legcramps - Friday Apr 01, 2011

Weight: 164.0

Yay for Friday!

Yesterday I walked halfway home after work, so I skipped the shred session I was supposed to do even though it only took me 15 minutes. It's on the list of To-Do's for today, so long as the rest of the list doesn't get any longer. Leftovers for dinner, chatted with friends, did some cleaning and HELLO 10pm, time for bed I guess.

When I woke up this morning I contemplated getting the shred workout over with, then decided that I wanted to walk to work instead (30 minutes one way). We've been getting really nice weather lately, and I just love being out in the crisp air during a nice peaceful walk to work. The walk back in the afternoon? Not as much fun. Anyways, so I had to rush a bit to get ready for work, and didn't have time to make up a lunch. Basically, I just grabbed my water and took off. Breakfast? Oops. Hair? In a ponytail. Makeup? Badly done. I ended up wiping most of it off when I got to work and looked at myself in the mirror. The sweet news is that I brought along a pair of American Eagle dress shoes to work in and they are SLAMMIN' sexy with my purple painted toenails. Picture? Sure! Don't mind the fuzziness...

see that tatt? it's not a cockroach. it's a lady bug.

I hit up the cafeteria to see what they had for lunch and managed to choose some healthy options as well as some yogurt for an afternoon snack. Picture? Sure! Teehee.

(part of my lunch. i actually hate radishes, but whatever.)

My To-Do's are pretty enormous today mainly because it's PAY DAY and I really need to get to the grocery store and put gas in the car, but I also have to clean the house as I am getting a visit from my Dad tomorrow. It's going to be a busy evening, but thank goodness i'll have the weekend to relax :)

Have an awesome weekend everyone!

Progress as of today: 11 lbs lost so far, only 9 lbs to go!

Umpqua on 04/01/2011:
I love the shoes and the tat :) I hope you have an excellent weekend!


biscottibody59 on 04/01/2011:
It's funny I always recommend that site and I use the "resting metabolic rate" calculator, but for some reason this was the first time I used the cyberkitchen portion--it's a good tool.

Sounds like a good fit for you!

No it doesn't look like a roach; I love ladybugs! Good for you walking to work!


sweetpea1977 on 04/01/2011:
Great job on walking to work. Love your shoes, nails, and ladybug!!

Have a great weekend!


V on 04/01/2011:
Girl you are insane!!! LOL!! I love it!! Good to see I am not the only one here who has fun all by themselves :)



legcramps - Thursday Mar 31, 2011

SUCCESS!!!

Yesterday I fed my friend's cat after work (thankfully it looks like he's actually starting to eat a little more. I was worried for him at first because it sounded like he'd been crying all night and he didn't seem interested in eating). My friend is back at home today, so hopefully the kitty feels better now that mama's back :)

So it was too wet and mucky outside to run. I was feeling far too lazy to drive to the gym. This is starting to sound bad, but there is a silver lining. I do have an old treadmill at home, so I got changed and started it up. Granted, I didn't go very far, but I made my goal for the day - to go for a nice short run - so i'm happy and feeling very successful. With warm-up and cool-down, I was at it for half an hour, which made the run about 20 minutes long. Though it did make me realize that I do need a different at-home treadmill if I want to run. It was a struggle not to fall off the thing during the running segments.

After the run I did my stretching and seemed to be bursting with energy. I felt really great. So I did a few chores and filled out my tax forms (boo). I went to bed early again and slept through most of the night. This morning I was on autopilot until I "became conscious" in the shower when I felt my leg CRAMP! My left calf. Yikes. Thankfully the shower was hot, so I just lifted my calf to the warm spray and let it work itself out. I did some more stretching after my shower and a quick ab routine of 60 crunches, then got ready for work.

There are so many great fixes for legcramps, including both exercise and proper diet. I've been doing well, this is the first one i've had in many moons ;) Last night after my run, I did 40 ankle raises against the wall. I'm hoping that eventually my calf muscles will grow stronger and the legcramps will no longer be a problem. There is hope for my future!

Progress as of today: 11 lbs lost so far, only 9 lbs to go!

V on 03/31/2011:
Good Job on getting the exercise and burst of welcomed energy!! I hope it lasts for you throughout the day!!!


Umpqua on 03/31/2011:
Treadmill and ab crunches sound great! Any exercise is good exercise :)


liza36 on 03/31/2011:
Nice job on the exercise. Good tip on how to stretch for leg cramps. Hope that doesn't happen again!

LA LA LA LA LA

^ that's me going crazy.

