legcramps - Wednesday Jan 23, 2013

Weight: 166.0

I took an aleve yesterday afternoon to help with the pain in my butt, but it didn't really help so after work I picked up a different over-the-counter med to alleviate some of the pain in my butt. It seems to be working, although trying to remember to take the med is a bit of a pain in my butt...

Did the 30 Day Shred workout yesterday; it was sooooo tough to complete! Next time I have a pain in my butt i'll rest completely instead of trying to work it out through exercise.

Then I woke up at 4 am with a large gut-ache. I will need more than one cup of coffee today.

Breakfast - mocha, quick oats with blueberries and pb

Lunch - gonna try a salad today, need some veggies in me

Snack - yogurt, skinny B

Dinner - chicken, brown rice, maybe stir-fry some bell pepper

Exercise - walking 30 minutes at track

A friend who owns a hair salon bought Tea Tree by Paul Mitchell shampoo and conditioner for me. I normally buy no-name or store brand products, but she bought this because I need the extra moisture and conditioning. It will also protect the colour I had put in last week ;) BONUS.

What else can I tell 'ya? I could really go for a drink right now. Too bad i'm at work.

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

getmebackto150 on 01/23/2013:
Have a great day!!! Mmmm... I could go for a drink too! Too bad its 10am and I too am at work... Is it Friday yet???


OhioRaven on 01/23/2013:
Take care of that pain in your Butt :v)


Tangalyn~ on 01/23/2013:
let us know how the new shampoo works.. hope u have a great day!


niftyjack on 01/24/2013:
I'm doing the 30 Day Shred, too. It's ridiculously tough, but I like the challenge. Hope your butt feels better soon.


Bikiniwax85 on 01/24/2013:
I giggled reading your entry. Kind of funny with those butt pain repeatedly written. Hope its ok now.

My friend has DDR and Just Dance 3, so last night after DDR we did one song from Just Dance. I think we'll be doing Just Dance from now on; our heartrate will stay high for the entire time i'm sure. I'm excited to really try it out next week :)

I didn't do much else yesterday except to start watching season 1 of The Walking Dead. It's pretty slow; I have to keep reminding myself that it's a tv show, not a movie ;)

Great night's sleep; up with a slight twinge in my left hip/butt area, probably from wallyball. Ok, it's not slight, it's making me walk funny. This reminds me to make a massage appointment asap. I should place a heating pad on the area tonight and see if that helps.

Breakfast - mocha, oatmeal with apple and peanut butter (350)

Lunch - soup (100)

Snack - yogurt and skinny B (250)

Dinner - chicken and rice (550)

Snack - peanut butter sandwich (350)

Exercise - 30 Day Shred

I ordered a juicer yesterday because I wasn't quite finished with my weekend shopping spree ;) I think it will be here sometime next week. I hear it does great things for your skin. I should do some before and after shots - what do you think? Maybe do a 30 day trial of adding in one or two juices each day?

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

OhioRaven on 01/22/2013:
Take it easy on that hip. Sounds like you're doing great.


Tangalyn~ on 01/22/2013:
dont give up on the show :) i am a big fan!! the juice experient u mentioned sounds exciting i say do it! have a great day!!


supercheese on 01/22/2013:
dancing game sounds so much fun!! great way to burn calories


V on 01/22/2013:
Hope your message will work out the kinks..I would have LOVED to seen ya bust a move last night :) RYC My "skinny ritas" are super simple to make..Shot of Tequila,(or two ;) LOL ), fresh lime juice, sugar free margarita mix, splash of grand marnier(optional, but I love it) and club soda to neutralize the sweetness of the marg mix.. Some people add triple sec but since I use grand mariner which is on the sweet side, I omit it to cut the calories.. Jose Cuervo sells the Skinny Rita(lite) mix with everything in it, all you have to do is pour it over ice, if you want to make it super skinny, add club soda.. Hope ya had a good day :)


biscottibody59 on 01/22/2013:
Hope your week is shaping up to your liking--good sleep is a great start to that:-)

I saw your mention of extremely low temps--I can't imagine what that's like. I couldn't stand 22degF with a slight wind a couple weeks ago. Just like with our heat, being prepared is half the battle I imagine.


mskitty on 01/23/2013:
The walking dead doesn't really pick up until like the end of season 2 and then it gets interesting, I didn't like it at first, mainly because its nothing like the comic books- I was into them way before the show ever started. Either way I agree it was slow. Its one of my favorite shows now though. -----Oh and I did smile :D


Umpqua on 01/23/2013:
The dance stuff sounds great. I watched the first few episodes of Walking Dead and enjoyed them, but I decided not to get vested in it since there's too much catching up to do. Norman Reedus.....what? ;P


Just42day on 01/23/2013:
Hope you can get a massage and that the butt feels better. Maybe the spa can suggest some exercises to help? The last time I had problems, the person suggested a few things that helped immediately.



legcramps - Monday Jan 21, 2013

Weight: 166.0

I really, really love wallyball. It honestly gives me an endorphine rush that lasts well into Monday, which is super nice because i'm back at work and horrifically happy about it.

