    Talking Long Row to Hoe: Treasure's Log

    I'm not really sure where to start this, so I'll start by introducing myself. My name is Treasure. I am a 34 y/o homeschooling mother of 4 and an herbalist, midwife, student, and a former long distance swimmer, diver, and triathlete. I have suffered many neck, back and pelvis injuries and have recently been diagnosed with RR MS (Relapsing/Remitting). After years of incompetent medical care, I have fired my doctors and have taken over my own medical care. I am going back to what I know worked after my early back injuries for keeping my body as healthy and whole as possible: training.

    At this point in my journey, I have already lost nearly 15lbs. I began this journey just before Thanksgiving after two years of being nearly completely bedridden/confined to bed. I know I have a long journey, and I hope all of you will help me as I take each step down this road. Later, after my diet and training are on solid footing, I will likely be adding peptides to my plan, but for now this is just plain old diet and exercise. I began logging my foods back on December 12th and between then and January 12th lost 12.5 of the ~15 I've lost so far.

    Twitz has helped me come up with a diet, which is found in my other thread here. I will be starting that diet on the 16th since I go grocery shopping on the 15th. During the intervening time, I'll be eating at roughly maintenance levels.

    My weight training program is still being drafted, but my cardio plan is fairly well in place. For cardio, I will be alternating days of PACE cardio with endurance training. My cardio is split into two sessions a day with 1/2 of it in the morning and the other 1/2 in the evening (before supper). On days I feel good enough, I'm hoping to sprinkle extra little bits of exercise throughout my day. After each cardio session, I spend 10+ minutes on my inversion table to stretch my back and pelvis back out.

    My next several posts to this thread will be to post what food logs I have from the previous ~6wks. When I began this log, I was working hard to remember to eat more than once a day, understandably, my calorie intake was shite. My focus since then has been to get my calorie intake UP, and improve the quality of food I was eating. You will get to see (a lot quicker than I did) how my diet quickly morphed. Any suggestions for improvements based on what I post here and what I posted in my diet thread are more than welcome.

    Now, for my starting stats as of 11/14/12:
    Weight: 254.8
    BF: 50+%
    height: 5'5 (or thereabouts)
    age: 33

    Current stats:
    Weight: 240
    BF: ~50%
    age: 34

    My goals:
    1) Lose fat/weight (goal weight ~115lbs)
    2) Regain muscle function and flexibility
    3) Build lean muscle
    4) Regain/build endurance
    5) Return to competing.

    Up until this point, I had been tracking my meals in like 3 or 4 places, which had started making it a major headache, and so it got spotty. So while I kept logging, I started getting really sloppy about remembering to enter it into my electronic tracker that calculates all my calories and such.

    My inflammation levels are starting to drop, though I am needing my pain meds more. I'm back on a muscle relaxer/anti-spasmodic and tramadol. I did a 15min/mile walk this morning. My hair fall has stopped, and the visible changes are finally starting. My middle daughter (who has no brain/mouth censor) told me this morning right after my walk, "Wow, Mama! You're not as big as you were!"

    I started my twice a days yesterday. Now, just to build momentum and keep it up. I'm down from a 21minute mile to a 15minute mile in 10days time. My morning walks are now between 20 and 30 minutes depending on how I'm feeling with a second 15-20 minute walk in the evening. Hopefully by the end of Feb, I'll be up to an hour each.

    And that brings us to the end of the old diet information. I don't have anything tracked for the last few days. I've been working on trying to find a way to streamline my logging. Any suggestions, anyone?

    This week has been a break. I've taken the week off, because the diet plan we wrote is a bit of a deviation from what I had been doing. I'm taking advantage of this time to eat all the things I love that are "healthy" but aren't on my new diet. I go grocery shopping the 16th, and then the 17th I crack down and get serious about training again. I'm not tracking what I'm eating right now other than to write down what time I ate.

    My exercise plan is still in the works. I know my goals for cardio and how I want to do that, but lifting is still being worked out. The person helping me out with the plan has (I think) had to restart b/c equipment I was given for my birthday hasn't shown up yet. (It's all on back order.)

    Right now, since my mobility is still somewhat limited due to chronic pain and other issues, my MAIN focus is food. Since that's the easiest place to fix things or royally fark them up, I figure that's the best place to focus the most right now. As the weight comes down, and I keep my diet clean, I've noticed my mobility does improve. But right now my weight is enough of a stress it creates other issues for me when I do too much.

    I know this is a long, long, long journey ahead of me. But, I will just keep putting on foot in front of the other, no matter how slowly I have to do it.

    Thanks for checking on me, GGR.

    -Treasure.

    I know this is a long, long, long journey ahead of me. But, I will just keep putting on foot in front of the other, no matter how slowly I have to do it.

