Trick & Treating Myself

Monday, November 2, 2009 at 5:39 PM filed under Weight Loss postings
Halloween always kicks off the Season for Over-Indulgence. Each year, I buy candy for neighborhood trick-or-treaters. But, the number of kids that actually knock on the door is pretty tough to predict. And, I find myself stuck with a 3/4-full bowl at the end of the night. This year, I decided to purposefully buy candy that I don't really like -- Trick myself, rather than Treat myself. So, I filled my bowl with Mounds, Skittles, and 3 Muskateers, and stayed away from my favorites, Reese...

Weather or Not

Thursday, October 15, 2009 at 6:01 PM filed under Weight Loss postings
Searched "Seasonal Affective Disorder" on Wikipedia today. I think I have it. I miss Summer and sunshine. I've been having trouble motivating to exercise this week. I'm blaming it on a series of cold and rainy days. When I get home, I just want to hop on the couch, get under a blanket, and watch some stupid show on TV. But, my homepage has been harassing me again. It says, "it's been 7 days since you've checked in a workout." Again. So, I'm logging off now to fight traffic ho...

Hostile with My Homepage

I got up early today to workout after a fall off the ol' workout wagon. 8 days passed between my last workout and today. My longest stretch of laziness since I started using FitClick. I have no excuses. But, I swear the only reason I decided to workout this morning was because I was tired of looking at the highlighted "It's been 8 days since you've checked in a workout" message on my homepage. Each day, when I logged my foods, it just stared at me and taunted me. I thought, &q...

Move Over Martha

I'm trying to become a better cook. Just started using the Create new recipe feature. I love it. I added a bunch of my favorite recipes, and ones I had ripped out of magazines, but had yet to make. Last night, I pieced together 3 new recipes to make dinner. The entire meal took well under 30 minutes to prepare. FitClick calculated all of the ingredients, determing a 410 calorie total per serving (the exact amoun

Fill 'Er Up

Hit the road in my car every weekend this month. And, I am happy to report that I did not hit any fast food venues along the way. In the past, road trips have always been an excuse to stock up on snacks at 7-11 or stop at McDonald's for lunch. These days I'm packing a mini-cooler with my own beverages & treats. I brought some 100 Calorie Packs which I know are gimmicky (more packaging & more money). But, portion control is a must for any diet plan especially when it comes to snack foods....

Downward Facing Old Dog

Tuesday, August 18, 2009 at 1:19 PM filed under Weight Loss postings
Testing out some yoga poses & stretches to alleviate some lower back pain issues. I have had mild low back pain for the better part of this past year. I worked as a bartender part-time until recently. I always thought the pain was related to lifting I would sometimes have to do there (like changing kegs, etc). But, now a couple months have gone by, and the pain remains. I finally started stretching after cardio workouts which really helps. Now, I'm trying to go one step further and incorpora...

Chocolate Sprinkles

Monday, August 3, 2009 at 6:20 PM filed under Weight Loss postings
I'm sore from playing horseshoes yesterday. (That's embarrassing.) So, my roommate decided that she wants to be a baker. She made 3 different, equally tempting, batches of cupcakes this past weekend. Of course, I felt obligated to try each kind. Delicious. She knows I am trying to stick with the FitClick plan and made it perfectly clear that all recipes contain only full fat ingredients: Dieters Beware! Thankfully, she brought all cupcakes to our friends' bbq yesterday and none of them returned ...

Fired Up

Friday, July 31, 2009 at 2:37 PM filed under Weight Loss postings
Inspired by my diet prescription yesterday, I discovered I make a mean Turkey Burger. I used 1 pound of lean turkey meat & added some basic spices & condiments--Worcestershire sauce, light soy sauce, mustard, parsley, cayenne, garlic powder, ranch seasoning, salt, & pepper--basically, whatever I found in my cabinet. I divided the meat into four patties & cooked on my stove top with a grill pan. They came out really nice. I put the burger on an Arnold's Multigrain Sandwich Th...

SPF 3000

About to log off for a long weekend away from my FitClick workout tracker & calorie counter. I got in a workout this morning and yesterday evening after work. Going to try to get up, before I hit the road to the Outer Banks tomorrow, for a long elliptical spin. Then, eating & drinking will be a total free-for-all for 3 days. (That's in the definition of "vacation," right?) May manage to squeeze in some activity although I don't really swim. Kayaks and tennis courts are availabl...

Caution: Workout May Cause Extreme Boredom

Tuesday, July 21, 2009 at 1:28 PM filed under Weight Loss postings
I recently decided to decrease my intensity & increase my time for the cardio workout (usually elliptical machine). I had been doing 20-30 minutes at a high level. For my last few workouts, I dropped the level a few notches and increased the time to 45 minutes. I was chatting with my boss about how I'd been using FitClick's online workout trainer. He suggested that I try to keep my heart rate up for a longer period of time to burn more fat. I'd like to get to 1 hour. But, I'm finding i...
