Don't know what's different this time around...

But e/thing's going well.  I think it's because I've stuck to few meals and few snacks.  Not that I didn't have either of one, but I stuck to the same recipes.  Fish, brown rice, lettuce, frozen veggies, frozen fruit, yogurt, milk... blah blah.  I haven't felt deprived and I honestly feel better than all this time trying to reach my goal weight.  I don't have one anymore, I don't know if that's bad. 

I have also decided today's the last day I'm having fish for a long while,…

I made the mistake this week of taking the word of a waittress that a salad dressing was low fat. Once I actually got around to looking it up the tiny little container of dressing was over 7 points plus; that just about ruined my whole day - at least I still had some of my extra points left.  It just goes to show you that you have to be diligent in your efforts for adopting a healthly lifestyle.


If anybody reading my blog has any ideas about a low cal protien; let me know. I…

Not Quite A "Winning" Day

It's been quite a stressful week at work most especially today because we are at month end and our Director of Finance decided I would be the one who has to stay at work tonight and close the month in our accounting cycle.  Clearly I am doing a great job working hard at it.  LOL.

I did give in to some emotional eats today ~  a small Hawaiian pizza and a 20 ounce Coke ~ ooohhh the juice.  It's the devil I tell you.  The devil.

Here's hoping tonight will end…

My Trip to NY

My hubby's company paid for me to come visit him over the Thanksgiving holiday and it was great! I was completely exhausted when I got back home on Monday night. But it was totally worth it! It was my first trip to NYC and we did all the tourist-y things you can do. Minus the Rockefeller Tree; I missed that since I didn't stay through Wednesday.

My eating hasn't been great but hasn't been bad. We ate out the whole time during my visit, but I made some decent choices and didn't…

Soda challenge

Well I accepted dr. Oz 28 day soda challenge. I have already done half of the challenge by switching to diet soda and cutting how much I drink i in half, however I now have to give it up completely which is going to be the hard part. So in order to do that I made sure to have my favorite coffee and peppermint coffee creamer on hand to go to when I need a boost. And I am proud to say that I am down 2.5 pds this week. Have a good day everyone.

Finding Nemo

I walk by my fish tank and my fish are following me with their eyes. They do this normally but this time it was like persistent. I then realized that these fish clogged up my filter. Yes the hubby cleaned out the 10 gallon tank on MONDAY but now it is not working! The hubby said they probably clogged up the filter...say what?

Look we know they probably want a bigger tank because they are growing like weeds. (note to hubby - when I say go get A fish, DO NOT come back with 4!!) This has…

Reality Check

Well, I thought I was doing pretty good, I'm 10 miles short of my goal to walk 50 miles 11/1-12/1, I thought I was eating better but in reality know I'm not doing my best.   Monday I went in for a physical (my first since 9/2010) - low and behold I'm up 7 pounds since the last week of September and got the results back today, my cholesterol is 257 - it was in the 180s in 2010.  Not sure if I'm that neglectful, is it age (I'm 48 closing in on 49 in Feb) I just feel like I've totally let…

Time for change?

After finally dropping a pound last week, its been kind of stressful. Many contributing factors. My mother has started hospice since the cancer appears to be winning. The Dr finally told her she will not get better so she stopped chemo & is home. It could be today, next week, next month....who knows. I've prayed and prayed. Finally I talked to GOD and said if he could not make her well, do not let her suffer. I do not want her to go, but GOD has a plan.  She is pain free, but feels like…

day 1 on WW points plus= success!

I can't even tell you how good it feels to be able to stay on plan. I have been doing the old WW program for so long, and I felt so hungry on it! I am giving the new program a shot (I bought all the materials when I was an online subscriber 2 years ago and they had just introduced the program). I have tried it in the past and didn't like the inconvenience of finding out the new values of everything, it was too much work for me. Yesterday I decided to give it a real chance. I like the way it…

Three Strong

Yup.  Three strong days of getting back on track.  It's actually been pretty easy to do this time, which is strange.  Maybe what everyone says is true.  When you're ready it works.  Here's hoping it sticks!

