Let me clarify

2012-02-25 05.57.02 5 egg whites and oatmeal

l2012-02-25 07.40.182012-02-25 10.08.482012-02-25 11.12.13 NF cottage cheese, light balsamic dressing thinned and green beans 2012-02-25 13.45.49 carrots, jicama and cucumber.. (the specks are broccoli)2012-02-25 14.36.45 broccoli, spaghetti squash and turkey meatballs 2012-02-25 15.38.40 cooked cabbage

I also munched on some yams and brussel sprouts

I have to cook to be ready for work, I should have cooked more turkey meatballs (maybe tomorrow??) I always try to have a protein with my veggies, but when I cook all my veggies, I tend to go overboard on the vegetables… makes sense

Clarification: I know what you mean about muscle weight vs fat weight… Muscle is denser than fat, and I know intellectually that it is ok for me to weigh more because I am more fit, and my clothes all fit just fine… but emotionally it is hard seeing the bigger number … even if it is only a few pounds. Which is why I am going to try to use the scale less often … I need it to keep me from lying to myself after a candy and Dorito binge, but when things are clicking and the scale is not friendly and my clothes are loose… I get bummed out 

why does the scale have that power? stupid little danged machine!!

so later taters Smile with tongue out

Countdown to conference

I have 19 days until my management conference, I am not looking to lose any weight really, just to feel better about myself, so yesterday was day #1

I related to Suzi’s post, and her feelings… about not making it more than 3 days… so I am counting days. I have gained about 3-5 pounds and that conversation about muscle weighing more than fat …. well Sis I am stealing your links Smile 

http://www.everydayhealth.com/weight/busting-the-muscle-weighs-more-than-fat-myth.aspx

http://www.fitsugar.com/You-Asked-Muscle-vs-Fat-2471712

so I know the number I want to see 137… but I am going to TRY not weighing myself until after the conference and just concentrate on healthy choices

I have this on my desk at work

2012-02-24 17.07.19

I did have half of a banana yesterday. I never eat banana’s… it was yummo Smile 

and on my Co Manager’s desk

Why?

why are some days just easier than others? Weird?

I think maybe it’s about when I make a decision. For me that’s it!

This morning as I am lying in bed, dreading the scale (143) I was thinking, when did all this struggling start? Several months now. Back when I started training with my trainer, I started counting grams of protein. Why? am I going to compete in some sort of fitness contest? …. ahhh no!!! So Weight Watchers worked for me in losing 65 pounds, so I am back to it….100% no “tweeking” no nuthin!! straight up Weight Watchers

if my muscle weighs more than my fat, cool… I will be leaner now, but I want to see 137 on that scale again and, I am going to!!!

2012-02-21 07.17.32 Bagel thin with NF cottage 2012-02-21 10.06.38 salad with thinned dressing2012-02-21 12.25.40 brussel sprouts 2012-02-21 15.37.57 2012-02-21 17.05.39 baked vegetables and 2 turkey meatballs

I also had some 100 calorie popcorn and a bite of the taco casserole I made for the family

cardio and circuit training so doing all the math I used 4 points of my weekly 35

good day Smile 

see ya tomorrow blogger pals