I need one of these.

I had a lovely dinner date Saturday night with two great friends, and wallyball on Sunday and that was the extent of my social activities aside from some shopping. Wow, i'm just oozing happy right now; even my morning car troubles are not getting me down. Yes, it's minus 40 celcius today with windchill, and my car wanted to sleep in. I can't say that I blame it for not wanting to be out in this weather.

On my mini shopping spree I purchased a brita water bottle. Anyone try these? Or "Boggles"? Same idea. They have a filter inside the bottle to filter your water as you drink it. I thought it would be good for work instead of having to haul a couple of litres of water to work with me everyday. We'll see.

I need to pick up some groceries today after work, and going to workout friend's place tonight for Dance Dance Revolution. I am going to suggest we do a Zumba DVD instead; much more of a workout.

Breakfast - mocha (I forgot my oatmeal in the microwave at home, sad face)

Lunch - soup, maybe a sandwich to make up for missing breakfast

Snack - yogurt and skinny B

Dinner - chicken and rice, some fresh veggies

Exercise - Zumba (hopefully)

I glanced over at the clock on my nightstand a little after midnight, so i'm pretty sure I didn't get a whole lot of sleep last night. I will be tired tonight I think; early to bed sounds good.

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

OhioRaven on 01/21/2013:
That stuff I eat is only on Sunday and its only one slice. Tradition I guess.


Umpqua on 01/21/2013:
Holy freezing temperatures! I'm glad you had a nice weekend, I hope today is a good one!


getmebackto150 on 01/21/2013:
Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend!!! Have a great day!


mskitty on 01/21/2013:
Wallyball I had to google that one.- Looks like fun. I was thinking about maybe getting into squash again the other day. Anyways I really wanted to thank you for your comment to tell you the truth it stopped me from having a binge this morning. I tend to let things get to me--personally. and I kinda took my stress from last night into today and I was all over just eating everything in the house. So thank you for helping me through a "F*ck it" moment. Hope today goes well you deserve all the happiness the world has to offer.


V on 01/21/2013:
Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend! YES you must get one of those totes :) Sorry that your car was sleepy and you forgot your oatmeal this morning but good for you not letting this interfere with your great mood :)

As for me well i didn't do much today after finishing my chores, did have a nice nap and a skinny margarita ;) Still not quite adjusted to my extra work day..Trying to take it in stride but it is putting a major damper on my social life..Hahahaha Have fun with your workout this evening whatever it may be :)


Just42day on 01/21/2013:
Stay warm! Sounds like you had a fabulous weekend. Hope you catch up on sleep tonight.


horn_of_plenty on 01/21/2013:
it tastes so close to being a brownie! it's the chocolate quest, i highly recommend it. sometimes they are a bit hard, even if the expiration date hasn't passed, so, i have learned to nuke them in the microwave and i eat them after my cereal with almond milk....still not as good as eggs and toast or something more real...


horn_of_plenty on 01/21/2013:
..more natural i mean!


niftyjack on 01/22/2013:
I had to google wallyball, too. (Thought it was some crazy Australian sport.) Also, DDR? Makes me almost wish I hadn't sold my old pad years ago.

'Yo! TGIF! Favorite Day! Woohoo! Yeehaw! Tally-ho!

Yesterday was a pretty good day, although I didn't get to bed until after midnight. I got a bout of 30 Day Shred in, and felt pretty good once we were done.

Then we waxed legs. Felt pretty good once we were done. Look at that. Same reaction.

Therefore, exercising is like waxing legs.

Just kidding. It's Friday!!!!!!

Breakfast - mocha, oatmeal with 1/2 apple & PB

Lunch - yogurt, skinny B

Snack - peanut butter sandwich

Dinner - chicken, rice, squash

Exercise - hmmmn???

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

OhioRaven on 01/18/2013:
Happy Friday.


