  • I'm still following along, waiting for the weight loss I think it's happening - you seem to be consistently lower over time? I've noticed that my weight does that "bounce-back-up", but the "bounce-back-down" keeps getting lower. At this stage I should be at goal weight by June 2015

    • Unfortunately, I have regained again, back to 136 lbs mark, from 133.6 lbs on Sat morning. I did not eat clean (had a few candies by an unknown reason) and also indulged in fruit.

      Back to the attempted VLC with a fast - bought organic cream, want to see if that will hold me better than cheese.

      In good news - I am completely joint pain free! Didn't touch eggs at all in the past couple of weeks, and lifted only 2x a week.

      My hapkido test is 21st of December. I am gonna try to go through breathing exercises and movements every day, and hopefully copy the kicks part of the list next Sunday. I am both annoyed and excited about the test. I would not have chosen to take one, but of course the student in me needs to practice. Which is not a bad thing, I suppose.

      Did rolls while my child was bouldering on the wall yesterday. Then belayed her for a while, and we did a bunch of swimming diving and playing in the pool for an hour or so. On Sunday went skating for the first time this winter (indoors though), had a blast. She's much better and not rolling her ankle. Had to buy her new skates though. Managed to grow a couple of sizes over the winter, lol. Luckily we had an extra pair of skates with us, a coworker gave me. It was like 3 sizes too big, but she had a wide foot so actually assured me she felt very comfortable. And the new pair we bought was 2 sizes too big, so yeah... fingers crossed we can go skating together once in a while including the outdoors!

      • Then, again, weighed in at 133.3 lbs this morning. Also benched 95# FINALLY!!!! I feel sooo good. Maybe elimination of eggs and the focus on dairy, red meat and fermented/cooked vegetables is what works? I haven't experienced a crazy hunger in a few weeks & I had not experienced any joint pain whatsoever. Well time will tells. For today, I am happy, happy, happy!

        Appart from lifting did rolling today. Yesterday I did 40 min on elliptical and some hanging training (toes pull-ups and leg lifts/turns) plus a 6x15 of a 50% ham curls. Weird workout, but I had an hour in the gym while baby was at her climbing class at a relatively busy time, so KB area was crowded and not much access to anything.

          • Heya! Glad to be home yesterday night after a rather stressful field-trip. So stressful in fact that I lost a night of sleep and get that "lovely" female-specific reaction to it. So, only a short walk yesterday and a long hot tub relaxation after I finally got rid of the rental truck and picked my baby up and took her to her swimming class.

            Today I did an hour of basic yoga (3 of Rodney Yee's basic morning workouts) and a short walk to take my baby to school. Worked standing and pacing for a couple of hours (will do a bit more of that in the afternoon). Other than that, just gotta do a blood donation tonight. Fingers crossed it doesn't completely floor me for the weekend. I would love to do a good lifting session tomorrow. But last time I was very tired after the donation and my iron dropped enough for the blood test the next week to pick it up. Well, they test iron before the donation, so that should give me an indication if the level was restored.

            • Damn, that rodney yee workout is no pushover. Very nice I like how you incorporate your kid in many of your activities. Fun times with the mom. Keep it up!

              • heya (wave). Unfortunately, my iron was too low to donate. Part of me wants to call my doc up to see if she puts me back up on iron pills, but the other half of me wants to wait till the next blood donation cycle in January and see if the iron level increases enough to donate. Then I will know how many times a year it is safe for me to donate blood. If the level is back to normal by January, it's 3 times. If not, I should only do it twice or less, I suppose.

                Anyhow. Cold here, down to -20'ies. But we had a great weekend overall. Did a couple bouts of snow-shoveling & went sleighing for about half an hour (until I got frozen feet!) When we cam back home, apparently it was -20... lol. Other than that, did a good lifting session, push-pressed 73 lbs, getting closer to my former max. But Could not DL 190 lbs.

                In the end, I was completely taken off balance by a guy asking me to teach him cleans, because he thought I had a perfect form. ??? I didn't think so - I actually thought 65# was too heavy for me, so I was musculing it up too much. But, anyway, I tried to get him through what my PT was trying to get into me. Oh, well.

