I love to bake (and eat) home made bread--it is so much better than store-bought! Unfortunately I don't have anyone to share it with anymore, and its just too much work for just me--besides, its a real temptation for me.

Glad you had a good breakfast and a good lunch today! Keep up the good work!

Hugs, Pat

Blessings,
Pat

I can't believe March is over, it's so amazing how quickly time goes by.

Thank you for the link Pat! I'll read it when I get home today :-) I did have a good breakfast this morning!

I made my own bread last night too. I usually bring a sandwich to work for lunch. I made a great tasting whole wheat bread with only 7 ingredients, take a look at the list of ingredients on your bread loaf and lets compare, lol.

Heather, I don't know what all Spark things you subscribe to, but in today's Weekly Spark, there was an article about breakfast, and since you struggle with that area of your day, I am taking the liberty of giving you the link to the article, in case you didn't receive it from Spark. Hope you are doing well, and have a great breakfast today!

Yea!!! We made it through the month of March and I know I have made substantial progress on my goals. Today I will put up a new thread for April and I hope you and others will join me in making a goal to change one or two little things that will make a big difference over the long run in whether we reach and maintain our goals or not.

Hugs,
Pat

Thanks, Heather...it's not so much muscle soreness as it is joint inflammation, which is part of degenerative joint disease--I had been enjoying a reprieve for the past month, but it hit me big time Saturday--not sure whether it was prompted by the exercise or weather, or just my immune system rebelling, but right now, every joint in my body is on fire and my usual medications are not helping because I have to rebuild a serum level. Hopefully tomorrow will be better. I did get outside but only briefly--it was so windy!

Blessings,
Pat

I'm back from the mountains - thank goodness the ride back was NOT in the rain - and read through your chat. Also reading my Spark Mail and I got this quote several days ago -

Be not afraid of going slowly; be afraid only of standing still.

- Chinese Proverb

I think that's a good summary for all of us in March. Heather made some small changes for herself and did well with them. Pat is working diligently on sleep and having success.

About the breakfast conversation. That's not my biggest meal of the day but it's always between 400 and 500 calories. I also eat a decent calorie lunch - between 400 and 500 and have around a 200 calorie snack in the afternoon. I'm trying to stay, in reality, between 1700 and 1800 calorie a day so on a really big breakfast, lunch and snack day I have between 500 and 600 calories left for supper. I don't usually eat that much. I have a glass of milk before bed which burns up another 100.

So over time, I've become an "eat your calories earlier in the day" person and while I sometimes am hungry right before supper - usually a result of neglecting the snack - this "lifestyle" works for me.

Hope you all have a restful day. Joan, be super careful driving back.

I had a painful night without much sleep--don't know if it is the weather, or from going to the gym yesterday, but all my joints are on fire. Not going to let that deter me from my program, although I think I will probably not walk as far as I have been.

Blessings,
Pat

Heather, like I said, I am a slow learner--evidently--because I am 60+ and still fighting this weight. Looking back over my past attempts, I see a recurring pattern that I am trying hard not to repeat.

Before, I have always jumped in with both feet and tried to fix all my problems at once. That usually led to a lot of little individual failures and a lot of guilt. This time I have decided to divide my goals into smaller ones and tackle them one or two at a time. For a month or so until I feel I have each under control, and then add something else to the mixture.

So far, that has been working well for me. I am eating better, watching my salt, walking, and sleeping better--although that one is still not conquered completely.

I wish I had known 40 years ago what I know now. Please stick with us--stay accountable--keep trying--until you get it conquered. Then stay with us, stay accountable--and keep trying to maintain your goals because they are sometimes very slippery things that struggle to take you back to the beginning.

Big hug!
Pat

Blessings,
Pat

Pat that is very interesting. That is the one thing I've never understood. It is forced down our throats our whole life that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, yet it's usually the smallest. Most people go 5-6 hours before lunch, with maybe one small snack in between. Hardly enough calories to fuel us for a busy day. But our largest meal is dinner, which most people eat before plopping down on the couch for a few hours before heading off to bed? I guess if you've been active all day you may be in a burn calorie mode even while you're sleeping, but for most of us we've eaten a bulk of our calories just before we've become the least active of our day? Where's the logic in that? Even if there's a 10 hour gap from your last meal to breakfast you've probably taken in way more calories than you needed to get you through. But alas, I am no nutritionist.

