Why Not Now?

Wednesday, September 10, 2014

An exploration on the mindset behind why Monday never comes and my struggle with the voice inside my head.

    You hit the psychie of many people, including myself a time or two in all my years. Good for you for changing your world so that you can achieve satisfying results on your journey. My "why not now" question was answered two weeks ago when I just said, "NOW". I hope you said, "NOW" too. Wish you success!!

    It looks like you are on the right track and I think you're right about the negativity. We think success belongs to other people because we seem to fail at the fitness portion. It's good to see you working it out. I do the same thing. Talking to myself and being honest with myself helps me go for the goal. Slow and steady is what I need to learn. I have no patience. At least I'm not as hard on myself when I slide. Keep up the good attitude.

Unnecessarially stressful day

Monday, November 18, 2013

Blah. Blah.

Hate it when I make little mistakes that screw me over.

Not weight loss related but just in a general can-I-go-curl-in-a-ball-and-die feeling. I don't like feeling upset. Its not my general inclination.

All the words that I'm pretty sure I'm not allowed to post (this was confirmed.) F-bombs galore.

    It's so humbling to make mistakes and have consequences. Deep breath... it''ll be OK.

I've been quiet but...

Wednesday, November 13, 2013

That doesn't mean I haven't been working hard. I had a personal tragedy and pulled myself out of it. I've been going to the gym more consistently than I have ever done in my life--ever. Like, even when I was at my smallest.

I haven't dropped a ton of weight yet, but my health is improved. I feel...like, so good. About myself and my direction. Its awesome.

    It is so easy to fall into emotion and let it get the best of you. Instead of giving up, it is good that you overcome

Stay strong!

Challenge W1 D1

Monday, June 10, 2013

I'm part of the Smokin Summer Body Challenge (go Team 3!!!) and I'll be logging my points/challenges/food daily so its easier to total at the end of the week.

My day at a glance: Day off, ran some errands. Could have been a bit more active but I made up for it by doing a quick 20 min workout before bedtime.


Breakfast: Bisquick Heart Smart pancakes with a few chocolate chips, SF syrup
Lunch: Chipotle burrito bowl, chicken black beans light rice sour cream salsa lettuce
Dinner: Healthy Choice Crustless Pot Pie (surprisingly yummy)
Snack/Indulgence: 4 (ugh) mini cupcakes from Sweets by Holly, 1 mixed drink with 0 calorie raspberry lemonade sparkling water and Smirnoff Sorbet Raspberry pomegranate

Need more veggies!

10 min Fit Fired and Firmed Up Lower Body
50 wall pushups per challenge
2 min standing ab work

Personal Challenge: Cleaned up the kitchen emoticon

Drinking some water to meet my ten cup goal before bedtime. I feel good except for the cupcakes lol. But they didn't derail my day entirely. I'm glad I exercised at the very least.

Points for today:
50 wall pushups: 10
Water: 10
Personal Challenge: 10
Total: 30 pts out of 35

Day 4 and learning

Friday, June 07, 2013

It was Tropical Storm Andrea over here in Florida and I left the house maybe once. You know, to go get chips and queso and a quesadilla from Tijuana Flats. Umm...yeah. But I held true to my word that I would track my food and such and guess what-- No really, guess. I'll wait.

Okay. Hah. I didn't blow my day! It still fell within my ranges even with drinking sweet tea and stuff. Oh wow. Revalation. But I also got a whole wheat quesadilla with chicken and good options and stuff. And I had a healthy breakfast so that helped.

No exercise yesterday. Gonna break that today.

    Have you tried either of the cardio kickboxing videos on here? They're such a good work out and only 10 minutes!
