Last Monday of complete freedom...

Monday, July 30th 2012

Classes start next Monday, and I am pretty excited. I am a little hesitant about super-excitement because I had such a miserable time at ISU, but I think this is going to be a good experience. I am looking forward to it.

I just woke up from a great nap!! Sometimes there is just nothing better than a nap--so self-indulgent. I'm going to finish up my V8, check the front yard for evil dandelions, and then take the car down to get the tire checked. When I get home, I'm going to do my pushu...

No weight change yet

Sunday, July 29th 2012

But neither have I gained. I am still at 200.5 and I haven't managed a BM in a couple of days. Maybe because of the diet change and maybe because I've been taking a pain pill at night. If nothing happens today, I might do something to get my GI tract moving. I can't say I haven't had enough fiber though! I've been eating vegies like crazy. I'm starting to get some fresh tomatoes from my garden and they are sooooooo good.

I'm about done with my coffee, and then I'm going to go out and ...

Today was good

Saturday, July 28th 2012

I took my eating biorhythm and combined it with "skinny rules" and "warrior diet" and developed my own diet strategy. Day 2 into this plan and all seems to be going OK. Basically what I'm doing is eating one big meal per day and snacking on fresh fruit and "light" protein (greek yogurt, FF cottage cheese, or eggs) during the day. I am going to add some vegetable juices to this as I get going. Following the "skinny rules," I eat at least one apple and b...

July Still???

Thursday, July 26th 2012

I am struggling with when I am hungry. I'm not really hungry in the morning--I do fine with coffee and maybe just some muscle milk. I've always eaten breakfast, but as I study my schedule, I don't really care about it. Around lunch time, I want a salad with meat (e.g. tuna) and/or raw vegies. In the afternoon, fruit is my thing. Then, at dinner, I want PROTEIN -- as in meat. As I work through all this, I find I don't really care if I have bread or grains very often. So can I make this int...

Better late than never

Sunday, July 8th 2012

What a day! I was so darned tired and beat up from my Saturday workout that I was a complete recliner blob. I struggled through a 2-mile walk, something I would have done easily a few months ago, but today it was all I could do to finish. When I came home, I tried to sleep but got nothing but phone calls (a rarity for me). But my eating was OK --for a bit.

Then I went out to Sunday dinner with DH and MIL. So much for the decent eating. I did eat salad bar at JB's -- plus spit pea soup...