This week at work has been wierd so far, and it's only Wednesday! I've also had too much coffee this morning and I think it's affecting my thought processes. Thank goodness I had a wonderful night's sleep and woke up this morning on the right side of the bed :0

Yesterday after work I ran over to a friend's place to feed and cuddle her cat (i'm looking after him while she's on vacation), then went home to look after Dog. I cooked up more food for the rest of the week so that I at least don't have to worry about lunch each day, then I cleaned and cleaned the kitchen. After all that, I gathered my work clothes for the rest of the week and set them out in one of the spare rooms that I use as my closet. Then I put together some workout outfits and set them aside. Then I put my running shoes and hand weights in a corner of the living room along with the Shred DVD, and set out my cold weather running clothes and jacket.

No more excuses! Everything is ready to go, all I need to do now is make the decision to do something each day. This is one mental game that i'm going to win I tell 'ya.

On the slate for today is a nice short run and if I can't do it outside I WILL go to the gym. One little run, that's it. That's not too much to ask.

Progress as of today: 11 lbs lost so far, only 9 lbs to go!

lifestylechange on 03/30/2011:
I think I'm going crazy too sometimes.... It's probably just mental/physical exhaustion! Thanks for your comment! Great attitude! Have a great day!


liza36 on 03/30/2011:
You really are prepared - nice going! I find that planning ahead is key. You've gone the extra step in laying things out, cooking food up for the week. You'll definitely be successful!


Umpqua on 03/30/2011:
I hope you have an excellent run, whether indoors or out!


V on 03/30/2011:
LOL!!! i can totally relate to the crazies!!!! hahaha

HAPPY TUESDAY!

Yesterday I made fish cakes with potatoes and cod for dinner. I got my share of olive oil in my system for sure. Um... yeah, i'll stop there.

I also had cooked broccoli and some rice. I don't know why I doubled up on the carbs.

Grrr! I need to get my butt moving! I don't have a good reason for not exercising; I don't have any reasons. I need some motivation! I really wish I could get myself moving; I need to find a way to just do it. Gosh - just do it, legcramps!

I woke up this morning and realized that it was SNOWING outside... really? really, spring? what is it, do you miss December or something? 'cause I don't. Noooo, I sure don't. Man up, spring. Seriously. Man up. I'm hoping that if my complaint is documented, someone "up there" will read it and do something about it. Mother Nature, this complaint is reference #99837845756477.

I'm slowly working on my income taxes. Did you know according to Revenue Canada, if an investment doesn't earn more than $50 of interest in a calendar year, you won't receive a T-5 slip to claim it on your tax forms? That means that I had to phone a Government Department FIVE times, each time being on hold more than half an hour, just to get the amount of interest earned so that I could report it. My complaint, besides the weather? Why should we have to run around after YOU, Mr. Government? Mr. Government? You need to man up, too.

Well, that's a lot of venting. I'm not actually as angry as this entry makes it seem. There are worse things out there, and i'm fortunate that I only have to concern myself with a few issues at the moment. This too shall pass.

Progress as of today: 11 lbs lost so far, only 9 lbs to go!

Umpqua on 03/29/2011:
LOL, my hubby tortures our nieces with that song so you are not alone ;) Snow and taxes, ugh. I hope you get that done quickly!


lifestylechange on 03/29/2011:
Very cute! I hope you have a great day and that you get some more positive, uplifting energy to carry you thru the rest of your day:)


sweetpea1977 on 03/29/2011:
Yea, man up Spring!!

I hope today turns out to be a good day for you!!


V on 03/29/2011:
LOL!!!! I love the cartoon and sorry I have planted that song in your head, which BTW Who hasn't heard of peanutbutter jelly time??? HUH? What does she live in a cave? LOL JK I love that you too file your grievances along with docket #s, I too use this system, that way I can just roll off that reference number and no more questions needed :) Have a good one!!


V on 03/29/2011:
So far so good on the Jacked :) no jitters or sleeplessness :)


moogy on 03/29/2011:
Oh no!! Still more snow, that is a good reference number I used it to get Autumn and it worked!!!! LOL Re: your tax issue - all I read was blah blah blah - total blank in that area. Come on legcramps lets get you moving, use that frustation against Mr. Government (had to be a man didn't it?) to get you moving!!:)


moogy on 03/29/2011:
Hey!!!!! I haven't heard the peanut butter jelly song - glad I haven't, I'd probably be singing it all day too!!

Good Morning!

