Bootcamp catchup

Saturday, May 10, 2008

Wow, I spent this evening doing a catchup on the Bootcamp videos, I've done my cardio on every day except one. I couldn't do more than walk early in the week because my IBS flared up. I did videos 1,2,3 and 5 tonight I suspect I will be sore tomorrow. Tomorrow I'm going to pick up a little extra cardio if I can and do the day 7 and day 4 videos as they both work the core, which wasn't done in any of the videos I did today. I'll add in day 6 to my Sunday work and I should then be all caught up. I'm really surprised I got through 4 of those videos today.



Oh no! Over calories

Wednesday, May 07, 2008

I'm 220 or so calories over for today. I've been within my calorie range or under for about a month or a month and a half. Today my PMS got the best of me and I had way too much potato salad and some m&ms. I guess at least it was mustard potato salad but yeah I don't have any idea why other than being hormonal. Guess I will try and walk a bit more tonight.

    OMG!! Only once?? You are doing great!! Don't worry! Or if you are worried, just eat 220 less over the next day or so! Remember, if you eat less your calories over all, you still lose weight (as TESTER said)

    ther eare actually people on spark who do what's called calorie cycling, where they go up and down in their daily calories, it keeps the body having to metabloize so it doesn't get used to anything. Don't beat youself up over it, treat each day as a brand new clean slate

    You're doing great! One set back in that long is awesome!!! Don't let it get you down! I'm pretty crazy about my calories myself & think I'd be upset, but, I'd want you to tell me to not worry, that I'll be back on track tomorrow. Have a great day!!! Becky

Boot Camp

Sunday, May 04, 2008

Well, didn't weight this morning, so will have to go with my weight from a couple of days ago of 150.2. So far today hasn't been too bad for most of the day. My exercise so far though has consisted of about 35 minutes of putt putt golf. I logged this, but hope I can do some more exercise in a bit though that might not happen.


Migraines suck!

Friday, May 02, 2008

Ugh, today has been a bit of a disaster. I had to work late tonight which I'm not used to doing which was bad enough. Then the weather was dreary this morning, kinda blah. I get up I'm fine, puttering around, since of course I can't sleep late. Send my boss an email reminding him I won't be in til late. Then....all of a sudden my vision goes completely blurry. Scary! It only lasted a few minutes, but that was enough. And definitely killed my appetite.

I exercised(yay!), then after that was done, and after my shower... beginnings of a headache. Sure enough apparently I had an aura, though don't recall ever having one before, by the time I get to work, yeah migraine. Normally I'm just light sensitive and nauseaus.

Anyway, I didn't even reach my calorie goals today because of the nausea feeling and just not feeling like eating. I ate maybe half my chicken, and picked at my potatoes and veggies. I had a banana and apple juice(which tends to calm my nausua) and treated myself to a chocolate cookie for a snack as I was at work feeling miserable. All I really wanted to do was curl up under a blanket away from the light, the only shining point of the migraine was eyeball didn't throb like it sometimes does.

Then tonight I at least bought food even though I didn't get to even pick up food til 9:45pm. Eating late at night has never been good for me, normally it wakes me up. I bought a small pasta and a side salad from Fazoli's. I ate maybe 1/3 of the pasta at best, closer to 1/4 and about the same on my salad. Total calories for today 889. This is more like what my daily calories seemed to be when I first started Spark and started making myself eat more. It's now 11:45PM really too late to eat anything else and I couldn't eat anything if I wanted to.

Some things that works to stop them for both my son & I are a long shower w/ the shower massage on very hard & caffine...don't worry about eating, etc. today, each day you just have to do the best you can! Good luck!!

    Ugh, sorry to hear it. I get tunnel vision before my migranes. I'm just really lucky I have very minor ones. My brother had to be hospitalized while in Paris on vacation because of a migrane. I know that wasn't fun.

I hope you're feeling better today!

    I'm so sorry. I'm lucky that mine seem to be primarily hormonal in nature, so when I was younger, this was an issue for me, but not nearly as much anymore. I wouldn't wish a migraine on anyone.

    I think mine was the weather change. It affects my sinuses or allergies which often seems to trigger a migraine.

    Ugg. I'm so sorry.
I get auras with my migranes where I can't see for about ahalf hour. No fun.
Sounds like you had a stessful day planned. Stress is a factor for my migranes, I know. And not enough sleep.
Hope you feel well soon.

Guilty for a good cause

Wednesday, April 30, 2008

So today I kinda feel guilty about my food choices. First I had a hamburger in the cafe, no fries, I had a banana instead. For some reason our cafe has tried to vary it's menu more, but a lot of the new stuff is stuff I wouldn't eat. Then after work, I met some friends at Baskin Robbins for 31 cent scoop night. I had a single scoop of mint chocolate chip, so yummy. All the proceeds tonight went to the firefighters so it WAS for a good cause at least. Also I'm still in calorie range so at least I haven't completely blown it.

    A treat now and then is a good thing. If you are still in range, then don't feel guilty. ( Just don't do it every day)
