What About ME?

Thursday, May 19, 2011

It occurred to me yesterday as I called to make a dental appointment for DS1 that it's been quite a while since I've seen the dentist, myself. I went to look it up...



Yup. Near as I can tell, the last time I saw the dentist was in October of 2009. Really?! Now, you have to understand that I've always gone to the dentist every six months for a cleaning and checkup. So, how is it that I haven't been since October 2009?

Easy: I'm a mom.



My family switched dentists a while back (apparently, shortly after October 2009). My boys all have dental issues, so I spent a lot of time finding a new dentist and then getting them in to SEE the dentist, and then back again to get their many dental issues resolved.

In all my efforts to make sure that my boys were taken care of, I forgot to take care of ME.

Sadly, this is an all-too-common story for women. Our nurturing nature causes us to take care of everyone around us, while overlooking our own needs. As a result, we often wind up sick, exhausted, overweight and dentally neglected.



How do we find a balance that allows us to care for others while simultaneously caring for ourselves?

Overall, I've managed pretty well. I get to my internist and ob-gyn annually. Have my mammo done every year around my birthday. More recently, I've been eating right and exercising daily. Just overlooked that little dental thing... subliminal avoidance, perhaps?
emoticon

Summer is fast approaching, which means the boys will soon be demanding more of my attention. My workouts will be interrupted, and my healthy meal plans often thwarted. It will be up to me to make ME a priority, so that I can continue to enjoy the success that's been mine ever since joining SP 2 months ago.

Putting action to that positive thought, I went to the dentist today. Came home with a clean bill of dental health, too, in spite of my long absence from the dental chair! Before my appointment, I got in 50 minutes of cardio and another 30 of ST. And, I went to lunch with a girlfriend at a local tea room that I've always wanted to visit; we've made a date to go to a resale shop together next week to find some new clothes to fit our shrinking bodies.
emoticon


I think I've got this balancing thing pretty well figured out. For today, anyway...

Rockin' That Dress in the Back of My Closet! (with pic!)

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

OK, if you didn't read yesterday's blog entry, you might want to check it out first for some context.

For those of you who DID read it, the title of today's blog tells you how things turned out.

Yes, I wriggled my jiggle into that dress, and I think I pretty much rocked it!



The last time I wore this dress was in the summer of 2005 or 2006. I love it's cheerful color and lily-of-the-valley print (my birth flower!), so it was one of the few garments I held onto as my weight crept slowly upwards. Once I committed to losing weight with the help of SP, I looked forward to the day when I would be able to wear it again; didn't think that would be for at least another month, so it felt really good to be able to wear it to the banquet last night. And, a month from now, it'll feel even better when I can wear it without the aid of space-age undergarments!
emoticon

As for that awards banquet last night, well, let's just say that $30 was about $29 more than the fat-and-sodium-laden meal was worth. Limp salad, stale dinner roll, chicken breast hidden under congealed cheese and soggy tortilla chips, mexicorn dripping in grease...the only thing remotely edible was the dessert, which I chose to enjoy without guilt!

It was great to see my DS2 being honored for winning a gold medal at the state-level Visual Arts Scholastic Event competition. Next time, though, I think I'll eat BEFORE the banquet! And, you can bet I'll be rockin' an even smaller dress, at my goal weight and arms nicely toned.

'Cuz, DS2 isn't the only one accomplishing great things!!

The Dress in the Back of My Closet

Tuesday, May 17, 2011

We all have one: that favorite dress or other piece of clothing that taunts us from the back of the closet. "If only you weren't so pudgy," it calls out mockingly, "you could wear ME to that banquet tonight! I'd be PERFECT!"

Yes, you would be. But, alas! In spite of my progress in recent months, The Dress is still out of reach. Tantalizingly so -- I can get it on now, and I can even zip it, but I need to drop another 5 pounds or so before it will fit me properly.

Which leaves me in a real pickle. Because, DS2 is receiving an award at an academic banquet tonight, and I don't have a THING to wear!! Everything is either too big, or too small, or not right for the occasion.

Motivation to get to my goal weight, and fast:


I'm not quite there yet.

I received a couple of gift certificates to my favorite boutique for my birthday, so I ran up there in hopes of finding something new to wear. I found The Perfect Dress...perfect, that is, except for the way it clinged (clung? clang? STUCK?) to every roll on my Work-In Progress body. The sweet saleslady had to agree that even Spanx wouldn't be enough to make this dress work in time for tonight.

I fought down the temptation to buy it anyway, "for later". FOCUS!!

Found another dress that could have worked, but then I saw the price tag. $98 for a dress that I only kinda-sorta like, and probably won't have a lot of occasion to wear, doesn't make sense to me. I passed.

I came home with a top that MIGHT work with a skirt in my closet that now fits (it didn't, a couple of weeks ago!), but it's a little too heavy for the seasonably warm temps here in Houston. Stopped at a consignment shop across from the boutique in hopes of finding something else, but totally struck out there.

So, here's my plan: I'm going to wriggle my jiggle into some Spanx, and see how The Dress in the Back of My Closet fits with that high-tech elasticized bit of encouragement. With any luck, it'll work, and I can strut my new, slimmer stuff tonight in my hot Coach mules that I bought just for That Dress that I only got to wear once before my expansion began.

If it doesn't work, I'll go for the new top (that hopefully works with the skirt!), and try not to drip puddles of "glow" onto my dinner plate. Who knows? Maybe they'll have the A/C cranked up really high and I'll be thankful for the warm top!

