Surprise Surprise (a little gomer pyle)

Sunday, October 04, 2009

Well I dreaded it

That scale lurking in the laundry room

But I did it

I stepped up and held my breath

I had a hungry week so I thought for sure I gained

and it was down 7.2 pounds from last week

I literally grabbed by butt and said "Where?"

I got off, pushed the scale over a bit and stepped back on

Same,, hmmmmm

Could it be that I did something right this week?

Again I got off and pushed the scale over a bit and stepped back on

The exact same number, I think the scale is broke

Got off put the laundry basket on, 10 lbs okay, scale is reasonable, get back on w/o laundry and darn tooting I am down 7.2 lbs

Last week I was up 3 lbs and so furious about it

This week I tracked everything I ate even if I was a bit over

I exercised everyday, making sure to meet my minimum calorie burn, if I was short one day it was added to the next

Will I make that much loss this week, probably not, but I will still make the effort

Wish me luck and loss

emoticon emoticonIsn't it a good feeling when you have positive results from the scale? Good job!

emoticonYou took it 1 day at a time and you did a great job this past week.

Keep it up, you should be proud of yourself.

    That's awesome though!! Probably lost a bit of water weight amongst it, but it's a very good start!! I know I'd be doing the same thing as you and checking that scale multiple times, but eventually seeing is believing ;) Keep up the work, you're worth it!

I can blindly follow a plan and have success

If I divert from the plan I have a hard time getting back

Exercise, I have it on a plan, but I have days that the only goal is to burn a certain number of calories doesn't matter if it's biking, dancing, walking...just calories

Food, Give me a menu plan and I can stick to it....adjust a little such as saving a little lunch for an afternoon snack, or taking a little of dinner for an afternoon snack and then only eating what's for dinner but give me a fridge with no plan and I am fat woman!

Studying, same thing

Why can't people understand that about me?

I need my plans to be successful

Some days

Tuesday, September 29, 2009

They're the devil

And others an angel

They're our significant others

I would like to kill mine today

His turn to cook dinner....not ready until 7:30, ridiculous

Then he starts teasing me while I am working out

Then he sits there eating chips while I am working out

He deserves a good kick in the rear

But my legs are too sore to do it

Being an Angel (messenger)

Saturday, September 26, 2009

Yes you can

Yes you are

When you listen to what God is telling you to do

You become his angel or messenger

Sometimes you feel silly telling other people the good, right and true things that you do but the telling of obeying God is being an angel or messenger all over again.

On Wednesday my co-worker mentioned she wanted to take Friday off and I said that I was thinking about taking Friday off - not like me at all. Since one of us needs to be available if she says she is taking time off I just work but for some reason my mouth was ahead of me. She was able to change her schedule to take Monday off instead. Interesting how that worked.

Then Thursday I got that God voice telling me to go visit my friend who lives quite a drive away. Every reason / excuse I came up with not to was washed away by divine intervention. I even tried to delay it to the weekend and again the reasons / excuses were washed away. So Friday I went to my friends house, we did a few mundane things but mostly we talked and reviewed. Turned out she really needed the time and the story of how God pushed me there. And I needed the time too.

Thank you God for my beautiful friends. Thank you for erasing my reasons / excuses for not doing what you want. Today I am healthier emotionally and stronger for my journey because of the angel (messenger) mission you sent me on.

Your angel inspired you to be an ANGEL.

Sometimes that inner voice really is leading you to do something. It is good that you listen.....there usually a reason.

We never know why but it is good to believe that you need to follow through with that inner feeling.

Thank you for sharing that wonderful story.

Making Strides

Wednesday, September 23, 2009

Takes only one step at a time

Say you have five major activities in your life


Clean house

Take Care of Kids



If you improve one step in each area then you only took 5 can do that can't you?

What step will you take today?

Commit yourself to just one step and eventually you will have done 5 and then you can start another step in each area

Did someone write a book about this?

    Prolly - sounds like you are channelling Dave Ramsey's Total Money Makeover and Fly Lady principles. You're doing GREAT!
