I love Get Fuzzy. Satchel is my cartoon inner child. He makes me smile and makes me stop taking life so seriously!

Friends and Realizations

Wednesday, January 06, 2010

For me, I have not been just losing weight. I am tring to restructure my whole life. Stop the excuses, accept the universe, and allow myself to be full of light and love.

It has been interesting to think my old thoughts and to stop them, erase them and think the opposite, think positively.

I really did get something out of complaining and not doing everything I always knew was the right way -- exercising, writing, being creative,wise,funny, sharing,
studying, etc... so much and I got things by not doing them.

Not doing them was easier. I could fit in.

So once again, here I am accepting myself as this being of light.
I have been surrounding myself with words, media, friends who share this vision.

However, right now, I am instant messaging an old high school friend. I care about her. I would like to see her rise up and be that special person she feels inside.

I don't usually like to keep saying things to make people keep thinking about the message I am trying to convey. I usually roll over. I tried to fight each of her excuses. Of course I stopped and then gave her some well being words and that is that.

But it is so sad how awesome we are, she is with excuses. She is like an excuse wizard. They are so up in her being that she can not even see them.

I will send her light and I will do what needs to be done. But it is sad as I sit here and think I might not be her friend soon.

I remember when I lost weight years ago, she treated me like an alien and was rude and mean and I know that contributed to me gaining weight back.

I know that she will not want to hang with me once i am too successful she is one of those people. And I will give that thought to the universe. Maybe life will surprise me.. Maybe I will be able to keep my new way my real way and
still keep some of my friends.

But no longer will i inhibit myself for another or allow myself to be influenced by their reactions/action/thoughts.

I will try to be the inspiration and share but i will not control or force something that just might not be what the universe needs to grow.

    as hard as it is to accept, you can only change you. you can encourage and enlighten and educate others, but only they can change themselves...

I'm so glad to hear that you're not going to let anyone else's unwillingness to change stop you from making the changes you want to see.

  Awww... I will always be there... whether you're rich, poor, fat, slim, crazy or not. I'll probably talk a lot of smack the entire time, but I will. As for your friend... people come into each other's lives for a reason. Take the good and leave the rest... it's not your bag.

P.S... Nothing. I called the post office today and the one dude said he had nothing on wait but would check with the other girl that apparently leaves at 2 and to call back tomorrow. Hmmmph! GRRRR!!!! I want my stuff! Can I eat it? Yummy! Yummy Brownies Chocolate Fudge Truffles!

I lost 2 pounds and at least 5.5 inches! So since I started Sparkpeople all I really have been doing is watching my food. Imagine when I kick this in gear with more exercise! I am excited. It proves if you just track your food and eat according to calories, you will lose weight even without exercise.

It works. It really works. :)

  5.5 inches?!?!?! 5.5 inches?!?!?! How did I miss this? That is AMAZING!

Seriously, that is awesome. Hope everything is going well. I teeter totter but I'm somewhat still on track.

OMG!!! Ok, on a different note, and I know I'm going to sound crazy here... i just found myself daydreaming off into the background of your page and realized... IT'S 3D!!!! Not even kidding! If you stare at it the way you would one of those 3D posters, the faery card moves to the back of the screen and the middle part (the burgundy part of the page on which this blog sits) moves forward. It just freaked me out and I've been staring at your page for probably 15 minutes. Great... now everyone thinks I'm a weirdo! Lol!

I was the same way. The first 6 pounds I lost was just by watching what I was eating.

    You've discovered the "secret" - losing weight is 80% what you put into your body, and only 20% is what you make your body do.

Good luck kicking that exercise into high gear. Muscle burns calories. :)

    that was the biggest difference for me last year, too!! if you can work out, GREAT, but if not, just make sure your food is in order.

WOOHOO on the lost pounds and inches!!!!!

Organization for 2010

Sunday, January 03, 2010

Since I started sparkpeople, I have been trying different methods of organizing and noting ideas that really work. I know I am not as organized as I could be but I am working on it and I don't feel overwhelmed.

I currently life with my mom and stepdad and I noticed that they are dirty, horders and lazy. And I go to cook New Year's dinner and there is a film on everything. How do things get a film? I don't understand films. There has to be a big lapse in cleaning for films to gather and multiply.

Well, I decided to listen to some motivational audio tapes and all of a sudden I thought, I am going to continue acting as if I would if I lived alone or with a man. And just do it. But instead of having to waste all my weekend's cleaning. I thought even if I just cleaned out one mess a month. It would still be better than nothing.

I have been cooking, buying them food, doing the dishes, and cleaning the bathroom and doing the laundry in the attempts of ... if you do it, they will come. Kind of preparing myself for having a family of my own. Organizing and living my life as if what I want is already here.

Some great tips, I read, realized and put into practice. AND WILL KEEP UP!

The below was found on
Great Site.

To be organized means: you get everything done when it's due and you find everything you need when you need it.

---Don't rely on your memory!!! (This is big for me. I am always making up stories, ideas, things to do and I NEVER WRITE THEM DOWN!!! but time and time again, this proves to be the best answer --- WRITE IT DOWN!)

--- Use One Calendar. (I love having many calendars, journals, binders for everything. I am still working on this and keeping everything in one centralized place with simple steps)

--- Set up files for projects.

---Use a timer or alarm clark to stay on schedule.

---Plan your meals. (I can't tell you how much this works. But I get so tired that I put it off and then find myself reaching for unhealthy food.)

---Put things away each day.

Being organized definitly cuts down the stress and stress eating as well as gives me time to stay focused and stay on point with what I am trying to achieve.

I am in it to win it.
