Oh .. now I know I can't be the only "list" maker .. so ..
And, if you don't make a list .. what is your strategy????
Hey Ranae! Nice to "see" you again!!!
I'm not making a list, however...but I have vowed to get back on track. Things have been a little tought at my household. My Grandmother's Cancer has spread, so emotional eating got the best of me. I haven't been doing my normal walking routines, I've just been dragging myself on the 6 blocks I have to walk to work and thats it.
But tomorrow is a new day!!!!! My weeks normally start on Sunday, but I need the extra day to start again. My weight tracker is ending soon and I'm getting worried I cannot make my goal of 250 as I wanted to. But I AM NOT losing hope. I will be back on track tomorrow. I vow when i awake tomorrow to take a nice 1 hr walk in my area. I have been eating my normal 5 meals a day, but some choices I have been making are not the right ones.
I vow to also lose another 10lbs before I see the doctor in July. It's not my goal, but its closer enough. I dont think it would be healthy to try for the 24lbs I really need.
With that said.... I will be on track tomorrow and that is a promise!!!!!
Good luck to everybody else!!!!!
Hi! I am a list maker and breaker (side bender), but generally do well the majority of the time.
1.get up (alarm set) at 9:40 a.m.
2.turn on computer & get e-mail
3.set up cappachino drink & breakfast bars
5.get snail mail from mailbox
7.take allergy pill & vitamins
8.do some research on computer
9.get dressed for work & get accessories on
10. make sure all snacks & other take to work items are in my bag
........stopping at these
Once I get to work, the gloves are off as I don't know what I will find. Each day with the residents is different according to their mood, if they fell, etc.
I am working on my weekend list. I fulfilled getting the dentist appt. yesterday morning for my youngest daughter to get 2 wisdom teeth extracted on the 8th of June 1 p.m. Of course she was concerned about what shape she would be in considering she is graduating later in the week.
Glad to see you back Renae and back on the track, stronger and more determined than ever!!!!
I've had a consultation with an Ayurvedic practitioner and she gave me a list of things to do in the morning. So I am trying to alter my routine.
1. Wake up 5-5:30 am
2. Wash tongue with tongue scraper (yah, it's weird, but I'm trying it)
3. Drink water from copper cup (don't ask, it's some Ayurvedic thing)
5. Give myself a lymphatic massage with sesame oil
6. Lie on my back and elevate my legs for 5-15 minutes.
7. Get dressed, makeup, brush teeth.
8. Go to work................eat breakfast 7:30-8:30
I'm trying not to eat small meals now throughout the day. I'm trying to just eat 3 sensible meals to give my colon time to rest in between meals. I'll let you guys know if this works for me. Also - no caffeine - killer.
Hope to be healthier and maybe lose some weight besides. Just started this. Wish me luck.
I don't keep a specific list, but my day starts pretty much as follows:
1) alarm goes off at 3:35 am
2) get up and take thyroid meds
3) go to kitchen, let dogs out and turn on coffee pot
4) back to bathroom
a. brush teeth
c. dry hair
5) get dressed for work
6) by now at least 30 minutes have passed since thyroid med and I can have coffee..
7) go back to bedroom/bathroom to finish getting ready for work.
8) back to kitchen to feed dogs
9) clean up dog dishes, etc
10) eat breakfast (not much - as it's only 4:15 by now and who wants a lot at that time
of day??? It's usually just a hard cooked egg, english muffin w/peanut butter, etc)
11) check bag for meds & other necessities for the day, snacks, etc
12) leave for work at 4:45 am
From there, all lists are useless because I never know what's going to come up during the day.
PMoon, I remember you said you were going to Ayurvedic practitioner. Ayurvedic medicine has been proven to be very helpful over the centuries. I hope it works for you and please keep us posted.
I will. I just started. The hardest part is no snacking. I was one of those people who constantly ate all day - little meals - sometimes just fruit. But she is trying to get me to eat bigger meals 3 times a day. She said the colon needs time to digest and rest.
The other thing is giving up caffeine. I love my iced tea, especially in the summer. But caffeine, you know - bad.
I'll let you know..........
