My Reno weekend

Sunday, December 05, 2010

We went to Reno for an annual racing meeting (My hubby is president, I am secretary) and it went really well. We got alot done, very little arguing (with 10 men on the board, ya never know!) got to visit with our Utah and Vegas friends and my sister Becky (texwife) got to come for a few days too! so that means I had a gambling buddy. I didnt win any money but we had fun. We ate pretty well and I only had a few cocktails. We never made it to any dancing which I was bummed cause that is always good for some calorie burning but everyone was pretty mellow and we went to bed before midnight each night. Everyone else left on Saturday but Frank and I had a jacuzzi suite so we decided to stay and enjoy it, just the two of us. Here are some pictures from this morning as we were getting ready to leave.





What I didnt know, is that my hubby had (with the help of my daughters) got me some items from Victoria Secret, a bottle of champagne, candles, bubble bath etc. and had a whole romantic night set up for us on Saturday which was super sweet of him and we had a good time.

I felt self concious in the underthingys but thought, you know what? He will like it so I wore that tiny bra and panties with as much confidence as I could muster and put aside that voice that was saying how much more weight I had to lose and how my fat rolled here or there and I gave it my best shot. Uh, yea. It worked out. lol.

Then today, we had breakfast and headed a few hours down the mountain to where our racing group was going to be in a parade. We intended to stop in and say hello and then get going home. Instead, we walked the entire parade route, waving and passing out candy and petting lots of doggies! It turned out to be over 4.75 miles! Just as we got back to our truck, it began to rain!! Perfect timing!








And because who doesnt like these guys?


I dont think I have ever walked so far. Ever. We walked nonstop for over 2 hours so at least I got some excercise! My knee pain has backed off but I am going to my dr. on tuesday so will give an update on that. All in all, had a good weekend. I was not perfect, but I made progress! All I can ask of myself, right? It's not like I ate a bunch of pastry wrapped BRIE or something! (booyah Maia!!!!) Team Jan!

    Hi Jan - you wrote this blog yesterday, so I guess today you are starting to feel the stiffness of yesterdays walk, limber up by doing a short walk today, it will help to naturally stretch those overused muscles and make it all feel better. Glad you had a great weekend and I want to compliment you on not obsessing on what you ate - so you must have made good choices! - Debie

Whats up with me, you ask?

Monday, November 29, 2010

Well, Thanksgiving was awesome. Although my turkey was done 2 hours before I wanted it to be (I used a roaster oven instead of regular oven) so the whole family kicked into high gear and got everything else ready in record time. It was kinda fun but we ate early so it felt kind of rushed. My sister and I went for a walk and we all played games on the Kinect. We had a really nice day.

My neices (31, 27 and 19) were going shopping at the mall at midnight with my girls (24 and 20) so I decided to go. It was crazy!! LOL. We met some great people in line waiting to go in, had a sing off, (seriously!) and shopped for a few hours, went to Kohls (stood in line for an hour) where we literally were 1 second away from coming to blows with a crazy woman when security stepped in. Apparantly, she is a problem becuase they knew her!!), shopped there and got great deals, went to breakfast and fell into bed at 7:30AM!

I tell you that to tell you this: I could not have done that a year ago. I was on my feet for hours, stayed up all night and felt great the next day. Progress!!

Had family things going on til yesterday so my food intake has not been stellar over the last few days. Yesterday, Frank and I went for a walk with the Baby (stitchy) and I noticed my knee was feeling kinda clicky. It would catch when I walked so I just slowed down a bit and did 2 miles. By the time I got home, it felt swollen inside and every time I got up for the rest of the night, it would suddenly catch and I almost fell. So I took an ibuprofen and went to bed.

This morning, it is just as bad. It worries me cause this is my replaced knee and my surgeon told me I would be prone to infections. Great.

I am going to call my dr. today and try to get in asap and see what is going on. I am going to walk carefully (I have to go to our jobsite and get permits etc today).

Basically, I am not going to do an official weigh in until Thursday. I can feel the sodium in my body and am drinking lots of water. I tracked my food all weekend (except thanksgiving) and I went over a few days and I know I went over on Thursday but that is ok. Life happens and I am on track starting yesterday. I see how easy it would be to go back to eating the old way when there is so much temptation in my house. I just dont keep things like that in the house anymore, It was pretty easy to just eat a bite of this and a bite of that and to snack graze all the day long. And by the way? Fudge has no place in my life anymore. I will do my best until Christmas when the baked goods are out in force, trying to derail me.

I am going to Reno for a few days at the end of the week and am going prepared. It is for a racing meeting that we hold annually, lots of alcohol, not enough food. We always eat breakfast and usually make it to dinner but otherwise, not so much food. I am bringing luna bars and some other healthy snacks including apples, rice cake snacks and almonds so I can keep my blood sugars steady. Will limit the alchohol to the evening intead of all day long, will drink water during the day and get outside for a brisk walk a few times a day. The meeting is in the hotel/casino so it is not uncommon to go outside for days at a time. They also have a gym so I will try to get there a day or 2. Not to mention the dancing!
Man, I hope this knee thing is an easy fix. Will let you know what happens with that.

