Totally blew it!!

Monday, March 21, 2011

Have not tracked food in over a week. Have not exercised in weeks. Grandkids are a handful and don't seem to fit well into my healthy life style. Will have to work on it more. Have been practicing portion control and taking kids to park often. My blood sugars are staying steady. Should head out tomorrow for Colorado. Don't know if the weather will hold. They are forecasting Snow. May have to go around through New Mexico. This will add an extra day of traveling. Looking forward to seeing DH. I have been away too long. Miss DH much. Will spend the next 2 weeks packing house for permanent move back to Arizona. Starting new job on April 10th. Unfortunately DH has a contract to fulfill and wont be able to follow me out until June. Not really looking forward to separating again. Longest time we have been apart in 20 yrs. Just want to get my life back on track. It has been too hectic for too long.

    Wow that sounds like a lot to juggle!...It's kind of like that one day at a time way of handling things...not looking at EVERYthing all at once that may seem overwhelming, but just focusing on the task at hand

    That's a lot to cope with, you definitely have to be patient with yourself. Hopefully things will work out for the best, as you try to get your eating and exercising to the place they should be. All the best to you. emoticon

    Your life sounds like it is in definite turmoil which of course leads to stress, which in turn usually leads to poor eating choices, which leads to poor health, which leads to poor motivation, which leads to poor attitude, which leads to giving up. But I see a silver lining! You AREN'T GIVING UP!! Keep trying to make the small things work and when all the pieces of your life start to fall back into place, low and behold, you will be right where you want to be! Healthier and happier.
I pray for protection for you in your travels and a fast reunion with your DH. God Bless!

Staying active

Sunday, March 06, 2011

So my exercising routine has gone down hill in the five days i've been on vacation. We are eating out too much, although I have been good at portion control. Still not doing as well as I thought. Finding it very difficult to meet my calorie goals. My grandbabies are keeping me so busy I forget to eat. I have done really bad at meeting my nutritional goals as well. I have decided I am going to keep tracking my food everyday and try to eat more often to keep my blood sugar even. As for the exercising, we are walking to the park and playing chase at the park and my daughter has dragged me to the Mall everyday since I have been here getting ready for my granddaughters 1st birthday party. I misplaced my pedometer but those steps are adding up too. I don't want to stress over trying to stick to it like I do at home. At home I don't have all these wonderful distractions. I figure If I don't gain any weight while I am here I am ahead of the game. I came to enjoy myself and I am doing that. emoticon emoticon

Feeling a little dejected today. Weighed myself for the first time in 6 weeks and I GAINED 8 pds. I have been working hard watching what I eat, working out and staying active. I cant believe I gained and didn't lose any weight.

    OH that horrible scale!! emoticon Def time to take some measurements and think about how your clothes are fitting. The scale isn't the ONLY way to measure success!

Also think about how much healthier you are getting just by exercising and eating better... it will add up (er... down, LOL) in the long run! emoticon
We're here for ya!! emoticon

    I agree with the other post....don't give up! Sometimes things seem to get a lil worse before they get better, but they WILL get better. emoticon

    Don't give up. Move forward. You can do this.
Have you measured. Maybe you lost inches instead of weight.
Keep on smiling. emoticon

On Vacation

Wednesday, March 02, 2011

Spent all day traveling. 10 hr drive. My body is sore from sitting so long. The grandbabies are wonderful!!! Had sooo much fun today. I still got in my workout and then we walked to the park and chased each other around until we were rolling around on the ground with laughter. Life is pretty darn good. emoticon

PS This is the first time in over 15 yr of making this trip that I DID NOT stop for fast food. I prepared my meals the day before and stuck to it!!!! emoticon

Much better

Monday, February 28, 2011

Okay so my Blood sugars are starting to return to normal. I have been meditating for about 15 min. a day or a short 5 min. if I'm feeling stressed. My DH laughed when he saw me, but since my sugars are returning to normal he's not saying much. LOL emoticon I was really starting to worry about my BS so I was impressed when they started to reduce. I have decided metitating will be a regular part of my daily routine.

On a happier note I will be leaving tomorrow on vacation. (Visiting my Daughter and her family in AZ for 3 weeks) I will get to spend time with my grandchildren, ages 1 & 3. I am sooooo looking forward to this. Brats(LOL) that they are I start going through withdrawls if I don't see them for a couple of months. I love them so dearly and have the greatest time with them. This time I will be able to keep up with them. I will also get to spend alot of time with my parent. I am blessed to still have them both. The only down side is that DH is not coming with me. I will miss him but ...... emoticon