So we are nearing the end of March, how did we do on our goals?

I didn't really set a long term goal but more weekly goals

I've stuck to the meal plan with only a few exceptions, I've gotten in at least 3 complex carb servings and 3 fruit servings a day, I didn't keep up with my fitness goals but I think I've made great improvements from where I was!

Something that strikes me every time I am hospitalized, is that they feed you a huge breakfast, a moderate lunch, and a light dinner. I always think I am going to eat that way when I get home, but that's not how most of us were raised. And I think--somewhere down deep--I am afraid to spend too many calories on breakfast because I might be hungry later.

Almost always, I have about half my daily allotment left for dinner, and I'm just not that hungry then. I think for my April short term goal, I may address that problem.


Blessings,
Pat

I am quite jealous of you Joan! My mother and I usually take a long weekend to visit Asheville every spring, but a job change and minimal vacation time has no allowed for it the past few years, this one included. I hope the rain stays away for you!

I think part of my breakfast on the go choices aren't the best sometimes. I've been known to take a bag of cereal and a container of milk to work and eat at my desk. I made some muffins last week, but they were so tiny and less than filling which left me hungry. I try to follow the meal plan provided as much as possible and I think I'm just not eating enough for breakfast.

Ah, Joan--the retreat sounds wonderful. What better than hot coffee and a cool mountain morning! Enjoy your weekend!

Heather, get some rest and I hope you will be able to find some ways to de-stress this weekend. A few minutes of "cat therapy" (that's my cat sitting on my lap purring while he gets a kitty massage) does it for me. When I had a dog, it worked sort of the same way, except without the purring. haha.

Later, friends!

Hi y'all. It is not raining at the moment up here in the mountains. I'm at a church camp - staying with friends who run it. I walked down the mountain to the year round retreat building early to get coffee and there is considerable fog in the valleys below, but none up here. Coming in last night, it was like driving through pea soup.

Heather consider what Pat says, and you can also compromise with a breakfast on the go so to speak. An apple is already ready to eat and add a glass of milk or some peanut butter toast and you are set.

Hi ladies! Joan--I hope you have a wonderful time this weekend--a chance to get away to the mountains in the spring--what could be better, besides some sunshine. I hope you get some well-deserved rest in that good mountain air.

You are right--I was starving (haha!) by dinner, and I did cook myself a good meal, but I ended up at 1098 calories for the day--afraid my body is going to rebel at that. I'll do better tomorrow.

Heather--I'm glad your work week is over and I hope you have some time to relax this weekend and play with your dog.

You sound so much like me at your age. It's tough to get up and get everything done before work, and skipping breakfast just sets you up for the hungries and bad food choices. Suggestion--decide the night before what you will have for breakfast. And eat breakfast before you get ready. Tell yourself that you have to eat before you can get dressed--then do it. Try it for a week and see if you feel better.

Look at me--all full of advice. I remember when my grandma was in her 90's she told me she enjoyed being old because she could speak her mind. If people didn't like what she said, they would just chalk it up to her being old and senile! Haha!

Hugs,
Pat

Blessings,
Pat

Hi! Things got crazy at work the last few days.

I am just not a morning person, I don't have to be to work until 9, I try (key word try) to get up around 630 so that I can eat and get ready and walk the dog. Up until about 2 months ago I didn't go in till 11 so it was easy to get up by 8 or 830. I still am not use to this getting up early thing, so I usually miss out a good breakfast and I can tell a difference, I'm starving by my lunch everyday so I'm going over my calorie count by adding in yogart and granola or fruit. While those are healthy choices, but at this stage it's not helping.

My 'workout' plan this week was a disaster. I missed shimmy on tv, I keep trying to see if its on again another time. I started the week great, but the last two days and today I've only gotten in my stretching. I have to say, the stretching is amazing, I knew I was getting 'tighter' since I stopped doing pilates on a regular basis, but wow, I'm so sore the next day, just from 10 min of stretching! I think that will be a long term 'goal' to get in stretching everyday.

