POLYANNA2 - ONTARIO

Challenges keep me motivated and I am thrilled to have spent such a successful spring challenge with all my four-legged, floppy-eared puppy pals on the Spirited Underdogs team. The kennel gate will be opening up shortly and we'll be off and running for the Summer 5% Challenge. I can't wait!!! 2014 is going to be a great year. Onederland is my goal.

My commitment to fitness will be to keep this body moving throughout every day but also include a minimum of 30 minutes of structured exercise 6 days per week.
On the intake side of things, I am following the SP food guide but tweaking it to include only foods with high anti-oxidant values and anti-inflammatory properties. I guess you could call it an anti-arthritis diet.

HI hon !! I hardly ever hit those "gotta eat the WHOLE HOUSE" thangs, but yeah ,,, about once out of a month it happens. THANKFULLY I am fine again and aiming for a 2 lb loss,, am already on Tues AM,,, at the 208 mark,,, so now to hit the 207 mark !!

BUT !! I MAY???? Have to stop losing, and load up on diff forms of food,,, I have a pressure sore developing,,, hmm of course on my hiney,, why couldn[t it be an elbow??? my shoulder??? NOOOOO it HAS to be to where I gotta DRoP my PANTS !! SHEESHE MAN !!! I hate that !!! I need to call Dr back tomorrow,,, earlier,,, I couldn't tell if it was warmer than the surrounding skin,, now I can,, so yeah,,, with my fancy cast on,,nnd NOT supposed to be moving OFF the couch,,, I can this happening,, it'll need some attending to. She today sent me some pics thru email,, its either stage 1 (no broken skin )or 2,,,, which I suspect,,, since it looks like a bruise,, it has developed under the skin,,,, which is what my foot uclers always do. So time will tell. I SURAH do get tired of negative things happening. The surg,, than the flu ,,,, then the bbugs (THANKFLLY to my 2 friends coming down,,, and steaming my place they were here for 10 days and GONE ! PHEW !) and NoW this !!

how does one with PAWS UP In the Air do this????

I am closely watching my cals,,, I have greatly REDUDED THEM !! OH YEAH !!! That's a PLUS for me,,, though as said earlier I was SOOOO HUNGRY !!! OH YEAH !!! Than today,,,,, its BACK to NORMAL !! YEAH !!

I am ALSO not just trying to lay here,,,, I can use my weights,, and also work on my core, as long as my leg (left one with the yellow cast (neon) LOL ,, Up to my knee does NOT move, or be tightened with the rest of the lower body,, takes some real control,, but I've been doing this for yrs,,, so I CAN do it. I WANT to lose NOT ONLY LBS,, and MAKE the 5% !!!!! AND I DO WANT THAT BADLY !(That ALSO helps,, for I keep on envisioning it ! My goal is 203 ! From 214 ! WOOHOOOO !!!!! I am currently at as of last Fri 209,,,, that's keeping 2 lbs on for the cast weight,, though it MAY weigh 4 lbs, so when that FINALLY comes OFF on the 25th,, I Expect to lose a little, but !! I get A NEW cast on,, just NOT so high !!! I can ask them if they know how much it weighs,, but then they will KNOW I've been dangling my foot down (NO WEIGHT) and they DO NOT want me too, but I am a SCALE OBBESSED person. I HAVE to JUMP on it,, 5 or MORE times a DAY !! OH YEAH !! WICKLY OBESSED !! It HELPS me though. I am QUITE proud of it. :) If the house caught on fire,,, I'd have to decide,, between Izzy and the SCALE !! WHICH do I LOVE MORE?? HAHAHAHA !! POOR Izzah !!!! She's such a GOOD Gal !!!! She's SO JEALOUS of the puter,,,, she'll stay away sleeping (CATS !! WISH I was LIKE THAT !),,,, most of the day, but when I normally grab puter at night,,, she's ALL OVER ME !! LOL BRAT ! "BRAT CAT" is one of her MANY names !

And I TRACK ALL (I Didn't yesterday) but almost ALWAYS do I TRACK ALL !!! WOOHOOOO !!! I am NOT adding in the exercise extra cals to burn off,,, since I do not often sweat that much,,, normally I DO count this, when I am ding yoga which I HOPEFULLY can still do,,, we need to find out,, for that toe will be extremely fragile, but I ADORE Yoga,,,, and twisting around my body,, it's the OLD gymnast in me !

Hon,, how are YOU doing with the challenge?

Doing okay today, Carol. One of my problems is that I really, really don't like to exercise. I've never been able to say "I feel so much better after I exercise!" I KNOW it helps to beuild stamina and develop my core muscles. I KNOW I have better flexibility. I just don't like doing it. I used to dance in my kitchen all the time when we had satellite tv, but since moving our service doesn't provide music. Yesterday I was at Walmart and bought a Richard Simmons "Dancing to the Oldies" DVD and just danced (as best I could...LOL) to the old time music. The time goes faster and I know I get my HR up, and I certainly am sweating!! emoticon Anyway, I'm going to use that as much as I can over the next few weeks and see if I can get a handle on this exercise thing!! Glad you like the HII walking. It gives you something different to focus on, I think!! emoticon
