Back at it!

Monday, January 02, 2012

Ok so over the past 2 years I have gained back 20 of the pounds I worked so hard to lose simply because I got lazy due to school and have become super inactive. The motivation I had at the time was amazing, I felt awesome and it is all gone. I am digging to find it again. I struggle to find the energy to walk on the treadmill but I discovered something yesterday. After hearing me feel sorry for myself my hisband said just get on the treadmill and walk, dont run, dont increase the incline just walk. I was setting myself up for failure by getting on the treadmill and trying to run or do things at the level I was when I was active and 200 pounds lighter and so didnt want to get back on after not being able to do what I could in the past. So I got on the treadmill and walked for 20 minutes and afterwards felt less achy, more energentic and clear minded. Its amazing how much better you feel after making yourself move around.

    Welcome back! I totally understand what you have gone through. I keep having this weight roller coaster. I think it is great that your husband is being supportive. Take advantage.

Sounds like you're off to a great start this year. Let me know if you need a workout buddy!

Keep up the great work. This is a new year, time for a NEW YOU!

Just plain lazy

Friday, October 02, 2009

Okay so I have been a real slacker lately. School is stressing me out so I end up stress eating which I never new I did by the way. Gained three lbs because of this and not having the time to get out and walk. I go to work, come home and have a 2 year old and a 12 year old needing attention and tests to study for and papers to write, dinner to make, cleaning to do. AHHHHHH!!!!! By the time I am done with all of these things I am exhausted. I need to find that motivation that I once had. Hubby is finally back to work and feeling great. So maybe it is relief eating as well???? Anyway, whatever my problem is I need to find the me that always made time for myself which I have not been doing lately. I want to get to my goal weight which is 20lbs away, I know how to do this. I just can't kick it into gear... Ughh!

  Glad to hear your Hubby is doing better. we all have set backs. When I get stressed, I try to take a walk to clear my head and keep me out of the pantry. If I can't walk, I chew gum, that seems to help also. Stick with it!!
