legcramps - Thursday Apr 14, 2011

Weight: 164.0

I need to figure out a way to not be soooooo tyyyyrrrrred at the end of the workday.  Yesterday I got home from work and just wanted to sleep.  I struggled to make dinner for myself, struggled to clean up after myself.  It was all a gigantic struggle so I made an executive decision to hit the pillows around 9pm.  I just couldn't keep my eyes open any longer.  So up to bed I went, snuggled in under the covers and... couldn't sleep.  ARGH.  I guess by that time, my body had gotten a second wind.  I did finally manage to fall asleep, and got a good night's rest.

Woke up at 6:30am this morning.  Slithered out of bed and argued with Dog for a few minutes about her getting under my feet and tripping me up all the time.  I should set up a video cam in my house so that you can see how much I talk to Dog.  All the time.  Got dressed to do the Shred DVD when I realized that I was going to be walking to work today.  So instead of doing the Shred DVD and wearing myself out before I even started walking, I decided to do a quick workout I found on You Tube, and then a longer ab routine.  Whew, that You Tube workout was not easy - and it only took me 9 minutes!  If I remember, i'll post it on the FB page.

The walk to work this morning was unreasonably cold and windy.  Not fair.  April 14th, Mother Nature.  April 14th.  The water levels seem to be alright so far where I live, the basement is still dry and the streets aren't holding much water.  I don't really know where it's going, so that concerns me a bit.  There's still a level of water in the ground as well - can't wait until that starts to melt too.

I am drinking coffee in order to keep myself warm because otherwise this might be a long day of sitting at my desk shivering uncontrollably.

I would have taken a picture of my breakfast this morning, but it's all gone.  That was a record-breaking cereal eating finish time.  Thank goodness it's grocery day today after work, because I have resorted to adding far more bran in my cereal than I prefer.  We can all imagine how that might be affecting my days.

I brought the last of my cod and rice concoction for lunch today.  I dunno what dinner will be, maybe a mutt sandwich to use up the rest of the food in the fridge.  I have to clean out the fridge to make room for the fresh stuff!  An orange and a granola bar for snacks, and that rounds out my day!  Happy Thursday All!  Today is my Friday!

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

Awesome job - working out BEFROE work! That takes ALOT of committment & dedication (& timing), so cudos to you!

Umpqua on 04/14/2011:
Way to get an early workout in! Oh and the bikini wax - NOT FUN ;P Have a good one!

starfish on 04/14/2011:
I hope you have a great day :-)

moogy on 04/14/2011:
I think that 9pm is a perfectly reasonable time to go to bed. It is the usual time I am asleep by. If the dog needs company he can just dream. I agree with you about Mother Nature, it should be warmer where you are by now. Send a letter, I will try and find it and post the address!!!!! Keep warm and have a great day despite the uncomfortableness:)

V on 04/14/2011:
You would be amazed at the extra boost of energy that an AM sweatty cardio will give ya!! Woohoo! In RYC indeed the # after each class is the eta of each Turbo :) pictures will come in 3 weeks after turbo prep graduation!!! So you will just have to WAIT :P LOL love ya :)

Enjoy your time off--good job on the shred!

legcramps - Wednesday Apr 13, 2011

Weight: 164.0

That's what I did yesterday morning before work. I SHREDDED! I ACTUALLY SHREDDED!

And, needless to say, it kicked my butt.

But i'm glad I did it; once I got home from work it was chaos trying to get Dog fed and emptied, check the water levels in the basement, send off some e-mails, then walk to a nearby restaurant to meet friends for... ok, guess... ok fine I won't make you wait...


