My sugar results

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

I took the Sugar Quiz and I Have "Situational Struggles with Sugar". Sounds ominous but accurate!

Description: It's easy for you to keep sugar out of your house, but you have trouble practicing moderation around sugar in situations (like social gatherings) that are out of your control. When you're watching friends or co-workers chow down on easily-accessible sweet treats, it's easier for you to justify it, too.

Sounds spot on!

    It sounds like me too. If it's there, I'll eat it, all of it!

    My reasons for cutting back:
1.) Need to get control of my weight, and need to start somewhere!
2.) Want this to jump-start my weight loss but also to make me more conscious of my choices!

Good luck to you on this "adventure"! emoticon

    List the reasons why I want to cut back:

# 1. I am diet sensitive. I can gain inches on my hips just thinking about chocolate, so its to lose weight.
#2. I never feel well after eating sugar. Fruit is okay but chocolate and sugary treats seem great at the time but the enjoyment never meets the expectation and then I get tired and cranky. It's not supporting for the emotional relationships that I cherish.

Feeling encouraged

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

The pain is worse in the mornings (which is a reverse from the initial injury) but not debilitating! Still walking with a limp and a cane this week but using the foam roller is helping.

I miss walking (and jogging). It was part of my every day and it's discouraging not to be up and about, but Pilate's last night was pain free and felt great. More straight leg lifts for me!

    Sounds like you have the right idea, focus on the things you can do and not the things you can't. You will get there.

Soft and Mushy

Tuesday, March 13, 2012

I feel incredibly sad today. The pain in my knee is severe I can hardly walk - no running, no squats; lunges when the pain subsides. Dr's orders. I've put on more weight (the heaviest I've ever been in my whole life) and my main source of daily activity (walking/running) is out of bounds so it's going to get worse. I feel soft and mushy and sad.

  I'M SORRY YOU ARE IN SUCH PAIN. I, TOO, HAVE HAD KNEE INJURIES IN THE PAST AND YOU ARE DOING THE RIGHT THING BY NOT EXERCISING. YOU WOULD ONLY INJURE YOURSELF MORE SEVERELY. I DIDN'T HEED MY DOCTOR'S ADVICE TWO YEARS AGO AND I MADE MY RECOVERY TWICE AS LONG. I KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN WHEN YOU SAY YOU ARE DEPRESSED. I, TOO, AM UP IN MY WEIGHT TODAY. JUST HANG IN THERE AND I HOPE TODAY WILL CONTAIN SOME REAL BLESSINGS AND THAT YOU WILL BE FEELING BETTER. HUGS emoticon

Practicing feeling happy

Wednesday, March 07, 2012

Not feeling 100% this week - digestive issues (may be fighting a bug) coupled with severe knee pain ... but I am doing Coach Nicole's sitting exercises and thankful that SP has such diverse resources!
