Diet/Exercise Log 2 [Lisa and Ian Only]

They are snugger than when I purchased them, however.

This morning I walked Lucas to the Bennetts’ house and this afternoon I’ll walk back to pick him up again. It’s not much exercise, but it’s what I can manage today. I have work stuff to do and I shouldn’t be writing here right now. Yesterday in the early evening I planted 5 plants, and burned a few calories that way.

The Truth About Easter Food
+ avoided all breads, rolls, chips, cookies, candies, and cakes
+ ate lots of ham and salad and eggs
– ate some canteloup on Saturday and some berries on Saturday and Sunday
– ate 3 cream cheese and cherry tarts on Sunday. (I saved my carbs for those tarts, made by the lovely Tart Lady, Betty Broughton.)
– ate a small spoonful of baked beans – with sugar in them

    Rawk! Go lady go! I like hearing that you are just doing what you can; very often I get into this feeling awful because I can’t do it all thing, I don’t know… it’s all in the willingness, I suspect. And this weekend was a bear. Ugh.

    I also have a weight/eating/gym filter, and I don’t know how you feel about this, but let me know if you would like to be added. I’m kind of embarrassed to talk about that stuff with the whole world, you know the deal (well duh, I’m on a filter, I must be a rocket scientist).

    Love you!!!

    Yeah, I just started this “log” idea and my first post was private. I want the encouragement of others, but not the … fixing. I dunno. I guess I need a space where I can feel vulnerable without risking being wounded. I think I can share that type of stuff with you.

    Thank you for the invitation to be in your filter. I would like that. Thank you for the trust. Like I have said before, your working out so diligently has inspired me.

    I think it would be good to be in a community of people who think of themselves as works in progress. I’m not sure who exactly I am afraid of with regard to that stuff, but … whatever.

    I’m really trying to build myself up instead of tearing myself down all the time. If you care to give support to a needy friend like me, I’ll totally, and gratefully, take it.

    Wow, so many things in there. I’ve been uncomfortable lately with the idea of exposing myself on LJ, maybe it’s that fixing factor. And it gets me thinking how community, when it works well, has a restorative sense. Also how I hurry to tear myself down when I don’t meet the expectations I have in my head for myself…

    Well. I may not always do it perfectly, or say the right things at the right moments, but I do love having the opportunity to be there for you whenever I can.

    Sending more love. Consider yourself added to the filter! Onward! xo

    🙂 You say the right things more often than not.

    P.S. I got to go to the gym today after all. Had to drop something off there for an instructor I interviewed. When I told Lucas what we had to do, he wanted to go to the play center. I was surprised because he had been away from me all day, but he wanted to go, so we went. I got in an hour-long workout: 42 mins treadmill (avg hr 160 or so; 246 calories; jogged 1 3/4 miles, walked 3/4 miles) and rode the elliptical machine for another 8 minutes and burned another 56 calories. Also lifted some weights (quads and chest presses). So, yay me!
