Day 7 Boy do my feet hurt

Sunday, September 26, 2010

Today, I walked a 5k for MMRF Multiple Myeloma research. My boyfriend's father was diagnosed this past spring with it. I ended up walking the race in about 1:19:30. It was around Lake Phanlen and part of a path that wasn't around the lake. I was pretty happy with that. I fell behind the team of 30 but I have my own pace, and I can't walk as fast as some. (say b/f deary) but I don't care. I of course, did it and I'm proud of it. Ok, first Phanlen isn't hard to do and it's a nice walk I use to walk it with my cousin all the time. So it wasn't difficult. I mean more that I did the walk for something good today so that makes me proud.

The Team was called Tommy Tonn's Team and the goal was to raise 1,500 and our team actually raised 2,160 to go toward research to cure this cancer.

I know everyone talks about the walk for breast cancer and all those fundraisers. Those are VERY IMPORTANT ! but sometimes the other cancers I feel and I could be wrong kind of get forgotten until someone you know is diagnosed with it. So, I'm making it my goal next year to walk at least 5 different Cancer research walks. My entry fee for that walk will be worth it because every cent counts. I know there are NAMI walks, MMRF, Breast Cancer and I'm very sure I can find other ones. I remember when I was younger we did the Harvest walk which was for hunger and food shelves. Also very important these days. I am confident that I can find plenty of walks for causes to participate. I get a benefit too, =) as well as the programs doing this fundraiser.

Later on during the course of my day, I had to work. So 5 hours there on my feet and boy they hurt very bad. They are swollen with edema and just hurt like a SOB.

It was a chilly morning. I had a T-shirt on, a sweatshirt, and that T-shirt and I wished I had mittens or gloves to wear on my hands.

It says 1:30:29 but we didn't start the walk until 11 minutes.

    I just joined today... :) I need all the support I can get this time around. I have lost 100 pounds before... got "hot" and "pretty" lol - then I got depressed and gained it all back. I am soooo happy to hear you just started back up again yourself - while it's not the best of circumstances to "meet" under, I do commend you for starting again and perhaps YOUR 7 day experience/advantage on here(over me) will help me... I hope we can support one another ? Great job on your walk for MMRF and keep up your good work! I will accept any encouraging words you have to offer - doesn't even have to be directed at me - just updates re: your struggles and your successes will give me hope (I hope) :) Happy walkin!

    Congrats on doing it! I Google Minnesota running races for my races. You could probably Google something for walks and find a list of walks to do. I will keep you in mind if I find anything. You are doing great.

Day 2 Goals

Tuesday, September 21, 2010

My Goals that I must work on for the next 2 weeks.
~Lose 2-4lbs.
~Stay away from Pop if I have to have one; drink diet.
~ Exercise for 30 minutes a day don't fret on how many calories you burned. Just exercise.

On a side note, I'm watching a marathon of one of my favorite shows. Warehouse 13. On the last episode one of the character was undercover as a supermodel. Anyway she was wearing this gorgeous dress. I mentioned I would love to look like that. (ok the actress is average she is no supermodel but the dress was very flattering on her that she looked wonderful) so D says to me. "you are" awww I felt great after that. What a wonderful boyfriend. emoticon

    Great goals to get you going again - but I wouldn't even focus on the 2-4 pounds - focus on moving some and eating better (the diet soda) and the pounds will follow.

And you do have a great guy there! Hang on to him!

Day 1 Starting over!!!

Monday, September 20, 2010

I'm staring over today. Once again I end up having to do so. I've gained so much weight back, I'm so disappointed in myself. I've taken away my awards or trophys of lbs lost because I don't deserve them at the moment. I'll get them back eventually but right now they are gone. So, here It is I starting my goals over to loose 2 lbs a week on average and hopefully by June I'll be an ideal weight!

Portion sizes

Thursday, September 16, 2010

I hate measuring everything out. It makes you feel like you're not eating enough especially when it's on a plate that is large. So, I went to the storage unit and grabed my plates and bowls that are smaller probably the recommended 9 inches instead of the 12-15 inches that plates tend to come in now. The dishes I have can't go in the microwave, due to little metal on the edges but that is fine. They are also not recommended for dishwashers but I don't have one of those. So, this way I don't have to measure out but oz's or grams I can just kind of have my meal on this plate if it doesn't fit then it I probably don't need as much of something or not.

I tried it today, I had my cousin over and we used the bowls but they are not deep bowls for the pasta and I had it filled and I thought it was enough, I was full by the time I finished. Now I know that if I had it on the larger Corel plates I would have put a lot more pasta on that plate and probably ate too much. I'm now a true believer in what you see on your "full" dish helps control your portions or not if you use a larger dish.
