Still here, going out to lots of parties...

Sunday, December 18, 2011

I haven't blogged in a few days, I have been so busy with the holiday season! I am getting ready to go out shopping, but wanted to take a sec to tell you guys I am still alive :) Roxy is all better now, too. The vet injected a fluid bubble under her skin (for dehydration), and I held her off food until the evening. I kept her at work with me so I could keep a good eye on her. She is the sweetest dog in the world. I ended up getting a throat infection and got antibiotics friday. I am doing better but my sinuses are still bothering me and my voice is real scratchy.

I have made sure to get on and track my food. My cals the last two days have hit between 1500 and 1650! It's the parties! I am being careful about my food choices and portion sizes but it is still adding up. Actually, it's the alcoholic beverages that are adding up!! I am not drinking a lot, they are just a lot of calories. I threw my staff's holiday party last night. We all had a great time. I hired a DJ and we all danced for a solid two hours. We all had a lot of laughs. Today I am going to my third dinner party in three days. It is at my Assistant's house. Her house is decorated inside with so many strands of Christmas lights (the little bulbs) that she does not turn any of her house lights on during the Christmas season. It is beautiful. I will take some pictures and post them. Anyway, I am going to try to cut my cals down a little more so I don't go overboard. After this party, I should be back to my normal eating at home until Christmas Eve. I am not expecting a weight loss this week, hoping that I maintain my current weight!

I hope you are having a great holiday season.

    I am glad Roxy is okay.

I put Vicks Vapo Rub on one of my hubby's tube socks and put the glob of Vicks over my larynx, pin it around my neck and sleep with it on all night. I use this for sore throats and sinus problems and it helps bring the voice back from laryngitis.

I wouldn't go under on your calorie count since you are sick. Your body is trying to fight infection.

    Thanks everybody. She is back to her normal, little self. She got dehydrated so the vet put a bubble of fluid under her skin and I kept her off food til night time. I took her to work with me and kept and eye on her. She is all better now. Thanks for your concern!

On The Way to the 120's, Santa Claus and Proper Planning...

Wednesday, December 14, 2011

Consumed 1229 cals today. Lost another pound - 1 more and I am out of the 130s!! Yes! I am getting close to my goal weight!

Today was a big day at work - Santa Claus visited the kids. It was so much fun to watch. We had a tree trimming party in the afternoon and I also got the place cards designed, printed and cut for the holiday staff party I am throwing Saturday night. The menu has healthy choices in the mix. The entrée choices are salmon or filet mignon. I booked a DJ so everyone can dance off dinner. I also bought bath and bodywork's vanillatini shower gel, body cream and hand sanitizer for gifts - I still have to wrap them in the holiday bags. FUN!

I put the lights up on the Christmas tree after dinner tonight. I didn't put the decorations on yet - giving my foot a break. Between the white lights all along our deck rail, our tree and a couple other decorations with lights, we don't have to turn a light on in our family room at night. It is nice and cozy.

Tomorrow is going to be a bear. I have to pick my son and his girlfriend up at 7 AM and take them to the airport (they are going on a cruise), then it is off to work then at night to the school holiday show with my husband. I will be packing my meals in my cooler. I don't think I will be home until around 9:30 tomorrow night! I am going to suggest chinese tomorrow night for dinner - we have an awesome place across the street from work. She doesn't put salt or oil in my order. I have to get doggy time in there somewhere - I may take her to work with me tomorrow.

Have a great night!

    You are getting so close! I wish I could take my dog to work with me, if I had my own room back I could. One of these days. Enjoy the Chinese.

Ate More, Taking the Night Off, and The Biggest Loser Finale...

Tuesday, December 13, 2011

Consumed 1205 cals today.

The last couple days I didn't eat very much. I was not that hungry. The scale didn't budge! So, today I made sure I ate more. I still wasn't that hungry but I want to make sure I am eating right - especially while my foot is still healing. I am also taking vitamins with extra vitamin D. I do need to start strength training again too. I want to do it before going to work, but this week I have to go in real early and I am getting home late :(

I was tired today too. I have been running around like a nut the past week - between parties, work, moving my son, and Christmas shopping. Tonight my husband asked if I wanted to go with him to my son's house (to do repair work). I opted out! I told him I needed to give my foot a break AND wanted to hang out with Roxy and my other son. My husband surprised me by bringing home a Christmas tree before he left. It smells so good! It is going to sit un-decorated until tomorrow night!

So here I sit with my favorite dog, surfing SparkPeople.com and waiting for the Biggest Loser Finale to start! This is the first season of watching that I actually stuck with my eating plan the entire time and lost weight as the contestants lost massive weight! I actually tear up when watching the Biggest Loser finales, the transformations are amazing and they work so hard. I always hope they all keep the weight off. It has to be hard when they lose it outside of their comfort zone quickly and then are plopped back home.

I hope you had a great day and are seeing results!!

    I don't watch the show. When I see the trainers yelling at them while they are exercising, I wonder if any of the contestants have ever had heart problems during a workout.

I think when everyone has the same goal, that it is easier to lose weight. When they go back home, it is up to them to keep up the exercise and proper eating.

My Mom still tries to feed me when I visit her at the nursing home. She will offer her food to me and cut a sandwich or offer her dessert. I tell her I am a diabetic and can't eat it. This is about the only way I can get her to stop trying to share with me. I want her to eat what she is served, she needs to gain a little weight.

    Looking forward to the Finale too, but it will have to wait til tomorrow. Sons band concert tonight. Kids have finals and getting ready to go on vaca. How did you figure out how much to eat? I don't know how to adjust it according to increased workouts, cardio vs strength training. I'm guessing I am around 1200 per day, give or take. I know it matters but I have lost 10 lbs since Oct so for now it is working for me. I don't want John to win, he has earned all his successes, but there is something irritating about him. Do you think he will gain all his weight back like Bob predicted?

Good interview, Good day...

Monday, December 12, 2011

Consumed 865 cals today

It was another long, busy day - but in a good way. This morning I noticed that my big toe was moving over the next toe even though I had the soft cast on to make it go the other way! I called the Doctor and they told me to go ahead and take it off since it isn't working -- I was thankful to not have to wear the boot anymore. Looks like I am definitely going back to Pt - BUT I am going to try another place.

I got a lot done at work, left around 4 and got more Christmas shopping done. I still had 35 mins left before my interview, so I ran in and got a manicure. I got out right in time to meet the interviewee. I love interviewing people over dinner - I can really get to know the person better and know if they will "fit in" with the others who work for me. We chatted for 4 hours!! I think this person would be a good fit; I just have to now figure out who will be doing what, etc. I have to also figure out how to get the other manager out of there in a calm, effective manner. I am really hoping that she is looking for another job. That would be the best.

Well, it is 11:30 PM and I am going to hit the hay! Night all!!

    How did you accomplish 865 calories in one day when you sat over a dinner for 4 hours? Good for you, it's really impressive :)
With your bad food, how are you training? I need some ideas, since I'm broken as well !!
I'm just watching my caloric intake, and it seems to be doing well, but no clue how long until I plateau.
Keep it up!!
