11:32 am - Starting Paper Control

Yesterday I set my timer for 15 minute intervals and worked on paper clutter in the office and on my desk. I really was surprised at what I accomplished. It doesn't look like much but both rooms already feel a bit lighter overall.

12:12 pm - Time For Re-fueling

While I've noticed nobody has posted to this community since Oct of 08; I am hoping communication will start with it again. Having just found you, I am totally motivated to start completing projects I have told myself I would work on and haven't done. My house seems buried with paperwork..two rooms in particular so I am going to take at least 10 minutes per room each day my husband is at work and see if I can catch up. I will also need to start alloting time for working out and working on volunteering with Operation Christmas Child. I will tell you more about myself later should anyone respond and join me in helping this group come alive again!

Alright, so, I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this, but I feel others may have experienced this, so...Over the past year, I have healthily dropped 20 pounds, from 140 to 120 ( I'm 5'4) but if anything I feel physically and also when I look in the mirror and at photos that I am bigger than I was/felt at my highest weight...is weight loss flipping the crazy switch in my head or was i just in denial over my size before? Can I find a way to bring myself to see positive changes?

9:41 am - Hello!!!

Okay, I am back and I am determined. I am going to be working in a clinic, and I think I should be a good role model for my coworkers and customers. I've slacked off for far too long, and while I am still eating healthily, I feel like maybe I am lacking. I was eating all natural and whole foods, but it seems like for a few weeks there, although they were vegetarian meals, I was eating some frozen dinners at work, and I do not want all of these chemicals and preservatives in my body. It is Monday, and I am determined to food log every day this week. I'd be really happy if you guys would try to as well!!! :D

Also, I was away for a while, so my kitchen was fairly bare when I returned - went shopping last night: grocery listCollapse )
Okay, so that's it for two weeks unless I need fresh produce. I've been reading a book that promotes all natural ingredients and buying as much in season/organic as possible, due to higher quality/better flavour making you less likely to want to eat junk, and helps you be more in tune with your body and what it needs. My tastes have changed a lot. I don't like too many sweets, it makes me feel parched and gross. I went out with a friend yesterday and we had coffee, we tried to split a gingerbread loaf slice and I gave him all of my frosting because it was icky.
Anyway, food log for today:
breakfast (just had it)
slice of whole wheat french bread with a bit of brie and basil on it
some yoghurt

I already planned lunch and dinner

rice with curried vegetables

leek soup

I think I posted the leek soup recipe before...it's amazing

Anyway, how has everybody been? I saw writing in here picking up for while, and I'm so sorry that I just haven't had the motivation to jump in and post as well, I'm going to be really strict with myself this week though, my new job is going to be a much longer commute and I need to stay focused for it.

4:05 pm - hello


Hey everyone,
I recently started the G.I diet (well 90 % G.I, 10% me!) and have decided to document everything on my lj.
I'd like to get comments or ideas from you...
Wish me luck!

Still hanging here! I haven't been able to post recently, there's still no internet in my new apartment and I started my new work training period. My friend talked me into quitting my food diary, now I'm just trying to keep my eating under control without worrying too much. It's hard not to worry about it, though ^^; My weight is relatively stable, varying between 112 and 115 pounds. I still fail at eating enough fresh fruits & vegetables, but I'm working on that.

one slice black bread
strawberry preserves
one egg
a small tomato
1/4 a white onion
bit of cheddar
vanilla chai tea

Here's a novelty idea...and a healthy one too.

Real food week.

For one week (starting Saturday), everyone should ban anything that contains stuff that is not found in nature. If you cannot pronounce the name, you will not put it in your body. If you do not know what it is, it shouldn't go in your body.

Cheese - yes
Meat - yes (if you eat meat)
Whole grains - yes
Fruit - yes
Vegetables - yes
Yoghurt - yes
Milk - yes

If it's a whole food. Kraft Macaroni and Cheese is not cheese and grains. Most of this canned, processed crap is not a whole food. Try it for just ONE WEEK and see how you feel. This doesn't mean you have to spend a bunch of money on organic or health food. You could buy a loaf of bread at Zeppole for two dollars that contains: water, flour, yeast, salt, and you could buy a bag of apples and a dozen eggs to go with that and have breakfast for a week (or two). You could buy whole wheat spaghetti in the bulk section at WinCo and a can of tomato puree and some nice vegetables to go in that tomato puree and have dinner for two days. Etc. Just give it a shot, and then tell me if you feel any different after cutting out all the junk your body does not need.

Delicious, very low cal, and just YUM! in general.

Limeade done with splenda

1 serving is:

1/2 lime squeezed, 1 teaspoon of splenda (add more if you wish), and either fizzy or still water, ice if you wish! The colder the better! :D

Less calories than Crystal Light, and without all the weird ingredients and odd aftertaste.

10:43 pm - confused..

It seems like lately i have been eating like absolute crap, eating whatever i want. Not good, or was it? I don't know, last week it was that time of the month.. After, i realized that i had lost like 5+ pounds. Not just water weight because my boyfriend and his boy noticed. What the hell!?!! I'm so pissed because i didn't do anything.. So how can i keep losing? Haven't been eating right, haven't been going to the gym.. How did that happen!? And what do i do now? I don't want to gain it back.. Should i just eat whatever i want within reason and stop worrying about food? I haven't not worried about food since about sixth grade.. I always think about what i'm going to eat, feel like shit if i eat badly, think about calories, food food food! My boyfriend thinks it's just that, that i didn't stress about it, so i lost weight from lack of stress. Was it because of that woman problem? lol What do you all think?

Hi everyone! I just joined and I thought I'd introduce myself! I'm Lori, I'll be 24 in about 2 weeks and I'm getting married in 4 months... My body fat percent is a little higher than I want it to be and I've gained about 15 pounds in the last two years... Plus, I have to fit comfortably in a wedding gown soon! Ack! My biggest downfall has been emotional eating and I am really going to try and get a handle on it... My goal for this week is to eat 5 fruit/vegetables every day. My goal for the month is to eat oatmeal every day and work out 5 days per week! :)

current mood: busy

Ugh. For two weeks things were going great. I lost like 7 pounds, and things were good. Then this week. I can't stop eating. I don't even eat when I'm hungry (thats nothing new) and all I want is junk food. Ick.

Next week I'm fasting with my friend. Should be good, I need a cleansing of my body.
