Back Again

Monday, July 28, 2014

Trying to get my motivation and focus back again. I've been trying a bunch of different things to deal with some back and joint issues. More cardio, less weights. A week of no exercise which made everything worse : ) Scaling back on both cardio and weights. Nothing seems to be working, and all I've done because I've been trying different programs is stall out at less than half the cardio I used to do. So I'm just going to try again, but this time, try what worked the last time - yeah I know : ) As with most things in life with me - a wealth of information on the internet just really causes me to lose focus all together.

    I'm no fitness professional but I'm told the best thing for your body and your mind is a good walk. It's easy, you'll feel better having done it as opposed to staying sedentary. Hopefully your joints are good with this uber-low impact approach. Otherwise, maybe swimming is the answer.

I know what it is like to lose the level of fitness I had to pain or injury. One time I got discouraged, quit, lost all conditioning and didn't like the way I looked six months later. The other time I already had a trainer, she gave me all sorts of alternatives that strengthened me and may have even sped up my recovery. Easily the best part of having a trainer for me was when I needed a smart and safe alternative to my routine.

    There is way too much information, it's hard to decide what to do. Staring slow is always the best option. If something is too easy, then ok - do something harder.

Very Thankful

Thursday, November 25, 2010

I have so much to be thankful for, but especially all the wonderful people I've met on Sparkpeople. I don't think there is another place where there is soooo much positive attitude and so much support. I've come so far physically, mentally and emotionally since I first signed on and every day I wake up looking forward to pushing myself just a bit farther. I feel truly blessed to have found SP & such supportive wonderful friends!

    You've been so supportive of me, and I really appreciate your friendship.
Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I just got back this evening from a great visit with my oldest daughter who lives in Minneapolis.
Must get back on my program tomorrow, because I ate way too much while I was gone!
Have a great week!

25 days with no fast food, and I finally gave in. I stayed within my calorie, salt, and fat range, but ick. It didn't taste as good as I thought, and I feel bloated. I should have just stopped while I was ahead of the game. I don't normally crave fast food. But I was craving a burger and fries all week. It's amazing how your tastebuds can be changed!

    Many of us have commented that after a period of healthy, mindful eating that when we go back to old eating habits - 1st it does not taste that good - greasy, heavy ick. 2nd - we don't feel well - bloated, hungover. Remarkable how quickly our bodies get accustomed to good food - if only our habits and cravings could catch up. When you think about it - the way you don't feel well now - that is how we used to feel all of the time - we just didn't know it!
