No Snow storm, good day so far

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

Walking 2 Well this morning I had my usual (which, for some reason, I'm not like most people it seems like, I love having the same thing for breakfast, my peanut butter cheerios, milk, and hard boiled I weird? oh and don't forget my skim milk!)

I got my exercises down, and was checking the amount, and if I keep up like I am, I'll be OVER for my exercises and calories burned, that's WONDERFUL!! I'm so excited, I think it'll be the first week I'm over, PLUS my doctor has been wanting me to do 30 mins 3 times a day, and I've been doing 32 mins EVERY DAY!

It's almost like getting up and brushing my teeth, the only thing I wish I had were some dumbells, but for now I'm using 2 cans, one a "Healthy Choice" soup can, and the other a "Chili Beans" can (hopefully my husband won't want chili soon. :D

Anyway, The snowstorm we were supposed to have went south, so looks like not much is going to happen here. I'd be happy if it melted (but I LOVE snow) and I'd try getting out and walking daily, like I used to. Now I'm excited about doing that, believe that or not!!

Anyway, looks like another great day, I hope you all have a great one also!

Bounce Today I could tell I'd done a workout, I think I've finally gotten down exactly which muscles should be worked the back (sides) are a little sore, not horribly, just a tinge, so I must have been working the right muscles. :)

Upon coming to my page today I saw I'd gotten a couple gifts, that really upped my spirits, thank you everyone, what a way to make someone feel good, I've got to figure out how to do it, and I think, from looking at my page I have.

I'm surprised I've stayed with this as long as i have, and it's mainly from reading the pages of others, and the encouragement, and especially, the help with the nutrition and exercise area. I've never had that before and now I'm motivated to stick with it. Thank you, SP, for all that you do for those like myself. What a wonderful program!


Not good

Saturday, February 23, 2013

Confused I feel really crummy because I didn't get the chance to get my exercise in, I had to ride 2 hours to get to my aunt's funeral, and then another 2 hour ride back, straight to church, then to eat supper with my mom, husband, and son. We just now got home, and well...I miss one day of my exercise (7Xweek) and I really feel bad about it.

I'm going to see if I can't get it in now, keeping my fingers crossed, but I'm going to work on it, I just hope the way it affects my insulin, I don't have a reaction at 2am, which happens with me and exercise. Such a vicious circle.

Anyway, tomorrow's another day, as they say.

I did it, I made my goal for the week..yes, I did do my exercises for tonight....and I actually lifted my feet off the floor!! BIG YEAH FOR THAT! First time I think I've done that all the way through. Ok, enough for today, just had to update after my first one where I wasn't sure I'd get it in today, but I did. :D I'm a happy lady! emoticon

Buried In Snow
Well, getting the snow that was expected, but not quite as much, at least not yet, only have about 3" or so.

I did my exercises this morning, then looked at my calories burned and was shocked.

1050 / 930

I thought I'd be under in my calories burned, wow...I hope I can keep this up, I'm loving it...I'm doing it and not even realizing it. That's only for the week, but still! I still have 30 to go for this week exercise minutes, but I still have one day to go too, and that'll be my final 30 minutes (or 32 is what I've been trying to do, some days I do 42 minutes, it all depends.)

I'm really getting into this more and more as each day passes, I didn't think I would, but I am, it's wonderful.


Mmmm...weight loss or not?

Thursday, February 21, 2013

emoticon I'm not really sure if I'd lost weight or miscalculated, the scales say I weigh 257 pounds, but I would have swore I'd been up to 275 or so, so I'm not sure, at least now I have a definite one according to the Doctor's office.

And I think I've got a new way to figure out my high blood sugars at lunch, I've lowered my 10am insulin and added more to my 8 am one, let's keep our fingers crossed that my blood sugars at lunch come down and at supper come up. I've been having highs at lunch and lows at supper. I'd thought the exercise was lasting through, which I still think it is, but we'll see. Exercise tends to always affect me later in the day, we'll see today, as the exercise I had was all walking...that and shivering while at the cemetery reading to Dad, like I've been trying do while in town (something I promised to do for him just before he passed away last year, finish reading "Lonesome Dove" to him.)

Anyway, I'm not feeling too bad, I need to exercise today, haven't done it yet and yes, I'm late, so I'll do that now. Have a great one, everyone.
