WOW - The man gives me a LIGHTBULB moment! Weird!

Tuesday, December 07, 2010

Okay...so I am the positive American girl who dreams big, sees the glass as half full, does now and thinks later...a true Gemini! My man is a skeptical, non-dreaming Kiwi man who is cautious and glass half empty!!! But I think I am finally winning the war on minimal thinking at our house!!!

I am so proud of my commitment to workout everyday...even with all my success and my job helping others lose weight, I have never been committed like I am now! I have lost lots of weight and feel accountable to Facebook, my boss, myself, my clients, and even the FourSquare App on my iPhone holds me accountable! But yesterday this was a conversation in our house:

Me: "I still don't like how I look in the mirror at the gym"
Man: "At least you can look in the mirror at the gym"
Me "Huh?!"
Man: It means you're actually at the gym!!!

Good point! I shut up and went to take a shower with a big grin on my face and a wee bit of shock!!! He has loved me fatter, thinner and in between. When we met online, he actually responded to a photo that was a heavier me that I forgot to change and had since lost weight...so I actually had to tell him I was 40 pounds lighter!! LOL he met me at what I call my BEST and then I moved here to be with him and I had to learn to eat all over again because there isn't anything I ate everyday that I can get here...except some produce! And things are expensive. So he watched me pack it all back on and be miserable...and loved me! He says I am more myself when I am where I am now...my attitude and confidence is what makes him love me...not what the scale says. Whatever makes me happy!

So...just when ya' think you're talking to a brick wall....

Beat my times at the gym after bad day! :)

Monday, December 06, 2010

Well....I think I got some much needed rest, however I got a bad headache this morning and was up all night feeling not so flash! So I moved appointments around and took the day off and stayed in bed. I stuck to my eating plan and took some Panadol, and then around 3 I made myself get up and go to the gym...my man stayed home today too due to a migraine and he wasn't sure if I should go...but I guess I have come to the conclusion that I don't wanna sound like some of my clients who always have an excuse and are just puttering along justifying all the crappy reasons they have and feed me each week. Like treats....when you have a bad day or a bad week it's cool...we all have them...but when it's every flippin week...it's a habit that needs to be fixed!!!

I had the best workout yet and almost doubled my time from a week ago! Watching The Girls Next Door is always good motivation :) Time flies!
Now, shower, dinner, bed!
Tomorrow awaits!

    For me, just getting started on my workout is the hardest part. Once I'm there and moving it gets easier. Proud of you for getting up and getting there. And even prouder of you for the great workout you had!

I don't think it needs to take 21 days!

*** I wrote this last night but my internet was acting up and I couldn't submit it :(

I realized today that mentally...it's done! I will make a way - find a way to get to the gym and/or get activity in everyday! I have never felt like this in my 38 1/2 years! :) Weird! But Really proud!

After the 45 minute walk with the dog for Wag N Walk this morning, I was really tired...I didn't feel like doing anymore. Then I took a little nap...then I REALLY didn't want to go. Then I made dinner and I REALLY REALLY didn't want to go! My Aunt Flo got worse so I was more tired, craving bad food and had some cookies, and just felt like crawling into bed until Monday morning.

So....I got dresses for the gym...and my man asked me...wanna go for a drive? I said no...I HAVE to go to the gym! LOL And he knew I didn't want to go! LOL But I went!

AND I HAD A GREAT WORKOUT...I watch UFC while working out now and it motivates me and pushes me and times flies!!! I even ran a little....my motto is...I don't run unless I'm being chased....so today was a lightbulb moment. :) My times are getting better and it's not SO hard anymore and it's because of the bootcamp on here and the fact that I committed to doing it! I still had cookies and It's better to have cookies and workout for 90 minutes than just eat cookies and lay around!!!! So, Aunt Flo can get the hell out any time now and I'll go back to normal! I never crave anything anymore thanks to OptiSlim Max tablets I take! :)

So...I am feeling proud today and I know I've made a big change! I can feel it!
Good night!

    Awesome attitude! Fantastic I definitely love the feeling of knowing I'm at the gym rather than eating pizza on the couch.

Friday's are sort of a relaxing day for me...only a couple clients and then I got another tattoo...Tinkerhell...I love it! :)

Then I spent the rest of the day watching Hart to Hart and relaxing. I did strength exercises for day 6 bootcamp since I couldn't sweat today with the tattoo...so tomorrow I have the Wag N Walk at Hagley Park and I'll go to the gym as well...so do Day 5. I am suppose to relax basically but I just swapped days!

Had some M& Ms today but I felt totally fine because I know I'll burn it off!!! Haven't had them in so long.

Again...just trying to get this SP stuff logged so I can go to bed! LOL
Have a great weekend!
