Eating Healthier

*this was typed last night*

I have been trying really hard lately to eat healthier. Now that I am back at work it makes it A LOT more easy to do so.
When I am not working I get bored, and what do I do when I am bored???....EAT
well at work I don't even get the chance to eat except on my lunch and breaks so if I make myself healthy foods, that is my only option.

By the time I get home and rest for a bit, then make and eat dinner its 9pm and there is no need nor time to snack on crap. I quite like it actually.

Today has been kinda snacky as we ended up buying some chips at Costco, but I did portion some out for myself instead of just sitting with the entire bag on my lap. Dinner was pretty good on the healthier front. It was basmati rice, breaded chicken legs (baked) and salad with light italian dressing, and a glass of milk.

I switched to basmati rice because of my PCOS. I am supposed to eat things that are part of the GI diet. I havent dont a good job sticking to it except the rice is one thing that I stayed with. It suggests eating brown or basmati rice instead of white, but I just CANT eat brown rice. It is absolutely disgusting. But I can eat this rice, and my husband prefers it to white so now its a permanent change.

I really have a lot of disappointment in myself right now. I just cant find motivation STILL!
Right now, me and a few friends go for a walk every sunday, but that is pretty much it for me. I am not sure why I cant get my mind to agree with itself, and get my body moving a little more. *sigh*

I am now working and I seem tonot be able to find energy. I am used to not working, so then going in for 9 hours a day I just dont have the motivation to do anything past making dinner when I get home. I just need to get my act together I guess.

Got Off My ASS!!

I finally got off my ass today and worked out!!!
I and so weak but I hope I can get my strength up again. I did the Wii Fit and burned 250 calories, mainly doing the yoga. I know its not a lot but its better than sitting my my ass like I have been.

Now I just need to make sure that I continue to do this because I am really glad that I did finally do it. Maybe I will do my Biggest Loser Wii game next.

I am Lazy....and a horrible blogger.

I think its been forever and a day since I posted......well I havent had a very good reason at all really. I guess just slacking.
I just got back from my last real vacation for the summer, and I think it is time that I focus on this whole weight loss thing.
I think I need to type up a schedule for myself and start following it, because without it I seem to slack.
Went to the grocery store today and now have my healthy foods.
I am moving my wii downstairs to start getting active again.

I really need to just get off my fat ass and do something!!!!

Not shaped like a box with boobs

So I haven't lost much, but I think that my weight is shifting a little. I have always said that my body shape was rectangle......not so much apple I guess because I have a long torso....but VERY rectangle.

I always wanted a waist.....or at least my hips to even be bigger, well now I have that!!

I was looking in the mirror today and was happy to see that I ACTUALLY had some form of a waist. Things look so much better on you when you are not shaped like a box with boobs. I always hates wearing things that are supposed to accentuate your waste and really it just pulls attention to your boxiness.

So now even though my body still sucks....I have something about it to be happy about and to work towards.

So i definitely got my walk in and the dog.
It was good.
I did it early enough so it wasn't too humid so it was nice.
My leg was a little sore but I pushed through it.

I think the morning is the best time for me to do it, after I eat breakfast. That way I don't put it off and "I'll do it later"

Because we ALL KNOW that "I'll do it later" really means, "I'm not gonna do it today"

I am now back from my cruise and it was WONDERFUL!!! and very well needed.

I will say that the entire time I did NOT watch what foods I was eating. If I wanted it, I ate it. That means that I had dessert every night after dinner.

I can say that I never over did it. If I couldn't finish a meal, I didnt force it, I just pushed it aside.

Also I can say that I did not gain any weight while on the cruise :)
My DH on the other hand gained 10 lb (he still only weighs 145 though)

Since being home though (returned home on the 16th) I have already lost 4lb. I think the cruise was the shock to my body that I needed.

So now that I am back I guess that means it is back to eating better and following the GI Diet again, as well as start being active.

I will take my dog for a walk EVERY DAY (instead of putting him in the back yard)
I will do my Wii Fit at LEAST 3X per week
