It's been a while

Wednesday, April 29, 2009

It's been a while since I've blogged. My wireless is crap at home and everybody wants to use my laptop when I am home because all we have is wireless so I can't get on it at all. Good thing I track all my foods at work, but I try not to be on the computer all like that at work, so I'm just like what am I suppose to do. Let's see my last blog was on 04/22/09....Let's see what had happened. My eating is okay...every once in a while I have a splurge, I learned that Dairy Queens Chocolate Covered Strawberry Sundae in a waffle bowl is 800 calories...I will not be getting that again. I did do alot of eating out on Saturday but I was conscienious but going to the club and drinking 1 sex on the beach and a shot that is the color blue didn't help matters much either. Sunday we went to Golden Corral which I did pretty good on...started my meals with a big salad as always and I did have some of there ice cream (which isn't even real ice cream it is ice milk). Then on Sunday Kisha and I went to a different park with the children and we walked for an hour. I like this park because it has hills...it is a true walking trail. Monday, we had hamburger and fries for dinner, I cooked....the fries were Checker Fries and you know a serving is 22 fries....I didn't think it was going to be alot, but it was. I'm learning about my body and how soon I get hungry. My body is like clockwork, it is hungry every 2 hours and if I don't eat within those 2 hours then I am starving and that is when eating anything and everything kicks in. Its hard, I was listening to Jillian Micheals on my MP3 player and she was talking about how your body oxidizes the food and if you are hungry all the time you are a fast oxidizer...well that is what I am. So now I am researching on what foods will keep my full so I am not constantly hungry. Its hard because I know I won't have the money to buy whatever it is to keep me full. But I am learning, I will keep you posted on that. So I gained 2 pounds this week, you can probably tell because of the Diary Queen ice cream I had on Saturday....I told Kisha I won't be splurging like that for a while. I told her that I will splurge every once in a while but I can't go all out crazy. The plan today is to stay within calorie...I'm about to eat this apple even though I already ate my breakfast oatmeal and 4 hard boil eggs (whites only). I may start incorporating a protein shake with my breakfast so I can fill ultra full. But anyways Kisha and I are going to walk today and I want to go to the other park, I want to try to incorporate a light jog with the walking...alternating. Well I have to go...time to do some work.

    not to worry about the 2 lbs., it'll come off the way it came on, just like whatever other weight you want to lose. walking in the park sounds relaxing and fun at the same time. can't beat that, right? and i agree about the dq splurge. if i want something like that (and i DO get the ice milk, frozen yogurt, or whatever it is when i go to the ok corral that's near me), i steer clear of the chocolate sauce, whipped cream, gummy bears, jelly beans, and everything else. i find that if chose and concentrate on the main thing i'm really wanting (read: when i succumb to an ice cream craving), i want just that, i want to taste only that. i have a few spoons, and then i'm over it. savoring it, experiencing it, and letting it go after that are helpful things for me. i feel less deprived (let's not get into the depraved dept.) and feel better about this whole, new world of lifestyle-change. good luck to you and on your journey and keep blogging! best, n

    Since I started tracking my meals in the nutrition thing, I've been shocked by how many calories one little thing can be. So as long as you are aware it will be helpful in stopping you from eating less of something. I am working on resisting ice cream so I started freezing bananas (at first they were chocolate covered bananas and now they are just plain). I'm addicted.
