Weigh in day

Friday, October 17, 2014

I have been doing the Biggest Loser Fall Challenge. I am on a really great team, the Grey Wolves. It has made me get moving more and question what I am eating. Today was weigh in day and alas, I am stuck! I know what part of the issue is. I had a bit of a flare up this week. That causes a lot of pain and extreme fatigue. Sometimes I know that I absolutely have to rest. I had 2 days last week of barely moving. I am going to have to adjust my diet because this weight has to come off! I do not want to be battling my body. I have to nurture and care for myself. A negative energy/attitude is not helpful. I enjoy exercising. It makes me happy that I can do more than I thought I could. My body is changing because I have lost inches and my clothes fit differently. I just need to figure out what I need to do to make some progress. I know one thing is my sleep. I do not sleep well. I will sleep 2 hours and wake up for 3 and sleep again (sometimes). Last night I had 2 hours of sleep. I know that has to be part of the problem. I am on meds that will increase weight but I cannot change that at this time. I know what should be done. I just have to do things that will help me get to my goal. First mini goal is that I want a weight loss next week!

    There was something in the water this week. I did lose another bit, but I didn't feel as motivated about it--instead of feeling energized, it felt like a bit boulder that I had to move with the tracking and exercising. It would have been easy to cave and go back to my old habits. I think it's the middle of the challenge; it's like midterm blues. Rest up and get ready for the finish line.

    Wow - you definitely do need to get more sleep! Battling a flare up sounds no fun at all. I hope you're feeling better now. I truly hope you can find a way to get the sleep your body craves - Im sure that would help with the weight loss. Either way don't let a bad week get you down. We all have them. Hang in there!

    It seems there are a handful of Grey Wolves questioning their actions or non actions of the past week. I gained 1 pound. That being said...I know why so I have to suck it up...lol. When we are doing all the right things and we aren't losing it can be frustrating. Yet, we cannot expect that we will lose weight every week! It is not a reality. We have to look at the big picture, review where we started, how far we have come and when is enough, enough. So sweet lady, a new week has started and we all have an opportunity to make it a great week, right! GO GREY WOLVES GO!!!!!

Scale Woes and Worry and Joy and Satisfaction

Thursday, September 18, 2014

I wrote a little pep talk on the Grey Wolves message board last night about not letting that darn scale define you or make you upset. The scale is just a messenger of what you are doing and how it is affecting your body. I knew that I was really writing it for me! I have had days of getting on the scale and being so happy that it was going down! I have had days that I was really disappointed and upset that it was going up or staying the same. I weighed in this morning. It went up by a pound. Well, that is disappointing for sure but, looking back at my week, I can see that I did not track my food a couple of days. I have had a lot of fibromyalgia and arthritis pain and fatigue this week and my exercise was down. When the pain goes up, I tend to snack more. I guess I think that will relieve the pain but it really does not! :) So, I know where I need to pick up the pace a little and where I need to write things down. I am not going to beat myself up but rather I will take this as a little lesson and I will do better next week! emoticon

    I'm also shrugging and throwing some shade at my scale this week. The scale never tells the whole story. Tomorrow is a chance to start again, fresh with a clean slate and a good plan, and it looks like that is what you have decided to do.

    That's a great attitude to have! Sometimes we just need to take a moment and recognize where we went wrong and how to fix it. It sounds like you have a very good plan in place to get back on track! I hope that the pain and fatigue subsides for you. Just keep on keepin' on! emoticon

Just Do It!

Friday, September 05, 2014

I worked out hard yesterday. I was sore today but it was a good kind of sore! My daughter & I are going gluten free this month. I am hoping it will help bring down my blood sugar, settle my gastro-intestinal issues and help me lose some weight. So far, I am doing well! It is hard to break the habit of eating bread. But, I can do it for a month. I need to be more consistent with exercise. I got out of the habit last month. I think I just allowed the pain to take over. I know I feel better when I exercise. I just have to do it! emoticon

    You are right.... You CAN do it ! Do not give up. You are worth the effort and eventually it is no longer effort but more habit.

Over indulging and resting today

Friday, August 15, 2014

I had an outpatient procedure today & went under anesthesia. I had 4 injections in my spine. I am a bit sore. They told me the shots will increase my Blood sugar so I better watch it. However, I was not allowed to eat after midnight so when I woke up, I was hungry. I wanted a cheat meal & indulged in a cheeseburger and fries. The fries were almost as many calories as the burger! Ack! I gotta get right back on track tomorrow! emoticon

    Ouch, sounds uncomfortable! I hope you have a quick recovery from whatever pains you. As far as the over indulgence goes......once in awhile is absolutely acceptable. The key is to balance things out over the next couple of days. I was a bit irked at myself last night. Learning to say NO THANK YOU would be ideal! Anyway.....I thought about it and the things I just said to you were the things I told myself...lol! FEEL BETTER SOON OK!
