DOVESEYES's SparkPeople Blog DOVESEYES's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community Week 150... Hi <BR> <BR> This week I incorporated more exercise and food into my plan as per last weeks BMR calculation. With the limitations of my back and neck problems, I lowered my Zumba time and added longer walking sessions. <BR> <BR> This felt great as the pains subsided quicker, such a relief. If you live with pain, you seem to carry on through it and then suffer so much you have to stop exercising for a time. <BR> <BR> So I got on the scale today with some expectation of a loss, NO, it wasn... Sat, 20 Dec 2014 21:46:57 EST Week 149...Weigh in and outlook... Morning, <BR> <BR> Let's get it out of the way, this week I ate way too little and the amazing machine which is my body kept me going by saving as much as it could. <BR> <BR> Last week 75.7 kg <BR> This week 76.3 kg <BR> Up 0.6 kg <BR> <BR> I have revisited the calculations of BMR, calories burned per day and calories needed to have a loss and am 'fired up' for the new stage. <BR> <BR> There are still 17 days left in the year to finish on an amazing low <em>9</em> <em>43</em> <em... Sat, 13 Dec 2014 19:40:24 EST Week 148... back to blogging... Hi <BR> <BR> I have been back a week now from New Zealand. <BR> <BR> I came back weighing in at 77.2 kgs, I did not weigh in or keep notes on my eating. <BR> I was doing great till my friends arrived and we had to eat out all the time, cafe and restaurant food for three days was not a great plan for me. <BR> <BR> On my return I went back to eating as I had when I first arrived in NZ and have lost 1.5 kgs this week. <BR> More water and two medium-- one small meals a day and snacks of h... Sun, 7 Dec 2014 00:00:38 EST I'm back from New Zealand. Hi Everyone, <BR> <BR> I flew out to New Zealand on the 12th of November, as my Dad was in hospital very ill. I arrived in his hometown on the 13th at 9:30 am and went to visit him in hospital. I spent the day with him and he was so happy to see me. <BR> I was told on Tuesday he would not last and I know he waited for me to get there. <BR> He passed away on Friday the 14th after being very ill for three weeks. He was buried on Monday the 17th and I gave the eulogy, I often think it a shame... Sat, 29 Nov 2014 21:33:03 EST Week 144..Highs and Lows... Morning, <BR> <BR> This week has been a real whirlwind of activity. <BR> <BR> My Dad is very ill in hospital in New Zealand so I have been calling him, he was critical for a while with kidney and liver problems. <BR> He could hardly talk and the fluid build up made every movement painful. I got DD (now a Doctor) to call and speak to his doctor and she said she was glad Bec called that day as she was very worried about him 2 days before. <BR> <BR> Hubby had made arrangements for us to tra... Sat, 8 Nov 2014 18:30:16 EST Week 142... down down scales going down... Hello there !!! <BR> <BR> As per my friend feed, went nuts on Tuesday to get the weight moving downwards and ended up resting for the rest of the week. No pun intended. <BR> <BR> I completed 4 hours of Zumba, heaps of pilates, weights, reverse pushups (where you have your back to a table, arms either side and do push ups by lowering yourself and then lifting up ) he he not a great image but you get the idea, can't quite remember the correct term. <BR> <BR> The rest of the week was a rest... Sat, 25 Oct 2014 21:47:55 EST Week 141... Up a little, down a little.. Morning, <BR> <BR> a new day dawns here in Western Australia after a stormy night, where even the insurance companies were sending texts of weather warnings. Even though we are top of a hill, we are surrounded by even higher hills and did not get the brunt of the weather this time. <BR> <BR> It is unusual to have rain at this time of the year, it stops around September and starts again in March. So not sure where that leaves climate changers? <BR> <BR> My water tank is overflowing and the... Sat, 18 Oct 2014 21:38:31 EST Week 140...Thinking, Thinking... Hi <BR> this week I went up and up as is usual for this time of the month. I was lethargic and moany :), but managed a small loss today to brighten me up again. <BR> <BR> A friend of mine once said "Don't make decisions at night, they are usually better made in the daytime, when your thinking is clear" <BR> <BR> I woke at 4:30am and my brain seemed to be already in 'wacky' mode, my thoughts turning to all the