Chest Cold / Flu / 5k

Saturday, March 24, 2012

I took work off today so that I could participate in a Colon Cancer 5k ... I know you can exercise when you are sick but, when it's in your chest you run the risk of prolonging the sickness and I cant afford to do that because of today I will go and walk the 3 miles at my own pace.

While I was sick this week I did NO exercise what so ever ... I wish the sickness would have kept me from eating ... instead it just kept me from making good eating choice.... much to my surprise my scale said the exact same weight as last week this hopefully when I wake up tomorrow I will feel better and can move on like this week never happened! emoticon

    It's hard to do cardio when the cold is in your chest. Anywhere else, you can manage, but you don't want to be struggling for air or coughing your lungs out while you're exercising. Good for you for walking the 5k at your own pace today. Take care of yourself and I hope this passes soon!

    I do use saucers it helps trick my brain ...the shrimp is Gortons Shrimp Poppers. It's 90 Grams which was 1 serving 260 Calories...the egg, strawberries and grapes accounted for the other 100 or so calories.

    Oh my, those look delicious! I used to take pictures of my meals too. So, that looks like a lot of food for 300 calories. Do you use smaller plates? You must, because the food just looks like it's spilling over. What kind of shrimp do you use? I LOVE shrimp and would love to have it without blowing my fat and sodium levels!

I could be to my goal weight by the end of September!

Sunday, March 11, 2012

I've thought it through and I've decided that unless I'm trying to lose weight...I'm gaining it really wouldn't be in my best interest to keep trying to lose 2lbs a week for the next 30 weeks ... if I do I will just be burned out for the Winter and the Winter is when I diet the best I just need to stay 100 % on track for the next 4 weeks (for my work contest) and then after that ... maintain for 6 months so that at the end of September I can be ready to go again and lose my remaining 50 pounds just in time for Summer and my 10 year anniversary to Islands. emoticon

    I know how you feel, however, at least you have a loss! You are not gaining and you are not at a standstill. I still have so long to go, and now that I'm past my initial month of big numbers being lost on the scale, I have to think each week that it's two pounds less than last week and I think of how I would feel if the 24 lbs I've lost was still on me. Yuck! I'm so proud of you and you are reallly inspiring me to keep going. It's because of you that I am even back on here! You CAN do this. You've already proven that!
