… Off the exercise plank.
That is what I did with walk through the park and my VIT-D craving fix! 😀
Only one problem, I went TOO LONG and TOO FAR! I was so wiped out when I got home. I even gained this AM from 182.4 to 183.2–it went down to 183 later in the morning. I am a little swollen–would LOVE the jump of 8 tenths of a pound to be FLUID! However, I think my body wants to hang out in the mid 180s–so I am gonna go back to what’s been working lately, and that is major light exercises. I really, really, really have a problem with limiting my exercise. Today’s jump kinda kicks me in the REAR on my road to victory–see I am in a race with Grumpy and OptiFast Loser for the largest % lost by Turkey Day. I am kinda crazy for going head to head with two guys. We all know how guys trash girls in losing every time, but still I just had to dive into the pool with the big dogs (both guys have lost over ONE HUNDRED TWENTY-FIVE Pounds in their journeys), but that is just how I roll.
Especially when you consider my love to move. Right now, that is NOT to my advantage in this quest I have undertaken. Why? Well, if I do any exercise over 30 minutes at a time I hurt in one fashion or another. Back ache, knee ache, neck ache … and on and on. Then there is the side affect of not losing if I play the way I wanna. Which stinks!
Life is not bad though. I have my Mikey, and it is cool and sunny here in the deep fried south. I am actually cold–hehe–for those of you who know me, know how odd this is. I am still loving my food; which is oh so GRAND! I just wanna get that scale moving back in the downward direction.
I love when the scale moves down. Mikey has reminded me all day not to think too much about the scale that I have done well all week. I kept telling myself he was right, but it didn’t help when I was draggin’ booty, hungry (there were some wickedly tempting smells floating in air today), and then there was the grumpy-girl poor Mikey had to deal with–he treated me well as always. They changed some meds that affect moods — poor Mikey — my body will level out real soon and Mikey will be a blessed man again soon; I hope.
Back onto my food, which continues to be delish. As you can see, I am so excited about that that I mention it twice. Hehe! My portions are really large. So large in fact, that MIke asked me: you get to eat all that in one setting? “Yes,” I replied with a huge grin. I was grinning because that HUGE portion was only 175 calories and tasted like a small slice of heaven. This evening’s meal of extra lean grass-feed beef and cabbage clocked in at 200 calories for a full plate of yumminess. Sadly, I am still craving Mike and Collin’s sweet potatoes, but they don’t fit into the calorie plan for today. Boo Hiss!
Oh well … it is picture time … lets see what I got!
