New Years Resolutions 2013

16th January 2013

Oh hi.

So it’s been a long while since I last posted – not sure if anyone besides my husband has noticed but in this case, it’s been unavoidable.

I’ve been sick with bronchitis and double ear infections and taking care of kids with a lovely combination of stomach flu, ear infections, bronchitis, and pink eye over the holiday. Oh, and throw in the MAN COLD for good measure.

I blame Santa.

I’m also in the midst of a bit of a scary health situation right now and I’m trying not to freak out. I’m not really one to blog about this kind of thing because I can’t go there and maintain any sense of sanity at the moment. Bottom line: blogging hasn’t been high on the list.

*

So, I know that it’s mid January already, and I’m thinking that it’s maybe too late to make some personal resolutions for 2013, but I’m going to do it anyway. When I think of resolutions as someone who is going to turn the dreaded 40 this year, I actually keep thinking of that famous Thoreau quote in my head:

“I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberately, I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, To put to rout all that was not life and not when I had come to die, discover that I had not lived.”

I just love that line – “suck out all the marrow of life”. I just feel like I’ve allowed things like my weight and personal insecurities stop me from living my life, from sucking any damn marrow. I’m tired of going through the motions and I’m just so over it. There are so many things that I’ve said no to, parties and events I’ve avoided and opportunities I’ve turned down because of this weird, little, ugly, fat bubble I’ve created for myself.

So this is the year where I stop hating on myself and instead, make myself a priority. So here are my 2013 Resolutions:

  • Quit drinking Diet Coke for good. Ugh.
  • Cut down caffeine with the ultimate goal of cutting it out permanently. Double ugh.
  • Cut all sugars and grains from my diet with the goal of weight loss.
  • Do C25K on the treadmill without going into cardiac arrest.
  • Get the entire family eating better and more active.
  • Take a 10wk life seminar for women. I’m the first person to make fun of this kind of thing, but actually a girlfriend told me about her experience and I really want to do it. She said it was life changing, so I’m all over it.
Also, a few home resolutions:
  • Organize all my photos and finally get photo books done of the kiddies.
  • Purge the very scary and overstuffed crawl space and organize it.
  • Teach the bird to say, “Take out the garbage!” and “Down with the man cold.”

And a blog resolution or two:

  • Change up my blog design.
  • Write a lot more posts that reflect what I did when I first started blogging – miss just writing for the sake of writing.

Wishing everyone a healthy and happy 2013.

Low Carb Weight Loss – Week Six

26th April 2012

Week Six, also known as the longest week EVER also known as the husband JUST go back from his business trip.

On the bright side, it’s been 32 DAYS since I’ve had a Diet Coke.  Woo! That’s the longest I’ve EVER gone without Diet Coke since drinking it and I don’t miss it at all. I’m thrilled about it at this point – it’s made a HUGE difference in how I feel. Notice, I didn’t say coffee however. I had a Starbucks latte with my girlfriend yesterday – we needed caffeine as we discussed how to make our husbands more Christian Grey, less annoying. Honestly, I didn’t enjoy it as much as I used to, and yes, my stomach paid for it later. Oh well, the company was worth the gut rot. I don’t plan on making it a regular thing – so I’m cool with it.

I also FINALLY received the Jillian Michaels Body Revolution DVDs that I ordered ages ago. (NOT sponsored, by the way) It’s this three month program that will HOPEFULLY get me in much better shape than I’m in now and what a coincidence, there are three months until Blogher so it kind of works out. It comes with 15 DVDs – 5 for each month and it gets progressively harder as you go. It also comes with a meal plan that is suggested, so I’m a bit stuck as to what I should do in terms of diet. Should I stick with low carb that I’m truthfully a bit bored of at this point but is working, or should I try to incorporate a bit of carbs at breakfast at least, or should I just switch over to her meal plan? Her plan is a 1200 calorie a day plan – I’m not sure what I should do so if you have advice, I would love to hear it.

