hiatus

Posted by starangel82 on December 29, 2009 9:13 am | 0 Comments

i'm taking a bit of a break from writing on fatgirl.  note that i'm not taking a break from the diet, but taking a break from the blogging.  between fatgirl and rantings of a single girl, i was beginning to get a little frazzled.  since rantings of a single girl is my main blog, i wanted to focus on that a little more and ponder on how to keep fatgirl in the mix.

i still don't have an answer on how to do that so ideas are welcome.  i do know that i can't continue to manage two blogs at once.  i'm just not cut out for it, i guess.

as always, thank you so much for your support during the time of fatgirl.  i have really been shocked and humbled by the support you have shown me.  it's a wonderful feeling to know that people i've never met are cheering me on.  and don't worry... i'm going to keep on trucking even if i don't write everyday about it.

i'm bad... and i know it

Posted by starangel82 on November 9, 2009 3:57 pm | 0 Comments

i know i haven't updated in like a week or two now.  i've been under so much stress that i could scream.  of course, that means i haven't been eating the best either.... leftover candy corn, brownies, wedding cake, alcohol, etc, etc.  you get the picture.  i haven't been just over-eating on the bad stuff.  i've been eating my regular diet and still exercising.  i just know i'm not going to make any progress with the way i've been snacking.

that said, i won't be posting my food list, cause well, i'm just ashamed of it.  i should be doing better, but i'm not.  i guess tomorrow is another day...

ready, set, go!

Posted by starangel82 on October 19, 2009 8:09 am | 0 Comments

so it's time to get back into the game.  i have no idea if anyone reads this blog anymore, but i'm keeping up with things for me.  it's time for me to get going again after my surgery.  i feel healthy enough (and have my doctor's okay) to get back into the swing of weight loss things.  i am just supposed to be careful exercising and stop immediately if i get tired, dizzy, etc.  actually, that's probably good advice for anyone.

so i have a question for you healthy, active people out there.  i was reading the other day and the article said you really should do no more than 30 minutes of cardio a day.  but then combine that with strength training to acheive maximum weight loss.  i know strength training is important, but i though cardio was the best thing especially when you are trying to lose body fat.  anyone want to weigh in here?

so now, let's get down to business:

10/18/09

sunday
breakfast: slept through it.  oops
lunch: two scrambled eggs, whole grain wheat toast with sugar free raspberry jelly, homemade applesauce
dinner: grilled chicken breast, grilled squash, green beans
snacks: one serving of jelly beans
exercise: 30 minute stroll through my neighborhood

weight: 263 lbs (i gained back everything i lost after surgery (but i knew i would) plus a few pounds i gained while being lazy.  it's okay.  i'll get 'em back off.)

step up - step down

Posted by starangel82 on October 6, 2009 9:13 am | 0 Comments

i'm about ready to get back into the swing of things.  i've gained back every pound that i lost while i was sick.  i'm not upset by it, because i was pretty sure it was going to happen.  i mean, you stop eating for a week and half, then you start eating, it comes back.  especially if you aren't exercising.  like i said, it's not going to get me down though. just a fact of life.

so i plan to start walking again now that my incisions are pretty much healed and i have gotten most of my stamina back.  i'm going to start out on the treadmill just walking until i get tired.  no set time.  then i'm going to start walking outside as the weather permits.  i love walking outside in fall.  the temperatures are usually perfect for walking and the scenery is always so beautiful.  i'm also going to attempt to get back into pilates.  i've really missed doing that and once upon a time, it really helped my body.  so as my stamina gets better, i'm going to be adding that back in.

otherwise, i'm going to slowly start eating on a decent schedule again.  right now my diet is so out of sorts because i can only eat certain things... and i need more balance that i currently have.  so i can't wait to get started again.
