i guess i should eat/concert pics

Saturday, September 15, 2012

I know that eating too few calories can cause a set back, our bodies will begin to rebel and store fat.
But, I cant seem to help it, the last week or so, I just dont feel like eating. Some of it has been excitement, from hanging out with a really great friend and just enjoying being out and talking and laughing.
Part of it has been from excitement building up to the concert I attended, and maybe just a little saving up for alcohol consumption....and I did very much consume.
And part of it, I know the biggest part is stress and worry.
I am just really having a hard time dealing with this move. Honey knows this and we just seem to butt heads, whenever I try to voice my concerns, etc, he takes it as an assault and wants to become defensive and argue.
I am finished arguing. I really just dont know what my next move is going to be, either choice I make is going to be a big big change.
I dont know if I am ready for either, or.
But I am going to try to get back to the walking track every morning this week, no rain or zombie attacks will stop me.
I havent walked since Thursday, and I go to the ortho specialist on Tuesday to get fitted for my insert.
My foot does feel a little better today....I just need to purge my body of some toxins, both from the alcohol, and stress and just get a good sweat going.
I am also, once honey goes back to work dayshift on Monday, begin doing my tummy toning that is long past due.
This is the ugly side effect of weight loss that no one shows in the fitness magazines or even on the Bloser....
the droopy sagging of the tummy....I have only lost 32 pounds, and I can really already begin to see it, I personally havent noticed much else.
My clothes are somewhat looser, and I really havent even seen any significant inch loss anywhere except maybe my hips....I have had a few people begin to tell me how I have lost SO MUCH weight, HA!!!
Well, it does make me feel good, but heck I know I have a lot more to lose and alot harder work outs to get some toning done.
Here are some pics from the concert.... Me and my best friend for life, Pam....
my son and his date.... refreshing refreshments... the band Lynyrd Skynyrd...

    I saw Skynard in 2000 and something with my Mom and Dad - it was an awesome concert.

I am so glad you had a good time!

    Val, when you are not feeling too hungry why not try to eat soup at least. YOu can even make your own home made soup adding lots of vitamin rich veggies and lean meat such as chicken or turkey.

It sounds like you are dealing with a lot of stress right now but when you get back to walking, you can let go of all the stress. This is the time when I de-stress and just listen to my Ipod music as I power ahead.

You can do it know you can . All the best on this healthy journey. You have come a long way already losing 36 pounds. That's awesome! Keep up the great work.

gimme three steps!!

Friday, September 14, 2012

So, I went to the podiatrist the other day and he said I have plantar fascilitis...I guess I spelled it right, and he said mine was pretty bad, and that I was beginning to develop some problems in my calf due to the pulling.
So, I go back next week to have some sort of special mold made to get an ortho insert for my foot.
He didnt tell me not to walk and in fact I walked just that morning before going.
But, I do still have pain and am taking aleve.
So, I didnt walk today.
I went to the Lynyrd Skynyrd concert last night and had a blast, I dont know if I even checked in yesterday or not.
But, I know I sure didnt count the 8, or 9 beers I drank last night...or the two little debbie oatmeal cream pies I ate in a drunken midnight hunger prowl.
But its all good, once a year, or twice for a drunken bender isnt too bad.
I am so hoarse I can barely talk, from woooo hooooing and shouting, but mostly from laughing with my best friend and boy did we have so much fun.
I will put a pic on tomorrow.
I still havent been sleeping 4 days, I can say I have averaged about 2 to 3 hours per night.
So, so so tired today, I lay down around 2pm and still nothing...again at 930pm, and nothing.
I just have alot surging thru my mind...this upcoming and oh so dreaded and regreted move...I would rather not do it, but what choice do I have???
I guess I am searching my mind and heart for that answer.
And just dealing with emotions and fears and so on....maybe I will be able to sleep, if my body doesnt just kill over from stress and lack of sleep first.
So, heres to one more try!!!

    Did he tell you to get new shoes? I had that & the first thing my dt told me was to get a 1/2 size bigger shoes because our feet never stop growing & we don't seem to check shoes sizes as we get old. Then he said I needed new shoes because the old ones have adapted to my problem. Got new shoes in bigger sizes & problem stopped.
Good luck!

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.