The most interesting aspect of her “fat burning meal plan” is that she suggests NEVER eating the following when trying to lose weight: “soy, peanuts, pine nuts, millet, bamboo shoots, peaches, strawberries and raw cruciferous veggies (broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, brussel sprouts and kale)” because “they have Goitrogenic affects – these are substances that suppress the function of the thyroid gland by interfering with iodine uptake, which can as a result cause an enlargement of the thyroid.” Who knew? Oh, and she also includes “alcohol, flax, more than 400mg of caffeine, MSG, HFCS, artificial sweeteners, artificial colors, artificial flavor, nitrates and heavily processed foods.”

I suppose if I stick with what I’m doing, while making sure I don’t eat any of the above things, I should be good. I’ll guess we’ll see. I’m starting today and plan to take measurements and pics so that I can the difference after three months. Of course, I’m always open to suggestions or advice, so feel free to share if you have some.

So here’s where I’m at with the numbers:

Week Five:

Weight LOST this week: 2.5

Weight Lost to date: 18.0

Weight left to Lose: 82.0

First Goal: 10 pounds (Reward: Magazine subscription) – DONE April 5/12 (ordered subscription to Vanity Fair)

Low Carb Weight Loss – Week Five

19th April 2012

I suppose it was inevitable at some point, but I had a bad week.

I celebrated Greek Orthodox Easter this past weekend and it was great and I didn’t cheat the entire day. And then I went home with leftovers and chocolate, and somehow some of that chocolate got in my belly. And maybe some spanakopita.

I blame the Easter bunny.

So I’ve spent the last few days being really mad at myself about the whole thing. And when I get mad at myself, I get defeatist and then I get all “Oh what’s the point, I can’t possibly lose all this weight”. And then I get all negative and hide in the closet with the lady porn until my mood brightens.

On the bright side, it’s been 25 Days since I’ve had a Diet Coke or any coffee. Although, I’ve been dreaming of a latte lately – might have to consider a decaf version at some point. Life without lattes? Is that worth living?

I’m not giving up – I’m back at it and hoping that next week will have a great weight loss. Hopefully.

So here’s where I’m at with the numbers:

Week Five:

Weight LOST this week: 0 (boo)

Weight Lost to date: 15.5

Weight left to Lose: 84.5

First Goal: 10 pounds (Reward: Magazine subscription) – DONE April 5/12 (ordered subscription to Vanity Fair)

Second Goal: 20 pounds (Reward: New perfume)

Third Goal: 30 pounds (Reward: Sephora!)

Fourth Goal:  40 pounds (Reward: Cute flats)

Fifth Goal: 5o pounds (Reward: Some new clothes)

Sixth Goal: 60 pounds (Reward: New Glasses/Sunglasses)

Seventh Goal: 70 pounds (Reward: Massage)

Eighth Goal: 80 pounds (Reward: Get my hair done)

Ninth Goal: 90 pounds (Reward: Weekend away with my girlies)

Final Goal: 100 pounds – GOAL WEIGHT! (Reward: An overpriced, obnoxious handbag)

Low Carb Weight Loss – Week Four

12th April 2012

Here’s how I did this past week:

Double Woot!

Feeling really good – have caught up on so much sleep that I almost feel guilty about it. Almost.

I’ve gone from eating crap and junk food and a TON of sugar to eating none of that. In the last four weeks, I’ve eaten a TON of salads. My salad of choice? Mixed greens, cucumber, peppers, tomato, chicken breast, a bit of feta and a tbsp of olive oil. Did I mention that I’m DROWNING in how much water I’m drinking? 2-3 litres a day if not more – the only downside to that is I spend a lot of time going to the bathroom. TMI?

Oh, and it’s been 18 Days since I’ve had a Diet Coke or Starbucks or any coffee. I’m the first to admit that I’m SHOCKED that I’ve made it this far. Miracles do happen.

This weekend, I’ll be celebrating Orthodox Easter, so it will be a bit of a bummer having to avoid all the delicious Greek foods that my mom makes for every holiday, but I’m going to suck it up, try to avoid the fattening stuff and stick with chicken and salad.

So here’s where I’m at with the numbers:

Week Four:

Weight LOST this week: 3.5

Weight Lost to date: 15.5

Weight left to Lose: 84.5

First Goal: 10 pounds (Reward: Magazine subscription) – DONE April 5/12 (ordered subscription to Vanity Fair)

Second Goal: 20 pounds (Reward: New perfume)

Third Goal: 30 pounds (Reward: Sephora!)

