Sick and can't exercise

Monday, October 29, 2007

After taking care of my kids who had colds/coughs. Not it is my time to get sick. I really hate this. When you have to stop exercising. You have sort of start over again. I know if I don't take of myself properly I will have a relapse and I don't want that. I'll have to take it easy for now until I am better. I will miss it here at my sparkpeople family. Take care all.

Great Day

Wednesday, October 24, 2007

Wednesday was a great day I really workout with my new exercise routine. I get ideas from fellow sparkers--I tend to burn out easily and I am somewhat limited in the aerobics area. I manage to workout. The Lord give me strength. I stayed in cal range and I exercised for 65 min. I even managed to stay away from cookies that my hd brings in just abnout every night. I have talked to him about this. May be he is feeling a little threatened and wants me to remain large??? Not sure of his motives. I could be off--I have been before. No matter what his motives are I am not going for it. I can resist them thur Christ who is my strength and helper in time of testing. I am going to have another great day like I did yesterday.

    Congratulations, girlfriend, on TWO great days in a row! Positive attitude goes a long way, doesn't it? I love the attitude of our group!

I am trying a new version of pursed lip breathing, and I think it is helping my breathing. Rather than buying one of the devices out there to build my lungs, I am trying covering my nose and mouth loosely (and adjusting it as needed) when I breathe in, waiting a couple, or few seconds, then breathing out with the same hand over mouth & nose, more tightly applied, to accomplish the resistance breathing in and out. I can really tell a difference in how much air I'm taking in, and blowing out. Just a thought... Will see how it goes when I have my next PFT, which should be in late november. That gives me time to really test it out.

Hope you have a THIRD great day tomorrow, girlfriend!

Hugs, sheila

A Great Article for those of us who are beginning to exercise or need a change up

Wednesday, October 24, 2007





A stale fitness program is like a stale pair of old shoes -- you know how they'll feel and you once loved using them, but you just don't want to go near them anymore. We all need a little variety in our workouts. In fact, an excessively repetitive workout program is a major cause of fitness burnout.

If you're looking to mix things up a little bit, try one of these 30-minute options created by SparkPeople Coach Joe D. They should each be preceded and followed by at least a little stretching and warmup. The only equipment you'll need for most of these exercises are small dumbbells, an inflatable swiss ball or resistance bands. Many are simple "body weight" exercises with no need for equipment at all.


We recommend a low impact exercise for all warm-ups bike, elliptical machine, rowing machine, walk (gradually picking up the pace to a fast walk).

Upper and lower body exercises perform 10-15 reps Core exercises perform 10-30 reps.

I had a good breakfast and it not time for lunch. The ugly voice has come to eat telling me to eat. But I have power over that voice. I know who it is. Today he loses I will not eat. So get behind me ugly voice. You have no power over me. Greater he is he that is within me then he that is in the world. I am an overcomer in Christ!!

RENEWED STRENGTH

Saturday, October 20, 2007

I had stopped measuring my foods and for a while got laxed on my protion control.

Well for too long I sort of put on my blinders on. But they are off I will measure my foods from now on. It is very time consuming to post what I eat and keep with my portions too. But since this diabetes isn't going away no time soon. I will battle this disease until I drop.

I have been real good at exercising but I realize that I am working against myself if I don't follow with my diabetes meal plan. I know what to do it is just a matter of doing it and not letting the excuse of being an emotional eater get in way. May be I was unconscieously using that as an excuse, Not any more it is time to go forward and reach my goal weight. Here's to new beginnins (((((Whew)))). Christ said that I am victorious and I am going to not only talk about faith but put it in action today.

    I am just now home testing for my blood sugar levels after having high numbers on a blood panel. I think I'll be walking in your footsteps shortly, because I'm having high numbers after two hours test from meals. Its odd. After four hours, my numbers are in normal range, but.. two hours after eating they are between 200 and 400! I have to go into my doctors this week with a log of my blood sugar levels, and I don't know where we go from there. I thought following good eating habits, cutting out sugars, would give me a good result... (though my blood sugar panel was done months after I started here) Diabetes is in my blood though (no pun intended) My family history has a heavy incidence of diabetes. My grandmother was a twice a day insulin shot user. Anyway... thanks so much for the info... Appreciate it. Hugs, sheila
