Ice Cream Addict No More!

Sunday, March 03, 2013



Vanilla flavored frozen Greek yogurt served up in an attractive 4 ounce ramekin has replaced my usual overly generous 1-1/2 cup bowl of high-cal ice cream (I'm talking flavors with chunks of luscious chocolate and crunchy praline). There was a time when eating ice cream (several bowls) was a nightly occurrence for me. Putting a stop to that habit has been a huge plus
in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. And if I absolutely must have the real thing, thankfully one 4 ounce serving of ice cream will satisfy my craving. I'm happy to say, I have not craved that product in many many many months!

    That sounds wonderful! I'm a recovering ice cream addict! -- 1 pint = 1 serving -- emoticon oh wait... that isn't right (any more)...

I'll try the frozen Greek Yogurt. I saw it at the store, but wasn't sure it was going to deter me from mountainous portions cravings.

I've tried Greek yogurt, and drizzled some honey on it to satisfy my ice cream cravings - it was satisfying. Thanks for sharing your discovery!!! emoticon emoticon

2013...Getting OFF the Yo-Yo-Diet-Go-Round!

Monday, January 21, 2013

Many of us are all too familiar with the yo-yo diet pitfall. It's too easy a pattern to slip into. Those wonderful, healthy habits that enable us to reach our much desired weight loss goals get tossed aside during a weak, seemingly hungry moment...that innocent moment becomes an evening of nibbling, which is repeated the following night, then continues throughout the weekend, slipping into a week...or two....then two weeks turn into a month. Before long we're falling head-first off the cliff and cannot climb back up to save ourselves.

But after a breather of, say, several weeks, maybe months or even a year, we decide to give it another shot because we want more than anything to be healthy and fit and we're filled with new found energy, hope and resolve - WE KNOW WE CAN DO THIS! After all, we've done it BEFORE. And so the cycle starts all over again....and again....and again.........

After falling head first off the cliff a while back (one of many falls, by the way), I did manage to climb back up (very very slowly this time) to save myself. Now that I have finally reached my goal, I believe this most recent weight loss success will pave the rest of the way to my healthy, fun, fulfilling, ever evolving life adventure. The work does not end here, that is a given. I recognize that in order to maintain the weight loss, I must also continue to maintain all the important lifestyle changing habits that were crucial during the losing phase of my journey - strict portion control, drinking lots of water, getting enough sleep, careful meal planning, structuring activities around staying out of the kitchen after dinner, sticking to Workouts, etc. - these key factors and many other newly acquired habits (some not so new because don't forget, I've been riding the yo-yo-diet-go-round far too long now), have to remain FOREVER part of my day-to-day life in order to keep the weight OFF for good!

O - open minds

S - stay motivated

Just thinking out loud.....

Wednesday, April 01, 2009

I don’t know why I’m always so baffled when another month comes and goes. But March is over, it’s the first day of April and I’m giving myself the “beginning-of-the-month-you-can-keep-doing
-this” pep talk!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: “Maintenance is REALLY TOUGH!” It’s not a gripe, just a personal observation based on cold, hard facts! Even though I’ve been diligently staying within the 5-pound wiggle room range for a long time now, I do miss seeing numbers go down. But there’s no way I could lose more and be healthy, so I’m really focusing less on weight and working harder at exercise and building muscle.

My current mantra is, “I LOVE to exercise! I LOVE to exercise! I LOVE to exercise!” I do feel it is SLOWLY but surely sinking in and becoming true (before, it was more like, “say this phrase often enough and maybe you’ll believe it. HA! Right!”). This really makes the lifestyle change so much easier!