Fourth Goal:  40 pounds (Reward: Cute flats)

Fifth Goal: 5o pounds (Reward: Some new clothes)

Sixth Goal: 60 pounds (Reward: New Glasses/Sunglasses)

Seventh Goal: 70 pounds (Reward: Massage)

Eighth Goal: 80 pounds (Reward: Get my hair done)

Ninth Goal: 90 pounds (Reward: Weekend away with my girlies)

Final Goal: 100 pounds – GOAL WEIGHT! (Reward: An overpriced, obnoxious handbag)

Week Three

5th April 2012

Here’s how I did this last week:

Woo Hoo.

I haven’t had a Diet Coke or Starbucks or any coffee or caffeine since before March 26 – 11 Days! That may not sound like a big number, but it’s huge for someone who drank a ton of both, daily.

Since quitting both, and cutting out starches and junk and things with sprinkles and other things that make you salivate, I’ve had zero heartburn, zero bloating and I want to sleep again.

Bye insomnia.

Yes, I still dream of cold Diet Cokes, and cupcakes – all the time. And yet, I haven’t indulged once – it’s a whole lot of chicken and huge salads and tons of veggies for me. Also, water is the only thing I’m drinking, except for the occasional mineral water.

I feel really good, and maybe even proud of myself and it’s been ages since I could say either.

Week Three:

Weight LOST this week: 3

Weight Lost to date: 12

Weight left to Lose: 88

First Goal: 10 pounds (Reward: Magazine subscription) – DONE April 5/12 (ordered subscription to Vanity Fair)

Second Goal: 20 pounds (Reward: New perfume)

Third Goal: 30 pounds (Reward: Sephora!)

Fourth Goal:  40 pounds (Reward: Cute flats)

Fifth Goal: 5o pounds (Reward: Some new clothes)

Sixth Goal: 60 pounds (Reward: New Glasses/Sunglasses)

Seventh Goal: 70 pounds (Reward: Massage)

Eighth Goal: 80 pounds (Reward: Get my hair done)

Ninth Goal: 90 pounds (Reward: Weekend away with my girlies)

Final Goal: 100 pounds – GOAL WEIGHT! (Reward: An overpriced, obnoxious handbag)

Week Two

29th March 2012

Just weighed myself this morning – here’s how I did using the gems:

Woo.

What did I do differently this week? I cut out Starbucks, Diet Coke, bread, pasta, and junk. I’ve also been drinking at least 8 glasses of water each day.

I’ve been eating lean proteins, tons of veggies and salads with 1tbsp olive oil & vinegar as dressing, low GI fruits like apples and berries, and Greek Yogurt.

It’s working and I’m spreading out my meals so I’m not hungry. The key really is to eat protein with every meal and snack.

The hardest part really has been cutting out the Starbucks trips and the Diet Cokes. However, after watching Hungry for Change online, I just can’t drink another Diet Coke – I like my brain cells too much.

I highly encourage you to watch it – it’s online for free until the 31st of this month (Saturday) – just enter your name and email and you can watch the movie here: http://www.hungryforchange.tv/

This week, I’m determined to start working out!

Week Two:

Weight LOST this week: 6.5

Weight Lost to date:  9

Weight left to Lose: 91

How did you do this week?

Weight Watchers Week One And 100 Shiny Gems

22nd March 2012

Ola.

Hope you’re all enjoying the gorgeous weather out there.

So, before I talk about my first week back on the Weight Watchers, I wanted to blog about this great idea I read about that I am now going to borrow for my own weight loss.

I want to give credit to the blog/site that I saw this on, but I honestly cannot remember where I saw it because it was ages ago.

If I do find it, I promise to come back and give due credit – in the meantime, whoever thought of this, thank you and you’re very clever.

When you have a lot of weight to lose, it can be extremely overwhelming and perhaps, slightly depressing. So, having a tangible way of looking at how much you’ve lost, in terms of actual numbers, can help make it seem less overwhelming.

I hope anyway.

