I've been doing a total body workout one day and yoga the next for my morning workout.
For the evening workout I do dancing and ballet-style work.

It has helped immensely with the DOMS.

You know it! LOL

2 weeks ! You must put them through one tough workout :)

My legs hurt so bad in the morning after laying flat all night or when I've been sitting for a while and go to stand... It's like OOOOOOOUCH... they're gonna rip LOL

But I really hope to get past this constant pain and find more energy at the end of this "rainbow"

I believe it!! Last month when I started lifting again my legs hurt for over a week. Ack! Chairs and stairs were my enemy 2 weeks in a row.

Take it easy and don't overwork those muscles Girl. Getting healthy should never lead to injury. One Day At A Time!! You'll get there.

Hey there :) thanks for the encouragement. Spark is so wonderful cause no matter how many times we fall off or the wagon just plain leaves us in the dust - you're all here to try and pick the fallen ones back up THANKS :)

I bought the SB Supercharged. It's good - got up to chapt 5 so far. glad they had that chapter in there about taking it slow and not overdoing the exercise. Cause it's so true... sometimes it's like you go from computer potato mode to full on athetic mode and thats not good... All or nothing isn't the answer. I don't want to hurt myself or burn myself out. So I'm gonna take it one step at a time. I did work out in the yard this weekend. I'm soooo ultra sore from that. (first work out) :)

Can't wait to read on and start to wrap my mind around this... for my life... not for my looks.

W E L C O M E back Victoria!!!

I just posted a Nutritional Exchange Thread.
It is the basic PORTION list.

South Beach is a good eating program.
The newer version is best - SB SUPERCHARGED....
It's really not a diet, but a way to live.

The first two weeks is a total walk-away from starches and fruits. Not easy, but doable.
It is a way to eliminate cravings for people who are carb-hooked.
The main portion of the eating plan is neither high protein, nor low carb.


I think we've all struggled big time this year.

Vic. I am so glad to see you are back!!! Please don't diet. Just eat healthy foods. I have a bunch of medical issues from that body building competition. All you have to do is stop buying junk, highly processed food and don't order/eat out more than 1x a week. Eat the foods God gave us and not the maufactuers creations. Drink water.

I'm having a bit of a battle with food and cravings now and starting this Monday I'm going to eat less processed food, drink less alcohol and eat less animal flesh. Fruits, veggies and whole grains will be my main food intake.

Have you seen "Super Size Me"? or "Food Inc"? Both documentaries are very inspiring to make better food choices. I highly recommend them.

Let's ROCK!

Okay - so I didn't listen to the pep talks that where given a few months ago.. I did give up.

I haven't used that stupid calorie counter since then. it's too hard to work with - don't like it at all... Just gave up trying.

So many personal things have gone on in the past 5 months.. emotional rollercoaster ride that's not fun.

about 3 months ago hubby said he would help me on the southbeach diet... but that never really happened. He bought a SB cook book but not the actual book to follow the diet. So yesterday I told him that we need to get out to the store and buy the actual book about the SB diet. That way I can actually follow it and take this crappy life I have and turn it around.

I'm tired of being unhealthy. tired of feeling like I'm going to drop dead. and tired of being too large to easily tie my shoes.. EWWWWW I hate that feeling!

WOW! That's a lot of calories in one day girl! I'm sure I eat like that every so often. It's amazing how the calories add up when we aren't paying attention.

You've gotten control before and you will do it again. You just need to want it enough to keep making it happen.

In order to quit your mayo habit you might need to go cold turkey. Stop eating the things you put mayo on and eat completely different meals so you aren't missing the mayo with a not as good substitute. Outta site kind of tactic.

Keep up the great work!

Victoria: Sounds like you're off to a great start - taking a good hard, honest look at what you're eating by tracking your food,having the facts stare back at you then admitting that you need to make a change! Sparkpeople always says baby steps, baby steps. Make small changes - rather than drastic ones - and keep tracking your food so you can see the number of calories go down. If you normally use mayo on everything, cut the amount of mayo in half, then in quarters, then eventually you won't even need/crave it.

