Memorial Day has been healthy

Well, I ordered the dress pictured below and some new yellow box flip flops. I also ordered some Bermuda shorts and a blue dolman sleeved shirt to have  new for my beach trip. I'm getting very excited about my beach trip that begins on June the 7th. I am NOT happy about the lack of weight loss as a whole. But I'm still excited to go and spend time walking on the beach for exercise and trying to have a healthy beach trip with my family. The past couple of days have been great and I did a Jillian Michaels workout yesterday and I am going to purchase the 30 day shred, in an  attempt to do it every morning until we go to the beach. It has been exactly one month since starting nature throid and I am down a total of eight pounds. However, I do know that I can do better so it is time to pick it up. Hopefully I will be able to report a good amount of weight loss for the upcoming month.

School is out for summertime

Honestly, it scares me a little bit. Because with more freedom of time there is more room 2 overindulge. But I am too excited today about having basically 60 days to refresh and refocus for the next school year. I'm going out for dinner and drinks tonight with friends and I'm going to try not to over do it ;-) it is a sense of happiness when you drive out of the school parking lot and you know you have all summer off !!! I have lost the weight I gained over field days! I really don't want to mess the momentum I've created up, but on the other hand I do wanna relax and have fun for one night. I don't want to lose ground though so balance is key :-) I am so excited that I worked hard for two weeks and I was able to have a loss show up on the  scales. I don't want to mess that up again so I must remember that tonight. Celebrating sensibly ---- that is what I will be doing.

Great day

I'm not going to waste another day...

thinking is the most powerful tool and the treacherous enemy

Starting to realize that getting this new medication is only part of the key to my success. The problem I have been having is between my ears. I want to start thinking differently about the food I eat, and my comforts. I have to create a different mindset toward health,  well-being and also i need to shift from seeing being disciplined as torture. When things got difficult over the past couple of weeks I turned to eating fattening food and filling up on it. I think that my success will be in gaining control of my thoughts and so begins the next chapter...

20 days on Nature-throid

It has been 20 days since starting nature throid. I can tell a huge difference, and I know that it is helping my metabolism there is no doubt. I have more energy and the overeating I have done has not  amounted to much weight gain. I have blocked my success with stress eating :with all these things going on here at the end of the school year. But, I have been working out really great this week and I'm feeling so good- and isn't that really important? I think that the future for me is going to include a much fitter & thinner version of myself. I'm excited and l  must shift  my mentality in the area of freedom when it comes to eating or over eating or consuming more than one alcohol beverage with is freedom to want to make healthy choices!  It is amazing how everything works together mind, body spirit, and I'm determined to strike a balance that I'm currently getting closer to. I plan on weighing on sunday and hopefully the goal is to be back to what I had lost down 2 in the first 10 days of taking nature throid. This week I ran and did a spin class ,I did Zumba on Tuesday. Today is my son's graduation and the best thing for me to do is try to consume under calorie goal. But isn't that just it? We must continue to set goals ----- for it is the small choices and consequences that add up to the life we lead.

Field days are over!!!!!!

Well, the hardest part of the school year is over.  Field day for me is a 3 day marathon that I dread for months. I slipped back into some comfort eating to soothe my nerves but im putting it behind me and moving forward.  I'm ready to get back to the disciplined way of eating that I had started with my new medication.  I believe i can achieve my goal of having a fit and thin body. BELIEVE & RECEIVE!  I CAN AND I WILL! Happy mother's day to any moms reading this blog :-)

Rough couple of days

I ate too much yesterday and today. But I'm still experiencing more energy. I have a lot on my plate figuratively as well. I am a physical educator and this week I have field days (3days) and I'm going to be preparing for them then running them. I will be like a new person when this week is over :-) I will not give up - I will try harder tomorrow.

Successful Saturday

I woke up this morning and weighed - and yes! Im down another pound!  Im 5 pounds less than when i started taking Nature-throid.  I have been very careful to get healthy foods for the week ahead and I have given some food to my mother (which makes me feel good since she is living on a low fixed income).  When I got home I made crab salad :
Imitation crab cute up into little pieces,  cucumbers diced up very small,  1/4 cup ranch dressing,  1/2 cup light mayo and dill weed (teaspoon) --- proportions can change to your taste.  This it's a light snack or lunch.  low caloric and full of protein
Another thing to know is; I did not have any alcohol and the temptation was there for sure! Not only did I lay in the sun on my deck and listen to Hootie and The Blowfish on Pandora but my husband and I grilled out burgers --- well typically  this would be a  time we would hang out and have a few beers (talking,  chilling,  listening to music or a comedian). And on top of that my husband wanted tho have a beer really bad (Saturday wind down) for him.... but I remained strong and sipped a sparkling strawberry lemonade. While making this good choice today I was reminded about why I have started this journey.  I will see thin again!

Friday night

Friday slain! Boom - I took Groupride (spin class) & sweated buckets.  I resisted overeating and I'm feeling satisfied. I need to remember this feeling when I'm faced with temptation.  My plans for Saturday include  -;workout first thing - chores and grocery shopping mostly.  Only problem: when i get a chance to relax on my deck -- I will want a drink with alcohol -- old habit :-/  I'm going to get some light lemonade :-) - taking Nature-throid when i wake upavoiding calcium for 4 hours following dosage, drink plenty of water, stay activeGot this

A little self sabotage - :-(

it has been a rough couple of days. I'm feeling kind of down about my own choices --- I chose to have 2 Shocktop (beer) wed. And 3 ultras on Thursday.  Both evenings I told myself I wanted to wind down and relax - this week is t-cap testing! ! But the truth is -- this is just an excuse - I didn't go overboard but I know it is contradictory to weightloss ---- weakness be banished !!--- determined to make this a great weekend.
