I was soo so busy for the last 2 months, incredible! I havr my last class this Sunday and i'm so happy that finally it's gonna be summer for real! Planing holidays outside of the province and paying big bills is still a big stress but nothing compared to work+university+money problems.. Anyway!

I went for my annual exam at the gyneco and she found my blood pressure a bit high and asked me to be my family doctor so she can have a check on me from time to time. My pressure was super high, 150/100!! I wasn't feeling really well that day, lack of sleep, stress, it was like 40 celcius outside.. Anyway, I told her I would make improvements before I see her again in one month. I already did! I droped Red Bull completely, which is about the most retarded thing you can do to your health.. Disminished my espressos consumption too. I still drink a lot of water and introduced fruit smoothie on my daily routine. As soon as next tuesday i'm gonna be back at the gym, my next apointment with the doctor is in a month exactly. I can already feel some good changes. I feel lighter and can feel my pressure is lower as well. I'll try to have better sleep and I promessed my boyfriend we'd have a nice summer outside, so I plan on going hiking and kayaking :)) What i'm the most proud of is that I've been Able to detox myself from that nasty nasal spray stuff I was addicted on for a couples years now!!! It's a big deal to me. I notice that I don't wake up with headaches as much as I did :)) Yay! I'm very happy :)

    Wow! Look at all those changes you did! That is emoticon

Stress really does not help us with our goals, sounds like you're finding some good ways to deal with that too!

I guess your last class was today. Welcome to summer! Enjoy kayaking and hiking!

    Yeah, it's hard to go to the gym. I paid for over a year without going before I finally just stopped paying! Now I set myself 10min exercise goals, and I still have a hard time with that! Yesterday my youngest boy really wanted to go swimming. It took all my small change but I made it. If it wasn't for him, I would have done nothing at all!

    Two pds/week is a tough goal! Like the others here-I haven't done that in.....forever!

I like to refer to some of the motivational articles that suggest setting goals that we have control over. Ex. Drinking 8 glasses of water a day, eating 5 fruits or vegies a day, etc. Of course, don't look at my ticker right at the moment, I just put it up a pound! But I think it's exactly because of that-I have lost vision of my goals!!!

I've decided that today that I'm setting up goals for May. I'm working on my May goals blog. If you're interested, set something up too and we can cheer each other along for the month!

    The worst thing you can do is get down on yourself or get discouraged. It has taken me over a year to lose 25 lbs, now that is SLOW!!!! Hang in there.

    Don't get discouraged, think about it, two pounds are two pounds that you could be carying around now but you are not, it slowly starts accumulating and when you least expect it you have lost ten, twelve or even more pounds. Change is slow but it comes, just hang in there.

Thank you ladies!

I think I actually like going to the gym, it's not that hard for me, it's more a question of time.. I am so busy.. On the other hand, it allows me not to worry about anything else, I don't bring my phone to the gym, just an iPod, so I just sit on that bike and do my thing while listening to music. I can enjoy that!

I lost my first 40 pounds just changing my nutrition habits and walking, I know it can be done again, but my body is asking for more for such a long time now.. It really needs to get done. I need to relearn how to eat well and resist junk cravings. Lately the latest is the hardest. ..emotions.. I need to find some focus.

I think it's doable :)

I bought good stuff; veggies, fruit, stuff to make smoothies for after the gym, made a fresh batch of hummus, etc. I will cut mayonnaise and cheese from my breakfast and stop eating chips/chocolate/random stuff while I work.. and try to replace it by some more healthy options like rice crackers and nuts and fruit :) I was still eating quite well even though I took 20 pounds back, it's just all the "other" things that ruined it all.

OK BYE, tons of homework to do.. deadlines deadlines.

    Life always gets in the way! Sounds like you are off to a great week though! You have a great plan.

I guess we really have to keep reminding ourselves that when we are doing exercises and eating well- we are really looking after ourselves. We are 'refuelling' and 'tuning up'. (My goodness, too many car references-can you tell I have two boys!?)

And yes, it can(should) be enjoyable to be looking after ourselves. We are worth it! Maybe we could start a new group called the emotional exercisers or something like that!

Good luck with the homework. emoticon

Yeah.. another bad one. I haven't go to the gym once and I have 0 willpower. It sucks. What do you do to take yourself out of that situation? I'll go tomorrow.

    Since you ask, here are my thoughts!

I say forget the gym if you don't like it. Otherwise, you will feel bad and feel like you failed. Or, dont strive for the perfect gym workout (cardio and ST for X amount of minutes, etc).
Stick to what you find more enjoyable/less painful. If its a 20 minute walk every day- so be it! Come up with alternatives even if they are not your ideal goal as the feeling of success and accomplishment is what will keep you going on the long run.

One day at a time! You can do it! Good luck. emoticon

    Some people suggest putting your equipment in the lockers before work and going back to ''collect it'' in the evening and getting in a workout then. You could also try switching it up again and do some swimming, join a few classes or get some fitness games on the Wii. I'm itching to try ''Just Dance'' and ''Just Dance 2''- it looks super fun. I find sing star good for working up a sweat too, but I'm pretty unfit.

Hope that helps!
