Day 1055- How SparkPeople Always Knows What I Need

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

Yesterday, I had my first migraine in over a month. But boy was it a doozy. Woke up at 6am with the terrible shooting pain behind my left eye. Took some migraine meds and went back to bed hoping by 7am the meds would kick in and I could head to work. But the pain just got worse. I took another pill, let work know I wouldn't be in, then went back to sleep. Slept for most of the day but woke up feeling much better.

One day migraines are so much more tolerable that 4-5 day migraines, so I'll take it at this point.

Anyways, when I finally did wake up. I was feeling sorry for myself. Sick days just do that to me. Earlier, when the migraine first came on, it made me very nauseous, so there I was at 2pm, having not eaten a thing. And all I wanted was a DairyQueen Blizzard.

I decided to check my email, and low and behold, I had tons of wall comments and goodies congratulating me on being Motivator of the Day! I'd already been Motivator of the Day before so I was really surprised to see that I'd been honored again. But those goodies and comments were enough for me to go upstairs and grab some fruit to eat rather than driving out and getting the Dairy Queen I thought I wanted.

I've realized that I don't think I'm every going to be able to rewire my brain to not crave ice cream. Even when I was doing Whole30, that was the one thing I missed the most. I don't think I'm going to be able to change that. But one thing I can change is my reasons for eating. I saw on a few other blog posts ideas about intuitive eating, and only eating when hungry. And I'm definitely guilty of eating when bored, or because it's "breakfast" time or "lunch" time. Why does the clock suddenly hitting noon mean I have to shove food in my mouth?

It doesn't. I need to eat when I'm HUNGRY. When my body is demanding fuel and nutrition. Not because it's free and sitting on the lunchroom counter, or because everyone else is eating.

So that's what I'm working on this week. Only eating when I'm hungry as well as only eating enough to fill me up. While I enjoy my two eggs and sausage every morning, this morning I only had eggs and I'm not starving or feeling unsatisfied. So I'm just going to continue to track and count calories and see how it goes.

As always, thanks for your support SparkFriends. You mean so much to me.

    So glad the migraine was only for the day as long as it had to rear it's ugly head! Hope you are feeling 100% again and it's a long time before you have another. You are really doing awesome with your food intake and strong with self denial with the ice cream. I do have trouble with that if there is any in the house so we don't have it around very often. Hang in there!!

    Sorry about the migraines. Know the feeling as I had them for so many years and now my son and most of our grandchildren also get them. emoticon
I have always loved ice cream and we even ran an ice cream business where we made our own excellent ice cream. (I'm lactose intolerant and shouldn't ever eat it.)
Now I have discovered that I would rather eat the "Soft Banana Ice Cream" made from a SP recipe, and I splurge with a little chocolate syrup on it.
Just make sure you have a sturdy food processor before attempting to make it.
Hope you are feeling better now!

    Congrats on making the healthier choice! I've been put in similar situations lately, where life takes over and it would just be so easy to make the easy/unhealthy decision. We just have to stay strong no matter what the obstacle and keep making the right choices. Little by little they all add up!

    you are welcome! Your blogs are an inspiration to a lot of us so it's good to know that we can give that back to you a little! I think that 'hunger' thing is reserved for those who have never had a weight issue. That's how 'those' people think.

The rest of us mere mortals are enslaved to either timings, peer pressure or what the latest diet guru is telling us to do! If I waited for hunger - I would go all day without eating which is obviously not healthy! (Mainly because then you just reach for whatever!)

But then what do I know!! I'm mindlessly eating Triscuits as I write - did not eat dinner tonight!

    You might want to try getting a Yonanas machine that makes ice cream out of just a banana. I often add plan frozen fruit into it and sometimes some unsweetened coconut flakes and other additives. It is really good and so easy to make. Bed Bath and Beyond carries them.

    Migraines are the worst. While it would be best never to have experienced one at all, I too would gladly take 1 day of suffering over 4-5. I feel very confident saying that goes for ALL of us. Have you figured out what their trigger might be? Maybe you could avoid them all together if you tracked them and uncovered the cause.

