Well apparently my sinus trouble is actually a migraine. Or at least that's the new flavor of the week diagnosis.

Any ways, got an injection of immitrex and my head doesn't feel like it is going to explode.

Now I can just barely keep my eyes open.

I am feeling somewhat depressed because this will be day two of no exercise.

Also, today was work potluck day (worst of all: italian food) and I ate an ENORMOUS amount of food. So much so, I stopped bothering to track it because it was that ridiculous. I've gotta come up with a better plan on potluck days (luckily they aren't THAT often).

I'm going to keep trying, but I feel like a definite failure right now. emoticon

Sinus Trouble

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

All my life I've had bad allergies.

I think I'm at the point where I need to get an x-ray of my sinus cavities. I constantly have sinus headaches, and its getting more frequent . And most days they are untouchable.

Last year I was falling downstairs...I went to an allergist and got different medication.

This year I'm taking all the medication, PLUS taking a lot of ibuprofen when my headaches flare up...and now the meds aren't even touching the pain.

As I sit here, I am contemplating a jack hammer to the face (I'm joking) because it would probably distract me from the pain.

My nose is running but the pressure isn't being relieved.

Its hard to motivate myself to get on the treadmill when all I want to do is throw up. emoticon


Time to Get Down & Dirty

Monday, September 24, 2012

I stepped on the scale today and found out I only lost .5lbs this week. I was shooting for at least 1lb. I was disappointed at first. I felt that the number on the scale should reflect a higher loss.

Then I got myself together and decided to be real with myself and reflect upon last week:
1) I was either in the upper range of my calorie goal or over all last week.
2) I went for a walk every day.

In conclusion: Although I was successful in achieving having physical activity incorporated into my daily routine...I have room to improve when it comes to the eating department.

Any ways, I decided to shake off my disappointment and spend today focused on my goals. I made some sparkpeople receipes, enrolled in the sparkcoach program, and now I am blogging my little heart though.

I consider myself succesful already. Now its just time to work on the numbers....

    Tracking everything on Spark People helps raise awareness of what I'm really putting in my mouth or how much I'm exercising. Good luck reaching your goals!

    You can do it no reason to worry.

    Always think positive and that is great. Don't worry about half pound. We, the women have some days that gain weight. Maybe the next week you'll lose 3 pounds or more. Be faithful on what you are doing to lose weight. Remember you can gain weight from muscles, too. Have a great evening.

15 minute cardio > cup of coffee

Friday, September 21, 2012

I just walked for 15 minutes and felt great afterwards. Definitely made my body feel a better.


I still feel slightly exhausted after this full week but I am glad I got on the treadmill.


Rising Above the Slump

Friday, September 21, 2012

The last two weeks I have noticed that I started the first half of the week really weel. Meeting my caloric intake at the minimum level and not going over. However towards the end of the week, with the stress and all the other things going on, I've been going over what I should be eating.

I'm not sure if any one else has this problem. If so, how do you avoid it?

I might try to stock up on fruits and veggies mid-week and see if it makes a difference.

Despite the exhaustion, I am still going to get on my treadmill here in a moment. I am not going to push as hard as usual but I will stick with my goals.

    Maybe, I haven't been paying attention but thank you for that thought. I wouldn't be suprised. I will start to track that. emoticon

    Do you get less sleep as the week goes on? That can often trigger us back-sliding into poorer eating habits.

Just a thought! At least you're starting your week's off right, that's half the battle!