I tried out the Dragon Roll (california roll with BBQ eel). oh yum. new fav! I also had kappa roll, inagi roll and dynamite roll. That's a lotta rolls, but I would guess no more than 500 calories altogether. And for dessert a deep fried ice cream scoop. I know, I know. See the drool running down my face? It was a treat that I usually get for dessert when I eat sushi. I had to, it's tradition :)

Then I had an evening meeting that lasted until 9pm. By the time I got back home, I was ready for bed. This morning I woke up around 6:30am, and managed to shove myself out of bed. I debated whether to SHRED again or do something else. Without really making a decision (my mind just does not work that early in the morning), I started putting on my outdoor workout clothes, so I decided I might as well go for a jog. I knew it wouldn't be a long one because I was already falling behind schedule and I wasn't even out the door yet. Just making the decision to run took me 15 minutes. I did some dynamic stretching to warm up, then headed out for a quick 1.25 mile run. It was lovely, but I need to stretch. My left calf muscles huuuurrrrrt.

Update*: I also did my normal ab routine, forgot to mention.

And now to face another workday. Only two more and then i'm off on vacation for a week!

Pitter patter.

Update *: Also forgot to mention that the south part of my province is expecting extremely high levels of flooding. Already some highways are closed due to flooding.

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

KathyBlue on 04/13/2011:
lol, new fav :) Don't worry about traditions, they won't ruin your average days :). An ocassional treat is OK :)

loveray on 04/13/2011:
how was shred? i have heard so much about it and always wanted to try it...i LOVE sushi!

Umpqua on 04/13/2011:
I'm drooling over your dinner. Great job with the shred!

starfish on 04/13/2011:
I looooove sushi!! Keep up the great work!

sweetpea1977 on 04/13/2011:
Good job with Shred!!! Jillian knows how to kick butt, doesnt she? I'll be adding her to my routine next week in the early AM. :)

Is your province being affected by the same floods that North Dakota is dealing with? I saw footage of it on Good Morning America and YIKES!! Hope everyone makes it out safely there!

hopingforhealth on 04/13/2011:
Awesome day for working out! I bet you worked off that ice cream, after all sometimes a tradition is a tradition. :)

Stay safe in that flooding!

moogy on 04/13/2011:
Well, if it is a tradition it must be maintained!!!!! Sounds like any ice cream calories got totally shredded, I think you may be turning into another V here. You go girl!!!

V on 04/13/2011:
Roarrrrrr!!! LOL I bet you CRUSHED IT!!! WOOOHOO!! I am sooo proud of you!!!

Maria7 on 04/13/2011:
Sounds like you're getting in some good workouts! :-D

Yesterday was not a good day, eating-wise. I sort of binged. I hope it's over with now. 

I believe it all comes down to emotional stress. I had a lot of running around to do after work yesterday and I forgot to do a couple of things which always pisses me off (I swear I show signs of early dementia); snow is melting and every time my sump pumps go off my heart beats double time because of the memory of last summer and spending hours in the basement sucking up water; I have to read through and sign some papers as an executrix and it's majorly giving me a headache because I don't understand any of it; i'm paranoid about my budget each and every day (I know that is probably what a lot of us face); I desperately need the wage increase we're lobbying for at work, but I don't know if i'll get it; blah... Come Together, Right Now... Over Me. And that's how it happened. I thought about all this, and it got to me. My head does really crazy things to get me going in the wrong direction.

There's some wicked snow mold going on over here. I should take a picture of it and show y'all. It's disgusting. Looks like there are cobwebs covering every area of lawn out here. I need to check up on Mom, as she has some pretty strong allergies and I hope she's not having trouble with all this mold.

See all that at the bottom of the picture? Snow Mold.

As you've probably deduced, the snow is melting at a much faster rate now. I've been teasing myself with visions of bbq's on the back deck, and beer. Yes... beer. I think alcohol is the only thing I actually managed to give up during lent. And only two more weeks until Easter. Coming back from that tangent. I am going to attempt to work some burgers into my budget for the next two weeks so that I can have a cook up at some point. Oh, it's such an exciting thought!!!

You'll never guess what I did when I woke up this morning. But i'll give you three guesses. Go ahead. Guess.

