Walking a lot without my cane.

Saturday, June 15, 2013

I have been walking so much more. I can't believe that I can go down the stairs without the cane or rail. It is a large accomplishment for me.
I have drank 5-8 oz glasses of water a day working towards getting to 8-8 oz glasses of water.
I have had my green drink 3 days this week with a protein to go with it. I started without a protein and I got too hungry. I added raw veggies with it also.

Oh, congratulations on not needing the cane so much - I have one and I would love to get to the point where I don't need it at all. You must feel so pleased to be able to do with it less! Well done!!

    Wow! You are doing GREAT!. How wonderful for you that you can now go down the stairs without your can. So happy for you. Keep working on getting your water in - I find that it makes a big difference. I try to get one 8-oz glass in before breakfast, and two more in the morning, one at lunch, two in the afternoon (helps to have one before a meal, one at dinner and another one soon after dinner. I find that when I don't drink my water I start feeling sluggish and hungry. Keep up the good work! emoticon

My plan for this new beginning.

Monday, June 10, 2013

1. I plan to drink my water first thing in the morning for starters and get 8-8oz.
2. Drink my green drink 5 times a week.
3. Watch the amount of white things I eat. Like rice, potatoes, bread
4. Walk 5 times a week for 10 minutes and adding as I go. Keep note on journal or here my progress.
5. Make it a goal to make my info to public for support in 3 months. Get past the fear of others. Reach out for help and support. That is what I'm here for.
6. Write in this blog and share for support. Learn how to post pictures. If I need money save to do that.
This is a good beginning for me. I hope to find a good support team as I gain points and info on this site.

Family for over a month, almost over.

Monday, August 06, 2012

I have 5 days to go before it is all over. My man and I home alone again. Sad but good also. I have had a hard time with all the goodies around. I have had a bite or two but in moderation. I have not got on the scale yet. I haven't measured yet either. I see the doctor when I get back from vacation.
We bringing my daughter home to Pullman WA. We leave Tuesday and I come back with my man on Friday ASAP before our daughter finds more things for us to do. That is why we are staying two nights to help her set up her room.

I have done good without much binging. I have lots of X's on the calendar for no binging. I see four days with binging. That is 48 days without binging. With having family from TX. for a month and our daughter home for 6 weeks that is doing good for me.

I have been doing more walking with my pedometer on. With both hips replaced now as of 01-31-12 for the left and 5-11-11 for the right I'm doing great. I still have problems with my left knee so I'm not to speedy and I can't go to far at one time with my back.
I would love to walk with someone from Vancouver, WA. but I'm afraid of slowing them down. I walk for 5 minutes and I have to sit down because my back is aching with all this weight and a cyst in the lower back.
The challenge that I had will my sister-in-law was here was to keep up with her at Sat, market in Vanc. WA. and in Portland, Or. Sun. That was fun but I told her I didn't want to slow her down so go ahead of me. She stayed ahead of my only part of the time. It was nice to have her stay by my side at my speed. We had a great time on a sunny day and not to hot.
That was the most I walk in one day for years. It felt great.

    Company is nice but it is also nice when they go home after an extended stay.

Great job on so many days not binging!

Letting your body tell you when it needs to rest and when you can go further is very smart of you. Take care!

25 days of no binging.

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

This has been a great challenge for me. I went to sugar free pop cycles and all is going good. I don't even need them every day or night. The salad that I make is doing the job. It has filled me up. If not I make enough to go back to it and snack on it or ready made veggies. I can just steam them in a few minutes or eat them raw. I like them a little crunchy when I steam them.

I have added fruit to my vegetable salad. It is fun to run into a sweet something like apple or grape. I also like blueberries but they are spendy to do to often. Nuts are fun and seeds too. I don't us any salad dressing now. I have been going down on the inches now. Not much but I am only going to measure every 3 months I think.

My daughter Keenya is still around from the University and all is going better. She went for a week to the beach with her Aunt and Uncle. She is having a hard time but I think it is good for her to deal with reality. Life is what it is and we have to do things we don't like. Like me I don't like staying away for the sugar but it is life if I want to feel better. I don't want a heart attack so I have to get on track with my eating plan. Healthy is my chose.

When it comes to exercise it is not a easy thing for me to do. I have a little cycle for my arms and legs that I try to us 3 times a week. It has helped my left leg that is so week after my left hip surgery. I can do much more now.

My life is getting more challenging as I go.

Sunday, June 17, 2012

I started out my day at 8:30am. an hour past when I wanted to get up. We have had workers in here everyday all week. Now on Monday they need to still come. The house repairs were to be done yesterday but still a toilet problem. I'm hoping to get a new handicap toilet like I though I was going to get. They don't think that was the problem but when they put it back together still have the same problem.
All this is stressing me out but, I refuse to go and get food to deal with the tension. So I have been busy walking and computing then shopping this evening. I walked 355 steps today and for me that is 3 time the amount on a normal day. Remember I just started walking with just my cane in the house. Now even outside for the yard only. I have to be careful not to over do it. I sure don't want to fall again.
I'v been doing really good eating 3 meals a day with little snacking. My emotional and binge eating has been so much better. I think before I put anything in my mouth.

One thing one the thinking before I eat is remembering what I look like. Then what my heart must be doing to keep up. Then I wonder if I eat that is the stroke first or the heart attack. Then the big picture comes to my mine. Then I don't eat what I was thinking about eating. I look up to my Lord and say thank you dear Lord for giving me these thought and this information to educate myself and get my health back in control.

It was another day of healthy eating.

    You know, visualizing helps in so many ways. Go for it! Just as long as you do put yourself as a priority to live healthier.
