I'm excited...

Friday, April 06, 2012

that my first day back went well. I ended up walking for 50 minutes and tried to eat as decent as possible. Instead of using white flour to make roti, I used whole wheat flour and only ate a small piece. Other things I ate were a fiber one bar, chicken chilli, oatmeal with peanut butter, roti and like .25 cup cooked potato, low fat yogurt with some cherrios, and had goldfish for snack. I wanted to limit carbs, but seems like I ate a lot of it. My calories for the day was 1000 since I tried to eat really small portions of everything, I did have 5 small meals so that was good. I also drank 8 glasses of water!

I am going to stay ahead of my my meals so I don't eat whatever. I have to go grocery shopping for more fruits and veggies, protein.

Thank you all for your kind words and great advice on my blog. I really really appreciate them! I've been stressed with my husband's schedule and being alone with kids all the time. Thank God for my Dad, I can sleep for like 5-6 hrs after work everyday.

I'm looking into putting my 6 yr old son back in karate and maybe joining him since it's a mixed class. Just have to figure out what to do with the little person while we go. I hate asking people to babysit, but I will have to if I want to do anything besdies running and walking.

Anyone doing this? walk.walgreens.com/sweepstakes I ame across it the other day, may visit Walgreens to see what it's all about.

My shift tonight is dragging, can't wait to go home and sleep, wake up, and exercise!

Have a great weekend everyone! Have a happy Good Friday and Easter! :-)

    Hi! WTG with working out and a completely clean eating day :)..I'm so glad you're back - you can completely do this. I agree - if you can get someone to babysit, the karate idea sounds excellent. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I LOVE the idea of you and your son taking Karate classes together! I think you should ask your dad to watch the Little Guy while you do this. Go for it, people like to feel needed and necessary - nothing ventured, nothing gained.

The time is now.

Thursday, April 05, 2012

Today, April 5th, is the day I am going to start again. I'm still not feeling it 100% but I cannot afford to keep going, I don't have a plan. I didn't think it would be overwhelming until I looked around my kitchen and saw breads, cereals, jelly beans, and cake to name a few of the things I will be avoiding. I know I can do this, but I don't know how I can give up all the things I don't want to eat when they're in my house for others to eat. I am the only one interested in losing weight at my house, I am the one in charge, and the one that has to hear all the food complaints. So I don't know, I'm going to start simple with protein shakes, salads, egg whites, oatmeal, nuts, fruits, veggies, limiting sugars, breads, rice.

I'm down to a size 10, I don't know what I weigh at the moment, I no longer have a scale. I'm still waiting for my "hot pants" to get here. In the mean time I will work on my strength, training and running.

Wish me luck! & Thanks!

Wish me luck.

    I'd say put all the tempting stuff in a kitchen cabinet and keep the door shut so you don't see it. We can do this! emoticon p.s. I like the idea of starting with lean protein, low fat diet.

    size 10 is awesome by the way but I understand ..you have goals and so many obstacles in your way to get there. Having tempting foods around the house is the worst and especially when you're kids are so young that you have to actually serve/feed it to them so there's no escaping it. But you've done it once and you'll do it again. We all have faith in you and your plan so far with limiting sugar and all that stuff is going to make all your efforts successful!!
Good lUck!
ps. LOVE the new wallpaper! :)

    It sounds like you have a plan to me. You don't have to do everything all at once, one change at a time is still change.

  I wish you the very best of luck. Keep reminding yourself why it is that you want to lose weight when others around you are eating all the things you are trying so hard to avoid.

    Don't be discouraged. Even if others around you aren't interested in losing weight, you need to let them know that this is important to you. Also, there are many delicious alternatives to replace those unhealthy snacks with better choices that everyone will love. I love a healthy whole grain banana bread with protein powder mixed in. I don't eat it too often, but it is sooooo tasty! Keep whole grain bread in the house. It is so delicious.

Also, there are some delicious cereals that are good for you. I got this high protein one with berries in it recently at Fresh and Easy....SO GOOD! Get rid of the junk candy. If anyone in the house wants candy, ask them to eat it outside of the home!!!

I know how it feels to give up a ton of things I used to love when a doctor told me I needed to get my gallbladder out. I didn't want it out so I gave up the junk. Just remember, it is about health! There are so many great tasting foods that are still so good for you. emoticon

    Happy Belated Birthday !

That bright blue (in both dresses) is most definitely your color. You look gorgeous !

Do what feels right to you. If you're not feeling it, you probably won't do it and forcing yourself may just lead to feelings of frustration or failure.

Email me some time - maybe we can meet for a walk or something.

    Happy belated my friend. The wedding looked amazing as well. Sometimes you just need a break. Perhaps that's where you are at right now. On the other hand, maybe a challenge would get you motivated...Think about it. In the end it's your decision, but remember it's all about you. emoticon emoticon Donna

17 days..

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

is amount of time I have to make a difference.

It's been a rough 2 weeks with very little exercise and the next two weeks are not going to be any better with busy weeks, weekends, celebrations, wedding, and extra hours of work. It's time to get back to my exercise. I worked too hard for almost a whole year to let things slide 2 weeks before my big goal date (even if I'm still far from my goal).

So 17 days..858 mins here I come. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You've done it before. You can do it again. If you are having trouble finding time, set an appointment everyday for yourself to get time in. You wouldn't cancel a regular doctor appt would you? Think of it as your healthy appointment. Love ya, Donna

    Sometimes life gets in the way. Just do the best you can in the circumstances you find yourself in. It's all temporary and will change soon, then you can get back into a more familiar and reassuring routine. Don't stress yourself out over trying for perfection. You are a wife and mother and daughter with a lot on your plate right now and you should be nothing but proud of yourself for the job you are doing. I am.

Miss You - xoxo - C
