Well today was a fantastic day. Did my lift heavy things today for 20 minutes, this was the first time I didn't rely on P90X to do any sort of weight training I just did pushups, pullups, wallsquats, prison pushups, and mind you they were real pushups, I have graduated from the girly ones!! so proud of myself for that, now I just have to work on getting lower. chair dips, squats and I was done, 20 minutes...felt a twinge guilty that it didn't go on for an hour LOL. But it was nice not to be a slave.
I IF'd this morning then around noon I had my first bacan fat omelete with fried mushrooms and onions in it and a fresh tomato. Then around 7pm tonight I ate the Bison Primal Chili minus the Bison, I had ground turkey but I cooked it in the bacon fat to fatten it up and that was sooo yummy, I think that will be lunch again tomorrow. The recipe even got a 2 thumbs up from my almost 4 year old...He love the "smashed meatballs" as he called it LOL
All in all was a good day, had a great time with my kids and I love love love that I get to be home with them!! It has been the hardest job I ever had but the most rewarding.
OK so the weight has been bobbing up and down and I am going to ride it out and not worry Yesterday was a busy day did food shopping got some great deals on a pork shoulder...mmm. We ate the bison chili again for dinner last night and for lunch I had 2 eggs over easy with a lot of bacon and a sliced tomato.
Today didn't eat until 4:30 pm....wasn't hungry this morning and then had 2 cavities filled around lunchtime which pretty much shot eating anything till after 3pm between the novicane etc. I actually really even wasn't hungry much today but I made the sausage stew and that was yummy yummy. The husband ate 3 bowls of it. Tomorrow I am supposed to be going to my aunt's house for lunch...my first lunch out since doing primal...she is making beef stew... I think I will be good, just eat the meat and veggies....maybe some of the potatoes and leave the gravy behind.
I liked the WOW this week....thought about actually trying it... 1/4 of my body weight equals the weight of one of my children, may have to carry them for a mile around the neighborhood LOL. Actually our town Halloween parade is Thursday maybe I will carry him for the whole parade that is easily a mile and I know he won't walk the whole thing anyway.....we will see how I am feeling at that point.
Just think of how awesome this not only is for you, but also for your dear children! Keep it up!
You are so right!! Thanks Rio
Well today we spent a lot of time traveling blah!! I sat a lot, then when I got home i got on the eliptical for about a 1/2 hour. Ate an apple and macadamia nuts very early in the morning on the road, lunch I had some beef stew and dinner, salmon with 2 slices of bacon and an egg. I hate eating late but didn't have much a choice and didn't think I would make it till the morning before I could eat again. Now it is time to work on the clown costume for the halloween parade.
Yesterday I was feeling like crap, got the good old period for the first time since August and this one wasn't induced by meds so I was feeling pretty good that it came on it's own, but of course it never "feels" good to have it. That might explain the weight bobbing this past week and also I had no cravings or desire to stuff my face, like I normally would when being faced with the good old period. Yesterday I wasn't hungry and I was in a lot of pain, the only thing I ate was a bowl of chicken soup, not a banner eating day again.
Today has been much better, not as much pain, have my appetite back and I even managed to excercise despite my lack of desire of doing that lately. I had a big salad with caesar dressing and a bowl of primal chili. Dinner is roast chicken if I feel like eating or have time, again we will be running around tonight. The boys are in the Halloween Parade tonight so we have a nice 2 mile walk ahead of us.
Was getting a bit discouraged by the weight again, so I measured myself and yup I am down again in measurement...I will try to change and not worry about the stupid number on that scale, it is like the scale is god.....was I good today or bad today oh great scale do tell? GRRRR!!! I should be very excited that my clothes are all getting too big and I will probably kick myself after rereading it about how stupid I am being about the great god scale.
Been crazy busy lately not much time to update the journal. Started logging my food in for a couple of days on fitday to see what I am doing wrong, seems as though I have stopped losing and even gained weight this week. So far I have been 70/20/10 fat/pr/carb. I think it may be fruit that is doing me in, I am not having any dairy oh and nuts... I haven't had a problem with nuts until lately. So I will see what is what for a week or so and get it back under control.
I love hearing my husband talk about PB to his family on the phone...he is totally excited about it. He is talking about it now. LOL
Well I updated the blog tonight too..so it was a productive day. Off to an early bedtime tonight...I stayed up too late last night doing scrapbooking...a new found obsession LOL. I think I slept 4 hours last night...one of the boys got up sick in the middle of the night and that pretty much did it for me to be up for the last 2 hours of my sleep.
down to 201 this morning ....rock on!! I had ice cream cake last night for the first time in over a month all was good. My husband and kids did a little birthday celebration ahead of time last night for me, hence the cake, some homemade cards and some kitchen fun stuff. Feeling good today, had a big salad with tuna on it for lunch, dinner is primal chili. Keeping track of the food in fitday and it looks like I am doing alright with keeping carbs under 100, yesterday was the first day I hit 110, but it was a special occasion. Happy that my body moved past its funk.
Yesterday was a great day, got a lot of things done around the house, got my walking in and even did the WOW. My kids I thought would find it funny to see me crawling around the house, but they didn't seem to notice...oh well, might have to try it again tomorrow to see if they will join me. I had not so primal chili for dinner last night :s It had one can of white kidney beans in there, that was the only no no but it tasted great.
Today stepped on that contraption called the scale and it smiled at me with a big 200.............. 2 more down and 1 more to go to get out of this God forsaken 200 curse that I have been in for too many years. I was very excited to put shorts on today since it is like 74 in PA in October and was also very happy to know that I officially can't keep them up. These were the shorts that were tight, tight tight back in June. That makes it 25lbs down since the beginning of summer. I hope that when I pull these summer clothes out next year that I can bag them all up to good will .
Well I turned 37 yesterday and well it felt like any other day, of course I went into this birthday much lighter than last Can't complain about that now can we. Yesterday I mowed the lawn for excercise, moving slowly, I wore the Heart rate monitor and burned almost 600 calories from pushing that beast around the yard. Today I am taking the kids to Bounce U as a surprise birthday gift to my youngest who will be 4 in a few days. I will for sure be bouncing around with them...I love that place.
Trying to keep up on the food journal on fitday. I have been keeping the calories under what I burn by about 700- 1000 and trying to keep % 60/20/20, that has been successful for now.
Looked at some PCOS stuff online today and am beginning to realize I think I eat too much fruit. I am going to try to keep my carbs under or around 50g and see what happens. I think the reason why I have been more hungry lately is the stupid apple chips and dried apricots. I really love them,but I think they are the cause for my cravings as of late. thankfully they are out of the house now. I am not going to buy dried fruit and if I do for the kids it is off limits to me. The later half of the day I have been having a rough time, I am extremely tired today and dealing with some bad behaviors in the kids has compounded my attitude as well. Maybe I just need a mental health night and get in the PJ's early and read a little once the kidlets are off to bed. Tomorrow we need to get out of this house for a bit, I think some retail therapy is in order.
