Re: Getting Healthy Checkin

  • Weight Loss Strategy: Weight Watchers
    Total Weight Loss Goal: 30lbs
    Lost This Week: 2.4lbs
    Total Weight Lost: 3.6lbs
    Accomplishments/Rants/Thoughts:

    I bought a German chocolate cake at the grocery store that is 10 points a slice. Bad move!

    What will you do differently next week:

    Try to add more veggies and cut more carbs. The way I've been eating is not really fun...small amounts of junk.

    Recipe/Tips to Share:

    I try to just shop the perimeter of the grocery store, so as to avoid processed foods. It works most of the time. ;

    GTKY: If you win the lottery, what is one thing you would buy/do/invest in?

    If I won the lottery, DH and I would buy land and build a house in the country.

    - Total Weight Lost: up 0.7
    - Accomplishments/Rants/Thoughts: must track.  must track...
    - What will you do differently next week: still trying to run again - yesterday I made it 15 min total: 5 min walk warm-up, *20-40 seconds "run" (jog/powerwalk - 4.2 on treadmill) followed by 2 min walk* repeat.  My knee got pretty sore after just 20-40 seconds running, but my orthopaedic said this would happen
    - Recipe/Tips to Share: nothing today

    GTKY: If you win the lottery, what is one thing you would buy/do/invest in?
    hmmm - first thing I would do is hire an accountant and a lawyer!  (tithing 10% to my church would be second, and paying off debt (mortgage, etc...) for us and immediate family would be third)

  • How did you achieve your goal to live a healthier lifestyle this week?

    Pushed myself to go to kickboxing on days that I REALLY didn't feel like it

    What will you do differently next week?

    Avoid fast food completely, especially Wendy's spicy chicken sandwiches! I had two this week Sad

    Weight Loss Checkin: I've been avoiding the scale, I'm just paying special attention to how my clothes are fitting me and I have to admit that the ones I'm wearing comfortably today were a little snug last week so that's good!

    Weight Loss Strategy: Cut out fast food, fresh juice from the juicer, kickbox at LEAST 3 days a week.
    Total Weight Loss Goal: I just want my clothes to fit more comfortably
    Lost This Week: Don't know but pants are less snug today
    Total Weight Lost: Dunno
    Accomplishments/Rants/Thoughts: I used to have nice, somewhat tight abs...lately I've developed some jiggle (probably from the holidays) so I'll have to work on that.
    What will you do differently next week: Avoid all fast food
    Recipe/Tips to Share: Instead of frying, consider baking some of your most loved dishes, it's not only healthier but often tastes better too!

    GTKY: If you win the lottery, what is one thing you would buy/do/invest in?  I would definitely have to get professional help as far as investing the money so that it would grow!

    Weight Loss Checkin:

    Weight Loss Strategy: Phentermine (since I have to wait until I have af to start TTC again and that could be a while, I'm going to use my pills until I get af to kick start this!)

    Total Weight Loss Goal: 25 more lbs, I think.

    Lost This Week: 5

    Total Weight Lost: Since I started back taking my pills last week, 5 lbs.

    Accomplishments/Rants/Thoughts: Not eating much, but drinking a ton of water.

    What will you do differently next week: Probably keep on with this strategy.

    Recipe/Tips to Share: I use small plates for my meals. Y'know, like desert plates. Then I can't pack too much food on it.  

    GTKY: If you win the lottery, what is one thing you would buy/do/invest in?Besides the obvious pay off bills, I would put college tuition in an account for my daughter and a future child we may have.

  • Since I am in loss limbo right now, I decided yesterday that the best place for me to focus my energy is in taking care of my body and losing a little bit of weight. And then this popped up today. I guess it's a good sign.

     

    Getting Healthy Checkin:

    How did you achieve your goal to live a healthier lifestyle this week? I eliminated all but one cup of coffee this past week.

    What will you do differently next week? Try to go completely caffeine-free.

     

    Weight Loss Checkin:

    Weight Loss Strategy: Eliminate as much processed food as possible and fit in more exercise.

    Total Weight Loss Goal: 15 lbs

    Lost This Week: 0

    Total Weight Lost: 0

    Accomplishments/Rants/Thoughts: Nothing yet, since I just started focusing on this goal.

    What will you do differently next week: Try to add a yoga class, if my body is feeling up to it physically.

    Recipe/Tips to Share: Nothing today

    GTKY: If you win the lottery, what is one thing you would buy/do/invest in? We would probably build a house and do a big trip to all of the places we want to see. We'd invest too, of course, but we'd allow ourselves some pleasure.

    I went a little badge crazy...
  • Thanks for adding the healthy check-in section!

    Getting Healthy Checkin:
    How did you achieve your goal to live a healthier lifestyle this week? Made one of my new healthy recipes (shrimp tacos with lime crema), and exercised 4/5 weekdays.


    Accomplishments/Rants/Thoughts: I have had a lot of success with walking recently, and have come to love it.  I have been thinking about creating and tracking a little 'fitness/walking challenge' of some kind.  Nothing too extreme - something like a "60 in 30" Challenge, where the goal is to reach 60 points in 30 days.  Each point is earned by either walking 1 mile (fast-walk) or weight-training for 1 hour.  Would anyone be interested in joining me in this? I could find a way for us to track on the board.  I was going to post this idea in H&E, but that board is a lot less active with users.


    What will you do differently next week: Completely cut-out the processed soy products (luna protein bars) and replace with a fruit or nut snack.

