just a few things I learned....

Wednesday, October 10, 2012

On my journey to a healthier and slimmer life I have learned so much. I always tell people it is not a diet, but a life style change. I still have a candy bar or Donut once in a while , and they are always telling me , I shouldn't eat that, because it is bad for me. But I tell them , that I won't deprive myself and add these things to my calorie total.
I also learned to shop better,so it will not kill my grocery bill. I found that Save-a-lot has a lot of healthy foods for a reasonable price and I buy my produce at a local fruit stand. I got to know the owner very well and she always gives me special deals.
I am not drinking soda pop anymore, now I drink seltzer water with a little crystal light for flavor. It is working pretty good for me. I even tried turkey bacon, they had it on sale @ Save-a-lot for $1 per package. It is awesome.
The best thing that has happened with my life style change , is that my husband's diabetes is under control and his medications got decreased and he is doing great with his food.
This is what he fixed me for breakfast this morning.

And I want to thank all my Spark friends for their support.

    LOL! I get the same from husband when he's trying to be helpful and wondering, "Is THAT on your diet?" I keep telling him I'm not on a diet.

I don't think I'd want a pic of my husband's efforts at fixing breakfast. He is a dear man, but his talents do not lie in the kitchen. Lucky you!

    Breakfast looks yummy! I eat turkey bacon as my standard bacon, but it took me a few times before I liked it. Partly because I am one of those bacon eaters that likes it fatty and under-cooked. I know totally bad for me for so many reasons, but now I eat the turkey bacon and it is good.

You are so right about not depriving yourself of goodies, as long as you are accounting for it in your calorie range, and not substituting it for needed nutrients. (That was my biggest battle when I started adding back treats into my food choices.)

finally a day off....

Tuesday, October 02, 2012


Just wanted to share these with you, they are very motivational and keep me going. I have been working a lot lately, but it paid off. They gave me a full time position on day shift, so now I work every Friday, Saturday , Sunday and Monday. At least no more swing and night shifts. But I love my job and all my little residents in Nursing Home.
Sorry , that I haven't been able to keep up with all of you. I will try to do better this month.
Thank you for being there for me.... emoticon

A little update....

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

I have so busy lately and haven't been able to keep up with all my Spark friends.I am really going to make an effort to at least read blogs for an hour every day.
All I have been doing is work, work and more work. But I am building my workouts into my work. My co-workers think I am crazy, because I park my med cart at the nurses station and walk back and forward to all my patients rooms. But I walk about 3 miles every day that I work, sometimes even a little more.
I have been loosing and gaining the same 2 lbs for a month now, so I guess I will have to increase my exercise and eat better(had some pizza and Chinese food).
Now it's getting a little cooler here in Florida, I will able to walk outside more often. My husband told me we could walk together in the mornings when he and I are not working and in the evenings when we are working. I hope I will break this plateau that.
I want to thank all my Spark friends for all their support and kind words.
