#36 - The Weekend (Days 11-13)

Monday, February 06, 2012

Friday:

- I got eight bottles of water in.
- I ate pretty good up until dinner.
- I wasn't feeling well, so I didn't get my goal of 30 minutes of exercise.

My boyfriend and I ended up skipping the birthday party. Both of us were exhausted from the week, so we decided to get Mexican, and we came home to relax.

-----------------------------
Saturday:

- I only achieved one goal on Saturday: I went grocery shopping.
- I didn't get my eight cups of water.
- Since I had run out of my healthy food, I was unprepared for Saturday, so I turned to bad food.
- My boyfriend and I did some shopping, so I got some walking in.

I could definitely tell a difference on Saturday that I had messed up. Since I did not eat well nor did I get my water in, I was feeling dehydrated and crappy all day. I definitely learned a lesson.

-----------------------------
Sunday:

- Again, no water.
- I ate a healthy breakfast.
- Lunch and dinner were pizza (not good).
- I got my batch cooking in! (Yay for one goal!)

---------------------------
I'm thankful for a new week. I'm starting fresh this morning, and I'm very happy about that. Over the weekend, I realized that my body was getting used to the healthy food and the eight cups of water. If I don't get those, I feel run down all day. So, I'm definitely glad I recognized this.

My biggest issue right now is that I do so well during the week, but I screw it up over the weekend. I realize that Saturday, I was unprepared which led to the bad decisions. So, next weekend, I am doing the grocery shopping on Friday night, so I can make better decisions on Saturday.

I live with a boyfriend who likes to go out to eat, hang out with friends, and sometimes drink. I'm having a difficult time balancing that because I feel like, if I don't do those things too, then he will get bored and upset with me. However, in the back of my mind, I feel guilty because I know how hard I worked during the week, and I want to be successful during the weekends too. I'm trying to change my life for the better. I don't want to halfway do it. He knows I am trying to lose weight, but he's always saying "Let's go out to eat!". So, I guess my question is: how do you balance having a life with also trying to lose weight? How do you deal with family members? How are you successful on the weekends?

    The #1 thing you MUST make sure you order when you go out to eat is WATER. This is especially true at fast food restaurants. Do not order another drink until you've finished your water. (You may actually ask for more water, because the idea of drinking a whole drink when everyone else at the table is 3/4 done their meal is just no longer appealing and/or seems it might be wasteful.)

#2 All GOOD family friendly restaurants keep one thing in the kitchen (for cranky babies) that they don't mind substituting "instead of fries" and that is (insert drum roll here) APPLESAUCE. Check in with your favorite hot spots for this great option.

#3 Look on the menus for turkey burgers. Instead of ground beef, it's ground turkey. If you're not already loving this option, try it at home. You may discover it's the perfect option......especially with applesauce.

#4 Many chain restaurants have menus on line. Take some time to list 2 things on each of your favorite hot-spot menu options that work well with your food plan. This includes fast food places too, and go ahead and add them to your favorites while you're doing your research. Keep this list where you keep your driver's license. It is your license to drive through and away from restaurants more guilt free than ever before. It can also be a guideline or like cheat notes when at a restaurant that doesn't have their menu online, but carries similar meals to the chains. This list, alone, has saved me LOTS of grief.

#5 Drinking at a bar with friends does not have to be stressful. Light beers from Coors to Amstel are great options if you enjoy beer, and reviewing what a shot of your favorite liquor with water will cost you in calories ahead of time will help you gauge, and nobody will think you're a sissy if you're still drinking your water. No more than one shot per hour and a half, and you'll probably stay sober too.

Hey, look, it's the incredible shrinking YOU!

    I eel the same way about the weekends. During my week I am provided with breakfast and lunch so on the weekend I am lost. I tend to eat the stuff that I am not supposed to and my portions are way out of control. I am working on it though and we will both overcome this. I know that we will. one day we will look back at the struggles that we are having and think how far we have come.

