legcramps - Wednesday Jun 12, 2013

Weight: 168.0

Hello all!

A bit rushed in getting out to the golf course yesterday, but I made it and we got 8 holes in (one was under construction). On the last hole, I finally cranked out an awesome 200+ yard drive, straight down the fairway. I've been waiting for my new driver to pull this out ever since I bought her! Taylormade Burner for the win :)

I had dinner once I got home from the golf course - hamburger, green beans, salad (loads of greens) and a snack later on of crackers and cheese. Pretty good day all in all, though I talked myself out of mowing the lawn. Not sure why, I had time to do it.

I found a robin's nest in the ivy that crawls up my garage every summer; i've posted a picture on my facebook profile so some of you may have seen it. I thought there were three little birdies inside the nest; this morning I checked and boy are they growing fast! The nest looks way too tiny now, and there are actually FOUR babies in there! Cutest things EVER. Well, a close second to puppies.

Another busy workday and evening plans for tonight! Tell you about it tomorrow!

 

Progress as of today: 17 lbs lost so far, only 8 lbs to go!

puddles on 06/12/2013:
Congrats 200+ yards. Babies of any kind are so cute. Have a great day.


Umpqua on 06/12/2013:
What a great finish to your golf game, congrats! I'm sure the birdies are super cute :)


OhioRaven on 06/12/2013:
Have a Great Day, LC !

My food yesterday was slightly off kilter due to a friend's BBQ; I had a hot dog and some chips. You know summer is upon us when people start breaking out the dogs! I tried to balance that out with some watermelon. It was very hot and muggy yesterday; we had tornado warnings throughout the south east area but they didn't touch down near us thank goodness!

After the BBQ I went to the baseball game but decided to leave in the 8th inning because it was starting to get too cold to sit in one spot. We were up 8 runs to 4, so I think we won but i'm not entirely sure since I had a dream that we lost the game. wtf dreamworld? Where'd all my harlequin romance dreams go??? I really have to dream about a baseball game? LOL.

Didn't really want to get up this morning for work, and I really need to get some greens into my body. I'm drained and it's only Tuesday! I can tell i'm drained because i'm feeling down for absolutely no reason.

Golfing after work today; hopefully that will cheer me up a bit! Have a great Tuesday!

Progress as of today: 17.5 lbs lost so far, only 7.5 lbs to go!

puddles on 06/11/2013:
Love BBQ - I don't know what it is about food cooked on a grill probably because we can only do it for a part of the year. Have a great day.


Umpqua on 06/11/2013:
Yay for BBQ season and glad the bad weather missed your area. I hope you get some rest and veggies today!


V on 06/11/2013:
I would much rather dream about baseball than the stupid work dreams I have, LOL Have a good evening my friend <3

Weekend was okay; I went golfing 18 holes on Friday afternoon and twisted my knee. It's been pretty sore lately, no sharp pains but definitely some swelling and just general soreness. I iced it a few times but it stiffens up quickly and makes it difficult to find motivation to do much.

Had a garage sale on Saturday and mowed the lawn, pulled a few more weeds and such. It started raining in the late morning and continued through the day, so baseball game was cancelled. I relaxed at home instead.

Sunday was a household chore day with laundry and whatnot. Tried to golf in the afternoon but the rain started up again, so instead I bought some groceries and made a few meals for the week.

My eating wasn't very good on Saturday, but the rest of the weekend was alright. Hopefully it won't rain too much this week; I need to get out on the golf course to practice for a tournament this weekend!

Progress as of today: 17.5 lbs lost so far, only 7.5 lbs to go!

Umpqua on 06/10/2013:
Sounds like you got a lot accomplished over the weekend, even if you didn't get to golf. I hope your knee feels better!

legcramps on 06/10/2013:
I did, didn't I?!!!


supercheese on 06/10/2013:
hope you made some $$$ at the garage sale!! Have a great day legs!

legcramps on 06/10/2013:
Nah, it started raining and people just weren't in the mood to check out sales I guess!


