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.

7 1/2 Weeks Post Op - 185lbs

It's been almost 8 weeks since my surgery. I never thought I would see this day! The aqua therapy and physical therapy has paid off (as well as the surgery). My leg and back are pain free. Yesterday at my last physical therapy appointment I hopped, skipped, jumped and ran on the treadmill for 2 minutes! Pain Free!!! I never thought I would hear myself say the words: "I ran". My recovery time for this surgery was a lot tougher than the surgery I had last year. It feels like I can start to move forward. Unfortunately during my recovery time for comfort I've done a lot of eating. When I was actively exercising/running I would get a runners high. I think that was a big help to keeping me on track with my eating. The endorphins gave me a comfort high. However when I feel stress and lack of control and running isn't an option I tend to gravitate to food. Food and the pleasure of eating it is something I can control. Unfortunately there is a down side and that is we

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

The Weight Loss High

'Weight loss high' is a term I use when I describe what it's like to lose weight.  It's a high I had experienced while in the midst losing all that weight.  It was a feeling of nothing getting in my way and almost being invincible.  When I lost the weight for the first year I didn't go to any groups or meetings.  I logged my food in a journal, counted my WW points and exercised.  Every Monday morning was like Christmas morning for me.  I couldn't wait to see what the number was on the scale.  I averaged 2lbs a week weight loss for many weeks. Fast forward to today: I've 'lost the weight' and I'm in maintenance mode or I should be.  I gained 10lbs and now I'm trying to lose them again!  Maintenance is hard because the weight loss 'high' is gone.  The 'high' during weight loss is a nice distraction and it feels great.  I kept thinking I wonder when I'll fit into the next size down in jeans? Without the distraction of th
