My Husband Ate

Wednesday, August 22, 2012

I tried a SparkPeople recipe a couple of week ago and tried it on my husband. He wanted nothing to do with my "diet food" as he calls it. I don't give up easily. All I prepare anymore is healthy food, so today he could try my recipe or not. It was his choice. He joined me for lunch and LOVED it, as did I! We gave it a rating of "Incredible" on SparkRecipes. I made SparkRecipe "Island Chicken with Pineapple Salsa", brown rice and peas. Delicious! I might just Spark him after all. Happy cooking everyone.

    Let him go hungry enough and he will eat anything. Glad it was a good recipe, it sounds delishous.

    So glad he tried it and enjoyed it. Sometimes you just have to let them make the decision for themselves. LOL!!!

    Wonderful. Yes, by example, and the great tasting food. You may make a convert out of him.

    I suspect that he thought that "diet" food would be boring, bland, and leave him hungry!

    Hey, sometimes you just have to do what you have to do and let hubby come along for the ride or fend for himself. Glad it worked well for both of you.

I Finished My 1st 5K Race!

Saturday, August 04, 2012

This morning, I walked my 1st 5K in 52:17! I'm so proud of myself! After logging my time in, I just had to go to my SparkPage to see my trophy! My husband gave me a congratulations hug. This is such a big deal for me. Until May 5, 2012 when I joined SP, I laid in bed all day and watched Netflix, maybe 10 movies a day, everyday. I only thought I was happy. I didn't know what happiness was. Today, it's all about accomplishing something I never thought I could. Thanks SparkPeople! emoticon

    Congratulations. I remember when I did my first 5K. It was a great feeling. I now walk 4 miles a day for the last week. It is something totally different. Congrats. I was like you watching TV all day. So don't feel alone in this. lol emoticon emoticon

    Congratulations on finishing the race! Great job! I did my 10K by walking.
My 58 yr. old knees are not up to jogging these days. But I have walked a lot and it has paid off for me. Good luck!

It's My Birthday

Friday, July 27, 2012

Today's my birthday. Happy 50th Birthday to me! I want to thank God for another day and pray for His will this coming year. I feel beautiful inside and out. I planned my workouts this week around today so that today could be a day of rest. We planned on going to a steakhouse today, but my DH didn't want to spend the excess money, so today I have a personal chef! I'm going to have filet mignon, baked potato, and mushroom caps. I made a special carrot cake with real carrots and raisins and applesauce in place of the oil. I plan on logging in my calories and averaging them out between yesterday, today and tomorrow. I feel like God is in control this birthday. Last year was a blur. "Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The Spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak." Mark 14:38 I hope everyone has a blessed day!

    Happy, blessed birthday to you. emoticonYour plans for your birthday sound emoticonI don't blame your DH for not wanting to waste money on going out for a steak. The last time my DH, DD & myself went to a steak house, it cost us more then $60.00......and none of us are that big of eaters. I am happy emoticonto hear that you are more in tune to God then you were last year, that is a blessing. emoticon
Your birthday is in July, mine is in October.....I will also be 50 years old. emoticon In a way, I don't feel like I am that old, but in other ways I feel like I am way older then that......you know what I mean? emoticon Ok, I will quit blabbing and let you go have a blessed and fun birthday.

My Husband Noticed Me

Monday, July 02, 2012

This morning, my dear husband saw me in my birthday suit and commented , "You look good, Cathy. You look skinny."!. This is in contrast to his comment that finally got me to take a look at myself. He told me, "You look good in clothes." I knew what he meant. And he was right. I've only lost 31 lbs of my goal 74 lbs, but he doesn't cringe when he sees me naked. This makes me so happy, to have a husband that notices what I'm doing for myself. I can't thank him enough. I can't thank ME enough. I'm feeling confident and beautiful, way before he ever said anything. He supports me in my fitness journey too, by walking with me, even up to my 2.5 miles. This morning we took our chihuahua puppies, and my boy Chico even kept up with me on the track. So my whole household is taking notice and getting healthy along with me. How terrific that I'm spreading the Spark!

    Yep, when the Birthday suit fits good, and DH notices, that's a huge milestone. Keep up the good work. Sorry it took me so long to get to your blog. I enjoy reading them.

I Reached a Weight Loss Goal

Saturday, June 30, 2012

June 30, I reached a weight loss goal almost 1 month early. My goal was to weigh 168 lbs by my 50th birthday, July 27 and this morning I weighed in at 167.8 lbs! My new weight loss goal for Jul 27 is 160 lbs. I've been losing an average of 2.5 lbs per week, so I feel this goal is attainable and realistic.
