Thursday Already

Thursday, October 06, 2011

This week is zooming by! I think it has a lot to do with my attitude, I started exercising daily, nothing much , but a good start for me with five different exercises I do, and it makes me feel better about myself !
I've also started doing more around the house, let me explain........My husband Paul is OCD and he cleans the house, does the laundry , does everything short of cook for himself, for no one can do it better than he can is what he thinks, Through my depression and yes I'll admit it, laziness, I've allowed this to happen, I've allowed him to take total control of our home, never to lend a helping hand because he's just going to do it over anyways I told myself. Well this week so far, I've done laundry, vacuumed our carpets, rearranged our container cabinet , and washed the dinner dishes for all meals. And Paul has noticed I'm trying to get better, mentally and physically, actually thanking me for doing the laundry, with that said I did see him check his underwear drawer to see if I folded them right, lol.....but... he did not re-fold them!!!!!

I've moved my dinner time up from 630 to 530 for I read an article that said its better to eat the majority of your calories during the earliest part of the day...........but then to contradict that concept......I read another article that stated calories are calories it does not matter when you take them in. So which is it?? What are your thoughts on weather to eat earlier or calories are calories???

    I'm a night snacker, and always will be, so I allow for that in my diet. We all have to find our own way and what works for us. Spent years trying to fight the snacking, but now have found a way to work with it. emoticon

    I feel that the calories eaten in the morning and afternoon should be more than later and don't eat a few hours before bed. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Diana

    I believe that calories are best at the mid day meal.

    I tend to agree with what Blackrose said - it changes for each person. In addition, it changes for each type of food being eaten. Some foods take more time to digest and break down while others are into our bloodstream as sugar almost right away. It could even vary depending on what sorts of things you do after dinner in the evening. Sitting watching a TV show versus heading out for a walk.

    A great thing to do is use the Note at the bottom of the Nutrition page or journal and pay attention to how you feel after meals, how energetic you felt as well as how soon you're feeling hungry again. Try doing it one way for a week or two, then try it the other way. You'll learn better what will work best for your body.

    And emoticon on the exercises. It's really fun to be able to really see yourself getting stronger when you can do one more than before or do it with less struggling. More fun than holding our breaths and hoping for one less on the scale. ^_~

    I have heard both things but I have always been a evening snacker and always will be only now I watch what I put in my mouth at night. I dont believe its when you eat but what you eat. emoticon

    Really, both are true - and it changes for each person. What I personally like to think is one that I think we have all heard - "Eat Breakfast Like A King, Lunch Like a Prince, and Dinner Like A Pauper.".
    Aka. If you can have 1500 calories in a day - have a 600 calorie breakfast, a 500 calorie lunch, and a 400 calorie dinner... or break those up to include snacks.

    I heard that you don't really have to stop eating early in the evening. But do whatever feels best for you.
    Congrats for the added activity this week!

    That statement is true but Dr. Oz always says to eat before 7, I think. Something about keeping your metabolism up. Congrats on feeling better and keeping busy.
