long weekend looming

Thursday, February 17, 2011

Here in Alberta, Monday is Family Day - a paid stat holiday. I am taking Friday off to make it a nice long weekend. Plans? nothing. nada, niet.

I want to get my house cleaned --- I function better when my surroundings are neat and tidy and clean. and tonight, the main floor should be finished. Tomorrow morning I can do the upstairs and my workout room. then I can work out and cook for the weekend. then I have 3 free days. YAY

I'm meditating regularly (every day). I haven't smoked in 13 years. I haven't drank diet soda regularly for months. I've been living a healthy lifestyle for 2 months now. All in all, it's a great life and I'm in the middle of it.

it's all good.

    Sounds like a great plan. I also removed diet soda from my regular diet. I really miss it. :-(

Mid week musings

Wednesday, February 16, 2011

I've been giving lots of thought to weight loss and lifestyle changes and my age (I'm 60).

First of all I've been frustrated that I'm not losing weight very fast. It's working out to slightly less than a pound a week. In my world, I should be losing twice that. But I read what you say, and hear what you tell me and I know you're right - this is a great rate of weight loss. It's the compulsive part of me that wants instant and immediate rewards. Not the part who will be living with this new body for a long time.

Second, the way I'm eating right now is basically how I'll be eating for a good long time. I assume that as my weight comes down, and my caloric needs come down, I will probably be eating this way for a long time - likely the rest of my life. HMMM

third, I've continued to look at my food and exercise. Although I might lose weight faster if I did more exercise, I can only manage so much beyond my basic 15 minutes a day. A disciplined focused, determined woman would do more. But I dis coveed that as soon as I start focusing on more than the basic 15 minutes, then I have to fight myself to get that much done. So I workout more and harder when I am in the mood and don't fuss if I don't feel like it. The good news is that the more I do, the more I want to do - so I know my exercise numbes will increase over time.

I think I have to reduce my calories a bit more and ensure my fat intake is low. With those two adjustments, my weight loss will be solid and steady. Or at least that's the plan.

the best news is that even with my limited amounts of exercise I just passed 2500 minutes. and I feel good. Full of energy and vitality. and that's all good. oh and the 8 pound loss doesn't hurt either.

    I always found that getting my exercise first thing in the morning helped. Then, you can go on to other things and not get distracted!

TGIF

Friday, February 11, 2011

I am so glad it's the weekend again. Here in Canada, next weekend is a long one, and i'm going to take Friday off to make it a four day holiday.

I have had no energy this week. worked out great last weekend and monday. went to the gym with my friend on Tuesday evening. I was late so got the bare minimum on the tread. we did get a great workout with weights, but not enough cardio. wednesday and thursday, again no energy. I was exhausted and in fact went to bed at 9:30 on wednesday. Thursday night I did som volunteer work, of a kind I loved. lots of fun. But it was 9:30 or 10 before I got home. grabbed a quick walk on the treadmill and then to bed...pooped.

today i bought groceries for the next week - lots of veggies and good protein. so i'm set for the week.

I am not surprised i haven't lost any weight this week, but I haven't gained either, so I'm thankful for small gifts.

  


Monday Musings

Monday, February 07, 2011

I slept very poorly last night. didn't rest at all. But I got to work on time, in spite of the snow. I have had a real breakthrough in my confidence to handle bad weather roads. Everyone is talking about how bad it was and yet it didn't seem that awful to me. I had to go slower than usual, but my 45 minute commute took 60 minutes. Not that awful for such horrible roads.

I'm sure not losing weight - and yes, I know all the reasons why - but it's frustrating. Especially when I feel so good inside.

I'm stronger, more energetic and feeling better than I have in years. So i'll keep going. I'll keep following the plan with the certainty that more will be revealed and with it, so will come weight loss.
