Today was a pretty average day but when I got home, My Bodybugg had finally arrived! I have waited and waited! I think it took a little while to get through customs here. I not only tell my clients they should know how many calories are in the food they are eating, but EXACTLY how much they are burning! The only tool I have found so far that helps me know exactly is the Wii EA Active 2 program and Bodybugg. What people think they burn and what they actually burn is REALLY different! Even on SP I think the calories aren't very accurate. Don't get me wrong...all movement is FABULOUS! I am a TYPE A personality and I don't want to leave things to chance for being lazy and "winging it". YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR SUCCESS!!! So...arm yourself with the best tools you can. Bodybugg seems logical to me...and plain in your face numbers that either show why you haven't or have lost weight....OR to motivate you to "get your burn" as they say on The Biggest Loser! :) I may walk extra flights of stairs on lunch or do extra cleaning, or walk further...etc. I love setting a goal and reaching it and that is what this is all about. I have heard mixed things about it. I don't really do pedometers...I hear alot of people say it's a glorified pedometer, but I do karate, gym, walking, weights, etc.....I could care less about "steps"...I want numbers in vs numbers out. I am VERY VERY excited. I know I am still not allowed to work out like my normal self, but it'll make me move more I'm sure. I will keep you posted.
This weekend I started taking pics for my book/tool...it will be about weight loss, nutrition, and making it simple...but I tried some new recipes and took pics...and posted calories on my Facebook page. I still need to put them on my Weight loss Girl Patty Wunder FB page though...I love to freestyle cook and some things turn out REALLY pretty! :)
I may jot down my food here everyday now since I am tracking on paper and in Bodybugg (as of tomorrow) LOL
125g Lite Greek Yoghurt
50g Countdown Alpine Toasted Muesli
25g Chocolate Sculpt Protein Powder
1 cup Trim/Skim milk
2 slices Balance bread
1 TBS Lite Mayo
75g Tegel Smoked shaved Chicken
A salad with: 1/2 avocado, 1/2 red bell bepper, 1/2 yellow bell pepper, 2 cups of mixed greens, sprouts, and a thin slice of red onion
Horley's Carbless Deluxe Raspberry Cupcake Protein Bar
Fry's Vegetarian Chicken Strips (100g)
4 cups of sauteed mushrooms
I ALWAYS drink 2+ liters of Alkaline water daily - I get it in by 4 PM before I leave work. I always take my vitamins and I always finish my day with a cup of green tea.
So...there's a glance at my Monday!
Off to take my face off and head towards the bedroom! Good night!

Just checking in to say hello and that I am still here. Since my surgery, I have had to get use to eating...basically all I ate for 3 weeks were saltine crackers and juice! That's all I really wanted :) And peppermint ice cream once in awhile!
This past week was my first day back to eating normal again. I did pretty good. :) Except sometimes I'm just not hungry. Like today! And I have found out that having my gallbladder out has been positive in other ways. I think something was wrong with me for a long time and now, I seem "normal". I even ate something "fatty" this week to see if it would make me instantly run to the toilet like everyone warns, but NO! :) However...after really healthy food I do and I am heading to the toilet more often during the day which is a great thing! This might be too much info for you, but I have had runny poo for as long as I can remember and since they removed my gallbladder 3 weeks ago and my appendix 4 months ago, I don't have this problem anymore and it's really cool! :) LOL
I have also discovered that as much as I preach to people to know what they are eating and to know calories, when I watch the Biggest Loser they KNOW their calories in food. Sparkpeople does all the work for you...I don't actually remember the calories and stuff after I enter it in. So this week I have been using TBL food journal and doing it all by hand and with a calculator. It's alot harder and takes longer, but I know I am someone that when I write something down a couple of times, I will remember it and I can easily look back from previous days...etc. So...I'm giving it a whirl and so far it's been really good.
It's been 1 year since the big Quake here in Christchurch and 10 years since 9/11. I hope everyone has a great day and takes time to tell people you love them and are grateful for what you have. Amazing what can happen in 1 day. :)
Have a great week!

Almost 4 months ago to the day I had my appendix removed. This week I had my gallbladder removed. It's truly trying my patience and irritating me. I have so much I need to accomplish and I keep getting sidetracked. Grrr...
Anyway, that's why I haven't been around much...but hope to get back on the wagon soon. Right now I am taking pain meds and laxatives, so not really think it'll matter. I'll just worry about mending and getting back on track. I am starting to feel better and hope to go to work Monday. :) So my goal is to start back on plan then...I am trying to eat healthy, I'm just eating more carbs (saltine crackers) every 4 hours with my meds so they kick in. Here's a pic of my stones they found. The NZ 10 cent piece is to give you a size comparison...like a nickel. :)
See you all soon! Have a great week! xoxoxox
