FONDLE'S FFF WEEK 2

Week two of Fondles FFF

Really getting into the swing of things now and able to tick all the boxes off my goals list on a daily basis. 

My scales have been heading in the wrong direction, I feel like smashing the stupid things. It felt like I was really trying with no luck at all so ..........




I emailed Amy who came up with a plan for us.  The winner or was it loser, has to visit the other person. Unfortunately she can't stick to it now, sorry Amy, I'll keep going for the two of us.  I do hope you have a speedy recovery and back  soon on FFF.



Amy suggested we drink a glass of water with lemon juice, go for a 15 minute walk and add some weight exercises into our daily schedule.  Well let me tell you one thing lemon juice is totally blergh, makes my tummy churn. 



I have increased my amount of water I consume each day, so that's a start. As I can't walk due to my back condition I ride my bike for the 15 minutes.



Also I have taken on an extra class at the gym, surprisingly this week it was a whole hour devoted to weights using dumb bells,  I also do them after my ride each morning. 

This week I have..........
 ridden my bike x 6


 water exercise classes x 2


weight class for an hour
 weights every day at home x 6

I have stuck to healthy eating  with the exception of Sundays which I consider my day off.  I did come to a compromise with Bear so he has halved the recipe to only make enough  treats for one meal. Also I'm keeping a daily record of food, exercises and sleep. 

Hope you all had a successful week too.  Looking forward to hopping around blogland to see your posts.




This week has been wonderful, I feel on top of the world.
Good luck for week 3 all my fellow FFF friends.

WHY????

Why did I seem to be going so well, then come crashing down.  I'm so  disappointed with myself,  I was feeling so good after all the exercise and eating well. Woke up yesterday morning (Thursday) with my spine screaming at me.  Still did my exercises though, then we went grocery shopping.  Reached up to a high shelf to grab something when my neck gave a loud crack. Voila!  My back was perfect after that which made me happy.

Come Friday morning, start of a new FFF week with my spine screaming again.  It feels like one step forward two steps back.

So I'll be sitting on the side lines cheering you all on with Amy, for the next two weeks at least.  As besides my spine being mean to me, my sister is coming down to visit next week, with  the following week being my procedure. So there won't be any time for exercising, I will still eat healthily though. I'm just really disappointed that it appears I'm going into a flair.  Talk about bad timing.

Guess you win some you lose some.  I would much prefer to be losing weight than losing the challenge though.

  1. Well Lindy, seems to me if we are both going to be down, I should be at your house so we can suffer together. Somehow "suffering together" makes me think it would be harder on Bear than anyone. We'd get all giggly and he'd have to run around making sure we didn't overdo anything, feed us healthy meals, make sure we took our meds. Hmmm. Works for me! You were off to a great start and so was I. That just means we have a great place to begin again in March. I'm sorry your back is hurting. I'd share my pain killers with you. They are working pretty well. :) Hang in there and enjoy the time with your sister. I'm determined to stay positive, if nothing else. We'll see how the weekend goes.

    1. Thanks Amy, we could have a sookie la la together and then share your meds. I'll bring the wine and snacks. LOL!
      Here's to a better go of it in March. Hope you are able to catch some ZZZZ with that machine on all the time.

  3. Geez louise! Take care of that back and neck and spine. Rest. Heal. Eating healthy is still a good way to lose weight. When i didnt exercise for 4 months i managed to keep my weight constant just by being vigilant with my diet. So dont give up!

  8. Poor thing. I am so sorry to hear about your setback. Perhaps some gentle stretching wouldn't be too hard on you. Proud of your healthy eating and glad that your sweet Bear is there to take care of you.

  9. Lindy,
    Turn that set back into goal setting opportunities. Even though not participating, I am working on no binge sitting. So I need to get up now.

  10. As abby said to me, scales are not always reliable... its a shame we have to rely on them!

    I love that your plan included a real life meetup. And all that exercise; you're doing wonderful. Plus the good eating!

    Oh, and then I'm so sorry to hear about your spine. There are some physical therapy exercises that can help.

  11. Oh, Lindy, what a pain - literally! You needn’t quit the challenge though, you can still do the parts you are able to do and catch up on the rest later.
    Gentle exercises help with my back problem, maybe you could find some designed for your specific condition.
    Lots of sympathy,
