Cheat day! And I don't care!

Friday, January 10, 2014

Today at work was a potluck game day tailgate/ birthday party! I have been spot on with my food tracker all week. I declared today cheat day!! Had a fabulous snacky lunch followed by cake and ice cream. Hot chocolate with ready whip was served in the afternoon. I was honest on my tracker and it came to almost a 3000 calorie day with the hot chocolate being the highest calorie item! My stomach has not been stuffed in seven days and today I stuffed it and I did not like the feeling. I moaned and groaned and was tired but at the end of the day I made myself go to the gym and do my workout anyways! I am happy and content and don't feel guilty at all! Looking foward to Week 2 dilligently sparking!

    The treats we allow ourselves give us the incentive to stick with our plan. Going to the gym was an affirmation that the plan is important to you. We don't go out to eat very often but my husband is a great cook with NO diet limitations. He never sticks to a recipe--there are always hidden calories!!! Most days are emoticon a challenge to stay ahead of the calorie in vs calories expended!!

    You go, girl!! LOL..My VERY first day back on Spark, and my husband made reservations for dinner. No one has ever done that for me, and he took me to one of my favorite restaurants. I spent the morning looking at the menu and nutritional info, but ended up having more starches than I should have, but left comfortably full, not stuffed. I enjoyed a wonderful, romantic evening alone with my amazing husband, tracked what I had, and moved along. I think that is just what we have to do sometimes, and we can't let that defeat us! For me, just seeing it on my tracker was taking ownership of it, and it didn't kill me. Thanks for sharing and congrats on going to the gym anyway.

I still believe in my last blog post even though it was from last March! Just hate that I keep sabotaging myself but I have done this enough to recognize when I am doing it! I don't plan to be stranger to sparkpeople this year! It is also the year I turn forty and my goals is to lose a considerable amount by then maybe not all by March 26th! I wanna be forty and fit and lean in 2014!!

    Jannervic this is my encouragement. Forty, fit and lean in 14. Sort of has a rhyme!!! But larger vision than that, forty, fit and lean for life. I am several years over 60 and I (athletic as I was back then) remember laughing at my mom as she exercised with Jack LaLaine in the early 60's. I understand her reasoning more and more as I age.
Her philosophy was exercise or pills--she chose exercise to within a week of her passing. That's my strategy too! I get lost in my day's business but I push for walking if I can't get more serious. Make yourself a priority. emoticon

Calm down and buckle down...

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

We just finished up the biggest loser season. Congrats to Dannie for winning!! I watched it last season but this season became inspirational for me. It made me want it! It made me want to be more active and be more healthy! It made me want to feel good about myself. In a world where we want instant gratifications and results, it is just not going to happen with weight loss. For those who followed, the season started in Jan. and ran thru Mar. That was roughly 9 weeks. These people were at a place where nutritional food was provided and trainers working them out God knows how many hours in a day! They were there to eat sleep breathe weight loss. IT STILL TOOK THEM 9 WEEKS TO REACH THEIR GOALS! We saw them killing themselves the first couple of weeks not showing much results. I am in my second week and I am wanting to see my results now! I have to realize that wanting that instant gratification is setting me up for disappointment and downfall. I think the contestants were a good four weeks before you started to see them change. So that's why I say calm down and buckle down because I am in for the long haul this time!And I tell ya the
iphone spark app has made all the difference in the world at logging my food and exercise! Even though it has only been a week and a half I have seen some subtle results and I cherish. them! Cant wait for more but I am going to have to wait! Here's to a new future! emoticon


Epic Fail on breakfast...

Saturday, March 16, 2013

I was trying the English muffin cut in half with a thin (and I mean thin) slice of onion and egg on top bake in oven to toast and cook egg! Plan to top with a sprinkle of cheddar. Here's the fail. Cooked egg too long! Looked pretty but it cooked thru and when I touch it it was like Plastic!! So peeled off the egg/plastic it was softer underneath and ate it any way:( I would have enjoyed it more if it had an over easy quality. Lesson learn it does not long at all to cook an egg in oven!! Here's to hoping rest of meals go better today!!!!!

I pay some one for this..?!

Monday, March 11, 2013

I cant believe I pay someone to torture me!! I have done my third work out at 9 rounds. Unfortunately, it has been a month since the last workout! I am not going to lie those exercises are hard!! Muscle failure happens very quickly! I had been away because my father in law became seriously ill and a months stay in the hospitol and then I got the flu! It took all I could do to walk back in to 9 round this evening but I did. The workout it self is torture but I survived! I wanna be back on sparkpeople to keep me determined and track my food. So I'm back!
