Tidying Mission

Friday, September 19, 2014

So the last few days I have been cleaning and tidying everything in sight. A really good spring clean. I still havent been the gym since last Thursday but I am hoping all this housework is burning some calrories Plus its making me feel better in my home.

I have been trying to make small changes and stay close to the spark but I dont know if I want to just get started now and start logging my food. I am scared if I set my goals too high I will fail but also feeling impatient now and just want to get stuck in.

I do eat over my calories but the main problem I have is not eating the right things. I dont eat any fruit and veg some days/weeks. I have soda and crisp. Maybe it would be more realistic to just say no soda or crisp for a week to start me off or maybe I should be tracking everything and just go for it.

Anyways happy Friday everyone xx

Slippery slope

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

So last week I was doing really well and was starting to get back on track. Went the gym Thursday and then had a friend over for tea. All was lovely until we drank too much wine and I overslept for work the next day. Work when I did arrive was awful which resulted in me eating bad all day. I then slept in again on the Saturday so didn't go the gym. The days that followed that where more of the same.

I have really tried not to set my goals too high because I don't meet them and then I give up but still I find myself kind of doing the same. At least I haven't gone totally off the rails and I am still here and ready to carry on. I managed to keep some goals such as not smoking and walking to work.

I could have gone the gym today but I decided to have a super tidy of my home which has made me feel better too. Xx

    Not giving up is the most important thing. Your a winning already cause your still here and still trying. If you find your goals to hard to reach. Try setting small goals for now and then working up to larger ones.

    ok so I am a thinking no drinking for you. emoticon Really you should read about the calories in it and what it does in processing your food it aint good for a healthy diet. Even Wine you know how they say a bit is good for you well I mean there is 100 cals in 5 oz of wine. Just wow.

Hump day whoop whoop

Wednesday, September 10, 2014

Overwhelmed by the response to my blog yesterday. Wish there was a like button for comments. Really grateful thank you.

Feeling happy again today. Bit of a big day in work with some challenges. I heard the usual thoughts in my head of worrying others were disproving of me and that I do t fit in, feeling like I should go Holme with a take a away but u knew that would make me feel worse.

So I did go home but I made myself a healthy meal. I did have wine whoops but I am making decisions each day that count and I seem to be craving less for food. It's also nearly a month since I smoked and my breathing has improved so I am getting there. Feeling impatient but u need to be realistic and I want to enjoy the journey

Xx

Mixed emotions

Tuesday, September 09, 2014

My emotions have been a little all over the place today but mostly positive. In fact very positive. I am starting to feel like I have more energy and I am looking forward to getting in the gym tomorrow.

Things to be grateful for

My lovely friend visiting last night for egg and toast and an episode of a comedy show we like. Was it's what the doctor ordered. Sometimes it's the simple things.

Sunshine today

The peace and calm in my apartment after a long day.

Xx

    You're right - it is the little things - we just have to free ourselves up to see it.
Eating healthy foods and moving myself around in the right way does it for me - you too obviously. Just have to keep at it until the better habits take a good hold.
Glad you're feeling so positive - hang on to that.

Slow & Steady

Monday, September 08, 2014

Well I have managed to keep to spark for a full week. This is the first time in ages. I havent been logging food but I have logged exercise and tracked mini goals in a team I am in which has helped.

I have given up smoking yet again and I am on day 20 ish. My moords have been terrible up and down. The last year has been up and down to be honest - in a whirl wind of day after day of smoking and eating junk. I have tried to get back to spark so many times before and failed as I am often unrealistic. I try and become a different person over night and the minute I fail I just give up. So this time its small changes.

Last week I was able to start eating fruit and veg more. I am not getting my 5 a day yet but am working towards it. I am down to just one fizzy drink a day. Exercising at least 3 times a week. but last week I did more then that because I am also including walks. Yep back in the gym and evenb had a little swim one day. I am not logging my food yet as I won't keep it up and I am not eating well enough yet for it to motivate me.

I do want to lose weight but first and foremost I am hoping the healthier diet and exercise will improve my mood and also clear me of the silly spots and other skin problems I seem to be getting lately.

My self esteeem is low and my mood but sometimes you just got to wake up, work out what you want and realise what you have to do to get there.

xx

    Debbi emoticon good to see you! None of this is easy. Just take one step at a time - slow and steady as you say. Not that I'm one to talk - up and down a lot lately. But I know how to do it - as do you - and we both need to get back at it - AND stick at it!

    Just remember it is a process and it comes one step at a time. Don`t rush it to much that is what brings on the failure. make exercise enjoyable and fun if it is to hard you stop. emoticon I know you can. by all means love yourself and who you are. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
