Well despite what you might have thought I did not drop off the face of the earth and I did not lose all of my weight that I needed, so I’m back at it again. So I’ve gone back to Primal Blueprint eating and I’ve started doing the exercise plan for a 14 day plan. I figure why not give it a try. It has you exercising 6 days out of the week and alternating exercises and also walking/bicycling/jogging for 30 minutes each day. It was comprised by a LA personal trainer and I figured why not.
So I started on Sunday because it was the first day of the week for me, meaning that Saturday would be my relax day for exercise and a type of relaxed eating. I was doing great until this morning when things got kind of messed up time schedule wise. I had to get up earlier than usual and take my mother to her doctor’s appointment and when I got home it started raining so the walk/bicycling was not going to happen. So by the time I got back and got things going, it was time for me to get ready for work. So I think I will go home and do a 7 minute workout which is straining enough on my muscles.
One thing I realized is that I’m not getting enough vegetables in my meals so I’ve been checking into protein shakes that have vegetables in it and found a couple of them. Oh and I also have been struggling with trying to remember to eat. I get caught up with things and tend to forget about eating so it looks as if I might have to start relying on protein shakes with veggies. Besides that way I know that I will start getting enough vegetables. Did I say that enough, I need more vegetables in my diet.
One thing I’m trying to do is to keep from stepping on the scale. I weighed myself on Sunday only it was after I had been walking but I figured what I would weigh if I hadn’t gone walking. So the big thing for me will be not to weigh myself until Saturday, the start of day 7 and then I will weigh myself on day 8 to see if I went overboard on my day off from exercising and from relaxed eating.
So I’m back from my time in Vancouver, I spent 11 days there and besides having a big hotel bill, I had eaten so much and drank plenty but not too much. I always had breakfast except for one day and I was eating both lunch and dinner. As for sleep well I usually got 5-6 hours of sleep which was pretty good. We walked at least 3-4 miles every day so that is why I didn’t gain 5-10 pounds, we did quite a bit of walking. I also escaped the hot temperatures by being up there. But now that I’ve returned I took a look in the mirror and was shocked at what I saw.
I’m going to work with one of my friends who has gotten very good at dropping weight and see if I can do some of her tactics to help my lose some of my weight. Wow a break in the weather so I guess I had better go walking.
Talk with ya soon. Thanks for hanging in there with me.
