legcramps - Friday Jun 10, 2011

Weight: 164.0

1.5 mile walk this morning with Walking Buddy.

Tired and zombie-like. Slightly annoyed. Sounds like the usual Friday morning ;)

My Mom was at my house yesterday getting ready for her garage sale tomorrow, so I was busy moving things, setting up, and wiping tables. That's about the only exercise I got yesterday, and I loved having the day off! Days off are much more enjoyable when you know you've earned them.

This week has been so freakin' long, I am so glad it's over.

Yesterday: toast, smoothie, coffee, water, 6" subway turkey with rice and broccoli, almonds, beef patty with pasta and broccoli, more toast, another smoothie.

My goal today is not to eat anymore bread besides what I had for breakfast. Leftover dinner for lunch, and i'm thinking about splurging for take-out sushi for dinner. Might as well eat out four times this week instead of just three, no?

Weekend plans: Tonight Mom is coming to finish setting up so i'll be helping her. Tomorrow I plan to run 3 miles outside, then cut grass and pull weeds, then going to the races for the evening (free ticket from a friend includes a steak supper! woot!). Sunday I gotta figure out what's happening with my garden.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! See 'ya on the flip side!

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

Have a good garage sale! Enjoy sushi and have a nice weekend.

legcramps - Thursday Jun 09, 2011

Weight: 164.0

Yesterday: toast with almond butter, smoothie, coffee, beef and potatoes, subway 6" turkey, blueberry vodka with wildberry juice, four litres water.

Yesterday was much better than Tuesday, even though both lunch and dinner were ordered and not homemade. I was feeling lazy. Probably from overeating on Tuesday.

The ballgame was good. We won, and we were playing really well. I didn't get as much exercise as I thought I might; or maybe I did and i'm just starting to get used to it? Anyways, no sweating from me! And we played for almost two hours!

I was bugged constantly for drinking so much water and then later for not having more than one drink. After awhile, the teasing got really old and I think that's when everything else started to go downhill. There was so much drama going on last night. One couple were arguing like three year olds, yelling back and forth at each other; two guys were arguing about how to play ball, one kept saying "because I said so"... suffice to say, I went home early, around 11pm. I wish some people could realize how badly they behave when they're drinking. Perhaps I only noticed because I was the sober one.

I pretty well went straight to bed, but I woke up this morning so darn tired that I was wishing I had the day off! Apparently, I need my sleep. Hopefully some coffee will fix that right up so that I can get through the day at work.

I'm realizing that "A" is very immature. He sent me a really stupid text the other day, and my respect for the guy went from 8 to 3 in about two seconds. I really don't feel like carving time out of my day for people who will simply waste it in the end. If I was in "Just Having Fun" mode, it might be different, but i'm not. Maybe this is just Thursday talking, and Friday will think something different ;)

Anyways, on to my day! I hope each of you have a crazy-awesome-super day today.

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

liza36 on 06/09/2011:
I don't drink, and so have never understood the whole drinking thing - doesn't sound or look fun to me at all! I wouldn't be able to stand being around people where were behaving that way either.

Have a great day!

hollybelle on 06/09/2011:
Sigh - we do change, don't we - I used to be about partying and the like and dating and having a particular kind of fun. I think if I was single now I would look at men from an "interview" type of angle. You know, as when you have a job opening and you talk to several people but you don't hire them all and the interview is not a relationship. I'm probably a little nuts on this subject, though so......

~Moody~ on 06/09/2011:
So glad that your team won last night, Yay!! Sorry the after game gathering wasn't much fun for ya..It IS rather annoying being around of buzzed/drunk people while being the only sober one..LOL

Ok, so who is "A"...You may have mentioned him before and I missed it..Is he your b/f..or someone you're just kinda dating?? (nosey huh?) LOL

Wishing you a great day, and I hope you get plenty of rest tonight!!

