Good morning!

Wednesday, October 05, 2011

Hi, friends. I'm back! I was on a blogging hiatus, as well as a diet and exercise hiatus. Such is life. I gained back the weight I lost, plus a few. I changed my goals today, and yesterday went off without a hitch! So here's to starting over!


I'm on a Bender

Wednesday, September 07, 2011

I am on a reverse-diet bender. Namely, I am munching down everything in sight. The holiday weekend didn't go well, and it continued into this week. I have been eating whatever, not exercising, and feeling horrible about myself.

In other news, I might be pregnant, so I am pretty sure the anxiety from that is making me feel like eating. That, or I am PMS-ing. I'm late...period, where are you?! I have only been married a three weeks, and I don't want to be that girl who gets pregnant a week from the wedding night. I don't want any "shotgun" references.


Drinking = Diet Disaster

Saturday, September 03, 2011

Well, the holiday weekend has come. My hub got off work early and we had a healthy dinner, and then went out for drinks with his dad- 3 drinks later, we go to the store and buy a bunch more stuff and I drink 1.5 more drinks. Those were cranberry lemonade light mikes hards, but still. Over 2,000 calories due to the drinks plus the food that followed. emoticon

    Yup, those liquid calories really add up fast. And the worst thing is, they make you hungry to eat more food. (especially carbs) I'll be fighting that battle tonight, at a neighborhood party. Hope the rest of your holiday weekend goes better. Keep on Sparkin!!!

The Dreaded Scale

Friday, September 02, 2011

I awoke with a start this morning, writhing in agony over my angry stomach. It cried, "Why would you stuff me to maximum capacity and then go to sleep?" I was feeling downright sick this morning, probably due to the fact that I ate almost 40 grams of fat and a bit under 700 calories immediately before bed last night! I deprived myself of fat inadvertantly yesterday, which led to me feeling deprived. I describe it as, "I feel like eating!" Not hungry exactly but something is off. After a few hours of discomfort, I am now feeling great!

Why? Well, I just faced the dreaded emoticon The verdict: since my weigh-in yesterday, I am down 1.5 lb.

How can that be?! Well, I have been working out consistently and I know I drank plently of water yesterday, so it isn't likely to be water weight (I hope). I am keeping my fingers crossed that I won't be up 2 lb. tomorrow. I know, I know, water weight and what not. I still like seeing the number go DOWN. emoticon

I am excited to announce my weight today: 130.5 lb. I am down 3.5 lb. after my first week! I hope I can maintain this loss and continue my progress. I really need to cut down on the calories I am munching down at night; I have only stayed in my calorie range 2 of the 7 days. I only went over ridiculous one day (over 3.700- dang Mickey D's) which is completely horrible and I gained 1.5 lb. from, and the rest were not quite as bad (2,223 was the highest, the others range from 16-1900). The highlight is I still lost 3.5 lb. and [I have exercised every day].

Yay, me! I hope everyone's September has started off well! emoticon

  I was also weighing myself several times a week at first and I noticed my weight went up and down by a pound or 2 each time. Then I read here on SP that it's best to weigh just once a week to get a truer reading. I now follow that advice and no longer go nuts or feel bad because of the fluctuating scale. I see a consistent drop (other than a 2 wk plateau) each week now. It's hard to keep away from that scale, I know, cuz we want that instant gratification. That's why the fast food places are so popular. emoticon

But you can focus on your clothes fitting looser and the added energy you have now. Make the choice each day to be consistent. Do your best and you will be successful.

Recommitted- the Wrap Up

Thursday, September 01, 2011

Day 1 of the September challenge:

morning weight: 132 lb.
cals: 2,223 (oops, I planned on being done after a package of brussel sprouts, but I went to bed and got back up and ate 1.5 servings of leftover Shepard's pie)
water: 8 +
exercise: 20 min/1.4 miles + 30 min/ 1.56 mi = 50 min/ 2.96 mi
motivation: to lose 17 lb. by October 27th
delight: working out 6 days in a row for the first time in...well, practically ever!

[EDIT] Last night, I planned on going to sleep after eating around 1,580 calories or so. I'd went slightly over due to eating a package of brussel sprouts in low-fat butter sauce, but I ate 36 grams of fiber at that point, and very low fat for the day (33 grams). I think that was my downfall. I must need a bit more fat in my diet, because when I consume less than 20-25% of my calories from fat, I feel ravenous! I was going to just add this mini-binge on to today and eat less, but it left me with half a day's calories, and I just don't hate myself that much!

THE FIX: I will be sure to incorporate healthy fats into my diet regularly, instead of trying to limit them (to save calories) and then bingeing on them later.
