Moving on to "EVERY Day"!
Recap: I am doing The FLEX Diet, which is in a book of the same name, by Dr James Beckerman (MD). There are three stages: "Today"; "EVERY Day"; and "YOUR Way." I started with "Today" on February 23, and it lasted for two weeks. Today I am starti... Read more
Things aren't going quite as planned.
I'd hoped to make my post today after I'd done my exercises and gone for my walk, but that didn't happen, so instead I'm posting before bed. *sigh*
I am finding it really difficult right now to follow plans (no matter how simple), and just ... Read more
Well, long johns sure don't help my legs stay toasty.
I need to figure out some way to keep my thighs from freezing when I'm out for my walks, though. It's so windy out here that if I'm walking into the wind, my thighs get really cold really fast. J has told me to wear this horrid face mask thing t... Read more
It's COLD outside!
My poor iPod measured how far I went wrong. It counted my steps right but gave twice the distance. So I thought I'd gone a mile when I'd only gone half a mile, which means that I thought I took a two mile walk and only walked one. ... Read more
A rare second entry today.
I really need to get to the pharmacy and pick up my medication.
I take 25mg Adderall XR every morning.
Except I took my last one on Saturday, and my refill has been languishing at the pharmacy - it was ready to be picked up Friday even... Read more
I started so well, but then things kind of went downhill over the weekend. I lost my pedometer on Saturday, which is saddening to say the least. At least it was a cheap model. (I decided not to bother with fancy ones anymore, since they stop wor... Read more
Saw the doctor yesterday.
I have high cholesterol. High BAD cholesterol. I am supposed to cut back on fats and add flax seed to my diet and exercise more and get another blood test done in three months. It's only JUST over where it should be, so it's been caught nice and... Read more
We ran out of water last week, on Tuesday. On Thursday, we got the cistern re-filled and found that the pump was broken because I didn't turn it off on Tuesday (because I didn't know it had to be turned off). On Saturday, we got a new pump. Yest... Read more
Moving is nuts.
We have been moving. We are sort of still moving - since we're unpacking.
Our new house is nice and big, but we have too much stuff - it seems like it is full of boxes! I'm sure we'll get things organized and put away eventually, but until ... Read more
Getting things done!
Well, last week was great. It was so nice to have some time with my brother. We haven't always gotten along very well, so it's always good to connect positively. I didn't track my food last week, though, and I didn't really exercise, either. I h... Read more
What a week!
I returned home on Thursday to a house that was three times worse than it was when I left. ACK!
J and I went out to the new place on Friday night to look around and check it out. It was pretty good, just a few things to worry about.
Sa... Read more
Happy New Year!
I have been having a lovely Christmas. I have been at my parents' since December 15, and I return home on Thursday (January 6). I find that I eat really strangely when I'm at my parents', and it's not really because they eat strangely. I guess i... Read more
Yesterday was Thanksgiving here in Canada, and J and I celebrated with my brother and his family. We drove down on Sunday afternoon and we had dinner together - turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes (PURPLE potatoes!), green beans, corn, and dinner ... Read more
Week Ten: Back on the horse?
I took a couple of weeks off from SparkPeople. Well, I mean, I read posts in my teams and tracked my food and exercise for the most part, but that's about it.
I've been eating mostly okay, but I haven't been exercising as much as I was. So ... Read more
Week Eight: Making up for not reporting in last week.
I'm sorry I wasn't around last week. Well, I was around, I just didn't post. Mostly that was because I was having a bad weekend/week, and I had to lessen my expectations of myself so that I could get through the day.
I'm doing much better n... Read more
