2nd Week of BLC is really my 1st Week

Saturday, March 19, 2011

Wow I forgot how hard you had to work for these challenges...but I'm really, really glad that I'm back with it. Appeals to my competitive sidee...and it really has helped me to get myself focused!

Luved the recommendation about doing a set of ST exercise everytime you go to the bathroom...since I drink a ton of water a day...I'm getting in aloooootttt of extra exercise!!!! Guess you have to do what you have to do...when you can...to make this journey a success.

Looking forward to next week!

Motivation for the Summer!

Tuesday, May 25, 2010

Wow summer has come in with a roar...and I feel like I am still playing at getting this right. But I know that since procrastination seems to be my best friend right now I need to make myself more accountable. I also need to work on my motivation. It's not just enough to say the words...I have to do the work too!!!

Accountability:
1. I will record every morsel, lick, and taste that passes these lips.
2. Eat nothing that I do not know the calorie count....no more guesstimating
3. Exercise is not for fun...it's a necessity...5 day's a week minimum...

Motivation:
1. I need to write down specific goals
2. Develop rewards for when I meet specific goals to keep me focused
3. Talk to my family...let them know that I need their help and quit trying to hide what I'm doing.
4. Focus on consistency...in meeting my needs and desires.
5. Re-evaluate my goals weekly.

Somehow it just seems more concrete when I see it in writing. And saying it to y'all puts the extra focus in for me. I'm glad for a place where I feel like I can put the commitment out there and you all understand the why's and wherefore's.

Wish me luck!! Sheree

    I disagree with exercise is not for fun... if you don't enjoy it you need to find something you like... I like going in the water... swimming and treading water is fun...for you dancing is fun... go for what you enjoy

    Way to go Sheree! You really sound like youve got it together girl! You reminded me of a training class I went to here that my job provided for free and it really helps. I was called establishing objectives and reaching goals for success. I wish there was a way that I could get all that paperwork I had from that class to you cause it helps WAY MUCHO! Maybe you could help me think of a way to do it. Anyway you go girl and i am so proud of you, Keep up the good work! Yay!

    I came to many of the same conclusions you mention in your post. I've been thinking about my final goal and declared that when I started back up with SP but the rest of my goals were very ambiguous. I couldn't really pin them down and I didn't want to write them down because then I have to figure out what were and how I would achieve them.

So I bought myself a journal and promised myself that I wouldn't do the self-censoring thing that I usually do and just let my thoughts and feelings flow - no matter what they are. I had to promise myself that it would stay private and that would help me to feel comfortable writing all those thoughts down.

Today, I put my goals through the end of June in my journal. They aren't anything earth shattering but I had to push myself to start. I don't have any rewards attached to them, but I'd like to. I have a hard time doing anything for myself so that's one of the things that was holding me up. I will try to determine those rewards before the end of the day.

Congrats on writing your post and declaring your intentions. And sorry for commenting enough for another blog post!!

Excited but nervous too...

Saturday, April 17, 2010

I finally got my cast off this week. Yeah!!! It's been forever. And I have my first dance lesson tomorrow in 4 months. I am so excited...just hope my foot and ankle hold up. If all goes well I will be competing again in May for my first qualifer.

While I am excited I am way nervous too...I haven't been on the floor in 4 months, AND I'm kinda scared of getting hurt again. I know I have to take the chance...dance is a big part of my life. I worried about it so much that I didn't sleep last night. I know it sounds silly...but when I got hurt...it was so sudden and so unexpected...all of a sudden everything just was a blur of pain. And I can't seem to let that feeling go.

Also, I haven't lost the weight I thought I would while I was healing and rehabbing...and I'm a little embarassed that I'm going back on the floor this size. I'm not going to let any of this stop me of course...but my concerns are really dimming my joy a bit.

OK..just needed to let it out...thanks for listening.

Sheree

So, so ready for the weekend.

Friday, April 16, 2010

It's been a long week. Feel like everytime I turn around that some new "challenge" pops up. I am in desperate need of some down time.

On a good note...weighed in this morning and happy to report another loss...another 2 pounds. Seems small but lordy did it feel great.

I am really starting to enjoy the "healthier" eating part of this program. I'm finding it a challenge to be creative...but thats fun too! And with the farm down the street I get such a variety of fresh, homegrown fruits and veggies that I'm never bored.

Will work to stay on plan this weekend...would really like to see the scale continue the downward turn...truly a great motivator.

Sheree

Motivation

Tuesday, April 13, 2010

After several weeks of seeing no results...I am finally seeing a little light. It's amazing how a 2 pounds loss can re-spark the movtivation to help you keep going on. Folks kept saying I looked like I was losing but the scale was not moving. It was getting pretty hard to handle. So now I can't wait to see the next 2...woohoo!!!

    Yeah, good for you. I'm so easily entertained 2 lbs would excite me. I know for me i lose for along time and then change sizes, then I will lose inches and look smaller when I haven't lost much. It took 40 lbs before I could get into smaller slacks. But it all adds up in the end. Iv gotten so I will only get on the scales the 1st of the month. Keep up the good work. emoticon
