Day 76

Sunday, May 27, 2012

I am still so happy that I am eating smart, healthy choices! I was looking in teh ice cream section yesterday and thought I should get a treat. I'm not a big sweet eater so what usually happens is that I buy something sweet then don't eat for months. But I wanted to check out the labels of ice cream. After looking at them all I looked at the labels for sherbet - which I actually like better. AND WHAT DO YA KNOW!? This is not only something I like better but is also about 130 calories a serving. Awesome! So I bought a rainbow sherbet for those times I want "something."

I've been experimenting with green curry soups. I have really come to LOVE soups. I can throw one together and add tones of veggies and then eat the whole pot for under 500 calories! It feels so decadent.

UPDATE: I did 10 modified push-ups and 20 sit ups.

So lately I've been kicking up the spice with green curry. I learned that if you follow the label on eh green curry for using coconut milk, you get curdled chunks. Edible but it looks terrible! Talk about a mis-adventure in cooking!!

So this time I'm making it by following the label on the coconut milk instead. Ahhhh ... looks much better. I generally add a protein (fish or chicken usually)green beans, mushrooms, baby carrots and after it's all ready to eat I top it with thinly sliced cabbage which adds great texture and gives a little something to chew.

I have yet to start doing anything for exercise. I have a huge resistance because I think I'll just quit before I reach my goal. I can't get past that mentally.

    Awesome stuff! emoticon

    As for exercise, do it just like you made changes to your eating. Start small. Do a few stretches and body weight moves a few times a week. Take a 10 minute walk. Reward yourself for moving! If it works for you, print out a calendar and get some cute little stickers. Give yourself a sticker for each day that you walk 10 minutes, get a different sticker for each day that you do 5 stretches, and another for each day you do push ups or squats, or whatever. At the end of the week, total 'em up. If you get, say 15 stickers, you get a reward, a new book, magazine, something. At the end of the month total 'em up and give yourself a bigger reward for reaching a goal.

    That is just one example. It might not work for you. Either way, Im here cheering for you!
