Just tired and hungry all day

Friday, January 22, 2010

Tired and hungry all day long. So I am listening this time and eating more today and cutting back on my exercise. Just my bootcamp video, 30 minutes of cardio on the elliptical at just barely over 80% max HR, and then a 20 minute cooldown on the bike. No weight training today....tomorrow maybe. Or maybe just nothing tomorrow.

BOSU is just not for me. So you will not be seeing me gently balancing on one. LOL

I truly gave it my all for two weeks... but my ouchy knee was having NONE of it. Sore sore sore. My knee has been really sore fot the past two weeks. I am not sure if it was from the BOSU but it probably is not doing it any good either. Made an appointment with the Dr to see what he has to say. Probably also time to sign up for PT on my sore left shoulder since that is not getting any better either. Not worse but not better and it is hindering my upper body workouts. SHEESH... I am just falling apart here. emoticon

Reading another interesting book "eating the moment" by Pavell Somov. I am enjoying it and finding it very readable. The discussion I am reading now is about "awakening the overeating zombie" we all have in us. "Awaken it" means to STOP eating like a zombie and be mindful about eating in general.

Later, going off to bed now and plan on sleeping LATE tomorrow. emoticon Hope you are planning a wonderful weekend devoted to your food and exercise program.

    I have been having major shoulder pain lately, too, so I feel for you. Keeps me from sleeping all night most nights. Good for you for listening to your body today and letting it rest. Enjoy that lazyboy day!

    Great description of anti-mindful eating. I've been guilty of zombie mode myself from time to time. Of course, now that we list everything in the nutrition tracker, our eyes are wide open.

    Sorry to hear your knee and shoulder are troubling you. Good idea to lay off the BOSU for awhile and seek some PT.

    Hope you got to sleep good and late this morning. I really enjoy your new profile pic too!

    My husband & I were arguing about zombie eating yesterday -- he's all for it (loves to eat with the tv on) and I am emphatically against it. I don't know why he has to discard so much of what I say, when he can clearly see that it works. I guess because he just doesn't want to change!

    In these days of multitasking, I am so often doing something elsewhile I eat. Eating is so much more enjoyable when I take time out to experience it.

    Sounds interesting awakening the overeating zombie. I don't think cats are likely to be good at this. I was at a function today that served treats and before I knew it I'd eaten 2 cookies. LOL. Zombie eating.
