Step Goal

Sunday, February 03, 2013

We had another day away today and all I wanted to do was crawl into bed when we came back home but after laying down for a few minutes, I forced myself up, grabbed a book and started walking. I knew it wasn't going to be a fast walk but I needed to get my steps in. I just feel better when I'm done. The book helps me not to think about the steps when I'm so tired. I hit my goal, barely, but I hit it.

Tomorrow, I'm setting my goal for 20,000 steps at least 3 times a week, with 15,000 steps per day on the other days. That should give me a bit more wiggle room as I slowly move up to 20,000 steps/day everyday.

Calorie Range Increase

Thursday, January 31, 2013

I checked my average calories burned for the last 4 weeks, averaged it out and entered it into My Fitness on SP. My calories were automatically readjusted and increased by about 600 calories/day!
That was pretty awesome. I'll give it a try for a couple of weeks and see how it goes. I may have to manually adjust it later but I want to try it at the recommended settings first.

No more 'No's'

Monday, January 28, 2013

I need to change my goals from yesterday. I gave myself too many 'No's'. I knew better than to do that but I did it anyway and today I was slightly crazy so halfway through the day I reminded myself that it's not about what I don't eat, it's just about staying in the calorie range and for me, eating at least 3 fruits and veggies every day.
Today ended up being better than I imagined after the pep talk. I hit my fruits and veggies, stayed in calorie range and hit 20,000 steps!

    I turned my "NO" in to "No thanks... I love myself and you are just not welcome in my life! Sorry!"

Exercise vs Food

Sunday, January 27, 2013

I feel like I'm doing pretty well hitting my exercise goals. Now I really need to tackle the one thing that I have the hardest time with - keeping my calories in range. I have been tracking all of my food and trying to hit at least 3 fruits and veggies per day but I very rarely stay within my calorie range. I know what I need to do to eat healthy and I know why I go over my calorie range. Now I just have to use what I know and find some will power to control the sweets I eat, mainly chocolate.

Here's my current plan, which I expect to have to modify more than once, but I'll keep trying until it works:

If I eat healthy all day (3-5 fruits and veggies, no getting overfull at any meal, no alcohol and no other sweets) then I will get 2 pieces of wonderfully awesome Lindt dark chocolate with sea salt before bed!

    Try a smoothie with fruits AND veggies in it! Add a little Stevia, and that makes it sweet and enjoyable! You can get your fruits and veggies in one drink!...Then...ON to the chocolate!

    I also love chocolate. One trick that I found is that chocolate covered strawberries are the height of luxury for me. I'm eating less chocolate, but feeling much more indulgent. Two birds, one stone.

Staying Positive

Saturday, January 26, 2013

Staying positive is probably the hardest part of staying healthy for me. I am very slow to lose and very quick to gain. (That works great with friends but not so well with weight!)

As long as I am positive about everything, then I am motivated to do what needs to be done, so even if I am feeling a little down, I will try to find something positive to write about in my blog. This is for me and it's one of the best tools I have. It's perfect because with a regular journal, there would be no one to read it and I might let something slide or just quit using it altogether. Writing something that other people can see helps with my accountability but I also like the fact that, if anyone does read it, it will only be one or two people and I always receive positive comments in response. That helps me remain positive and the cycle begins again!

This weekend I will focus on more fruits and veggies and having a wonderful weekend with an old friend.

  If you get down, look at what you have achieved. It has taken me 3 years to lose 23 pounds, so don't give up!
