Head cold has slowed me down.

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

I feel rotten physically with this head cold. I am really missing the workout that I do normally, but I feel that I need to rest and see if i can get better . So far, no improvement today and it is late evening. I have a feeling that I have a rough night ahead of me. I hope not. Hope everybody is avoiding getting sick with the weather change. I can't wait to get back to the old me and get started on improving my strength psychical. Best of wishes to everyone out there.

Take the time you need to let your body recover from this cold. If you think you have a bit of energy, take a walk around the neighborhood. The fresh air would do you some good. Otherwise, it's okay to take it easy. Push those fluids !

    Awww I am sorry to hear that! Soon enough, you will be able to get back into your routine, once the head cold passes through. :)

Overcoming Obstacles (a little self talk)

Sunday, September 16, 2012

I need to accept that there will be obstacles that will stand in my way of losing the weight as fast as I want to. When we stand still and the scales does not move downward i need to accept that as a natural event in life. Everybody has that happen to them and it is part of being human.

To keep on keeping on through this time I need to realize how far I have come from that first day. I need to really take a look at myself psychical and consider the mental state I was in from the start. Then acknowledge my progress and remember my goals . I need to visualize myself as the thin and healthy person that I am working to become.

Then I need to look at my plan to see where it is working for me and not working. Throw out the bad and keep the good and add new techniques that I think may help me reach that goal of being healthy and thin. If i have to,I will throw out the whole plan and create a NEW PLAN .

Acknowledge to myself that I do NOT want to go back to the PAST. I want to plan in the future, but live in the present by actually living out my plan.

I need to think of all the positive things I can do for myself to help me accomplish my goal.

Live positive! Live in the Present!! Plan a bright future!

    People keep telling us that we didn't put it on overnight and it won't come off overnight either. It seemed like it came on overnight though!

Learned all Steak is Not the Same!

Saturday, September 15, 2012

I am in shock right now! I weighted out my York Strip steak (grilled) and when I put 4oz. on the scales it was so small.So, I went for 8oz. but it in my plate and it still looked small but enough to fill me up. I had a small baked potato and 2 tbb. spoons of sour cream. It looked like a diet meal to me. When I put it into the food tracker I just about fell over. The meat calories was what I had been eating for a nice plate of food and would be full and happy on my reg. days of eating. I always had some kind of meat but didn't go over 4oz. and a big serving of veggies, it would average about 300 to 350 at most for calories. I even ate roast beef , at the most 4 oz. Well, I don't think that the Steak was worth the calories. I got lazy thought that the baked potato in the microwave would be easier. I was cooking for my husband and he has always wanted baked potato with his steak. OK, He can have his baked potato, but I will stick with the veggies. and 3oz. of steak. Also I had put my food in the tracker after I had eaten it because I thought that i had it hands down on how much and what kinds of foods that was healthy to eat. Wow! I got a surprise. I see that I better start checking the foods out when I have not tracked their calories before I but them in my plate and eat them. Learned a lesson tonight.

    OK I think I need a new scale...... I have the old style and guess I better invest in a digital.
I am bad about eyeballing amounts and never scale my foods.
OK..... today I start the scales again. TY for sharing and reminding me where to tweak a few things.

    Sometimes it is amazing what we find out when tracking. Sometimes it is just plain scary! emoticon

    I have been surprised as well with serving sizes and calorie counts. My son finally convinced me to weigh everything instead of measuring each time because the measuring can get sloppy like the 2 Tablespoons of Peanut Butter I would just kind of measure. I meansured the exaxt measurement of 2 Tablespoons and then weighed it in grams and wrote that on the top of the PB jar. It works really well. I can put the plate and piece of Ezekial bread on the scale, zero it out and then measure the grams of PB as I spread them on the bread. This is so much more exact. Then I can zero it out and add the grams of homemade blackberry jam to that, zero it out and add the vegetables. I don't end up dirtying all the measuring spoons and cups this way...just my plate. I found I was eating many extra calories a day with my so so measuring.

Thursday, September 13, 2012

I over did the exercises. i am so sore and hurt a lot in my back. i had just got the pain in my back to quite down, then i added too much exercises too quick. So, i will take out the DVD exercises and keep the walk in the plan. It is going to take a few days to recover from this mistake.Ii thought that i was old even to know better. I will not quit!! Just got to take it slower. I had to skip the Fitness exercises and going to do Water aerobics only, Maybe a walk later.

    Ewwww, so sorry. I ended up hurting my knee a few weeks ago, of all things gardening. I was just on them for hours and I had one swell up. I am finally getting that back under control. 3 steps forward 1 step backwards as the saying goes. Maybe a soak in a Chamomile epsom salt bath will soothe it down.

Self-talk keeping me going

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

OK. I talked myself into my Fitness exercise class and Water Aerobics today. I am really sore from the exercise CD and the one mile walk I talked myself into yesterday. I really over did it so I am going to cut down a little and walk the 30 mins. and see if I can increase my distance in the 30 mins. on the days I don't do the exercise classes. I really enjoy the walking with my little dog and enjoy the weather we are having here in South East GA.My eating plan is going very well.I just feel that I need to find an activity to do, as well on the days that I am not at an exercise class. So, I guess that I will put in walking only for right now. If weather does not allow walking then I 'll put in the Exercise CD. I had to have a little talk with myself and tell myself that not too much on that day even though I had been exercising for about three months or more. I started feeling better with the pain in the lower back,so I put in walking and felt even better, but when I put in the CD exercise and walking," Boy!" I really felt bad the next day. So I will listen to my body not my mind this time. Well, think I will take it easy for the rest of the day and hope I am recovered tomorrow. Got to do exercise classes all over again tomorrow.
