Trip Up Tuesday



Ok, here I am...no trimmer but it is Tuesday so here goes:

Weight:

  • Too much to say right now. I have made the decision to call Jenny Craig as my lifestyle is really too hetic to cook/prepare all meals for myself. If I want to really want to be in control, I need to give the control to someone else. I need someone to prepare meals for me at least until the end of the semester, which is in June. Between looking for work, working extra hours tutoring etc. I simply do not have the time, energy or desire to cook for myself. Hopefully by being honest about it and formulating a plan for getting low fat meals will help me with my wieght loss goals.

Diet:

  • I really have chilled on eating out as much as usual and the fast food has come off the menu as a mainstay. I have only eaten at a fast food restaurnat about once or twice a week which is a MAJOR improvement for me! I must say the fact that they feed me twice a week at the group home is an improvement over driving through the drive through. I still need to work on portion control. I also did buy food and have been bringing my lunch to work every day for about two weeks now. I only get to eat what I pack so it has been good.

Exercise:

  • Does walking from the car into the shopping center count? I have been getting no real exercise but my goal is to get a pedmeter thingy. I have a watch that measures a bunch of stuff like calories burned, steps taken etc. and its still in the box so I would say its time to take it out and read the directions so I can use it.

Goals:

  • Go back to Jenny. (I have lost weight there before) Analyize lifestyle triggers and map out of plan of what I want to accomplish. My goal is to make an appointment for Friday and begin the program Sunday.

Awesome! You're well on your way to becoming healthier! And hey, it's perfectly fine to call Jenny for your meals, it's your perogative and SO much better for you than eating out. Keep it up!

I'd love to call Jenny, but then I don't know what I'd do with my family at meal time. Also, the 4 pans of brownie's that have gone through my in-law's house haven't helped over the last week.

Let us know how the watch thing works. I've been wanting to get something like that for when I go to the gym.

So glad to meet a fellow supertaster! I'm so sick of ppl who are like, "Just eat it anyway, you'll get used to it" ... while that is true for SOME things I eat, for the majority, it simply cannot be done because I cannot stand to eat the food. Then others think that if they don't tell me what's in the food and I can't see it, that I won't know. Still not true! I can take one bite and identify the offending flavor.
