  • Exercise helps my busy days

    8/31/2016 7:51:22 PM, by SHIRE33

    What a day. Ran this morning. Took Dad to breakfast. The girls couldn't come to work today (one has a sick child and she drives the other one). But I got all the harvesting done myself for the CSA. Also put a pork roast in sauerkraut in the Instant Pot on slow cooker setting and that worked great. D... Read more

  • Today

    8/31/2016 6:36:58 PM, by BLUEROSE73

    No need for a kick in the butt. I've already finished my run, and even got in enough steps for my stepbet. This morning I had to be in Regina early for a podiatry appointment. So it was a dry run at seeing what I can get done, how fast I can get it done, and what time I can get into Weyburn... Read more

  • Thank you spark, I'm ok

    8/31/2016 10:34:27 AM, by BEACHCALSIX

    Just want to let everyone know I'm ok. I'm stable now, I don't feel like it but the doctors assured me nothing life threatening is going on. However, they did strongly urge me to stay on bed rest for awhile and to see a gastro specialist. Apparently I'm a medical mystery to them. At the ER the... Read more

  • Beck Diet Solution Day 5 ~ haven't moved on

    8/31/2016 10:02:28 AM, by WINACHST

    I have not been faithful in my daily tasks. For some reason, I just cannot seem to make a commitment to myself to get with it. Day 6, find a diet coach, may be the reason. It makes me so aware of how alone I am. I have no friends and cannot rely on my family (they just take from me and do not give).... Read more

    8/30/2016 11:12:05 AM, by WNDRWMNJESS

    I sometimes hate telling people I am working on a healthier lifestyle/losing weight.

    So it finally happened. The week I thought maybe I was by-passing this time did indeed rear its ugly head this week. I knew it all week long too as I couldn't help but sneak peeks at the scale every day only to be discouraged that my weight was staying the same every time. Then as an added bonus, it... Read more

    8/29/2016 12:38:19 AM, by MICKEY86X

I've stuck to the 1200 cal per day and I am exercising 3x a week. and while I seem to be looking smaller in the mirror the scale hasn't gone down so far all week. First week lost 10.8 lbs. This week, nothing ... Read more

  • Thinking about carbohydrates and activity levels ...

    8/28/2016 11:17:23 PM, by JEANKNEE

    One of the things I've learned in recent weeks is that my carb intake is going to be something that will likely vary with activity levels. Given my current sedentary state, to remain free of inflammation and poor fluid function, it's been necessary to reduce my intake of carbohydrates. Carb in... Read more

    8/28/2016 8:25:43 PM, by JEANKNEE

    Things are certainly settling down on the inflammatory front. There's still work to do. But, overall things are MUCH better.
