Week 4

Sunday, July 20, 2014

I am a little off my game with all the sad news on tv. and my need to be glued to watching all the updates ....
I did my exercise this week plus did my 10/10 goal challenge .
Thought this would really get my going and I would lose what I had gained --not.

Best thing for me is to continue what I am doing .. and be patient .
This week I go to my first class for cardiac care .
They want to bring all my medications in original containers , a list of foods I eat ... (yikes)
I will also be doing a stress test and having more blood taken while there.

Maybe I will be able to get to my YMCA membership going and start my walking aerobics ... that will be good .
Next blog I will have a good loss.

oh This week it was 127.2 lbs

    Don't worry about the weight. That part seems to be fine honestly. Inches and toning maybe, but scale doesn't seem to be issue. Best on the ymca stuff. Focus on that , the rest will follow.

    Oh wow Jo, I'd love to be the weight you are! :-)

Cardiac care class would be good, I didn't get that when I had a heart attack and wish I had!

Patience is the key word for most things and especially for losing weight.
All the best, Jo!

    Yes, I agree with Lilydog11, I'd love to have your number...but each of us have our own challenges. I hope your new cardiac class will give you some helpful tips on moving that scale in the right direction.

I got down to business with my food intake, take a look at Canada's Food's online & adjust it. I reduced an average 200 calories a week with a high of 1850 a day & I can't wait for my WI tomorrow.

The news definitely puts a damper on things...get out in the sun today & let it light your way!

Week 2

Sunday, July 06, 2014

Well after an exciting week of going to the Mandarin for a gals day celebrating my birthday once again!! yes I know
Then going to Red Lobster for my son's birthday..
You guessed it I am up .. I enjoyed my mini vacation in Toronto with lots of walking -swimming and more walking but it was not enough to offset those salty high calorie meals .

My weight was 127.2 oh gosh .. so this week is a wash
Now to get moving and get into my healthy foods
By the way --no one has kicked me for not getting my frig and freezer full of healthy foods ..
I will be going Tuesday --finally will have a day off from babysitting the grandkids.

Tonight my GS said Grandma I want a healthy know the only thing left in the house are a few almonds so he ate 5 of them.. I promised him nothing but healthy foods by Tuesday.. unless he and sister are good and I can take them to the grocery store to stock up tomorrow.

Life with family!
You really have to plan .. so this I must do better! PLAN

    Procrastination, Jo. The bane of our existence. You need to set your family straight on your life needs. Then you can set you straight. (ONE day off from baby-sitting???)

Love you my friend.

    I have absolutely no reason not to be eating healthy and I don't do it so I guess I can't be kicking you.

Let's try to remember it is for us.

one week and one day

Sunday, June 29, 2014

My week did not go as planned
There is always other people or events that muck up well made plans .
That is okay though I worked around it all.

Well except I still do not have my freezer or frig well stocked as of yet.
This week!-hold me to it!

My exercise is coming along slowly. --- In that I get going and I get a twinge or a pull or out of breath . This all makes me a little anxious .. It really shouldn't -- I mean I know I am okay .
The thoughts just pop in my head like slow down you going to get your heart a pumping and then you are in trouble --so funny -- I will have to fight this fear and get on with my life ..

In spite of it all I lost 1 .4 lbs .. so happy with progress.. let it keep happening

thanks for reading -- give me a kick or a pep talk if you want to.

    Give yourself some credit buddy! You recognize the need of good nutrition, so you know what to do. Summer is great for those local fruits & veggies...About exercise...listen to your matter how optimistic the mind, the body will let you know what it can take. You know best what you have experienced...EASE yourself back into activity...walking & swimming are SUPERB activities...moderated cardio exercises are GREAT...check with your cardio clinic...or check out spark exercises. If they suggest any home exercises...for sure, do them CONSISTENTLY...I can't tell you how many people I speak to have been given physiotherapy exercises to practice at home & say they don't do them...they then say physio didn't work for me...

Also remember, any exercises you can do from the floor, you can also do from the bed....

Have a fantastic CANADA DAY, my friend & keep smiling & sparkin...

    Your anxiety is only natural Jo. Good job on the weight loss. But yes you need to stock your fridge with healthy foods.
