It looked like it could be 2-3 lb. on the analog, sos I'm not going near the Wii today.
Every Monday except one I've been up on Mondays. I could copy and paste everything from last week's Monday post here...no sleep, up and weighing too early, no exercise during the weekend...and then add that we ate at Lola's on the Lake for lunch.
That wasn't the plan. The plan was to go to Lake Street Cafe where I enjoy a particular salad, but they were closed. Well, actually, the first selection was The Forest House near where we were going to go hiking, but when we called to find out about a lunch menu the phone was disconnected.
Essentially, nothing went the way it was supposed to all day.
In any case, by the time we settled on Lola's, I was famished and a salad just wasn't going to do. I picked a panini. I drank water. None of us had desert. I gave my chips to my husband and daughter.
Because we ate lunch much later than we planned, we did not eat dinner. Thus, that one sandwich is the root cause of this unfortunate gain.
Hopefully I'll be home by 2 or 3 pm and can get both a nap and then treadmill time in. According to the weekly schedule as it stands now, I should have tomorrow and Wednesday to write, so I can work in a workout both days. Thursday I have one appointment that, of course, is going to have me up at 5:30 am again, but hopefully I can get right home and also get a workout fit into that day. I hope to get the book revisions finished as well. Once those changes get paste my editor and she makes her own suggestions, I'll make those changes and format. I am getting near the finish line!
Now...just to get this weight down where I want it and keep it down!
DH is up .9 and has suggested that Wii is playing an April Fool's joke, since neither of us should be up.
I did not log food yesterday. It was within the realm of normal. There has got to be a point at which I can stop logging every damn thing. I mean, I was still doing some sort of math in my head, and the carb count was still minimal, but I didn't record it all in my
We did yoga, but only about a 1/2 hour's worth. Yeah. There is not reason either of us should be up.
The sun is just now coming out, so hopefully it will warm up enough to get outside.
Another night with too little sleep!
Weigh-in was at 5:30 am again. That is just too early.
Yesterday was the same, and I was a zombie all day. I could not function. I was scatterbrained at work, and when I came home, I ate a late lunch (I think it was like 2:30...but it's a fog) and crashed. I slept for maybe an hour, but never did feel right.
We went for a walk, but it was damn cold and very windy, so only walked a mile and a half.
Then we came home and had a late dinner. I know it was after 7...perhaps closer to 7:30.
I had 1/2 apple in the morning, 1 cup of tuna and 2 pieces of string cheese for lunch. For dinner I had two 4" quinoa patties and maybe a cup of green beans, both with abundant amounts of olive oil.
I have no idea how I'm going to get through the day. I have no idea how DH functions on this amount of sleep every day.
It's raining today and will all day, so who knows what I will get for exercise.
Not happy about this and don't care who knows.
I ate about 1500 calories yesterday. I walked EIGHT AND A HALF MILES. All of that was at a pace that made me sweat. 5.5 of it in the morning, 3 in the evening. I burned over 1000 calories according to my app. There should be NO reason for a gain, and EVERY reason for significant loss.
Once again, thcalories in, calories out? My ass!
See, if I just had a life where every day I could devote 2 or 3 hours to exercise, I'd be able to keep my weight stable and possibly even reduce!
I didn't even eat dinner last night...exactly. I exercised lated (treadmill for 2 hours) and by the time it was over it was dinner time, but I wasn't hungry. When I was hungry it was too late to eat dinner, so I had a beef stick and a Baby Bel. I guess that could be considered dinner. All total, perhaps 1000 calories for the day.
I have 3 days in which I can exercise the minimum 2 hours per day. I'm working from home most of the week. There are no plans to eat, drink or be merry. It's time to play catch up and hopefully break some new ground before my birthday dinner in a few weeks. I'd really like to get down one more size so I can fit into this dress I bought last year.
It's cold outside. It's almost as if winter is trying to reclaim some ground here.
Up at 5:30 a.m today for an appointment on my calendar that I'm pretty sure doesn't actually exist, but I have no way to check, so...I'm up. I was up anyway. I was up all damn night.
We rode 14.5 miles yesterday. Our first ride of the year was 4 miles. My body was tapped out by the time we got home. There was no coasting on this ride. It was 2 hours of constant peddling. Before we left neither of us had eaten much. For me, that was less than a cup of my faux potato salad (my moms recipe with cauliflower instead of potatoes), perhaps an ounce of raw milk cheddar and a piece of no-sugar, no-flour banana bread. So, we took a couple of beef sticks to eat right before the ride, and some pistachios for after.
When we got back, we were both just spent and needed to eat right away. I had <cup of brussels sprouts, 100g grass fed burger and another piece of banana bread. We stayed up late waiting for our daughter to get home and had a couple of drinks, which for me was wine. All total though, my calorie counting app said I still had hundreds of calories in my 'bank.'
