March 1st

Monday, March 01, 2010

I have to say since I gave up eating after supper it's hard to get in all of my calories.
I had popcorn after my lunch just because I was craving it and haven't had any all since before Lent began. I think that was enough for awhile.

I am trying to have protein at each meal. I was having a piece of cheese if I couldn't think of any other protein and then I realized that I was having too much cheese.

I think I am rambling tonight because I am thinking about my trip to the Doctors tomorrow to get a shot in my hip for my arthritis. I hope it helps because it is getting more painful. It's okay when I walk but it hurts when I stand still.

New Beginnings

Sunday, February 28, 2010

Tomorrow is March 1st. Another new beginning. I love the start of a new month because it seems like the slate is wiped clean -- we can start all over.

The first week of March
1. I will add dancing back to my routine. I will dance to one song each day. This always make me happy and it is a fun thing to do.
2. I will also work on my family tree every day for at least 15 minutes.
3. I will try a new recipe at least once this week.

    I'm gonna have to join you in the dancing. I love to dance too, but sometimes I look quite foolish. I may have to do it when nobody is around!! emoticon

Have you kept up with these 3 goals?

emoticon to a great friend!

Ten Days

Saturday, February 27, 2010

I am ten days into not eating after supper and it is going along pretty good.
I've only had a couple of nights that I really wanted to have some popcorn. Other nights it just seemed like I should eat something because I wanted it but it is OK to feel hungry.

I think that Iwill eat something right after I finish supper but I don't have any room for it. I am eating more fruits and veggies and they are filling me up.

Pretty soon I will be able to go out in my yard and pull all of the beautiful green weeds. Everything else is frozen and this is the latest that we have had these freezes that I can remember since I move to Florida in 89.
Well, I'll stop my rambling now and go and do some stretches.

    Do you know what an inspiration you are to me?!?! 10 day of not eating after supper! That is great! emoticon emoticon emoticon

I think I am going to try that! Don't know if I can do it. emoticon Might have to make some sugar free popcycles. Then it would be like eating flavored water! emoticon Does that count as eating?!?

emoticon Keep up the good work!

Feeling Better

Friday, February 26, 2010

I am feeling better about myself. The scale hasn't been moving but when we had to take our measurements on the 17th I found that I had lost 2 inches from my waist and 2inches from my hips.
I never really checked my measurementsbefore. My pants are getting too big and I am stepping on the bottom of them. I tried on new pants this week and I fit into size 14. It was a thrill but I didn't get them because I couldn't decide if they were Capri's that were too long or long pants that were too short.
I'll keep looking.

    Peggy, I did the same thing, checked measurements this time and lost some inches. I'm having the same issue with my pants. DH is always teasing me about my "baggy pants." I got some smaller ones and they were still kinda big. Can't quite get it through my head that I CAN wear smaller ones. LOL Figure I'll wait and get a new summer wardrobe for Myrtle Beach. :) I think the new swimsuit I bought last year and never wore is going to be too big! I got the MRSA infection and couldn't swim on that vacation. LOL

    Peggy - that's great! Congratulations! I never measure either. My father always used to joke - "are they long short pants or short long pants?" when Capri pants were. I used to get so mad at him. You reminded me of a very fond memory. Thank you. Lizzie

Forty Days

Wednesday, February 17, 2010

Today is the first day of Lent. I am not going to eat after 6 PM.
That is the worst time of day for me and I don't think it even matters that I save space in my food tracker to eat then. I think that I am just kidding myself and eating more than I think.
Only 39 days to go.
Maybe it will be a habit by then.

    This sounds like a great idea! I try to ddo this every day, but I find it's so hard! It's a bad habit to try and break. I wish us all luck. Lizzie
