Weight: 179.0

Ive been doing so so, not good enough.

I have been eating all the healthy stuff i got at the farmer's market on sunday, but today i had a burger for lunch and even though i took off the bacon and the top of the bread, it was still fatty and i had some of the fries. I ate some kind of sweet also I was given in argentina and had here. Argh.

I'll have a healthy dinner and jump up and down for 2 hours at this show im going to see tonight!

Oh, last night I started the belly dancing class. it's good to be back at doing something. I'll see if I can go to another dance class once a week and a yoga class. that will make it 3 times and i am okay with that.

xoxo

That looks yummy... :)

Salmon and shrimp ceviche (the shrimp you have to boil quickly before marinating on the lime, onions and tomatoes, the salmon you just put in the marinate raw), with avocado, edamame and corn on the side. Delicious and healthy!


Horn_Of_Plenty on 09/30/2009:
grumpy grumps! That meal looks REALLY good. It is my kind of healthy, tasty and delicious! My body is yearning for something like that right now, even after eating 5,000 if not more calories! oops.

anyways, it seems i haven't even realized until yesterday that you've been posting often and somehow i missed all your pictures on here.

i really like that pic of you on Sept 26. your hair got pretty long!!! i wish mine did that! I am so happy to see that you've been traveling and having a good time. I am glad that a fellow DDer is doing well! :)

for the boy, i'm gonna sit back for a bit, few days at least, see if he texts. i'm sure he will. I doubt he'll call. perhaps i'll mention it. maybe he'll step up to the plate. maybe it's too much for him. whatever the case, i can't let my heart get too intertwined right now as i've let it go to far already. he's been good to me lately, just not good enough.

Hey girls,

I'm making ceviche for the first time. You need to cook the fish on the lime juice overnight, so this will be dinner tomorrow.

It looks great so far, i'll let you know how it goes. But here's a good easy way to make it: http://simplyrecipes.com/recipes/ceviche/

I am doing with salmon and shrimp though. and I didn't use the chili or tabasco or oregano. Just onion, salt, pepper, tomatoes and lime juice on the fish. Tomorrow I'll add cilantro and slices of avocado to eat. and maybe a little more salad, like a mix of corn and tomatoes or corn and soy beans. Yum! I'll even take pictures. I ate this dish in argentina and it was sooo amazing and healthy! No oil or fat other than the good fats of the fish and avocado!

Weekend was great, even though after 3 months not seeing him at all, I bumped into the old/bad J with his new girlfriend at a show. But i was with Johnny and it wasn't too hard. Argh. Exs...

Last night Johnny and I went to a wedding and it was really fun.


B/L: salmon, scrambled eggs, bread, corn

S: grapes and yogurt

D: shrimp, brown rice, veggie medley

 Hey girls,

I've been super busy last week. Work in Argentina was really great and even though that have catering and treats all day long, i was able to come back with the same 179 as I left. I seem to be pretty stuck on that weight. I wanna change that in the weeks to come.

I am starting a belly dance class on tuesday. It goes all through the end of November, when we actually perform. Hahaha. I think it's funny, but I'm up for the challenge, Im sure it will help me to stick to it knowing i need to perform!

In argentina I had a ceviche, it was a plate of cubes of a few types of fish and shrimp and calamari all cooked on lime juice and lots of cilantro. its so awesome tasting and refreshing, for those of you who havent tried it, i suggest you look it up online, it's really easy to make and healthy, no oil, just the good fats of fish. They served it with a little chopped tomatoes and corn on the side, i am thinking of trying it with chopped avocado as well. johnny will be my guinea pig next week when i make it. we're talking about how to be healthier together. 

Here's a pic of us last night!

Let me know how the class goes, sounds interesting! It is great that you didn't gain any weight while you were gone. I always gain vacation weight.

 Arrived this morning in Buenos Aires. It's cold here, around 41. Brrr. Quite a change, it was warm in Atlanta. Atlanta has been hit hard by the rain. Let's hope it ends now and the families that had to evacuate get places to stay.

Busy day. Tomorrow it will be busier. at least 10 or 11 hour shoot day. 

 

B: juice, toast, cheese, yogurt

L: spinach and pasta

S: bread again

D: eggplant with cheese and salad.

love you thinking of you- get home safe, ok? xoxo


Donkey on 09/23/2009:
Ironic, isn't it, that Atlanta and that whole area has had such a long period of drought, and now they have this massive flooding. Feast of famine it seems.

My next door neighbor goes to Argentina every winter. He has family there.

Had a wonderful date with my bf last night, dinner and a movie. :)

Today I had meetings all day and went to dinner with a friend, probably eating out too much. I should go back to tuna and yogurt :)

 

- strawberries, coffee, half low fat muffin.

- chicken sandwich, a spoon of pasta salad

- 1/2 cookie, grapes

- burger (ugh).

T: 2500 maybe? not sure how bad that big burger was...

I had a session with my life coach yesterday. She suggested two things for the weight loss, a book called The Only Diet There Is and the Overaters Anonymous workbook. I will try to do the workbook since I don't feel like going to the meetings, but i am not opposed to try a meeting either. She also suggested journaling and planning ahead. But what she says and I agree is that it's all in our heads, and we don't need a miraculous combination of foods to mater our weight, we know what to do, what we need it a different mind set, and thus the books, the OA, etc. 

Thoughts?

 B: juice, banana and fiber 300

L: tuna 80 yogurt 70 cheese sandwich 420

S: bananas honey fiber iogurt 420

Subtotal - 1290

Today Im shooting for 1900 cals, since its too late for going low.

Apparently, you can do OA meetings online, you know. I do think that a lot of it is in our heads. Well, maybe not for you, because i'm not living in your brain (ha ha). But I know for me, MOST of my weight issues have almost always had emotional reasons behind them.


glycrina on 09/17/2009:
I don't know. I really like food. I think the exercise thing is my head. I have been telling myself that I suck at physical activities since I was picked last for kickball in the 3rd grade. I was in yoga class one day when the teacher told me I had a sense of rythm, strength and flow and asked if I was a dancer. I completely fell out of my tree pose -- I thought "I can't dance, I can't run, I cant swing a tennis raquet." But after I thought about it. WHY CAN'T I? So I asked my husband, a natural athlete, to play tennis and basketball with me and to take me running. I am not a natural but he has told me that I am not without hope either. For years, I just thought I had to be un-athletic. All the while, I just needed to try what felt good to me. Now I do yoga and I am running over a mile, I joined a bowling league and even play tennis with friends. Sure, I am not running marathons, but maybe some day . . .
