Still at it!!

Sunday, February 10, 2013

So on February 7th it was a month that I've been at this Healthy eating and exercising, still need to go weigh in and see results hope its good, my clothes are fitting better. Can't say I have more energy as I tend to be ADHD, and can't sit still very long! lol
I can say that I feel very accomplished since I've kept up the commitment. I went out to eat and to the movies with my husband, my sister and her husband, I had some anitpasta, a beer and half a cannoli. Went a little over but its ok, I felt in totally control. (super good feeling)
Thank so all my spark friends for the support, couldn't of done it without you!!!!
Have a super week and stay strong my friends!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Super Bowl

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

Everyone in my family is crazy about football except me, of course I always join in the fun even though I'm clueless? We got together at my sisters, and she asked me to bring a relish tray (she is so awesome she knows how hard I'm trying) I wanted it to be somewhat special so I thought I'd bring a healthy spinach dip I saw on pintrest. I went on a hike earlier in the day, thought that it would at least even out any goodie that I might eat. I had a wonderful time, my brother in law made grilled Brats and veggies and my sister made the most fabulous fruit tray, she even had watermelon? (crazy for this time of year and it was so good.) My husband wanted some chicken wings so I baked those. So overall went a little over my limit, but it was ok!
I love my family so much they are so supportive I feel so blessed!
Here's the healthy spinach dip recipe, its crazy good!

Have a wonderful week my spark friends, and thanks for always being there!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    People who have the support of their families are so much more successful. That is so good of them to allow what is typically a high fat, high carb night to be revised into a healthy one. You are a lucky girl!

Staying on track

Thursday, January 31, 2013

This by far has been my most challenging week since January 7th when I started the commitment to healthy eating and exercising. I have had many times this week, where it could of been bad, I didn't prepare well enough for snacks, I missed a few days of working out.
My phone broke had to go get a new one, frustrating to try to switch phones and be on line with the cell phone place, three different people helping me asking me the same questions.
I worked late trying to help my friends family with the memorial service on Saturday, then got home more emails, texting and phone calls.
Had to take my husband to the Dr., did I mention I was in an accident on Saturday! (It was not my fault, but I was in my sisters car) :0
Then this evening my friends mother called (my friend died Friday night) and was so angry at the world for taking her beautiful daughter away, and guess who she decided to take it out on? I couldn't say anything right? I was on the phone for 1 1/2 hours with her and I was at work. I know she was just grieving and not personal, but still it was exhausting!
Well despite everything and I think there is more, but I just can't relive anything else! LOL
I was able to stay in my calories and I did have moments where my mind went to food, and I did work out 3 nights this week.
I know I'm going to have weeks like this throughout my journey, so I'll just take it one day at a time.
What happiness tonight to open up my sparkpage and have some comments from my Spark buddies, meant a lot to me! Thanks so much to everyone, keep strong my friends! emoticon
My friend Vanessa in the pink with me and my sister. RIP my friend!

Got a free pedometer

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

My insurance has a program called Humana vitality its an emphasis on getting healthy and preventative measures to take to get healthy. I figured since I was already taking some steps toward good health, I might as well join. You actually get to earn points to buy stuff from pedometers, movie tickets and an I pad. I actually had enough points to get my pedometer today, (if you order it on line it takes up to two weeks) so I lucked out and got mine today! woo hoo! Now I'll get to earn more points counting my steps.
I continue to log my food and exercise!! Did 3.9 mile walk last night and 30 minutes of Belly dancing tonight!!
Keep up the good work my friends and Stay strong!!! emoticon emoticon /