The treatment works for her and only gets one very occasionally. Maybe you can ask a message therapist about how to do it on yourself. I wish you success. emoticon

    Sorry about the migraine - they're rough :( It's not EXACTLY the same as ice cream, but a frozen banana hits that ice cream craving for me quite often. Also, a friend on Weight Watchers told me about a "mock" ice cream sandwich that is good - Take a graham cracker and break it into 2 squares, add a tablespoon of cool whip, sandwich the squares together, and pop it in the freezer. OR Yoplait Whips are really good frozen for an "ice cream" effect - although it's just about as many calories *blushes*. You can do it!

    I sympathize; I had a banger of a headache a couple of weeks ago, for the first time in at least ten years I had to go back to bed and slept until 4 p.m., but woke up blissfully headache free. No fun at all, but here's hoping you have less of these in the future (I had none from my thirties on).

Day 1048- Foot Pain and One Last Great Pic

Wednesday, October 15, 2014

So I wasn't able to work out last night.

I'm having some strange foot pain in my left foot. As crazy as it sounds, I'm wondering if it's turf toe from playing in the flag football game. All I know is I have a random shooting pain between my second and third toe whenever I push off from my left foot. I'm sure resting it is key, but I just don't know how it happened. Definitely can't run, but thinking I'll bike or do some elliptical which won't require pushing off with my toes.

Definitely hope it goes away soon, because I have some killer heels to wear under my wedding dress... in ONE MONTH! Yes, that's right, one month from today, I get married!

I'm very excited and I'm happy I decided to change my life before taking this big step for the future. The first blog I ever wrote said something like " I'm not even engaged yet, but I don't want to look fat in my wedding dress." Everything is coming full circle.

Also, found a sweet photo of my touchdown on Facebook.



Man, I love my job. The family atmosphere here is so amazing. I'm really glad J.D. and I decided to move up here. It was definitely a positive step for our future.

Now, if any one has any suggestions on what I think are toe sprains, let me know please!

    No advice on toe, but thought Bio Freeze might be a good idea.
We old folks use Voltaren for arthritis pain and it works! It's a prescription, expensive and not readily available for many.
So glad you are happy in MI and can't wait for wedding photos. (can't imagine high heels under gown - I wore flats!!!)

    After a couple months of a strange pain in my forefoot and a couple toes, last night I purposely stepped into some Biofreeze and then elevated my foot until it dried. This morning, no pain. I've walked almost 8 miles today and no pain. It does state on the package it is a temporary pain relief. I did see my doctor about the foot pain and the answer I was given was to change up shoes. Sure that worked but I would have to get a new pair of running shoes every month!

Hope you foot gets better soon!

    I didn't know what turf toe was until last week when I thought I had it.. During my research I discovered that.

Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation - seem to be the common treatments for Turf Toe. Pain killers and anti inflamitories will help with the discomfort. If it is turf toe, then doing a combination of these things should make the pain disappear within two weeks, if not see a doctor.

I don't have turf toe.. I have something else. My toe doesn't hurt but on the underside of my foot between the second and third toe it feels like I'm stepping on a pad a butter when I walk.... Still no idea what the Dx for that is :(.

    I hope your toe is all better now. When my son was young, he ran into the foot of the coffee table. It swelled, bruised up and he said it hurt. I took him to the doctor to rule out it was broken. It was badly bruised and all that could be done was to tape the toes together. He hobbled along and kept from any running, jumping, or any other little boy physical activities (which was hard to do). He was able to take Ibuprofen for pain, which helped, and we iced and would keep foot elevated, when possible. I don't recall how long it took for him to recover. I hope yours is all healed up because nothing worse than wearing killer heels with toe or foot pain. emoticon

I can't believe that wedding is only one month away! WOW! Time flies! Aren't you glad you made the choice to change your life so that you will look gorgeous in that dress on your special day? I had lost weight before I got married, but went off the diet in the few months before and gained some back. It was sure a relief when that dress zipped up, but it wasn't long before it would never have fit. And I went on that way for close to 40 years, gaining and gaining, before realizing MORBIDLY OBESE was no way to live! Hope the toe heals long before the big day, but if I were you, I would have a pair of comfy flats to put on for the festivities after the ceremony so you are not in pain all evening!

