Sep 2, 2013 Severe Paranoia X3

Tuesday, September 03, 2013

My paranoia (Psychosis) is getting worse and worse. Only sleep cures, even just a little nap, The delusions are so real - can't tell real from unreal, truth from lie. Don't know what to do.

- Put on belt of truth. Ephesians 6:14

It usually starts with 1 thought like....someone/see/look/think about me.. no basis in truth but who cares, doesn't make sense....
Then other thoughts come and I can't tell reality from delusion like...tito/death, ambulance/tito, irma/here,...puppies/drown, etc.

- Put on helmet of salvation. Ephesians 6:17

Made page private again. (public - 1 wk ago):

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty in God for pulling down of strongholds, casting down arguements and every high thingthay exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ 2 Cot 10:3-6

  


Carbs Necessary

Sunday, September 01, 2013

I basically follow SP's nutrition goals and eat a healthy 50% carbs/30% protien/20% Fat ratio with 75 - 100 grams protein per day. But I must not neglect the carbs, even fast burning carbs for energy to fuel my workouts. Carbs stored in the muscles and liver fuel workouts, but I also find I need a snack prior to working out. Will begin eating a banana 15-30 minutes prior to a workout.

    Sounds like a good idea since bananas also give you potassium, which sometimes is hard to get in the American diet.

Learn to Love Exercise

Wednesday, August 28, 2013

I learned to love exercise during the BLC22. It started with midnight workouts and a workout buddy. At the beginning, I hated it and wasn't consistent. I joined the Official 10-Minute Exercise Streak Challenge and began doing 20 minute workouts, 10 minutes ST videos and 10 minutes SP Cardio Blast DVD. As the days went by, I kept my streak alive with these short workouts. I had found my motivation to exercise. I tried the 80's Aerobic workout on the DVD and fell in love. Memories of days gone by flooded my mind.I was truly having fun now. I started working with greater intensity as I found something I enjoyed. Then I began adding minutes slowly and doubled the time I worked out. This week I'm doing 40 minute workouts and next week i plan on increasing it to 60, Where will I go from there? The sky's the limit!

My advice: Find a time you enjoy working out. Start small and start a streak. Find a workout buddy. And find something you enjoy!

    Isn't it amazing? I'm amazed how at my age I have learned , dare I say, to love my fitness classes. It's so key to find what motivates you such, such as type of fitness and time of day. Keep up the fabulous work.

    great words...& yep know what ya mean about finding what you can love.
the music on the Richard Simmons work out DVD's is memory land for me..& I just feel better while doing his work out to music of my youth.

then I got a Country line dancing DVD...I used to love to TwoStep..
when in OK & TX it seemed there was a dance place on every corner & country was the music of the day..I had a partner that was super good & we could close the place down. Those days are gone but the music brings them back..

Sweet memories of days gone by!

Got to dash off to work..but enjoyed your blog very much!

Ta 4 now... emoticon

Midnight Workout

Thursday, August 22, 2013

I've been working out at midnight the last couple of weeks and I'm on an daily exercise streak. Today made day 12. emoticon My sleep time varies. I prefer to sleep in the mornings between 0600 and 3 pm. Wednesday, I got up at 0300 am and napped from 9 pm to 1130 pm, so basically today was an early morning workout for me. That works best. I had to delay my cardio as my DH was sleeping and I didn't want to be stomping around to my cardio DVD and wake him up. The delay only gave me an opportunity to try and talk myself out of continuing my workout. With the help of my husband and his encouragement when he got up at 3 am, i was able to push through and do 30 minutes of aerobic dance. Thanks DH!

    That is great. I am a night shift nurse, so that would work for me! That is one reason that I joined Anytime fitness so that I could go anytime! I work 7P-7A so have been trying to work out before coming to work :)

    One time when I was training for a marathon with a group of friends - we were scheduling our 20 miler. Previously we'd done 18 miles and left out about 4a.m. My suggestion was we should start at 9 p.m. and we'd finish about 3 a.m. Then we could go home and go to bed. I was overruled - we started at 3:30 a.m. - I basically didn't sleep that night. No we're not the fastest - but we're the most DETERMINED.

    I sleep poorly at night and have been thinking about changing my sleeping times. I like your blog because it has given me some ideas. emoticon

P.S. When you write comments to your friends right on your blog here, they may not know it since SP has not set up notices back to us. I wanted to tell you since you wrote some nice comments to your friends. emoticon

7 Things That Are More Fun or Easier Now that I'm Healthier

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

1. Walking. When I first came to SparkPeople, I weighed 199 and was only able to walk a short distance without back pain. I stopped often, every 5 minutes to stretch my back just trying to get 15 minutes of walking in, Now, I'm able to complete a 5K without stopping at all in 50 minutes and have even begun incorporated jogging intervals. I love my morning walks/jogs in the fall and winter.

2. Sleeping. I had terrible insomnia when I first got here, unable to go to sleep for hours each night. I took the Official Better Sleep Challenge and now sleep at least 7 hours pretty consistently, falling asleep within minutes of hitting the pillow.

3. Just being out of bed. When I first got here, I laid in bed all day and night watching movies. Now, I'm active and out of bed. Except for my planned fitness, I'm still pretty sedentary, sitting at my computer all day but I no longer find it necessary to stay in bed.

4. Grocery Shopping. I love the produce section and the wide array of colors, textures, and tastes of the fruits and veggies (freggies). Before, I shopped in the aisles, buying junk food and highly proceessed foods.

5. Cooking by scratch. I love to cook by scratch now. I make SparkRecipes often. It used to be high calorie, high sodium, and high fat dinners as convenient as I could find frozen included.

6. Walk the puppies. This is way fun! My little chihuahuas are my walking buddies. They run by themselves trying to keep up with me. Poor puppies never got any exercise because I didn't.

7. Exercising, I remember getting a Special K workout video and couldn't get past the warm up without being out of breath and hurting. I ended up giving it away. This morning I worked out 47 minutes straight!

My life has gotten easier and more fun since becoming healthy and I know I'll have more ways the healthier I become!
