Hi, all!
I'm still sick emoticon
I'm sick of being sick.
My DH has been good - making me soup, and buying me cough drops, and boxes of soft tissues.
I took a 2 mile walk today. It's mild out, though more snow is forecast for tomorrow.
Of course, I'm hardly exercising. I was walk/jogging 5+ miles a day.
I did some yoga yesterday.

Good for you, Bizi, in reaching out, and joining a fitness group. Yes, it's hard to make new friends - I've noticed that.
Yes, there are no health benefits from drinking alcohol, but plenty from daily exercise. emoticon
take care,
Maureen

I joined a meet up group, acadian fitness.
They meet for the first time tonight at 7 pm for an hour then I will go to the gym. I invited my girlfriend who I went to the movie last night we were just talking about how hard it is to make new friends. I invited her to join me since this is a way to meet new people. She may not be comfortable going. She has gained alot of weight this year. We both said we would like to jog run a 5 k this year and she wants to do the cajun cup again this year.
that is a 10 k that we did last year. I felt badly because I left her to jog on my own because I did not want to be last. Jogging went fine so I think I can do it. My legs are a bit sore from using the new arc trainer machine. It is self propelled so acts differently than a tred mill less impact on my joints better work out.

I know for me the alcohol plays a HUGE role in my lack of progress on the weight loss front... I have to make real choices about what I want more... 'da drink or 'da shrink... and with Cuba only 30 days away I have to choose 'da shrink emoticon

hi chelsea,
sorry this sounds like it has been so hard on you.
glad that your gp understood you and listened to you.
my hubby takes benadryl if he needs to sleep and drinks chamomile tea, sleepy time.
I take klonipin 1mg every night to sleep.

Hi y'all. It's been a bit crazy around here lately. The drama with my daugher's teacher kept going, kept getting worse and kept being unresolved. We now have an answer. It is not possible to switch our daughter out of there, principal has given her word that my daughter will be safe for the remainder of the year, teacher should not be hired back again for next year. Just trying to keep it moving, let go, accept the situation for what it is, and look forward to summer.

I will admit to some alcohol use to calm myself down at night. Not a lot, but it was my red flag. I had a HORRIBLE appointment with psychiatrist to discuss medicine options for acute overthinking. I have never been so misjudged or misunderstood so quickly. Met with my GP next day and felt HEARD and understood. I have some low-dose stuff to help me sleep at night occassionally as needed. Haven't had to use it yet.

Found some very helpful free guided meditations on you-tube. Some visualizations that have been helping me when the negative thoughts come a callin'. Helped to put some distance inbetween me and the uncomfortable situation.

At first my February tracking worked great. Then I thought, "Oh well, I've already blown it, so I'll just have a drink again today." Not quite sure....but I think I may just see what happens this month and focus on other goals. Major goal to focus on adding good again. Since this happened in early February, I have been in a holding pattern...just surviving. I'm ready to reach out again and focus on some new things.

Had wine on Fri, and Sat. mod. AF the last 2 days. My husband is confused. He said "I choose alcohol before him"? Not true. The me wouldn,t do that. When I'm drinking I don't know. I was really upset. Then we are lovey dovey? Going to psych tomorrow. All week back hurt. Chiro and a 10min massage yesterday, hubby too. we both were on moist heat, then ice.
Haven't been out of the house, I think hubby is afraid I'll buy some. I,m kinda afraid too.
Bizi, you are doing good.

take it easy suzzieq!
Thank you sue spa!
Last night I went to the gym and used a new machine to me. It is called an arc trainer. like an eliptical(which I tried but bothered my knees) but with as much incline as you want. I was at 0 incline and it worked my thighs. the staff said it was more like a stair master. I went for an hour and it was indeed a greater work out than the tred mill. My heart rate was around 140 bpm. IT said I burned 500 calories in an hour...don't know that I believe that or not. The only bad thing is that my right big toe joint (injured a year ago)started bothering me if I was not careful with it.
I want to eventually be able to jog a 10k. (Last year i mostly walked the 10k but jogged the last mile or so) I made an appointment to see the trainer anna on wednesday night at 7pm...I will talk to her about what is best.

