Lifestyle Change: Day Twelve.

5 a.m. workout on the 11th of May.
9:39 p.m. Sorry I haven't written, lately. I am on day twelve of the lifestyle change. I'm down 11 pounds, making me 177, and 1 1/2 inches on my waist depending on the time of day (literally) I look forward to breaking that 33 inch waist plateau because I have very very little memory of ever being smaller than that since early high school.

Day ten was a HARD and long workout which was at least 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Of course, there was the usual napping and eating, lol. I packed for Mema's the next day.

Workout on the 10th of May.
Day eleven I did an early morning cardio workout for about an hour and a half or more, slept, then came to mema's and helped out. I learned she has the early onset of Alzheimers which is saddening because I've heard all too many times where that illness leads. I'm told someone will inevitably have to move in to take care of them both.

Papa's brother Roy and Grandpa helped out during the day.

Dustin came to help out last night, after Grandpa left. He slept here and left in the morning. Speaking of morning, I was up until maybe 3 a.m. or so watching My 600 Pound Life: Where Are They Now and doing fitness on commercials. Then went to bed and got up to find Dustin gone this morning.

This morning, pre-work out. :D
This brings us to day twelve. I made Papa breakfast, ate my own, fetched the neighbor down the street for home, fed and walked the dog, and washed the dishes. I asked Grandpa for permission to go for a walk, which he granted. I walked all the way up to the Wal-Mart and looked at a couple of five pound weights I liked, then came home. Papa was mad at me for going out alone though, especially when he needed me here.

So! Unfortunately, I will have to give up my beloved walks for the next couple weeks, give or take. I will try to incorporate more of other exercises on my own time, though I do feel this will slow my progress. I'll have to be patient anyway as this is not some quick diet, but a lifestyle change. I just need to mind my eating as well. At the same time, I have to be here for him and that is more important.

For the life of me, I don't know what is up with my netbook today, which was freezing all over the place and I almost LOST this entry before I saved it in Wordpad. :D Praise the Lord! It's still morning and there is a long day ahead after all. It, since the time of all the freezing and typing, is now 10:05 a.m. Bye homies!

11:41 a.m. Currently just chilling, helping out Papa when needed and watching Cable TV. Caught the end of 'Catch Me If You Can' (love that film!) and watching Clueless.

I went in the bedroom to visit Papa and he wanted to let me know I can touch anything, that he's not contagious and I won't catch a disease. (He's recovering from half paralysis in his body for years now) and he started to cry so I gave him a hug and a kiss. We are all reconciled and happy, of course. ^___^ Missing mema and hope she's doing well. I am worried about her.

12:04 p.m. Helping Papa out. ^___^ I'll say one thing, getting up a lot is good exercise. Jesus rejoices.

12:46 p.m. Papa had me water Mema's flowers and Grandpa helped. I got a bit wet and dirty with the hose lol. Then a relative came by and she's going shopping, Praise Jesus. I can finally put some greens in my system (didn't bring the ones from home because they were getting old by a few days anyway) and other than that, all is well .:) I got a long week ahead and helping out two grandparents soon. Pray I stay on a healthy course in both diet, mind, spirit, and exercise. God give me strength in Jesus name, Amen! God is able!

4:40 p.m. I laid down to take a nap at 2:25 p.m. and tried to get a nap. It was okay, went by quick. Had to get up after an hour or so to help with groceries, then I was hungry. I haven't eaten properly lately. I made a fruit and veggie smoothie which tasted horrible, I don't know what I did wrong. Spinach, berries, and silk soy milk. No kale but I'll live.

I've gained a pound and an inch, mysteriously. I haven't eaten that much and what I did eat wasn't unhealthy enough to explain it. (Nuts and berries and some peanut protien meal bar.) I won't have much time for exercise. Papa is under the constant assumption that I'm bored so he keeps giving me little things to handle (no complaints) It's just a harder time than last time.

I miss home, and it's only been TWO days. I guess it's because there, I walk where and when I want, sleep when I need, eat when I want, and I'm dedicating more time to taking care of my body's needs. I don't mean to sound selfish but I miss home and still have a week to go to commit to helping out. They need the help more than I need to help myself, obviously, but it was a move I 'jumped' into amidst trying to fix myself...and now fixing myself has to slow down. Way down.  Not that I'm giving up. I have to put others first. I shall try. I get the most time to myself at night, obviously. I'm gonna try to go to bed earlier, too.

I have to remember to sweep the porch but I'd rather do it when the porch is clear (Grandpa and Papa are out there right now) and it's getting onto evening hours. There's no reason it can't be handled in the morning, of course.

5:58 p.m. Papa has permitted me to walk and down the street, so that's a nice change. :) I've been chilling out and watching bridal shows and whatnot.

6:28 p.m. Playing online and now getting off my netbook for the night. Looking to go to bed at a normal hour, lol.
