one goal met, one goal to go

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

Today was a good day for me, even though I havent slept enough to live, and I am about to remedy that here in a few minutes.
I had a good walk this morning and have stayed right on track with food, etc.
And when I got on the scale today I had reached a goal.
Well, kind of a milestone really. I now can say, I weigh less today than I have in 2 years.
I still have a long way to go, but since May 24th, I have lost 32 pounds. I still have 17 days left to reach my goal of losing 10 lbs in Sept, and I have 4 pounds of that left to go.
I am going to make a goal for the rest of September to do toning and strength training in some form daily.
And on that note, I am going to hit the bed.

The pain in my foot has subsided enough that today I decided to try to walk, after coming home from my hair apt, crazy right...get all dolled up then get sweaty.
Well, it didnt happen anyway, there was a ceremony getting underway to honor 9/11 and veterans and so, I didnt want to be walking past.
So, maybe, hopefully tomorrow.
I really want to walk again soon.
Tonight I am so tired, I can hardly go....
Had only about 2 or 3 hours of sleep last night and got up at 7am.
So, I think a 10 oclock bedtime tonight sounds amazing.
Goodnight to all.

something is afoot!!!

Monday, September 10, 2012

My foot just really hurts all the time now. I am guessing its probably some form of arthritis or tendonitis.
I walked yesterday for nearly an hour, with the help of ace bandage and tape. But, not today. Had a dentist appt and then had some stuff to do but hoping tomorrow for sure.
I have a hair appointment and then Thursday I have an appointment with the Podiatrist, then Lynyrd Skynyrd tickets....busy week.
But today was good with food and calories and all.
Just no exercise.
I really really miss walking every morning. I just wish I knew why my foot decided now was the time to blow out on me.
I had set a goal to lose 10 lbs by my birthday, the last day of this month and right now, I am about 7 pounds away.
But cant seem to get the scale to budge and just havent had the heart to weigh this week.
So, heres to aleve and ice.

    Where does it hurt?
The reason I ask is i had plantar faciitis last year and it is very painful and it is the tissue under your instep getting inflamed, hamstring stretching and nurofen helped. But it took a while to calm down.

So I thought my luck was changing, that old bad penny's bad luck had run out.
I got my window replaced in my car today, not in time to go for my walk, but theres always tomorrow.
And I got a check in the mail, woo hoo, well for 26 bucks...but hey, thats 26 bucks I didnt have before.
And I found my lost ace bandage, hiding deep under the front seat of my car, probably pulled under there by the seat when I moved it up to vacuum out all the broken glass.
But the day wasnt all good.
I went over my calories by like 300....and that has nothing to do with luck, but rather bad bad choices.
Like eating a hamburger bun, instead of just having the patty...and adding a slice of cheese and a tablespoon of mayo...not light mayo.
And maybe it had to do with going back for a second patty...this time sans bun, cheese or mayo.
So, all that added to my calorie count.
And here I was yesterday blogging about how I was really going to cut back on calories this week.
Well, the only reassurance I can give myself is that, I have eaten much more and still lost weight in the past.
I really just need to amp it up this week.
So, tonight I am going to be doing my weights and bike....while watching Big Brother.
And I am just hoping this heavy rain we have had today goes on past us so that I might walk tomorrow.
I use the word Might, because as of right now I am still unsure about my foot.
It does feel better with the bandage on, but not sure how I will be on the track.
I have tape and will just have to go and make a go of it and see.
Other than that, I really seriously need a haircut, I know its too soon to make jokes, but remember the old Phyllis Diller jokes about her hair?
That is the way I am feeling today, the humidity and the electricity in the air from the storms in the area and I look like the love child of Phyllis Diller and Phil Spector in his wig.
I need to get me some Dapper Dan hair pomade.
And since its on my mind...I added this one to my playlist for walking.

    hey 300 calories that would be considered fantastic for some people, tomorrow is another day and more choices so one choice at a time and you will get there.

i found an unlucky penny.

Tuesday, September 04, 2012

So I kinda screwed up tonight. I went back for a second, although, small helping of spagetti and meatsauce.
Why did I do that? Well, for one I was just hungry. But, I could have chosen a piece of fruit, or something else.
I dont know.
I have only walked twice this week...and only about half as long as I normally do. My left foot is now killing me. The right one healed so I guess the left felt LEFT out...wawawa...
This is a totally different kind of pain. This is right in the bottom of the heel, feels almost like bone on bone when I take a step.
Really ticks me off that I finally decide to get in shape and walk and now my feet keep rebelling against me.
Well, anyway, I have had a most problematic day. First I had to call and get my phone carrier to change my phone voicemail back to empty and start over, cause apparently I forgot my pin, even though I didnt, and why do I need a pin for my voicemail??? Anyone? Is there a way to just turn that off? But got it fixed and am totally UNhappy with my recorded greeting, but went on, I dont get that many voicemails anyway.

Then only got about 40 minutes on the track. Before the foot just couldnt handle more.
So, then home, to put my new ace bandage on....only problem is, after about an hour of searching every room in the house, its no where to be found.
I just bought that about 2 weeks ago when my other foot began to hurt....I dont know where it is.
So, have the glassman coming tomorrow between 8am and 5pm to change the glass and knowing the run of luck I have had lately, he will probably show up at 4:50pm.
I really need to go to Lowes and pay my bill and I really need to go to Wally and get a new foot bandage and some nail polish remover, etc....
So many things I need to do.
Like walk and stop going back for second helpings of food I shouldnt have had in the first place.
Really have got to amp it up this week. I mean really!! So focusing on toning and weights tomorrow.
And really cutting back the calories....really!!

    That sharp heel pain you're having could be plantar fasciitis. Orthopedic inserts in your shoes and sometimes, special exercises can help, I know from experience. It's such a miserable feeling, if that's what you've got :(

    Wow, you really have had a rough day, haven't you? I've had days like that myself.

I did pretty good with everything today, except I ate more chili this evening than I should have, and I need to drink a little more water before calling it a day. emoticon
