Getting Better

Thursday, April 08, 2010

I am happy my back was not too bad that with one day of complete rest I was able to do my gym work today. I did the weights, the machines and 2 aerobics to get a great workout. I think the heating bad and hot showers did the trick. I am being careful for sure.

One of the ladies in the building is moving so she had a huge sale on this floor today. There was tons of people coming to get a deal. I did my share I got a box of plastic crafts sheets must be 40 sheets in the box placemat size and I got them for 6 dollars. I like to do this craft you can make tons of things. plus my sister can use them too so i will mail her some in NV.

I have been having so MANY COMMENTS ABOUT MY WEIGHT. i AM LOOKING THIN IN THE LARGE CLOTHES i AM STILL WEARING. sorry about caps just do not want to retype. emoticon I have no idea what my size is yet. Have not had the time to really check. many are telling me to stop losing that I am fine. I really wish people would let me do what I want to and not tell me what i need to do. I really do not know what my goal weight will be. If you go by my body fat I have 18% to still lose. I am 155. I think 120 to 130 in this range. I am 5 '4 so i know at least 100 pounds to 5 foot and then 5 pounds for every inches over. But I do not think it is a rule for someone over my age which is 59. Anyone have any comments??

Back Pain?

Wednesday, April 07, 2010

Well here I am sitting with back pain, have no idea what happened. I was doing laundry late last night. was sitting reading a paper, did not know how long I read but suddenly noticed that my back was stiff and hurting. It slowly got worse through out the night I had to use a heating pad hoping it would help. Plus vicoden, and I finally slept. Work up still in pain. Have been having back spasms all day. I made decision not to lift my weights today. I am still wondering how I did this. I do not wnat this to happen again. I did do 30 min. on the elliptical that afternoon and it was the first time. I thought maybe I did not have my back straight while doing it, and the sitting made it worse. I really do not know. Just angry with myself and my body that I am in pain and cannot keep up my program. This had to happen the day after I saw my doctor too.

So here I am in pain and very angry and not knowing if I will be ok tomorrow or not.

    I wouldn't think it was the elliptical. The elliptical is good for you because there is no jarring and pounding like there is when you walk.
Maybe you lifted too much weight. Or possibly had bad form while lifting weights. Either way, take it easy and rest.
Hope you feel better soon.

    I'm having back pain today, too! I'm looking at it as an "enforced rest day", will pop a couple of Advil, and back to life tomorrow! You are doing great, Posey, on your weight loss progress!! Keep it up and good luck!

Good Day

Tuesday, April 06, 2010

I woke up at 630 am this morning. I was shocked. I got a lot done today. I am getting settled in. Trying on clothes, getting rid of clothes. It is feeling so good. The gym is across the street takes me less than 5 min to get there. I had the Zumba class last night that was great. I did 90 min. of aerobics today I was so happy that I did the elliptical for 30 min. for the first time. Along with the 60 min of treadmill. I ending up doing 6 miles. I really had a great day. But I am very tired. Had to do tons of laundry today with finding so many things I can where which I have not ever been able to fit into. see these clothes were given to me last year, and I just loved them that I kept them in case I did lose weight. So now it is like Christmas hey either fit or are too big now. I am so siked about this.

It is nice to be able to pick what I want to eat now with no worries of what I can eat. So all is good and I am thankful for a GREAT DAY LIKE THIS,

Doing Great

Monday, April 05, 2010

This is what my doctor told me today when he noticed how much weight I had lost in the 6 months since my last appointment. He complemented me a lot and said It was the best thing I could do for myself. He said I bet you have a lot more energy now. I told him I gave up sugar and diet sodas and the cravings are gone. He did not tell me I could not keep on going. I told him that I had 38% body fat still and I want to get into the twenties. So he ordered all my labs to see how things are doing. my blood pressure was only 109/68 which is great improvement. Told him I cannot wit to see what my cholesterol will be like. Having hi9m check protein levels also. So things are good.

I did 30 min. on the treadmill then I did an hour of weights and an hour of machines, I am doing the Zumba class tonight it last 75 min. that is a great workout. Does any one know if you can put the machines or the weightlifting down as exercise minutes??

    I count them as minutes. I quick track them and label them strength training. Your Dr. must have enjoyed your visit. One less patient to lecture! Have a great evening.

    I know how. In the "My Fitness" section there will be a Strength training section. Click add strength training and you can pull it up from the drop down list or create your own. Good luck! Keep up the great work!

This is my first Easter with Spark. I did great with my dinner. I still have a few calories for tonight's fruit. I had a busy day. I was sad I did not go to worship today, I did say a pray and thank Jesus for dying for me but i know that was not much I need to learn to show him that I love him more. one of those things I need to work on. I did a day of rest today. I have my regular appt. with my MD cannot wait to see what he says about my weight loss. I will do my weights in am and cardio then go to MD then come back for a Zomba class at 6 pm so i have a very busy day fot tomorrow.

Hope everyone had a great Easter, it is spring and I feel happy about where I am right now. thanks friends for all your blog responses and words of encouragement means a lot. emoticon
