Crazy busy and productive day... Started out with a practice 5k, then went to salad creations and pet smart... Came home and mowed the lawn...PHEW  first time of the season!  I then went grocery shopping for tomorrow...  For mother's day, hubby and I are taking our mothers and their bf/husbands to the local AWESOME farmers market for local treats and wine tasting.  Then we are coming back here and having a tapas/wine afternoon...  My preliminary menu is as follows:

cheese, fruit, crackers, garlic toast platter
Homemade crabcakes
Stuffed mushrooms
Roasted asparagus
Veggie potstickers
Pizza Potstickers
Veggie quesadillas...

I will update later with today's food!

legcramps on 05/08/2011:
Wow that sounds like so much fun! Enjoy the day with your family.

Thanks for your comment to me yesterday - I think rye bread will work... at least, the book says it's better than whole wheat anyways ;)

So last night my company took us (all of the managers within our system) out to a very fancy celebration dinner at one of the hottest, most expensive restaurants in town... It was on the top floor of a 20 story building right in downtown Albany with a view of the skyline and a roof top deck...  I decided ahead of time, not to stuff myself, but not to "limit" either... Here is what I had...

2 "spoon appetizers" filled with multicolored roasted beets and goat cheese
1 lobster stuffed mushroom
Salad of mixed greens, blue cheese, tomatoes and cucumbers w/ vinegrette
1 roll w/ herb butter
1 giant crab cake over 1/3 cup rice and fresh herbed green beans and carrots
1/2 of my lava cake
1 beer, 1/2 vodka,club, splash of grapefruit, about 1.5 or 2 glasses of wine...

I thought I did pretty well... Not great, but not awful...  The crazy part is, I was not overly impressed with the food... Especially knowing they spent over $120 per person on the dinner/open bar!!!  

With all that said... I did not count calories or workout yesterday...  Today I am back with a vengance!!! 

B:  turk'y burger (80) on whole wheat roll (120) 200

S:  vitatop 100

L:  lean cuisine meal (270) w/ added veggies (20) cottage cheese (90) orange (50) 430

S:  almonds 150

Pre gym small dinner whole wheat roll (120) egg (70) LF cheese (40) 230

D:  1 cup steamed broccoli (20) 3/4 cup rice (160) 1 cup orangbe tofu (300) 480

Total so far: 1540

Goal: Under 1800

Exercise: 10 minutes on eliptical, lifting legs and lifting chest


Progress as of today: -1.4 lbs lost so far, only 45.2 lbs to go!

lifestylechange on 05/05/2011:
YUM to that food! Hope you have a great day!! :)

liza36 on 05/05/2011:
Out of everything you listed, the roasted beets and goat cheese sounded the most delicious! How fun to be treated to dinner. Have a good day!

Supercheese on 05/05/2011:
wow thats a lotta dough for not a great place. went i went to LV, we spent around 60 dollars per person and the food was still blah - but then again id go for pizza and a milkshake over that stuff ahaha

~Moody~ on 05/05/2011:
Lobster stuffed mushrooms~YUM!!!! Glad you enjoyed yourself!!

Hope you're having a great day!

sweetpea1977 on 05/05/2011:
lobster stuffed mushrooms sound great. Sorry the food wasnt as good as you expected it to be. At least it wasnt your money that got wasted. What a pricey meal!!

V on 05/05/2011:
You did REALLY well...I would have taken "open bar" as a challenge, LOL Seriously, it takes alot of will power not to succumb to a decadent spread...Have a good one!!

sweetpea1977 on 05/05/2011:
lol at V's "open bar" comment. :)

moogy on 05/05/2011:
Special occasions require a little 'wriggle' room, sounds like a wonderful evening. Well done with keeping the alcohol intake under control. Excellent work!!

thinkpositive on 05/06/2011:
I agree with many comments. Sometimes it's just worth it to indulge but you obviously kept things under control. And I envy you that you can buy the vitatops. I miss them- can't buy them where I live.

