Goals Week of July 29th to Aug. 4th

Sunday, July 29, 2012

Today was a so so day. Real lack of enthusiasm. Was going to do some yard work with the strimmer. Did not have the gas and did not feel like going out for it. We did try to order the door for the shed. The original doors had blown off a couple of weeks ago with the wind storm. The sales person said he had to find some info out for us first so the door is not ordered. DD fixed dinner tonight as her meal for the coming week. We had grilled sausages and peppers and onions. Go to start the grill and a mouse had build a nest in it. So we had to clean out the nest and clean the grill before we could cook dinner. At this point I am really not in the best mood. I may walk later since I have done no exercise. On the other hand I have not had a day off in multiple weeks. Maybe I should just take it all as a sign that today is a rest day.

Plans for the rest of this week.

1. Plan menu for Monday through Saturday on Monday.

2. Do ST at the gym on MWF

3. 30 minutes on stationary bike and 20 minutes on elliptical on MWF.

4. Walk 5K on Tu/Th/Sat, will run one of the days for the virtual 5K.

5. Work in my garden spread fertilizer, weed and train the tomatoes. Turn the compost pile.

6. Supervise DD cooking one meal. Already done.

7. Stay within calorie range Monday through Saturday.

  I would say you need a break! You are always "on". Take a rest for a day or two. I wouldn't have wanted to cook by the time all that was completed. A mental break might be a good thing!

    If you did take a day off, I hope you enjoyed it. Your weekly goals are well thought out as usual. I am finally feeling a lot better, and will start doing the same thing... tonight or tomorrow morning at the latest. It works for you, and that's good enough for me.

Review Week of July 22-28th

Saturday, July 28, 2012

Today was a really fun day. The kids came for dinner. I had made Pastierra for Holy Saturday last spring. When I made it I realized I had made enough to feed us twice so we ate one then and I froze the other one for later. Today was later. Pastierra is a traditional Holy Saturday food and it fits no diet. It is a pie made with rice, homemade egg pasta, eggs, cheese pepper and lard. I didn't even try to determine the calories. I just took the day off . I tracked my fruits and veggies and breakfast and lunch. I know I exceeded my calorie range and this is just a day off. We had a really nice meal and afterwards watched "The Princess Bride", played a board game and had a very nice time.
I walked this morning, It was hot and humid so my time was really poor. I also ran into a neighbor who asked how I did on my last 5K race. While we weere talking I mentioned I wanted to do a race in September but my DD was working so I had no one to run with. Well she is going to do it with me so I am signing up for a race in September. emoticon emoticon
So how did I do with my goals?

1. Plan menu for Monday through Saturday on Monday. emoticon

2. Do ST at the gym on MWF emoticon

3. 30 minutes on stationary bike and 20 minutes on elliptical on MWF. emoticon

4. Walk 5K on Tu/Th/Sat emoticon
bonus points I walked jogged on Tuesday and walked an additional 5K on Wednesday

5. Start looking for the new family room furniture. emoticon

6. Work in my garden spread fertilizer, weed and train the tomatoes. Turn the compost pile.
Did not get all of this done. Goal not met.

7. Supervise DD cooking one meal. It will have to be Saturday since she has camp this week.
DD did not have camp on Friday so she made tacos on Friday. emoticon

8. Stay within calorie range Monday through Saturday.
Did not stay within calorie range today so goal not met.

9 Do daily triceps exercises to see if I can diminish my bat wings.
I did them on MWF. The trainer at the gym said that I should not do them every day.

So I had a pretty good week. Met a lot of my goals. After today really need to watch calories this coming week. I am pretty happy.

Living with Spark

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

I have been thinking about this blog for the last few days and have started it at least 3 times before deciding it was lame and deleting it. I have had a lot of success in the 3 years I have been working at losing weight. I made a lot of changes in lifestyle prior to joining SP on June 28, 2011. I have read about diets in women's magazines for years. In fact I found Spark People by reading an article in Women's Day. I tried the South beach diet at one time and the first time I successfully lost weight I had used a discredited diet called the Stillman diet. A form of that diet lives on in the Atkins diet. The problem with diets is that there is a start, a middle and an end. In the end the weight comes back. The thing that sets Spark apart is that it is not a diet. It is a lifestyle change. The program provides a person with the tools necessary for that person to reinvent oneself. Each person can take as much or as little out of the plan as they want or need. For myself I embrace the nutrition and exercise trackers. They are key to my success. I track daily. I exercise daily. As I have gotten fit I have increased my exercise. In July of 2011 I exercised for 1120 minutes. This month I should exceed 3000 minutes if I continue as planned. I have already exceeded 2500 minutes. When I got started last year I already had an exercise program that I had been following for over two years with occasional lapses when I stopped exercising. I continued that program with Spark and gradually added to it. Back then my program was to walk 2-3 times a week on a treadmill for 30 minutes. Go to the gym on alternate days and do 2 sets of 15 reps on the 17 weight machines twice a week. This month(July) I have gone to the gym 3 times a week and done 2 sets on the 17 machines plus 30 minutes on the bike and 20 minutes on the elliptical. Rather than walk for 30 minutes I have been walking for over 40 minutes 3 to 4 times a week and covering 5K almost every time I walk. I also participated in a 5K race. Last year my goal was to walk a 16 minute mile someday. Today I regularly walk a 15 minute mile. It has taken consistency and persistence to get to the point I am today.

