My weekend

Monday, July 25, 2011

Hey Peeps! I missed you! Trying to catch up with everyone but will take a few days. I have pictures posted of the weekend on my facebook. Here is a link.

Had a fabulous weekend. Drove to Medford, Oregon early thursday am (6 hours away) and met up with our friends who flew in from Utah and headed to the race track. The weather was gorgeous (about 87 degreees). Saw lots of friends and had a few drinks and a fairly early night.

The next morning we went on a Jet Boat ride through Hellgate canyon on the Rogue River which was awesome!! We were served a great lunch in a beautiful place then went back to the track for a night of racing and more drinking. Still made it into bed by 1 am.

The next day was HOT. Almost 100 and this was the final night of racing. One of the guys who has raced in our group died a few weeks ago (suicide) and his brother was there with the race car. They did a memorial lap which was very touching and emotional and on to the racing which was fun and very exciting.
MORE drinks (and yes, I was the VIP of silliness that night. I know. You are shocked!) Hit the bed about 2:30 and got up sunday, had breakfast and headed home.

Things that went right:
I walked a fair amount
I sweated a lot
I got lots of compliments, bordering on embarrasing
I drank alot of water

Things that went wrong:
I ate like crap
Too much sodium (chips, nuts,hot dogs,bacon)
Late night eating
Cookies and cake daily
Red licorice
ALCOHOL

The results:
I am up 8 pounds ( I know it will come off fast but still, kinda shocking)
I'm bloated
I'm constipated
My back hurts
I'm starving this morning


SO I guess when I look at it, was it worth it? Yes cause I was living my life BUT I could have done a LOT better (and I usually do but not this time).

It made me realize how much better I like how I live NOW (cause that was the way I used to live and I cant do it anymore).

I am happy to be home, cooking my own food, walking with my dog, having a routine and being more in control of my self and my environment.

Back to reality. But I am happy to be here.

Hope you all had a good weekend.

    Sounds like a blast! I often have a hard time deciding to go out because I know I'll slip to some degree but aren't we all doing this so we can LIVE more? The memories you made will last well after the 8 lbs is long forgotten.

    If you get back on track those LBs will come right off! I gained about 6 after a cruise and I think it was mostly sodium and stuff... no biggie, it'll be off in no time, and you'll be back on track to lose!!!

    Well as you said this was defininely a one off! After my 9000 calorie day I can definitely understand!! There are times that we go overboard and just let loose. The good things is that you are disciplined and can control this. Heat and salt are bad but a temporary bad(just stay close to a bathroom for the next 2 days!!) Alcohol actually magnifies that too. You probably can turn this by Thursday(your weigh in day right?) Lots of walking, protien, liquid and water will help! If you can use a pool for your knees and back all the better, it has the added benefit of hydration through pores too.

    Recipe for gaining weight: booze & bacon. So what else is new?
You are human. We knew that!
You are both honest & fun-loving. Yep, we knew that too.

This is why people love you. You are not a fanatic with blinders on -- you open your eyes and heart to the world. You fall on your face and pick yourself up again and move on with reflection but not self-recrimination.

That's our Mamadwarf!

    I have been shocked by how easy it is to put weight back on and it makes me insane. It doesn't seem fair that one weekend of fun means it could take a month for me to get back to normal. For some reason my weight doesn't come right back off. I was reading after a few days of unhealthy eating it can take 4 for your hunger to correct itself to normal and you will have fat and sugar cravings until then. Good times.

What do you do?

Tuesday, July 19, 2011

Sometimes this is just a frustrating deal. You dont make the progress you want, you are stuck in the same range for a really long time, you dont feel like you are getting anywhere! So what do you do?

You go to your reports and you see how far you have come since January 1.

You take your measurements and you compare where you were a month, a quarter, a year ago.

You look back and remember when you couldn't even walk a mile or run for 5 minutes or do 1 push up or sit up and you think about where you are now.

You read some blogs and you see how other people are dealing with it and then you try something new.

You take a day off and eat what you want and don't excercise and go back to the way you used to be. And that feels terrible because you aren't the same person anymore so the next day, you get up and keep trying.

You try a new recipe from Sparkrecipes or from one of your friends.

