Back in the saddle again!

Saturday, January 02, 2010

After about a year off from here, I am back to begin again. Every beginning comes from some other beginnings end!
The 12 lbs I lost last year are back. I havent worked out since having had medical issues. Happily , for the most part, the issues have subsided to a level that I can tolerate more. Medication changes and time have been helpful.
I struggle with deep depression, which has been one of my biggest barriers. I tend to use food as my drug of choice! I want to switch that up to exercise instead.
Heres to a new start, a new year, a new attitude. :O)

One major test down...

Thursday, February 12, 2009

Well I had my MRI done and that looked good. Now I just need to get to the bottom of why I am having these horrible migraines when I try to work out. Its the pits. Leaves me exhausted, nauseous for days and discouraged.
On the up side, I am able to start using the treadmill and the elliptical again as long as I keep my heart rate at a good level.
I have another Dr. appointment today. I am hoping for some blood tests to reveal something off so I can fix this issue asap.
I am trying real hard to stop feeling so negative. I think the economy does not help either.
But- I am on my way to figuring out my problem. Next stop- chiropractor and xrays of my spine.

    Good to hear that you can get back to your workouts. I have been keeping a close eye on my maximum heart rate (161) when I'm on the elliptical. I don't like to go over 155. When I see it climbing I slow down the RPM. Usually it starts in minute 39-42. By the time I hit 50 minutes, I'm back down to 140 for the final push to one hour.

I've been using the "Karvonen" (
ate.htm) method for figuring my maximum heart rate, but keep yours within what you've been advised to.

As always, I wish you the best of success in reaching your fitness and health goals!

medical issues

Saturday, February 07, 2009

so...freaken wonderful news for me today. DR. said no working out to any kind of exertion at all until I see a neurologist and have some testing done. I am so discouraged I had a binge of ben and jerrys Cherry garcia for my dinner tonight.
I have to get a grip.

busting butt with workouts

Saturday, February 07, 2009

Okay- so this week, from sun-sat , I have worked out cardio 320 minutes and did 2 hours of strength training. I kept my food logs consistantley and averaged 1420 calories per day. Considering I have 50 pounds to lose to get into the healthy range, I would think this weeks weigh in would have went so much better. I am beyond feeling ripped off over a measly 1 pound loss. My word- I felt like I should have lost 5 pounds for the amount of work I put in. I know I could have gained at least 1 lb in muscle according to what I have read online, but no more than 1 lb per week. I have no idea what I did wrong that would only have me at a 1 pound loss. Its been a real hard past 2 weeks for me. I need to find some positive things to do this week to change my mood around. Ive been on a negative trip lately. sighhhhh emoticon

    I just wanted to wish you the best of luck. I know that it can be frustrating at times (I had a similiar week a few weeks ago) -- but stick with it and just know you have people you've never even met cheering you on! Good luck and remember that whatever you are doing will pay off -- just not as quickly as we would like sometimes. :)

Not a good week...

Saturday, January 31, 2009

Well, I had a feeling this would happen to me. I have been lying around a lot this week due to sickness and then hurting myself. I weighed in today and I have not lost anything, but actually gained a pound. Im not going to freak out about it. I know that this stuff happens and I will level out once I am feeling better. In the past I would just give up at this point, but since Ive been down this road before I realize its just a small setback. I need to look at the big picture, which is the entire month. Looking at it this way, helps me to understand more how my body is working. I think due to the fact that I worked out so much prior to becoming ill, that I kind of shocked my body. I wasnt eating enough food to support all the working out I did. Now I am paying the price with how my body feels and the fact that I did not lose this week.
No looking back now, I am going to look ahead and take it one day at a time. Its okay.