Hope you ladies have a great weekend!

Hey Pat - such a busy day. I left work at 1pm and am in the NC mountains staying with friends for a rainy weekend. I'm about to turn out the lights.

Not that I know anything explicit about it, but that doesn't sound like enough calories to sustain a mouse through your day. Hope you ate supper.

Have a good weekend all.

Yes, team, I am alive and kicking--you people who get up and get yourselves to work every morning really have my respect (granted, I did it all my life till about 10 years ago when my knees gave out on me).

I had a dr appt in Chapel Hill at 9 this morning--it took me an hour to get there, counting filling the gas tank. I was up early enough, showered, washed my hair, turned on the computer and started on my stack of e-mail, answered a phone call, and was out the door by 8, but I did not eat breakfast--I took a granola bar and an apple with me. Then when the appt was over, I ran some errands and decided to stop at Walmart in Holly Springs--Good thing I had the apple to munch on for lunch--it kept me out of McDonalds. So when I got home at 2:45, I put away groceries and made a grilled cheese sandwich on WW bread. YUMMY--I was running on empty. So far today, 470 calories. Do I want to go cook dinner--no, but I will.

Hope you all had a wonderful Friday and are gearing up for a great (if wet) weekend!

I've seen WATP in other posts and wondered what it is. How does one access it? Let me know if you find out.

Heather - if you do the Shimmy thing, I'd love to hear about it. Consider taping it so you're not dependent on finding it right when it's on. That way, if you like it you can do it several times.

Pat - The amazon idea sounds great as well. In another group I'm in - Where are YOU Walking to? - there are a number of folks who use something they refer to as WATP (Walking Away the Pounds) for cardio. This is a video led walking activity apparently. They really like it and some of them have to depend on it in winter in Minnesota to get their walking miles in.

Oh, I love Shimmy--when my daughter was here, we recorded it, but we were both too embarrassed to do it in front of each other. Now that she has moved back to Texas, I no longer have that channel so I was just today looking on Amazon for some beginning belly dancing and line dancing dvd's to keep me moving.

Pat

Joan you're a mind reader! I've been trying to keep track of what programs come on FitTV. There's actually a program coming on in 10 min called 'Shimmy'. I have no idea what they'll have me do but I'm going to at least follow along for 10 min! I'll let you know how it goes ;)

Heather - here's a thought. I think that channel 68 maybe in the TimeWarner cable in Cary has some fitness shows/classes. Maybe you could tape one that appeals and then give it a try for a different activity.

Hi Heather...I think what I did during that Spark Stage was to try two activities I'd never really tried before. So, since I have access to a fitness center at my job, I rode a fitness bicycle (which I detested, but at least I tried it) and I used the rowing machine.

Thank you ladies for so much encouragement! The goal really is not clear for this week, it just says do 2 more cardio activities than you were doing. I don't know if that means to add two different exercises to my normal routine or actually add 2 days of doing cardio. I did take the dog on a mile walk when I got home today, and did 10 min of stretching while dinner was cooking. I did feel better and a little happier afterwards too.

I used to work for the cable company so I had every possible channel offered and it becomes so addictive so quickly. We'd be a healthier country if there wasn't so much 'TV'. I was always shocked at the women that called in during the day livid because there cable was out and they had no idea what to do with their children!

I think it will be much easier with warmer and longer days coming.

Another reason not to watch TV - unnatural body images. I also do not respond well to being yelled at.

Jillian Michaels--she's one of the trainers on Biggest Loser. You also see her skinny and perfectly toned little body on all kinds of ads on-line. She has a series of work-out videos and she is somewhat akin to a military drill sergeant. My daughter keeps threatening to call Jillian to whip me into shape.

Pat

So except for college basketball and football and the Andy Griffith show, I don't really have the TV on. (By the way, keeping the TV off frees you up for many other things, but that's a topic for another day.)

I am aware that there is a show called Biggest Loser as I read about it in the newspaper.

Who is Jillian?

Hi, Heather, thanks for the kind words of encouragement.

Now won't you feel silly if this poor old crippled woman can out-walk you in a few months? You know you can do "something". Joan is right. Don't set yourself impossible goals--those just give you an excuse to fail.

