Pink Kettlebell on it's Way !!!

Saturday, November 13, 2010



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.

Rescued by my HERO !!!

Thursday, November 11, 2010



Yesterday was wonderful !!! I felt so good, especially after my nap. It was a pain free day, I had more energy, and clearer thoughts. The MS gave me a break for a bit.

My husband and I went on a walk by the creek listening to the gurgle of the water and enjoying the fall colors. My pace was brisk, my balance was better than normal, I felt so happy and free from Multiple sclerosis. At the end of our walk is a very steep slop that goes in to our backyard. I climbed it faster than I have in two years and did the happy dance with my cane in my hands with a great big grin on my face. Then once inside I sat down.

Nothing was the same after that. The small moment of JOY faded away as it hit again. I once again lost my strength and needed help to rise out of the recliner. In the shower I was so weak I had to sit on the shower chair. I couldn't get up without help from my husband. I never had to ask for help out of the shower before. Its so discouraging. Yet that brief fleeting moment when I could move my legs like a normal person was so fun, it felt like a weight had been lifted from my body to feel that good.

My total steps yesterday 13,257.
Calorie burn 3104.
155 moderate activity
38 vigorous.

I completed powerfit back, biceps, and thighs dvd. I couldn't get off the floor when I was done exercising, so my hero rescued me.

5 min. of kettlebell. I couldn't do anymore. I tried doing it first. The 4 lb. kettlebell is too heavy for me, so I will have to find something lighter to use.

By the way, don't worry too much about the KB. When I first tried Kettlenetics, I was winded after 10 minutes. I like KBs though and even took one to show my parents some of the exercises. The KB I had was too heavy for my mom, but she was able to do some of the exercises (like halos) herself with a lightweight dumbbell. So, maybe that would help? Just a thought. Have a good night!

    You must've felt like Cindarella at the ball before the coach turned back into a pumpkin. How wonderful that you embrace those days, even if they are few and far between.

If the 4 lb kettlebell feels like too much for you right now, why don't you try the same exercises with a 2 lb dumbbell?

My best wishes to you and your "HERO".

New Kittens !!!

Wednesday, November 10, 2010



Aren't they cute ???

Yesterday I felt weak, tired, brain dead, having intense pain from the MS. I resorted to taking a prescription of Neurotin daily that I hate because it makes me feel loopy, tired, weaker, and sleepy. Its just the pain is so out of control that I tear up at unexpected instances from the pain. It sneaks up silently and burns so intensely that all I can do is not move frozen, grabbing my leg, with tears in my eyes.

The workout I completed was Powerfit and a few min. of leslie sampson. I continued to march in place off and on building up steps and my strength. Tomorrow I will report on a shocking surprise !!!

My total Steps 8038.
143 moderate activity.
15 vigorous.
2604 cal. burned.

Help I've fallen and Can't get Up !!!

Tuesday, November 09, 2010



My workout yesterday was extra challenging. My energy has been going up and down as my body continues to battle the flare and heal. A nap was required so I could muster up the energy to workout. LOL. A nap needed before I workout??? Doesn't seem to make sense, but it worked.

I was extra weak yesterday making the workout harder. My husband still has to help me out of the chair. I struggle to lift a dinner plate full of food, even empty. I was able to lift my leg into the car by myself !!! A major accomplishment for me. The neuropathy is driving me crazy with fusteration, keeping me awake tonight when I desperately need sleep.

I did Powerfit by Stephanie Hucklebee Cardio DVD. Thank goodness there wasn't any floor work as I wouldn't of been able to get up without help. No I didn't fall, but any of you who have loved ones at home take a walkie talkie with you or cell phone if you workout in a room by yourself in case you can't get up. Since my husband came up with this plan he has always hears me when I need his help.

I managed to get 10,000 steps in by sparking off and on. My legs felt like lead, very heavy today and my balance was worse. When I worked out, I used the barre my husband mounted for balance. Thanks Honey !!!

I will update my totals later in the morning when I have access to my gowear fit watch. Its in the bedroom with my sleeping husband.

    This might sound crazy, but I have a baby monitor that I've used in the room where I exercise. I bought it when my parents were ill, and never got rid of it. And if I or my roommate are sick, we move it into the "sick room". But, I make sure that I have a phone nearby if I'm exercising when I'm at home alone.

Is It time to Stop ?

Monday, November 08, 2010



I felt hurt when others question my honesty and integrity in reporting my exercise. My tender heart is bruised easily and my feelings hurt. I never have been tough like others or developed a thick skin. There is no gain from me to write about my changes in weight loss, health issues, exercise completed. I don't care about the number of points I earn or the public acknowledgement. I debated last night if I should make my journal private - feeling sadness and pain that I was being questioned by others. There is a saying mean people suck. Yay they do, maybe one day they will know how there words impact others and think before saying mean things and behave in a mean fashion.

