Finally under 160!

Sunday, November 07, 2010

I'm finally under 160....again. I've been there about 4 times but my body seems to think 160 is perfect. This time I am going to stay under 160, and keep dropping. I am DETERMINED!

Had a pretty good week this week. Missed my walk yesterday and today is pouring buckets so my exercise will consist of runs through the rain to the marina laundry room, and with groceries to the car and boat.

DH and I determined a few weeks ago that we were spending too much money and calories eating out. We had one meal out since October 24, and he ended up having one business lunch out, and we are both have made some progress again. I love saving money and calories at the same time!

Still haven't tried out the hula hoop. I think it is going to be a challenge. Tomorrow if it is nice I'll give it a whirl after work. I hope it will whirl anyway!

Hula Hula

Monday, November 01, 2010

Yesterday DH and I went for an hour and a half walk. Stopped a Borders to sit in the sun and drink and iced tea, then went to Big 5 and bought a hula hoop. Someone at aikido suggested it might help me connect with my center. Acutally I have never hula'd before. But of course you can find how to lessons on youtube! Tonight after work I am taking my hoop to the park to give it a whirl.

Hula anyone? emoticon


20 again in 2010

Sunday, October 31, 2010

That's how I ended my last blog entry about 9 months ago. I think there is still time if I get one it. Less wine during the week, more exercise, more aikido, less food! I started at a size 18 in 2008, and now I am a size 12. Size to here I come! (Dare I dream of seeing 8 again?)


Ok Really, I mean it this time!

I started my diet Dec 1 2008, and by Feb 2009 had lost 20 pounds. Since then I have been maintaining. I want to lose another 20 pounds, but I don't think I can cut any more calories without turning into psycho woman. I need to start tracking calories again, as I suspect that they are creeping up again, though I'm maintaining the 18-20 pound weight loss. And I need more exercise. It's time to get moving again! 20 again in 2010!

  I'm with you I just recently lost 20lbs in 14 weeks. I exercised 3 days a week at the YMCA with a trainer and let me tell you I felt like i was run over by a truck for almost the whole entire time. Our last work out we put on backpacks full of food equal to the weight we loss and worked out. 20 extra pounds was a lot of weight. We donated the food to a local food bank. I know I do not want those 20lbs back emoticon

Living in Interesting times...

Sunday, November 08, 2009

So I had my physical. The big shocker was that I found out I was vitamin B12 deficient. Over the years I depleted my reserves. So I got a giant shot (!!) and sent off to buy sublingual B12 supplements. The change is truly amazing and I started to feel better than ever after only two days. I had no idea I was having symptoms but I was. I am still astounded; I feel like a whole new woman, and when I come home from work I still have energy left to do things, which is still marvelous every day. I also found out I have borderline high blood pressure, and for that I am supposed to lose another ten pounds. That seems hard. I am really good at maintaining right now but can't seem to lose.

When DH had his physical the Dr decided to monitor his gallstones and do nothing for now. That turned out to be a HUGE mistake, and last week we wound up in the emergency room with pancreatitis. He had his gall bladder out last weekend and has been recovering all week. I am now looking for a new primary care provider as I no longer really trust her judgement. I never felt good about her decision to wait and see, and this proved to be a pretty serious mistake.

Work is crazy, and will be at least through the end of the year. Thank goodness for B12 or I would never keep up! She did get that right, but it was a fluke; she just ordered it with my blood work because I am vegetarian.

    Sounds like DH needs a new doctor. I hope he recovers quickly and completely.

I'm glad the B12 worked out for you. It feels good when you find the real answer to a problem.
