Stripped day 3/HUNGRY

Wednesday, May 04, 2011

Yeah, I'm pretty much hungry all day long. I noticed it yesterday as well. Not the first day, but yesterday and today I have been hungry all day. It really makes it hard to push in my workouts. A bit frustrating and I am drinking 16-18cups of water too. Just keep doing what I'm supposed to be doing.

Today was a great day. No sunshine, but guess what? I WAS STILL SMILING! Seriously, that wouldn't have happened last week or so. The sun goes down so does my mood. I just feel so positive about everything now I'm boiling over!

So to continue my daily choice of appreciating a body part of mine, I chose for hte day my leg or legs! Yes, I have two. These are not usually my favorite body parts, but I was sitting at the table homeschooling my son with my legs crossed and looked down and thought "yup, that my favorite today". That was a nice feeling. So they are far from being where I want, but I"ll take it! So IT'S LEGS DAY! Yeah, and it was legs day for workouts too! THey are achy now about 3 hours after working them.


Couldn't decide what shot was better so I added them both! Stupid, I know!



So, many new recipes with my eating today. Seriously, I LIVED in the kitchen today. Between cutting up SO MANY FLIPPIN VEGGIES and making hummus for my hubby's lunch and preparing food for myself and such I want to be away, FAR AWAY from the kitchen! It's all good though. I do love making things myself.
For starters, here is my breakfast. It's called "take me on vacation oatmeal". It was very good. Basically it consisted of mango, oatmeal, oat bran, flax seed and coconut.



Snack which I had to eat a bit early due to my blood sugar dipping was strawberries and 2 hard boiled eggs.



Lunch was not what it was supposed to be. The first pic is of what it was supposed to be like and then my lazy version. I was tired and kind of done being in the kitchen at that point. It consisted of shrimp, avocado and tomato. I added in my evening apple instead of at bedtime as I needed the extra boost before my workout.





Afternoon snack was great and filling. I really needed that after my legs workout. A pear and can of tuna....yes A WHOLE FLIPPIN CAN! I think the heavens opened when I realized I could have a whole can!



OH and this is what my kids had for snack. Isn't it pretty?


Scheduled for dinner on the "menu" is bison tenderloin and veggies. I decided to use the elk steaks that my dad gave us. He shot an elk in Colorado and gave us some meat. So tender AND ORGANIC. So I kind of wanted to get hte blog done and just took a pic of it in the crockpot.



And my last precious meal of the day are a scattered handful of almonds.



And, I thought I would add how sweaty I got from my legs workout. Yeah, I got my HR HIGH too! Added bonus. I was seriously dripping on the floor. I am not sure if you can tell by the pic, but sweaty city! Woo wee!






Thanks for reading all!

    Thanks FITCHICK!

Yes and for the first time I am scrounging for containers. I got rid of most of them a few years back trying to rid my kitchen of plastic. Mason jars only work so far!

Yeah I guess that is kind of hard if you don't like oatmeal. Tosca SEEMS TO LOVE oatmeal. I personally do, but honestly I get just as much of a rise out of regular oatmeal and an half of a banana and some walnuts on top! Trying new things is important and I am trying that especially with the go green smoothie!

My kitchen has been trashed every day since 4/25 - ahhhhh we are sooooo worth it!

Day 2: Eat Clean Stripped/goals

Tuesday, May 03, 2011

So today as you read is day 2 of eat clean stripping. Gosh, I get a little thrill out of calling this stripping cause there is an inner stripper in me AND I am stripping my body of all the gunk and toxins in it! Well eating like this, which is super clean ...like none other, has been interesting.
#1. I HAD TO GIVE UP MY CREAMER IN MY COFFEE! Let me tell you, I have been using creamer in my coffee since I started drinking at 15. OH I have craved my usual cup of joe all day, but you know I didn't have it. I thought to myself "how can 1-2T. really effect my body" since I am supposed to not be having dairy. Then I realized, why am I doing this ? To cleanse my body and if I DID have that little bit of creamer it would be showing my inner weakness to lack of commitment and not JUST DOING WHAT'S RIGHT FOR MY BODY. The creamer was going to satisfy my "want" rather than my "need" for it. So nuff said, NO CREAMER. I am actually appreciating the black stuff just as black . Never thought that would happen. Yes there is a #2. Almost forgot after that "coffee-with-no-creamer" drama.
So, #2. Wow I am drinking a go green smoothie (which you will see in my pics)which I thought I COULD never drink. Gotta say the stuff is GOOD for you, but not quite pleasing to the pallet! Wowsa, I reluctantly drank 2/3 or a tad more of it. I figured if I drank the whole thing I would be on to my next meal! Not probably going to make that again, but I tried it and I know what to feed myself for a great cleanse. I'll give you the ingred. with the pic then you will get a better idea of what I'm talking about.
So, yes, i am making great choices by eliminating some habitual foods like truvia and half and half in my coffee. I have also noticed I go to grab things like just a jelly bean, 1 itty bitty one, andcatch myself and think "I don't need that and what am I doing that for?" Mindless eating. So who knows how much I normally do that which I didn't really think I did. My energy has been great as well, except for the occasional low blood sugar that creeps in and makes me feel like I need to hibernate like a bear. LOVELY. Just have to push through, but other than that....great energy. YEAH FOR ENERGY!

