Good old days when I was skinny

Sunday, September 02, 2012

I remember when I was at my skinniest back in early 2009, but one change in life style and it all went to pot. I ate healthier and exercises almost an hour or more a day, lots of cardio.
It is hard to get back to a routine once yu've been away from it. I feel the fat and see the extra inches. Ugh!
I just can't get my motivation back. I do what I can on challenges, but not a lot of extra. Clothes fit tight, although I am fitting into my favorite shorts.
Now with certain injuries I can't do arm exercises like I used to.

I think I did a blog on this before...gee, not much better now am I and with a bad memory. haha

    Oh sweetie I so know where your coming from. But you can only do your best and if it is not what it use to be then that is just the way it is for now. Don't beat yourself up though or it will only get worse. Just take it one day at a time, one exercise at a time and eventually you will see your motivation increase with your health.

We have all been there and done that and so we cannot do it right now but believe in yourself Courti and you will eventually get back to where you were and want to be.

I believe in you.

    I am quite sure you have lots of company on the lack of motivation, injuries and life in general. You will be amazed at what you are truly capable of. I know you can do it. One step at a time. Just keep moving! emoticon

  emoticon I know what you are saying my friend and yes, it is hard and making a shake up sometimes help and sometimes just faking until you make it will push you over the hump too. I hope you get back what you love to do.

    I have an injured wrist that seriously shook up my workouts. I stopped training for almost 6 months bc I thought, "how can i train wo putting weight on my wrist?" I became extremely frustrated that I was gaining weight and it was my injury's fault. But then I got creative. I can still do cardio and situps. I can still work my legs, and if I'm careful about it I can even do a few pushups (on my knees). I've been pushing myself for almost a month now, and although it's still frustrating that I can't train the way I *want* to train, I'm still seeing results bc I'm doing *something*. It can be really hard to pull yourself up (took me 6 months) but once you do it quickly becomes worth it. Let me know if you need support.

    Like others say, past is past, you have 2 options now, dwell on how it used to be, or Push on and do better! Someone told me this before when i kept looking at my "skinny" past, and that was like 8 years ago, Now i turned it around saying thats gone, thats the past, and moving on to the future where i believe i be that skinny girl once more. And you should too :)

  Stop remembering the past and focus on the future. Nature reshapes our bodies as we age, so even if you regain that magic weight number, it will be in different places. emoticon

    Courti, in 2005-6 I lost 30 pounds and maintained it for 18 months. I know exactly how I did it, yet I cannot seem to do it now. So, when I am feeling like you are, I say to myself, "At least I am on SP, trying to get healthier, and not getting worse." We will both find our way "back" to where we want to be. Yes, it is frustrating, but it is worth it. Big hugs!

    You do have to find the motivation within yourself and sometimes it has to start with something external. I don't know if you are a believer but I would pray about it and ask others to pray with you or for you.

How's my Floridians doing?

Monday, August 27, 2012

Vero Beach had a tornado, but not in my area. We have rain, thunder and lightening. Seems better ....for now.

My SIL had some damage from the tornado to her porch and limbs on the roof.

We miss the actual hurricane, but boy, the damage form the outer bands can be just as bad.

How's everyone doing?

    I have boxes of shingles sitting on top of my roof. The roofers think they can get my new roof on before the hurricane rains hit here in Missouri. Had a house fire last month, still recovering.

They start tomorrow morning.

    oh wow.. I loved the book and one day way back several years, took a day off from work for a mental health home 'spa' day and slept in, took a walk in the mist, came home and had a healthy breakfast...long hot shower, did nails, etc.. and then sat and watched the movie Mists of Avaolon.. loved that it made for a perfect day off;

and now think I should see if I can buy it and watch it whenever the mood strikes.. thank you for reminding me.. and I thank Beautiful Reina for sending the link to your blog!

    Thank you so much for this link--I have the book but I've never even known there was a movie! The book totally ROCKS, can't wait to see the movie! If you like to read, after you read Mists of Avalon (if you are going to) then read Merlin's Harp--same author. It's my all time favorite book.

I finally got my page to delete what I had in the intro. Unident suggested it would be in the section on the side panels, like the signature section, but it waa in one of the other panes. Never thought to look there.

Thanks Unident.
