PROPMAN1's SparkPeople Blog PROPMAN1's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community I'm not lost... Haven't been posting or adding in any information this week...not because i'm busy...i've been under the weather. God willing and the creek don't return date will be June 23rd. <em>382</em> <em>41</em> Thu, 19 Jun 2014 14:58:48 EST 1 pound gone... Don't usually get on the scale (it isn't usually my friend) and it said I lost 1 pound. Big yippee...i've been on a plateau for a l-o-n-g time so one pound isn't all that great but...guess i should be happy. Who knows...maybe i'll check the scale again in a few weeks and there will be an even better surprise. Fingers crossed. <em>30</em> Tue, 10 Jun 2014 15:26:26 EST How do I..... If this title shows twice it's because i hit a wrong key...sorry. Anyway, I know someone gave me the answer to this before but think it may have been deleted. When you're in tracking your daily exercise - how do you get the calorie count to show when you're doing weights? Have no idea how many calories i may be burning when strength training. Would really like to know. <BR> <BR> Thanks. Think spring may have finally shown itself around these parts! <em>126</em> Tue, 3 Jun 2014 13:20:28 EST I'm back....... Have been off for a few days from work and SP but now am back. Had hoped the time off would have been restful but....not. Anyway, today i'm back to the fitness center. Yea! Plan is to do at least 15 minutes of cardio and 15 strength training. If there's any of my lunchtime left then i'll add some extra cardio. Tue, 22 Apr 2014 10:49:18 EST One week of good 5/12/14 - 5/16/14 Finally got in a full week where i exercised each day. I'm pleased and happy to have done it! Still taking the stairs 2-3 times per day as well (3 flights each time). Hope everyone has a great weekend. Tue, 15 Apr 2014 13:44:01 EST There's hope....maybe Have upped the workout minutes so am hoping that this will kick-start some weight loss. Have (sort of) sworn off stressing too much about my l-o-n-g plateau period. Let's see if this works at all. Here's to hope..... Fri, 21 Feb 2014 14:03:36 EST Holding & Waiting Am holding on to the same weight i had months ago. Have changed my exercise routine some to see if that helped. Also have been eating less....nothing changes. Still waiting for some weight to go away. <em>39</em> Tue, 3 Dec 2013 13:53:11 EST enough water Yes, it's great to know i'm doing 'something' right! <BR> <BR> Thank you for your help everybody. Thu, 15 Aug 2013 13:10:31 EST Hi and how much First just wanted to say "hi" to everyone. Second thing-know it has been asked and answered before're supposed to drink 8 glasses of water per day. What size glass? If i drink 16.9 oz bottle of water is that just 1 glass or more? Thu, 15 Aug 2013 11:31:23 EST Planking Does anyone know if there's another name for 'planking'? When i go to the fitness tracker and put it in as someting i've done i can't find what i want. Ideas/suggestions. Thanks. Fri, 12 Jul 2013 13:40:45 EST Eating better Just wanted to say "Thanks" to all who gave words re: my 3 day no eating business. I have been doing better...will probably do even better when this humidity and heat goes lower. Best way i can look at it is"something is better than nothing." Wed, 26 Jun 2013 13:32:29 EST Not a good idea I did something that was definitely not a good idea. I knew from past experience that it would bring me pain. Know what it was? I ate almost nothing for 3 days! Now my body is giving me stomach pain. Had intestinal surgery (major) a few years ago and I know my system cannot handle not having some food. Now to get back on track.... <em>39</em> Thu, 6 Jun 2013 13:42:32 EST Feeling Strong and ready to battle 5-23: Today I am feeling stronger than i have in a long time. Even though the scale says no weight lost my body feels better and therefore I do! Hope others feel the same way today and other days. <em>224</em> Thu, 23 May 2013 09:48:03 EST More Shake Weight Info. Can only speak for the woman's Shake Weight since don't know any guys using (that admit it, anyway). In addition to what already said about Shake Weight would suggest not more than 2-3 times per week when first starting. Done correctly it does exhaust your arm muscles. Know commercial basically shows woman doing the exercise in front...also do the one handed and the behind the back (the paperwork shows what am talking about). Strongly suggest that any woman (unless arms in really good shap... Thu, 7 Apr 2011 14:18:20 EST Shake Weight Had said a long time ago in a message to folks in SP that was going to try the Shake Weight and would let you kow if it does! Naturally it's not as easy or is it as much fun as it appears on tv 'jiggle' is pretty much gone and my arms feel stronger. You'll most likely not be able to do the weight for 6 minutes as shown but with time you can get there. BE PREPARED FOR SORE ARM MUSCLES (especially triceps). Wed, 6 Apr 2011 15:56:33 EST If at first....Try, try (again).... Guess I'm like a lot of people....fell off the actual 'diet' wheel....this however has turned out not to be a bad thing....checked weight and despite it all...took back off 3 lbs. that had 'magically' returned. Felt some joy in this (rightly or not) and vowed, once again, to do a better job at taking care of me. At least, I can say that for a while I did really well and vow to do better....will NOT make a new year's resolution about weight...don't want to disapoint myself...Good Luck To One...
