The McDonald’s Mistake

Published April 7, 2012 by The Inane and insane Ramblings of Rose

Okay, so I have altered my diet dramatically in the last 4-6 months and over that time I have not had McDonald’s once. I used to be a McDonald’s addict. Well my son is a chicken Mcnuggets fan and I thought, hack, it’s a holiday weekend.  Soooooo…… on the way to my mother’s house we stopped at McDonald’s and he had chicken McNuggets and I had that epitome of all things unhealthy: The Big Mac. Big Mistake! My body is not used to all that fat and salt and general chemical stew implanted in that pseudo beefy goodness. It tasted wonderful going down. But now I feel positively green! My body is teaching me a lesson. Though shalt no longer eat fast food unless thou is willing to pay for it dearly. Lesson definitely learned! I am not weighing myself this coming monday because I have slacked off a bit this week on my diet and exercise plan due to the holidays and just general stress. I’ve had some minor emotional eating and some major laziness when it comes to exercising. So I am starting fresh on monday. I have also decided to start filling in my day planner each night for goals the next day as I have stopped doing that and have started to lose some structure and I really need the structure and motivation or I’m not getting things accomplished and I am not remaining accountable. It also helps with my battle with my depression and bipolar disorder because if there is something I really need to work on I can remind myself to do it. This week wednesday I had a med review at the doctors and he doubled my wellbutrin which is my second anti depressant. So hopefully that will help get me out of this great green funk that I am in. IN addition to a better diet and exercise.  so that’s it for me. Love to you all and have a very happy Easter!




Cardio and Finnigan begin again

Published February 24, 2012 by The Inane and insane Ramblings of Rose

Well I survived the cardio portion of Jillian Michaels just barely. And I mean barely. I made it through the next two workouts a little easier but not by much. But I am actually gaining a little bit of weight. i don’t think i am watching my diet enough. And I think I may need to add swimming or some sort of other exercise with the program to make it work better for me. When I come back from virginia the end of next week I am going to follow the diet plan I think and see what happens. It will probably help. It is high protien low cal ketogenic. In fact for the first week there are pretty much no grains at all allowed. Then some whole grains. I’m not sure fruit is allowed the first week either. Until then I am just going to keep on trucking. I will do the best I can. My trip will kind of put my exercise on the back burner a little bit but I need a bit of a getaway and it will be good to see my friends again after so long. And I can still follow a healthy diet. Tommorow I am back into cardio mode and it will probably hurt like the dickens again but I know I can do it. i really need to get a sports bra though as there is a lot of jumping around and someone is going to get hurt lolol. These puppies have a mind of their own! Lol. Anyway, Ciao!
