I have been trying to get my weight down exercise up and my eating right. I was on cholesterol med and once I started really working out and eating better the dr was willing to try me off meds. I was doing good. I just went to have blood work done and my cholesterol is up. Now the dr wants to talk to me about it. The sad part is I lost another 1.5 pounds this week. I am so bummed. I just don't know what to do or how to make it better.

    That is a bummer. Perhaps they will allow you more time given your recent efforts to make improvements in your health. Congrats on the weight loss!

    I would just relax and see what the doc says first. Don't panic and stop doing what you are doing cause it will be for you health in the long haul.

God bless & way to go on 1.5lbs!

    I would see if the dr will let you "ride" it out for a little while. Your body has to catch up!!

Boy this has been a very busy week for me. I haven't had much time to spend on here this week. The good news is I have been able to exercise every day and my eating well lets just say it is getting better. I had a few days where junk food found its way into my mouth.

Today one of my daughters comes home from college. I am excited but a little worried about my routine. It is so much harder with them here and all the holiday food. I am determined to track everything that goes into my mouth and adjust my eating if needed. I am also going to try to boost my exercise to help combat some of the bad stuff I may eat. I know that isn't the way we should do it but .....

    It's harder for me to do well when I'm not in my usual routine, too. Try to remain mindful of what you eat, and get as much activity as you can. Mostly, enjoy your daughter and family!

  You are making progress, thats what counts. You have a plan to deal with your slips. That will help get you through the rough times. Get your daughters to join you in some of your execises. You will get it done and they may enjoy doing them with you.

Today was another good day. My husband Is doing better and the pneumonia is clearing up. We were able to do some Christmas shopping which made me feel like it is ok for Christmas to come. I was also able to get in 2 ten min workouts and a bootcamp video. I also stayed in my food ranges. it feels so good to be motivated again.

God shines the brightest when things are the darkest. Heard a great message on unbelief today. It really made me think. We all can go through a time of unbelief. We must prepare for it and be ready. We also must be patient to those who are going through it. But the good news is we are forgiven and restored. Then had a great walk this afternoon. I wish winter would stay like this. Maybe it is time to move a little south.

I am back

Saturday, December 08, 2012

I am out of my slump. I have done well most of this week. I am back to exercising and it feels so good. I think some of it was the weather has been nice enough to walk outside. There is something about being outside. I was thinking about walking outside even in cold weather but the thing is the snow and ice. so I am not sure what I'll do when that comes. I can do stuff inside but it is not as fun. There is something about the fresh air. I am just glad i am back. I look back and wonder why I was so down.

    That's great! I love outdoor walking too - it's probably my favorite form of exercise. I can sometimes handle walking in the cold, but I do understand what you mean about the snow and ice - it often creates dangerous conditions and it's so easy to slip and fall. So happy you've had a good week!

    emoticon You are doing great! Don't you fret! You need to give yourself a break now and then. Remember, it's not all about weight loss and exercise. You are still making conscious decisions that will benefit your health and well being. About the snow and cold. Did you know that you burn more calories by walking in the snow? So, you can allow yourself as little as 15 minutes out side to get great results!

    Glad you had a GREAT week!

Check out those SP video's...even Youtube seems to have some great selections for working out inside. I was kind of surprised on that one since I've been a video exerciser for years, I've never had the need for it...but I love options.

Keep up the great work.

    Great! Congratulations on a good week! I have found it helpful to join the 10 minute a day exericse challenge. By committing to ten minutes a day, 've been able to develop a consistent pattern of exercise. Check out the Spark People exercise videos for those cold winter indoor days.