My logic for blogging is to keep me accountable and on track, focused and dedicated to doing what I have wanted to do for a long time but lacked in consistency. Personally it does me no good to make up any event or to write about things that I haven't done as implied.

I blog for me, for no one else. Its selfish I admit, but no one cares other than me what my outcomes are. Only I desire to loose weight, improve my health, regain lost strength, develop life-long healthful habits, and look good.

Yesterday the same health issues challenged me. I napped as needed and got up and kept on determined to get my exercise in.

So today I continue on writing another page in my blog. Yesterday's workout was Powerfit Legs and Shoulders and Gorgeous Core lean, long, and strong with classic abwork. I marched in place and walked to accumulate steps.

My total Steps is 17,295.

My weight has gone down from 188.6 on 9-9-10 to 177.0 as of today. Since my first measurement I have lost 9.5 inches. My weight was stuck at all last month, even gaining a bit of weight. This month I am down 3 pounds.

The difference has been in being able to read my notes as to what was working in the beginning and going back to those activities, tracking my food intake, and increasing the number of steps I take. The steps are achieved in mini-sparks. When I first started before spark I could barely walk. It still is hard to walk but I keep at it. I never know from day to day if I will be able to walk or get out of the chair myself. Today I needed help getting up. It doesn't stop me. I can still walk inside safely adding steps whether its watching tv or doing a leslie sampson dvd.

Yesterday my husband mounted up a ballet barre on the wall so I can do barre exercises.

    I just looked at the comment in question, and I agree w/Cynthia47. I don't think he was meaning to question the numbers you post, I think he was in awe because that number would be impossible for him at this time. Everything else in his post was positive and encouraging. Please take another look with fresh eyes, and maybe have hubby take a look to see what he thinks. I really think the poster was complimenting you, but I know how it is when you put your heart and soul into something and it feels like someone is questioning your efforts and your integrity. I'm going to say it as nicely as possible...I think you might have misunderstood his intentions...please go back and look at the rest of his comment. It's ok if you misunderstood, I've definitely done that before.

    It is beyond me why anyone on here would say anything disparaging or discouraging to someone else. After all, I thought the whole point of being on here was to be in a SAFE place where you could experience this journey with others.

Oh well...as many other people have said, try not to let it get you down. I know it would be hard for me to have a thick skin if I were in your shoes. And if people had the time you have during the day, they might be able to accomplish what you do. I'm at home all day with our daughter, and if I weren't doing other things in the house and taking care of her, I might be able to do what you do. Don't let haters detract from your sense of accomplishment. I for one am encouraged and inspired by all that you post on here. If you feel you need to make your journal private, then by all means, please do what is best for you and what you feel comfortable with. If the actual number of steps and workout accomplishments are in question, maybe you can track them on here privately and still blog about your experiences doing those things. You have to take care of yourself mentally and emotionally just like you are physically. emoticon emoticon emoticon

When I first joined here I had a few people write very mean things to me when I asked questions. They were quite disparaging about what I was eating and my goals. Well now that I'm down almost 40 pounds I look back and think thank GOD I didn't let them derail me!

If it makes any difference to you, I write all of my goals each week (updated daily) on the Kettlebells Team blog. I love doing it for the same reasons you do -- it keeps me motivated and accountable. I'd love to have others join me on that thread. It says "personal goals" --

There is nothing to gain by 'cheating' - the only person you'd be cheating is yourself so why would you bother? The answer is simple - like me (and the vast majority of Sparkers on site) you wouldn't.

Congrats on all your hard work - that's fantastic and keep up the super work.

The same with a baby doing something funny on there. It's amazing that that's the way it is, but all you can do is ignore that stuff.

Look how some of the people in public life are talked about. I may not agree with some of them, but I don't hate them. How could I when I don't really know them?

Shouldnt they be minding their own workouts and health plan?

    Don't let others take you from doing what you need to do to accomplish your goal. Keep working and you will achieve your goal. emoticon

    You're right -- mean people do indeed suck! I find it incredible that there are people on Spark People who are making comments that make others feel badly about what they are doing (or not doing). You are not the first person I've read about that has had this problem.

If you happen to be one of those people who find it appropriate to make negative comments to other Spark People, and are reading this comment, I have one word for you: LEAVE. That's right, get the heck off this site. It was meant to inspire and encourage others. If you don't understand that, you don't belong here.

And, back to TIME2BLOOM4ME -- Please please please don't let a few rotten apples spoil your Spark People experience!!! There are plenty of people on this site who want to encourage others, and I hope you've far more positive experiences than negative ones. I really encourage you to brush off the negative comments to those "meanies" and keep on truckin!!!
