My Goals for this Month

Wednesday, October 22, 2008

I'm trying to stick with my initial plan to work on a small goal for each month, a healthy goal. Then after 12 months, if nothing at least I added 12 healthy habits.
Well the last few months I have been working on lowing my sodium intake. It was over 3000+ at once, but now I hover around the recommended 2300 range. I am happy with this, and will try to continue it.
But this month I am going to work on getting more calcium. I think I am going to start drinking 2 cups of skim milk each day, that is only like 180 calories. Eventually I'd like to be able to increase it for 3 or 4 cups, as long as my calories allow. I think this will be possible, since I have trouble getting enough calories some days. So this might even help me add to my calories, especially in those days.
Other new goals are to do the 4 mile walk, with my new Leslie Sansone dvd. I have done 2 different 3 mile walks, and think that I am not being challenged or advancing. But I wonder if I will be able to keep up with the 4 mile...if not I will find a way to build up to that.

Curves Monthly Measurement Report

Tuesday, October 21, 2008

This is from the 18 of September until now.

Waist -1 inch

Abdomen same

Hips -.50 inch

Thighs -1 inch

Arms -.25 inch

Weight -9.75 pounds!

The body fat % thing says I gained body fat, but the Curves Trainer who weighed and measured me said that there are a list of reasons why that might be, like being close to TOM, salty foods and so on.

But the Scale showed almost a 10 pound loss! I am 248 according to their scale, I’m out of the 250s!

I also went shopping last night….in my closet! I cleaned it out and found my smaller sized shirts and some smaller sized sweatshirts for this winter. And then I sorted some of the summer clothes towards the back of the closet, along with some things that are too big. I need a bigger closet, a walk in closet is preferred! lol. But now I need to find some smaller sized pants…but I plan to go shopping Thursday so I will see if I can find any.

    Good work!

what body fat thing? hope it's not a body fat scale b/c the more overweight you are the less accurate they are. there are only a couple ways of accurately measuring body fat and i bet Curves doesn't have it. my bet is your body fat is down b/c that's what exercise does...burn fat.

this is how i get my body fat measured: GetDunked.com

Excess Bruising?

Wednesday, September 24, 2008

A few months ago I was aware that I was bruising more than normal (or maybe I had never noticed this before). This week I realized I have a big bruise on the back of my leg...it is ugly and about the size of my fist.
I have been trying to figure out why I am bruising so much, some things on the site I have found have stated something about a deficit in vitamin C...so maybe I should track that and try to boost it?
Or it might just be that I have always been prone to bruising, but now that I am trying to be more active I get bumps and bruises more often?
I also walk into doors sometimes...so I am terribly accident prone.

    I saw a discussion in one of my teams about excess bruising; several people attributed it to a lack of iron. To be safe, check with your doctor about the bruising. It may be a sign that something else is going on. Better safe than sorry.

Losing Weight again, not ex boyfriend

Friday, September 05, 2008

So I lost 8 pounds this week! I didn't believe it when it showed up on the scale at first, but it is for real. I'm a little worried about that being a large loss at once (Thursday I was 264 and Tuesday I was 256) but I think it is fine. I had just got finished with TOM, plus I started drinking more water, doing the 3 mile walk and watching my sodium levels. Also I had maintained weight the one week and gained another (I thought I might have hit a plateau at that point)...but I think I'm still on track.
I learned more about sodium in the foods I eat. Some days I do go over, but try not to worry about it. Other days I am in range and it is great. I discovered that I was eating sweet pickles, and they have loads of sodium in! So now I don't eat them anymore.
Unfortunately my ex boyfriend is not so easy to lose! We both go to the same college, and he is obsessed with being my friend even though I have tried to make it crystal clear that I am not interested in it. If I sit at a table at lunch, he will sit at a nearby table and watch me! If he walks by an area that he knows I am usually there at that time, he will gawk in! Then he tries to strike up conversations, and at first I just tried being polite but he is not polite at all! He noticed I lost weight and said something like I look good, and he was being modest about that. (What does that even mean!?)
I don't know how to send him the message nicely, he is just not getting it. Do I have to be mean? Someone told me to tell him loudly (so others can hear) "I told you again and again, to leave me alone. Leave me alone." and he will be embarrassed that he was unwanted and others know, and leave me alone. However, others worry what his reaction will be (that he will do something to me). We are in a public place so I don't worry about that much. I could notify campus police that he is bothering me and they would take care of him...but I really don't want to get someone into trouble...how do you lose an ex boyfriend?

    Good job on watching the sodium and the weight loss. As for ex, maybe tell him again nicely that you are uncomfortable speaking to him and don't want to pursue a friendship, maybe take a friend with you when you speak to him (so you have a witness) and if he continues his behavior, then report it. By all means, be careful, take care of yourself FIRST! Be safe!