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

KathyBlue on 04/12/2011:
I think the best thing is to forget about it and live one day at a time. I'm trying to analyse myself during the binges because I recognize the behaviour... and the frightening aspects are: my binges consist of eating healthy foods but in big quantities... I don't crave a full bowl of ice cream, or a slice of chocolate cake nor hamburgers. I eat a slice of bread and I go back to get more and more. And I know it's wrong but I say: "nevermind, tomorrow will do better". Which is WRONG... period. I really need to stop this. The scale is going to the right direction but until when?! :( I also need to do something on financial level... and my colleagues are trying my nerves, too... GRRR... really, I should give myself an emotional break, I feel ditched and stuck. :(

Umpqua on 04/12/2011:
Hey, at least you stuck to that one resolution! I have trouble with emotional stress eating too, that got me into trouble over the weekend. BBQ burgers sound great. Oh and sorry if your Aunt F is in town, hopefully it's a short visit :P

V on 04/12/2011:
Okay I think you worked out and had a beer :) LOl Naww I am thinking you worked out and just that :) I am anxiously awaiting your response ;)

hollybelle on 04/12/2011:
Thank you for your comment. Very nice to have support. I hope we can resolve things, too.

biscottibody59 on 04/12/2011:
Uh, on the executrix--if you haven't signed it yet and are still having a time understanding it, please think about seeing an attorney. Just my 2cents:-)

I have no clue--treadmill walking/running?

Have a great afternoon/evening!

moogy on 04/12/2011:
I have never heard of snow mould before. Being an executrix is a big job and can be tricky, I am with biscotti, get some legal advice before you agree to become one or sign anything. I can see that the thought of warm days and sitting outside with a cold beer are the only things keeping you going!! Hang in there. I am going for the treadmill as well or did you go out running?????

biscottibody59 on 04/12/2011:

2nd guess is harvesting snow mold--as it must be a delicacy??

hopingforhealth on 04/12/2011:
It's so hard to be good when you are stressed out, I totally understand. Tomorrow is a new day and you can try again.

I will keep my fingers crossed for the wage increase! My office has had some long pay freezes in this economy and it's definitely stressful.

chidogs on 04/12/2011:
Ack, snow mold looks nasty! I have never heard of that before. I know all about stress eating. Just came of a long binge myself. I am easing back into better foods and quantities now. I hope. Legal stuff is major confusing. Get help if you can before you sign anything! Good luck.

h82bfat on 04/13/2011:
I'm an emotional/boredom eater too. I'm not quite sure what to do about that, I mean - a person can only stay but sooo busy & well the emotional part, who knows... So, you're not alone there! I've been trying lately to focuss on what I do have & what I HAVE accomplished for the day, rather than what I wished were different. All I can say about that is, some days it works...! Eye on the prize my friend - eye on the prize!

One more week of work and then i'm off for a few days of holidays! The countdown is on!

Yesterday I did laundry and cleaned out the garage. Just need to take in some recycling and the garage is ready for... whatever it needs to be ready for. I also kept picking at the containers upstairs in the spare room and finally got that all straightened out too. Now to pick and choose which containers can go into the basement for storage.

I cooked up the rest of the cod I had sitting in the freezer. I decided to make a stir-fry with brown rice, tomatoes, carrots, onions and the leftover cod. Yum! I separated out enough for four meals this week, but it's so yummy I might accidentally over-eat. I have no picture, but it even looks yummy. That's pretty dangerous in my opinion ;)

I didn't do any formal exercising yesterday, so i'm hoping to get something in today after work. I'm thinking about a run/walk with Dog.

My breakfast this morning didn't quite work out so well; I brought cereal to work with me, and mixed frozen berries and almond milk together to mix into the cereal. The frozen berries crystallized the almond milk and it's sort of a big hot mess of crunchy coldness. Not sure i'm a fan. Ah well, the turkey sandwich for lunch will more than make up for it.

That's it, that's all I have to say today.

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

KathyBlue on 04/11/2011:
Woohoo, holidays! :)) I like the idea of a big hot mess of crunchy coldness, hehehe... :)

moogy on 04/11/2011:
It sounds like you did plenty of physical stuff yesterday. It is nice to have everything tidy and where it belongs. Good for you!!

