I have not been on spark for 11 days. Yep I have things to tell now
Like... I lost weight, in the past 20 days. I took my weight and never-mind you I was not eating the best and I still lost some. I lost 1.2lb; It was mostly up and downs and struggling as you will see in my blogs. So yeah- I was pretty happy about that. I restricted my daily intake by 150 to 200 calories most of the days and I lost weight. Now I know I can loose more if I put in more efforts. Imagine how much more I could loose if was more careful and dedicated.
At work I am able to just pick the healthy meal. I work in a hospital and they have the 3$ healthy meal for employees which is : water, meat and a veggie" - I usually go for the pizza, salami ciabata sandwich ,with the 250 calories chips and soda. So for me that is Big. And I am starting to enjoy oatmeal for breakfast. oatmeal by itself or with one toast.
I did not work out last week at all. I think it was because of procrastination : "oh I will work out during the week end. Oh I have time" then it did not happen. I feel a little better because I work like full time hours now and get to walk a lot :)- like 10,000 steps according to my fitbit and yesterday I had 22,000 steps. But still - its the actual gym habit I need. And Oh well I can sit there and beat myself- but am not. I will do better this week thats all.
Oh man - Today I woke up feeling GREAT!!!! - had my oatmeal, did house chores and went out to get healthy stuff with the decision to cook more at home, because its healthier for me and Hubby- So it was 1pm and I was about the drive home and LORD HELP ME- Dios Mio- Hunger striked me- I was craving Pizza, Fries, Fat, Tres- Leches ( a very sweet Spanish desert with lots of condensed milk). Plan was simple - Go home and eat the salad that I had bought already and have dinner later.
Boy it did not happened- So I am driving and I see Wendys, Panera Bread , Mc Donalds and I stopped at Taco bell Got 2 quesadillas and 2 of these cinnamon deserts and a small sprite and went home and ate and Oh my it tasted so good. Am laughing at this now. But its really not funny one of these quesadillas is like 500 calories- So I easily ingested for lunch 1,600 calories. yeah I know- now I wanna cry about it - that's a whole days meal. I am still full now- probably not gonna eat for the rest of the day. OMG am so Bipolar- Anyways move on
LESSON LEARNED: If expecting to be hungry while out - Take a healthy Bar or an apple or a shake and put it in the car.
Its 5pm- am gonna try to go for a work out today.
I Wanted to say a few words to my readers and also to me : We read a lot about success stories and what we don't read a lot about is the struggle. Like guys I struggle, and it is not easy to loose weight but it is doable. My heart and my scale tell me it is. And even if its slow I rather be 140 in December and lost 15 lb in 11 months then be 170lb in December. So Fighting Fighting!!!! Guys- (Fighting fighting is a south Korean way to say " We can do this, Dont give up"
