My new sit-down-elliptical

Tuesday, April 03, 2012

My new exercise - a sit down and do the elliptical - also hoping to build up strength so I can put a chair in front of it and hold on to the back of the chair and "walk" with it - Pray for me to be consistent and to build up to real exercise without fibro-flares.

    I went on line to see what it was, but of course there were lots of different styles. Sounds like one should burn lots of calories using it and it doesn't take up a lot of space. I wish I had room for some equipment.

Lent and Low Carb Day 27,28 and Sunday

Sunday, March 25, 2012

Lent Looking forward to Easter and the new birth of things around me - baby calves frolicking in the pasture across the highway, crocus and daffodils blooming in friends yard, lambs on pasture n way to church this morning, facebook pic of new baby horse for another friend - I love this season!! And of course the new born baby at church ...sat tight behind me and made those precious little tiny baby sounds... I love it!!
Low Carb - well 70 seems to be my number of toleration in "normal foods" - going to have to really push to get that net carbs lower without using supplements or special drinks or something totally new in my way of living - DH is resisting the change in my foods because he doesn't want to eat "the good stuff in front of me" ... hmmm, more learning to do here!

    Boy, but it takes a lot of work to keep the carbs low. I am only doing good about 1/2 the time. I had hoped it would help the weight come off, but I am really not seeing any difference.

Lent and Low CARB Days 23-26

Friday, March 23, 2012

Lent - I continue to be blessed with readings and last night began to plan and anticipate a special celebration of Easter on the Wednesday between Palm Sunday and Easter with my senior couple's Bible study group. This is such a different Lent season - the first one in 32 years with no little people in the house is really weird!!! i miss the simple teaching fun things we always did. And haven't decorated a bit - will be gone next week so not interested in decorating much now.

Low Carbing is going well - But forcing me to plan my day's food ahead of time more that I ever have before - it is so different than just counting the calories and checking mid day and adjusting - If I blow too many CARBS on breakfast I really have to sacrifice through the rest of the day ... Protein #s are a bit high but I think I am doing OK - and keeping the net CARBS at 70 or less per this 10 day goal.

I can't imagine keeping Net Carbs under 60 for a lifestyle but day by day I am learning,


Day 22 and Sunday#4 of Lent

Monday, March 19, 2012

Lent, I am being so blessed with my daily Bible readings - not really geared specifically to Lent as I had planned but nurturing and encouraging my daily walk in the Faith. I missed our service this morning because it was my Sunday to help in the nursery [once per quarter] but that was such a blessed time of snuggling a 2 month old little guy for over an hour was wonderful!!

Low Carb efforts are getting easier . i am also getting calories lowered - possibly too low but will see how the next week balances out.

    How lucky your church is to have you help in the nursery! Congratulations on your Lent and Low Carb journaling!

For Lent I haven't specifically gone low carb, but I did give up bread, alcohol and chocolate (which are probably about 50% of my carbs or more), and it has been so instructive.

Have a lovely day and may the rest of your Lenten journey be filled with Christ's love and guidance.

Half way through Lent and my Low Carb Intro

Saturday, March 17, 2012

Day 21 of Lent and a good day for me to be reminded that Jesus takes us by the hand and lifts us up [Mark9:27] I am encouraged to walk with Him, knowing that when I stumble, He will in fact lift me up!! That is encouraging for all of life, but the dieting efforts in particular.

Low carb Day 21 and the first day to keep it under 70 - I can see this is going to take more specific planning to keep it under. But so excited to see that the fiber #s are staying higher with using beans and berries daily. Learning and enjoying it and not really hungry or "suffering" as I have in the past when dieting by calories or types. This is a go all around!!! I will succeed and "Lifestyle this yet!!!"

    I used to do low carb all the time and would lose weight but also ended up gaining it all back again as soon as I stopped eating that way. I also did not feel well doing that diet but I have heard allot of people say that they feel good on it. If it is working for you then good...I do know it is really hard and limiting. I remember drinking high protein shakes and that really helped me a lot. I am having an issue getting enough fruit and veggies.....I tend to head towards those carbs so maybe doing this for awhile would be a good thing for me to get back on track with.

    You know, they say it takes at least 21 days to form a habit, which only takes a moment to break. You've gotten to day 21!!!!
