Day 10

Wednesday, June 27, 2007

Down 0.4 lbs or 0.2 lbs depending what mood my scale was in today! I went to the Food Coop and got some of their wonderful salads. Apple/Fennel, Carrot with raisins, bean and corn and curried chicken. Boy did they taste good and I have to start being more imaginative than just lettuce, tomato and cucumber! I did buy radishes though. I am enjoying some new smoothie recipes from here and they do fill me up. Maybe I will splurge on my anniversary but if I do I suspect it will NOT be the main course!! Maybe they have a semi-healthy dessert that is not the triple chocolate cake! Lets hope so. Bumped into my chiropractor who thought I had lost weight (but only after I told her I was on a diet) hopefully its starting to show a little though.

Meanwhile went for a walk and got glared at when the dog (who was on a leash) chased a deer, it hopped up in front of us and she just lunged and pulled the leash out of my hand. She came back right away though but I was embarrassed by the dirty looks. Then 2 cyclists got upset because I tried to let them go across the road and apparently they wanted to remain and gossip on the crossing. Who knows why! Then my 3 year old, who normally likes to hike decided she did not today and then had a major melt down in the health food store. They plied her with salad, strawberries and an apricot. Way to go to reward the melt-down folks! She had kind of calmed down by then though. We are really fighting the naps again as she falls asleep in the car then does not go to sleep until 11 and wakes up at 8 AM. Well I managed to avert the nap today so we will see what time it is tonight. I don't know about her but I'm exhausted!

    Wow, what a day you had! I hope today is better. Sounds like your hike was more exciting than normal huh? At least your dog came right back! As for the cylists, who knows what goes on in their minds. I enjoy riding bikes as much as the next person, but sometimes these riders have an attitude that they are on a higher level than me. I get so frustrated and nervous around here sometimes, because they will have a group of about 25 riders and they insist on riding in the road, some day, someone will injure one of them. I am thinkin about you and sending you some good positive energy! Your buddy, Pris

Sounds like you have had a rough day. I hope tomorrow will go a little more smooth. My dog does the same thing, like he could catch the deer. LOL Take care and hope you got some rest.

Day 9

Tuesday, June 26, 2007

Well I lost 0.2 lbs! I know daily weighing is not a good idea but it really works for me to keep track and keep on target. As long as I am headed in the right direction thats ok. I did 15 mins on the Elliptical, a walk to the beach and 2 miles pushing the stroller and 35 lb daughter! Did some extra stomach exercises too. I can definitely feel it. Really feel like a snack too but I had my snack (a Lara bar which is delicious by the way) and herbal tea. Tomorrow I think I will get a mixed salad box from the local Food Coop its good but no idea what the calories are in them, maybe I can ask! Of course Thursday is our Wedding Anniversary of 4 years and we are going out to dinner. Well instead of fish and chips or pasta I am planning to have Spanokopita and salad, they do make an excellent salad. Hope I can do it! Never mind dessert....we will see!

    You are doing great!! Keep it up!! And enjoy your anniversary! If you go off your diet, do not beat yourself up! Instead try what I do-call it a shock to your system so your body does not get too accustomed to the diet and start to plateau! Then after the shock, go back to your diet that much happier because you had a fun shock!

Day 8

Tuesday, June 26, 2007

I will be glad when the days and hopefully the pounds lost are in double figures! I am still apparently losing, though I am very impatient, I am making myself stick to 1200 calories or a little more and not starving myself, that may be too little, but I would like to drop 10 or 20 lbs then see where I am at and maybe increase my daily calorie intake a little. At least 20 lbs will be where I was for a long time and doing ok. Then if I can slowly lose another 20 or so I would be really pleased. I feel fine and healthier and am definitely fitter, did extra strength exercises and 15 minutes on the Orbitrek this morning and another 5 after dinner because I felt like it. Went for a nice hike in the woods, that seems easy exercise to me because its so enjoyable, wish I had a horse to ride too! Hopefully we will get some horses later. I am getting a rebounder off Freecycle and will get back into that 10 mins a day, its much better for me to vary the exercise. I don't know where my weights are for the rebounder though. I think I need to focus on the strength exercises for my stomach next! Child-birth definitely did a number on that and it was always my weak area. Anyhow the main thing I need is patience right now, I have been doing affirmations when I do the Orbitrek too and it helps pass the time too.

Day 7

Sunday, June 24, 2007

Well I did lose another lb or so, amazingly and increased my calories as I was eating under (though maybe not if I measure my portions more accurately!) this week has been good, but the trick is to sustain it I know! I feel thinner and more like my old self then I look in the mirror and wow I am still not there yet! Definitely feel better too and more energy. My hike did not go too well today due to a major 3 year old tantrum and a husband with a blister! Still we hiked for an hour and a half and it was beautiful in the woods. I only put it down for an hour hike as really we did not walk too fast or go too far! Smoothies are delicious again and am getting a lot more fruit in that way. Still working on protein, fiber and calcium and have to explore the joys of beans soon! I definitely lost 4 lbs this week if not 5lbs depending on what mood my scales were in. Phew!

  


Day 6

Sunday, June 24, 2007

Today was uneventful, but I did go grocery shopping and purchased a lot of fruits and vegetables, mostly salads since its summer and I enjoy them. I really did not feel like buying junk or pigging-out or anything. I feel healthier than I was and have more energy and enthusiasm. I ate a little more today as really have not been eating quite enough, though am still working on portion control so maybe I was! Still I know I need to be on the low side of the calorie range, at least until I see how things go and if I am getting results. I am having a hard time getting enough fiber or calcium though which is not good. I will look more at what I need to eat and re-read the article again on fiber too. I did not weigh myself today though, but we did walk 2.2 miles after dinner pushing the bike stroller and child which must weigh 50 lbs at least!
