Took a step today on this journey to healthy living. Dusted off the recumbent bike, put batteries in it and rode for ten minutes. I also drank two glasses of water (I really struggle with this one as I only drink coffee and Crystal light throughout the day.)

Gntee- you are absolutely right about each day being a new beginning. emoticon

Today is Wednesday a planned rest day (1 day/week) but feeling guilty anyway.
I really miss bicycling but my balance has gone south and stationary bicycles just aren't the same. No change of scenery and no one to stop an talk with.
So, much to my dismay, I am considering the purchase of an adult tricycle.

I had planned for a light cardio day today of only 10 minutes as I felt I needed a bit of a rest. I kept the speed fairly low but tired very quickly. Wasn't until I got off treadmill I discovered that I had raised the incline to 12 degrees. So a good day all in all. Going to do a few crunches now and some calf and quad extensions.
See you all tomorrow.

Day 3 of week 2.
Feeling semi-proud today.
Saw my endocrinologist this morning and he was very happy with my FBS (146) after he took into consideration my recent cortisone shots. We expect by next check it I will have it where it should be.
But the real reason for feeling good is that after spending most of the morning running errands and then using work as an excuse for as long as I could (I work from home) I got myself on the treadmill for 15 minutes which is my target this week. However, I need to add some strength exercises too. Did them on Sunday but not yesterday.
No more excuses - I can always find 15 minutes.

I realize that one of my major problems is that after dinner I usually lie down in bed and watch TV.
Going to try something different starting today.
This needs to be a life style change.
1 -- will take a leisurely walk around our garden and play as best I can with our Golden Retriever who is always looking for someone to play with her.
2 - I am also going to download some e books and sit in a chair (not lie down) and read before going to bed. I know still sedentary but better for brain and sleep.

Day 1, week 2.
Okay - finished week 1 doing just the minimum to follow program.
Time to step it up a click.
I have done it before and I can do it again.
It's not about will power.....it's about won't power.
I won't eat that donut, I won't find excuses not to exercise etc.

week 2 day 2
fell victim to some peanut m&m's...again...but this time i only had a few that were left in the bag. I know now not to buy them in the first place. If they aren't in the house I don't really think about them but when they are here they call to me!!!

went to jazzercise this morning then did a very leisurely after dinner bike ride for about 20 minutes. All in all it was a good day! Oh, and by the way if you have am Island's restaurant near you try their veggie tacos. They are DELISH!!!! and only 460 something calories. They're filling and so satisfying and after i eat them i don't feel like i need to lay down and take a nap.

good night everyone! emoticon

Week 2 for me! I have increased my cardio and have started measuring my food. Today I am going to walk/run on treadmill and cut my lawn. I have also decided to eat my larger meal at lunch time just to give the food a chance to digest before I go to bed.

This week two of the challenge for me. I've workout four days already and will go tomorrow to do my 1 hour treadmill session and the upper body and abs weights.

I also refused to go out to eat with my mom on two occasions. Cooking at home for me isn't hard. I love to cook, and experiments, but this week I stuck to some old recipes I knew. I made mexican pizza's, which on has about 30 grams of Carbs. I also made some baked chicken and used it to make a homemade chicken salad.

Next week, if I can locate all the ingredients I need, I'll be trying out some new recipes.

I know it is only two days but I am hoping it will become a habit.
Did the same 15 mins on treadmill but today added crunches, modified pushups, bench presses (25 kg) and tricep kickbacks with dumbbell.
However, I strayed from diet and FBS went up.
Today is going to be a good day.

Day 3, Week 2:
FINALLY!!!!
Got off of my rear end and got 15 minutes on treadmill. Used a program that varies the speed and incline.
Don't know how accurate the built in computer is but it tracked .75 km and 58 calories. Heart rate reached 122.
Still a long way to go but I am happy that motivation seems to be kicking in.

Upped the workouts last week. Adding aqua aerobics and step zumba to the routine. Really burned some calories and helped me to sleep better. sleeping better is supposed to also help with weight loss. we shall see.

On to week 2! Last week, I really upped my exercise. Consistently did 1.5 mi 5 or 7 days. No weight loss, but morning sugar levels better (also started a new med.) I need to eat less, I think that is why I'm not losing weight. I keep hoping the exercise alone will help.

Week 2 day 3 checking in. Trying some new recipes today. Feeling good.

OLMANED...sometimes I just sit in my lounger and raise my legs up and down to make sure I'm getting some kind of exercise. I'm lucky I have a gym where I live but sometimes I don't feel like getting out. Also try just putting your arms out straight and rotating them. Please don't get discouraged...you had success with your diet! Baby steps... ;-)

Join me in moving to Week 3. My local leisure pool didn't have swim time this week. Not sure why. This is last week of school in Toronto. I need a pool with accessible entrance.

Congrats on weight loss again!

