    If it was only disastrous for the quantity of food, and not for the quality of company or events of the day, then that one piece is easily overcome. Appreciate all the good from the day!

  Happy Mothers day. We all deserve a break now and then, it helps us remember where we want to be and why we do what we do.

feelin great

Thursday, May 03, 2012

it has been a few days since i blogged but i am still hangin strong.

i had an awesome elliptical workout. i put it on "variety" setting. wow!! some of those inclines were killers! 30 min and i was really sweating. i wanted to do my jogging but my legs just would not go that fast. so instead, i put it on an incline of 5.5 and walked at 3.5 for 30 min. not a lot, but hey, i have found out thru sparkpeople that i dont have to kill myself to work out. all i have to do is move.

i feel so great today. i am off frid , sat and sund. no major plans and that makes me feel even better.

i had a really yummy smoothie after my workout,. i like to record them in blogs that way i dont forget how i made them. plus, if anyone wants to try them, they are here/

chocolate/banana/ peanut butter smoothie

1/2 scoop choc protein powder
1 tsp red fat peanut butter
1/2 cup 1% cottage cheese
1/2 frozen banana
little splenda
splash of milk

blend and enjoy

keep sparkin

    WOW!! That is awesome! I have tried the variety setting on the elliptical and it is a killer! I did the arc trainer (stairs/elliptical) this morning for 25 mins at a resistance of 6. Thought I'd die before I got off!! You are doing great!! Keep up the good work!

Sounds like a great workout and great smoothie.

I have not tried the variety setting on the elliptical, I will try it next time.

I am new at smoothies, usually just fruit, yogurt and milk. Hadn't thought of cottage cheese or vanilla.

Thanks for blogging this!

slim in six series--- really tough plus another yummy smoothie

Friday, April 27, 2012

i started off today by doing debbie severs slim in six i just thought i would change it up and see if i liked it better than jillian michaels 30 day shred. she has 3 separate workouts, depending on your progress. start it up, ramp it up, burn it up. i thought i would try the burn it up to see if i could hande it. well let me tell you, it is rough. 60 min on really hard excercise to make you sweat. i made it thru 20 min of different types of lunges. i had to stop after that. they call it burn it up for a reason.

so i guess that will be my goal. i def like it better than jillian michaels. not sure why. she is more soft spoken, but tough. next time, i will do ramp it up, which is a 40 min workout.

had oatmeal made it a mug for breakfast. blueberries was my fruit for breakfast. lunch is gonna be shrimp and broccolli. dinner is whole wheat pasta, shrimp, and caulfiflower.

i am still fighting the nightime eating problem. last night i had a fat free pudding and was wanting that to be all. i was soooo hungry tho. i ended up having 1 tbs of peanut butter on an arnolds sandwich thin. tonight is another night i guess i will try something else tonight

now gonna take my walk and head to work.

here is to a great day!!!

Todays yummy smoothie

4 oz plain greek yogurt
1 cup frozen strawberries
1/2 scoop maximum protein powder- vanila
Spash of milk

keep sparking spark friends/. emoticon

  I have had slim in six for about five years and only now want to start using it. Has any one used it with good results after six weeks and would recommend it ?

    It;'s not always bad to have a small snack before you go to bed. I often eat peanut butter too right before I go to sleep. Fat/protein helps keep your sugar levels even out so you don't spike in the middle of the night. It actually helps me sleep all night long with out waking up at 3:00 am. Good job on the work out!! Have a good weekend!!

day of blc--i am so pumped

Thursday, April 26, 2012

well this is day 1 and i am so excited.

i woke up feeling kinda dizzy but i was not gonna be derailed from my workout. i always feels so positive when i start my day of with a good workout.

i did intervals on elliptical. 5 min high step, 5 min low steps. for 32 min. i was def sweating
then in did my weight workout. did 3 back excercises and 3 leg excercises.

i came home and ate some great food. i am eating a fruit with my breakfast, a veggie with my lunch, and a fruit and veggie with my dinner. my snacks consist of a fruit or carrot sticks along with a small amount of protein. my hardest time is when i get home from work at 11 pm i am trying to eat no more than 200 calories at night. not sure how this is gonna work. i am trying to get a system down tho.

i had a boca sausage patty ( which is my new favorite food) i used arnolds pita bread. made egg muffin with laughing cow cheese and boca sausage. it was great! i also had broiled zuccinni. and strawberries with vanilla yogurt

a great day so far!!

with that said, it is time for work

i am gonna have a great day

    Fantastic !!!!
One trick I use to feel more full during the day is to make sure i eat at least 60g of lean protein throughout the day.
