Dinner smells good!

Saturday, April 16, 2011

Ok, thats a bad blog title. But dinner does smell good. Bless my mother and her use of bacon.

I have a confession....I had a coffee today. And it was probably a million calories. It was free though! I had an awesome day at work yesterday and I've worked double the shifts I'm supposed to so my boss shouted me a coffee. Soy mocha made with real chocolate with chocolate flakes on top. Oh my. It was awesome. One every now and then won't kill me, and it filled me up so much that I didn't want my morning snack.

So eating (and drinking) was average today, and no working out because I was at work the hours that the gym was open, and its raining and I'm really, really tired!

I'm off to have dinner. Night y'all

    I'll echo what the rest said
an occasional treat feeds the soul and helps keep us on track

    I love soy mochas! And it was free! As long as these things are just occasional we really enjoy them when we do get them and that is what makes them treats!

    Ah well, so long as you balance out the coffee in some other way (like not having your snack), it's all good!

Surviving the finger food

Friday, April 15, 2011

Last night my parents attended a cocktail party at my dads work and I offered to be their sober driver. Cheaper than a taxi and I was closeby; it was about 15 minutes from my work. I got there early and just joined in the fun. There were crayfish canapes involved, how could I not?

I was mindful of what I was eating and ate a few of the crayfish canapes which were severed on a very thin cracker, as well as a couple of the cheeseless pizza bites. It was my dinner so I didn't abstaine but I was aware that party food is high in calories and low in nutrition.

I think I did well considering the options. I also had 1 glass of orange juice to be social and then quit the liquids until I got home.

So surviving a cocktail party can be added to my list. Next up, Thai dinner with my workmates!

    You did great! I think the nervousness I experience at parties and such makes me want to eat and eat.

    I was just reading the Herald and the title of your blog caught my mind. There was an article about a young guy in NZ who cut off his finger, cooked it in a pan with veges and ate it. Now THAT is what I call "finger food" - not the sort I would like!! Evidently that is the only know case in NZ and one of 8 known to have happened in the world where the person has done that to themselves:-(

4 assignments bite the dust

Thursday, April 14, 2011

Wheew. 4 assignments down, a million more to go!

Eating has been worse the past 2 days, but not horrible. A bit of snacking here and there, but I have been mindful and should be within my calories. I didn't track because I have been so busy with assignments I have barely been on the computer.

My mind is mush right now, so I'll write something interesting later.

I need a virtual high five

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

Today I participated in a student survery for my uni. The thank you was free coffee and muffins. AND I DIDN'T HAVE ANY!!!!

I drank my water and ate my banana and was a good girl.

So please high 5 me, because we all need a little validation sometimes, don't we?!

Edited to add: Also today I soooooo wanted a KFC Zinger burger. Not for the taste, but the texture. Soft bun, creamy mayo, crunchy patty, oh boy. I didn't have one though!!!!!

Big test for me today and I think I passed with flying colours!

FINALLY seeing some results

Monday, April 11, 2011

I tracked everyday last week. I stayed within my calories 6/7 days (I'm counting the day I went over by 10cal as a win, it was only 10!) and I accepted the one day I went over my calories and moved on. I went to the gym 4 times in 2 weeks and I went again last night. I am noticing I am less sore after boxing now, which means I am getting stronger and my body is getting used to it. Will have to start putting more effort in!

I stepped on the scale this morning and it said 85.6. Last time I weighed (a few days ago) it said 86.6. I have seen this number before during a fluctuation but I am hoping that this time it is a real loss.

And I'd just like you all to join me in an international "screw you" to my workmate who laughed at the thought of me going to the gym and then told me that the kilo I have lost is pathetic and I should be losing way more than that, like the people on The Biggest Loser. He, my friends, is the biggest loser in this situation!!!!

    Your co-worker clearly has no idea what he's talking about. Don't let idiotic people like him get you down. It sounds like you accomplished a lot these last couple of weeks and you should be proud of yourself.

    Go you for gym-going and sticking to your guns!

"Screw you, rude workmate!"

I just read a blog by YOOVIE about a person being downright mean about weight loss, too. Its a little mind-numbing that anyone could possibly think its all right to bring someone down like that.

My sister in law had a boyfriend who one night, while they were eating dinner, pointed at her plate and said, "You know, baby, that's why your jeans aren't the size you want them to be." It was the only time she was going to eat that day, because she already thought she was fat at about 105 lbs and felt guilty every time she ate, and they were having baked chicken, rice, and vegetables. I swear I've never wanted to punch someone more in my life than when she told me he'd done that and I sometimes wonder why I didn't.

    Great job with all the changes you're implementing! I'd bet that 1 kg drop is for real!

Umm, your workmate is an asshat...an ill informed asshat at that!

    Your workmate needs to stop watching the Biggest Loser !!! People do NOT lose dramatic amounts of weight in a week. A safe weekly weight loss would be 1-2 pounds or .5 to 1 kilo, roughly. So, you are doing this the right way.

Tell your busy body workmate that the faster a person takes off the weight, the faster it packs back on. You're taking it off slowly, so it will stay off.

Good for you !!!

WHY do people think it is OKAY to be derogatory towards others like that?!?!? I am writing a blog THIS VERY MINUTE about a guy whom I've been getting close to (or so I thought!) who has done something similar to me twice now, and it BLOWS MY MIND. I would NEVER denigrate someone's efforts at health, fitness, motion, strength, personal betterment, etcetera....how can anyone justify that kind of *sshole behavior?!?

So glad you're giving him a big "screw you", because that is the correct response.
