legcramps - Sunday Aug 25, 2013

Weight: 168.0

Friday evening snack: greek yogurt, fruit and nuts.

no exercise


Saturday lunch: froyo, fruit and granola. just let me overload on dairy.

brought home my new treadmill and spent some time setting it up before heading to a fundraiser event. got home late. set up the treadmill and took a 15 minute walk. hey, exercise is exercise whenever you can get it in, right?

Saturday pm snack: munchies mix while reading.

Saturday dinner: steak, baked potato, coleslaw and salad. very proud - ate until just barely full so that I could have dessert as well; that meant lots of food left on the plate. I don't know why the cooks thought we could each take on an 8 pound steak anyways. dessert was a chocolate slice and a piece of butter tart.

not enough water.


Sunday breakfast: mocha, water.

Progress as of today: 17 lbs lost so far, only 8 lbs to go!

OhioRaven on 08/25/2013:
I like my treadmill especially during football, mma, and NASCAR.


OArecovery on 08/26/2013:
That is so awesome that you got a treadmill and go some exercise in! And well done too on your Saturday dinner portion controlling!


liza36 on 08/26/2013:
Yay for a new treadmill.


MrsD on 08/26/2013:
YAY for new exercise equipment! Good for you!!!! And every little bit of exercise counts! Have a great day Legs!!

Thursday dinner: sprouted rice, quinoa, chicken breast, steamed veggies. geez that's boring.

The hummus tortillas got me while I was reading... after a few of those, they start to taste a lot less interesting. Just saying. I did even it out with a lot of water.


Friday breakfast: coffee, water.

Grieving over the loss of best friend's father; why God takes the wonderful ones i'll never understand. Spent some time alone with her, and then with the family. Tough day; they are such strong people.

Friday lunch: forced down sprouted rice, quinoa, chicken breast and steamed veggies, more water.

Friday dinner: had some of this and that with friend's family.

Just got home; I have a headache that won't go away so I think i'll just sit and try to relax for a moment or two. A walk would help, if I could just get myself to go for one.

Progress as of today: 17 lbs lost so far, only 8 lbs to go!

Wednesday dinner: wild rice, quinoa, veggies and chicken breast.

Wednesday evening snack: greek yogurt, fruit and nuts, water.

went to ball team's wind-up last night; wasn't as entertaining as I thought it might be, so opted out early to head home and read before bed.

NO exercise today - first day in a long, long time :(


Thursday morning breakfast: iced coffee.

Thursday lunch: peaches, hummus tortilla chips, water.

put away the rest of my shopping spree findings; cut the grass (mulched); watered plants and just generally tidied up in the yard. also sprayed the deck with spider repellant - those things look like they're getting bigger and bigger, and I DO NOT want them joining me in my bed. saw one that had a WHITE back. wth? arachnophobia setting in.

Thursday pm snack: hummus tortilla chips, lots of water.

Progress as of today: 17 lbs lost so far, only 8 lbs to go!

Spiders are Good ! They eat the Bad bugs.

So NOT agreeing with Ohio..Spiders? No mi gusto, I was bit by one and my entire face ballooned up, had to go to the ER..I will leave it at that.. Anyhoo hope you have a good evening friend :)


Umpqua on 08/23/2013:
Not a huge fan of spiders myself, although I generally try to ignore them. You've been doing great with your foods!

Wonderful clean eating over the weekend. I hope you have a good one today!

Man I wish you could come over to help with my chores..I blew most of them off today..Hahahaha Oh well.. Sounds like you had a low key weekend, I hope it was a nice relaxing one for ya <3

legcramps on 08/19/2013:
I would make an awesome housekeeper ;) I've been trying to manipulate people into doing my yardwork by offering my house cleaning services. I don't know why it isn't working.

legcramps on 08/19/2013:
probably because they've seen my yard and cleaning a house just doesn't compare in effort required ;)


hollybelle on 08/19/2013:
Looks like a good weekend - maximum power on the food, cleaning and hanging in there!

legcramps on 08/19/2013:
thanks! it was :)



legcramps - Saturday Aug 17, 2013

Weight: 168.0

I was kind of pooped after work yesterday.

Friday: 40 minute walk, dinner was baked tofu and salad - delicious - and tried some dairy-free ice cream - not delicious. Got snacky in the evening, likely because I was bored, and had some nuts, fruit, and wild rice.

Went to the city this morning to look for a new treadmill, but didn't find anything in my price range :( got an iced coffee instead, which actually went quite well with my strawberry/banana smoothie for breakfast. Had to have a burger for lunch before heading out to the golf course, did 18 holes, and now am back at home snacking on some sort of munchies mix from bulk barn whose ingredients I should have looked more closely at. Dinner will be tofu and salad once again because it was so darn good the night before.

Just A Note that has nothing to do with Healthy Living (or maybe it does in a roundabout way):

Slightly annoyed, with both myself and others. I would like to be a more approachable person as I've been told I can be intimidating and hard to approach on a social basis. Not sure how to do this. Gets frustrating sometimes, putting extra effort in when i'm just not feeling it. Wish I could be better at this, but I'm not!

 I wish my coffee looked like this; instead I had to pour creamer into my coffee at work because the stuff is so dark that I cringed just looking at it. And yes, the first sip confirmed my suspicions - too strong!

Thursday: 20 minute walk, homemade veggie pizza for dinner, sunflower seeds at the baseball game. I was tuckered by the time I got home after picking up water and groceries and hefting them into the house. It was very warm and I broke a sweat just standing on the deck. So I decided that yardwork might spell trouble with a capital SUNSTROKE and opted instead to cut up and divide all my groceries, and cook a nice dinner before the ball game.

