Changes .....

Tuesday, August 19, 2014

So for a while now I have been contemplating not drinking my typical gallon of peach tea a day. Hubby and I drink alot of Crystal Light Peach Tea. Obviously.

I have been maintaining my weight loss of 66 pounds give or take 10 pounds for a year. I can gain 10 pounds in a weekend (no joke) and lose it the next week. It's crazy. I haven't slacked off too bad from exercise. Just for a short time while hubby was out of work and interrupted my daily routine.

emoticon

So yesterday when I woke I didn't have a gain from the weekend and that hasn't happened for a VERY VERY long time. I was very excited!! I had already decided that yesterday was going to be my day 1 of no tea.

emoticon

Just water for me. Now, I know I didn't get down a gallon of tea but I did drink at least 3 of my 44 oz cup. (I have always drank alot). Yesterday was Max's first day of preschool! Took him, went to work out at the gym, came home and worked and then showered and went back to get Max. Then to the grocery store for a few items and then home for dinner, bath and bed. I logged about 7K steps which I was happy with because it is over what I generally get in a day working from home.

Woke up this morning to a 3.2 pound loss.

3.2 pounds!! Wow!! I mean I usually lose that in a week and then gain it back on the weekend but I am going to attribute this to the tea. I know it has aspartame in it but didn't think it was THAT big of a deal. I have mixed feelings about this too. I really love drinking that tea, but have long suspected it was one of my maintaining issues.

So spark friends, thoughts/comments? Do you agree or is it just a lucky loss? On a good note, I took a sip of hubby's tea (because he refused to drink water) and it was SO SWEET I could barely stand it. Interesting huh?

emoticon

Keep sparking!!

    I personally react terribly to aspartame and just about every other "food" chemical there is, so I suspect it for every possible evil! emoticon Giving it up certainly can't hurt long term, and after awhile you'll lose your taste for it, like hubby's sugary tea, anyway.

Regardless of my soap box though, congrats on the loss no matter what - take it and run! emoticon

    The peach tea we have here is full of sugar so it would make a difference, but they really taste nice.

I think it is possible to lose that much overnight.

Great work.

Water Jogging

Wednesday, June 25, 2014

Sometimes I amaze myself with how unaware I can be. Seriously.

emoticon

We have a pool. I will admit I am addicted to floating on a raft and soaking up the rays. I use sunscreen but not as much as I should. Over the weekend, as I was floating around I decided to take a walk around the pool. I have done that in years past and where I don't feel like I get as much of a workout in the water as I do on land, it still is a good workout.

emoticon

So on Monday, as I was walking again, I thought why couldn't I jog? So I jogged for about 30 minutes. Came in and searched spark and I found that i burned 481 calories! I was AMAZED. So I googled water jogging. I was SHOCKED at the number of articles there were on water jogging workouts for deep and shallow water, shoes, belts, etc.

emoticon

This is the 6th summer we have had the pool but the first time I am looking at it as an exercise tool. I can't wait to workout everyday in it while working on my tan!!
