Proud of me!

Tuesday, August 05, 2014

Today I tracked all my food and exercise AND was within all my nutrient ranges for EVERYTHING!!! Okay, I was a bit low on calories...but I'm willing to overlook that because it's not by much and it's still a healthy level. Small victories are still victories. emoticon

    I'm afraid I don't have one...this was a total fluke. Tracking in the middle of the day I decided a needed a lighter dinner, and things fell into place. emoticon

Hamster wheel brain

Things that are bad for me and things that are good for me...can't seem to get them straight.

My dentist gave me a night guard so I would quit biting the inside of my cheeks at night, now I'm doing it during the day. What's with that?

I got two new Wii games to workout with, played one for 3 minutes, the other isn't actually active. Took me 15 minutes to figure that out, though.

Healthy lunches followed by happy hour dinners. Margaritas are made with limes, but don't really count as fruit. Right?

How did I break a press on nail?

Yard work! Yeah! at 1:30 in the Texas summer afternoon...bad idea...

Now how do I stop the cat from licking electrical cords?

2:00 am, good time to start a workout?

Is running away from home really an escape when you live alone?

  


I'm sweating and I like it (sorta)

Saturday, August 27, 2011

Middle of a heat wave, middle of a drought, and my A/C decides to go out. Loverly! Not just go out, the whole thing decides to shatter and splinter so it all has to be replaced. But not until tomorrow. emoticon

So last night I took my frozen hot water bottle to bed, slept okay - the house actually only got up to about 90 last night. Today it was up to 95. Honestly, it's cooler outside! And the windows are open!

Odd choice ... I decided to work out tonight, in the heat, at a strenuous level. Really? 95 degrees and THAT'S the best time to start doing MORE to make myself sweat? emoticon

Even odder, I liked it. Hmmm, never really thought of myself as a masochist.

  


Something's not right here.

Friday, August 19, 2011

For health reasons my cats are on a canned food diet. Yes, my cats and I are all on a new healthy lifestyle kick. But, wait! Tonight I noticed that something is off. I'm having a lovely peanut butter half sandwich for dinner - and my cat is having shrimp.

What??? Where did my grocery shopping go wrong? To be fair, she's an old lady and has decided (after 3 food changes) to be picky. At least she'll eat the shrimp cold, because she only eats about 1/2 what she should and I have to refrigerate the rest of the can. The things we do for our pets.

Even worse, I have shrimp for me in the freezer - it's to go on a lovely pasta dish that I have planned. Just haven't gotten up the gumption to cook it. Ah, well. Maybe this weekend.

Good plans laid, Bad choices made

Tuesday, August 16, 2011

Plan: eat a good, nutritious salad with smoked turkey.

Thought: leftover pizza. No! Salad! Piiiizza. No! Salad!!

Doorbell rang, and there was a pizza delivery guy offering me two deep dish pizzas. I was good and sent him away (hope he found who really ordered them).

Choice: Took delivery guy as a sign and ate my leftover pizza, no salad. Then I had a cookie. Another cookie. Another... Now I want candy.

Good news: I'm not going to have the candy, and tomorrow will be filled with much healthier food choices.
