thinking too much

Wednesday, March 10, 2010

Well so far it has been a very interesting week. Jury duty!! I have took my lunch and snacks with me and have done my exercise when I get home. So far no problems.
I keep wanting to beat myself every once in a while because I gained the weight back that I had lost in 08 and 09. Good gravy I lost 120 pounds and gained it all back in just a few short months. I just don't understand why I could not have stuck with Spark and learned to maintain. I thought I had changed my way of living but I did not. I went right back to sweets, fried foods and lots of sweets. And I stopped all exercise. I will again lose the weight but this time I do not stop until I make my goal of 150 and then the next day I will start counting again, day 1, maintaining. If I must count calories for the rest of my life, so be it. If I must log in to Spark everyday to record my exercise and food so be it. I seem to need the structure of putting what I eat down and recording the exercise. It keeps me accountable and keeps me from getting amnesia about my food. I want so bad to continue feeling good and being proud of myself and I know this is the way. I have to realize my health is more important than any thing I could eat. I have heard people say if I can not ever have candy or cakes or etc again I don't care if I ever lose another pound. Well I want to get so into my health that I will give up anything that keeps me healthy. There is so many Spark friends that are really trying hard this year and I hope we can all learn our lessons well and be happy and healthy.

    We cannot change what has already happened but we can decide to change for the better from now on. You can do it!

    I am with you on this. If I have to record my colries and log my food everyday for the rest of my life, then so be it I WILL DO IT. I want this to be a healthy lifestyle change forever. FOr me to do that, I have to see it down on paper. I forget how much I just grazed before. I allow myslef the treats now, but I limit it to one serving. I am doing good with that.

You lost the weight before and you can lose it again!!!!

It was a beautiful day. We took our lunch and snacks and went on a seven hour ride. We would stop ever so often and get out and walk. We went to new territory and had the best time finding our way out. We ran upon some of the most beautiful homes and boats and water. Everybody was out it seemed today. We came upon a state park that we had never been to and enjoyed that. I love it that it is starting to get warmer. I know we will be out every weekend somewhere.
I have jury duty next week. I hope it does not mess my program up. I can exercise at night if I have too. I will bring my lunch and snacks in case I get picked and have to stay. I have to realize life happens and I will adjust and deal with what ever comes up.

    I too loved the sunshine this weekend. My husband and I sat outside and grilled. We are so looking forward to the Spring.

Keep up the good work of planning ahead with the snacks.

Journey of life

Thursday, March 04, 2010

Upon the journey of your life, the road will split in two.
One path is the old. The other, new.
Which one you choose is up to you.
I believe I will choose the new one. I'm on day 60 of a wonderful streak. I've lost 30 pounds.
I am looking forward to each day and a new adventure around ever corner. I'm looking forward as the weight comes off being able to wear the clothes in my closet, of being able to do exercises that I'm not able to do, to ride horses, to go swimming, etc. I have a new life ahead of me and it is so exciting and I do not want to go back.
I have a feeling there are a lot of Spark friends out there that are on wonderful adventures this year. I have read some of their blogs and I encourage each and ever one of us to go for our goals and have a new and wonderful life. We can do anything we set our minds to.

silver linings

Wednesday, March 03, 2010

Past memories, present experiences, future dreams
all are but different spokes upon the wheel of life.
Each turn of the wheel reminds us of where we came from,
of who we are today, and of what we hope to become.

To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people
and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics
and endure the betrayal of false friends. To appreciate beauty; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;
To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived; That is to have
succeeded. By Ralph Waldo Emerson emoticon emoticon
