Two Thumbs up-

Tuesday, July 27, 2010

I tried Aldi's "Rice Bowl" brand Boil-in-the-bag rice tonight. Pretty easy. I microwaved it, in water, for 10 minutes and it turned out perfectly. One bag makes two 1-cup servings. Sold in a box with 4 ready-to-boil bags- I think that I paid $1.99 for it so a good deal. I like the fact that I always RUIN rice.. but not this time.


Day Two

Tuesday, July 27, 2010

I decided that I need to start over.
For now, I am going to count calories and exercise but ultimately I'd like to not count calories. I enlisted the help of a friend for check-ins. i've told her that she needs to call daily for the first two weeks to hold me accountable. And then random check-ins after that. I hope it helps. Feel free to email me to encourage or ask if I'm staying on track/exercising.


The "tomorrow" syndrome

Sunday, June 20, 2010

I'm off to brunch with my dad for fathers day.
I will be employing an age-old constant dieters move: the "tomorrow" syndrome.
This syndrome is a form of self-sabotage..
Something goes not according to plan, and then the rest of the day is trashed.

Mine is actually pre-planned.
I am eating at a buffet. I am going to enjoy it. I am not a skinny person that can successfully navigate the buffet, eating only the select morsels, gauging fullness, passing by some stations, I will be eating bacon AND sausage patties.
And then I will be back on my diet "tomorrow".

    I had that idea yesterday also about walking. I told myself that I would start fresh today with walking and eating healthy. We had pizza last night and I stuffed myself because I didn't eat lunch.

Mad biker

Tuesday, June 15, 2010

I got home tonight and went for a bike ride and pumped real hard and pushed myself and I think that I must have looked really angry biking with my hair all pouffy and Ahhhhhhhhhhh! But I got out there for 40 minutes. It felt like an eternity, probably because it wasn't a leisurely ride.

Looking forward to trying geocaching this weekend with the Minneapolis/ St. Paul official SparkTeam Rally. Whoo! Just need to remember to charge up the old TomTom.

My plan is to join the MN SparkRally next weekend and try geocaching for the first time. It will also be my first SparkRally. I'm hoping the weather is nice. I found my GPS unit just this week so I'm set to go. I have an idea how to use it but it will be nice to meet others that know what they are doing.

The sparkrally is in Brooklyn Center on Saturday, June 19.
