Quick Update

So yesterday, I finally did some pilates. And guess what? My shoulder held up and is a bit less sore today than yesterday! Couldn't be from the rice krispy sounds it made while doing pilates now, could it? Nah!! Can't be!

Anyways, I decided to give my shoulder a day of rest today. Don't want to jinx it. I'll do pilates again tomorrow and maybe in a week I can add back in some light weights for strength training. However, I don't think push ups are in the immediate future.

I'm still walking the vineyards. I admit I've been a little lazier this week and drove Dude to the bus or from the bus on occasion. But, I've walked most every day this past week. And, I've taken to feeding Maddie in the barn now that the rains and mud have come. That means I have to walk an extra 50 yards from the garage, where we store the hay to the barn, which is behind the house. It's a bit extra exercise and it keeps Maddie from wasting hay.

Halloween candy got the better of me on the 2nd. I had been content to just sniff it until then. I only had a couple pieces though. I wasn't all bad. Actually, I think I gave in because instead of thinking that I don't want any, I began to phrase it as "I can't have any". Huh. I just realized that as I typed this.

The constant headache of last week is also gone. While it was around, I didn't want to eat breakfast or lunch and fell into snacking attacks in the late afternoon. Now that the headaches are gone, I'm back to eating my normal breakfast of oatmeal with a handful of blueberries or a single serving of cereal and milk. I really prefer the oatmeal and blueberries. Anyways, I noticed that I feel better and don't have the desire to binge if I eat a decent breakfast in the morning.

Ok, that's my update! Anyone have any thoughts on how they plan to tackle eating with the holidays coming up?

Glad to hear your shoulder is somewhat better, they tend to be a tricky spot to heal. It may just always give you some minor trouble. (silly me I can't recall what started your trouble!) Mine still clicks from time to time and the right one is the worst. I go to the chiropractor every week or two to get it adjusted (along with my hips and multiple spots on my back)
I think I tend to sabotage myself when I use the "I can't have" instead of the "I don't want" as well. Like you its not something I've really put much thought into before.
I wasn't worried about Halloween candy, we didn't have any in the house. Yes that is didn't not don't. My bff shared a huge bag of her leftover candy with me.
Good thing they are the treat sized chocolate bars. I can have one and ease my sweet tooth without sacrificing my conscience :)

Excellent news on the shoulder!! Heres hoping it stays strong for you.

Holiday eating... oh dear... I havent a clue. Maybe all the work we have been putting into things now will pay off, and we simply wont be able to eat as much? Maybe we'll be happy with a small sampling, content with the taste?

My plan is to eat all the types of food I'd like, but not to eat as MUCH of it as I have in the past. And make sure to keep moving and going, jumping and riding, through the season.

Fingers crossed for ALL of us!!

Good to hear you are getting out! This time of year it is so tempting to huddle away inside.

I have trouble during the holidays but usually try to decide before an event if I'm going to go with the have NONE or have only a FEW method! lol... usually if I go with none I end up having one or two vs when I go with having few I end up having more... so good luck with that:)
