Last Tuesday made 7 weeks since I started eating Healthy.
I read EVERYTHING.
NO Saturated Fat
NO Trans Fat
I do eat a little bit of Cholesterol.
I have chicken breast grilled in my
George Foreman and there's some in that.
I snack sometimes on lean oven-roasted deli turkey meat.
and I have Fish. Tuna, Salmon and filet's of some sort.
I forget what kind
but the cholesterol was low.
I read the cereal boxes and eat things like Shredded Wheat with fresh
I snack on rice cakes, pretzels and prunes.
I LOVE prunes. I know that it's the sugar from them that I'm craving but
they have become my ice cream, my chocolate chip cookies.
and Fat Free Fig
I roast brussel sprouts with mushrooms, I microwave sweet potatoes.
I eat light Progresso soup for lunch or a can of beans.
I'm not walking much after work but I will work on that. I'm thinking that
maybe I just need to do it very early in the morning. Get it over with and out
of the way.
Early, when it's quiet, when there's not a lot of other people out
walking. And of course it would be easier to walk Blue then.
Less dogs to
encounter, less people who feel like they need to cross the street in fear and
less kids who run full force at him.
I got one of those pedometers to wear at work.
I read that I need to walk
at least 10,000 steps a day.
The first day that I forgot to put it on until I had been at work for an
hour, but by the end of the work day I had walked just under 15,000 steps.
So I'm feeling a whole lot better.
No more nausea, dizziness. No more aching all over.
I have so much more energy and while I'm doing this for my health and so
that I don't die soon,
I'm also doing it to get my weight down.
The first week I lost 8 lbs. The next week 3 more, bringing it to 11.
The week after that the scale teetered between a 12 and 13 lb loss. and the
next week a firm 14.
14, it stayed there for a couple of weeks and FINALLY it's 16.
16 in 7 weeks and I haven't cheated once.
How can I cheat?
I'm not on a diet. I'm just trying not to DIE.
Then I worked all that overtime and didn't get enough sleep.
I didn't take care of myself.
I tried to rest on Sunday and I did sort of.
Just cleaned the house a
little and caught up laundry.
Then it's been back to craziness at work again.
I truly think that if I hadn't been so careful with my food intake,
have crashed and burned.
I just have to get the rest of my fence put up this weekend and lay those
paving squares and spray the bottom of the ravine with brush killer and cut the
limbs up for the garbage pick-up and then I will really rest.
and start painting!
I have SO many ideas and techniques I want to try.
