GREAT DAY

Thursday, August 19, 2010

Didn't let yesterday tip me in anyway and made a concious choice to enjoy my meal out with friends last night...and I did....it is the nicest meal out in a long time and I have had lots of meals out of late...this was superb.....

Actually went to work today and didn't really get time to catch up with all those who thought they needed my time.....lol....will do that maybe next week.....
Have decided that until I feel much better their world is not going to completely fall apart with out me.....it will still keep going one step at a time.....

am going to have a wine and a nice evening with a young man we supervise.....

Catch you tomorrow....

Be blessed and be a blessing......

Weigh in Day

Tuesday, August 17, 2010

Well.....weighin this morning was not quite as I expected.....up 400 grms.....
However....having shared that I have been doing really great wiht allmy goals for the last week so am not actually putting toomuch importance on this today....have noticed that occassionally I increase the same amount when i have weighed and am putting it down to retaining fluid.....probably caused by salt in the food I had at the retreat at the weekend.....
Because my tracker has been the best it could be with reaching All the goals am just going to continue and see what next week brings.....all good.....just part of the journey....

Have also been resting the last 2 days and I am feeling a little better than I was on Monday so am taking whats happening as a positive.....

Blessings...

    Well done on your keeping up with your goals. Salt is the big killer when it comes to retaining water so just make sure you drink heaps of water and it'll go pretty quick. Eat protein with each meal (80grams fish, steak, 1/2 tub cottage cheese)and GOOD carbs and you should be fine with your weight loss. Also try and have a protein BEFORE exercise like a boiled egg and then CARBS after exercise and this will help refuel you after workouts and stop the sugar cravings. Its ok to have treat foods but keep this to one day a week and use this as your reward at the end of the week. Believe it or not I have a bottle of Lindauer with hubbie on a Saturday as my treat. Its all about balance so dont beat yourself up if you have slip ups just keep going. Just remember LIFE IS A JOURNEY NOT A DESTINATION!. Kia Kaha

ANOTHER WEEK

Sunday, August 15, 2010

Well...this is going to be an interesting week I think.....

Have just had a time on the phone with my health practitioner and, although I knew myself that I was struggling with my energy levels, didn't like it allbeing quite so black and white.....

I have to rest more or I ma going to end up back where I started from....not allowed to continue training for the half marathon and not allowed to do it which is gutting......and have to ask people to help when it comes to running hubby to the appointments for blood etc..... I guess thats what happens when one is recovering form adrenal fatigue and busy comes in again ...a rather hard place to be however receovery does need to continue other wise I am forever going to be going around this mountain.....

Hopefully I can start putting things in place that is going to give me more rest to help....

Trust you are all doing well....
Blessings....

  


RETREAT OVER

Sunday, August 15, 2010

Well....am back home again after a truly awesome weekend.....
There was 22 woman there yesterday with 16 of us staying over night.....
We had our Pastors wife come and speak to us yesterday morning which was brilliant and then after luch we had a time of sharing then afternoon tea followed by wine & cheese followed by an amazing roast dinner.....
After dinner we all played "who wants to be a millionare" for a while then some left and the rest of us chilled or went to bed.....
After breakfast this morning we had communion then prayed for everyone thta was there followed by lunch then home.....

Althouhg I was very late to bed I have to admit that I do feel rested and a little recharged and I will do my best to keep my diary at a managable level for the next few weeks so i don't get stressed and loose my energy........

I truly could have stayed another few days...that would have been awesome......

Nevermind it was totally worth going and I amlooking forward to next years retreat already.....lol

We will have a BBQ get together with our husbands going as well in November so that is something to look forward to.......

The greatest thing about the weekend was the fact that i stayed within my goals both days....Saturday I had already tracked and that was accom;plished however what i had tracked for breakfast and lunch today wasn't available so i was wrapped when i got home and redid my tracker to discover that i was still within everything with the choices I had made..... emoticon

    Congratulations on staying within your goals. I doubt I could have been that disciplined.

I'm glad that the retreat went well.
