Enjoying my walks...

Hi Everyone,

The weather has been pretty warm over here, around 90ish every day. I have to wait until at least 5pm to go for my walks. You know my dogs can tell time and always just come and sit in front of me smiling - waiting to go for our walk usually sometime after 4pm and they won't stop until I say FINE!! Lets GO!! Well now the little Rat does the same thing. They learn fast.

The past month or so I have only been going for about 1 mile walks instead of my usual 2-3.5 mile ones I normally do every day. I just have been kind of pre-occupied with my thoughts and what is going on and - well - just plain didn't feel like it.

So Wednesday I said; come on furry girls - I'm gonna make you sweat your furry little asses off. We walked 3 miles and I picked a path that had at least 50% shade. They were all - woo this is FUN!!

Thursday we did the same thing. They were all - GUNG-HO! Only this time after about 1 mile; they were like - HMMM I don't remember, I thought it was more fun yesterday. They were panting, drewling, slowing down, and multiple stopping. LOL - but we finished and it was nice to be outside.

 Wednesday breakfast, scrambled eggs w/baby spinach, cheese and a little cottage cheese, tomato, avocado - too much sugar but it was good.
 Wednesday lunch, some jumbalya stuff hubby made for he FD. made with brown rice, mixed seafood peppers, onion, spices, and some sliced cucumber on a plate w a bit of hummus.
2 chocolaty treats after.
Wednesday dinner was a spinach salad w.some wings.
 Thursday breakfast, was pancakes w/peach natures hollow on top, berries and turkey bacon.
Thursday lunch, was some more of hubby's jumbalaya stuff w/some kale inside. I thought it needed something green. 1 chocolaty treat after.

I decided to have a shake for my snack instead of a meal. made w/water, MRM protein powder, a few berries, a little cocoa pwdr, coconut oil, peanut butter, ice and psyllium husks for fiber. = yum good.

dinner was some left-over steak from Hubby at the FD and some broccoli.
desert was some RediWhip and 1 protein bite.

My weight was at 150 this morning. That is 2 lbs over my low. As you go on doing this you will realize that this is normal for us women to fluctuate between 3 lbs. So don't freak out when this happens, just treat it as normal for us. But just make sure to not go over that 3lb window.

My thought for the day:

Pat Yourself on the Back

Pat Yourself on the Back, Positive QuotesWhen you do the right thing, enjoy it! When you take positive actions, enjoy them. After all, they are leading you toward positive results. Pat yourself on the back. Truly enjoy the fact that you’re making positive progress, and the negative temptations will have no power over you.

Keep on BFC ' n  :-)

  1. I enjoyed your description of the walking. I could just picture it and was laughing to myself while reading. :) Have a great weekend!

  2. I walked my Roscoe this morning for 45 minutes. It was nice out. Too hot now, in the mid 90's and so humid. I think I am going to start trying some shakes. What is the MRM powder and where did you get it. You probably said before, but I can't remember!! Hugs and Love!

    1. Go on my fav products page: http://purplerosy.blogspot.com/p/products-page.html
      There is a picture of it on there. I get it at sprouts but I think hubby said he got it at ralphs one time, it only has 1 gm of sugar and sweetened w/stevia and is much cheaper than Jay Robb.

Some tips if you are having trouble

  • First make sure that you are staying under the 15/6. 15 sugars and 6 servings of carbs for the whole day. Thats no more than 5 sugars and 2 servings of carbs per meal.
  • Track all of your sugar/carbs. Add everything from your meal together and count them that way.
  • Try to stop eating whole grain carbs after 3pm.
  • Make sure you drink lots of water.
  • Count everything that you put into your mouth. Even sauces - everything , check labels.
  • Make sure that you don't eat any artificial sugars. Check labels, if it says sugar free - look in the ingredients, look for....sucralose, aspartame, saccharine in the ingredients. Those are BAD!
  • Going #2 is a big problem when a lot of people start the BFC. I have solved that problem with Clear Benefiber in my morning coffee and a scoop of Super Seed w/water in the afternoon. (you can buy the super seed on Amazon.com it is the cheapest).
  • Choose your carbs wisely. Try to pick the carbs that will give you the lowest count of carbs, sugar and calories and the most fiber.

I hope this helps.
