Week 2 Wrap Up!

Cardio emoticon 4 days this week

Strength Train emoticon 3 days this week

Eat only 2-3 meals out all week emoticon ended the week with about 4 meals out. But on 2 different occasions, I cooked dinner at home even though I really wanted to go out. That is a big step in my opinion!

Eat a healthy 100-200 cal snack emoticon

Glad to finally be out of Week 2. I did it for two weeks because I had some major obstacles the first time thru! Now, on to Week 4!!

Week 2 Check in

Today is Day 5 (week 2 & 3)

Cardio emoticon but did meet step count goal

Strength Train emoticon

Eat only 2-3 meals out all week emoticon only 1 on Sat, 1 Monday (super healthy though!!) & 1 on Wed. Monday & wed were after doctor appts, so it was hard to work around it. I DID make sure to cook dinner at home both nights, even though it would have been easier to eat out for both main meals.

Eat a healthy 100-200 cal snack each day emoticon

Today is Day 3 (week 2 & 3)

Cardio emoticon ended up back at the dr. I did do some extra walking while I waited for hubby to get off work.

Strength Train emoticon scheduled rest day

Eat only 2-3 meals out all week emoticon only 1 on Sat & 1 Monday (super healthy though!!)

Eat a healthy 100-200 cal snack each day emoticon no snack yet, I may have one later tonight or just skip it for today.

I've totally missed the strength training and need to get on the ball with it. That's what I need the most although I'm still in the "building stamina" phase.

Anita, please take good care of yourself! Sounds like you have a bit of a struggle going on.

After working out this morning, I am feeling pretty sore & crampy from my hysterectomy. I think I have went too fast recovering from my surgery. I am officially taking a break for a few days. This is so hard for me to do!! But I don't want to re-injure myself. Right now, I feel worse than before the surgery!!
I will be back at a later date to re-do week 2!!

Blessings!

Eat all meals at home emoticon

Today was NOT a good day!! I went to urgent care with a UTI (my second in 3 weeks since my surgery). Then, my 12 year old son twisted his knee really bad which necessitated an ER trip for a brace & pain meds. Waiting now to get into the specialist.

I've eaten out more than usual this week. I wonder of part of the reason is because I felt I "couldn't" because of the action step.

I'm going to press thru to week 3. I will try to incorporate some of the week 2 steps that I didn't do so well on. If I have a bad week 3, I will stay here for an extra week.

This getting back on track is harder than I thought it would be!

I woke up this morning at 3am, sore from my hysterectomy surgery. Decided it best to take the day off from exercising. I also want to eat everything in site (for comfort or to help me stay awake I'm not sure). But I decided to not worry about tracking food today since we are only "required" to do it 3 days this week. I also plan to stop by Chick Fil A for some comfort food!!

I've decided that eating out 2 meals a week is only 10% of my weekly meals. I can live with that!! So I will consider the week a success if I can eat out only 2 times this week. 3 times will be 15% (well within the 80/20 rule of healthy eating!)

Beginning Week 2 today (finally!!)

I believe I can nail the exercise recommendations & logging my food!!

My struggle this week will be skipping 2 eating out sessions/treats!! I do make 80-90% of our meals at home. Hubby likes a big sit down meal with the kiddos every night. We usually "splurge" and eat out one evening a week. I look forward to that night "off"!! Also, the kids & I usually go out to eat 1-2 times a week for lunch (we homeschool & sometimes the change of routine works wonders!!).

I'm not sure how to "earn" a win in this situation. Any ideas???

Here's to a great week 2!! I will update later with my exercise, food & hopefully a plan for eating out!

Blessings!

WEEK2 - Day 7

emoticon Completed Week 2 today.

Still planning my meals emoticon and staying in my range.

Got in 2 good walks and completed the lean leg toning video on the mat. emoticon And, NO, I do not look like the emoticon! But, at least I completed it.

I am a huge Lord of the Rings fan and I wanted to do the virtual "Walk to Rivendell" that I found on the SparkPeople website. So I invested in the SparkTracker a year ago since it tracks my steps and shows you the distance and calories you burn. That has been a huge motivation for me. I recently completed the walk and have started on the next leg. So the part I really have tried to work on has been the eating component and strength-training.

This challenge is being very helpful and the support and comments I get are so important to me.

emoticon to all of those on this journey! I'm learning so much.

WEEK 2 - Day 5

Walked 30 minutes and completed 2 SparkPeople toning videos.

