Days 10 and 11

Friday, November 12, 2010

11/10, 11
Wed. was a discouraging day for me. I have only lost .6 of a pound this month and my goal was 3 lbs. I checked my Spark Summary Calendar and I have been in my eating range every day and have exercised for 30 minutes a day or more except Sun. I also missed exercising on Sat. – craft fair.

Thurs. was a much better day. I am back to my positive self. Went to the gym and did 30 minutes on the treadmill at an increased pace and went 1.5 miles on the bike. I am going to do this no matter what the scales say. I am getting healthier and stronger.

    Why do the scales insist on 3 forms of identification, a notorized request submission and 10 day waiting period?

You are doing everything that you are suppose to be doing. Sometime that scale doesn't show all the good things that you do. You got more than 1/2 the month yet and also , any release of weight is a good thing.
Just keep on doing what you are, success will be yours.

    Yvonne, you are doing awesome! Remember that sometimes that ole scale lies! It can be persnickety and take time to catch up with what we're doing. Just keep doing what you know to do, and it will have NO OPTION but to go in the right direction! As you know, eating and exercising will help you feel better - and after all, that's the most important thing, anyway:-) The change of the scale is really the side benefit:-) It'll come - it won't have any choice!

You go, girl!

Day 9

Wednesday, November 10, 2010

11/8/10
Had GS this morning. When they got here, his Mom opened the door about an inch. I went over a peaked out. He was peaking in. He is so adorable. We went to the mall and walked/ran. He didn’t run as much as usual – too busy looking around. After our walk, we went to Target so I could push him in the cart and get some more exercise. Then we went to the toy department and played with the toys. I love trying all the noisemakers out and with my GS there, I had a good excuse too. What a fun morning.

Day 7

Tuesday, November 09, 2010

11/7
Did my yoga exercises in the morning. Went to lunch with a friend, stopped at the grocery store and then went to the gym. I did 65 minutes of exercises today. Kept my food under the calorie limit. It was at the high end and I need to keep it at the low end to loose weight. Got my water and F/V in. In other words I had a good day.

Day 6 and 7

Monday, November 08, 2010

11/6 and 7
Had a wonderful day today. My DIL called and asked me to go to a craft fair with her. I got some pumpkin butter, peach salsa, a Christmas gift for GD, and cookies. I didn’t say cookies did I. ;-) They were all homemade and we got to pick out what cookies we wanted. Will freeze most of them for Christmas.

After the craft fair, we went to lunch and then shopping. What a special day. Unfortunately I didn’t get any exercise in. :-(

    Sounds like a great weekend Yvonne and I agree with the others, all that walking probably got you more exercise than you realize. My kids were helping at the bazaar the ladies group at my work hosted on Saturday. I know there were several others around the valley as well.

    Hi Yvonne
You said you had a wonderful day and You did. You were disappointed in not making a goal. As suggested by others, when you were at the craft show, you were not riding anywhere , you were walking, walking is an exercise. That is why I loved wearing the pedometer, it shows all the steps we take and each step is exercising. So, I think instead of not making your exercise goal, I would give you credit for it.
Something you said at the beginning was you had a wonderful day. I thought, I have never seen anyone including myself that had as a goal, have a wonderful day. I believe that part of healthy living that allows our mind to function better is having great feelings during the day. that than allows our body to function healthier. I guess my point is you had a wonderful day and that is awesome.
I think you had an awesome week, congratulations

    Good morning,
You said you got no exercise. If I know anything about craft sales, you did a lot of walking there. Sometimes, we forget the various ways of getting exercise.

Sometimes, I go to garage sales (in and out of car and walking around) to get exercise.

Another thing I do at church when we are standing singing the uptemple songs, I move my feet and arms to the music. Amazing how much exercise we get doing that.

All the best to you.

P.S. I liked your goal met and would like to adapt part of it for our team page (I am one of the leaders)

Day 5

Saturday, November 06, 2010

11/5

Missed they gym today. Mom had a rough morning. This afternoon DH suggested going for a walk. Went outside, the sun was shining and it was warm. Sunshine is good medicine for me. It is something my body craves and fortunately we get a lot of it here.

I have tweaked my goals some. I will include yoga, knee exercises and cardio in the 30 minutes of exercise. On the days that I did yoga and knee exercises it was very difficult to get in 30 minutes of cardio too. Looking forward to see how this works out.

    Yay for sunshine! Yay for getting outside to enjoy it! Yay for hubby knowing what you needed! Sorry to hear your Mom is having a rough day. Praying she will rest peacefully tonight! It sounds wise to plan different workouts for different days -- it all adds up, and variety is good to keep you motivated!

    PTL balance is coming! Just because you made an adjustment doesn't mean it will always be easy but hopefully it is more manageable. Keep striving! Sunshine is always good medicine, glad DH encouraged you to enjoy it, get some exercise and have time with him, what a winning combination! Make sure you reward your DH too, he blesses you to so many ways and can be your best source of encouragement on this journey.

And I have to agree the sunshine here is awesome. I think this is one of the best places to live, but I could be a little biased?

    The sun is wonderful here, I agree! Its a far cry from the smoggy gray skies that is often experienced in the northeast. Even the skies at night here are beautiful. I love gazing at the stars, but I also know I need to get my zzz's. emoticon