    Thanks for checking on me, GGR.

    -Treasure.
    Well I plan on being here when u finish ur journey!

    Exclamation

    Thanks again, GGR. Tomorrow is back on plan and full turtle-speed ahead .

    My new schedule looks like this:
    04:15 Alarm Clock
    04:30-05:30 1 Hr. Fasted Cardio (Right now I'm not able to do that much but that's the aim and what the schedule has blocked out)
    07:30 Meal 1: Protein and Carb
    09:30 Meal 2: Protein Shake
    12:00 Meal 3: Protein and Fat
    14:00 Meal 4: Carbs and Protein (Pre Workout)
    16:00-17:00 Work out
    18:00-19:00 Meal 5: Protein and Fiberous Veggies
    19:30-20:30 Evening Walk (This is more about a chance to decompress and de-stress than exercise, but it will still be about getting in a decent workout.)

    My cardio is going to be a switch up between PACE and endurance training. I will later be adding in things like Zumba, etc. My workout will be a lifting workout alternated with a barre workout. The evening walk will likely be simply a walk/jog/run as I progress through my recovery and weight loss. I'm still looking for something to add in for increasing flexibility, but haven't found anything yet. I've got some yoga DVDs but despite being labeled as a beginner's video they makers assume a very deep knowledge of yoga, it's positions, and it's methods. So I'm open to suggestions on this one, any ideas?

    I'm also still doing two sessions a day on my inversion table of 10-15 minutes each (more if my pain requires it or my schedule allows it).


    (BTW, Sorry, GGR for not responding sooner.)

    I think carbs for breakfast is gonna have to go, I was so hungry I was clock watching. Other than that I was too wound up keeping the kids wrangled during our severe weather yesterday that I don't know that I noticed much else. The Spinning felt good now that Kit changed out my seat and it's now one that doesn't put pressure right on my SI joint. I also cut caffeine back out, so I'm feeling tired again, but I know that'll go away as I get my diet tuned back in.

    The tornadoes touched down as close as three blocks from me, but no major news making destruction in my immediate area. The sirens were going off all night, so sleep was intermittent at best, but we came through okay. We had bedded the kiddos down in the safe zone in our house and Kit and I slept not too far from there with the two littlest ones with us.

    B4 you cut out the breakfast carbs completely consider lowering the amount first.

    I had thought about that, Girly, but if I cut the carbs down anymore we're talking only a table spoon or two of true carbs. I include veggies in all my breakfasts, but for some reason carbs in the AM just makes me hungry all day. Prior to Twitz settin' me up, I didn't usually combine carbs and protein at breakfast it was always one or the other so I'm giving it a shot. But I'm an Endo and I'm very sensitive to carb timing, or at least I have been in the past. Historically, my main carb intake has been in the form of coffee additives, and those don't seem to bother me, but we shall see.

    Anyway, today I missed my morning workout b/c of lack of sleep (sorry, I'm not even gonna try it on only 2 hours sleep). But the rest of the day went well:

    Meal 1:
    6egg whites
    4oz BSCB
    1c Spinach
    1c Onions and bell peppers
    2.5oz Mushrooms
    1/4c Oatmeal
    Totals: 351 calories, 55g Protein, 25g Carbs, 4g Fat

    Meal 2:
    1c Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
    35gm Muscle Milk
    Totals: 190 Calories, 17g Protein, 11g Carbs, 10g Fat

    Meal 3:
    16oz Spinach
    4.8oz Salmon
    1/2Tbsp Fish oil
    1/2Tbsp Olive oil
    Totals: 321 calories, 33g Protein, 24g Carbs, 14g Fat

    Meal 4:
    Naptime

    Meal 5:
    2ozs Fresh spinach
    6ozs BSCB
    1/4c Fat Free Refried Beans
    1/2c Brown Rice
    2ozs Avocado
    2Tbsp Salsa
    Totals: 460 calories, 44g Protein, 41g Carbs, 14g Fat
    (Twitz, you have my permission to smack me stupider. I know this is off plan, and I farked up. I was trying to fill in holes from missing my 4th meal two days running.)

    7:30pm Spinning

    Daily totals: 1287calories, 149g Protein, 94g Carbs, 41g Fat or 46/29/28 Hmmm... Can't say I'm happy with this yet. There's always tomorrow.

    Where are you getting 57g protein from for this meal? I'm getting roughly 30g. Large egg is about 7g, whites are about 4g each. I just want to make sure you're not over (or under) shooting your macros.

    My BSCB (Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast) has 23g, the egg whites total 24g, the additional whole egg has 6g, and the mushrooms have 2g. There's a gram each in the avocado and salsa.
