rough day....

Monday, November 14, 2011

we have to have 'em right. today was not a good day, all the way around. but i was determined to get the workout in regardless of how tired i am today... so i did. i feel a little de-stressed! wish i could have gone earlier so i could get my walk in too... maybe tomorrow

find foods that work with your chemistry. i created this meal on my own. i can't seem to loose weight if i eat any grain products. so one day i experimented.

i make this mixture for breakfast , lunch and dinner. i have lost 32 pounds in 23 weeks. i cook

4 large portabella mushrooms sliced, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, 4 large onions sliced, 2 large green peppers, 3 cans green beans, 1 can rutabaga and 5 sliced chicken sausages.

it makes enough for at least 4 days, three meals a day. total cost is 12 dollars. i buy the mushrooms and chicken at sams club. sounds crazy but it taste good and most importantly it's working. i'm not hungry . if i feel the urge to cheat i go get a fork full of my mixture. i chew very slowly as to enjoy my meal.

i have added a small banana and grapes for my snacks and to be a fix for my sweet tooth.

you can add other foods into your menu. just know what works with your body chemistry.

I have gone from 198 to 166 pounds. i can now fit into a size 14 comfortably. i feel so much better. think of carrying a 2 year old around your waist every minute of every day. no i am not done. on the obese chart i have gone from being obese to just plain fat. my goal is to drop another 22 pounds. then i will be happy, healthy and never allow myself to get in this condition again.

one might say eating the same food every day would get boring. not true. when you look in the mirror and can see the difference it's worth

    Aw, sorry to hear you had a bad day, but congrats on getting your workout in anyway! That shows true motivation, and you should be proud of yourself for putting in the effort even when things weren't going well.

It's my day off and at 11 am i've got the kids ready and to school, got my 75 minute workout in! And it''s almost time to pick up the little one again. The sun is shining and it's a beautiful day! I did something for me today... have you? Maybe a tall nonfat latte is in order as well!

not sure what i would do without my mom! she watches/picks up my kids twice a week and then stays so i can get my workout in...love my mom!
today's workout was going well until i started on my 2 mile walk cooldown.... and ended up getting pelted with snow! it wasn't too bad initially, but about half way through i had to wonder... if getting sick and not being able to work out would be worth it to keep going for the 2 mile walk?! so i got through a little less than half the walk, but got 15 minutes of it in... usually 35 minutes... before i decided i was soaking wet and needed to go home! i love the change of seasons in michigan.... and yes i even love the snow for a little while... but this is going to put a serious damper on my walks!

    I'm so not ready for snow! I love winter and I love snow, but I have to be prepared for it...which I'm not! emoticon

    i don't mind it... it can be beautiful and peaceful! except for when it's the kind that is pelting you in the face!
