I just did my work out. I tried the elliptical on Level 3 on the interval program. Oh my gosh!! I did level 1 yesterday and it was sooo easy. So I thought, I'll not do 2, since it's similar to 1 with a very low resistance low interval... so I did level 3 with a slightly higher lower setting and the same high setting as level 2. The higher setting kicked my butt! But It was nice to not have the lowest setting on the lower interval. Usually my feet and legs feel like they are getting away from me.
So at least my work outs have been doing SOMETHING. My Chiropractor has noticed the more mobility in my pelvis and my spine. I haven't been having as much back issues. Headaches are still hit or miss, but I haven't had too many. Most headaches I have often come from sleeping funny or just a general headache. Things are starting to at least kind of show. At least in my physical abilities... and other things. I do see the doc tomorrow. I will be inquiring about my Thyroid levels and a couple other things.
As for my weight, it's down a little from my gain about 3 weeks ago. So I got up to about 220
This morning I was 217. So it's hopefully going down and maybe i'll be back to where I started.
Hoping I will get some direction with the doc tomorrow and maybe i can get stuff under control and get the weight off. Seems like the harder I try the more my weight stays on! hahaha.
I still find it very odd I gained so much that weekend.. I was barely over my calories for that saturday and only had 3 piece of pizza. I still am thinking it's the carbs. Mostly bread type carbs. i haven't been eating my usual English Muffin every morning the past couple weeks. I had eggs mostly last week and this week I had some corn cereal (like corn flakes). I have had pita bread, mostly a "seed and grain" type for lunch. I"ve been eating my lasagne the past couple of nights. I still think I need to ween myself off so much bread product. Pita seems fine for me though. I'm getting there.
Sometimes bread is nice on my stomach when it isn't happy. maybe I'll make Meg's Pita chips this weekend... mmm.
I haven't found any whole grain pasta here yet. I am slowly expanding my horizons for shopping. Often my Mother in law or my husband do the shopping. I did find a lovely place that sells produce! Got some yummy spinach there. I think I will shop there more often. The spinach was definitely superior to the Tesco and Sainsbury spinach!
I have also signed up for the Spark Coach thing, to try it out. So I am making notes and hoping it might help me focus too. Do you think a daily goal might be to not have "bread"? I'm excluding my pita. Like muffins and bread slices, and scones and whatever else. Should I put potatoes in that? i haven't been eating as many lately. My hubby LOVES potatoes.
anyways. enough rambling. back to school work for me! :) Thanks for listening/reading.
