Wednesday October 20, 2010

Just cannot believe how quickly this year is going. It is beginning to get that Fall feel to the air. It is now getting dark at 7 p.m. instead of 9:30, and I am still waking up at my regular time, just not in that big of a rush to get up.

I am up to 11 miles on the stationary bike now, have a goal to do 11 miles each day this week,and today will be day #3. So will see how that goes. Wish I was as committed to my eating as I am to my exercise, but still holding my own, just having to white knuckle it at the moment.

To all that pass by, ''hang in there."

It has been a long time.

I have so neglected my blog here lately, so thought I should come by and at least do an update.

I am struggling, but that is nothing really new. I am holding onto my goal weight each month, but only by the tips of my fingers. I have been reading about this gal on another forum I am a member of that is completely zero carb I am finding this to be so unnerving for some reason. If her picture is really how she looks then all I can say is WOW!!!!!!!!! But, I just don't know, as I hear so often at my Weight Watcher meeting, ''we didn't get this way from eating too many green beans." That is so true. My biggest carb downfall is the sweets and junk food that I love, love, love. As I told someone yesterday, ''I found out that candy corn does not count as a vegetable."

Also heard that WW is coming out with a new plan, now not sure what that plan maybe, but I certainly hope it is something new, and not just changing the name of something as they did when they went from ''core" to changing the name to ''filling foods", what a crock.

I am still hitting the gym, not getting in as much time as I once did due to they will not let them open the door or let us in until exactly 5 a.m., and I have to get home to take care of Bob, so that cuts me short. However, a few months back I purchased a Gazelle, it was used, the counter does not work on it, but hey it was 30 bucks, and I do that nearly everyday, for at least 30-45 minutes and that is alone with my gym time. Oh and since the last time I was here, I have begun to ride the bike. Something I have not been able to do since I had my knee replaced. Still cannot ride the recumbent type bike, but the other bike I have been peddling like a wild woman. I have also noticed that if I put too much resistance on then my knees hurt like the devil, so I go from some resistance to no resistance. The other day I did 11 miles on the bike, in 35 minutes, peddling like the Wicked Witch of the West on the Wizard of Oz movie.

So beginning today, I am going to work at getting myself off the sugar/junk stuff....yes again, I am going to be working at this. Lets face is a never ending battle.
