Went shoppng, down two sizes

Tuesday, June 05, 2012

Very excited. Down two sizes and got a great outfit. Also got new bras! Down two inches (not a down a cup size,thank goodness). I was away and walked from my hotel to the convention centre everyday! 15 minutes each way, sometimes twice a day. I used to think that walking from session to session was more than enough exercise. And each day I walked down the three floors of stairs from my room.

One of these things is NOT like the others!

Wednesday, May 30, 2012

Dear people giving me friendly advice on what works for you in your diet.
I have discovered that what works for you, may not work for me.
I need more calories than you because I work out more and I'm fatter than you.
I'm diabetic and I tried to be vegetarian but it just doesn't work out for me. I need meat once a day due to the whole carb thing.
I tried running, it just doesn't work for me. Walking and aquacize does. The jury is still out on weight machines.
Yes milk and yogurt are great but not when I turn into a diarrhea machine!
Oh, and sugar is sugar is sugar, if it is fructose or molasses or honey or corn syrup or white sugar. It all makes my count go up if I have too much.
Thanks for the advice. Love the no cal noodles. (And yes you on the other side, I know they are without nutrition, duh, but they give me some heft to my meal)
I need to work out what works for me. Thanks for the advice.

Stayed within my goal range for 4 days last week

Sunday, May 27, 2012

Last week I stayed within my range for 4 days, which was my goal. It can be hard when I have to eat at events. My exercise was 60 minutes a day, which is fantastic! Off for another 30 minute walk today. We have a festival of music and acting along one of our rail trails today!

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!