things I have no control over. Bec going interstate, Hubby having migraines, his ... Sat, 11 Oct 2014 21:15:58 EST Week 139...Bec's Birthday... Hi All, <BR> <BR> It's raining quite heavily as I wait for Bec to arrive so we can celebrate her birthday, 25 today. <BR> <BR> My waters broke at 7:30 am and she arrived at 10:37am, and she has been a joy ever since. <BR> <BR> Hubby picked Rebecca for her first name and I picked Helen for her second, I wanted her to have the courage of Helen of Troy and be outspoken against injustice, I have worked hard to encourage her to be independant and have thoughts of her own, to care for people ... Sat, 4 Oct 2014 21:56:27 EST Week 138...Long Weekend... Hi there, <BR> The end of September, where did it all go? <BR> <BR> We are having Queen's Birthday long weekend here in Western Australia. It has been raining and stormy I'm feeling sorry for the children at the Show. Not a great start to school holidays. <BR> <BR> This week I thought I had fallen off the rails as my weight went up, after checking my log I found it was increasing the zumba and it added muscle a good 1.45 kgs woo hoo!! <BR> So I'm 74.3 kgs this week up 0.8 kgs. Not a big in... Sat, 27 Sep 2014 22:13:57 EST Week 137... Hi <BR> <BR> From reading a few blogs this week it seems most people are feeling nostalgic about how they are doing and looking back over the time they have spent on SP, whether it is diet or exercise or feelings or how their clothes fit, there is a common theme. <BR> <BR> I'm not sure if it is the change of season coming or the blogs but I'm joining in. <BR> <BR> Two years ago I couldn't:- <BR> <BR> Sleep on my back <BR> Reach my feet <BR> Go a day with out pain killers <BR> Put my h... Sat, 20 Sep 2014 22:22:24 EST Week 136... Oops Nearly Forgot to Blog... Hey there, <BR> <BR> What a lovely weekend I've had...worn out now but happy. <BR> <BR> Saturday: I met my BFF at a Chocolate Factory, and we had coffee and caught up after not seeing each other for a year. It was my fault- no car, no rides, my back has been so bad for a year and the time just went. <BR> But it was like we had just been apart for a week and we talked for three hours and caught up on family and friends. I did have to get up and walk around the park to keep my back loose,... Sun, 14 Sep 2014 04:52:12 EST Week 135 Hello, <BR> <BR> We heard the peacock again but he was around here at night and I could not catch a glimpse of him. So no piccies this week. <BR> <BR> The weather alternated between warm sunny days and rainy days and so did my weight which came in this week 1.5 kg higher at 74.8 kgs. <BR> <BR> I looked over my log and found the increase comes when I take one of my new meds once a month. I've been panicking all this time trying to get down and it turns out to be a continual increase at thi... Sat, 6 Sep 2014 21:33:07 EST Week 134... Morning, <BR> <BR> I'm buzzing today, three weeks of losses and today another 0.7 kg (1.5 lbs) . <BR> <BR> My clothes are looser, on shopping day I put on my jeans and then realized I had put on the pair I could not do up last time I tried, just as well as the jumping up and down to celebrate could have been a catastrophe!!!! LOL... <BR> <BR> So today is a looking back day to celebrate the new me as I am now. One photo was taken in 2011 and then in 2013, I'll have to get a new one done s... Sat, 30 Aug 2014 21:38:21 EST Week 133.. Morning, <BR> <BR> A loss of 0.6 kgs this week, pretty good with TOM visiting. <BR> <BR> I cut back my exercise a bit, doing 4 x 20 min zumbas over the day with pilates in between and some walking. <BR> I ate more salads- ugh - in the cold of winter it's torture --LOL. <BR> <BR> Huh :) pulled a muscle on my hip on Friday vacuuming and I'm still limping around, old people!!! <BR> I've got a physio appointment this week so Anita will help with some exercises to add to my regime for some m... Sat, 23 Aug 2014 22:29:42 EST Week 132... Morning <BR> <BR> This week I dropped 0.5 kgs. <BR> <BR> I went to the Cardiologist who was full of praise for me. That made my day!!! <BR> DD gave me her cardigan and said, " this will fit you now Mum." <BR> <BR> I have found it so hard to eat more as the scale goes up, over a year I have bounced along 73 -74 kgs. I have adjusted my exercise, food, changed and added new foods and still I'm stuck here. Ugh...!!! <BR> <BR> I'm letting go of today and these thoughts right now. I can do th...

