10,000 day two

Tuesday, May 31, 2011

This is an old picture because I have not taken the time to figure out how to put pictures from my camera phone to the computer.
I have not met my goal of straightening my bulletin board
I have not been walking 10,000 steps a day which would help me feel better.
I eat pretty well in the day time but hubby is putting his weight back on and I am joining him in the snacks he brings into the TV room.
I have my computer in there now ...
I have to depend on myself today.

    I keep miss placing my pedometer! I'm going to track it down this week so I can join you and see how many steps I actually take in a day.

I'm a big snacker in front of the tv too.... For me, I always do better if I have vegies and healthier snacks prepared. Right now I have a tupperware bowl filled w/cut up cantelope & low fat string cheese & apples in the tv room fridge.

    10,000 steps is a lot of steps! I try to walk 5,000 steps and that is hard to do most days. Hope you get the snack thing under control:) emoticon

    Tell him to stop bring the snacks into the house and that you will toss them out if he brings them into the house. Then follow through and toss the stuff. He will eventually get the message.

    There are few people that we can depend on in this life.

but most of all we have to depend on ourselves to stir the motivation that gets us to the goal we want so much.

Today I got my desk cleaned up but only did a slow walk. My hip is bothering me and I will have an appointment at the chiropractor. I will do three miles though tomorrow.
I will just walk slowly. If it is just a recurrence of my sciatica, walking is better than sitting. I know the answers are many but more walking and better eating are the answers.

    If weight loss was easy, spark wouldn't exist.

    What is irritating is I had my phone but do not know how to transfer from phone to computer. I do not want to pay for the computer on my phone.

    Good for you (walking for juvenile arthritis)!!! I hate that when I forget my camera and knew I wanted some pictures!!

I wouldn't worry about the weight gain this week.

Am I lying to myself or just lying down.

Thursday, May 12, 2011

I just feel like I am lying to myself. I walk but not enough I am feeling like I am trying to vault the Grand Canyon. Eleven miles across. It is just too far. It is just too hard. It takes too long.
I am surely gong to have to stop eating Nutella and ritz and not posting it on the food tracker. Sometimes I just have to get out there and walk more than 1 or two miles.
'Ok I am finished complaining. More vegies for sure. More fruit. And a lot more walking.
But no Yoga... I cannot put so much pressure on my hands. It hurts too much for too long after a class.

    Try doing a little interval training when you walk. I have read that a little high intensity, like jogging, alternating with walking will help the pounds come off:)

    As I remember you live in Roseville. I work out at the city's gym and it is reasonable and you can find cardio exercises that don't involve walking or classes that are easier. Pilates is much more fun than yoga. My teacher tells stories and makes us laugh. I'll spark mail you if you want more information.

  Okay, ditch the Ritz crackers for sure. They have high fructose corn syrup in them! Spread the Nutella a thin layer and put it on something with some nutrients. Then, do your thing, girl friend! :)
I have lots of problems with working out, but we all can do something, right? God bless. Remember those small changes? You can do this!

So it is Monday

Monday, May 09, 2011

So it is Monday and before I shower and get dressed and get too busy I want to let you know my plans. I have been slowly upping my walking. I am a bit sore and have arthritis so I do not want to over do.. I stretch before I get up and after each walk.
I am on plateau since October... I have begged my husband not to eat in the evening after we already have had dinner. I do not know weather it would be better to just save dinner until we are sitting and watching a show called the Closer that we watch every time it is on or other cop show... I may have to give up TV in the evening because it is too easy to mindlessly eat with him... He also needs to take off weight. He is a yo yo dieter. He can fluctuate 25 pounds up and down.
I have been on Spark so I just go up and down maybe five.. But I want to get under my current weight of 175. So Just like the Grand Canyon was etched out of rock one drop at a time. I can change one walk at a time instead of one cracker and cheese....

    I agree about the one step at a time. I find that I have to want it bad to make a difference.
