Camera dead, but I still lost.

It's not all the way dead, just can't remember where I put the battery charger.  But I managed a 1.4 loss- GO ME!!

I feel no guilt that tonight I am having chocolate for dinner.  I need it, it's been a day and I will be happy to eat it.  Because Saturday night I made the same thing and got NONE of it.  Church talent show, I made sweets for my talent.  Tonight, I will finally get to try it--- and it's not even a huge amount of calories.  It's win- win!

Weekly Goals

My weekly goal is to exercise, at least 3 times this week.  My "in my head" goal is to make it to the pool twice, but my heart will be happy with any exercise three times.

Caro- thanks for the inspiration, I'm seriously lacking in good thought sright now.

Meeting the scale, again.

Ignore my toes- I planned on painting last night, and instead I fell asleep.  This morning my old friend made a reappearance.  I've not pictured it in awhile, so here we go.   259.2.  A gain, too close to a number I don't want to be again, and too far from a number I was so excited to see earlier this year.

Today I'll start my plan.  No soda, supplements, weight & cardio, and being better at being healthy.  My goal is to eat most of the time from something with no box around it.  Fresh, canned (fruits, hate canned veggies) and frozen.

I've got my nifty exercise journal I found on clearance at B&N, and I pinned a load of things to help out also.

I will not get in a habit of weighing every day again. I became too stressed and obsessed.  But I will weigh in, officially, twice a week.  Monday and Thursday.

Taming HBP.

My BP is getting out of hand.  It actually was up high enough, when I couldn't get into my doc (we're playing with med's) they called back and told me to go to the ER.  I was so ticked, but understood, but still felt foolish.  Better safe than sorry, and all they did was give me another dose and had me increase it until I saw her later in the week.  I could have done that at home!

So anyhow, long story short, we're still playing, and I'm up one my one, and they added a second.  Then increased the dose to that.  Happy news is that my levels are amazing (122/66 has been my best.  130/74 is my new normal--excluding when I freak out over something) and my next appt (Wednesday) should have no increase of meds.  Bad news?  I HATE TAKING MEDS.  So, I did what I do-- I researched.  I found a book, and I like it.  I marked it up with post it's and plan on asking my doctor about it.  I've stopped taking my supplements since the med play, just because, but they are on a list to ask her about.  And I will see what she thinks, and also to see that if I can do the 8 weeks and possibly get out from the meds.

So I'm curious-- anyone out there have family history of HBP and been able to control it and get off med's??  If so- share info, books, etc?
