Short and sweet..

Friday, January 11, 2013

I totally recognized that because I felt so tired I was more snacky. I was mindful and while it looks like I was really bad, I was conscious of what I was doing and made actual decisions and didn't let a craving dictate what I ate.

This is my Friday off, so I've been busy already today, and have more stuff going on later. I'll be back tomorrow! Spark On!

    There's a big difference between being mindful about the snacks you're eating and eating mindlessly (I'm so guilty of falling into that when I'm tired or feeling 'off' for some reason!). I'd say that was a pretty decent day; an occasional higher calorie day can actually be a good thing so your body doesn't think you're starving it. Have a great day off and a wonderful weekend! I'm already looking at hotels for Portland RnR . . . looking forward to it and to seeing you!

Over the hump..

Thursday, January 10, 2013

.. and on the downhill slide. In a good way!

Yesterday was kennel kid walking day, so I spent my day at work waiting for the time I could bolt out of the building and go walk the furbabies. I thought I had packed a good day's worth of meals, but apparently it was a bit under on calories. I didn't feel hungry or shorted in any way. My ratios of proteins, carbs, and fats was just fine, my calorie count was just a bit low. I felt it this morning when I woke up.

I love walking kennel kids because I never know who I'm going to walk - a Pitbutt, a Chihuahua, a Terrier, old, young, fast, slow. Last night was a good mix of dogs, and I was lucky to get kisses from these two gentlemen:

Brian Bean

www.oregonhumane.org/adopt/de
tail.asp?animalID=138815


Ramone

www.oregonhumane.org/adopt/de
tail.asp?animalID=140323


I would totally take either one of them home in a heartbeat. They're older, well mannered, gentle souls who can look into your eyes and ~see~ you as you see them.

Brian, I visited in his kennel because someone else walked him. Ramone and I trotted around the dog path, chatting quietly about my day and his, and sniffing all the good spots. One of the best ways I've found to burn calories and get my steps in!

For dinner, Bill took the leftover roasted chicken and shredded it up for homemade taco salads. We bought those baking pans that you can use to bake your own taco shell bowls, and he baked some High Fiber Low Carb tortillas. My goodness, when you've worked up an appetite, home cookin' tastes that much better!

As some of your Fitbit users may have found, my Fitbit is reporting all the calories I burn in a day. Not all the calories are tied to fitness activities of course - I'm burning calories (though not many) right now as I sit here and type this. Anyway, I've found that since all my burned cals are being reported, my daily cals burned total is pretty high, and is putting me way over my expected calorie burn of 2,000 per week. I set that goal because for me, that is a good active week, and I know it is attainable. Spark of course admonishes me because I've burned more than expected and should up my calories-to-eat to make sure I'm getting enough fuel.

Not. Gonna. Happen.
I'm fine, I'm eating quite healthfully and nutritiously, I'm rarely left hungry (unless I don't plan well enough, and that's rare) and I'm consistently, bit by bit, losing. I'm not going to up my calorie range. I feel pretty good with where things are right now. I'll adjust if ever needed, but right now, I'm a happy girl.

A little blast from the past!

Yet another good day yesterday. I was tired again, and ended up having a cuppa coffee late in the afternoon to keep me going. I needed the pick-me-up so I could get home, harness up my Bubbie boy, and drag him and Bill around for a walk. He was a little trooper, enjoying the outing and meeting a couple of dogs along the way. Usually he's very reactive and barky and embarrassing when it comes to other dogs, but the other lady we met walking her two poo-poo'd the idea that he was mean and facilitated a nice meet'n'greet between Bubs and her dogs. Her dogs - tiny little Yorkies - didn't make a noise, and Bubs got over his over-excitement quickly, sniffed, play-bowed, barked, then laid down because no one was reacting back at him LOL Yay!

Once home, we had a delicious primal dinner and a lounge on the couch. He earned it!

No, that's not quite within my calories range. Spark harps that, due to my increased logged fitness minutes/calories burned, I should increase my intake. I did up my intended calorie burn to 2000 a week, although Fitbit is reporting that I'm burning much more than that. As long as I keep losing, I'll keep doing what I'm doing. I'm not too worried about it at this point.

Oops!..

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

Yesterday was a good day. I started off by getting up and getting workout gear on, booting the puppies outside to do their bizness, started the coffee, and headed downstairs to the treadmill. 25-odd minutes later, I re-emerged, my walk for the day done, and hit the shower. By the time I had beautified myself and was ready to face a Monday at work, I had plenty of time to snuggle the pups, chatter with the birds, catch up on the news, and enjoy my coffee.

Aaaahhhh.
emoticon

Work slowly drained me of the will to live.

Not really. Well, mostly not really. It was an alright day, but I realized I was tireder from my morning walk than I'd anticipated. All I know is by the time I got home last evening, I was done. I had considered another walk on the tready but opted to let my initial efforts stand for the day. I changed into a nightie, forgot put to my Fitbit on, and made dinner, fed the puppies and birds, and caught up on Downton Abbey.

So, no Fitbit minutes, calorie burn, steps, info of any kind after 4:30 last night until 4:15 this morning. That's alright, I think it'll be ok. Maybe.

There may come a time when that quirky line doesn't move in the right direction. Forget may, there WILL come a time when the line isn't trending the way I want it. I'm pleased for now. I don't even mind the slight uptick before the downtick. I can live with that. It means I'm doing it right, again. Just keep on keepin' on baby.

    I bet you can estimate your calories for your the time your fitbit wasn't on. I hate it when I forget to start my HRM but I swear it only happens when I'm really pushing myself and I really want to see the numbers. Ugh - technology.

I'm sorry work slowly drained your will to live. I wish I didn't understand. Thankfully my job is in a slightly better place of late - just too busy.

You are getting some great numbers and I love seeing the chart trend down. The line may not be as steep of a slope down in the future, but I'm betting on you and expect to see that line continue to go down-down-down-down for a long time to come!

Sunday Sunday...

Monday, January 07, 2013

I'd call it a successful day. Sunday is usually my 'stay home and hibernate' day because as in introvert, I sometimes just need to be in the house and quiet to recharge for the coming week. That didn't quite happen.

We started off going to the grocery store for 'a few things' and wound up with a buggy-full! Then we had to make a side trip to get the pastured butter and half'n'half, and got even MORE stuff. Then we ran out to the Mart of Wal in Gresham, and finished off the trip at Costco.
emoticon

Four hours later, we had everything we needed and then some LOL I think we're good for a while. A few loads of laundry (and multiple trips up and down the stairs), a 20-min. jaunt on the treadmill, and sweeping and vacuuming later, and I was done! Let's just say there was no trouble falling asleep last night. We supped on homemade cream of broccoli soup which was uber-yummy and filling and relatively guilt-free and I wound up nicely in the middle of my calorie count for the day.

I did the 20 minutes on the treadmill because I want to know that I had intentional fitness minutes, above wandering around shopping, and I wanted to get in at least 1 mile for the day. I'm mostly accepting what the Fitbit One is saying for my calories burned, but I'm going to have to ignore what SparkPeople says when it harps that I'm burning too many calories and not eating enough. I'll have to be sure that I find that sweet spot to continue losing without doing without - so to speak.

I might have to save up my pennies for the Fitbit. There's a lot of talk on here about it and it sounds really interesting. I have a HRM that I never used. I wonder if I could sell it and use that money to buy me a Fitbit which I think I would like better.

I like the idea of "intentional fitness". I need to keep that in mind.

Keep going! You're doing great.
