Still struggling to get the zigzag out of my weight chart...

Wednesday, October 03, 2012

Up and down...right now am on an up stroke. I know I snack on the wrong things and lately have been craving pistachios (and not measuring!!!). Also, have been helping my DH eat up his gummy worms before they get stale.

I will go back to frozen bananas for a treat (Dr. recommeded more potassum in diet). Speaking of potassium I had 1 cu of strawberries and a medium pear on my oatmel this morning and that was more potassium than a banana.

Tomorrow for breakfast will try a smoothie with brown rice protein, banana, strawberries and Miralax. (Dr. also recommended the Miralax daily.)

Going to gym to swim this evening. I am trying to go 4 times a week like I was doing when my weight was on the lower end of this zigzag. I know I have been pretty sedentary since the last toenail procedure. I am finally able to wear my regular shoes with arch supports so I will be able to walk further now (than minimally for the last 4 weeks).

Onward and downward on the weight chart and no upward zig or zag.... emoticon

    I want to thank you for mentioning that strawberries and pears have more potassium than bananas. I've been having charlie horse issues - a side effect of not having enough potassium in your system. I've been looking for some variety in my diet besides the bananas.

It sounds like you know yourself rather well and I know you will even out and do well.

    Do the best you can. Snacking gets to me, especially in
the cooler months. Must be the shorter hours in the day
or just the temp itself. Take care, hugs!