Tangalyn~ on 01/18/2013:
lol that actually is a good comparsion.. hurts while doing it but feels great afterwards.. i like it :) have a great day!!


thenewMLE on 01/18/2013:
I love Fridays too!! Have a great weekend. Does waxing hurt real bad? What's the advantage over shaving? I've never tried it but the thought of pulling hair out by the roots kind of scares me!


getmebackto150 on 01/18/2013:
your menu looks good! Have a great weekend:) Love the working out and waxing legs comparison!!!


Umpqua on 01/18/2013:
Hope you have a fantastic weekend!


V on 01/18/2013:
I am always excited for you on Friday, i know it is your favorite day of the week!! Mine is Saturday <3 Any exciting plans for the weekend?


biscottibody59 on 01/19/2013:
Enjoy your weekend!



legcramps - Thursday Jan 17, 2013

Weight: 166.0

I didn't do any workouts yesterday, decided that the meeting was exercising my brain and that would be enough for me ;)

I went to bed earlier than usual, and woke up before the alarm clock. My eyes are still a little red, but I do feel a lot better than I have for the past couple of weeks. A juice feast would whiten up those eyes in just a few days, but I would need a juicer for that. Tangent?

Breakfast - mocha, oatmeal with 1/2 apple and blueberries (281)

Lunch - yogurt with 2 tbls skinny B cereal (chia, hemp, buckwheat) (200)

Snack - peanut butter sandwich (372)

Dinner - chicken, rice and squash casserole (711)

Exercise - 30 day shred (-200)

Other - leg waxing night!

Snack - cup a soup, Lipton chicken supreme (60)

Not much else going on today. Hopefully another night early to bed.

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

supercheese on 01/17/2013:
lol i went to bed at 730 last night and still slept in....I would LOVE a juicer too...Hm...maybe my next splurge. Have a good one!


OhioRaven on 01/17/2013:
Hey, I got an e-mail today at work about drinking water before bed reduces or eliminates leg cramps. Don't know if its true or not.


Umpqua on 01/17/2013:
Your foods look fantastic, have a good one!


V on 01/17/2013:
I went to bed hella early last night too..I guess I needed it as well as the long ass nap I had today..LOL It rained all day here and YES I was pretty happy that I got an extra day off :) RYC those burgers are super easy to make..You can use whatever ground meat you like(I usually use extra lean ground turkey of the leanest beef I can find) Blue Cheese crumbles(I use reduced fat)add the cheese while you are making the patty, cook and voila! LOL Not sure if you are a fan of ground lamb but I bet lamb burger with crumbled feta would be good too(that's if you like feta cheese) Hope your eyes clear up, have a good evening!



legcramps - Wednesday Jan 16, 2013

Weight: 166.0

I had some time to kill before my meeting last night, so I filled it with oatmeal and a peanut butter sandwich. Slight veer off the shiny, straight path of weight loss.

Good news is that I didn't go over my calorie max.

The meeting was painful, but it's over now so let's just let it go.

I went walking at the track, even did a little jogging too! And then when I was back at home I watched Hungry for Change and went to bed. Uneventful night, but I feel as though I did a lot.

Breakfast - mocha, oatmeal with 1/2 apple and blueberries

Lunch - soup

Snack - peanut butter sandwich

Dinner - undecided; evening meeting will have a catered dinner

Exercise - undecided; it's possible I may read a little and then turn in for the night

Other - another evening meeting, blurgh

I am still spotting today, and that damn Period Pain is radiating through my stomach and lower back. I'm going to take an advil and see what happens. I knew something was up when I woke up cranky yesterday morning! I was so ornery the people at work even looked at me differently.

Ok, no they didn't. I'm always ornery at work.

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

IndependentEm93 on 01/16/2013:
Have a great day!


OhioRaven on 01/16/2013:
Good luck with dinner. Fill up with salads, fruits, veggies if you can.


mylilsista on 01/16/2013:
Thanks for dropping by my diary and offering encouragement. You're right, this is a one-day at a time deal. I guess I got all caught up in thinking about how long it was going to take to shed the last 25. Yikes; back to today (only)! :)


Umpqua on 01/16/2013:
I hope your pain eases up. People around here are wusses about the snow - it's New England and it snows every winter (not as much as you get though), but people act like it's the end of the world!


V on 01/16/2013:
I am a HUGE supporter of Aleve for cramps/back pain.If Advil doesn't do the trick, i highly suggest you try it..My sister turned me on to it, she calls it "Blue Magic" hahahaha Hope you have a great evening and a quick and painless meeting to boot :)


skinnygrlwithin on 01/17/2013:
It's always hard to eat well when someone else is providing the food! I'm sure you did well.

