It has been very challenging

Thursday, August 07, 2014

I was only able to do one workout of Jillian's body revolution, I turned out that I was not as fit as I remembered. emoticon

I have been struggling with a skin infection problem. It seems to be tied to an overgrowth of Candida perhaps. What this means is that my insulin resistance has reared its ugly emoticon little head, and I need to ratchet down the emoticon calories, the emoticon carbs, and increase the cardio. It's kind of hard to do when you have an infection on the inside of your leg. So painful. I am taking olive oil, garlic emoticon oil capsules, triphala, and gymnema. That should help cut down my sugar and fungal population.

I bought myself four new DVDs from the 10 minutes solution series. Including the yoga emoticon for beginners, that blasting Latin emoticon dance mix, Boot emoticon Camp, and rapid results emoticon fat burner. I like the 10 minutes solution series because I can tailor it to how much energy I think I have. Sometimes I can only do 10 minutes and sometimes I can do an hour. I will save the Jillian Michaels body revolution for later.

My brother is doing very well with his diabetes diagnosis. He is weighing emoticon himself every day. He is checking his blood sugar with the blood sugar monitor. He is watching what he eats. He is still trying to find things to eat that taste good to him but he is what's called a super taster so unless it's super sweet, super sugary, and super fatty he thinks it tastes terrible. His super taster mouth will probably get him killed. He is over 150 pounds overweight.

    I am in a similar place. I need to cut back on calories and carbs and up the exercise. My tummy is too big.

I hope you get rid of your skin infection soon.

I have a new exercise thing - Zumba Gold. I have not tried it yet.

I hope your brother does well with his diabetes. Maybe he can reverse it.

body revolution

Monday, July 21, 2014

I am starting Jillian Michaels' body revolution this morning. She also includes a balanced diet that has focus on healthy fats emoticon and proteins. emoticon So I'm going to give it a whirl. Today we start with weight training for 30 minutes. emoticon The program covers 90 days. I may add some of my other cardio workouts to fill it out. Her workouts are only 30 minutes each. But, as my mother reminds me, I need to ease back into this. I had a terrible fall several weeks ago and my left hand is not entirely perfect yet. However my sprained ankle is completely healed now emoticon

    That must have been quite some fall!!! I hope you are fully recovered now and that the new program and plan works for you. I'm always afraid to try anything by Jillian. LOL. 30 minutes of her would do me in.

    Your mother is right (as they always are!) ease back in and don't re-injure yourself or get discouraged

I forgot that triscuits were fattening

Saturday, May 24, 2014

Dang it. emoticon

2 pound penalty. emoticon

I hate it when I make mistakes like that. emoticon

This is so frustrating, because I have just really been very good about watching my portion size all week. But one mistake, can lead to a couple of pounds gained. emoticon

Moving moving moving

Monday, May 12, 2014

For the last couple of days, I have been helping my friends move from one apartment to the next. I am really sore from moving boxes. emoticon

I am being good about watching what I eat. When we stop for emoticon food, I drink iced tea, emoticon unsweetened. And, I eat half the entrée not the whole thing. emoticon

My goals for the summer are to study for a professional exam in the fall and to lose weight. I am taking some time off from work to focus on my studies so that I will do well on my exam. And, I am staying focused on weight loss.

    Well all the exercise from moving will certainly get you closer to your goals! And you are helping friends! You should do well on the exam.

I love tea. It's my favorite beverage.

Good luck with the exam!

The only way out is through

Wednesday, May 07, 2014

Sometimes, the only way out of the situation is to go through it. That applies to weight-loss too. I am finally done with my big projects. So now it is time to focus on myself. I have cleaned up my room. It's nearly impossible to work out without space to do it.

I have a bunch of new DVDs. And today I am trying Kathy Smith's flex appeal. emoticon

This is the last week of spring for us. We expect to see the low 90s emoticon by the end of next week.

My current diet plan is:

Number one: exercise emoticon for 30 minutes five days a week before breakfast. emoticon
Number two: eat at least one serving of emoticon vegetables with every meal
Number three: eat within my calorie emoticon range of 1200 to 1300 cal per day five days a week
Number four: meditate emoticon for at least 15 to 20 minutes every night before bed
Number five: journal every day emoticon

    I could use more room to work out too. Your goals are always good. I need to do the same ones.
