2014: Doin' It With the Hubs!

Tuesday, May 27, 2014

Back again, and ready to focus on our health. Number one, is dropping some serious weight. We will discuss our goals together to see how we want to make this happen. He belongs to a gym, but since I'm not gym-my, I will be doing other things. Now that we live in Portland, I ride my bike 16 miles round trip to work, though not every day.
I think that one fun project, will be to take a photo of something that we will have "dropped" between the two of us.
Preliminary planning phase, excited to give it a go!

Starting Again

Monday, April 14, 2008

Starting over again, as I stepped away from being truly aware of how much I was eating. Weight has finally made it over 200, so it's time to batten down the hatches. Ok, truth be told, the scale said 202.4 this morning....yipes!

I have done really well over the last year, becoming aware of eating whole and unprocessed foods. I still have a voracious sweet tooth that I do have to really keep in check though.

I would like to continue to eat whole foods, but rather, concentrate on quantity since I seem to have the quality down. My goal for this week is to get back down under 200, and to drink enough water and green tea. Yogi Green Tea is the best...it naturally gives you energy, but sweet Jesus, don't drink before bed! emoticon

I will update again when I am under 200.....

New Goal: Operation 10,000 steps a day

Monday, June 18, 2007

I have been having waaaay too many Starbuck's treats as of late, and I think that I need a goal to focus on to get back on track a bit. I am going to wear my nifty new pedometer that I have tried out a few times. Living in the metro area (NYC), it's not too hard at all to get those steps in, plus working in a toy store helps too. Will make a note of my steps daily.


Uh Oh, Reality Check!

Monday, June 04, 2007

So, time to hit the ol' gym. Actually, I did go last Thursday, for the first time in forever-and-a-half. I was proud that my body responded well, like it's memory kicked in and I wasn't dying on the elliptical or anything. I'm disappointed in myself that I have been having waaaaay too many treats and nowhere near the amount of fresh fruits and veggies that I should have. I guess that I should have faith that my body will take care of itself by dropping the pounds when I choose to treat it in the manner to allow it to do so.

This brings about an interesting point I would like to share. So about a year ago, I had a friend of mine hypnotize me for weight loss. Long story short, it has been helpful in many areas, especially taking the "edge" off of wanting to eat irrationally (like way too much candy or something, out of stress). During one session, she took me through a visualization where I had to package up my excess weight (stay with me here, I know : ), and put it in a machine that shot it out into space. I said to myself, silently, of course, "Hey! That's MY weight, and I'm not going to shoot it anywhere!". Hmmmm, opened me up to the possibility that I have been holding onto this weight for some reason, though haven't the slightest why.

    Thank you for your wonderful comment on my blog. It really is hard not to let ourselves get down on ourselves, isn't it?? :) I made m yself a nice bowl of oatmeal w/ Walnuts, Dates, & Raisins for breakfast, then for mid-morning snack I am going to have 1/2 cup of applesauce. Thanks again, and keep up the great work!

Finally Broke that 190!

Monday, May 21, 2007

Got on the scale today not expecting to even be at 190 since I'm coming off of the weekend (including a few treats and not as many fruits and veggies as needed, but hey), but I was at 189.6! I think that I counter-acted some things by having some of my fiber pills (Fiber Fusion, purchased at Whole Foods) over the weekend before bed. I also have purchased some wheatgrass pills (you take 5 at a time and it equals a serving of veggies....taste somewhat nasty, but swallow them quickly) that I will be implementing today. I know that supplements don't replace the "real thing", food, but they seem to be helping me with overall health. I'm just happy to be in the 180's, and am now ready to get back to the gym! Goal is to make it there tonight, as Hub and I are going down to the shore for Tuesday and Wednesday nights. Hot wings and breakfast at our favorite places are must-stops, so I need to think about those things in advance. Hmmmmm, thinking......
