An absolutely blissful restorative yoga session, 60 mins. I took note of the exercises to try to do them at home on my own.

I ate about 2,890 calories yesterday, and I lost weight. I don't know if I should be concerned or not. I threw up a lot though. My stomach is fairly calm today and I've only had 430 calories so far out of my 1240.

I've taken short walks (about 7 minutes) each of the last 2 days, and I'm planning to do the same today. I know that doesn't sound like a lot, but I've lived a very sedentary existence for the past couple of years and so I am disturbingly out of shape. So my goal is to do this 7 min. walk every day for a week then up it a bit to around 10 min. I'm planning to check in on how I'm doing both for accountability and to track my progress. My main goal is to be able to walk first, to one of my job sites, and then to another of my job sites that's a little farther away.

There is a YouTube channel that has the trainerís mother working out along with her. The routines are meant for seniors and/or beginners. I fit both categories. Not only am I out of condition, but Iím close enough to being their definition of ďsenior.Ē If I canít do the exercises the daughterís way, I can certainly do them the motherís way.

I am finding that the best workouts for me are the ones I can completeóbut barely. There has to be a challenge in order to get any benefit.

I walked a lot today, albeit at a slow pace. Part of that walking was done when wearing a backpack or a weighted vest. I also climbed stairs today.

Went to Orangetheory for the first time since spraining my ankle 2+ weeks ago. The ankle is almost fine now. I went for the treadmill only class but did not push myself, in part because of the healing ankle and in part because I was having a low grade migraine. The migraine actually improved due to HIITs. It was quite amazing.

I forgot my HR monitor and do not know my HR stats from this workout, but based on RPE and getting sweaty and flushed in the face, I worked hard enough.

Next class is on Friday and I will be sure to take my HR monitor with me.

The GOLO isn't working. It's been about a month, and I am back and forth fighting with the same two pounds. Just up two pounds, down two pounds, back and forth for a whole month. This feels so impossible. I can't take a lot of the GOLO because of how drastically it lowers your blood sugar - after taking one pill with a meal I am literally passed out for an hour - you just can't live this way, especially if you're diabetic. My doctor had warned against this and I didn't listen. Lesson learned.

My gym partner has been flaking the past couple of weeks. Just cancelling on me, etc. Starting to get sick of it, so I really have to look into trying to push myself to go on my own. I miss dancing so much; I really need to start trying to move my body slowly in a way where I can work up a sweat. There are some classes I can take at the YMCA, but they are kind of advanced. I lasted 20 minutes at Line Dancing last time I tried.

Anyway, rethinking my strategy. Counting calories doesn't work either because again, the scale just hasn't moved at all even though I have been working really hard at it for a while now. The only way to lose the weight is to really sweat it off - or just eat a lot of protein. I will figure out a way. Will keep posting for accountability as I navigate through this.

I've had 1,350 calories, 182 carbs, and 42 grams of protein today. My stomach is all over the place. I've only thrown up a couple times though.

Had a really good workout at Orangetheory fitness. Although I accumulated only 10 and not the recommended minimum 12 splat points, I felt great subjectively.

First, 14 mins of rowing. About 1800 meters.

Then, floor exercises for strength.

Then, treadmill and that is where I got my 10 spat oiubts.

Finally, a couple of stretches.

14 blue mins
27 green mins
10 orange mins

119 avg hr
146 peak hr

324 calories

My stomach majorly calmed down today. I think my stomach med I've been on since March might have been the issue. My Golo came today and I took the first one with lunch about half an hour ago. Not much to report. My stomach doesn't hurt though. I'm a bit chilled out and I don't know if its in my head or from low blood sugar. But my vomiting has stopped at least for today.

I've had 959 calories, 172 carbs, and 31 grams of protein so far.

I'll have to figure out some more stuff.

My blood sugar is 117. So its normal.

3 hours later and I feel like I drank a gallon of chocolate milk. I'm defiently not hungry.

My thighs were sore this morning from Orangetheory strength training part yesterday and personal training on Thursday evening. They are better now.

I have not exercised today but I wore my 12 lb weighted vest when doing chores such as laundry and cooking.

I have work to do now but will try to fit in a rower session this evening at the little gym of our apartment complex.

Question to those who are exercising regularly please.

How do you motivate yourself?

I used to exercise most days, run, swim, yoga and this year I lost all motivation (not just for exercise unfortunately but many things).

Last night I cleared out my pantry of all my chips and crackers and cookies and stuff. I found quite a few cans of beans, cans of vegetables, a lot of boxes of oatmeal, some, rice, tuna, and nuts underneath all the crap I had collected. I just put the stuff in my closet. I didn't throw it out.

Today I haven't been too hungry. I've been taking the Golo. I got some cans and pouches of salmon and some dark chocolate and a jug of unsweetened iced tea from Walmart.

With dinner I'm at 1250 calories, 129 carbs, and 85 grams of protein.

I'm kind of not in the mood for dinner but my therapist will have a ***** fit if I start heading back into restriction especially if I'm taking a diet pill now.
