attitude all the time

Tuesday, May 21, 2013

I fall for the "all or nothing" attitude just about every day. It's that feeling that I should at least get one thing right. And of course it is totally irrational. Perfection isn't for me. Way too much work. Too time consuming, also. Creating that personal balance for my life is where I see part of my problems being at. Playing the comparison games with others even when I'm not completely aware of it is another self destructive attitude I carry with me. I know I won't complete get the hang of my weight journey until I get a handle on my distorted view of what a "perfect" life should be like.


What is my "happy" weight

Tuesday, May 14, 2013

I have already discovered some perks to getting fit. My memory has improved. I recall names I would not have remembered 6 months ago. I can play tag with my kids without getting winded as fast. I don't have that "you look pregnant" gut anymore or at least not as much. I think my happy weight is the weight where I feel fabulous about what I can do because my body and health is not in the way. It's the weight where I am no longer obsessed about my size. I want to enjoy living and doing things with the people I love.

The fairy distraction

Monday, May 13, 2013

Some days I have good intentions. I plan out my day, my exercise and what I'm going to eat. I have my activities written on a calendar. I am set. Except I have this little issue. I live with a four year old fairy princess with curls. I swear she has magical powers, she knows exactly when I am planning on getting my stuff done. This is the time she really demands my attention. And she very persuasive. I have distracted her with trinkets and sweet treats to no avail. She is very determined. All I can do now is let her join in. I have come to realize she is my best ally in my life change and I really don't want to do it with out her. My daughter is now my cheerleader and my food critic. But mainly my fairy princess is my reason and my motivation.


A hilly adventure

Thursday, May 02, 2013

When I started sparkpeople, it was an exciting adventure. Then it became overbearing because I tried to do everything at once. I started chucking large portions of my plans out the window. I have discovered about myself that I need to reevaluate my goals often and that I need to slowdown. Just changing one thing at a time and spending time letting it stick is helping me lose weight steadily but also allowing this to be a personal empowering adventure once again.

  baby steps are always good. when something becomes a habit then add another something to your plan. set small goals and reward yourself when obtained.
