I'm doing it!

Saturday, April 23, 2011

Wow - I'm really doing this! I've lost 11 lbs. and I know that if I follow the plan I can do it... but I've really been having trouble sticking to things... tracking my meals... hitting the gym when my friend/sister can't meet me there... staying within my calorie range...

BUT I have been doing great at getting little extra bursts of activity! Squats while I brush my teeth... leg lifts in front of the photocopier... parking in the farthest corner of the parking lot... drinking all my water for the day...

I guess the things I'm doing right are adding up, even if I'm not perfect. And falling short of perfect, the temptation is there to just throw in the towel, but I WILL NOT. I will keep doing the best I can and remember that I am only an imperfect human being, doing the best that I can to strive for the perfection that will always be just out of reach - because that is the state of being human.

And that is comforting, to know that everyone else is in the same boat as me, one way or another!!

Soldier on!

wondering if i caught the flu from my computer or if my computer caught a virus from me... regardless, both my computer and I were down for the count last week. i'm feeling grateful to be feeling better, and even more grateful that a friend got my computer back up and running. I was beginning to think i'd have to reformat my hard drive.

so, hoping that i can get back into the swing of things. feeling a little overwhelmed at everything that's piled up over the course of a week!

Coming through a wormhole... for a while thought it was a black hole and I'd been swallowed up for good. But suddenly, here I am, back in the known universe. Thanks to a doctor who decided to stop throwing medications at me and had me tested for sleep apnea and Vitamin D levels. So, turns out I have severe sleep apnea (and I don't really snore - who knew?) And a Vitamin D level below 10. So, there's hope ahead.

In the meanwhile, I was strongly urged not to wait until I feel better to start excersing again, but to start excersizing now in order to feel better sooner. Quicker. Whatever. So, I re-joined the gym, resumed SparkPeople, and signed up for No Boundaries at my local Fleet Feet shop. It's all good.

It's not the destination, it's the journey; right? That's what I've been telling myself.
I have confidence that it will be a fun ride - rollercoasters always are!
