Bits and bites

Thursday, April 04, 2013

Why do I eat non-stop when I get home? I do great during the day at work. I bring only what I need for the day. Everything is measured and calculated, balanced and healthy. As soon as I walk in the door and start supper, the demons are unleashes and it is a feeding frenzy. I eat ˝ my supper while cooking, then I have my plate portion, then I will nibble at the left overs on my sons plate. I get about a 2 hr break until I start preparing lunches for the next day to witch I open the gates to yet even more bites and bites. I am not even conscious of it anymore. It’s become part of the process. How can I stop this? I am open to any and all sugestions!!! emoticon

Spunky lady

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

I had it all planed. 5 days off, yoga every day, create some art work, healthy groceries & spring clean the house. The weather was perfect. As perfect as April weather can be on the east cost of Canada. Plus seven degrees Celsius is practically shorts weather. I managed to get some spring cleaning done; we went for a trail walk with our son and the neighbors kids. We even took their dog. I manage to get 3 paintings done in the studio but no yoga. We did however take a ride out to see my grandparents. My grandmother is 84 and is in better shape then I am. She looks like a little porcelain doll. All 4 feet 11 inches of her is prim & proper with amazing posture. My son calls her Memere Blanche (White Grandma) She inspires me. I asked her what her secret was to living such a long healthy life. She raised her shoulders: “Beets me” she said with a twinkle in her eye, a smirk on her face and glass of wine in hand. She has spunk! She still doesn’t think she is old. She was getting her hair done at my mom’s salon a few years back and she took a close look at herself in the mirror. I’ve aged a bit in the last few years haven’t I ? Your 82 what do you expect I thought. She is always up to date with the trends. Her home is more modern than mine. She is a very proud woman. She also informed me that she does yoga everyday morning for 30 min and has done so for the past 5 years.

So my week-end didn’t go as planned and my weight lose wasn’t great ( 0.4 lbs. )
With this month’s RISE and SHINE challenge, I am focusing on being proud of who I am, where I come from and paying homage to my grandmother. I to will do my yoga for 30 minutes every day.

Facing facts

Thursday, March 21, 2013

As I read some of the featured blogs, I am truly inspired to get my act together. I was looking for images of myself to add to my profile and realised that I really have no full length images. Coincidence…I think not. As I embark on this life style change, healthy living, ageing gracefully & healthfully, call it what you will. I need to FACE more than the face looking back in the mirror. I am going to bite the bullet and take a full length shot of myself tonight to add to my profile as a point of reference. I will be taking a monthly photo of myself and posting it in hopes that seeing the transformation (as one would when pregnant but hopefully in revers) will keep me focused on sculpting my shape more than the number on the scale.


Counting conundrum

Sunday, March 17, 2013

This weeks lunch box go to. How am I suppose to count cals in this? Same as my pastas sauce? I have no real recipe. I just throw things together. A little of this, a little of that. Nothing is measured.....some more of this....Oops.... I am out of that so let use this.
It's how I create. It's the artist in me.

I am open to suggestions.

    That's going to be a tuff one. But If I am going to get this right once and for all I will have to invest the time, measure and log the ingredience and repete the same recipies. Just have to ones that works.
I guess short cuts won't cut it if I want these last 15 lbs to go.

Thanks guys

    Measure everything. Each item has nutrition labels. Hope that helps.

    It sounds like you know the kitchen well so it would seem to me that you could (even though its not the best idea) probably do some estimating and keep it on the higher side just to be safe. Or have some one else watch you and try to measure and use taste to get it right. Good luck
