White Chocolate

Just finished a 1.5oz chunk of really good white chocolate (I don't like white chocolate but Love White Chocolate from the local chocolate shop).  That cost me about 7 WW points :-(

Oh well.  Looks like my supper is going to be: Egg whites with veggies, salsa, toast and some fruit.
No worse for the ware I just need to be aware.  I've found egg white sandwiches to have been my saviour on many an occasion when I get a little overboard with the calories during the day.
I whip up a couple egg whites (sometimes three depending on how hungry I am).  Put it in the microwave with some salt and pepper.  Serve between two pieces of whole wheat toast with salsa (or ketchup) and sauteed onions.  Yum!

Hmmmm.... I also have a head of cauliflower in the fridge.  I think I may make some cauliflower soup or cauliflower mashed potatoes:  boil cauliflower add your seasoning and put in a blender or food processor with some liquid (water or chicken broth to your taste). Enjoy!  I'm sure some of you may be saying yuck!  It's funny if you said to me a couple years ago that I would be eating egg whites and cauliflower mashed potatoes I would say Huh? - say what? 

Tonight is my WW meeting weigh in.  It will be interesting to see what the scale says.  After eating all that white chocolate I feel like I have a brick sitting in the bottom of my stomach (it tasted good at the time but now I have the feeling of yuck! in my belly).

Today I ran 3.5 miles on a track and it felt great.  I find whenever I have pent up negative energy or worries running seems to get that energy out and I feel more relaxed and rejuvenated. 

Tomorrow will be another workout day for me.  I'm going to run 3.5 miles and get some weight training in as well.  My next big run will be this Saturday of 5 miles with hills outside.  Feeling a little bit nervous about it.  People are going to show up and run with me.  I find that exciting and scary.  The scary part is can I do it?  Can I run 5 miles?  My answer: No Matter What!

Update: The scale at my WW weigh in said I was a +.4lb  :-(  Oh well.  I'm not going to stress about it.  The scale at my WW meeting weigh in last week was a -3.4lbs.  I'm just going to make sure I really work hard this week.

Weight Watchers vs. Jillian Michael's

It's been a little over 3 years (January 2010) since I started my weight loss journey. I reached my goal weight in May of 2011 (135 lbs). Since then it's been a yoyo and my trend had been going up over the last several months. My current weight is 150 lbs (I was 155 but lost 5lbs over the last few weeks). My goal is to lose the weight I put back on (20 lbs) plus an additional 5 lbs for a weight loss of 25 lbs in total. It's so hard keeping the weight off!!

The strategy I'm now doing this time is different. I've decided to follow Jillian Michael's weight loss program instead of continuing on with Weight Watchers. I lost the 80lbs on Weight Watchers and the program served me well. It forced me to look at portion size, calories (with old points system), fiber, carbs, fat and protein (with the new points plus system).  It changed the way I looked at food. Instead of processed foods I focused on eating a variety of whole fruits, vegetables, legumes, grains and low …

Sonya 'Lost It'

Well it's now after Christmas and before New Years as I write this post.  I have been on hiatus for a long time on my blog.  I've been spending some of my time thinking about what I was going to write. I have been through some difficult times starting back in late October.  What I am about to write is very personal.   I feel a little bit foolish for sharing this with everyone as most people don't share their 'business' never mind posting it in a blog.  My hope in this post is to not have people feel sorry for me but that readers get an understanding for my situation and also an understanding of others who are going through something similar.

Taking a deep breath.

I am currently being treated for depression and anxiety and I'm almost finished with an intensive outpatient program at a local hospital (thankfully it's an amazing psychiatric hospital about 40 minutes from my home).

For those who are reading this and have either gone through a depressive episode…

Healthy Boundaries?

Growing up I always felt like I had to 'do what I was told' or else. A lot of what I learned as a child in terms of relationship bonds and my place in the world is mirrored in my adult relationships. It's taken me many years to figure what my mirror is showing me both good and bad.

I'm guessing many woman (not all) have felt the pressure to conform to others expectations and at the same time not wanting to hurt anyone's feelings or risk being seen as uncooperative. The price woman have paid over the decades has been insurmountable. I think of the mom on Leave It To Beaver, and how woman either bought into or felt that's what they should aspire to. Later on in television was the Mary Tyler Moore Show. The show was about a single woman in her thirties working at a TV station. In the show she was portrayed as a strong independent woman who knew more than those she worked with. Many decades since then more women are in the workplace than ever and more are showing …