You try a new fitness video and you spend 5 minutes getting into your body and out of your head.

You write a blog or post on the message board and ask for help, ideas, support. And you get it.

When you are down, you do the following excercises:

Lift yourself up
Knock the chip off your shoulder
Push through
Run through your options
Kick your own butt
Pull yourself up
Jump into something new
Take a Leap of faith
Reach for help
Stretch your boundaries

And then you go. And keep going.

    I myself when I hit a plateau I go into maintenance mode for a season, quite literally. I don't do anything that would cause me to gain weight, nor lose. I let my body sit at that weight for 3 months and then I get back on the wagon. However this plateau of 3 months actually lost me 10lbs so I'm happy about that.

I've returned to continue my weight loss journey in hopes that the next year or two will bring me to the final goal weight of 175lbs (or less if my body will allow it)

    Yep, all of the above. I determined that I wouldn't make my food an issue while on vacation, and have just added up the damage after eating and drinking exactly what I wanted without regard to calories for an entire week. I'm about 2500 over my high limit...less than a pound's worth of excess calories, though I'm sure the salty foods will have helped me retain some water. Tomorrow I'm back in the saddle and won't look back. Works for me.

I got up (even though I didn't feel like it), I exercised (even though I wanted to skip it), I ate a good breakfast full of protein and fiber, inc vegetables (even though I would rather not), and I am facing my life and chores and obligations head-on rather than hiding out from them, wishing they would just GO AWAY for awhile.

    Greeat thoughts. Sadly, I think a lot of people who hit one of those days early in their journey, before they have results to bolster their sense that they are doing the right things and making progress, goin the other direction after that one day when they eat the wrong things. It's all about building some momentum and some resolve before encountering the hard day.

    AAAGGGHHHH - how COULD you? Okay, I know you posted a warning but I thought I was strong and I could handle it but.....I am not. I have wanted a bulldog for years - I even have her name picked out (Ruby) and I know someone who has a bulldog and is going to breed their's and wants me to have one of the puppies. True confession? One thing that holds me back is that I am still too chubby and I would resemble the bulldog too much (I am also short). So, until I hit my goal, no bulldog for me (sheesh, I am weird and shallow, aren't I?) Anyway, I am happy you get to hold that squishy bundle of extreme adorability. PS The wrinkles in the last photo are KILLING me (oh, shoot, do I have to also do Botox before I get a bulldog puppy?)

I am no longer DIABETIC!

Monday, July 11, 2011

I got my results from my Doctor and I am not DIABETIC anymore!
I can stop taking Metformin and recheck my blood in 3 months.

I cant tell you how happy I am over this. I realize how profoundly that has impacted my health and I am thrilled.

MY other things are greatly improved as well since in August 2008, my cholesterol was 242. Today it is 179.
Tryglicerides were 152 now, it is 109
LDL 162 then, now 95
My blood pressure is perfect 116/65

So basically, I am healthy as a horse and now I dont look like one either although I may occassionally act like the back side of one.

Talk about Non Scale Victory. This was a complete knock out and yea, I am burning some calories patting myself on the back.

To know that I have truly changed the course of my life is mind boggling. I set out to get healthier and I know I am truly accomplishing it. SO yea, I am bragging and celebrating and yea, I still gotta cook dinner and walk with Frank and Stitchy tonight. (I may be skipping a little bit).

    I remember when I started out in 2008 at 378. I had high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes. I'm down to 277. Done with the high BP. I still have high cholesterol but we're working on that. I know once I lose more weight I hope that I am fortunate enough to lose the diabetes as well. Keep on going girlfriend!!

    Congratulations! Those are my goals too. I was only diagnosed as diabetic 3 months ago. I considered myself very lucky for already being on SP when diagnosed. I just want to go to my doctor's appointment next week and have her say "great job, all your numbers look better!"

    YOU F.*.C.K.I.N.G R.O.C.K!

Your numbers made me tear up, lovely lady. That's partially because I am emotional and overdramatic but it is more because you are a beautiful, kind, wonderful soul who has just changed your destiny to bless the rest of us with longer to enjoy you. And, did I say

F.*.C.K Y.E.A.H !!! Way to dominate!