Hi Everyone, <BR> <BR> <img src=""> <BR> <BR> <img src=""> <BR> <BR> This week was nice with fine days, the warm heat rises in the morning and the cold air turns to clouds up here on the hill.

Sat, 9 Aug 2014 23:21:02 EST Week 130... Happy August Everyone!!!... Hi there, <BR> <BR> August brings showers to Western Australia, so we have green grass and flowers, wildlife and low temps. <BR> <BR> It also brings my darling Dad's birthday, he'll be 89 this week. <BR> <BR> I have always had him on a 'daughters pedestal', and even more so in his older years. At 87 he was painting his house, a wooden home. he would tire easily so he did it little by little. <BR> <BR> I'm glad I have a brick house as I don't have his stamina!! <BR> <BR> He was always ... Sat, 2 Aug 2014 23:16:14 EST Week 129... Hi there, <BR> <BR> It has been cold here this week, but I feel like I'm complaining after seeing your snow in winter. The last time I was living with snow was 30 years ago when my son was born. I went into hospital a couple of days before but Hubby drove to the hospital in our little VW down a mountain through a snow storm at night. <BR> <BR> DS was born at 11:56pm on a Saturday night-Bastille Day. Hubby then drove home... brr... <BR> <BR> This week the loss was 0.2 kgs. I've tried as ... Sat, 26 Jul 2014 22:25:55 EST Friday...

Hello, <BR> <BR> This week I had TOM visit and was eating more and exercising more to build muscle and burn fat. My weight went up 1.1 kgs but its not a problem I will just adjust this week. <BR> <BR> I have put it on my tracker to stay accountable as King_Slayer taught me. Miss him lots. <BR> <BR> Not much going on here, sunny mornings, still no car Hubby is having trouble milling the head. He is amazing as he is learning as he goes along!

She has dementia and in the past was always a worrier, so it was nice to see her enjoying every day with no care in the world. <BR> <BR> It was cold so I wore my red jersey dress and Hubby who is not given to compliments said"Wow, you look great!" <BR> <BR> <img src=""> <BR> <BR> On the way home we st...

Mostly the same during the week, so I was looking for warm spots to sit in so I could warm myself up. <BR> <BR> Last week had a good loss of 1.3 kgs this week a small one of 0.2kgs. <BR> <BR> I'm still battling the ups and downs of the week but the extra strength days seem to be good for me and as its cold, thermogenics are in play as well. <BR> <BR> Hubby, DS and I went to the engagement last night, it was to be for... Sat, 28 Jun 2014 22:50:47 EST Week 124...New Ideas... Hi everyone, <BR> <BR> this week has been quite a low week for me emotionally, nothing specific, maybe I could blame winter :) there were lots of storms and cold dark days this week. <BR> <BR> I'm considering only inputting my weight in the blog once a month, instead of the usual weekly. I'm hoping to gain a perspective of continuation not racing at the end of the week to show a loss. <BR> <BR> Instead I intend to work on changing my body into the shape I have been hoping for since I star... Sun, 22 Jun 2014 01:23:25 EST Week 123...weigh in Hi <BR> We had a lovely time away but I did indulge in too much carbs for me and so the scales showed it this week. <BR> <BR> Last Friday I was 73.8 kgs (162.36 lbs) <BR> <BR> Today on my usual Sunday weigh in I'm 75.8kgs (166.76 lbs) <BR> <BR> So an increase of 2 kgs. <BR> <BR> According to my calipers 3 lbs of that is muscle so I'm sure it will even out over this week. <BR> <BR> No photos either as my new phone just could not take them indoors and they are mostly black LOL. <BR> <BR>...

Dear SP Friends, <BR> <BR> Weight wise this week was great for me, I have been going up and up but the last three weeks I've stayed the same. 76.2 by Sunday morning. Whilst this is NOT a loss, it is reassuring not to go up and encourages me for "maintenance time". <BR> <BR> I've been really getting into my walking and physio and zumba. Yesterday I started my 45 min dvd and for the first time I looked at the clock before I started and found the time frame is actually 70 mins long... must be...
