Another new week

Published March 27, 2012 by The Inane and insane Ramblings of Rose

Okay so last week didn’t go as I planned. I weighed in yesterday and only lost a pound so I am down to 283.8which is okay. A loss is still a loss. I did decide that moving forward on the DVD’s wasn’t goign to work. My fitness level just is not high enough yet despite the amount of weight loss i have had. But there is no shame in doing what I have to do to get healthy so I am moving back to discs one and two one Jillian Michaels. Discs 3 and 4 were just way too high impact and I was not able to do them correctly without hurtign myself or havign soem chect paina nd I didn’t want that whole cannoli to start again. So I am going back to the first two discs plus the cardio, and adding some yoga, my exercise bike, and going back to swimming. I am also going to be doing more outdoor activities with Liam such as hiking. I did manage to do everything on my to do list for last week so that’s a big plus. Every step forward is a good step. Everything I do is an “I can” versus and “I tried” which is why it is so important to set attainable goals. even though I couldn’t do the second discs the entire week, I swithced back to the first discs and still got in six days of exercise so that’sa big thing. ic ompleted my vision board. i paid my bills. I ate healthy. I drank plenty of water. I went shopping for groceries. i completed the swaps that i was signed up for. I ordered what I needed to for my other swaps. I even started some new supplements. Just to give me a little push. So these are all good thigns and all good steps towards acheiving my goals. Hopefully this week will bring even better things.


Kale Chips, Oh My!

Published February 17, 2012 by The Inane and insane Ramblings of Rose

Okay, I have discovered my new favorite healthy snack food next to beanitos: kale chips. Specifially mexican spiced Kale chips. They are awesome. They came in my order from today which included mexican spiced kale chips, dijon kale chips, krusts, and thai coconut sugar. All good healthy foods, in moderation of course. Im addition, my day was spent primarily relaxing, catching up on a penpal/swapbot project, and working out on my exercise bike. Nothing too exciting. Especially in this weather. It was snowy and beautiful today but I am not a big fan of driving in the snow. Tommorow on the agenda, I have a morning therapy appointment followed by hopefully a trip to the gym. I also have to go to the post office. And I need to go to the craft shop and pick up a few more bits and pieces for some projects. But at least I got my exercise in. And I ate fairly healthy today too. I had a small bowl of butternut squash soup for brunch, a glucerna shake and a fiber one bar for late afternoon, and chicken and veggie whole wheat pasta for dinner. And for an evenign snack I had some beanitos and a zero calorie lifewater. So that’s abotu it. Still waiting to hear back abotu the echo. But hopefully no news is good news. We’ll have to see!



Today is a new day and trauma release resolution

Published February 3, 2012 by The Inane and insane Ramblings of Rose

Well today I started a new day of healthy living and am gettign back on track after being in the hospital. okay so it’s still no exercise but I did wake up and had a great green smoothie. And I have decided to go back to the gym and start slowly next monday and get bck itno my routine again. Very slowly this time. no three hour workouts. Just easy does it the way I slide into the pool instead of diving in. In the meantime I am spending the next three days resting and recovering. My groin still hurts tremendously fromt he inesertion site from the procedure so I am not able to exercise anyway. Instead I am working on my pen pal letters, eating healthily, resting, and working on my journalling, workbook work, and my trauma recovery resolution. So let me explain. When I was young, i was the vicitim of repeated trauma over several yuears. i don’t need to go into specifics. But it has effected me greatly.  I have decided to go trhough a trauma recovery program that has been discussed by my private therapist and the therapists that I saw when I took part in the acute partial program at Newton Memorial Hospital in September. Basically it involves: completing one more trauma recovery workbook which I am nearly finished with, writing out my story in all it’s truthfullness in a seperate journal, using that journal to do a reality checklst: bascially that entials  detailing my thoughts or actions and then the reality behind them, writing a forgiveness letter to my perpetrator, possibly doing some gestalt therapy in therapy, then burning everything in a release ceremony and hopefully saying goodbye to the truma memeroies and impacts that have plagued me for the last 17 years. I have done everythign else I can do. I have worked hard to try and put my perpetrator in prison on multiple occasions. I have tried to get a face to face resolution with him. I have tried therapy,. None of it has worked. This is my way I want and have designed to lessen the impact this has on my life. This is my way of letting go. I will only burn everything when I am truly ready to let go and all of the work is done.  So that’s it. Since I can’t work on my body, I am working more on my mind.