At least 4 inches of snow out on our decks and driveway and still snowing. I guess I'm just waiting until it stops and then I'm hoping to get out there to tackle the project of clearing it all off. The wind is suppose to pick up and that means blizzard conditions and lots of blowing snow. Schools have been canceled for today and that's good with the ground blizzard expected. My leg is still burning from my IT band issue yesterday. Can't believe I was down with that pain ALL day long. Very sore today and hopefully, the pain doesn't increase today like yesterday. Just decided to sit and watch the Today show and see what news is out there.

Got up at 8am to read the paper and take a shower. 2 cups of coffee and ate some left over chicken and a pear, because it needed to be eaten and I was a bit late for my 10am appointment.
lunch at 1130, bowl of spinach and lentil soup was very good it also had brocolli in it, yummy! Stopped to have a couple extra cups of coffee later in the day. Saw 3 clients today, easy day.
For dinner jeff and I split a very thin crust supreme pizza, about 500 calories total for me. A couple of slices of sharp raw cheddar cheese. then a green peach cranberry juice smoothie. 7 veggies and fruits for the day.

last night I went with my girlfriend to a support group meeting called connections. Run thru NAMI.
there were 20 of us there and spoke just briefly about myself, did not want to say much really just there to watch to see how it was run. My girl friend did not say much either. They used a timer to limit what you said it took 75 minutes to get all of the way around the room, then I had to go baby sit for my girl friends daughter.
I just decided that I am going to the gym because I am going to see 50 shades of gray tomorrow with a friend.
thanks for your support and for reading my post.

Emily and Bizi, thank you for your support.
I know I'm getting overwhelmed and frustrated and am really getting into bad habits to "blow off steam". I will work on that!
Helene, it's nice to see you popping by... I can only imagine how busy/stressful/different things are. Your Cuba trip is coming up soon, so I hope it'll get you a wonderful change of routine and some enjoyment.
I hope to spend some more time on this board, as well as others.
I've got to learn NEW HABITS if I'm going to make some leaway on losing weight emoticon

I'm so sorry I haven't been as present here on the boards of late. I find life has been like a whirlwind these days and I'm seriously in need of some 'down' time... Stuff with my daughters, emotional eating/drinking, adjusting to having a regular 'guy' in my life...

I really am not doing well with being AF and I need to get a grip on this to feel like I'm in better control of things again.

It's our fiscal year end and time for many things to be completed - including wrapping up my volunteer work as Chapter President and hosting our 50th Anniversary celebration on the 20th. I'm so looking forward to April 3rd when I fly off to Cuba...

Here's hoping I will finally succeed in getting an AF day in (I only had ONE day on Feb 2nd last month - yikes!)

Brenda- I agree with Bizi you do so much for your family and I am sure they appreciate it. You probably just needed some escape time. I hope you feel better soon. Ice/Heat? and have it looked at maybe? emoticon
Well I hope being AF will help me lose! I gained a bit back and got to get to work! oddly enough I find when I am AF I don't come here as often but I think it is just that I get busier. So the bottom line is that even if I feel ok with even quite a bit of alcohol I am better without it. I am considering doing my own personal challenge and may blog about it. If I work my program consistently I should be able to get to goal by mid August...
Anyhow- if you don't here from me don't worry- I am just busy with real life stuff!!! emoticon

good morning,
I've been avoiding this board, but now that I have 7 days AF under my belt I feel better about myself!
HOWEVER, even with not drinking i have not lost even an ounce! I am so discouraged! I usually can lose 1-2 pounds in a few days when I stop drinking, what is going on????
I think the more I think about dieting the scale goes in the other directions!