Tangalyn~ on 06/10/2013:
hope ur sale went well.. have a great day!


biscottibody59 on 06/10/2013:
I hope your knee doesn't hamper your activities--onward and upward!


puddles on 06/10/2013:
Take care of yourself. Have a great day.


lolla on 06/10/2013:
Hope your knee heals soon!


OhioRaven on 06/10/2013:
Hey, LC. Good to hear from you. I'll be your caddy this weekend. Stay back on your weak knee. Don't overswing or try to kill the ball. Don't push anything. Hit ALL the fairways and leave yourself a good approach. Then take charge of the greens like you own them. And then kick some ASS ! Have a Good Day, LC


V on 06/10/2013:
Holy hell, please be careful with your knee <3 I hope that your day was a good one!!

RYC yes I am going crazy here with anticipation waiting for Shaun to release Focus 25 <3 LOL Have a good evening my friend!

Driving Range - 1; Legcramps - 0

Who knew I could demolish all the muscles in my body just by wacking balls for an hour?

Even my ABDOMINAL MUSCLES hurt. And I sweated buckets. Haven't done that for YEARS, man. LOL. Feels that way anyways. 

If I continue to experience an endorphin high every time I golf or have anything to do with golfing, I may just become obsessed with the sport. Playing ball has never given me a high like this after every game. I don't understand how an hour of ball wacking equates to a high impact workout, but somehow it does.

Anyways, I was all nice and sore by the time I got home and don't recall doing anything except take a shower and go to bed...

Messy garage - 1; Legcramps - 0

So. Today. After work i'll do a quick run-through in the garage, but I gotta be out on the course by 5:30. Priorities, people.

Progress as of today: 17.5 lbs lost so far, only 7.5 lbs to go!

skinnygrlwithin on 06/06/2013:
Whatever it is that gets you sore is good in my book... it's probably using muscles you haven't used in awhile? I did leg lifts the other day and one side hurt so bad I was walking like a 90 year old woman yesterday.

legcramps on 06/06/2013:
LOL, I hear you. I think i'm just putting some lazy muscles to work and they're not happy about it ;)


grannyannie on 06/06/2013:
Glad you enjoy the golf. And sore abs are a good thing!


Umpqua on 06/06/2013:
Heh, that's awesome that you're enjoying the golf so much. I felt the same way about disc golf when I was playing all the time. Gotta get back out there soon, you're making me miss it!


puddles on 06/06/2013:
Nice day on the golf course is the most wonderful thing. Enjoy


V on 06/06/2013:
Sore IS good, just as long as you aren't in any pain...Hey how is the knee?


hollybelle on 06/09/2013:
I love to hit balls - not play golf, actually, but hit balls. But haven't done it for so long I think it would kill my back, though! It's so nice to get outside and be active.

I took the afternoon off from work yesterday and planted my container garden and pulled more weeds. When I had had enough of the heat, I went inside and swept and mopped the floors and shampooed rugs.

Then I golfed 9 holes! And when I got home after that, I did a few more household chores. Still need to clean out that garage  that thing is a thorn in my side right now since it needs to be ready for a garage sale on Saturday.

It is no wonder that I wasn't able to get up with my alarm this morning. Luckily, I still made it to work in time. However, there was no time to pack my healthy lunch. Instead I snacked on cinammon crackers and hickory sticks.

Heading to the driving range after work today, then hopefully attacking that garage. Somebody's gotta do it, and since my name's on the title I guess that's me... LOL.

Progress as of today: 17.5 lbs lost so far, only 7.5 lbs to go!

V on 06/05/2013:
Look at you gardening! I am sure that makes your busy body neighbors happy ;) LOL

Have fun golfing and attack that garage ASAP!! <3

Flying right along through the week. I'm thinking of taking Friday off to get some bigger tasks at home done, so that would mean only three more days of work.

