Day 7, Yep, I missed checking in on Day 6. It was one of those days. Two words, "car towed". It was a good day full of good news and "best case scenario" for certain situations. Still, it was busy, busy, busy. Part of the good news was I did not have any sugar issues, eat emotionally, or eat for rewards. What a day #6 was.

Today is already on a roll. I hope everyone else in the challenge is doing great!

Be Happy, it makes people wonder what you are up to!

Day 5 - I was furious last night because I was 11 carbs over my goal. This morning my scale was down one pound, so even though I know that is usually too small to measure, it helped me keep my perspective. I've been following the challenge guidelines except for the elusive weight training. I've made excellent progress even exceeding the challenge guidelines with the rest, so I'm not going to beat myself up over it. To be honest, I really don't know how to do the weights without aggravating my post-trauma arthritis, which is flaring up right now. This week I shall ask for help!

Day 4! My steps are finally back up where they belong for a whole week since my foot issues. Boom, problem gone! This is Saturday, and my carb intake for the week was excellent. I have been worried about lowering the carbs and having blood sugar issues, and putting off trying until the the point where I started this challenge. It shows that worrying doesn't do any good, but it certainly does create bad things. On a side note, I wonder if I am subconsciously putting off strength training, because my hands hurt. Hmmm...

Day 3 of Week 2 and I am on a roll! My fitness minutes are way up. Strength training keeps falling by the wayside, and I'm not really sure what to do about that. The yoga, physical therapy, and cardio are helping me get past some injuries and regain my energy, but they are so time consuming. I need to figure out how to fit in strength training.

Day 2 and I am so excited! I have been consciously making my health a priority again for a week, and I noticed last night that I am feeling better and unconsciously sitting like a pretzel. The past few months I have been slowly regressing, and I was so stiff and sore that I collapsed into a chair every evening. I didn't think I was making any progress with my physical therapy and yoga until I realized how flexible I was last night. This is so exciting! emoticon

Hello! emoticon

The accountability of checking in daily during Week 1 worked well for me, so I am going to continue with that here in Week 2.

Day 1 of Week 2 has gone well. I was too enthusiastic and overdid walking last night on my bum foot, so I used the stationary bike this morning instead. I still did a short walk this afternoon. The food is going better. Now if only the pounds would go away!

Struggling with exercise my bike pedal keeps falling off. Go figure.
I will venture out tomorrow to get some lock tite and fix it.
I have been tracking and got sick today so I will need to go to the Dr for men's.

Great! Sounds like a good plan. I went to the gym today, then signed back up with Weight Watcher's. They keep things low carb...I think it'll help.

article snippet from this week: "tracking your food can be an incredibly beneficial habit in regard to weight control, healthy eating and simply taking control of your relationship with food. "We have a tendency to forget what we’ve eaten throughout the day and to eat mindlessly from time to time. Writing it down or logging it is an effective way to reduce the mindlessness," she says. "It helps build your awareness of what you're eating, how much you've consumed and whether anything is missing from your diet."

emoticon nods... and I struggle doing it sometimes... it used to really trigger me until I realized it's just a tool to help me understand how much is enough and not too much... no one's gonna read my trackers... and it does help me figure out how much to dish up... so it's been a good thing...

the other part is when motivation evaporates or I struggle doing any of this... tracking can help me get real about what I'm really poking in my mouth... and it's helping as I try to come to grips with carbs... I would eat all sweets & treats... (aka way overeat the carbs and usually would dish up way too much) so the tracking helps me get a grip on eating enough, not too much, not too little... it's been a good thing.

and this week, even that wasn't quite doing the trick so added taking pics of what I eat so I can track that... decided to blog it temporarily... it has been helping rekindle the motivation to do it... and keep choosing foods that help my body fight diabetes!

wrapping up week 2!

this week, I had a physical improvement NSV - as a result of the daily/frequent exercise while doing this challenge - it was easier to step into and pull myself up into our truck! 1st time in a long time ~ more strength, flexibility & range of motion - from the ST! woot!

I want to explore stuff that helps me be able to do life better! reach, bend, up, down, walk, hope & skip forward! Onward!

moving to week 3 tomorrow! See you there :)

stress & emotional angst - it spikes some stuff in our body (cortisol? adrenaline?) that then spikes our bs and that sucks.

sometimes, the hardest thing is simply coping with the craptacular and sometimes all I can do is simple things... I like to think of it as taking mental bubblebaths - a few mins daydreaming the happy/places/times... furbaby cuddles... a good sleep if possible... a burst of movement can lift spirits...

it is really hard when we can't change the circumstance or the other person dishing things out (I think this is particularly true, like for nurses/caregivers and people who have to help other people)… so it's really important to take deep breaths, actively consciously "release" the thoughts... point ourselves forward...

I heard an expression today that I liked... it was to someone about releasing frustration

emoticon Go throw an orange at the sun! emoticon

Brilliant! snagged the thought - because sometimes, it just helps to throw something!!! the thought of throwing an orange at the sun made me giggle... it's a new thing/keeper idea ;)

kkkk… hang in! deep breaths! (hugs)

emoticon week 2 again, over the cold and feeling better! hope to focus on exercise stamina/intensity in Feb. I lost some ground while I was sick... it helped me realize again that I want to feel well and take care of myself as long as possible! I hate when I need help when I'm sick...

Checking in. Scales only moved a little bit I think my mind has been more focused. Drinking my water, exercising and I have been more on track and in ranges with my food.
Glad to see everyone checking in.

Beginning with week two doing my best......but I know I can do even better. Planning meals ahead of time is hard, but I do keep track of what I eat on Spark. Need to move more this week. I also have a cold and am not at my best. Luck to all!

emoticon great to see people here, how's it going?

emoticon i'm just wrapping up week 2 - came down with a cold on Sun... and decided to adjust my eating for diabetes instead of the things we used to do
-- stay in ranges for carbs for meals and snacks so I don't hike/spike my bs#'s from extra carbs from things like stuffing crackers in the chicken noodle soup, and so I don't trigger a voracious carb appetite.
-- eat whole citrus instead of juices
-- broth chicken noodle soups stuffed with extra non-starchy veggies
-- teas, non-calorie water/fluids

it's worked pretty well.

I had my 1st below 100 bs at lunch, after exercise on day 7, week 2... woot!

onward to week 3!

Keep going everyone - we're worth it!

yay Skimbro! emoticon

emoticon back again ~ it's been 5 months since I restared 8/8/18, and 3rd round doing this challenge. Today I am down 30 lbs and can move, reach, bend, stand and walk more easily... still working to improve health and especially to take care of this diabetes. Had a big hike in my #s this week and I am hoping to bring them back down... or will see doc... but the fret/scare is right back to where I was when I started and I so want to do what I can to help my body. We got this! Onward!
