Still haven’t managed to budge any excess weight, but to be honest I’ve had a few distractions lately.
Saw a specialist today, and have been pencilled in for the 19th of December for an operation to remove an ovarian cyst… Had another ultrasound and found another on the other side, so will probably do both and be quite sore after :-(
Never mind, need to get these things sorted before they get worse!
Anyway! Once that is over and I’ve recovered we’ll be past the Xmas season and into the new year – time for those healthy New Years resolutions to kick in! I’ll be good, but I think being in Vanuatu in February will be a fantastic chance for me to lose some weight – I’ll be living on fish, rice and fruit, and walking 15km+ per day! 1 week ago
I decided to cancel my gym membership… I wasn’t using it so it was just a waste of money. So now the weather is getting better i will try to walk outside more.
All I really want to do is go birdwatching during my free time, which is good because a lot of the places I go you walk and walk for ages without really thinking about how far it is. And there are lots of up and down hill parts. And I enjoy it. So I keep going!
I’m a bit hopeless when it comes to healthy eating lately… I either forget its there or don’t feel like it when I’m at home, or I’m out or at work and there’s no where nearby to go and get fruit or something healthy, or it’s expensive! I need to make more of an effort to make sure I take things with me! Even though I struggle to lose weight even when I’m trying really hard, I think the most important things for me is to avoid getting any serious health problems, like the diabetes that is prevalent in my family.
Looking forward to my day off so I can go bushwalking and birdwatching. I’m going to a conservation park I’ve been to before but planning to walk a different trail I haven’t walked before. Can’t wait! 1 month ago
I have started taking an multi-vitamin. I am also watching what i eat and how much i eat. I have actually started losing weight. 1 month ago
Last week I saw the doctor about the headaches I often get, as well as some lower abdomen pains I’ve been having…
Had a blood test and ultrasound to determine the causes of these things -
Turns out I’m vitamin D deficient and borderline for thyroid function which may be causing my headaches, personally I think I’m probably always dehydrated too so trying to drink more water and will take Vit D tablets.
As for the other pain, found out I have an ovarian cyst, so I need to see a specialist and possibly have that removed.
Trying to get healthy and then these other problems arise! :-/ 1 month ago
... Can be hard. But I have been eating breakfast every day for nearly 2 weeks now, which doesn’t sound like a big deal, but for me it is. For so many years I’ve either skipped breakfast entirely, or had a muffin or muesli bar or some leftovers.
For the last couple of weeks I’ve been having a piece of toast with a small bowl of yoghurt with bran and sometimes fruit. On the weekend I had a cooked breakfast: eggs one day, and made pancakes for everyone the other day.
So I seem to be doing well with this new habit so far, now I just need to cut out more of the naughty snacks and exercise!! 2 months ago
Haven’t been going to the gym nearly as much as I should have been, never have been much of a gym junkie, but I still make it there every now and again. Just trying to eat healthier at the moment – more fish and salad and vegetables, and yoghurt, fruit and bran – yummy and healthy!! Not banning everything naughty completely, as I don’t think its realistic. 2 months ago
Bike. Walk. Jog. 6 months ago
Today I didn’t do too bad. I didn’t wake up earlier so I didn’t get to exercise but I’ll try again tomorrow.
Drank 2 liters of water today
Breakfast: Seltzer, 4 ginger thins, and a granola bar.
Snack: Apple and 2 clementines
Lunch: 1 cup fried rice and 1/2 cup general tso’s chicken with a root beer
Snack: 4 ginger thins, and Mott’s fruit snacks
Dinner: Chicken wings, 1/2 turkey club with chips and a ginger ale
Total calories: 2,248
Not sure if that’s good or bad. I mean, I did eat fruit and the sandwich was pretty healthy. Could have done with out the 2 sodas and the ginger thins, but man those things are so good and since I’ve been pregnant all I want is ginger. I just love it.
It’s hard for me to determine exactly how many calories I actually need. Before I was pregnant, I would try to eat no more than 1800 calories a day and now that I am pregnant I’ve read that your supposed to eat 300 calories extra. Extra to what? What you previously ate or 300 more than 2000 calories. If that’s the case than I guess I’m doing fine.
I don’t want to gain too much weight bc I’m only 5’1” and I know that every lb I gain I’m just gonna have to lose later. I’m over half way there and have gained about 13 lbs which is good, and I still look good. All belly, mostly. My health is so important to me bc it is my epicenter of well being. If I’m not healthy, than I’m not happy and I don’t feel good so good health is a HIGH priority as I feel it always should be.
Tomorrow I would like to concentrate on eating less sugar and hopefully getting on the treadmill for a little while :-) 6 months ago
I’m over the half way point of my pregnancy and was actually doing really well up until lately. I don’t eat any more, amount wise, as I usually do but I am eating horrible stuff like a lot of junk food and sugary stuff. Like yesterday, I ate cereal for breakfast, a mini pizza for lunch, and Chinese food for dinner….HORRIBLE!!! I was eating like 4-5 fruit and veg a day and drinking a lot of water too, now I drink sugary stuff all day. I can’t seem to get enough of Tang orange drink. I calculated the calories that I actually drank yesterday and it was something like 800!!! That’s insane!!!
I’m a relatively healthy person. Before I was pregnant I ran and was really active, I also ate a lot of wholesome foods. Now it’s like I’m so tired or lazy that I just want to eat whatever and go to bed. I need to start being more active too. I know, it’s the cycle; you eat like crap because you are exhausted, you are exhausted because you don’t exercise and you don’t feel like exercising because your tired from eating crap. Oh where do I start??
I think I’ll go for a walk and then go grocery shopping. I just need to put it in my head that outside food is not an option. I need to be more consistent. I should wake up 30 mins earlier than I do and walk on my treadmill. Oh Lord how I’m still paying for it!
I don’t want to BLOW UP!! I want to be as healthy as possible but chocolate truffles and shakes keep calling my name. Of course I’ll treat myself every once in a while but I’ve been doing it like everyday or when ever I want, which is close to everyday :-) Right now I am within the range of weight that I am supposed to be but still is uncomfortable carrying around an extra 10-15 lbs that I wasn’t 5 month ago. I really didn’t want to gain more than 20 lbs because I was probably close to 10 lbs overweight when I became pregnant.
I really just want to do the best for my baby. I want to set this little guy or gal up for success and I know that the way I treat my body now is going to have a huge affect on this babies life. I promise to be more conscious of what I put in my body.
Goal for the week: Start walking for 25 mins. everyday, start eating a more wholesome diet. 6 months ago
Been for two sessions, and eating healthier! 7 months ago
I joined a gym. Perfect timing – this week only it’s no joining fee! So now I just need to make sure I go! Tomorrow I’m going to buy some new gym clothes that make me feel fabulous, and perhaps I will do my first session tomorrow afternoon! And I will NOT post on Facebook every time I go to the gym or I will actually want to slap myself!
I also registered for the colour run with a friend, to my understanding you wear white tees and walk or run 5km whilst throwing paint like things at each other! That’s happening on the 19th of may, sounds fun! 7 months ago
