Lent starts next week - I need to figure out what I would like to give up

Friday, February 08, 2013

Happy Friday!

So I was reminded that lent starts next Wednesday. I am not a very religious person anymore, but I still like to take up on this tradition. Some people are against those who participate in lent even when they don't go to church regularly - but I still do it for me. I feel like I should do it and I do! One year I gave up chocolate for lent. Another year I gave up cheese. I think I would like to give up some kind of food, but I am not sure if this is what I want to do for lent this year. I gave up french fries & tortilla chips a few times for challenges.

Instead of giving something up for lent, I may add something. I usually give up stuff during the challenges, so maybe I will try something different this year.

Maybe I will give up being grumpy hahaha. I think that is a tough idea, but it would be worth it if that makes any sense! Sometimes when things don't go my way, I get upset and my whole mood turns sour. I don't get mean, but I stop smiling. Maybe I should try working on getting rid of this!

Or maybe I will add something else to my life to include other people. I read somewhere a while ago that someone wrote a letter to someone different every day - or if they couldn't everyday, they just made sure they had 40 letters by the end of lent. I think this is a great idea. I love writing letters. Whenever I fill out birthday/holiday cards, I usually write a lot in them.

On another note, I can't believe it is Friday already! I don't have to work tomorrow, so that is a plus. I would like to fit some exercise in this weekend even though I will barely be home. I signed up for yoga on Tuesday night. I am excited & nervous about it! I didn't get to go to zumba this week because I worked late Monday & Thursday when the classes were. I packed a backpack and I am going to leave it in my car just in case I get out of work next week where I have enough time to get from work directly to zumba! Hopefully I can get there next week! I have 4 pre-paid classes left I would like to use before I find a different location!

Hopefully everyone has a wonderful weekend! Keep pushing toward your Feb goals - even choosing a healthy snack or saying NO to a fattening drink helps!

    I'm not religious and I still do Lent every year. I figure, it's an excuse for ANYONE, including myself, to change up their lives for the better. I've done all the typical stuff like candy, soda, etc. so I'm not really sure what I want to do this year either..

    We were talking about this last night with my step-son. We have only two more days to figure it out. We don't want to pick something that we can't realistically go without, because we don't want to break the promise.

    Can you believe that Lent begins the day before Valentine's Day this year? The Catholic calendar is unpredictable, unless you are clergy or very religious. Have a good weekend, enjoy your workout classes!! emoticon

    Something I learned about Lent last year- it's not just "giving up." It can also be something you add! It's meant to just be a sacrifice to God apparently? That is how my Catholic friend explained it to me.

I just realized... eventually I won't be able to help out in weight loss challenges

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

Happy Wednesday. I was just figuring out how much weight loss 5% would be. Eventually I won't be able to lose 5% more weight! I will have to find challenges that are for maintaining. I am getting closer to my healthy goal weight of 155. I want to lose more weight after that, but eventually I will get to a point where I won't lose more weight! I am not there yet, but the thought just crossed my mind! It is harder to lose weight now because I lost so much so far!

I am hoping to do Zumba tomorrow night if I get out of work on time. It stinks the Zumba class I like starts at 6:30. If I work late, I can't make it! I could probably find another zumba which is later, but the only ones I saw last time I checked had a min of classes you had to sign up for. You had to sign up for X week sessions, and if you missed a class, you wouldn't get reimbursed. So.. we'll see.

I signed up for my first yoga Mixed Level class at a new facility. It was $40 for 10 classes, so I think that was a decent deal. It is a family health center, so I am not sure how it will be. At least it will be good exercise and stretching. They have a few 730pm classes so that should be ok with my late night schedule.

Once I figure out all of the yoga classes I am going to attend, I am going to write in a 5K schedule for me. Putting my exercise schedule on my calendar helps me actually do it! Even if I work late nights, the treadmill is at home so I can use it anytime. I still need to do research to sign up for another 5K. The color run looks interesting, but they didn't post a date yet. It was July last year, so I am guessing it will be also be in July. I saw there is a color run and also a color me rad run. They both have the paint/colors, and they are both in Philadelphia. I really want someone to go with me, because I don't like going into the city by myself. I am not good at parking & I will feel out of place there! There is also a color run in NJ an hour away, so that may be a better choice for me. Where the Philly race will take place is almost an hour away from where I am living right now so... I don't know! I also want to figure out which other 5K races I want to do in the spring after tax season!

