Maintenance - 1 week and counting. :)

Monday, August 04, 2008

SO! :D

I'VE DONE IT! hahaha for one week. WOOHOO! :D

I weighed this morning and it was actually slightly lower than last Monday's 167.2 weigh-in, still within my maintenance range and going strong. :)

I have to admit I've been a bundle of nerves this week -- this maintenance thing is SCARY for me. I was able to kind of examine my thoughts and admit it to my husband yesterday that I was having a hard time relaxing and feeling fidgety and whatnot... I think it really was because I was afraid of gaining weight. It's so hard to trust in the system, even though I was able to trust in it while losing. It worked the way it was supposed to then, so why shouldn't it work the way it's intended to now?

I was being silly. I KNOW that I'm still excercising and working hard in that area. I'm still eating mostly healthy and still trying to keep tabs on that even with my daily mini splurges that I nearly always have. I'm still working to eat fruits and vegetables. I'm still drinking my water. I'm maintaining all my healthy habits. AND I'm still weighing myself at least once a week.

So nothing is going to SHOCK me. I'm not going to wake up one day and be 20lbs heavier. I'm MANAGING my weight -- even in maintenance. It's not that I'm "DONE" doing anything just because I'm done LOSING weight.

I have to get used to these ideas and keep reassuring myself until I get used to this. I think the longer I'm able to continue maintaining is going to build my confidence. SO! ONE WEEK DOWN!

I've reduced my average calorie burn estimate per week to 2000 calories -- I'm not really swimming much anymore and although I would like to change that, I need to make sure my estimate is realistic. So my calorie ranges have changed VERY SLIGHTLY from what I posted last week and they're updated on my page.

I was very proud of myself for resisting temptation at a bookstore Starbucks this weekend. My DH wanted to go get a cupcake. So we went, bought a book, bought an Oxygen mag for me to check out, and headed to the Starbucks. I decided not to get anything. The treats looked good -- but they looked so HUGE!!!! I knew that getting one meant I'd eat all of it and I really just didn't want to. So I took a bite of sample cookie on the counter, and a couple bites of his cupcake and felt good. :D Then we got one of their new Vivanno thingies. SO GOOD, folks!!! And not too shabby in the nutrition department either. It's in my tracker for Saturday if you're curious -- I entered .5 serving for me since we shared it. Description for the kind we got (Banana Chocolate Blend) - semi-sweet chocolate, banana, whey protein and milk. 21g of protein for one serving. Anyway -- it was good. And a smart choice I think.

I also did part of the Project Mayhem! challenge. I didn't make it to a 1 rep circuit -- I had to quit halfway through the 15 rep circuit. Here's the thing about Project Mayhem.... the excercises are almost always the same. And I cannot do that many pushups and dips. I have problems with my wrists. And I get really sick of the other excercises which are less challenging for me. I could do modifications... but I'm thinking instead I'm going to forgo any challenges that don't look exciting or interesting, or just do them every once in a while. I mean pushups, dips, lunges, squats, scissor kicks... I can only take so much. I LIKE VARIETY!!! And interesting moves! Simple is still challenging, especially the way the challenges are designed... but I just don't think it's a good fit for me.

So I mentioned getting that Oxygen mag -- I think I'm gonna become a subscriber one of these days. :) Once one of my current subscriptions runs out or for Christmas or something. Whatever comes first. I HATE ALL THE ADS. But the content seems good enough to make up for it. Definitely a little more hardcore than the stuff I'm getting now, I think. So that's exciting.

I got a run in yesterday, too. Not as long as I wanted -- only about 2 miles... but I headed out later than usual and my DH got a bad feeling and came and got me. I don't mind trusting his bad feelings. I'd rather never find out what that bad feeling might have been about and be safe than chance it and be sorry. But I got 2 miles so I'm happy. :) And I was making good time, too.

