Count it All Joy

Its that time of year ladies and we need to count it all Joy.  Regardless of where we are in this journey of ours.  Whether we are trucking on with out a hitch, or if we find ourselves in the midst of a hic-up.  The ups will out weigh the downs, and the downs will provide us the means of appreciating the ups.  Not to mention --- the learning we gain from our small failures.  Learning curves ... all learning curves.

On the food front - I have let this week get slightly away from me. …

Trying to keep my head up

Hi ladies!  It has been a month since my last post and I'm sad to say that I haven't got my act together nor have I stepped on the scale.  All of my blood work came back negative which although is a huge relief, no auto immune disease!  It is super frustrating not to have a diagnosis and the doctors look at me like I'm nuts.  Ruling out all of that brings me back to my original theory of Fluoroquinolone toxicity which I truly believe I am suffering with.  I feel very defeated as my doctors…

It's been awhile

Well, it's been awhile since I last updated. Guess not a whole lot to tell. Things are still going well with the pregnancy and with life in general. I am still making it to the gym 3 times a week most weeks.Still flexing. Haha.

I am definitely putting on the weight (as I should be at this point) and…

I did not want to do PiYo tonight after work, but I did and I am so glad I did. I only have this week left to complete the 60 days. Eating was good too. I am looking into taking a yoga class. I really want to work on flexibility. LindaB has me wanting to do jogging again. But that won't happen until the weather warms up just a little. The downside of living in the north. I want to do snow shoe meet in January & a cross contry ski meet. There is a nature preserve here that offers these… Continue

Five Tips to a Healthy You

In October I started a year long program to become health coach; something I'd toyed with for years and can do now that I've retired.  Loving the classes heard Robyn Youkills speak today.

Thought her article in the Huffington Post was worth sharing:

Weigh in -

I got on the scale a bit apprehensive because I allowed myself to have several mini York Peppermint Patties & crackers this week. I had been so hungry and I just gave in. Hey, I am human. So anyway, I finally just got on the scale this morning and I lost 1.8 pounds!!!!!!!!!! Not that candy is the way to lose weight, but that all the hard work I did do did not come undone due to some candy. And the loss? Well it is enough for me to say no to…

Winter Funk

Oooof. Today was rough. I had to go in for training during the day, which is always rough on the nightshift. We were all a bunch of zombies, some of us coming off of a 12 hour shift the night before. I really question management's decision to train us during the day - are we really getting the benefits of learning anything? Would it be fair to ask a dayshifter to come in for a class from 8pm-12am? Just sayin'.

Been feeling so restless lately. First it is the winter blah's. Then comes… Continue

Week 5 and some Blips

Just completed my Week 5 - 5K challenge.  I just amaze myself lately.  I actually did 4 days this week.  I repeated one.  Tonight was colder then the others.  I felt it in the pace times.  But hey - I kept going.  From running inside the other night, I had forgotten to turn the GPS part back on so I only got to see how far I went tonight --- because I remembered to turn it back on.  OF course, it would be on the night I felt slower; but we did go 2.25 miles in the 34 minutes of training…

weigh in

down 3.6k/7.9lb I am very happy with what I saw this morning on the scales, I even said "Thank you" to them :)

I kept track of everything I ate with myfitnesspal. Also 7 days without processed sugary items (cookies, cakes, candy, etc.). This time it is easier and I haven't missed them at all.

I hope everyone is doing well. I want to apologize for not getting to other peoples blogs and reading their posts, I will get there!!!

Good Day for me

I had a good day today. Even though I did have some candy, it was minimum and I remembered the "you don't throw out the whole dozen eggs because you drop one" I ate a good breakfast,lunch and dinner with fruit & raw veggies as my "snacks" topped off with no after dinner eating & a PiYo workout, I think my weigh in on Saturday should be okay. Tonight my husband took me to our local park who volunteers string like hundreds of Christmas…

Conversations with the bathroom scales

 I have conversations with the bathroom scales...

"Here we go" as I step on, then I accuse it of lying to me " You lie".

Or what it is telling me is unbelievable "No way!?!".

I then step on again to make sure it says the same as the first time. Do I say "Thank you" to the scales??? No.

It appears that I do not appreciate the hard work they do for me.

Question Your Thoughts

A little more from the Daniel Plan.  More on shifting our focus.

Our thoughts change moment-to-moment; and because of that it is important to keep our thoughts in check.  Thoughts lie and they lie a lot.  They can dictate our mood and our behavior.  When we have negative thoughts - those thoughts can often control our behavior ... like overeating.

So --- do you ever question your thoughts?  Because if we don't check our thoughts, those negative thoughts which are LIES can…

I have been doing good with the eating lately. Not that I have not had my slips, but since I've begun to track & count calories I find that I am eating less. Or should I say that I doing more "conscious" eating. When I have to write it down, I sure think twice before I put food in my mouth. I am about 2 weeks from completing my 60 day PiYo program. It sure worked my core. It was a combo of pilates & yoga and trust me, you will…

I'm Running Ladies!

OMG - OMG ... I reached a new "no-mans land" today during my 5K challenge.  Week 5/Day 1.  Included a 5 min warm up walk, 3 min jog, 90 sec walk, 5 min jog .. yes a 5 minute, 2 min walk, 3 min jog, 90 sec walk, 5 min jog ... OH NO!  Not another one! a 3 min walk followed by a 5 min cool down.  And I did it!  I did it all and it didn't seem hard. 

Its a cold and rainy night ... too cold to run outdoors with the rain included, so we decided to meet at the YMCA and take to the indoor…

Week 4 Down

Completed Week 4 of my 5K challenge.  Ran day three twice.  So I actually got 4 runs in for the week.  Next week will start the 5 minutes runs.  I'm apprehensive, but looking forward to seeing if I am up for the challenge.

Feel so good with so much energy.  Food for the week was spot on.  With the exception of last nights dinner.  We had our carpets steam cleaned yesterday afternoon, so with all the furniture in the kitchen, it was easier to go out.  #2 son wanted Mexican and so ....…

Weigh in - no loss

I was feeling like I had a good week and then I got on the scale and that feeling got shot to hell. No loss. I swear to God that no one loses slower than me. But I know this and I just have to accept it. I am going to continue to count calories and weigh in once a week. I hope to see progress soon. I just can not understand why my body holds on to this fat. I have been tested for hypothyroidism so that isn't it. I might go get tested again. Ugh! It is just frustrating. I hope everyone else…

The past two days

The past two days have been pretty good. I did a slight comparison between WW and myfitnesspal. I had gotten to 1200 cal and still had 10 points to use. I like the barcode scanner in the app for myfitnesspal. I know WW has one but I'd have to sign up the cheapest possibly way "online" and it is still over $30 a month in the end. My hubby has been really patient with me when it comes to WW and we made an agreement that when I stopped going the last time I wouldn't sign up again. I can get all…