Good morning everyone!
Finally my headache has disappeared but my neck is quite sore... delay onset of muscle strain, I would guess.
It's almost 4:30 am and I've been awake since 2am... decided it was time to get out of bed and get a few things done before I go to work.
This getting older has really messed with my sleep! Often, I wake up in the early hours of the morning and don't get back to sleep.
Anyone else going through this too?

hi brenda, you work hard to make your family run smoothly. I can see that.
sorry about your head injury, if your headache doesn't go away consider going in and having an exray done.
hi elle! nice to see you pop in,hope you are well!


Started off the day with organic freshly ground coffee, heavenly. ( it is actually cheaper than the regular coffee that I was drinking but much fewer pesticides)
Went to breakfast had 3 scrambled eggs with spinach and a side of black bean salsa on top of the eggs, with a side of brocolli. Delicious! Came home and had an organic very ripe pear.
very juicy. That makes 3 veggies and fruit for breakfast! I am trying to eat better.
Made another pot of coffee, I use pasture raised half and half cream and stevia to sweeten my cofffee.
Plan is to do paper work, I am always behind, think I will use the timer again. Hope to scrub the kitchen floor too. It is a rainy gloomy day perfect for staying in and getting some things done around the house and office.

Oh boy... not feeling good...
I definitely overdrank yesterday... vodka... still have a splitting headache, possibly a head injury. Not related - while walking with a sober escort, slipped on black ice... impact on tailbone then head... still have a headache in afternoon, but usually would have gone away by now.
True confession: I got stupid drunk yesterday... DH still loves me, as do my kids... sometimes I feel I'm not worthy... sometimes I feel like I don't get enough recognition for all I do, especially our special needs son (youngest).
I hope I make sense...
I'm posting this because I'm sure there are others on this board who are having difficulties... you are not alone.
My current concession is to stay away from the "hard stuff"... beer and wine from this day on... it's not giving up alcohol.

Maureen-There is a book called the Tao of Pooh- you might have read.
My sis is an angry drunk.
One time at a wedding that my DH decided not to drink at but to be designated driver and I had had a few my nephew said I hope you are driving him home- referring to his Uncle. I thought he was making a joke at first but yes I was not slurring my words or anything after I guess it was about 6 beers at that point. I said no! don't I seem drunk and my nephew said not at all...My DH may have been doing his drunk guy act too. It is convincing. He calls him Larry. BHe has a couple of other people in there too... emoticon
BUT I get a bit bloated and enough is enough I am happy for the break- like the team name says- Cutting Down the Booze(Calories!) cuz that is what I need to do! And I need to use everything I can I am glad you had a laugh!
Bizi- you are doing great!

You are very funny, Emily!
Winnie the Poo, indeed! I've been giggling over that.

Humor is about timing, and, delivering the unexpected. You have a knack.

2 bottles of wine.
Woooh! I would have passed out, and been sick. Yet, you get up the next day, and felt just fine.
How interesting!

My older brother has a huge tolerance for alcohol. I have watched him down pint after pint with nary a waver, or slur of tongue.And drive home safely.
My dad, on the other hand, got drunk quickly and did, and said really stupid, and embarrassing (and dangerous things). I remember him walking out into the road in front of fast moving traffic, and holding his hand up like her was a traffic cop so that we could cross.
He got violent with my mum too.
Shudder.
Bad memories.

We each find what works bes for us, hopefully.

Be well, and thanks for the laugh.

oh! I thought you were asking which one and Aristotle talked about moderation in regards to happiness (in the Ethics book- good cure for insomnia) and then there is the Pythagorean cup-which does not look like fun to me!
But I see you meant the quote and I would not be surprised it someone else is credited with it as well....but I do not know. It certainly was not Winnie the Pooh unless he learned his lesson after being stuck in the window. Condensed milk and honey indeed!
I have been cleaning and organizing today to get ready for March or Marching on.
I ended up drinking a couple of bottles of wine (one from Portugal and one from Spain)last night and after a glass of water this morning was fine business...perhaps that is a bad sign!
House of cards is awesome but I think I will wait so I can see them with him as he just loves it and will be back tomorrow.
emoticon Bizi- that was nice of you to say! emoticon
Also - I LOVE the library. I get Amazon recommendations and then get online to our library and request them. I have a whole bunch of color pencils books coming!!!
Wish I had the money to get to NY- one of my favorite illustrators is exhibiting there at the Drawing Center. Tomi Ungerer-

