My back seems to really be injured. I have not been able to exercise for 3 weeks. I go to PT in two weeks and I really hope they give me the go to do at least something. The pool is FINALLY open and usable so all I will do some stuff in there where strain on my back will be minimal. Working 12 hour shifts is a killer. Every day after work my legs and back are killing me and all I can do is make it home to go to bed. I have vacation after this weekend so I hope that t...

They seem to think my leg has to do with my back issues. I had to skip Bootcamp this round, because only low impact exercise. That is a five week round of Bootcamp missed. I am using this time to get myself disciplined in food. I also have to get b... Wed, 12 Jun 2013 17:14:20 EST May 10th http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5352637 I am having a really hard time. A few weeks ago I tore my right gluteal muscle, at least it felt like it tore when it happened. it still hurt so bad and I can't do any lunges. This week was a break from bootcamp, so it has been over a week since I exercised. the butt still flipping hurts. New round of Bootcamp starts on Monday. I miss it sooo much but I don't want to hurt it anymore. Work has been exhausting and I find myself looking for excuses to skip the next round. I have made such progre...

Only a few thing I couldn't do lunges really sucked but I could do modified squats. OH and mountain clibers were a definate no no. WOW it hurt. WE did boxing drills and it was wonderful, <BR> Journaling and staying focused. Mon, 15 Apr 2013 15:04:21 EST April 14 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5323057 i have always had a real hard time remembering to log my food. <BR> So with Bootcamp, the challenge of journaling my food has been difficulu but i will say since Alex will be seeing it I have been more careful about what goes in my mouth thus in my journal. Bottcamp yesterday was awesome up until the point I pulled a gluteus muscle. When it happened it felt more like it wa being ripped but it seems to be doing a little better today althjough it still hurts a whole bunch!! It was only about ...

I need to add my running back in. I have the bootcamp part down to my routine, the food is doing ok, I just need to increase my cardio . I am getting better, higher endurance, better ability to make it through bootcamp. That kind of thing, Wed, 10 Apr 2013 12:53:58 EST January 26th http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5224469 Bootcamp this morning was a beat down!!! I feel every muscle in my body. <BR> I t feels so good to be working this hard, I feel like I am really putting in the effort. The food has not been out of control need to get it refined. Grocery shopping this week will be fruits and veggies. We got a new fridge so now all my veggies and fruits won't freeze!!! <BR> My knees are still achy and the lunges just kill them. I am taking glucosamine and chondrotin to help with it. <BR> <BR> Sat, 26 Jan 2013 14:16:07 EST January 21 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5217918 So I joined bootcamp and now th start if the 3rd week.

Pain in my one kneee still a bit concerning but the "good aches" in my legs are so much better and will be able to get past it for bootcamp. <BR> I know I had gained a couple of pounds since New Year's, stress I think with having Sean moving bac...

I ran errands and hit the gym. My usual machine of choice, the bike, was taken. So I went on the recumbant bike. It didn't hurt my foot, so I did 35 minutes. I then tried, just to see, the elliptical. WOW, 2 minutes of that was enough <BR> Still very encouraged by the scale. Feeling confident in myself. despite homefront issues, I am good.

I know part of it is that I have no appetite. And everytime I eat my tummy feels yucky. <BR> The stress of life I think is the root cause, actually I know it is. Once again I am faced with the knowledge I do not stress eat under major stress only minor stresses. <BR> I was going to go back to the gym today. But my excuses over took my drive( not a good thing) I have had one day off this week, today, so laun...

I just can't seem to find the energy after 14 hours of work and driving to go to the gym maybe one day. But I can hardly wait until Tuesday when I can hit the Gym. Maybe stick to cycling but if my foot continues to get better and better I just may attempt the tread again. <BR> Wednesday I will be part of the live audience for the Biggest Loser season premier episode. I can hardly wait.

But between the ice, the rest and the naproxen, it is feeling a little better. So seeing a few Spark buddies stories and some imorovement in the scale. Little motivators all around. I was in the process of talking myself into resting. " you could take another day of rest, after all you do work tomorrow and you want to be able to walk....everyone would understand...." But my ...

