Health Prompt for February 26 - March 3

This week let's review the goals we've made in past weeks and evaluate how we're doing. Need to change them up? Did you forget about some of them and need to start over? If you're rocking them, maybe it's time to add some new ones.

You know what they say; fall 7 times, get up 8....so it is with me. I fell WAY off the wagon for my birthday...until today.  Roll Eyes

Tomorrow is getting up to exercise and get back on track. I seem to pair healthy eating with exercise, like wasting my effort on bad calories? Anyway one compliments the other so I'm counting calories tomorrow.

My new goals are to get an appt with a sports medicine doctor to see about why my hip aches a lot and not lose total control on the weekends like I do now. I work 3rd shift then and it seems like I lose control and eat lots of junk.

Third shifts are hard.  I used to work in community mental health group homes and pulled a lot of midnight shifts and it was never easy to eat right those days.

I'm glad I found this thread, I've been losing motivation to exercise again.  This week though, I have a new goal.  If I do all my exercise that I'm supposed to, I can order a belly dance piece of music and if I do two weeks straight through, I can order a hip belt of my very own, instead of having to borrow from the instructor.  Smiley  It's definitely motivating.  Smiley

I'm doing pretty well on the food side.  I love to cook and I made a bunch of things this weekend to eat up during the week, so I haven't been going out or buying extras.

Hey peeps, I think I might start a little challenge to help us stay motivated! I'm going to offer a prize to someone who makes some goals and keeps them every day. We'll do this next week. Not sure what the prize will be, but either craft or cooking related Cheesy Possibly tailored to the winner. So get ready to step it up next week!

Started the day with a green smoothie, no coffee. Had a tea mid morning, skipped the muffin. Salad, cauliflower, avocado and homemade dressing for lunch. If I didn't have bad cramps and a headache (unrelated to diet) I'd even break out a work out dvd. Tomorrow...

Yum! I bought a couple avocadoes and will have to put them in my salad tonight! I just busted out 45 minutes of Just Dance 2 and am making steel cut oats for lunch. Dinner is going to be broiled pork chops, "fried" cabbage and apples, and a giant green salad.  Oh, and I was down 2 lbs yesterday even though it's PMS time, so I think I might even be down more than that when it all evens out!

My overall goals since starting up on the thread with you guys have gone very well. The only thing I need to work on is drinking more water. I find that I get very frequent headaches, which I'm pretty sure has to do with me being dehydrated all the time. The only time I really get enough water is when I'm working. I work in a restaurant kitchen in front of a 600 degree grill and we are actually required to drink water while working. Heat stroke is a serious issue! =)

I bought a scale over a month ago and have officially lost my first TEN pounds on my new diet. My man and I are following a mostly 'Primal' diet with a few dairy items thrown in because we don't eat very much fat. Tuesdays we eat whatever we want, but I've found I'm craving more healthy eats and less take-out. I can't remember the last time I craved a hamburger or fries or anything.

You guys have been so much help! You're all inspiring and this is an awesome thread and a great idea.

Copngrats felix-xx! That is great!

I was excited that at dinner I didn't really have a starchy side (cabbage and apples was the closest I guess) like rice, potatoes, or pasta, and nobody complained. My brother and boyfriend were both there for dinner with me and my mom, so much more fun to cook for 4 than for 1 or 2!

You guys are so awesome and inspiring!  Just reading this thread is helping me stay on track.

I finally made the Crispy Quinoa and Kale recipe...it came out more fluffy than crispy, but I like it!  The only issue I had was that the cumin was a little over powering.  I added a little bit of mozzarella and garlic salt, and that cut the flavor a bit.  Next time I'll adjust the seasonings some, but there will be a next time!

Since I worked out yesterday I still had quite a few calories left over even after dinner. I made oat crepes for me and the boyfriend and put nutella, banana, whipped cream, and strawberries in/on them. I ate 1 1/2 and it was only like 230 calories! Such a yummy treat, and got some oats in too!

Oat crepes: grind oats in coffee grinder into flour. To blender add 1 egg, 1/2 cup milk of choice (I used unsweetened almond), 1/2 cup oat flour and blend. Heat medium sized frying pan over medium-high heat and add a touch of oil/butter if you like. Use about 1/4 of the batter at a time and swirl around to get as thin as possible. Cook on both sides and devour!

It sounds like everyone is doing well! Me, on the other hand, not so much. I've fallen off of the bandwagon. Here's a list of what I ate/drank today--hopefully putting it out there will shock me back into rationality...

Three Dr. Peppers
Garlic puff rolls (3)
An entire bag of tortilla chips (not the little snack size either)
Cheese curds
Noodles in tomato/beef broth (not so bad really)
Gummy candy
Chocolate ice cream

I make myself sick! No wonder I feel tired all the time.

Tomorrow I'm going for the goal of a cup of yogurt with granola and a glass of water before work at 10:30. For lunch I'll probably finish off the noodle soup. Also going to grab some salad stuff from the store. For dinner I have some leftover pizza, but it's a Margherita, so lots of basil and tomatoes, and not a lot of sauce, and I never finish the entire crust. And I'm going to add some more tomatoes to it. It's hard to mediate between not wasting food and eating healthy.... Sad Sorry I'm not much encouragement this week! But maybe you can use my horrible disgustingness as an example of what NOT to do Tongue
