Working on it!

Saturday, December 01, 2012

This past week I have really taken good steps to becoming healthy. The holidays are really a hard time to stay healthy and I gained a couple pounds over Thanksgiving. But my good friend Jenny and I have started a great workout routine where we get up early feed our horses, go the gym for a couple hours, then we ride. Tomorrow we are actually going to ride in Palo Duro Canyon which will be a workout. I have been feeling so much healthier ever since we started this new routine! emoticon

I have also been trying to drink tons of water and I am currently drinking a detox drink all day today that is 3 quarts water, two lemons, half a cucumber, and speramint leaves fuzed over night. It is a lot of water and I'm having trouble remembering to keep drinking it but I'm trying! It's supposed to do really good things for your body. Also, starting tomorrow, over the next 7 days I will be drinking a drink that will help me loose my bloat from water weight. It's similar to the detox I am drinking today. It's all organic with water and fruits. I am also starting to drink a tbs of flaxseed oil that has omega-3 in it every day and take a Vitamin D supplement at night. I'm hoping to see some positive results in about a month. Oh! And of course I'm doing my best to sticking to eatting healthy. I'm so pumped about my new healthy choices!! emoticon


Halloween was not good to me

Thursday, November 01, 2012

Well Halloween was really fun and I had a blast. James and I just dressed up and handed out candy at the house. We drank a little but I only had two beers. It was the blue moon pumpkin ale so I felt like I had to because it was halloween. emoticon And we had a lot of left over candy so I've been munching on that. And that is so not good! But I'm also eating out of stress and anxiety. My best friend had a sweet baby girl 11 weeks and 6 days ago and she was born without walls separating the chambers in her heart. She is going in for open heart surgery tomorrow and I can't stop crying. I know it's for the best but sweet little babies shouldn't have to go through heart surgeries. emoticon It breaks my heart.

I haven't gone to the gym in about a week but I am going tonight to run off the stress. I don't even want to weigh myself because I don't want to know. I'm getting in a rut but I'm trying to pull myself out. I'm still trying to stay on track with little changes but I'm feeling overwhelmed. Anyways, hopefully my blog will be more positive next time!

Got Side Tracked

Sunday, October 28, 2012

I definately got side tracked this weekend. I have broken my diet a couple of times but I feel that just coming back on here and making and effort will help. I thought I could just go cold turkey on bad habits and loose ten pounds in a month. I'm starting to realize it is going to be a much longer period of time. I need to really work on making gradual changes in my life. There is no really quick fix to bad eatting habits unless I checked myself into some extreme therapy or something which I really don't think I need. Overall my eatting habits have changed and I have been eating much better. I have barely had any soda or alcohol. I have only had fast food once (other than salads and oatmeal) in this past month or so. I have been much more active. I have been dealing with trying to handle stress and anxiety. I still think I could work on eating more fruits and veggies but I am doing better. I used to go out and eat for every meal and now I'm cooking so much and really enjoying it! So, I may be slipping a little but over all I am making improvements. I just need to keep on this site and working with my motivation! emoticon

    Real success involves a process - one where you make small changes one at a time, ensure they are part of your life before adding more.

    Well, you've summed up the secret of SparkPeople. It's all about making those little lifestyle changes that will last the rest of our lives. Congratulations! And even though you got off track, you knew where to come to get back on the right road. As one of my SP friends once said: "If you're driving down the highway and have a flat tire, you don't stop and get out and run around the car poking holes in the other 3 tires. You pull over and fix the flat and get back on the road as quickly as possible." It's the same with healthy living. If we slip up, there's no point in throwing in the towel for the whole day--we just need to get back on track quickly and continue our journey toward that healthy lifestyle. Good job. You deserve it, so hang in there until it becomes second nature to you. Eating healthy can be very enjoyable. And it's not impossible to stop eating fast food and start fixing healthy meals at home.

Pizza Slip Up

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

Well last night I planned this great meal for James and I. I made low fat baked macaroni and cheese and low fat jalapeņo poppers. I got the recipes off of spark people recipes. I've always loved spark people recipes and never have had a problem with them before but the mac and cheese was very bland. Next time I'll give it much more spice! But the horrific issue was I had a dumb moment and itched my lip with jalapeņo juice on my hand then tried to wipe it away.... wellllll that was a disaster. My whole mouth area started burning terribly! Then I used practically all of my milk to ease the pain. I was in so much pain that James ended up finishing making them and then they came out badly so we didn't even eat them. So we ordered pizza, cheese sticks, and cinnamon sticks. I only had 2 small pieces of pizza and two cinnamon sticks but it made me feel very guilty. And in the morning I was a pound heavier and I felt really discouraged. I still went to the gym and I have been eating good all day. But I should not have given in to the pizza! :( Whoops! emoticon


Still Going!

Wednesday, October 17, 2012

Well I am still plugging along! I have been staying in my calorie limit all week! I really need to work on my carbs and fat though. I never go to far over my mark but it's usually just a little over. I've still only lost about 1-2 pounds. But maybe it will start coming off soon because I have been working out every single day other than on Sundays. It's crazy how slowly the weight comes off. But I'm not going to give up this time. I have a goal and im dedicated to meet it!! emoticon
