Been awhile

Sunday, April 26, 2009

It has been awhile since I posted a blog so I thought I would write things down about what has been going on. I have been staying on track pretty well with my eating. It has actually gotten easier to pick the better things to eat. I have stopped craving sugary foods except for maybe "that time of month" ;). I still have a problem on making the best choices when I eat out. I am still learning about all the hidden things like SAUCE. I now will always get the sandwiches without sauce. Did you know that a KFC Tender Roast with sauce is 390 calories and without the sauce is only 177!?! Unbelievable!
As far as exercising I am walking for about 6 days a week I am seeing a one pound week for the last four weeks but I want to do strength training. I have done nothing really at all. I think maybe yoga or weights or something like that. I am trying to talk my hubby into getting a gym membership and take some classes and maybe talk to a personal trainer. We will see what comes of it.
Everything is going well even though I am slightly off track of my goals weight at this time. I can live with that. I know I will get there!
So how are you doing??

  You have no idea how happy I am to learn how many calories is in that sandwich after no sauce!! I absolutely love the tender roast sandwich and have been avoiding it at ALL cost, now I don't have to!!

My husband got us a membership at the YMCA when he came home and found me crying about my weight. I am telling you (especially if you have any kids?) the price you pay for a membership at the Y is well worth the cost. I am currently enrolled in 7 classes/week, 5 of which are free (free doesn't mean easy!! they work my butt off!!). I pay $53/month and my son and daughter have a place to go while i do my workouts, babysitting for Avriana is right across the hall from my classes, and there is a youth center for my son. I looked at other gyms, but after counting all the classes I am taking, I am saving a great deal using the Y. On the days there are no classes, I use the machines, each have a tv and I can watch my children while I work out.....just food for thought...

sorry so long!!

This weekend

Tuesday, April 07, 2009

I am leaving town this weekend for the first time since I have been tracking calories and exercising everyday. We are going to stay with some friends and probably eat out for every meal. I want to make the right food choices but I really don't trust myself, I don't think I know the right things to eat. I know we will be doing a lot of walking if the weather allows and they have an elliptical and bike. I just don't want to tank all the hard work I have done in the last two months in one weekend! I want to have a good time while I am there and not be preoccupied by food!

Great Saturday

Saturday, April 04, 2009

Today was a good day. I had to be in meetings at church from 10 am to 3 pm. I didn't think I would get much of anything done at home. Well as soon as I get home I went and picked up my shovel and start moving some flowers that where just planted in the wrong spot (I did it last year). It took me about a half an hour. DH came out of the garage and said he got my bike cleaned up and the tires inflated. So as soon as I was done diggin in the dirt I jumped on the bike and took a short ride. I got home and looked into the Fitness Map on Spark and it ended up being about 2.5 miles!!

To make things better, I got on the scale this morning and I lost 2 lbs since Wednesday! I didn't believe it. I got back on that scale 2 more times. I still haven't changed my progress because I still don't believe it!

My Mom

Thursday, April 02, 2009

OK so I have been going over to my parents house for dinner once a week for about 9 years now. Before SP it was a day for me to overeat. Lately it has been a really hard for me. They are meat and potatoes type. So low fat is really not what they do. Usually the veggie that goes with those meat and potatoes are corn or peas. Pretty starchy. It seems like I always go over my calories for the day when I go there. But not today! I was happy to see a lean pork roast I was careful not to get a piece bigger than a deck of cards (3 oz). She still had mash potatoes with so much butter in it you could see it swimming but I had about a half cup and of course corn. Then I had chocolate Milk with it (OK so that is my one chocolate thing I get all week). I was so excited when I entered it in I was doing a little happy dance in seat!!

I hope that I can put this into words what I am feeling, but forgive me if I am scattered and jumping around.
I just finished my strength training exercise. I feel pretty darn good. I am not hungry right now but i know it is coming. I have denied myself some of my favorite foods for the last couple of months. I keep reading that it isn't a diet it is a lifestyle. While I agree with that as far as exercise I am not sure I agree with it as far as food goes. I want to be able to eat what I want whenever I want it. I don't want to have to worry about what did I have for breakfast can am I within my calories. I know I can have what I want in moderation. But I have learned that if my diet and exercise don't got together I will gain weight. Maybe that will change. I am not sure.
I know I will be healthier but as I get to my goal I have to figure out what how to eat!
Thanks for reading.
