The good & bad of blogging

Wow, first a Saturday post and now an evening post 🙂

There are many good things about blogging, as well as a major drawback;

First, the good:
– It holds me accountable to goals that I set for myself.

– Allows me to get motivation from others who understand the struggles!
– Blogging gives me a place to vent and share personal feelings outside of relying on the same group of people I normally vent to, who I’m sure get tired of hearing me complain about the same struggles over and over again.

Now, the major drawback:
– Carlos reads my blog!!! I swear Carlos, no toot toot here! Ha – maybe I should put a password on these things; man! Sorry sweetie – that was TMI!

People I know actually read this thing?!!? goodness, I am a little embarrassed. I mean, I’m glad you all are reading, but I didn’t realize so many people would be interested in reading about this…
A new idea….one of my co-workers a month ago mentioned how she had read about these 100 calorie snack packs that I buy and how it would be a cost savings if I just made it myself. So I finally got around to it. Yep, I sat at the kitchen table counting out Cheez-it’s and put 100 calories worth in little bags. GREAT IDEA! I saved $5 and it got twice as much! With the financial crisis not looking any better, I’m willing to spend the extra 5 minutes counting to save. Carlos got a kick out of it, me sitting there counting! (The pic is pretzel goldfish & cheeze-its)

Oh, one more final picture… my new shoes. Not weight related but whatever, I was so excited to go to work this morning so I could wear them!
Until next time,
When you receive motivation and inspiration from me, pay it forward!

Toot Toot Toot – it’s good!

How about a Saturday post?

First an update…I gained 2lbs. EEEKKK…157 – oh well, trying to stay positive about it. Carlos keeps reminding me that muscle weighs more then fat (he is so good at helping keep me positive). I know this, and I know that my jeans I bought in May & June are too big. It is harder to accept and truly believe it. Some days are harder then others; and I’ve had a couple of hard days in a row. I am taking yesterday through Sunday off from the gym, hopefully that will give me the mental break I need and kickstart my mood on Monday. Otherwise these last 15 (or I guess 17 now) are going to be very very tough – poor readers, ya’ll are gonna have to help with a lot of motivation for me!

Okay, who out there gets their recommended fiber intake? No one? That’s what I was thinking. Take a look at the nutrition label of all the foods you eat in one day; chances are, only a few of them have fiber in it! Most of us don’t; and unfortunately, it is the best secret weapon we should have in our back pocket…or in our stomach for that matter! Fiber not only helps to keep your digestive track clean and moving, but also helps keep you full longer. Fiber helps to eliminate waste that could otherwise be stored in your body. It also helps prevent cancer and control cholesterol. So what are you doing still reading? Get your butt to the grocery store and get some of these foods that are high in fiber!!!

Recommended fiber amounts for women is 21 to 25 grams a day and for men is 30 to 38 grams a day.
1 Cup Black Beans – 15 grams
1 Cup Raspberry’s – 8 grams
1 Cup Peas – 8 grams
1 Cup Broccoli – 5 grams
1 Medium Pear – 5 grams
1 Cup Corn – 4 grams
1 Cup Strawberry’s – 3 grams
*Friendly disclaimer (Carlos, stop reading!): As your body adjusts to the new level of fiber you are consuming, you find yourself toot toot tooting…don’t worry – this will go away as you adjust. Also, drink water; fiber absorbs water so you will need to drink a little more when you increase your fiber intake.