V on 06/09/2011:
Slo pitch musta been really slow if you didn't work up a sweat..And A must be short for A$$H@l& LOL!!! Tell him to get to steppin and on to the next...LOL Love ya girl!!

legcramps - Wednesday Jun 08, 2011

Weight: 164.0

Man, I am just hungry all the freakin' time.

Yesterday I had toast for breakfast, a salmon burger for lunch, dried mango in the afternoon, salmon, broccoli and rice for dinner AND a handful of almonds AND then toast again! Oy! Why? And by "AND then toast again!" I don't mean just one slice... this is not conducive to weight loss, I am well aware.

I watched the movie "Saint Ralph" last night - has anyone here seen it? I loved it; I even cried through a couple of scenes!

This morning I dragged my butt out of bed and hit the treadmill again. Just over two miles. I had some... ahem... digestive issues throughout the run due to last night's gorge fest, but I got it done and then did my ab routine afterwards. The good thing about running on a treadmill is that the bathroom is close by. I'm hoping to go for a three mile run outside on Saturday morning and I hope it goes better than the last few runs i've had. Must be patient. And determined.

I play ball tonight so i'm thinking my legs will really be hurting after today; I only hope that they will get me through the game but right now my muscles are feeling the torture I put them through this morning! Thankfully, no shin pain. Knock on wood.

I've already had a litre of water and my post-workout smoothie (sans alcohol, Just Sayin!). I want to get down at least four litres today, with the workout and playing ball. It's supposed to be nice outside so i'll probably get a good sweat-on at the game. I brought toast with almond butter to work with me, and I have some leftover rice and broccoli for lunch. All my dried mango is gone! I ate it all up yesterday. Boo!

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

getmebackto150 on 06/08/2011:
I hear you on being hungry all the time... It totally happens to me often... I'm not sure what brings it on but it is hard core when it does come... Somthing that (sometimes!) works for me is to keep snackable veggies around (grape tomatoes, pepper slices, carrot sticks, etc) and when I "NEED TO SNACK" have those... Sometimes it keeps me from eating somthing else... sometimes it doesn't work, but sometimes is better than never right? Have a great day!

~Moody~ on 06/08/2011:
Well at least the foods you ate weren't bad..eh, toast isn't the best I suppose, but it's better than gorging on chips or something right?

Great job getting up and hitting the treadmill~and I hope you shins hold up tonight!

Thanks so much for your comment you left me yesterday~Yes, it wasn't a healthy situation..going back and forth..I'm done being a yo yo and I trust that someday someone will come into my life who will appreciate me for who I am~and will cherish what I have to offer..I pray the same for you.

Have a great game tonight!!

hollybelle on 06/08/2011:
Do you think the hunger is your body's response to the big run you did? I know when I do EXTRA exercise it takes my body awhile to readjust to the supply and demand (so to speak) of the input and output routine......hang in there - this too shall pass.

Umpqua on 06/08/2011:
Salmon burger and the dried mango sound yummy, I think you're doing just fine with food (but I understand what a temptation the bread is). Have a good one!

moogy on 06/08/2011:
Hungry days are a real nuisance, but good for you for running. I hope that you have a better day today. Shame about the thyme, mine is overrunning it's pot and I am going to have to cut it back after it flowers, I love the little blue blooms. I love thyme in cooking as well, it is my favourite herb, I have some chives that are just recovering from flowering and summer heat as well. Maybe you would be better with a pot in the kitchen if you have a sunny spot. Have a good day legcramps:)

I went walking with Walking Buddy this morning for 1.5 miles.

Dinner last night was salmon burgers and broccoli.

Breakfast this morning is rye toast with almond butter.

Lots of dried mango still to eat!

I'm posting twice in one day because a) I really miss you guys and maybe I feel a little lonely :( and b) I have some pictures to share! Yay!

These are the branches of the crabapple tree in my backyard. It finally bloomed this year (I thought it was dead) and it's absolutely GORGEOUS!

If I could be around this kind of beauty each and every day, i'd be so happy. Like, all the time. For sure.

