2 week mini goal set 1/22/13

Day 14

Woo hoo I did it! 14 days on plan! Well pretty much. I was a little over calories Friday and yesterday. But I am gonna go ahead and pat myself on the back! One of the things I forget most and can throw me off track completly is thinking I am perfect. Perfection is a disease that can kill from the inside out. I love me so I dont want to pleague myself with perfection. They very small overages wich total to 100 cals over for the week. So I am going to be happy in my triumph! :)

A few reminders for myself.

I can do it if I choose to. I am the biggest obstacle in my way. :)

Day 11 restart and counting...

Day 11

I got a little bit side tracked last night. I went over by about 30-50 cals. This is not the end.  Im not gonna act like its the end of the world either. Im actually patting myself on the back for an accomplishment and seeing actual growth in myself! I have been having "aunt flow" cravings all week! Last night, I finally gave in with one of those tiny cookie dough ice creams from dreyers. I ate it slowly and  enjoyed each bight but, what do you know half way through I was done. I really just wanted a little bit of something sweet how crazy is that. Was that me? I only ate half? Since when does that happen? lol But im doing good. Day 11 and just for today i want to choose to eat healthy and be a little better healthier me. We all have our moments right and that moment showed me growth. Lets just not over analyse it either. :) One more week and school starts Woohoo! I also had some delicous baked salmon with potatos and onions. It was delicous as well. :)

Getting back on the Health Wagon.

Well it happened. I fell off the wagon completly. In about 6months i have gained around 15lbs back.  I am back and I pray I am ready to start this up again. I had a stunning realization this morning when my pants would not zip! They are getting to small. (of course I forced)  I dont want to have to force it. I started eating healthy May 2011 because I wanted to be healthy and I wanted to feel healthy. I wanted to gain confidence and self esteem and feel beautiful. Through it all my Fiance' and family have been supportive.  But its time for me to get back on it. So Godwilling Im back and Im gonna do this tomorrow I will be weighing in, in the morning and I will be planning my day in food and excercizing at least 15min.

Also today I will be making an appointment with my doctor to prescribe me excercize and then I can pay for my membership with untaxed money. : ) Wich will affectivly save me 20-25% on gym bills.  : ) I am going to make an appointment with a nutritionist when I see my doctor as well.

Oranges and there Benefits.

Weigh in 201
Had a great time with my brother and family. Happy Birthday to him. For his birthday he is off to Texas. If anyone would like to say a prayer for a safe trip be my guest.  My mom made green Chile cheese enchiladas. Which is one of my favorite meals that she makes! yum yum!
Today is a good day but i believe I'm getting my tooth pulled today. I will be eating light because I don't want to throw up from the anesthetic. I have my food plan for the day and some wiggle room for anything that may arise.

I have been craving oranges like crazy for the last few days! So I decided to do a little research.  What are the benefits of oranges?

One orange is rich in Vitamin C but, most of us know that. what does Vitamin C actually do? The vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant which boost the immune system. Vitamin C also helps the body to fight against infections.   I have always heard that Oranges are immune system boosters but, it was nice to find out that they also have compounds in them that are anti-inflammatory agents. Other than Vitamin C there are many other nutrients within an Orange such as; pectin, bile acids, Hesperetin, Narigenin, and many other Vitamins.  They have been known to lower blood pressure and cholesterol.  They are rich in dietary fiber and low in calories.  Pectin helps to protect the mucous membrane of the colon from exposure to toxins and will bind with cancer causing cells in the colon. Pectin has also shown to be an active blood cholesterol reducer.  It also contains Phytochemicals call Hesperetin and Narigenin which are flavanoids. The compounds are immune system boosters, and have anti-inflammatory characteristics as well. They also have Vitamin A which helps to maintain a healthy mucous membrane and helps the body to protect itself from lung and oral cavity cancers!  Oranges are also a good source of Vitamin B complex.  It also has other great minerals that our bodies need to function like potassium and calcium. Potassium is a part of cells and body fluids.  It helps to control heart rate and blood pressure.  
Overall they have been know to help in reduce risk for cancers, many chronic diseases, arthritis, obesity, and coronary heart disease.

Feeling pressure need to focus on today...

weigh in 200.6

  I weighed in this morning at 200.6. Hold on Jessica breathe, breathe, breathe.  I know its not a big deal weight fluctuates but its hard to keep that in my head.  Yesterday I was 200.0 now 200.6.  I also know that the last 2-3months I have been yoyoing up and down from 202-200 so what do I expect. I'm on plan of course but of course my body got used to the yo yo a bit. I just have to deal. Stay on plan that's the most important part.  I just need to focus on today. Today is what I have to work with.  Today is what counts.
    I had a great day yesterday!  I got to see my mom and spend time with her at her new place.  It was very nice. I'm really grateful to God I got that opportunity.  My mom and I don't always see eye to eye and we don't get to spend much time together either. It was very nice. :)
    Today I have mapped our my plan for food. I like snacks so a lot of my plan will be eaten individually not in one big meal. Or three meals. But like 6 tiny meals. :) I also have left about 300 Cal's unaccounted for so that I have some wiggle room. :)  My goal for today is to stay within my calories. Therefore staying on my plan. 

Have a great day!
