On a more positive note. ..

Tuesday, April 24, 2012

Aaaahhhhh thank GAWD I'm gonna not b*tch and whine! You can all rejoice. (I think I'm rejoicing the most!)

Today was good. Today was happy. Was today perfect? Not by a long shot. But I'm a-ok with that because I don't need perfect. I need a happy, healthy balance.

Breakfast was amazing. Smoothie with 1 cup berry mix (blueberries, strawberries, blackberries and raspberries!), blended with 1 TBS coconut oil, 1/2 cup plain yogurt, 1 scoop vanilla protein and 1/2 a cup pineapple juice. NOMNOMNOM so good.

Healthy snack of carrots, 2 small slices of natural ham and a happy apple (Pink Lady apple ZOMG I died a happy girl.)

Lunch went downhill a bit... I had a bagel. lol And then dinner was a Starbucks White Mocha.


*BUT*... It all fit in my daily cals. (point one for me) It's my birthday tomorrow! (zero points) Aaand I got a 2 mile run in tonight! (point two for me) ... so I think I came out ahead! lol

Goal throughout the week... MOAR VEGGIES. I need to find a way to get veggies into my AM smoothie. hrrrm. New project. :)

But over all... a pretty good day. I'm going to finish it off with my evening stretching exercises (working on being over-all more flexible... I even have a trigger point massage therapist who's helping me once a week.) According to her, I can FIX my lower body inflexibility. I've been told by many doctors that it's impossible. Doctors are (IMHO) ...idiots.

Anyway. I'm going to finish my water bottle, stretch out and go to bed. Back to work tomorrow.

    I agree with adding in some spinach. Trust me, you won't even taste it over the berry taste. ;)

    I thought of you yesterday, as the 10 miler people were running down Lake :-)
    Happy Birthday Mere!!!

    You know, the ONLY that that matters- ever- is that you are here NOW- that you keep trying, no matter how long it takes to get to your goal!!!

    I am still here- have I lost any weight lately? Nope. But, I am still at the weight I have been since last June, which is a lot better than having put on another 20 lbs. The thing is that I stopped dieting and obsessing and started to be nicer to myself, rest more and be more relaxed. That's something, right? For me, it's so much more than just some number on the scale. It is a lot easier to feel confident when you look in the mirror and are excited about the fact that you are shrinking! On the other hand, it means a lot more to feel good about yourself on a day, that is not the case and I don't mean a day you stuff your face with crappy food.

    I hope Mexico is treating you well and that life is great over there- as long as you keep trying, the tide will turn and you'll start feeling all excited and great about yourself ONCE again. The thing is- you'll feel it even deeper the second time around!
    So good to see you blog again :-)

    Spinach or kale or parsley will all work in a morning smoothie!
    I'm glad you had a decent day Mere. Happy birthday!

    I heard spinach is a good veg for smoothies...

    and yay for you on stretching those inflexibles away! I'm glad that you are seeing someone who can help you with that!

    my happy apples are usually empires, and sometimes honey crisp, oh, so good!

    Carrots in your can steam or blanch the poo outta them..or juice them if you have one (a juicer) ;). Fresh do not "chop" to a smootie liking. But carrots are fab in smoothies if you can get them to a good place! Spinach acutally is not that bad either. That being said, small, start small ;) HAPPY BIRTHDAY tooo!!!