THIS MORNING'S WORKOUT -- SO FUN. If you've been with my blog a LONG TIME, you might remember me talking about doing a Masala Bhangra workout back in the day. :D Well I FINALLY got Volume 2 and did it this morning. :D I can't tell you how much I love doing this Indian dance stuff. I think it's one of those workouts that could be less challenging if you don't get into it, but if you really throw your whole body into the moves it's definitely heart-rate-raising. :D You're supposed to bump your shoulders up and down almost all the time, which helps. Lots of kind of jumping around and stuff, too. I really like the instructor as well. I RECOMMEND IT. :D

I also have another Ellie Krieger recipe recommendation -- I made the Aromatic Noodles with Lime-Peanut Sauce. SO GOOD. I substituted more sugar snap peas since we had no snow peas available... and we were out of lime juice so that was out. Also it calls for .5 cup of natural PB, but we only had about .25 left -- so I used .25 of cashew butter as well. :D Anyway -- it turned out amazing and I am SO looking forward to eating leftovers at lunch. For those who don't have the book -- it's basically whole wheat spaghetti with steamed broccoli and Snap peas/Snow peas, and then you make this sauce using PB, soy sauce, Rice wine vinegar, lime juice, grated ginger, scallion, rep pepper flakes, brown sugar, and some water. Serve with some crushed toasted peanuts on top.

Well. I think I covered everything. I know it's a long blog but that's what I get for not blogging since Thursday. ;)

    Awesome awesome blog!! I think you might remember me freaking out being at goal and maintaining? So I know exactly what you're talking about. I think next year will be totally different for us...a year of maintaining under our belts and we won't be nervous about all the fuel we're consuming or the scale going up and down a few pounds.

That recipe sounds wonderful. You've really tried out a ton more from that cookbook than I have. I'm exciting about having a hubby soon to cook for though! Maybe then I'll get more recipe time in the kitchen. ;o)

Hope your week is off to a great start!

it is like a weight (no pun intended) has been lifted, not looking for a loss on the scale.

i feel like the strength training challenge really helped me get off to a good start on my new body fat % goal! good challenge! thanks for that one!

I just wanted to say you have a great attitude about maintenance. Alot of people slowly go back to the way they used to eat. That is why 90+% regain. You got it right. Always be aware of what you are doing and keep up the exercise and you will do great. Looking good.

    Way to go, Week ONE, Dana!!!! I'm proud of you.

I'm sure just as it got easier to change your calories, etc so that you could lose weight initially, it'll get easier for you in maintenance. And if you see any areas of problems come up, you've done all this before, so you know what you would need to change to prevent any major issues.

Just remember, you are a *hero* to many of us on here. We have total faith in your abilities :)

  That recipe sounds a lot like the peanut lime chicken I made up. I have a weakness for peanut sauce and it's actually pretty healthy.

I gotta admit, even the *idea* of maintaining freaks me out and it's a long way away for me. But it still has to be cool to be an "after." You can do it, though! I want to catch up to you so you have to. emoticon Though I'll still be dumpy at 165. Darn you and your awesome height. (Not that I won't be thrilled to pieces to get there, anyway!)

P.S. -- About Sodium and Running

Thursday, July 31, 2008

So, BRUIN2 made an intersting comment on my last blog and I wanted to share what I read about it. She said that I need salt cause I'm a distance runner now!

HAHA. dunno about the "distance runner" part -- but I did read up and in a couple of articles on Runner's World I read that "most runners consume between 3000-5000" mg of sodium each day. (Although they really didn't mention if this was GOOD or not hahahaha) Another article answered the question of how much by stating that a runner should be fine with up to 3000mg of sodium per day.

Anyone have any other info on this? I think I'm gonna change my focus from between 1300-2300 and just worry about it if I'm consistently over 3000 (like this past week). If most days I'm between 2300-2500, and only occasionally higher, I think I'm gonna accept that as par for the course. :)

    Not a runner so I could not help you on that. I heard you need salts for electrolytes..is that the same thing.

Report Inappropriate Comment
LANC92 8/1/2008 9:53AM

    Here's the scoop: some runners actually have to take salt tablets while running to avoid cramping. So, if you're an extra salty runner, i.e. your running clothes look white-ish after a long run, you can safely take in more salt and probably should. Otherwise, just stick with around 2-3000 and you'll be just fine!