Yesterday I was frustrated with my job and took that emotion home with me. Thankfully I got over it without taking it out on anyone. Mowed the lawn and pulled some weeds; still a lot of work to do out there.

I ate very well; cooked some wild rice and quinoa, added red pepper, onion, and green beans. Lovely. My boss brought me a big slice of chocolate cheesecake; I haven't tucked into it yet because I don't know if i'll be able to stop from eating it all at once! Also tried a 6" turkey and avocado from Subway. Eh, I think I can live without it.

Today is all about leftovers. Should be fine. And the plan is to clean up the garage for a sale this weekend. Maybe pull a few more weeds if i'm still in an ornery mood ;)

Progress as of today: 17.5 lbs lost so far, only 7.5 lbs to go!

Umpqua on 06/04/2013:
The quinoa concoction sounds lovely. I still have lots of weeding and mulching to do, it's neverending. Have a good one!


getmebackto150 on 06/04/2013:
your food from yesterday sounds delish! I don't know if I would be able to portion out that cheesecake either:(... Have a great day!!


getmebackto150 on 06/04/2013:
Just caught up with yesterday's post-golfing gets SUPER expensive quickly... I too have these same issues... with golfing eating into my budget... I guess with my back issues of late, it won't be an issue in the near future... BLAH!!! Have a good one!!


puddles on 06/04/2013:
Food sound real good. Have a great day.


V on 06/04/2013:
Sorry that you had the same experience as i did yesterday..Man I was so pissed and I am sure you were too!! Hopefully today was a better one for you <3

Very busy weekend! But good!

Friday - visited with a friend after work, then quick dinner of sausage and veggies before the ballgame; did NOT eat there, did NOT have any beer! once the sun went down, it was chiiiiiiiilllllllly. it took me awhile to warm up again back at home. local team WON!

Saturday - had a bagel and coffee for breakfast, went golfing. 18 holes. mowed the lawn when i got home and had FAST FOOD for dinner  went to another ballgame (they played three cold nights in a row, poor things). it was very cold! no eats, no beer; local team WON AGAIN! fell into bed with the electric blanket turned way up.

Sunday - coffee for breakfast, went into the city and bought a new driver and a couple golf shirts and basically blew my budget for June; this is an expensive hobby! cut back to town in time for a 3pm tee time, golfed 9 holes and went home frustrated with my short game. had FAST FOOD for dinner again!  waxed legs, burned my knee with hot wax - yowch!

And here I am.

Today's plan is.... written out on my laptop at home. something about renewing a costco membership, something something, cut the grass, something something, golf?

V on 06/03/2013:
Awesome work resiting the beer at the games! Not sure if I could be that strong so bravo to you my friend! Congrats on your new club and golf gear, I am sure ya look super stylish :) Have a good evening <3


Mskitty on 06/03/2013:
Agreed beer is a weakness for me as well. Good on ya.

The banquet I attended last evening was quite nice, with turkey as the main course. I took only a small amount of the meat, and loaded my plate with salad. I also ate very slowly, as I was in deep conversation with a co-worker who has since retired. It was wonderful to catch up with her! And since I wasn't scarfing down food at the speed of light, I ate until I was pleasantly full (not painfully full) and even skipped the cake they had at the end.

I did get out on the golf course on Wednesday as well, which was nice because I thought it might rain on us. Never did!

What with golfing on Wednesday and wearing slight wedge heels yesterday, my knee was quite sore overnight; I woke up a few times with a throbbing pain on the inside of my knee, right where the initial tear was. I am trying to ignore it because i'm sure I have a low tolerance for pain, but will ice it after work today. However, i'm feeling pretty sorry for myself and so disappointed in the way i've responded to this whole process of surgery and recovery. Life happens, and it's the way we react to the things that happen that determines how well we live. I'm afraid I haven't been fairing too well in this regard and that makes me feel like I haven't learned as much in the last few years as I thought. I need to take a step back, relax, and start to take things as they come instead of always expecting so much of myself.

