Day 1 of Low Carb - Success!

Thursday, September 27, 2012

Day 1 of low carbing went really well. I resisted Cheez-itz and Skittles at work last night, which I am proud of myself for. I had a salad with a small piece of chicken mixed in for dinner last night. I didn't go to bed hungry, but just before being hungry. I actually made it through one day of a plan! I have been restarting EVERY DAY because I always mess up on day 1. The longest I have stuck to anything 90% of the time is 2 weeks. And that's being generous.

My only somewhat regret is eating 3 of those pre-made sausage patties like the ones McDonald's has before my dinner. I was hungry, or I felt like I was. But those patties are on plan, just had more fat than I wanted to consume.

I am going to try and get a walk in today if the weather cooperates. Day 2, here I come!

    I am exactly the same. I keep changing plans and can't seem to "stick to" anything for more than a few days. At least I keep trying! Wishing you success this time around!

Low-Carbing it.

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

I have decided I can't take anymore. I need to do something different. I am going to try low-carb again. Not severely low, but under 30 grams per day. I am tired of failing every day. I feel super motivated right now, and I am going to run with it.

So far I have had 3 strips of low-sodium bacon, a salad with 2 tbsp. lite vidalia onion dressing, and I am about to eat a piece of round steak and some veggies.

Wish me luck. I'm sorry you have to read about the same things almost every blog (ex. me starting over or starting a new plan).

    I wish I could do low carb...I love my cereal, sandwich's and pasta...I just try to make sure they are high in fiber to fill me up! Good Luck.

    When you think about it, we all are starting over every day. Whether we stuck to the plan or not, when you wake up for the new day, you have to start all over again.

While seeing the long-term progress is fine, being focused on the choices being made right now helps me realize what works for me and what doesn't. Then it's just a matter of repeating what worked the next day. Having that kind of focus also helps me realize just how much better I feel and how much easier it is with day-to-day living.

    clearly we don't mind reading about it...that's what we are here for don't cha know? LOL You'll find what works for you and then you'll be more apt to WANT to stick with it. Consistency, that seems to be the key.

and don't worry, we've got your back

Good luck!

    our bodies need carbs, so if you are feeling run down, just try different sources like fruits, veggies, root veggies, nuts. Not processed carbs. Good luck and don't beat yourself up. You are here and you keep trying

Update on the Wallet Theft.

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

Well, I guess I can't really say theft. But still. A woman called me from the ID tag inside the wallet and she said there was no money in it but she would return it to me tomorrow. The kicker? She picked it up RIGHT after it flew off my car. She was at the gas station at the same time as I was! I remember her! But there was somehow no money in it from some other person, ha! Yeah right! Oh well. I am glad she is being a half-good Samaritan. I am meeting her at the gas station tomorrow to get it back. Hope she shows up.

    Funny how that money disappeared isn't it! With ID theft I think I would still change things...but I don't trust people much anymore.

The Plan.

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

This is the plan for me and my mom. We are having a competition to see who reaches their goal weight first. We each have 30 lb. to lose to reach goal weight. My goal weight is 125.

The first weigh-in is for October 31st, which I mentioned last blog. The second weigh-in for the final goal date is December 25th. I want a Christmas gift to myself: my new body.

In other news, I drove off from the gas station with my wallet on top of my car and someone snatched it from the middle of the road in the time it took me to turn around and drive back three blocks on a busy intersection. I searched both sides of the road, so someone stopped at the light and opened their door and grabbed it within 5 minutes of it landing down. I essentially saw it fly off, so I know it was only five minutes OR LESS. Nice, people. Jeez! Now I have to buy another new license, plus get a new school ID which I have to pay for, too! This is not mentioning the twenty dollars and change and insurance cards and other unmentionables that were in there.

Lame. And this day started off amazingly. I ate a healthy breakfast of a ViSalus shake and walked on the treadmill at 3.3 mph for 20 minutes. I felt good. I am at school now, about to go to class, so please pray for my sanity today!

    Hopefully it will be returned to you. This happened to me--my wallet was turned in to my high school because it had my HS ID card. I hope you see it soon for all your ID and insurance cards!

Fall Challenge is On!

Tuesday, September 18, 2012

My Mom came over today and we had a nice long visit. We are going to do a challenge. Halloween is 6 weeks and 1 day away. Here are the goals:

- Weigh 137 lb. by October 31st
- Weigh in daily
- Exercise 4 times per week
- Eat healthy

I am getting a reward for reaching my goal: highlights!

I weigh 155 lb. today. That'll mean I will have to lose 18 lb. in 6 weeks and 1 day. I can do it!
