I had to go to the ear, nose and throat doctor today. My throat and ear has been hurting me for a few days.
I was afraid not to go because my dad had cancer of the sinus and throat and died from it.
Well come to find out I had pulled the muscles in my throat weight lifting. Of all the things.
I am thankful that was all it was. You just never know what you may find out when you go to the doctor. I just about made myself sick worrying.
We were out so late we just grabbed some Wendy's chili and fruit. I'll have yogurt and nuts at home.
I reckon I will just ride my bike for awhile. Its like my husband said I have plenty of time to heal up and then do the weights. Its not like I'm going to drop 50 pounds over night. I just want to use the weights to keep everything tight as it will get.
Everybody keep on Sparking.

    Your husband is right the most important thing right now is to give your muscles a chance to heal. When you start up again be sure to follow proper weight lifting guide lines and try not to overdo.

Good luck in the days ahead and remember to keep on keeping on.

It is so frustrating to try and find calories that all say the same thing. I looked up Greek food today and got all kinds of calories. I know people make things with different seasoning and that makes a different. I know some use oil, some don't. I just went to a happy medium and hope for the best. I know what I ate was not fried, not sweet. So I just hope I did okay.
My calories said 1500, but my stomach says huh. I will just drink some water and maybe hot tea and just wait for tomorrow to eat something that I know what is in it. It really is frustrating to go out to eat you just never know just what you are eating.
I did have some good news. I was not going to weigh again until February but I just could not wait so I weighted this morning and so far I have lost 15 pounds since January 4. I know some of that was fluid but I know some of it was fat and I'm happy. I have five more pounds to my first goal, You know 20 pounds. I like that. First 20 will be gone soon and then on to the next 20 and so on.
I think I will go bike and see if I can burn about 100 calories. That will make me feel better about the whole calorie counting.

    That is wonderful weight loss. I know what you mean it makes it hard when you go to places you like to eat and it is hard to track what you have eaten.

  That is great 15 pounds. You should be Proud. I know how you feel about the calories. I get so frustrated trying to pick foods and then count the calories. No matter what.. 15 pounds makes it all worth while. I hope to be as successful as you. Keep up the great work

    That's really good news on the weight loss, WOW. I always found once the weight started the downward spiral it seemed to keep going. I also found the same when gaining, easy to keep putting on.

Well I'm proud of me. Yesterday I was so busy, going places, people needing attention (granddaughter, got shots) all kinds of things taking my time. About five o'clock I decided I needed to keep my streak alive so I did my 36 minutes on the bike and 20 minutes weight lifting. I was so proud after I did it. I just could not get my points.
I got kind of down this morning after I measured. There was no difference in the measuring tape. I know my blouses are fitting better and other things are looser. I'm not going to weight until February 4 so I thought maybe there would be a difference in the tape. I read some more of my Spark book again and got to feeling better. I have a goal to lose 20 pounds . When I reach that I'll go for the next 20 pounds so on and so on. I have other goals I am doing and I am on a streak of 18 days. I know this is from now on, eating healthy, exercising, drinking plenty water, Sparking, so what is the problem. So what if the scale does not move like I think it should. So what if the measuring tape does not move like I want it too. It will, in time. I get to feeling good and confident and I forget how big I am and what a journey I have before me but that is okay also. All I can do is one day at a time and I am going to do that day the best I can.