The smoothie-making process. Yum! In the mix is orange juice, spinach and mixed frozen berries. I love summer!

The end result. Drank out of a jam jar. Yes, i'm cool.

This was taken last fall, but I really like my hair in it. I'm wondering if I should get it cut again that way.

My hair tonight! Maybe a little wild, but you can tell it's longer and shaggier. Gosh, that Old Navy tank looks a little tight. Good to know.

End slideshow! G'night!

I am happily beat today :)

(obviously not in the literal sense of the word. That wouldn't be very happy, would it?)

Yesterday I woke up early, woke Mom up by phoning her much too early ;) and set about moving the garage sale stuff into the garage. It took all morning and some pretty heavy lifting; I bought another second hand treadmill and it's huge! Thankfully, I had two very good friends help me out and one loaned me her truck for the morning. Pieces of cakes! I took them out for lunch afterwards and we sat on the patio outside to eat - it was a wonderful day weather-wise!

Oh, and on Saturday night the power went out all through town and Dog and I played a game of hide-and-seek where she got freaked out by the candlelight and hid behind a chair all night long. Scaredy-Dog.

Sunday afternoon I cut the grass and pulled weeds for three hours. As a reward for working so hard, I received another sunburn. Happy happy, but damn the yard looks awesome.

I had a beef burger and a crapload of broccoli for dinner. My intention for the week is to overload on broccoli. Why? Because. I also popped a handful of almonds in my mouth at some point.

This morning I was awake by 6am and I crawled down the stairs and did some stretching, then jumped on the treadmill and squeaked out 2.9 miles. It felt really easy; i'm thinking there must be something wacky with the readouts on it but i'll take it! Woohoo! Then I did my ab routine and got ready for work.

I brought a litre of water, my post-workout smoothie and a coffee to work with me this morning and I drank it all! Now i'm working on my second litre of water and munching on some strawberries. And there are dried mangoes here too. Yum.

I planned on running this morning, but it hasn't happened yet and it's already 12:30pm :0

I've been busy running errands and marking items for a garage sale next weekend. I've also been moving some big-ticket items - my treadmill, to be exact. I found another one for sale that is newer and hopefully better than the one I have, so i'll be picking it up tomorrow morning sometime. So I had to move this one out of the way. Geez, it's heavy!

I am also contemplating cutting the grass today, however it is only 7 degrees celsius out there and it might be a bit too chilly for this girl! I hear tomorrow afternoon is supposed to be a lot nicer out, so maybe i'll do it then instead. That means, aside from a lot of cleaning and laundry - I have nothing on the agenda for today! Well, besides running, which I still intend to do as long as I can get my butt moving in that direction ;)

Have a good day all!

Hope you got your run in! It always amazes me (for some odd reason) that even when I get up with the intention of getting out & walking by "such & such" time, it HOURS before I get to it!

What happened to lawn dude?? Oh well doing yardwork can be strenuous right??

On Wednesday for lunch I had a chicken burger with fries, and in the afternoon I snacked on dried mango. I bought a huge container of dried mango, so you'll be seeing a lot of that in my entries ;)

I was really dragging in the afternoon, so I bought myself some chocolate and ate half of it. I left the other half here at work and I might eat the rest today. The surge of sugar was just what I needed, which makes me think maybe my blood sugar levels were low. I need to get some test strips and test my sugar levels more often.

For dinner on Wednesday I had some broccoli and chicken.

Wednesday night we played ball and then retired to my deck for snacks and drinks. I made my delicious smoothies and boy it was hard to restrict myself to only having three drinks! I was really sucking down the water in order to stop myself from chugging the deliciousness that is The Smoothie.

I was slightly headache-y Thursday morning, but all in all I felt pretty good. I spent Thursday the way I had planned to spend Thursday - watching tv and drinking lots of water. It was lovely! The extra rest was just what I needed because I feel great today. Unfortunately, i've run out of bottled water at home so i'll need to remember to stock up before I go home today.

