Whats up with Ms Healthy.

I feel that I should share some of my achievements and failures of the past month.

Health and Body: I have been feeling fairly crummy lately.  The shoulder seems to be healing very slowly.  I am currently attending physio 3 times a week.  I have specific exercised to increase the range of motion and hopefully strengthen my shoulder.  I have also noticed that I have been drinking pop, again.  I realize that was an item I was truly trying to cut out… too much sugar.  That may be why I have been feeling crummy.

Food:  Even thought I have cheated by drinking pop.  (Slaps Hand) The achievements have been great.  I have been eating more fruits and veggies.  I am working to minimize the quantity of processed foods.  I have been trying new recipes.  Also we have been indulging in yummy salads at meals.  Mr. has even embraced the salad!!  I am happy that he is participating in my healthy outlook.

Exercise: I have not been able to get out and exercise with my shoulder.  Dexter and I do go for our walks, and I have been trying to walk farther with him.  There is a local pool which I have been cleared to use. I have temporarily given up on the running as I do not feel that is an exercise I would like to do at this time.  I will continue to strive to achieve that goal to run a 5k.  In July I started at 208lbs and I have lost 8lbs. WoooHooo!! I am now down to 200lbs!!

Work:  With the pain and injury with the shoulder I am leaving my baking position.  I have been hired to work in a call center downtown.  Yes it is a call center although it is full time and its all inbound.  NO OUTBOUND.  I refuse to call and disturb people.  I will be in training for 6 weeks starting on August 16th.

Reading: I have SO many books… Right now I have found my love for reading again.  I have been reading Eat Pray Love. This is a wonderful book!  I would highly suggest that other should read this.  I am looking forward to seeing the movie after I finish the book.

Goals for August:

  1. Get out and go Swim Lengths.  I have included the schedule… To hold me accountable.  I will go 4 times a week (Shoulder permitting)
  2. Lengths
    Monday 8:15 – 9:00pm
    Tuesday 8:15 – 9:00pm
    Wednesday 8:15 – 9:00pm
    Thursday 8:15 – 9:00pm
    Saturday 1:00 – 2:00pm
    Sunday 12:00 – 1:00pm

  3. Eating 3 meals and 2 snacks a day to help regulate my metabolism.  Also it will help keep the body on a schedule with the back to work coming up.
    • Pack lunches!! I do not want to waste money eating unhealthy food at the office.
  4. Read at least 1 book a month and share what I am reading!
  5. Continue to revamp the kitchen and take the processed foods that are REALLY unhealthy out!

    Looking good Hayley! I love how you’re able to really examine and articulate what’s working and what’s not. Self examination is so powerful.
