SCC WEEK 1 link up

247 ( - 2 lbs )

Was less coffee more tea. I accomplished only adding tea but I have only 2 cups of coffee. I need to limit my splenda. Seems to make me bloat. If I add more coffee it is just 1 homemade frappe we got the magic bullet for 5 bucks new on auction. Reviewing it that is about all is good 4. Chopping onions is more like puree and salsa too comes out like sauce.

Rode my beach cruiser twice 30 minutes. Walk a mile and a half during the week Taking the kids to school. I've been very energetic Applying it to household chores And chasing after my grandbabies.

Have not been using my fitness pal effectively. Yes I have been conscious of what I have been eating, but I know that there are things that add up.

I baked a bunch of cookies for the family. As I watched the joy the children eating cookies and how the 19 month old baby dunks pretty good, I had a revelation of sorts. Food is not the enemy. Abuse is. There are so many wonderful foods that if you are on a diet are like Satan, but over eating habits put me in FAT HELL.  Sitting on my butt makes me stay there.  The problem is ME. 

When Mint Oreos came out, who ate the whole package after work while playing Fable on Xbox?  Dunking them in hot coffee for a sec to make it melts minty in my mouth? ME!

After Jared became the poster weight loss guy for Subway, who was hell bent eating double meat double cheese extra mayo foot longs chased with chugging either beer or a two liter Pepsi ? ME.

Who saw ALL YOU CAN EAT BUFFET literally? ME.

My conclusion was you can eat many things just not all of it at once.

The best thing about starting to diet is the accountability. I'm thinking before I'm shoving.  If I want to shove I choose better food. And I cant be mad everybody who can eat cheesecake.

Bloggie love! Good week!


  1. It sounds like you had an overall good week-hope this one is even better!

  2. I'm glad it was a good week for you. I think things will really get rolling for all of us now that we are settled in. :)

  3. Another good week. Love it. I think you are right.. Food is not the enemy. I think my food issues are the addiction in my family tree and I will always have to work to fight it. PLus heck food tastes great. Have another great week.

  4. "Food is not the enemy. Abuse is."

    Spot on. That's the moral of all of this. One of the hardest (but most valuable) lessons to learn on this journey!

  5. YAY for you on the loss this week!! Keep it up :)

  6. Sounds like you have had some revelations this week! When I did that, it made all the difference! Excellent!

  7. Sounds like you are on the right path forward... have a great week!

  8. Ah, a breakthrough moment, I LOVE those.. youre so right though. I cant be mad at my coworkers who eat 2-3 cookies a day at our bakery and remain super skinny.. I can secretly hate them but i cant be mad lol Good luck with this week, and great job for keeping up with the exercise front! <3

  9. Well said:-) It is possible to have some of the so called bad stuff, if you can have it in moderation. If you can't then stay away from it until you are able to do so and if that time never comes then it's best to just say no... that's my motto and I'm sticking to it:-)

  10. Hope your week is going well....if's a hope that it goes better.
