Today's Kick in the Butt

Friday, July 13, 2012

I took yesterday off. Now if I want to reach my goals, I need to step it back up.



No more waiting for a miracle to happen. I'm gonna go out there and get one for myself.





It takes so little right now to get my motivation going in full swing. To get me on the right track for a day full of the right decisions. To motivate me to make every minute, every decision count. All it takes is a half hour of hard work. Once I've done that, I'm rearing to go with the rest of my day. I want to make every decision count to back up what I did that morning. Those endorphins are great little things, aren't they.



And what is today's step? It is to get on my shoes and get out there and run. C25K Week3Day3. Time to kick it's butt to the curb. 6min run, 1min walk repeat 4 times. Finish with a 2min run. You can do this. Heck, you finished the San Francisco Marathon last fall! This is a walk in the park compared to that right???

Okay, so no comparing with who I was. Yes, the 6min runs are getting harder. But I think my heart/lungs have adjusted again. I'm sure I can do it. The third set is always the hardest. Then the break between the third and fourth is only 30seconds. I know. What a cruel joke! But I KNOW I CAN DO IT!. I just need to believe in myself. And get out there before the heat of the day hits.



I'm not going to let this challenge stop me. I am stronger than it.





***UPDATE******
Back from my run. I kicked W3D3's butt. Done strong. 2.5miles. Avg HR was 143. Came home dripping wet. I usually don't sweat water, but I really pumped it out today. I usually get a crusty salty coating when I exercise.

    Way to go! I've discovered that it's the "hard parts" where I'm actually growing and getting stronger. If it's not hard, I'm not working out hard enough.

    Wow, I'm impressed that you ran the SF Marathon! I LOVE SF and married my husband there at the beautiful city hall. There was a women's marathon happening during the time we were there--it was pretty inspirational to see Union Square crammed full of fantastic women of all ages, shapes, and sizes there to run a marathon! Lots of pink, though....You can do this running stuff, you're a seasoned PRO! Training of all sorts is really a mind game. The hardest part for me is getting out the door! Get going, have a great run! emoticon emoticon

Day 10 Prebiotic - July 13

Friday, July 13, 2012

Hmmmm. Friday the 13th. I didn't even notice until I saw that on facebook this morning...

Anyhow, I'm still feeling pretty good. No major changes to anything. No body aches. No pains. My mood is good today.

Let's hope I can keep this good feeling going, right through my morning run.

Today is a good day

Thursday, July 12, 2012

I'm just sitting here this morning relaxing. I am waiting on a phone call for a job, so I'm not going to go out running just yet.

I was sitting on the couch, drinking a large (1.5L) bottle of water. Enjoying it actually. Legs stretched out. I realized I really like how my legs are starting to look again. Long. Tan. Starting to get toned again.

I need a pedicure. Heck, I need a manicure too. Good thing I can do both at home. Maybe that's what I'll do today.

I am feeling at peace with myself for the first time in a long time. Happy. And generally liking what I see. I still have some weight to loose - up to 30lbs more, but I'm starting to like what I see again.

I know I'm working hard for my results, and they are starting to show.

I'm thinking today might be a day to pamper me. I might go running later, but only to get out and get moving. Enjoy the sunshine. No training today. Just really connect with my thoughts, feelings, and the world around me.

I guess I should call in about that job offer. It's now almost 11am and I haven't heard. It'll be nice to know exactly what's being offered.

I think I'm ready to tackle today. I need to make the phone call. Then I'm going to spend today just pampering myself.

Emotional "stuff" I think I've found the words

Thursday, July 12, 2012

For the past few day's Lee's been much better. I wasn't able to put my finger on why he seemed so controlling, but I think I've got it figured out.

MONEY

He was on the verge of being laid off for weeks now. He know's I'm out of work. And my daughter is here now.

Well, on Monday he talked to his boss. He does not want to travel for work, so that is out. So his boss agreed to keep him "working" on a casual basis. As little jobs come up in town, Lee would take care of them. That way he could do the bathroom renovations, and still have some income coming in.

Well, yesterday he got even better news. He'll be working full time at a drag line just outside of town. It's FT work until November.

And suddenly he's in a much better mood. No more controlling issues. Wow. I don't know why it took me so long to see it, but I sure am glad I do now.

So the next time this controlling thing rears it's ugly head, I will come right out and tell him. I get that there is $$ stress, but trying to control my every move like this is only going to drive me away. Talk to me about the real issue. I'll let him know how close he came to loosing me this last time he pulled this kind of behavior on me too. He needs to understand I'm not kidding when I say it will drive me away.

So that's that. Now to find out about my job offer, and look into a new cell phone plan.

    My husband stresses out about $ in that same weird way. He gets very anxious and super bossy with me, and will pick fights over the strangest things. He works for himself, and in the music industry....so money will roll in for a bit, then there will be silence and no cash flow. It's stressful, I totally understand! I'm glad you figured this out, and I hope things will go better in the future.

    Money, or the lack of money, will cause all kinds of problems.

    good news. Hopefully you both know what the triggers are and take steps early next time. Job hassles really to affect people, and many people like to put on a brave front. Here's to success and abundance for both of you!
