Getting Serious & Keeping It Real

Tuesday, December 22, 2009

emoticon was today. I didn't do horrible. I managed not to have any of the gift basket a physician brought to our office this morning.

Now keep in mind, I did not do any shopping before I decided today would be day one. This is about making small modifications from the norm.

I had a fairly healthy breakfast burrito-had bacon, green peppers, onions, eggs, tomatoes and cheese sauce-not heavy sauce more of a light sauce. I'm not trying to make this sound like a taco bell burrito. It's actually very light but filling without being greasy and leaving you tired.

For lunch I had another burrito but ate the inside mainly. Our deli puts white rice, black beans and spicy chicken in their lunch burritos. I did mix about 2 tablespoons of sour cream with it. I also bought 1 bag of Doritos. Looking back on this now, I should've gone w/a baked bag of Doritos. The salad bar was not that appealing so I went with this lunch instead. Also, I used to buy 2 bags of Doritos and only got one. I had also been eating a brownie later in the afternoon and today I did not. I saved the Doritos until about 3 hours later which is a change for me.

I had to go to my car to get something so I got in a 10 minute walk that concluded with my going up 4 flights of stairs.

Right now I've been home almost an hour and had 2 Twisted Polly-O string cheese sticks. I need to work on my dinner. As there are not a whole lot of options right now, it will either be tater tots or leftover Stouffer's mac & cheese. Ok, make that mac & cheese.

Today wasn't a horrible day-lots of drama at work. However, I managed to get through it without turning to chocolate or other sweets. (Oh and I had my boss hide one of the boxes of sugar cookies until after the new year. I figure by then I should be doing better with my food choices). Also, I had a great evaluation from my boss. I was so happy that the other drama didn't seem as important. It really made me feel valued and part of the team.

So today was emoticon and I'm proud of what I have accomplished. Less of the bad stuff plus I was able to get 10 minutes of exercise. Oh and I almost forgot: I got in 80oz of water today!

Tomorrow, I will shoot for an actual workout video-either Biggest Loser or Leslie Sansone. But I will do something because something IS BETTER than NOTHING!

I CAN DO THIS! emoticon

I forgot to put my starting weight: 298 emoticon

    Hi again, SONGBIRD!

    It helps to write these things down, eh? Then you can see in Black and White the progress you are making!

    I love that you are honest with yourself about your past eating habits and the steps that you are making to change them...that is great to reflect on - it really helps us to make healthy choices!

    Congrats on the exercise and the water! That is KEY in this journey!

    It's hard to do our best when we aren't prepared, isn't it? I know that if I don't have the right foods in the house, I will eat the wrong foods. In fact for me, if I have both the right AND wrong foods in the house, I will eat the wrong foods! LOL You did good today, but with some prep, some food shopping, some planning, you will do great!