    Hey you did reach some goals this weekend which is great. I love, love, love batch cooking. I wouldn't get home cooked meals for myself for the week if I didn't do this.
As far as your boyfriend goes maybe you need to have a serious talk with him. Maybe compromise and go out a little less or at least eat out a little less. My boyfriend is only over on the weekends so I tend to cook yummy, healthy food so that he doesn't want to go out. Hey, I can make healthy Mexican at home. I can also make healthy pizza. Give it a shot. Try and get him on board. He might not even realize he's sabotaging you. If he loves you he will want the best for you. Good luck!

  Looking up the food online before you go out to eat is the best way to control it, and making a habit of hitting places with good salads you can look forward to enjoying.

I always gain weight when I'm in love, but then I get embarrassed about how my body looks. This definitely is a balancing act we'll have to learn. Helps to go to the gym w/ the boyfriend, to drink so much water you're not hungry, and to sign up for like 5k races on the weekend together.

    Yeah, I can relate to this. My fiance and son are both naturally thin and they can and do eat anything they want. This means that there are always snacky-snacks in my pantry calling my name :( My only suggestion is to sit your BF down and tell him that you are serious about getting healthy, and that it makes you feel bad when you eat bad. Share with him what you've learned so far about healthy eating. Then maybe when y'all go out, you can both choose someplace healthy, or at least something healthy on the menu. (Unfortunately, this approach hasn't worked for me, but it may work for you ;)

I also think it's great that you can make it through the week staying on track. Celebrate this accomplishment, and then make sure that during the week you are very dedicated. I think you will still see results if you are committed during the week and splurge a little on the weekend. Jackie Warner, the fitness guru, allows her clients one cheat meal a week...maybe this would work for you.

GOOD LUCK girl!

    I was unprepared this weekend too and it lead to a lot of eating out. I need to work on that next weekend!

I stopped doing things with friends that involved food in order to stay on track during the weekends. I am fortunate though because my boyfriend is doing the whole healthy lifestyle thing with me. Good luck finding the balance.

    When going out, I always try to have a few healthy choices in my mind and then I don't look at the menu. I don't always do it.....I do give in. Weekends are hard because they are not structured. Wwork with your boyfriend and see what ideas you can up with to make them easier.......fitnesss dates or healthy cooking compitions.

    My work puts me in restaurants about 7 times a week. Sometimes it is a nice place with lots of options and other times it is a greasy spoon. The easiest thing is to just order something healthy, a grilled chicken or fish dish, a green salad with some sides or a healthy appetizer. If I'm not at a place where healthy is an option I order a slice of cheese pizza, a sandwich with no cheese or mayo and take the top off and eat it open face and maybe only eat half. I forgo the french fries. If the person I'm dining with seems eager for me to try something not so healthy, I take a small portion and nibble slowly on it (I fake my hubby out with this move too). Also, if you know you are going to a place without good options eat a high protein, healthy snack before you go. My metabolism really bonks if I drink so I also have tricks for drinking too, but that is for another time.

    I ate a frozen meal the other day and it felt horrible, I was sick almost instantly. Lesson learned. As for how to deal with what life throws at you and relationships, it is very hard. I don't have the answer yet. I struggle with trying to eat well too sharing the house with my husband. It's so easy to cave in, and say, "Okay just one," and then eat more. I agree with EMFAPPIER that you cannot always say no to going out because it might derail you. Just pick healthier options, look it up ahead of time and stick to your guns. You can do this!!

    Weekends are hard for me as well. I find that during the week, everything goes to plan. The weekends I wake up later, eat at different times, and am hungry late at night (cause I don't go to bed until later)..

As for water, I get about 6 glasses in but it is hard. I just don't get thirsty. I have set an alarm on my phone that goes off once every 2 hours reminding me to drink water. That might help you out as well. I now find myself looking for the alarm to go off before it does!

Good luck with weekends, I am sure you will get in a "good groove" soon! Oh, way to go on your body getting use to being healthy! That is a wonderful sign you are doing great!!

    Weekends are always a struggle. I've found that being honest about your feelings and goals is the best way to handle a significant other wanting to go out all the time. My husband didn't know the things about food that I do, so he was pretty interested and ended up making some changes to his eating. Compromise is also necessary. You can't live in a bubble and never go out, but you can try to find healthier places or at least healthy options.

#35 - Day Ten - Thursday.

