legcramps - Monday Jul 16, 2007

Weight: 0.0

My week of vacation was wonderful but last night I was absolutely dreading going back to work. I don't know why but I was sure that I needed another week off!

We had so much family down - they didn't stay with us but they were still around, you know? I find it so draining. I'm really not a social person - not that I don't enjoy a good chat every now and then. I'm more of a one-on-one kind of person, but even then it sucks the energy out of me and i'm ready to be left alone for a few days. And this week, well, even though I had a couple days to myself I continuously felt guilty about not visiting with all this family - so I didn't really enjoy myself.

Anyhow, literally taking a week off is not what I had in mind, but with time off comes a free schedule and that's something else i'm not familiar with. I've learned through the last few years that I need to have a scheduled life in order to get anything done. If I don't write it down, I won't do it. So all the running i'd been doing went *plop* down the toilet, any walking was shot before I even got started due to this or that excuse, and water, salad and whole wheat were nonexistent.

Today i'm back on a schedule and feeling quite awake and aware and have a sense of clarity that i've been missing for a week or so. So i'm back in the race and ready to start working hard again.

Oh, but another week of vacation would be so nice...

I completely understand on not being a social person, its not that you dont like people, its just not something I enjoy, I htink its all the queshtions that are asked.


hollybelle on 07/17/2007:
Some people refuel by being WITH others and some refuel by time along in solidtude - or a balance of the two - mostly. I hate getting too far out of my routine sometimes. Glad your clarity is back. Have a good week.

Holy crap, I could barely move after ball last night. But it was worth it, we won both games reasonably well and played fairly decent games. The unfortunate part is that a lot of our players that helped us to victory last night probably won't be around during playoffs. Oh well. At least we know we have a good team when everyone comes out!

I have too many things to do today and tomorrow. I don't know where to begin and I don't want to begin. Last day of work today and i'm off tomorrow and all of the next week! Can't wait! Hooray!

Hope you're all having good summers. Aside from the loads of rain we've been getting, it's been decently warm here (average 20-22 degrees - celsius) and I think it will only get warmer (calling for 32 degrees on Friday). Very humid, hard to breathe for those who are not used to such warm, humid weather. But I love it - warm weather of any kind. I'll live with not breathing as well!

Breakfast: eggs and toast, coffee Lunch: turkey sandwich Dinner: chicken and rice Snack: ***chocolate*** (I was trying to hide that from you with the asterisks)

hollybelle on 07/05/2007:
Well, you did fine even with the chocolate - which we could still see, by the way! LOL Depending on how much chocolate you did have......keep up the good work.


maria777 on 07/06/2007:
That's exactly what I need to do to get back on track...start listing everything I eat like I used to do long ago!

Sounds like you're having a warm summer...how much fahrenheit?


Horn_Of_Plenty on 07/06/2007:
LOL, great job hiding that chocolate...it looks like it's up in lights! foods look good...i always remember that you stray from the fruits/veggies. I'm glad your games went well...its nice to see you on here more frequently now! whoa, 100 degrees F is 32 degrees...that's HOT!


sweetpea1977 on 07/11/2007:
Hope you're staying cool up there. We're getting tons of rain here (Georgia), which has cooled us down quite a bit. We were almost approaching 100 degrees during the drought, but now we're enjoying low to mid 80's. Much better!!

I didn't make it out for dinner on Friday, but we did manage to sneak some rhubarb crumble cake from my mom's place. Very good, but really, really sweet. I guess i'm not used to all these sugary foods anymore. Ha, yeah right.

So I talked to my boyfriend about the lactose-intolerant idea that I had, and he sort of tore that to bits for me. He said that since he's been eating that cereal (Kashi), he's been feeling the same way. So we've decided that it is not the milk, that it's the cereal. And it's probably only the cereal because we eat it for breakfast and lunch, not just breakfast. And usually not just one cup either. So there you go. If we weren't so bull-headed and addicted to munchy foods like this, we wouldn't have a problem.

We play a double header in slo-pitch tonight. That's three hours of ball. You know, if i'm not sick of ball by the time we're done the season, I think I must be crazy. I know there was a reason for contemplating not returning to ball last year, but unfortunately I can't remember it!

I'm not old yet, but man do I feel it.

Run, legcramps, run...

Thanks for your suggestions Donkey and Horn_of_Plenty. Next time I visit the grocery store i'll pick up some soy milk and give it a try. I've tried soy milk before with cereal but for some reason haven't stuck to it. But it was a while ago and maybe my tastebuds have changed since then.

Breakfast: 5 biscotti biscuits (186 cals) Lunch: turkey sandwich on a hot dog bun! (270 cals) Afternoon: veggies and dip (155 cals) Dinner: I might be going out for dinner today, so i'll budget 600-700 calories for that

Total calories = Maximum of 1311

Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/29/2007:
Great calories and glad to be of help to you for the soymilk issue. I can't believe how many different types of soy milk are on the market...more brands than milk, i believe! Have a good dinner. Let us know how it was!

I've come to the conclusion that I am lactose-intolerant. I suppose I should go for tests to back up my theory, but i'm not going to.

I figure so because of my favorite breakfast. Heck, i've even had it for lunch and dinner: Kashi cereal with milk. I don't know why I like it so much but it's wonderful. And I can't eat it anymore because it makes me double over in pain.

I guess I could eat it as a snack, without the milk. Yeah, i'll give that a try. Look at that - I cheered myself up! Doesn't take much.

