Dr. Oz & Pea Protein Powder & Cravings!

Monday, October 29, 2012

Been watching Dr. Oz again!!!

Last Friday I was watching his show and he described me perfectly! Eat all day!!
I eat my meals, then snacks, snack some more, snack some more, and on and on. You may get full but that craving continues. You keep eating but never satisfied!

Dr. Oz suggestion - Pea Protein Powder Shake. This is day 2 for me and I really do feel my surprise! Yesterday, I did pretty good. I couldn't sleep last night, which is not unusual for me. I was up until 5:00 am this morning so around 1:30 am - 2:00 am I started getting the munchies. Well, I was 14 hours past the time I had my last protein shake. Maybe I should drink another one if I'm up past 12 hours from the last shake. Today, so far so good. I have had that full feeling most of the day and no cravings! Haven't deviated from my meal plan once.

My nutrition reports have indicated that I am low in protein levels. Maybe these shakes are what I need. At times, I have felt out of control!! Especially, in-between meals and late at night.

I'm just mixing the powder with water and it really doesn't taste bad. I have the vanilla flavor. Well, I'll try this for awhile & see how I do......keep you posted!!

If your drinking Pea Protein Powder shakes, let me know how you're doing?

    Its Day 5 and I can tell a difference.

I'm not munching as much and feeling rather full. The only thing is, I increased the amount to 2 scoops instead of 2 tbsp. I may need to adjust it a little because if I don't watch it, it will be 6 -7 pm and I have not eaten anything since breakfast. I'll stick with 2 scoops until Sunday and if needed adjust it then.

    Hi Christine - I found it at the Vitamin Shoppe. Any health food store should have it. It costs under $20.00. They also have it online but I found it in the store cheaper. Maybe because I have a Vitamin Shoppe card. Anyway good luck finding it.

You can find out a lot from tracking your food...

Thursday, October 25, 2012

I had no idea how many calories there are in a KFC meal! SMH! I ran around all day Wednesday, let myself get toooo hungry and tired. Stopped by KFC on the way home, ate ALL of it! I always save my wrappers/boxes/containers from the day until I can log what I ate in food tracker. When I finished adding dinner on, I was shocked!! Dinner alone was over 1000 calories! What?!?!

When I reflect back on what I use to eat, Lord, I must have consumed 3000 calories easily on some days! Big breakfast (bacon, eggs, grits, toast with jelly and oj), Lunch (BK whopper meal w/cheese), and dinner (General Tso with Fried Rice) and Trix for snack. What in the world was I doing to myself. Eating myself into a heart attack!!

SMH! I have got to do some more reading and learn what to eat when I'm out & about so I won't do this anymore. My brain quickly defaulted back to old habits/food choices on my way home. I could have stopped and got a Zaxby's salad and it probably would not have been over 1000 calories!! I've got to STOP, THINK and make better choices.

Now that KFC will probably cost me a pound or two. I did workout but I don't may have been in vain. The scale will tell.

I always enter my food in the tracker regardless if I stay on plan or not so I can see what my food choices cost me. I think my dinner choice cost plenty today!! emoticon

    Thanks for the advice. I need to printout some ideas and keep a copy in my purse, just incase I am not in my car. I started to go to Subway, too. I didn't know they can turn the sandwiches into salads, that's good to know.

    yes it amazing what you can eat out in one meal. I usually eat a side salad with low fat dressing and either a single small hamburger with NO mayo and or subway has great low cal choices. Even taco bell has FRESCO menu which is low fat. Their hard shell taco fresco style is 150 calories. I eat two !You can get a grilled chicken sandwich at back yard burger with no mayo and a side salad for about 350 calories. Subway makes any sandwich into a salad and I love the club salad and its great !! You must do your research ahead of time and I keep a print out of these choices in my car in the glove box !!

    Aint it crazy! I used to eat exactly like you every single day (if not more!). No wonder I got so big! It's mortifying.
Do you have a smartphone? Is there any chance you can track before you eat? Might just be a away of knowing beforehand and playing around with the numbers to see what you can fit in.
If not, it's all a learning process isn't it? Now you know how many calories were in that KFC, you can think of a way to slim it down for next time but still get to eat there if you want to.
Good luck.

