Z-The sun was shining & for the 1st time in along time I felt hope

E-185 minutes(bowflex treadclimber- walking-wii biggest loser-wii fit plus)

N-almost went over on my calories but I didnt

I haven't been online the last cpl days. Been pretty much just sleeping. The dr put me on some meds that I'm having a little trouble functioning on. But the antibiotics have helped so much. I have to make an appt to c the neurologist so that I can get surgery for my carpal tunnel (my r hand was down about 15 yrs ago). Dr is very happy for my weight loss my primary care hasn't seen me in over a yr I went from 276 to 229 according 2 his scales.

I got 2 talk 2 my hubby today he will b home from rehab on May 19th. It's funny I tell this to u my spark friends but not to anyone else.

Things I've done for myslef
Monday - I read a book while @ the Dr's = The Bride
Tuesday - stayed in bed & got the rest I needed
Wednesday - I got my nails done

I haven't charted my food yet but I met my calories or went over them today. Sunday is usually my day off from cardio but I did 77 minutes today
POSITIVE - I'm still moving

For the most part I met my February challenge so time to set up my March challenge for myself
1. to stay within my calories
2. do wii biggest loser 5x a wk
3. take time out for myself to relax every day (even if it means that something doesn't get done)

I'm m very proud of myself today. La & I went to Golden Coral Buffet & I had 1 plate of salad & shrimp; 1 plate of food & 1 pc of carrot cake. This is the least amount I've ever eaten @ a buffet ( I believe in getting my money worth). It was nice to leave there & not feel so stuffed.

    Great job at Golden Corral. It is my favorite buffet, but haven't ate there in years because like you said I like getting my moneys worth. Which equates to eating everything on the buffet.

  Great Job. It sounds like you have some great new goals. What is The Biggest Loser wii game like? We have Wii fit plus. I need to use it more. Buffets are hard and like you say you feel you want to get your money's worth. I am glad you treated yourself to the carrot cake...isn't carrot cake a vegetable anyway? LOL

DAY 27 & LENT 10

Saturday, February 27, 2010

Today I made my calories no problem but I did go over my fat
I only did 15 minutes of cardio & I did 12 minutes of strengthening

I didnt come close to doing my cardio for the day BUT for the week I did 611 mins which happens to show that I did overall for the week.

Water pill finally working I was able to put my wedding ring back on I hated having to have it off for those 2 days.

POSITIVE - I haven't failed until I stopped trying.

DAY 25 & LENT 8

Thursday, February 25, 2010

Made my calories today but only did 85 minutes of cardio but I did 12 minutes of strengthening.
This is really a depressing winter. It started snowing @ 4 am but didnt start laying until about 9 pm. But our school system around here is so screwed up that they canceled school & so also no school tomorrow. I really can't wait for this all to melt away . . . I WANT TO RIDE MY BIKE TO CURVES.
Thank you all again for all the birthday wishes goodies & emails. I belong to some awesome teams.
I turned 42 yesterday. Growing up I only had 1 birthday party when I was 12 with a Wonder Woman cake & my party got ruined by my stepfather showing up @ my dad's house & dragged his kids out of the party. Then every year since then it seemed like something always was going on to make it a not so good day. So I dont celebrate @ all anymore.
Last yr I had the flu & the kids I taught peace skills to showed up @ my house with a cake that they made for me in their cooking class (last yr the school was only 9th grade wit 8 students).
This year I actually planned to go out to eat with friends and a get together BUT like every year it all fell apart then the babys school was closed fro in-service; the food bank didnt deliver our food when they were suppose to the other day but called yesterday morning to say they would be @ the church in 5 mins & then I couldn't get a hold of most of the ppl who help to move all the boxes so it was 4 of us & I pulled my back. Then I spent most of the day sitting by myself in a room then the baby got up from her nap n I had to go to Walmart to get dad's meds take a cab there they only have half of them ready so then I take 2 buses home. To spend the rest of hte evening feelign sorry for myself. I guess what they this b-day so hard for me is that my hubby is in a program (let me call it wat it is a rehab) & @ this point in his treatment he is not allowed to have any contact with anyone.
So now I've shared why I m so thankful 4 Sparkpeople & the wonderful support of the teams that I am on
