last few days

Wednesday, December 24, 2014

well I haven't been doing good on here lately because the stomach flu came to my house through my grandson. I took care of him Friday through Monday, throwing up. then midnight Monday night I came down with it. last night his brother came down with it. I have 3 more that could get it. been spraying Lysol everywhere but didn't stop it so far.
thurs. night I am suppose to travel to pa and back, to pick up my 3 grandkids there to spend with their father over their vacation from school. hope I am up to it.
also my 18 yr old was told to get out and he called his father who lives with us to come get him. so I have taken on another kid to take care of. I will have to make sure he gets to school 3 days a week for classes he failed last year and didn't get to graduate. his school is 30 minutes away. maybe I will join club and exercise while he is in school. I cant afford to drive back and forth 3 times a week, twice a day. got to make it work.
well hope things calm down after the holidays and I will be able to concentrate back on me everyday. hope everyone has a great holiday season.

  Hi Mary--- Sounds like you have very much to cope with in your life now. I hope that all can be worked out for the best, and that you do not experience too much stress. You do need to take care of yourself too! Sending warm wishes to you!

    You can do this and I am always here for support. Check into a local gym and library. Maybe some senior activities in that area that you can do while he is at school. Keep pushing forward.

    Those little guys are virus MACHINES - it churns through them pretty quick, and I'm convinced it's because they pass them immediately to US! Hope you are fully recovered for the holiday!

Life throws curves

Wednesday, December 17, 2014

Well, stress is number one for the reason I am not losing for the last month. the 3 before that couldn't tell ya why I didn't lose any weight. still at 200 and wont move. right now I am dealing with the word cancer popping up everywhere, daughter, a best friend and even found some skin cancer on me. life throws these curve balls and I feel like I cant win at this losing game.
I was doing an hours gazelle work out, walking 1111 steps to the mailbox and walking around in stores but never lost any weight. also was doing chair exercises and band exercises. all that happened was I now have a nerve pressing from my neck down to my fingers. going for MRI on tues of my spine to see what is going on there. doctor is just hoping arm will work its self out. so I had to stop all exercise except dangling arm when it starts to dumb up. swirling my knees when they begin to bother to help lube them . little 97 yr old patient at the doctors office said to everyone, that lady knows how to use up her time, she exercises, because I was dealing with arm and knee pain waiting an hour and a half in a chair.
I don't know if I should just wait till all the mess is over and start on me again when things aren't as stressful. but even when it wasn't, I didn't loose any weight. hubby keeps saying I am looking good but hes prejudice .lol
well I sure hope everyone else is working through their hard times and pushing on this healthy eating plans we are all on. I try but its getting really hard right now. good luck to all of you and I wish everyone a wonderful Christmas filled with love and laughter, and the best new year ever.

    Wow that is very hard to deal with. I'd say don't give up on yourself but you have to do what you feel is right.

also my best spark friends daughter is having surgery today. but she may not be up to it. she had bad spell last night . pray for her. her and her children can use all the prayers that we can give today.
dec. is full of doctors appointments and my daughter is having surgery on the 8th of dec.. I may have to have surgery done on my neck because something is pinching nerve but trying to hold off because my friends need me right now. when they pull through all this, then I will think about me. I will survive. lol.
ok I will go get ready for my trip and wait for news on the my friends daughter. praying for the best. be good over the holidays. we can enjoy and eat good foods too. then start over the next day. lol.


my life plan diet

Sunday, November 23, 2014

1. 3 meals a day plus snacks so I don't get hungry. no eating within 3 hrs. of bed. consider dessert (healthy made) every other day.

2. eat these: whole grain carbohydrates: fiber, nuts, ( which is healthy fats), protein, lean meat specially 2 legged kind, and fish.

3.none: sugar, simple carbs. fructose as in high fructose corn syrup, trans fat, saturated fat, and non-whole grain flour and enriched and or bleached flours.

4. hungry emergency times: apples, walnuts, soybeans, sugarless gum, water, cut up vegetables, low fat cottage oe pre made soup you made yourself.

5. recipes, replace any fruit or vegetable to make recipe to my liking. or diet meal plan, the same.

6. keep track of what I eat. spark people tracker.

7.once a day, take multi vitamin to help against non perfect food choices, take 2 grams of fish oil for omega 3 and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon daily. also read you should get 10 tablespoons of tomato sauce weekly. ( should be no problem love tomatoes.

8. enlist help from nutritionists, trainers but most important have support from a team member. ( the one I have is the best, thank you for being there for me)

9 very important: its OK to make a mistake. the important thing is to catch them, recognize them, control them, and allow yourself the opportunity to get back on the right road. ( which is waist management) get it down to 32 1/2 inches.
well this is my plan that I will give my all to follow the best I can. I will do it.


day 4 of plan

Saturday, November 15, 2014

so far I have done very well on my plan. I am feeling full and dont crave more to eat. I am hoping it will show on the scale after a week. even one pound would be nice. haven't been doing exercise for a week now. I did something to irritate a nerve or something in my hip and it is really painful. I did try a half hour on the gazelle today, went easy, because I am getting flabby just from a week of no exercise. lets say I don't like the look. lol./
well hope everyone is doing well and keep up the good work and we will achieve our goal.
