.......it's about getting up.
Make yourself a priority.
Beat back that negative voice.
You are not a failure, you are more than a number on the scale. You ARE worth it, you CAN do this, you are going to do this!
I must explain, I was taking notes from a blogtalk show by Jonathan Roche and the fact is, I need to repeat these things to myself until they become ingrained in my thinking! He is a wonderful encouraging personal trainer and he runs a .com called, no excuses workout dot com

I really hate to say this out loud, or blog it, for all to see, or even just for me to have to look at, but I always, without fail, sabotage myself. I am a binge eater. I do good, and do good, and do good, and then I binge eat and undo all the benefit that I had gained. Every time. Then I try to make up for it by skipping meals, or going too low on my calories. And of course, that backfires as well. I just cannot seem to stay on a balanced level of caloric intake.
This has been my struggle my whole life. As a young person, I used to drink like that. Very dangerous. Then I'd swear the next day "ohhh, I am never drinking again" only to do it again, and again and again. (so thankful that God helped me pull out of that lifestyle) but here I am doing it with food now.
I really don't understand.
This morning I had a healthy b-fast before church, a bagel and 2 T of light cream cheese, and a greek yogurt. But when we got home from church, I had 3 leftover b-fast sausages as I made the kids lunch, then 2 bagels with cream cheese and a banana, so now I am down to 10-350 calories for the day.
My challenge team is staying on track for our food and calorie intake, so the only thing I can do is try to stay in my range.

June is a perfect month to begin monthly goals. My wedding anniversary is June 1st. My favorite person in the world's b-day is/was June 3rd (my grandma. She would be 101. She had such a hard sad life and yet persevered through it all.)
I am signed up for a 5Krun/walk this Saturday. It was a spur of the moment decision, but I needed that to get my butt in gear. Also, I *think* I might have bipolar. A slight case anyway. I've struggles with depression, good days/ bad days, just like everyone I think. But things have been said to me, or things happen and I have been thinking on them. I have most of the markers so anyway, I decided I need to exercise as part of my dealing with it, and life in general. Heck, if I am wrong, not a prob. :-)
1) Finish 5K!
2) Participate in my Starfish Challenge daily. I will just "make" the time. I can not use time as an excuse!
3) Exercise as if it is my JOB. Part time of course :-), but daily. My emotional health does depend on it! And I love exercise when I do it regularly.
4) work in the yard more! It's so easy for me to get carried away with housework IN the house, then I never get out, so I will make it a point to do something outside every day. If it's rainy, maybe just going to the mall or museum too. I have to plan some rainy day activities.

I started off with so much gusto and slowly it has been leaving me. I have not been making good choices. Why did I decide NOT to work out yesterday.? I know I feel better when I work out. I KNOW I feel better when I eat good.
I seem to have alot of excuses...
I'm too old for this.
My 4 yr old needs to ____. (nap, eat, go potty, etc)
I need to snap out of this. Will is not feeling well today so I am going to try to do an exercise video. I will try to stay in my calorie range today. And post on some blogs. That usually helps.....
Wish me luck!

I recently read an article that challenged me to make a list of what are the results if I keep gaining weight. Or how will things be. Very interesting. Usually I hear to make a list of how it would be to lose weight.
So, I know that I will have a harder time bending over. I know my asthma will be back. Sex, hmmm, not so much. Definitely have to go to a size 16 and up. BP would go up...it's just ebbing into the high zone.
I'm going to keep thinking about this. Because I know I don't want to go there. And I KNOW that would be the result.
