What Went- Saturday

Sunday, January 25, 2015      1 comments

1. My mom has a very nice 90th birthday. I'm sorry that my dad is no longer here to celebrate with her but I am glad that she is happy and healthy. She is really enjoying her watercolor class. My kids talked to her on the phone for her birth... Read more

What's Going - Friday

Friday, January 23, 2015      3 comments

I decided to do day 2 of the Formula 40/30/30 plan's 21 Day Fat Flush. I am much less nauseated today. So was that just due to yesterday's menu? Was it because I wasn't quite used to eating so much fiber and protein? The protein amount is th... Read more

What Went - Thursday

Thursday, January 22, 2015      3 comments

Last night after posting my blog listing the pros and cons of staying on my current eating plan or going on the 40/30/30 plan, I actually sat down and entered a sample day on the SP nutrition tracker. That was interesting. The day's calories ... Read more

1. I met with the personal trainer today. He reworked his approach and we spent a lot more time working on stretching and abs. He wants me to give him a report in the next day or so. I'm going to write down how I feel today so that I won't f... Read more

What Went - Tuesday

1. Last night we went to the store and got some better apples. Honeycrisp apples. I paid extra but they are soooooo good. 2. Today I went to the supplement store and got the colon version of the Ultima Flora brand of probiotics. I hope... Read more

Breakfast on Monday

Monday, January 19, 2015      7 comments

I'm being both a saint and a rebel this morning. I found a website last night that was very helpful in helping me to figure out foods for the 40/30/30 diet recommended by my personal trainer. What helped is that it gave me (using a calculator)... Read more

What Went - Sunday

Sunday, January 18, 2015      4 comments

Nailed my 6000 plus step goal again. This is becoming a habit! :) I tracked my food. I'm getting angry with macros. I wish I'd never heard of them. Since trying to follow the personal trainer's recommendations I've gained 3 pounds. No... Read more

Some Saturday Chuckles

Saturday, January 17, 2015      6 comments

Just to give a counterbalance to my grump earlier. I took ds to the family night at the Y. He had fun playing with their interactive exercise games. He was doing one where he was kicking these lighted displays as they lit up in different ... Read more

A Saturday Grump

Saturday, January 17, 2015      5 comments

I'm going to grump here for a minute. Grump. I wish that I hadn't asked for the personal trainer for my birthday. I hate being back in constant pain again. And now I'm all uptight about my food when before I felt pretty good eating all my fr... Read more

Ratios Smatios

Friday, January 16, 2015      5 comments

I hated ratios in school. I hate ratios in real life! And now the personal trainer wants me to keep my macros to 40% carbs / 30% fat / 30% protein. I am really struggling to get my protein up to even 20%. I cannot eat any more meat! And I k... Read more

What Went - Wednesday

Friday, January 16, 2015      5 comments

Despite pain today that I already blogged about, I still went to the Y and walked on the treadmill and gave Rocky his evening walk. I am not very far over 6000 steps, but I made my goal. I've put holds on a bunch of Zone and The Formula bo... Read more

Wibbly Wobbly Ball of Pain

Thursday, January 15, 2015      3 comments

I'm typing this out partly as a way to think with my fingers. Help from fitness experts and fibromyalgia sufferers wanted especially, please. Yesterday I worked out with a personal trainer for the first time. We did about 15 min. of basi... Read more

Personal Trainer - First Session

Wednesday, January 14, 2015      7 comments

I met with the personal trainer this morning. It was a combination work-out and assessment. To his credit he did not seem to be frustrated when I could not give him good feedback on whether things hurt or not. The problem is that I don't fee... Read more

What Went - Tuesday

Tuesday, January 13, 2015      6 comments

1. I mastered 5th grade on Khan academy! LOL The story behind that is that now that dd is working on 6th grade stuff, she told me "Mom, you should do Khan too." I do have a LD in math so I think she wants to make sure I can help her as she... Read more

What Went - Monday

Monday, January 12, 2015      6 comments

1. We handed in ds17's work paperwork to the grocery store. Because we homeschool I had to fill out school paperwork for the Dept. of Labor and Industries. I didn't know that schools have a say in whether teens work, as well as the parents. ... Read more