Friday, February 03, 2012

First off, thanks to all my WONDERFUL Spark Friends for being so supportive with each blog I have written lately. Some are about good things, and some are not so good, but you all have been there through thick and thin. I can't tell you how much I appreciate it! So, again, thank you!

emoticon

Ok, here's my Thursday news:

Water: 11 cups. Yep. Me. I drank eleven cups yesterday. I definitely think I am getting used to it, and honestly, I feel better knowing that this is a positive change. For all my life, I have hated water. I would not drink it at all. So, I would consider it a major improvement!

Food: So, I went to my Mom's for dinner last night. The meal was yummy! It was soooo good that I almost got another plate; however, I stopped myself because I have worked VERY hard this last week or so, and I did not want to ruin it. I'm not sure if I was under or over on my calories since I wasn't exactly sure what was in the gravy. I did track the rice, grape juice, and chicken that I ate.

Exercise: I was only aiming to do 20-30 minutes yesterday since I had somewhere to go; however, I ended up doing 40 minutes of Zumba. I was tired yesterday, but I managed to get through it. Afterwards, I felt good about exercising.

Sleep: Well, I didn't get much last night. Thursdays are the nights when all the good TV shows come on, so I didn't leave my Mom's until about 11pm. I laid down about 11:30pm. So, I got about 6.5 hours. No worries though. I WILL be getting my eight hours tonight!

-----------------------------
Thursday's Goals:

1. Drink eight cups of H20. emoticon (I still can't believe I got 11 in!)
2. Stick to one plate of dinner. emoticon
3. No soda. emoticon --> I did have Grape Juice although I added water to it. I didn't even end up drinking all of it to be honest. Since I am new to drinking water, I can't quite drink it with meals yet, but I am working on it!

----------------------------
So far, so good. I'm planning to do C25K W1D2 this afternoon, but I'm pretty exhausted from lack of sleep last night and from lots of exercise this week. I've managed to "burn" about 1400 calories this week, and my goal is only 1080 calories. We'll see about this afternoon.

    Try not to worry so much about a few calories over or under. It's more about eating the right things, and also allowing splurges here and there so you don't feel deprived. I drink tons of water too, and I find that when I don't my body feels weird.

If your boyfriend wanted any one of them, he wouldn't be with you now would he? He certainly wouldn't have invited you.....but he did. That speaks VOLUMES to me, as it should to you.

    Great job with the water! I always hated it too... especially with a meal or if I had a cold. It wasn't until I gave up all drinks that were not water that I started to like it and find it easier to meet my water goal each day. I still really miss sweet tea though!

#34 - Tomorrow Night.

Thursday, February 02, 2012

Ok, so I originally wasn't going to post anything about this, but I don't know. I think I need to just get it off my chest.

Tomorrow night, my boyfriend and I are supposed to be going to his co-worker's birthday "party". The reason I put this in quotes is because they are going bar-hopping. I already have a plan for tomorrow night, but the issue is - I don't feel beautiful. When I look in the mirror, I see an overweight girl, and that girl I see isn't beautiful. When I put on pants, my stomach bulges out of the top. In all honesty, I sort of look pregnant (although I am not!).

His female co-workers, from what I've seen, are fairly small. They are pretty. I just don't want people to be talking about me although I'm sure the focus won't be on me. I guess I'm just scared of people giving me looks or making comments.

My weight-loss journey isn't just about losing weight although I know that the above paragraph makes it seem that way, but my ultimate goal is to be healthy. I want healthy habits. However, part of me is losing weight for vanity reasons.

So, how would you or do you deal with this? I've talked to him, and he said we didn't have to go, but it's not fair for us to stay at home because I have low self-esteem. I mean I feel good about myself now that I've lost some inches and a pound, but I know what I see in the mirror.

  that's a hard one for me too. i was actually relieved when i went out the other night, and a new friend was there, and she was bigger than me.. finally i wasn't the biggest at the table. which is really selfish and vain, i know.

my problem is that in my head, i'm still this thin teenager, and when i catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror, it's like what the heck? and i get really self conscious.