My DH says that I have a tendency to overdo - and I know it's true in certain arenas - exercise, and cooking for holidays in particular. But regarding the gastrointestinal arena, I have always tried for balance, and moderation.
I hate seeing people drunk - saw plenty of that, coming from the UK - and decided early on that that was never going to me me.
However, as I've said before, I was drinking way, way too much. Just not all at the same time of day! LOL! How clever of me. NOT!
Hubby just went off to whole foods with a shopping list. He's going to make me chicken soup - organic, free-range hens. I'm no longer totally vegetarian. Moderation in all things, like Plato instructed. Or, was it Aristotle?

premature!? even at 100 it can be premature. emoticon It is for me all I have.
I have been blessed with good genes that is about it as far as I can tell. I have dabbled with vegetarian food as well as paleo and other sorts of things... And honestly I have found moderation kills a part of me what spiritual people would call the soul I guess- I LOVE extremes. I am very interested in ultra running for ex. emoticon
BUT we all need to find what makes things tick for us. emoticon
If I did not like the feeling of being drunk I would not drink I think(I do not smoke pot)- as there are so many other things to drink and small beer or kombucha may be good for you?- brewing your own I mean.
- well I have been organizing all day and just came back from the post office where I dropped off a letter to a friend then popped into the liquor store at the end of the street with the change I found emoticon cleaning up and bought a bottle of Portuguese wine. Will make burritos and watch house of cards!!!
Life is good!
Next week I plan on making this place ship shape..my color pencil box was a disaster...

Did you guys read this:

http://news.health.com/2015/01/29/too-mu
ch-alcohol-at-midlife-raises-stroke-ri
sk-study-finds/

"too much" in this study means more than 4 oz of wine for women, and 8oz for men daily. It found that too much alcohol is a greater indicator of stroke that high blood pressure. This certainly is something to consider.
Additionally, another study (I'll send the link if anyone wants to read it) show that processed sugar is an equally dangerous substance - like cocaine to the brain, and a cause of so many health problems - including stroke.

It's great that you are in excellent health, Emily. Me too. Sugar has never been a problem to me as I've been a "health nut" and a vegetarian for years, but I love the taste of IPA beer.
I hate the feeling of being drunk though, yet, was happy to have a beer at various times of the day (like my English ancestors, who drank mead all day. Lucky for those who did as the water was polluted) prior to last fall when I cut way, way back.

I don't want to die prematurely, and I don't want to develop health problems. Thus, I will forever practice moderation in all things. That is my determination.

Right now, I'm sitting in bed and drinking gallons of berry tea - and peeing constantly! LOL! I guess this is a substance I can overdo for now. Doctor's orders.

hugs, Maureen

a whole day? this may be part of it for me. Water and a good breakfast and I am fine.
Sometimes a mountain dew and then it is like I did not drink at all.
And I'm not promoting drinking but the brain cells can come back and I don't lose whole days..so you are thinking well goodie for you emoticon I am thinking that 58 days is emoticon because I am planning on 70 and some of the time I am going NOOOOO but I need to do this. I do agree taht it will enable me to train harder. BUT I don't intend to have a couple of drinks when it is over...I intend to get quite buzzed! In a safe place of course...
We all need to find out what works for each of us.
and on a whole different topic my DD told me that Leonard Nimoy just died this morning. She sent it to me because Spock was my first crush so emoticon

Day 58 AF for me. I woke up today with a really bad headache for some reason, overthinking probably! As I was reaching for the ibuprofen, it struck me how many times I went directly there when I got up in the morning. While I plan on enjoying a glass of wine or two now and then at the end of my 100 days, NO MORE HANGOVERS FOREVER! I'm dead serious about that. Hangovers lead to lost days, lost brain cells, crappy food and for me, intense feelings of shame. That part of my life is gone.

