Cleared for the Probe

Wednesday, June 17, 2009

So yay, I get to do the Walking Study!!! :D And get paid extra for coming in to get re-tested for my Glucose today. HAHAHAHAHA. In case anyone was wondering, last time it was like... 69.1 and today it was 76 and 78. Although I can't bleed very well and he had to stick me four total times. 3 times on one finger (the second two didn't really go deep enough or work) and then we tried a fresh one to get more blood. mwahaha.

Anyway -- I had a horrible time finding parking to go in and get tested AND got out of the house later than expected AND it took longer at the place than I thought... so I started my 4 mile run at 10:38AM which here in AL right now means HOT HOT HOT HOT HOT.

The first part was mostly pretty well shaded and I also had a dude running up ahead that I was trying to pace/catch up to. I got closer but then he started walking and turned when I was still going straight. DARN YOU!!! hahaha.

It was a TOUGH RUN -- just wayyyyy too hot and I was feeling underfueled/watered since I was fasting before the glucose test and all I ate before running was a little container of almonds and dried cherries -- and I had my LONE bottle of water. I did manage to see the Walking Study guy and another dude that was in there talking with us while I was on my way running back to my car! :D hahaha. I was listening to music but I'm pretty sure Walking Study Dude said something encouraging... ?

I didn't stretch much afterward because I HAD to get in the car and a) get going back home because of time constraints and b) get that AC going!!! PHWEW!

But I'm VERY happy I still did my run because I had to skip yesterday and I don't want to let anything slide -- although I DID run out of time for Pilates. I was a few minutes late to work even without doing it at all!

Tomorrow is Rowing and a 3 mile run. Woot.

Then the Walking Study starts next week and I do not expect to be able to run much next week, just shorter runs if I have enough energy to make it happen.

My nose has been running a bit today and I'm feeling a little tired -- I hope it's just needing to sleep more + allergies or something and not the beginning of a cold!

I did manage to get a healthy day of food packed for work -- 2 snacks and my lunch -- AND make myself a smoothie to refuel before I had to leave again.

Last night was REALLY fun -- playing RockBand w/ LAFTERSFREE and her bf and making pizza. Although we opted to use the flatout light italian herb wraps instead of crust. It was DELICIOUS. They didn't really get crispy except the edges that weren't covered in toppings, but we kinda rolled it up as a pizza wrap and it was AMAZING.

OH!!!!!!!!

AND FOR THE RECORD!!!!!! :D That entry I posted yesterday regarding Ben & Jerry's and LC's -- yeah that was an ancient entry QUOTED within a new blog. I have a million trillion sparkpoints now and the Gold Trophy (not top yet but getting closer!) and no I did not eat a whole pint of B&J's. That was in the past. :) It was just fun reminiscing and I wanted to share it plus a couple of my comments from now looking back. :)

LUNCHTIME! YAY!

Documenting a Compliment...

Tuesday, June 16, 2009

...before I forget.

(So sorry, THREE BLOGS IN A DAY?!?!? anyway...)

I was at Rowing this morning and one of the ladies asked me about SparkPeople cause I as wearing my technical shirt. WOOT. She said she joined a couple years ago and was really impressed with what a good source of information it was. Then I told her about my experiences with SparkPeople and she was shocked.

She said, "You look like you've been tall and thin your entire life!!"

:D :D :D :D :D

Just read an old entry of mine...

Tuesday, June 16, 2009

"I would just like to say that I have 4000 SparkPoints at this moment.

MuahhahahahaaaAAA!!! Soon I will have them all!!!

Hahaha. Just kidding. Man, I swear I will have that top trophy because I am going to stay with SparkPeople.com forever. :D

Although this week has not been so hot for me. It's that TOM and Ben&Jerry's have been spending TOO MUCH TIME with me. I have a plan of action for staying within my ranges today even though I've eaten a whole pint today. Yes, I ate a pint of Ben &Jerry's 10th Anniversary Version of Phish Food. I know. WHY DO I DO THIS TO MYSELF??? I should have stuck to my guns and gotten a light ice cream even though WalMart doesn't have ANY pretty much. But anyway -- now all my ice cream is gone so it will tempt me no longer. I just have to eat a very light dinner and I'll be fine. I hope.

hehehe. There's still the devil on one side saying -- Tell DH about the new Little Caesar's! And the angel is saying -- DON'T DO IT!!! You can be strong!

I will be good! "

I remember-- I did NOT tell DH about the new Little Caesar's. :) hahahaha.

Also -- SPARKPEOPLE.COM FOREVER!!!! TOP TROPHY YOU WILL BE MINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

    Interesting about Walmart having no light ice cream. I LOVE going to Target cause their entire freezer section is stocked with TONS of low fat/light ice cream. PLUS they even have the 100 calories ice cream cones and ice cream sandwiches.They're super cheap too! I think a box of 6 is about 1.69. Yeah...CRAZY good deal!

Also, I'd appreciate it if you didn't mention Mr. Casesar anymore. I love him ....his crazy bread, his cheap $5 pizza...his wonderful pizza sauce....ohhhh you make me crave him so!

Feeling much better...

Tuesday, June 16, 2009

... after having a nice ON POINT day yesterday.

Even though this morning I had to miss the 2miler.

I found out after posting yesterday that I had to come into work 2 hours earlier than usual, and I also decided I needed to go grocery shopping this morning. SO!

I actually did the rowing, then rowing machine, then Upper and Lower Body ST... and to be honest I was feeling pretty wiped so I didn't mind that I ran out of time for my run after getting groceries and whatnot.

