Its Hot Out!

I'm pretty much back on track from being sick. I walked outside 8 laps in the heat yesterday came home did the low-impact parts of The Shred boy am I sore today!

Today I walked outside too late in the morning for this time of year ugh...I ran into a friend of mine from the neighborhood and walked with her that made it at least bearable.

My left knee is acting ugly it hurts gonna use the RICE method this week and that should make it feel happy again we hope:)

Weight still holding in the 150's I'm trying to get motivated to lose the last 10 pounds once and for all or make peace wher I'm at.

Don't worry I love exercising so I'll always exercise no matter what the weight. Exercise helps keep me saner...

Well its lunch time and I'm off to have my usual turkey sandwhich....til next time try to stay cool. This week should be less stressful daddy went back home and its usually quiet online the last week of the month:)))

Back To Being Me

I'm still here finally well again I think I hope! Finished taking my meds and started working out easy and kinda slowly so far this week.

Sunday and Tuesday were walking in the park days along with bike riding afterwards. Even though it's really muggy here I couldn't stand being cooped up another minute so off I went. 8 laps around equals two miles and two time through my route in the neighborhood equal 3.2 miles so not to bad for a comeback.

Monday I did a short workout on my treadmill and I could tell my fitness level went down some while I was sick and from not running still logged 2+ miles in 35 minutes then a short weight workout plus I've done abs twice.

My dad is down from Alabama finally! hadn't seen him since last fall. I can tell he's been through a lot. Mostly we've been having a good visit he came over on Tuesday morning at 6 am and stayed for 3 hours and we talked about family issues and general stuff it was quite a what we call "A come to Jesus moment" I cried some he looked like he wanted to but didn't after all he's a man...My dad has been very hard on me and critical of me because I never told him about my depression and anxiety issues somehow I thought he could tell something was wrong with me but he said not he just thought I was lazy and didn't want to work a "real" job that blows me away that he could think like that about his own daughter very upsetting! He called me twice yesterday and on the last call I had a brownie binge with milk to calm my nerves...I love him hes my dad but he presses all my buttons! I told my husband this morning that if I was alcholic he would have to commit me or make sure I got to meetings again, since I'm way under and off the wagon right now....

I'm well again and I hope things calm down in the family and this too shall pass as my momma used to say...In the mean time today's a new day and I know better so I shall do better about my food choices and amounts...Todays workout done! Cardio plus the Shred and eating is good so far!

Saturday Checkin In

July is going OK nothing to brag about though....back down to 158 this am thank God!

Takin it a little easier no Shred lately just the basics of jog/walk or walk outside when the humidty is down enough and abs of course.

Food has been better cleaner with no binging or eating brownies etc...

Mostly I have been at my computer long hours doing listings since there is a sale on for sellers at eBay to list for free pay only if it sells...thats my life update for now.

How is your July going so far as we head to mid month already?

The Wagon

Last week I ended up working out 4 days which isn’t too bad just not my usual 5:)

This week so far I ran/walked inside on Sunday 2+ miles, then yesterday I did a easy outdoors walk of two miles with 20 minutes of biking afterwards.

Now I just have to quit baking brownies and buying pies. I don’t know why exactly but when I get in the 150′s I feel nervous or weird about it but I do then I self sabotage. I know most of you reading this can relate all I can say is I am working on it. I fall off the wagaon I get back on the wagon currently back on with a two pound weight gain back to 160:( ugh now I have to relose back down again.

That's it for now till next time....

Still Not Feeling It

I've taken a couple of days off in a row in the middle of my workout week since I just wasn't feeling it and now I feel a little bit better workout will resume soon. Weight is fine holding steady at 158 when I don't work out I really watch what goes in my mouth like a hawk:)

I saw this report on Yahoo this morning and thought I would share in case you missed it. Here is the link

Its very interesting a study done over 2 years with all kinds of diets the calorie level being 1200 a day and they all lost about the same amount of weight. I guess it really is about calorie in versus calorie out:)

Happy Fourth of July to all in the US who celebrate.