When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.

week 2 - Day 7
BS 5.3
Learned my HgA1C was 7.3 - better than my previous but next goal is to get below 7.0
Pain in knee becoming less.
Yesterday, I kept thinking about wanting to eat - an extra banana, a bowl of Cheerios, a piece of cheese - I was trying to figure the reason for this as I was eating well in accordance with my plan. I used the strategies I learned on SP for emotional eating and seemed to help.
Didn't do any fitness yesterday either.

When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.

Week 2 Day 6
So glad your knee is better. I ate too many carbs that day and could have done better. Yummmm your daughters cookies ~ great job having just one, how many would you have had in the past? Last night was my mother-in-law's birthday. She has dinner at our house on her birthday. I make apple crisp for dessert with vanilla ice cream. I didn't have any because of the very high sugar content.

My fasting blood sugar is still high, it is 146 this morning - suppose to be between 80 and 120. I haven't ate anything with sugar for a long time however the carbs in food turn to sugar so trying to limit them to 270 or below a day. I decided to test right before bed too. Maybe my blood sugar is raising as I'm sleeping ?

Pain in knee better.
Tracking well - my daughter baked oatmeal peanut butter chocolate chip cookies last evening - had one only and tracked it - within daily calories.
I wondered whether I should ask her not to bake but she loves it - and I prefer homemade cookies for the family rather than store bought especially with rolled eats included.
This is not a regular occurrence - and I'm choosing moderation over deprivation.

Lots of pain but staying on track with meal plan - actually ate less yesterday as too painful to get to kitchen
Need to keep moving.
Thanks T for sticking with me - appreciate the support. What happened yesterday with you. Seems you have planned well for today.

Week 2 Day 5
I didn't do as well as I could have yesterday. Today is busy, going grocery shopping this morning (typically get myself a sweet treat for the way home instead taking bottle of water), helping a friend pack (taking my own food and plan on using the opportunity to exercise), mother-in-law coming for dinner (her birthday - I'm making apple crisp but plan on NOT having any instead sugar free pudding with whip cream).

Sticking with you Sandra, we seem to be the only ones around the same time. So changing to Week 2 Day 4 Today I'm hanging around the house so I'll TRY to get all the laundry done, clean kitchen, do walking, hot tub exercises and relax, tv watching, not overeat, have 12 or more glasses of water, track food.

The countdown seems like a very inspirational idea. I really appreciate the 'steps' of the goal -- things that are important to you all along the way.

For me, Week 2, Day 6, and I am on track with this weeks goals for workouts and meal tracking.

Have an awesome day everyone!!!
Does anyone else do a countdown? I'm looking forward to being "lighter" for the fair (I work at), New Year's at a whole new weight, my Birthday since I took a picture/weight/measured on my SparkPage Blog so it will be great to compare a year progress, and a wedding that I'm invited to, I'm looking forward to buying a dress for.

Looks like I am going to have to start over again next week. Writing this from hospital bed where I am with a urinary track infection. Antibiotic drip in my arm. Then hopefully, if I am well enough, I am off to Bangkok on Friday for a new MRI on my spine with hopes of finding a non-surgical way of alleviating my sciatic pain. I did have surgery back in 2006 which seemed to last about 5 years. Now pain is getting progressively worse but at 77 I have ruled out surgery as an option.
See you all next week.

Day 1 Week 2
Have a great day everyone!

Today is check in day for the Game On Challenge I'm participating in... last week l lost 6 pounds and 3.5 inches. I'm keeping track of food, exercise and everything here on SparkPeople and Game On is about daily things you do like: communicate with your buddy daily, drink 12 glasses of water, get 7 hours of sleep, etc.

I'm striving to keep up my daily 10 goals everyday which will cause me to reach my long term goals of weighing around 130 (currently 291) and be a daily exerciser.

I'm also tracking the days... 53 days until the fair I work at, 199 days until New Year's, 334 days until my birthday then 6 days later - a wedding that I'm invited to. I look forward to each of them being a healthier weight!

Week 2, Day 4 - Yesterday was a little rough. I had a carb binge episode. I want to remember how I felt, both physically and mental after it was over, so that hopefully next time, I will think twice before letting it happen again. Not dwelling on it though, not going to beat myself up repeatedly. I am going to recognize it as a habit I am trying to break and move on.

Joyfull72 - so glad to see you in week 2!

Week 2 - Day 2 This morning I found a cardio video to try. It was an 11-minute seated routine and I only managed 5 minutes. But it is a start. I found it made my back hurt, so maybe next time I'll try a regular one where I'm standing. My name gives a clue. I'm 72 and carrying a lot of weight. But then I hear on TV about the 92 year-old woman who just finished running a full marathon. Good heavens!!

Week 2, Day 2 - I am sore today. The last couple of work outs have been from SP. I searched for workouts with the generator, printed them, and took them to the gym with me. I am starting to really feel the burn. Its good, and I know that I will be able to work through it. I need to keep this motivation and energy going.

Week 2, Day 1 - Welcome to week 2 everyone. I hope that week 1 was a success for you. My goals for this week are to continue to bring my FBS down with a combination of diet and exercise, and to learn a little more about cooking/meals with T2 Diabetes. I think this will be a good learning week for me.

Keep up all the great efforts!!
