192.4, Food & Exercise Journal

Saturday, January 14, 2012

emoticonHave I ever told you "I" invented the iPad in the early 90s? Yeah ... just didn't know how to put it together, didn't have marketing, nor the money behind my project. LOL. I invented in my own mind a padded bathtub for when my poor body and bones ached from fibro and pre-dx celiac. I also invented colored plastic for computers. That idea took way too long. A lot of good it does me to be the idea person. LOL.

Anyway, today's tracking:

Brunch: 4 eggs scrambled w/5g coconut oil, avocado, salsa.

Snack: romaine head, cod liver oil

Dinner: tba

Exercise: 1.6 mile dog walk, gardening 2 hrs,

Water: so far 6 glasses, 1w/ACV

Supplements: yes, incl liquid probiotics on empty stomach

Sleep: went to bed at 1am, awakened to let out the dog at 7:30a, went back to bed til 10:30a. Now I'm gonna attack the day!

    LOL. My hubby invents things all the time. When he was a little kid he came up with the idea of a string trimmer. He actually does invent things in his workshop. With his unruly long hair and safety glasses he looks the part of mad scientist. LOL. His boss is an engineer and he helps him design products for their manufacturing plant.

Cod liver oil....................ugh. You are so brave.

194.4, Food Journal, Twinkies, and Venus Williams

Thursday, January 12, 2012

Yesterday's food journal (remember, I prepare food for one. I'd prepare food for Dd but I never know her schedule or if she'd eat it):

Weighed: 195.4! Up from 193. ??~! Sometimes I think eating too late does that. Will try to not eat past 7:30p so liver can do its thing.

bfast: 14g coconut oil,
Fruit smoothie: banana, blueberries, 4c salad greens, chia, flaxmeal, Living Fuel berry protein powder.

mid-afternoon (late lunch/early dinner): romaine lettuce head, ACV, artichoke hearts, avocado, ... should have written it down for accuracy because I'm forgetting something.

eve snack: :P I found some old gf cookies and had two biscotti w/c of green tea.

Bootcamp day: myriad of stations of exercise.
Fibro pain: Highest pain is usually the day after exertion and this was the case. Had muscle pain in quads, hams, biceps and armpit area (muscle name?). Went to bootcamp anyway. We didn't run as much. There were stations of random exercises. I went at my own pace. Lots of stretching. Glad I went.

Today's weight: 194.4

brunch: Fruit Smoothie: 5c greens, frozen cranberries, blueberries, banana, chia, flaxmeal, water. Salad: 2 sm. heads of romaine, foil pkt of sardines in water/no salt, avocado, artichoke hearts, AVC, 20g fresh garlic, 3oz purple onion, cup of Get Clean tea (Rep of Tea), 2 cups water. Supplements. Cod Liver Oil. Liquid probiotics on empty stomach. Speaking of, I keep getting mixed signals on this: to take on empty stomach or with food. What's your experience?

hungry about 8p: dinner: 1srvg bfast fruit smoothie, gulp of cod liver oil

Exercise: down day. dog walking 1.4 miles.

**********

Hostess Twinkies trying to not go financially bankrupt saying it's the rising cost of food production ... I think people are wising up and not purchasing their products. I used to love Wonder Bread ... it was a treat when mom'd buy it. Too bad for me. :P Bye bye to yuck. Hope they figure out something healthy to bring to market.

**********

The minute it was announced a while back that Venus Williams had Sjogren's you know what "I" thought ... gluten-free paleo ... seems she went raw vegan, which is awesome, but not the whole story. I searched articles and finally it's being written up about the gluten-angle. yhoo.it/ywyJVq note to dietician who wrote the article: you don't HAVE to be celiac to go gluten-free, as most any autoimmune disease might benefit from its anti-inflammatory results!!!!!!

**********

An ad for Today Moms on The Today Show is brought to us by Vicks (TM) "Nature Fusion ... for cold symptom relief and free of alcohol and gluten." Gluten-free ads. Gotta love that.

    I can't remember the last time I had a Twinkie. I remember when I did that it tasted kind of disgusting - like a big "dough ball wad" in my stomach. I have the same reaction to doughnuts - especially Krispy Kremes. They are kind of revolting and nauseate me. I used to like Bunny Bread but not a big bread fan any more unless it would be killer. None of it is worth having IBS over.

I see a problem appearing more and more with gluten free now in that some proponents are turning it into a hybrid junk food diet instead of eating healthy gluten free foods.

