Hello, it's me again...
Five months since I posted? wow, time flies. We won't say when you're having fun tho. Been a stressful first half of the year.
But then what's new?
Well, one thing is new...I started going to a personal trainer/training studio last wee... Read more
7 days of prednisone....and I'm so crabby today I can barely stand myself. Weight loss has, as expected on steroids, completely stopped and in fact I regained 2 pounds even tho being pretty much on plan.
Today is allergy testing, and while... Read more
Week one - Done
What an interesting week!
No sugar/dairy/grain for a week was an adventure...but then the cheat day came and that was really an adventure! The nutritionist built in a cheat day - and I'm so glad she did. Said this is the day to eat whateve... Read more
I can honestly say, this is the longest I can remember sticking to a plan and not cheating. Seriously. While that's sad on one level, it's very motivating on many others.
Interesting things (to me at least) are:
With the removal of consta... Read more
2+ days sugar free. I have been hit with a virus, so have slept a good portion of the day away - keeping cravings to a minimum.
On track - even tho I feel like crap. go me! Kids brought home a pizza and I have to admit, I looked at the lon... Read more
I wonder how many Day 1's I've had?
I suspect it doesn't bear too much thinking about.
What I'm doing differently? I got a coach. A friend did a nutrition certification program at the local college and I thought, "hmm. I coach dancers... Read more
Day in Day out
I may be quiet lately, but I'm doing it.
Wearing my CPAP.
Taking my meds/supplements.
Eating more veggies.
Workouts have gone from nothing for too long to hardcore dance/drill workouts 3 x a week that encompass a 45 minute 'warm ... Read more
Back in the Saddle
Saturday I was able to do the 5K at Sunriver Marathon for a Cause. I was signed up for the 10K, but after the back spasm it just wasn't to be. I'm glad I made it through the 5K and - after over a week of being out with my back - pleased to say I... Read more
Getting back to normal
Been a week since my back muscle spasm. Back is much better, tho not completely healed.
pretty sure I'm not going to be able to do the 10K Sunday, tho I haven't completely given up. I might be able to make one loop (5k or about 3 miles)...... Read more
Learning self care
Things were going along. My walking was lagging a bit due to some commitments, but this weekend I was going to be back on it. Notice the use of the past tense, was.
Then last night I pulled my back. I had the audacity to try something as r... Read more
Day in, and Day out
Here we are, another week on the way.
The scale is back down to 245. That sticky point.
I work on 10K steps a day, and most days I've exceeded it, and some I haven't. It would be easy to fall into the self critical mode of thinking -... Read more
What's more important here?
Far too often, I am ruled by the numbers on the scale. Too many times, I've given the numbers the power to choose my mood, my feelings about myself. For months, I did not weigh at ALL...but there also was no success in that for me because withou... Read more
Back to where I was...
Before the Unfortunate Chinese at Lunch Incident/McDonald's Breakfast Snafu of last week: 245.
The next drop is going to be the test. I have been able to get to 244, and stay there for oh, a day. That's been going on for well about a year... Read more
Roller coaster on the scale and roller coaster emotions.
Scale is up 3 pounds, but let's review last week: Chinese food for lunch put me wayyyyy over limit, ate at McDonald's for breakfast 2 x over the weekend before I looked it up....Ahem.... Read more
I may not know much, but what I do know is this....
I so appreciate all the great comments on my eating at McDonald's post!
Yes, it's true, there are less-terrible choices and if one is diligent...one can eat ANYWHERE, can't we?
Um, except perhaps for me.
I know myself. ... Read more