One more helping of veggie lasagna and it's finally done!

I was up early this morning, so I got dressed up and took Dog for a walk. We did some running segments too, in total just over 2 miles. When we got back to the house, I took a quick shower and had some cereal and a banana for breakfast.

From there I started cleaning and doing some filing. I cleared out another container that I had still not unpacked. Only two more to go! One really, since the other one is mostly holding a bunch of sheet music. Anyways, i'm feeling super-accomplished.

For lunch I had a turkey sandwich (boo to the no bread rule... why did I even bother?!) and lotsa water. And, since it is the weekend and I have no major plans, I took a nap :) It was lovely. When I woke up, I snagged a granola bar and headed out for my weekend luxury - a mocha. That was also lovely.

I'm doing laundry now (just about finished), and ate up some lasagna for dinner. Carrots and onions are sitting on the stove, cooking away. I'll probably end up putting them away for tomorrow.

I did a quick inventory of the groceries in the house and it looks like i'll get through until Friday which is awesome news. I was worried I was gonna have to look for sneaky ways to cover a few meals (aka grandma's for dinner and/or shopping in mom's freezer). I might even be able to budget a meal out. Apparently i'm pretty paranoid about my spending habits! Ah well, it's good to be cheap sometimes ;)

I feel like it's been a great day, and I hope that tomorrow will be much of the same - sure would like to get outside and start throwing the ball around. It's never too early for ball season!

Have a Great Weekend!!!

Nice picture--hope your weekend continues to go well! I'd like a mocha--haven't treated myself in awhile:-)

nemogirl on 04/10/2011:
That's a really cute puppy! Wow. My best friend is super cheap, and she has saved so much money over the years being that way, and she's really happy. SO, I say good for you!

It's FWIDAY!!!

Yesterday I got a lot accomplished out of my To-Do List. Paid two bills, scooped poop, finished the taxes, prepped for the ball meeting and an upcoming dog park meeting. I was snoring by 10pm.

I still didn't want to get up this morning, but eventually I did and then had to rush a bit to get ready for work because I planned to walk to work so I needed an extra half an hour. The walk was nice; slightly cool but I dressed appropriately and it didn't bother me too much. Now i'm pigging out on a breakfast of cereals, strawberries and a banana with almond milk. Yummers! And, of course, coffee.

I had a slight headache when I left work yesterday. Eventually I decided to take an advil, and that seemed to help a bit, but I woke up this morning feeling that headache again. I've already taken an advil so am just waiting for it to kick in. Also, something i've been noticing when i've taken advil: stomach aches! I seem to become extremely nauseus after I take an advil. This morning I took it with water and nothing else. Do I need to eat something with it? Why do you think it's making me sick? Or am I just maybe getting sick and it's not about the advil? Oh, so many questions, so few answers.

It's going to be a pretty quiet weekend, which is great because I think i'm going to need to rest. Maybe I should get my thyroid checked. Maybe i'm just lazy.

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

KathyBlue on 04/08/2011:
yeah, those damn' pills cause stomach ache... Try an other brand, though they all quite the same. I like Panadol extra, and here in Portugal I use Trifene. I don't know if it makes sense to talk about these, as we're from different countries AND continents, but Advil exists here so, maybe it does make sense :)

Have a nice weekend, and I love the pic! :)

Umpqua on 04/08/2011:
The advil could definitely be messing with your tummy, try taking it with a little food or milk to coat? I am doing full on backyard cleanup/poop scooping this afternoon, AGH. Have a good one!

I have to say, you girls have been all kinds of supportive to me. I really appreciate that you still have my back :) I think I would have given up by now if I didn't have all of you cheering me on.

Yesterday Dog and I went for a walk. No running, but the walk was very enjoyable and we traipsed around town showing off our awesome walking form. Dog needed another bath when we got home. She's very helpful when it comes to bath time. She stayed outside until I started the water, then loped gingerly into the house and straight to the tub. Once there, she waited patiently while I arranged her towels, tail wagging away. She stood so quietly in the water, and jumped out once I gave her the "ok". What an awesome Dog! She got an extra treat for the A+ work!

