Out of Control!

Saturday, June 30, 2012

My eating habits were out of control this week and I make no appologies. On my birthday I allowed myself to enjoy birthday cake, we ate a healthy as possible at the Polka Celebration, and on one day I exceeded my 2000 calorie limit for no particular reason. emoticon

Here it is. My crazy week. Tomorrow is a new week.

All-Scripture Daily Devotional

Monday, June 25, 2012

I found when my husband was scheduled for a major back surgery (all is well, by the way! Prayers answered. emoticon). Everyday, I read the All-Scripture Daily Devotional. There is one for the morning and one for the evening. It is bits of scripture from different parts of the Bible pieced together to create one, cohesive devotion. At the bottom of each page is the list of scriptures used.

I've enjoyed this resource for more than a year and wanted to share it. emoticon if you are interested, cut and paste the address below. Click on today's date on the resulting calendar.

The Next Available Representative...

Saturday, June 23, 2012

Looking for some customer service, I found myself on hold. I clipped my pedometer on and started walking around the house while I waited. 900 steps later, I got the help I needed.

My daily calorie limit is 2000. Below is how I did staying within those limits this week:

Sat., June 16 1,944
Sun., June 17 - 2,005
Mon., June 18 2,072
Tues., June 19 2,242
Wed., June 20 2,074
Thurs., June 21 1,944
Fri., June 22 1,998

I would have stayed within my 2000 cal. limit on Tuesday had I not nibbled at my son's meal left overs at Atlanta Bread.

This shows some improvement from weeks past. emoticon

Coffee House

Friday, June 15, 2012

I've experienced an overwhelming feeling of boredom with the food in the house today. Good thing I ate at a coffee house this afternoon. I had a hummus veggie wrap (yummmm!). emoticon That may have prevented some sort of crazy binge. My tummy feels satisfied for the evening.

Here's how I did following my 2000 calories/day limit this week:
Sat., June 11 2,175
Sun., June 10 - 1,998
Mon., June 11 2,023
Tues., June 12 2,006
Wed., June 13 1,923
Thurs., June 14 1,786
Fri., June 15 2,005

Happy weekend! emoticon

    I love food and can't eat the same stuff all the time or I get bored too. I have recently tried a few new snack recipes Baked Kale Chips and Roasted Chickpeas. My kids like both recipes which is saying something LOL ! I loved both recipes as well ! Another snack that kids & I eat are Edamame soy beans in the shell (get at Walmart/Kroger, etc..) and I just heat them and then we snack (whole bag is only 250 cal). I think my kids like them because they are fun to open pods and eat the beans whatever works ! I will add you as a friend emoticon

Cardio Kickboxing

Thursday, June 14, 2012

Coach Nicole's 10 minute cardio kickboxing video is awesome! I did it twice in order to keep my fitness minutes up. I worked up a sweat, but it is something I can manage to do a few times a week. The low impact status of the routine is correct. The kickboxing moves were fun, too! emoticon

If you give it a try, let me know:
