legcramps - Monday Oct 29, 2012

Weight: 166.0

I've been stuck at home pretty well all weekend; thank goodness I can get back out into the world today, even it if means going back to work LOL.

I went to bed earlier than usual on Friday night, knowing that my sinuses were about ready to burst into a full blown head cold, and woke up late Saturday morning. On Saturday I did some stuff outside, did some stuff inside, started a couple of projects, but mostly laid on the couch and drank lots of water. No way was this cold going to get the best of me.

On Saturday night, I almost opted out of a hallowe'en party altogether, but at the last minute I decided to go. I had three drinks and was back at home by 1:30am. That almost never happens LOL. You know legcramps is sick when... she gets home before 4am. LOL.

Sunday morning. Woke up. Still had a cold. Went downstairs for coffee. BAM into the bathroom. Checked out shocked face in mirror, wondered WTH just happened. Three more times in the space of the morning hours and you KNOW I didn't stray too far from the bathroom. I watched a lot of old Ghost Whisperer episodes.

By the time lunch came around, I was seriously dragging some butt. The coffee I had was long gone, and I was hungry. I was also scared that i'd be affected by whatever I ate, and so I needed to choose my lunch carefully. I ended up going with chicken noodle soup. BAD IDEA. That didn't stay in me very long. I highly doubt I got any nutrients from that meal.

During this time I did manage to get down two cups of water. Woohoo.

Finally, around 4pm I started to feel better. Less trips to the bathroom. Food was not going through me like butter. I took my temperature and it was in the normal range.

Unfortunately, I had already bowed out of the Fall Supper at my Church. Perogies, cabbage rolls, sausage. I am so angry that I had to miss this meal! But I wouldn't have enjoyed myself, and I would have worried that I was infecting everyone around me, particularly Grandma. So instead, I made myself chicken, spicy french fries, and brussel sprouts. It was a wierd combination, but it worked. No issues.

Except that this morning I checked the scale and it says I gained like four pounds over the weekend. That's ridiculous considering what I ate.

Plus, my clothes are loose, so WTH Scale? Batteries must be dying.

 

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

Oh noes :( sorry that you were sick all weekend..Hope your day went well <3


biscottibody59 on 10/30/2012:
Kinda like you needed a weekend to get over your real weekend--hope all's well with your week so far!

I am feeling a little better today, thank goodness. No balance issues yet!

Yesterday was rough, though. I was so tired and i'm not really sure why. Maybe because I feel like i've been running around like a banshee all week LOL. I've been noticing that my memory hasn't been great this week; i've forgotten to do a whole plethora of things - I think of it, and then the thought totally abandons me. I haven't even been able to remember it long enough to write it down. Anyways, I didn't get much done after the workday was over. I didn't feel like eating, but I made myself some chicken and choked it down along with some steamed bell pepper.

Then I pretty much stared at the wall and drank water for the rest of the night. I got a whole lot of water in yesterday ;)

Today i'm looking forward to my massage appointment after work! I also have the pushup challenge to get done, hopefully this afternoon (I try to do it during my break in the afternoon at work, then I don't feel like it's one more thing I have to do after work).

And then i'm going to relax, call Dad, and maybe get to sleep early.

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

Its your favorite day, FRIDAY!! Yayyyy.. I hope you have a nice relaxing massage and a great weekend to boot!

Hope you're enjoying your weekend!



legcramps - Thursday Oct 25, 2012

Weight: 166.0

Wednesday - stretching; pushup challenge; insanity; clean (general); pickup outside

My streak ended yesterday. I had one of those days where you can't make a decision to save your life. Ever have a day like that? It's not fun. I really didn't end up doing much of anything, so heaven only knows why I couldn't fit in a workout in between my non-existent activity. Such a bizarre day.

For some reason, none of the food I ate yesterday tasted very good. Hope i'm not getting sick. I ended up not eating very much - 1/2 of a turkey wrap at lunch, a serving of squash casserole at dinner, and then I tried a bagel with cream cheese around 8pm; got about 1/3 of that down before it stopped tasting good. Anyways, it wasn't a good day for nutrition, but I still got in my water goal so at least there's something to be happy about ;)

My balance is also off. Both yesterday morning and this morning I had some trouble walking after waking up; I keep losing my balance.

Thursday - stretching; walk; insanity; clean spare rooms; laundry

I don't know if i'll plan to do an insanity workout - it will depend on how much nutrition I can get in today and whether or not i'll be able to keep my balance throughout the workout.

And I have a great big pile of laundry, so that for sure needs to get done.

No pushup challenge today! Nice to have a rest day; those sessions are getting harder as time goes forward. I'm up to over 50 pushups now. Over halfway there!

 

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

biscottibody59 on 10/25/2012:
That's disturbing about your balance. I hope it's just a blip for one day. Hope you have a good day otherwise!


V on 10/25/2012:
I hope there is nothing wrong with you..Are you feeling dizzy? Hope you are feeling better <3

Another good one in the books!

Tuesday - stretching; pushup challenge; 30 day shred; clean living room

Done and done and done and done!

I also drank more water than usual... close to 3.5 litres.

Wednesday - stretching; pushup challenge; insanity; clean (general); pickup outside

I might have bigger dreams than reality can handle today. Town elections are today, as well as a hockey game and a bluegrass concert. I may not have time to put into the Wednesday chores. Sometimes things like great music or political mumbo-jumbo take priority over the daily chores to be done at home.

I would just like to note that I am ready for a work-break. Like, a week-long work-break. And since the heavens just might be in a generous mood, i'd also like to have an unlimited spending allowance. Wouldn't we all?!

Yesterday morning I woke up to snow on the ground. Throughout the day, it rained and slightly melted the snow. There's still a little left here and there, but the worrying thing right now is going to be how icy it gets with the rain and slushy conditions. Winter!

I am in a hungry mood today...

SNOW?? I wish...It's 78 degrees and the A/C is running and I just wish we were in the 50's and I could enjoy gumbo and a nice fire. Isn't it funny, those with snow don't want it and those without want it?? Kind of like straight hair and curly hair! Enjoy your day and maybe the genie will grant you your wishes!! Congrats on the clean day yesterday!


V on 10/24/2012:
Good going on your consistency with the activities! Yes I could also use a nice long week away from work, it gets really stale doesn't it? LOL Have a great evening :)

Happy Tuesday!

I had a good day yesterday.

Monday - stretching; pushup challenge; walk; clean bathroom/kitchen/mudroom CHECK

The part where I was supposed to go for a walk didn't happen, but i'm counting what I did during the day at work and after work while helping a friend with her new business venture as my walk. But still, very good day! And now I have a clean bathroom, kitchen and mudroom. That's a great bonus.

I stayed up later than usual and had a hard time falling asleep. But goshdarnit, at least now all my farmville animals are fed and I don't have to worry about letting them all starve while i'm sleeping...

So it was a little hard to wake up this morning, but the two bright as hell lightbulbs I replaced in the bathroom yesterday did a real bang-up job showering light into the room. I woke up pretty quickly once I was in there ;)

Tuesday - stretching; pushup challenge; 30 day shred; clean living room

Today should be a little less busy, which is wonderful because by the time I get everything done, those damn farmville animals will need food again and i'm sure my crops will have withered into dust.

Farmville might be taking over my life.

Breakfast - mocha

Lunch - tbd

PM - pudding

Dinner - squash, brown rice, chicken, steamed vegetables

Water - 2.5 litres

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

thenewMLE on 10/23/2012:
Have a good day and don't let your virtual life kill your real one!! haha - I get like that with my games. That is my relaxation in the evening but sometimes I stay up way too late because I just want to play one more!


nunnermack on 10/23/2012:
Luckily I haven't been sucked into Farmville yet but I know it can get addictive. I'm thinking that's where all my Facebook friends are these days because they haven't been very active posting on Facebook.

Enjoy your day!!


V on 10/23/2012:
Hahahahahaha! Well at least you are a good farmer that sacrifices sleep to make sure all the animals are tended to ;) I used to have a serious "Mafia Wars" addiction..I was totally obsessed with wacking people and recruiting mob members :( Anyhoo get to bed early tonight, I am taking my own advice as well..I have been staying up far too late on "school nights" Good job on your workouts, have a wonderful evening!

Monday? AGAIN? LOL.

I had a pretty laid-back weekend; yesterday I managed to get the dishes and laundry done, but spent the remainder of my time flipping between reading and watching movies. I finally watched paranormal activity 3 (I know, I know, the 4th one is out already) and some other wierd blair-witchy thing about aliens. Or something. I only watched 1/3 of it.

I'm going to give this healthy living thing one of the best weeks of my life. I've been feeling a little lazy and I think it's time to step up the program.

I am also going to try and get some other things done during the week. Things I usually leave for the weekend. I think this weekend will be busy, so i'd like to get as much out of the way as possible before then.

Monday - stretching; pushup challenge; walk; clean bathroom/kitchen/mudroom

Tuesday - stretching; pushup challenge; 30 day shred; clean living room

Wednesday - stretching; pushup challenge; insanity; clean (general); pickup outside

Thursday - stretching; walk; insanity; clean spare rooms; laundry

Friday - stretching; pushup challenge; yoga; clean (general)

I have a massage coming up on Friday which i'm really looking forward to; another great reason to go all out this week - my muscles will thank me i'm sure!

Breakfast - mocha

Lunch - spaghetti and chicken

PM - pudding

Dinner - chicken, brown rice, brussel sprouts

Doing great on the water intake! At least 2.5 litres a day!

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

V on 10/22/2012:
I love your plan for the week :) Sorry that the weekend didn't last nearly as long as ya wanted..


inmorning on 10/23/2012:
Days off never quite last as long as I want them to either! ;-)

Great plan for the week and I love the massage as a reward for all your hard work!

Good start to the weekend so far! I went to the hockey game last night, where my team WON in a very close match! And I got in some decent sleep overnight.

Today my plan is to putz around the house and get some yardwork done, then i'm heading to Grandma's to check out the new carpet she had installed yesterday. She's so excited about it, and i'm so happy to see her that way! It's the little things that really make us happy!!!

Lunch yesterday was soup and a ham sandwich at a local fundraising event. Dinner was leftover salmon and brown rice.

I don't know what my meals will be for today, but i'm guessing i'll get something tasty when i'm at Grandma's :)

Have a great day everyone!

I love hockey games too. They are so fun!


nunnermack on 10/21/2012:
Have fun with your Grandma!! I used to spoile my grannie when she was around and I have such good memories of her. BUT....when it came to her birthday and I would go card shopping, the cards would say, "I remember all the cookies you used to bake..." I laughed because my grannie did NOT cook or bake or knit!! She loved shoe shopping!!!

Well, it's finally Friday!

Being the truly, awesomely stellar individual that I am, I SLEPT IN and was a whole hour late to work! HAPPY FRIDAY ALL!!!!

LOL.

Obviously the priority for today is purchasing an alarm clock that will WORK and WAKE ME UP when it's supposed to.

Of course, i'll do that AFTER I work back the hour I lost this morning.

I decided to make some white pasta and some whole wheat pasta, so that I could have what I wanted (the whole wheat), and my friends could choose what they wanted to have. It was really quite a lovely meal; I was happy with how it turned out. And not quite so happy with the dishes that I left for myself to do today.

Breakfast - mocha

Lunch - TBD

PM Snack - pudding

Dinner - TBD (likely leftovers; time to clean out the fridge!)

Water - 2.5 litres

Make it a HEALTHY WEEKEND everyone!

*yawn*

Is it Friday yet?

... how 'bout now?

 

I didn't really get as much done as I wanted to yesterday, but it was still a pretty good day. I was home for a few minutes before heading out to a friend's, and managed to get some cleaning done around the house.

Dinner wasn't healthy; I was being treated by a friend and I always have such a hard time saying no or asking for healthier alternatives. We had ribs, chicken wings, deep fried zuchinni, ceasar salad, fries, and I had a slice of garlic toast as well.

Today will be better, because it's Friday.

Oh.

No it's not. Geez.

Tonight i'm hosting a dinner with two friends and we're watching some Ghost Whisperer. I'm making crockpot chicken with veggie sauce, pasta (white pasta because my friends hate whole wheat pasta) with some grated mozzarella, and roasted brussell sprouts. Things are much more healthy when i'm in control of the food preparation!

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

Umpqua on 10/18/2012:
That dinner with your friend sounds SO good, but so does your healthy dinner tonight. Enjoy your time with your friends!


LifeInATeaCup on 10/18/2012:
Ahaha :') At least friday is only a day away! And it should go fast with your friends, I hope you have a great night!! :)


IndependentEm93 on 10/18/2012:
C'mon friday! =)


thenewMLE on 10/18/2012:
IT's Friday for me!!! I'm not working tomorrow! Your dinner sounds great and I have been using Barilla PLUS which is a multi grain pasta and you can't tell that it is wheat. It doesn't have a very brown color and the texture is great. It is kind of a darker golden color but my hubby (who does not like wheat products) thinks this is wonderful! We used the angel hair for the Puttenesca Sauce Monday and for the chicken tetrazini last night. Also we use a veggie pasta which is the multi colors and it is duram semolina pasta which is also healthy. I put that in my Pasta salad last week and the girls didn't even realize it wasn't white pasta! Hope Friday hurries up and get here for you!! Have fun tonight!


V on 10/18/2012:
Both dinners sounds good to me.. I made wheat pasta for friends who claim that they could tell the difference in taste, flavor..I snuck in that Barrila Plus and they didn't even know the difference..Hahaha Well good news is one more sleep til FRIDAY :)

legcramps - Wednesday Oct 17, 2012

Weight: 166.0

I was busy yesterday and didn't get my scheduled workouts in. Instead I spent over an hour getting new tires put on the car, and then something like three hours helping a friend set up her computer. There went my evening LOL!

I had secretly hoped to wake up early this morning and get an insanity workout in, but my sleep patterns this week have been hogwash and I barely opened my eyes to press snooze on my alarm when it went off at 6 a.m.

And my eyes were still tiny little slits after my usual Wake Up Shower.

In leiu of not getting enough sleep, I treated myself to a store-bought mocha this morning before work. In fact, it made me late to work because I went through the drive-thru instead of going inside. It's funny how little I care about being late to work today. It's probably because i'm not entirely awake yet.

Later i'll be trying to squeeze about twenty to-do's into the space of two hours so that I can go to a friend's for dinner and Survivor tonight. One of those twenty things being working on a blog about my travels this summer and sending it away to be printed. So excited!

Breakfast - mocha

Lunch - cafeteria tbd

PM Snack - pudding

Dinner - salmon and brown rice leftovers (skipped dinner yesterday so I still have these in the fridge)

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

nunnermack on 10/17/2012:
Good luck with the blog and have a happy Wednesday!!!