In regards to my goals, I am really pursuing them daily which you can see in my previous blog. I have actually scheduled time to work on them in my day as staying in the home and all the distractions will allow me to easily overlook finding the time. So I have scheduled time right after finishing up homeschooling and lunch for my mental awareness time. Ha...that's what I call it. Basically working on the negative self-talk and just evaluating my thoughts through journalizing and writing positives of myself and life. I am really liking this and I never thought I would really get much out of it. I, also, realized today that I have run my life for so long around weight loss and really where has it gotten me? Yup, still in the same boat. So, this mental awareness is going to be so great and I really look forward to the changes EVERYDAY! So, no more counting calories; no more working out even when I am tired as anything fitting in those extra workouts TO JUST BURN MORE CALORIES - enjoy exercise and how my body can push and be strong; no more stressing about having a treat or meal that is not so clean cause it will all balance out. The stressing is what pushes me into a bad place of thinking I failed and into binging or just overeating.
So there is already so much good happening over the 2 days that I have been more self-aware. I am really thankful.
So in regards to my other goals, I am right on track! Oh and I decided to pinpoint a body part I appreciate each day. This is what I am thankful for today:

Yes, the area where my clavicles lead into my shoulders. Can't wait to get that more defined!

Now onto what I ate today. I know you are DYING to see my "go-green smoothie". JK.

Breakfast:

Yes there is no pic. That's right I forgot to take a pic! Well basically close your eyes and use your imagination. I had 1/2c. dry oatmeal with water and cut up an apple in it with some cinnamon. I, also, had 4 scrambled egg whites and a cup of BLACK COFFEE! Oh yes, my lovely water.

Snack:





End result:

So what you see is basically too much kale, fresh parsley, wheat grass, pineapple (which you couldn't taste), ginger (yuck), lime, avocado, almond milk and a tad of protein powder. There you have it...it's as healthy as you can get and I APPRECIATE THAT.

Onto lunch:



Leek soup which was actually very good and some chicken breast

Snack: I didn't actually eat this much; just took a quick pic before measuring out.


raw cashews and some strawberries

Dinner:



This is swai fish with just a few spices I threw on it, steamed broccoli and about a 1/2c of brown rice.

Then for my last precious meal of the day, which I have noticed the past 2 nights I NEED. A scoop of whey protein in water (BORING) and a small apple. Wow, carbs before bed...that doesn't happen often for me.



So are you hungry yet?

    Another great dinner! Need to have fish next week. Also, have you thought about meditation? I have just started incorporating that into my day. 5mins is all i can do, and boy is that already a long time to train your mind not to wander. I have been using it to take charge of my negativity, anxiety, etc and re- train my mind. I basically devote 5 mins to picturing what I want. For me that is what I want to look like. But u could use it for any goal. My yoga teacher always says, "Where the mind goes, the body follows". :)

My May goals to create healthy habits...

Monday, May 02, 2011

I wrote these goals out last night and I feel so excited about achieving each and every one of them for this month. But it's not going to stop there. This is something for me to focus on to get started as a part of my regular everyday lifestyle not just something I let go on the weekends. At this point I really need this focus and commitment, because April was a very up and down month. I yo-yoed constantly and ended up gaining 2.5 lbs. So sad. I ended March so well and finished April terrible, but I feel more positive then ever in life.
Hey, did you notice how hypocritical I am to my Spark name. ? Yeah, it is still something I am working on and I will be for life. This past month was SO COMPLETELY UNBALANCED and I am reaping the consequences. That's okay, cause it forced me to deal with the changes that need to happen and should have happened years ago. The biggest thing keeping me from great health and looking lean is my mental imbalance- denial of facing the things that hold me back. One of my biggest goals is going to be setting aside 10-15 min everyday to write down the positives for each negative thing I feel. Jody shared a great site with me about all of this and I have to dive back into it to know exactly how to face this head on. So I am excited to see how much I will change by the end of May. How can I not when I am facing my biggest battle...my negative self talk....ME!

