Day 12.... I will not, I am not

Friday, September 12, 2014

Getting sick, no cold, bronchitis nothing....geez. I love my honey but he gets sick and always say it's not a cold but two days later I'm sick too. I drink my emergen C and do my best to not get it but here I am today feeling like dung...if it wasn't for this class I'd be home in my bed. It's suppose to rain all day which makes the office colder because there's no sun beaming in. I'm fighting back...

Yesterday was good with the exception of my dinner. I went over my calories by 100 yesterday. Today I'm low carb and trying to keep on track. I just had my high carb breakfast and got a smoothie and fruit for the rest of the day. Not sure what's for dinner yet but it will be low carb.

Day #11

Thursday, September 11, 2014 I see that (re yesterday's blog)

Morning I skipped yesterday's post for some reason. I'm in class this week so I have a little time to do my morning routine before it's time to go. But I'm hanging in there on this journey. I walked on Tuesday for a little while. But I didn't do any exercises yesterday. My sinuses/allergies were giving my grief. The weather changes here have not been my friend. Today I'm trying to come out of a Benadryl fog.

But it's my high carb day and I'm hoping that I get in a workout today. These long days and the drive have been discouraging my workouts. I got to fig a bit harder.

No time too prof so I hope it makes sense

Day #9 this ain't easy

Tuesday, September 09, 2014

This journey, food journaling, carb cycling, exercising. It's almost like having a part-time job if you're doing it right. I guess once I make this food journaling a habit it won't be such a daunting task. I was quite short on my food intake yesterday. I'm in an all day training class that's very interactive so I got a lil side tracked with my eating yesterday. Hopefully today that won't happen. I have my meals planned lil better today since it's a high carb day. It's on the low carb days I'm dropping which is good and bad. I'm consuming about 300 calories less on those days. I realized that lentils are very high in carbs a bit too late yesterday. Can't quite figure that out but on WW I stayed within my points and had 8 leftover for the day.

I skipped my workout yesterday. Got out of class late and I drove to work instead of taking the train and that commute home was no joke.

My honey decided to check me last nite about my journey. I guess that's what happens when you ask the SO to help you stay focused. He was asking why I don't make my smoothies anymore? I didn't tell him I was trying the carb cycling for this month. But I told him last nite. I didn't tell him I lost 3.2 this week either. I've been giving everyone a bi weekly update but I leave him out of the text. I want him to notice the changes on his own. I guess he's noticing my limping and aches more than body changes. But I do appreciate the fact he hasn't forgotten the yeah

Well I almost finished my gallon yesterday. I drank more than 3/4 of it. Again the class I'm in during the day played a small key in me not finishing. Today I'll make more of an effort to drink, eat and workout like I'm requiring myself to do. Less than 4 months left in thi year and I want to be changed.

And then the 8th day came ...weigh in results

Monday, September 08, 2014

Howdie doodie time!!!

Last week was my first week of attempting carb cycling. I started on Sunday and my first weigh in was Saturday morning. I'm down 3.2#s!!! I'm now closer to my goal of 265#s...about a pound away...yes!!! This week I'm going to try and get back to working out. I took a few days off to give my knee and foot a break. They were giving me grief so I listened to my body and spark friends and rested. Even if I can't get any cardio in this week I at least want to get back to lifting.

I will continue cycling my carbs this week. I've managed to journal my food every day as well. Hopefully I can get a better understanding of meal planning and lowering my carbs a bit more on my low carb days. Not sure if I can expect this kind of loss weekly. It it will be nice if I can get 2#s a week. I'll be happy with any loss at this point but I'm asking for what i want and keeping it before me. I will definitely leave the 260s this month if weight loss continues like this.

So this week I keep doing what got me down 3.2#s last week. Journaling my food, cycling carbs, drinking my gallon daily and back to working out. Let's see what happens this week.

    Hooray, keep up the good work! Maybe you can do some workouts that don't affect your knee or foot (I have bad ankles and knees, so I understand!). I think there's a "chair workout" on the Spark website that is supposed to be quite a good work out!

On the 5th day....

Friday, September 05, 2014

We keep moving forward and we don't quit!!!

Yesterday was high carb day. Did well and I did better getting closer to using all my points/calories for the day. Finished my gallon of water before bedtime. No workout. I decided to give my foot/leg/knee a break for a few days. Hopefully today I'll get around to lifting. I found a bike shop online that refurbishes used bikes so I want to go by there hopefully this weekend. Hopefully I can find a bike that I can ride when my legs/knees can't take the pounding. I don't like missing my workouts :(For once I want to have a period of time where I'm doing the full journey correctly all the way around. Not 10% here and 50% there but 100% in every category, eating, journaling, water, cardio and weights and mentally all in. Not just one day but lots of days.

Well here's the a wake tonight and funeral tomorrow so I know most of my day will be taken. So I'll do what I can as far as working out. My honey will possibly be gone for two weeks for training and I'm hoping to accomplish some goals in this journey while he's away. I won't have the distractions that he so nicely provides :).

Big thank you to Sugar0814 and all those that stop by and comment on my blog. I haven't figured out how to get onto your page from my iPad but I read and I'm grateful for your comments. Thank you
