Day 15/51 - Food and Fitness Blog.

Thursday, July 05, 2012

I had another good day of food, and even got to drink a small glass of chardonnay! I needed it after the night I had at work.

I am going to try and start doing the 30 Day Shred again, as I used to be able to do Level 1 really well, I can barely get through it now! I am going to try and actually finish it so I can say I did it, and that I actually used the exercise video I purchased.

Not too shabby! This is going to be a quick one, I am not recounting all the foods I ate because I am simply too tired. I am going to try and work out, but we'll see. Also...


I am down to 149 lb. today! I have finally gotten out of the 150's! YAY! This is also Day 4 of sticking to my plan, so yay, me! emoticon emoticon

Hope everyone had a wonderful Fourth of July! Happy birthday, America!

    YAHOOOOOOOOOO! You will never see 150 again, okay? OKAY!!! :)

If my knee wasn't acting up again, I would start the 30 day shred with you. :( BUT, I'm going to be doing the Jillian Michael's Yoga Meltdown 2x per week so I'll be with you in spirit with Jillian yelling! ;)

Day 14/51 - Food and Fitness Blog

Wednesday, July 04, 2012

I did really well last night up until I ate an extra serving of Triscuits. I still managed to stay under my top calorie range, and I did exercise and walk over 1.400 steps yesterday! That's 7 miles! I am happy with that.

emoticonCalories: 1,474 Carbohydrates: 190 g Fat: 34 g Protein: 95 g emoticon

Exercise: 30 minutes on the treadmill, 1.5 miles

I had my two ViSalus shakes for breakfast and lunch, and they really filled me up yesterday! I was full until before I went to bed, when I ate the Triscuits to take some medicine (and ended up over-indulging). I even splurged on a small glass of chardonnay, which is a dry wine and has a lot less sugar than the sweet wines I normally drink, and lower in carbs. I am pleased with my progress. I am down to 150.0 lb. this morning, lost 1.5 lb. since yesterday. I know some of it is water weight, but I am finally breaking through my plateau!

    I used to eat a lot of those Boca and Morningstar Farms "meats," but I had a bad soy dog once that was rotten and ever since I can't eat them!

    Your doing great with your healthy eating.

Healthy Food Suggestions for Dinner that I eat:
Eating different foods helps maintain a healthy, well-balanced and interesting diet.

Tumaro's Low Carb Wraps (80 cal) vs Bread : I can stick more lettuce n veggies into them
Morning Star Frams Veggie Hot Dogs = 50 cal each
Morning Star Garden Veggie Patties = 110 cal each
Ball Park Smoked White Turkey Franks = 45 cal each

Day 10-12/51 - Food and Fitness Blog.

Monday, July 02, 2012

Well, Friday went well as far as the food was concerned. I didn't eat too much at all, around 1,400 calories. I did go out for some drinks, which are not accounted for in that number, but it didn't affect my weight. The weekend could have been better. I basically ate whatever, not trying to be unhealthy but not worrying about what I ate. I think I did not too bad, because I maintained my weight. I am still stuck at 152.5 lb. Obviously, the going off plan all the time is why I am struggling and not losing weight.

Today I walked a mile for 20 minutes, and I also have stuck to my healthy eating plan. I am so tired of failing all the time; I am publicly committing myself to stick with this for at least this week to see if I lose weight, and if I do, I am hoping it will fuel my desire to keep on trucking.

    the hardest part of this lifestyle is the commitment and motivation. Both of which come through our inner selves and both of which are key to succeeding.

Keep on going! Don't give up...I've heard this on every diet forum out there. The key is to keep pushing through our mental blocks until our bodies catch up.

We can do this :o) and we will.

    keep on truckin and DON"T stop at just a week! Sometimes when you start a new routine you will be tearing muscles (this is okay) the muscles will retain water weight in order to repair the tears. so, after your week of working out, you might actually weigh more because of this water retention. I would hate for you to give up too soon!

Day 9/51 - Food and Fitness Blog.

Friday, June 29, 2012

I went over my calories yesterday by about 250.

emoticonCalories: 1807 Fat: 59 g Carbohydrates: 191 g Protein: 74 g emoticon

The strange thing is, even though I have been staying at my calorie ranges most days and not going too crazy, I am still not losing weight. Bummer.

EDIT: I have lose 2 lb. since starting this challenge. I am happy with that, and I know now that exercise is my missing component. I am exercising, in fact, for the first time ever in my Spark history, I just crossed 500 monthly fitness minutes! I am super happy about it. I got a pedometer today and so far today I am at 8,303 steps. It is only a quarter til eleven in the morning, and my goal is 10,000 steps or more per day! I feel like I can really do it! I walked for an hour on the treadmill and walked 3.1 miles. I also joined a new community, the 50 Jumping Jacks a Day Challenge. I think my new enthusiasm for exercise is the key to success. It is exercise and diet that work together to promote weight loss.

My theory is that the twenty minutes of walking I did a couple times per week just isn't cutting it anymore. I am 25 now, and my years of fast metabolism are ticking away. If I can't get into shape when I am this young, then what hope do I have? It only gets harder. Time is cruel in that way. I see my mom struggling, and I don't want to be that in 25 more years. I don't want to struggle, lose the same 10 lb. and gain it back over and over again for my whole life.
