Don't think I did this right the other day. Pawse part 2

Friday, September 26, 2014

P lan/Prepare for the coming week! I can't do much about this because in the hospital with hubby . I was sharing a tray with him but his appetite picked up and my aunts and mom stocked me up on food. Trouble is they brought me candy bars, chips, pork rinds,peppermint candy, yogurt covered pretzels, orange pop, cashews, besides the jalapeno bologna, tuna, bread, and canned fruit. I can't blame them because they didn't know I was on a diet. So now I have to be very careful. I already ate wrong yesterday when they took me out. So lets see what I can do.
1. From now on will eat the bologna and tuna without bread (already ate a sandwich today)
2. I can have some of the canned fruit. Going to check calories of pop tarts and maybe I can have one half the package for breakfast.
3. Will use the nuts and yogurt for snack.
4. Have to put in the tracker to see how that will fit with my calorie range.

A ct with consistency and determination by making healthy food choices and tracking nutrition! Just did all that in the P

W rite a blog reflecting on the past week...what hurdles did you encounter and how will you overcome them? I did this in yesterdays blog.

Set a goal, both non-scale and scale related, for the coming week!
non scale: I want to exercise longer and be able to breathe easier doing it.!
Scale: at least 2 pounds down.

E xecute movement the Wild way! A little hard to get wild in the hospital lol . Will do dancing with the door shut. Did it for 30 min. the other day. Maybe I should invite the nurses and doctors and have a sock hop lol.

Together with spark people, our teams and ourselves We Will Do This!

    hubby is doing really good and in a few days we be going to another hospital for therapy and I can go with him and stay. They say in 2 to 3 weeks he will be able to go home. that means he will be home for all the holidays. Yippee and hopefully no more nursing homes. thank you all for all your prayers and for caring.

    Pam,

How are you and your DH doing?

Girl you have everything covered! Your family did the best that they could, and now your working it to your advantage with the food, situation. I'm glad your DH's appetite has picked up, as, to me, that means he's feeling better.

Yes Ma'am, I would invite the doctors and nurses to exercise with you! You never know, how many takers you'll have. Besides, if they're not able to do it then, they may be watching when you do it and coordinate their breaks or lunch around that, so they can participate. All they're waiting for is an invite!

Thank you, I AM stronger than the challenge and the challenge is making me stronger!

Blessings!

    Hoping everything went well with the surgery.. and that hubby will be feeling great in short order. So hard to plan when life gets in the way. Keep pushing, No more hospital food for you? Watch those snacks, and see if you can get your family to bring some fresh fruit and maybe some cottage cheese ??

Big Hugs

My first blc26 week and plan for the week ahead.

Wednesday, September 24, 2014

This week I have increased my walking and exercise. I got in 402 fitness minutes , which is a lot for me. I am proud of myself for just doing it.
Many times I have waited for that magical fairy emoticon to wave her wand and make it all disappear but I grew up and fairy's won't do the work for me. I have to put in the time and effort to make it work.
I needed an extra push and the tigers will do that for me. We have each others back and are
supporting each other.
The blc teams are great for setting up challenges to help you get a sense of pride In what you accomplished. They give you the support of a team with strong leaders and caring people. It is awesome. don't think It is like other teams that you just talk and float by in. You are given a plan and you must follow guidelines for checking in and keeping a time for weigh in and posting that weigh in. It gives you structure, support and guidelines but you must do the work yourself.
I have lost 6.6 pounds as of Sunday. I could not meet today's weigh in because of being in the hospital for the last 5 days with hubby. So hopefully I lost more but am ecstatic about the pounds I did lose.

Plan for this week:
1. Hopefully will get back home in the next few days. Hubbys surgery is today and then he will probably be here another 3 days before going into the nursing home.
2. I will continue working out both in the hospital and out. I need to put in at least 30 min. a day.
3. I will eat to the best of my ability and stay in calorie and carb range.
4. I will take stock of what is going on with my body and what foods help the loss and what foods I should leave alone.

that is about all I can plan while in the hospital. There is no planning the menu ahead of time...so will just eat what I can in the right portion size.

Have a great week ahead as I plan to do. Pam

We are all beautiful and may be a little scruffy now but wait til you see the finished product. We are all beautiful inside and are a creation of God. We are different but who wants a million reproductions. That would be very boring.

We make faces and talk gibberish to baby's but we need to be honest with ourselves. Instead of making excuses why you can't...get up and do what you can. If you really want it you can do it.

