Today's Weigh-in

Wednesday, January 02, 2008

I wasn't going to weigh in today because I knew I gained but I did and I only gained half a pound from last week so that's not too bad since I've been eating really badly and not exercising.

But, it's time to get back on track. Foodwise, first and then exercise. I want a loss at the scale next week!

Well, I did 20 minutes this morning even though the phone rang part way through and then my iPod earbud got stuck in my ear. I was going to do half an hour but my legs were still sore from yesterday. Yesterday, DH and I went to an art gallery and then wandered around Toronto for awhile. We went to a Ferrari dealership in Yorkville! Our plan was actually to go to a Norval Morrisseau gallery in Yorkville but alas, it was closed for the holidays. There was one really nice Morrisseau at the McMichael Art Gallery. Does walking around art galleries and Toronto count as exercise?

    Walking is about as close to exercise as it gets sometimes for us RA suffers darling....so YES in my book!

Good for you working outJoanna !!!! I'm so proud of you....I need to try to do something...anything. You do inspire me more than I was....GOD why is it like pulling teeth??? It shouldn't be that hard for me.....I'm so damned goofy like this.

    Greetings from the other side of Canada! (I live 50k east of Vancouver). You did much better than I did over Christmas - I gained 4 lbs! But am back at exercising too. I think that walking around art galleries could count as exercise. For mind, and body. Seriously though, if you wear a pedometer, you would be surprised at how many steps you can add to your day by doing things like that.

BTW, would you believe that a friend of ours owns two Norval Morrisseau paintings? He bought them years ago when Morrisseau was still unknown, but he thought he had potential. Boy was he right!

Good for you for the 20 minutes exercise today. Have you signed up for sparkEarth? I have, and your recorded minutes show up on the right hand side of your start page (under login points) along with your goal. I find it very good for motiviation.

All the best for 2008.

Well, I gained 1.8 pounds from last week but all-in-all, that's not too bad considering I've eaten two Christmas dinners plus Chinese on Christmas Eve, plus lots of cookies and chocolate plus a couple of mugs of Bailey's Irish Cream.

I had a good Christmas (I've posted photos of my presents on my SparkPage) and now, I'm looking forward to a few days of rest before I have to head back to work on January 2nd.

Today's Weigh-in

It's disheartening. I gained 2.7 pounds. I ate well most of the week but once again was unable to exercise because of sore knees, etc.

How am I going to do for the next week when I'm not exercising and I have six special events to go to? One tonight, two on Friday, one on Saturday, one on Monday and one on Tuesday. Sigh...

I don't want to gain but I don't see how I can help it. I'm one of those people who wants to put in my mouth what I can see and smell. Point in fact, my friend at work brought a baggie of goodies over for my husband and she made me a small baggie because she knows that I'll just eat his if I don't get my own and all day long, it was calling my name so at lunchtime, I ate two shortbread and two chocolate macaroons and then I ate the remaining shortbread and macaroon when I got home last night.

But, the good part about this is that from yesterday morning when I weighed in to this morning when I weighed in, I lost 1.2 pounds. So, maybe eating not great isn't necessarily bad.

And, Christmas dinner at my dad's house on Saturday doesn't sound too unhealthy - we're all supposed to bring our favourite salad and something crusty and my sister (who lives there, too) is making a large capon and providing something sweet for dessert.

So, maybe I'm worried for nothing.

    Hey, it does sound like your family is trying to be more conscientious about their diet; that's some help. I'm the same way; if I smell it, or see it, or just know about it, I want some. That's always worst just before the TOM for me, which could be some consolation.
