I did. I keep forgetting to update. So, I'm still trying the leptin reset deal. I goofed up a bit this morning because I thought I had more time before my Crossfit on ramp class. Breakfast still tasted pretty awesome ;)
I think maybe I should keep a paper journal so I can keep track on here. The not snacking thing has been doing me some good at work. I can skip my first break if need be, but I usually read or do crosswords.
The Crossfit On Ramp classes have been fun so far! This morning was my last one. When I got there, some of the coaches, male ones, were shirtless and doing some of their own workout before the gym was opened for regular classes. Yep, found my motivation! Jeeze, the muscles on these guys! However, that was 50% of my motivation. The other 50% was seeing one of my female coaches hanging in there with the guys. Now that is just plain old kick ass!
I'm singing the National Anthem at the local roller derby game tonight! It's time for me to get dinner started :)
How neat that you are singing the anthem! I can't sing, nevertheless, that is one thing I would love to do, as a fantasy. I would do all four verses, 'cause I am an anthem geek. :)
Man, I am really struggling to keep this up to date lately! Lol, it's not that I don't have the time. I play on the net in the evenings. I wonder what's really going on here.
While I've been trying reset my leptin, it's not working in the aspect that I have a hard time not working out. Part of that is due to the fact that I dedicated money to start Crossfit and I don't like the idea of paying for it and not using it. The class has been good for me so far. So, giving up the exercising isn't going to happen. I'm only going three times a week and I plan to keep it that way. I do like the eating almost as soon as I get up part and making time to be mindful in the morning. The mindful part for me is time in meditation with God before I take off for the day. What I will take away from it is that I need to not snack (unless I have good reason to). Eating all that protein in the morning is definitely making it easier for me to not snack until it's lunch time. It's also forcing me to realize that I've been eating when I'm not all that hungry. Well, lesson learned, right?
Oh yeah, I tried making mayo with coconut oil. Uhm, not the best idea in the world! Oh well!
I've had good luck with light olive oil for mayo. Siobhan just tried sunflower oil with good results too.
I think snacking is a good habit to break. Not that I'm against it when we are hungry, or occasionally (key word) for social reasons, but just out of habit, not so good. When I do snack, I try to adjust my eating for the rest of the day. Or have two snacks instead of one meal. I try not to get anal or legalistic about this. I just aim to keep my eating reasonable and flexible.
Hey Beautiful! Where've you been hiding?
Work, school starting, and church. Sort of trying to back off my use of the net, but it's not working so greatly. I did start a new position at work. Phew! I've got to be walking somewhere close to about 2 miles a day at work going back and forth to answer stuff. The good news is that the job is keeping me busy, so I don't have too much time to get into trouble.
I also discovered a way to make some homemade chocolate candies with coconut oil, coconut sugar, vanilla, and whatever nuts I have in the fridge.
Hey there. Good to see you.
Welcome back. :)
Alessandra's version of Judg Fudge, eh? Have you tried stevia in there? (The stuff from a bottle, not the packets with the additives.)
