My weekend...

Sunday, May 17, 2009

My weekends are my biggest downfall..its hard they (my family) after a week of work and studying for test we like to go out and relax bye eating out..they try their best for us to go to places where I can eat healthy food but still its hard..
Saturday we went to Outback I behaved so of good had a salad but I goofed on the dressinf (blue cheese) had my salmon with veggies and water, also had one slicepumpernickle bread no dessert...then today we went to this new chicken place in my neighborhood it was roasted with salad oil and vinegar but then they ordered a spanish custard (flan) one with four spoons ... since its easrly in the day plan on eating a fruit salad later... I do good during the week to think that working in a kitchen I would slip there but amazingly I don't its the weekend that its a killer..we did manager to do something different we went to the park and walked around as well as played some kickball..I tended my garden also at home in my backyard..I am trying not to get myself down I just have to talk myself into saying that that is life one must take one day at a time.. must be gratfull that at least my family want to be with me that they help me the best they can..they cheered me when I told them I losted this week 2 pounds.. its a start.. must be positve tomorrow is another better day..I am learning to pep talk to myself... to keep a positive attitude...

Trying to get the hang of things..

Wednesday, May 13, 2009

It is not easy trying to get the hang of things especially when my health is the one thing that needs improvement .. but so far little by little changing here and there is doing okay.. I just hope that I can stick with it that is where I have problems I get bored and drop everything and go back to my old ways of doing things..well so far I have changed the way I cook no more frying everything is healthy..I have found my utencils that are for measuring I dusted them off and put them where I can see them on top of counter..Made this week some pretty amazing dinner this week.I went to my spark recipe and pulled out a delish parmesean fish on the oven my family loved it.. I was so proud of myself I even thought you know I can do not get me wrong I do have a lot of work to be done like one this program its telling me that I am low on carbs that I need to pick it up and other things too but I am working on it...
On me exercise for this week I am doing 20 of cardio I will pick it up nest week.I started some mini challenges wow I never thought of getting thru with a challenge..everyday they sent me a challenge to do.. it keeps my motivated on the exercise... I already told my husband that this weekend we are gonna get into the moving around stuff go to the park walk.. oh and I almost forgot I played kickball with my youngest son he enjoyed it I huffed and puffed but I enjoyed it.. I know that in time I will not huff and puff...
Well with all these new stuff I am learning the most important thing that I am learning is that I must take it one day at a time baby steps to the new me.. I have alot to learn about me for me to enjoy life to the fullest for me and nobody else.. sounds selfish but I think its the only way that I can be healthy again...

    Yep. I'll second Littlemamma. If you read any of my blogs - you'll see it took a heart attack for my boyfriend. Make yourself a priority!!! If you don't care enough to, who will? Really, it's just about being the healthiest that you can be, and little ones are such an inspiration!

Best wishes - you can do it! emoticon

fell off the wagon..

Monday, May 11, 2009

It is not easy staying on the wagon..I have a family that does not eat healthy.. I tell them I must lose the weight or I will feel terrible and sick.. I am about 80 pound or so overweight.. I have tried everything nothing seem to stick in I lose a little than I go back to the usual..I am tired of this yo yo.. want to see result but happy to stick with it like really make it a life style ... but for some reason I get bored and fall off the wagon.. I need help .. but not momentarly help need life long help...I just found out that my husband has gout...I tell him if he would just lose the weight it will go away...
Yesterday we started to walk we went to the mall and walked about a 2 .5 miles that was good for the first day of exercise.. I wanted to not lay around and watch a movie.. I even got my boys involved..we were tired and sore but we sure made our exercise for the day...hope that we do this kind of stuff more often... Barbie

  My case is different, my husband is very thin and can eat whatever he wants so in the beginning it was tough to see him eating all the foods I can't eat. But it doesn't bother me that much anymore and a lot of times my husband will eat the healthy stuff with me.

Just remember that when you start to get discouraged how beautiful and healthy you'll be when you meet some of your goals. Maybe you will even inspire the rest of your family to make the change. But for now do what makes you feel good even if its tough. You'll find as time goes by that you won't have cravings for fatty foods, etc as much and when you get more used to working out you'll be surprised at how quickly your stamina will increase.
When I first started cycling over a year ago just riding 10 miles seemed like a lot to me. Now anything under 30 miles seems like a breeze. ;]

    I know how you feel...My husband exercises with me now...But he still doesn't eat the "right" foods lol He's actually lost weight and so have I...So although we are sticklers to eating what he calls rabbit food all day we are doing good...I made a few adjustments though...I drink water especially when going out to dinner/i've added green tea/limit the carbs and no beef/pork! I got him and the kids hooked on turkey burgers! wow! Also, portion control will help out as well....slow n steady ...if we dont win the race we sure will be looking good when we arrive LOL
