New Plan!

Monday, June 14, 2010

Ok so you all know I've been struggling with eating out lately but making improvements. I have decided on something I believe will really help me stop eating out. I have been doing much better but not good enough! So I have decided if I decide to eat out or really want to, or have a craving to or whatever, more than just a passing thought of course. If I change my mind or resist the temptation then I will put half of the money I would have spent into my savnigs account and use it to buy more dance lessons. Unfortunately, tonight I do have to eat out because I won't be going home until about 9:30 so I will start this tomorrow ^_^ I'm hoping the desire to dance more will be enough to really kick the fast food habit.

    great idea! I found that if you stay away from the fast food for awhile you lose your taste for it.

Really Good Day!

Sunday, June 13, 2010

Ok so nothing super great happened today, but all the same, I really had a good day!

I had to work this morning for my weekend job as a cashier. For some reason i don't know, I was in a really good mood, I just couldn't stop talking lol. I know it wasn't the weather cus it was cloudy and grey all day. Then I came home and had a late lunch, had a shower and got ready to go dancing.

On the way I stopped and bought myself a new scale and a nice surprise tonight when I got home. You see my scale was reading about 330 for months and months and when I went to the gym a few days ago, their scale said 350. So I got new batteries for mine and then it was saying 355 mostly but it wouldn't always work and when it did it was always different. So tonight, when I got my new scale out, it said 348.4. This time too no fluctuations, I tried it several times and it was exactly the same every time. It's got some cool functions too. It does body fat and water percentages and a bone density reading. The body water doesn't want to work though, it says it might not work if I have hard or dry skin on my feet where they touch the sensors and i have calluses all over the ball of my foot from my dancing lol. They just don't want to go away. Anyway so it's good news, my old scale was messed up and I'm lighter than i though I was this morning ^_^ Still heavier than I thought i was last week, but still, I gotta celebrate every little bit lol.

Ok so back on track here, after I picked up the scale I went dancing, we had dinner first of course and I was good and only a very small piece of chicken and took the skin off, which I never do, and a big helping of salad. The veggies were undercooked though, I can't stand hard carrots. Then we had the dancing, and i danced more than usual. There was also a new guy there tonight. He's one of the girls instructors and I think he came to try and get new students lol. He was a very good dancer and he did 3 dances with me, a rumba, a salsa and a quickstep. My first time dancing a quickstep outside of class ^_^ and even though all I did was the basic step it was very exciting. I'm only upset he didn't ask me to a waltz lol, it's my favorite and it's my best dance. I made sure to dance more tonight because I'm really trying to work on my cardio again. I want to be able to dance longer lol.

Even though it wasn't an overly exciting day, it was very enjoyable. I think the dancing was so much fun because I haven't really been doing as much the last couple months and I actually missed the last couple Sunday dances. I'm so glad i found something I still enjoy so much after almost a year. Usually my interest would have waned by now. I'm actually thinking of doing some lessons with this new guy, he was very good but I don't feel i did very well with him. For the rumba he was doing international and I'm learning american right now. Then for the quickstep and the salsa I just haven't learned much yet lol. and of course it's also not always very easy to follow someone until you've danced with them a couple times and you get to know a little bit how they lead and how they dance. I just always feel self conscious so I wanted to do well and so I think I messed up even more by trying so hard to do well lol.

Anyway, I'm going to go ice my knee now, it's a bit sore from dancing so much ^_^ and go to bed because I have to work in the morning.

Night guys!!! have a great week!

Well guys I'm at work right now. I'm still not feeling very well but I am eating a bit again. I had a muffin for breakfast. I'm sooo tired though, I think I need another day in bed, but I have to be here at work. I'm definitely not going to Hapkido tonight.

For some reason when I'm sick I can't drink much water. It's the only time I have trouble. So this time I read online that cranberry juice is easy on the stomach and easily digested. I bought a few jugs of it and I have been drinking it. I know that's a lot of calories if I'm drinking nothing but cranberry juice, but it's better than not drinking at all. So here I am, at work, with a big jug of cranberry juice under my desk, and I'm sipping at it from a coffee mug.

I brought some chicken soup for lunch which I will be having some shortly. I'm just hoping I can finish my stuff and go home early so I can get some more sleep. What sucks though, is that once I am done, I still have to drive for an hour to get home.

Sorry guys, I know I've been complaining a lot about being sick lol.

Hope everyone has a great week ^_^

  I don't know if the article you read said 100% cranberry juice or a cranberry juice blend but be sure to check the ingredients list! A lot of cranberry juices are really an apple/grape/something else with some cranberry thrown in.

Really cranberry juice is 1) EXPENSIVE. I pay $10 for 1 qt. and 2) Very bitter. I usually mix 1/4c in 1L of water because it is that strong of a flavor. YMMV

I hope you start feeling better soon!

    Feel better!!

Make sure you truly are drinking juice! A lot of the cranberries are loaded with sugar and are only 26% juice.

Chicken noodle soup can be very high in sodium too (I can't eat it the normal kind; only sea salt based). Potato based soup (ie potato leek) will help give you nutrition your body needs. I was a chronic juice drinker and souper eater for several months after my surgery (digestive condition) so I have some tips if you want them.

My first whole weekend off, and I'm sick. Of course, if i weren't sick I would have gone to class this morning so it wouldn't have been quite a whole weekend. I think it may be food poisoning because I feel different than every other time Ive had the flu. When Im sick I dont drink water either, I just dont have the desire like normal.

Today Ive been drinking cranberry juice instead because I don't really like ginger ale and I read cranberry juice can be good if your sick because its easy on the digestive system. Im doing good with it so far, at least Im drinking something. Im starting to eat again too.

The mini challenge for Reignite though wont be completed this weekend. I'm not exactly eating enough to have 6 fruits and veggies each day and I cant exercise when I'm sick. If I feel better tomorrow I may go for a swim, that at least isn't too demanding if I take it easy.

I'm hoping with all the bed rest from today Ill be feeling better tomorrow, I'm already improving so it looks good. I have tomorrow off too so I can rest again if need be.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend. Even though I'm sick, at least I'm relaxing lol.