Day 1047- I Scored a Touchdown in the Big House!

Tuesday, October 14, 2014

Hey Everyone!

Sorry for the delay. Last week was very busy as it was the last weekend I had to go home to prepare stuff for the wedding. But last Wednesday I played in the flag football game at Michigan Stadium. I got my own jersey (guess which number I traded for...)



And I had my own locker name plate.




And in the 3rd quarter, while on offense, I made a run, got open, and my quarterback threw to me. And I CAUGHT IT. IN THE ENDZONE!

TOUCHDOWN!



It was so amazing playing in such an awesome stadium.


Then I got to travel home with J.D. and picked up our marriage license!



And today, I started back to a whole foods diet modified. Going to attempt to limit my carbs and focus on my fruits, veggies and lean proteins, while also sometimes having some dairy in the form of skim milk and greek yogurt. I think this diet will have me feeling better and less sluggish. I've definitely been eating too many carbs as of late.

I'm going to try and go to my gym this evening after I get off work. I know I will be tired, but I also know that it's worth it, and if for no other reason, I'm excited to use the hydromassage again.

Hope you all are having a wonderful week.

    That was a good read. You mentioned to limit carbs. Just a friendly comment in regards to carbs. If you eat complex carbs. ( 2 or more grams of fiber for every 100 calories) you will be a calorie burning machine. For every gram of fiber you eat the body will burn 7 calories trying to digest it. Fiber is a carb but unlike other carbs it wont digest. It cleans your intestines, to better enable the body to absorb all those macro and micro nutrients we consume. Subtract your fiber grams from your carb grams to get your net carbohydrate. emoticon

Day 1041- 100 Burpees??

Wednesday, October 08, 2014

Hey Everyone!

I'm involved in two separate health and wellness activities through my work. One is called Active U Autumn, and sets a goal of at least 120 minutes of activity a week, and the other is called Ready to Lose, and is a 24 week webinar program for weight loss. Both are completely free and have prizes at the end. I'm lucky to work at the University of Michigan where health and wellness are so important.

Anyways, yesterday in a department newsletter, there was a suggestion for the 100 Challenge, which consisted of 40 Burpees, 40 crunches, 30 burpees, 30 crunches, 20 burpees, 20 crunches, 10 Burpees, 10 crunches. And I thought, why not?

So I decided to try it at home. And before I even started I thought to myself, even if you only do the 40s that's great. And then I thought. No, that's not. You are capable of more than that, so finish the workout.

So I did. I wore my heart rate monitor and did the intervals and somehow completed all 100 burpees and 100 crunches in just over 20 minutes. And boy was it a workout!

But it was nice to do something other than just run to get my heart going.

Now tonight I'm playing a flag football game at the Big House, which will be SO cool! Even though I've been here a month, I haven't made it to a game, because I've been traveling home on the weekends, so tonight will be the first time I set foot in Michigan Stadium. I'm pretty excited.

I'll be sure to have J.D. take some pictures of me in action, though there are about 40 people on our team, and only 10 people on the field at a time, so I'm pretty sure I won't be playing that much. But it will be fun all the same.

If anyone is in the Ann Arbor area and would like to come watch the flag football game, you are more than welcome! It would be fun to meet you! Let me know if you plan on coming. :)

Have a great week Sparkfriends!

    Way to go! Isn't it crazy how our workouts are sooo much more mental than physical? Not that they aren't physical, too. We can definitely feel it physically. I just really notice the difference when I bring my positive attitude versus the "I don't know if I can make it" attitude.

I've heard him speak at a wellness conference in Jacksonville, read several articles/interviews with him. He is phenomenal! Love the challenges that 'yall have been presented with, I might write these down for our wellness program at work.

