Finally feeling well!!!

Friday, February 27, 2009

Well after getting sick with Bronchitis and being sick for over 7 weeks I'm happy to say I am feeling alot better. I am back to routines and yes it is still easy and i'm eating all sorts of stuff. While on predosone I gained quite a bit of weight then lost it all within a week and now I have been maintaining but this week i started journaling my food and measuring I expect a nice lose by the time I go to TOPS!! I know I can do this and keeping my portions in check is what is needed. I still have desserts just small ones like cheesecakes bits for 100 calories or 100 calorie cake. I have been preplanning my meals each day before I got to bed and it's been working. I had a breakfast burrito which was about 200 calories and a glass of OJ for lunch i had chicken noodle soup and a ham sandwich on lite bread with jello for snacks applesauce and bananas. Drinking my water and i'm just about weened off regular pop. i got these 12 oz pepsi's and i'm drink half of one daily and today didn't want one. just drank water. I won't depreieve but i won't binge anymore on stuff. I know I have to practice a little more self control.

Well onward and need to get to bed.

OMG this has been so easy so far

I have been eating six mini meals a day....


Example:

Bean & Cheese Burrito - Veggie beans & non fat cheese 180 Calories
OJ

hummus & asparagas taco (low carb wheat torilla) 130 Calories each twice a day for snacks

Lunch---I just did a healthy choice meal with veggies, fruits and s/f jello.

Lots of water!!!

For dinner I got mini frozen meatballs 6 of them 240 cals with half a cup of Ragu spaghetti sauce on a roll... with parm cheese... Loved it. Easy and haven't felt deprieved.

One little bitsize square-cheesecake 100 cals.

I found a way to make it work and still feel satisfield. I am excited because i'm not eating just diet food it is reasonable but I am counting everything out and tracking everything I put in my mouth.

Exercise made it fun.... website that keeps track of your mintues and your are on a trail...... www.americaonthemove.org.

WOOHOO!!! Feeling proud, small baby steps, gradually doing it. :)

    Here' a trick I just discovered:

If I count out, say, 5 Doritos, then break each one into three small piece, they are really fun to dip that way. I like salsa and Tillamook nonfat sour cream. Anyhow, since it's the dipping and biting that is so satisfying, I get three times the satisfaction this way.

Works with Wheat Thins, too. Sort of. It's still really dangerous for me to open a box of those! With the crackers, I like little shreds of deli ham, tiny squares of cheese, or nonfat cream cheese.

Oh, and here's a great mini-dessert: half a banana, split lengthwise, with a half-cup of chocolate Dreyers Grand Lite (or Super-Churned, or whatever they call it now). French Silk is my fav. 150-200 calories, a slim and nutritious treat.

Hey, maybe I should start a new thread on this stuff. How 'bout, "Favorite Things"?

P.S. Don't know why that posted twice.
P.P.S. Baby Steps. I loved "What About Bob!"

    We have a one-pop limit in our house, too. I often even skip that much, and it's always diet when I indulge. I like diet 7-up with diet cranberry juice.

The fries were harder to give up!
