Interesting Day with All Liquids

Wednesday, May 05, 2010

I got up this morning and did my Spark video 10 minute thing. (I am so sore from yesterday I had trouble getting in and out of my car.) My butt is sore! I guess its a good thing. I did 45 minutes on the exercise bike. Got dressed. Did double good oral hygiene and went to have a little oral surgery. I had an extraction with a sinus lift so I can get an implant in a few months. It wasn't my first so I know what to expect. It sounds much worse than the actual reality. I am off the rest of the day....so far so good. When the numbness wears off completely I will take half a pain pill and then another one before I go to bed. Easy, peasy! Of course this the first time I have done it when I am behaving and going for the healthy life style. I had some yogurt and coffee when I got home. I am planning on a can of Progresso Light soup for a late lunch and then maybe a 60 calorie Blue Bunny ice cream treat after that. I will have some more soup later and another snack in the evening. All in all it should be a good day. Best of all it is easy because I know I can't risk popping the stitches in my mouth (which I have done before and don't recommend it). I will pick up on my regular diet tomorrow with a slightly softer texture for a couple days. It is interesting to me that I have no trouble with behaving when the alternative is no good (pain). I wish I was so good on PMS days or plain old bad days. Oh well. It all comes with the territory I guess. I am going to go get that half a pain pill since I am feeling everything again. Have a great day everyone. I will be happy and fuzzy-felling soon! Now if I can just decide between a nap and a pedicure this afternoon......

Staying On Track With Exercise

Tuesday, May 04, 2010

Well here we are at Tuesday. Monday is over but Friday is still off in the distance. I am still plugging along at 45 minutes on my LifeCycle every weekday morning and this is day four of the Fit, Firm & Fired Up challenge. I had a little trouble with the hips & glutes. I knew what I wanted them to do they just weren't cooperating this morning. I am sure I will get better as I go along. I can feel the upper abs from yesterday so something is definitely afoot. I still don't enjoy exercising. I read the posts of all the people that love it and I wish I did too. I know why I need to do it and I certainly know all the excuses not to do it. I can make myself do it. That is one of the nice things about getting older (not ancient just older). I can make myself do thing more easily now than ever. It is a good thing. I would still prefer to engage in a long list of activities than any form of exercise. I just keep looking to the future healthy me and I know that I can't be that without the physical component. Maybe I will learn to love it like I did brussels sprouts. I used to hate them. Now they are one of my favorite veggies. Maybe not. I will just go along and do what needs to be done...cause I can!

It's Monday and I'm back in the baggy clothes

Monday, May 03, 2010

I finally got one of the little trophy things on points. That was a silly little goal I had that I didn't write down. I am on day three of the Fit, Firm, Fired Up workout with Coach Nicole. It is really likable for exercise. I am still doing 45 minutes of cardio every morning during the week. I decided Monday-Friday for cardio and Monday-Sunday for the 10 minute workout. I can do anything for 10 minutes! Well I am back in the baggy work clothes today. It isn't supposed to be too windy in ABQ so I went with a long skirt. It's not like I can just go buy everything I like. I mean I probably could buy a few things but I want to drop a little more before I commit funds to the effort. Now jeans are a different story. I can wear them on the weekends and on casual Friday. That counts for all parts of my life. My work clothes are all getting too big. I am still wearing quite a few of them if they aren't too big. I have 3 pair of pants that are new and size 10s from Coldwater Creek which should get me through the transition phase. Tops are a little more forgiving as far as being too big. I have replaces a couple of things but for the most part I will life with what I have until I am where I want to be....which takes me back to my first love, shoes. I am being picky since I am not desperate for any but I learned a long time ago it is easier to keep an eye out for different styles all the time. You never know when the big sale will happen. I had such a good time this weekend trying on clothes. That is really weird since I have never been a fan of the size I wear. Funny thing about that....I remember thinking I was "chubby" my whole life. I look back at pictures now and think I musta been nuts. I would kill (not really) for that body now. You know the one before gravity spent 50 years lowering everything. Who know, I am hoping to have some skin removed about a year after I finish losing. I might have some gravity removed while I'm at it. Maybe I can find a few more guys who want to do the same thing and we can get a group rate!

Smaller Size.....Woo Hoo!

Sunday, May 02, 2010

Well I went and got my new jeans. I fit in 10s in most sizes. I don't think that's right but it is true. Maybe they changed the measurements of the jeans and didn't say anything. I fit in Coldwater Creek size 10s but the run big usually. I am excited to be in that small a size at this point. It means I might settle in 8s once I am at goal. I don't ever remember wearing a size 8 even as a baby. I might actually start enjoying clothes as much as shoes. I would have never imagined that. It isn't like I don't LOVE shoes. I just might start loving clothes also. I found a brand of jeans that look great but were only $40 (not on sale). I am uploading a picture. I liked these almost as much as NYDJ and the were less than half the price. I think I will use this brand until I get where I want to be and then I will get some that look spectacular. Hope everyone had a great weekend so far! And a big shout out to QUEENDUNN. She gave me some Jeans as a Goodie. Too cool!!

Happy Saturday/May Day

Saturday, May 01, 2010

The weekend is here, finally. Weekends should be longer. I am getting ready to head out to get some smaller pants. I seem to be in need of some that fit. This is a wonderful problem to have though. Everyone at work tells me my clothes are too loose but I have liked them a little loose most of my adult lift. Muffin top is a national fashion plague. I have no intention of being a part of that. If you can't see the belt loops on your jeans because of overhang (for the love of fashion) please don't leave your house. If you don't own a mirror please buy one. No one wants to see overhang. The mall sometimes scares me. I love shopping but it is sometimes a little too much to see what people, men and women, consider to be okay to be seen in. No one appointed me to be the fashion police but we could use a refresher course in what looks good and what doesn't. I am not immune to bad choices either. Mine won't be exposing too much fat though. If anything I go the other way. Baggy clothes aren't a fashion statement you want to make either. It can be a challenge to look your best but it is a worthy goal. It won't bring about world peace or save the planet, both very worthy goals, but it is a nice superficial idea.