Not sure what happened to me last night... All the way home from work I was trying to decide between gym and running... I went home and did neither!!!  And I ate too many calories last night...  I think I was overtired or somthing... Anyway... I went to the library and got a few new books anmd just chilled... I did weigh in this morning and it was once again scary....   Tonight I have no choice but to at least work out a bit as I have golfing tonight...  Hoping and determined to make the rest of this week a good one!!

sweetpea1977 on 05/03/2011:
Come on girl, you can do it!!!!

Supercheese on 05/03/2011:
same thing happened to me........ate WAY too much and just sat around and felt blah....today im feeling the consequences. We can go it!!

hollybelle on 05/03/2011:
Well, I have been so excited in the morning and throughout the day about working out when I get home and then come home and collapsed on the couch and fallen asleep, actually! I find that if I sit I'm doomed. I am just going to not sit when I get home......we'll see how that plan goes!

hollybelle on 05/03/2011:
P.S. I could counter-act this by exercising in the a.m. - but that would probably make too much sense! LOL!

~Moody~ on 05/03/2011:
I know it's tough getting a workout in sometimes. What I have learned to do is tell myself "just 30 minutes" and I can stop..Usually I end up going longer than that..The trick is GETTING STARTED!! Hope you have fun golfing tonight!

V on 05/03/2011:
You CAN do this!!

My weekend was a little out of control on the eating/drinking front... I ate really well on Saturday but then ended up having a party w/ lots of alcohol saturday night... Yesterday, hubby was VERY hungover and convinced me to get pizza... oops...  Hubby and I did run a practice 5k though on Saturday which is HUGE as the farthest I had ran so far this year is about 1.5 miles...  My time was 40 minutes, about 6 minutes slower than last years best race time, but at least I have a starting point and I can work from here! 

I'm happy to report that I am not feeling guilty and down b/c of my weekend slip ups... They were a part of life (and for me I realistically know they always will be)  I'm facing today determined and excited for a healthy week!!!  I didn't weigh in today, but I will be back on the scale tomorrow...

Anyway, good job on the 5K!

Have a healthy week!

Amazing job on the run!!! I totally get what you are saying about just being a normal person having a drink and yes you can do it all as long as you go extra hard with your workouts on the day after..You got this lovie!!!

hollybelle on 05/02/2011:
Yes, you ran and that's what is important! I had to laugh because I first read your post as not feeling guilty about "sit-ups" instead of slip ups! I was so confused for a minute! LOL

I'm taking today off from exercising, but tomorrow I have a hike over some majorly hilly terrain planned with a friend!!  Last time I did this hike, I was in better shape and still very sore, so it should be a great workout...

sweetpea1977 on 04/29/2011:
Thank you so much for the link. That helped put things back in perspective for me. :)

Great job on the exercise yesterday. You have been kicking butt with your workouts, so Im sure your body needed the extra calories. Thats one reason why I like the zigzag calorie method as it allows you to have higher calorie days without having any permanent damage on the scale.

Enjoy that hike!!

moogy on 04/29/2011:
Well with all that working out you would have got away with those calories and still lost weight. I hope that you have a good weekend and get some relaxing in.:)

~Moody~ on 04/29/2011:
I love hiking..sounds like the perfect workout! Have fun!!!!

h82bfat on 04/30/2011:
THe hike sounds great! And yes: Something is better than nothing! I wonder what that is, when you're hungry all day? Maybe it our bodies craving certain nutrients now that we are exercising more...? Girl - I don't know, but is sure sounds good, right?! ;c)

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/30/2011:
you may have ended high in calories, but i can pretty much assure you that you did still burn them all. that's not too many calories! :-D keep up the GREAT work!

Hang in there, it sounds like appetite and not hunger, caused by some strange female activity going on inside you!!! Good going with your calories and your exercise!!

