Still here!

Post by KellieD on Sun Dec 10, 2017 5:58 pm

Honeybuns aka KellieD here!
Thanks to Tomi for alerting me about MDA dropping the forums I found my way here. I have been MIA for a while mainly due to discouragement. A couple of years ago I put twenty pounds back on and have been unable to shake it loose. While I would love to give full menopause all of the blame my eating habits are not what they once were. Last year's broken ankle and tendon surgery didn't help matters any. I am back to 99% of where I had been muscle and stamina wise and have resumed lengthy RPR's with Moose.
I am starting to keep an exercise accountability journal and will jot down what I do each day. Here it is day three and I have done nothing which is going to cause me to put on my tennies and go jump rope or do squats or something.
So glad to see so many familiar names here. I have missed you all.

So glad to see you here! Hope Tomi will drop by also - so good to see the tribe reforming.

I've done the same thing - 20 lbs has crept on and just isn't budging. Grrrrrrr.

Tomi is definitely going to be making an appearance soon.
I am blaming menopause. Not shortbread, not eggnog. Menopause.

I keep gaining and loosing the same 20. I can't get lower than a certain point. I track my activity. I'm going to have to start a food diary next.

Hi Kellie. I am glad you made the transition over here. I always loved hearing about your romps with the doggies.

When I saw Tomi I thought of you but realized I had not seen input from you in AGES. Glad you are back.

I, too, have 10-15 lbs I'd like to lose but fail to stick with the diet I know that works. How silly of me. I start and stumble, start and stumble.

Hi Honeybuns/Kellie!

Glad that  the ankle is healing and activity is resuming.  I've sprained mine recently and know somewhat of the annoyances and imitations. Glad we get to read about your RPR adventures, once again.

Is there any way to attach pictures?

I have started an exercise journal. Each day I will jot down what I did for exercise that day. So far Moose and I are getting into the woods every other day. On the off days I look at the journal and realize that I have to do SOMETHING so I pick up the dumbbells just so I can honestly say I did something. So far it is working at keeping me accountable!

Yesterday's RPR was of short duration but very high intensity. We traversed steep ravines in a clearcut. That means carefully negotiating our way over tons on downed branches, trees, etc. it would be hard enough on the flat but add in the degree of slope and it becomes a killer workout. I need to pay more attention to where Moose is going. He is becoming very adept at choosing the best route while I am struggling up the hillside. Next time I follow him.
Thank goodness Christmas is almost here. No more goodies in the house after this!

I take my DGDog for walks normally M-->Th. She loves running loose and I love letting her. No way I'd follow her though. She is Too Fast for me. haha

Glad you are out and about again. And here.

KellieD: On the posting pictures front, give me a day or two to finish up a sticky post in the "How do you do this" group. I'm trying to put together some straightforward how to things that consolidate down posts from all over into one spot for people to look at. Currently working on posting pictures and links, but have a lot of distractions right now.

Yep, this! Aside from eVersions of a journal, we have a whiteboard on the wall where we record daily weight and activities and track some specific items we want/need to work on (core strength workouts, etc.). Having a day with nothing is just not good so it gets me moving.

And yes, follow the dog, they know what to do and where to go.

I agree with M2M. Recording it helps you to really see where you are

I wish I could follow my DGDog but she goes into the bushes often.