I did my "trail" as soon as I got dressed this morning and it made me feel so good, I may do it MORE than one more time today! Find little things to boost your metabolism--walk purposefully instead of just strolling, run up the stairs--even if you don't need to go upstairs, just to get your heart pumping. Machines are fine, but they can also be an excuse--just couldn't make it to the gym.

I loved the Biggest Loser week when one team was banned from the gym--at first they couldn't think of anything to do for exercise--then Bob came and showed them all sorts of things to do to burn calories. At the weigh-in they beat the team that had gym privileges!

You are strong and you can do anything you set your mind to. Tonite after work, put your dog in the car, drive to the nearest park or walking trail, and get moving.

Just call me Jillian!

Hugs, Pat

Blessings,
Pat

So Heather, remember, this Spark thing is all about making small changes. I can't recall the details of week 3 of stage 2, but I think its goal is to get you a little bit more active than you are. It tries to get you to try things. There is no need for you to do 60 minutes of exercise a day. Just commit to 10 minutes. And you can do this if you like - if you hate what you are doing after giving it a good try for 10 minutes, then quit for the moment.

Also, it doesn't have to be strenuous to start off with. Maybe if you're going say to the mall or grocery store this week you can park at that faraway parking place and walk to the door of the store or mall. That might take 5 minutes.

If you work in an office during the day, get up and walk around the hallways or take the stairs. I'm sure you can think of other ways of sneaking extra steps into your day.

In closing, I get out and walk or do elliptical or something most every day because I've been doing it since I was a teenager, except for those couple of years with the elderly cats. In getting back to this good habit, I had to ease myself into it. There's absolutely no reason why you can't ease yourself into it. After a while, you'll wonder why you ever thought it would be a problem keeping this habit going.

I have confidence in you!

Oh, and for more motivation go visit my friend Owlwho's Spark Page and take a look at her amazing transformation. sparkpeople.com/mypage.asp?id=OWLWHO
I also highly recommend her Blog from 3/18/09. It tells about how she eased herself into regularly getting out and moving. She lives in Minnesota - they have winter there emoticon -- so she had lots of icy obstacles.

Keep us posted on your exercise progress so we can prop you up.

So my goal for week 3 of stage 2 is to commit to more regular exercise. We'll see how this goes. When I got a dog I thought it would make me more active and we'd go on nice long walks, that didn't last too long. The neighborhood I lived in and have now moved to don't have the most friendly walking areas. Joan I wish I had your motivation to go to the park.

I used to do Pilates on a regular basis, and that is pretty quick and easy, just have to find time to do it. My apartment complex has a few pieces of fitness equipment, I guess I could go hop on the treadmill one day a week after work. This is going to be a tough week for me I can tell. Problem is, even if I manage to get through it, will I be able to keep it up?

Pat, that is not wimpy by any means! That is the best type of goal setting, small and slowly increasing. You should be proud that you are not using excuses to not exercise! My mother had a leg condition, that now we know was attributed to being diabetic, and she would never walk for exercise because she was always in pain. After finally getting help for her legs, not only is she happier, but she is making little efforts everyday to walk. Keep up the good work!

Thank you for posting, Joan. Because you said what a lovely day it is for walking, I got out and walked. I have been (I know this is going to sound wimpy) adding about 50 feet each time I go out, for the past week. But I hope to build up the distance I can tolerate till I don't have to use a scooter in the grocery store. Looking forward to my appt with the sports doc to see if he has a support for my fibula so it won't hurt so badly, but till I am steadier on my feet, I am planning to do my little "trail" more than once a day. Starting tomorrow, I am walking before breakfast too.

I am doing very well on my food plan--even took my dinner to my daughter's to avoid nasty frozen pizza-- but alas, my sleep is but little better. A 4 hour stretch is about all my bladder will allow, and then if I'm not back to sleep in 10 minutes, I flip on the TV again.

