made some good choices today

Friday, January 11, 2008

So, my husband decided to get Mexican food for supper tonight. I wasn't realy happy with him to start with, but I decided to make the best of it. Since he picked it up I could make some substitutions and still get the "meal" I wanted. We got fajitas, so I used a La Tortilla Factory tortilla istead of what the resturant sent, Tostitos Light chips instead of the chips they sent and I just ate the rice instead of the rice and beans(they were refried so I figured they were probably cooked in lard). All of the things I ate weren't exactly GOOD for me, but they were better choices than I could have made. I'll take that and call it a good day!

    One of my favorite things to get at a mexican resturaunt is "Tortilla soup"....its usually pretty low on the calories too. :o) Here is the muffin recipe I love: Here is the muffin recipe: "Six Week Muffins" 2 Cups boiling water, 5 Cups bran, 5 Cups whole wheat flour, 5 tsp baking soda, 2 tsp cinnamon, 1 1/2 tsp salt, 1 Cup wheat germ, 1 Cup oil, 1 Cup honey, 4 eggs (beaten), 4 Cups buttermilk....Pour boiling water over 2 cups of bran in large bowl; let stand for several minutes. Sift flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt together (I never sift...I just stir it together). Add wheat germ and remaning 3 cups bran. Add to wet bran, stirring until moistened. Stir in oil, honey, eggs, buttermilk and fruit. Spoon into greased muffin cups (I use an ice cream scoop to do that), filling 2/3 full. Bake at 400 for 15 to 20 minutes or until muffins test done. Store in refrigerator and use as needed. May substitute brown sugar or molasses for honey and add 1/2 cup dates, raisins or chapped apple (or many other types of things). Yield 48 servings. Approx calories per serving: 139.

Valentine's Day Weightloss Goal

I am setting a weightloss goal of 5 pounds by Valentine's Day. That's about 1 pound a week -- totally acheivable! I would go higher, but I don't want to dissapoint myself. I know I can do 5 pounds. If I reach it before, I'll up my goal!

Starting weight - 141
Goal Weight - 136

If anyone wants to join me feel free!

Are you at all interested in Making the Cut stuff? I bet the workouts and eating clean would give you great results:) Just a thought....

    I'm with you on this one. My goal is more weight loss than 5 lbs though- not sure how many- I'm scared to step back on the scale and see what I gained during the holidays. I've decided to update my ticker tonight after I work out. I want to be down to 170 by Valentine's Day though. Good luck on your goals!!! We can do it!!!!

doing better

Friday, January 04, 2008

I am starting to get back on track. My calories have been in the correct range for the past week. I plan on this being my best year yet! I'm turning 30 in April and being at my goal weight by then would be great!


Went home, gained weight, back on track

Tuesday, January 01, 2008

I went home this weekend and didn't track a single thing! Big mistake. I got on the scales this morning and I had gained -- are you ready for this? 6 pounds!!!!!! AHHHHHHHH 6 pounds in a single weekend. I didn't think I was eating that bad, but I guess I was. I think a lot of it could be water because I know I didn't drink nearly enough, and my sodium intake was far too high, but that couldn't be more than a couple of pounds. The rest is pure weight -- not muscle, fat and waste! (Sorry for the TMI). Luckily today is the first day of 2008 and the first day of the new me. I now see what not tracking does to me, so I will be doing that everyday that I am able. My goal is to be 120 or 125 by April 19 when I turn 30. I know I can do it, I just have to stay consitant.

I can also say that eating things I normally wouldn't since I started SP takes a toll on me. I have had headaches, a bloated feeling, my eyes feel swollen, my neck and shoulders hurt, and I just have a general fatigue feeling. I have learned my lesson!

I am going to enter my new weight on my tracker and take the walk of shame that it will cause. I think letting other people know will kick me into gear. How embarrassing!

Thinking about Resetting Goals

Thursday, December 27, 2007

So, on Spark there is a link to reset your goals. I am thinking about doing that. I was so good at tracking for the 1st 4 months, and I have just been so slacking lately. I think that maybe if I reset it's like starting with a clean slate. I will regret losing all of my information from when I was so good, but then I don't have the bad weeks hanging over me. Have any of you done this? Do you regret it? I would love to hear from those who have done so.

Here's to a new me in 2008!

    I have reset my goals many times. You don't lose any food or exercises saved as favorittes, you just lose what you've tracked in your tracker.

I didn't reset my goals the day after Christmas -- I clicked the link that says Change you Goals. It does the same thing as resetting your goals, but it doesn't wipe away your trackers. It even gives you an option for chaning your startinbg day. If I were you, I would change your goals, not reset them. Having your trackers is a good thing -- you can go back and see what worked for you and what didn't.

And, here's to a new you in 2008!!!!
