Final Day - Day 14

Saturday, November 15, 2014

I will continue to eat this way until we head out on the road. DH and I are planning to fill a cooler (thanks for the idea SIMPLELIFE4REAL) and skip all the fast food places we usually stop to eat. This will save my waist line and time.

I did not loose any pounds but I did gain 2.25 inches of muscle in my thighs and I lost another inch around my waist and hips! My doctor once told me "If you loose just 1 inch around the waist [where the vital organs of the body are located], it's like loosing 10 pounds for your body!" I love my doctor.

OKAY!!! IT IS HAPPY DANCE TIME. LET'S MOVE!!!!

Until later...... emoticon

    It made SUCH a big difference that I insisted on bringing breakfast and snacks along on our trip to Yosemite last month. We saved hundreds of dollars and calories!

    That is great about the shift to muscle! Good for you. Thanks for the shoutout. A cooler does help while travelling.

Day 13

Friday, November 14, 2014

This experiment is coming to an end. I want to thank everyone who has followed me and given me cheers and strength. It means a lot to me. This day was fantastic! I had a great workout (90 minutes) and a wonderful meditation class. I did (or felt I could not) not eat all that I was suppose to and it came back to bite me!

I wasn't paying attention to the time (and I didn't feel hungry) and all of the sudden it was time to leave for work. I was suppose to eat my big protein meal at this time. At dinner I found I was still hungry after eating my meal. It is amazing what a simply apple can do for you emoticon I was thrilled that I managed to stay true to my eating. Tomorrow is weigh-in and measurement day. Keep your fingers crossed!

Until later.... emoticon

Day 12

Thursday, November 13, 2014

Today was a busy day. I slept in until 9 a.m. What a treat! I then got up and quickly got ready for my knitting group. Though I have knitted in the past, I am truly just a person who crochets. They let me stay in the group even if it is called "Nice Knitters". I am working on an afghan and a couple of washcloths. I will take the projects on the road when we travel for Thanksgiving.

I did manage to eat very well yesterday. I found it to be easier and I am now looking forward to the small but often meals. I only did an ab workout on this day because I did over two hours of hard workout the day before. My body was screaming for a day off so I decided to listen to it.

By the way, NO! I did not win any money at bingo but I sure did have a good time.

Until later..... emoticon

Day 11

Wednesday, November 12, 2014

I didn't abide exactly by the plan today. I went to Bingo and, well, I had a piece of cake. THERE I TOLD ON MYSELF! I have to admit that I actually felt a little dizzy - like my brain was fuzzy. The appeal and the pleasure of "cheating" did not last. Nor will I allow any guilt to affect me!

Today is a new day and a better day for me to take care of Self! YEE HAW!!

Until later...... emoticon

    The funny thing about cake (and most indulgences) is that it really is the first bite that fulfills all the want. The rest can pretty much go to the birds!

Day 10

Tuesday, November 11, 2014

This day went well. I ate how I should and it actually felt normal. DH and I plan to do this eating behavioral program until we head out on our Thanksgiving trip on 11/19. So about 9 more days. We will drive to TX to visit a friend and then drive all along the coast down to Naples, FL, to have turkey with the MIL.
It will not be possible to conintue eating like this in the car but we do plan to pack healthy things to eat.

Yesterday while I was teaching my afternoon yoga class, I glanced into the mirror (I know, not suppose to look!) and I actually noticed a change in my body. It was nice to be able to see the difference. Now all I want is to see more!!!

Well, I am off to the gym and looking forward to it. That's the main difference from eating in the fashion - I have energy and motivation! That right there makes it worth it!

Until later.... emoticon

    Wow! You have a huge drive in front of you. I hope you have good weather and can enjoy things along the way. The nice thing about going in a car and having a cooler is that you can stop and get healthy foods along the way. I didn't gain any weight while on our month-long vacation because we were able to better control what we ate on the road by stopping in grocery stores every few days.