I've been off the juice since Sunday night.  Today I'm feeling a little headachey.  I'm wondering if it has to do with caffeine withdrawals.  Any thoughts?

My Cancer Scare update

Well sorry it's taken so long to give everyone an update. Test results take forever!! Any who I'm thrilled to report The large lump on my leg is NOT Cancer, it's not even a Tumor ( what 2 different Doctors told me it was). I had an MRI done and they said it was an injury. My Muscle tissue is injured and very swollen and the Fat tissue around it liquified in spots and that caused it to look deformed. It's just so weird it never hurt. My Doctor said I probably bumped into something hard, that… Continue

Nutrition books

Woo hoo! I am so excited that my books came in last night! I am taking two nutrition classes this term and I am so excited for them. Last term I had to take math and English and hated every moment so I can't wait to get started with something I love!! My boys will probably hate it because I will surely be bringing even more healthy foods in the house. Hopefully some day they will appreciate it :)

I am still staying on track with my workouts. Yesterday I had too much work to get caught…

Mad at myself

DAMMITTT!!!! Well, today is the first day of the conference and so far it has gone great. I did well eating all day but when dinner came I really screwed up. I don't even know why. I wasn't that hungry but I think I was uncomfortable because the entire conference is in Spanish and everyone was speaking Spanish all over the place and I felt a little outta place. I don't know if that's it but eating gave me something to do while nobody was talking to me. lol  I did go and check out the fitness…

MY 52 WEEK CHALLENGE (week 10)


My challenge – My biggest challenge was not to taste the food as I prepare Thanksgiving Dinner, I had 5 tasters/helpers and few more when I made the deserts. I found my hands going toward my mouth.

The positive – Dinner with the whole family was great, all I did was apply portion control and use a small plate and pass on the…

It was okay

I woke up this morning to work out; I have now developed this habit (yippee). Honestly, I did not feel like it but I still got up. After reading and drinking my lemon water, I was still not in the mood. I decided to put on my workout and do it anyway. Sometimes if I start doing it, I immediately perk up. This time however, my mind was complaining the whole time and I couldn't quiet it down.I mean I knew it was not going to happen. I stopped and still felt restless; like unaccomplished. So I…

Oook, this post gets published no matter what.

I wrote a lengthy (emotional) post last night and didn't publish it after previewing it.  I know, I gotta let those words out and blah blah.  So this one goes up, no matter what.

I've lost 2 of the 4-6 lbs I'd gained in the past 5 months while I wasn't running or giving a crap about food.  I don't know why it's either always easy to work out OR eat healthy.  I can't seem to get both under control.  I'm not bitching, it's just a question.  Maybe if I can find out why I…

Two In A Row!!!

That's right.  Two awesome days of blogging, eating healthy (no take out), drinking my water (still no "JUICE"), and tracking.  It feels so good to do things this way.  Why is it so easy to give up on it when the going gets a little rough?

Going to need to figure out how to work the exercise into the routine.

I'm not up and at em as early as I used to be, and nights are a no way hosay!

Wednesday weigh in with Roni

I loved what Roni had to say today. She is right- there is always something, always a special dinner or event or holiday coming, getting in the way of reaching goals. I am focusing on making healthy choices no matter where I am or how many options there are. It is just a way of life for me. It has to be, there is no other option.  Eat crap= feel like crap. I know it and own it. Today I…

Time to embrace

Ok I haven't been the best to myself or those around me. But sitting here tonight being upset over my broken dishwasher and beating myselfmupmover the m&m's I ate today I was pulled into a movie about a family who lost their home and their son need a heart transplant then the Red Cross commercial came on asking for help and I couldn't help but start to cry and really think. I have so much to embrace in my life and I'm beating myself up over food. I am lucky to have my home, my health,food… Continue

Time to stop

The national conference that I've been dealing with for the past months finally starts tomorrow. I won't even go into details. Let's just say that it's done and I'm going on the trip tomorrow and that's that. I will be so glad when first this semester is finished and then next semester/year is finished. 

I ate really well at work today. I ended up staying at work until almost 8pm to get everything done and when I walked through the door I headed straight for the fridge. I dug into…
