a busy day but another one tomorrow

Thursday, June 25, 2009

Today was a long and busy day. Didn't even do our exercises. Dad wanted to but I was tired and my period was making my back sore about mid back. So we skipped it for today. I think that dad will be skipping it tomorrow because he is going to be seeing a doctor tomorrow about his right arm. He already knows that he has arthritis in his legs. I'm going to be doing my exercises tomorrow while he's doing that. It's either do my exercises or sit in the waiting room at the doctor's office while he's seeing the doctor and being bored. I did 3 days ago when dad had a doctor's appointment in the morning. This appointment tomorrow is in the afternoon. I'll be doing that this coming Monday because he has 2 doctor's appointments.

It was a hot day today. It got up to the mid 90s and the heat index got to at least 104 to 105. That's way too hot. It's going to be hot when dad and I leave on July 15th for Minnesota to visit my oldest brother and his family. I'm going to see if my sister-in-law and I can exercise together while we're up there. I'll ask her when I chat with her next time.

  


HOT HOT HOT

Tuesday, June 23, 2009

Today is going to be a really hot day. In the mid to upper 90s today with the heat index in the 100s. You can guess where I'm going to be today. Already took Lady for 2 walks already and that's about it on being outside besides getting in and out of the truck. I'm hoping to stay inside to exercise today. Maybe do my workout up in Galesburg today. I'm going to go the longest today. If dad decides to stop before I'm finished, I'll go tell him to go see his brother that is in the same hospital as we do our exercises at while I'm working out like we did yesterday when he was at the doctor's office.

I'm not sure if I'm going to do a whole lot today when dad and I go do our exercise today or not. I'm on my period (started yesterday when I went to do them yesterday and I'm glad that I had some protection with me when I needed it) and I hate doing a lot of exercises when I'm on it. Oh well. At least it'll help me in getting some of the weight off.

    I hear you about the heat and heat index. I want to go outside and do some weeding in my flower beds but the humidity and heat can really catch a person by surprise. I can totally understand about working out on your period, it can make a person feel miserable at times, but from some articles I have read in the past. exercising while on your period is very beneficial. I hope the best for you, your father, and uncle. And that the recovery process continues to go smoothly for your dad and his brother that is in the hospital. Take it easy and enjoy your day! emoticon

a warm day to do nothing

Saturday, June 20, 2009

Today has been a long day because of the warm weather. Too warm if you ask me. Dad and I went to Lake Bracken for a picnic for the cardiac rehab. Everyone loved the homemade mac and cheese in the crockpot (I used whole wheat penne in it and a third of that left) and ugly duckling cake (one piece of that left). So I must of been a good cook because I got A LOT of compliments on all the stuff that I made.

amazed by my measurements that I did tonight

Friday, June 19, 2009

I measured myself and put where we put them when we weigh in on SparkPeople. I lost a total of 9". 4" from my waist (from a 51" waist to a 47" waist), 3" from my hips (from 55" to 52"), and 2" from my neck (from 21" to 19"). I'm so proud of myself. Very proud. I can't believe how much of a difference it is between what I was when I started SparkPeople to where I am today. I have a lot of support from friends and family and a lot of other people. I'm glad that I started exercises with dad because that REALLY helped me get down that many inches in the short amount of time that I've been up there. I'm hoping for more inches here soon.

Seeing results but still at plateau

Thursday, June 18, 2009

I'm starting to see the results of using the weights when I'm exercising. Some in the arms and some in the belly. My arms look smaller and more toned and my belly looks like it's starting to shrink. That's a REALLY good sign. Right? But I'm still haven't lost anymore weight since losing the 5 pounds bring me back to where I was before the weight came back on.

We were suppose to be over in Peoria today for dad's oldest brother. He was suppose to get a couple of aneurysms take off below the beltline but the surgeon got sick. He's suppose to get a call today to see when they're going to do it. I'm hoping that they do it soon. He was suppose to have gallbladder surgery 16 days ago but that didn't happen because his aorta was too thin and they were afraid of hitting that and killing him. They're going to wait until after they take care of the aneurysms first before doing the gallbladder.

    Keep up the good work. A plateau is supposed to be the time when your body adjusts itself to the current weight, and yours seems to be doing just that. With things getting smaller even though the weight is staying the same, you are making huge progress.

    Keep at it and eventually the scale will move. You're seeing results in your measurements and how you look (getting smaller) is more important than how much you weigh (getting lighter). Your clothes will fit better and you'll feel better - the scale is only one way to measure success.
You're doing great!
