Busy Weekend..

Monday, February 11, 2013

Thanks for the giggles, Roxit and Parachick, about my reflector-vesty thing. I know the vest has crazy shoulders, but it keeps me just warm enough without overheating. The reflector thing comes in handy when the sun isn't up yet but I am. The pic was taken at approx. 6:30 am before I went for my run.

Friday, I did as little as possible and by that I mean I napped and snuggled puppies and tried not to be too snacky.

Saturday morning I did my run, came home to grab a quick refueling bite to eat, then went to a training class on training! After that was one, we worked on the dog path with a group of community volunteers and got a ton accomplished.

Sunday was similar - Bill and I did the Fanconi Valentine's 5K with GayeMC (although she left us in the dust, speedy chick!) then went back to work on the dog path again with a new volunteer, another quick dash home for something to eat, then back to the shelter for a different training class.

The ladies who were checking in volunteers for the last class Sunday evening got a chuckle out of me showing up. One commented "You're everywhere!" and this weekend it sure felt like it at the shelter.

My eating was all over my range - low, high, then over, and yet the differentials worked out alright. We'll see what the scale shows on Wednesday.

I have to say, I'm more tired today just sitting on my butt (inbetween walking around my floor and my walk at lunch) than I was all weekend being busy. This sitting stuff sucks.

I've ~got~ to make a change and get away from this desk somehow.

    It was so great to see you and Bill. I can't believe how he was jogging at the finish. Maybe HE should register for a half. I think I'm in for the Hop Hop. I can do a 5K in the rain, right?

    If you figure out how to stop sitting at a desk (and still do your job effectively), let me know what you come up with! I do tech support stuff and live at my desk, without deliberate, planned activity, I'm a total slug--I can average less than 2,000 steps a day if I'm not careful. Being all over the board with calories isn't a problem if there's still a deficit each day; hoping for a good weigh-in for you tomorrow!

    It is so hard to find ways to move when you're at a desk all day, isn't it. I walk to work in the morning so I at least start the day with a bit of energy but then by early afternoon I'm fading again. I try to walk around the office as much as possible, but it's hard to find the entertainment in that. Nice job on your super active weekend!

  I hear you on the sitting behind the desk thing. I've been thinking the same thing recently. It is difficult being on the road though too, with having to eat on the road. Maybe a happy medium??? Wow, we both have been rocking it lately. Thanks so much for your encouragment and your little kick in the hiney about tracking. I did really good this weekend and am very pleased with the results! Keep on keeping on dear spark sistah!!!! Hugs...Robin

Run for Sherry..

Saturday, February 09, 2013

I ran 5 miles this morning, for Sherry.



It's not my best pic, but it's the bib that counts most.

Get out and move today. Walk. Run. Bike. Skate!
Print your bib here, and move for a good cause.

    I hope you had a good long run.

As an aside, your reflectors and gloves make me think of 1970's sci fi flicks with big glowing plastic orbs-- which makes me giggle and jealous at the same time. I have a weird orange constructor vest that I wear, but nothing as cool as your harness....

Thursday..

Friday, February 08, 2013

Catchy title, eh?
emoticon

Yesterday was a relatively good day, although as the day wore on (and I became more tired) the mood flattened somewhat. Nothing bad, just feeling stretched a bit thin (if only!)

Work done, I got home and changed pretty quickly, then went for my run. The first mile always sorta sucks, but then things started to feel better. Lately my legs have been feeling flat, but they picked up a bit more life and energy and I was able to just 'let go' and feel my body relax into the movement. Nice!

I finished up (still stinkin' slow, but every lb released is seconds deduced) and got home, changed up again, and Bill and I took Bub in for his shots and check-up. He's such a sweet happy boy, and everyone he meets think he's a lovebug, which he is. As long as you're not another dog LOL

That done, we got home and had a delish dinner (lemon-baked swai, baked sweet potato, and homemade coleslaw). A few nuts later for a snack, and I was more than ready for bed by 8:30.