So, here are my goals:

1. Do Kyrs's Boston Booty Camp Booty moves to improve my butt big time. She has a 7 day plan to improve your butt. Also, there are 2 days she has you rest that "thang" so i will add 10-15 min. on those days to get in a little extra burn if need be.

2. Challenge myself once a week to push in my workouts beyond m y comfort zone. REally , really challenge myself.

3. Do yoga (Tuesday mornings) once a week as I have trouble making time for this. Sorry Kyra.

4. Try to push beyond just drinking a gallon a day.

5. Trying to eat 100% clean 7 days a week through starting and adopting the Eat Clean Stripped eating plan.

6. Work on my mental health of putting out negative self -talk. Write out the positives for every negative I think of. Do this at lunchtime to make sure I set time aside for it or I won't make time with how busy it is with the kids.

7. Do shoulder strengthening exercises for my injured shoulder daily.

So this is what I am going to be starting off as goals for now but to adopt as habits. So don't be afraid to push me and make sure I"m doing what I set out to do. I am doing this for myself and I have to be accountable to myself, but a push is ALWAYS helpful.

    Sounds like some great goals girl. Do share that website Jody mentioned, it sounds right up my alley and I'd love to see it. A lot of this lifestyle is being in a happy/positive state and sometimes that can be 1/2 the battle because we know life can be challenging. I swear I could've wrote a blog similar but I'm excited for May too!! We'll battle these weekend issues. One day at a time and PATIENCE!!!

    You can do this. I'm not obsessing over the whole health thing, but it's become very important and second nature. Eating clean has made the biggest difference since February. I transformed my butt (no it's not where I want it yet!) in 6 weeks, doing at home exercise. I have pictures on Facebook - Buster Fitness (almost named Balanced). It's an open page you don't have to "friend" me ;) Now no more negative talk/thinking. Set aside that 15 minutes you are talking about. You can be balanced. I pray every day to be somewhat balanced. Making the plan is a great step in the write direction and you've done that. I'm here if ya need me.

Saturday's Food Blog...the weekend dread

Saturday, April 30, 2011

Yeah that's right....the weekend dread of late! I have been struggling on my wkds and the food blogs have been helping. So here it's Saturday and I'm continuing with this food blog theme. Yes, it was a help today although I didn't stick to my plan for eating. I gave in to a tiny little REese's egg about the size of my thunmbnail, picked at some ice cream and had a few M & M's. So all in all not the best but I still stayed within my calories. The best thing is that it didn't get out of control or become an overindulgence binge. Just some bad choices and small bad choices. So victory? Yes and no. Yes, because it didn't turn into a binge and no due to having those not so good clean choices.
Had a nice afternoon as a family. We went walking in the woods down to the creek where the boys love to roam and just be boys. I added a few pics....well a few out of 45! ha ha. I thought I would spare you. The parent always gets a heck of alot more enjoyment out of the pics then other people. That's why you are the parent!
Workout was okay. My left shoulder which started giving me problems while doing P90x has been acting up big time to the point now that anytime I do a shoulder exercise my muscle fatigues quickly and is quite a bit of pain. I have to seriously start doing strengthening exercises for it or I'll be having surgery down the road. Darn rotator cuff! Oh and the endless knots in my back/shoulder muscles don't help at all. Anybody willing to give me a massage? JK. So only got in about 24 min. of my ST, but I am going to hit up the treadmill for a bit of an extra cal. burn and do some stretching tonight. I was going to do yoga but hte yoga dvd I have from P90x does so many (actually about 60 min. of downward dogs I know my shoulder won't be able to handle it. So I am just going to stretch all my muscle groups. Oh and I know you probably forgot but the color of the day is orange. So here is my orange colored shirt. It's okay don't feel bad. How were you supposed to know the color of the day. Quite random I suppose or just fun!



To the point I know....blah blah blah! So here is what I ate for the day.....

Breakfast. My usual as of the last 2 days....protein pancakes and my hubby was cooking up bacon so I broke down and had one peice.



Lunch: yup, you got it same as the 2 previous days...apple, tuna and celery



Snack: 3T. air-popped popcorn and 3 egg whites. I planned the popcorn on purpose because I knew the wkd munchies would be around the corner and popcorn was the perfect healthy option.



