Time to get serious, Bob and Jillian serious!

Sunday, January 29, 2012

I've been too easy to myself. It's time to kick myself in the a**. I only have the last 20 pounds to lose. I almost make it them I slack off and gain it back. It's time to set a deadline. 20 weeks till Summer. 1 pound a week. Sounds easy. So why haven't I done it. Why am I still Fartin around.
I have lost 40 pounds. So what's so hard about the last 20 pounds? When you look at the Biggest Loser contestants almost al of them still need to lose. If you have watched Ali's new show you can see she has gained some back. Nothing like she was at her heaviest. I think the last 20 is harder to lose than 100.

I want to be at my ideal weight. Not just happy being in onderville. I want to reach my Ideal weight by Summer. So anyone out there that wants to get Bob-Jullian serious come join my team Goal Weight By Summer 2012 Challenge.

Let's get MEAN!

Sometime blessing come in the most unpleasant packages.

Friday, January 21, 2011

I've have seen many sparkers ask everyone to write down 10 thing they are thankful for. Responders always list the very pleasant and beautiful blessing in their lives. I think sometime we need to see how our trails and the unpleasant things in life have blessed us and made us stronger and wiser. Maybe we should list them and see how they have been blessings.

It seems hard to be thankful for things we wished we wouldn't have to endure or weaknesses we despise. Anyway I'm gonna give it a try.

1. Am I really thankful to be Fat. Not really. Am I thankful for what it has taught me. Yes! Sometimes I wish I had that fat burning body that I had as a teenager when I could eat all the pizza, burgers and fries I wanted and wash down with lots of coke. Would those eating habits server me well. Not really. Would I have had to learn to eat right. No. I know I eat healthier and exercise more because of my weight problem.

2. I am thankful that it's hard to control my appetite. Not really! I am thankful I've learned portion control and eating regular meals.

3. I'm thankful I'm lazy and don't want to exercises. No again. It's taught me that if I put my mind to it I can over come this weakness. Some days it can be a struggle and I have to tell myself to get my butt out the door. I've learned that once I've started I'm good. It's getting started that's the hard part not the doing.

Well it's time for bed I'll work on this more tomorrow.

    I truly believe we learn from our mistakes and the bad things that happen to us.
I grew up one of 14 kids and 4 of them have died- 3 younger than me.
These were all sad things but you better believe I learned a lot from their deaths.

Am I losing the fire already?

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

When I got up this mourning I did want to go down into the basement and get on my treadmill. I thought Wow what's happening? What happened to the fire? So I made myself get up and signed on to SP thinking I'll find something there that will fire me up. Nope not much going on there at the time. So I went back to bed.

Now lying in bed I'm thinking I can't really go back to sleep. What are my choices? Only I can chose what I do next. Got up put my shorts on and headed down stairs. I had set a goal on Jan. 3rd that I would w/o 6 days a week. Because I had made this choice in advance I knew what had to be done. Got myself on the treadmill. After 1 min. of walking I was feeling the fire. Wondering why I even want to stay in bed.

Last week the number one trait I felt I needed to develop that would help me reach my goals was Optimism. I needed to be excited about what I could accomplish in 20ll. This week I decided I needed I to have a strong desire to stay motivated enough to reach my expectation that I have for the coming year. I am the tender of my fire of my desire. I have to want it bad enough that I can over come my fears. Focusing on success rather than failure. Success has to become my dominant Desire.

So this week is about building that desire. How can I make It strong. How can I make it totally dominant. How to stay optimistic and become more so.

    I tell myself I only have to do it for 10 minutes. Then I can stop and go back to bed or do whatever I want. Rarely do I feel that I can't even muster up the energy for 10 minutes. Then, as you point out, I usually feel the fire and end up doing more than that!

Good for you for doing it!

    Well, know that you are not alone, we all feel that way. You have to think about how great you feel during and after a workout and just do it(ala Nike).
You can change your life!
Plus, think about how lucky you are to have your own treadmill at home :)
