Thursday day 7 of renewal! a week done

Thursday, September 30, 2010

LOL a week seems longer that I have been doing well than that. I have gone from 193-191 not overly impressed cos of the big numbers I did in August. Although I am pleased really cos 1-2 lbs is the good amount and I am doing it right. I know I am, so please don't let me get stuck on scale numbers when there isnt a lot of body changes yet. I have been so diligent on portion control and today is the first day I have been hungry - I had oatmeal this am and it never seems to satisfy me. Interesting cos it is supposed to. oh well have a good protein lunch. We have running around to do today so will eat before we leave.
My neighbour's apt with the phcyc was cancelled so she says so don't hae to go with her.
I am washing every mat that is in dads apt. I want them all cleaned before he gets back and if we weren't going waway I would steam his carpets but no time.
Well better go get some lunch ready as really hungry and dont want to start picking.
cya later

Well it is later, we were over to Thomas'house this eve, I got my hair cut and really like it. and dh got to watch Thomas crawl around stand up to things and talk lots. He hasn't been over when he was crawlin lot and was amazed. so we wound him up good then she was getting him ready for bed. lol
now have to get a veggie tray made up, store didnt have any so bought the veggies, which was fine - cheaper and I have saved a tray they come in. also want to fill in some cantaloupe to take in the car, along with banana. Dh laughed only 3 hrs I said yea and I will get hungry so better this than stopping at Tims for tea and doughnut. anyway thats my plan. If i can get home and weigh on Monday and be a maintain I will be very pleased.
Okay off to get that done then pack and get to bed.
cya. hopefully will have use of either our laptop or their puter. if not seeeyou all on monday eve!!! oh takin my travel journal with me. I am planned now to stick with it!

Tuesday a planned great day and new motivator for me

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

Okay this may be long but have some things to say and talk to my reg. spark friends about.

First off my neice Kim is still in hospital but her heart hasn't done that again so they are hoping it will, or she goes home with heart monitor for while. She is probably facing surgery either way just depends how fast on where this problem is located in her heart.

2nd Ei called me yesterday afternoon, and sooooo sorry sorry , but you are now changed to reg. ei and will get $ in your bank in 2 days for sure. WHEW a huge whew. and also asked some questions on retraining and a few other things I needed to know. I haven't been on EI since way way back when you did it all by hand, and took your sheet in. So now will call and see about the re training, apparently you usually have to try to find work for 3 months, and know that my sick time looking doesnt count as wasnt supposed to even look.

I called the IT training I was told about by job bank. They are not geared to anyone getting ei in last 3 -5 years but she said if she has empty spaces she will take others. so hoping for an empty space. will find out when she fills her course requirements. so guess I need to call the number about re training. But have to wait to get my first money and then also my first forms done.

My sil ( dh sister) and bil were over last night. She is my new inspiration. She has always been my fav. sil of the 5 of them. She like many of us gained wt with each child. She was obese not sure what she weighed but looked at least 240-250 and is about 5'4 r 5. Few years ago at least 5 her hubby quit his job, bought part of the biz from his boss all on a loan and went out on his own but had the clients. Still stressful and her bp went up. Dr suggested walking so she started walking, and kept at it, eventually joining a womans gym. She has now become very fit, trim and healthy. She has scoliosis, thyroid issues and low iron. So has her own medical issues that can make her lose wt slower make her tired ect. she has persevered and has been for at least 3 years now at around 120-125. looks great and has some serious muscles. she goes to the gym daily and they asked her if she would work the desk for 2 hrs week. not much but whynot. well they just realized she doenst have cpr etc. so they cant give her more hurs but if she wants to get her cpr, and some general fitness training they will give her more hrs. She said okay, she has to pay for this but after that they will help her upgrade and will help her do more to be fitness instructor!!!! she is so pleased and excited and I am too, she will not be doing arobics but the one that helps on the machines and weights. good for her.
so she is telling me this last night, and I am so glad for her, and happy that things are going great. I said so cool, you knwo darlene i think of this often. I want to do something that can help and benefit women that are not sure of themselves and unsure where to turn and what to do. I more want to incoprorate the entire being I guess a wellness coach or something. so she said well do it. I am not sure what I have to start at or where to start. there are not a lot of that around, fitness centers yea so may go ask where do I start ect. I know that unless they have courses that ei will pay for it can't be my main goal but hey would need secretarial to do biz end. So Darlene is my motivator. Also once we get our basement set up, I may ask her to come over and show me some weights that she does. She did say once when I said I was doing whatever she said great that is a good wt. I was there and just work it up. so since dh drags his feet, I may ask her. That is a while yet but thats okay at least thinking about it.