    Response to blood sugar ques: Well, I'd have wondered the same thing GG and Cindy. And normally I don't have even natural sugars for bfast thinking about the liver (the liver doesn't like to get shocked awake I've read). I've been out of glucose strips for months waiting for new year flex spending to buy new, so I haven't measure bg. I CAN tell you that I felt fine, though. I can TELL when my blood sugar goes up because of how my brain feels. Even when that happens though, I've been within bg range (I like under 120 for me). I will be testing in the near future to confirm.

Gosh, you guys, you made me put it in SP Recipes so I could see nutrition stats, etc! LOL.

Servings Per Recipe: 4

Calories: 164.0
Total Fat: 3.5 g
Cholesterol: 0.0 mg
Sodium: 38.3 mg
Total Carbs: 27.0 g
Dietary Fiber: 7.3 g

  As far as the probiotics, I follow the packages. I don't always get the same one due to finances and store locations and they all vary. I just follow directions for what I have. One other note...I have lately been taking it at bedtime, when I have found my system likes to have magnesium and aloe juice as well. If I take magnesium/aloe juice during the day I am in the bathroom the remainder of the day, or having other embarrassing issues!! Bedtime, just a nice regular morning. Maybe take it like 10-12 hours before your normal bathroom routine begins...

I too would question the smoothies like GG did. I would not feel well with that and I don't have a diagnosed problem. What do you feel like after that?

That salad has the makings of being one of my favorites...you left out bacon and I put turkey on mine too. YUM!


Yeah and I HATE when people write articles and say going GF can be dangerous if you don't need to be. HOW???!! WTF???!! There is no documented daily requirement for GLUTEN!! Seriously!!

    Do you think the fruit smoothies are affecting your blood sugar?

I get so aggravated with my own ups and downs.

Read my blog later tonight or tomorrow...you will be surprised what my friend learned after coming back from Ann Arbor (to the doctor I sent her to!!!)

Also somewhere you asked me about the boxed Organic chicken broth and autolyzed yeast? I never buy anything with yeast in it. If you have time, you can always stew up a massive chicken and simply season the broth yourself and freeze it?

But you already know this!!

You are in my thoughts, my friend!

2 More Pounds Down

Tuesday, January 10, 2012

Pound by pound I'm down another 2 (193 lbs. today).

If I don't have my food journal active on my Spark page, it means I'm not tracking (for family who asked). It's nice to not obsess about weighing my food like I have in the past because something's gotta give. For you family, I'll try to blog diet until that stops for whatever reason.

Yesterday:

Breakfast: A lg. can of sockeye, sweated salad greens (out of anything else green), w/6 eggs again cooked frittata style. 4-5 cups fresh salad greens out of the bag watching news.
Purple grapes, banana.

Lunch: 2 lbs cherries again. Maybe something else, but I forget ...

Dinner: starved by 7p and almost coasted into a few gas stations for potato chips (can you believe it - such nerve), but saw a Panera in the nick of time: Greek salad w/3 extra sides of chicken. Asked for chips (hey I was compromising on bag size) but got a gluteny baguette. Then I corrected the order and asked for an apple. *twinkle eyes* I read a book I picked up at Goodwill about 'focusing on what's important' by Stephen Covey (I like him) and I read the first few pages. It was a good thing. Phew. Chip crisis averted.

Walked the dog. Went to bed by 11p. Planned to sleep in as long as I wanted, but I gave the dog a bit of canned salmon water on his dog food, and he got diarrhea. Got up at 4a to let him out. Got up again at 8:30a for whining dog. Let him out. I wonder how long poor thing whined before I could hear him through my ear plugs. :/ Couldn't get up. No oomph at all.

Exercise: Bootcamp as stated, and walked the dog 1.7 miles total. I started hurting by bedtime. This morning I didn't want to get out of bed. I was drained.

Fibro: sore all over in specific muscle regions. I "think" I can handle tomorrow's bootcamp and will give it a go.

Today's diet:

Breakfast: ate leftovers from yesterday's bfast. Will try to not sweat salad greens again as it's much better with sturdier greens. :P Banana - they're getting ripe. Picked at SOME purple grapes. This batch has a VERY dry tannin taste which is not very palatable, but I'm choking them down. Waste not ...

Lunch: "BAS" or Big A$$ salad: head of romaine, 2 avocados, Bragg's apple cider vinegar (ACV), 10 artichoke hearts, cherry tomatoes but not many .. trying to use them but thinking about taking out nightshades again, can of wild caught sardines in water/drained. Cod Liver Oil.

