August 2009 Mile Challenge



Recommended Posts

I am happy to report that I finished this month with 85.4 miles ran. Woot!Woot! It feels soooo good:-). Sounds like everyone else done just as good. I also increased my Protein for the past week to see if I could boost my loss but however for some reason, today all I could think of was something to eat. I HATE days like this. Tomorrow will be better....Congratulation to everyone who took the challege this month. Thumbs up!!

I will add more Protein to my diet and see if I am just as successful. My doctor pushes protein first at every meal. I'm in the habit of eating carbs first then protein. Old habits are hard to break. From now on my plate will have protein only for a while.

What Protein Drinks have you tried? I've tried several, but find it hard to stick to.

I like the slimfast low carb vanilla cream. I like the taste, it is 4 carbs, and has 20 protein grams. The calorie count per can is 180 calories. Some people like to find a lower calorie Protein Drink. But then you need to find one that you can tolerate the taste.

After two days of not walking ...this morning was so beautiful the allure of the road won out....I stretched the Achillee's heel and off I went. I did ease up a little on the speed and just enjoyed the walk...used my arms to speed up the ole heart rate.... So 3.1 miles can be added to my total. It felt tight but as I continued it loosened up some. Later this afternoon it was hurting again, so the dr. appointment will be kept.

If my adding is right here are my month's miles.

Goal 50 miles

Walked 53.6 miles Yea!!!!

Biked 17.95 miles

Ellipitical 4.0 miles

Swam 9 1/2 hours

Wow! who is this crazy woman! Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought I could do this!

Thanks to all that are wishing me a speedy recovery.

I'm just home from the gym and finished up 100 miles for the month. Whew. It was a good effort that was ONLY accomplished by the encouragement of my online buddies here in this challenge.

Thank you for spurring me on!:biggrin:

Well I made my goal but as I sat around trying to find something on T.V. to watch....and there isn't anything, I thought well thats why I pay for a membership to a gym that is open 24/7....so I'm off to the gym, maybe I will get a little over goal! I'm a night owl anyway so it can't hurt. I will post miles later tonight.

Wow! Congrats to everyone....Everyone feeling healthier? I know I am.

Dr. visit...amazing thing happened...My blood pressure is down from last visit 148/90 to a whopping 124/76. Whoo hoo! With my weight lost my dr. jumped up from looking at my records and had me get up and give her a high five! This is my new General Practioner that my lapband surgeon recommended. She is awesome! She acknowledge the fact I am over 100 lbs lost and then she asked me how I was feeling about that. She takes time to listen. Then she came down to business of my foot...She gave me some anti-flammatory cream to use on the foot because it is swollen.(she is aware of the lapband), then gave me a script for an exray...I'll know results probably Wednesday (because of the holiday. Told me to tape it and showed me where and gave me the okay to continue walking. She is suspecting a bone spur! The exrays will confirm and she will let me know what we will do from there.

Well one month down(August) and the rest of our lives to go but one month at a time on to September Mile Challenge. Off and walking!! Hope to see everyone there.

Deb thats wonderful to hear that your blood pressure has dropped so much. Are you on medication? If you are, did your doctor talk to you about taking la lower dosage or none at all? I have been on HBP meds for nearly 2 years. I would love to lose enough weight so that I no longer rely on the meds to control my BP.

I hope all goes well with the healing of your foot.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