My knees are both achy but it is dull, rainy and foggy very foggy, so I took an arthrotec and my reg vitamins. The back of my right is sore enough that when I get up it buckles so will be going slower today just to take care. but will try to do the bike or just some floor stuff while biggest loser is on.

Dad is leaving today to visit his twin brother in Ontario today, they are the only ones left of 9 kids. Glad he is still able at 85 to do this on his own, he did agree to a w/c at the airport as his legs are not great. So we have his car while he is gone, tomorrow I will go give his apt a great airing out and cleaning while he is gone. perhaps we will rent a carpet cleaner between us, him and lisa and do all our carpets. his need them badly. Then we leave on friday for PEI for dh mothers 75 bday. my sil mentioned above is driving with us, as her hubby will be coming later. i hope that my neice is okay and able to atttend the party too.

Well yea I was long winded today, lol but really feel good and optimistic even with my achy knees today. I am down to 191 even lowest in long while which is nice. Today, take dad to airport, do 2 loads of laundry, make healthy supper and maybe get my hair cut. have to call dil to see if they are busy adn if son is working other job this eve cos then he and dh and baby can hang out while she cuts my hair. so hair cut and see Thomas. bonus.

I hope that you are all having a good day and can really see that we can do this. I am trying to make sure that I hang onto this positive motivation and keep moving and eating well, must get my water back on track.

hugs cya later

    That's great that you have a SIL as inspiration. Sounds like she has done it the right way by building up slowly and consistently. I really think that is the key to success.

Monday day 4 going to be good day

Monday, September 27, 2010

I am being optimistic because it is the only way to be. First off we got a phone call last eve.
My neice age30 was admitted to the hospital yesterday with fainting, dizziness, and blackouts where she felt blind. The diagnosis is wollf parkinson smilth syndrome. It is a heart condition where it beats too much or too irregular I am not sure read about it but wasn't really comprehending the site I was on. Anyway they have told her that they are not sure which area is affected and she could just die, or it can be treated. hmmm. Scarey stuff for anyone but more so for a 30 year old, whos father passed suddenly of a heart attack 6months ago. Also her dads side has many heart attack people and apparently 4 cousins died of this many years ago. So prayers please if yu are the praying kind KIm will appreciate itall. I am so glad she made it to dd wedding as we hadn't seen her in ages.

2nd and important to me, but not as much as Kim's health is I called ei. They have no clue why they are a week late, and started with did you see an agent etc. I said yes told them al the dates, boils down to they are a week late and have till close of biz wed to recitify. Call back Thurs if noone has called you. Olay and I am wondering what power I have on Thurs to fix this but okay. I hipe it gets fixed I need to know.

So today, woke at 8 am!!! dh fell asleep downstairs around 2 came to bed at 3:40!!!! I woke and he said I am not tired, within 3 mins he was snoring and I was wide awake so at 5 after dozing and all I went in the other bedroom and slept well. Got up and took dog around track and now I have to decide what I am going to do as a walk, Really want to go to the beach or trail and it is awesome out so even if dh won't go today will be the day. I wil be fine in broad daylight. Today is monday 500 steps day too. I will for sure be doing that.

Food has been good, I am down to 191.8 so that is new for me, as Aug showed me at 192.6. The pants and top I have on this am to exercise make me feel good so I feel thinner and that is always a bonus to continue on.
Must go get breakfast as my belly is actually growling lol
Hope you all have a super choice day and I will be baack later to update.