    Recipe/Tips to Share: The one mentioned above for Shrimp Tacos

    GTKY: If you win the lottery, what is one thing you would buy/do/invest in?  DH and I would pay-off rental property and put in a pool at our current home.

    What will you do differently next week: Gym all five days before work, even if its just to watch the morning news and walk.
    Recipe/Tips to Share: I made all my lunches/dinners last sunday for two weeks.  I made four different dishes and divided them into twenty meals, put them in freezer-safe tupperware, wrote the points on them, and froze.  It has made life a billion times easier! 

    GTKY: If you win the lottery, what is one thing you would buy/do/invest in?

    Make sure everyone in my family is set up/secure.  Then, of the course, IVF.

  • Weight Loss Strategy: Weight Watchers

    Total Weight Loss Goal: 60 lbs

    Lost This Week: +0.2

    Total Weight Lost: 7.4

    Accomplishments/Rants/Thoughts: I'm frustrated at the gain, but I know it's small.  Hopefully I will have taken it back off and then some when I weigh in tomorrow morning.

    What will you do differently next week: Be more meticulous about tracking

    Recipe/Tips to Share: If you're on WW, label all of your foods with their points value as you put them away after buying them.  It makes choosing your meals and snacks way easier!

    GTKY: If you win the lottery, what is one thing you would buy/do/invest in? I would buy a new car.  I really hate my car and wish it would drive itself off a cliff.  Luckily once we have a baby, DH gets to drive it and I get the Element since it's easier to put a kid in the back seat.

  • Weight Loss Checkin:

    Weight Loss Strategy:  Exercise 3x minimum per week, eat healthier, track on MyFitnessPal
    Total Weight Loss Goal:  20 lbs
    Lost This Week:  2 lbs
    Total Weight Lost:  6 lbs
    Accomplishments/Rants/Thoughts:  The people I nanny for always have sweet treats - chocolate cake, raspberry danish - and they always tell me to help myself.  I need more self control!  I did get to the gym once, hope to go again tonight.
    What will you do differently next week:  Go to the gym earlier in the week so I don't have to play catch-up towards the end when I'm tired, bring more healthy snacks so I can munch all day and so I won't give into the sugary cravings.
    Recipe/Tips to Share:  Stuffed peppers - saute lean ground beef on the stove with taco seasonings (chili powder, chipotle powder, cumin, diced onions, minced garlic, one can of tomato paste), then mix in shredded cauliflower (instead of rice) and one can of drained black beans and diced cilantro leaves.  Cut and clean bell peppers, lightly rub with olive oil, and lay on a tin foil covered pan.  Stuff the peppers with the cauliflower, bean, and beef mix, top with sharp cheddar cheese, and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes, or until the peppers start seriously shriveling and the cheese melts.  Soooo good!

    GTKY: If you win the lottery, what is one thing you would buy/do/invest in?  We've had long discussions as to what we'd do if we won the lottery (we drove from Miami up to Boston - we had a lot of time to kill!), and we'd put money into trusts for our siblings, their children, and our future children.  We'd go on a great vacation with some of it, and invest the rest in commercial real estate.

    How did you achieve your goal to live a healthier lifestyle this week? We bought an elliptical for our basement gym!
    What will you do differently next week? Work out more

    Accomplishments/Rants/Thoughts: No alcohol all week and salad or fish every night, I feel awesome
    What will you do differently next week: Same as this week
    Recipe/Tips to Share: Honestly, just making a nice big salad with veggies, avacado, and a protein like fish or chicken, so good for dinner.  I have always been a healthy eater, I just don't exercise enough and drink too many calories.  Those two things must change.

    GTKY: If you win the lottery, what is one thing you would buy/do/invest in? Vacation, house, personal trainer, island...:)
    TTC #1 since Feb 2012 while dealing with Male Factor. Married 5 years. Mom to best dog ever.
  • Getting Healthy Checkin:

    How did you achieve your goal to live a healthier lifestyle this week? Pre-made a bunch of food after grocery shopping on Sunday. Egg muffins, black bean chili, zuchinni & squash side dish, salads. It made it easier to pack lunches and breakfast for DH and me both, so neither of us ate out for lunch all week. :)
    What will you do differently next week? Get off my @ss. I have been so freakin lazy lately.
    Weight Loss Checkin: n/a, don't own a scale. I pay attention to how my pants fit and take my measurements every few days.

    Weight Loss Strategy: Increase physical activity. I have a million ideas on Pinterest for AM workouts, just need to get on it! I would love to start doing more muscle toning with heavier weights. Total Weight Loss Goal: Just want to tone up. I have muscle, it's just hidden under some layers at this point.
    Lost This Week: n/a, I lost a couple inches off my measurements from last week.
    Total Weight Lost: n/a
    Accomplishments/Rants/Thoughts: I don't diet, I just eat fairly clean & healthy - it's a committment DH and I have made to each other, and I'm very proud of that. But the physical activity has been practically nonexistent since last August when I had surgery. I need to get over my slump and get my motivation back, stat!
    What will you do differently next week: Get to bed at a decent hour so I can get up to work out in the AM.
    Recipe/Tips to Share: If you can include a good source of lean protein in every meal & snack, you feel fuller and more satisfied, and therefore avoid that crash-hunger where you'll eat anything. Also, my go-to blog for healthy recipes is Kalyn's Kitchen. She creates the yummiest, healthy recipes and uses tons of pictures (helps motivate me to make them!) I tell everyone I know about her site.
    GTKY: If you win the lottery, what is one thing you would buy/do/invest in? Pay off student loans, car, house. Then save and/or invest a large chunk for future kids' college funds and our beach retirement. Then travel, anywhere!
