I know I shouldn't....

Wednesday, January 16, 2008      0 comments

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

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

Saturday, January 12, 2008      1 comments

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

5 pounds?!?!?!?

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

Friday, January 11, 2008      0 comments

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

Good Start

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

A super Sunday

So I'm doing the usual 'get ready to go out' dance... looking through my closet at all the clothes that I hate - either because I feel fat in them or because they are too tight and I feel fat in them. ON a whim I pulled out a kahki skirt that w... Read more

A little bit sad...

Sunday, January 06, 2008      0 comments

First off - I am proud of myself. Stayed clean today and within my calorie range. Drank a TON of water (quit tracking at 8 glasses though), took my multi-vitamin and got on the treadmill. So what's up? Tonight we had our bi-monthly small... Read more

In My 'Thinner' Jeans

Friday, January 04, 2008      0 comments

Yep... I have lost about 6 pounds since I started this Clean Eating and this past week I noticed that my favorite pairs of jeans were hanging a little low. So I pulled out the 'too small - but barely' jeans just to see, and they fit! Now I've... Read more

Finally, we're home! It's been a long week, and I've got so much catching up to do before school starts. Good news first - I stepped on the scale when we got home (I ate really well - even with the traveling, and probably less because my choi... Read more