So glad you are back!
Pat

Blessings,
Pat

I get the heart thing & hydration. I had a cat who lived to be over 20 years old and the last few years she was diabetic. So we were always worried about the interaction among her heart, kidneys and diabetes. She is part of the reason I gained the 25 or so pounds I've lost with Spark. I spent an awful lot of time taking care of a cat and not taking care of me. That was part of it. The other part was slacking off from a more active lifestyle after breaking an arm badly. Then the cats health - I had two of them from the same litter - went downhill and I ended up running an assisted care facility for elderly cats! By the way, no more pets for me.

I'm not logging my food again yet, but will begin that tomorrow. I'm transitioning back to a disciplined lifestyle. That written, I've been very good Saturday and today with my food choices.

Just got back from a walk in Bond Park. The trails are still quite muddy but the park is packed with people everywhere and cars parked NOT in parking spaces. It's a nice day to be outside.

Joan, we missed you, too. I am so glad you had a great time in the sun. Actually, the weather here wasn't that bad, but it did rain Thursday night with the cool front. I am definitely ready for Spring.

I have been just plodding along, staying with the program, but not really losing anything. Still not quite stabilized between sufficient hydration and water retention. That's a heart thing, but I have really been concentrating on sodium levels and have managed to stay fairly below the RDA of sodium. Eventually that has to help. And I have been trying to get out a little more and not be so sedentary, although I am looking forward to my appt next month with the sports medicine clinic to see why my right fibula is painful when I walk. (I am 3 years past double knee replacement surgery). Doing somewhat better sleeping.

Well, it's late, ttyl

Hi Heather & Pat - missed you both while I was away, and just finished scanning your posts. You both are doing great. I really love the positive attitude you both have.

Guess I missed some nasty weather here? It was pouring rain last Saturday when we flew out and I went for a walk through Bond Park after I got home this afternoon and have a very muddy pair of sneakers. Guess I missed some lousy weather? We had good weather in Florida - lots of sun and reasonable temperatures - nothing higher than maybe mid 80s and a nice cooling off every evening.

I posted this in another thread - I'm co-leader of Where are YOU walking to team - and we have a monthly goal thread where we chat. So, I set a few goals for my Disney trip and here are the results.

Goals for Disney Trip
-relax - though I was in charge of details and making sure things were lined up for the day. But it went well, and my nephew at age 11 is very easy to be around. emoticon

-make good food choices - not always. We were on the concierge floor of the resort - got upgraded. And there was always around. But I never finished any meal set in front of me, so I guess it could have been worse.

-enjoy the time with Mom & Nicholas(my nephew) Most definitely. The best moment was when we all got drenched on Splash Mountain. The worst moment was when I had a moment of insanity and went on the spinning (read sickening) version of Mission Space. I did not really eat the supper set in front of me that evening. Then again, the nephew was very quiet. Neither of us actually got sick, but we were pitiful. emoticon

-laugh - - Yes, lots. emoticon

-don't let any little gotchas get me down There really weren't any little gotchas - really only a couple of we just adjusted. emoticon

I'm proud of you for getting a whole wheat sandwich for lunch--it would have been so easy to be "bad". Don't know if you have tried it, or like it, but on days I am having a hard time getting veggies in, I have some V-8. I used to hate it, so I would slam it down, but now I really like it.

I had a successful day, but I am under my calorie allotment, so I may try to get in an apple later--maybe not.

Have a great weekend!

Blessings,
Pat

Today is rough day for me, I was late for work so I didn't eat breakfast till after 9, and then because I was late I didn't take my lunch so I had to make do with what was available in the cafe, not to bad just didn't get whole wheat for sandwich. I guess I'll have to cram in some fruits and veggies for dinner!

Keep up the good work Pat! I hope Joan isn't getting rained on this week, I know they had some pretty heavy rain in Fl this week too.

Here's to a restful weekend!

Good afternoon--I'm off to a late start today! Happy St. Pat's Day!

I am doing great! I got out of the house yesterday--went to the grocery store and got some meat, fruit and veggies. My spirits are better than this weekend--I have a bad habit of just staying in when its cold, and then I get lonely.

Hope you are doing well this week, you said it has been troubling--hope its just work. Let me know if I can do anything to help.

Oh, Sunday I actually went to sleep without the TV and slept 6 hours straight. That's the best I've done lately. Last night I fell asleep at 8:30ish. I was watching Dancing with the Stars and the next thing I knew, Oprah was on and it was the middle of the night! haha.