Which took long enough; I purchased a whack of food. I bagged chicken breast, cut up tofu and added a marinade, cut up and bagged green onion, yellow onion, bell peppers and a host of other veggies, separated fruit into water and vinegar, and tasked myself with making oatmeal for breakfast this morning.

Local ball team took home the trophy last night by becoming the champions of the WMBL league! Very exciting :)

And then I watched my guilty pleasure, Glee, and went to bed.


Plan today is oatmeal and fruit, leftover veggie pizza, nuts, cottage cheese and green onion. When I get home I want to cook the tofu and make a spring mix salad to go with it.

OhioRaven on 08/16/2013:
Hooray for the Home Team ! Did I read this right...you can marinate tofu ? Is this legal ?


Umpqua on 08/16/2013:
Yummy foods yesterday and you were wise to avoid the sun and heat. Yay for your team winning!


biscottibody59 on 08/16/2013:
Congrats to your team!

Sounds like your part of Canada gets the worst of the cold AND the heat. We're in a lull of cool right now--weird!

Have a lovely weekend!


V on 08/16/2013:
Once again Yayyy for the home team!!

RYC the "zombie look" is not a good one for me, Hahahahaha Have a great weekend friend :)

Wednesday: 40 minute walk (twice at work); washed the garage and deck, cleaned up patio furniture. Felt like I did more than what the reality is...

Local baseball team WON last night 3-2, so game four is tonight. It'll be a nail-biter for sure! It would be delicious if they could pull out the clincher on home territory.

Chicken, wild rice & quinoa, sauteed veggies for dinner, sunflower seeds (1 serving) at the ball game, added pecans and chocolate chips for an after-game snack before bed. Very good day.


I really need to get groceries today, and water. All that's left in my world is canned food and about a 1/2 cup of cooked rice, besides the usual staples. I have a crapload of almond milk to finish up - I bought it with the intention of making oatmeal for breakfasts, but the oatmeal I bought needs to be cooked and everyone knows that's not how I roll with breakfast foods LOL. Can't even do overnight oats with it, so it's been relegated to the "baking ingredients" cupboard.

So a 20 minute walk at lunch, pick up groceries and water, do some yardwork (transfer tomatoes, clean up empty pots, maybe cut the front grass?) and head to game four tonight.

A few more days of work, and i'm back on days off. Summer holidays are priceless.

grannyannie on 08/15/2013:
I have porridge/oatmeal every morning but my eyes don't open quickly so I prepare it the night before. I measure out the oats (regular), cinnamon and dried fruit if I'm using and put the bowl in the microwave. Then I measure out a mix of water and almond or soy milk and put it in a container in the fridge. All I have to do is dump in the fluid and zap. A splash of milk after it's cooked and that's it. :)

legcramps on 08/15/2013:
Good idea! Maybe i'll give that a try.


skinnygrlwithin on 08/15/2013:
I have a lot of friends that prepare their breakfast the night before... eggs, omelets, oatmeal... I think it's a least worth a shot!


Umpqua on 08/15/2013:
Good idea and making breakfast in advance. Or you could make oatmeal bars with them, which also make a good breakfast on the go (but not as filling as a bowl of oatmeal). Great that you get a lot of time off in the summer!


biscottibody59 on 08/15/2013:
Good luck to your team!

Have you ever thought of getting a mulching blade for your mower? I simply wouldn't mow anymore if I had to bag clippings. Your yard must look beautiful!

legcramps on 08/16/2013:
It does mulch, but I choose to bag the grass instead. I don't really have a good reason, except for that most of the time, the grass is too long to just mulch it ;)


V on 08/15/2013:
Congrats to the home team winning!! It's crazy how in the morning I am not in the mood for traditional breakfast food which is why I do my shakes..On the weekend(especially when I am hungover) I will tear some bfast food up! Ya dig ;) LOL Great job on the lawn work, have a good evening friend :)


hollybelle on 08/16/2013:
Two weeks ago I was down to pretty much odds and ends and spices in my cabinets.....LOL-oh, and peanut butter! Go get some grub, girl! Good work on everything, though! Walks at work - wonderful! Congrats on the ball teams win!

Yesterday was a 20 minute walk at lunch; pulled weeds for about half an hour and worked up a bit of a sweat. Dinner was leftover chinese. Grandma and I split whatever was left of the chinese food, and i'm sure we both got two more meals out of it. 7 meals for $23.00 is pretty spiffy, no? I visited a friend for a bit, and then cooked up the chicken, some more wild rice and quinoa, and sauteed brussel sprouts, carrots and green beans together. I'll have this for lunch and dinner today. And then i'll need to get groceries, unless I want to eat rice and hummus for the rest of the week.


Another walk at lunch; hoping to continue the yardwork today, maybe clean up the deck a bit and spray the garage with the garden hose. Must water plants today as well. And then WMBL BASEBALL FINALS, GAME THREE! We are tied at 1-1, best of 5 games. How awesome if our local team walked away with the trophy. This is better than the majors, people ;)

That is all.

grannyannie on 08/14/2013:
Busy, busy! Sounds like good plans. Yes, $23 is a good deal!


OhioRaven on 08/14/2013:
Hope your team does well. The other team can kiss a monkey !


Umpqua on 08/14/2013:
Good job with the activity and picking away at your yard work. I hope your team wins!


V on 08/14/2013:
Good luck to your local team!! And yes 7 meals for 23 bucks is amazeballs!! I usually spend 50-70 bucks for weekly meals.. Have a good evening friend <3
