So Im scrolling along, doing my SP thang, when I notice something that made my head turn around, like the girl on the exorcist....my weight on my tracker, was a full 10 lbs higher than my actual weight!!
WHAT THE H E DOUBLE HOCKEY STICKS IS UP WITH THAT????
So, I went in and changed it to my actual weight. I know full well that the last time I weighed I put the right weight.
I am unsure how that happened, but it made me pretty ticked off, I hadnt noticed it in over a week since my last weigh in, this isnt the first time SP has gotten my weight ticker messed up, this is one reason I do not share my tickers!!!!
I had lost about 60 lbs and it had me having lost less, its just wrong, wrong I tell you!!!!!
Work so hard and every pound lost is a victory and then to have it set 10 lbs higher than you actually are.
Oh well, just gotta keep a closer eye on my trackers and such I guess.
So, today its nice and cool out not too hot, a little sun, rain is in the forecast but I am hoping it holds out at least til after 9pm tonight, we are supposed to go to the drag races, first time I have been in forever ever and I am looking forward to it, being outside and not in some dumb movie theater or store.
Another little bit of good things to look forward to, my son is going to be coaching little league football along with his best friend and old football buddy and I am lookng forward to going to their games, I miss going to football games, my son played from 5th grade thru high school and I loved it.
Got in a great long walk Thursday night, but sadly skipped yesterday, hoping to maybe squeeze in a late evening walk before heading on to the racetrack, weather permitting.
And tomorrow is grilling out day, steaks and mushrooms and corn on the cob, yummmmmy, now, wait, about that weight tracker....I might need to change it again, ohhhhh boy!!!!
Have a great weekend to everyone.

lol lol lol
that is what i was doing after i was searching online for foods both high in fiber and vitamin d...
first answer, low on vitamin d, get lots of sunlight!!!
i dont think i have seen any here in about a week, its been hotter than hades, but just dry over cast steamy humid heat.
no sun. and, im inside all day at least 4 days a week here when i work, so its not like i can go out and lay in the sun, maybe i can walk out on the deck for 10 minutes or so. i get what i can i guess.
so, i am still trying to tweak my diet so that i can get in my 25 of fiber
and my 120 of calcium, or more, and my 100 of vitamin d...and still stay within calorie range.
so far, lots of apples, which are still high in sugar and carbs, so, is it better to go over carbs or under other nutrients?
i pick low carbs, i can and am still taking high doses of vitamin d and fiber in the form of tablet or powder.
last vitamin d check was june, and it was 52
i will have it checked again in sept when i return to the doc....
so, i guess for now, i stick with lower carbs and keep taking supplements.
i have got to cut back on my dairy, i had really drastically increased it when i first broke my foot and in spite of taking 50,000 iu once a week and 5,000 iu daily of vitamin d
i still increased my calcium in the form of food.
so now is the time to get back, i had to go down the stairs to my car today, and these are pretty steep stairs, and coming back up, i was out of breath, first time that has happened to me in awhile.
and this is a three story house, so its up and down thru the day.
which is good, i need the added steps and cardio.
but i have noticed getting out of breath more easily...which means, its time to get back to more intense workouts, enough puttying around!!!
i have to find the time and the solitude...there is a gazelle and an eliptical here at work, so while my charges are sleeping, i am going to add what i can, even if its only a few minutes and up and down the stairs as much as i can handle.
you do what you can do right!!!
so everyone have a good day.

and so it begins!!! I knew having my son move back in was going to be stressful, at best.
But now hes asking to use my car!!!!
He went out to work on his and sprayed it with water for some reason unknown, and now it wont start.
To work, wouldnt be so bad, as its only about 5 miles away.
and he doesnt have to be there til 11pm, but hes wanting to take it to one of his NA meetings.
And while I am all for him going to his meetings., it is over 25 miles one way, and back, then running here and there.
All I need is Honey getting mad at me over letting my son use my car.
It has been a point of contention in this house for a decade now!!!
And I am just thinking ahead, this is the only car we have that is even driveable to get groceries, for me to get to work, go walking, doing my errands, etc.
I am sick of it, right now an anger is building up inside me that I want to punch a punching bag and there are none available!!!
I am sick of it!!!!
If I say no, its well he missed his meeting, and if I say yes, its well, I have to listen to Honey go on and on about how hes a grown man, let him grow up, what does he do with all of his money, etc.
I am sick of being put in the middle and of having my home invaded and my automobile hijacked.
i REALLY NEED TO GO WALKING!!!