    Put on your favorite pretty shirt, some nice jewelry, and some "power" underwear and get yourself out there! Have the best possible time. If you find yourself obsessing about something, get yourself out on the dance floor! That will be aerobic exercise too so it's a bonus. Keep smiling because that's the most beautiful, sexiest thing of all.

    I feel the same way when I go out which is the reason that I do not really go out anymore. I try and remember just like you that even though I feel like every one is looking and talking about the fat girl they are not. My best advice to you and to myself is that we should just go out and have fun anyway. Other people feel just like we do no matter what size they are or what they look like. You are a great wonderful person who is beautiful. I am sure that your boyfriend and all your other friends think the same.

    I can relate beyond belief. I think most of us can. You need to focus on HOW MUCH you have done to make yourself healthy. You WILL get to your goal of being healthy. Vanity plays a huge part in weight loss, and that's okay. We all want to feel amazing and look amazing.

You will look amazing and hopefully have fun. I think once you get out you'll have a great time. Focus on the fun you and your boyfriend will have. Think about how amazing he is and what a supportive guy you have.

You are beautiful... regardless of how you see yourself!

    I know EXACTLY how you feel. The last time I was in Miami, all the beautiful, skinny, perfect women wreaked havoc on my self-esteem. You have to remember that your boyfriend chose you for a reason. He probably LOVES you for you, and loves your body. He probably doesn't care about any muffin top you might have. You need to try to look at yourself the way he does. Instead of thinking about what's wrong with yourself, try thinking of all the many things you LOVE about yourself. Focus on those things :) Also, focus on having fun while you're out. Once you resolve to just relax and have fun, you'll feel better.

    Look I know how you feel. We were supposed to attend a wonderful friends wedding last weekend and I made up some lame excuse as to why we couldn't go (in advance of course) but it was because of the way I feel. I really think you should go you will probably have a really fun time and you may even make great friends. People do judge but you really need to cut them so slack also. Not every one is mean and worry about appearances. I think you are so beautiful and you probably are kind and caring and great fun aswell. Give it a go. You may surprise yourself.

    Wow, I can totally relate to this.

My husband is in a rock band and the other band members all have hot hipster girlfriends/wives. I always feel stressed about going out with them and being judged (or having my husband judged for being with me), but I am pretty sure I'm way more critical of myself than they are. I usually end up having a good time.

So, I say you should go. It will never be as bad as you think it will. And why punish your boyfriend? If he wants to bring you, it means he is happy for his coworkers to know you're his gal.

#33 - Day Nine - Wednesday.

Thursday, February 02, 2012

Here's Day Nine -

Water: I didn't hit get my eight cups of water in. I got distracted at work in the afternoon which is when I usually drink four cups. I only got to drink two during that time. Oh well. I ended up with seven cups of water which is better than last week. I'm hoping that today I reach the eight mark.

Exercise: So, I tried C25K yesterday. Day One wasn't the best experience. After my first one-minute run, I was feeling good. However, during my second run, I had a very bad asthma attack. It was the worst attack I've ever had. Luckily, I was close enough to home to get my inhaler. I took a few minutes to settle down. During those few minutes, I debated whether or not I should get out there. Part of me was like "Why? The attack messed up the run. You can start over on Friday." The other part of me said "It's ok. You can do a quick walk to warm up again, and you can start back where you left off. You want to do this." I ended up going with the latter with my inhaler in hand. The remainder of the walk/jog wasn't too bad. It was difficult though. I ended up only doing about 2.4 miles in 30 minutes because I was going slow. Is that ok? I'm thinking I may have to repeat Week One again, but we'll see when I get to Day Three.

Food: Another pretty good day. I did well in regards to calories, protein, cholesterol, fat, etc. I went over on my carbs though. That's ok. I will try better today.

Sleep: I was exhausted yesterday, so I ended up laying down at 9:30pm. Guess what that means?! I got eight and a half hours of sleep! FINALLY! I could do a dance because I am so happy! Honestly, I feel a difference too.

----------------------------
Wednesday's Daily Goals:

1. 30 minutes of cardio. emoticon
2. Drink six cups of water. emoticon
3. Get eight hours of sleep. emoticon
4. Try a new sleeping habit. (Go to bed earlier.) emoticon

---------------------------
So, yesterday went pretty well. I'm happy about that!

