Went to Gym

Saturday, March 01, 2014

emoticon

Walked on treadmill tonight. I wanted to go earlier today...after work, but got sidetracked. I am proud of myself that I actually did go to the gym today. I know that I need to continue to keep going to the gym aka working out on a very regular basis.

The one thing I need to work on is going to workout prior to supper time as I tend to overeat after my workout when I do it after supper time or near supper time.

So today I was doing good food wise and then went to gym and burned 213 calories on treadmill and then came home and kept eating the French toast bread...so yummy but not so good...

    Protein and carbs I hear are great after a good workout.

    Have you tried using a plan for your after workout meals?

I just started doing one last week and it helps me.
15 of protein and 30 of carbs?

Back to the drawing board.

Sunday, February 09, 2014

I have not been faithfully on SP for a loooong time. Not for any specific reason. Since January 2013 I have lost about 12 pounds or so. I was down 15 pounds at one point and even won the weight loss challenge at work ($200!) which was amazing. But lately junk food is where I am headed unsure why...It could be that my boyfriend only buys junk food when I repeatedly tell him I am DIETING or COUNTING CALORIES. He doesn't think calorie counting works and I know it does for me as it has in the past. Anyway, I know that I have none if any will power and if junk food is around I will most likely eat it. We were doing good for awhile, no ice cream in house, no chips, no candy but lately that has changed. I bought some fruit a couple days ago so that I can eat that instead of junk food when I am hungry.

Today I want to be held accountable. Friday and Saturday were very bad days for me with food and today is Sunday. A new day, I have a plan to eat good. Eat healthy. Workout out twice...
I wish I could instill it in my head that if I eat horribly then I NEED TO WORKOUT! But I was so tired yesterday after eating so much for breakfast, I didn't eat lunch had small dinner and lots of chocolate oops...and took a nap...

But again..today is a NEW DAY and I intend to eat better, eat healthier and workout at least once today if not more.

    I used to do the same thing. My son can eat anything and it doesn't affect him. Unfortunately, it DOES affect me. Because I'm lazy and hate to exercise, the weight kept piling on till I'm now diabetic.

Your boyfriend may not think calories count but let him know that if he really cares about you, he'll want to do want is best for you. You don't want to become diabetic, too.

    Every day is a new one. Stay focused and take it one day at a time ... and have a chat with the boyriend. If he' sabotaging your diet with junk food, maybe it's because he doesn't really want you to lose weight. Let him know why it's important to you.

So, I'm sitting here...debating if I should get out the PB I've been craving...

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

It's awful..usually I will not "think" about it and I will just get a spoon out and go to town. But I thought since I am already online I would post a blog about it so I can make myself accountable and if I keep talking about it here, maybe just maybe I WON'T get the peanut butter out. I love peanut butter, but have not control over how much goes in my mouth or should I rephrase that and say..I don't care how much goes in until later in the day when I am trying to eat good! LOL.

Another good reason to not get the PB out is that I have a dentist appt today and why not just brush my teeth so I can stop eating anything ...LOL..

Thanks SP for keeping me honest. I think I need to make more choices like this. Come on here and post something to keep me from eating foods I shouldn't be eating.

We went to Chilis yesterday and after all that happened, I realized we really shouldn't have gone...I had to take my daughter to drs yesterday as she is unable to walk on her right foot and they gave her a boot/cast which is so much easier for her than the crutches! She can't do any physical activity for 1 week! Which bums her out as she has dance and gym and she signed up for he relay for life this weekend and she is unable to participate. Poor kid...she isn't have the greatest of years...I keep telling her she is turning into me. I was accident prone from the 6th grade when I dislocated my right knee!

So...the PB is still in cupboard...which is a very good thing! I just need to keep my distance..

Going to brush my teeth!

have a great day!

    Actually, you CAN get single serving peanut butter sizes now for a better portion control. I know - it probably costs more, but it would be a temporary solution till either you get your cravings under control or get closer to your goal weight.

    Here's an idea for when you are craving peanut butter. I like to add pb to my smoothies because it adds protein. So, take some frozen fruit (about 1/2 a cup), add a little milk (this can be determined by how thick you would like the smoothie to be) and add 1 to 2 tbsp peanut butter. You get the peanut butter taste but maybe making the smoothie and drinking that will help you stay away from it for the rest of the evening. Also, here's another secret to a smoothie that one of my friends told me about. You can add fresh spinach to it and you don't taste it at all!!! I would start with maybe 1/2 cup if you want to do that.

