So, last night was a night where my appetite fluctuated all over the place. I ended up eating a small slice of cheesecake from Walmart and surprisingly, the one time I don't go over my calories is yesterday. How is that possible when I ate cheesecake? I'm not quite getting this calorie thing.

    One of the good things about tracking is that over a relatively short time period, you can use it to identify which foods are using up your calorie budget on a regular basis. Years ago, through tracking, I realized that I was eating most of my calories for the day before 8am! How? By drinking two big glasses of orange juice as I sat working at my computer. Like, 20oz tumblers. (OJ is supposed to be good for you, right?) It was like 800 calories of pure sugar before I even started the day. And then I would have cereal, in a huge bowl—raisin bran or Total or something. Not terrible in itself, but if you eat three cups of it with milk? And then I would be hungry again in a couple hours, because all that sugar wasn't satisfying me.

Cheesecake at least has fat and protein, which while the fat is more than you might want to eat every single day, at least it's satisfying. I'd say today, I'd choose the cheesecake over the OJ every time.

The weekend!

Monday, November 11, 2013

All I can say is that I screwed up this entire weekend. Didn't eat anything I should, didn't exercise and no water. Well, I did walk the beach a little yesterday.

When I began working on losing weight last year, I was using a product to help control cravings. I'm not doing that this time and it seems so much harder. Is it possible to do this without the extra help? I don't want to depend on products that I have to spend mass amounts of money on for the rest of my life.

I just want to be healthy. Is that so hard? Seems so. But, I'm not giving up!!!


Calories, Calories everywhere! Oh my!

This week has been hard! I just can't seem to get these calories right. I'm hungry all the time and I blow my calories. I think I'm eating right but these calories. MAN!!!!! UGH! Next week I hope will be better.

    When you think you're hungry, go do something else. Like sweep a floor. Or scrub the tub. Sometimes, just getting involved in some other activity helps you "forget" that you're hungry.

Boot Camp

Wednesday, November 06, 2013

After destroying my calories yesterday, I started bootcamp this morning. I admit that I was filled with fear. I haven't worked out in so long. I know I've gained back the weight I lost. I've been short of breath and my pressure has been up. All excuses I told myself so that I wouldn't do it.

I'm proud to say that none of that stopped me. I went and the trainers said do everything at your own pace. I really surprised myself. Most of the activities I could do. I even ran. Now, that's something I've never done and said that I would never do. Shocked I am!!! I didn't stop until the last minute. For my first time I think I did great. I hurt but my core is going to strengthen and in 6 months I'm going to look amazing.

I'm so excited! Let's go on this journey! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You can do it! If you are craving something sweet, try fruit. Sometimes, I find that when I am craving sweets, I am actually dehydrated and need water. Hang in there!