I feel well rested heading into the workweek; I only hope it lasts until this weekend :)

I was able to make it into the city on Wednesday for the seminar, but it was a stressful drive with the road conditions as they were. Thursday was spent relaxing at home and trying to release the pent-up anxiety of the day before.

On Friday I cleaned house and did some grocery shopping with the little money I had left over in my budget. Then I went for supper with a friend and blew my budget out of the water. I've no idea how i'll make it until pay day :(

Saturday went by in a bit of a blur; I did laundry and cleaned up in the kitchen, did some cooking, and cleaned out another box that I still hadn't unpacked from my move. I now have a few things I can sell in the spring; hopefully that will bring in some extra money for when slo-pitch season starts up.

On Sunday I watched episodes of Supernatural and cuddled with Dog. Last night she took up the middle of the bed and snored the whole night through; I didn't get a whole lot of sleep and it annoyed me so much that I actually woke up angry this morning :( but I got over it quickly :)

I was going to get up early and do the Shred DVD, but it didn't end up happening. I am hoping to do it after work today. I also want to shovel the back walkway and drive; then i'll have to consider what to make for dinner.

I can't believe it's already March 28th and there is still piles and piles of snow here. I need some warmth, this cold dreary weather is sapping all of my energy.

Have a great week everyone!

Progress as of today: 11 lbs lost so far, only 9 lbs to go!

liza36 on 03/28/2011:
Isn't that Shred DVD hard? I'm SO out of shape, so for me it was pretty tiring. I know you are a gym-goer, which I am not, so maybe that's the difference. Anyway, have a good day, despite the piles of snow!


Umpqua on 03/28/2011:
I'm glad you got some rest in and hopefully you're feeling energized. It's finally supposed to get warm here this week, we still have snow in the backyard and it sucks. I hope you have a great week!


Supercheese on 03/28/2011:
Still snow? Geez. Hopefully it will all go away. Have a great day!!!


moogy on 03/28/2011:
I can't believe you still have snow, my hot weather was suppose to get to you by now, I wonder where it went. It has to go away soon. Why on earth didn't you push to dog off the bed. Funny girl!! LOL I think that the shovelling with be your exercise for the day. I hope you have a good day despite the unreasonable weather conditions. You should complain to someone, not us, we can't help!!!! LOL Hugs.


sweetpea1977 on 03/28/2011:
Wow, its almost April and you still have snow?! I hope spring arrives soon!


V on 03/28/2011:
Slow pitch :) I am sure you will be all ampy when that starts!! Hey i have been meaning to tell you that I love your profile pic on FB, you are looking very sexy to me ;) LOl Is that a new do you are sporting?? Dare I ask when your next payday is?? As long as you have food, you will be alright, well that is unless you don't have gas money :( Anyways sometimes these things happen, usually when it does for me.....Dad?

Dangit, I was going to bring my camera to work with me this morning and take a couple pictures for you guys... of... I don't know; things? Like my bulletin board, my new tape roll (it's lime green) - you know, things like that. It's really outta control up in my office!!!

So today is my last day of work for the week - YAHOO! Tomorrow I head into the city for an all day seminar, then having dinner with my Dad and heading back home. With the weather the way it is, i'm really hoping I make it there and back in one piece. Then Thursday and Friday I am hoping for nice weather so that I can clean out the garage and get it ready for a garage sale that my Mom is wanting me to host for her.

Guess what kind of craziness happened yesterday? I got a new-to-me TV set! My tv is only a 17" and everyone (I mean, everyone) bugs me about getting a bigger one. I've never felt the need because, to be truthful, I watch a lot of things off my computer monitor and only use the tv as background noise more than anything. Anyways, a friend of mine said her and her hubs have an old tv just sitting in their basement not being used, so they brought it over last night. It's a 27" - WOWZERS, that really makes a difference  who knew?!

I am blessed by friends who help me to live a better and richer life. And I don't mean because they bring me bigger tv's; I mean because they are right there beside me, ready to help and give and advise with every step I take.

I hope you are as blessed as I am!!

Yesterday eats - oatmeal, coffee, water, baked salmon and brown rice (lunch and dinner), granola bar x 2, smoothie.

I gotta take it easy on the granola bars. Well, that shouldn't be too difficult now that they're all eaten up :)

I just read over my entry so far. Dudes, I am so freakin' boring.

