Week 3: So far so good! Making a plan!

Monday, March 05, 2012

Last week I did REALLY well! For me, anyway. Here's an update- on everything, except the gallstone issue.

Firstly: Food- I have overhauled my entire "way of eating", and am tracking daily. I only missed a couple of dinner updates as we went out to functions. Luckily, It was mostly finger food, so I was able to eat light. I have also found, that now, when I eat something too- "filling" I get an upset stomach. For example- yesterday, I had 2 mini snickers bars and my stomach revolted on me. It was screaming "What the heck is WRONG with you??"

Second: Exercise- Am doing AWESOME! As a matter of fact, I have a Zumba class at 10:45 today. Here's my schedule-
Zumba- 2 days a week
Jazzercize: 2 days a week
Yoga: once a week.
Weight training: 2x a week.
Elliptical- 1-2x a week
DVD's- so far, hoopnotica and Tai Bo- at least once a week.

I know it sounds like overkill, but I have it all scheduled out, I don't over exert myself and I get a form of activity daily. I allow NO excuses. adn at least I have a backup plan if I miss something. I have found that my energy has increased a LOT and I no longer need heartburn medication.

Third: Keeping healthy- I see my doctor tomorrow on a plan of action on the gallstones. Surgery will be LAST on my list! Currently, I am trying to flush them out. Fingers crossed! I see my chiropractor monthly to keep my body aligned. Am planning on a monthly massage. Yes- my muscles are a bit sore!

Thus far, I have gone from 183 lbs to 177. I have to make sure not to lose weight too fast as that is something that can aggravate the gallstone pain.
I really want to thank everyone for their encouragement! It helps so very much!

    You're doing fabulous! You have really embraced your new journey and are showing the kind of commitment it takes to make this a success. Good for you! I have acid reflux problems and continue to take medication for it. However, before making eating and exercise changes, it was common for the acid to burn through the medicine, which made trying to sleep miserable. I haven't had those problems in a couple of months! I know you are happy to have some relief. emoticon
