Not too good choices...

Tuesday, March 30, 2010

I'm not going to say that I cheated, or that I am feeling guilty for over in dulging. You know, you can do that every once in awhile, and it's not the end of the world.
My job had a business dinner this evening. We all went out to Kobe's Japanese Steakhouse. Work paid for it, so everyone splurged, including me.
I'm not going to say that I ate too much, because I wasn't really full when I left the table, but it sure seemed like I did eat too much. If anyone has ever gone to Kobe's you know how much food they serve.
Everyone else was orderig lobster tail and filet minon with scallops, and they were all drinking alcohol. I drank water, but I ordered filet minon, shrimp and scallops. The meal came with a small salad, some kind of onion soup, and plenty of vegetables, with japanese noodles and fried rice added. Maybe it has to do with the fact that they cook it in front of you, so you're not eating fast, or eating a lot while their cooking one item at a time and transferring it over onto everyone's plate. I don't know, but the food was exellant and everyone left feeling good.
I'm not guilty of over eating.
When I came home, I changed my clothes and took the dog for a 1 1/2 mile run! Burned about 150 calories easy, and I feel good. It was just one day out of many days that I feel that I can easily get back on plan in the morning and not have any ill effects from this.
On top of everything, it was a BEAUTIFUL day!!
Have a great night!

    I used to live in Japan. I miss the food sometimes! And most Japanese people are thin!

    Sometimes you just have to have a little 'splurge' day. It makes it easier to stay on track the rest of the time. emoticon

Better day...

Wednesday, March 24, 2010

Today was't quite as bad as I'd feared it was going to be. I didn't have a well rested sleep last night, which is going to be remedied tonight, so I thought that I was going to be dragging all day. I had some extra protein this morning, which really helped perk me up. I didn't need anything extra until just before quitting time, and then I ate a powerbar. That helped wake me back up again. Got to the gym and worked out on the elliptical for an hour. I know I really didn't need that because I had walked the office this morning, but I had some stress that needed to be burned off, and the elliptical is the only way to do it!
I'm still working on adding more fruits and veggies into my eating plan. It's hard to do! I did manage to eat a couple of servings of both today, however, so it's a start.
That's all I have to say for tonight. Good night!

Tough day.,..

Tuesday, March 23, 2010

Today was a tough one. Lots of busy and I'm bushed! It was a positive day, I'm not saying that I, in any way, was thinking negative thoughts, it was just too busy to think too much either
I will be SO glad when tax season is OVER with!! I am SO OVER IT!!!
The best part of busy days, is going to the gym afterward and working all the stress off! I didn't do that today, unfortunately, but I'm still walking in the mornings and getting my 10,000 steps in most every day, with a break once a week.
Tomorrow, we'll hit the gym after work, and I plan to work my tail off, letting go of the stress of today and tomorrow! I'm very much looking forward to it!
Right now, it's time for bed. Good night!

Made it through the weekend...

Sunday, March 21, 2010

Although it was a tough one because of the snow we had. We just did not feel like going out into it this morning to head to the gym! We did end up going out shopping as I have got to get new clothes for work. I've given all of my fat clothes away, so I don't have much to wear! LOL While it feels good, it's also hurting the pocket book some. Penneys had a great sale going on and I saved 30% on what I did get. Now I have some mix and match items I can wear.
I still can't believe I fit into size 8 to 10! I'm still looking at clothes in the bigger sections!
My doctor's not going to believe it when she sees me next Monday! With all of the weight I've lost, I'm really hoping that she'll be able to take me off of blood pressure and cholesterol meds. Here's hoping!
Tomorrow is the beginning of a brand new week and I'm not going to start it on other than a positive attitude! WOOHOO!!! BRING IT ON!!!

Finally the weekend!!!

Friday, March 19, 2010

This week has been SO busy! Work is the major part of that, but coming home every day to a dirty, messy house doesn't help. Being that we go to the gym 5 out of 7 days of the week, and don't usually get home before 6:30 or 7:00 pm, it's hard to find the time for Sparking.
On the plus side, I haven't been letting anything get me from a positive mood every day. Sure, it's been busy, but it's a good busy, most of the time and that makes the time fly. It makes for time that I don't think about co-workers.
My goal for this weekend is to eat more fruit and veggies. I haven't been doing too well in that department. I also plan to head to the gym tomorrow morning, early, then go to the thrift store to see if I can find some tops and skirts for work. I've had to empty more clothes from my closet and dresser simply because they don't fit anymore. I'm never going back to that size again, so why keep them? In the meantime I need new work clothes!!! emoticon I just pray that it doesn't snow so much that we can't go out.
Have a good night friends!
