Just Keep Swimming *Upgrade*

Saturday, July 23, 2011

Some of you asked to see my upgraded tattoo.

It use to just have Dory and the words. Now it has Squirt and a starfish as well. Still a little swollen and sore...but really pretty and bright...the pic doesn't do it justice. It's hard to take a picture of one arm with the other! :)

Today was much smoother thank you!

Thursday, July 21, 2011

Thanks to everyone who read my blog yesterday! Today was much better...and I have to tell you, more stuff happened after I wrote that blog yesterday! Finally my man said...you need to go to bed! LOL

My car was towed for free today...but I will need to replace my BMW's Radiator...so all up $500...and it will be ready tomorrow. I packed all the right food, stuck to the plan, popped 2 codeine and took a $38 taxi ride to get my Tattoo upgrade at 4:30...until 6:30. I love it. I am home, happy, a little in pain, but all is good today!

Now to eat some soup for dinner! :)
Have a great Night! :)

As Far As I'm Concerned...Today NEVER HAPPENED!

Wednesday, July 20, 2011

I am usually drama free...but today has kicked my white booty around the block and up a hill today! What the heck?!
Before I even crawled out of bed, I got a Facebook message from my mom in the states saying she had to put my cat "Zeus" to sleep yesterday. :( Just cried cried for the loss of Zeus and for my mom who now is pet-less which is VERY unlike her. :(

Then My man decides to be nice and warm my car up and all of a sudden I hear a BOOM and my car is smoking and there is antifreeze and water all over our driveway. So I move the car and then try to cover all the antifreeze with cat litter and dirt until I can get home from work...while I worry about our 3 persian cats getting into it and dying! :( I decide to take a Taxi to work instead of trying to drive it! $38 to work. We break a drinking glass before leaving the house and I actually pack all the wrong food for my day that I had planned, and I just wanna cry!

Get to work and actually almost booked people for an appointment for last week and every rubberband I touched snapped. I spilled coffee grounds all over the floor...and I don't even drink coffee!!! Seriously....I just threw my hands up. Didn't want to cook dinner as I was afraid I may cut off a limb or digit or burn myself to a crisp. Feeling defeated. So we got some KFC and it was yummy and I am having a "Re-Do Day" tomorrow after the tow truck comes to get my car.

Also getting my DORY "Just Keep Swimming" tattoo revamped tomorrow night...Pain. I think I'll sleep through it...HA HA...kidding.

So...today never happened...how was your day? LOL

    I've had days like that, they suck!

All you really can do is have a "Re-Do Day" (love it!) like you said.

Hope tomorrow (today?) is better!

Interested VS Committed

Monday, July 18, 2011

During my journey in weight loss and what I have acheived or not achieved yet, I learned some things and had some ah-ha moments. There is a beautiful saying in the motivational pictures on Sparkpeople that explains the difference between interest and commitment and I remind myself of it often. It's so true. When we want something so bad we can taste it, NOTHING will get in our way of getting it. NOTHING. But when we could "take it or leave it", we allow other things to take priority...it may happen eventually, but it's not important if it happens today.

Interested = One day of pigging out is okay. I'll get back on track tomorrow. It's my Birthday after all...or it's Friday...or it's Christmas....etc "IT'S JUST ONE DAY"
Committed = I have tracked and preplanned my food for today & I might treat myself to a treat after lunch/dinner because it's my Birthday..1 TREAT...not a whole day blitz!

Interested = I can't be bothered working out today - the gym is too busy - it's cold out - it's hot out - it's raining....etc.
Committed = I have a gym membership, I have a dog to walk, I have an umbrella or a hooded sweatshirt, I have a Wii with active games, I have a swiss ball, I have DVDs, I HAVE NO EXCUSE!

Interested = Water not in - forgot to take vitamins - didn't track my food
Committed = EXTRA water drank - Vitamins pre-packed and taken - Food pre-planned for the week ahead

Interested= I don't want to offend anyone so I will just eat whatever they serve
Committed = I offer to bring a big a$$ fresh salad and ask what is on the menu. May pack a cooler with a chicken breast incase they serve meat...but most people know I don't eat anything with fur :) I bring my water bottle. I take a protein bar in my bag all the time so I'm not stuck or forced to eat crap or starve.

Interested= I don't have time to pack a lunch and I'l just grab something at work. OR I don't have time for breakfast
Committed = I preplan all meals and get cookbooks to get ideas on breakfast and lunch ideas so I don't get bored...I love The Biggest Loser ones :) Get it together the night before.

Interested= Can't wait to go to the movies and get snacks!
Committed = fruit, cut up veggies, hummus, air popped popcorn, and my water bottle are packed.

Interested = I don't care that it's 10 pm at night...I am bored/sad/anxious/stressed and I NEED something to munch on
Committed = I write in my journal, blog in SP, talk to a supportive friend, read a positive book, watch GI Jane or another motivational movie and have a cup of hot green tea.

Interested = I know what I want to weigh but I won't tell anyone incase I fail or quit. If people know, they will judge me when I am eating something not on plan..etc
Committed = I tell everyone, I have a goal poster with my goals listed and pictures, I track my progress...etc I know because I am committed for life, I have no guilt, no worry of judegment, and only worry about my daily to-do's :) I'll get there! :)

Interested = I can't eat the way I should because I have a husband and kids and they want_____ instead.
Committed = I pre-plan the meals and post them in the kitchen, if hubby doesn't want, he can make his own dinner and the kids are kids so they will eat what mom says and help mom pick meal plans and help make the dinner so they know how to eat healthy too.

So...these are just some that I have realized lately. Maybe you have too...or maybe you're still just interested...

    Well, this makes total sense :) I guess a lot of time we (including myself) are guilty of doing the things that may come off as interested. I know if I want to loose weight I need to be serious...thanks for pick me up today :)

    Wow..thats just what I needed to hear today. Wish I had read it earlier in the day since I am on my way to bed now and I don't really want to start drinking water or exercising now..but I do not have to take that extra little snack upstairs to bed with me..I will step away from the cookie jar..I am printing out your blog and posting it on my fridge and cupboards and doors so I can see it where ever I look. I really really like it.

All going well and then...shake shake ouch

Monday, July 18, 2011

So..everything was moving along like clockwork and then Friday I pulled my groin and it's almost Tuesday and it still hurts. I hear this takes forever to heal...DAMN IT! And while I usually sleep on the weekends, the aftershocks and groin pain has kept me awake and thus, the scale didn't budge the last couple days. Took a codeine tonight and hopefully I will be asleep soon. usually it not only helps the pain, but gets me to sleep through the night...and I'm not tired in the morning. Codeine is the only drug that I can take for 90% of any pain or sleepless nights that doesn't mess with me. Thank god it's like $3 for 60 tablets here! Gotta love free health care! :)

Hope everyone has a great week...I am off to bed!
Blogged to get me over my 100 spoints for the day....sorry to bore ya' :) LOL