Anyway, this month, my workouts look something like this:

GYM (3X a week):
~30-60 min cardio on elliptical, recumbent bike or treadmill
~Lower Body ST: leg press (140 lbs, 3 sets of 12 reps), hip adduction and abduction machines (100 lbs., 3 sets of 12 reps)
~Upper Body: lat pulldown (50 lbs, 3 sets of 10 reps); bench press (20 lbs, 1 set of 12 reps)
~Ab Crunch machine – 50 lbs, 5 sets of 10 reps

(Gym workouts all depend on how crowded the place is; sometimes I have to break up the cardio because there is a 30 min. maximum. And, as I'd mentioned in an earlier blog, I eventually want to use more equipment)

HOME workouts (the rest of the week):
~Cardio: switching between outdoor walks and walking DVDs (30-60 min.); jump rope video (10 min., 3X); Taebo video
~Lower Body ST: Squats and lunges w/ 10 lbs; bridges, glute kickbacks, standing or lying adduction/abduction
~Upper Body: alternating bicep curls (10 lbs, 5 sets of 15 reps); one-arm dumbbell rows (10 lbs, 5 sets of 15 reps); dumbbell kickbacks (10 lbs, 1 set of 10 reps); lateral raises (8 lbs, 3 sets of 12 reps);
~Crunches (reg, rev, w/twist) and Planks (reg, rev, side)

Now that there are new Spark monthly challenges starting up, my motivation is HIGH and I’m feeling really great about the way things are going! So today on this first day of April, everything is positive and good! My fingers are crossed that my enthusiasm will continue!!! If it starts to wane, I’ll just have to peruse people’s Spark pages and blogs for new motivation and inspiration! There is a never-ending supply of both on this web site!

    Do not need a mantra.....since I always loved to exercise for the high I felt with it. But, the physicians have curtailed right not due to the gushing nose bleeds I get just from walking. So, unfortunately no exercise for me. When and if I feel better after the surgical procedure, time to think of exercise. In the mean time, I still try to stick to my spark nutrition high diet. emoticon emoticon

Way to go, Sukey Sue!! emoticon emoticon

    wow, sounds like a great work out. I'm trying to decide how to add to the soccer refereeing without experiencing burnout. LOL. I have decided that just refereeing isn't enough, I need to add more cardio and strength training.

I just started the 100 pushup challenge and the 200 crunch challenge. I can't do a real pushup, so I did the lady ones. I'll get to a 100 on those, and then try to start over on the challenge doing real ones. LOL.

Good job, you're doing great!!!

But my BFF called me this afternoon and has talked me into going to the gym with her at 7. Blah. But I know I'll be happier knowing it's done. I'm wanting to get into the swing of things this month. I've been making excuses for way to long...

regardles, you're doing great and you're a HUGE inspiration for people like me ;')

  Another upbeat & motivating blog ... thanks, Sue!
I agree, maintenance is hard work without the "thrill" of seeing the scale move and your body change. You look WONDERFUL and your exercise will keep you healthy, toned & strong.
I have a friend as slender as you & while she looks great, she calls herself "deceptively unfit" because she doesn't exercise at all (back problems).

My plan to lose 5 lbs. by NOW didn't happen because I've been too firmly planted in 'maintenance mode' & now I'm off on a week's vacation & going to enjoy it.
So I will have my work ahead of me when I return & EXERCISE will be key in that...
Thanks for the inspiration,
Nanc

So far Spark 2009 has been a pretty good year! I’m sticking to my maintenance plan, following through with my workouts, even adding new exercises and videos to the program to keep things fresh and fun. But after finally losing the weight, feeling real muscle on this body of mine, getting accustomed to the “less is more” philosophy on food, and learning to believe in myself…nothing could have made my Spark experience more meaningful and special than getting the email last night informing me that I had been nominated to be a Spark motivator!

What a totally unexpected surprise! I’m honored, thrilled and truly grateful for the votes of confidence! Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of you who submitted my name! For all the times I have been inspired and motivated by so many of you, I’m happy to know that I have been able to inspire and motivate others in return! That has been the best and most valuable part of my journey.

Just for the fun of it...

Sunday, March 08, 2009

So far all of my workouts have been fairly “easy” to do. The difficulty comes from the speed, duration and intensity that I use on various machines. Recently I’ve been thinking about adding variety to my exercise, perhaps taking a kickboxing class or some sort of dance class, etc, that requires a little more coordination and balance.

