Counting Backwards, Day 29

Thursday, July 19, 2012

Whew! In spite of last night's insomnia, I got a lot done today and plenty of exercise. Big accomplishment: I got all the way through a pilates video and didn't have to substitute anything. Granted, I took the easier options when there were options, but I did it! I can really feel a difference since I stepped up my workouts. Now if only my scale would get the message....

    Wait for it! Wait for it! emoticon Sometimes our scales play games with us and make us wait for results much longer than we wish too. Nevertheless it will move and in the right direction too. I am sure of it! You are doing so good. Keep up the great work my friend!!

"I decided to take an aerobics class..." LOL

Thursday, July 19, 2012

I don't remember where I found this, but I thought it was a hoot!

"I decided to take an aerobics class. I bent, twisted, gyrated, jumped up and down for an hour. But, by the time I got my leotard on, the class was over."

Counting Backwards, Days 31 and 30

Wednesday, July 18, 2012

Day 31 was very busy, but productive. I had business to do with my mother-in-law's estate, and things are looking good about the sale of her house. But it meant more eating on the run at odd times and not keeping track very well. I was grateful that I'd gotten in my workout early in the day. I spent the evening at a very interesting dream workshop.

Day 30 - I'm really pleased with myself today. I've been doing the Sweatsuit to Swimsuit Challenge, and my video was a short and easy resistance band workout. I added a 20 min cardio sculpt video for more cal burning. This one was hard, though do-able with a few modifications, but it sure went on and on. MORE? Yes, because when I finally got to the end, I noticed it ran for 28 min and 30 sec, which in my book is a lot closer to 30 min than 20 as listed. The good part--I could do it! emoticon

330 breakfast
359 lunch
168 snack
348 dinner
200 snack 2

Counting backwards, Day 32--BAD, but good

Monday, July 16, 2012

386 breakfast
340 lunch

and downhill from there. BAD food day. However, I am not feeling bad about it, not feeling guilty, not mentally beating up on myself because I learned something useful. I wasn't craving sweets; I wanted FATS. I've been trying so hard to get back on track and stay there, that I've been eating mostly on the low end of my range and--significant, I think--slightly under on fats. I think my body rebelled against all the non-fat stuff I've been consuming. The more I thought about it, the better I felt. This is my gut-level intuition telling me something important. In addition, I realized that I don't intend to eat non-fat food the rest of my life. I don't mind low-fat, I don't mind exercising portion control and making better choices, I've learned to enjoy daily workouts. Yes, the non-fat foods may help me lose more quickly, but in the long run, that's less important than eating in a way that I'm more inclined to maintain. I think I'm done with skim milk and fat-free yogurt. It may take me a little longer to reach my target weight, but I think I'll be less likely to have the constant struggle I've been having with staying in cal range if I'm getting what my body is telling me is enough.

After that revelation, I felt...clearer in myself about the direction I'm taking. I drank extra water and walked an extra 30 minutes, advice I once read on ending a binge. Honestly, in spite of the food, I feel really good about today.

For the record, this is my 11 month Sparkversary, and I'd say those insights were a good present. emoticon

Down hill from there?