Breakfast: 1/2 cup french vanilla cappacino; 1/2 cup coffee (132 cals), 5 biscotti biscuits (186 cals) Lunch: veggies and dip (104 cals) Dinner: chicken and rice (534 cals) snack: cheese twists (314 cals)

Total calories = 1271

Donkey on 06/28/2007:
Have you tried soy milk? I had reservations about trying soy milk, but then somebody told me to get vanilla flavored. I was pleasantly surprised. Some brands come in chocolate too. I have also tried the "light" variety of vanilla and plain and both are wonderful. I have not tried any of the chocolate kinds (regular or light) because I've heard they are *delicious* and I'm sure I will overindulge if I do have a carton of that stuff in my house.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/29/2007:
do you like soy milk? some of the soy milk brands have even less calories than milk..and there are such good flavors. i wouldn't go for rice milk, because it doesn't have protein. but you should definitely look into soymilk.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/29/2007:
i would try the vanilla flavor if your unsure of trying the plain first!


Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/29/2007:
whenever i hear or say the word "biscotti" i always think of the member "biscottibody" on this site! haha

This morning when the alarm went off I went downstairs and lay down on the couch with Zoe our Cockapoo. She was fast asleep on my tummy when bf came down the stairs and woke her up. He was supposed to be working out of town this week but because of rain it got postponed to next week. It's been postponed a few times now and i'm starting to wonder if they just don't want to do that job. Anyhow, he went over to the big lazy chair and she zoned in on how comfy he looked, jumped straight up in the air and flew over to rest herself on his legs. I can't believe she thinks he's more comfortable than me! MY belly is very soft, believe me!!!

Breakfast: biscotti cookies (5) - 186 cals Lunch: turkey sandwich on white (no ww bread left) - 441 cals Afternoon: veggies with dip - 91 cals Dinner: Chicken with rice - 330 cals Snack: veggies with dip - 91 cals

Total calories = 1139

Exercise: slo-pitch (two games, approx. 3 hours total)

I suppose I should mention that I didn't run yesterday, nor did I go to the kickboxing class. I did go for a walk, but that's it. The shame...

Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/27/2007:
eh, don't worry about yesterday not doing any exercise. it just gives you more of an incentive to exercise really well today! especially since your muscles are nice and relaxed!


bathsuitbeautif on 06/27/2007:
Thanks for you comments. It looks like you had a good day diet wise.

Bf left this morning, so it's just me again and the dogs. I put in my schedule that I would run today, but I don't know if that's going to happen. There's a kickboxing class tonight and seeing as there are only going to be two more classes until summer break, I oughta try and make it to them. So we'll see which one I pick (and hopefully I will pick one of them).

Breakfast - Kashi cereal Lunch - Turkey sandwich on ww; taco salad snack - Quaker Crispy Delights Chocolaty Drizzle cookies (90 cals) Dinner - 1/2 chicken breast, 1/2 pork steak, potatoes and raw veggies with dip. snack - Kashi cereal

About 1500 calories if i've added correctly.

Sounds like a good eating day! Good work!

I don't have much to say tonight, i'm pretty tired and haven't been doing very well the past couple of days. We had a backyard bbq last night and ever since i've been eating leftovers. It's terrible - I mean the food is awesome, but I should have given everyone a doggie bag to take home with them - there's way too much left for me to eat!!!

Tomorrow my bf is leaving to work - unless it rains, which has postponed his schedule already by a couple of weeks. I need a plan for the week, and I need to come up with it fast. The road race is in August and i'm only halfway there - BARELY halfway! I need to step it up a notch but where will I find the energy????

All else is going well, though I just can't seem to find any spare time and when I do manage to sit for a bit my mind races with possible things I should be doing instead. You'd think I drank a pot of coffee today or something. Nervous and anxious and just plain fidgety!

I'm in a better mood today. So I won't bore you with my complaints...

My running schedule is going well...30 minutes in total is the plan for tonight and I feel pretty good about doing it. Saturday I had a hard time getting psyched up for it - my head just wasn't in it. But today is not like that. I feel good today, like i've had a good rest.

My boyfriend will be leaving tomorrow to work and will probably be gone for a few weeks. When he's gone I do a lot better because I plan everything out and am very scheduled. That is to avoid going nuts but it actually helps me out in the long run. I would accomplish nothing if he didn't go away to work!!!

I tried out naan bread yesterday for supper and now i'm hooked! I can't believe i've never tried it before. Granted, it's the President's Choice brand, but I still really like it! We ate it folded with chicken breast and mixed peppers and low fat mayonnaise in between, like a sandwich. I don't know if that's how naan bread should be eaten but it sure made MY grade. Too bad we only had a couple slices of it.

There's no food in the house besides some salmon and whole wheat pasta. I just can't stomach that picture right now. Will have to get creative.

greengirl on 06/13/2007:
I always find I do better with a plan, too !! Well done on the running :o)

I want those summer legs but am getting the feeling that i'm sacrificing my flat tummy for them...

It just keeps getting worse. I tried real hard yesterday and woke up this morning to find that i'd gained yet again. I don't know what i'm doing! And I feel terrible. Maybe i'm getting sick and my body is playing tricks on me. That must be it, what else could it be?

I had such a terrible headache this afternoon that it literally made me sick. I took an advil and a nap and now it's not as bad but I just feel like crap.

Last month I had to visit the emergency ward at the hospital because my period was really horrible. They gave me two shots, one in each hip. Would you believe that my left side STILL hurts? I went running yesterday and at every jarr of my foot to the earth I could feel a shooting pain in my hip, exactly where I received the needle. I wonder if they hit a muscle or something. Why would it still hurt after this much time?

Oh ladies, all I can do is complain today! Maybe tomorrow will be better. Yes, of course it will. Positive thoughts!

My mantra for the moment:

Enough is enough.