It's our local baseball team's home opener tonight and I scored myself a free ticket to the game, so i'll be sitting on the sidelines with a cozy blanket taking in the sights, sounds, and smells of a local, small town baseball game. I'll be able to avoid the dogs and burgers, but imagine I will bend to the call of the beer tent ;)

Thank goodness we are always able to see the positive in things, even when they seem at their worst! Have a truly awesome weekend everyone!

Finally, a break in the weather! I can see the SUN!

If it dries up enough, i'll be getting a round of golf in after work. If it doesn't dry up enough, i'll be laying on the couch sobbing underneath my favorite quilt. Huh.

I had steamed green beans and a burger for dinner, turkey sandwich for lunch, and coffee and crackers in the morning yesterday. Last night I munched on crackers and cheese. Lots of water.

I have no plan for my meals today (or for the rest of the week) and i'm really, really hoping I can stick to staying mainly healthy until I pre-cook some meals on the weekend. I was really just too lazy to get this done last weekend. Tomorrow night's banquet will be my biggest test.

Did you know the grass I cut on the weekend has already grown to its original length before the cuttage occurred? I wish my hair grew that fast.

Progress as of today: 17.5 lbs lost so far, only 7.5 lbs to go!

Umpqua on 05/29/2013:
Yummy foods, and hopefully the banquet will have enough variety that you can keep it healthy!


OhioRaven on 05/29/2013:
Green onions in cottage cheese ? Now I've heard it all. I wish MY hair grew as fast as your grass !


V on 05/29/2013:
Well I am sure your neighbors appreciated you mowing the lawn..If I recall correctly they were not pleased about the lawn this time last year, LOL fawk em!! Seriously hope that you got the chance to golf today my friend <3


biscottibody59 on 05/31/2013:
Hope you're having better weather!

RYC: Thanks for the stretch--that's not one I've tried.

I was able to get into the clinic for a depo shot yesterday *sigh of relief*, so i'm feeling much better and am able to continue working.

Last night I was layed up with my heating pad most of the night and missed the Star Trek 3D movie that was showing in town. Not terribly sad about that though; I was never a fan.

I highly doubt that i'll get too much accomplished today; it's been steadily raining since yesterday so any yardwork I wanted to do has been postponed to sunnier days. This week is not turning out the way I expected it to, so if it's nice on the weekend i'll have a lot of catching up to do what with all the golf i'm missing out on

My eating yesterday was not good; my control flies out the window when i'm not feeling my best and yesterday was no exception. I did not, however, succombe to the desire for ice cream. This is no small accomplishment!

Also, the coffee is much less strong today, so i'm not vibrating all over. I was so 'caffeinated' yesterday I felt like I could have run a marathon. Of course, after 1/4 mile I would've changed my mind.

Progress as of today: 17.5 lbs lost so far, only 7.5 lbs to go!

grannyannie on 05/28/2013:
Hope you feel better. Yea, it's hard not to indulge when we feel bad. My resistance often goes out the window when I'm sick.


thenewMLE on 05/28/2013:
Maybe a nice weekend will be your cure all! I was telling Annie that I found a no sugar added ice cream from Blue Bell that is really good. I just do a small scoop when I need a treat every once in a while. I'm down to one cup of coffee a day! But we drink it REAL strong down here. My grandma always said if it looked like tea instead of oil, you should just drink the damn tea!! hahaha Have a great day!

legcramps on 05/28/2013:
LOL, that's hilarious! Thanks for the laugh :)


Umpqua on 05/28/2013:
Avoiding ice cream is a major accomplishment in my book. Hope you get to feeling better.


V on 05/28/2013:
That is great that you were able to get the shot so quick!! I am sure you are breathing a huge sigh of relief..Have a good evening <3


supercheese on 05/28/2013:
What do you think of the depo shot? I need to find a bc that works good......