I got home late after the kids sports practice and needed something that didn't require too much thought but would still be a good workout. Boy was it ever! You are strong, lady! It took me about 27 minutes bc I had to catch my breath a few times & then I ended up counting wrong and did 110 lol..but I did it! Thanks for sharing!

  that's a lot of burpees. One can't help but laugh, well probably only those NOT doing all that.

Your doing so well. Maybe your stats will change before the big day. Your doing a lot.

Maybe that will help with nerves . At least you'll sleep well and it should assist with any possible stress with all the changes.

I hope where you end up going on your honeymoon, that is will be so enjoyable, and you can get rested.

Day 1039- My First Day at Planet Fitness

Monday, October 06, 2014

So I decided to pay the $19.99/month for the unlimited use of all Planet Fitness clubs. And you guys were right! The perks are awesome. I can bring a guest every time I go, so J.D. can come with me whenever he wants!

I have a flex schedule at work because on Mondays I have to supervise study tables from 6-10. So I get a 4 hour break during the day and decided to head to Planet Fitness near my work. Last night, I packed my bag with gym clothes, as well as a towel, shower shoes, and shower supplied so I could get really sweaty and still return to work fresh as daisies... emoticon

So today I did 15 minutes of elliptical, 30 minutes of treadmill and 35 minutes on the bike. Then after my workout, I used the hydromassage bed, which is basically a table with water underneath it that shoots up and massages you from head to toe. It was AWESOME! I can't wait to use it after my workouts especially on my sore legs. I think I will definitely be using the gym membership, not only because I paid for it, but also because there were no waits because of tons of equipment, and it really is a judgment free zone. I wasn't intimidated by anyone that was working out, and every one was really friendly.

Anyways, I feel like I'm back in the groove. I've had really healthy food, and feel great!

With a little over a month left to the wedding, I'm ready to buckle down and look and feel my greatest! Thanks for your continued support SparkFriends!

    I am so excited for you Jan-Marie. So many BIG things happening in your life. I have seen a new Planet Fitness going up and now open nearby, and saw their advertisement for cheap monthly rates. That isn't bad at all, and it's really like a 2 for 1 deal when J.D. can go with you too! Can't wait for the wedding--you're going to be a beautiful bride, and the best part is, since you have adopted this healthy lifestyle, you will be thin and beautiful for the rest of your life! I dieted before my wedding, (way back in 1970), looked okay for the wedding day, then quickly ballooned up to over 200 pounds and eventually over 300 pounds. But that was a diet. THIS is a LIFESTYLE!!!

  I never heard of this one. But gee the price is good, and it makes one want to work out when they have a bunch of machines and one gets these kinds of treats after work out. Sounds great.

Years ago I went o 24 hour Fitness. They had a hot sauna and showers. They had a cute little snack place.

It seems to me, anything extra you had to pay.

Some places keep pressuring you to get a personal trainer. I get that, but I think the club should at least show you how to use all machines in there or a start up program.

One thing I really miss is the weight machines. For some reason I found the leg ones fun, but probably the others are more important

I wish I could afford that, because when one gets older than you, it's even more important for bones. .

    I'm glad you're liking PF :) The only one in my area doesn't have the hydromassage beds, but one will be opening less than 3 miles from my house by the end of this year, so I'm hoping!

  What a great place to go to, so many gyms are so expensive these days! I could use one of those tables myself!! :-)

    Glad you have found a gym that you like to help you get really buffed up for the wedding! Donīt forget to drink even more water that usual in the weeks to come - it will make you feel less stressed at work too!

    Glad you liked Planet Fitness. It's the best gym I've ever belonged too. The hydromassage beds are my absolute favorite thing. I have a deal with myself that I am not allowed to use them unless I do at least 30 minutes of cardio and some strength training.

    Wow! We just got one of those and you may have sold me into checking it out. LOL! I wonder if they will let me bring my husband with me as a guest.