Hopefully everyone has a great rest of the week. Keep pushing towards those Feb & long term goals! Every small step counts!

    Kimpy, They told me we can still participate in the 5% challenges and just state we are maintaining. I am not doing the Winter challenge for other reasons, but am missing the chit chat. I still need to figure out just what I should weigh among other things! My goal is perhaps too thin. At any rate, I'm interested in maintenance challenges, if only for another tool in my belt!

    Kimpy, you've done so emoticon at your weight loss. You are one of my main inspirations at Spark here. I know that when you reach goal you may not be pariticpating in the 5% challenges but I am sure Spark has a lot available for those in maintainence too.
When I joined the 5% challenge last fall I joined for the push to loose the lbs. Now I find myself looking forward to the winter challenge because I want to reconnect or journey on with new friends I met last fall.
So I'm sure it'll be different for you leaving behind a community you've come to know but hey, you can forge the way for me and others like you have so far and I plan to join you there some time.

    I am close to goal and 5% will put me 3 pounds BELOW goal--so I may not make it either. There are maintainer challenges--stay at the same weight--they judge "winning" by calculating standard deviation. I'm not ready for that yet! Great price for the yoga classes--I had a deal that expires this month--didn't use all 10 but even the 5-6 I did made it worth it!

Winter 5% Weight Loss Commitment

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

The Winter 5% weight loss challenge is approaching soon. I am in another Sparkteam which has 2 more weighins and one other team has 3 more weighins. The 5% Challenge will be starting in a few weeks. I will be doing the 5% Winter Challenge & I may start back up with Sparking as a team in March - it depends on my schedule.

It has been a while since I wrote up a commitment. I went back to the Fall 5% blog I posted in September & I am going to edit it to fit! I am not sure when this challenge will start, but hopefully I have the time to give my all!

I really want to get 155 by the end of Feb. If I can't do that, I definitely need to change the way I am doing things!

Winter 5% Challenge Commitment:
I will post my weigh-ins every week.
I will track my exercise to help out myself and my team!
I will stay on track with my calories/fat/etc the best I can.
I will try to post more frequently on the forum/team!
I will exercise at least 10 minutes five days a week.
I will exercise at least 30 minutes three days a week.
I will stick to my scheduled exercise - Zumba, yoga & 5K training
I will try new recipes from Spark & will create more batch meals for work
I will try to work on controlling my snacking at night
I will go to bed on nights when I feel tired/ready. I won't stay up late just because.
I will spend some ME time even with my crazy work schedule!
I will do the best I can with the changing weekly challenges!
I will not get discouraged if I do not meet the 5% loss in 8 weeks.

My February Goals

Friday, February 01, 2013

Happy Friday & Happy February everyone!

I felt inspired to post my goals today since a friend asked me about how I lost so much weight. I went over everything I do, and it inspired me to keep pushing forward. I would like to get to 155 by the end of this month. It has been busy at work, so I really need to find time to exercise! I need to make time I think!

I can't believe it is Feb 2013 already! I really would like to get to 155 by the end of the month! I have been working extra hours this week, and I will be working more next week probably! I can't push my goals aside too much because I don't want to give up! I have come so far, and I really think I can get to where I need to be. I just need to actually DO what I want to do!

****Accomplished January Goals****
- Did every weighin & team challenge the best I could!
- Used the measuring tape once
- Tracked my protein & stayed in range most days.
- Tried new recipes
- Figured out how to eat healthier at work for 2 meals
- I did my first attempt at batch cooking. It went pretty well
- Reached my goal of being 158 by Jan 31st
- Signed up for a 5K - April 7th!
- Saved some money
- Stood up for myself & continued to stay positive

****My February Goals****
- Weigh 155 by February 28th - I will be at healthy weight (high end of the BMI)
- Restart my 5K training!
- Continue using the measuring tape at least twice a month
- Keep not eating tortilla chips
- If I eat french fries, try to only eat them once a week
- Sign up for another 5K
- Use the treadmill more!!
- Sign up for my prepaid yoga classes
- Try 4 new healthier Recipes
- Stay committed to the Challenges even during busy season
- Aim for 1,000 fitness minute trophy for February!
- Continue to do non-workout activities I enjoy even if I go alone(craft & pet fairs)
- Try to stay patient with my parents even when they are on the fritz!
- Don't get discouraged if I don't reach all of my goals!