Compared to most, I have a tiny TV too. Good friends are a true blessing. Have a good one!


loveray on 03/22/2011:
blessings are so wonderful and glad you have many. congrats on the new TV!


moogy on 03/22/2011:
Funny, I was think how 'up' you were sounding!! I have been noticing that lately. You are sounding happier with yourself and things in general. Plus a big TV, gotta make you happy. I love my TV, I can't get over how flat it is, like a pack of cards thick. Amazing, mind you I still can't figure out how they get the picture on the screen so you will understand how impressed I am with 'plasma' very scifi!!!LOL


hopingforhealth on 03/22/2011:
Woo-hoo! There's nothing like an early "Friday"! Enjoy your trip and your dinner. It sounds like you are lucky to have some wonderful friends. PS- regarding your Audrey Hepburn quote below, I feel 100% the same!

"I have to be alone very often. I'd be quite happy if I spent from Saturday night until Monday morning alone in my apartment. That's how I refuel." Audrey Hepburn
 
That's so true for me; being alone relaxes and readies me for the week ahead.
 
Friday:
- I was able to remember to keep the day meatless; I made spaghetti with vegetable sauce, baked carrot sticks (hhhhhotttt!) and mixed salad. I also mixed together yogurt and berries and some nutri-whip for dessert. Lovely! I had enough leftover that I also went meatless on Saturday. I wonder if I can bank that for this coming Friday?!
 
Saturday:
- I ate mostly leftovers and lots of the dessert that i'd made Friday. Other than doing a few errands and cleaning house, I didn't get much done. No running. Lazy. I indulged in a mocha ;)
 
Sunday:
- I still had leftover spaghetti, but I baked some salmon in the oven and it was yummy... also cooked some brown rice so that I had lunch already made for today. I'm a smartie!
Monday:
- Plan is much the same as usual. A friend is supposed to be bringing over a bigger television for me to use (the one I use now is a 17" hahahahahahaha), then another friend is coming to wax legs later tonight.
 
Be Smarties Today!

Oh, how I LOOOVE Fridays!

I fully understand above is a picture of Garfield, the cat. However, this is more than likely what Dog is thinking right about now. In approximately 20 minutes, I will be taking her to get her hair cut! FINALLY! I'm sure she's been waiting for this day forever :)

Thursday:

Eats - oatmeal, coffee, water, chicken with brown rice and veggies, kashi bar x 2, beef roast with potatoes, corn and peas, apple crumble with 1/3 cup ice cream

I truly hope the ice cream doesn't come back to bite me in the you-know-what. This is a lot of eats but I fully enjoyed :)

Exercise - what's that?

Friday Plan:

Eats - NO MEAT! Must remember. Oatmeal, coffee, water, brown rice and veggies, granola bar? banana? pasta with veggie sauce and a big salad with cucumber & dressing.

I'm having company for dinner tonight. I think with the pasta dish I will satisfy their hunger and my need to not eat meat today. The veggie sauce sounds wonderful - can't wait to taste it!

Exercise - sitting on my butt and getting my toenails done :)

I know I had more to say, but I have to take Dog to be groomed now. Perhaps i'll update later when I remember what more I had to say ;)

**Update:

I remembered what I wanted to talk about. I wanted to say that I have a head cold. I'm not sure if it's allergy-related or if it's a virus going around. Either way, it's really bugging me. So at lunchtime, I took Benedryl before starting my afternoon work. I accidentally took a nighttime capsule.

I need a nap. Even my thoughts have slowed to a crawl. Why did I do this? My afternoon is going to drag on until it drives me crazy. I can hear the darn clock ticking, no lie.

Progress as of today: 11 lbs lost so far, only 9 lbs to go!

geevee on 03/18/2011:
Being able to restrict yourself to only 1/3C ice cream is real control! Ahhh, to think of the era when I'd have a BIG bowl of it and then often, have another! I cana't have it in my house.


liza36 on 03/18/2011:
Love your exercise for today, haha! Enjoy your company, dinner sounds delish.


sweetpea1977 on 03/18/2011:
Great job on the ice cream. I wouldnt be able to do that!

I hope you survived today on that nighttime pill. Sleep well tonight and get well soon!


biscottibody59 on 03/18/2011:
Hope you have a nice dinner party--sounds good!