I have a few things to move this weekend but other than that i'm hoping for a quiet one! I desperately need to cut the grass so I hope it doesn't rain anytime soon (but i'm pretty sure it will. boo.), and I should get into the flower beds and clean them up too. I need a refresher course as to what is a weed and what isn't!

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

KathyBlue on 06/03/2011:
ahh blood sugar is easy to test, that's right! Good idea to check it every once in a while! :) Broccoli, yummmmmmmmmmmmy! :-) Boo for the rain... lol. Anyway, a bit of rain is always welcome by the flowers and grass, makes them greener! :) Have a nice weekend, girlie!

hollybelle on 06/03/2011:
Thank you for the "you rock" compliment in relation to my exercise. I am doing better and better. I am trying to exercise more often. I probably make it 5 days a week. Good luck on the yard work this weekend. I'll be right there with you (but in KY!).

  I was successful in once again forcing myself awake this morning in order to go for a run. I wanted to do an easy 2 mile recovery run. I ended up doing just over that in almost 30 minutes, so it was definitely a nice, easy run, although my shins do hurt so i'm wearing compression socks to work today. Stylin!

The pic above is what I looked like when I got back home. After I took this pic, I went to my yoga mat and did some light stretching, my foam rolling and my ab routine and then jumped in the shower to get ready for work.

I didn't have time for breakfast (I never do), so I decided to make myself a frozen recovery smoothie. I used frozen berries, spinach, and banana/strawberry juice, along with a measure of Green powder for some extra nutrients. I poured it into a To-Go thermos and off to work I went!

I have to pick up some strawberries from the grocery store after work today - they're on sale and I need them for my smoothies! I only have one more bag of frozen berries and a container of frozen raspberries - not enough! LOL.

For lunch yesterday I had a salad with beef and cheese in it - whoops. I also had some raw veggies on the side. I munched on dried mango snacks in the afternoon then when I got home made myself a chicken burger (with lettuce and feta cheese) and homemade potato fries. I had some broccoli that I steamed yesterday but I didn't eat it - I should have but I just wasn't feeling the broccoli yesterday.

Today I brought lunch with me - leftover chicken burger and fries, and I will snack on dried mango again. Not sure what dinner will be yet - I know it will include the steamed broccoli though ;) and maybe a whole boatload some feta cheese.

It might be my turn to host the after-party after the ballgame tonight, so I made sure to have some extra beef patties ready to cook up if anyone is hungry. I also have potato chips (for them) and a small veggie plate (for me). Know what else I have? Blueberry Vodka. Know what i'm gonna do with it? One word. Smoothies.

Not in the mood for broccoli- funny! Your exercise sounds great- I'm always impressed about a morning run. It takes me a while to wake up. Hmm- blueberry vodka smoothie- sounds good after a ballgame, or anytime.

I am feeling much better today, thank you all for the well wishes!

Yesterday for lunch I had a turkey wrap from the cafeteria and a slice of coffee cake. Just can't get enough coffee ;) After work I picked up a flatbread subway melt with baked BBQ chips because I didn't have time to make anything for dinner. It was a nice treat, but i'll be back to my regularly scheduled meals tonight. I say 'tonight' because i'm not sure what i'm having for lunch today!

I had an evening meeting last night so that was fun... not. But we got through it and that's the important part. I just have to say that Red Tape is so very long and arduous.

I didn't do much after the meeting because it was already pretty late to go for a walk or be outside, so I played with Dog for a bit and then headed to bed. I didn't drink enough water yesterday and I can feel it in my muscles today - they hurt! I think I will do my ab routine and foam roll tonight seeing as it's raining again here today :( and maybe a little stretching to wind down for the night.

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

hollybelle on 05/31/2011:
Glad you feel better. I'm not surprised "A" is still trying....you are very good "catch" and I'm sure he recognizes it! Ouch - I hurt thinking about the foam roller - but it does help. :o)
