Back, but sick

Saturday, March 01, 2014

Came back on the 23rd, was feeling a bit sick, just a minor sore throat. Haven't been back to the gym since, just feeling crappy. Feel like I'm getting a bit worse each day since I got back. Will try and post some pics of Thailand when I'm feeling better.


So much...

Friday, January 17, 2014

watching what I eat and tons of walking and the gym for me lately, seems like I am down to 158ish or so, haven't recorded it though, finally got around to marking it to 160. Wanna give it a few more days, then most likely will move it properly. Surprisingly, not doing so bad for losing the weight. No set date of when I want it gone, body will make up it's own mind when I get closer to my final weight of whether or not I'm supposed to be at what I'm supposed to be at. Just want it to be 150 or so pounds (hopefully more, looks like it might be at this rate) when I go see the doctor in late May with my blood work stuff.

Going to Thailand in less than a month, will be fun, will be interesting with what they have to offer for food wise. For a friend's destination wedding. At a Buddist temple, I think. It'll be worth going, expensive, but when will I ever go back.

Anyways, off for bed. Just needed to jot a few things down before I forget.

This week so far...

Thursday, December 12, 2013

hasn't exactly gone the way I had hoped. Monday, went to the gym, had plans to go for dinner with a friend who unfortunately was under the weather for herself, can't be helped. I wished I had known, but there was no way of knowing otherwise I would have done some Christmas cooking. Tuesday was a free lunch at work, it was my day off, so, off I went, found out it got moved to Friday, seriously, again, would have done my cooking then, but couldn't. I couldn't yesterday, I was busy, I like me time at the gym, plus I had to work. I like to take my time when it comes to cooking and baking, esp. when it come to Christmas meals as presents. Today, I made plans with my mom to go shopping, my brother surprisingly decline. His foot has been hurting, so to walk, it's hard. We were supposed to go to Costco, but her car, even though it was plugged in, the car wouldn't start. So no go. Tomorrow is hopefully the lunch at work, if the car works tomorrow, my mom will give me a shout on my cell, hopefully we can go. Thing was I wanted to cook all day tomorrow, only if the lunch didn't get moved to Friday. Though, hopefully it'll work out for shopping for my mom and I.

Now it looks like I'll be cooking meals for family members on Tuesday. Assuming it doesn't get bumped. Some people would like premade meatloaf and potatoes (ie, hubby), homemade spaghetti sauce (ie, brother), apparently my famous lemon cookies (no idea how that happened) for a dinner on Christmas day at my grandma-in-law's apartment block. And also extra other things I have fun making anyways. Made a few things already, hubby already was caught eating my sugar cookies. They were presents for others, I never did tell him oh by the way please don't snack on these to him, my own fault in a way, but easy to make new ones anyways. No harm. I could have told him, but he'd probably feel bad, it's good to know he likes my food (otherwise hopefully he would have told me so), it's just easier to make new, fresher ones, the more, the merrier.

Some people have asked me am I done shopping for presents? For the most part, yes, baking and cooking, not so much. It'll end up fine in the end.

What a day

Wednesday, October 30, 2013

It feels like I just got back from the gym, had lunch, now feeling funny in the head. Not sure what to make of it. Feel woosey for some reason, did eat which I needed, maybe it wasn't the right kind of food possibly. Had a poached egg, slice of cheese, a slice of bacon, and 2 slices of toast. Was thinking of PB&J sandwich, but a bit tired of that, had what seems like too much lately. Easy to make for work, don't have to think too much for that. Well, we'll see what happens, wait a bit, then see if I need to snack on anything later.

Back to normal for shifts at work. 15-25 hours a week now. Been working quite a bit, missed going to the gym though. Only lucky if I got 1 a week. Went back the other day, ran into this one guy that's an a$$, the impression I got from him when I talked to him outside the gym was that he's God's gift to women, even if they are married, hint, hint. Um, no, you don't know what kind of a relationship I have with my husband, so do not assume anything. Apparently, there's a shirt out there that says I'm poly, bi and kinky and the answer is still no! Sadly, he would probably find that as a challenge. I saw him, I just ignored him (I always listen to my ipod, can't live without it at the gym), if he asks, I'll just tell him off. One nice thing, there are a few gym members there that I've had small conversations there, I'm sure that if they had to, they may back me up if there's anything that goes awry. No gaurentee, I know, but still, I also see them at my work as well, so you never know.

Well, off to relax, crochet and watch tv until 4pm or so, then off to Sears to look at Dishwashers with hubby.

Didn't know what to put into the title, seems fitting for some odd reason.

Been busy all week. Worked Monday-Friday, 1015-615. Did not get to do any workouts whatsoever until this morning. Felt good to be back at the gym. I dislike working out in the evenings, I like that time to be my downtime. I don't want to be at the gym at 6am. Those who do it, there's a reason, I don't like to wake up early unless it's for work or off to drive to my vacation destination. So, going before 8am, not my thing at the moment. Extra money for my trip to Thailand for someone I know whose getting married there at a buddhist temple. That'll be fun.

Anyways, even though I didn't exercise much this week, I am surprized I actually lost a pound. Some days, I was low on my calories or my protein. A few days I was good everywhere except my calories , was 200 calories below, but I was not hungry, no point in forcing myself to eat more calories, then be over in the other ranges. Still a learning process. Either be low on protein or calories, tough one, esp. if I'm still figuring out what's good. Haven't really eaten much candy items. Still bad for eating out, like to Subway. Subway is somewhat better than McDonald's Big Mac and fries. At. least I'm eating the veggies.

This coming week is back to normal shifts, so, I'll get my gym time that I crave. It'll be that time of month for me and I'll either maintain my weight or lose up to 3 pounds or so. Time will tell. Maybe I'll call my doc about my ultrasound and see if he needs to see me, most likely I do.

    I really don't like exercising in the evenings either. I've found that lunchtime works well for me --- it gets me away from my desk and makes me much more alert in the afternoon. Luckily, my manager doesn't have an issue with that.
Thailand sounds awesome... I've never been there.
