It's a new year....

Things for me are rough going right now, but my weight doesn't have to be one of those things. I've lost 1.5 lbs. Not a lot, but it's a start.

I'm execrising more and feeling a bit better.

Just a bit... but better.....

Monday Activity

Oh, I got a fit bit and I'm loving it! Here is yesterday's activity.

A fresh start....

It's me an I vow to lose this weight. I deleted most of the old posts, but I kept some yummy recipe posts.

I've been hovering at my highest weight ever and I'm not happy about it. I am stuck in a rut. An infinate loop.

I'm depressed.
I eat.
I feel fat.
I sit on the couch all day long too depressed to do aything else.
I'm depressed.
I eat.....

You get the idea. I gained the extra weight starting with my motorcycle accident in November 2009. I had a broken foot (and a broken wrist) so the weight went on easily.

But then I continued to gain. I've hovered at 175 for months now, unable to lose. I eat too much and I exercise too little. I know I'm depressed about it and I know it's a horrible cycle.

It's time to snap out of it. It was easy to be overweight... my husband was. But wow, he's losing weight fast and getting more and more fit and feeling awesome about himself and I'm still overweight. He's gonna leave me in the dust if I keep this up.

Here we go again....

Not quite back to it....

As my twitter friends know, I had a heck of a week. Sick kitty consumed all of my Wed night and most of my Thursday and Friday. She's still taking a bit of time today just to keep an eye on her to make sure she's keeping up on her water. Giving her meds was much more successful today with hubby's help.

Yesterday the kitty followed me around everywhere. She and I (and the kitten) finally collapsed on the couch to veg out. But needless to say another week has gone by with no exercise. Not even very many smoothies. Ugh.

Made a great one today though. Thought I would share:

1/2 cup FF Yogurt (2 pts)
1/2 cup 1% milk (1 pt)
3/4 cup pineapple (1 pt)
3/4 cup blueberries (1 pt)
1/2 frozen banana (1 pt)

Interesting and very yummy. Umm, well I didn't eat this one. Hahaha kiddo and hubby stole it. Mine, well I just used a few less blueberries and tossed in some raspberries. Not much different still yum-o!

Cream o' Broccoli/Cauliflower Cheesy Soup

Ok I didn't measure the broccoli/cauliflower because I just used what was in the bag. I'll guess.

2 cups frozen broccoli / cauliflower veggies (0 pts)(maybe 1)
1 can ff low sodium chicken broth (about 2 cups) (0 pts)
1 can campbells cheese soup (6 pts)

Boil veggies in the chicken broth. Put in blender and puree. Put back in pot and add cheese soup. Mix and warm it up. YUM!

I get about 2-3 servings out of it so divide points accordingly.

Not so tart

This one is just a wee bit tart. But not near as much as the earlier one.

1 cup low fat plain yogurt (goofed last week) (4 pts)
3/4 cup raspberries (1 pt)
3/4 cup blueberries (1 pt)
3/4 cup frozen fruit mix (it was mostly grapes) (1 pt)
1 banana (2 pts)

I split this with my kiddo (his is in a fancy cup from carnival cruises) so It's about 4.5 points. Yum! Just a hint of tartness. I hope he likes his at lunch. I'll keep you tuned.

I was thinking the bigger I make them the yummier they seem to be. 1 blueberry makes less of a taste difference in a 2 cup smoothie as opposed to a 1/2 cup smoothie. That theory. So I might start making them bigger and then splitting in 2 containers for lunch.

As long as I remember to take it out the night before to thaw it for the next day, I'm good to go! Easier said than done!
