Where did my spark go?

Wednesday, September 15, 2010

OK, I have no idea what is wrong with me. I'm not motivated AT ALL! I need to get my run in or I won't be able to complete week 3, again. I just don't want to move. The weather outside is frightful and my bed is so delightful...

I want to be fitter. I want to be skinny and wear a bikini. I do, I want it, but somehow I keep messing things up by eating the wrong things (this past week has been terrible!) or leaving my workout too late and then I run out of time to do it.

If you stole my spark, please give it back. I'm sure it wants me back, just like I want it back!

    Tell yourself you'll just go for a walk. That works for me. I always end up in a run within 5 minutes.

    This could be because winter is on its way and lack of sun. my mother and I are convinced we should be hibernating by this time of year! but as someone once said, you have to have the bad days to appreciate the good! Have a gr8 day.

    In the wise words of Cher from Moonstruck..."SNAP OUT OF IT!" Ok, so you had a bad week, get right back up, get back on track, don't dwell so much on the mistakes. Imagine if you spent as much time visualizing success as you have spent on feeling bad and regretful. You can do this, we all can do this. Slow and steady wins the race girlfriend, you are strong, just keep chipping away! emoticon

    Only you can find your spark. Only you can stay motivated. Only you can stand tall, look good, as if you ought to be in Hollywood. That said, get off you "duff" and hit the exercise trail hard. That said, eat smartly and healthy. It's there for the taking. Don't talk yourself out of it.

    Maybe it was because you were trying to fit too much into the day. I saw that you are quitting your job tonight - perhaps you will find the energy and your Spark again:-)

Remember this, too ....... SKINNY is NOT pretty OR healthy!

I'm walking on Sparkshine....

Wednesday, September 15, 2010

That title is bad, even for me!

Right, breakfast is going to be eggs on toast. Organic, free range eggs that were free! Thanks mother in law! I scramble 2 eggs with a bit of soy milk and salt and pepper and then I microwave them in 30 second bursts until they are cooked. Quick and easy brekkie!

No idea what lunch will be yet, I'll have to have a look in the freezer. I know there isn't much fresh. There is still corn (I'm a sucker for specials!)

Exercise will be 30DS and W3D2. It will be a very soggy run if it doesn't stop raining, but I have to get it done!

I may also visit my aunty today. I luvs her but she is a busy lady! Wonder if she is free!?

Didn't meet my goals, but....(pics)

Wednesday, September 15, 2010

I went for a nice walk with the boyfriend to the Waitakere dam and back. It was lovely and we got some great view (and pics). He enjoyed himself so much he wants to go for more walks with me emoticon

Picture tour of my walk:

A large Kauri tree

Tree lined path

Breathtaking views

The dam

Huge hill (the first of 4-5 on the way back up. I'm proud that I did all the hills and didn't die!)

    I miss New Zealand! sigh. There was some beautiful places to walk in Wellington when I was living there. I also really enjoyed hiking in the Remarkables on the South Island too. Glad your boyfriend was there to share the beautiful scenery with you.

Hello, new day!

Tuesday, September 14, 2010

Hello, new day! Hello dry weather! Hello Sparkpeople!

Right, my breakfast today was leftover pad thai. Yep. In the tracker, 400 calories, and it is counting as my breakfast and morning snack so I'm OK with it. Its not the most terrible food in the world, but not something I should have more then once a month. So it is gone and eaten and I feel good about myself so far.

Lunch will be home cooked and WILL involve greens. I have corn in the fridge....Hmmm...Yes, lunch will involve corn! Dinner will, again, be home cooked and involve greens. Lets get back on track people!

Exercise today will be W3 D2 of c25K and I will attempt to get the 30 day shred in there as well. I will eat better before my run and that will hopefully help me get through my work out with energy and help keep me strong until the end.

Have a good day everyone!
