I went back yeah !!!!

Monday, July 11, 2011

Well this evening I went back to working out,. I did an hour of Zumba. I swam for 20 minutes. I wanted to at least get 30 minutes in the swim.but a little child threw up in the pool so everyone had to get out. I have been away from working out for awhile, using too many excuses. Actually felt good even though it was blazing hot, even with the air conditioner on. I came home & grilled eggplant & squash so good.

Not so good but not so bad after all

Tuesday, July 05, 2011

Today was a tough day at work very busy,at times stressful. I had a healthy lunch today & a very light dinner.I managed to eat a combination of 1 fruit, & 4 vegetable. More than normal. I only had 2 glasses of water. I need to get on with that. I did not get a chance to really work out just a 10 min walk. I had a family matter that took that away . I could have done a lot better, but I am starting out good. The stress I had today due to work & the family issue today, I did not allow it to let myself eat endlessly as I usually do. So I guess I can say after all it was really not so bad when I could have really over indulged. Tomorrow is another day where I shall do my best to add one more fruit, one more vegetable & a better & more work out.

    It sounds like you had some good choices in spite of the day. emoticon

I thought I would have a huge problem getting enough water when I started, then I started trying to get a certain amount before I left for work, then before lunch...that seemed to help.

I was beat up guess who did the bashing?

Monday, July 04, 2011

Oh my what we do & say in the time of day. Okay you read what I posted this morning. This is what went on the rest of the day. My husband & I packed up the motorcycle with picnic food, went to a beautiful park along the water,enjoyed the time. Arrived home & I alone ate all the picnic food up never had to put it away. I felt like a turkey on Thanksgiving day I know if you put a pin in me feathers would have spewed forth. I sat there in my chair reeling with disgust with what I did for several hours. I finally got up & went on a 4 mile walk, had no intentions of walking that far because it is so hot out. Well the first 2 miles I beat my self up I passed a water hole & if I did not duck the upper cut from the inner me bashing myself I would have fallen flat in the water. On the way back the last 2 miles I listened to my surroundings I listened to the sounds of the singing birds if we had no music we could listen to their sweet singing, the shadows from the sun starting to go down, cast shadows among the trees & over the meadows of flowers & it seemed to look like a golden glow. If we had no artist we have God as our artist I seen the setting sun casting a shadow on me making my silhouette look tall & slender. I wanted to jump inside my shadow & be tall & slender. Then I heard the sound of my breathing, knowing God gave me my breath as he did the birds & his design of the beauty of the flowers the sunset etc.. I live in this vessel of a body & mind & I am not taking care of what I have been given. I came back home & reading my Sparks book about taking the fast break check I will be taking smaller bites of everything I intend to set for my new goals. I weigh 151 pounds. I will blog every day to be accountable for what I do. I feel so good since that walk. I took a cool shower drank 2 glasses of ice water, & feel clear in my head

    That's exactly what I have done so many times. I love to walk, and many days the first part of it is spent thinking about things that upset me, things I need to do or should have done, etc. Like you, though, after awhile, I do begin to settle and look at what is around me and listen to the sounds, even in town.

Thank you for your post!

    my hubby walks at night and i know he beats on himself and then relaxes on the way back. on rainy days when he does not walk he is harder on himself and i try to be a positive reflection so he can feel better.

    It is good that you recognized your trip up with eating all that food, but it's GREAT that instead of saying 'forget it' because of the mishap (like I have done on many occasions) you got up and did something about it! Kudos to you! Also glad you were able to enjoy the nature on your 2 mile return. Blogging everyday is a good way to stay accountable. I bet you felt amazing after your walk. Great job! May the scale reflect your hard work!

Cape Hatteras I will meet you at the ocean edge!!!!!

Monday, July 04, 2011

I talked to my husband this morning as we were walking , I told him how disgusted I am with my self about not losing weight. We always go to Cape Hatteras on the Outer Banks in North Carolina . We have not been there for 3 years due to my Mom having knee replacement, & my step Dad being sick,, & I did not want to leave them. We made plans to go next year, so I had mentioned to my husband I want to lose 20 pounds before we go as my goal set. So he suggested as my goal if I do not lose the 20 pounds by next year we do not go. That has sent my mind racing . Now I must do this. I have been a big lax on exercising. I need to go back I have made all kinds of good sounding excuses that sure sound good at the time. So the good walk this morning & the talk we had as encouraged me to fight this big SLUMP I am in. ( Karen help ) I really really want this trip next year.
I am going to feel the sand between my toes, watching the early morning sun peeking up over the ocean horizon. In the early morning hours I will take my chair near the waters edge & dip my feet in so the ocean washes over them, while reading a good book with the breeze of the ocean sweeping back my hair. I want to hear the sea gulls giving out wake up calls, & watching them swirl above me doing their waltz. I want to smell the salty air. I want to pick seashells & chase sand crabs as they scurry into their homes. I want the sun to slightly kiss my cheeks so I have a rosy glow. I want the sea grasses touching my legs as I climb the sand dune. I want to lay on the beach at night watching the light house sweeping across the dark waters. When it is time to leave my paradise I will be going with a few sprinkles of sand in my shoes, my sun kissed cheeks & memories to tide me over the cold winter months to come. I will meet my goal to dip my feet into the ocean edge.

  


I've been had on lemonade!!!!!!!

Tuesday, June 28, 2011

Our KFC folded up in our town, so my Mom wanted to go there for dinner tonight in another town. I had grilled chicken, cole slaw, & lemonade, dang I came home & looked up the calorie count on lemonade> A whole rounded number of 200 calories. Even though I stayed in range of my calories I was not happy with this. From now on before I go out I will scan the nutrition brochure of the restaurant.
On a lighter note I had my hair highlighted today & that was a nice booster for me, I like it made me feel better,now in 4 weeks I will get my hair permed. I like the curls so I can just wet it from the shower scrunch it & I am done. Evening is now drawing in & I am happy about how the day went for my eating. I could have had a bucket of chicken, extra crispy, but ordered the two grilled small pieces. NO MORE KFC LEMONADE!!! I actually ordered it because I thought there was barely any calories in it.

    I think it should be mandatory that if a place sells food, then all ingredients and nutritional information should be available. Too many people are allergic to so much these days that having that information could be lifesaving. As to the nutritional information, if a place doesn't have it available, I don't go back. It's that simple.

    I like it when the nutrition information is available. KFC is a difficult place to eat at since most of their selections tend to be a little high in fat.
