An Accomplishment and A New Experience

Friday, January 25, 2013

Accomplishment:
I finished the 4 week Official Tame Your Sweet Tooth Challenge here on SP and got my trophy. I do feel really good about my 2 weeks of cutting back especially on the artificial sweetener I was overusing, and then two weeks of abstinence from intense sweets, resetting my sweet threshold. I'm delighted that now I detect sweetness in almonds and bananas and things that didn't taste sweet to me before. Black coffee and plain tea taste okay to me now. I'm not sure my cravings have gone away, though. Seems like they've just changed. Now I'm craving salty crackers, but I know the more I resist, the more I'll be able to resist!

New Exercise Experience:
Today when I got to the Y, Gwen and I saw Cyndi water jogging. I had been threatening to join her one day, so I did!! We water jogged 50 minutes together - I think she'd already done 30 minutes or more before I got there. I have read in the Galloway running literature that water jogging is the only cross training you can do that actually improves your running form. So I was glad to have an experienced water jogger show me the ropes. To end my workout I swam 7 twenty five yard laps: 4 breaststroke, 2 backstroke, and 1 freestyle. It all felt great!!

A Touch of Trepidation

Thursday, January 24, 2013

My second personal training session is set for Wednesday the 30th. You may remember that my trainer had a family emergency and missed this second appointment a couple weeks ago. Then, about the time he was available, the dog and I collided and I had a week of a sore knee. Although I didn't cut out cardio, I did cut back, and I quit strength training on my legs for about 10 days. So, now he's back and I'm well and we'll try again.

I had a good strength training session on my own yesterday and awoke with just the right amount of soreness where I knew I had done a good workout, but the soreness wouldn't keep me from doing anything today. I swear my core felt noticeably tighter. I was really up for more strength training today, but I did what I'm suppose to and waited. I know the days in between the strength training sessions are really when your strength improves.

I can't wait for the challenge of my PT session and I'm approaching it with full force. Definitely don't want to postpone it again. I have just a touch of trepidation, though. I'm running my next 5K, the Rotary Twilight 5K, at 7pm on Friday, Feb. 1st, just two days after the PT session. So I'm hoping I'm not too sore to run. Oh, heck, I'll run sore if I have to. We'll see.

When I Don't Have Much to Say Should I Blog Anyway??

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Delighted that I had 2 delicious meals with my friend yesterday and still weighed 127.8 this morning! So I'm down several pounds over the last couple months.

It has been over a year since I was truly trying to maintain, that is, not lose or gain. There were months I didn't actively try to lose, especially when my focus was on building endurance to run the half marathon. But now I'm just 1.8 pounds til I'm back to my happy weight again. I'm thinking, though, I should probably lose two more just to have a cushion. Might take me 4-8 weeks, but probably would be worth it. Losing it slowly helps me avoid binging and helps me get into place the behaviors I need to maintain. We'll see how it goes. I'm not 100% certain that 126 really is a maintainable weight for me. (Judith Beck PhD of Beck Diet Solution writes about achievable vs. maintainable weight.) I know it is achievable because I did it in 2011. I won't know if is is maintainable or not unless I try.

I walked for a half hour early this morning and then ran and walked for 1.5 hours this morning at the gym. I accidentally hit the stop button on the treadmill twice and lost my data, so don't know exactly how far I went. I am not going to call myself a klutz, but if someone else did, I wouldn't dispute it -- and I wouldn't feel bad, either. I could not stand being a fat klutz, but being a slender klutz is okay with me. Go figure. I did some good strength training and tried a new machine, too. Okay. How about a strong slender klutz??

Enough for now. Perhaps I should wait to write again when I have something more significant to say! (Not promising.)

    I rather be a thin klutz myself. I have bruises on my arms and legs. I got some of them moving furniture Sunday. I got more yesterday when carrying groceries in the cold. I carried some of the bags on my arm since my gloves were to think for me to grasp the bags in my hand. A huge brown, gray mark appeared on my arm about five to seven hours later. I'm going to need to make sure I take an empty backpack with me if I go shopping in the cold again. My boyfriend seeing the bruise tells me not to go shopping when it's less than 20 degrees out. I see his point. I nearly passed out at the bus depot after walking there from the store.

Acknowledged

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

This morning I was into my music and into my elliptical workout when suddenly I was aware of a round wrinkled face with bright white hair, mouth moving, in what I considered my personal space. I slipped the left earpiece out and he repeated, "Are you trying to commit suicide?"

I was stunned and uncertain. Then he smiled. I assured the frail man, who had to be 85 years old, that on the contrary, I was working to live a long, healthy life. In fact, I bragged, I'm a runner and this is an easy workout for me. Satisfied, he wandered off.

He came back, though, when I was finished to check out my workout statistics on the machine. I guess I should be honored. Acknowledgement comes in a lot of different forms.

Taming the Sweet Tooth

Monday, January 21, 2013

I'll be finishing up the 4 weeks of the official SparkPeople Taming Your Sweet Tooth Challenge in two more days. I am extremely glad I took on this challenge. I cut back my artificial sweetener use for a couple weeks and then I gave up all artificial and intense sweets - no Splenda/Sweet n Low/Equal/saccharine/Truvia; no syrup, diet or otherwise; no pudding; no cakes; no cookies; no desserts; no honey; no gum; no Tic Tacs/breath mints; no soda; no Crystal Light; no Lipton/Snapple tea. I'm drinking coffee, decaf, tea and herbal tea absolutely plain, instead of with the mountain of sweetener I used to use. It has now been 11 successful days. (Full disclosure: although I'd given up dried fruit, I had 23 raisins on my oatmeal the Saturday morning before I ran the 5K. I also had one Gu Chew 30 minutes before the race, just to make sure I had the energy to run. I'm not counting this race fueling as a sugar violation. I think I may have needed them.)

I've decided to complete two full weeks with no intense sweets. Then my goal will be to eat one dessert or less per month, preferably at a family birthday or holiday dinner. I will limit my artificial sweetener use to an average of 4 packets or equivalents (8 oz of artificially sweetened drink = one packet) per day. I believe I can live with these goals and be healthier and happier for it!

As I commented earlier, things I never thought of as sweet (carrots, peas, corn, tomatoes, almonds) all taste sweet to me now. My sweet threshold has decidedly been reset. Today even onions tasted sweet. I'm not kidding.

And once again I say gratefully, thanks SparkPeople!

Our bodies don't need them...nothing good about it. I am happy to admit that overall I don't eat sweets. Only on rare occaisions do I eat a piece of cake or cookie or something. You are so right that other foods really taste better when you aren't eating sugar.

    Fantastic accomplishment Marsha!! Its wonderful you can enjoy the natural sweetness of veggies! To me, nothing is sweeter then corn, picked right from the stock, as a kid, I would eat it raw. On a diet I was on once, they actually suggested I try something other than carrots all the time as they had a high sugar content!
I find it interesting you are going to allow the artificial sweeteners back in after working so diligently to avoid their use. Did you not feel better without them?
Here is to hoping you can enjoy more natural, and less artificial sweet things :)
Keep up the great work!

    you look fantastic. i like onions with bread. i had quinoa tonight, but had it with tuna and 1 tsp of low sodium chicken broth.

did some pink beans tonight. i make my own pizza dough.

really crisp and it does not stick to the pan. i am drinking more water, but i admit to one can of diet soda a day.

wish i could be like you. but i joined the Y challenge group.
so i am doing more exercise. did a walking 15 minute dvd also at home.

good luck with your journey.

    Carrots, tomatoes, almonds and onions as sweet: I can relate. Love 'em.
