  1. So I gotta say, I love my JC Consultant, he's so positive and awesome and just makes me feel very "can-do." I always leave feeling in a good mood and like I can take on my upcoming week! I was down 3 lbs at my weigh-in! So that makes about 5 pounds total lost on Jenny Craig in 3 weeks, even with a week of gaining a pound while on vacation! I'm feeling good about this. This week, I'm trying a few things that have a little more cheese in them (like the margherita pizza) because they look good, and I'll eat them for dinner, so only my dogs really have to deal with the consequences, lol! I managed to make it through my workout yesterday, even with my pain, and my trainer pushed me a bit too, which I think I needed. I wanted to be all self-defeating, but she wouldn't let me. I'm incredibly lucky to have good team members on my health journey with my consultant and my trainer both helping me so much!! Today, I'm lucky because I get some time at home before I have to go in for client meetings this afternoon. I needed some introvert time, and I got some last night and today. Feeling positive so far, and I slept well, and my pain levels are back down today, so it's a good one so far!
  2. OK, I just finished my lunch - Classic Cheeseburger - Pretty good! Green beans with olive oil and garlic - oh dear, I'm so over these things now, lol! With my current plan (Rapid Results), I'm supposed to have EITHER the Cheesy Broccoli OR the Green Beans + Olive Oil twice a week (JC foods) with lunch. However, I can't have the cheesy broccoli because of my lactose intolerance, so I've only been getting the green beans. I've now had them six times (2x a week for 3 weeks) and I'm officially OVER THEM! I want to make my own instead. Arrgggh! I'm going to talk about it with my consultant today and see if there's something else I can do on my own instead, just, something about the texture has been rubbing me the wrong way this week, it's like they are squeaky on my teeth and just weird! ... OK, I'm done ranting now, I've just been priding myself on not being a picky eater, but it's also hard not to be high-maintenance with the lactose stuff. I did not sleep so well last night due to my pain issues, and it's making it difficult to focus and be motivated today. I'm full of the "I DON'T WANNA"'s! So, tonight, I am going to self-care. I'll get home, have my White Bean Chili with some added veggies and such, and my Lemon Cake. Then, I'm going to snuggle onto the couch in my personal study, wrap a blanket around myself, and hopefully spoon with my little dog Scout (if she's not too rambunctious tonight). We are going to watch a movie - I haven't decided on which one yet, I'm debating between Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings. I just need some personal "me" time, I'm a bit of an introvert and I've been around people a LOT for the past two weeks, so my batteries need a little recharging. Plus, we are getting ready to move and just listed the house, so my body has been taxed with the cleaning and lifting and such, so I'm sure that's not helping. Definitely time for rest and replenishing my mental and physical resources! Then, I will be ready to tackle the rest of my week! What do you do to recharge your batteries?
  3. So, my Oopsies for today: things have been pretty busy at the office, and when that happens, I lose track of time and don't eat when I'm supposed to. It's of particular concern right now because I have 3 real estate deals all happening at once (such transactions are kind of challenging in Illinois), so everything is time sensitive. So, if something is needed "now, now, now" there really isn't much time to eat until "later, later, later." And that's how I ended up eating half of my lunch, and my afternoon snack, at about 3pm. I fortunately managed to sneak in my entree at 12pm, so I wasn't too bad, but I was definitely feeling pretty hungry by then! My Daisies for today: I managed to make it allllllll the way downtown to Chicago City Hall today (it's over an hour in traffic) and got fingerprinted! ... No, I didn't commit a crime. It's a requirement for anyone wanting to volunteer with Chicago Animal Care & Control. One of my big goals in life is to have a facility where I can foster several animals at a time (which I'm actually close to attaining... but I'll go into that some other time). Chicago, being a bigger city, has a lot of animals in need, so I decided to focus my efforts with them. While this may not seem like much, the benefit of this is, I will be getting a lot of experience with different animals, who will present me with a variety of challenges. BUT, first I have to deal with "Crook County" (it's actually Cook County, but people who live around Chicago know how they really are) and their laborious intake process. The sad thing is, the process is very prohibitive, keeping more people from volunteering and depriving the shelter of helping hands. (While it does keep out dishonest folks who might not have the dogs' best interests at heart, it can also keep away a lot of well-meaning people, too). 1) You have to attend a volunteer orientation - they have them a couple times a month, so that's not a big deal. 2) You have to undergo a criminal background check - makes sense, you don't want anyone with animal cruelty history to be let in. 3) You have to get fingerprinted - and the only place to get fingerprinted is at Chicago City Hall, between the hours of 9am and 3pm, Monday through Friday. (...uh, really?) 4) After getting fingerprinted, there is a 4 to 6 WEEK processing time lag to get approved while they await the results of the fingerprinting! 5) Then, and only then, can you get trained. (training is not arduous, you come in and walk dogs with an experienced volunteer for a couple of sessions, after that, you can come in whenever you want) So, for me, the hard part, finding time to get over and get fingerprinted, is done, and it's just a matter of time now. I just want to get in there and start walking the dogs and helping them! I will only be able to make it for a couple sessions a month, but it's something I desperately want to do, seeing all those dogs in need of time outside of their cages, some fresh air and a chance to stretch their legs. I can't wait until I can do more to help them, but for now, I'm focusing on the smaller victories that are building me up to where I want to be. OK, not a lot of "weight loss" and stuff in this post, but, it's what I'm focused on right now and what's motivating me to stay in shape, I'll need those strong legs for exercising puppy dogs! Also, these are my own lil' monsters, I love 'em to pieces. They are both girls. The Jack Russell Terrier is named Scout (she's a mischief maker and a tom boy) and the Lab-Chow mix is Taunie (she is the golden child who can do no wrong).

