Food poisioning...

Monday, March 16, 2009

I don't know if that is what I have but I believe it is....woke up with a migraine this morning and couldn't make it to work...I won't be going to my TEAM class tonight either...I know I won't be making it to 1700 calories today cause I don't want to eat anything!!!

I am drinking my water and will get some soup/crackers....I plan to go up to my job and get my laptop so I can work from home as well..don't want to get that far behind....

10,000 Sparkpoints!!!!!

Sunday, March 15, 2009

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Well alright...I got my 10,000th Sparkpoint today!!!! Seems like it took forever to get there but I finally did...we just keep chipping away at the total trying to get to that next trophy, huh? Just like weight loss...we just keep going at it until we get to our goal!!!!!

This is a new week and I have determined that I will try to get the 1700 calories/day goal that the nutritionist set for me...I still think that's too much but I'll try it her way for a week or two....it can't hurt, right??

No picture today...I'm celebrating my points!!!!!

TTYL!!!!!!!!!!!!

  


Week...ends!!!!!!!!!!

Saturday, March 14, 2009



I love the weekends...2 days of no appts, meetings, co-workers, deadlines, forms, conference calls, etc.....its pretty much an open schedule...you can look forward to doing what you WANT to do...the daily hustleof not having enough time and the drains of the work WEEK have ended...

But with that ending also comes the chance to end 5 days of being consistent with eating right, preparing for upcoming week, going to the gym, cooking healthy meals, holding ourselves accountable, giving in to emotional eating due to boredom/loneliness, etc...a lot of temptation surrounds us and we need to make wise choices...

I didn't overeat today but I also didn't make any preparations for next week...I should have gone grocery shopping but I didn't...I just wanted to be lazy and I was!!! I didn't overeat but I didn't stick to my normal schedule(I woke up late and therefore all the timing for my meals was "off")....I did get my water in (10 glasses) and I also bought a spice rack so I can start experimenting with other seasonings/tastes..

Tomorrow I will be going to the gym to get some strength training in..I plan to do 30 mins and then 30 mins on the elliptical....Sunday traffic at the gym is normally light....

Enjoy the rest of your weekend...I know I will!!!!!!!!!!!! emoticon

Learned something new tonight....

Friday, March 13, 2009



After my class I decided to walk on the treadmill a little longer...my trainer, Jacob, told me that anything after an hour of cardio really just washes out any progress that I made the hour before...go figure...I looked it up and saw reports that validate that info...not that I didn't believe him but I thought the more cardio I did, the better....

Well I stopped my "extra" workout and got a protein smoothie and went to Petsmart...I plan to go tomorrow evening to do a little strength training...there were only 2 people in TEAM Class tonight..there is normally about 8 of us but folks went out of town or had other committments...

Jacob wasn't easy on us and kept us working the entire hour...and he stood there....right there...right there watching...right there looking at his stop watch to make sure we worked each rotation for the exact amount of time...right there making sure our form was right when we did dumbbell exercises...right there making sure we were stretching our resistance bands for our "window washer" exercises...yes right there to make sure we didn't cheat...

I'm not mad though...the class went fast and we talked the entire time about stuff so the workout wasn't that bad...I mean I asked for motivation and accountability right? I got what I asked for emoticon

  


1700!!!!

Thursday, March 12, 2009



Those are the amount of calories the nutritionist said I should consume per day...no more, no less..1700 exactly..not sure how realistic that will be for me but that's what she said...

I know the rationale for eating more calories when you are working out but seriously, I eat plenty through the day and stay within my SP calorie range and that is a chore..I do not like constantly shoveling food into my mouth (every 2-3 hours) and I'm not going to FORCE myself to eat...I'll regret it later...

I am going to have to seriously look into that a little more...she also gave me a "meal plan"....um, no....boooooooooooooooooooooooooooo..they go by the American Diabetes Association guideline so I will be looking on that website soon to learn/understand their exchange system...most of the people in my TEAM class have told me that they don't follow the meal plans they have either...they journal what they eat (for the most part) but they don't obsess over every small detail....

My class last night was good..I realized how much I need to work out my upper body...those dumbbell presses were KILLING my shoulders...our trainer told us that it would get easier as the class progressed (he saw the looks on our faces..lol) and that if we came in today we needed to only do cardio...I plan to go but if it's raining like it was yesterday I may just take a break emoticon

    yeah 1700 may seem like a lot but trust them - they are proffessional. you could experiment with a week of lower calorie eating and a week of higher calorie eating and see which one produces results. interesting...

    Wow - what class are you taking & how did you find it? It sounds really interesting. I did the ADA diet when I was pregnant (I was a gestational diabetic). I understand where you're coming from as far as wanting to kinda branch out on your own. I also think you're taking the right approach by researching to understand their methods. Girl - if we keep this up - we'll be lookin' more fierce than we do now in no time!

You're doing a great job - keep up the good work!

    Sounds like you are doing great! At first I thought getting the meal plans would be such a bother (I had gestational diabetes with all of my pregnancies) but then I found helpful when I couldn't figure out what to eat! It got boring eating the same ol thing to get to my calorie count. Good luck with the workouts! emoticon