***Ultimate Goals***
- Be at healthy weight (155) by March 1, 2013!
- Be at 100 pounds lost & weigh 150pounds - no deadline
- Complete any 5K in 30 minutes - no deadline

Hopefully everyone has a wonderful day & rest of the week! Have you thought of your February and other goals yet?

First attempt at Batch Cooking - pics

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

Thank you again to everyone who has supported me - your comments make me smile & they help me keep going. I wish I had more time to comment, but I haven't! Everyone is so awesome - I love Spark!

Last night I worked an hour extra for work.. not too bad. I stopped at the food store on the way home and got some food. I was in the mood to cook. Since I have been feeling better, I have been trying to catch up on some of what I missed. I am trying not to over-do it, but I wanted to make some meals for this week. It took me 2 hours from start to finish - not too bad considering how much I made!

I made:
1. Turkey chili with beans, diced tomatoes, carrots, and green peppers.
2. Turkey Kielbasa with Shrimp with brown rice, fresh tomatoes, and green peppers.
3. Baked Whole Wheat Ziti with spinach, FF Cottage Cheese and ground turkey

I think everything came out pretty well! I froze most of the items. I even had some of each things as my dinner for last night. Yum!! Hopefully they turn out ok when I go to eat them again. I would like to try more types of meals I can freeze.. I think I want to try chicken next time. Does anyone have any recipes or ideas they would like to share? I was thinking about trying a slow cooker meal one time. Maybe chicken fajitas another time?

I signed up for another 5K - Sunday April 7th. It is only 5 minutes away from my house and on a Sunday so I couldn't resist! I just need to re-start my 5K training. It was funny - I told my parents I signed up for the 5K & I need to start running again. My Mom said to me " oh Good. I also need to use the treadmill again." My Dad was right next to her and said he needs to do the same thing! I said "Well, whoever starts using it first, needs to push the rest of us to start using it again!!" We all laughed because it is true - we all want to do it, but we can't seem to find that PUSH!





Hopefully everyone has a great rest of the day. My work day is half over already! I had a stressful morning, but I am alright now. I have lunch soon which is good. I am not sure if I am working late or not? Oh well. If I am here late, I am here late! Oh - the one older gentleman who works in my office complimented me today. He said "It still shows that you are losing weight. Keep up the great work." Other people ask if I am still losing weight, but I am glad some people still notice the difference. I really want the healthy weight to be healthy - but looking "better" is a bonus I will take!

Keep pushing toward your January goals! I got my 500 minutes for Jan so I am happy about that. I really wanted 1,000, but I did what I could with my health situation! I really need to push in Feb to be able to reach my healthy goal weight of 155!

I sat down tonight and made up a menu plan for the next two weeks using foods that I have in the house. It feels great to know what we'll be eating. I only need to buy lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and an onion each week for the big salads that we eat for lunches on Monday through Thursday. The preplaning makes it easier to track the food in SP too!

    Well done on the batch cooking! I posted a blog the other day about Green Soup, and it is great for batch cooking. Another thing I like to do is to roast a whole chicken, use it for a dinner and then use the rest for chicken salad (make it with Greek yogurt and you can even add lentils and spice it with curry powder and raisins if you prefer), or chicken soup, or topping for green salads or filling for burritos or plain old leftovers. You could do a turkey breast if you don't like dark meat or dealing with all the bones.

    Very interesting to see the pix and read about your adventures in batch cooking. I have been experimenting with cooking a turkey or a roast so I have meat to make meals with. I belong to a CSA so I have lots of veggies and can then use the meat to make stir frys, salads, sandwiches or soups.
It sounds like you are definitely on the right track to a healthier lifestle and your family is on board with you too. That is awesome. It is very encouraging when other people notice too. Congrats all around and run happy! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    All that food looks great! And if you are motivated to do batch cooking, take advantage of it! It makes meal planning and sticking to your nutrition goals so much easier when you get home late and can take something and just pop it in the microwave or oven.

I'm glad you are finally feeling better and I hope you have a great rest of the week!