RYC: Yes, I definitely think it was better that I slept in the other day... I think I can do 2 days at the gym before work a week MAX and then just throw some workouts in on the weekend.



legcramps - Tuesday Jan 15, 2013

Weight: 166.0

My legs are killing me. It was tough getting down the stairs this morning.

The bad part is that I noticed that i'm spotting and having stomach ouchies (this shouldn't be happening), my eyes are both bloodshot even though I had a decent sleep, and i'm coughing and sneezing like crazy.

As I recall, December/January are always tough months for me; I tend to get sick no matter what right around this time of year. For my sake I hope i'm able to work through it because i've got two evening meetings this week that I can't miss.

Dance Dance Revolution last night for exercise - pretty boring. Not much of a workout. Will have to think of something else to do when I get home afterwards since this is a once a week thing with friends.

Breakfast - mocha, oatmeal with apple and blueberries

Lunch - soup

Snack - peanut butter sandwich

Dinner - chicken, rice, squash casserole

Exercise - walk 30 minutes at track

Other - evening meeting

Will try to get to sleep early tonight and maybe a little extra rest is all I need to feel better.

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

thenewMLE on 01/15/2013:
I hope you feel better! There has been nasty stomach viruses going around here for the last 3 weeks, so maybe it's a virus and not anything too serious. But do take care of yourself!!! I'm sorry your DDR wasn't as productive. If you are doing it with friends, maybe they would want to put in a Zumba DVD instead? Or DDR with them and do ZUmba on your own? I hope your legs settle down. Fortunately, my leg issues were dehydration and have improved tremendously with the increased water. I hope you can find an easy solution for yours!


Just42day on 01/15/2013:
yes, feel better soon. The chocolate raspberry coffee is just such a nice change from the standard coffee. If you like mocha, I think you like it. The downside, like any specialty coffee, it's pricey. Santa gave me some $ so I splurged. (Plus I stretch out the grounds by reusing them the 2nd day & just adding another tbls. Cheap, yes but it's tastes the same and I get to have my special coffee twice as often!)


OhioRaven on 01/15/2013:
Hope you get better. Take care.


supercheese on 01/15/2013:
feel better!!! <3


V on 01/15/2013:
Hope you feel better <3 As far as the spotting goes, sometimes that happens when you are doing Depo shots but if it becomes heavier, you might want to have your gyno check it out..Have a great evening :)


IndependentEm93 on 01/15/2013:
Feel better!!!

Weight: 166.0

Weekend Recap:

Friday 1/11: one hour shoveling, afternoon off. good eats.

Saturday 1/12: no exercise, day off (hockey game). out for supper - chicken ceasar salad. good eats.

Sunday 1/13: two hours wallyball. good eats. lots of water.

Ouch! Back at wallyball yesterday, and o.m.g. does my body ache! It's awesome.

Breakfast: mocha, oatmeal with apple and blueberries

Lunch: soup

Snack: peanut butter sandwich

Dinner: crockpot chicken drumsticks with rice and sauteed sweet pepper

Exercise: Dance Dance Revolution

I want to play wallyball everyday. Except that my arms are so red, swollen and sore from hitting the hardest ball EVER, I won't be able to play until next Sunday anyways.

But day-am, that was a good day yesterday. Organized sports is my euphoria. I love it.

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

V on 01/14/2013:
Yayyy for wallyball season! Hope that you have a good day :)


thenewMLE on 01/14/2013:
Your dinner sounds delicious! What is wallyball? Whatever it is, I think I would take that over shoveling!! hahaha - I've never shoveled because I have only had snow 4 times in my life here and it was only a dusting - never an accumulation. I did live in Chicago after Katrina, but there were 9 kids between me and my cousin and the other sister so there was always someone assigned to the shoveling. Have fun with DDR! My girls used to love that!


graindart on 01/14/2013:
I totally forgot about Wallyball. I used to play that all of the time in my teens and loved it.


OhioRaven on 01/14/2013:
Sounds like you're staying on track. Good Job !


liza36 on 01/14/2013:
Nice weekend you had. Love that "good" kind of soreness.


Maria7 on 01/14/2013:
You get a lot of exercise in. Your menu looks good, too. :-)


horn_of_plenty on 01/14/2013:
sorry to hear you got snow! lol

yes, i am feeling a bit better lately :-) i also asked for and got an hour lunch. i went on the treadmill at the gym next door, only .7 mi but that's .7 more than usual and I got a little sweaty, but felt so good. tomorrow i'll remember a tshirt! :-) today i walked in a sweater, lol., since i wasn't gonna change into my gym attire for a little walk at lunch haha


horn_of_plenty on 01/14/2013:
...breakfast sounds nice, tasty...fun!