V on 04/28/2011:
I take Jacked as well!! :) I love the feeling it gives ya when lifting but you have to be careful about what you consume.With that being said, Jacked really does work but if your focus is more on shedding the lbs, I would suggest taking another supplement...Jet fuel is great, also redline, Lipo6hers black or meltline....I am sure you know jacked has a little creatine in it so you might want to hold off on taking that til you get closer to your goal weight....Jet fuel or Lipo6hers are at the top of the list on the muscle and fitness chart for getting leaner and shedding lbs so I would check those out(as long as you don't have heart problems)....Oh hey I am going to send you a message via fb with another supplement you might be interested in, including before and after shots :)

hollybelle on 04/29/2011:
As hard as your working out it's natural to be hungry. Just make sure you fill up on foods that are big in volume and low in cals. You are doing wonderfully!

Weight: 196.2

**UPDATE**  Its SO nice here..I went for an after dinner run/walk... I ran 6 more minutes and then walked for 18!!

I forgot to bring my workout clothes to work and didn't feel like wasting the gas to drive home and then back to the gym so I improvised and got in a 48 minute workout of the following:

2 sets of 15 hammer curls with 10 pounds weights

2 sets of 15 concentration curls w/ 10 pound weights.

1 set of tricep dips off the bench -10

7s with the weights for biceps

2 sets of tricep raises w/ 10 pounds (20 first set, 12 2nd set)

1 set on each side of 1 handed tricep raises

18 minute power walk w/ a few bursts of running mixed in.

2 sets of 12 front and side raises each with 5 pound weights

2 sets of 15 upright rows with 10 pound weight

After the power walk, during the other sets, I did the following intervals to keep my heart rate up:  20 step ups on my bench surround the apple tree in my yard, 20 fake jump ropes, front, and both sides plank.

Then I did about 5 minutes of abs...  I did this all outside in my backyard... YAY for spring!!!!!!!

Well I was PERFECT yesterday and my weight is up today... LOL!  I'm sure its just a fluxuation...  calories ended up at about 1370 and exercise was a 1 hour golf lesson... hit LOTS of balls so my back is feeling it today and then a 30 minute walk/run... I alternated 3 minutes of running/3 minutes of walking for the whole 30 minutes...

Today's plan is the gym for a brief lifting session and either walking, running, or a combo afterwards!  I'm happy to report it was 85 and sunny here yesterday!!!!!  Today its suppose to be sunny and in the 70s... FINALLY!!!!!!!

B:  Banana (80) tomato basil pizza burger (120) on bagel thin (100) 300

sweetpea1977 on 04/27/2011:
Yea, that has to be a fluctuation, so its good to see you're not worried about it. Im betting your body noticed your increased intensity and is trying to rebel. Just keep on top the exercise and great food choices and you will win the battle. :)

Umpqua on 04/27/2011:
Sounds like a weird fluctuation to me, you'll be down soon. Great job with the food and exercise yesterday!

Weight: 195.0

*Update* today's workout was my 1 hour golf lesson and then a 30 minute run/walk... I alternated 3 minutes running w/ 3 minutes walking 5 times each....

Totally dead set and motivated today...  I've  been periodically stepping on the scale for the last few weeks/months and its been a little scary, but today was a tipping point... 195.somthing... 195  WTF? I have never weighed 195... what a scary scary wake up call... I've been eating pretty healthy, but not tracking consistently and not staying low enough in calories... Unfortunately I am not the type of person who can eat "pretty healthy" and not gain weight... I need to strictly monitor everything...

I also had a long talk w/ hubby 2 nights ago about how I've been depressed seeming and very very down... He actually noticed this more than I did... We basically (well he, with me grudgingly agreeing) traced it back to when we decided to try to get pregnant... Going into the whole thing with the Drs telling me it probably won't happen naturally, blah, blah, blah, really has taken more of a toll on me than I ever imagined...   About 5 years ago, when hubby and I were dating, he wasn't sure if he wanted more children (he has a 13 year old daughter) and at the time I was ok with that... Then when we got engaged, I was pretty sure I wanted a child in the future, so we talked about it, and at the time we decided we would, but we would never go to any extraordinary measures to have one...  I had no idea I was at risk for having issues back then...  Well fast forward to my latest MD appointments and they are basically tellilng me that I have about a 25% chance of having a child "naturally"  but because my only issue is scar tissue from surgery, that I will be a great candidate for IVF if it comes to that and I shouldn't worry b/c I can definitely have a kid...   Well I've been freaking out and really upset b/c I was under the impression that hubby would not do that... Not to mention it costs about $10,000...  Anyway, long story short...  Hubby is actually as excited and determined to have a kid as I am and he is more than willing to go throught IVF if that is what it comes to...

