All Aboard!!!

Think I’m back on track.  I did my hour of jogging in the pool and then decided I should do at least another ten laps as penance.  I ate a huge salad for lunch and dinner and decided to go with salad shrimp as a protein.  I marinated them in a teeny bit of olive oil, lime juice, cilantro, splenda, salt, pepper and crushed red peppers but they still seemed to lacking.  I kept wishing I had a nice grilled chicken breast instead of shrimp but I ate it anyway.  My salad had lots of romaine, water chestnuts, red peppers, a few almond slivers, a bit of shredded asiago, mandarin orange slices, and a teeny bit of chow mein noodles to top it off.  I used Paul Newman’s lite ginger sesame dressing.  Even though it sounds pretty good, I found it to be somewhat lacking in the satisfaction category.

I weighed in this morning and I’m at 207.  Dammit.  Gained three pounds from my former low but it’ll come off.  Especially since I did an extra 20 laps today as continued penance.

Mom is supposed to finally go home this Friday and she’s counting on me to come and stay with her for a few days.  I don’t know what I’m going to do about exercising.  I can’t walk and I can’t jog without the pool.  She doesn’t have a treadmill or anything like that.  Maybe I can find a DVD to take.  Guess I could take my bicycle too.  I hate to lose my momentum again.

As far as cooking for mom, I’m a pretty decent cook and I’ll fix things that work for me.  She shouldn’t feel deprived.  I’ll make sure the meals I prepare are healthy and satisfying for her.

And now, I have to run.  DH has finally given up on fixing my car (something I’ve never seen him do before) and I have to meet him at the repair shop to drop off my car.  He’s been fooling with it for almost a month and it still isn’t running right.

Keep the momentum going. I know they’re not very fun but the walking DVD’s could maybe serve in a pinch (I think they’re called walk away the pounds). I was surprised when I did it once that even though it wasn’t a tough workout while I was doing it my calves were screaming the next day.

You can do it! You’re looking for what will work, so you certainly have the motivation. Even if you just turn on some music and dance around, you’ll get your heart pumping.