I need to likely update my weight/nutrition/fitness info. I'm at a BMI of 35.8 right now. I'm eager to drop down below 30 - that'll put me in the Overweight range vs. Obese. I haven't been there before, but I'm determined to make it! That will be at 202 lbs. I'm closer than I was at the start of the year and that makes me very happy!

It did start raining last night as I was running. Not heavily, just a typical Portland rain. Made me think of this, as it often does.

I love this picture. This is my inspirational photo for my BLC weekend challenge.

I'm off to try and stay in my routine as much as possible while it's my day off. I've got a busy weekend ahead of me so today is suppose to be my 'off' day. Ha! We'll see how that goes.

    Funny how that first mile (or two or three some days) is so hard to push through, then you find your stride and hit the 'sweet spot' where you can just let go and enjoy it, isn't it? Good job getting out there and staying on track!

Every pound off is a second shaved off running time-- what a great analogy, and good motivator when I'm feeling like the slow fat one in the gym.

Delicate..

Thursday, February 07, 2013

That is not a word that would ever obviously used to describe ME.

I'm large. I use to be 5'10" but have apparently lost an inch or so over the years.

I'm big boned. I know, you're rolling your eyes, but it's true.
Take your thumb and forefinger on your left hand, and wrap it around your right wrist.
Do they touch?
Mine don't even come close. Yes, that might change as I release more lbs, but it is what it is.

I'm sturdy. I use to be the "pack mule" for the family, being the largest and therefore obviously the strongest individual (in their opinion, not necessarily mine).

I could easily be called a 'galoot' - a big goofy person. I use that term affectionately with some of the lumbering-type kennel kids we walk.

I have a loud laugh - in fact, when I really get going and it's a "I can't help it" kind of laugh, it has been called hyena-like LOL get me and my sister together and get us laughing deep down inside and it borderlines on frightening LOL

There are parts of me, though, that are delicate despite outward appearances.

Apparently, even though I'm burning beau-coup calories daily, I release lbs better when I eat below my suggested Spark calorie range. I know, it's a suggestion moreso than set in stone mandates.

That is a delicate balance - I need to eat less, but eat enough to fuel my body to do what I want. I need to reduce processed carbs, but eat enough raw carbs (for lack of a better term) to fuel my muscles and body and brain. And believe me I love me some raw carbs!

Ok, that's all I can think of right now, but there.. there's one delicate thing about me!

Yep, those calories consumed are creepin' back up again. That's alright, I'm not worried, but I am paying attention. I realized I was munching on cashew pieces last night because I was tired, not because I was really hungry. I allowed myself a few, and then called it good. Improvement!

Ok, those of you who said you have to clean your workspace before you can take pictures of it - you made me giggle! Thanks for that. I cannot imagine it's so bad that you can't take pictures right now, but then again, I'm all about being paperless. I require all forms be submitted electronically because I do not store paper copies of anything. Ever. Everything I do, all work, is electronic, so I'm really clutter-free. I wish the same for you!
emoticon

Thanks to those who shared their space and their motivational do-dads. I loved it! I'm looking forward to more.

    I'll never roll my eyes at big-boned as I believe myself to be a big-boned girl as well. I sometimes wish there were more positive images, role-models, acceptance for physically strong girls when I was younger. Oh well, I'm glad they are there now. I can just tough my middle finger to my thumb when wrapped around my wrist and I don't think I have anything excess there at this point.

I would have a tough time to come up with an application of "delicate" to me and I think you did great. By the way, I love your laugh and smile and I hope we can get together again to share more laughs!

Good luck finding and sticking to that delicate balance of carbs and calories and exercise to keep losing weight!

Sorry if this is a bit all over the place...my brain flow is a tad off. LOL!

    I wouldn't call myself 'delicate' either, I can be downright clutzy. (Who else misses the fact that there are more steps on the stairs she walks EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. and falls going down? Yep, that would be me this morning.) That's why it is simply hilarious that I'm taking a belly dancing class. There is a delicate balance for each of us in finding what works for us, though; it is not the same for everyone. You're doing awesome, Candy, just keep going! Oh, and seriously, my desk right now is a disaster, papers scattered about and not much to show in the 'motivational quotes' category. Need to fix that one of these days!

Motivation..

