I am starting a streak

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

I am starting a streak of my own, I am going to exercise daily and keep at it, today is day one and I did a 12 minute Coach Nicole cardio/strength combination. I am so disappointed with myself and the fact that I quit exercising a month to a month and a half ago. I was doing so well and then just started talking myself out of it. And I lost so much that I had gained. The 12 minute video, was easy peasy for me and today it was challenging. I am a strong person and I am active at work, it is just amazing to me that letting go for that period of time changed so much for me. I am keeping up with appropriate eating, but I am losing strength and that disappoints me. I will keep up this streak and I will continue to exercise. I am at the way upper limit of my maintenance weight and I will NOT let it go up further. I have maintained this for 2 years now and I am not letting all that hard work get away from me. I have already let the year I put into exercising get away from me in a short period of time. Let that be my lesson. I will continue this tomorrow. I will be strong.

Exercise, good food and good health

Sunday, January 20, 2013

I am blessed with very good health, even when I was overweight, I wasn't sick a lot and I am glad for that. Now that I am in an appropriate weight range, I catch an occasional cold, but they are few and far between. I did get this Influenza that is going around, but I haven't had Influenza for probably 10 years or better. So I figure I was due.

I also have been exercising more than I used to. I figure it is also good for me. I am getting to the point that while I still don't love it, I do see it as necessary and a good thing for me. Honestly, my goal is to be able to do a pull-up. I get extremely frustrated that my overweight husband can even do a pull-up. I also want to be able to do 10 push-ups on my toes. I watch my 10yo daughter do them effortlessly and that frustrates me. I have a job where I need a lot of upper body strength and I felt that I was strong upper body wise. But alas I cannot do a pull-up or push-ups on my toes. Blah, but that is what I am working towards. When I started the exercise portion of this journey, I couldn't do a crunch either. So I will make progress and before I know it, I will do a pull-up.

Hungry again

Saturday, January 12, 2013

Here I am again, hungry in the time leading up to dinner. I don't normally snack while I am cooking, at least until I am done cooking and then whammo. I have already exhausted my supply of carrots and have eaten enough to make my skin orange. You would think they would fill me a little bit. But no such help there and if I go into the kitchen and grab an 80 calorie cheese stick, I will start an avalanche I cannot stop. So I am avoiding it by writing about it instead. I can do this I know I can. I just get annoyed that it is always before supper and I want to snack it away in the worst way. But I will continue to be strong and I will beat this snack attack. I know I am strong enough to do this. It's not thirst either, because I have drank more than my 8 cups already today and I am still drinking. I am just going to ride this out and I am stronger than the snack attack.

    I have the same problem. I feel it's a habit. I've tried to substitute one habit for another. So I make it a habit to read while cooking or catch up on emails. The kitchen and computer are extremely close.

Good luck! Its tough changing a habit.

I am truly hungry right now and resisting snacking is what I need to do until dinner time. I know I could snack on something healthy, but at this time something healthy leads to something unhealthy and that is what I want to avoid. I get frustrated that sometimes the munchies hit so hard right before dinnertime and I just want to snack. I avoid the kitchen right now and I have drank all my water requirements for the day. I usually try to snack on a cheese stick or fruit, but I still get sucked into the snack drawer where the crackers and pretzels and such are kept and that is where the problem is. The sodium levels usually cause me problems and I don't need the crackers. I don't want to munch I want to wait until dinner time and eat then. I can do this I am stronger than a snack. I know i can do this.

    Ah, yes. Those pre-dinner jtters! I think that is what appetizers are all about. I am not sure. I wonder if there is anything such as a delightful, healthy, appetizer?

    I hear ya! I am premenstrual and all I can think about is food. I am not hungry physically like you are just craving food. Period. No pun intended!

I hope you make it to dinner and that you don't overeat because you had to wait.

You are right to spark when you want to eat.

Keep up the good work.

Can I keep it going?

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

I have exercised etch day this week for 30 minutes or more. I find the time to do this, mostly because we are a little slower right now at work. I am salaried, so I can take some time during the day for exercise if I want to. So I am getting it done and I feel good after I do it. So I am going to try to keep this up during this slower season and see if I can do more than the 10 minutes a day I have been doing lately. I feel pretty good and my eating has been under control.

I want to feel strong and I already feel healthy. I want my girls to understand what good health is about and I want them to be healthy. I can do this for them. They have a streak going right now of doing some yoga everyday after school. They don't do the poses all correctly, but I don't either and I figure trying is better than nothing. They do some yoga for their TV time in the evenings and this is their choice, so I consider this a win. Life is good.
