Due to our normal hours we keep, breakfast is far later than most people. I actually got some decent sleep for a change so it's even later than usual!

Week 1 - Sunday (in the book)
3 sausage links
2 eggs

Then I dressed the eggs up with spinach, radish, mushroom. Plain eggs make me gag and I don't know why. I like eggs, but ugh.. the plain texture.. instantly.. breakfast is over.

Good meal :)

In two hours we're due to eat chicken and asparagus.

It is feeling weird to eat every two hours.


Preprep, biking

Sunday, January 24, 2010

I biked 40 minutes! The last 10 mins were difficult, I was getting super hungry/shakey all of a sudden. I had meant to ride a bit longer but i just couldn't do it.

I prepared all the "free salad" stuff, aside from the alfa sprouts. Got two boxes of spinach, romaine, washed/bagged the radishes, celery, cut up cantelope for the meals in the next week, cut the two cheeses into 1 ounce blocks for the various meal times. I am hoping if I do this a couple times a week, when I am not hungry.. it will mean during meal times that I will be fully prepared for quick and easy eating. Without the urge to grab bad foods or skip a meal because I'm in pain, too sick, or too severely lacking energy!

I feel pretty good about it all :)

    Good idea-to have the healthy snacks ready. That's why i always have a bag of baby carrots on hand. I also bought celery to cut up and keep them handy to dip into hummus as an afternoon snack. Yum!

Tomorrow, I start a new chapter.

Saturday, January 23, 2010

I am starting the carb sensitive diet from the Curves book. I've been counting calories and not getting anywhere. I picked up the Curves book at the thrift store and decided it's worth a shot.

So in preparation, we went and got week 1 groceries. I'm a bit queasy from the cost but my husband reminded me that we bought other stuff too like trash bags, some baggies, a couple of some new style ziplock bowls. I managed to find everything I need except for something called Kitchen Bouquet and protein shakes. I could only find slim fast or special K brand version both at the store or at CVS. Neither is the right kind, so on Sunday I will not have a shake but on Monday our plan is to go to a couple other stores during errands and I'll check for shakes.

I'm a bit squicked by the plain yogurt. Ohmygosh.. just writing about it is making me grossed out. It's plain, people. I am not sure how that is going to go but I will give it a fair try. Flavored yogurt is a bit squicky, plain.. is.. ick.

I got two batteries, replace the one in the scale so I can do proper weigh in (without having to step on it repeatedly to get past the "LO" it flashes hehe) and another for my pedometer that croaked recently.

Feeling better from the illness I've had for the last few weeks, but the lupus isn't doing so hot. I am okay for light exercise. Biking goes well again, I still have to get it done tonight. I'll get back to strength training again as well. I'm hoping that with this protein based diet I will have more energy perhaps in which to get things done.

Tonight I'm thinking I might break out some of the stuff we bought and start pre-sorting it into baggies and get it into the box I'll use to hold all of that stuff. Six small meals a day is whoaa... I think though, that I will feel better. I find it very difficult to hold out till meal time on any given day, by the time it's time to eat I am so beyond hungry that sometimes I find it difficult to even eat because my stomach feels like it's just so cramped it can't handle food. So I am hoping that will be a nice benefit to having to eat so often. The good news is, I should be able to just fit the stuff into my bento box for days we are out running errands. I can pack a small bag with a freezer cube, my bento, a Nalgene full of water and be able to hold over till we get home.

I feel motivated tonight, we'll see how I feel tomorrow.. or better yet.. we'lls ee how I do on whatevre days require plain yogurt. Dude.. seriously.. gross me out! My husband suggested I pre-measure it into the popsicle forms we have and make myself some frozen pops or put it into a small plastic bowl or something and eat it like icecream. I could do that I think, it'd be so cold it wouldn't taste like much anyway.

Working up energy now to load the dishwasher, wipe the stove, and get my biking in. I have another episode of Rosemary & Thyme to watch from Netflix! Netflix makes exercising more fun when I have dvds or streaming to watch.

I hope I can do this, I hope I see results, I hope I am not doomed due to medication to remain at this weight. I have stayed at the same weight.. no gains, no losses really.. for months and months. Holding steady makes me feel a little more confident.

I have eaten a bit like crap some days, so if I eat real good.. surely.. I'll be a thin cat eventually, right? I hope so.

    Thank you :)

I'm hoping I can find some soy based mix that fits the carb/protien the book recommends. We don't have Curves here anymore, it closed down in the last couple of months! Wish I knew why. I never got to go in, they had crazy hours.. always closed mid day and not open weekends. Silly!!

  I tried the CURVES diet. The shakes have to be purchased from CURVES, unless you get a brand from another source. Good Luck with the CURVES diet.

I rode fast today!

Monday, December 14, 2009

I rode fast! Well, faster than usual! Usually I goal myself to 5 miles in 30 minutes (on a recumbent stationary bike) but today I rode 30 minutes and covered 5.63 miles! Yippie! Very proud of myself and now I am very tired.

But what I am most proud of is that I was able to bike. It has been a tough few days with the exhaustion setting back in a bit. Today though, I biked, watched Mr Magorium's Wonder Emporium (I looooove this movie!!), finished Christmas cards, cooked chili, found some books on ebay to order tonight maybe, all in one day.

I had my fast shoes on I guess.


Day off of exercising, flu

Wednesday, December 02, 2009

I thought I could at least get a few minutes of biking in, but I just can't do it. The flu pains, fever, just feeling yucky. Too exhausted to even think about it. Too yucky to even crochet. Tomorrow I should be okay I hope.