I am still sleepy and tired most of the time, and a little bit slower than usual, but i'm getting through it alright so far. I think I will take today off from exercise so that I can tackle some things on the To-Do list. Like picking up more dog poo, prepping for an upcoming ball meeting, getting further along on finishing up my taxes, and checking out the coupons I received in the mail yesterday. If I could get through that part of the list tonight, i'd be a very happy camper.

that is a very well behaved dog! Glad to hear you got some walking in! Thats definitely better than nothing!

sweetpea1977 on 04/07/2011:
Wow, your dog is awesome! She must have an awesome owner!

Anyway, we support you because you deserve it, even through the rough times. Plus, it helps that you're an awesome source of support for us too. :)

Picking up dog poop...fun! That used to be one of my weekly chores as a kid. We had a fenced in yard and three Dalmatians to clean up after once a week. Now thats a lot of crap, lol :)

liza36 on 04/07/2011:
What a nice doggie you have! I agree with Sweetpea - awesome owner!

Hackersdiet on 04/07/2011:
Great Dog! I love my dog too, but she isn't nearly as good as yours!

~Moody~ on 04/07/2011:
Wowee what a great dog!! I've never had a dog voluntarily come to the bathroom when the water was running..somehow they know when that water is running for THEM. LOL

Hope you find some energy~just a random thought, but have you had your thyroid checked? The reason I ask is I have hypothyroidism and before I was diagnosed, I was seriously dragging ass. A bone weary tired. So yeh, just wondering if this is something you've had checked...

Hope you have a great day, and get thru your to-do list this evening!

"You cannot grow and expand your capabilities to their limits without running the risk of failure."  Dean Karnazes

I realized something today. I am not where I was two months ago (believe it or not, this actually was a very surprising discovery). And I also realized that it will take a bit of work to get back there; I can't just snap my fingers and be a power calorie-burning machine again. I have to consider the fact that I can't workout at such high intensities. I am not there anymore; it's amazing how much you lose when you go from high activity to minimal activity. I've reached the realization (and acceptance) that I need to (in a sense) start over.

I cannot let myself believe it's okay if I miss another workout. They can no longer be at the same level of intensity, but such is life. I need to:  Leash Dog and go for walk/runs; Shred; Lift, tone, abs. Start there, and see where it takes me. Nice and easy. It was pretty muddy outside yesterday. Dog went from blonde to black in a heartbeat. I also came home splattered with it. But I went for a walk, and I even managed a few run segments.

And now we're at Today. According to my schedule, it's a "Run Day". A "Run Day" would be helpful, seeing as I signed up for another 5k run towards the end of May, but it will most certainly end up a "Walk/Run with Dog Day". This is okay. Because even through failure, there is success - which is to say, i'm still here aren't I?

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

getmebackto150 on 04/06/2011:
you ARE still here... and ANY workout is much better than none... I keep telling myself that as well... Have a good one!

Umpqua on 04/06/2011:
Yep, even a walk is better than no walk. Oh and you reminded me that I need to wash dog too, he's also blonde but is looking like a medium brown right now :P Have a good one!

I am getting pumped right now for my Turbo class and I am hoping you a feeling the incline of major ampage that I am feeling! Chant, bark, howl...Whatever you got to do to get a bit more motivated, try it! :) I am sure you will get back at it regardless of what level of fitness you are, okay??? Now go crush it!!

Your quote is so true. I also think that acceptance of our own infallibility is key it progress. Plus sometimes progress is slow and sometimes progress is just staying still for a while why we catch up with ourselves.:)

~Moody~ on 04/06/2011:
Love the quote~So true!

It's discouraging to feel like you are "starting over" in a sense with your endurance, but it does build up very quickly. I've done this time and time again...Start out slow..if you go balls to the walls you'll feel burnt out or discouraged because your body can't go at the intensity your mind says it can~But you WILL get back to the place you were before, and probably excel past that!! Hang in there..