Dinner: well, so far, not hungry.
Celiac Support Mtg: gf pizza testing. I wondered how I'd react (I had a few new-to-me crackers w/cheese over the holidays with no pain), so I tried parts of 3 teeny slices WITH CHEESE. I got some mild leg pain within minutes. Hideaway Pizza won because they use more sauce, btw. FYI. ;)

Going to bed cause I'm going to bootcamp tomorrow a.m. despite pains. Friends have no pain. One has ulcerative colitis I just found out, so I'm trying to get her to do www.enterolab.com stool antibody gluten, etc. testing and then paleo or SCD or GAPS ... we'll see.

Am also trying to help a friend of DH's who is wasting away with IBS-D. Negative celiac test, went "gf processed" for two years anyway, and with no results. Gotta get to the bottom of it! I put together about 10 pages of gut info, but I may have missed something. If you have any ideas, shout 'em out.

    I read your blog today.. and I can relate.. but from what I saw.. my recommendation would be... try to balance it out if you can.. I saw very little protein in those 2 days you detailed.. and even though fruit is delicious.. watch for their sugar content. The diet I've been following with the doctor since July is very balanced, and even when I'm craving pizza I'll eat it; is just a matter of balancing it out the rest of the day. If I eat something like pizza, or a burger; that night I'll eat a salad with chicken.. or something like that.

Keep up the good work ;) if you're still hurting a little from the bootcamp, try stretching a little more so those muscle loosen up. Remember not to work the same muscles 2 days in a row, always leave a day in between.

Also, changing up the type of workout has worked wonders for me... but always trying to find one that I enjoy ;)

Have Gained 19 Pounder-oonies.

Monday, January 09, 2012

emoticon
YUP 19 pounds to 200.2. I thought it best to talk about it before it got to 20 or more. I think my ticker says 182 but I'd gotten down a pound - ahh, I remember the excitement to be so close to 170-ville. Poof. Gone.

It's a drag to write that. Family wants an update and I procrastinate ... might as well get it out. To stay positive when I'm negative I tell myself that in just about 6 yrs next month I've not gone on a bender like this. So, not bad, eh? I decided to try it. I slowly stopped taking my supplements like I seem to do every winter. SAD sneaking in. I ate potato chips whenever I felt like it which was often and the big bags. In one sitting no problem - nom nom. I even ate salt water taffy (it has been years since I even had dark chocolate, let alone taffy), and a lot of it, maybe 2 lbs worth. (I'm going to try to get my cholesterol tested.) Having eaten awfully (oh, I had some mashed potatoes, and found 3 servings of gf fries on different occasions), gosh I forgot what I was going to say. I didn't walk my usual 3 miles or so because I remained home with the contractors here to help spiff up the house for sale. STRESS. I can't handle it, never could - don't have the guts for it-haha. I bargained I was tired of thinking about food and exercise all the time, and I do - do you? I decided to relax - reaaalllly relax about it. My body's not ready to chill even if my brain wants a break.

Consequences: internal butt kicking is a bore, but I feel tired, puffy and like I was Alice falling down the rabbit hole. My skin is dry and flaking, and I got zits in weird places (fatty acid imbalance, zinc and C low). I feel less attractive, less strong, less confident. And I caught a cold -- not a horrible one, but it's still in there lingering waiting to surface if i let it. ( When I flew up Yonder North mid-December cabin pressure on descent was incredible! It was loud, my head imploded, and my ears are still crackling when I swallow. I caught my first cold in over a year on that plane because my resistance was low. I hadn't slept the night before leaving getting ready and cleaning up the house. )

Anyway, I can only talk about it because I'm back on the wagon. I'm down 5 to 195 today. Yesterday I finally ate protein for breakfast, more of it for dinner (lots of sweated spinach w/a can of sockeye salmon and then 6 eggs added. I wasn't hungry all day til dinner. And I lost 3 pounds. Yesterday I ate 2 lbs o'cherries, a banana, a gf donut (oops slip), an avocado ... can't remember what else, and I lost a pound. I walked in earnest yesterday.