Some people I have talked to assume I was always in good shape. Well I was not. When I weighed 272 pounds, it was a chore to climb steps. By the time I got to the top I was huffing and puffing. If I needed to kneel on the floor to say scrub the bathtub, I would have to struggle to get up by grabbing the side of the tub and pushing as hard as I could to struggle up. It was a struggle. I had plantar fascitis and wore custom orthotics in my mens sneakers because womens sneakers were not wide enough for my feet. I have very big wide feet. My current running shoe is a mans size 10 1/2 wide. I have the same size foot as my 6 foot husband. I suffer from Hashimoto's, a hypothyroid condition. When I got started in January of 2009 I was not in good shape. If I was going down steps each step would get both feet. I could not go down steps by hitting each step with alternate feet. I had aches in my knees and ankles and was taking daily ibuprophen for pain. Basically I was a mess.

In June of 2011, when I started SP, I weighed 235 pounds. Since then I have lost 64 pounds and am now 171 pounds. My goal is to get down to 155 pounds. That is a BMI of 125 which is still overweight but just barely. It is also less than I have weighed since I was in elementary school. I am very muscular. I typically rank in the top 25 compared to both men and women of all ages for the amount of weight I lift in a month at my gym. For women my age I am usually either first or second. Therefore I don't think BMI works really well for me.

So what do I do for food. I eat a varied diet that leans heavily on fruit and vegetables. In a typical day I usually exceed 10 servings of fruit and vegetables. My favorite breakfast is a banana/strawberry/Greek yogurt smoothie. It has 300 calories and is about 4 cups. I will occasionally have shredded wheat with almond milk and banana. Very occasionally I have 2 fried eggs with 1 piece of dry rye bread.
Lunch tends to be 200 grams of romaine lettuce topped with 1/2 cup chickpeas and a variety of other veggies such as tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, canned beets, jicama, radishes, scallions. This would be followed by 2 pieces of fruit.
Dinner is whatever I cook for my family. I have entered my recipes into the recipe calculator and determined what my portion sizes should be. I also have 1 or 2 pieces of fruit. I rarely fix potatoes. I have pasta maybe 2 or 3 times a month. Rarely eat bread. Will have rice a couple times a week with either a stir-fry type meal or a curry. I generally do not snack. My calorie range right now is 1400-1800 calories and I aim for 1600 calories.
What do I do when I have cravings?
I am human and do occasionally have cravings. Sometimes I give into them, especially if I have enough calories for them. No food is bad, it just needs to be accounted for. There are times that I exceed my calorie range. As long as it is only occasionally there is nothing wrong with that. If I exceed too often in a short period of time I rely on sugarless gum or hot tea as a deterrent to eating.
If you have suffered through this long tedious blog, you probably read my "I lost one hundred pounds" blog so you know what I got out of living this lifestyle.
I love the person I am now. I can't exactly say I love to exercise but I enjoy it. It is a part of my routine. I usually take Sunday off (haven't recently because of the 5% summer challenge). Otherwise my routine is to go to the gym on M/W/F for ST, elliptical and stationary bike. On Tu/Th/S I walk or walk/run 5K. I regularly work in my garden. My yard is large and I have a lot to tend. My calorie burn from exercise is in excess of 4000 calories per week.
It has been a great journey and I can see maintenance just down the road emoticon

    This is a really, really good account of where you were and how you got to where you are - and so much of it resonates with me, from the struggling to get up when cleaning the bath, to the orthotics in the trainers. The one thing which you didn't mention was how much pain you had to endure whilst working through increasing your fitness regimes and losing the weight. Do tell - has it eased as the weight came off?

Your account is perfect because it is full of detail about how YOU did it, and you have left it each reader to take whatever inspiration they choose. It wan't long, it was magnetic! I'm interested in your food regime too, and your discipline and determination are worth an Olympic Gold if you choose to come over here!

