Days 20 & 21 of Boot camp Challenge

Saturday, January 24, 2009

I did the day 20 & 21 of the boot camp challenge today plus the bonus video for Saturday. The bonus video was back extentions on the ball and it felt good!
I also did my walk in the morning but I left too late to get a good 45 minute 2 mile walk since it was already to warm and humid. I did some extra exercises as well.
The diabetic nutritionist told me since I have gout and diabetes, I need to wait until after my 2nd daily meal to exercise until I have enough carbs to do some good. I am not fond of this idea since I like to do my walk, eat a little breakfast, wait a bit then do my work out so I have the rest of the day to do other things. Sometimes this just gets so annoying!

    I'm like you I like to get the exercise out of the way early in the morning. However I know when the Dr. took me off exercise for 6 months I thought no way but I stuck with it because he said it would do me good which it did. I was better off after that break than I was the year or two before that. I know you may not like what the Dr. says but she does know better. Stick with it. Hope

To be honest, all I did today was go to the grocery store, 3 loads of laundry, finished a cross stitch project, cleaned the kitchen & cooked again. Which means I will be doing double exercises tomorrow.

I did manage to get down my 8 cups of water though.

Day 19 of boot camp

Thursday, January 22, 2009

Since I was lazy yesterday and didn't do anything, I made up for it today. Today is our weekend here, like Saturday in the real world. I did get up and do my 30 minute walk, I did the Wednesday and Thursday boot camp workout videos and the bonus exercise. It felt good to exercise

So now the drs. tell me I have gout and the diabetic nutritionist I went to last night told me I need a Low Purine diet which means cutting more stuff out of my diet now. So I guess I can eat lettuce, tomato, cucumber, a small apple, 1/2 a banana, 1/3 cup rice. Let's not forget yogurt, laban, lebneh.(the last two are SAudi foods) I was reading about gout, I do not have sore, inflamed joints but I have too much protien in my urine. UGH!

Getting old SUCKS!

    My Dad had Gout and was in pain for about 3 years. He took pills to help him. It went away after 3 years. I can remember going to Disney World with him and he could hardly walk but I felt good because I treated them to something they would never get to see again. I planned to have them fly in a plane and they had never flown in a plane before. That saved Mom from driving all the way. Get help for that because it can get worse and watch your diet like your Dr. says.

Challenge for Day 18

Thursday, January 22, 2009

I'm a day late with thie but the bonus challenge from Wednesday was:
Your Bonus Challenge for Wednesday (optional) is to create a new blog entry on your SparkPage. You can use this time to discuss your recent progress with Bootcamp in general, or delve into a topic or issue that has been hurting your progress, so you can try to come up with some solutions to stay on track. Use this entry to your advantage, whether you need to vent (instead of turning to food to stifle your feelings), come up with a new schedule for your workouts (so that you'll do them instead of putting them off), or rediscover your motivation for doing the Bootcamp

So here is my vent, discussion or whatever. Nothing is happening. I have lost 1/4 of an ince on my waist, nothing anywhere else. My scales say one thing, the ones at the drs say another. My scales say 143, the dr says 66.7 kilos, not the same, but then I went at 5PM in the evening, after eating breakfast, lunch and drinking water. I just have to keep trying.

    I'm not sure how much kilos is. I know I was 210 one morning then had breadfast, lunch 8glasses of water and 4 cups of coffee and had on heavy clothes. When I weighed at the Drs. that day I was 213. Go Figure! However my weights been coming down .5 at a time for a week. I remember losing 1/2 in in my waist which I thought was nothing but the next month I had more progress. Its slow at first then really comes off. I still haven't lost the pounds but am little by little. Hope

I know I should say something about the presidential inaugration yesterday, but it is an event that takes place every 4 years, do it and get on with it. I personally don't need the circus act that goes with it.

I woke up sore and stiff this morning, my neck & shoulders are sore, probably from doing too much exercise the past couple days. I didn't walk this morning either. Today will be a bad day for me. IT's the start of the weekend too, Wednesday here is like Friday in the real world.

Took Spot kitty to the vets last night, he has a cavity in a tooth so they will fix it today and we can pick him up tonight.
I also have an appointment with a diabetic nutritionist tonight so I am trying to get all my Spark pages together to show her/him along with my weekly menus and information I do have from various American web sites. We'll see what she/he says. I feel like a need a suitcase to take all this information around in. I know I need to take all my medication, my test kit, blood work paper work, reading material and someting to stitch while I'm waiting, LOL.

That's my exciting day in a nutshell.
I did stitch last night too, almost got my little project done.

    Your blood sugar should be low because of all the exercise. A day off from exercise is OK since sometimes we overdue it. YOu need a break sometimes. An example is the soreness. I hope things turn out good at the diabetic nutrionalist. emoticon
