I have actually been stuck at 13 lbs weights lose for a week or so. Most of this is due to the fact that I haven't been exercising much outside of walking around. Plus last weekend Val and I didn't have the kids and we went out to eat a couple times. I wanted to get something that I haven't eaten in a long time. We went to Bar Louie in the arena district with some friends and I decided to have a reprieve night. I got a burger (gasp!)with the bun. and fries. and a coke. Sue me. Was it the best choice for me? Yes it was. :) It was orgasmic. We'll not literally. But you know what I mean. I may need to go back to telling everyone what I eat every day. I think being lax on that has made me less accountable, and has allowed me to make not so good choices. I mean I'm not eating whole tombstone pizzas anymore, but I could be making better choices.
Pretty sure I need more fiber in my diet. I'll let you guess what that means. I mean, I'm not getting bread or anything with wheat, which is where I get most of my fiber normally. I'm told vegetables have it in them. If only they didn't taste terrible It would be easier. I have been sporadically taking Juice Plus, but Val says even If I took it every day I would still need to eat more fruits and vegetables which is crap because I am told each time I take the recommended amount of Juice Plus that I get like 2 servings of fruits and 2 servings of vegetables. So if I take enough for 10 servings of fruits and veggies, I only need to take ....(counting on fingers)...like 40 capsules a day? I would almost rather do that. Then I can spend my calories on things that kind of taste good.
**Disclaimer: Not everything I say on this blog is 100% truth. A lot is intended to be comical. I am not exactly as ignorant about food as I come across. But I am serious about how much I dislike the taste of most vegetables. I can't help it. Val knows more about this stuff than anyone I know so, I know what I should be doing.**
Went clothes shopping today. Me and Caleb. That shows you just how awesome our jobs are. :) I tried on some shorts and a short sleeve button up. I can ALMOST wear a large shirt and be comfortable. Pants and shorts are always weird at places with nice clothes. I have big thighs so I have to go with bigger pants sometime because of this fact. I can wear size 36 jeans, but the 38 shorts fit today. Annoying. Here are some photos, I need to lose a little bit more weight to feel comfortable in this shirt. It starts pulling apart in the middle because of my boobies (which shouldn't be there).
I bought this outfit anyway.
So this day was kind of a wake up call to hit this weight loss thing hard. Really be consistant with some exercise, eating small frequent meals, staying under my caloric intake, drinking lots of water, and trying to force some vegetables
