Photo 101, Day Thirteen: Moment & Motion

So this is my moment of motion

  
My little sheltie finished her last green been. Being you don’t know her this is a big deal. She is my carnivore. It took her 45 minutes of me standing over top of her saying “just eat the beans Mollie.” (There were only 10)

I like how her mouth still looks like it’s moving.

Who knew….

So I have been walking again.  I know its bout time but I am doing this and feeling good about it again :0)

Last week I logged 28.74 miles and 66,620 steps.  I feel good about it too!

One step is better then one more second on the couch for me. I was going to skip it today and just sleep in but God had other plans.  I woke up from a crazy nightmare and thought well I’m up I might as well walk it off and I did!  Saw a beautiful sun rise.  I am blessed.

I am drinking more water again and eating better and am feeling good!  Started measuring again this week so I will get back caught up with that on my next blog.  Watching my BP.  I am on meds but my BP is way low compared to what it has been to get me on said BP meds.  I go to the Doc in 3 weeks and I am going to talk to her about that.  If it stays low I may have to adjust by calling her.  We shall see.  My BP after a 1.5 mile walk and a 25 minute bike ride in the humidity was 117/63  that seems a bit low but Im watching it.

Other then that life is what it is.  

I made zucchini bread from scratch.  Let me tell ya it was WONDERFUL!  Neighbors liked it and I am taking a piece to my dad and sister the rest well….its mine :0)

well that is my update…..till next time…….

Week Three

It has been an interesting three weeks.  First off let me just say that this is going better than I could have expected.  This week was a test.  There ware cookies everywhere at work and I only tried a bite of one. (talk about temptation) I pretty much stayed under calories all week. Most likely not today but I am allowing myself a day of what ever within reason.

But anyway to the point this weeks results are in:

4 pound weight lose in 3 weeks

-9.5 inches off my body this year already as well!

Hope you all are sticking with it!  This is our year!  We can and will do this.

This next time….

SUPRISE

Just a quick update….

I live in Ohio and it is just now starting to get cold and up until today I was not able to button my jacket.  I usually just threw it on because the wind here has been cold but today without thinking I buttoned my coat and WAAAALAAAA I could button it!  I started doing the happy dance and realized I was in the middle of the library.  YEAH ME.  May not be a big deal for you bit let me just say it made my day!

Just wanted to share!

Till Next Time…

New Toy

So I decided I was going to start using a pedometer.  It arrived today

It is set and ready to use.  I am going to challenge myself every day to walk farther.  I think this will keep me moving.  That and I will see just how far it is from my car to my first class.

Look out shoes I am going to be putting you to the test!

Till Next Time…

Doc update

Today I had to go to the doc and get my BP med refills.  Went better than expected.  My BP was great 104/74.  The best it has been in 3 months.  This being said the meds are working.  I talked to her about this life change and how I wasn’t sure if it was the right thing or not being that I hadn’t lost any weight in 2 weeks.  She asked me a very interesting question.  She asked if I felt better.  I told her yes.  She said is it easier to work out…again my answer was yes…..she said where is the problem.  Keep doing what you are doing and then you can adjust if you stop seeing results.  So I will keep controlling my portions, eat more veggies, drink more water, and keep going to the gym.  Not that I was going to stop I was just looking for another way to lose the weight.

SO tomorrow I will get up have some breakfast and then head to the gym.

Till Next Time….

Day 10

I have learned a few thing sense my last blog…..

I am not as young as I think I am….proven when I started another quarter of school. I am actually going to class instead of doing internet classes. As I looked around the room at my first class I am the oldest student by 14 years. The instructor has me beat maybe by 5 years. The second class I know I am older then even the teacher. But I can be young and hip right….LOL

Secondly, the Tapeworm, Tippo, has instructed me that if I don’t eat every 2 hours while I am awake he will cause lots of noise in my tummy and cause me to be grumpy. It doesn’t have to be much of anything just really a few bites but he is defiantly running my railroad.

I made it thru the funeral yesterday with out any major problems. Of course there was plenty of food around and I stayed away from most of the bad stuff. Really when Im sad I’m not an eater anyway. But I did eat a bad for you cheese bread last night only 3 little pieces. I had the calories left for the day but….it was a fail for me. I did walk for 45 minutes tho. Ill try and work it off tomorrow at the gym. I know I will not be perfect all the time but I knew better…I have a bad habit of taking 2 steps forward to come three steps back. I am not going to let that happen to me. I WILL MAKE THIS CHANGE!

There is lots of reading to be done for these classes. Lots of butt time I am afraid. SO I am working out a schedule where when I ride the stationary bike I can read. We will see if this works. Who am I kidding I need to concentrate on me during my gym time….Your right brain…all about me…LOL

Till Next Time….
