The roller coaster

Monday, August 19, 2013

As you can see from my pictures, I have very curly hair. Mom used to recite that old poem to me:
When she was good she was very very good, when she was bad she was horrid.

I think it stuck. I can go days, weeks, months doing very very well addressing all my health issues. Then something happens and that little curl takes over. Now, I don't do anything really horrible, I just slack off from exercise and throw a few extra calories into the mix.

Through it all, I keep taking my high blood pressure meds and thyroid meds and eventually get back on track. I need more good and less horrid.

My meal and exercise plan:
Oatmeal every morning with fruit, walnuts and almond milk
A protein, a complex carb and veggies for lunch.
Similar or a protein shake for dinner.
Fruit or buckwheat grahams for snacks.
One cup of coffee, only.
Water between meals only to decrease reflux.

Cardio Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday.
Weight training Monday and Thursdays.

    You can do it Linda!!! I'm like you, I stick to my plan until, I, don't. Then it seems to be a full stop. Here's to a positive BLC interim for both of us!!!

    Sounds like a good plan. I didn't have the curls, but I remember my mom reciting that little saying too! My youngest brother does have really curly hair. However she didn't say that to him LOL!

    Great plan, are you tracking calories to be sure you're eating enough?

    An achievable plan. You are a very sensible lady and you do know what is good for you and what not. You go, girl!
