A good deal, for ur waistline AND wallet

Sunday, January 16, 2011

So I was grocery shopping the other day and saw the Lean Cuisine meals. Usually when the family gets frozen pizza for dinner I get my own Lean Cuisine pizza - filling and major portion control :o))) Go me!!! So I saw on the box that there is a 2011 Red Carpet Collection lunch bag give away.

Heres the low-dwn : if u buy 20 Lean Cuisine meals (excluding Market Creations line), u can go online and enter the code from each one into their website (after setting up an account of course). Then u place the order for one of the 4 bags (ave retail value at $15) and delivery 8 to 12 weeks. These codes have to be inputted and bag ordered online by midnight March 31, 2011.

I did the math and it comes out to 2 to 3 meals a week. Here in FL they are running a lil under $2 each. I love their food and its a great portion for lunch. Add a small salad to one of their pizzas and Mmmm a great meal!

Just thought Id pass on the awesome deal I found! Cant wait to get mine, even tho Im a SAHM and dont take my lunch to work :o)

u cant find what u r lookin for!!??? BOTH of my kids are napping and so I wanted to take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime event :o) and use a workout video. My Biggest Loser one, to be exact. Well I havent used it in MONTHS so I dunno where its at :o( Last place I put it is on the entertainment center - makes sense right?! Well its not there!!! There are 7 ppl living here - 4 of which are children - so it can be anywhere! I spent a whole hr looking for it and GAVE UP! Kids are still asleep so Im gonna work on some school work. Just needed to vent! Hopefully I can hit the gym tonight - they close at 7pm and wont have a car til 4pm, and thats if its working ok. We will see!!!!

Abnormal Psychology txtbook - here I come!!!


Much Happier Counting

Saturday, January 15, 2011

So today will start my 4th day back at counting calories and I love seeing the scale changing :o) Ive lost the 2 lbs Ive been yo-yoing with and even a few ozs just this last day. I usually dont keep track of the oz part. My scale does the 237.4 thing and I just take the whole number - no rounding up and down. The way I see it is, most dr offices dont have the digital plus ur in clothes when u weigh so not minding the ozs is a good thing for me :o) Well this morning I noticed there was no ozs! Yes, I weigh every morning. Im not overly obsessive abt it as in it makes up my mood for the day, but I need it as a guage to whether what I have been doing the past few days is working or not. I try to do it first thing in the morning before coffee in just bra and panties, but sometimes I dont remember til after half my coffee is gone. I dont bother then cuz I know the extra fluid will prob set it off. But anyways - yesterday I was 236.X and this morning exactly 236! I was surprised cuz I was twds the top of my calories range and had a higher than usual cal dinner last night. It was so good, and I balanced it with a side salad so I wasnt too worried abt it. This mornings weigh-in just confirmed what I did was ok :o)

So Ive noticed the last few days Ive been back at counting calories Ive been happier. Not sure if its cuz of the sense of control (yes, I have control issues!) or if its the feedback I get every evening. I love seeing that I made all the right choices and was in the range for the day! I dont really pre-plan during the day. I just THINK, make myself consciously aware, of what Im gonna make for the meal/snack and play the 'how do I satisfy my hunger/fuel my body for the least amt of calories?' game :o) Maybe it is cuz I see it as a game - I love math and am ALL abt numbers so yeah :o))))

Hope all is well with my Spark Friends!! Keep Sparkin and we can do this!!!


Jan 12 has been good!

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

So today I cracked down and counted every calorie!!! Looking back on the day I ate within all my ranges!!! Fiber was low but that one is a personal fave to track. When my fiber intake is up, Im happy.

I even got to the gym today and busted my booty doing walking and jogging intervals. Im up to jogging .2mile at a time, 6 times during the 60mins. Ive done it twice and its still somewhat painful so Im gonna continue at this til its comfortable for me to jog these intervals. I wanna push myself but I dont wanna set myself up for failure if I mov to a longer jog when Im not truely ready.

Today has been a great day! Im looking fwd to tomorrow!!


Back at counting calories

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

So I FINALLY bought a watch battery for my food scale so Im back to counting calories ACCURATELY. emoticon It was a struggle bc I felt I was doing well not counting but eating healthy. Apparently I was saddly mistaken. I weighed myself this morning and Im up to 239 from 236 emoticon I dont understand it. I was at 237 just yesterday morning - 2 lbs in one day?! Really??!! TOM is on its last day (very light spotting) so I dont really feel its water weight from being bloated. I just had my thyroid, cholesterol, and hormones checked this back in November - all checked out great!

I havent been to the gym since Saturday but 3 days really isnt that bad. I try to keep it at 2 days in between but I just felt like crap yesterday. I was all set to do it after I did some school work for my online class and eat lunch. Well after the turkey sandwich I felt sooo tired and full. I also had water which didnt help. After procrastinating a bit, I ended up not having enough time to spend my usual hr in the gym before pickin up my bro and sis at school. I said Id come home, get cofee, and then head out to the gym but as the day progressed I just couldnt do it. The hubby is off work today and tomorow and he volunteered to watch the kids while I go this afternoon. Im reeeeeeeeally gonna push myself to go today. If I get in a downward spiral I wont be going back for weeks. I NEED this for me!!!

Hope everyone has a great day! Keep Sparking!

    I hope you made it to the gym. I'm like you - it's hard to break a downward spiral!
I spent the past two days lying on the couch and eating - now I'm trying to turn that behavior around.
We can do this!
