Your support has paid off!

Saturday, November 19, 2011

Last week I was feeling kind of blue that the scale wasn't changing. Well, I stepped in it this morning and was down 4 and a half pounds!! Thanks so much everyone for encouraging me to stick with it! I have a long way to go, but at least I feel I'm on the road again!

Greek for me

Friday, November 18, 2011

I have a client who owns a Greek restaurant, and I can never go in there without coming out with a TON of food - she insists on feeding me! Yesterday it was a dozen spanikopita, 5 cabbage rolls, and three stuffed peppers! Fortunately, I had company coming last night, so the spanikopita got pretty well finished off. The remainder just has to go--there's nothing healthy about that much philo and feta, no matter how delicious it it (I limited myself to one bite last night, so I'm very proud).

I'm freezing the rest in individual servings for THOSE nights - you know, the ones where you are tired and don't want to cook and fast food is *so* tempting. Last night was, in fact, one of those nights. Due to a crazy work day, I hadn't eaten anything all day except half of a homemade, no sugar added, fruit smoothie (225 calories). If I had not had all that food to take home with me, I'm sure I'd have stopped at McDonalds or something. Instead, I had a cabbage roll filled with veggies. Both healthier and tastier!

    Thanks all. If the food had been where I could reach it on the drive home, I probably would have stuffed myself! Serenpiditously, I put it in back--I was practically drooling from the aromas, but couldn't get to it! Otherwise, this story would have had a much more shameful ending! emoticon

Obstacle course

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

That's what my life has been the last few weeks! First travel, then a really dreadful chest virus that had me coughing up a lung when I did more than climb up the stairs, now a UTI. I'm kind of frustrated with the piling on. But I'm still watching my eating and getting in some exercise. Let's hope all this stops soon!

Embracing the dark of the year

Friday, November 11, 2011

The last couple days have not been good ones for me, and I think I need a change in attitude. As we move toward Yule, it's easy to fall into the pattern of wanting to hibernate and then being mad at myself for being "lazy." I'm going to try a new approach this year. Instead of trying to push myself through this, I'm going to embrace it. I'm going to focus less on getting in tons of aerobics and more on yoga and stretching. I'm going to let myself eat the hearty kinds of foods that this time of year triggers, but control portions better. Let's see if that changeup helps.

    Good attitude. I am hoping to lose a bit more before Thanksgiving and then maintain until after the holidays.