This weather sure has made it difficult to stay motivated. I've spent most of it on the couch or in bed.

I'm now on week two of stage two and my goal for this week is to get at least 5 servings of fruits/veggies a day. I don't think it will be that hard, I've been following the meal plan for almost a month now. We'll see.

I am losing pounds but no inches, I don't get it? Probably do more exercise. I think that's coming next week in my 'plan'. Today I'm going to Bed Bath and Beyond to buy a new digital scale with the 20% coupon. Here's to a brighter week!

Awww, thank you, that brightened my gloomy day! I haven't felt well the past few days so it has been a struggle to stay on track, but I've managed.

It's nice having so much support here :-) Thank you. Keep up the good work and I know we'll come out on top!

Don't forget the lowly bean - black beans, red beans, pinto beans, navy beans, black eyed peas... I could go on and on. They are a good protein source I believe. And maybe you can manage the salmon if you keep the serving sizes small--to stretch a buck--and surround it by good things like brown rice & beans!

Having a hard time with the protein, too. Part of it is not wanting to cook, part is not being able to afford the protein I want--salmon, steak, etc. I have been adding protein powder to diet pudding lately. Not bad when you get used to it.

You are right, I need to be at the high end of my calories. When I drop too low consistently, I don't lose as well--that starvation mode thing. Part of it is adjusting to living solo--its just so hard to go cook for one. Some days my snack calories are higher than any of my meals, which my dr says is ok because eating smaller oftener is good. I don't feel like I am depriving myself, I'm just not that hungry.

I am starting to sleep better, maybe I'm getting more comfortable with being alone at night.

Blessings,
Pat

I was over again on calories yesterday, but not by too much. In looking back at the breakdown of protein, carbs and fat, I'm in the right range, but I'm at the low end of protein. Maybe that explains why I'm hungry. I'm going to try to get the protein up towards the middle of that range over the next few days and see what happens.

Pat - hope you are doing well. Make sure you get enough calories. 1051 sounds really low.

I'm a firm believer in a brownie now and then. They are my true weakness and I find that if I deprive myself, within a week, I'll probably do something worse. You are right on track. emoticon

Had a tough time with food again yesterday, only ate 1051 cal, ruined the chicken by overcooking. Slept better, got 9 hours, but I was awake nearly an hour in the middle. Getting there.

Hope you all have a great day before the weather turns cold again!

Pat

Had to attend the church board meeting last night to be present for a financial report. They eat supper before their meetings. The chili was fine and for the most part healthy, but I should not have had the brownies. I believe I was about 150 calories over for the day if my estimates are close.

But today is another day and all meals are planned and ready.

I'm not even sure how to describe Humble Pie, it's a small restaurant downtown that's inside a warehouse, I know small and warehouse don't belong in the same sentence. The service wasn't the greatest either, but the food was great. Every table gets a bottomless basket of biscuits, which I heard were great with there homemade honey butter. Every meal was served with a slice of cantaloupe.

That's not a bad midnight snack, that's actually what I had for my evening snack. I tell you, great minds really do think alike!

My mom has a similar issue with not sleeping well and waking up and watching TV. Six hours is great! How did setting the sleep timer work for you?

Bond Park isn't exactly where the dog park is. If you've come down Harrison into Cary and then turned right on Maynard, then the dog park will be on your left before you get to Chapel Hill Road.

To get to Bond Park, you keep driving past the dog park, through the lights at Chapel Hill Road, James Jackson Road, and the one at the shopping center with the Kroger. Then you get to the corner of Maynard & High House (Wendy's and Blockbuster on the corner), then turn right and drive down High House. Bond Park is across the street from St. Michael's Catholic Church.

Bond Park was a zoo, if a zoo is defined as a place with lots of dogs. Everybody was out and about. Lots of activity on the lake and several folks flying kites and all sort of things going on.

I love the trails at Bond Park...did about 5 miles today.

I had brunch with the ladies at Humble Pie, I wasn't sure what to expect, but they have a very limited brunch menu. I'm sure my fat intake for that meal was not correct, but I only went over calories by 25 today.

