Word Up Wednesday

I was going to do wordless Wednesday but I have so much randomness to share today I figured I might as will just spew it all out in bullet points.
  • I did really good on my eating yesterday, until I almost had a food breakdown. It started with a handful of SpongeBob shaped Cheeseitz and ended with two small cookies before I walked away. Making lunches for the next day is my weak point. If I am good I brush my teeth first and put in my sexy retainer to keep me from eating, last night I snuck a few bad foods before kicking myself in the pants.
  • Someone asked if I would post all the Rules and I might but for now here are a few I am going to focus on today, slowly work up to all 20.
    • Rule 2  - Don't drink your calories - my weakness flavored coffee creamer. I mentioned that yesterday. Besides coffee I usually drink water, an occasionally tube of Nuun and more water. While I like Nuun and it helps me drink more water my ass is cheap, so plain water it is 90% of the time.
    • Rule 3 - Eat Protein at Every Meal -  Not to bad, just need to get creative.
    • Rule 5 - Eat 30 to 50 Grams of Fiver a day - good rule, but I will work up to this as I don't want a negative impact from to much fiber at once.
    • Rule 18 - Go to bed hungry - this one is tough for me, because then I wake up starving. I need to find a happy balance with dinner and bedtime.
  • It's official after running PDX RnR I qualified for Half Fanatics. You are now looking at member #2482. I accomplished this by running 3 halfs in 71 days. I didn't know if I should register then I figured why not. 

  • Working out and losing weight around a small child is a delicate subject. I start to get worried when my almost 5 year old likes to tell me what foods have protein in them and that fruit is much healthier then something else. She also told me today that if you eat a fiber tablet, which we do, that we need to drink water with it so it doesn't just expand in our stomach. I have no idea where she learns these things.  I hope I am teaching her healthy habits and not ones that she will use improperly at a later date.

  • 3 for 3 on workouts planned vs workouts completed this week. I like it when I am on a roll. 
What is your randomness for Wednesday?

  1. congrats on new half fanatic status!
    The fiber sounds rough- typically based on a 2000 calorie diet you only need 20-25--- if you're aiming to double that, I definitely agree with you that you have to do it slowly as to not create any 'intestinal discomfort'

  4. Congrats on being a half fanatic! I'm pretty sure I need to look into that myself.

  5. yay fanatic status! also, i think it sounds like you are modelling healthy choices for your child. let's face it: you're not the mom who never eats real food and drinks diet coke all day. that worries me, you know? but seeing as i have no kids, i don't get an opinion. unless someone asks. and i think it sounds like you're doing awesome. congrats. i was 30 before i learned the stuff she is spouting at 5.

  6. Congrats on being a fanatic! A thought on your kiddo - maybe just emphasize how yummy certain foods are? I often wonder how my eating habits would be different if veggies hadn't been a chore when I was a kid. My parents made me eat them because I was supposed to, therefore I was a brat and wouldn't eat them. Maybe I would be different if they would have just talked about the yummy foods? I dunno.

    1. Good point! I know we don't force her to take more the one bite of everything on her plate. I am not a fan of the clean plate club and I follow the rule of try it once....you might like it this time. As for veggies - well she will eat them in soup and will eat raw carrots. I figure that is a start. Just keep trying them as you never know. I even got her to try a bite of salmon last night. She didn't like it right now though. :)

  9. Congrats on your new Fanatic status! I qualified for it last year and was going to join - then just never got around to it. Maybe some day.

    I like your rules!!

    My randomness for Wednesday -- I didn't wear a bra to work, and I love it! Technically my dress has a built in sports bra, but it's not all constricting or anything, so still - kind of fun! ;)
