I Didn't see that coming!

Saturday, October 25, 2014

Well I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw that the scale had 2lbs. less!! emoticon emoticon emoticon Yeah! I thought for sure now it is really broke! emoticon The reason is because these last two weeks I have only been walking 10 minutes the most due to a hip injury! So who would have thought after being stuck at the same weight for weeks that now it went down!!! I did continue to track and follow everything else but who knew!

Goes to show you that our bodies are funny! So today I am off to Epcot with two friends from work and I know that involves lots of walking emoticon emoticon so I hope my legs does not start to act up because the pain is less now and I am beginning to sleep so much better and go about my day with out so much pain!

I emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon m

Doctor's Order No Exercise:(

Thursday, October 16, 2014

Well today I finally went back to the doctor for a pain in my hip that I have had for over six months. emoticon emoticon Back then he told me to take some aleve two times a day for two weeks and to go back if the pain continued. Well needless to say the pain has been getting worse progressively and I continued to ignore it. I have even been working out hoping it would just go away.

Yesterday was a horrible day for me. I am on my feet all day because I teach 2nd. graders and boy was I in pain and limping. emoticon emoticon So I called my doctor and they got me in today. He said I had a bad case of bursitis in the hip and all I did was make it worse! emoticon He injected me with cortisone and said that I should start feeling some relief by Monday! He said I should avoid exercise until the pain subsides - so I guess I have official permission not to exercise! emoticon emoticon emoticon

I am not to happy but I will do what he says - the only thing is that I will try to move for at least 10 minutes everyday! I guess I have to learn to listen to my body! emoticon

Well time to take my night pills to see if I can get some sleep without so much pain!

    Take it easy and listen to the Dr. It's only a few days and then you can be back on track. Your body just needs some pampering. Hang in there.

Week 2 5% challenge

Monday, October 06, 2014

Well I am really disappointed in my weigh in results. I went down but just half pound after all the hard work and tracking. Again I feel that my body is sabotaging me because it likes me and does not want to leave me! emoticon emoticon m emoticon

I worked out consistently and tracked and ate within my range - so what gives - I do feel that something is wrong because it seems that no matter what I do it is the same and my husband keeps losing and is not even tracking or measuring! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

In two weeks I have a doctor's appt. and I will be talking to him because I need some help!!!!!!!!

Once again I will keep tracking, measuring and exercising but I am feel down!!!

    Boy oh boy do I know just how frustrated you are! I've been walking my tail feathers off and haven't dropped much at all! PLUS I've been really good about watching my carbs and my portion sizes.

We will just keep at it and NEVER give up my friend! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You are doing the right things, men lose weight easier than women. Just keep doing what you're doing until you talk to your doctor

    Don't stop doing what you are doing...maybe having a day with a lower end of your range may give your body a jolt into losing...just a thought

    Ask your doctor to check your thyroid levels. There are many different thyroid tests so be sure to ask him to check ALL of them. If you are doing ST though you could be losing fat and gaining muscle. 1 pound of fat and 1 pound of muscle are vastly different in size. emoticon You are doing what you should be doing though. Just keep at it until you talk to your dr.

Week 1 of Challenge!

Saturday, September 27, 2014

Week one of the challenge is over! I am so invested in this challenge that I was at the gym every single day! emoticon emoticon I did at least 60 minutes or more a day and I was tracking and measuring my food. I drank my water emoticon emoticon emoticon So someone tell me what went wrong!!! emoticon m emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon I am completely baffled. My husband and I are doing the same things and he lost 6 lbs and I stayed the same!!! Not fair! WHY ME!!
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Ok that was my pity party - now onward and forward! I will continue on this challenge and keep at it until something gives!

Tomorrow is another day - or - Today is the first day of my life! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    It just might take a while for you body to adjust to what you're doing. It's not fair that men can loose so much easier and quicker than women. I hope you are eating enough though for all of that activity you're doing. All of that hard work will pay off in the end though. Just be patient with the process. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Lol... I love your pity party. I have those too. Especially when my meds are off I can't stand it when my husband just stops eating supper to loose weight . I don't have that kind of constitution. I have to eat with the meds that I take. And on and off again with the steroids is so hard. I have gained 4 pounds this time around. Now I have to get back on track and start off hard to work it off and cut back to 1200 calories or less. I know according to the standards not to go lower than 1200 calories, but I am on a medically supervised diet because of my disabilities. I just don't want them to lower the calories to 900 a day this time. After eating that way for 3 years I certainly do not want to do it again. But don't get me wrong. I am thankful for the doctors helping me loose 130 pounds. It was a slow process of loosing weight and I have managed to keep it off. But it does take work and healthy eating. I know that emoticon and so can I. With a healthy mind set and some great goals we will do this. emoticon emoticon You are on the right track!!

    Don't fret my dear. Men lose faster than woman. You never you might just pass him up next week. Keep that positive attitude going. As you said above and as Scarlet O'Hara said in Gone With The Wind, when Rhet walked away...."after all tomorrow IS another day." Have a blessed week.

Fall Challenge on the way!

Saturday, September 20, 2014

Well once again the 5% challenge has started. I am so happy and excited to get back on track. It is so easy to let life get in the way and not watch what you eat, not work out and just go about without tracking our food intake. emoticon emoticon

Well now that the challenge has started it is a motivator and it gives me a reason to get up and go. Being accountable to others and helping the team inspires me to do something for myself. emoticon emoticon emoticon mm emoticon

My summer was great and although I did stay active I was not as detailed as I should have been. Then vacation time is over and back to work means long hours and the excuse of no time to work out. Well enough of that!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

So today I got up early and went to the gym, I have tracked all my food and have been drinking my water. I am committed to the challenge and to myself. So today is the first day in my journey towards a better me!! Let's Rock!

    I like your attitude, but yes there is a but in here just because there was no challenge on going at the time was no excuse not to track your daily foods. On KEEP WALKING WITH JESUS , I have a topic under the "General Team Discussion Forum" called "WHAT IS YOUR GOALS OR FOCUS FOR THE DAY". Please utilize this tool to help you stay on track. I really want to help keep you on board with tracking your meals with out pushing you into to many challenges as I know that a lot of us are on so many other teams. We can also list our goals and struggles, under another topic and see where we are struggling the most. Ask for help, even in a blog or email. I will be happy to be your cheer leader or seek out the help from a spark coach for you. But, whatever you do, do not slack up on tracking your food. Once we get out of this habit it becomes to easily to slip back into old habits of eating in between meals, going back to fast food restaurants and before you know it your skipping your work outs. Then we wake up and say where did all this weight come from. And we have no one to blame but ourselves. Now get going on that challenge, I am rooting for you!! emoticon emoticon YOU Are emoticon and I am here for You!!
Love always your sister in Christ