I hate it when I get like I did all last week. It seemed every which way I turned it was just hopeless. I am so glad I went to the gym twice last week otherwise I think depression would have taken it;s toll. <BR> I can't give up or give in. Keep trudging one day at a time, one meal at a time. Tue, 4 Sep 2012 22:59:03 EST SEptember 3rd http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5042584 The weekend went by soooo fast. On the go so much. not great food choices on Saturday but Sunday I did good. On the couch with foot on ice today, on my feet way too much the last couple of days. So today I am watching food closely and hoping to make it to the gym for some cycling and maybe some pool time too. <BR> Mon, 3 Sep 2012 14:36:43 EST Friday August 31st http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5039332 So I have a 7mm bone spur on my left heel. I have to keep doing hte stretches, ice, anit-inflammatory, ice, rest, ice ice!! While I wait for the whole HMO referral process. I did cycle earlier this week and no real change in the level of foot pain.So today I did 40 minutes on the cycle. Feeling a little better and not so beat down. Fri, 31 Aug 2012 21:34:43 EST August 29 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5036023 Can't believe I have slacked off so bad on my blog!!!! <BR> I am feeling FAT!!! havent' been able to do cardio on the tread ellip or clycle for two weeks. I do really well on food one day and then the next the little bad voice in my head gets the better of me and I just eat without taking into account calories or portion. I have a dr appt this morning and really hope she gives me some answers and the OK to do some exercise. My 5K is on September 15 and I will complete it one way or anothe... Wed, 29 Aug 2012 12:24:31 EST August 20th http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5023920 Went to Dr today for my foot. No relief, just rest and naproxen and rest. I HATE TO REST!!!!!!!!!!! <BR> I want to get into the gym. Kids in school and I hve free/me time that I want to spend at the gym. But I do want to be able to run in September at the 5K so I will take it easy for now and remain diligent with my food Mon, 20 Aug 2012 20:09:52 EST Sunday August 19 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5022099 I am remaining focused. I really want to get out and run on treadmill or outside or even elliptical because I feel like I am slacking. I do know I need to give my foot a break in order to do my 5k next month but it is making it very very hard. so I am cutting my calories and watching my intake to help and make up for it. Sun, 19 Aug 2012 17:21:44 EST August 17th http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5020146 This foot thing sucks. <BR> On days when I work I really try to eat less calories because I have less time for structured exercies and the last two days were no exception.Today there was a coworkers going away party and the pot luck they planned was NACHOS. I tried to eat in moderation, sorta made that one. Took the stairs going up as much as possible, no down. I really do feel more motivated than Ihave in a long time and really really want to succeed. Fri, 17 Aug 2012 23:46:43 EST August 16 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5018599 Ok so Tuesday I did 2.5 miles on the tread, run walk felt great. That night my heel became excruiating. So yesterday I did nothing but ice and elevate, still major pain. At work today I was almost in tears, went to see a friend who is a podiatrist and he gave me an airsplint. Feels better but still sore.. Diagnosis is Plantar faciitis( sp) soooooo gotta take it kinds Thu, 16 Aug 2012 20:45:54 EST August 13th http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5014519 Feeling very motivated and focused. Kids started school today so I now have my Mom time back, GYM here I come!!! <BR> I worked the last three days and didnt' do any prolonged exercise program but stairs and lots of walking. <BR> Tue, 14 Aug 2012 01:01:10 EST August 10th http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5009659 So back to reality has been going full speed. I am failing in my attempt to make exercise time. Wednesday was work and yesterday was a dentist appt that ended up in dental work, to Jr High open house for my daughter straight to a business meeting for soccer and then to a team meeting for soccer. <BR> So today I am hitting the pool and gym, NO EXCUSES Fri, 10 Aug 2012 11:52:26 EST August 7th http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5005907 It has been 8 days since my last confession......hahaha. <BR> Texas was awesome and to share it with my Lolo and Susu was awesome. All three of us are somewhat health and exercise conscious, so we waked everyday and let me tell you the hills around her house are brutal!!!! We also hiked the length of the dama nd back .8 miles each way followed by a 2.5 mile hike along a nature trail full of steps and ups and downs. We rafted on the river which although relaxing still took some exercise. I fe... Tue, 7 Aug 2012 23:04:16 EST July 31st http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4995152 Yeah Vacation starts today!!!! Then Texas bound in two days. <BR> <BR> I had a nice run at the gym only two miles before cleaning spray set my lungs into a little tailspin. But man it was a great sweat. The humidity here is bad today, for California anyway, and that made it even harder on the tread. Gonna do one more run tomorrow morning, packing my shoes so I can run in Texas too. Tue, 31 Jul 2012 17:45:57 EST July 29 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4992191 Did well on the food front all weekend. No structure in the exercise dept because of work, however lots of stairs!!!Still emotional junk, who doesn't right, and not doing the emotional eating angle. I think I use to, but now i have no appetite while feeling like this. ....................

Worked Tuesday and took the stairs. Today went to the gym. I only did cycle because I can't put a shoe on my lefct foot. Messed up my b ig toe and now it hurts to touch. <BR> One week til Texas, focue focus focus.
