Day 5!!! Half Way there!

Sunday, May 06, 2007

Okay, I had to go out early this morning and along the way back home my daugther asks for breakfast, so I stopped by MickeyD's. she wanted a sausage biscuit and oraange juice. I didnt get anything because I wanted some cereal! well a few minutes later I was riding down the street and the sausage biscuit was smelling so good. I was strong though. I didnt realize I was hungry til I smelled that sausage biscuit.

Day 4

Saturday, May 05, 2007

Ha Ha my mom thinks I am crazy. A friend of mine invited me out to eat tonight, I said yes. I told my friend to make a choice on where we were going, I figured I would make do where ever we go. So we went out for pasta. I got penne marinara. Anyone who knows marinara is just the pasta sauce without meat. Its really not bad, I had that on top of my penne noodles. My friend wanted to know if I eat meat, I told my friend yes I eat meat, just not for the next few days. I wont be eating them. I called my mom after dinner and she was like ewwwwww.............but its truly not that bad. I like noodles and sauce, not alot of meat..............Its funny though because I almost ate a piece of ham today unconsciously trying to show an 18 month old that the ham was for eating not to put on the chair and roll it around, but I didn't eat it. So I am still safe. LOL I caught myself and said hey no meat. I still dont feel as though I am missing out. So I am good to go!!!

Don't give up!!!

Friday, May 04, 2007

A man from the gym today told me not to give up!!! I don't know why, he said something about people work out for 3 months then give up, hmmmm.......... Thats not me, not anymore, I have been working on my weight all of my life, HOWEVER I got really serious about it in July 2006. I am not giving up on me, I am finally putting my health first and foremost, I want to be the best me I can be. I am not giving up, I told him that is not an option. In fact he told me he gave up on himself and I looked him like why??? He is working back on himself now, but my mindset right now is this, To give up on our goals is like saying, you are not worthy, you don't deserve the best, you don't care for yourself, and you don't LOVE yourself." I refuse to let myself go, I LOVE me, and I am not going to let myself go, because I feel good when I know I am taking care of me and I want to be here for my daughter, and I want her to know that it takes time, and dedication to be healthy, feel good, and look good.

    I agree completely with not giving up. If we don't care enough about us who will. It starts with "the man in the mirror" as Michael Jackson said. We are worth it. No matter what I can't give up either.

By the way my sister went without meat and lost 20 pounds in like a month. She tried tofurkey and meatless "chicken" nuggets, if you have a Kroger store where you live the have an entire vegan section.

Day 3!!!

Friday, May 04, 2007

I am still doing it big. To be honest I dont feel as though I am missing out on anything. I really don't. I am really considering limiting my meat intake after I finish this challenge, Maybe eat chicken or fish 2-3 times a week. I don't need that much meat.

Breakfast- post select crunchy pecan cereal/ w/ 2% milk, banana

Lunch - baby carrots, pnut butter & jelly sandwhich, with some sweet potatoe chips

Dinner- slice of cheese pizza and some baked beans vegetarian style,


Day 2!!!

Thursday, May 03, 2007

Okay I have to write these down before I forget them. Meatless opportunities veggie pizza, Subway veggie sandwich, veggie lasagne, stir fry veggies with rice, salads with egg, there are many meals without meat, meatless wings (j/k), I did pretty good last night. Tonight I am eating some cheese filled ravioli with spaghetti sauce, no meat and some mixed veggies. I am eating a veggie sandwich from subway for lunch. I am going to try it. just veggies on my favorite honey oat bread. Salad wraps should be good. I got some red beans and rice to make later this week, and I plan on trying to make some spinach cheese pie and and spinach casserole souffle. Yes I am a spinach fan. Yummy, I love cheese. I got that from my mom, we put cheese on everything.
