Just another weblog

Size 16 Jeans.

This is actually amazing for me. I don’t remember the last time I went shopping for jeans, and I was a size 16! I think the last jeans I bought about 3-4 years ago were size 20. No name. No brand. Old. I wear them today, and the look huge around my legs.

And now, SIZE 16 PANTS? This is amazing to my brain. This opens my clothing shopping ALREADY to 2193821 more places. I am going to hold off on the buying new clothes.. I just needed another pair of jeans that FIT for my job.

Remember my post on the beginning of March? Where I promised myself I wouldn’t give in to not being motivated. I lied.

I haven’t worked out very much.. Specially this job. Its NO excuse. I don’t want excuses, and I wont let myself listen to this excuse anymore. I have been doing very good with my diet (except for yesterday were I SHARED a piece of cake with my friend), but, I haven’t been doing well with going to the gym. I’m going to be starting my gym power again tomorrow.

I didn’t weight myself last tuesday. I think we might as well just wait for this coming up tuesday, because I mean, its already saturday!

PS – I got this new excited ACAI thing for my smoothies. 🙂 I’m excited to try it out.

I see all these fitness blogs, and health food blogs making these amazing looking oatmeal breakfasts. Oats in a jar! EVERYTHING. Baked oats!

I decided to make my own.

So, mine looks good no? I have pumpkin oats, 1/2 sliced banana, and a small tablespoon of PB. Now you ask, how did it taste? IT TASTED SO BAD. I gagged through 70% of it. I decided in the end just to eat the toppest layer of banana with some peanut butter. I ended up throwing the rest away.

Right after that.. I got sick all day. 😦

I did manage to go to the gym, and get 2 miles on a treadmill.

30 minutes treadmill.

I really felt like I had to puked.. I am hoping that was just today. Tomorrow I’m going to try baked oats.. I really want to like oatmeal! It all looks so good online. haha.

Weigh-In Three Tomorrow!

Update #9

20  minutes intense ellipictal

20 minutes running

20 minutes biking

So, in total I reached 6 miles! Biggest in a day I have ever had. MY TOTAL 12.5/2010. I’m quite happy.. I needed a good workout because I knew what I was going to eat tonight. ahah. I’m excited to reach 6 again tomorrow.. Maybe more?

Oranges! I don’t think I have had an orange for quite a bit. Note to self.. Regular oranges don’t really peel the same at Christmas Oranges. Oh well.. It was good. I’m so glad I’m eating all this fruit I had “forgot’ about.

DINNER. We had a giftcard to The KEG. Ugh, I love the Keg. I knew how many calories I was going to eat.. and I wouldn’t deny myself any good meats. I had steak, shrimp, and a twice baked potato.

I tried to eat some ‘healthy’ ice cream afterwards.. I don’t really like it at all. Soy products are not my cup of tea. 😦

I noticed I always talk about healthy eating, and OVEREATING, and EATING OUT. Its really all I do. I wish I had more control.. But I promise I am getting better.

I will allow myself ZERO excuses. I have used them all upl

Update #8

Saturday was a break day for me.. I didn’t go to the gym, and I *tried* to keep my calories under control, but in the end I dont know where I ended up. I went to the Cactus Club with my friend, her dad and her uncle. Lets just say I ate!

Today was MUCH better. I woke up early to go line up somewhere for a hockey game, but in the end, didn’t go. Thats good in a way! Saved me much unwanted calorie eating. CANADA FOR GOLD.

I did a little bit of shopping for fruit as well! I was running out, lol.

I started the day with a super good smoothie. Very filling too. Inside of it was a cup of yogurt, 4 frozen strawberries, 1.5 banana’s (i ate the rest..), and a nice spoonful of the new peanut butter I got. IT WAS SO GOOD. I miss making smoothies, and glad I did so today.

This is the peanut butter I got today… From Whole Foods. I’ve seen those ..’health’ blogs some girls have, and they always seem to have a thing for peanut butter! I saw this on one of the blogs, and it was a must by. Peanut Butter & Co! DELIOUS.

During the game I had about a 1.5 cups of pineapple. I was craving other things though… Pizza. Chicken Wings, Fries. A BURGER. The pineapple did me good though.. Ugh, I love pineapple. I need more now though..

For dinner I ate whatever again. I did have a few banana’s between breakfast-lunch-dinner. We had teriyaki chicken, white rice, and cream corn.

Tomorrow’s monday.. And then tuesday will be weigh in number two since I have started this blog! I hope it goes well.

Update #7

I almost didn’t get up and go to the gym today. I got there pretty late.. at 12pm. Compared to other days when I’m there first thing in the morning! But, I have been staying up way later. 😦

Elliptical Intervals – 35 minutes

BRISK walking @ speed 4 – 10 minutes

I had meant to walk longer, and work my way up to a jog but didn’t.  Over all I did another 3.5 miles. So that makes total 6.5/2010. Lets just say we still have a long way to go!

I’m still doing the fruit thing.. My grandma is worried I’m ‘starving’ myself, but I really don’t see it that way. From about when I wake up to 5pm (When we have dinner), I get my fruit.veg intake. Today I had an apple, banana, raspberries, and peaches. I basically just eat as much fruit as I want, and it is 100% a better intake then what I had been snacking on before (Chips. High Calorie Sandwichs. TREATS.) For dinner I had prime rib, a small potato, and a large carrot.

Afterwards I was CRAVING that DQ Blizzard. You know, a small blizzard is anywhere from 500-1000 calories. Thats seriously ONE WHOLE workout just to rid of the blizzard.

I ended up getting this guy which is 290 calories a bar. For now I’ll take it… Its better then the extra 450 calories DQ would have awarded me.

Update # 2

30 Minutes Elliptical

20 Minutes Running

So, the gym was quick again today. I really want to spend more then “1 Hour” there, but I had to rush home to look after the puppy. Excuses eh! The elliptical is getting pretty good, I love that workout. According to the machine I had burned about 300 calories, and I didn’t look at the running, but phew. I can’t run for the life of me. Tomorrow I think I might make the majority of my workout on the treadmill. I want to be able to run!

I haven’t weighed myself in about a week.. I am waiting til tuesday to do that. I really hope I see something different.. Even though I’ve been eating not as well, I am doing exercise which wasn’t part of the picture last time.

PS – Canada VS USA game was just disappointing. I wish Canadians did better! Ugh.
