change in thought process

Friday, May 04, 2012

I have decided that my focus on weight loss is not enough. i go down and back up over and over! So i have decided to try and change my thought process. Instead of keeping my focus on trying to lose x number of pounds in x period of time, I am going to try to set healthy goals. So these are my 2 goals:

1. I am going to work out for at least 45 mins at least 3x a week
2. I am going to cut pop out (again) and increase my water intake.

If I am able to maintain these goals for 2 weeks then I am going to buy myself something. (not food related).

    Those are great goals. We need to tackle our change to a new, healthy lifestyle by taking baby steps. Step by step and day by day and you'll reach your goals. Giving up pop can be a struggle, but it's a great goal. I'm currently on a ten-day streak since I had my last pop. :-) emoticon

Goal Met

Tuesday, February 09, 2010

Well, I set a goal of : for 14 days I would not have pop, I would drink my 8 glasses of water, not to go over my calories, and would exercise each day that I am not working. And I did it! I had headaches the first few days, and the cravings were bad at times....but I did it! I can feel a difference already! The cravings are gone... And I lost 8 pounds in the process!

Now its on to the next 2 weeks......

    emoticon 8 lbs is a great loss. Now as it slows, don't get discouraged as it is bound to happen. You've gotten thru the hardest hurdle, in my opinion, the detox from the soda. Will be cheering you on!

shopping trip motivation kick start

Saturday, January 16, 2010

Well, the shopping trip was very hard on me. I actually started crying in the dressing room. I said to my bf, "I am huge"... his reply in a very nice tone was, "you are the only one who can change that". How true, how true.........if I am not happy with how big my butt looks in my pants... I know how to make it smaller. No one else is putting the food in my mouth, or keeping me strapped down to a chair rather than on the treadmill....

So today, when I got up....I dug out my old weights, and exercise videos that have been packed away for about 3 years now.... and did 30 mins of pilates and then 45 mins on the treadmill. AND I feel, I feel GREAT!

So this is day 1....... tomorrow is day 2.........going for my streak !

    Congratulations! Starting is the hardest part but once you get going, you'll make it a part of your daily existence and it has a snowball effect. You'll find yourself stopping and making a conscience decision on that cookie or candy bar. I could so relate to your blog but it takes time and effort. I've no doubt YOU can and WILL do it. You have friends who will help you along this journey and sounds like a pretty great BF as well. Looking forward to hearing about your day 2.

  Way to go girlfriend!! I hate trying on clothes, those mirrors are cruel. I always bring them home, seems easier that way! Go for the STREAK! Whatever that means, I guess I need to read the book! I just know it's a good thing!

Not looking forward to tonight

Friday, January 15, 2010

I need to go shopping for an outfit for a work party tomorrow evening. I have outgrown all my "nice" clothes. I had told my self that I would not buy any bigger clothes...I have a closet full of clothes......they just don't fit. The last time I lost weight I went through and got rid of all my "big" clothes so that I would know I could not gain weight back. I told my self I would not buy any larger clothes again... well that was 3 years ago, and 3 sizes ago. GGGRRRRR.

Shopping depresses me now. It's fun when you look good in what you are shopping for....but when you don't.... not a good time.

But I will go, and buy a "nice outfit"... so that I do not show up naked.... and try to make sure it is my last BIG outfit.

    Try looking at this as the beginning of the end of sorts. You'll get there. Focus on something else and try and enjoy this event and not worry about anything else.

one day at a time

Wednesday, January 13, 2010

It has been so hard for me to get back into focus! I don't understand it! I know that I feel better when I am eating healthier and working out! But since the long break ,over Christmas and vacation, I just have not seemed to be able to get the two going back together consistently! Why is that?

So today I was off, and put off working out until late in the day...but I did it! I finally got back on the treadmill and felt pretty darn good when it was over... now just to keep going one day at a time!

    Great going! Just look at it as your beginning of a streak. Get a two days together and then shoot for that third and challenge yourself the next day and see how long you can keep your 'streak' going. One of the tidbits from the Spark book I really seemed to grasp.

You can do it!!!
