Hey Buddies!

Happy Friday! Well we got back from Vegas and a good time was had by all!
My husband won $209 - which is a big jackpot for us 25 cent slot folks! LOL.

I stayed on my
OTF workout schedule and exercised Tuesday and Wednesday. It was really great for me because I am pretty self-motivated. Each day I did 30 minutes on the elliptical and then upper body weight work with squats and deadlifts to round it out to about an hour.

I have to laugh because there were a couple really young men (teens?)fooling around with the 10lb and 15lb handweights while grunting, groaning, etc.

Then this fat old woman (me) walks over and picks up two 20lb weights and one 25lb weight and proceeds to do chest presses, flys, triceps, biceps, etc. They stared and didn't know what to say!

Food was off the plan entirely! I did not overeat in quantity; but did choose what I wanted...pasta, bread, crepes, some fried items, and some alcoholic beverages.

Today, I am trying to slowly shock myself back on plan for food...and I already went to my workout at
Orange Theory Fitness this morning.

So, healthy habits are here and that is probably worth a lot~

I am dedicated, determined, and diligent!

Greetings my buddies!

Well, I have been a little lost the last week! Work was overwhelming and I was incredibly busy with housecleaning so we could come home to a clean home after a short vacation trip this week!

We are not slobs...but can really let things go enough that it becomes a major chore to mop all the floors, vacuum, scrub the bathrooms, etc. I HATE it. It burns calories, but I HATE it.

We are in Las Vegas starting today until Thursday. WTF - why Vegas in July when it is 115 degrees you ask? Good question.

It is my dear husband's 65th birthday and he wanted to visit some western ghost towns guessed it...Nevada! I arranged the trip as a birthday surprise for him!

I am at the indoor pool/spa by day and in air conditioned hotels in the evening! I will continue to try to eat better, and plan to exercise twice while here.

Next year when I turn 60 in May...we will NOT be going to Nevada!

I am dedicated, determined, and diligent!

Hey my Buddies:

Carbs, carbs carbs. So many opinions about what, how much, and when to eat them!

We need carbs for quick energy, and for people who exercise regularly this can be important.

But what to choose? I tend to eat my carbs as fruits and vegetables throughout the day with some Bran Buds thrown in for fiber.

The "bad" carbs for me usually mean anything from the bread, crackers, cereals, wheat flour or even corn groups. The sugar/craving cycle starts if I choose tortilla chips, cereals (even whole grsin), breads, etc.

And, there is often a discussion about getting more carbs eaten in the morning since our body will use the carbs for energy and not store them as fat.

It is also about our body's ability to process insulin - which is what tends to happen when we consume carbs - there is a spike and a crash.

What carbs do you choose, when do you eat them?

I am dedicated, determined, and diligent!