You really are an inspiration, Rosa - yes, 'awesome' is definitely the word for you Congratulations!

Goals Week of July 22-28th

Sunday, July 22, 2012

I had a busy day today started with a 5K walk. The weather was cool but humid since it has been raining for the last two days and until late this afternoon it was overcast and threatening. I completed it in 44:26 which is 1 minute faster than last Thursday. Amazing what the cooler weather will do. I also worked in the yard today for a couple of hours. I moved some wood that I was freecycling to the curb and spread 12 bags of mulch. By the time I was done I was really tired, it was nearly 5 and starting dinner was not on my mind. So we went to the Olive Garden for dinner. I made a good choice for the entrée. I had the mixed grill at 830 calories. It was delicious and I really needed the protein. I did not need the second bread stick but I was so hungry and our food was not coming and I love bread. I rarely allow myself to have it. At 150 calories per bread stick it really eats into my calories. On the other hand I worked off 760 calories today and I was only 440 calories over my upper range. I will be a little more careful for the rest of the week and it will be fine. So here are my goals for the coming week.

1. Plan menu for Monday through Saturday on Monday.

2. Do ST at the gym on MWF

3. 30 minutes on stationary bike and 20 minutes on elliptical on MWF.

4. Walk 5K on Tu/Th/Sat

5. Start looking for the new family room furniture.

6. Work in my garden spread fertilizer, weed and train the tomatoes. Turn the compost pile.

7. Supervise DD cooking one meal. It will have to be Saturday since she has camp this week.

8. Stay within calorie range Monday through Saturday.

9 Do daily triceps exercises to see if I can diminish my bat wings.

    Olive Garden is my downfall. Which is why I refuse to eat there that often, and when I do I stare at the menu online before hand so that I know what I'm getting when I get there and how many calories it is. I have found if I don't look over the menu while I'm there I'm less likely to stray on my decision. Congrats on getting your 5k walk down a minute! Best of luck on your goals for the week.

    OLIVE GARDEN IS A REAL TEMPTATION FOR ME. SO IS RED LOBSTER. I LOVE THE SALAD AT OLIVE GARDEN BUT THE DRESSING IS NOT LOW FAT. I SO RARELY GET TO GO THERE THAT I DO EAT BOTH THE SALAD AND TWO BREAD STICKS WHEN I GO BUT I PLAN IT IN MY CALORIE BUDGET FOR THE DAY. I MAY HAVE TO GO TO BED HUNGRY (WE USUALLY EAT OUR BIG MEAL AT NOON) AND THAT MAKES FOR A LONG NIGHT. HMMMMM ... I MAY HAVE TO RE-THINK THAT PLAN.

Review week of July 15-21

Saturday, July 21, 2012

Wow what a week it has been! My "I lost 100 pounds blog was voted a Popular Blog Post. I am working on my thank-yous to all the people who have supported me. I am floating on air. In fact This morning I was down another pound it must be the fact that I am floating. Or it is because the weather cooled down and I am shedding water. Talk about shedding water, I went out for my 5K walk this morning and it started to drizzle. Well I wasn't going to melt so I kept on walking. About a mile into my walk I realized that the drizzle which had turned to steady rain was not going to stop so I headed back home. I only walked 2 miles and I was soaked. It has continued to rain all day so I never got to the yard work I intended to do this week. Best laid plan... I have exceeded my exercise plans for the week so I won't fret. We are supposed to see an outdoor performance of Romeo and Juliet tonight and I don't know yet if they will cancel. We have had nearly 1.5 inches of rain today on top of the 1.5 yesterday. I think the chairs will sink in the mud emoticon
Anyway I had a 2 pound weight loss this week emoticon I am down 101 pounds! I weigh less than I have since I was a kid! Life is good!
How did I do with my goals?

1. Plan menu for Monday through Saturday on Monday. emoticon

2. Do ST at the gym on MWF emoticon

3. 30 minutes on stationary bike and 20 minutes on elliptical on MWF. emoticon

4. Walk 5K on Tu/Th/Sat

I did a 5K on Tu and Th plus 1.94 miles on Sat and an additional 2.28 miles on Tuesday and 3 miles on Thursday so emoticon

5. Do an additional Walk on Tu with my coffee friends (this is already planned and will be on a shaded trolley path.

This was moved to Thursday so emoticon

6. Work in my garden doing upkeep. Turn the compost pile. emoticon

Still have more to do but what else is new emoticon

7. Supervise DD cooking one meal. emoticon

8. Stay within calorie range Monday through Saturday. emoticon

9 Do daily triceps exercises to see if I can diminish my bat wings. emoticon

All in all I have had a stellar week, Hope next week goes as well!
