Well this one I did take yesterday. It was so nice out there. I listened to music, read, and swam for an hour. I was there almost three hours total but was in the shade most of it.
So I was watching Dr. Oz (I know, I know) and he had a guest saying how to lose weight. She said she can never have a cupcake or carbs again.
I don't think this is realistic and I think I am proof of that. I eat cake. Occasionally. And not a lot. But yes, I eat cake. Perhaps I would lose faster if I didn't but I don't think I could spend the rest of my life not eating something I love. Nor do I want to. (Y'all.) So the answer realistically is moderation and exercise and eating mostly healthy foods and (much) less unhealthy foods.
Lifestyle changes worked for me. I don't like to be hungry and I do like a lot of food on my plate. I use a smaller plate and have (usually) 1/2 vegetable, 1/4 starch, 1/4 protein. Very little fat and only healthy fat (olive oil, coconut oil, smart balance).
Even thought I am losing (really) slowly now my shape is changing.
Okay I was asked a couple of questions yesterday. What fruit do I like for the "ice cream" I make in the Vitamix. Strawberry is my favorite and peach is my next favorite. I do not like the mix with banana as I think the texture is "ookie" and the mixed berry has too many seeds. The Vitamix will grind them up but I stop earlier because I like little bits of fruit in it, not totally smooth.
Next I was asked about a Halloween costume for the cruise. YES. I have the perfect one. Stay tuned... I will post photos here and on facebook. We are having a costume contest. Roche' thinks he'll win but I don't know, I love mine too.
Then finally last night I won $156.00 at poker. Yee Haw!
Have a great Wednesday. I sure will too.