Introducing: The Jars of Weight Loss. The Gem Jars. The Gem Jars of Weight Loss. I have no idea what to call these, clearly.

You take two jars.

First jar is the total amount of weight you want to lose, mine was filled with 100 little plastic gems – thanks dollar store. (you can use marbles, stones, pennies, diamonds, whatever) 

Second jar is for the weight you do lose.

As you lose weight, you move the gems into the pounds lost jar. Eventually, if you work your butt off, you’ve moved all the shiny, plastic gems into that jar.

I just love this idea, because seriously, who wants to look at that empty jar? Not moi, so I’ll be posting a pic of my jar every week.

SO, how did my first week back go?

Weight LOST this week: 2.5

Weight Lost to date:  2.5

Weight left to Lose: 97.5

I lost 2.5 pounds in my first week back. It’s alright but I know it could have been more – this isn’t 2.5 lbs of working my ass off. If it was, it would have been higher.

But any weight loss is a win, right?

For this next week, the goal is to exercise and to stick to the plan 95% of the time.

How was your week? If your following along and/or also working to lose weight and get healthy, please leave a comment below with your link so I can come visit. I’ve decided to get rid of the linky for now, but I still want to support you so let me know. If you’re interested in Weight Watchers and want to know more, I wrote a post about the program yesterday with deets on how the whole thing works, so feel free to check it out.

(FYI: None of the Weight Watchers posts are sponsored.)

Weight Watchers Points Plus 2012 – The Program

21st March 2012

I just started back on the Weight Watchers, (my first week’s weigh-in will be posted tomorrow), because after waffling on what program to do, I’ve decided this is the one for me. Since I get so many visitors asking about Weight Watchers, I wanted to share a post with some details about the new Weight Watchers Points Plus 2012 program.

The Basics:

  • Based on your current weight, you get a daily PointsPlus target. This number will get smaller as your weight goes down.
  • Everything you eat and drink has a PointsPlus value.
  • You get 49 additionally points each week, which you can choose to use or not use.
  • You can earn more points every day by exercising. The weekly goal to start is to earn 14 points each week.
  • Track it all either on using their paper tracker or online (their online tools are not free, fyi).
  • You can choose to attend meetings for additional support (these are optional but highly encouraged).

Daily Food Goals:

As with any balanced diet, you need to aim for a certain number of servings of each food group – the paper trackers are great for keeping track of how many servings you’ve had.

  • Lean Protein: 2 servings a day – like 3oz of chicken or 1/2 cup of beans (Personally I eat more protein that that, especially if exercising).
  • Fruits and Veggies: 5 servings a day – 1 cup of lettuces of 1/2 cup of other veg.
  • Low Fat Dairy: 2 servings a day  (Serving sizes really depend on what you’re eating – for example, milk vs. yogurt vs. cottage cheese)
  • Whole Grains – They don’t really specify a total number of servings but
  • WaterAt least six glasses of water a day – They call it liquids and include milk and diet pop in that number, but I ignore all that and count water only. Milk really counts as dairy anyway.
  • Vitamin – They encourage a multivitamin daily.

POWER FOODS:

  • Although you can technically eat whatever you want to eat on Weight Watchers (as long as you keep track of your points), they do really suggest that you stick with “Power Foods”. Power foods are basically the healthier options that any dietician will encourage you to eat – lean proteins, fruits and vegetables, whole grains, low fat dairy, etc. The best thing about the Power Foods is that they are more filling and use up less points, so it’s a win all around.
  • Prior to this updated Points Plus 2012 program, Weight Watchers stated that most fruits and vegetables carried a 0 point value – so technically you could eat as many as you want and they wouldn’t count. Obviously, this was flawed because fruits and vegetables still have calories, so you definitely have to keep track of them. Now, with Weight Watchers Points Plus 2012, they suggest that you eat about 5 servings of fruit and/or vegetable servings a day, which makes much more sense in the end. The starchier veggies like potatoes and corn do not have 0 point values however, so you have to remember that.
Exercise:
  • As anyone will tell you, exercise is key when you want to lose weight, and Weight Watchers is no exception.
  • You can earn points for working out (the number depends on  your weight, the amount of time you worked out and the intensity) – you get a chart when you sign up that will give you those amounts.
  • Your starting goal is 14 points earned each week.
  • Each activity point you earn equals one food point – so you can choose to eat those or not.

