Baking for Thanksgiving

Saturday, November 21, 2009

I worked out high intensity one hour then came home, baked a generous fish fillet for lunch with a large tossed salad then began my baking. I am not substituting. My family wants the real McCoy. So I am using strategies to keep myself in check: I will do an extra exercise session today to continue to curb my appetite. That really works! All the goodies are going in the freezer--tightly wrapped. I am currently baking cookies and pecan pie.


New Beginnings...

Saturday, November 21, 2009

This is my very first blog ever anywhere on the internet. We will see how it empowers me (insert evil laugh here).
I did a full 60 minutes of cardio this morning keeping above 85% of my maximum heart rate for 80% of the time. It felt great afterwards! I was making amends...
I royally screwed up my diet the last 3 days. I took my Ohio State girls to Schmidt's in German Village during the accordion playing and we all three ordered desserts and shared. It was a planned indulgence but nevertheless it threw me off psychologically. I felt I abandoned my new commitment. I need to learn to manage these normal life events without punishing myself afterward. So today, the workout got me back on track. It suppressed my appetite for lunch but I will still eat a 300 calorie lunch with the easy bean mix recipe I prepared last week and put in the freezer.
