I have found it easier and easier to control the amount of carbs that I ingest on a daily basis, and still get a great amount of fiber!! I need to look at getting more and more frozen veggies into the freezer as well. This is going to take some organization for sure. Perhaps the fridge freezer will be for my planned weekly meals, and the big freezer will be for the stocking up of those foods.
I need to get out there and pull some of the great frozen veggies that I know are in there and start USING them! I can make soups and stews and simple things like that to eat. It doesn't always just have to be a meat course, and two veggie sides. Time to start using the great recipe archives I have on hand here on the computer as well as in cook books. I have tons of fresh and frozen foods that I can be making myself meals with! My only problem is that I'm always worried that my family wont like it, or my husband is going to start pushing back at the way I've been cooking. He already rolls his eyes when I talk about how I've been eating, or what I've cut out of my diet, or when he sees my plate for dinner with my salad that covers over half of my plate, some meat and a cooked veggie.
I'm keeping the carbs low for a few weeks to see if that will jumpstart some weight loss. I know that I've lost inches, but I am overweight enough to know that I need to loose pounds as well. LOTS of pounds. When I started my weight loss 'battle' I weighed 250 pounds. My goal is 170 pounds by the end of 2012. That's a total of 80 pounds to have lost. I've lost 8 of those pounds so far. That is 1/10th of my goal =) I say thats pretty good, especially since I've been doing this mostly on my own, with zero support here at home. My dr says to do whatever works for me to loose the weight and get healthy.
I got my workout done today~ Feels great. I honestly cant wait to do my workout tomorrow as well. More squats, lunges and some shimmy drills for sure. Need to get those layers down!!! I can shimmy with the best of them, but getting the other parts of my body to do movements on top of those shimmy's is what I'm going for. LAYERS!
I'm excited to have joined the new forum "Being Primal" and am enjoying the course material that he has to offer, and I cant wait until more people get active and start sharing their tips, tricks, recipes, and more.
I'm hoping to get a decent night sleep tonight. my belly feels full, but I didn't over eat. I added my coconut oil to my chili instead of having it on the side with coconut milk. It was a nice addition, and I think it helped me feel fuller faster.
Time to get the kids into bed~ Then a shower for me and into bed myself. Or at least to watch a show.
