No hyper sex kitten-How's that for a title!

Thursday, March 28, 2013

Hello everyone! Last night I took some meds and was able to sleep better. I slept LATE though and therefore got a late start but that's ok!

I walked the dogs 3 x's---3/4 mile total
Walked over 2 miles at the park-rather than counting laps I just used the FitBit to track distance-a nice change of pace.

And I ate fairly well, mostly within range. And while I was picking up a script at walmart I picked up some chicken-many pounds of chicken. I cut it all into nugget sized pieces and froze most of it. I am still in the mood to make my own meal kits, spice mixes and so on. I have learned that when I get in that mode I should make the most of it. In a week or two I will want to shun all things kitchen related. LOL. It will be nice to use some of the things I've been prepping at that time.

I'm still thinking about what goals I will set for myself in April. Also considering a "rest" day in the schedule. I will probably keep a mileage goal, but lower than I have been setting. And I may add in some Coach Nicole videos. She is one of the best instructors I've seen . I love that she looks like a normal, healthy person and not some hyper sex kitten jumping all around . (((Wow, that was outta nowhere!)))

DH says that he would be able to really succeed on a meal plan if it were super structured. So that he would not have to count calories, or track. Basically if he had a Chef Rosie-like Oprah had , you know?

I am willing to help with that. I know that he will have to find his own motivation, and that any last success will be found within his own self. BUT I am willing to do what I can to help get the ball rolling. I have been blessed to be a stay at home mom for nearly 18 years, while he works to bring home the $$$. He has always been very generous with me. Indulgent of my hobbies and interests. ALWAYS patient with every diet, fitness plan, membership to WW, or the YMCA-you name it. He has loved me chubby, thin, obese, moody, unhappy, depressed, over the moon excited, confident, blindly optimistic , sick and healthy..and anything in between! Those reasons alone are enough for me to want to do this for him. There are additional things too---I love him dearly and want him to feel his very best, to enjoy life and have a LONG life!

What this means for me is--ALOT of menu planning . I love to organize and label ect so this CAN be fun . Also lunch packing and more cooking. I expect Monday to be DAY ONE of preparing all three meals for him.

I can't hurt the budget either! emoticon

Well, I am off to do some creative writing!

    emoticon emoticon emoticon MY DH also relies on me completely for healthy living. I DO work, and always have, while he has been home for a year and is just now getting back to work. It is tough, but I think we should make up for each others shortcomings and be a team.

    You sound so upbeat - yeah for you! I'm glad things are going so well. I just got my fitbit yesterday and just started using it today - so far, it is awesome! I like that it keeps me from always having to remember what I do - and I can add all the walking, etc. along with the other exercises. I'm glad your husband is so supportive - that is so helpful. Mine is as well - it really is a blessing.

    When I first started looking into things related to exercise - as far as apps, etc. - I found an app called NOOM or something like that. I am thinking of using it again. Since I make everything from scratch and use no processed foods - it is so much easier for me. It is not as accurate (I'm assuming - I don't really know ) but it really helped me realize mistakes I was making - for example - I thought I was eating more vegetables than I was. It really helped me see how I could make positive changes without counting every single item I put into a recipe. Hope that makes sense :-)

    Hope you have a wonderful day!

    It sounds you're going to be one busy lady with the meal planning, but it also sounds like it's something you'll be good at! You and your husband sound very happy, that is such a blessing! Have a great week-end!
