I don't know why it's clicking this time but it is

Thursday, September 18, 2014

Ever since going to the nutritionist things just seem to be clicking for me and it's really showing on the scale, my will power has been amazing so far (don't want to jinx myself) but this is like when I was losing weight back in the old days when I was single. I haven't put any kind of sugar or junk in my mouth nothing nada in my mouth since the nutritionist. Nothing has tempted me even seeing the hubby and son eating chocolate chip cookies or cheddar popcorn and she did say I could have little cheats but for some reason I don't want them and most of all I'M NOT CRAVING THEM SO FAR THAT'S THE BIGGY.
Instead I'm looking forward to my breakfast which has been 2 pieces of turkey slice meat in the morning between toast , god that's what I'm craving in the morning she said how important it is to have that protein at every meal and that's what I've found to be very important. I also have a half a cup of cranberry juice and it makes me happy hahaha go figure hahaha, something has clicked this time maybe I want it more maybe I know I have to go on the scale and face someone October 14th and face someone and have to answer to her I don't know what it is but I'm happy that it's working so far.

    That's what happened to me this time, it just clicked! The other motivator was a good weigh at the doctor's office. I wanted to prove I could continue! I hope it works out like that for you! Getting in the habits now will help you stay on track through the holidays!!

lost 5 lbs since going to the nutritionist last week

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

well didn't get to go to any of my testing yesterday I woke up in such pain yesterday had to cancel everything and rescheduled for next week late in the afternoon. Stepped on the scale today and I've lost 5 lbs since going to the nutritionist last Monday. YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm pretty proud of myself and hopefully something clicked this time and the success will continue I'm hoping so at least we'll see.
Yesterday I made pasta and since I can only have very little pasta (which I love) and use to be a main meal I decided to take part of the 93% lean beef and put it on a baked potato with salsa and plenty of veggies, you know I didn't even feel deprived because I knew it was better for me and my hubby and son enjoyed it so much (pasta) it made me feel good making it for them. Hubby said OMG this is so good, I filled his plate up with part veggies on one side like the nutritionist suggested for me to do if I wanted pasta, he said isn't it? I said I don't know I didn't have any, he said you didn't? I said no I didn't want to tease myself hahaha so I just had a baked potato instead, he said wow I'm so proud of you, I was proud of me to.

Well tomorrow I have several tests I have to have done the dreaded mammo and ultrasound on my throat to monitor a nodule that they found a few years back and blood work emoticon all that and hubby will be running on empty and I'll need him for support.
Wish me luck on that ultra sound that's the one I'm a little worried about out of all of them. Today was a tough day in some severe pain today but it's been so chilly!!!!!!!!!! BRRRRRR it's getting to be that time of the year, god I wish we could skip fall and winter this is the time of the year my body takes a beaten....
Hope everyone had a great weekend!

    I have my mammogram near end of month. They don't bother me, only when the sqeeze the side. I hope all goes well as 3 or 4 years ago they saw a shadow but then nothing the next year, then here they only do it every 2 years after 50. so this year is a go. But I too have busy times as 22nd physio, 23 dentist , 24 mamo... and before that one trip we have to take dad to dr, and then we want to take him to PEI to see our old house etc. then we want to go away with our new truck that will finally pull our 5th wheel for 3 days. then dad has dr apt the day we get back.......
But all is well, I am tying to think positive while I sit here and suddenly get elec. shocks on outer area of knee and top of my foot. Rest seems to be not too bad this eve.

Hope your tests are fine and not hard. I love fall, but oh so hate winter......... I am not minding my pain too bad cos have all the meds for sciatica which help some with reg. pain.

Breakfast has been my big dilemma

Saturday, September 13, 2014

I'm use to having a protein shake in the morning but she wants me to chew, so I had a yogurt the other day and OMG sick to my stomach not sure why but haven't had one since in the morning not sure if a little bug was going around because son was like that Thursday very next day and had to stay home from school it was like a squeezing of the stomach and continuous running to the bathroom but haven't touched the yogurt since.
So she said I can have heart healthy deli so we get the oven roasted turkey and I remember her saying that your body doesn't care what you have for breakfast really as long as you're having a protein and grain, dairy. So this morning had toasted wheat bread with 2 slices of the turkey and slice of cheese with half of cup of cranberry juice. The only time I drink anything other then water so.
This afternoon I had left over honey mustard chicken in a wrap with 4 cut strawberries, let me tell you that honey mustard chicken salad is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I got the recipe on the chew the other day and OMG so delicious!
I substituted the mayo for greek yogurt and it was so easy to make here's the recipe if any of you want to try it:

6 tablespoons Honey
2 tablespoons Yellow Mustard
2 teaspoons Glazed Balsamic
1/2 cup Mayonnaise
1 large or 2 Small Rotisserie Chickens
1/2 cup Toasted Pecans (Roughly Chopped)
1 cup Golden Raisins
1/2 cup Fresh Chopped Poblano Peppers
1/3 cup Chopped Red Onion
2 heads Boston Bibb Lettuce
2 Tomatoes (Sliced)

I only used half the chicken and so I cut all the ingredients in half and I didn't use pecans or Raisins in mine, we just don't care for that.
It made quite a bit using just half the chicken I was shocked, I made it because I told the nutritionist that I can't always cook because of the way I feel so I made this because I'd be set for a few days with lunches that way I wouldn't have to depend on the frozen dinners as she wants me to try and cut down on those, so I'm trying. So far have only had one since I saw her on Monday.
Today going to buy some banana's and pistachios as she wants me to have potassium and nuts. I hope all my spark friends are doing well and have a wonderful weekend!

Saw the nutritionist

Friday, September 12, 2014

Well I saw the nutritionist the other day, was with her for about an hour and a half, go back in a month or so. She opened my eyes about a few things, she put my calorie intake at 1500 I had it at between 1500 to 1600 so mine more leaning towards the 1600...
She opened my eyes to a few things I mean when I was making the whole pasta I was making it as a main meal she said make it as a side with veggies...
Also instead of making the chicken noodle soup make it with barley even if the noodles were whole wheat so I made soup yesterday and hey who knew we like barley hahahaha although my son was missing the noodles and hubby.
Today made honey mustard chicken salad and instead of bread or a wrap I used lettuce to wrap it up in and OMG hubby actually ate chopped up tomato!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
She knows I have trouble exercising and so she said what ever you can do when you can do it will be a bonus. She said to text her anytime that she's my support and she told me about grilled zucchini on the grill with olive oil and parm cheese on it so going to try it I have never even tried zucchini hahaha so we'll see.
She pointed out somethings I was messing up on so I'm hopeful to see how this will help me in the long run. I think I made a good choice seeing her and not going to weight watchers, I got to talk to her one on one and I wouldn't of been able to do that at weight watchers, so....
She gave me a bunch of papers to read have read them all and will be looking through them again for more tips. She even took the time to do some research on Fibro which I thought was really nice of her. All in all it was a nice experience

    So glad and I am glad you went to her rather than WW. Yes they can bbe good too but you don't get the same info and help and no not privately. Glad you are going back and hope you start figuring some stuff out too!

    You sound happier Sharon and that is a good thing.

Zucchini are like a cucumber or a very small marrow. They are mainly water and low in cals. I don't use them a lot but there are not bad.

    It sounds great I am so glad you like her it sounds like you will learn a lot from her.

I think I should work on getting my calories to about 1500-1600 too.

I can not believe you have not had grilled zucchini before.... we live on it all summer at my house. You will love it.
I wish you lived near me so I could share mine with you. Just a couple plants in the garden give us 2 or 3 a day.