Hope you were able to stay out this afternoon :)

    I am no nutritionist! BUT... If you have a cracker or some bread, with peanut butter, it is suppose to be good for you. you could even have some almond butter which is better. I like those whole wheat sandwich thins toasted with some peanut butter & a tad of apple butter. I would not consider that cheating at all. the results in the food tracker are impressive.

    If I open the jar of peanut butter, I have no control over the number of spoonfuls that go into my mouth. They should start making little squeeze packets of peanut butter for portion control, then I'd have a shot of getting just a single serving!

What a crazy day!!!

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

I woke up this morning to find a tick on my upper leg..yuck! Of course, I googled tick bites to find out what to do..as I "google" anything I don't know LOL...

Then, I took my daughter to school and I went to the gym. I just joined the gym last week and I am so very happy! I was a member of this gym a couple yrs ago and quit due to no job...even though I still am not working...I figured I could afford it as I don't have as many bills as I did then...Plus, I just love going and everything so it is worth it for me.

So, I did 3.5 miles the first time I went to the gym today and I did one minute intervals of jogging at 4.8 / 4.9 mph and then I went home and ate way too much CHOClate...ugh! I didn't have any on Easter ha ha...

So, I told myself that I had to go back to the gym and do another workout. So, I went back right before BL came on and I did another 30 min...which was a mile and half and also did some jogging intervals...but one was 5.3 mph as the 4.8 seemed too slow! Love that! I just want to keep building it each day.

So, I am proud that I did a second /last chance workout...but nervous about the scale tomorrow morning...I was doing soo good...

I think my biggest challenge is the food intake...I always eat more somehow...I am trying to eat real food and not processed foods...so that it is better for me. I just need to find more recipes on here that I like...as I am a picky eater LOL...

If you have any suggestions...feel free to post them!

Also, I took some pics of me today...so I am going to try to post some of them on here soon..I know, I know..I've been saying this for months LOL

    Hey! I haven't spoken to ya in a while. How are you? Are you journaling all of your food? That really helped me cut back on my food? I've also started buying more fresh veggies and fruits. That gives me something healthy to eat, and it isn't processed!!

Good job on your exercising! Stick with it, girl. God bless you!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Food is my issue, too. I love working out, but I am having a hard time shutting down the intake after dinner. Have fun at the gym!

Went out to Longhorn Steakhouse tonight...

Monday, April 18, 2011

I had promised my daughter and mother I would take them out to dinner for their birthdays (April 8 & 9) and tonight was the night. Though, I told myself to order "healthy" ...and I kinda did, it's just that we got the dessert..Chocolate Stampede (for 2) and it is really high in calories...maybe if I had any idea of how many calories maybe I wouldn't have eaten it or suggested we get it... .(.I looked up the calories for all the items I ordered tonight) except the chocolate stampede mainly cuz I didn't plan on having it, but since I have been doing really well for a few days I thought I would let myself splurge..I am just hoping that I don't gain that much weight.

Note to self: This is why I don't like to go out to eat! No Control!!!!

When I got home I did a second workout and did some Zumba moves to some hip music cds my daughter has. I don't feel that bad about eating so much..but we shall see how the scale is in the morning.

I did weigh myself when I got home and the scale said 2 more pounds, but I know that normally at night my weight does go up..so that isn't accurate at all. I will just eat well again tomorrow and the next day and so on and so on so I can focus on the weight going down

    Birthday meal calories donít count!! (lol oh, if only that were true!) You sound like you worked them off when you got home Ė thatís what itís all about Ė knowing that we can eat delicious goodies, but we just have to up the calories out!! Good luck on the scale today! :)

    You can't let a little fun ruin a birthday celebration! Sounds like you worked on balancing out the extra calories anyway. We have a longhorn Bbq here and I looove their ribs...but I only go there about once a year! lol!

    Glad you all had a great time! Start right back on track and you will be fine emoticon. I guess that's why I don't eat out as much either. No control! You said it right emoticon.

  You are right. Don't let today ruin it for you. Tomorrow just get right up and back on track. Sounds like you are doing exercise and food control. Good job!
