Hold the stuffing.

Saturday, October 30, 2010

I joined a holiday team. It will really be helpful to have a no gain and maybe even loose goals at holiday time. No food sneaking up on me. I joined the team challenges but they were duplications of what I am already doing and iwould have to post the daily results myself.
So do not take offense but I am doing as much as I am able right now and I feel it would be best to just take an extra walk then to spend time posting when I am already counting my exercise and my water and my fruit on the food post... So I am in here for the challenges and the support but .. I would rauther take the ten minutes walking more or doing a Coach Nicole 10 minute ab work out.
We can change how we live holidays!!!

    Good idea to join holiday team to get support. It's definitely hard to avoid getting "stuffed" ourselves...then we feel like turkeys!

If only I could know...

Sunday, October 24, 2010

So if I could know the answer to my questions.
Why is the grand canyon eleven miles wide?
Why is it so much fun to get away from home, yet why do I always look forward to returning?
Why do I set goals that are unrealistic and yet blame myself for not attaining.=?
Why do I quit before I even started?
Read the Spark Book, get some answers.

So I am cooking for the seniors at my parish. I do not need to eat the dessert or the bread and the portions can be much smaller. But my rational is that I deserve it, I am being good.
Well AM I supposed to line for praise and validation at the refrigerator?????
I can change where I go for support.

Alleluia, the question is peculiar.

So the solution is to be moderate.
I got the result of my bone scan that my woman's health provider requested I have.
I have a " normal" reading with no deterioration. So I am feeling better about eating my calcium in the form of milk and other sources like sardines. Maybe all the walking is paying off in healthy bones as well as less fat. Alleluia .

Does any one else remember Does your chewing gum loose it's flavor on the bedpost over night?

here's where you find it.
I am so glad to hear about your bones. I am sure the weight loss and walking is really making a difference. Congratulations.

See you soon.

    I usually forget to take calcium and vitamin D supplements. I am thinking of putting it as a personal goal on SP to help me remember.

I exercise and try to get dairy through yogurt, cottage cheese, and sometimes milk. I used to drink a lot more milk that is why I figured I better take supplements. I eat broccoli and other vegetables with calcium. I don't like sardines.

Are there other foods rich in calcium?

I'm glad your bone scan came out well. That is not always the case. I bet exercise helps a lot.

Oh me, oh my, O you, What ever can I do?

So it is like this I found a site where you put in your height and weight and it tells you how many calories to maintain. So hubby has a base line but he still has to watch it because he really wants to loose more and be in 32 inch pants.

I am having a terrible time with the stupid calcium pills my doctor wants me to take, making it too hard to defecate. Don't be shocked, we all do it every day and I have to take a fiber supplement and a probiotic blend and prunes to keep me free flowing. This can be an agony and I spent most of last Saturday in bed or visiting the small room.
I have increased the vegetables cooked and raw. I drink at least 8 glasses of water a day.
Doctor wants me to up the amount of calcium I take. I am choosing to do it with leafy green vegetables and milk products. No more pills than I am already taking..
Shoot I get PTSD just thinking about taking the stupid Calcium pills!.....

    I read research lately that the calcium pills are not good for you. I blogged on it at the time I think. You might Google calcium pills effects so you can update your doctor. It is very new research but rather alarming.

When I read it I have almost stopped taking calcium pills completely. I have a few more in the bottle that I will finish. I take them once or twice a week. When they are gone I don't plan to buy more.

Instead I am having low fat cottage cheese with fruit on top and yogurt along with fruit smoothies in the morning. This tastes much better than the calcium pills. I also have some cheese. I especially enjoy the cottage cheese with pineapple.

    A harsh reality of life is that we all have to go! And it feels really, really, awful when we can't. I hope this gets resolved for you. Have you talked to your Dr about the effects of the Calcium? Maybe there is an alternative.

    oH MY you are so right. How many pills do we have to take to reach our goals.....(you might try a stool softener even if it is ANOTHER pill).

Hope you are still able to make your walk this morning. Good thoughts your way.