I spent near to half an hour in the back yard yesterday picking up dog poo. I probably only got about a third of it picked up. More excitement for today I guess. It's joyful being a dog owner :)

I don't know what happened when I got home from work yesterday, but I blinked once and suddenly it was 10pm.

I don't really have much to say. I feel like i'm constantly telling you I failed, day after day, to get back to my routine. As you can probably imagine, having to admit this each day is beginning to wear on me. I slept 9 hours overnight, and still couldn't get myself up for a morning workout. During the evening I swear I could just sit in the dark and stare at a wall for hours. I guess i'm feeling overwhelmed with things again. I just feel really, super tired.

I'm gonna write an entry when I have something more better to say ;)

getmebackto150 on 04/05/2011:
so sorry you are feeling down.... I hear you when you say you are reporting you failed over and over again... I often feel the same way... But I try to think of it in that coming to DD is a success in and of itself... It tells me that even though I am failing to have a perfect lifestyle, I still recognize that I want to change and I am actively trying... Sending Hugs your way and I hope you feel better soon!

sweetpea1977 on 04/05/2011:
ITA with getmeback. At least you are recognizing that you want to change.

Im sure that the weather up there hasnt helped you find the motivation you seek. Sometimes the only thing that that works for me is forcing myself to exercise. I always feel better afterward!

Feel better soon!

nemogirl on 04/05/2011:
Maybe you need some rest and relaxation more than anything to get to you a place where you can refocus and start anew.

Umpqua on 04/05/2011:
Sorry to hear you are feeling down, this weather is really really tough and I've been struggling myself. Sunshine and warmer weather WILL arrive and I bet things will begin to look up. Oh and I have to do the dog poo cleanup too, I've been avoiding it and it's like dodging landmines out in my back yard ;P Feel better!

~Moody~ on 04/05/2011:
I understand the joys of being a dog owner, as I am the mom of 2..LOL

I can understand completely your mind set..I was there for a long time and am finally getting my head back in the game..You can do this too~I know you can

greengirl on 04/05/2011:
Been there, done that with the dog poo. I have two of them, one large one small but they can both poo for England !! Hope to hear you are feeling a bit brighter soon. It's not easy working and sticking to a routine :-(

V on 04/05/2011:
I am hoping you will find the girl who was so determined in bootcamp that you begged for more, it's in you, I know it...For me workouts are truly the one thing in my life that is non negotiable...So scheduling it at a reasonable time and if it is in the morning, you must force yourself up and et it done and the rest of the day you have all the time to do whatever it is that you want :) Have a good one, love ya!

So April showers bring May flowers, but what does April snow bring?

It brings grumpiness, that's what.

I had a great weekend, regardless of the snow we received on Friday night. A nice visit with Dad on Saturday, a visit with Mom and Grandma on Sunday and lots of cleaning and cooking of veggie lasagna for my dinners this week (and probably next week, judging by how much I made). I also managed to do some bargain shopping for groceries and saved a lot of money this weekend - YES!

I didn't want to get up this morning. I'm still struggling a bit with getting exercise in, although I feel like I did a lot in regards to cleaning the house and running errands, so i'm not going to beat myself up over it. I do want to try another early morning workout this week because I definitely need to push myself to increase my energy levels. Need more energy :)

My To-Do's are getting longer, so if I can fit in a workout or two this week i'll be happy because there are so many other things that need to be done. It's making me tired just thinking of it all ;) but i'm sure i'll get through it because I usually manage to. Two more full weeks of work, and then i've taken a week off around Easter to do some spring cleaning. I only hope that by then it will actually be spring!

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

Ugh, I hope your snow finishes up soon. I *think* we have switched to rain and bitter cold haha. Have a good one!

Hope you find a way to reconcile your todo's with your exercise. I hope the pace lets up for you!

Glad you enjoyed your family visits!

Great job on the grocery savings. :)

I know what you mean about your to-do list keeping you from getting real exercise. Its been really difficult for me to fit in workouts when my two sons are on different schedules. Hopefully, those wrinkles will get ironed out soon!
