I hope you all have had a BLESSED and exciting weekend. I have had a VERY interesting week and weekend. Whew! I guess we will see how things worked out for me on this Tuesday.
Wednesday, when I hopped on the scales–Like I am NOT supposed to do–I weighed 196 (my scales have me weighing about 3 pounds heavier than the UAB scales). I kept that lower weight for another day …and then everything changed! For the Worse!! Well, after several days of my working out more than normal, and adding back in my weight lifting–you guessed it I jumped back on those Lovely Scales and the reader hit 203.6– FREAK OUT!!
Why Freak Out? Well, as many of you know I burn a LOT of calories just sitting on my rump, 2,500 to be exact. I have to be careful how much I workout and eat, or I could find myself back where I was when we started–Gaining weight–because my body is under too much stress without enough food/nourishment. I Do Not Want That! I am following Dr. Ard’s plan, and I will cut it back if he says I have too. I DON’T want to though.
My fears renewed, still, I did not let my concerns stop me from walking more, and lifting again, nor did it stop me from trying my legs at running/jogging again. We (Dr. Ard and I) have a Plan, and I am going to work it first before running in terror that I am back on the wrong cycle!!!! Saturday night run was a fun moment: I ran 1 mile of the 2 1/4 that we lapped the track. I even jogged a little in our neighborhood today with Mike when we hit the road for a walk this morning for pre-wedding preparation. Weight gain didn’t stop me from hopping on my bike to go for an hour ride with Mikey — I messed up the Map My Ride, so I am only sure of the 3 miles we did early on; we probably did about 10 to 13 miles. It felt great.
On a positive note, my blood sugars are dropping. No meds and an hour after eating, my reading was 95 — very low. Looks like meds will be dropping Very soon. Losing meds is a GREAT THING! 🙂 I was going to say that when I got up this am I was back down to 198, but this evening I am back up to 202. Booo Hiss!!! I am going to wait until Tuesday to get worried — and I am NOT getting Back on the Scales again!! I’m just sayin’!!
The wedding we attended today was one of my younger daughter’s best buddies, Amy and Cole. We love these two kids a LOT! We had to be there, and I am so glad that we were!!
And here we go with the Pics:
Now that you all are all up to date I will call it a day. The count down to Tuesday weigh in is just around the corner ….Blessings ya’ll …S