Back and glad to say I went to the salt marsh trail and did a 4.5 km ( about 2 3/4 mi) in one hour. Not bad it is gravel except towards end it is stone a tad harder to walk on. My operated knee did okay till about little better than 3/4 of way back and my "good" knee well the bck of it has been tight all day and stayed tight but I was determined I was walking that trail today.
Now will do my steps if need be will do 250 and break then 250. Also must get my dusting done and tidy batrhoom and wash kitchen floor ( maybe).

It is 10 pm and have to say that I was only able to do 300 steps as the back of my knee was sore. I find it is still sore now and have iced it ect. but just went odwn to let the dog in and coming up it made a strange feeling and sound. this is th eone not operated on ad it isnt the front at all. so did a great walk, 300 steps and a lot of stretching. so still pleased. Had our company and I made pb cookies that dh can eat with no wheat and cornmeal muffins with flour and others with rice flour. I had my cup of tea and those cookies didnt intice me at all. PB cookies are not my fav and i knew I only had 96 calories left and I wanted my yogurt. So again ya for me! now off to bed. cya

    I believe you are referring to Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome. It's good they figured out what is going on with her.

Sorry to hear about your knee. I hope that it doesn't cause a lot of problems for you.

    My thoughts and prayers are going out to you and your family, especially your niece. Sounds like you have a strong family who will unite as a support system for her. That is a blessing as there are many who don't have that.

I can relate to the sleeping thing. My DH wakes me up all the time (he works nights) then starts snoring.... it is so hard to get back to sleep with the eruption of noise happening next to me. (for some reason it does not wake me if I am already asleep.)

emoticon I admire the fact that you managed to pull yourself out of bed and have plans to continue taking care of you! That is the most important thing! WTG!!!

Good luck with your program today.

Sunday, September 26, 2010

Had a great chat with a sp friend this am, and hopeflully again this eve. We discuss strategy lol . hold each other accountable even though I live in Nova Scotia Canada and she lives in Maine USA. we have become very close. I will be glad to some day meet her in person, she is a great person I just know.
Well today we didn't get out for our beach or trail walk, cos dad showed up, then ds came over. Havent seen ds in while as he is so busy working all the time. So later this aft. I took dog for walk. That is not enough execise so will go for another walk alone after supper before dark.
Have drank one of my bottles of water, so 22 oz but need more hae to play catch up wiht yesterday. I will get more down me for sure.
My walking friend is back from her vacation. So good to see her today and chat. but I ran out when she was allmost done. Tomorrow if i wake early enough, she has to be out there by 6:30 cos she is watching her grandson later. Will see if not think I will get my 4 in for sure.
So on track, calorie wise, better with water, and okay with exercise but will get more done. Need a bit of a boost in the financial mode but it too will come it has to.
Best go and finish making supper.

I WILL and I CAN do this....

Thursday, September 23, 2010

Late for me to be posting another blog but have to say, I have been on here reading a blog from a 505 lb man who is I presume down to 230 ( could be lower I am reading from the beginning 2008)

PIXIEMOM13 thanks so very much for this link. I have started at the beginning of his journey and am now at Jan 1 2009 and wow is all I can say.He has motivated me to start putting day numbers on my blog again.

So today was a good day, as I said went to the job fair, then we went to Costco and got dh meds. and we bought nothing! Anyone with a costco membership knows how rare it is to go to Costco and come out with nothing! We did go get groceries after, then got home and had supper, did dishes and had a good evening. I walked the dog and she actually ran around a bit. So we both had a good walk.
Betting and hoping that dh will join us. I asked him this eve and he you got me when I was watching a show and trying to put a program on puter.... but he didn't say no which is what he usually says. But he called him mum on a whim yesterday and she had just got home from the hospital again (few times now) cos her BP goes high, He said mum are you exercising... even a short slow walk. I thought hmm you are a great one to lecture - you sit from min you get up till you go tobed unless we have somewhere to go. he has his mum, his bro and one sister all with high BP. he was on chol. meds and bp but was for his depression they just happen to help that too. so maybe he thought about it cos said will ask you tomorrow and he didnt say no.
Anyway late and want to read for while. Have a good story on the go. Best get ready for bed.
Night all!!!

    It is good to read the daily blog of someone who has been successful, because even successful people have down days and times when their weight doesn't drop the way they want it. Sounds like a really interesting blog.