Tonight is dinner night with Mom. I have a question. She's fixing dinner tonight, but I am not exactly sure what ingredients will be used nor how much. How should I track tonight's dinner? Any suggestions?

    2.4 miles in 30 minutes is great! I'm doing about 2.6 miles in 35 - 40 minutes so I would say you're doing amazing. I know how hard it is for me, so you are well on your way!!

Week 2 Day 1 was rough for me. A whole minute is so much longer than it seems, but I did it and I made it - just like you! So proud of you for going back out there and doing it. It might be a good idea to bring your inhaler with you from now on just in case.

Hooray for sleep! I sincerely think exercise helps with getting enough sleep. :) Glad to hear you got your full 8 hrs!

You could ask for the recipie or ask her to estimate what she uses and plan ahead. That way you can also figure out portion control before the meal. If you can't reach her or feel strange about it, just try to break it down as best you can and estimate. I find this website very useful in eyeballing sizes and portions.

Just stick to one plate full and you should be fine. If you feel you've overeaten, don't punish yourself for it, everyone slips up now and then :)

  congrats on starting c25k! i'm glad you tried again after you asthma attack. feel free to stretch out the program as needed... i have a feeling i'm going to spend 2 weeks at the 5 minute intervals! it does get easier.

with your mom... maybe you could say something like 'oh that was so good! can i have the recipe?' maybe that would give you an idea of what to track. or maybe you could call her and ask what she's serving, and offer to bring a salad or something too... so if it's something that's high calorie, you can have a smaller portion and eat more of the vegetables. it's hard eating at other people's houses! hope it goes well!

    Glad you were able to recover from the asthma attack--take it easy! :) Sounds like you've been doing well: keep it up! As far as dinner, don't worry about. Just get a smaller plate than what she'll be using and drink a cup of water before starting to eat--this will help you feel more full and not overeat. Thankfully one meal doesn't have the power to destroy all your hard work.

#32 - Day Eight - Tuesday.

Wednesday, February 01, 2012

Here's Day Eight:

Water: I ended up drinking nine cups of water yesterday! I can't even believe it! I also drank two cups of green tea as well! emoticon

Exercise: Yesterday, it was a little chilly outside, so I stayed inside and did Zumba. I did three 20-minute classes. By the end of it, I was soaked from all the sweat! I was a little sore from Monday's Zumba workout, so I wasn't in tip-top shape, but I did pretty well.

Food: I had another great day in this department. I tried out a new recipe called "Easy Black Beans & Rice". It was pretty good! I had nine servings of fruits and vegetables as well.

Sleep: Last night, I fell asleep pretty quickly. I think I was exhausted from Zumba and cleaning the house. I didn't get the full eight though since I went to bed a little late, and I woke up at 5am for a few minutes. I still consider this progress though! emoticon

------------------------------------
Tuesday's Goals:

1. 30 minutes of cardio. emoticon
2. Drink at least six cups of water. emoticon
3. Get eight hours of sleep. - Almost!

-----------------------------------
Today (Wednesday) was my weigh-in and measure day. I was going to wait to post this until tomorrow's blog, but I couldn't! I can't believe the progress!

Jan. 19 --> Feb. 1
Weight: 173 lbs --> 172 lbs

Waist: 33 5/8 in. --> 32 1/4 in. (-1 3/8 in.)
Hips: 42 1/8 in. --> 41 1/2 in. (-5/8 in.)
Thigh: 24 5/8 in. --> 22 13/16 in. (-1 13/16 in.)
Arm: 12 5/8 in. -- > 12 1/2in. (-1/8 in.)
Neck: 14 in. --> 13 3/4 in. (-1/4 in.)
Calf: 15 7/8 in. --> 15 11/16 in. (-3/16 in.)

Even though I didn't lose much in some areas, all of the measurements were losses! This sort of makes me sad because I feel like if I had be more disciplined over the weekend, I would have seen even better results. However, I have lost a pound and inches since I started, so I am happy about that!

    I am amazed that you did 3 20 minute sessions of Zumba. Usually after the 20 minute session I am tired out! So that is awesome! Great job on the 1 lb loss!