Now I don't even know if when it came down to it, I would do IVF, but just knowing this and seeing how on board with everything he is, really made me feel LIGHT YEARS better!!!  Not sure why I didn't talk to him about this earlier, he is amazing and my best friend and has never been anything but supportive of me throughout everything I've done in life, but who knows...

Anyway, its like I've awoken from a trance...  I see how blah and heavy I have gotten in the last 8 months and I'm saddened, but terribly motivated!!!  I WILL lose weight, I will have complete control over my eating and I WILL get into kick a$$ shape!!! 

I've updated my weight to the cold hard truth and it starts... TODAY...

B:  2 slices light toast (90) strawberries (30) 1.5T peanutbutter (150) 270

OMG, that's a serious subject, girl :-( I mean, with children. Some people who want/deserve/could afford to have children just can't, and then you have those starving, mistreated, abandoned, etc. children all over the world, it makes one angry and questioning the existence of the Allmighty... Well, I agree it's a possible cause to your depression and turning towards eating... I hope you get out from it and 25% is not that bad, maybe they underestimate it also... Anyway, I'm 200% with you! We never give up on any level! xoxo K.

Good for you for stepping back to evaluate everything that's been going on, and also for having a heart to heart with your hubby. That's great that he's on the same page as you about the IVF, I'm sure you feel so much better about that now! Good for you for recommitting to your health and charging forward, you can do this and we are here for you!!

Im in tears right now. Im so glad you and hubby are on the same page regarding your mental and physical health and your desire to have a child. Im also very happy that you have gotten your wake up call. Sometimes, its takes a scary moment to wake up the determination that has been hidden away for so long.

We're here for ya babe!

Conversations regarding serious topics where we didn't know how the other party would feel but in which we find out that our thoughts match can have an amazing effect on the psyche. I am happy that you and your husband had that conversation and it has helped you. But, should you ever need an e-shoulder to cry on or someone to simply talk to, remember, you have a couple dozen ladies willing to listen to you, feel with you, and guide you (if necessary). Many times, just talking about it to people makes me feel much much better, even if nothing has been resolved.

You are still very very young. Anything and everything can happen.

Just out of curiosity, how do you feel about adopting? I know for many couples that simply isn't an option.

Great job with getting the motivation again. :)

So glad you and hubby talked and are on the same page~I wish you the best of luck!!!!

In that case, sounds like it's time for you to get preggo. Then we can have another DD baby! And I will get to call someone Preggo for 9 months (unless you tell us late, at which point I will still get my fill ;) lol)

Good luck, love, and remember, we're all here for you.

I am glad that you and your husband tracked down what the problem with your feeling was. I wish you luck with trying to get pregnant with IVF, it is a heartbreaking process but does sometimes end with a beautiful baby. Please check out all the facts before you go ahead, success rates, number of times needed to succeed etc. I say this because I have friends who have had success and failure with the process and I feel it is better to be well informed before starting a process. Best wishes to you:)

I wish you all the luck in the world :) You deserve both baby and the body you desire :) You deserve it all!!

I know you have probably been trying but sex is great exercise and since you might get pregnant what a great side effect. My exhusband only had 1 testicle and the Dr said we only had a 50% chance of having a baby. So I wore my poor husband out and I swear he kicked and screamed all the time lol. But 1 year later I was pregnant and now we have a great 6 ft tall, intelligent, sweet, 31 year old son. Dont let depression ever get you. Life is too short not to have a good time.