Great minds must think alike, when I got home from brunch I thought about taking the dog to Bond Park for a walk, but I figured it would be really crowded today and I've only been there once. So I opted for a walk around the neighborhood.

hmm, I'll have to look for it. Lived by the airport for 2 years and now by Crossroads mall, I have driven through that area a lot, is that where the dog park is?

I age 1139 cal today, but I think I'm done, blood sugar is about 30 points higher than I like to see. Not sure if it was the grapes or the V8.

I am so sleepy! Hope I do well tonite.

Welcome Heather - the more the merrier!

Pat, I think I've been to Brier Creek maybe 3 times in total. I just don't head in that direction very often anymore. If I'm over there, or know I'm headed over there, and a meal is in the plan, I'll have to take a look.

That no guilt gene can be a problem. Conversely if I know I really truly did something bad, I do feel really guilty about it. But giving into a "gotta have it" if it saves me in the long run from constantly straying is frankly okay.

On the other hand, I was invited to Irregardless for lunch today after church for a very good friend's birthday. I went. Ate eggs benedict. Had a healthy breakfast and will be having fruit and vegetables for supper likely.

Just got back from a 5 mile walk through Bond Park and listening to Carolina vs. Duke. (I'm an NC State fan so I have no "skin" in this game.)

Wish I had a "no guilt" gene--in the past I have let a little slip become an excuse for a binge. No more--I've turned that corner.

Jason's Deli is a chain, at least we had 'em in Texas, too. There are three that I know of in the area--one is on Spring Forest in Raleigh, one is on Brier Creek in Raleigh, and one is in New Hope Commons in Durham. None particularly close to Cary, but I happened to be shopping in Brier Creek yesterday with my daughter. Check out their on-line menu--they have several diet friendly items plus a wonderful organic salad bar, however dressing is my downfall.

Hi ladies! I feel like I'm interrupting your discussion here, lol. This month I'm keeping it simple with a goal of only sticking to my meal plan. I've done really well so far this month. Only day I missed was Friday, we did a potluck lunch at work, but I only had 1 plateful where as I normally would have had 3-4 plates and not eat dinner.

I'm Heather :-)

Hey Pat -

I don't feel bad (I have this problem with never feeling guilty emoticon ) about that biscuit. I feel like I made the right decisions to compensate. At the end of the day, according to the Spark tool in the Nutrition area I was over in sodium and over in fat, but most days I am under in both those categories. So on the average, I'm good.

Cantaloupe... It's been on sale a lot lately. I got one for 99 cents somewhere last week, maybe Harris Teeter and saw this week they are buy one get one free. So This cantaloupe sat on my counter for about 6 days never getting riper as far as I could tell. So I cut it, thinking maybe it's rotting from the inside. It was hard as a rock, no flavor at all. I tossed the whole thing. I think I'll wait for local cantaloupes this summer at the farmer's market.

Glad that you planned and avoided the biscuit.

Where is Jason's Deli? I'm not familiar with it.

Don't feel bad about one not-so-great meal. You are doing GREAT!!!

I almost did the same thing for breakfast--I had planned to stop at McD's for a sausage and egg biscuit, but I looked it up first so I could enter the info in my nutrition log--whoa! 510 cal, 290 cal from fat and a whopping 1180 mg sodium. I didn't want it that bad--settled for no sugar added instant breakfast in skim milk. But even if I had eaten the sausage biscuit, it wouldn't have ruined my day or my week. In the past, a slip-up would have meant a 10-pound gain from bingeing.

My daughter took me to lunch at Jason's Deli and I had the roast beef slimwich with strawberries and nasty cantelope, but lunch was about 400 cal, so I am considering today a success. Except it is 9 pm and I haven't eaten dinner yet. Think I will just have some yogurt and fruit and call it good.

Sleep well--I'll try to do the same.



Blessings,
Pat

I was over today - not surprising since I started out with a Bojangles bacon, egg & cheese biscuit - the worst breakfast choice at Bo's. Oh well.

Anyway, my average is under 1700, and tomorrow is another day. I adjusted after my crazy over the top breakfast and had a dinner consisting of broccoli, baby carrots, red pappers and a sweet potato with yogurt and fruit for dessert.