Horn_Of_Plenty on 03/18/2011:
i know what you mean by needing a nap! oh my. well, at least you didn't have my afternoon - major bloating and far too few personal/private bathrooms to use...

i'm very pumped for 129...i may even schedule a TWO hour massage, i have a lot of prepaid passages just waiting to be used - probably have about 4. so i'll combine two one-hours for a nice, long, rub! haha

i hope you did remember your meatless friday today. i believe meatless fridays are easy these days...there's just so much darn food out there to choose from, especially if you like dairy. it's sooo easily to avoid meat, especially if you like veggie burgers, fish, eggs....i feel like the options are quite endless! pizza....well, that's not the best choice, but it IS GOOD.

get some rest and enjoy your weekend.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 03/18/2011:
by the way, you are at your lowest weight of the year right now....so now is your chance to really make a move, make a change, and drop LOWER! you'll love the feel of your body!

i was putting lotion on, the day before my binge, and i couldn't believe how much leaner my whole body felt, especially my a$$, after just a couple pounds lost! it definitely surprised me :-)

Happy St. Patty's Day!

On Wednesday:

Eats - oatmeal, coffee, water, baked cod with brown rice and veggies, 2 apples, baked chicken breast and salad with cucumber & dressing, fruit smoothie.

I added some spinach to my smoothie; I think I got a full dose of veggies for the day which hardly ever happens. Yay!

Exercise - I made it to the gym. There was only one other person there when I got there, so I hurridly got changed and grabbed my favorite treadmill. 2 miles in 27 minutes including a 4 minute warm-up.

Thursday's Plan:

Eats - oatmeal, coffee, water, baked chicken breast with salad and cucumber, kashi bar, baked fish with brown rice and veggies, smoothie

Exercise - Might try to fit in a shred workout today after work, depending on my mood ;)

I'm finding it difficult lately to want to exercise, which is not myself. I'm glad that my eating is as clean as it's been, but it would sure be nice to supplement with more exercise. It just makes me feel so much better when I get a workout in. I'm not sure of the reason for my exercise phobia but I really hope I get over it soon. I have faith that i'll come around soon enough :)

Progress as of today: 11 lbs lost so far, only 9 lbs to go!

liza36 on 03/17/2011:
I've never wanted to exercise, so unfortunatley, I can't relate. But I'm sure you'll get your groove back soon. Just the fact that you continue to exercise is a huge plus!

What delicious sounding meals; just what I like!

sweetpea1977 on 03/17/2011:

I think you'll get your fire back. Sometimes the only thing that works for me is just forcing myself to do it knowing that my body needs it. And I always feel a ton better afterwards!

Happy Wednesday!

On Tuesday:

Eats - oatmeal, coffee, water, baked chicken breast and salad with cucumber & dressing, baked cod with brown rice and veggies, fruit smoothie.

I forgot how yummy those smoothies are - just the thing :)

Exercise - I didn't do anything in regards to exercise because I wanted to get to sleep early so that I could wake up for a morning workout. I went to bed around 9pm.

I woke up this morning at 4:30am and groaned out loud. Half an hour later, I woke up again and tossed and turned until the alarm went off at 5:30 and groaned out loud again. Dog came into the room and looked at me with her head cocked to the side. I imagined her asking me so... are you getting up? or what? huh? huh?

I did not get up. Groan. Mornings are so hard for me. I had everything ready for me to go to the gym, but I just couldn't get my pansy butt out of bed.

Wednesday's Plan:

Eats - oatmeal, coffee, water, baked cod with brown rice and veggies, apples, baked chicken breast with salad and cucumber, kashi bar? smoothie?

Exercise - I either need to workout after work today or try again tomorrow morning. I brought my workout clothes with me to work, so I truly hope I have the energy and motivation to go straight to the gym at 4:30pm.

On the up side, my eating has been very good over the last few days; weeks even. I'm pleased about that, now I just need the extra exercise to boost my metabolism so I can start losing some weight! I might consider starting Shred over again if I increasingly find myself unable to get up early enough in the morning. I only need half an hour at home, so I would only need to wake up at 6:30am.

The weather is beautiful here these days, we're starting to see consistent temperatures above zero celsius; i'm scared that the snow will melt too quickly and bring flooding into my basement :( as it is, I can barely drive my car through the streets and alleys because there's so much... mush. Gotta love spring!

Progress as of today: 11 lbs lost so far, only 9 lbs to go!

I hear ya on the morning workouts. In theory, I'd love to get up earlier to exercise, and get it out of the way. It just doesn't happen. I go to bed way too late to get up early. As it is, my alarm goes off at 5 am to get ready for work. I hit the snooze a few too many times before getting up. The good side is you have an alternative workout plan, by taking your clothes to work and hitting the gym. Good for you!

Sounds like you have put a bit of a block up on the exercise front. That doesn't sound like you. I am used to you challenging yourself to do better. I hope you find that enthusiasm again, maybe it's under the bed!!!! LOL
