Back on Track with the Healthy Focus

Last night I was able to get back on track. After a big breakfast of egg beaters and bagel with cheese, a light lunch of progresso soup (wow it tasted salty this time) and a fiber bar, I was able to finish the day with 2 boca burgers on skinny arnold’s with a big tomato and no fat cheese.

And now I’m good to go this morning. Back in the groove. Back on track. Back in the saddle.

Having a “good” day makes it easy to get back on the horse. Ha ha.

Healthy Diet Motivation Went out the Window

Enjoyed a night out with friends last night and wouldn’t you know they made artichoke dip with mayo and philly cream cheese. At least I think that is what was in it. Baked and gooey. On triskets. Why oh why didn’t I stick to just 3 or 4 crackers and instead I had 3 or 4 at a time about 4 or 5 times.

Today is a new day. I’m back at it again. I can get my healthy diet motivation back again. Lean eating.

Dealing with the Pain of Arthritis? That’s Motivation

I have the early stages of arthritis showing up already in my hands. Avoiding bad arthritis is part of my motivation to have a healthy diet.

I want to lose the weight and keep it off because, just like the LA TIMES reports:

• If you’re overweight, try losing a few pounds. When you walk, your knee bears the pressure of five times your body weight, Gillespie says, so losing 5 pounds will take 25 pounds off your knee.

Twenty five pounds… that’s like two or three milk gallons right?

Just walked a mile

Having lost weight is not enough… I have to keep it off.

Just took the dog for a walk. Jogged a bit.  Then it started to sprinkle, then rain, then pour.

Turned around.  I had 3 miles in mind.  Maybe I’ll get 2 more in tonight.

Just keep tracking that chart

Filling in the weight and the dates once a week is helping me keep on track.
Just filling in the dates and the weights helps keep that slope heading down, not up.  Gotta maintain the motivation.

Have a new pair of shorts hanging outside my closet.  They’ll look good with a couple more pounds gone.

Had green beans, broccoli roasted in the oven for lunch.  Sweet potato for snack/dessert.  Yum!  Shorts. Here I come!
