Women's Healthy Weight Day

Thursday, January 21, 2010

This is from my SparkPeople Day At A Glance Desk Calendar:
Today is Women's Healthy Weight Day. Dropping just 10% of your body weight (if you are overweight) can significantly improve your blood pressure, cholesterol levels and overall heart health.

This is our weekend here in Saudi Arabia, today is like Saturday in the real world, the day for errands. Had to do a little bit of grocery shopping this morning and right now, I an ready for a nap. No ambition today. Maybe I will take this as my day of rest from exercising and let my ankle rest up a bit too. Maybe it won't hurt as much tomorrow when I do my cardio.

    Thanks for the calendar information. I also liked how you gave a little glimpse of life in Saudia Arabia. It is very interesting to see how other people live.

Bootcamp so far & Happy Birthday

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

HAPPY HAPPTY 32ND BIRTHDAY TO MY DAUGHTER! I called her before she went to work this morning her time but I really wish I could be with her.

So the boot camp is going ok. I don't do it as often as I did the others but I'm not going to beat myself up over not doing it. Pick myself up and move on and keep up with the rest of it as much as I can.
I still can't do the cardio video, too much hopping and jumping around. My DDD girls just don't like all the jumping no matter how tight my bra is and my ankle still isn't 100% back to normal and hurts a little bit.
I really do like these bootcamps and will continue joining them.

THANK YOU to the coaches and leaders that organize them.

    I can't imagine working out with DDD's I have a hard enough time jumping with my C's. You go girl that takes strength to start off. Keep up the good work.

I was hoping for some travel/vacation ones like a passport, suitcase, airplane, train etc and how about a foot wrapped in an ace bandage, a leg in a cast, some crutches, wheelchair, hospital sign.

Bootcamp-January 19

Tuesday, January 19, 2010

I love today's video, it's my favorite, I do it frequently so it's easy for me.
For the Challenge, I had a whole grain cereal for breakfast and whole grain bread for lunch. I only eat whole grains due to diabetes.
I also did 35 minutes of Walk Away The Pounds for the cardio part.

The wind isn't blowing today but there is still sand in the air. It's hazy and overcast but not as bad as it was yesterday.

Daily Desk Calendar note-TURN OFF THE TV

Tuesday, January 19, 2010

Spark People's daily desk calendar note for January 19:

Turn off the TV. Women who watch 43 -86 minutes of TV per day had higher blood pressure and triglyceride levels than those who watched less--even though they exercised regularly, according to one study.
No wonder I have high blood pressure, it's the tv's fault. Maybe I should give my tv the Diovan I have to take! My tv is on more for noise while I do other things than it is for watching.

    Don't they consider the TV is still on even though it is for noise only because your subconscious mind is watching. Turn on a radio for noise instead you will be more apt to dance and that counts for extra pounds gone. Have a nice day.
