Hey Wendy, Add dry brushing and rebounding to the list of ways to help skin shrink
Hey Wendy, Add dry brushing and rebounding to the list of ways to help skin shrink
Thanks Janine. So funny that I have two sets of brushes in my drawer. Never thought I'd be 'needing' them - LOL!
Love the rebounder - it's in the living room in front of the tv - but wish I could really bounce. As it is my knees only allow a gentle bounce, but I can do at least 20 minutes at a time, and I do feel it all over.
Nice to feel and see the changes in my body. So looking forward to the next few months. Breaking my own boundaries and what I can and can't do to be healthy has ripple effects through my whole life. Never before have I been able to adopt a 'lifestyle' and know that it's mine. I can flow through my life with grace and ease as long as fat flushing is my new norm. Didn't know I needed it, but now know I can't live without it. That attitude shift makes all the different in my ability to successfully fat flush every day.
Time for a little LLC to start my day. Left it sitting too long yesterday and realized it is just like hot cereal. Might just heat it up today
Good lunchtime meeting. Took my spinach salad with eggs and tomatoes and didn't cave to all the fresh baked pizza and pasta. Used one of my 'go tubes' from my backpacking days to store my cran juice and added it to the iced water. Worked really well.
Good day. All on track. Got to the water with my man and had a good deep water workout. News from the pain specialist is that I'm approved for an epidural injection. If I can get the lower back pain mitigated, I'll be a happy camper.
In the meantime, I'm visualizing what the next seven pounds will look and feel like. That will put me under 250 for the first time in 24 years and will be the first 21 pounds lost. Will it come off my stomach, my hips, my thighs? Wouldn't mind if it came off my arms and calves too. Will I have to get rid of 1, 10, 15 pieces of clothing? What will I reward myself with?
Here we go for the next round. Svelte it is!
Doing good, kiddo! I like the visualization aspect. Maybe I should post a photo of me in my younger years when I was thin on the bathroom mirror for motivation.
Your reward? Well,if it were me, I would get a manicure and pedicure. That is something I do not do too often. Or maybe get a new hair cut and style? Get a facial at one of them spas. I love sitting in a sauna. I should set mine up, now that it's getting cooler outside. This helps my arthritis and good for detoxing.
I love the word svelte! It sounds better than skinny. (which sounds so anemic!)
Hello again. I couldn't get back on the internet because I had company for four days. I can do great on FFP when I am at other people's houses but not when company comes to my house. I have told you that before. Well, it ended up being a disaster for me. I ate many wrong things. I get very nervous cooking for people. I want it to be delicious and perfect. They came Thursday and I started messing up on Friday. I haven't gotten back into the groove again yet. We took them to the airport on Sunday. Monday I had a crown put on a tooth that had been hurting. Yesterday I realized that they put they put the crown on the wrong tooth and that my tooth is still hurting. I am upset to say the least. Still very busy. I see a break coming in about 5 months. My daughter in law has breast cancer and I will be needed to help her. She has decided to have a double mastectomy because she doesn't was to take a chance or it reoccurring. They live over 4 hours away. My grandson has to have his spine fused Oct. 19th and will need a lot of help after. He has many medical problems. He cannot eat, walk, sit up, talk. He gets tube fed at night. He can only use his legs and head to move around on his back a little. Now with this fusing I am not sure if he will be able to do that. The poor little guy. My heart aches for him.
Enough sad news. I need a few good words to get me back on track with the FF. I will try really hard today to be perfect. I only need one or two days of being perfect and I will be all set.
Hi Katheryn! Life happens, doesn't it? And, add the fact that we ladies are also emotional can be a blessing or a curse. Emotional sadness/stress = emotional eating (bad foods). Emotional happiness and contentment = staying on a great dietary course. No happy medium. But, that is something we need to learn.
Don't beat yourself up (too much! ;^) )
Truly sorry to hear about the oral issues. I'd get the dentist to do the other one for FREE!
Sad to hear about your DIL with breast cancer. I am a cancer survivor. She will be in my prayers.
Don't let the Dr's paint a doom and gloom picture of your G-son. The body is an amazing healing machine!
He could be out running around and playing in a year!
I have been going thru emotional issues lately too.
And I realized what I did wrong.
I hope to correct that later, when it happens again.
Life is full of tests. Sometimes we have to take them over and over a few times before we get it right!
Don't try to be perfect. None of us are. Just do your BEST!
Get back on track and forward we march on! ((((HUGS)))) to you!
So sorry to hear you hit a bump in your road. I'll be praying for all that's going on in your life.
I agree with Wendy; perfect we'll never be. I always shoot for excellence!
Wishing you peace and excellence going forward,
Big HUGS Kathryn! Oh the challenges you face make mine seem minuscule!
Big breath, exhale and focus on your inner self. That's where your strength is - and you're going to need it for the next few months.
Piece by piece you will deal with the challenges and win! I know you - you can do this. Remember we are here to support you and we are
here to love and hug you when things aren't flowing the way you want.
You can do this. Drink your cranwater, make your smoothies and plan a few meals.
When I serve company, I just make a huge veggie platter, cook up the protein and starch and that's it. If they want dessert, they get to serve that one themselves. No one has complained - and in fact my mom is still eating that way. Never know when you might influence someone in a positive way because you have the guts to stick to your plan.
Sending prayers and aloha your way.
Tap Tap to you.
Now - the good news. The pounds that crept in over the potluck are gone - plus another 1/2 pound. 256 is still the numbers between my toes, but it's closer to 255 than it was. Yea! Water workouts make a difference. Unfortunately I found out that my left knee swells even with the deep water workouts. Guess it's gonna be workout and ice and elevation when I get home.
Off to work on our booth at the fair. Lots to do and wondering if it's gonna be me doing the rest of it. gonna be an adventure if it is.
Lemon water and smoothies to go this morning.
Tap tap ladies. We can do this!
Another water workout successfully completed. That makes 3 this week Plus hours at the fair building our booth. I'm sure i lost a pound just from sweating!
I'm working now on visualizing the next 20 pounds. I know I haven't lost 20 yet, but I decided that there is no fast rule about when you can start visualizing the 'next twenty'. Reframes what I'm working on and keeps the long ranger perspective in focus. Besides, i'm only 6 pounds away from the first 20, but I want to be ready to flow through the next 20 with grace and ease and celebration. That takes a little foresight so no hiccups of caloric celebration sneak in.
Feeling good. Gotta ice the knee. Time to relax for the evening.
Tap Tap to another successful day. I think Friday is the beginning of week 10. Amazing this new lifestyle is sticking.
So Sweet. Got another long day 'away' so my honey is boiling eggs and peeling fruit. Maybe I'll even get a veggie plate out of him
So nice to sit down to dinner and look at my plate with my protein and starch all in the proper proportions. Love that he's learned what I need to eat and prepares it for me.
Another long day. Home late tonight. Gotta pack a better water jug yesterdays leaked and left me with no water. Only drive thru was Krispy creme donuts. You should have heard the lady:
Me: One orange juice and one large water please.
Her: What kind of donuts do you want with that?
Me: None, just the drinks.
Her: You don't want donuts?
Me: No. Thank you.
Her: You sure you don't want donuts (disbelief in her voice)?
Me: I'm sure - thank you. Just the drinks.
I pull up to pay and they are all looking at me. She's so flustered she gives me the wrong change.
So yesterday I went to Krispy Creme and stayed on my Fat Flushing plan Score!
