Now I KNOW why I've been so cold this winter . . .

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

1. I spent a month on a cold mountain.
2. I've been swimming most every day this winter. The ONLY time I EVER did that was when I had to take swimming class in January in high school, outdoor pool, NOT heated, a LOOOOONG time ago.
3. My thyroid quit doing the things it was supposed to do like regulate BMR, normal body temp, keep skin and hair from drying out, keep my energy up, keep me clear headed, and probably a gazillion other things that it dabbled in around my body.

Now don't get me wrong. I'm really glad we've discovered why I was spending a couple of hours bundled up with mittens, gloves, ski cap, and a pile of blankets drinking tea. Or why I'd feel the need to tell the water exercise instructor I felt like I was moving through cement.

If it weren't for Spark People, I'd still be sitting in my recliner never knowing I was fatigued or that there was another explanation for freezing or my dry skin, or my brain fog, or my hair falling out besides just getting old, or after effects of chemotherapy.

And the meds just might fix everything.

Day 1 of thyroid meds: I invited Mom to lunch and fixed it myself. Then I asked her if she wanted to go for a walk with me. She's 87 and moves like she's 47. She's always 10 steps ahead of me wherever we go anywhere together. Today I told her that in about 2 months, she wouldn't be able to keep up with me.

There was a time when I believe I was hyperactive. My grandfather bet me once that I couldn't sit still for 5 minutes. Boy, I wanted that quarter!! but I couldn't do it.

I wonder what this new me is going to be able to do this time next year??

Maybe another reason you have been cold this winter is you have had less fat to insulate you.

    Yes, the thyroid is very important for many of our normal functions. I just finished discussing this with my son since he is supposed to take thyroid and he was thinking he would quit since it is $10 per month. I think I persuaded him to continue taking the medication.

Things to Do When You Find Yourself on a Plateau

Tuesday, March 26, 2013

Be a tourist. Do touristy things.

1. Check the details of your itinerary. For this journey, be sure your goals, your fitness activity levels and tracking information, food tracking, water consumption, sleep, stress management, are right on time. They are like stamps on your passport for the next train on the next leg of your journey. All of those stamps need to be collected and in order before Customs will let you continue traveling.


2. Take time to get used to your surroundings. Anytime you go on vacation, jet lag takes over until you get used to the newness of the place. So observe the new landscape that is YOU. Take some measurements. Go window shopping and catch sight of that new person in the reflection in the windows and mirrors. The last two weeks, I have been catching myself in the window or mirror, I look again, and actually smile at myself and say, "Hi!" or "Hey, how ya doin?" or "Wow!! Lookin good!"

3. Go shopping for yourself--not to buy anything--but to learn what you like now and what you don't, to learn what fits and what doesn't, to learn what styles look good on you and what styles don't. For me, as I packed up boxes of clothes for the women's shelter, and started shopping for a couple of shirts to wear with pants that still fit me, I learned that the boxy shirts and crew neck t-shirts should now be replaced by fitted shirts and v-neck t-shirts with sleeves that fit. AND I learned that I could find those things that actually fit. In fact I found several things that fit in a range of sizes. I learned I needed to buy for the immediate journey ahead, not for the winter season 9 months away. Who could predict the landscape then?? Certainly not me. That is uncharted territory!!


4. Collect Souvenirs of your visit.
Hand the camera over to another traveler on your journey to get snapshots for your scrapbook page "A Day in My Life on the Plateau" Then create the scrapbook page, or even a Travel Poster with the next plateau off in the distance. You might be close enough to goal so that you even see the Maintenance Station in the hazy distance. But it might also be just another plateau on the journey.


5. Start a travel journal if you haven't yet. Record in pictures and words your nostalgic Visits to the old and familiar places you USED to visit. Then go to a few that you now enjoy. Then visit some new ones, places you felt you'd never go, that you perhaps are a little afraid to venture there.

What are your nostalgic places? For me on this journey, I have two: my recliner and my winter robe. I haven't been sitting in that recliner as much. And during this current cold snap, I was very cold after 90 minute workout in the pool. I put my winter robe on and it wrapped around me twice.

The place I thought I'd never go, let alone enjoy is the gym--the YMCA. Yet as I walk out after Aqua Zumba, I pass the regular Zumba class and think, "I can remember a time when I'd never dream of setting foot in there, because I'm so uncoordinated." And now, while I worry about my ankles and feet being able to do the hour workout, I'm not afraid of trying it.
Perhaps that's what I'll work toward so that when I make it to my next plateau, I'm able to actually do a complete hour of Zumba class.


And while it might seem ludicrous, my food tracker is a nostalgic place. I actually went back to last August and read through the types of things I was eating. And then I compared that to the daily plans of the last week. Wow!! They have REALLY changed. And that made me look at my Groupings and favorite recipes. I spent some time weeding out the things I would probably never again eat or prepare in that way again. Yes, some choices now are for health, but I have developed a new idea of delicious also. So I need to create a scrapbook page with a key then and now picture, measurements, blog, menu plan for the day, fitness tracked for the day . . .

