Made myself proud this morning

Sunday, December 09, 2012

Usually I go a few days with exercising and then find all sorts of excuses to skip a day or two. I did skip yesterday, I was sore and exhausted. And I had planned on skipping today as well but that was not to be.
We stayed up way late watching a movie (I don't know why, it wasn't that good), and then I got up half an hour late. Told myself well that's it you won't have time to exercise. Had breakfast and goofed around on computer. Somehow I just decided I had time to work out and I was going to.
But then, I couldn't find the DVD no matter where I looked. At first I started to get frustrated, but then I just decided, I knew the moves, I can do this without the DVD. And then I'll look for it later when I'm less rushed.
So I did it! I worked out and worked out hard. Felt good afterwards, and then found my DVD when I got home from the hair place.

Started 30 Day Shred again

Friday, December 07, 2012

So I decided it was time to move up to harder exercises. Oddly enough, the harder they get the more I enjoy them. The easy ones almost seem to demotivate me. Well, anyways, I decided to start doing Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred again.
Usually every time I start it, its rough going. I can't make it through the whole time of each exercise. This time was different. I made all the way through all of the cardio intervals, except for a few brief pauses during jumping jacks. I get shin splints and jumping jacks are the worst for me no matter how much I stretch.
But its getting easier and today will be my third day doing level one. I'm looking forward to it actually. I still just a little sore from yesterday, but its a good sore, a muscle building sort of sore. :)

my sister lost 105 pounds at age 63 by walking 15000 steps a day.

i lost 44 pounds by giving up grain products and sugary products at age 60.

i use a salad plate as a dinner plate; i eat with a childs fork. takes your brain 20 minutes to tell your stomach your full. it works.

Why Yesterday Sucked

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

Honestly I'm not really sure. Maybe it was the sleep deprivation. I had to be up at 3 am to be at work at 5am to do inventory. And that's three to four hours earlier than normal and of course I couldn't go to bed on time.
Maybe it was that fact that when I weighed myself at work I was back up a pound a half. I kept trying to tell myself it was muscle gain, because I've lost an inch around my waist. And I can certainly tell the difference in my arms and legs as far as definition goes. But then a co worker got on the scale behind me, a male coworker who is much taller than me, and we discovered he weighed less than I do. A shock to him, and a downer to me.
I spent the rest of the day waffling back and forth between being negative and trying to correct that attitude.
But by the time I was getting ready for bed, it was just all negativity. 'You'll never lose the weight. You're so lazy.' And other less pleasant things.
I'm hoping today will be better and I will try and make it that way if I can.

Got Sparkcoach today

Sunday, November 18, 2012

Today was the last day of my free trial, and yay, my grandma said she'd pay for it for me for Christmas. I've really liked using it and I'm glad I can keep it up without interruption.
Also I've lost two pounds since re-starting SP at the beginning of this month and am down a total of seven pounds from just before Halloween. So yay me! :)

My mini-breakthrough

Friday, November 16, 2012

Yesterday was a very good day. And a big part of that was I decided to make it one. I don't know how or why but I had a sudden attitude shift and told myself I can't keep expecting things to just got better. I have to make them better.
And that's what I did. The kid got ready for school without a fuss, we even got there nearly ten minutes early because I'm so used to it being time to go the minute we're ready.
Came home and started cleaning, took a few breaks but I managed to get the living room and bathroom all nice and shiny. I got laundry put away. I even had time to play Diablo 3 :)

    I have found that this is such a mind thing. You can do so much more if you mind and heart are in it :)

Great job getting your mind there!!
