    It sounds like you'll need the walk as "down" time to unwind your mind.

    And you don't call all of that exercise! Whew girl! It sounds like you'll get plenty of movin' and groovin' in today! But, I have no doubt you'll still manage to squeeze a walk in there somewhere.

day 11

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

still on track. tomorrow will be hard. today will be hard. i am leaving shortly to go start easter orders at the bakery. Somehow i have to figure out a walk in the downpour. i so detest spring and all the rain and muck... Tomorrow is katies birthday and her dinner request is chicken parmesan and chocolate birthday cake. Chocolate is not my thing so no big deal there. but the parm is another thing.
I think i have it worked out...i can measure the spaghetti and make myself just tomato sauce. I am going to use just egg white for mine, dip it in just 2 tablespoons of breadcrumbs, spray it with pam and bake it. i'll do it the regular way for everyone else but i think this will work, allow me to stay on plan, and all will be hunky dory...

    Great plan, Holly! You are doing great and I applaud you because I know this has been a lot of work!

    great plan! TOO bad you did not have the pan I have it is an open pan with tiny little dimonds. Imagine fish net stocking on a flat pan. Any way when you cook on it, it makes your chicken like you fried it. NO OIL and fat free!!!
As for the parmesan Use Parmesan cheese rather than the regular on yours. Parmesan is not too bad actually!

day 10

Tuesday, April 19, 2011

today was hard. got up in to teach special ed. hungry even with a good breakfast. Lunch comes i have my on plan lunch and someone had a package of processed whoopie pies. and shared with everyone. i politely said no while i bit into my apple and tried not to smell how good they smelled. I kept telling myself..they are commercial and packaged. not homemade like i do in the bakery. i'm sure they arent good. but man did i want one. this is the first time i have hit the geez i want that stage.
anyhow i didnt. i'm heading for a walk even though i'm pooped. good time to get out of the house as kevin is frying eggs and having toast and the smells are killing me. so i have to once again turn it to tell myself they may smell good but there are few things i find as disgusting as runny egg yolks. i guess thats how i have to get through all this...ewww and i can now smell that he drenched them in tabasco sauce. at least the good smell is gone...lol. off for a walk.

    THere you go EVERYTIME you want something bad imagine a soft egg on top!! YUCK!!!
As for those woopie pies, I bet yours in the bakery are Delicious! But the thought of the prepacked with enough preservatives to last longer then our life times!!! Good job turning them down!!

    Enjoy your walk! Great job with the whoopie pies too! I'm sure they aren't nearly as good as yours. They're one of my weaknesses too... the homemade ones that is. emoticon

day 9

Monday, April 18, 2011

ok day 8 sucked. totally. but guess what? I WON.
i tried REALLY hard to cheat. yup. i was tossing in the towel. i was mad, and i was gonna show it. every time i tried to eat something not on plan somehow i just couldnt. case in point: i bought the Harry Potter DH1 movie. i was gonna make a big tub of buttered popcorn and veg all after noon. then i decided before i watched i should walk..just a little. just a mile. slow. yeah right. i did 2.5, and i didnt do my 30 mins but i didnt go slow either.
i came in and went to make the popcorn and decided i'd make it part way through. never happened. bummer. i really WANTED popcorn dripping in butter. oh well. i even failed at being bad..LOL!!

    You didn't fail at being bad - you've just changed your habits so much that "bad" doesn't appeal to you anymore. Good for you!!

day 8

Sunday, April 17, 2011

yeah i'm not happy. i worked my tail off this week and i am not seeing a loss but a gain. I havent weighed on my official scale yet just the digital upstiars but its usually a good indicator. i was expecting a big loss...first week and all. not a gain, not one pound. i killed myself for this.
i know just keep plugging. but its discouraging to have worked so hard endured so much pain in my leg and not be rewarded. and watch the other person in the house eat total CRAP, sit in a chair all week and tell me how he lost. yeah. go figure.
sorry to be a downer. it just sucks is all.

    So sorry for not having visited in a while.

I just popped by to see how you are doing. I'm sorry to read that you are feeling frustrated. Keep plugging away at it. It sounds like you are doing all the right things ... so that darn scale will start to behave itself again really soon! (I just went through a stand still week last week too.) It's amazing how the emotions just whizz through my head ... disbelief, anger, frustration, and finally my little old stubborn donkey self starts to kick in again. This is not going to beat us! Let's be stubborn donkeys together!

    I hear you y dear! But I just read a very good article here at sparks and it talks about how when you start a new exercise program it is very common to gain weight the first couple weeks but if you keep at it then it will melt off. So hang in there! But I like you am discouraged! this week But know Matter we got to keep still plugging. We will make it eventually!

    You're right, it does suck, Holly. I'd be upset, too! It's important to remember that our bodies don't work like Swiss trains and don't always give the results we expect when we expect them. Keep doing the right things and the results WILL come. You have to be persistent. It's not time wasted, either -- you are building good habits while waiting for your body to catch up. Stick with this, even when it doesn't appear to be working, and you're developing the persistent and will power to stick to anything. You can do it, one day at a time.

As for the family member who is eating crap, sitting around, and bragging about how much he lost, here's what Steve Siebold (FatLoser.com) said to tell people like that: "Go suck ants." The only person that matters is you. Keep doing the right things for you and ignore what he's doing. This journey is about you, and you are going to win!

    I hear you! I am sorry to hear that your leg is bothering you more. I was very impressed with your push to be more active & walking despite the crumby weather. I think you had a great week, even though the scale didn't show it. You made a lot of healthy choses and felt good about it. You reaped some rewards this past week from your choses because you were feeling good about working at being healthy....not "just sitting in achair eating crap". Don't let the scale take that away from you! You are at work making good life changes...not just on a diet. Feel proud of the week you have had and keep digging into what you can do to build on last weeks successes. You are so worth it!!! emoticon emoticon
