Day 46 A personal 30 day challenge

Tuesday, March 18, 2014

I am giving myself a challenge of no refined sugar for 30 days. We have been eating A LOT of sugar in my house the past couple of weeks (girl scout cookies, anyone?). This challenge will be difficult the first few days as I detox off of sugar, but hopefully by next week I will be feeling better. Since I do most of my cooking and baking without refined sugar anyway, it's really staying away from all the outside junk that will be the challenge. Wish me luck!



Day 44- Eat for Health

Sunday, March 16, 2014

I am rereading Dr. Joel Fuhrman's Eat for Health book. I love the principals behind it and when I was eating that way before, I felt amazing. I was sleeping great and missing that 3pm crash where I feel like if I don't have a nap I might just die. I have really fallen back into old habits, lots of dairy, cheese, eggs, and I have even been eating a little meat after not eating it for about 6 months. I think I will probably continue allow animal proteins into my diet a few times a month, but they cannot be the basis of my diet. I am hoping that reintroducing this way of eating will push me further. If I continue eating the way I am, I am really going to be missing out on a healthy, nutrient filled diet.



Day 35 Healing and cycling...

Friday, March 07, 2014

Today was the best day yet for my knee. Hopefully, this means I am on the mend. I am only having slight pain, but I have a Dr. appt set up for next thursday just to be safe. I recieved my stationary bike and I love it!! I have cycled for 45 minutes the past 3 days and at 528 calories burned per session, I would say that's pretty awesome!

Have a great evening!!


Day 31 Injuries suck!

Monday, March 03, 2014

I am trying to work around this knee injury, but it is difficult. It hurts! And I am afraid I am going to injury myself more. I think the rest of this week I need to keep exercise to a minimum and stay at the low end of my calorie range. I have a stationary bike coming that I ordered, so I am looking forward to trying out that and see how my knee feels. Walking is painful, so I feel pretty limited on options.

I hope everyone has a great rest of the week! emoticon

    You are making the right decision to reduce your workout and watching your food intake. You might be down for a bit while you recover, but you will recover.

I wish you a speedy recovery.

  Stationary bike is what is best for knee injury. Just make sure that your leg is stretch to the max when you pedal. I'm not an expert but I had a knee surgery in my teen years and had to do 30 min of stationary bike before my physiotherapy sessions. emoticon Hang in there!

Day 26 Why I have vowed to not weigh myself

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

There has not been very much movement on the scale and that is making me crazy! I feel defeated, I feel like a failure, I feel hopeless, but I am not any of those things. I am strong! I am winning! I am still fighting for my health and my life! It's something to be proud of and it's a path that I need to stay on. But, every time I step on the scale and don't see the number I am expecting, I can feel myself take a small step off the path. So, I have vowed myself to not step on the scale. Instead of measuring my success by a number, I will use how I feel. I put too much faith in the scale to validate my accomplishment and my failures. When I see the number go up, it doesn't push me to work harder, it calls on that little voice in my head that says "YOU WILL NEVER DO THIS!" front and center. And I won't have that sh-- anymore!

    WAY TO GO! I know what you mean by that damn scale. I feel like it's mocking me. I have vowed to weigh myself once every two weeks and measure myself once a month. I hope this helps me feel more secure in what I'm doing. GOOD LUCK!!!!
