I am trying.....

Tuesday, September 18, 2012

I really am trying, but I just cant get the solid footing. I am exercising more and mostly eating right, but I still keep eating too much. I am an emotional eater and right now about anything is setting me off.

I hope that everything settles out for a while and I can get the toehold I need and then run with it.

    Sometimes it's as important to know what's eating you as what you're eating.
If therapy isn't your thing, then maybe you could talk to a trusted religious leader (from your own religion). Most faiths, as I understand it, offer some kind of counseling.
Even if there are no suggested solutions, sometimes the act of expressing your thoughts and worries out loud can help clarify them enough to suggest a solution or a way around the issue.
Good luck!

    Hand in there. I know you know this so I will just remind you. I seems you are not tracking your food intake religiously. To me that is very important. You know you can run for half a day, eat a couple Twinkies and you haven't gained a thing. You've done it before so you can do it.

Drill this past weekend

Monday, September 10, 2012

I didn't eat well this weekend, but worked hard and between driving and being in the field, probably only got 4 hours sleep over a 48 hour time period.

Right now, I haven't eaten anything today, which I know is bad, but I don't feel like eating anything.

    Sometimes we really just dont feel like eating...but eventually our body says hey , i want some food...better to just go ahead and find something good before you get to the point u will eat junk and lots of it
i know you can get thru anything.

    It sounds like you need a good meal and a good night's sleep! Good luck with both of these!!!

    Sometimes you have to eat whether you're hungry or not to avoid chasing the hunger later.

You'll figure it out. All best to you always. emoticon

Rough weekend (eating)

Tuesday, September 04, 2012

I didnt eat right this weekend. I tried to start off the days right most of the time, but with it being a holiday weekend and such, just kept failing. I do better when have a routine and schedule, but couldn't force myself out of bed to go exercise this morning and now feeling drowsy at the office.

I am going to eat right today, and hopefully be back to 100% exercising tomorrow.

    We all have days like that...holidays or long weekends are the worst, because we do get out of our comfort zone.
The fact that you know the problem and how to fix it is enough for now. You will get back on track.

Trying again

Saturday, September 01, 2012

I am really working on everything right now. Feels like too much. But I am just taking things one thing at a time and going from there.

    I had that same talk with myself today! Somewhere along the way, I lost my drive to become and stay a healthy person ~ especially with my eating. Gotta get things under control. I've gained 10 pounds since December and MUST get that off plus lots more!

Here's to a happy, healthy September for both of us! Let's kick it into gear and just do it!

    You got that right: one thing at a time, set priorities. None of us can do *everything* all the time. Keep blogging whenever you have time.

    that is all you can do friend. sitting on my front porch earlier today, i was watching the dry leaves fall and float to the ground, while spring is usually a time of new beginnings, i see fall as a time of new beginnings....but anytime can be if we are ready to make them.

    Keep going brother. I believe in you. I hope Sammie is better. I understand that Sammie is a member of your family and I will keep you both in my prayers. It's so good to see that you're still blogging. I guess I should update my Spark Family with a few blogs too. Keep going one task at a time, otherwise it's drive you nuts!!

Be well and stay focused. I'm in your corner and rooting for you every step of the way. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Don't let it get to you: just "ride the wave" and do what you can in the moment.

P. S.
I hope your dog is better.

Rough night

Wednesday, June 06, 2012

Last night was rough. My dog Sammie is very sick and I was sure she would be dead this morning. I know she is old, but she has been my best friend through some trying times. I hope she gets better and was just that she got too hot. I didn't feel like running this morning. I want to run on Saturday morning anyway, either a 5K or long run around Wilson's Creek.

    I understand why you wouldn't want to run. Getting up and started on exercising is rough without enthusiasm, which is hard to come by if you're upset or depressed.
Here's a strange fact, though: if you can force yourself up & running, the very act of exercise will make you feel better. They call it "runners high" for a reason.
