HYC and me update

Message for Lainie: I can't post replies on your site. Tried twice (last night and this morning) and can't find your contact info :(

Thanks for all your support! It was a very, very, very stressful week/month, but I am ok now. I have some time until my net deadline(s) and I will work as hard as I can to make sure everything is ahead of schedule! My hair color hadn't handle this much stress!

You know your old have 2 beers and get a splitting headache and have to go to bed before 9!!! Yes, that was me Saturday. Not counting the whole 2 beers I had the night before at a Halloween party. I just don't do alcohol well anymore I guess (not that I ever did...unless you count getting drunk off my butt with 4 drinks). No complaints here though - I already have enough things I get addicted to.

So, while keeping up with readings I realized that y'all are kicking butt! Most of you are on track and doing well - way to go! I don't have to travel far for inspiration, do I? :)

My plan for the week.
1. I will walk 4 times this week (M, W, F, Sunday) traveling for at least 2 miles every time.
2. I will avoid most (if not all) foods with HFCS, enriched or having partially hydrogenated oils (seriously, makers of broke my heart when I read this ingredient).
3. I will try to only eat when I'm hungry! This one will be the toughest to follow...but, I'm prepared to give it my all!
4. Most important: I will not guilt myself if I'm not perfect in my endevors. I will just try to give it as much as I can! I am my own cheerleader, not heckler!

#4 -- absolutely. Be not a personal heckler! No heckling!

I'm glad to hear you survived. I've been thinking if you and hoping you were well.

Your goals sound good. I love number four. We give ourselves a hard time, don't we?

Can I ask what HFCS stands for? I'm assuming it's an abbreviation that stands for something chemically modified?


Diana said...

High fructose corn syrup. I've been trying to stay away from it after reading about how bad it is a couple months ago in "you, on a diet". `

Go Diana, Go Girl Go! Here cheering you on ... Good goals! I have emptied out the cabinets of HFCS foods, but if I want a taste of something that has, I'll have some. Still taking in a lot less than I used to! Wishing you a Great week. Rock the VOTE!

Diana said...

I'm so with you dadiviastreet - I don't eat it on a regular basis, but I don't "control" it when I'm out or want a taste! I don't eat out often, but with school lunches (e.g., with professor candidates - we "have" to go eat pizza..darn!!) But, I eat home food more often then not and the home food doesn't have it in it!

nmburleson said...

Those are great goals. I especially like #4! You're doing great!

Scale Junkie said...

HFCS got the boot in my house and made me a label reader...they sneak it into so many foods, especially bread ::insert angry look::

MizFit gave you a great tip and I'm going to borrow it frequently over the next few weeks!

Lainie said...

Yay, I think I fixed my comments issues, so please stop by again.

Love your plans for this week--I think I will take inspiration from you and attempt 2-4 myself (as for 1 I've got my own fitness plan). Have a great week!

Cammy said...

Stressy times can derail even the best plans. Glad you're through the worst of it! Looks like you have great goals for the coming week!

MizFit said...

happy walking day!

Im off to eat as, while a can of tuna DOES SOUND GOOD :), oatmeal calls.


Chantelle said...

Oh thanks for that. I have that book so will have to get around to reading.

I eat mainly whole foods but will start paying more attention. ;)