My legs ached all night and I experienced hours of night sweats that kept me up alternating between the blazing power surges that made me sweat and the freezing that resulted from being soaked. The temperature outside plummeted last night and we didn't turn the heat back on inside, so it was freezing in here.
Somehow I need to function today.
DH was up 3.5 lb. when he weighed in! I got on the upstairs analog and it looked like a 2 lb. gain up here. I have cramps this morning too. I didn't even bother going downstairs to weigh on the Wii. There is no conceivable way I could have actually gained weight after yesterday, so I don't care what registers on the scale. Perhaps tomorrow after sleep and a Epsom salt soak I hope to have tonight the scale will be nicer to me. I would also love to fit in a nice yoga today if I can find the energy. I need the stretch. If not, tomorrow.
Meh. On with my day.
I expected that or worse.
We had a fun night, with food, friends and drink. I tried to stick to what I know works for me. My party selections were my own mock potato salad, cheese (no crackers) my own sugar-free, gluten-free banana bread, cantaloupe. Before anyone got here I had a beef stick and some cheese.
Somewhere into the third class of wine I decided the crumbs in the bottom of the corn chip bowl looked good. I'd estimate I ate the equivalent of maybe 3-4 full sized chips.
What I did do a little different is that 3 different times, I took the PGx, 2 each time. That is two more than I'd been taking the last couple of days. The suggested does tops out at 4 before EACH MEAL. And what I can say is that while I did take a taste of this or that (like with the chips) I was so full, I didn't want to continue eating anything in any great amount. So it is working in that regard. In fact, that cheese I had earlier with the beef stick...I poured some curds out onto a paper towel to let them come to room temperature before eating. By the time I got to them, the PGx must have expanded, because I ate a few curds and then just didn't want the rest. I gave them to my husband.
That does make me wonder if any of that gain is all that fiber still making it's way through. I drank at least 100 oz. of water over the course of the night that would have been absorbed by the fiber. And I weighed at 9 am. Sometimes that makes a difference. So does not sleeping well, most of the time. I flipped and flopped a lot last night, though I didn't get up.
Time will tell. I'm thinking the PGx is a good thing.
Today DH has said will be a 'nice day.' I'm not sure how nice, but it may include some outdoor activity. Even if this gain is 'real' I should be able to get it off before the week is out. 21 days before my birthday, which I also already know will need recovery time as far as weight goes.
Once again, I am perplexed. I got no exercise yesterday with the rain and the busy. I worked, I went shopping, I made dinner. That was the extent of my day.
I ate around 1500-1600 calories. I had two classes of wine.
Today might be similar as we are having a little get together. I hope to have time to yoga, but it's still raining so no outside walking. We'll see about treadmill.
The only thing that has changed is the addition of the PGx. Could I be s
I was actually sort of surprised by this.
I did move all day yesterday. Once I started my spring cleaning, I didn't stop until I was just spent, leaving the mopping of two areas, the super vacuuming from top to bottom, and a couple of closets. Otherwise, every window in the house, bathroom and kitchen floors scrubbed twice on hands and knees, winter clothes packed, every surface from ceiling to floor dusted in 60% of the house. Thus, there were a lot of stairs traversed and much 'up and down' on the step stool and from the floor. I barely stopped to eat some almonds and 1/2 pear and then had my BLT salad for dinner. I took the PGx I just got before both meals.
I guess so far I can say it is as advertised where fiber is concerned. I'm not sure how I would gauge the blood sugar stabilization as I do not check blood sugar levels. I'll be able to report on weather it aids in weight loss, though.
Last night DH commented that we should go for our evening walk as we had both either been losing (him) or holding steady/losing (me) for the last few days and if it works, don't mess with the routine. However, my feet were just aching and I didn't have it in me. I didn't' do yoga either. I never took a break. It seems to be ok though, at least for me. I haven't talked to him yet today to see what the scale told him. Tonight we won't be able to walk as it's raining and the forecast says this will continue through tomorrow. Maybe I can convince him to do the more difficult yoga with me tonight. If not I may just have to do treadmill. Maybe both. We also just got the new Wii Dance 3, which I tried the other day. It might be fun to dan
I struggled with my weight for over 20 years. I tried everything to lose weight. Yes, I did 'eat less, move more' repeatedly, convinced that doing the same thing over and over would someone yield different results. Desperate, having diligently done all the 'right' things and being told by several doctors that there was nothing wrong with me except that I wasn't trying hard enough, in 2009 I tried what seemed crazy: Dr. Simeons Hcg protocol. I lost 85 lb.
