WUB weekly update

Thursday, October 25, 2012

I have decided to go through with an Ablation procedure for my heart. I asked a nurse a bunch of questions. I did hear that I have to stay out of work for a week, no strenuous activity and no driving. For one week I will be frustrated and bored. I have ideas to sew, read, paint my nails and relax. It is going to be tough not exercising for a whole week. However It will probably be good for me. It will give my body a chance to reset and I can work back into exercise.

Any suggestions for my week off please let me know. I will probably drop my calories some to adjust for the lack of activity. I will be laying around a lot for the week.

I am not as nervous about the procedure. I am working on my health and exercising hard while I still can.

I also am up a bit on the scale. It is frustrating when I am so close to onederland. Someday I will get there though. I can only keep working and hope for the best.

My goals for October
1. Exercise Daily but don’t focus on killing it every day (I was over training) ---DONE (kind of)

2. Lose some weight (I don’t have a specific number just something) ---this week the scale is up some.

3. Stay in my calorie range ---DONE!!!

4. Exercise 6 days a week and stay active on day 7 ---DONE

5. Practice Positive Affirmations . --I need to do this more this week

6 Clean my piles of clothing and donate large items. ---DONE clothes donated!

    Practicing positive affirmations should be done every day. Just take a few minutes before you get out of bed to "set your head" on how you plan on being and treating yourself that day. You're awesome, you're one of a kind, and you DESERVE it. =)

    I promise I will tell you if you start to get nutty and obsess, for both our sakes LOL! We'll play lots of WWF and Song Pop, too, and chat on the phone, etc. Movies and reading are always a good thing, too! The time will fly by, believe me.

    Good luck with your procedure. Don't worry so much about the week of no activity. Since you wrote "no strenuous activity" does that mean you can take a stroll down the street?

    I know what you mean about the scale not moving. I'm trying to focus on eating more lean/veggie protein and it does seem to help.