Believe in yourself and keep that faith that you can do it. Make a mantra and say it off and on all day.
Mine is: I am a miracle! I don't think I can....I KNOW I can!

Now don't just sit there reading this...get up and do it. Make every min. count.

foot in a bottle? Oh no you don't

Tuesday, September 23, 2014

Well I also did 30 min of dancing in the hospital with the doors shut....hoping no doctor came in lol.
Hubby had told me he wanted to keep his leg and foot in a bottle and I told him no.
When the doctor came in I told him," he is going to ask you a question so tell him no.
He asked the doctor and the doctor replied, with his nose all wrinkled uo, one word, " Gross." Then hubby laughed and said he was only kidding anyway. Thank Goodness.
surgery is tomorrow for sure now. Thank you all for the prayers.
this prayer is for all of us. May your day be bright and sunny tomorrow.

how to exercise in the hospital with hubby.

Tuesday, September 23, 2014

Unless something happens hubby's leg amputation is tomorrow. I thank everyone for the prayers and well wishes. It has been 5 long years of fighting the infection in his blood from the leg.
I joined the blc 26 so trying to keep up my exercise min. in the hospital. I close the door and do chair exercises because he has been sleeping a lot and I don't want to disturb him but need to keep going for my health.
I do some of Paul eugenes chair exercises...pretty peppy...and lauchpad etc. I love the ones in sp but they keep messing up. I tried downloading google chrome but was just worse.
We are waiting for the doctor to come in and talk to us about time and what will happen afterwards. I know he will have to go back to the nursing home for awhile.
We are sharing a tray for now because it cost me over a hundred dollars last time for guest trays and we don't have it right now. He isn't eating a lot so it works out.
I would do my shake your booty dances but afraid some one would walk in lol. I can just see the surgeons face as he walks in the door and I am shaking my booty to bob seger good ole time rock n roll. Boy would that be a face to take a picture lol.
We are scared but he wants to get it over with They say he will feel much better.
I was doing a paul Eugene chair exercises with modified jumping jacks and he didn't laugh but did smile pretty big.

Your challenge is within you and with you. Go for doing better every day.

Believe in yourself and be yourself...not what others want you to be.



I want you to know if I can do this in the hospital...you can do it at home! so come on and let's free ourselves from feeling sick, tired and just plain frustrated.

    Loving thoughts and prayers for you today and ever... as your hubby undergoes this very serious surgery. Know that we are here for you ... and if you want to SCREAM AND RANT... you know where to reach us. If you are running short on exercise.. Take a walk around the hospital.. try to get outside a little bit. The fresh air will do wonders for your brain...and the body as well. Don't forget to breathe, Pam. I know you don't want to leave your hubby's side, but for 15 minutes... it would be so beneficial.

Again God Bless You and yours...

Much love

    Heavenly Father, I lift Pam and her DH to You, right now! Lord they have evry reason in the world to be frustrated, beaten up, down trodden, and down right MAD! But God, the lifter of their heads, their Bright and Morning Star, The God who knows all and sees all, the God who heals, and the God who gives His peace which passes all understanding, is seeing this through to the end, with them.

Lord, they have cried out to You and other saints have also on their behalf, and You've answered. I hear Your Peace in this blog, God. I hear the ease of suffering and the knowledge and wisdom that only you can dispense. God continue to take care of the both of them, during the rest of the fiery furnace trial. Hold them both in the palm of your hand, and give them Your Rest, Lord. Your Rest.

Lord their prayers may not have been answered the way they would have liked them to be answered, but God what's happening is your will, and for their betterment. Thank you Lord for showing this to them, and continue to impart your wisdom to them. In the matchless name of Jesus. AMEN!!!

What do I expect from the blc challenge?

Friday, September 19, 2014

I expect to do my best and lose this weight. I am a tiger and they are the best, supportive, friendly team. We are all on this journey and expect to keep on working without leaving any tiger behind.
I expect to lose 20 pounds.
I expect to be able to walk for a longer time.
I expect to learn the way to eat to lose and get healthy.

I know I can do this. I have become more motivated and inspired by those on the team. Some are in pain and keep on going. I have been hurting in my hips and feet but I am learning to break through the pain and perservere.

I am expecting our team to do its best and be on top. We are roaaaaaaaarrrrring loud and clear.
Well yes I am and so are all of you. We are all one of a kind, special miracles.
