The Land of Fernieville

I fell off the wagon

Posted in Daily, Health by fernieville on January 13, 2008

For the last two days I’ve had food at a restaurant or someone’s house. On Friday hubby and I had a date and we (me) decided to have Thai food. I had some delicious and scrumptious peanut/coconut milk chicken curry….oh it was so heavenly and thick and tasty and hot and smooth and peanutty and…

Anyhow, yesterday my friend had a lunch to celebrate his 11th Anniversary. I chose the salad…lots of it…then veggies, then meat, then lastly rice.

It’s annoying counting calories working hard all week and then BAM! Delicious curry with peanut butter and coconut milk…

But here is the silver lining: I ate half. I enjoyed my curry…half of it. And then I stopped and brought the rest home…. perhaps I shouldn’t have brought it home, but I figured my son would enjoy it…ok I ate that today, I confess, but I only ate half! The other half…

Tomorrow I get back on the wagon 🙂

Lost a little bit of myself

Posted in Daily, Health by fernieville on January 8, 2008

So I’ve lost weight. Not a lot of weight, but the loss has begun. 2.2lbs to be exact. And I went to the weight room…which I hated every moment of it but I did it.

School began this week and I’m back to the grind. Not a lot of time and the true test of my dietary commitment will be when school begins to pull on my time and I have to make the decision to eat for fun or eat for fuel. I have to remember that while I can eat food that is fatty/carbohydrate filled for fun once in a while, I must to remember that on most days, I must eat so my body gets nutrition and then have fun on days where my tongue gets to have some fun.

That’s not say that “diet” food isn’t tasteful, on the contrary. But I LOVE tempura, fried chicken, bowls of pasta and oodles of white rice. But my lifestyle isn’t active enough to support the calories concentrated in these foods. If I worked in the field, or played sports regurlarly, this wouldn’t make a darn bit of difference for my weight, though nutritionally they’d be more deficient.
