Today’s weight: 202.  *sigh*  However, I did do measurements and there has been some change or I did it wrong LOL.  I know I didn’t go to the gym as much this week, but I was hoping to see the scale go down since I am off the pill and another med now.  Maybe it needs more time.  IDK.  I wanted to lose 10 pounds by my birthday but that is in like 11 days so I doubt that will happen.

I had planned on going to spinning today, but when I woke up my back and head were killing and I wasn’t sure that I could even stand and move about never mind spin.  I got some coffee and moved around a bit and finally felt ok enough to go out and get some things done.  I went to Target to look for a juicer, and all they had were $100+ ones.  Uh no.  Then I went to go to Old Navy to make a return and found the mall was closed.  I then went to TJ Maxx to check for juicers and picked up a gift for my BFF since she is having a baby soon.

Then I went to the gym where I did the C25K week 1 day 3 run [32 mins, 2 miles] and then spent 30 mins on the elliptical.  My HRM said I burned 800 calories but that seems really really high.  I wonder if it is off or not?  Hmmmmm.

 Oops!  Missed a few days again.   was visiting me so my schedule was a bit off at the end of this week.

exercise recap:
Monday: I can’t even remember what I did Monday lol; oh wait I went to the chiro, free mani, neuro and had a horrid headache
Tuesday:  cleaned the house.  was going to go spinning but had random low blood sugar episode and thought I was going to pass out!
Wednesday: cybex and body pump class
Thursday: facial, nap, quick clean and then picked up 
Friday:  shopping and fun w/ 
Saturday: work, nap, errands, cleaned up room

I have plans for next week to be better on the exercise front.  I’ve even put it in my calendar so I know I have to do it.  Although having some days off definitely helped my foot out.  It feels so much better since Monday when I had it adjusted.  

tomorrow: spinning and maybe softball if it isn’t raining
Monday:  I am babysitting all day but if I can get up early and get to body pump I will
Tuesday: spinning:
Wednesday: burn class or if I can’t take it I will find something else
Thursday: gravity class
Friday: still figuring out schedule


food log Friday and Saturday

 I think I missed a day.  Today was ok.  I’ve been having pain issues and yesterday when I was all set to go spinning I felt really weird; like low blood sugar or something.  I was sweating and shaking and ice cold.  I’m not sure what it was.

I weighed in today at 201.  Finally downward movement.

Today I ended up sleeping really late for some reason and I woke up all sore.  My joints are so sore when I wake up especially in my hands.  I don’t know what this is from.  I don’t know if this is some new symptom from my headaches or just from working out more.  Today my ring finger on my right hand especially hurts and has hurt all day.  Hmmmm.

I went to the gym at 3:30ish and used the cybex for a half hour and then took BodyPump.  It was hard even though I kept the weights low for this first time.  There were times I could have had heavier ones, but over all I stayed between 2.5 and 5 pounds, and used the 10s for triceps and abs.  I am sure I will be sore tomorrow.  According to my HRM I burned 790 calories total.

 Oops I missed a few days.  I’ve been busy/not caring/idk

I went to see U2 yesterday and didn’t each much during the day; just a latte and some pumpkin bread.  I had pizza at the stadium and some yogurt when I got home.  I also finally got my hair cut.

Today I had a 10 minute massage before my adjustment and he did adjust my foot and it does feel better.  He says it is tighter than my left one.  I got a foot roller and some massage-ish lotion to see if that helps.  Then I had a free manicure and went to my neuro appt.  He has changed my meds again.  I’m now off the Keppra and T3s.  I’m now on dilantin and straight oxycodone.  One dose did nothing; I needed my full days dose to make the pain go away.   I will need to make a call to him and let him know one does jack shit.

By the time I got home I was starving/in pain so no gym again.  Augh.  I miss it and its been like 3 days.  I cannot wait to go tomorrow and run or spin.  I also need to decide between personal training and pilates and what I want to do.  And if I can afford it.  

My eating has been either too much or non existent.  I finally don’t feel like I have a cold for the most part so hopefully that will help.  But I don’t have much of an appetite; it’s a good thing I enjoy the protein shakes with the protein powder and fruit and now I am adding in fiber for an added benefit.  

I know I need to eat more veggies and I hope to start again tomorrow making sure I eat one box of frozen veggies a day at least.  

I also re-tried Pumpkin Spice lattes.  BAD IDEA.
