Give up on Ice Cream!

Wednesday, May 16, 2012

So what is more important, eating something that makes my waist larger or getting to look a little more like the me at Graduation from High School instead of like my aunt, who I loved but do I want to look like her?

I got a blender and am going to shop at the local market to get fresh fruits plus plain yogurt to relieve my taste for cold sweet. But it has to replace a meal.
I cannot add any more calories to my plan...

I even got some cocoa powder to add when I am craving chocolate.
But I will not use milk because that adds calories too.
So fruit, Ice, maybe some nut butters instead of a meal.... count the calories and eat it slowly. Any more Ideas. the fake ice creams just do not do it for me... I just want 500 calories worth.

Also good with the fresh strawberries that are coming into season.

I have been obsessed with Ice cream this last two weeks that it has gotten hotter in Sacramento. So I have been eating a little,,, But between Tuesday and Wednesday I ate a half gallon... this is not helpful. I gained 5 pounds in two days!
If I do not get it off by Monday I will have to change my ticker up again.
This is not acceptable.
I am not getting enough sleep at night and nap in the day instead of getting things done.
I will post every day for the weekend to let you know what is happening.

    I love ice cream so much! Whenever someone would ask my favorite food, I'd always reply, "ice cream!!"

Maybe this will help you, but I've been hunting good substitutions so that I don't have to give up a sweet cold treat, especially now that summer is coming!

My favorite are the Skinny Cow 98% fat free fudge bars. They are only 100 cal each, and they don't taste like diet at all! When I track my food, I make sure to leave 100 cal for the evening so I can have my fudge bar :) I also go for those frozen fruit bars. I think it's Dannon that makes them.. My local grocery story also makes their own generic brand. It's not just a flavored popcicle.. it has chunks of frozen fruit in it. They're really sweet and nice.

Yasso has a greek frozen yogurt bar out now too. The flavors available are strawberry, blueberry, and raspberry. They're fruity and tart, but I thought the texture was a little crumbly and not as creamy as I thought it ought to be.

There are a lot of sno cone stands in the area, too. Now that it's getting hot out, I'll probably be hitting up the stands this summer. My favorite place offers a handful of sugar free flavors, too!

The challenge, of course, is to be happy with just one... But I found these new dessert tools help me out a lot. I hope you find something that works for you! Ice cream is my downfall too.

just sad

Friday, May 04, 2012

So last evening I got a call from my son that the latest foster child who nobody else wanted and who they have been taking care of the last two months, Is now wanted by his biological family. He is five months old, they didn't want him or visit at the hospital, but now that he is 10 pounds 11 ounces they want him.
my son and his wife helped baby gain weight. they gave him their love and attention and though he is still fragile, all of a sudden people are coming out of the woodwork to take him.
my son and his wife are so devastated.
They were told this child was available for adoption.
Not to be on the county rolls but to be a permanent member of our family.
But now we do not know. I am heart sick. Baby has so many medical needs and may be challenged but they wanted him anyway. Please pray for God's will.
But they really want to have a child to raise.

    Praying for your family and the newest grandchild. This is a heart wrenching tale. I am sad too.

The task of caring for a challenged child was probably too much for the birth family at first. The baby should stay where he is truly loved and cared for. I won't even say what might happen to the child if he is moved to a family that can't decide if they want him 'full time' or not.

    I will continue to pray for the baby and your family. We will keep asking God to intervene, and do what is best for everyone.
May you find comfort in the fact that the baby IS loved very much, and he knows this.

I will have 100 points for today if I post this blog.1

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

So while waiting for the coffee to perk I will go ahead and post this Blog.
I did so well with breakfast and lunch but then I found some chocolate cake which will
blow my weight off the scales. I chose not to walk because it is raining.
Because I did not want to walk at the MALL . I chose to not use the tread mill or the elliptical or the stationary bike. No I am sitting here pounding on the computer .

So it is either too hot or too cold, too dark or too bright, Too rainy or too dry.
When will I choose to go for a walk. It is my goal to increase my walk from 30 minutes up to 60. And 3 miles in the 60 minutes ... I can do it. but will I?

Small changes done consistently make the changes that lead to permanent change.
I have been preaching to myself that as I make small changes I will reach my goals.
So no eating at work. It is only 2 1/2 hours I can get through 3 hours without eating.
It is the strawberries that got me last time.
Walking 5x a week 30 minutes but I need to increase my milage.
Work in the yard : planting, pulling weeds or pruning. 30 minutes 3 x a week. www.sparkpeople.com/resource/motivat

now I am going off to replace the syrup in my humming bird feeders.
they are just such a joy to watch. One comes and buzzes around as I change the feeders. They sound like a little airplane zooming in. I just stay still till he settles down after all it is his nature to be protective of his food source.
