share with partner.

he had fry up at local cafe. I didnt order anything cos i didnt want to eat the shite.

He ate fried eggs saussage and chips (greasy) Found myself eating some of his chips with mustard and half a piece of toast with 1 slice of saussage... :oops:

Felt so bad.. got really upset about it. started to get reall negative thoughts, felt really fat and huge. Thinking im so top heavy and fat stomach, couldnt get away from myself. Horrible feeling.

Once i got home feeling a bit better. still feeling not great. Reason being is that I still think im slim!! somewhere in my subconscious mind, im thin. but looked big in the windows and feeling hot and heavy.

Had to stay STOP to myself with these thoughts. Feel almost like PMS but no-where near that time of month.

Had a cry. got over it.

Drank more water. for tea had a egg sandwich with mustard.

cant imagine being even bigger than this before.

Tomorrow will have to do exercise. Drink more water.

get a better attitude. Today was horrible when it should have been nice.

I often find myself doing the same thing - because I was slim until my late twenties, I still mentally see myself as thin but then I catch a glimpse of myself in a shop window and it's like "whoah!" And I think when I look in the mirror, I mask 'the bad stuff' and don't really see it. It's only when it catches me unaware that realise how chubby I actually am.

I think treadmills are fairly expensive to rent and work out to be about the same as a gym membership - though heaps more convenient!

Hang in there mimosa. Those 5kg you've lost aren't coming back!!! You CAN do this :)
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

Good on you for not having your chocolate and vodka last night. To rent a treadmill would cost around $20- 30 per week.

How are you feeling this morning??

Try not to get too down about having slip ups, we all have them on our journeys so the most important thing to rememeber is a slip isnt the end. Like you said, its just a stumble on the path!

Water and soup are great ideas for knocking out the yukies and getting back on track :wink:

progress

Postby mimosa8 » Sun Dec 16, 2007 2:15 am

been doing the exercise program for body for life. one day upper body workout then the next day cardio and then the next day lower and the next cardio and repeat it. sunday free days.

doing well with cals but last few days had some choc and today had cheeseburger and nibbles at friends christmas party. owh well..

prob 3000 cals both days.

wont worry too much about it though, just do some exercise tomorrow and count the cals. under 1500 is the aim for tomorrow.

hope you are all doing well.

its so hard sometimes not to give in on tempations. other times its easy. I think PMS can affect it all too.

still waiting for my vibration toning machine. will keep posted.

Postby mimosa8 » Sun Dec 16, 2007 11:19 am

hmmm feeling the effects today.


must be hard being pregnant with cravings and hormones.

already ate 4 lollies when i got up.. not a great start..


PULL YOURSELF TOGETHER..

weetbix would have been nicer.

Just on another note.. has anyone read the book " the rules"
thinking of implementing it.

christmas shopping today so exercise equals walking around the shops. might have sushi and cappucino from GJ.

Hi Mimosa. I haven't read the book 'The Rules' - what's it about? Is it an approach to healthy living???

I've got the Body for Life book sitting on my shelf somewhere. Are you doing the full program or just using their exercise guides?

I had really bad sugar cravings last week. It was obscene. It was TTOTM too, but I know I shouldn't use it as an excuse to indulge. It's just so hard when you work in a chocolate shop!!! :P

Good luck christmas shopping. I haven't started (except for my parents - I bought them tickets online for a musical)... I figure I'll hit the shopping centre early one morning this week and get it all out of the way in one clean sweep - i hope!
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

im stillcraving sugar really bad today . ate 6 choc almonds in the last 15 mins (sneaked them) thats really bad i know!!

i had omelette for dinner just 20 mins ago so hmmm.... :oops:

i am going to reseal the packet in the hope not to eat them anymore!! i feel sick anyway.

*but kept eating them lol*

how are you doing today? are you sticking to it.

The rules is a relationship guide.
I am doing the exercise bit cos dont have the book for the foods. (body for life) is it a great read?
