Day 7, 8, 9, 10 + ChangeOne lunch + declutter :-)

Sunday, April 18, 2010

Forgive the busy title! lol...

Hey guys! Haven't blogged in a while but all is well! I'm still working hard, down about 4.5 lbs since a recent jump in weight for an unknown reason! .5 lbs until I can celebrate and get my first mini-goal gift!

What I'm proud of: I completed 3 strength workouts (like I planned) last week, 7 days of cardio (2 light days), and one day of yoga + one pilates session
I passed on fries at Chick-fil-a and only got the grilled chicken sandwich, I am sticking to the ChangeOne diet and BECK diet solution! And... I'm continuing to re-dedicate myself to eating clean healthy foods. :-)

What I will work on this week:
*continuing to declutter my new apartment. I need to do a yard sale or give away my clothes to good will.
* Bringing Lunch to work all 5 days! My goal for this week is to not add ANY additional salt or sugar to my foods (which means I may have to leave coffee out for a week OR use splenda.)
* 5 days of cardio. 3 days of strength, 1 flexibility/ yoga or pilates
* Journal
* sleep 7 hrs a night.

I'm rushing right now, but I'll be back to fill you all in later!

Today, I spread the spark.

Thursday, March 18, 2010

So as many of know, I am a medical student and my passion is preventing obesity related diseases and getting people to love themselves completely.

I had a patient today who was overwhelmed by her weight and dealing with a young baby and an unsupportive husband. I will not write anymore for security reasons but I suggested to her that she should visit the SPARKPEOPLE website and really begin to get some support in her journey. She was excited and I pointed out that she was worth the time and should spend a little effort MAKING time for herself and her happiness.

See, I spread the spark everywhere I go. I am a bright light in a dark room. lol. Don't come around if you don't want to be encouraged!

    Great job.

You have to admit spark is the fastest easiest simplest way to get someone to lose weight safely as long as they depend more on the official info than on what people say they do!

    I do the same thing. I was in the courthouse and the employees were talking about doing a weight loss challenge emoticon. So, I told the clerk she should consider visiting the website. emoticon and am so encouraged by all of my friends.

    Way to go.

I just found out that my brother is a spark people drop out (I should encourage him to join again). It has done me a world of good...

Keep on sparking.

DAy... 23? lol who's counting!

Thursday, March 04, 2010

So, sometimes you gotta do what's right for you even if people don't understand. And quite honestly... I'm tired of explaining myself! LOL

now that it's off my chest.

Today was a good day, I'm learning more and more how LITTLE you can eat if you eat fried/fast foods. I did good though, since they keep feeding us junky food at school/work in the DR office all day, I am skipping dinner (ate some fruit) just so I can stay in the 1400 range. Will have some tea too. It's late and I'm sleepy so don't realyl feel like I'm missing out

Also jumped on the treadmill for ~ 40 mins burned almost 400 cals. So hopefully i'm making a dent in my energy sttores(aka FAT) LOL

Hope all is well with you guys! And thank you to all the spark people out there!!

    YESSS! I definitely stay away from fast food because I can eat so much MORE when I eat healthy foods! I'm all about quantity. I love the feel of a huge bowl of salad in front of me more than having a 1/4 of a cheeseburger or something. Good for you keeping in your calorie ranges despite the junk food at work! Keep up the great work!!!

    "I'm tired of explaining myself!" I agree. I am learning all you can do is be true to yourself - and bump the rest! Bump it. I am reading way too much into this statement. LOL.

Anyway, I am happy you are figuring ways to make it happen with all the fast food around. That is a feat - for sure.

Keep cranking it out, doc. Cheers.

Still Kicking! [with a picture :-) ]

Monday, March 01, 2010

I took my test on Friday and think it went well though it was very difficult... I went to a school Ball on Friday night.. thought I was going to have a break down because I couldn't find a dress in my closet that fit, but decided it would be more useful to just buy a dress... so I did and it was gorgeous! :-D I looked nice, if I do say so myself. I'll put up a pic. (It should be above!)

Saturday was my sisters birthday, the familiy got together had lots of fun and celebrated my sis's birthday! :-) I was forced to buy a coach purse that was on sale... I really don't like spending money lol!! But it is a nice purse and I think I'm going to love it!

Sunday... I'm trying to move so been doing a lot to get that together... I feel like the ppl are trying to swindle me. I sure hope not... but I'm going to keep my eyes open and will possibly consider moving somewhere else if things don't start looking more legitimate.

Monday: Started a new section in Family Medicine. I like it so far! Have been reading You on a diet. Also going to start a no sugar month. (though I don't like a lot of sugar or candy... I feel like I'm using too much sweetner in my coffee... so I need to remove the sweets from my life.) I do have a piece of cake from my sister's bday that I AM going to eat sometime soon. Oh, and I will still eat fruits (natural sugar).

I'm hoping for a good loss... 8-10 lbs/month until my goal. Going to keep cleaning up my diet until I reach my goal!

Oh AND I just got finished doing an hour of cardio! Doing Jari Love weight training in the a.m.

    I am doing good not eating sweets. I had to totally give up coffee and tea because I had to add Splenda. Other than that, I eat a lot of natural sweets like fruit, so I don't miss the cookies, cake and candy junk. I make an icecream like treat for the kids with frozen fruit in the blender. Believe me, you won't miss the real thing!

    Nice pic you look great. It seems like a lot of swindlers are on the prowl lately especially since the economy is in the tank.

I try to limit my sugar too. I still eat dark chocolate and ice cream.When I want pastries I make them myself so that I can control whats in them. Coffee I usually just use cream or add sugar free hot chocolate, no juice or soda, and I drink unsweetened tea. Once you wane yourself off sugar you start to dislike it. I can't stand sweets they taste gross now.
