Quickie..

Thursday, January 17, 2013

I know, I know, quickies can be mostly satisfying, but usually leave you wanting more. At least, they do me.

This was delish and a bit decadent. I won't be eating this all the time, but it was nice to have a yogurt and 'nola breakfast again. I really enjoyed those before kicking grains.

We have developed a bit of a habit of having taco salads Wednesday evening after walking kennel kids. It's quick, easy, relatively healthy, and yummy! I had vowed not to eat the shell, and always order my salad without beans.

Well, this time, they added the beans, but took out the tomato.
emoticon
They were slammin' busy and I almost always have excellent service from them, so I didn't sweat the small stuff, and ate the whole thing!
emoticon
It was good. My belly felt a little swollen afterward, and today I think I'm experiencing the after-effects still. That or my appendix is deciding to make itself known. For the love of Pete!

I owe 20 minutes of fitness today to continue being a BLC Streaker! I have plans after work that will see me home later than usual, and cannot really be counted as fitness. So instead, I'm going for a walk for lunch. I happened to forget my driver's license at home this morning, so Bill is bringing it to me, and he's bringing Millie with him. We're all going for a walk on the waterfront, so I get my 20 minutes in legit, and we get to spend special time together.
emoticon

Anyway, all in all, I'm still keepin' on. Are you?

    Hooray for Quickies emoticon May have to give your recipe a try for quickie snacks. I try to stayaway from some forms of nuts due to high calorie content. Sometimes when a hunger pang hits I reach for an .5 ounce of plain almonds or a combo of almonds and some apple. If I plan on a hard workout I do need my cup of oats to help fuel my way through.
I like your daily memo of keeping track of your deficit of calories burned.

    That's awesome that you got the extra time with DH and the pups. What a lovely day to spend lunch!

I like your Nutola recipe. I'm going to have to try it. I usually just stir granola into my yogurt. This would be a nice change.

Keep up the great work! I'm still plugging on too...

    Hey bailey!

I'm just curious-- why are you going grain free? Are you pursuing a paleo diet? Do grains leave you bloated/ allegies? The nutola sounds super interesting and very filling...

I admire your ability to cut out granola, though-- I love oatmeal/oaty stuffs, I don't know that I would have your willpower!

Flying by..

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

So far this month is flying by, don't you think? Or is it just me? I guess it's a good thing that I'm keeping busy enough to feel like time is slipping by. I'm not behind on anything (yet) although there are a few things that could teeter into that category easily enough. I'm going to have to change my habits during the day, I think, to make sure that doesn't happen.

Brought that calorie intake back to a more reasonable range. Boy my numbers have been all over the board, high and low, but it must be working. I weighed in today at 245.2, and that's pleasing.

I got my walk in last night with two hills that got my heart pumpin' and my lungs thumpin' so I appreciated the Pull Together soup Bill made last evening even more having worked up an appetite. I think I'm going to keep that recipe and just change the ingredients as needed. I'm a lover of soup, and Bill's a pretty good soup maker, usually just 'pulling together' whatever we have on hand and making magic. Hence, the name.

Oh! I'm starting a sugar-free challenge with Team Zombie!

If you love Zombies, and who doesn't?, you really should check out the team.
www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/g
roups_individual.asp?gid=46763


It's an awesome group of people who will survive the coming Zombie apocalypse - and you know it's coming! DogStarDaddy is our fearless leader, surrounded mostly by women (poor man) with his trusty sidekick Yagermonster. We're giving up refined sugar and artificial sweeteners now through Feb. 14. I found out about the challenge ~after~ I'd already had 1 sweetener in my coffee and one in my tea, and some honey greek yogurt with sweeteners, so I start tomorrow.

We'll see where I am.. 28 Days Later..
(loosely veiled Zombie reference.. anyone?)
It may be ugly, giving up my Dove Promises rewards each evening. Poor Bill.
emoticon emoticon

**IMPORTANT UPDATE**
DSD and Team Zombie have opted to wait until Feb. 1 to start the 28 Days Later sugar/articifical sweetener free challenge!
emoticon
That means you can join the group now in a haze of sugar lust, and be good for another 15 days before you have to kick the habit!

    This month IS going by way to quickly. I need a few more days.

Good luck with your sugar-free challenge. I might join except I'm a cut back, not out kind of gal though maybe giving it up for a defined period would be a good idea.

Good job on the cals and the weight loss! You are inspiring me to get with it as soon as my with-it is feeling like a little gettting.

Oh and good luck to Bill too!

Trompin' on...

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

Busy days at work are best, because they seem to make the time fly by. Boy was time going at warp speed yesterday! Sometimes I impress myself with my multitasking skills.

I let Bill know before I left for work that I planned on walking once I got home for the day. We texted back and forth during the day about the snow that was falling, then wasn't, then was. I liked seeing it fall outside our office window, all lazy and drifty and quiet. As long as it doesn't stick and make everything icy, I'm all for it!

