Feeling Good!

Thursday, January 20, 2011

So it's day 3 of this no carb / no Diet Coke thing. Surprisingly enough I feel pretty good!!! I'm not starving. Don't get me wrong, I want carbs, but I almost don't want to start eating them for fear that I might go overboard. I'm not even really going crazy not having Diet Coke. Yay me! My quest to lose 49 lbs. is well on it's way!!! So excited!!!

    Good for you! I would find it hard to give up my diet coke. I have given up most bread, and white rice, but diet coke! It is my treat.

Stealing an entry from my food blog I write

Monday, January 17, 2011

I spent some time writing this on my food blog that I've started. I thought I would share it with my Spark Family as well. I don't think I would be in this frame of mind if weren't for you all, so thank you. xxx

My New Year’s Non-Resolution
January 17, 2011

Well, it’s been quite some time since I’ve posted anything. Believe me, there has been some cooking (A-LOT) involved, which is why I’m posting this.

For the past almost seven years that I’ve been with my sweet husband James, my relationship with food has evolved. Before, in my single days, I didn’t care about eating. The thought of being “single forever” didn’t quite give me an appetite. Wow…did all that change after March, 2004. It wasn’t an immediate change, but I would say within the first year of our blissful dating, James & I both gained the LBS. Here we are almost 7 years later and many pounds overweight ( I will not divulge how many). I knew a day would come when I have had enough of being tired, constantly cursing my clothes for shrinking and disliking my self image. Also the very important issue of the possibility of not being able to spend a long, happy and healthy life with my husband, sister, nieces, nephews and all other amazing members of my family.

So this brings me to today, my day of “Lasts”. Or at least for a little while any way. The last day I will have a cheeseburger, the last day I will eat at Gloria’s, my last Diet Coke, my last possible chance for a Miller Lite or margarita (they are only $4 at Gloria’s M-Th…).

I don’t see this as a resolution. I see it as a life change. To me the word “resolution” holds the possibility of failure and has the life cycle of a year. (This may not be the case for others, but I can’t say I’ve ever successfully completed a resolution.)

So what does this all mean for my blog? Nothing really. I still love eating, I still love to cook. It just means that the recipes I post will be a little healthier. I have to re-establish my relationship with food and have to change the way I think and get rid of the “I’m an adult, I can do whatever I want” mentality. Yes, it’s true, I am an adult but that mentality is going to get me a good case of Type 2 Diabetes and a heart attack, neither of which I want.

I’m excited about this new journey. I’m REALLY excited of the possibility of wearing a size 6 and “shopping” in my closet again! Wish us luck!

To be continued…

  


I'm coming back!

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

Wow...just seeing when my last blog post was makes me mad at myself. I have severely fallen off the wagon. With the holidays and then a week long vacation, I lost all momentum. It's now a New Year and I'm ready to get back on track.

I didn't make any resolutions this year because it puts too much pressure on myself. Granted, I am going to try to do the same things I do every year, but approach them a little differently.

I hope everyone is having a great New Year!!!! I'm ready to get motivated again!!!!

  


Happy Gobble Gobble!!

What a slooooooow day at work today. At least I'm working from home and getting caught up. Only 2.5 hrs. left in my day and it's off to OK!

I have been going nonstop with work, school and baby shower stuff lately, so I am VERY thankful to have a few days off to relax and lay low. I hope to get back on track with my exercise this weekend. I'm making my first ever Thanksgiving feast this Saturday, so wish me luck!!!

I wish you all a blessed holiday!! xxxxx

Carrie

Happy Friday!

Friday, November 19, 2010

It's Friday, I'm working from home and working a short day! I also had my new favorite lunch as well.

I'm dealing with crazy people today, but it makes it easier knowing I'll let it all behind in about 2 hours.

I need a vacation like noone's business and thanking Jebus that next week is a short week and Christmas is soon after that. Come January 3rd I am OFF for an entire week and will hopefully have brand new niece I can hang with!!!

I wish you all a happy weekend!!! Many blessings to you all!
