Fatty MCCREEPER Creeperson

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

As I sit here this evening, I realize I have completely stopped taking care of my self again. Fast food, quick fating foods at dinner, soda (I quit drinking soda 10 years ago), what the hell is wrong with me?! I was so dedicated, eating , exercising, living! What makes a person go on this roller coaster ride?
Life gets a hold of you , that's what. I am a fulltime mommy, wife, and college student. If its not homework, its helping with kids homework. I spend my day in Chemistry and just dont want to think anymore, so hamburger helper is a easy thoughtless meal, yep sounds good. NO IT DOESNT!!! My energy is drained, my mind cant think anymore, my ass cant move off the couch once I get home, it is one excuse after the other.
I have people tell me and I read things about MAKING yourself do it????? Ummm, yeah doesnt work.
I feel tired and cant think, have no energy all because I am overweight!!! I get this, I get if something doesnt change I am destined to just keep racking up those pounds. Why cant I just take 1 hour, 60 minutes, 3600 seconds out of my day? Well, there is no excuse. So tomorrow I am taking 60 minutes out of morning and thinking, feeling and breathing me. I have the tools, I have the knowledge so now it is time learn to implement.
I can and I will defeat my inner fat girl. My healthy, fit girl will prevail!!

    Hang in there, you'll get back on track. You have a lot going on, and doing so many things at once can become frustrating. So start over and start small. Just start with small comfortable changes like cutting back on soda and drinking more water, eating whole wheat bread instead of white, baking chicken instead of frying it one time this week, and eating a piece of fresh fruit 2-3 times this week. Once you get used to those small changes, then add a few more. And try exercising for 10 minutes a day, 3 days this week. Dancing is a fun way to get in a little exercise. Take it from me, small changes will add up to big ones before you know it. emoticon emoticon

Today I am thankful for..

Tuesday, December 04, 2012

Today I am thankful for my eyes. They give me the ability to see all the beautiful little miricales that I am blessed with. My eyes give me the ability to see and chose what foods are going into my body. With out my eyes I could not see all of the amazingly beautiful things life has to offer and has given me. When I look into the mirror I am able to see that beautiful, smart, caring and compassionate woman standing in front me. I have the gift of knowing that my eyes have given me something that some are not capable of seeing, my life, my awesome life. I am not a size 2, muchless a size 7. But , I do see I am healthy and beautiful and life has and will continue to give me little miracles to watch, learn from and enjoy.

Learning to love myself.....

Sunday, December 02, 2012

For many years I looked in the mirror and told myself that I love me, however I never felt it. The feeling of love is hard to come by , muchless feeling for yourself. Today, I made a commitment to love myself. I will pick out one thing a day to really focus on loving about myself. Today, I pick my brain.
My brain is the driving force of my body. I really dont listen to it much, my dang heart keeps over ruling it emoticon But today, I am loving and listening to my brain! No more feeling inadequate, sad, mad, or simply helpless against food and exercise. I am nothing short of a miracle. So why not act like it, why not live my life like it? Donuts, Candy, Chips, that really not so good for you stuff, will not rule my life anymore. I will not eat for comfort or because I am bored. I will let my brain show me and lead me. By doing this I will be able to eat smart, get up and move my body, and most all really know that I am worth it. By loving my brain, I am learning how to strengthen my heart, By loving my brain I will make better decisions, By loving my brain I will not only be able to love with my heart but understand that love, understand that love I have for food. Food is energy, not comfort. Today I learned to understand that.

Today is the only day I have...

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

I can not redo my past and I can not predict my future. However, I can control today. Life is just that, one day at a time. If we focus on today we would have no problems with success. It is when we start our what if's and should of's. Beating ourselves up or focusing only on what we are GOING to do, instesad of what we are DOING, only sets us up for failure. So many times, I have looked backed and cried, got angry, or overwhelmed, something I consider stupid, and I realize how much time or emptional energy I wasted on something I can not change. When I stop and think about what I am going to do in the next 30 or 60 minute intervals, or plan my day with a list, I am bound to succeed. And I do! Our emotions are simply our heart playing tricks on our mind. Once we learn to gain control and use our mind, not our heart for decisions, we become this power force that no one wants to mess with, especially that Krispy Kream dohnut emoticon

Today, instead of standing at the counter, or sitting on the couch, thinking with your heart, about how you are just to tired or stressed out or sad to do 10 situps or pushups, USE your MIND to put that heart in check, get on the floor and make it happen. If we dont keep our heart healthy we wont be able to use it anyway emoticon A healthy mind, that we can speak with, hear with, act with, and live with comes first. It is only natrual that a healthy heart will follow, giving us the ability to love only in happiness, a happiness we found within ourself. emoticon

    emoticon emoticon Great blog. Life is a gift and we shouldn't waste a single day, wishing things were different or waiting for "tomorrow" today may easily be all we have and we need to make it count.

    Working out is a good idea. I hate getting on the floor though. Need to get over it. If I could lose a little more weight, maybe it wouldn't be so hard to get back up off the floor.

Day one a success!!

Saturday, November 24, 2012

Life is amazing, and if we look around we can see all the little miracles life has given us, and one of them is our health. I am an active participant in ruining that or making it better and better. My choices everyday affect that. I chose good choices, I chose veggies, fruits, and water everyday! I chose to NOT sit on the couch and complain about being "fat", I chose to get up and move my butt for at least 30 minutes a day.It was my choice to get "fat", well it is my choice from here on out to get "fit". I will be 40 and fabulous!!!!!!

We teach our children that life is about choices, so it is time to quit being a hypocrite. We can change the way America eats and exercises, one family at a time. And it starts with ours.

    Here's a way to keep things moving in the right direction since we all want to stay fit and motivated during the busy (and calorie-filled) holiday season by pledging to run at least one mile every day, Thanksgiving through New Year's.

Pledge to run/walk at least one mile every day, from Thanksgiving (that's Thursday, November 22) through New Year's Day. Track your mileage and keep it moving!

    Taking control of our lives is so important and hard. It takes some courage to finally lose the weight, quit smoking, put down the bottle, spend responsibly, or what ever it is we need to work at to live a more normal life.

    Just keep in mind that you are NOT dieting, you are making a change of lifestyle. It works!!

Keep on keeping on...you'll do great! emoticon
