Jenny Craig Jumpstart

Thursday, May 05, 2011

For some people the 'do it yourself' works. For others the Jenny Craig Jumpstart work even better. I signed up today for a month of delivery at home to get myself on the proper track and already losing weight, then I will be better able to handle it myself.

The most important thing right now is to see results and start practicising what I have been thinking about. I also get expert counseling every week too and coaching when I need it.

Its time to get serious about this if you just can't do it yourself.


Maximized Living Nutrition Plan book

Friday, February 25, 2011

Thanks, from everyone. I appreciate the feedback.

I just bought a book called Maximized Lliving Nutrition Plans by Dr. B. J. Hardick. My sister turned me onto it, It has a Core and Advanced Plan and recipes. The Advanced Plan is all about eliminating the buildup in your body by literally removing Grains, most Fruits and excess Protein from your diet for two weeks. Its completely safe and very sensible once you start reading it and there is still a ton of stuff you can still eat. Once started, this diet drops weight and toxic buildup in your body and allows your body to heal and its just 2 weeks long. I have to do more reading but from what I have read, I am going to do it. This is a book I would recommend to everyone.

  This is not a diet and yes you can drop about 10 pounds during the first 2 weeks. It is a lifestyle and does not heal your body in 2 weeks but over time. My son and I are patients of Dr BJ and have been following the Maximized Living principles for 1 1/2 years.

Today Is My First Day!

Friday, February 25, 2011

Although I started on Feb 16th I have really just been playing at it. Its been a half-hearted, non-serious venture until today when I decided it was time to get serious and make some results happen. I've been learning the site, finding my way around in it, logging my meals and exercises, blogging and so forth but I have also been snacking on the worst kinds of carbs and overeating carbs at meals. That too is stopping as of today. I'm working not just on creating new habits here but on my motivation and momentum for the coming weeks.

My Almost 4 Mile Walk

Friday, February 25, 2011

I don't think people realize that one mile is not really that long. I created a walk route in spark; I plug in the amount of minutes I walked and the plot the route into the map and my little one hour walk into town was 3.86 miles long at a walking speed of 3.9 mph with 348 calories burned. Believe me, if I can do this, you can! I am still doing my 12 reps up and down the stairs too.

    I love the map tracker and always use it to figure out how far I've gone I also wear a pedometer to measure my steps and I have a wristwatch called a MIO that will calculate how many calories I burn while walking or exercising. These tools are great!

Experiment Day

Friday, February 25, 2011

I changed my quick start goals because the other ones weren't working. How do goals not work? Do they not have the 'right' words or convey the 'right' meaning? I have noticed that if my goals do not FIT exactly with what I am trying to accomplish, right up to the very minute, they don't work so well for me; especially if its a daily goal I am trying to achieve on a daily basis.

Frankly, not eating mindlessly in the evenings is much to vague a goal to do the job of motivating me and providing the momentum I need. I have been snacking on the wrong things in the evenings because that's what my hubby does and he does it while watching a movie. That's the way we've always done it. Yet, I can't deprive him just because I am dieting. He is very lean for his age group and can lose weight at the drop of a hat.

This calls for a new strategy. Easter being around the corner, I bought some chocolate eggs and bunnies for him. Now I will ask him to take them and hide them in the basement somewhere that only he knows about. Out of sight (and can't find), out of mind. When I bake it will be something I can have. As for today, I am experimenting with making my meals 90% vegetable (cooked or raw), 10% protein and 10% carb with my own snack at the end of it, like calorie reduced jello. I am trying to wrap my head around changing the very structure of my meals to where vegetables are the main course and meat/carbs are the side dishes.

I have to go to the bank today and I think I will walk. Yesterday's walk didn't happen! I'm pushing up my 10 minutes to 20 when it comes to the stairs - 4 reps of 12 each! Another thing with the walks, I use a pedometer and I walk fast!! If this is going to work, I have to put a more serious effort into it and take it seriously each day. I make myself accountable for my actions and attitudes of today.
