The scale started moving again. Thank goodness to my note taking and recording in a journal I was able to figure out how to make it move. Its a history making discovery for me !!! To figure out why my weight loss had slowed down and how to make it move again. I am down 13.4 pounds, something that is shocking to me as weight doesn't come off easily for me.
The nutrition page has been an excellent tool to teach me portion size and calorie count. I never had a clue before that I was over eating. I though I was eating a healthy diet. It taught me to find lower calorie substitutions. I figured since I was a vegetarian that I was eating a healthy diet and didn't have to worry. Sigh. What a learning journey. Reading spark articles taught me that foods I though were healthy alternatives were not necessarily so. Last night I invested in some nutriton books to help me on my journey.
On 11-11-10 my workout was walking on the beautiful walking trail in town and a Leslie Sampson DVD using zumba shakers to work out my arms. My goal is to get them stronger to use my pink kettlebells for a longer period of time. My total Steps is 14,783. 144 moderate activity, 102 vigorous, 3219 calories burned.
Yesterday my husband and I went on a hike in the mountains enjoying the beautiful fall colors. We came across a hidden treasure off on a dirt road, deep in the Shasta Trinity forest. The place we discovered is an incredibly beautifly secluded place.
We took photos of our journey, awed by the beauty of the emerald colored moss growing on the rocks and trees. The sunlight was filtered through the tree branches making it look even lovier as it enhanced the colors of the moss. It looked like faeries came along and covered everything in this beautifully living moss. There were a few mushroom rings under the trees, the sound of a waterfall in the near distance, beautiful maidenhair ferns, the fall colors, birds singing. It looked so magical and peaceful. We spent time there taking photos and enjoying the beauty of nature. I walked to a waterfall and found some beautiful pools of water just perfect for dipping in had it been summer.
My total steps yesterday was 6705. I went to bed early due to severe pain and fatigue not controlled by medication. 2630 calories burned, 121 moderate activity, 8 vigorous.