Pointers for success:

I know a lot of people on Weight Watchers, so I’ve read and heard some great advice for success and meeting weight loss goals. These aren’t rules or anything, just things that work for some people on the program.

  • Although you can technically eat whatever you want, eat healthy and mindfully so that you’re actually eating well and losing.
  • Make sure to eat your daily points in full every day.
  • Cut out white flours, sugar and salt as much as possible.
  • Drink water as your only beverage. If you feel bloated, add a slice of lemon to your water to help.
  • Don’t use the additional weekly 49 points regularly – only use them only on rare occasion when you have a party or event.
  • Do some sort of daily exercise.
  • Even when you do earn additional points from exercise, don’t use them.

*

Are you on Weight Watchers? What is your best advice for success? What do you do with your weekly points and earned activity points – save them or use them? Would love to hear about your weight loss is going.

(Please note: I don’t work for Weight Watchers – I’m just someone trying to lose weight gained from babies and burgers.)

 

March To Blogher – Weight Watchers Points Plus 2012

15th March 2012

Ok, so I’ll be honest and say that I was actually going to call this post “March to Blogher – Fat Shame & Bad Skin”.

Why? Because right now, I don’t know what is happening with my skin – it is awful. I never had acne in high school, and NEVER this bad except for the last few months. It is almost worse than being overweight. Almost.

And the fat shame should be pretty obvious.

Every year at this time, when winter is on the way out and spring is arriving, I get this feeling of dread because I know it’s not going to be as easy to hide behind one of my million cardigans. My beloved cardigans (yes, I have an obsession) have become a way to hide my fat. They’re part of the uniform – wide leg jeans, long t-shirts, and a long ass, huge cardigan. I pretty much wear the same thing every single day. As someone who LOVES clothes, and loves shopping for clothes, this KILLS me. My husband used to take me on trips to Toronto and Ottawa to shop at my favorite stores, because we didn’t have them in our smaller city. Now, when we go away and do some shopping, I don’t go into a single store that doesn’t have kids’ items. Not one. They remind me of my old self and what I desperately miss.

  • I miss shopping for myself and buying myself things I like, and not just things that will cover me up the most.
  • I miss jumping and running with my kids and thinking about having fun with them, and not ‘what do I look like right now’ and ‘I hope no one sees me’.
  • I miss seeing someone I know from my past and being happy about seeing them, rather than thinking about how they’re probably shocked at what I look like now.
  • I miss looking in the mirror and actually seeing myself, rather than never really making eye contact. I’ve mastered looking THROUGH the mirror.

I could go on forever, but I hate talking about this stuff, because I don’t want pity, and I never want to come across like a “woe is me” person because that’s just not really me. I put myself here – I totally get that. This is the result of eating poorly and not exercising for years – I know this. However, if I’m ever really going to do this, I have to be honest with myself, and I have to stop telling myself that I can’t do this. This is my biggest downfall. At some point, being mean to myself has to get old, no?

And so……

After reading about so many of my friends succeeding on the Weight Watchers plan, I can’t ignore it. This plan makes the most sense for long term success, and I have to stop caring about what other people are doing to lose weight and focus on the end goal, which should just be about my own personal goal. If I keep comparing others’ successes to my failures, I’m going to have to move into my closet permanently. I don’t want to do that – it’s dark in there.

So Wednesday evening, I went back to Weight Watchers AGAIN, and told them that I wanted to sign up and start fresh, and I took my older sister with me. The Weight Watcher ladies put me in my place as soon as I tried to be negative about myself, so thanks for that Weight Watchers ladies. They weighed me and as I already knew, I need to/want to lose 100 POUNDS – that’s the goal. And now that I was weighed on a Wednesday evening, I plan to go every Wednesday, which works great because I’ll be able to blog results on Thursdays.

