off day...

weigh in 202.6

Yesterday was an off day. Maybe it was because day after TOm or daylight savings? I dont know but it was an off day. I felt weird and tired all day. I was hungry all day to. I was on plan till about 630-7pm last night. I was really hungry so I decided to get a snack after all i had a little over 100cals left.  So i got some pirates booty and a fruit rollup. Well that didnt fill me up. An hour later i ended up getting some chicken, beans, and rice.  I only got a little bit just enough to make me satisfied. Then I reviewed my nutrition for the day! My carbs were pretty high like 100 and my protein was sitting at like 14 for the day! no wonder i was so hungry! I didnt really even eat balanced yesterday lol. So today is a new day and hopefully a balanced one.  I didnt go to the gym yesterday.  Even though I should have. I hadnt planned on going because I had school and a meeting to go to right after. Before i went to school the meeting got cancelled so i decided oh ook gym time today, cool.  Well I did my quiz in class and did good.  Then during lecture I felt so tired I literally fell asleep in class. Then at break I decided I wasnt staying the rest of class. Also while driving out of the campus parking lot decided not to go work out. 
          Yesterday is gone and all I can do is learn from it. Today I will stay on plan and stay balanced. I will go to the gym and do my work out. :)

    Day 3 - mini restart

    Weigh in 203.0

       Woohoo last night i went to the gym!!! I was terrified.  There were a few reasons I was so fearful and nervous.  I hadnt been in like 6 months. I was thinking the whole time what if i cant even walk for 20min? I was afraid of a new gym to. I had gotten so comfy at LA Fitness.  I found out last night I really like 24Hour Fitness alot better. : ) 
            So what did I do at the gym?  I did the elyptical and the treadmill.  I did the treadmill at an average speed of three with an incline of 1.0 for about 18:00 min.  My goal on the treadmill was a mile and I did it.  Then on the elyptical I did about 10-12min.  My goal was also 1.0 mile on the elyptical and I did it!  So last night I did 2miles of training! :) tonight im gonna try for more. :)
             I stayed completly on plan yesterday no overage at all!!!!

    Todays goals:

    First Goal:  Stay on plan no matter what. Do it to the best of your ability.
    Second Goal: Go to gym. Try to do better than yesterday. :)
    Third Goal: Stay humble.

    13. Enjoy!

    Would anyone like to know the aproximate calories for each of these lovely little omelet cupcakes?
    But how do you determine the calories?

    1. take each of your ingredients and see how many calories each has.-

    1 roma tomato- 22 cals
    1/2 yellow onion- 43cals
    1 avocado- 322cals
    4 cloves of garlic- 18cals
    1 green Bell Pepper- 24cals
    6 Large eggs- 407cals
    2.5 ounces Cheddar Cheese- 171cals
    Turkey/Chicken deli sliced meat- (11shaved slices) 120cals

    *Note- Meat and cheese cals will vary depending on wich you get.

    2. Take the total of all the ingredients.-


    3. Divide the total by the number quantity that your batch produced.

    My batch produced qty.11

    So 1127/11= 102.45

    4. Calorie amount for this batch.

    Aproximately 103cals per Omelet Cupcake! :) Dig In~!

    Mini Restart- Who's with me?

    weigh in 204.6

             Some of you may have noticed that I haven't been sticking to plan all that well.  I have found it so hard to stay on plan since the holidays.  I have posted as if I am doing great and been in denial a lot of the time. Today I am proclaiming a mini-restart.  I am going to pledge to be honest with you which will in turn allow me to be honest with myself.  It is so hard for me to look at this knowing how good i was doing, but I need to face it.  I have reached my mini goal of 50lbs lost.  Which is great but honestly it should have blown by a month or two ago.  I started 2012 off at 210. and now in the 3rd month of the year I am at 204.6 and its all my doing. At first I was blaming it on my metabolism slowing or maybe calorie counting wasn't working but, that was pure denial.  Calorie counting works no matter what.  Sometimes it needs to be changed up a bit but for me it was denial and cheating.  So today I'm coming clean and starting new.  I will be making an honest effort to stay true and to not allow myself to fall back into denial because we know its so easy. Here we go, my truth list.

    Truth one: I went over by a bit last night. only by less then 100 Cal's but it was still a cheat. I'm going to try so hard tonight not to go over and fight the urge.  Evenings are the hardest times for me and I need to remember to stay aware of that.

    Truth two:  Its time for me to get back to the gym. Tonight after work and therapy I will be going to take a look at 24hour Fitness and seeing how much a gym membership is.  Its time to get in shape and be good about my fitness.

    Truth three:  I need to stick to my caloric intake amount allotted to me.  Not even 1 calorie over is OK for me right now. I need to think of that limit line like a barbwire fence and stay right next to it but never touch it or try to climb over it.

    Truth four:  No matter what happens tonight, I will be back here tomorrow to tell you how it goes and how I did. No sugar coating allowed!.

    Have a wonderful day and wish me luck! I find lists help me alot! Try it out and see if it suits you to. :)