Hope you are all well and are back on track today, too!

    Your dog is so cute. I have a golden retriever, and love her to bits. Glad that thanksgiving went well. My doctor told me that usually when my knee snaps it could be fluid. Maybe the sodium caused fluid to go to the knees. Anyway...have a great time in Reno, and update all of us when you get back.

    Your blogs are always so interesting to read, SERIOUSLY! My family and I decided to go to Walmart after midnight...sheer craziness. We opted not to buy anything versus stand in line for two hours INSIDE the store in a line that wrapped around the entire store. Your crazy lady story does not surprise me in the least after seeing alot of "crazies" on the tv "fighting it out". What is with people nowdays??? I ate like a little piggy over Thanksgiving but no regrets. Just back to tracking and making good choices.

Hope your knee is okay and nothing serious Jan. Have fun in Reno and way to go on planning ahead. My hubs and I are off to Palm Springs on the 7th of December and I need to plan ahead as well. Fortunately we can cook in the condo so that will help.

Looking forward to your next blog!

Know what you mean about not allowing fudge in your life... chocolate is a serious weakness for me. As for me, I managed to make it through the Thanksgiving feasting without gaining anything (woo-hoo!), so I'm feeling pretty good today.

Thanksgiving Poem

Wednesday, November 24, 2010

Twas the day before thanksgiving
and all through the house,
the Mama was working
for family and spouse.

The cleaning was done
and the meal had been planned
The Turkey, desert and
yes, even the Ham.

The table was laid
with some beautiful things,
in anticipation of a day
that being with family will bring.

As I look back on this year
and all that has transpired,
I have to be Thankful
for getting inspired.

I changed what I did
and I changed what I ate,
I started moving more
and putting less on my plate.

I added some friends
I never could dream
would have added so much
and what that would mean.

There is always an ear
when I need to speak
and a pat on the back
after losing weight in a week.

There have been things
that were hard to take
but I turned to my strength
and turned my back to the cake.

My husband and girls
are what spur me on
and how good that I feel
with all that weight gone.

For the next few days
whether with family or friends,
take a minute to imagine
how this journey ends

How well you have done,
how great do you feel,
how far you have come
that it's more than a meal.

It takes just a minute
to be grateful indeed
You are in it to win it
and you mean something to me.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving my friends. You are on my list of things I am grateful for and whether you have family or money or health or not, there is something that is worth being grateful for, something that makes your life better. Most of all, we have this one life. Make the best of it!

Love, Jan

Kinected!!

Saturday, November 20, 2010

Today I bought the new Kinect system that works with XBO 360. You can play games and stuff on it but you dont need any controllers. I bought a dance game and a sports game. We have been playing for 2 hours! I danced, played ping pong, bowled a complete set, and had a 3 ring boxing match and let me tell you, playing is a lot of work! This is going to be a very good thing on nights when we aren't able to take the Baby for a walk due to weather. She will be sad but we will be in good shape. You actually do the activities so it is running, throwing, swinging, dancing, boxing etc... It is gonna be a great work out, plus it is gonna be fun.

Kady and her Art played with us and it was a riot. If you or your family has 360, go get the Kinect because it is a blast!!!

The technology is amazing! It watches you and mimics your motion in real time... pretty amazing, this world we live in!!

I gotta go log my fitness minutes cause I have to go to dinner for Kelly's BF Art's 30th birthday. Uh yeah. Mexican food. After eating pizza last night!! Same plan tho... get a salad as soon as possible to stay out of the chips! Then have a single ala carte item or a salad without the delicious fried flour tortilla.... Wish me luck!

    Gotta love modern exercise rituals .... who needs reality when we have computers! :)

Agree wholeheartedly though, whatever gets your heart pumping, your feet tapping and your calorie burn going is definitely worth doing. :)

    Your workout sounds like a blast! The chips do me in too! one of my secrets is to keep the chip basket away than when the meal comes count out 10 and put them on your plate! 10 is my magic # for things that are my issues. Pot chips, pretzels, candies, etc. If you always eat 10 or less you will not add to many cals. Have fun w/your new toy!

    If you can 86 the chips, tortillas, and rice and be reasonable with the rest, then Mexican food is no sweat. It's the chips, Man, the chips that always do me in!

Signed,
Cheryl in the land of Mexican Food!

    I'm leary of letting the XBos "watch" me. I mean...what ELSE might it watch (or let other people watch without me saying it's okay)? Heck, it still creeps me out that my mate's smartphone hooked him into Facebook without him asking. :)

    I'm convinced with the mexican food, it's the chips that throw you over. Nice job!
