No great updates

It's been a couple of weeks and life is about the same. Ron had surgery last week. The foot is - well, it is what it is. I'm taking him back to the doctor tomorrow to have it re-checked because I don't like how it looks.

I've done a great job of self-sabotage. I haven't followed my own diet plan, haven't done what I set out to do, and haven't lost any weight. But, I did get to the YMCA four days in a row week before last. Last week, I made it Monday and Tuesday. This week - I'm not sure.

I had someone give me an older recumbent exercise bike for Ron (it's a Kathy Ireland brand). It's not great, but it is functional. I used it a bit last night. The resistance is tough, no matter how much I loosen it, so it may need to have some WD-40 applied.

I'm lowering my expectations of myself for the next few weeks. I need to relax and de-stress over the fact that Amy is getting married on an exotic beach in two months. I need to just not worry today or tomorrow about how I'm going to look in eight weeks. I just need to do what I need to do.

God, help me! I still need to get my passport!

Exercise routine

Started going to the YMCA last week and only made it a couple of days. Not a great start, but at least it's a start.

Yesterday, Amy and I went and did a few laps around the gym and then headed over to the 30 minute circuit training. I think that is going to be my goal. It's right next door to where I work so I can go right after. It takes 45 minutes to do the warm up and circuit training. Then, I can cool down for a few minutes, get my stuff and head home.

I'd like to add in some time for the hot tub and maybe the swimming pool but I don't think I really have time for that right now and still get home at a reasonable time to fix Ron dinner.

I haven't weighed in a few days. I need a battery for my scales.

Hit the Y yesterday

walked around the track for 10 minutes and then hit the treadmill for 10 minutes. then, i did the "express workout," which lasts 30 minutes. i was very sore today.

i would have worked out today, but we're having a garage sale on saturday and i worked out in the garage last night AND tonight getting stuff ready for saturday. lots of work. lots of work.

i took the battery out of my scales to put it in the radio for ron. so, i have to get a new battery before i can tell what my weight it.

grocery store

i hate going to the grocery store. it is so expensive to eat foods that are healthy. but, we now have some things in the house that ron can get to and eat. now, if he just will.

i'm not doing too well in the "healthy eating and exercise" arena. went to the Y yesterday after work and realized i didn't have a lock for the locker. couldn't leave my purse in the car because of theft there, so i ended up leaving. was going to go today, but had to pick up isaiah and go to the grocery store. so, tomorrow it is and i already have my lock in my bag. i am ready to go.

breakfast today was a meal replacement shake, as was lunch. supper was a hamburger from mcdonalds because i didn't get anything eaten before i left for the store. tonight, i've had a snack size ice cream cup (blue bell 170 calories - and very good; worth every calorie!). i just ate a piece of bread with blackberry jam (hungry and didn't want to have a low blood sugar over night).

tomorrow we shall see what the day brings.

holiday weekend

got on the scales after the holiday weekend and they didn't change - up or down - for the weekend. that was good.

i'm sick. i'm also grazing and eating everything i can get my hands on. nothing sounds good and nothing seems to satisfy. so, i am really trying to be conscious of what i have around here to snack on. right now, we don't have much and i really need to go to the store.