Unfortunately, by the time I got home, it had warmed enough to turn everything to mist/drizzle rather than rain, but that's alright, I walked in it anyway. I didn't get cold (base layer under technical long-sleeve shirt, regular long workout pants, gloves, ear muff, neck gator, hat, SmartWool socks) and was able to keep up a pretty good pace. I think I'm going to start including the 59th St hill in my route. It doesn't really add any distance (I ended up at 2.5 miles) but it's a steep incline that gets my ticker pumpin'! It's a good feeling to reach the top of the hill and keep on going, breathing hard but not stopping.

Of course, when I changed to go out and walk, I forgot to clip on my Fitbit, so it didn't log my steps, mileage, or calories burned. That's ok, I remember how to enter that stuff manually LOL

The Bacon Brussel Sprouts were delish, btw.

Monday, January 14, 2013

I'm kind of bummed that I missed blogging yesterday, but I gave myself permission to put it off until today.

I did better at not eating as much, fortunately.

Sunday dawned downright cold again, but dry at least and no icy conditions. We took our time getting ready for the day, snuggling up puppies and cleaning bird cages, etc. We hit the Humane Society around 10, and waited excited. It was our first effort at involving other volunteers in the dog path maintenance, and Bill had heard from a couple of people that they might show up to help us.

No one else showed up.
emoticon

That's ok, though, it was like 28 degrees when we started! Hopefully when the weather turns for the better people will come give us a try.

We cleaned up downed limbs and debris for the first hour and a half, then dedicated ourselves to removing a tree our resident beaver had harvested last year. The tree has been laying in the creek as long as I've been a volunteer (7 months now, woohoo!) so it was time to take it out. Bill used a handsaw to break it down into manageable pieces, and I snapped off the twigs and limbs, cutting them into wheelbarrow sized pieces.

All told, we worked 4 hours on cleaning everything up. My Fitbit only counted 76 minutes of that as exercise, but that's alright. I still had a good calorie burn, my arms and hands were a bit achy from the unusual activity, and I got in plenty of steps. We even got a WooHoo from one of the paid staff for our efforts, which was unexpected but oh-so-appreciated.

Back home we trundled, and spent the rest of the evening trying to warm up LOL It was a good day overall.

MUCH better eating day. Finally reigned myself in and made smarter decisions about what to eat. For instance, I really wanted buttered popcorn for dinner, but opted for meat and veggies instead. I also really wanted a mocha before bed, but decided to have Dove Dark Chocolates instead, saving calories again.

I'm ready to get underway with BLC and to find out what challenges lie ahead. I'm worrying about fitness challenges since I'm not doing much more than walking right now, but that's the point, isn't it? To be challenged to move outside your comfort zone and work harder for your goals.

Ah yea!

    Good for you! I've been such a couch potato for so long.....

I'm really impressed that you do so much for the Humane Society! I belong to WIRES here, which is native wildlife rescue and rehab. I always wondered why we get so many calls for domestic animals - turns out that even though we have RSPCA in the area, they don't do a heck of a lot. I guess that alleviates any guilt I'll have in the future for not supporting them. I'll give my donations/time to WIRES and other native critter places.

What the....

Saturday, January 12, 2013

Even though Friday was my day off, we got up early and bundled up to head over to walk the kennel kids. It was 30-32 degrees out, which was fine except for the thin layer of ice over everything.

Three and a half hours later we had walked the equivalent of a 10K, and managed to not once slip and fall!
emoticon
LOL I call that good fortune.

Once we got home, we showed, warmed up, and had lunch. I had a big lunch but I had a big appetite. I don't know if it was the cold or what, but Bill crashed for a long afternoon nap, and I slipped into a wakeful coma - that kind of state where you just don't move even though you're awake and aware. I think we got up to make dinner, and that was that!

Oddly enough (or maybe not) I had a very high calorie day and my biggest loss yet on the scale. Coincidence? We'll see. I know what you eat on one day does not automatically show up on the scale the next day, but I did find it interesting. We'll see how things trend over the next few days.

    It is good that you keep a log. Logging is my salvation that keeps me in line. Since you saw me last I have lost 9 lbs and I contribute it to consistently logging in my food and exercise. Keep up the good work with your animals. It is serendipity that they get to walk while exercising their walkers.

    Oh a courageous cougar, yes, that's you! I hope you do really well with your challenge. I think I should hire you and Bill to come walk Maureen. I think she would be thrilled to walk that far. Do you walk fast? She'd like that too. LOL

P.S. Think I'm joking? After their 1.2 mile walk earlier today, my ornery pups are wrestling at my feet. Good thing there's a back key on this thing or all my mistakes would make it illegible! Sigh.

    Have fun with the team challenge! Our Winter 5% Challenge is just getting ready to start. It's only 8 weeks though. I'm hoping to make my goal this time around.

Good luck with the challenge!
Chris

    I'd love to walk pound puppies, but no opportunities here. I should just start taking out our exciteable terrier. She'd love that.

Do you find your BMR to be accurate? I make myself crazy looking at numbers and trying to make everything coordinate. Especially when those numbers can fluctuate all over the map.
