A few weeks in!
Thursday, February 16, 2012
Well I have been back now a few weeks. It's been so nice getting back into sparking and meeting up with my friends again.
I feel like I am doing pretty well. I am making sure to track all my food. That is a big one for me. So have done very well with that exept for one day I believe. I messed up bad one day this weekend. But have over come that. I even ate some gluten and now realize for me that is a big no no. It just bloats me out...makes me gain weight and makes me feel horrible. I'm still dragging today I think in part to my splurge. I have realized after that day that planning is the main thing that has to be done in order to make this work for me. I have to make sure to plan ahead and not let myself get to such a point where I will just eat anything.
My work outs haven't been great. I am walking. I bought a fitbit and have been using it. It's a fancy pedometer basically but it will upload all my information onto their website so I can see when I was sitting on my butt or when I was up walking around. I am trying to stay moving through the day especially when I am doing an inspection or something...doing side steps or leg kicks or something. I am still walking with my mom although this week hasn't been great regarding that. She had chemo this week and some testing so we spent some time at the hospital. She does have to have another biopsy but we are hoping that it is just scar tissue that they found and not something else. We will know next week.
I'm going to get Martin to put my treadmill back into the living room. It has been put up and not being used now for quite a while. so that is my new goal...get it out and try to walk on it daily if I don't walk outside. I did my measurements yesterday and they were NOT pretty. I have some work that needs to be done for sure. I am disappointed that I put that many inches back on but I really knew I had...just didn't want to admit it. But I'll keep working on it. I never gave up and I won't get to where I was prior to spark 2 years ago that is for sure.
This weekend will be a challenge for me. My sister and her husband are coming to San Antonio. The last time we were all together we got in such a fight that we were never going to talk to each other again. I could really be ok too if I didn't have to but for my mom I am going to go and play nice. I could probably deal with my sister but her husband will be another story. Not sure I want to be around him. But I promised my mom I would go and be nice and so I will. Hoping I can maintain my eating well there. I am not going undo what I have done these last 2 weeks in one weekend. Hope there is something I can eat at seaworld...:)
Anyway, you all have a great day! Hope you have a blessed weekend too!!! Keep up the great work!
