Very Active Day
I got up early, as usual, and did my CP25K routine... 35 minutes + stretching. Then I decided I wanted to feel it more, so I hopped back on the treadmill and walked (only 2.0mph) backwards. Later in the morning, S came up with the idea of taki... Read more
Enough of the Pity Party
I hope. I wasn't going to put my "new" weight in the tracker because I kept hoping it wasn't realy. Well, 1 week later and no change and I'm putting in my +6 or +7 pound increase tomorrow (my weigh-in day). And I'm not giving up. I'm wonderi... Read more
NOT a great couple of days
Not completely HORRIBLE either, but I'm feeling kinda down.
1. I am up 5 pounds. I know... TOM, sortof. I had LOST almost 5 pounds the week before TOM, and I was really doubting that number. So +5 (and no bad days, and all good exerci... Read more
Once again, dinner with the folks. A roast that I would have died for 6 months ago (heck... 2 months ago), baked potato and baked sweet potato, salad with homemade blue cheese vinaigrette, green beans with butter. I don't know about anyone els... Read more
I know I shouldn't....
freak out about weight gain during TOM - BUT I DO! Why do I do this to myself? There are so many positive reinforcements (BP, clothes fitting, feel better) - why is the scale the one that matters? Last month it happened - this month it's hap... Read more
I had a hypertension clinic yesterday - a 'check up' since my last clinic in November. Since then I had started clean eating, lost 10 pounds, started exercising regularly and started a new medication. Good news is my blood pressure is only not... Read more
Back at work and it was tedious today. But I ate well and have already had 9 glasses of water. yippee! Dinner is BocaBurgers, which I LOVE, my kids'll eat and my husband will eat if he doesn't pay attention. If he thinks its a turkey-burger,... Read more
And one more (funny) thing...
Both of my kids have eaten crab and lobster before, but it has been a while. I hadn't realized how long until we got to the dinner table and these were their questions...
3 YO - "what are those owie things?"
5 YO - "why is there chicken in... Read more
Well, the crab was yummy. I didn't drown it in butter, like usual. I DID drizzle 1 tsp on the last few bites, but since this is my high calorie day (calorie cycling) it turned out okay. I was, as I expected, over on sodium. HOpe that won't a... Read more
Sodium Be Damned
I am officially, intentionally, going over my limit on sodium today. I am having king crab for dinner and just one of those legs has over 1000 mg of the stuff. I'm limiting myself to 4 oz, and limiting sodium for the rest of the day as well. ... Read more
1.) Five pounds lost this week. 5 pounds. I always have heard that the goal should be 1-2 pounds per week. And I've lost 5. I kept weighing myself the last few days to see if it was a fluke. Apparently not. Even though I've been eating cl... Read more
Eating at the folks - first time for beef
What fun. They make great food, verbally support my lifestyle change, and then continue to serve white noodles, beef stew, etc. So... I'm eating beef for the first time since i started this journey. I am NOT going to turn up my nose at my par... Read more
Feelin' like a food Nazi
I am so excited about my clean eating that I just want to share it with everyone. I thought people would be excited and want to know more.... NOT.
"You have so much self-control - I just don't have enough self-control." = 'No, seriously, sin... Read more
Can this be correct???
The scale says that I'm down to 167 (166.9). I weighed myself 3 times. Can I be losing weight too fast??? (3 lbs in 4 days?) I feel really good and don't feel deprived at all.... Read more
I got up at 4:05am to do some cardio... I messed around on Spark for about 30 minutes (yikes) and only got in 30 minutes. Kindof a bummer. But I did something.
Now I'm off to the shower after tracking exercise. I'm still not sure what's ... Read more
