Eating Out…

..now that is proving to be challenging.  You would think that I would be able to find something to eat at a Seafood Restaurant.  Nope…nothing that is appealing to me.  It is lunch…I am also not looking to spend 45.00 on some crab legs.  Just saying.

I think a trip to Costco is in my future.  I have a hankering for some crab legs…if I am going to pay 45.00 then I want more than just three. Just saying…

I am looking at the menu right now…Caesar Salad it is…

Good thing I’m not very hungry right now.

Almost…

…broke the 170s.

170.8

🙂

People are starting to notice the difference in the way I look.  My clothes are fitting better now as well.  I am not just focusing on the numbers on the scale…I am also looking at SHRINKING.

The power of positive thinking.  The human mind is a powerful tool.  Envision yourself at your goal…believe that you can achieve it…and trust me it will happen.  As far as I am concerned I am already where I want to be…just maintaining.

Do. Or do not. There is NO try. ~YODA.

 

Triggers…

STRESS!  Definitely one of my triggers.  I get stressed and all I can literally see in my mind is a 20 piece McNugget and a Double Quarter Pounder with Cheese meal…and a large Diet Coke.  We all know that adding a Diet Coke to a “shit” meal will make all food accompanying it have ZERO calories.

Yes.

🙂

So…gues what I am having right now? Yep…stress like crazy.  All I envision is two 10 piece boxes of nuggets and the double quarter pounder with cheese.  This sucks..

Calories…

I absolutely hate to track a calorie.  It takes too much time and effort to figure out just how much I am eating…measure measure measure…track track track.  It seems you become more obsessed with food than you were in the first place.  That is the reason I can’t do Weight Watchers.  I do not think about food constantly.  I eat when I am hungry…then I stop when I feel full.  Once I start tracking every morsel that I put in my mouth…counting disgusting ass calories…it makes me obsessed about it and that is a bad thing for me.

I figure…hell I went over my calorie count for the day so I might as well eat a whole pizza.  It encourages the binge and purge cycle.

Binging and purging is bad…M’kay?

Really bad.

So….I am sticking to the way of eating that seems to fit me.  I eat things that I know are low in carbohydrate.  Stay away from white foods (starches and sugars)…eat big old salads and berries.

No more frankenfoods for me.  That protein bar really did a number on me and my stomach.  I also found myself starving before 11.

I’m gonna weigh myself tomorrow…I feel smaller and my clothes are fitting me better.  I don’t feel dizzy all the time either.  All I want is to be healthy…the side effects will be amazing.

Later!

 

Frankenfoods…

…you know what I mean.  Those protein bars.

YUCK.

Taste like ass.

Every single one of them.  There is an artificial taste to them that I just cannot get out of my mouth.  I think coffee will help the issue.  I have decided that I will just eat eggs in the morning.

YUCK.

Very nasty.  My stomach is upset now.

I’m a sad sad panda.

 

Sugar Busters…

Developed by New Orleans doctors.  One of the first diets that I can remember restricting sugar.  Has anyone just sat down and read the diet book…cover to cover??  I think I will do that this weekend.  Sugar Busters is the only diet I haven’t “tried on” yet. 🙂  Who knows it just might be a good fit.

3rd Day…

…I’m hurting.  Really feeling the muscles today.  They are protesting loudly about being used again.  Serves them right being so lazy and all.  I think I have to start sleeping with Jim’s cousin Benny Gay…or his sister Icy Hottie.  See?  I am not without anyone in my life…LOL.

I want to exercise again today.  Maybe skip the gym and do a home workout??  I could go in and get a nice tan to take away the fluorescent look I am rocking these days.  Just call me “Flo”.  I haven’t been this pale is a long time…I’m my own night-light.

Ok…check into the gym today and get a nice tan…then go to my apartment and do my trusty Taebo Amped.  I am not too proud to realize that I will have to start off on Beginner level.  I just know that I will get back to where I was one step at a time.

21 days makes a habit.  Trust me on that one.  That is the reason I am not wanting to miss any days.  I really need exercise to become a daily habit for me again.  I want to CRAVE it again.  It does a body good.  Start the exercise habit you won’t worry about the scale…the metal monster will be banished.

I am not sure how I will weigh myself.  I am seeing great results from just eating healthy.  I do know I will show a slight gain because I am “Putting some serious on my face” (Billy Blanks…warning y’all…gonna have more than a few Billy rants).

My eating?  Well I am not hungry.  Since I am eating a high protein diet I stay full longer.  I don’t see the sense in making myself eat if I am not wanting any food. I shall see how I will work this out.

:)

I just received a gift certificate and a card of appreciation from one of my landlords.  That really makes me feel good about my job.  It is nice to be appreciated. 🙂 🙂

So…I have been rocking the diet and exercise.  I can feel the difference when I am showering again.  I feel tighter and I am not bloated at all.  Why did I go back to eating carbs?? Well let me show you…

🙂

The gift certificate is for The Hot Bite 🙂

Here is the menu for Hot Bite:

hotbite3hotbite4

I think I can have the salads.  This place has milkshakes…floats…CHEESECAKE MILKSHAKES.  I have a 25.00 gift certificate to eat there.  So far I have located salad, tea,water.

So…Gonna hold on to this gift certificate for a little while.  It will be fun to just walk down there one evening and just listen to the music.  Summertime in Juneau is coming and I do like the fact it stays light until midnight here. 🙂

Even though I pretty much cannot eat anything on the menu…I still appreciate the fact that they took the time to write me a thank you card and buy the certificate.  It will at least give me a reason to walk down the hill and check things out.

🙂

Eating…

I eat for fuel these days.  I have been consistant for the past two weeks.  I finally broke the 180s after a couple of years.  I like when I am seeing a downward trend.  I have cut out the drinking and eatimng all the crap foods that I have been putting into my body.

Eating clean isn’t hard…it all boils down to the decision to do it.  I am glad I didn’t cave and decide to run my tail to McDonalds instead of just eating what I knew I had available in the house.  🙂

178.4.

Yes!

It feels good to see the numbers go down instead of up.

I know that I will start to lose some inches now that I am incorporating exercise into my routine.  I also know that it isn’t uncommon to see a gain at first at the beginning of a fitness routine.  I will just gauge by how my pants are fitting me and how I look in clothes.

Not looking to just get skinny…I am looking to get healthy and add years to my life.

That being said I will be going to visit DJ (Downtown Jim)  during my lunch hours.  Each day I go will help me build up my stamina.  I’m focusing on fat loss right now…the weight training will then just come naturally.

Feeling great right now!

🙂

My New Beau…

Jimmy (The Gym). 🙂

I spent some time with him today and I have to say he was the bastard that I thought he would be.  He showed me that I am out of shape.  He convinced me that quitting the smoking is a good thing.  No more alcohol…lots of water and clean eating.  I do these things and I am sure that The Jim will treat me better. 🙂

The Precor is my machine of choice…always has been.  I like the way it tones the legs and butt.  My journey of 1000 miles began today with the first step…45 minutes on the Precor.  I really forgot how good I am with working through the pain and fatigue.

Time to make some changes…I knew that I would finally click.

🙂

Wearing a bun to work tomorrow and bringing in my workout clothes…going to visit Jim’s twin brother Downtown Jim at lunch tomorrow.  It feels good to do something for me for a change.

High blood pressure. Menopausal. Diabetes….

I can do this. And look good too.

Later!
