I keep losing inches but not so much weight. I've hired a trainer and that starts this next week. I'll have a new eating plan along with many aggressive goals.

1. I will do the Copper Mtn Warrior Dash next year.
2. I will climb a 14'er too.
3. I will be at the gym 5 days a week.
4. I will be eating healthy and loving it!
5. I will keep a positive attitude about all the changes!!!

Help needed, how do you change your schedule?

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

Good afternoon everyone!

I'm at the point where I WANT to make this change in my life. I WANT to get my body back in shape and made for action.

But how? How do I just up and change my life to the point where I would have to walk away from some of the things that I love dearly? How do I just give up doing things in order to make room for different activities?

This is a really hard thing for me to do. What do you do or what did you do when you made this change?

    It's always hard to make a priority shift... to decide what you need/want to do versus what external forces are at work. It's tough.

  What is it you're wanting to change or willing to!?!?! That's always a good start and do a little at a time as it's a lifestyle change. Eat more fruits and veggies, starting with the ones that you like to eat. start working out in front of the TV or during commercials and add 5 minutes at a time. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

  Make small changes one at a time. Up your water and start with 10 minutes of walking a day. Once those are part of your day add one more change like adding fruits and veggies to your meals. This will help ensure that the changes stick and become life long habits.

Dilemmas!

Monday, June 23, 2014

Hello again everyone!

It's been a while yet again for a blog. Life has thrown me some curve balls recently but I think I'm getting where I need to be. I was pleasantly surprised to get on the scale this morning to see a decrease. I've been so frustrated with the lack of weight loss when I've been eating healthier than I've ever eaten. I think I was not eating enough food to be honest. This weekend was kind of a "oh the heck with it" attitude. I didn't track anything, was hoping to be mindful of what I was eating and within range. Surprisingly I made it through with a loss! Granted it was .3 but it put me below 240 pounds for the first time in a very very long time.

A while back I started taking thyroid meds. Synthroid, no generic, and all we've done is increase my dosage. I'm still constantly tired. No energy. Lethargic in a lot of cases. Saturday was my last dose. Yesterday I was just plain irritated and nothing snapped me out of being irritated. I snapped at Shari, my youngest, which is extremely rare for me.

So, today yes I'm sleepy, but I didn't sleep very well. I splurged on new sheets for our bed. Satin sheets. They were amazing, but kind of stuck to me a bit last night. So it was a weird night for sleep. However I feel more awake in my brain than I have for months!

As for the lifestyle change, I have a walking partner if I could just meet up with her! She's committed to walking Monday, Wednesday and Friday's. It seems like either she or I have something going on and just cannot make it! It's rather ridiculous! However, we're not giving up and we'll make it when we can.

Goal for the summer? Climb a 14,000 feet in elevation mountain. And if we don't make it that far? That's okay. We'll work toward next year!

    Thyroid problems are not fun to have. I listen to my sister complain all the time and wonder when it will happen to me. I have been borderline so it is just a matter of time before I am on pills as well.

emoticon on the loss and getting out there walking!

Your goal sounds amazing! I wish I had a mountain around here to climb. That would be so much fun! I'm cheering you on!

    Audra,
Life has been so hectic lately! I took 2 days off my Synthroid and I became a royal B word! I couldn't even stand to be around myself for it! My shift changes at work, that is something I'm really looking forward to! I need more time at night to get things done!
Love you girl,
Bex