I really thought I was coming down with "something"...I was unsure just what they might be.
I had been feeling very run down, fatigued to the point of dozing off on the couch, which I never do.
Aching joints and muscles, headache, and woke up coughing up phlegmn.
I felt this strange overall feeling, like I just needed to stretch and shake and couldnt keep still, like I was jittery.
Was sure it was flu.
I laid back down at 5 am this morning and slept til 9am, uninterrupted and probably would have slept more and longer had my son not woke me when he got up to get ready for work.
I actually feel alot better right now.
Not as tired or achy, headache has eased off and no coughing.
It must have been the 12 hour flu, lol.
But its so so sooooo hot here. We are under a heat advisory and it doesnt look like walking is going to happen for me anytime soon,
I squeeze it in where I can and hope I can in the morning, super early, like daybreak early.
I sure hope whatever had me feeling so bad is gone,
Sons girlfriend has been here for 2 days and has been a big help, cleaning, dishes and laundry, lol, feels good to be a lady of leisure,
even though I miss having my house all to myself.

I am feeling very very let down and discouraged this morning. I am hurting in my left hip so bad and I dont know what is causing it, but, I know I didnt feel like walking this morning.
Where that pain came from, out of no where, I have no idea.
Unless its from getting up and down so much....see, this job I took on, or whatever its called, is sitting with two ladies, one has downs syndrome and the other is bedridden.
The younger woman, with ds, is ok, she can fix her own meals mostly, she does need help reaching the overhead microwave...but for the most part, she is ok to fend for herself.
But the elderly lady, has to have everything brought to her, and she needs help getting up and down to the potty chair, but for now, she is still able to do that. I expect soon she wont be able to, as the nurse came yesterday and said shes only getting worse and her dementia is progressing.
So, its just alot of running up and down the hallway, most of the time, she doesnt really want anything.
She just calls out all day, bring me coffee, bring me a phone, come in here honey....when I go in to check on her, mostly shes half asleep and only calling out in her mind...but sometimes shes calling out cause she really needs help and I have to run and check on her.
So, that is the JOB, just alot of running and sitting down, standing up, sitting down....has to be where the hip pain came in, cause before, I was ok.
I dont honestly know how long this job is going to last for me...I am going to really try to tough it out.
I havent lost a pound this week, despite being a mexican jumping bean!!!!
And so, my body is rebelling against me...yesterday I was all happy that I was able to squeeze in a walk in the morning, and then after about 40 minutes, my foot really began to ache and pains radiating up my hip.
What can I do...I have decided to take my dumbbells and stretch bands to work with me and squeeze in some upper body workouts in between running...they have a gazelle and an eliptical machine...I really am going to need the upper body strength.
But my biggest disappointment came this morning when I stepped on the scale, to see that not an ounce was lost.
I have no idea what else I can do to tweek things.
I am walking as much as I can, which lately isnt alot, but when I do, I deal with the foot pain...I have cut bread out this whole week, and I have been going for lean proteins and yogurt all week...what is going on with me??
Why am I still stuck in this bog of zero weight loss?????
someone help me???
I even cut my calories again on my nutrition page to see if that helps me stay in line, but I am eating so little now I dont know what else to cut out.
I sit here preplexed about the whole thing, because I was losing weight like crazy before this stupid foot decided to take a break, literally a break!!!
Will I ever lose this 84 pounds I want to lose??? will I ever lose the 14 lbs I need to lose to get back to where I was...will I ever even lose one more pound???
