Week 1 done

Monday, October 01, 2012

At my weigh in this morning I have lost 3 lbs :). I was a little disappointed at first in the past week one has always been a bigger loss than that. But then I started thinking that this time it is more the lifestyle change and not just the weight loss.SO I am happy with the 3 lbs gone. I have been working real hard to make the changes and I know that this time I am going to succeed. I have more support from my husband he means well but at times he doesn't have a clue about calories. I am sticking to the same plan this week and keep heading in the right direction.

The weekend was a little rough but I kept up my will power and stuck to my plan and didnt stray too far and when I did I made up for in other meals.

So here is to week 2 success :)


Why I walk in the Walk to End Alzheimer's

Why I walk

I have been walking in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s since 2009, that was right after Mom was diagnosed with Pre Alzheimer’s. Not knowing how much I would come to rely on the Alzheimer’s association. At that time I thought that yes I know this is a terrible disease but we can handle it alone. Well I was wrong you can’t handle this alone I have relied on the Alzheimer’s association so much in the last few months. Now I am taking all the classes and training I can so I can learn how to keep my Mom around and as independent as possible. I call the national hotline to ask questions and get suggestions. Everyone I have dealt with has been wonderful and very helpful.

My Mom has declined a lot this past summer. I thank God that we have the time we have with her and knowing that starting her on medicines early in the progression and believing that is what has given us the last couple of years. I am almost positive that if it wasn’t for the medicines we would of “lost” her quicker. Right now there is no cure just treatment to help possible slow the progression.

Watching one of strongest most independent people I know become a weak and dependent on others is heartbreaking. Watching her slowly (some days not so slowly) losing touch with reality. Knowing that her great grandson and any future great grandchildren will not know the “real” Great grandma that used to have nothing but joy and love for children.

I walk to help pay back to the Alzheimer’s association. I also walk to help raise money to find a cure for this disease so in the future other people will not have to watch their loved ones go through this. Mainly I walk for my Mom.

    I pray for an end to this disease, keep walking. It's good to hear about some success with slowing down the disease and to hear about the Alzheimer's Association. emoticon

I have started the p90x dvd. I am doing the lean p90X so started with the core synergy Wow what a work out. Today I am doing the carido one. I did not have the dvd at home yesterday so that was the one I was suppose to do. I don't think I will do them everyday may take a break and walk. If you are out of shape the p90x will really make you more aware of it. I did modify some portions of it there was no way on day 1 I could do some of the things they showed. I have done great on no sweets still and even getting my vegetables . Weekends are the hardest for me to stay on track so I am putting some plans into place so I wont have as much problems this weekend. emoticon

still on track

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

it may be day 3 but yesterday was a hard day to stay on track but I did it. I have eaten my veggies for the last 3 days. I am not much of a veggie person so getting 3 veggies in a day has been my biggest struggle. I am normally lucky to eat 1 veggie serving a day. I am going to try p90x tonight for the first time not sure if that is going to work or not but trying it any way. I really want to lose some weight and get in better shape. I am tired of being tired.

Day 2

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

I am an emotional eater so the start of today was a big test for me. My husband was on his way to work this morning and got in a car accident. He is ok and the car is able to be driven so that is good. But I was late for work waiting to see if he was going to need a ride to work or not. I work at a school and coming in late means I have to start the day with out my normal routine and the few minutes to get myself prepared. So all day so far I have been running around like a chicken with my head cut off. Today was a staff breakfast (which I missed) and so go in to the teacher lounge and there is sweets (doughnuts, sweet rolls) but I was good and ate some fruit and avoided the sweets WOOOHOOOO!!!.
