it has been a very bad day,
Thursday, April 18, 2013
So, I just wanted to take a minute to say thanks to all those who posted on my last blog. "ADVICE FROM REAL WORKER OUTERS NEEDED"...If you havent read it, please feel free and leave me any advice or opinion you want.
Everyone really gave me positive feedback.
I am going to continue to lift weights and not little girly girl weights either.
Of course, I am not going to be dead lifting 200 pounds anytime soon, or probably ever.
But, I feel better about doing 10 lb dumbbells, since the 5 lbs just wasnt giving me the resistance i felt I needed anymore.
But exercise is exercise and what little bit I did today was no match for my appetite.
Seems I went wayyyyy over my calories, I dont really know why.
But, I did go to the walking track, only for 20 minutes, but little by little I am getting back to walking and my foot hasnt been bothering me too much.
I did feel a slight bit of discomfort about 15 minutes into my walk.
I am really looking forward to this foot being healed and my walks increasing to an hour and maybe more.
So, I had an ok day today...had Subway with my friend Amy and a great tan session, I loved sweating it out in the tanning bed.
Hope tomorrow is equally as good.
Thanks again for the comments on the last blog.

I got a little ticked off at a FB friend today after posting that I had done my squats using 10lb dumbbell in each hand...now, I am trying to include arm and upper arm workouts as well as some cardio and some strength training.
She suggested that for a woman I should only be using 3 to 5 lb weights, unless I want to bulk up big enough to move a refridgerator..
THIS PISSED ME OFF!!!
For one, maybe I do...and for two, this woman is all of five foot tall and maybe 120 lbs at best...
She might be right, I might be adding too much weight, Personally I dont think I am.
I need to increase muscle, calorie burn, whatever, I just need to get some exercise and do it in my own way.
If she had to comment, why not just say, thats good or way to go or whoopee or something...why try to correct someone and make me adhere to her style of workout????
What do you all think SP friends...?
Am I adding too much weight???
Should I stick to small dumbbells and not add more weight????
Believe me, I would have to work out at a much higher rate and much more intense to ever bulk up as she said...
I have a long long way to go to even have definetion in my muscles...
I guess I am just really ticked off cause I have all these other issues going on and for me to workout at all was fantastic, I was feeling so high and endorphins running wild and then kabam
someone stomped all over it and made me feel stupid like I am too dumb to know how hard and how far to push myself.
Other than this, I have had a good day.
I got up early, enjoyed my coffee while listening to the rain and trying to work on these tough decisons...
I took a good shower and the Vaseline cocoa radiant body spray moisturizer makes me smell so good and feel so silky soft.
Nah, I am along way from bulking up.
Thanks for reading my rant.

Feeling sick and a little like a failure. Even though my food tracker says I stayed within 100 calories of my range today.
I feel as though I ate way more than I should and am not really sure that my tracker is accurate or that I am sparking correctly.
I didnt get in a workout yet, maybe once I do I will feel a little better.
It has been and I expect it will be a stressful few days...the day I have dreaded for so long, amongst many lately, will be here in the next few days and I have alot of big decisions to make that I have been avoiding and putting off and hoping wouldnt actually take place.
But I am a woman torn with this decision and dont have any real guidance.
I could use my friends advice right now, but hes unable to give it.
Tomorrow is supposed to rain, right when I start to get able to walk again, rain rain rain sets in...but Thursday is supposed to be really hot and nice and I plan to take full advantage and get in an early morning walk.
I walk alone.

Hated that I was having such a good day only to come home to watch the news out of Boston.
But, I was having a good day.
I did something today that I havent done in 3 months...I tracked spark fitness points for WALKINGGGG!!!!
Yes...you did read it right!
I walked a full twenty minutes and I loved it...I was soooo happy to be back on MY track.
The track was a little on the slick side, and with the new shoes, the ones in my pic...I had to be a little more sure footed.
Maybe was extra cautious, since the last time I was there it was the day I broke my foot.
It is a little tender tonight, a little achy, but no real pain.
And I am not going to walk again before possibly Thursday and then only another 20 minutes.
But it sure did feel good while it lasted.
I dont want to over do it and I am going to follow doctors orders and go easy...
It felt good to see that view and put my earbuds in and walk...
Cannot wait til the day comes when this is no longer a big deal and walking is routine once again.
Aside from that, I went riding thru the park with my friend Amy and then she and I had a great lunch at Subway...double chicken chopped salad and a parfait.
Then I went back to her house and got 20 minutes of tanning.
I am quite the brown biscuit these days!!!!
I kept under my calories today, got my water in and still have some left over for my honey yogurt, orange and a cup of milk tonight.
I am making progress and I can really feel it for the first time in awhile.
I am letting the stress of my friend and other situations go.
It is time to focus on me, my health and my happiness.
And one other little side thing...I ordered a new pair of compression shorts for walking, since my two old pairs are now too loose and dont give me the hold I need....2 sizes smaller than the old ones!!!
Now, Hillbilly Days, our local heritage festival which raises money for the Shriners Childrens Hospitals, is coming up this week and I hadnt planned to go, due to the foot, but I am going to go and buy myself a new purse...and some tanning bed lotion...cause I want it and I feel like that will be a good treat for sticking to my calories all week and getting my workouts in and just because Im a girly girl and I like purty pocketbooks!!!
Prayers for Boston and the USA and for all my spark friends who read and comment and wishing everyone great weather and great health. sorry the pic isnt so good of me, but i was so jubliant to be on the walking track, i didnt have time to fix my hair and makeup!!!!
