July 5th, 2012

Just finished another weight training work out, my arms are feeling rubbery :-)  I did okay yesterday for food I find that I don't get enough veggies in, that's why I do the shake;  its full of stuff I miss out on.   It's not like I am eating bad stuff it just they day is busy mostly with work and I don't eat enough.  I get home at 8pm from my late shift so no eating at that point.   At least with the 2 shakes I get more nutrition in.  But I like the days where I eat meals better. 

Well just want to check in...I am trying to stay current on my blogging also.

Happy 4th of July to all my friends across the boarder!  Hope you are enjoying yourselves BCF style.

Yesterday I did 50 minutes of exercise, very beginners level but I put the time in and felt my muscle say "What's going ON??"  I have enough videos and tools at home to do it so the only that was stopping me was pain and lack of energy.   Since my energy is also improving 20lbs less to carry around with me :-)  the time was right to step it up from my walking only.

Also I was talking to a trainer and he said if your muscles aren't hurting afterwards you didn't work them enough.   A little extreme I thought but I get what he is saying, and yes mine muscles hurt in a good way and the hurt is not in my hip! Yeah!  I am very careful and protective of cause myself pain so I make sure the pain is only muscle pain or strain.  My other stumbling block is that I am not very good in groups;  because I don't listen to my body and I get caught up in the group, keeping in pace with them...which I then cause myself injury.  So home gym for me :-)

I am back to 2 shakes a day with snacks and one meal....it works for my schedule I find somedays I only have time for one meal.   The days I have more time I make more BCF meals which seems to work for me.

Well off to work for me....everyone else Have Fun and enjoy the fireworks!

Hi Everyone,

I have been out of sorts lately and just shut down,  Boy have I felt the disconnect happening;  I get that way when I get overwhelmed.  Just needed to go quiet to work it out.  I think it helped because I feeling refreshed and ready to get back in saddle....the horse may have kicked me off but I am wiping the dust off my pants and ready to get back on.
It has been a real struggle for me, my weight is doing it real slow and easy.  So I have to reset and rewind and hit from another angle just to keep the slow results.  But now my hip is finally letting move more.  For the first time since last November I am able to walk down the stairs normally (it's a long story...just trust me this is a great thing!)  So I should be able to incorporate more activity which I believe for me is the key to increasing my metabolism and healing the years of damage I have done.   Walking (hiking) and resistance training will play a big role for me.   Between my injury and my lack of energy it has been difficult to add these things in so am looking forward to this and I have my Advil ready!  My muscles are going to be in shock :-)  but slow and easy I don't want to re-injure myself.   I am a bit of klutz when it comes to exercise.

Happy "Canada Day" & "Fourth of July" to all
