MONTH AFTER MONTH DOING IT MY WAY
Wednesday, June 27, 2012
I hate not being able to go for a walk each day of the month but there is hope for me in July. I don't care what the doctor says. I am going for that much need walk. I have called my surgeon and he has told me that walking will do my legs good. I will start walking again next month and hopefully my son will go with me this time. I go my knee replacement in October and I know that I have to get off atleast 60 lbs before then. I know I can do this. I know that I have the support of all my friends on SparkPeople behind me.

If I follow this plan each day I know that my mind and body will be as one again. I do not want to get myself into that depression rut like I have been for the past 3 months. I want to be free to think as one instead of 3.
I lost my temper with my hubby again and I ended up vibrating because of it. If it wasn't for my kids calming me down I think I would've killed my hubby for sure. My kids are my soul and my life line for sure.

I could follow your example, and be a whole lot busier, but I've just gotten used to being lazy. And I think, my dd does even less than me, unless of course, she is on her exercise kick, and then she will do as much as 90 or 120 min. exercise and even walk an hour or 2.
Since you are getting your knee replacement in Oct, that is a great idea to get it off before that... because you won't be walking that much right away after surgery, but also, because it will make your recovery so much easier too, not to mention, you'll look and feel better, and have less risk of depression... You go, girl!!!

Just don't end up overwhelming yourself and end up discouraged. You've got a pretty busy schedule there. You can do it as long as you are eating the right foods for energy and eating enough.
I am a going concern from the time I get up in the morning until my head hits the pillow at night. I'm up at 5 most mornings and in bed by ten most nights.
A long as I'm eating high micro-nutrient foods and enough of them I have energy to go all day long. I've been called the energizer bunny! LOL And I don't even have any children! LOL
Your highest micro-nutrient foods are your dark leafy green vegetables, berries, beans, onions and mushrooms.
My breakfast consists of pomegranate/blueberry juice, fresh or frozen, berries; the highest antioxidant of, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, combined with 2 tbsp ground psyllium husks in a smoothie.
Lunch is a huge at least 5 cup salad; romaine lettuce, baby spinach, tomato, red onion, pumpkin seeds, my dressing is a garlic and onion sauce.
If I need something in the middle of the afternoon I grab a fruit; my 1 banana a day
Dinner for example tonight it was roast spaghetti squash, topped with 1 cup black beans, and stir fry; onions, broccoli, green pepper, mushrooms, red pepper, zucchini blended with more onion and garlic sauce.
fruits and vegetables are unlimited! I live by the 90/10 rule the 90% is my fruits and vegetable; G-BOM ad the 10% is my meat dairy etc Processed foods are non-exsistant!
I never run out of energy throughout the day and am genuinely tired by bedtime!
I don't know if you'll want to give this a try and see if it does for you what it did and does for me! Just thought I'd share it with you. Have been doing this since October of last year and have dropped almost 90 pounds now and 10 dress sizes.
But I wish you all the best as you find what works for you.

I know that if that was my schedule I'd be all wrung out in one day or even half, but it's not for me, it's for you! I have Rheumatoid Arthritis, so that makes most normal exercise tough to do, but I do what I can. I believe in you, you can do it once you put your mind to it and it looks and sounds like your mind is in it, so You Go Girl! Give it all you have! Just think of the results you'll be getting. WooHoo! I'm wishing you the very best!!
