Balance

Tuesday, October 27, 2009

I have a hard time with balance. I have been losing weight and feeling great, but last week I started feeling tired. I thought it was because of a long mountain hike and gave myself a few days to rest, cutting back on my exercise. I went for a long weekend visiting my DD and her family and worked out hard with her. On the way home I developed a cold sore and felt tired the next day. I walked in the park for 15 minutes and did 15 minutes on the treadmill last night which is a light day of exercise for me. I feel tired this morning and not very energetic. Did I work out too hard in Texas or am I just tired from the trip? Should I work out hard today to get back in my routine or do another light day? Having been inactive so long I don't really know how to balance my exercise. My guess is that I should just get back into my regular routine, but I just don't know.

Any suggestions?

    If you have developed a cold sore etc, it sounds like there is some sort of bacteria or virus getting into your system. I personally would work out as much as I could but let your body speak to you too. Exercise is good during colds but if it develops into something else then you need to back off. Is your appetite changing? That could tell you something too. Make sure you are getting enough carbs and protiens for your workouts.
I don't think I gave you any advice but only more questions to ponder. emoticon You will get through this Nancy. emoticon

    I jumped back in to my routine when we returned from our California trip and while the first 15 minutes seemed hard, then it was back to normal. Everyone is different, so you may need to approach it in stages. Good luck!

Home Again and on with my Energetic Life

Monday, October 26, 2009

What a wonderful weekend. I am really happy DH and I accepted my daughter's invitation to go to Texas on the spur of the moment. Before SP I would have thought "It's too much trouble. I don't have anything ready. I need time to think about it." Now, I had all the energy I needed to jump up at 8 pm Thursday and pack (including food) and take off early Thursday morning for an amazing 4 day weekend.

That is why this program is not a diet! It is a lifestyle. I am now living an energetic, happy fun filled life. When I was on diets, I obsessed about food all the time. Now I spend time planning my food, tracking my food, eating my food and purchasing it, but no time obsessing over it. All because of Spark and the decision I made to do it!

    This is so true. It is NOT a diet. It is a new lifestyle that we all can embrace.

Singing Saturday

Sunday, October 25, 2009

Yesterday morning my DD and I went to the gym. She does a Pump class which sounded to high impact for me, so I went to a deep water aerobics class while she did her pump class. Then we both worked on the weight machines together for about 30 minutes before going home.

emoticon emoticon

At 4 we went to the Amarillo Civic Center for the Panhandle all regional choir concert which my oldest DGD was in. I was extremely surprised at how well they sang. We heard 1 1/2 hours of beautiful music by 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. She was so happy and excited. She loves to sing!

emoticon emoticon

We went to a steak house after and I had a 6 oz sirlorin, small lettuce salad with vinagraitte dressing, brocolli and a roll. The whole weekend has been great family and food!

Friday in Texas

Saturday, October 24, 2009

We had a great day. Went to a step class with my DD and had a ball. I usually only do aerobics for 30 min so the 1 hour class was a challenge. for the last 10 minutes I didn't use the step but I never stopped moving?

emoticon

After showers, DD and I went shopping together and had a lot of fun. I got a bunch of things I never have time to get when I'm at home.

emoticon

We had lunch at Subway and I had a healthful sub and even remembered to have the girl pull out the bread in the center of the sub.

emoticon

When the girls got home from school, we went to the Halloween store and got pieces for their costumes - a witches hat and black tights and a poodle skirt. What a lot of fun!

emoticon

After supper, we went to Halloween Fun Farm and went thru a regular maze, a Farmageddon scary maze and a Hay Ride to a Pumpkin Patch. We had a ball.

emoticon

It is so nice to be with a young, healthy, family.

1st Day Visiting

Friday, October 23, 2009

We had a nice drive to Texas and went into the town where DD works. She toured us thru her workplace and we met some of her co workers, came home, had steak and brocolli and spent the whole evening catching up. My DD looks healthy and happy and the DGDs are great. It's nice to see everyone.

I was actually a little low on calories yesterday but I was also low on exercise and steps so it probably was ok.

    My DD has a FaceBook community she follows, so every time she gets on FaceBook I got on SparkPeople.