Planned my emoticon for the next 2 days. Decided to switch my tracker to show Diabetes Friendly Meal Plans and tweaked them to suit what I like. Really like this option. Also, decided to use the Print option for Meal Plans and have them more readily available each day,

Setting a goal of 10,000 steps or more a day on my fitbit has really helped.Last night at 11:30 I only had 9282 so I got on the stationary bike and rode like a fiend and got 11,289 by midnight!!!

Food plan is going great! Because I'm trying to balance everything within my daily limits I'm eating more veggies and non-fat yogurt. I'm actually at lower end of calorie range most days and I'm never hungry. This has never happened before. Need to make more of an effort with exercise, because that's lagging.

Doing fine with the diet plan! I was even okay with a lunch out with DH. I "allowed" myself a piece of chicken Parmesan hold the marinara and just a sprinkling of mozzarella. 😊 Choosing mostly vegetables, I managed to stay within my budgeted calorie count for the day.

One meal at a time!!

I am doing well with diet. I am having more trouble with exercise. I did turn on some music to dance for 10 minutes which turned into 15 so that was good. I want to do that three to five times a week. I just received the Sparkpeople workout dvds. I am putting one in now. I hope it helps with my exercise mindset.

I am doing well adhering to a proper diet but just can't maintain motivation for exercise. Not sure what to do. Berating myself or telling myself that baby steps are okay is not working.

Last week disastrous. No exercise. Diet about 50%. Added 1 kg. Going to do better in week 2.
Great breakfast today. Oatmeal w/ banana, walnuts and cranberries and toast and coffee.
Now for some exercise.

Split up the 4 miles into 2 this morning & 2 this evening. I am going to try to do that everyday from now on! Have I mentioned that I HATE the ST video?!? Well, I do. That video is not made for obese diabetics! I bet the majority of the people that quit this challenge within the first 2 weeks do so because of that video.

Week 2: Day 5. FSB 129

Did my strength training today. Over ate which is reflected in my 210 blood sugar after dinner. I need to keep reminding myself that I really have to watch my carbs. Was depressed this week to gain weight despite my best efforts and my depression has been reflected in my eatng for the last two days. I shopped today for ingredients for three days of the diabetic meal plan and made some apple sauce muffins for breakfast tomorrow. Will post how they end up tasting!

Forgot to take my meds until mid-afternoon. I had a big dinner so hopefully blood sugar won't be terrible. Did my strength training today and have been able to push myself farther each time. I didn't exercise yesterday so need to be sure to hit each day the rest of this week.

The flu hasn't laid claim to me completely! I still feel pretty good, except for my head and throat, so I was actually looking forward to busting out a big day today. I went for the full 5 miles, and it was actually pretty tough! A lot tougher than it usually is anyways. I am praying for the strength to get another big day in tomorrow before I see my doctor.

Week 2: Day 1

FBS: 94

Did 2 miles today.
Drank 64 ounces of water.
Tracked all of my food.

I made up for yesterday today, so I actually walked 7 miles today...not just 2. This would have been a rest day for me, so instead I will just walk 6/7 days this week. I want to get 5 miles at least 5 days this week, but the flu may have other plans for me! I am the last in my house to catch it, so that makes me proud! I am hoping to be able to continue my workouts regardless, so I am planning on breaking them up into smaller walks 2x's per day. I want to do the ST video on M, W, F this week so that I am not trying to squeeze them in on my busiest days. Other than that, week 2 seems totally do-able!

Paid closer attention today to getting at least minimum carbs for meals and snacks after low sugar episode yesterday. Seemed to do fine. Test after lunch of 108. Did the Bollywood cardio workout tonight but it was hard on my knees so don't think I'll do that one again. Glad to make it to week two!

PREPAREMYTEMPLE - Your BS was definitely up today. Look back on your Nutrition Tracker at what you ate yesterday that might possibly have made your BS rise. This can happen from time to time anyway, but usually you will be able to look back and notice something that you ate that was the cause for it. It could even be caused by extra stress, lack of sleep, a medication you might have started, or even just not feeling well that day. Keep pushing and keep tracking your food intake on your Nutrition Tracker. emoticon

Week 2, Day 1

FPG = 123

This is one of the highest fasting blood sugar levels I've recorded since I started testing. I'm not making too much of it as I had a really off day, eating late, and eating foods that I suspect keep my blood sugar up longer.

We'll see what happens over the next few days.

Forgot to get more test strips...so no FPG.

But eating properly, getting exercise, and otherwise doing the right things.
