Good Day Today

Tuesday, September 04, 2012

I've had a good day so far.

Oatmeal with cinnamon and brown sugar for breakfast (Cooked, NOT from a package)
Walked the dogs for about 20 min
Lunch of chicken salad with only one slice of bread
30 min on the recumbent bike
5 min working my arms with 3lb weights (I HATE strength training/working with weights)
Cheddar cheese for snack

I've got some chicken breasts left in the fridge from when I baked a whole package the other day, so I'm debating between that and fresh broccoli and cauliflower for dinner, or making chili (I have hamburger in the fridge that needs to be used up too).

If I go with chili, I'll probably still have broccoli and cauliflower for a snack later since I didn't really eat any other veggies today.

I'm also considering another session on the bike later. Reading a book while pedaling definitely helps.

How about you?

    It DOES sound like you've had a good day! Just remember how important that strength training is to make your body work like a machine! I try to focus on what muscles are working and visualize them getting stronger and more efficient.

Good luck!

Making a Commitment - Again

Monday, September 03, 2012

After losing over 50 lbs a couple of years ago, here I am again. I started out a couple of months ago at only 1 lb less than my highest weight ever before starting the low-carb diet, which was very successful -- until I succumbed to temptation. No more.

I have good days and bad days with food, some days doing very well, and other days stuffing my face with everything I can get my hands on. No more.

I've been trying to exercise more, riding my recumbent bike almost every day, but otherwise am a slouch sitting behind a desk or on the couch. No more.

My dogs require attention and exercise, but I find it too easy to say "We'll go for a walk later." No more.

I was pre-diabetic for several years and have had very high cholesterol all of my adult life. My last A1C was higher than ever, and I am showing more symptoms of diabetes, so I know I will be coming out of my next dr appt with a confirmed diagnosis. If I don't get these things under control my health will continue to fail, and it's definitely impacting the way I feel every day. No more.

I WILL pay attention to what I put into my mouth.
I WILL ride my recumbent bike at least several times a week.
I WILL play with my dogs more, and take more walks with them.

What about you?

    Good for you! It's never too late to start, or get back on board...