Get better soon Maureen. Rest up.
and yes they are thieves...(but I used to be able to catch them and get the stuff they took back... I still can but may lose my grip as I get older..)
in other words-
Well gone are the days when I could drink a 12 pack and run a 10K the next day...not that I would do it on this ice. The snow has been pretty but enough! But yes- I remember reading Born to Run and loved the part about Jenn Shelton and could relate but these days I am more inspired by Rich Roll and I am going to read this too-

www.amazon.com/Never-Wipe-Your-Squir

sr
=1-7&keywords=ultra+running

Now I am 53 (54 in May). I can walk all day and lift heavy weights. I have no health conditions other than being overweight so sometimes it can be hard to do the all or nothing. However I am not one to drink one glass of wine most of the time. It does happen or 1 beer but most likely it can be much more and it now puts on the pounds if I do many days in a row.
In the spirit of the Spring challenge I am in I will be AF until it is over on May 21 which also includes my birthday and I will be fine with that. I am a leader of the team so I think it is important to get results.
I think I like to stay open to adventures and what life has to offer and sometimes a few drinks can go with that. Or sometimes a creme brulee. I am not going to live my life without bacon or chocolate or a grey goose martini! BUT if it at all interfered with my running or swimming or biking- then I would rethink it. I want it ALL!!! I think it is just a matter of timing. emoticon

Thanks, Bizi. Hi, Emily, Chelsea, and all.
Interesting about your psych appointment, CB. But I'm glad it set you straight anyway! You sound strong, and resolved.

Refined sugar, and alcohol are thieves of good health, and happiness! Really! They are both highly addictive, and contribute to a host of health problems.

I'm still fighting this cold - which has gone to my chest. And the injured part of my part prevents me from doing some movements. I had hoped to go skiing this weekend.
I'm going back to bed.
Have a good day, friends,
Maureen

I wondered how long not wanting drinks would last but I actually have not been keeping track. Has not been every day but alcohol became part of my calorie consumption again.
That will sabotage my goals for the Merry Month of May.
I kind of stink at keeping track so it is better for me to do without considering I have about 40 pounds to lose.
So I have decided it will be an AF March for me. emoticon emoticon

Well the end of the month is almost here and I've only had ONE AF day ... but no sense beating myself up. February is always a challenging month for me - the winter blues and so many 'memories' and heartaches.

Looking forward to the new month ahead and that much closer to my trip to Cuba (leaving April 3rd : )

Hi everyone. I had the weirdest experience today, but I'm learning to trust my gut again. I went to a psychiatrist (first time) to seek info about medication for anxiety or overthinking (more acute recently, not everyday). It was horrible! She wasn't listening. She pre-diagnosed me by looking at notes from my therapist (felt betrayed) and then didn't listen. She thought I was ocd by tracking how many AF/MOD days I was. WTF! That's healthy for me...keeping me accountable. Anyway...she doesn't know me and I'm just going to do what's best for me. My sleep has been coming back, there are way less risky alternatives to getting sleep and changing thought patterns than SSRI's. Just not my bag right now.

It's funny. The stuff with my daughter/teacher is still left unresolved (which I hate), but this meeting today really set me right. I am okay. This is a tough situation. It would be for anyone. It's weird and uncomfortable and unsettling and makes me worry about my daughter. Whatever! I'm going to keep doing my thing, exercising, actually doing meditations (not just thinking about it) and doing fun things outside of the house. Enough of these weird meetings!

Each day is just that,TODAY! An hr. I want to have some wine, but I,m frustrated, I forgot my meds last night, didn,t sleep. Now I want some wine. Going for a uretha test tomorrow. ugh.
On a good note, I got a nice haircut yesterday. Moist heat helps for falls. I,m taking vitamins. I,ll should be back sat.
