Keeping It Real: Tues-Fri - Sept. 6-9, 2011

Tuesday - Friday 
9/6/11 - 9/9/11
Each of the past four days have been an awesome education of what is healthy and what is not.  It has been about choices.  I have stuck to healthy phase 1 food choices but I have failed at eating three meals and three snacks.  I have no routine for life and will work on the final ten days of my new way of living to find balance.  I have my days and nights mixed.  As I write this it is 6 am on Saturday and I have yet to turn in for the night - it is now morning - so I will lay down shortly and sleep for at least six hours. 

  • Continue to encourage my daughter by example - (she is on this healthy way of living with me)
  • Get to bed by 10 p.m. each night & Rise at 6 a.m. each morning
  • Meet SBD Guidelines of 3 meals & 3 snacks while eating from the Phase 1 Food List.

Notes for Tuesday, 9/6/11:
Walk,Walk, Walk, Sweat, Sweat, Sweat. Approx. 30 minutes walked in 90 minutes spent at my son's open house tonight. Up stairs, down stairs, across campus and then back across the campus at Chaparral High School. Profusely sweating, sick, low back pain, felt like I was going to pass out. I don't know what was happening to my body but it did not feel great. I managed to get thru the open house and met all the teachers but this is considered walking at a slow pace. I sweated!   :)   Kept to Phase 1 Food List - Just not the 3 meals/3 snacks today.  Even though I wasn't eating 3/3 I did not feel hungry.

Notes for Wednesday, 9/7/11:
Really need a routine. Kept to beachy foods.  Still need to eat 3 meals/3 snacks.  Even though I wasn't eating 3/3 I did not feel hungry.

Notes for Thursday, 9/8/11:
Days and nights are still mixed up.  Its 3 am and I am still wide awake. This effects my eating on the sb guidelines. Will work on beachy foods for remainder of the day. Ok so I ended up with 2 hours of sleep for Thursday. I'm exhausted tonight and ready to head to bed. It is 11:55pm. I had a really good sbd day. I only missed breakfast today so tomorrow I plan to eat according to the guidelines! Night all.
Notes for Friday, 9/9/11:
Slept and slept and slept. I was exhausted after only sleeping 2 hours the night before. Again, I keep telling myself a routine is the answer. Time to get on one!!! Kept to healthy SBD foods today. Today was Day 4, Ten more to go. Gonna try and stick to the SB Guidelines the next ten days. I still tend to not eat B/S/L/S/D/S-D instead it is more like L/S/D/S-D. I'm not hungry though.  Drinking lots of water.  I managed to eat 3 meals and 2 snacks today!  Better!
