My Sweet Louis Birthday

Tuesday, December 17, 2013

Today my fiancée celebrated 55 years young today! We both had to work, so yesterday I took him to see that new Hobbit movie and to one of his favorite restaurant-Texas Roadhouse. He was pleased as punch. He gets into that Tolkien book and has been looking forward to this new movie for quite some time. I, on the other hand, was not expecting the movie to be three hours long and we went to the 3D IMAX theatre and some things weren't good for my vertigo. I am not a particular fan of this genre, but I made it all about Louis, his day.

I had a light bulb moment about my 21 Day fast, which is ending soon, along with my modified Daniel fast. I went into this for the Christmas season to start off eating healthier and getting on the fast track to being leaner. I went to my WW meeting on Sunday and found I haven't lost any real significant weight. I am down inches though and my clothes fit looser. The light bulb moment for me was that in order to lose weight, I have to eat the right portions and I need to start my day, every day with breakfast. I need fuel to burn, cut back on my carbs and more lean protein, more fruits, more veggies. Skipping meals, going into starvation mode, eating popcorn and pasta is not a winning plan, henceforth no weight loss. My new goal is to eat more and more of the power foods, cut back on the high fat carbs, drink my water more and begin C25k training again. Now is the time! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    emoticon albeit belated to Louis! 55 is young. I am glad you guys enjoyed this special day.

    Good for you on starting now. I will begin on January 1st.

    emoticon on your progress, losing inches is wonderful, please don't get hung up on that scale, it's not the whole story! emoticon ... More important is how you feel and how your clothes are fitting.

    Your plan sounds great. I too plan to cut back on starchy carbs and add more fruit/veggies. I will increase my carbs depending on my workouts. I am also going to cycle my carbs/calories too; try to keep this body confused.... at least that's the plan emoticon

    The Hobbit is intriguing. I first saw one in The Lord of the Rings, I am looking forward to seeing the Hobbit movies.

    Keep up the good work I am rooting for you! emoticon

    ... see you on FB... ~ Dee emoticon

    I know what you mean because I have trouble handling those 3D movies, also. I'm sure your fiance appreciated it, though. I need to reassess my eating and cut back on some stuff, also. Good luck with the rest of your fast