I kicked my sugar habit by taking a few bites, chewing slowly because I really didn't want to be eating it and sabotaging my new quest for healthy habits but I was craving sugar. While chewing I made myself be conscious of when it just didn't taste good anymore, then I threw the cookie or candy bar in the trash. I felt guilty because of the waste, but proud because I didn't eat the whole thing. Eventually, it became easier and easier not to even take the first bite. When Christmas came along, and I ate more sweets, it was easy to go back to NOT eating them, because I had kicked the sweet tooth habit before and I realized how miserable sugar really made me feel.

Good luck - YOU CAN DO THIS!

Just woke up and another day of feeling pretty darn good. :) I like this! (thank you God)

Well my first day of tracking went "well" It's good and bad... I DID TRACK which is what I wanted to do... and I DID EAT my regular uncontrolled way, which is what I wanted to do. So THAT is good :)

BUT the bad part is what I found. Just as I suspected I ate way too much high calorie stuff - things that you just pop in your mouth as you walk past the kitchen.. sauces you add to meals... dips you use with snacks... the list can go on and on.. (don't forget about the oreo cookies too)

Well My calorie count was a whopping 3329 ! "Holy Cow" I must say. emoticon (wish they had a cow emoticon, LOL) And to think I was fooling myself saying "I don't eat THAT bad... why do I seem to be so freekin fat?"

Well I certainly don't really need to do this ANOTHER day. I will need to get shopping ASAP and also really really cut down on the use of mayo. I just LOVE mayo on everything.

Victoria: It sounds like you've got a good plan. It's great to step back a little and take stock in what is going on in your life, like you've done. NOW is the time for ACTION and it looks like you're ready for it. Just do it! We're all in this together!

Thanks Terri - I'll go to the library this week! :)

Woke up feeling pretty dare good today. Hope it will continue. set up my calorie tracker with all my personalized info yesterday and am ready to start tracking. I'm not going to really change a whole lot of eating habits just yet. What I think I'm going to do it track a few days of what I Just Eat... to get a handle on HOW BAD I HAVE BEEN - cause when you don't track - it's easy to think... "Oh I don't eat THAT bad - why do I just seem to gain weight?"

Gonna go weigh myself before eating and take my blood pressure too.

They should make the journey easier!!

Regarding SBD.....you won't need the original book...and you wouldn't need the newest book either(it just talks about HIIT exercise in addition to the SBD) The Heart Program is a description of what Dr. A. prescribes for his patients (he is a cardiologist)....check it out from the library if you would rather.....

The first 14 days only are low carb. After that it is healthy natural carb.

Any CLEAN EATING book is going to be helpful, but Dr. A. explains the entire physical/chemical processes and in language that most people easily understand.

Keep us informed !!

Today was a hard one so far. Hubby and dad left for CT this AM and then the baby proceeded to wake up with a Balistic Hissy fit. But we worked through it. right now she is back taking her afternoon nap. I'm gonna try to get to work here. I have two special garters I need to create. One for Texas bride to match the texas flag and the other made from the brides Grandmothers wedding dress.

I still didn't do any tredmill today. I should have done it in the AM but I just didn't. (being naughty, and finding it hard to really jump in) But I'm staying focused on my spark page and all that jazz...

Still waiting on my handheld calorie counter and the digital scale it's taking FOR EVER! I just want them RIGHT Now LOL

Anyway gonna go get going with work and hopefully some working out later too.

The year 2010 is here! It's time to take the challenge on of eating healthy and exercising. in the past it's always been with the beauty goal in mind of looking better. But This year it's about being healthy.

My healthy has really taken a down turn in this past year and I believe I have the chronic condition of Congestive Heart Failure. I have felt like total crap on and off for many months and I need to take my life seriously.

So after being a member here at Spark People for over 3 years - I'm starting over. New outlook - not about vanity but about health and FEELING well.

Happy New year everyone. Glad to be back.