Tomorrow I have to go REtest my blood glucose for the Walking Study. I think he said my result was actually too LOW? I'm going to ask about it in more detail when I go in tomorrow morning, but it was off by .9 of a point from what the sponsor was requiring for participation.

Then it's a 4mile run and Pilates on the Ball!

I tell you what -- my HAMSTRINGS are totally feeling this rowing and whatnot. You don't really realize this from watching I guess because mostly what you SEE when watching rowing are the arms, but really it's the legs and the core that do most of the work. As a matter of fact I'd rank it 1. legs, 2. core, 3. arms. Your arms mostly stay straight during the stroke and are a stable frame for the rest of your body to work the oar.

I guess that's it for now. :)

NATURALSOAPGIRL 6/16/2009 4:32PM

    I have to disagree with Pam. I've been hypoglycemic my whole life and if there's one thing I know - low blood sugar and carbs don't mix. If blood sugar is too low and you eat carbs you will feel better momentarily, but within a couple of hours you'll crash and the cycle can start over again. The best thing to do for low blood sugar is always make sure you have some protein. Protein doesn't give you the immediate jolt that carbs would, but instead it BALANCES your blood sugar. It might be just enough to get you in the range where you need to be. (and endurance athletes may be popping glucose tablets, but that doesn't mean it's SMART).

PRAIRIEDAWNPAM 6/16/2009 3:05PM

    If you are burning a lot of energy with your workouts, mild hypoglycemia is possible. That's why endurance athletes pop glucose tablets and gels. Have a carb-based snack before your next blood test, a glass of milk or some fruit or both, and you should be fine. If not, it may suggest hypoglycemia which can be managed with more frequent snacks especially when you are exercising. My hubby is a type 1 diabetic and sometimes gets hypoglycemic from not eating enough while at his physically-demanding job; this was true for him even before his diagnosis.

Weekend Eating - GOTTA GET IT UNDER CONTROL!

Monday, June 15, 2009

So...

Friday was ok. A little splurgey but not too bad. (Also the concert was AMAZING -- Ted Leo + The Pharmacists = heaven. At The Bottletree I had a burrito w/ vegan chili, cheese and rice, side of tortilla chips w/ guac and salsa. So good.)

Saturday was total nonsense. :D After my race I made full use of all of the free food and it was ridiculous. Then I went swimming and ate a ton of chips and salt free pretzels and a sub (which was all veggie and not too bad for a sub but still... white bread roll ugh). THEN that night I went to a birthday party and ate wayyyyy too much dessert. :P wah wah.

Then Sunday -- I ate well. Except for the FOUR PROTEIN BARS. I bought them on the spur of the moment at WalMart to taste test the brand and ... I ate all of them. In addition to what would amount to a normal calorie day. Yeah. Not good.

(Ok the bars were DELICIOUS in case anyone's wondering they were Pure Protein brand! -- all under 200cal and 19-20g of protein each 2-3g of sugar, although they do use sugar alcohols.)

That said, I AM happy with my level of activity this weekend with the race and the rowing on Sunday - I just really need to make sure I'm not losing focus on my eating when the weekend rolls around.

This weekend I will face a challenging eating day on Saturday because I'm driving to and from Atlanta that day to go through the temple with my brother before he goes on his mission. I will eat wherever and whatever my family eats. Just gotta plan to make the best decisions I can except for ONE splurge meal. Also I will plan some healthy snacks for the road.

NO EXCUSES THE REST OF THE WEEKEND. Friday - on point. Sunday -- I'll be hosting healthy meal night so I gotta make sure I make it good. :) hehehe. TRACK EVERYTHING FRIDAY AND SUNDAY.

I haven't weighed myself in a while. Last week I was starting to feel really slim again -- my sides were firming up again and I felt great. The weekend has pretty much undone that feeling -- so I'm going to wait until later in the week to check in with the scale. :P

Rowing club has made boat and lineup assignments for the summer up until the new learn to row camp. The thing is we have enough people to fill 3 boats and we can only take out two 8boats (because that's what we have -- and two coaches anyway...) So not everyone gets to row two times each week -- we're on kind of a rotation. HOWEVER -- I'm going to sub for someone in another boat tomorrow so I will still get to row twice this week.

My workout plan for this week:

Today: OFF. Did nothing
Tues: Rowing, erg at the Aquatic Center unless no one can go with me, upper and lower body ST, and a 2 miler
Wed: 4 mile run, Pilates on the Ball
Thu: Rowing, 3 mile run
Fri: Erg at the AqC, ST
Sat/Sun 2 miler and 5 miler - the day will depend on when I get back from ATL. If I have enough time I'll do the 5 miler Saturday, if not either a 2 miler or off and 5 miler on Sunday.

There's also an optional open row again on Sunday, but I think I might opt out this particular weekend.

    Great job, as always, being accountable to yourself. That's the most important thing, right? You don't have to be perfect--just honest and always looking for the space to improve to help you meet your goals. You're definitely always doing that, and it's a great example! :-)

My weekend was out of control too. The summer is always worse with all the social time excuses. I too am feeling like all the good I was feeling at the end of the week was completely undone by one stupid day. Grr... I'm sure your ambitious routine will get you back there in no time though!

Good luck, especially with the upcoming family time. Sounds like you're ready to face it head on though! :-)

    Weekends are definitely my weak zone...with it getting progressively worse as each day ends. Yeah, I snacked on 2.5 svgs of Chex mix last night when my day should have been done food wise. Thankfully I came in at 1551, so it wasn't horrid, but still! I can totally relate to just losing that good feeling (you are what you eat, indeed!) Have a strong, kick butt week!
