Game On Diet Done!

Monday, December 07, 2009

I am all done with the Game On diet - where I followed the SparkPeople plan. It was much easier for me to fit everything into my lifestyle with SP than the GO. Granted, I didn't have the weight loss everyone else had, but I think my family would have been very unhappy (myself included) for these last four weeks.

So what did I learn? (because to me, that is the most important part) -
* I can totally live without soda. Even on my days off, I didn't really want it.
* I like drinking water. 100 oz a day was a tad much, but on my "off days" I didn't feel like myself and I think that is because of the water deficiency. I will aim for 100 oz a day, but 64 oz will be a bare minimum. The water bottle is a must.
* I need to log my food - even when it is bad. Logging helps me eat what I am supposed to and keeps me on track. This is something I need to do moving forward.
* Fall is the time of year I gain weight. This is simply a fact. Between football season, the holidays, and the cold weather killing my desire to leave my house, I eat horribly and don't exercise. It was nice having a diet plan to follow on Thanksgiving, so I didn't gouge myself terribly all week. And I have resisted the urge to bake (although since the diet is over, I will probably give in).
* I may have to get comfortable with the size I am now. Looking at the scale and and pictures of me in October 2007 make me want to get back to that size. Granted it is only about 15 pounds, but it is the last 15 pounds - which are usually the hardest. Do I really want to push myself to get there? And once I get there, can I maintain it? Or will the pounds slowly slide back on and then I will want them off again? I certainly let them back on over these last two years. I don't think I can handle the up-and-down yo-yo of that. I put those pounds on while still eating low-fat cheese, skim milk, and the other substitutions that helped me lose the pounds when my journey started. I won't be "Fat Kim' again, but I may never Oct. 2007 Kim again either.

And I may have to live with that...

Good days and bad

Thursday, November 12, 2009

So this diet started out bad. I was starving, so day 2 I lost meal points and took my meal off. Not a great way to get things going, right? Day 3 was better. Having some real meat (other than cheese) helped some. I am getting real tired of nuts and peanut butter (and I love them). Day 4 has gone well, I will get my daily points, but something is missing. I think I need to be able to eat what I want within a calorie range... but I will keep trying this for now. Oh, I really want chocolate right now.

    I don't eat avocados. PB and nuts are easiest because they are fast and easy to grab. 100 calories always goes towards the creamer of the coffee I love so much.

    The hundred extra calories aren't enough? What about olive oil and avocados?

Game On

Monday, November 09, 2009

Started Game On! Diet today. Not sure how I feel about it yet (I can't think when I am hungry) but I am hoping this re-engergizes me. When I weighed myself this morning, it was higher than I wanted. It has been a long 2 years since I was in the best shape of my life.

    I didn't plan too well for today. Grocery store tomorrow should make things better.

Getting back into the groove...

Thursday, September 03, 2009

I started logging again this week. I have about 15-20 pounds I really want to lose and I should do it! So far so good. A little over on my calories on Monday, but it could have been worse if I wasn't logging it all in. Two good days and if not for bunco, today would be good too. I am going to try and be good at bunco, but that is a hard task to tackle.

An okay week

Friday, June 26, 2009

Food wise, not so great - Taco Bell for dinner last night (need I say more).

However, exercise-wise, it was a good week. Walking on Monday (to ease back in), elliptical on Tuesday, spin on Thursday, and shadow boxing today. 180 minutes of exercise, 1700 calories burned. Hopefully it means that the crap I ate won't stick.

Next week - glutton-fest. A week with the Wassmuths. Steaks, fajitas, lasagna are on the dinner menu. I will aim to exercise, but I haven't done it the last 3 years (like I said I would) so I am doubting it will get done this year.

July will be a stellar month! I can feel it!