And these are my not so good choices....but I had to be honest and add them in!





And lastly my dinner. It was venison taco salad. Very yummy. Nice organic deer meat.



So here are some pics from out day. HOpe you all had a great day!



They're listening for deer. Um, good luck!!!

Food Blog w/ some pics of today...

Friday, April 29, 2011

So, I like doing this food blog thing. It's just a matter of remembering to take pics before I eat what I am showing you. It really reminds me of how beautiful food is and to enjoy it more for it's color, beauty, and value. Man, with kids, I scarf down food quite often, but try to remind myself not to. I guess EVERYTHING doesn't have to be on a schedule!
So, today I felt so great. The sun was shining all day. I was planning on going down the road to take my kids to the creek which I have done before. It's so serene there and the kids love playing in the water, but I do get a bit nervous. It's a bit remote and if the wrong kind of people go by it would be easy to take care of business. I was going to bring my hubby's 9mm instead of my little 32, but didn't feel the enjoyment of it knowing I would be looking over my shoulder more than enjoying out time together. So, I hope we can just go as a family Saturday. Much more relaxing. We just hung out and enjoyed being outside in my son's invention. Yeah, he tried to create a shrinking/growing machine. This is what he settled for since we had to discourage his thoughts from getting a clothes dryer. Yeah, my in-laws actually encouraged the thoughts so much they took him to the dump to find a broken down clothes dryer to bring home. THANKFULLY they didn't find one. NOthing like a dryer sitting out in the lawn. Love his little ideas, but glad we settled for this.





And ofcourse here is my little Owes (Owsie, Owsinator,etc...) picking flowers like always for me. He can't walk past one without picking it for me. Cutie pie!

Don' t you love his fanny pack. Yeah, my mother in-law found it for him and my kids wear it just so they can laugh at the name.

And here is just a pic of the three of us having fun!

Ofcourse Bjorn was being such a 6 year old all funny by not showing his face.

So, I guess we should get to the point. YES FOOD BLOG! So here are my eats for the day.
Breakfast: protein pancake made from 1/3c. 1% cott. cheese, 3 egg whites., and 1/4c. of steel cut oats. Topped it off with some unclean s.f. maple fake syrup and spray butter. I should have topped it with a tad of nat. pb, but I just needed that maple suryp fix on my pan cockles. Yeah that is the distorted way my bro and i call them. We pretty much distort every word into like a Mad Gab way (if you are familiar with the game you will know what I mean). Oh and ofcourse my coffee with 2T. creamer.



Today was a repeat of yesterdays lunch. It was 5 ou. apple with 1/2c. tuna in water (drained ofcourse) with 1T. canola oil mayo and a few celery sticks. Such a bright colorful lunch.



Snack: Oh so pretty. It was one scoop of Pure protein vanilla whey protein with 1 c. Almond milk unsweetened vanilla and 1c. triple mix berries. Yup and my afternoon cup of joe! Love my joe!



Then we move onto dinner. Almost a repeat of last night as well. Alot of times I eat a bit differently then my fam. They CAN'T eat chicken everynight unlike me. I am not a routine eater, but chicken I can. I like variety. It's the spice amongst others in my life. So, tonight was 4.5 ounces of chicken, 1/2 of a yellow bell pepper, 1/2.c green beans, and 114g sweet potato.



Then this evening a few hours before bed I will be having a cup of fage (have you tried saying this name? Funny. anyway....) that is plain , but I add one truvia packet and a dash of cinnamon. Yum. I am contemplating whether or not to have a shot of Bacardi Coconut Rum mixed in with Diet Fresca with a dash of lime. OH SO GOOD. It will be quite well under my cals, but alcohol is a depressant and I dont' need to be inhibiting my metabolism AT ALL! So we'll see.





So all in all a good day! Kept my paws of the candy! HAd a great functional cardio session today and added in 4 min of tabata. Woowee! That was good and then right into burpees, broad jumps and mountain climbers! HR HIGH LET ME TELL YA! Yup gonna get this fluff off! Just focusing on the clean eats this weekend and i will be good to go!

Thanks for reading and i hope you all have a great weekend!

    Thanks Ladies! My boys are picking up so much just from my lifestyle. My son sometimes asks if what he is eating is healthy or not well the not so obvious stuff. My other son the other week asked me when I got up early in the morning to exercise asked why daddy didn't do what I do. Interesting observation. Thanks for the encouragement though