So a couple weeks ago I tuned into a YouTube cardio kickboxing video for “beginners” to see whether it was something I’d enjoy doing. I wanted to get a little taste beforehand to avoid totally embarrassing myself in public. LOL emoticon

The moves in the video looked pretty simple, just fast! Well, “simple” plus “fast” for this lady equaled awkward and goofy. But heck, I was by myself and it didn’t matter if I might trip over my own feet at any given moment. I did not trip over my feet, by the way. However I did come to the realization that for someone who was always pretty coordinated, I was feeling very uncoordinated and lost when it came to this particular choreographed workout.

I had a tough time keeping up with the steps. I spent more time trying to figure out HOW to do them than actually doing them, even after playing the video several times. So I did the intelligent thing and switched to a nice Coach Nicole 10-minute jump rope video, which I did three times…by no means was I giving up on kickboxing, I just didn’t want to end the exercise session that night feeling defeated.

Achy as I was over the next few days, I still had a lot of fun and felt like I accomplished something I never saw myself ever doing. But paying money for a class will be put on hold for now. Since that first attempt at kickboxing, I continue to “practice” with the same and other videos to give myself additional chances for getting this as “right” as I can. In the meantime, my regular workout routines continue to go smoothly every day of the week and keep me motivated to stay on track. emoticon

(I may still talk my husband into getting back to some ballroom dancing {he used to teach it}. THAT was great exercise too and fun – plus, I really miss doing it. And because it’s been such a long time since either of us have gone dancing, we might find it even more challenging than a kickboxing class!)

    If I had a husband who taught ballroom dancing I would be over the moon! Mine only does, what we affectionately call, "the bum dance." That's when you stick your arse out and wiggle it back and forth while pumping your arms in a peculiar fashion. It's not pretty, I can tell you that! LOL!

I've never had a boyfriend who could dance well, so I took up belly dancing! Now I don't need a man for dancing. Ha!

Your story of trying kickboxing reminded me of the time I took a step class and tripped on the step and fell over trying to keep up with the instructor. It was not a very graceful fall and I was fairly red-faced, but quickly got over it. I'm a much more graceful belly dancer than I was a step class student!

    My daughter used to kick box when it was a fad some 15 years or so ago! I tried doing with her and the video. OMG! It was quite tough in spite of being healthy...co-ordination was not easy - you are so right! You can and will do anything Sue, when you put your mind to it. However, I'll take dancing over kickboxing any time. Have your tried Zumba? That is a lot of fun. Belly dancing, Indian dancing also can be more fun exercises.

    Hi Sue ... I think it's great that you are broadening your horizons in the exercise world. I get so excited when I start something new! It keeps me revved up for several weeks but then I become bored and start looking forward to exercising less. We've got to keep it interesting so we keep doing it.

Ballroom dancing sounds great! The wonderful man I married has to be preyed out of his seat for the occasional slow dance ... dynamite wouldn't get him out of his seat for anything else. But since that's one of his few flaws I consider myself lucky. Still, I would love to take ballroom dance lessons if he would take them with me. Not only would it be good exercise it would make for great togetherness time!

    Wow. I'm totally jealous that your husband used to teach ballroom dancing. Mine wouldn't be caught dead on the dance floor. You should totally get back into that. Such great exercise! And so fun to watch!!

As for kickboxing, I suggest trying Turbo Jam. It is a mix of kickboxing and dancing. The best of both worlds. And being that it is a video, you can do it by yourself and not worry about looking uncoordinated.

    At least you are trying it. Everything is hard in the beginning....at least for me but I am probably the most uncoordinated person out there. I can't even figure out how to do the skip type of jumping rope. I have to jump with both feet like a little kid and I still get caught up on the rope, lol. Maybe if you watch the certain parts over and over again and practice one move at a time until you get that down. Eventually you'll have it all down and it will make a great workout.

I'm so jealous that your husband does ballroom dancing. That is something I've always wanted to try but dh is not a dancer at all. He said maybe sometime he'll try a video but he won't do a class.

Keep trying new things and have a great week!!
