Tuesday, December 13, 2011

Just over an hour left & i will be able to go home , the plan for tonight ? return the scale that did not work we ended up buying another one that was much better now both me & my fiancÚ can use the scale :) pick up the groceries needed to make homemade pizza, pita, low fat cheese & lots of veggies :) i was looking for a smaller plate to use for my suppers & i found one i like at a local store i might pick that up too :) go home cook supper ,eat, clean the kitchen do my 30 min workout while my laundry is washing , fold & put away the clothes that i washed yesterday ooops ! maybe watch an hour of tv & off to bed early (did not sleep well last night but that's a whole other story !!!)

hope everyone has a wonderful evening :)

I got on the scale today and to my amazement i was down another 3.5 pounds for a total of 25 pounds !!!!!! My original plan was to loose 25 pounds by march , i still have 3 more months & i am already there !!!! YAY!!!! i really think splitting my workout into 2 sessions , one first thing in the morning & one in the evening after supper is why i reached my goal early , i have logged all my food & cut out almost all of the junk out of my life , i do allow myself one treat every week or so ..... i thought for sure i was going to plateau this week because of all the Christmas parties & the fact that i am working more hours till Christmas , but so far it has not affected me. now i am going to shoot for another 20-25 pounds by march 5th . emoticon

Tis the season , which means overtime for me , i was supposed to be off today but when they offered overtime i decided i could really use the money (for the wedding ) i was informed i would probably be offered extended hours this week & asked to work next saturday & sunday , which means no time off till christmas eve !!! So i stopped at the butcher on the way home picked up a chicken & a few other things so i would be prepared for a few suppers , i have the slowcooker out for tomorrow morning , and all my veggies prepped, that will do for mon & tues night , i have salmon & rice & roasted veggies for wed , i still have not figured out thurs or fri yet but i have a good start, i really need to be prepared so that i can eat healthy and still get my workouts in and work all the extra hours .


one party down one to go :)

    You did better than me! I overstuffed at mine & then couldn't even think about eating dinner. Just did water.

a christmas party Friday & another one Saturday !!!! OH MY !!!!

Thursday, December 08, 2011

If this isn't a test of my willpower i don't know what is , both party's are at restaurants , Tomorrow it is at a pub & they don't even have salad on the menu , this should be interesting !!!!! LOL.... i don't drink so i'm not worried about the extra calories there, i'm happy with water or diet pepsi , oh i just realised i have not had a diet pepsi in 2 months !!!! only water ...WOW how time flies .... Saturdays party is at east side mario's they do serve salad but i'm going to try to avoid the unlimited bread sticks, bread is one of my weaknesses :(

wish me luck :)

    Hi Molly
I know what you mean about going to parties with a lot of unhealthy choices. What I do I eat before I go when I know what they are serving at the parties. This is not about a party but when I go to a restaurant & all they serve is the salad bar hot & cold I ONLY take one Tablespoon from the dishes I start out with soup as long as it is not creamed based. You will be surprised at what is on the plate by doing 1 tb. I had people say when they see me do this at the salad bar "is that all your taking it is so good" well by the time I am done my plate is full They usually have chicken at those salad bars I remove the skin & have one piece if they have ham I ask the person cutting it just give me 1/4 of a slice I only allow 1 serving of meat. Even with the cold salad bar 1 tb By doing this I have a variety & not a heaping plate of unwanted fa t& carbs on leaving the restaurant I am grinning because I beat the salad bar by not letting it over takie me & hating what I did because I would have over indulged in all the wrong choices. It is like a game I play with the restaurant food. You have a good blessed weekend & let me know how it went with the food choices at the parties.