It's so easy to gain, so HARD to lose (ever heard that one?). I'm once again back to walking the dog longer than to let him poo. I'm going to take advantage of free gym membership trials during the new year - going to visit a few for a while, and if there's no membership I'll consider it again. ;)

Saturday I went to Tan A nd Tone America where they do robotic fitness bit.ly/wnWq1e . They're exercise machines made for polio patient rehabilitation. I figured I hadn't walked, nor worked out in such a long time that it'd be a gentle introduction back into movement, and I was right. It's isometric and you need to resist the machines. It's very good for those with certain health issues like fibro or arthritis. The young girl touring me through the exercises lost 10 lbs and 3 inches in a month (drink water she says). I'd have loved to be her size to begin with. She has juvenile arthritis (popping out her hips for effect), and I mention paleo diet of course. The woman on the next table kept following me, finally telling me she was interested in what I was saying as she's on an arthritis board. I always wonder how better I could have presented the information in a few sound bites or something. I tend to be detail oriented and lose them I think. I usually end up with "just google it!"

Today I went to bootcamp at 5a. I went to bed after 11p and couldn't sleep worrying on the hour that I'd awaken in time for my ride. Jumping, running, high-fiving - it was HARD! I'm always the slow-poke but everyone's a team player. I'm so glad I did it, and that it's done. It's tomorrow I'm waiting for: will I or will I not hurt? It was great being outside albeit in a parking lot, coming home to walk the dog in the sunrise. There was a full moon last night; maybe that's why I couldn't sleep, too. There's been NO snow so far, which is weird but delightful in many ways.

Okay, so confession and contrition's over.

The trip Yonder North was nice - no snow there either. Followup to the wine exchange party: I chose one recommended by the wine guy at the store, and it was a red from California for $19ea. Another friend recommended "Menage a Trois" but said it wasn't a good first impression. It's her fave though. We laugh at the thought of it. I leave the party and I'm to take a bottle from the basket. I hesitated knowing I wasn't going to bother drinking it, but then I thought I could regift it, so I grabbed one. I get in the car, look at the name: a bottle of $7 Sweet *itch! Never heard of it, but what was I worried about? I gave it to Menage A Trois friend, and we laughed at the story.

I went to a few open houses Yonder North. I'm going to have trouble as i have a picture in my mind of what I want. After so many moves and houses I keep thinking it's possible. Alas, I can't afford my picture as it's 30% higher cost of living than where I'm living now. Seems we can never get the income to match the dream. I know I have to change my expectations, and that's difficult, so I'm going to focus on my health. Again.
emoticon

P.S. I realize now that Menage A Trois means "House of Three" which would have been appropriate for the hostess as they are a family of three. It does not mean "threesome" as it's more often thought of. Cost would have been around $8 ea. and I would have saved some money had I bought it!

But we have to just get up and dust ourselves off and try again! We are only really defeated when we stop trying. Stress is a killer for sure. I have another cold too and I am sure it has a big part to play!

If it makes you feel any better, I had a binge over the holidays of mostly junk covered in CASEIN! The evil "Crack" that it is!! Onion dips and taco dips and Buffalo Wing dips...cheese and crackers, cheese burgers, cheese by itself. You name it I ate it!! Five Guys and Red Robin too!! Oh and there is an EVIL GF baguette that actually has the "crack" right IN it to spur me on even more! emoticon

I have been concerned for you because I haven't heard from you in awhile. Tat darned stress...it gets us every time. I surely have had my share of it.

Time to push the restart button as you set out to create a new normal for yourself. Gotta give yourself time to readjust. Be kind to you!!! Upheaval is hard. Food is a funny thing...we turn to it to comfort us, but it only winds up compounding our misery in the end.

So three cheers to you, my friend. We are all here to hold your hand and help you get steady on your feet! I know you will do it.

I have faith in your ability to do so!!

have not had time to sleep well and work out. I get the odd

Maye the full moon last night was one of the reasons I couldn't sleep
till 4 am and now I am up and it's just 7am. Ah yes, having a temperatures
of nearly 30 degrees Celsius and that horrible humidity didn't help.

    I can relate. In my 7 month long nightmare after the death of my MIL that still continues I gained.............................
. 30 pounds. Yes, it's true. I have gotten 10 back off in the past week when I finally broke down and got completely back on my exercise program and started to eat better. Just better, not best. LOL.

Mine was an assortment of not having time to make meals, not having time to exercise right, not sleeping well, stress, plus indulging myself. I have quite a few potato chips too. I had salt water taffy - love the stuff. Fries? yes. I had it all and it showed.

I am suffering from G.I issues due to it and have to get myself straightened up.

Weird weather here too and I love it but the cold is coming.

At least we are both back on tract now and not eating ourselves to death. Spring is on the way and hopefully houses will sell and we can resume our lives.
