Foods I can't have in the house, but hubby wants them.

Thursday, May 24, 2012

I found a solution to the chips in the house problem. If my husband buys a bag of chips or Doritos, he only eats half the bag. Then it is waving at me from the cupboard. I talked to him about no chips in the house, but he felt deprived.
Instead, I went to the convenience store and picked up a snack size of chips. This size was bigger than the tiny bags but not as big as a regular bag of chips. It was actually the amount he eats. I gave it to him to try during his hockey game.
It worked! He was happy.
No leftovers to tempt me.

Gaining not the end of the world

Saturday, May 19, 2012

So I gained weight this week but I'm actually not devastated. Why? I've been tracking my food and can see where I went wrong. Measure the oil I put in the pan or use spray. Eat so I don't get over hungry. Eating out, even with good stuff is still very difficult. And it raises the salt. I have to eat at functions that only have wraps with hidden calorie mayo for instance. One day I just took my own lunch and it worked much better.
I've ordered some low cal noodles and sauces to eat.
Also I am proud of my exercise. Went for a consult at the YMCA and will be starting (slowly) with strength training. Walked the dog, aquafit. Won a minutes trophy.
So I carry on getting healthy.

    Good for you! One step at a time is a good thing! Taking it slowly allows you to adapt to the lifestyle change and you are more likely to stick with it!

Going over

Saturday, May 12, 2012

Instead of not writing down when I go over or feeling depressed, I am looking at my food intake to see where the trouble is. Today, I found it with 2 tablespoons of olive oil in the stir fry. The other day it was whole wheat tea biscuits with raisins. Both of those foods are OK. But not in the quantity I had them.
Trudging along

Lost 10 pounds, what a difference

Wednesday, May 09, 2012

On my trip to China and getting a cold after led to me losing 10 pounds. What a difference!
My sugar is three points lower, basically normal in the morning. Going up stairs is easier (All that stair climbing China also)
But I still feel my weight dragging me down. So working hard on recording my food and exercise on Sparkpeople. Don't want to gain this weight back!
Actually chose a half bagel rather than a full one this morning at a breakfast meeting!
Go me.

Now almost vegan due to milk and egg sensitivies. But still not losing weight. Got to get back on the exercise trail, winter stops the walking. Have to work on portion sizes. Off we go again.
