Trying To Get Back On Track

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

Not much happened today

Did my run this morning and got a PB by 5mins emoticon was really chuffed and spurred me on.

Then went for the dog walk without the dog emoticon

Went to work but only had a short day so went for a 30 min swim after work, would have done longer but with it being the summer holidays the kids came in at 9am emoticon

Did some chores at home, ran some errands, did a bit of core strength training as extra.

Unfortunately I went over on my calorie intake but not by a lot but still over but I am trying to get back on track, I will do it!!

    I wouldn't worry about going over on calories for one day. One of the things that helped me break a bad plateau was going over on calories one day, then under the next. The balance over time makes the overall difference, but sometimes you need to confuse your body a little to shake things up.

Time With Friends

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

I went out today with a very good friend who I haven't seen for ages, we spent a lovely afternoon at Chatsworth and had a walk by the river, it was good to catch up with what's been happening in each others lives.

She also started a weight loss program in January and has lost a stone and a half so far, she's looking really good, she is doing a different programme to me but it's working for her, she too has been having personal issues with her other half but not about her weight, about their whole lives together and needless to say she is now a single girl and loving it.

I was a good girl at lunch time and had a healthy sandwich and a bottle of water rather than a cup of coffee and a scone or cream cake, felt good to be in control for a change.

Took granddaughter climbing tonight, we didn't take her last week because of what went off so I wasn't feeling up to it, we also went to bike night in Scarcliffe and it was really packed as the weather has been so nice and hot today, they must have done a roaring trade which we're glad about they haven't been having much luck lately what with the foul weather and all.

Stayed within calorie range today...yay!!!
Also met most of my goals emoticon

    It really is we both lead such busy lives and hardly get see one another anymore so we have to make a conscious effort to make time so the time we spend together is very special.

    Isn't it nice to catch up with friends you haven't seen in a long time? I love being able to just pick up where you left off. Sometimes it isn't so easy...

Starting Over

Monday, July 23, 2012

Well I've been away from SP for a little over a week due to some personal problems and issues.

I have a hubby that says he supports me and spurs me on to do well at whatever I choose to do but then as soon as I really start getting into things and enjoying it he decides he doesn't like me doing it quite so much and tells me it's taking over my life....eeerrr, NO IT ISN'T!!! and even if it is would it be such a bad thing? What is it with other halves saying one thing and then totally doing another, so I've not been at my best. Oh and that bit of weight, it's all gone back really feeling down and depressed and most of all really angry, angry at him for putting me through it but even more angry at myself for letting him make me feel this way, but NO MORE, if he doesn't like it he knows where the door is, I am so sick and tired of living my life for other people, I am now living my life for me!!!!

We had a good long talk and I decided that if he can't live with me improving myself then he didn't have to and he could leave anytime he chose but he chose not to, (funny that).

I did start exercising again a few days ago but today is the first day that I've started tracking my food from the last time, I've gone over by a few calories but I'm not too upset about it.

Now I'm getting back into it things should start getting back to normal.

Had a lovely day in Whitby with hubby and the in-laws, did lots of walking(very steep hills) and lots of steps.

    Thankyou all so much for your kind words and support.

Please don't misunderstand me, I have been abroad and also had weekends away with my girlfriends on numerous occasions, he has no problem with things like that, the problem is when I start something on my own, yes I do think it is trust issues even though he says it is not but I do think I have finally got through to him and that spending to much time together is unhealthy.

We spend every minuite together apart from when we are working, our hobbies and interests are very much the same, walking, biking, cycling, eating out, cinema, etc... he is a much fitter person than me and always has been, he used to run for the Chesterfield Cross Country team, he loves extreme sports (not so much these days now he's a bit older), he plays football every Thursday night come hell or high water and I think his biggest fear is that when I get fitter I can give him a run for his money, he won't have that over me.

It's not just the getting healthy part that he's been funny with though this is what I can't get my head around, it seems to be when I find an interest that doesn't involve him, so I really think Stonecot has hit the nail on the head it's about him not being the centre of my world.

Well I've made my decision now that no matter what he does or says, I'm doing this for me because I want it, I need it and I'm damn well going to carry on with it!!!!

    My husband was like that. He ruled me for 40 years. When he died I found I couldn't even mourn him. Although I miss having someone there, I don't miss him. So try to keep up your interests and keep working to make yourself into what you want to be. Although he's making it your problem, really it's his. He doesn't like not being the centre of attention. I love Whitby, I've been there a lot. Good luck on your journey.

    Love the photos. Your husband does not OWN you, you are both equals, ,you are to respect one another desires & wishes. Do not allow him to make you a VICTIM!!!
When I went to Israel, Greece & Jordan. my husband would not go, he would NEVER get on a plane, I also hate flying. However this was my dream to go to Israel since I was 7 years old I went when I was 40.He was concerned about my safety, but was happy I was having my dream come true after 33 years., and so many people told me if you were my wife I would never let you go , or the other one was my husband would never let me go. Every single time someone said that I held my hand up like a stop sigh & said ," STOP my husband & I do not own one another, we respect each others dreams & needs. " He should be thrilled you want to become healthy, maybe he has a fear of losing you when you reach your goal. My one relative lost so much it s all her husband did was fight, he questioned where she was every time she went out the door.he was mad because she went to college ( they could afford it ) but he was afraiid of losing her.all because she became healthy & fit. Keep the desire in your heart & let it burn like the torch of the Olympic Games!!!!!!

    Don't let him get in your way and make you feel bad about yourself. You need to do this for yourself and he can either put up opr shut up.

    I feel your pain here! I drew my line in the sand and it hasn't been going over too well. Mostly my grown up big boy husband and very capable 15 yr old daughter love to respond..."Seriously" "Are you serious right now?" .. You have to say that with a huge eye roll. I just nod and keep lacing up my tennis shoes... Yep!

Over On Calorie Intake

Monday, July 16, 2012

Gone well over on my calorie intake today but I'm not too upset a bit disappointed but never mind, I will be definitely going to be more in control of things tomorrow.

Went for my run this morning and the dogless walk emoticon

Will step up the fitness tomorrow too. I've been really busy sorting stuff out for friends plus hubby and I, just took my eye off the ball.


Keeping Fit

Sunday, July 15, 2012

Did my run this morning and the walk I would normally take the dog on.

Went back to bed and was woken by a telephone call by my daughter at 9.30am, good job really or I might just have stayed in bed til lunchtime emoticon

Went for a hike in the peak district incorporating some hills for 2hrs, for a bit of keeping fit. went to my favourite cafe at Grindleford for lunch but we had difficulty getting parked as the weather was nice and everyone was out enjoying it.

Just chilled for the rest of the day when we got home, apart from booking our holiday to Ireland next month which I am really looking forward too emoticon
