Getting Fit (Body & Mind)

In order to break this pattern of cyclic existence, I am practicing the dharma while I can. I had a big reality check in early 2011 when I had a severe manic episode with accompanying psychosis and flashbacks that I recently found out caused damage to my brain (the neuropsychologist calls it cognitive dysfunction disorder) that led to a chain of events that changed my entire life as I saw it. At first I saw it as "the end of the world" for me, but with the help of my wonderful doctors and the ...
In order to break this pattern of cyclic existence, I am practicing the dharma while I can. I had a big reality check in early 2011 when I had a severe manic episode with accompanying psychosis and flashbacks that I recently found out caused damage to my brain (the neuropsychologist calls it cognitive dysfunction disorder) that led to a chain of events that changed my entire life as I saw it. At first I saw it as "the end of the world" for me, but with the help of my wonderful doctors and the basic Buddhist notion that love and insight work cooperatively to bring about enlightenment, I have sought out a real and permanent change in lifestyle (and for the first time am seeing myself and everything else as it REALLY is). I am not just looking to lose weight, but also afflictive thought and thought patterns, to become fit, to develop a healthy relationship with food, to sleep well, to deepen my meditative practice, to become a better mother, and a more loving and more intelligent and intuitive person.

SparkPoints: 27,523

Fitness Minutes: 22,007

My Goals:
To be CONSISTENT and MOTIVATED by living POSITIVE! Eating well, exercising, meditating, journaling. To move forward one pound at a time!

My Program:
Tracking all my food, and writing down my exercise goals for the day like they are appointments. I also give myself stickers on my calendar as rewards when I have a successful day!

Personal Information:
I'm from Wisconsin. I was brought into Buddhism as a Rinzai Zen Buddhist but have since transitioned into the Theravada tradition as my own personal views are very traditional. I have a 4-year-old son and I am on disability for Bipolar I disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and anxiety.

Other Information:
I have a four-year-old son whom I ADORE and you will hear me bragging on him a lot. I am getting healthy so I can spend more quality time with him--and keep up with him! I also have an adorable Pomeranian named Deuce. He loves to take long walks. I think he knows I'm trying to get in shape and thinks he's my personal trainer.
