Paain is only weakness leaving the body


This is the start of my new venture.  I had planned on only sharing my progress once a week, but I am enjoying documenting my days so I’ll do a daily post of it.

Here’s Monday (A day late I know, but oh well)


Starting weight for the week: 243 (I gained two pounds eating big on the holiday)

Early snack: 3 small dill pickles, 4 Spanish olives and 2 bananas

Beverage: water, no flavor

I know the pickles and olives are high in sodium, but with the activity I’ll be adding, and the fact that I no longer use salt on any food, I don’t think it’ll be too big of a problem.

I try to exercise at home because I don’t have a lot of funds just laying around for me to join gyms.  I walk on the road, I do steps on my stairs, I have a punching bag in my basement, and push-ups and sit-ups can be done anywhere.  Not sure how much it helps, but I also have a few different exercise games on the Wii. 

So far today, all I’ve done is sit here and read and write things.  I have walked to the mailbox and tested out my knife on the cherry wood I brought home.  I’m all ready for my GE to get home and get to working on something.

For dinner/lunch there will be Subway.  I created my own sandwich that is only 277 calories without cheese, and 327 with it, according to the pamphlet Subway hands out.

Turkey, roast beef, green peppers, banana peppers, tomato, black olives, and yellow mustard.  It’s on Italian bread.  I added pepper jack cheese for the extra 50.

I’ll also have a Meatball Marinara, this will be foot long and I’ll save half for after our work out and whatever work we decide to do.

I screwed the pooch sort of.  I only ate half the meatball, which is good because we watched Willy Wonka and I ate some candy with my little one.  Two Cadbury eggs and three Reese’s eggs later and I finished the day at 1837 calories.

No working out or exercising of any kind.

So I get to go to bed hungry and unable to eat any more.

A good Monday though, I came in under my goal and still had a fun night with the family.

Here’s to a Tuesday as successful.

Living with Shadows

I'm a woman in my 40's and finally feeling that I know who I am and why I am, I would like to share the shadows from my life. Having got here fairly intact and along the way found the ability to take a step back and see things more clearly it is my hope that perhaps by blogging I may help others through their own dark places.
