Re: Healthy Living Check in 8/18/15

  • It's been a rough few weeks for me, I'm feeling pretty crappy from the IVF meds so I'm not really in a very good healthy place.  I am thinking ahead however to the start of the school year and how I am going to recover from the past few weeks.  Obviously I would love to say that I'll be pregnant so it won't matter, but the more likely future will be I'll be large and in charge and nothing to show for it....

    1.  Not much :(

    2.  Start taking long walks again until I'm cleared for serious exercise

    3.  DIET DIET DIET.  I've just been eating like garbage and I think that is seriously what's hurting me more than the no exercise. 

    QOTW:  I was the varsity goalie for my soccer team for 3 years, cheerleader (not a real one we didn't even have a football team), and swam on the swim team :)

  • Hey there! Checking in like I said I would.

    1. I lost 5lbs last week. I know it is mostly water weight, but I am okay with that. I stuck to my plan and did not have 1 sip of alcohol. This is huge!

    2. I need to move more still. Yoga is not for me. I have been trying that until I get the all clear, but don't like it so I keep putting it off. I want to spin and bootcamp again.

    3. This weekend we have friends in town for an alumni event. There will be a lot of food and a lot of booze in the mix. I am going to be DD this weekend so I won't be tempted to drink (at least while out) and I will try to make smart decisions (while still partaking) the rest of the weekend.
    If I get the all clear on Thursday, I will hitbup the treadmill that night just to get back in the swing of things. I think I need to start C25K again to keep myself paced while I get back into it after back to back surgeries.

    Growing up I played softball in the fall and spring/summer seasons and basketball in the winter. In high school I joined the field hockey team since fall ball wasn't available anymore. And I was a Varsity rower in college which was a 2 season sport meaning a year round commitment. I blew out my knees my junior year, didn't compete my senior year and have been moving from activity to activity ever since trying to find something I loved as much as team sports.

  • Got up early to do my workout this morning

    Did not do anything over the weekend

    Trying to finish my last week of the 21 day fix strong. Also am making healthy recipes from the cookbook

    I played soccer for 12 years, baseball and softball until middle school. In high school I played golf in the fall and soccer in the spring.
  • Thanks for posting this @Frenchteachermama! Last week was tough because I was on vacation and had limited meal options and lots of time in the car. But I got out for a run twice and that was good. This week I'm trying to get back into tracking with MFP and working on cooking meals versus eating out. GTKY: I played soccer for 9 years and tennis for 5 years. I miss soccer and would love to coach one day.