Umpqua on 01/15/2013:
Wallyball sounds vicious but I'm glad you're enjoying it :) Have a good one!



legcramps - Friday Jan 11, 2013

Weight: 166.0

I ended up coming to work today instead of taking the day off... so hard to change my mindset about working myself to the bone! But I think I will take the afternoon off. No, I WILL take the afternoon off! LOL.

We had a severe snowstorm yesterday and it is blowing and blustery today. Perfect day to stay inside and watch movies.

I did 30 day shred twice yesterday as my two workout buddies showed up at different times. Big workout there! Fine with me :)

Breakfast - gingerale, oatmeal with baked apple (much easier on the tummy)

Lunch - chicken noodle soup

Snack - peanut butter sandwich

Dinner - chicken and quinoa with coleslaw

Exercise - not sure... might try an insanity workout - the fit test maybe? would be interesting to see where i'm at with that.

Was invited out for drinks with friends tonight, but I think i'll pass and maybe get a start on all the shovelling that will take over my life for the next couple of days ;)

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

liza36 on 01/11/2013:
Wow, the Shred twice! That's awesome. Enjoy your afternoon off.


getmebackto150 on 01/11/2013:
Have a great day and enjoy the afternoon off!!!


Just42day on 01/11/2013:
thanks for the welcome back! Sounds like you'll be getting sufficient exercise shoveling. Be careful! I do love the turkey meatballs. I also throw in oatmeal,worchestshire sauce, garlic powder and egg. Use a mini-ice cream scoop to make the balls and just bake for 20 minutes. They freeze incredibly well. I've served them as a appetizer with sweet N sour sauce on the side and people gobble them up. (get it -turkey - gobble?? sorry...)


Umpqua on 01/11/2013:
I hope you're taking the afternoon off work :) You wrote what I was thinking - I've been taking my probiotics and vitamins so I'm hoping my body is fighting whatever this is. Have a good weekend!


V on 01/11/2013:
I assume you took the day off yesterday so that may be the reason why you felt the need to go to work today..LOL Hope you decided to take the afternoon off.. Dam girl shred twice? Stellar! Have a wonderful weekend!


horn_of_plenty on 01/11/2013:
sorry about your tummy! i hope it is better? :-)

thanks for cheering me on. lately i am so nervous about everything. i will also be moving out this year, but is undecided when - it's whenever an apartment opens up on the waiting list :-)

if you say i can do it, at least i can believe that.. :-)


hollybelle on 01/11/2013:
Sorry you weren't feeling well earlier in the week. Great workouts! How is your weather? I hope you are enjoying some warmer than usual weather like we are here. It's so odd to have warm weather in January, for heaven sake!


sailingeagle on 01/12/2013:
I hope you had a wonderful day off! Keep warm! :)


biscottibody59 on 01/13/2013:
I hope you've gotten a break from the shoveling by now--sounds pretty strenuous!

Enjoy your Sunday!



legcramps - Thursday Jan 10, 2013

Weight: 166.0

I liked yesterday, it was a good day. Wow, another one, look at me go!

I skipped the cup of soup in the afternoon, and only ate half of my egg sandwich with leftover fries for dinner, but I think my eating is pretty much back on track. Of course, I ruined it a little bit by having a few cups of black coffee in the evening (hadn't had coffee for six days up until then) which then kept me awake until well after midnight. I'm a sucker for peer pressure and I was visiting a friend at the time.

Breakfast - yogurt, gingerale

Lunch - soup

Snack - peanut butter sandwich

Dinner - chicken and quinoa leftovers, coleslaw

Exercise - 30 day shred

I went walking to the track last night and saw Golf Guy watching a hockey game. Said hi. Fumbled a few words around. Decided best course of action would be to stop talking altogether.

But it was nice to see him. I should really grow a backbone soon and ask him out. Worst that can happen is he says 'no thanks', right?

I am thinking of taking the day off tomorrow; one of my resolutions was to take more time for myself. Might as well start now!

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

IndependentEm93 on 01/10/2013:
Yoohoo!!


mskitty on 01/10/2013:
Coffee is such a hard thing to kick for me too. I tried my hardest but lol it still is my dirty little habit lol.

glad u got to see golf guy ;) hope today is a good one for ya!


liza36 on 01/10/2013:
Definitely take time for yourself - I approve of taking the day off!