Bottom line (no pun intended): I'm finding myself in a wardrobe dilemma tonight because I've lost over 10 pounds and so nothing fits.

And that's a really great dilemma to have.

    Finally got here to read your blog...love the wiggle and jiggle...because who on Spark hasn't had to wiggle and jiggle. It is a marvelous affirmation to fit into something that was too small, too tight, or you couldn't even get it up over the hips.
Smile on...Spark Friend!

"150 by 50", and Today I'm 50...Did I Make It?

Monday, May 16, 2011

Today is my 50th birthday. Wow. I don't FEEL 50...more like,



emoticon

Honestly, I feel FABULOUS!!!



I mean, really....think about where I was when I joined SP exactly 2 months ago: technically "obese" by my BMI ('tho I hid it pretty well most of the time), my back causing me so much pain that there were days when it was hard to even walk, my waist as big as my hips USED to be...I was a mess!



And look at where I am today: "overweight", and getting VERY close to a "normal" BMI, my back only occasionally acting up a bit (and usually after I've misbehaved, working out too hard!), my waist about 4 inches smaller...I'm looking and feeling GREAT!!



So, about that goal.... yeah, I know that's the real reason you're reading my blog today. You've been hearing about my "Big Goal" of being "150 by 50" for two months now, and even though you know it was a long shot for me to reach it, you're still wondering..."Did she make it?".

And the scale said...

151.8!!

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Yes, I'm partying, even though I didn't meet my goal. And why shouldn't I? Look at all I've accomplished in 2 short months!!! Forget what the scale says -- that's just a number. What REALLY matters is that I've CHANGED MY LIFESTYLE!! I exercise every day (and ENJOY it!), eat a minimum of 5 freggies a day (and often much more!), wear a size smaller than when I started (and now even those 12's are starting to sag a little!), and (I love this part) I can see MUSCLE DEFINITION in my arms!!!



OK, maybe not THAT much definition...but, I'm getting there!

And, get this: I did it with nothing more than daily walking, light strength-training on a stability ball (and I only started that a couple of weeks ago!), and clean eating. No expensive gym, no special "diet plan" aside from keeping calories, carbs, fats & proteins in balance (with the help of SP's nutritional tracker, which I fill in EVERY SINGLE DAY!), no personal trainer.

Just a positive attitude, unshakeable commitment, and a sense of humor (because, let's face it, you've gotta laugh sometimes or you're just gonna cry!).

Oh, and SparkPeople. I couldn't have done this without my SparkPeople! The tools, the training, and, most important of all, the support of all those wonderful people on SP who have chosen to support and encourage me as my SparkFriends (especially my BLC-16 Pixies -- love you, Pixies!!!). I love my SparkPeople, and I love my SparkFriends!

emoticon emoticon emoticon

My official weigh-in day is Wednesdays, and by next week I expect to be under 150. After that, my next goal is to have a normal BMI, which means getting my weight down to 145. I should be able to do that by June 15, given my historical weight-loss average of about 1.25 lbs/week. That would be a day short of my 3rd SP anniversary, an 18-lb loss since joining SP, and only 10 lbs shy of my final goal.



See you back here in a month!!!

Pumpkin Pancakes and Cooking without Coffee

Sunday, May 15, 2011

It's Sunday, so I thought I'd make a special treat for my boys: Chef Meg's Whole Wheat Pumpkin Spice Pancakes. Yum!
emoticon

So, I pull up the recipe on my laptop and get to work. No whole wheat pastry flour, so I sift the all-purpose flour twice. I start pulling out ingredients from the cupboard, measuring and dumping into the bowl as I go.

Oops. There was a reason those 3 egg whites were listed separately from the egg yolk... I was supposed to whip them up 'til fluffy and THEN add them to the rest. Oh, well...guess my pancakes just won't be quite as light and fluffy as Chef Meg's. Moving on...

Oops. The 2 cups of milk I just added was apparently 2%, not the 1% that we usually have on hand (the recipe calls for skim, of course). I had done my grocery shopping at a different store this past week, and didn't notice that THEIR blue label indicates a different fat level from the blue-labeled milk at my regular store. Oh, well...guess my pancakes will be a little heavier in fat & calories than Chef Meg's. Moving on....

I dutifully pour the batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto my griddle. Seems awfully thin...probably because I neglected to whip those egg whites. I plop 2 of them onto a plate, add a tablespoon of REAL maple syrup ('cuz that's the ONLY way to go!), and....oops. Just noticed the can of pumpkin sitting on the counter, untouched.

I forgot to add the pumpkin to my pumpkin pancakes.
OOPS!!! emoticon

So glad the boys are all still sleeping, and not in the kitchen to witness this fiasco.

I toss the first 2 pancakes, add the pumpkin to the batter (which now has a consistency more, well, CONSISTENT with normal pancake batter!). Plop 2 on my plate, add a tablespoon of REAL maple syrup ('cuz that's still the only way to go!), and...DEEEEEE-licious!!
emoticon

Moral of the story: Don't ever, EVER cook before you've had your morning cup of coffee! emoticon


Tomorrow's the Big Goal day, my 50th birthday. I still have 2.4 pounds to lose to meet that 150 goal. Barring a miracle, I'm not going to make it. Nevertheless, I'm committing to getting in 100 fitness minutes today and staying at the low end of my calorie range (2% milk pancakes with real maple syrup notwithstanding), starting with a 60-minute walk.
Right after I finish a cup of coffee. emoticon