                I also have a full list of what to practice for hapkido test (ouch) & the class was pretty intense with trying to keep up and remember. I still don't remember how we are supposed to do the breathing, the u-tube has a bit different technique. And, I need to learn now Korean count to ten. And, great, apparently, there is a Korean and Sino-Korean.

                Kept on yoga every morning, go me! I really want to get back to the habit of 20 min with RY every morning - it is really good for a stiff. And, boy, am I stiff.

                • One of those weird roll-ups of weight this morning, back to 135.8. I did a brisk walk for about an hour in bitter cold, did yoga and a bit of hapkido practice. An SM day, but still, I think the weight is either cumulative or is it sauerkraut? Oh, well. Kindda annoying after staying under 134 for a few days. But! Taking a dya off today, meeting a new PT - not sure what she can do for me, and took a pic of my AWESOME ziggo cacti:

                  • Oh, nice picture. You seem to have far better luck getting them to bloom than I do. Brava, good lady.

                    • I think it's all about exposure. They love this window

                      Anyway, the cardinal sin of eating fruit... or whatever. 136.8 lbs this morning, back to where I started on Oct 18th.
                      The new PT is Okay, she wants to work HIT. Like that's gonna help. Had 1 hour PT session, spend 30 min on elliptical while my baby was in a class, went to the steam room. Ate well, but, yes, had fruit, and before bed had a tbsp of honey because I have a weird cold. And, yes, 1 lb up.

                      It's still -20. It took over an hour to get to work, so the only way I can go to the gym today is if I skip going home before the garden club meeting. I can try to do it, but atm I just can't think about it any more, short of berating my stupidity for not persisting when I was ahead.

                      • Yakes, I feel top-miserable, so I am going to be reasonable, pack up and go home. I ended up working through lunch today, so it's going to be zero exercise, like a complete zero. No walking, no nothing, just literally sitting on my butt all day. Fingers crossed I can do something useful in the gym tomorrow!

                        • 134.2 this morning. The swings in weight are troubling. Still feel like a zombie. Definetly not up to lifting any serious iron, so I pulled out old UD2 schedules, and gonna try to put in a 6x15 light lifts before lunch, a quick yoga/MA learning session in mid afternoon, and either a steam room or a run on elliptical while the kiddo is in the swimming class. Going to try to stick to the light breakfast/supper with a large lunch routine (look, Dr. Oz was the only thing I found watchable while running on the elliptical on Tue).

                          • Ookay. Just had a protracted discussion with myself: Do I really want a lemon for the efforts it takes to get it out of the fridge and cut a slice... Holy cow, today's version of the bug is sheer exhaustion. I had to call to the office sick because I couldn't walk much this morning.So far I accomplished packing my guys' lunches and moving to the couch and making coffee/tea. Frigging productive...

                            I can't believe I was able to do my 6x15s and some KBs yesterday. Today even yoga feels out of the question. Grr. In fact, I feel like I need to track right back upstairs and take a nap. Because cutting that lemon was, you know, rigorous exercise.

                            Interestingly I have no fever, instead it's on the opposite like a degree lower than 'normal'? ???

                            • Gheesh, get well soon! When cutting a lemon is rigorous there is definitely something going on.

                              • (Waves) Back from the dead. Well, sort of. I figured that what I have is a sinus infection, rather than the cold. The night flu pills seem to help and today I took the day sinus pills to the office. I did an hour of yoga and a touch of walking on Saturday, and about 1.5 hours of walking on Sunday and did 4 sets of 10 squats- 10 push-ups - 10 Mountain Climbers, but missed hapkido (still not up to it).

                                Today, I am going to try a spinning cardio my PT wrote out for me. I gotta get it out of her why on earth spinning is a great idea. If it is just a resistance cardio, I really do not want to do it, because I do not want to fry legs on the off days, and I have no desire to have bigger quads. Will see the PT tomorrow.

                                Oh, and I got a parking pass from one of my co-workers, so I am back to the early schedule.