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

Our amazing friend IrishBeanerGal posted a picture on her blog the other day, displaying her desk and water pitcher, and a motivational phrase that works for her.
www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_pu
blic_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=52
38854


She inspired me! Here's a shot of one of the walls in my cube.


What you're seeing is a short wall upon which I have taped motivational sayings from the SparkPeople Desk Calendar 2011 - among other clutter.
emoticon
I also have a frisbee, which we don't use but I would love to toss it down our cube alley.
I have a stress ball which I squeeze the cr*p out of sometimes.
Yes, that's a bowl of rubber bands. Guess what I do with those??
I have a headset next to my phone that I don't use nearly enough. I should wear it more often, and get up and pace during phone calls. Of course I'm usually typing during a call, transcribing what someone is telling me (I work HelpDesk - if you have a problem with your computer, hardware or software, or your phone or other various information services-related stuff, you call me).

The motivational quotes/phrases that speak to me are, from left to right:
Stop and think. Before every action, ask yourself if this "solution" will really help you in the long run. If not, choose a different option - one that will help you become successful.

Think about the qualities of others who have achieved your goal. Is there any reason why you can't behave like that right now? Behave like a successful person and you will become one!

Find meaningful work. The nature of your job isn't as important as how you approach it. A positive attitude and a focus on the meaning behind your work make it more rewarding.

"There is no elevator to success. You have to take the stairs."
- Unknown

"Everyone is an athlete. The only difference is that some of us are in training and some are not."
- George Sheehan

The meaningful work one is tough for me sometimes, although my attitude about my job is improving so far this year. That's a good thing.

Closer to my range, though still under it. Of course, things are righting themselves and my calories will increase. I'm looking for patterns to try and understand what my body does at various times of the month, not just during TOM. I'm starting to, after what? nearly 3 years? LOL figure it out. Maybe. Or maybe not!

Here's my 'challenge' to you. Show us your workspace!
Do you have motivational pictures up? Sayings? What do you surround yourself with daily that helps keep you on the right path?

Many thanks to Irish for the inspiration!

    Thanks for the tour of your desk! Love it! And love the quotes you have posted.

My workspace - I'm currently mostly mobile and we don't have assigned desks at work. We check in to whatever desk we want that is open each day. That miminmizes personalization. I have a desk at home but we're in the middle of redoing the area so I don't have anything "up" beyond my vision collages and a few quotes. I will accept your challenge once I officially move to my "fixed up" space.

Love this idea and I can't wait to see what others share!

Hugs!

  Candy...That's a good idea....ok I'm going to have to clean my work space first. A few of my quotes around my desk I found when I was going through a really difficult time. 1. Happiness is in the heart and not in the circumstances! 2. You need to be uncomfortable to grow! Something that I do to help keep a positive attitude at work is to listen to peppy music and to drown out my coworkers inane chatter!!! Must she speak out loud every thought that comes into her head??? She's really good at her job though and makes my life easier....so I just turn the music up!!! Can you believe this....how good we are both doing! I wanna pinch myself and figure out how to get back here when I lose motivation. I'm also finding music very motivating right now....so on the country station on the way home yesterday and on the way to work today....they played that song On a Pontoon....it gets me thinking about summer and how I want to look in my shorts and bathing suit. And then I heard a really good couples dance song. Reggie bought us dancing lessons for Christmas....again....I think about how I want to feel when I'm dancing with him. And looking forward to events that are coming up and how I want to look and feel.

So happy that we are both doing well!! Hugs and love to you...Robin

    Very nice, love the motivational quotes! Like CATBEFIT, I have a little cleanup to do before I can post anything, though. For a long, long time, I had this posted on a sticky note on the bottom of my computer screen:

The choice is mine to make.

That little reminder--that I CHOOSE to eat well or poorly, be active or be a sloth, was the key trigger for me that got me seriously going on this journey. It reminded me that I am in control, I'm not a 'victim' when it comes to what I eat and do. The sticky finally wore off and the computer monitor has been replaced several times, so it is no longer posted, but it's permanently etched in my brain. Amazing what those reminders can do for us, isn't it?