What?!?! Down another 1.4 lbs!

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

LHM!! Got on the scale this morning and to my surprise, I had dropped another 1.4 lbs!

I tried something different yesterday after reading some of the blogs and articles. Everyday I run the nutrition reports to see how I have done for the day. Everyday since I have started logging what I eat, I have been low in either calories, protein, carbs, potassium, everything EXCEPT sodium!! I've also had cravings. So yesterday, I increased my calories, lowered sodium, and increased my fitness minutes! I also started following the Chair Exercise fitness routine for the week. Tried different CORE exercise videos. It was harder than what I thought. I was sweating by time I finished. Plus, I walk my dog 2x a day. Made that walk a little longer yesterday, I guess this is what I needed to do, change up the routine and nutrition.

I will continue this new routine for the remainder of the week & see where I end up at on the scale. I have to get a tape measure too.

I'm getting closer to 240! Yeah!

Everyone have a great day!!

    Good for you and that is what you have to do from time to time is to change things up a little to keep your body guessing.

Thinking ahead.

Monday, October 22, 2012

I still have a long way to go but after reading INDYGIRLS blog yesterday, it got me to thinking about maintenance. After I put in all the effort and hard work to loose all this weight, then what? God forbid if I should in any form gain any of this weight back. I hope to be cooking all my meals by then and become Top Chef of my kitchen.

I do have something I want to do once I meet my goal.......I want to go on a tour of the Holy Land and see the pyramids! That will be my treat to myself! When I get back to work, I will start saving for it. My church is going next year but I'm afraid I will not be physically able to handle the walking......too much weight on these knees.

Right now, I feel so good and happy! Praise God! I've let go of some things and feeling great!

Have a great week! emoticon One day I will be able to do this emoticon pose!

What's my problem?

Sunday, October 21, 2012

Well, I'm still fighting to regain the focus that I've seem to have lost. I stayed focused long enough to loose 46 lbs. I moved and during that move I started veering off my meal plan. I've been fighting to get back on course ever since. One week I'm good, the next week I'm eating everything under the sun. I've been up & down the scale for 2 months now.

But I know what the problem is. What the real problem is behind this. I've been trying to have this long distance relationship and I haven't heard from him in almost a month. I'm hurt! I've been on emotional binges ever since his calls stopped coming. I'm really trying to fight through this. It's hard. I thought that maybe if I let some of this out, maybe I can get some relief and get back on track. Next week has to be better.

    Hi - just wanted to respond to the helpful motivational comments on this blog. You are all correct! I guess I just needed to hear it from someone. It's time to move on! I had a great day today. Thinking positive and positioning myself for next week. I set some goals for myself and posted them on my spark page. This will help keep me focused too. I'll keep praying and keep pushing! Thanks for your support!

    You would find it may help to keep busy doing other things. Work on a hobby, finish a project that's been hanging around undone, go out with friends, cook, read, watch a funny movie ..... things that will keep your mind occupied and make you feel happier.

Not only will you be too busy to think about eating for no reason, but you will accomplish something at the same time.

It's a win-win situation.

    You are the most important person in your life. Dump him. Find a new person who is physically/geographically close to your location. Have fun & move ahead with your dreams.

Good Luck!

    Sometimes realizing the problem (or part of it anyways) helps us find the solution a little faster. Emotional eating is tough.. I still battle it but am trying hard to fight it off when the emotional times come. Maybe try chewing gum when times get rough. Keeps your mouth too busy to take in extra calories!

    I know how you fell, sort of... i find it hard to get back on track and usually don't till i have gained all my weight back so don't be like me... maintain for a bit if you have to but keep track of what you eat, it will help to curb the eating.

As far as the relationship goes, i say find another this one is over. Sorry but do you really want to have anything to do with a person that doesn't contact you for a month? You are deserve to be treated SO much better than that.

You can do this.
