DAY 4 (8-26-10)

Friday, August 27, 2010

Still using the stationary bike & I'm getting closer to the calories I'm suppose to b eating.
I've decided that printing out my workout plan is the best thing for me, so that's the plan to start on Monday.
I've also decided that every wk that I meet my workout goals I plan a treat 4 myself. Little ones w/ the big treats still being when I met certain weight loss milestones for me.
I have the stationary bike in the kitchen along w/ mt laptop so that I have them near by while i watch the grands in the yard.
My plans are to walk 3 days a wk along w/ walking La to school every day, she starts the 2nd.
It's been chilly here lately so no pool but it suppose to b back to the 90's on Monday, cant wait to go swimming.

late but DAY 3

Thursday, August 26, 2010

Yesterday was going sooooo great.
I did 10 mins on the stationary bike (double from the day b4).
I walked 1.94 miles in 35.35 mins ( I turn of& in it didnt last but I tracked.

Then I go on facebook to catch up with some friends, & the thats when I found out the my sons grandmother had passed on. The thing is my son is a product of rape BUT I dealt w/ that a long time ago & his father did help support him & we are somewhat friends now, by the Grace of God. I only tell u this for the twist My sons grandmother is my sisters aunt. So as I have more contact w/ the family then they do I got to b the 1 to call & tell them both about the family lost. My sisters other aunt lives 2 houses up from me & I do refer to most of the family as family. So after they got back from the hosp I went to visit my aunt & got to spend some time w/ grandmom ( who has cancer & is now burying her 2nd child, 3 grandchildren & there was a great grandson last yr).
This is an little rough on me not only do I miss my step pops even more now, but my mom will b gone 5 yrs on Sept 15.
Really weird part is that I've felt my steppops around me all wk now I know y, he was waiting 4 his sister.

Why is it every time that I start to climb out of this black-hole something pushes me back in.

I will find strength thru Christ & continue to fight this demon called depression.

Maga, Please accept my sympathy during this difficult time for you and your family. Losing a grandparent figure is so difficult in every family. I will keep you in my prayers tonight and will check in on you tomorrow.

Well today is day 2 of my new goals. I'm getting ready to go do the wii but I did track my food today.
I tried to do the edge (stationary bike) & could only handle 5 mins not good.
But its getting to chilly to use the pool so I have to go back to regular exercising.
My plan is to go walking tomorrow, lets c how far I can get.

I m working on making a few different homemade soups & then freezing some. So far I've made cream of broccoli/potato soup; next is bean soup.

Z - my kitchen looks like a kitchen again
E - still working on
N - welllll @ least I tracked it

    I love bean soup I get the 15 bean mix and use ham as flavoring instead of that packet od seasoning which is mostly salt.. I add lots of veggies to it as well!

We're here cheering you on. Start back gradually and you'll be back in the swing of it in no time. It's hard for me to imagine too cold for the pool (it's still too hot in North Carolina). I love home made soup...pea, lentil, 15 bean soup..we had meatball soup the other night that was really good (it also has Spinach and Cannellini beans).

    5 minutes today means you started the journey. Gradual is better way to go.

Remember that KC & Sunshine song, "keep it coming it now..." emoticon

    Baby steps. You did 5min on the bike today, try for 6 tomorrow. If you walk a block tomorrow, try for a block and a half the next day. Just add on to one day day a little bit more than you did the day before emoticon

Well my weight has started creeping up again MY FAULT. So I decided to start over on stage 1. I'm not sure I'm really cut out for this with all my mental issues BUT @ LEAST I'M TRYING which the Dr thinks is a good sign.
I haven't tracked food in so long that its scary had bad I've been eating, it was just easier to just eat what ever they were giving me.
But I m back to being focused, even got the wii going again.

My goal for this week is to track food everyday (even when bad) & to blog every day this week that the laptop is working emoticon

Z - gave out food today thru the church food pantry
E - 60 mins
N - well @ least I'm tracking again

God willing till tomorrow my friends

    Yes, you do want to try this again. Don't think of it as difficult...think of it as just the way you do are a person who eats well and's a great gift that you give yourself called being healthy.

    emoticon You are worth the effort! I started tracking food again last week after it being months of not writing on paper, and even longer of not inputting it in the tracker. Yikes! Baby steps, one day a time. We Will Do This!!!!
