Progress and Questions

Wednesday, December 10, 2008

It has been a couple of days now, since I started following a more Vegetarian lifestyle, and I have to say that I have seen some changes in me. I seem to have more energy, even with the medication I need, and I am working on getting the exercise into motion. I have found it difficult to get the daily protien I need a day, which makes me go over my calorie limit, but I have found that I love Veggie burgers, and now I have an excuse to eat Vegetables all day long if I want emoticon. I am working on giving up my beloved chicken and fish, but I hit a snag when I ended up getting these home style sugar cookies, which are my favorite!! I am doing okay with having them in moderation, but I do have those moments. I do have some questions though, and I would love some advice...

1) What kind of cardio can be done indoors during the winter?

2) What are some good protien and fiber rich foods so I can not be so hungry all the time?

Thanks for the support and comments I have recieved lately, we can do it!!

God Bless,

    I like Leslie Sansone's Walk Away The Pounds (WATP) videos. Once I got the moves down, I can do it anywhere to any music anytime. Some of my friends love The Firm videos but they are too fast paced for me. There is an older sparker who loves doing Tae Bo. She said she doesn't worry about doing it perfectly: Just get up and move. Whatever you do, have fun doing it.

    The best combination of protein and fiber all in one neat little package would be your beans. Legumes, black beans, pinto beans, red beans, chili beans, you name it! My favorite use of a bean is hummus. Yum. I dip veggies in it at lunch and it's just wonderful. lol. Other fiber rich foods would be whole grains, veggies (broccoli springs to mind instantly). Protein rich foods would include some dairy (yogurt and cheese), soy products, eggs (if you haven't cut them out with your vegetarian eating).

    Indoor cardio for the winter time ... have you looked into DVDs? I think that would be the most popular choice. I've also got my bike hooked up to an indoor trainer, so it's as good as a stationary bike to me during these dark, cold winter months. I'm already looking forward to spring so I can get back outside! Winter and I don't get along at all!
