Balancing Body, Mind, Spirit, and Emotions

I have lost 50 pounds. I have gained back 35. Now I see why.

I lost the weight through clean eating, cardio, and weight training. I also had an inner voice telling me how unacceptable I was and how I would be acceptable when I reached goal weight.

I don't like the way I look right now, but I must practice telling myself that the real me (the essence of who I am) is completely lovable just as I am.

I will reach and maintain my body goals.
I am worth it.

My Goals:
Daily:
Track food.
Track water.
Track exercise.
Meditate.
Write in journal.

2016:
Participate in an Aquabike race, which is 1.2 miles swimming and 56 miles cycling.

My Program:
Weight training 2x/week
Cardio 5x/week

Eating is the hardest part for me. I haven't decided on my parameters yet.

Personal Information:
I am highly tempted to try to psych myself up for the weight-loss thing by reading success stories, looking at pictures of fitness models I want to look like, and fantasizing about what my life will be like when I finally get to 18% body fat.

Been there, done that, and gained the weight back.

I am hoping to embark on the journey this time for health and sanity, not to earn lovability.


Other Information:
I enjoy rearranging the contents of my 475-square-foot apartment and thinking about how to make it into a spiritual sanctuary with a Zen influence. It remains a cluttered, very un-Zen mess. Sure is cozy, regardless.

Thanks for the dumbbell goodie! My oncologist has actually told me to do strength training three times a week....so dumbbells are my friend.

Thanks for the goodie and commenting on my blog! You keep pushing. I had several months of rough spots after Christmas. You hang in there. Don't give up. Look at where you are at now and how far you have come. How much better you are now than this time last year, right?

Take it slow and you will get that spark back.

Have a good Tuesday!

Maggie, Hang in there! We have all fallen off the wagon. You will get your "spark" back! I read your blog and you have a great plan in place. Get your mind back on track and your body will follow.

You may have to talk to yourself! I tell myself that I am in charge of what I eat or when I exercise. No one else will do it for me! I might be going crazy, but it seems to work. LOL!

Forget the past and move forward, Lee Ann emoticon
