Wednesday, October 23, 2013

So doctors appointment today ..turns out blood pressure is great...but weight not so much...I'm 3 lbs more than I thought I was...yay for old scale at home making me feel awesome....but lies are never fun...so new goals have to be made and I've been very consistent with my eating habits so now I must need to get more than just walking in...which should not be hard at all just upping the pace a little and I have nothing to hold me back technically I'm healthy as a horse..just not an athletic horse...YET =D looking forward to trying a new routine and there's plenty of videos on spark I think I'm going to take on a video challenge...I know I get an email a day with an exercise in it so that shall be my objective for now...along with an added video perhaps since I don't have a gym membership the outdoors and indoor weights and stability ball will definitely be my tools for success! I have the recipe now I just need to add it all together ....hope you all are having a fantastical day =)

oh how I have missed natures skittles...

Monday, October 14, 2013

well life liked to peek in n hand me a barrel of monkeys..needless to say the wagon fell off into a canyon of friedfoodsonlyville...i dont think i have missed healthy eating so much in my life... its been about a week and i think i have seen one fruit and one vegetable... well if you count toppings on a pizza... or mashed potatoes smothered in gravy a serving =P it is kinda crazy how easy it is to give into laziness and how that will snowball quicker than a second hand on a clock.....exercise? pshh pizza n tv lets do it.....so so very easy to say yes to all the bad things .....also how easy the voice of reason can be shut out with junk food and/or drinks.... i have come to the realization i miss feeling energetic and although giving into the fast food felt good momentarily... in the long run it is not meant for me and i honestly will not miss it.. having this feeling i do now.. craving veggies and fruits like no ones business not to mention the energy lag... its like coming off of a cup of espresso after 2 days of no sleep....i was attempting to enjoy the life my family has around me but they partake in things i do not like to mostly in the food realm ...since i have been making smarter more informed decisions i cannot rely on those around me to have my best interests at hand... that is my doing and i know this....i am looking forward to my farmers market trip tomorrow...i dont think ive ever been more excited to pick out food to make for the next few days =D

    I think we sometimes do have to fall off the wagon to figure out that you don't like the way you feel after eating certain foods, or that some "treats" really aren't as tasty as you thought they would be. Making choices that work for you--not your family--may not always be easy or realistic, but perhaps you can come up with some good compromises. (I brought lite cheese and unsalted almonds with me on a movie "date" yesterday, so I could avoid greasy, salty popcorn that I can't stop eating once I begin.)

    I've had days like that, felt just lazy and blah and didn't feel like tracking/eating well etc.

consistency for the win!

Sunday, September 08, 2013

am now on my day 4 of making healthy food choices and working out 10 or more minutes per day im feeling more confident and although a bit sore im enjoying it =)

i recently watched Forks Over Knives..im not sure if any of you have heard of this.. its a documentary about changing food habits and having the food be the medicine in your life.. its quite an eye opener and definitely something worth watching..i was introduced to it oddly enough in English class.. we were discussing observing the ordinary.. and one of the most ordinary things we do without thinking is eat food.. with as many fast food and convenient go to stores for our fast pace lives.... do we focus what we put in our bodies.. i know spark has helped with alot of that... makes us slow down and write everything look up nutritional value...i personally have given up fast food for quite a while now after reading so many articles and knowing how sluggish and blah the food makes me feel after eating it.... its interesting to know all the facts they give you in the documentary and how things relate to one another www.forksoverknives.com

    emoticon You are doing great with your streak of healthy food/exercise habit! Thanks for sharing about the documentary. I've been wanting to watch it~I think it's on Netflix streaming. We have been talking about going a little more vegan at our house, too, and we haven't even watched it. Have a healthy week!

dealing with the deep stuff

Thursday, September 05, 2013

sometimes i wonder if falling off the bandwagon is helpful or hurtful i acknowledge where i go wrong and so therefore think i learn.. but somehow those treads keep getting worn cause those same paths are followed.. i seem to try to maintain this mask like everything is ok and eventually yes i know it will be but those moments.. those crucial moments when everything is coming at you seems like it is never going to end....ive been keeping more to myself lately and im not sure why i have a good idea.. i havent been maintaining anything besides food or drink to mouth.. which isnt really much of an accomplishment.. i know ive been burying things i do not wanna deal with and i know it isnt the right way to go about it...im trying to take control.. perhaps trying isnt the best way to say it.. because its only do or do not...these past few months have seemed over whelming and ive been ignoring it as if you can just whim away issues and they will be like oh we're bothering you? sure we'll just be on our way... i know it never works that way.. but if it did wouldnt life be easy?... nor worth it cause earning things makes them that much better....my birthday was a week ago and i cant say ive ever had "happy" birthdays per se but this year was just off.. i felt completely miserable and i know its because i havent moved more than a fork in months ..and the negative nancy in my head wants me to just lay down n relax and pretend everythings ok ...im struggling it sucks and im owning up to these moments because i refuse to let them have that power anymore... i learned recently that my mother was diagnosed with dementia and a touch of alzheimers... not that this is news to me.. my mother has been in and out of hospitals since i was 10... so i guess i missed out on alot of things other than the inside of er waiting rooms and various lobbies ....besides that our home is now lacking...the washer/dryer and range top have both broken down within 2 months of each other...quick meal fixes and laundromat trips has become my new go to ...on top of that im in school with 3 classes..one of them being college algebra -.- not my favorite subject... its become challenging to wake up with a positive mindset ...but i still maintain an optimistic outlook that things will somehow work out in one way or another...as one of my fave movies says "it can't rain all the time"


FInding strength within the pink

Friday, August 16, 2013

i've been having trouble for a while now...finding my worth.. that little voice we have can carry alot of weight and lately negative is all its been hinting at me nudging me with backhanded comments ...more and more i noticed i try to shut it up by occupying my hands with food to my face.. sure its bides its time for a while then its back at it..
when i bought my running shoes a while back ironically the only ones i loved were pink..and me by nature i loathe pink im not a girly girl by any means and i dont understand the gender based color we as women were given but now im learning to embrace it.. and be empowered by it...every time i go for a run i look at my shoes and kinda laugh at the irony i feel its a way of release ..i destress i clear my head... and i have a new running buddy i fostered a pitbull and shes a champ! she wakes me up n makes me get up n go regardless of what the little voice says its overpowered by a pair of puppy eyes a wagging tail and a pair of pink shoes! who knew?! emoticon