    I think if you eat too much salt and you're exercise you excrete it in sweat. I recall having salt all over my body years ago when I exercised. I don't use as much salt now and I don't have as much salt in my sweat. I think the body does a good job regulating it. I don't watch my sodium intake. emoticon

    BWAHAHAHHAA. One of my comments lead to research - I LOVE THAT!!

And I am soooo like Krissy. The amount of salt after a long run (and by that I mean anything more than 45 mins) is crazy. So keep doing what you're doing!

    I never worry much about sodium... I mean, I try to watch it a bit, but obviously I'm not worried if I'm sucking down some Gatorade every time I run lately - it's got it in it. So I do think that runners can handle a bit more than your average bear...

Feeling fantastic! :)

Thursday, July 31, 2008

(That picture is the cute shirt I wore yesterday -- it doesn't do justice to the rich plum color but isn't it pretty?)

OK, maybe a liiiiittle tired since I woke up BEFORE 7AM this morning. YES. :D

I got up, made DH's lunch, and got myself ready to go RUN!!! WOOHOO!!

The fact that I did this at ALL this morning was enough to make me feel very proud and satisfied with myself. I've been feeling like a bit of a slacker for some reason lately -- I think it's cause I missed my long run last week and the other runs were so THUMBS DOWN but anyway...

Well not only did I get up and run early in the AM, but I did 5.15miles again. :D WOOHOO!!!!!!!!! And I knocked a couple minutes off of last time! :D YAY! And I even think I went the harder way (same loop, different direction for variety). :D

My muscles are feeling nice and sore, and I'm feeling that awesome sense of accomplishment. It's worth being a little tired.

Well anyway, I was looking at my nutrition tracker just a moment ago and I realized my sodium was over 3000 each day for the entire week. WHAT?!?!?! I know there are some things (like beef jerky) that are high in sodium, but I wasn't sure what else was going on. So I looked at my summaries for each day to identify the unknown culprits. Sadly -- The PORTOBELLO ROLLUPS are REALLY high in sodium, and the other day I had them for lunch AND dinner. So that's culprit number one.

Culprit #2 - COTTAGE CHEESE. OH MAN. This one surprised me but I guess I should have known -- it was too much of a healthy dream come true! 390mg per serving. UGH.

Culprit #3 - Pretzel Sticks. DUH. For some reason I thought I remembered looking at them and seeing some number in the 100-200 range... but no, 400 per serving (and actually since I'm using a different brand now and didn't change since the cal's are the same, the new brand I just found out is 580mg per serving. BLAST!)

Culprit #4 - Frozen Veggies - OK I knew that.

Culprit #5 - Sausages. Ok I knew that, too.

But I forgot that I didn't change my nutrition tracker last night -- I WAS going to have sausages and veggies last night, but instead it's on for tonight so that's two days in a row. Although last night I had some wraps with sandwich ham in them (high sodium known offender) and a side of .... guess what? PRETZEL STICKS. HAHAHAHAA.

So what will I do? Well -- now that I'm aware of them I'm going to try to enjoy them separately and not all on the same day. I don't think it's feasible to just cut certain items out of my diet -- like cottage cheese. It has so many GOOD things about it that outweigh the bad. And for an occasional sub for fresh veggies, I don't mind the extra sodium of the microwave veggies. Or the sodium from the sausages. But I definitely don't want to have such high sodium days all week long forever and ever. ;) hahaha.

As far as the pretzel sticks go -- I don't often eat them alone - I usually dip in PB or Laughing Cow cheese or something, and I'm not the biggest fan of the salt anyway. I'm going to look for lightly salted or unsalted pretzel options in the future. Also the bigger pretzel rods have less salt because there's less surface area -- so that's an option to consider as well.

Edited to Add: Now that I fixed yesterday, it's over 4000mg!!!

    Glad you're feeling great! You look great, too. What a cute top! I'm scared to see how much my sodium intake is, so I try not to look. I'm trying to stay away from processed foods, because I know that they're big culprits but sometimes convenience wins out over healthfulness.

