Day 90

Tuesday, March 31, 2015

emoticon Still not 100%, but I'm better than I was. My sinus still feels all clogged up, so I may pick up a decongestant. I'm going to try to get to working out tomorrow, don't know if I can wake up that early after waking up so late these last few days. Still having to sleep propped up or I can't sleep at all.

emoticon Another 50 days has almost passed with no results here. I know why. I have been eating chocolate and I've been sick and not working out. I've not been eating great. You'd think I'd have learned my lesson by now, but no, I give in to my sweet craving, or eat too much food. I'm going to come up with a better game plan for the next 50 days and try to lose at least 5 pounds. That is not much, but it is a start at least.

emoticon I was really enjoying my work out routine, it was kicking my tail, but in a good way. I worked out to my DVD by Ellen Barrett for 15 minutes (completeing a warm up, and 1 and a 1/2 routines), then did step aerobics for 20 minutes (giving my calves time to cool down), then finish up with the next 5 minutes of the DVD (finishing the other 1/2 of the routine). I really think if I'd not gotten sick it would have been showing good results!

emoticon As far as eating goes, I need to come up with a sweet that I can eat when I get a sweet craving that won't kill my diet. It used to be dates, I guess I could use that or prunes, both are sweet. But neither will do when I'm craving a pastry. I guess I need to pick up some more jolly ranchers, those seem to work. But also are hard to find! I bet Walmart would have them, but I don't go there very much at all any more. I am going to go back to having my shake after I get done working out, that seemed to work really well. I need to start eating salads for lunch, maybe with a boiled egg or small chicken breast for protein.

emoticon Don't know how I'm going to handle tomorrow. It's the 'Spring Fling' at church and flashlight egg hunt. But DH has re-injured his back and won't be able to help out, and both kids egg hunts are going to be in different areas. I guess I'll have to let my 8 year old go off by herself and meet back up with us when she is done, but I don't like that idea. Maybe I can find one of my oldest's friends for her to go with while I go with her younger sister and we can meet up afterwards. I just remember that it was pure chaos last year. *sigh* I hope DH's back feels better by tomorrow!

emoticon My psychiatrist took me off of one medication, it was totally my idea, I don't want to be on this many meds. But apparently this med was important to my moods. According to DH I've been steadily getting worse since I was taken off of it. And I'll admit it I'm not doing so well at all. But I'll be going in to see the doc tomorrow and we'll get it figured out. Blah. I hate messing with my meds, but that was a huge pill and they changed it to this brand that has a sandpaper texture so I was literally choking on it and just couldn't stand the thought of taking it any more. Maybe I can get him to give me a smaller dose size so I can get it down without choking.

Well, I'm off to start school.

    Sure hope you feel better soon! And that your dh can go to the egg hunt. =) Praying you and your dr have wisdom abt your meds. As for your sweet tooth..I have an awful one. too. Takes some mighty willpower that some days I just don't have. I think choosing a fruit is a good way to go. And as always pray for His help! emoticon

    From what I learned on SP, you can't substitute a sweet for a sweet. You just need to eliminate your craving for sugar. It takes a few days but you can do it. Also, a walk around the block might be beneficial for you too. It is keeping the body moving...