    ROCK BOTTOM

    I recently hit what I think (HOPE) is my rock bottom. My weight has been steadily increasing forever. I thought I had it somewhat under control, but after quitting JC prior to the summer I continued to gain. One day I stepped on the scale and the most upsetting thing happened. The scale registered at over 300 pounds. I stepped off and laughed. I laughed to cover the tears. I weigh 300 pounds. And I can see it in pictures. I can feel it in my clothes and in the difficulty I have carrying myself around. I am ashamed. But I'm also at a point where I call it as I see it. I'M FAT. I AM AN OBESE WOMAN. And if I don't do something I am going to have health and physical problems as I get older. My father is on a walker in his early 60's in a large part due to the damage his weight did to his body. I do not want that to be me. I need to figure this out. I don't know how to figure this out. What can't my brain wrap around the fact that I AM FAT AND IT IS MY OWN FAULT. I don't know where to start as far as fixing this issue. Diet and exercise. YES! It doesn't work. I doubt myself. I don't know enough. I think this 'one last bite' won't matter. What has to happen for me to fix this? I was considering gastric bypass but my insurance won't cover it. Short of hiring a personal chef/dietician I don't know what to do. I am overwhelmed. I am scared. I don't know what to do. I cannot see that scale continue to go up. I can't live like this anymore.

    You Tube Fitness Videos

    So some of you know I have been working out at my fitness class I take (Orange Theory) but tonight I was inspired by SFMOM who was dancing at home. So I searched for dance videos... and found one that is a little Silly - but got me up off my chair and sweating - and not heading right to dessert and bed. So I think I will see if I can keep this up for 7 days. So this is the 7 days of you tube videos... None of them are my videos... and I have a bunch that I love that really work you out that i have posted on the JC Forum. My intention here are gentle videos - that stress having fun - rather than a million squats... as I do those in my class. OK I could do more... but never mind. CIZE Dance Video _ Shawn T Day 1:: https://youtu.be/tj9d6aBOzDo 6/25 - It was a bit silly - but by the end of 30 minutes I was sweating. And if you are ever depressed or have any issues - working out always helps. You may not want to do it - but you never ever finish and say jeez I wish i didn't do that. 6/29 - Day 2 - Did the next CIZE Dance video it was fun. Not much of a workout for me - but a good way to breakup the day and step away form my desk and pc work. 21 Day Fix Well lets dance turned into lets see what else Beachbody has - and so now I have just completed day 3 of 21 Day Fix. An outstanding workout program. Really making me work, but with modification I can do. Its available to buy DVDs or just use use the app or website - beachbodyondemand.(for a monthly fee). 6/30 Day 4 - Pilates (Think planks and leg lifts) it was what they call an active rest day - but leg exercises are hard. Imagine if I did them al these years (I did not).