Thanks for the fat suggestions in my blog. I'll give them all a try. I've never even tried avocado before. Isn't that pathetic? I'm also glad to hear about another deficit tracking success story. Something about it appeals to my scientific side. I hope you have a great weekend!

  My husband was cooking over the weekend and insisted on adding salt to whatever it was that he was making. It nearly made me gag. I haven't actually added salt to *anything* since May. (And I had cut back before that.) However, sodium has always been my downfall. I don't have high blood pressure so I figure as long as it's under 3500mg a day, I'm fine. That's not easy to do most of the time. EVERYTHING has massive quantities of sodium, especially if it's low fat. I've actually stopped buying a lot of nonfat stuff because of the crazy amounts of sodium in it.

Also, you are adorable. I cannot wait to wear a body-hugging shirt that's hugging for all the right reasons.

    Cute cute top! Luvs it! About the sodium...I thought I'd heard that keeping it below 2000 mg a day is good....1500 is better. So your 3,000 in a week? I would think you're doing pretty good. Unless you dropped a zero accident?

I didn't let the curveball throw me.

Tuesday, July 29, 2008


Today did not really go as planned... my morning was totally thrown to pieces by me waking up about an hour and a half later than I thought I would... WHOOPS. :P

My DH usually gets up at 7AM on M-W, but this morning I woke up at about 8:30 and he was getting done with showering. I totally did not even hear his alarm or him getting going, even though it was obviously later than 7AM when that happened. I guess I really needed that sleep!

By the time we get going I've agreed to do a couple of errand type thingies for my DH and it's already 10 past 9 and HOT AND HUMID as all get out. :P BOO!

I had planned to run outside for my medium length run today and hadn't run since last Thursday so I REALLY NEEDED IT.

BUT! Rather than throw in the towel, I revamped my plan.

Instead of my medium run, I opted for speedwork. With my speed sessions I can hit the indoor track since the distance is not too long so turning all those loops is not unbearable. :D YAY!!!!!!!

So I did 2 miles PLUS a warmup/cooldown. My 2 miles only took 19:25. :D MY BEST PACE THUS FAR. WOOHOO!!! I didn't feel like I was killing myself either... I felt STRONG, capable and flat out powerful. WOOHOO!

Just gotta keep the revamped plan for the REST of the week in check and I'll be totally on track with my running. :D YAY!

Ate within my new higher range Monday. :) Made an AMAZING dinner last night. Of course, one of Ellie Krieger's recipes. Portobello Lasagna Rollups. SO GOOD. I actually had to revamp the portion division a bit since I only had 8 noodles to work with instead of 12, but I recalculated the nutrition facts using my ingredients in the Nutrition Calculator and my 2 rolls versus her 2 rolls is 530/500, same amount of fat. COOL! :D I had leftovers for lunch....... and that will be dinner as well. :D

I'm actually still full from lunch and usually I'd be getting hungry again by now. I estimated my calorie burn for the rest of the week and it will be around 2300, and if I'm short, I'll do something at home with the Netflix Player Box.

Have I blogged about this amazing creation yet?

It's a little box that will play things from Netflix Instant Viewing on your TV. :D I went to the computer, added a Jillian Michael's Cardio Kickboxing Video to the Instant Queue, went to the living room and DID IT. It was awesome. I have some other stuff added to the Queue already that I can try. :D YAY. I do love me some technology.

    That Netflix box sounds cool! Glad to hear that you didn't "throw in the towel" but instead di the "revap"!! That is awesome!

    Glad you liked my low-res belly pic - happy to oblige! :)

You sound so excited and full of life lately... Love your blogs; they make me smile! :)

The Hungry, Hungry Preggo is very curious about that recipe... Sounds DELICIOUS, girl!

And as for the Netflix box - that's cool, too! We have a DVR here, and me being from the hick-town sticks - well, it's like the best thing since sliced bread to me... Rewinding TV? Say it ain't so! LOL!

Have a wonderful night, girl. :)
