Day 2
I am semi pleased with myself.
Did 3 10 minute walks on treadmill.
Problem now is that tomorrow morning I fly to Bangkok.
The hotel has a great swimming pool so I need to make sure I get in and swim for at least 30 minutes.
Also diet will be problem as eating in restaurants

Day one week four.
Last week was a disaster. Virtually no exercise and diet only fair at best.
In the past that would be an excuse to start over but this time I am going to move forward with week 4.
I have to travel on Tuesday through Thursday but hotel has good swimming pool and workout room. I will manage to get exercise but diet will be hard to control what with business lunches and dinners. Fortunately I don't drink so can eliminate that as a temptation.

Well, this has been one tough week!! Trying hard to hold on. Not a lot of progress. I've lost a total of 3 lbs so far but I have been more consistent with things like eating breakfast, drinking all my water, taking my meds and tracking food and bs #'s.

OK, tracking food qd,

and walking each work day - the express buses are about half a mile from the house and so cover that twice a day - so walking at least five days a week

behind on the dumbbell toning workouts - but i'm a weight training expert so just have to pick the damned things up off the floor either in the mornings or in the evenings.

planning on no added sugar diet as well- but just today had a sugary soda, something i have not done in year and years.

Week 4 day 1

These next 4 weeks I really need to step it up! I've done better but there is lots of room for improvement! My main focus this week is WALKING and being less sedentary in general!
Have a great week everyone!

I had to change up my exercise due to a lot of pain in my neck and shoulders. I normally complete 15-20 min. ST with weights, but now I am working out in the pool and running on the treadmill. I have to increase the incline and speed for my heart to work at 85% which is not easy! I miss the weights, but for now I will do what I can to drop some weight!

My week 4 started off well. I increased the incline on my treadmill by 2, but I paid for it the next day. My bad ankle was swelled all day and I liked to never got through my simple, slow 30 minute treadmill. So, as a way to increased my exercise this week I've decided to add in some floor exercises.

For those of you who have read my posts you know that I have undergone a serious medical procedure last Tuesday.
As predicted by the doctor, the cortisone shots caused my blood sugar to spike upward significantly.
However, now being pain free it should allow me to do exercises regularly.
But, being in the middle of this challenge I decided this would not be a good "starting" point.
So, I've decided to start the challenge over tomorrow (Monday 20 July) and expect to carry through on all aspects.
See you then.

Woke up this morning and did painless morning stretches - yaay.
The doctor did warn me that the shots of cortisone would temporarily spike my blood sugar upward.
However the FBS I showed this AM was shocking: 254!
I will be extra careful about diet and hope it gets back to a normal range quickly.

Just got home from Bangkok. It appears that injection are working. As of now, about 36 hours later, I am at least 75% pain free.
No squirming in Airplane seat or rides to from airport.
It looks like I can expect further improvement in the next few days.
What a relief.
Now to get on a full exercise program and proper diet program. emoticon
No excuses now.

Week 4, Day 6...Only able to go to the gym in the morning because of doctor appointments this week but was still able to work out 80 minutes this morning (Elliptical and Treadmill). I will miss my afternoon workouts (60 minutes on Treadmill) until Friday. Yesterday my massage therapist commented that I looked like I'd lost weight. I was so elated...someone noticed! LOL I have a long way to go but with Spark I know this time I'll make it.

OLMANED...prayers coming your way! :-)

Thanks for the encouraging words. It will take 24 to 48 hours before we know if injections are going to work but doctor was very positive. He showed me the x rays and pointed out that the cortisone was placed exactly as planned. Fingers crossed. emoticon

Week 4, Day 5...

OLMANED: I restarted about 4 weeks into my plan because I wasn't sure exactly what I was doing. I'm glad I'm following completely. I believe in just taking things one day at a time and being thankful for waking up on the right side of the grass each day. Just keep taking it one day at a time and based on how you feel, keep pushing forward carefully. I admire you for putting up with the discomfort and still thinking positive. Good luck!

I considered re-starting this challenge again because up until today I have had tremendous back and leg pain which prevented me from exercising adequately.
Today I just received steroid injections into my spine and the doctor expects very good success as he put the cortisone exactly as planned based on MRI and X-rays.
However, I think I will proceed with this challenge and see if I can meet the parameters.

Week 4, Day 3 checkin...I lost another 3 ounces. Only change I've really made in the past week is to stop eating one peach per day and no cherries. Perhaps I was getting too much fructose...time will tell.

NEWELEEN ~ thanks. That's great, wishing you all the best. This is my last day here, onto week 5. I have a message into a diabetic certified person to call me (from our medical insurance) because my morning readings are always too high out of range. Throughout the day is great. Have wonderful day! T

I'm trying to focus on the fitness part of this challenge - strength training and cardio. Plus swimming once or twice per week. This is the challenge part for me. Will be working from home the next two weeks so maybe more time to focus on this. The PanAm and Para PanAm Games are in Toronto and our city will be wild with enthusiasm and traffic!

Newellen - looking out at the ocean while exercising! That sounds wonderful.

I'm heading to Week 5 - good luck to all!

Dear T-10...your gym sounds delightful. I, too, am blessed to have a full fitness center where I live, although there are windows looking out at the Atlantic Ocean. Not sure I could deal with no windows...no sunlight. South Florida is hot and humid so having an air conditioned facility inside is a great bonus. Now if I could just turn all that cardio into weight loss. Working at it daily. Good luck to you!

