Just a little further

Thursday, September 17, 2009

So each day

I am trying to do just a little more each time

Yesterday I got that pain in the neck that says a migraine is coming and I had to stop

But today I was able to go further

That's what it takes

Just a little more each day

How does it feel? WARNING: show talk

Wednesday, September 16, 2009

How does it feel to be the last one picked, or rather the default because there is no such as picked when you are the only remaining?

How does it feel to walk into a room and everyone scatters?

How does it feel to walk in on a laughing conversation and everything is silent?

Bet you know at least one of these

Bet the folks on season 8 know them well

Now how does it feel the first time you push yourself further than you thought possible and still be breathing on your feet?

How does it feel when you walk in a room and someone says Wow you're really looking good?

How does it feel when someone gives you hand to get back on the wagon?

Bet everyone of us knows how those feel

Bet we can help someone else feel the joy of the last 3 instead of the pain of the first 3

{my thoughts after season 8 show 1}

I am Tracy
Never really tried
But man I need this
I will push myself
to make it
Now I am down
I need a hand up
Will you be that hand?


Getting back in the groove

I did well today

Stayed in my calorie limits

Went for a walk

Then mowed the lawn

Then did team chat

I should get a brownie for that

but I'll pass emoticon

    My husband wore his Heart Rate Monitor while mowing the lawn ( and we live on a zero lot line so it's essentially a postage stamp size! Anyway, it takes him like an hour to do that and the the hot Florida sun...he burned 630 calories, so you GO GIRL!

Things will come and things will go

So I set out to make today the first day of my plan

So many chores to do

Grocery shopping a bit for those vegies and fruits

and making the plan for the week

I forgot one little thing

Everytime I get a plan someone throws a wrench in it

but I will be okay

Plans are a guideline to help you reach your goal

They must be flexible or you will never make it

So flex we will

We have all we need to bend and sway

Eventually the coming things will be part of the plan

It just seems so always work that way doesn't it? I guess we just need to figure out a way to work around these little challenges that get in our way and go can do it...we can do it.

So I am trying to figure out how to align my schedule with getting back into the groove with SP. I go to the start page with all the goals and such and find that no matter how I set those goals and charts I am not happy with where I am projected to be.

I am a schedule, goals, plans person, I do well with them, without them I falter and fall.

Even then sometimes they ain't good...30 day ab project, my abs stuck out further - they were not flatter and I did it exactly right

30 day shred didn't really help that much

the 30 day plan to be running by the end...had no support, didn't realize how much I needed it

they say it takes 30 days to make / break a habit

why ain't I sticking with it...disappointment

I am not happy with my progress

I am not happy with the way I let others interfere with my progress

How can I fix this?

    It isn't easy. You can't give up. You made a good start, don't let yourself convince yourself you didn't. I feel the same way. The main thing is they are telling me I am not eating enough to lose weight. Anyone and everyone I tell that to just looks at me like I am crazy.I take more medicine than I want, mostly depressants. When I weigh at TOPS everyone is sure that I am doing everything wrong. No one but me believes how hard I am trying. I live with my mother because of epilepsy, she isn't any support, the people at TOPS aren't the people at SPARKS are. Now my sister was just diagnosed with cirhosis so she isn't in any shape to ask for support. We just have to find the Sparks teams that are the best and make friends and then get support there. We have to be the main support for ourselves.
One of the main things that I did that helped me, was I got a piece of poster board and a journal from a craft store. I started writing in the journal all of the compliments that I got. (it helps to date them all) My mother said when I started. You are getting a lot more compliments than you realize. That was nearly two months ago. The only thing she said that could be half-way a compliment is I am glad you remembered to take out the trash. I copied all of the compliments from the comments on my SPARK page. I wrote all of the compliments that I remembered from the past. Then I started writing them on the poster board in pretty colors. When I get depressed I don't have to read them, just look at them, but I can stop and read them and they make me feel better. I keep adding to them. I need to copy some more.I would say that I can accept support from someone, but I better not count on anyone or I might get awfully diappointed. I have always when I have said anything that could be considered at all negative to anyone said two things that were positive, but most people don't think that way. You are a good person. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise,
You can change and when you do you will be happy. They will notice, it may take them longer than it should, but they will notice. So celebrate with a new shirt for yourself. You deserve it. Your Friend, Amy emoticon
