Monthly Summary for January

Friday, February 03, 2012

Here goes for the whole month------some good, some not so good........all needs improvement

calories-----------above guidelines 4 times---------below guidelines 2 times

fat.......above guidelined 3 times........below guidelines 1 time

carbs......above guidelines 0 times..........below guidelines 4 times

protein.........above guideline..0 times.........below guidelines 2 times

fiber..........above guideline 0 times.........below guidelines 8 times

sodium.......above guidelines 6 times

weight down 1 pound for this weight down 6 pounds from Dec. 1....averaging 3 pounds per month.

Improvements to work on for February.........increasing fiber, decreasing sodium to be within guidelines 100%

calories, fat, carbs within guidelines 100%

because i have a sodium intolerance, this really surprised me. Some of the items that recorded high sodium didn't have the stated amount because I made them at home and left out the salt so the number of times isn't absolute. I can tell when I've gone over my sodium level because my hands get numb and I get dizzy----didn't have any of that this past month (that I can remember). My feet were swollen a couple of times indication fluid retention.

Now, I know what to work on for report after Feb. 29..

Weigh In for Jan 26

Thursday, January 26, 2012

Weigh in this morning at TOPS, my weight was the same as last week. Must look at possibly adjusting my calorie intake. Also, have to get head and heart to begin working together. It's tough when head says one thing and heart says another.

As long as the weather stays nice, I should be getting out an walking---have to get an attitude adjustment toward this.

I sure am looking forward to the warmer weather and getting outside to my roses. I am considering starting some tomato plants for container growing. I sure love those fresh tomatoes.

    right about the regular big bath towel problem. There's a steam room at my gym that i have used a few times, using either their big towels or my beach towel.
but then i got to thinking how i must look to the other ladies there, at least like a beached whale, or something. now i can either go home to shower or just go to work sweaty. i could have much more fun if i could get over these problems, i'll say!

    Silly goals sound fun...

To not use an extender on the airplane. I was able to to this two years ago but things have gone down hill and up in weight.

To win the challenge my niece and I have. That is to loose 25 pounds by June. All I have done is gone up in weight! Thyroid has been giving me fits with four nodules.

    I bought a new pair of pj's without trying them on last spring. Found out they were too tight for comfort when I got home. I want to wear them this spring.

  I agree with the towel!! It would be nice to be wrapped completely. I would like to walk into a regular(not speciality) store to purchase a bra!! I would like to lose several cup sizes!! I think our "silly" goals are important to help us make it to the bigger picture.

    You will be so pumped when you accomplish those goals. For the longest time mine was to fit in my chair at work better then we moved and I got a new one but my original type of chair is in the lunch room and it is a great feeling to fit in it comfortable instead of it coming up with me and having to push it off.

    Those aren't silly goals! I hated walking around with the towel exposing half of my body! I want to fit into my old jeans and I really want to go down a bra size. Or 3. Not quite as interesting as yours but goals none-the-less! :)

4 Week Report

Saturday, January 21, 2012

Since I began tracking on December 29 I have been:

calories-----------above guidelines 3 times...........below guidelines 2 times

fat..........above guidelines 1 time......below guidelines 2 times

carbs......above guidelines 1 time..........below guidelines......2

protein.......below guidelines 1 time

fiber......below guidelines 12 times

sodium.........above guidelines 4 times

I will be working on adding fiber to my diet. I thought I was low on protein instead fiber is my downfall. I will be watching my sodium levels closer.

Goal for the next 4 weeks is to be within the guidelines 100%