Pat - hope you are continuing to do well.

emoticon Hooray for staying under calories!!! I have set myself an arbitrary goal of 1200 to 1600 calories with a view toward keeping my protein up and my carbs as low glycemic as possible to keep my blood sugar level. It is much easier now that my daughter has moved out and her food desires are no longer my temptation! I know that most of my sleeplessness is getting used to being alone again--she even took the dog with her. So I feel a little vulnerable now.

Hope you have a great weekend.

Pat

Today is off to a good start - granola, blueberries and milk for breakfast. Nothing like a bowl of cereal. I buy a lot of frozen berries. Winter fruit is so ... well...uninteresting. Can't wait until it's time to hit the farmer's market for fresh stuff.

I like that you have a plan for the "fall asleep on the couch" problem. Let me know how it turns out.

You're doing a great job on your calories! I am finally off my plateau, which has been frustrating, since I have done so well on my nutrition--but not so well on exercise and sleep. I had a veggie dinner last night--brussels sprouts, baked sweet potato, and beet/onion salad. Gotta get to the store for some chicken breast. We'll see in a few minutes how my blood sugar did without any protein for dinner.

Sleep--fell asleep on the couch again. I just laid down to stretch my back and the first commercial, I'm out like a light. Then when I do get up and go to bed, its hard to get back to sleep. Today I am going to move my reading lamp into the bedroom since I seldom read in the living room lately. Altogether, about 8 1/2 hours of sleep. I am feeling more rested.

I hope you have a wonderful, successful day.

Hi Pat - hope the snow didn't cause too much grief yesterday. I worked from home and so to stay in my calorie range was a big plus. Even did my strength exercises, though I missed on cardio.

Wish I had some good advice about the TV, but I don't. Mine is only on for Andy Griffith reruns and ACC basketball, and bedtime is strictly observed - 9:15 to 10PM - since I get up between 5:30 and 6:15.

Hi! I am off to a slow start this morning--which means more sleep. Hope your day is going well.

I tracked my food just fine and got in my fruits and veggies (barely). I think there's a place on the right column of my Spark page where you can actually see my nutrition page.

Sleep---fell asleep on the couch about 10:30, went to bed when Letterman came on. Actually slept without TV till 5:45 or so, then fell back asleep with TV till Dr. Phil came on. Progress??? Have a headache today.

BTW, My first name is Pat, good to meet you, Joan!

Blessings,
Pat

Hi STUDIETWO...do you have a first name. Mine is Joan.

Anyway -

March 1 calories 1713 (the top of my range is 1700)
March 2 calories 1663

So on average I'm below the top!

How cool is that. Remember celebrate success!

I did okay, but not a 100% success. I recalculated my calorie goals for March which moved the top end of the range down by around 100 calories. I was in the old range but missed the new range - 1713 calories instead of 1700. So, I'm thinking I did okay. At least I was close. Guess I should try to stay 13 calories under the top of the range today!

Isn't the snow beautiful?

I don't get the TV thing, maybe because I've never done that. I would think the light would be bothersome. Have you thought about white noise - a fan or even soft music?

Checking in:
Day one I did well on fruit/veggies with 8 servings, mostly fruit, though. I did chart all my food and stayed within the ranges set.

The sleeping without the TV on didn't go so well. Its just so quiet without it. Tonite I will set the sleep button on the tv and let it turn itself off. How did you do?



Blessings,
Pat

Oh, and STUDIETWO, I'm up for posting my results here daily if you want to as well. It helps to have a buddy to chat with.

Short term goals are wonderful and a good way to stay on track. Don't forget to reward yourself for your achievement.

My goal is to stay in my calorie range March 1 through 13th and then again March 21st through the 31st. In the middle of that I'll be at DisneyWorld, and my goal for that week is to make good choices.

For me, long-term goals, like losing a lot of weight, are so far away, they seem impossible. So I set little goals that I can reasonably expect to meet. Mine are:
1. Keep accurate food log on Spark for entire month
2. Eat at least 5 veggie/fruits daily
3. Sleep with TV off for entire month and chart sleep pattern.

What are your goals? Perhaps they will inspire others.

Blessings,
Pat