    Week four

    So before I started Jenny my current plus size clothes were tight. Even wearing my bras left me in pain at the end of the day because all my clothes seemed to be shrinking, or rather I was expanding. After four weeks on the program I noticed that I can now wear my jeans and bras with comfort and they actually fit the way they are supposed to. I lost 9.6 lbs this month (a Christmas month no less) and I already am feeling emotionally better about where things are headed. I also hit a milestone of getting out of the 270's in pounds.

    Don't Just Eat Jenny Craig's Food 4 New Tips

    Loosing weight is the goal for this program but what helps is exercise. I have looked up some spiffy ways to make exercise and get your metabolism higher. 1.) Drink water. Drinking water all the time boosts your metabolism by 5%, depending on the amount you drink. Try to stay away from other drinks and just stick to water. 2.) Exercise. The big "E", right? It's not that bad, in fact it's quite easy. If you are feeling pain while exercising there is a chance you are doing it wrong. Always exercise by getting your heart rate up, not too high that is what causes pain. Exercise at your own custom pace. 3.) Dancing. Dancing is a good exercise that burns calories pretty fast. Just put some of your music on and dance to it, maybe with friends? 4.) Games/sports. Playing interactive games is always helpful to loose the needed calories. Play with family or friends, it will be so fun you don't even know you are exercising.

    Day two off to a good start!

    I started this morning on a good note! I had my JC pancakes and sausage then decided it was time to get back to an exercise routine! I'm happy to report that I completed 5 miles (3.3 on the treadmill and 1.7 on the eliptical). Not nearly as easy as it used to be. I really need to get some pounds off to get a good pace back! Ate an anytime bar after my workout and either I was really hungry or it tasted good? I.can.do this!

    No flaking

    I feel so good that I didn't flake on my date with the gym this morning! Despite having to get up at 3:30 am, despite a restless night of sleep, and despite my complete lack of will or want, I am so glad I didn't flake on myself. I forgot how amazing it feels to work out first thing in the morning because it sets the tone for the rest of the day. Now post-shower and eating the new ranchero breakfast, I can start my day less stressed and satisfied in knowing that I took those extra steps today to make my life and body better. God bless and happy Friday!

    I Need To Put Up Or Shut Up...

    So, this past weigh in I was a bit disappointed with my result. It was my own fault. I had hoped for more and did not get it. But there was a silver lining. I felt the positive outcome was this part: "It is all up to me how next week turns out. If I am not happy with the loss from this week, I need to change something that I did or did not do. There is no one to take the responsibility for how I feel at weigh in except me. I own my actions. I own my results." Since I rather don't like the taste of crow I hopped up on my treadmill yesterday for the first time in a long time. Forty minutes, and quite a bit of sweat later, I turned off "The Matrix" and went to take a shower. I was proud that I had upped the ante by using an incline of 7 during the faster 30 min portion whereas I used to only use an incline of 1 or 2. Now to be fair to those who work REALLY hard, my definition of "fast" is not truly fast to most. I do a speed of 2.5mph right now. My right side is significantly weaker than my left (gotta love the effects of MS) so I am always playing a game of catch up with that side. Maybe someday I will be able to go at a decent pace...but that's a task for another day. But anyway you look at it, I challenged myself. I broke a sweat. I got off the couch. Today's task? Today is a 45 min group lesson in Cha Cha and Tango. Friday? 2 hour Halloween social ballroom dance. What do YOU have planned for physical activity? Do something fun!