For those of you who have never been to Weight Watchers, the sign up is very easy. You go in, you are immediately welcomed by someone who is also on the program. You sign up and/or pay for your week, and then they weigh you. It’s a very nice and comfortable environment and they are very discreet about your weight. They are encouraging and very nice and extremely helpful and knowledgeable. According to your weight and some other numbers, they will tell you how many points you can eat each week. You are given lots of reading material and you get new informative Weight Watchers Weekly inserts every week. They also have tons of extras available for purchase, like cookbooks, magazines, food, etc. Honestly as long as you get all the weekly materials, all you really need above that, is the calculator that will help you calculate points of everything you eat. The best $10 you can spend I think.

So there’s where I stand – I guess I’m a bit behind since it’s mid-March but in the big picture, who cares really.

Are you on working hard to get to your best self for Blogher in August? Maybe you blogged about healthy eating, or workouts or maybe even Weight Watchers. Whatever it may be, I would love it if you linked up your post below, so that we can come and support you and see how you’re doing!!

March to Blogher – Setting Up Goals and Rewards

8th March 2012

If you have no idea what March to Blogher is about – please check out the first post here.

*

I’m going to talk about how the first week went below, but first, I decided to offer myself some incentives.

The fact is even when you have people supporting you, if you can’t get over that voice in your head telling you can’t do it, you won’t.

Let’s just say that for me personally, that voice is STRONG. I’m such a self-doubter in the weight loss thing, and it’s my biggest downfall by far.

So, I thought that perhaps if I gave myself some goal/reward incentives it might help.

I’ve seen other bloggers do this on their blogs when trying to lose weight and I thought it was a good idea, so here goes.

Personal Goals: 

  • First Goal: 10 pounds (Reward: Magazine subscription)
  • Second Goal: 20 pounds (Reward: New perfume)
  • Third Goal: 30 pounds (Reward: Sephora!)
  • Fourth Goal:  40 pounds (Reward: Cute flats)
  • Fifth Goal: 5o pounds (Reward: Some new clothes)
  • Sixth Goal: 60 pounds (Reward: New Glasses/Sunglasses)
  • Seventh Goal: 70 pounds (Reward: Massage)
  • Eighth Goal: 80 pounds (Reward: Get my hair done)
  • Ninth Goal: 90 pounds (Reward: Weekend away with my girlies)
  • Final Goal: 100 pounds – GOAL WEIGHT! (Reward: An overpriced, obnoxious handbag)

A couple of these may change or get switched around, depending on when I actually reach them. I’ve also been promised a shopping extravaganza when I reach my goal weight, so that’s some additional incentive for me to do this, once for all.

*

So, what has happened in the last week?

It was a bit of a lunchbox letdown.

I wasn’t 100% prepared to start on Friday, because I didn’t have the groceries I needed. Big mistake of course. And with the husband gone for two weeks on business, I was kind of exhausted by the end of his trip which coincided with this past week. Excuses, excuses I know.

A bigger problem I had, is that I had some issues with some of the foods that I was supposed to eat. Following the dietician’s suggestions from last week, I tried to eat from Canada’s food guide and stick to the food groups. However, all of the fruit that I ate (except for bananas) gave me unbearable heartburn and acid reflux. It’s not the first time that has happened, but it usually involved drinking juice and not eating the fruit. I also had a lot of stomach pain/bloating, etc (I will spare you the details), when I ate starches and dairy. I don’t really know what’s going on but I had to basically avoid all those foods in order not be in pain. It was weird and uncomfortable, to say the least.

So, for this week, I think I’m going to have to switch the plan up a bit. I still plan on eating healthy and drink a ton of water, but I’m going to focus more on protein and vegetables and see how I feel. Since I’m deviating a bit from the original plan, I’m still unsure on whether I should in fact count calories or keep track of how much I eat using Weight Watchers points (small confession here: I’m actually an online WW member).

Uncertainty does not bode well for me clearly, so I’ll push the restart button and go from here.

*

I’m adding a linky below as I will each week. I would love for you to link up so that I can stop by your blog and support you on what you’re doing to get healthy. You don’t have to be following a certain diet or anything like that – it’s just about supporting each other for these next five months before Blogher NYC!!! If you’re not going to Blogher, you are more than welcome too!!