6. Put together A Plateau Cookbook

So while I was on this last plateau, I decided I'd create Bravelute's Plateau Cookbook on SP Recipes, where I start recording my recipes and saving recipes from other Sparkers that fit the current new me. And I will also include favorite groupings from stores and restaurants where I go to sample the work of creative chefs on this vacation. A vacation where I experience new foods, where I'm not afraid of being around those old triggers, where I can find my healthy choices. A vacation where I search out places with like-minded chefs who care about my health. While I'm relaxing on this plateau, I can take some time to consult some Healthy Food travel Guides and plan some new food adventures. I found some delicious, healthy offerings at Trader Joes. Next week, I'm going to check out Whole Foods.

You are welcome to steal recipes from my Plateau Cookbook. It is a work in progress, but available at
recipes.sparkpeople.com/cookbooks.as
p?cookbook=742730


7. Collect memories of NEW in your journal. Especially newness of reactions and relationships. Take time to reflect on the subtle and up in your face differences in your close relationships and the way people respond to you now. Is it them? Is it you? doesn't matter. What does matter is that you stay happy in your close relationships. Have you noticed changes? Are they for the better? Great. Are they for the worse? Do they need some attention here? You have the time while you're on this plateau. Make good use of it so that when the next train comes along, you are ready to hop on board.

8. Take some time to imagine this IS your goal and that you are in training for maintenance, when you get there. Because maintenance really is a plateau, a relatively flat place where you really don't want to fall down, and you certainly can't see anywhere to go that is "UP", at least scale-wise.

9. Enjoy the visit to the Plateau Resort. But be ready at the station when the train pulls out, because there are new landscapes still waiting for you to create.

    I too am stuck on a plateau, maybe there should be a challenge, BREAKING THROUGH THE PLATEAU BARRIER. There seem to be so many of us. I honestly didn't realize so many people on this site also hit plateau's. It is very frustrating to me because I have a damaged heart and need to weigh daily.
It's disheartening to see the same number on the scale and I can't seem to get below that number, no matter what I do!
Anyway, it really lifted my spirits to read your blog and the comments by everyone that followed your story. You truly are an inspiration to me and helped me feel better tonight about being STUCK ON A PLATEAU!

    This give me a whole new way of looking at this. I love the way you compare a plateau, something that is usually dreaded, to being a part of the journey. Next time I reach a plateau instead of getting discouraged and fighting harder to break it, I will take some time to accept it and continue doing what I'm doing. Acceptance sounds like the key.

Thanks for your words of wisdom.

A cold front will not stop me

Monday, March 25, 2013

I know many of you are still struggling with cold and snow and ice. So when I voice my complaints of 84 degrees yesterday when I went to the pool, and 44 degrees with strong wind this morning, you probably are thinking, "What is she complaining about??" Or those of you who know I was born in Florida might wonder what I did for fitness when it was so cold . . .

Well, I went for a walk in the morning.

Then at 3:30, instead of another walk, I went to the pool for an hour followed by a warm up in the sauna. It was lovely. It had warmed up to 63 but the wind must have been 25 mph. AND the pool was 84 degrees. Supposed to be colder tomorrow but by Friday we should be back to 84 air temp and 84 water temp.

I figure another week of cooler weather, and then it will be summer here. And everyone left in Florida will start complaining about how hot is is. I just tell them to come join me in the pool!!

I see my primary doctor tomorrow for my 6 month check-up and blood work report. Wonder what the scale there will say. I ALWAYS weigh more there than at home!!

NELLIEC 3/26/2013 1:51AM

    When I saw my doctor recently, I commented to the nurse that their scale said more than mine. She said that everyone says that. Of course, when I weigh I do it after "going" and before dressing. At the doctor's I have had several hours of having meals and am fully dressed, so that is probably the difference.

To Ichycoo Park that's Where I've Been

Sunday, March 24, 2013

www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ql-VhmEFIC4


Over bridge so high
To rest my eyes on blue green hues
Under clear blue skies
To Trader Joes that's where I've been

What did you do there? - I had to buy
What did you feel there? - Well I cried

But why the tears there? - I'll tell you why - yyyyy


It's all too beautiful!

(and luckily too crowded. If I could have REALLY shopped, I would have spent way more than $143.)

www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4bc9UwZsYs
chorus:
I bought organic bananas and freeze dried grapes
Some coconut cream and frozen sliced leaks
A Super Spinach Salad and Thai Shrimp Lime Skewers
But I never did find those elusive oat groats.

I found blueberry Goat Cheese Log, and mini shredded wheat
The shelled edamame will surely be a treat
Sweet potato tots and raw pine nuts,
But best of all was Tarte Aux Champignons.

I bought haricot verts, and plump golden raisins
A rice blend with vegge, and kaleidoscope chard
chicken gorgonzola and almond meal
The body butter has a heavenly feel.

TJ's Greek yogurt is delicious, so is the mushroom tart and super spinach salad. But the best was having so many choices for what I consider to be healthy, and apparently delicious. It was next to impossible for the other customers packed into the store like sardines to look with me running around like a crazy woman. My mom just stayed down at the end of an aisle with the cart and tried to act like she didn't know me. And my sister just kept taking me to new things she thought I missed. I filled 4 shopping bags and my huge cooler with wonderment.

And now the adventure begins, working out menus that pull in all of my new ingredients into healthy, delicious meals.

I understand they are negotiating for a store site in Tampa which will make it about a 50 mile trip to the store instead of 117. North Tampa would be beneficial to everyone concerned, especially me. I think in the same area as the Whole Foods Store would be perfect!!
