The plague...

Thursday, January 31, 2013

...I haz it, or so it feels like. Sinus funk, cold chills, and a general sloth type feeling. I managed to get in 30 minutes of cardio and do my Bootcamp video but, it was promptly followed by a nap. I wouldn't have managed the cardio but Leslie Sansone's Walk at Home videos are a life saver for a lazy day.

I'm managing fluids okay but, I haven't had much interest in solid food. I might have to whip up a smoothie or something because I was way under ALL my nutrition goals yesterday and at this pace I will be today too. Can't really accomplish any toning or weight loss on 1 slice of plain wheat toast and 8 ounces of grapefruit juice, that's just a little lacking on nutritional value...well, I could accomplish it but they call that an eating disorder. Food is my homie and we shall have a happy life together.

Not much to blog really. Didn't sleep well because I felt too yucky to really relax. I have no plans other than accomplish the basic household tasks of daily living and half way grooming myself. Yes, I have that over-sized sweatpants, ratty old comfy t-shirt, frizzled ponytail, OMG it's a housewife monster thing going on and if I might say so I am rocking it!


I've been really trying to analyze what changes I've made lately because I have had a very productive and positive loss this past week or so. Other than detox, and going vegetarian for a few meals, I've measured everything. It seems so strict and such a hassle but, I'm not denying myself anything.

Granted I didn't feel like eating last night but dinner was a Boca burger, .5 c grilled broccoli, .5 cup green beans, .5 mashed sweet potato, and a 1 oz whole wheat biscuit. That plate of small .5's all added up to a big plateful. I ate all my veg, my burger and then treated my dogs with pieces of my biscuit because I was full.

Maybe I'm finding my way. I'm always worried about not being able to afford to eat healthy...but, if I wasn't thinking along the lines of needing to eat my body weight in fruit, vegetables, whole grain, and protein I would realize that if I follow that little serving size recommendation on a label...I can actually make stuff go much further. I'm no longer eating myself out of house and home.

    Thats such a good point you make, I realized it also, that it is NOT expensive to eat healthy if you stick to SERVING SIZES... lol... Its the fact that we used to buy so much food and eat large portions that it didnt last long...im loving buying groceries exact for my recipes and some snacks. its so inexpensive compared to my eating out budget and i dont generally waste produce like before...i would throw away so much food because i didnt PLAN my meals I just went to the grocery store and PICKED things up not having a meal in mind.

    GO Girl!!!! Your doing great
