okay, hoping that if I keep blogging every day, I will stay on course!!

so today my little victory (besides sticking to good food choices and daily exercise) is that I pulled out a pair of jeans today that I haven't been able to squeeze into since early December .. and THEY FIT!!

so that's three pair of my old jeans that I've gotten back into in the past month ... that makes me feel so much better, especially since the scale is being quite stubborn about moving down!

hanging in there ...


Hump Day half over

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

wow, here it is Wednesday already ... just 4 more days until I have to go back to the doctor ... where he will look at my weight loss (actually my LACK of weight loss) and decide whether I've at least made a tiny step towards losing, or if he'll decide to go ahead and schedule a liver biopsy ... praying that my blood counts will be really good and he'll give me a couple more months to lose more weight ... keeping my fingers crossed!


mad at myself

why oh why is it soooo hard to follow my healthy eating and exercising on the weekends?? I get up on Saturday morning, determined to exercise as usual and eat well ... and then I don't??? Is it because my hubby is home and I don't want to exercise when he's around?? Is it because he has absolutely no weight issues and wants to eat out all weekend?? Is it because I'm just tired of trying to watch every single thing I eat all week and just feel like I have to break loose??

All I know is that once again I blew it totally over the past weekend ... absolutely no exercising, mindless snacking on Saturday night as we watched tv and then I dug into the honey roasted cashews and easter candy on Sunday ... :(

this has to stop!

a few years back I found out I had high blood pressure, tried to regulate it with diet and exercise, but didn't really get it down much so doctor put me on meds ... since then I have completely cut out salt wherever possible ... I use the Mrs Dash no salt seasonings and actually don't even keep salt in the house anymore ...

so why am I frustrated? because I've been tracking my food on here for the past week or so and am shocked at how much sodium is in my daily food choices .. and I consider them to be really good choices ... I'm sticking right to my calorie, fat, carb and protein guidelines, but the sodium is over every single day

I never realized how much sodium is in processed food .. I've started rinsing any canned vegetables I use and will be even more diligent about reading the labels I guess ...

  I really am getting vigilant about reading labels and avoiding foods with high sodium, but my husband loves to eat out on weekends and that is really a danger zone for me ... I have no way of contolling the salt and fat used in cooking ... I can request no salt / no butter, etc ... but it doesn't always taste like they didn't use it ... I order a lot of salads! :(

  I share your problem and I have had to live entiryly on home cooking from scratch for the most part. Almost every prepared food is full of salt, some frighteningly so.

middle of the week already?

Wednesday, March 23, 2011

well it's Wednesday already ... and what have I accomplished?

well, I got on the treadmill Monday and Tuesday ... I was very good with my food choices both days ... drank LOTS of water ... yay me!

still haven't gotten to the toning and stretching types of exercise yet ... too much sitting at the computer .. of course, it's tough NOT to do that, considering that's my job

I really, really want to get back to swimming, but dread the thought of putting on a swimsuit right now ... ugh! At least I'm usually lucky enough to have the pool to myself, so hopefully by next week I will have talked myself into that again!!

ok, to work for me!