Sounds great, I'll have to put resistance bands as one of my rewards. I too do not like sun or heat. We live in the country so a mall is 45 min away in either direction, we live on a big hill with long driveway, almost one car passing so walking on it is out, and the road at the end of the driveway is a highway with no sidewalks.

When we built our house, we also built a big building with no inside walls behind our house. We put in an indoor/outdoor carpet on the cement, a pellet stove, basketball hoop, a removable big pole for nets (volleyball, badminton), anyway it is now a gym. So I'm a lucky girl to be able to walk in the gym. It rains a lot here so it's also nice to have sports & ping pong/pool/air hockey year around. You would think I'd be in shape instead of 295 pounds! I really am very fortunate to have easy access to everything I need to exercise (also wt bench, wts and dumbbells, jump rope) and a hot tub to swim in and relax in. Laziness and overeating caused my obesity now I'm making a effort to be a daily exerciser and eat better.

Worked hard using my resistance bands yesterday - should probably not push too much - I don't want to develop resistance to resistance bands ( sorry for the pun!)
My elder daughter also used my bands for a workout - that was wonderful to see. I love the fallout of healthy living for the rest of my family.
So things are going pretty well except for walking. I don't like the sun or the heat so will try some mall walking or evening.

LOL Sandra ~ we'll just keep each other moving! I was invited to join a private group on Facebook by one of my friends - they check in daily to keep each other accountable and motivated so I joined in. Many of them are doing "Beach Body" eating and workouts - does that tell you something or what!!! Ha ha ha, yep fit people just staying fit! We'll be there someday too.

Thanks T. How frustrating regarding morning highs! Do you snore at night or have obstructive sleep apnea? Sometimes, that releases adrenalin at night which increases BS in the morning. I guess as long as HbA1C is okay - individual BS not as critical.

WooHoo Sandra! I've always had a high morning blood test around 150 instead of 80 to 120. I've tried eating later at night and I've tried lifting some weights before bed. Neither worked - exercising before bed make blood test higher in the morning. I'm going to try taking metformin with my last snack of the day (around 8pm) instead of at dinner (around 5pm).

Thanks to my SP friends for the support on my "I don't wanna" day yesterday.
I went to the pool and swam 12 laps - also did 20 min of water exercises; did the 20 min resistance band video and 9 min upper body video.
WooHoo I'm back!

Feeling blah - don't want to do anything.
If I take out my new resistance bands and play with them, does that count for something?
Don't feel like overeating - just don't feel like exercising or moving.

Week 4 Day 1
Your post inspired me to want to do better on exercise this week. Last night my son made cinn rolls and my husband had a bowl of ice cream with chocolate syurp - I choose NOT to have either and make myself whole wheat toast with butter and sprinkled in cinnamon - tasted great and let it completely satisfy me - hurrah! This morning 2 cinn rolls on counter so I got the ladder and put them on top shelf of pantry. Easily within reach of my 6'3" son but out of sight and out of reach for me. My goals will be reached by these moment by moment decisions! Have a great day! T

Strength train emoticon ended week with 2 sessions. Will try hard for 3 sessions next week

Cardio emoticon 5th session this week!! Went on a cool nature walk with my youngest son!

Track all food emoticon 5th day in a row! Unfortunately this one was WAY over, which also led to the following day's calorie binge.

Limit Sweets (NO sweet tea, 5 meals this week) emoticon Did more than 5 meals!

Read article emoticon

Overall, good week. The weekend was tough. I'm thinking my hormones still aren't right after my hysterectomy. I've felt very PMS-y Friday thru Sunday. Hoping week 5 has me more stable!!

Track all food emoticon This is super important since I won't be able to workout for 2 weeks

Limit Sweets (NO sweet tea, 5 meals this week) emoticon I'm substituting crystal light for my tea. It is sure helping with the calories

I gave up tracking the other habits (snacks & eating at home).

WEEK 4 - Day 4

Did my 2-mile emoticon around the local hospital this morning. Cold north wind!

I cooked yesterday and got all of my food tracked. Still staying in range.

So far today, things are going well. Oatmeal and blueberries this morning with almonds. Greek yogurt and blueberries with almonds for lunch. I think it's emoticon tonight. Yum!

Everyone emoticon

We are at the kids and grandkids emoticon and have not had Internet service for a day.

Anyway...
Completed 2 miles of walking this morning. And enjoyed(?) the resistance band video. emoticon Yes, I really did!

The weekend will be a challenge emoticon but I am hoping to make some time to get in my exercise. Maybe during naptime.

WEEK 4 - Day 1

Started the week by leaving at 4:30 a.m. emoticon for a trip north. We are in a motel tonight.

I walked every time we stopped. Managed to get in a 20 minute emoticon at the motel and an arm emoticon routine. And tracked my emoticon as best I could by guessing at portion amounts and making the best choices I could.

Another day on the road tomorrow to destination. WooHoo??

Fruit is always my best option for a sweet snack, but I also like a serving of chocolate soy or almond milk to really boost the "treat" feeling.

I ended up crashing again last night about midnight, and perked myself back up with a small Hershey's bar & a few Kisses, so my fasting was quite a bit higher than usual. Numbers have been low, but good for the rest of today.

I need to ramp up my exercises. Plan on a 60 minute walk outside today, and some stretching, TAI CHI, and light weights.
