Today Is A new Day

Mar 18, 2011

Yesterday I was pretty down.  It was a day off from constant go, go, go, and things finally caught up with me.   My husband being gone a month now, and my weight stalling a bit, just made me mopey.....

But after posting my blog, and a thread on , I got a lot of good support and feedback, for which I am very thankful for. 

One lady sent me a link, and this was in it:



Thou shall exercise 5 times per week for 40-45 minutes.


Thou shall not covet the carbohydrate.


Thou shall not eat more than 3 meals per day and shall not have unhealthy snacks between meals.


Thou shall drink at least 8 glasses of water each day.


Thou shall eat a minimum of 70 grams of protein each day.


Thou shall honor thy commitment to good health and healthy choices.


Thou shall keep follow-up appointments with thy doctor.


Thou shall always take thy vitamins.


Thou shall not weigh thyself more than once-a-week.


Thou shall always keep the memory of the past and the hope of the future as a clear image in thy mind.



I am so printing this out and living it closely.   I don't know if I can do the "only weigh yourself once a week".....its more of a daily thing.  :D   My hubby always fussed at me for doing that.  I'm just so dern impatient.  There is a reason I never owned a scale before now....


I am coming to the conclusion that my nutritionist and surgeon are giving me bad information.   I have been on her recommended diet less than a week, and already I can see its not for me.  The more carbs I am allowed to eat, the more I will eat.   I thinks its less that I am addicted to food, but more that I'm addicted to carbs.  The more I ate/eat, the more I'd crave them.  Sweet things, sugary things, starchy things.  So....for me, carbs in super moderation.


I worked out today.  About 10 minutes on the treadmill, 20 on the recumbent bike, and 5 on the cardio glide. 

Maybe not even a full 5, because by then my legs were jelly.  My heart and lungs feel good and invigorated though.  :)



I got to participate in my Oma's surprise 80th birthday in Ohio via Skype today.  That was totally cool.  My mom and dad flew/drove up there to surprise her yesterday, and then today threw her a party she didn't expect.

Unfortunately, my gift (the bed tray I decoupaged) didn't get there today, but hopefully by tomorrow.

I got to chat with a few family members there, and watch while she opened presents.  It was great.


Well, that's all for now.  I'm gonna go be productive...... or try to at least.
