After Yesterday

Friday, March 26, 2010

I am staying within my range so far. Looking forward to going to the gym tonight. Redoing what the trainer suggested on Wednesday. I'm so sore today. But looking forward to working out tonight. Gotta be careful around dinner!! I should probably plan what I'm going to have. I know one thing....I'm not having "fast" food!! LOL!!

Have a great on track weekend.

Here I am thinking...I'm ok. I've got my calories under control. It's after lunch and I only consumed a little over 700 calories. I'm ok. Then life happened. I had an extremely busy afternoon and evening. All of the sudden it's 10:00 p.m. and I haven't had dinner yet. This is bad, cause the only thing I want is fast food. I'm NOT going home and cooking now. I start to think of the "healthy" fast food places I could go. Came up with Wendy's. Oh yeah, now that's a plan. As I sit in the drivethru I'm thinking of what "healthy" choice I could have. Over and over in my mind I'm thinking..."I want to be THAT healthy guy whose proud of his choices and is losing weight, yeah, I want to be that guy". So I think I'll just choose a baked potato and....need some protein....chicken nuggets. I add a baked potato with sour cream and chives. The sour cream is reduced fat. They can't be that bad.

OK. They weren't that bad. 220 calories for five, count them 5 chicken nuggets. Of course I got and order for my son (the rock star health nut) and...of course we had to split an order. After all, who gets full from 5 chicken nuggets! Well after eating I want to log my calories. LO and Behold!! The potato is a whopping 300+ calories. WHAT!! It didn't even have butter on it!! Whose actually doing the math here!!

So needless to say I went over my calorie count today. I've got to exercise tomorrow. I want to work off the damage I've done tonight. Oh boy, there is no "healthy" fast food out there. Gotta read Eat This/Not that a little closer!

Hope you had more success. Tomorrow is another day to climb this mountain.



One day at a time

Thursday, March 25, 2010

I'm a little sore from yesterday, but still pumped. After the gym I counted up my calories. I had only consumed 484. So of course I've got to get up to 1330. I wanted healthy choices though. So I had 5 oz of Sirloin steak, steamed veggies and 0.5 cup of mashed potatoes. That got me up to 1200+ but still needed more, so I had a cup of yogurt. Goal accomplished!

Now for today...I have to make sure I eat the foods that are healthy and enough of them. It's so weird that I find that when I'm in "diet" mode and I don't eat, I'm doing more harm than good. I'll add exercise to not eating enough and then I gain. I'm just really beginning to understand exactly "how" to lose weight. It's not just about not eating. It's about eating healthy and consuming the proper amount balanced with the proper amount of consistent exercise. I know I should know this, but now it's making real sense, not just head knowledge.

On to putting it into practice...


Snuck on the scale again

Wednesday, March 24, 2010

I'm not supposed to weigh more than once a week, but, I had to today. Just felt like it! I'm down another pound. Amazing. Well, met with the trainer today. She really worked me out!! I'm so tired, but good tired. She says to work this regimen twice a week. Day one down. Now have to find where I can fit in day two this week.

Rome wasn't built in a day, but at least twice a week!! Happy sparking!


Tuesday's Weigh In

Tuesday, March 23, 2010

OK! Down two pounds....probably water weight though. That's ok, anything that comes off is good, water, fat, whatever!! I'll take it! LOL Looks like 1350 calories a day works for me. We'll see how this goes for another week.

Thanks Botzzz for your blog. It's actually helping me stay on track!
