My map, my journey

Tuesday, September 22, 2009

I have this map in my head that I am getting to. Destination A to Z I call it my journey because I know there are many roads and detours that may take place as I drive along. I find myself at times making choices that are like dead end streets because I don’t reach out for directions (support) –yeah yeah some people may relate as those husbands that know it all and never ask for directions!! That can be me I hate to admit but by admitting maybe I will solve my fears in my travels. I eat or drink my way to a dead end street sometimes going way to fast and out control causing wreckage to my car, then having to go to the collision shop for a rebuilt (attitude adjustment). I need to avoid those dead end streets because I end up nowhere which doesn’t really do me any good. So while on my happy travels I must remember to reach out for my map, handbook and friends. I will stop at their homes for some support and rest along my travels to stay focused. I will also make my regularly service stops for check ups aka weigh ins…
I lead a great Biggest Loser Team – Pinks and check in with them I actually have about 23 of them I can visit-two of them which I check in with frequently. When I am doing this I do great when I don’t I lose my directions, so my goal for the week is to stay on my route and not have any detours except to my friends places for support. Those are safe homes along my route. I will make the right choices to make it to each of my destinations.

A-Starting Point (Home) – 9/3/09
B-First Service Stop – 9/10/09 (lost 9.7)
C-Second Service Stop - 9/17/09 (lost 3)
D-Collision Shop needed an attitude adjustment - 9/21/09
E-Got Car out of the Shop & visited a great friend and will be back on the road 9/22/09. Car is running well today :)

My total destination will be about 148.5 miles i've driven about 10.7 miles so i have about 138 to go. Services Stops are on Thursdays!!!

    I decided to check in on my journey and add a few more notes that i have learned. 1. it is a never ending road trip, i know this because once i make it to my destination i will have to continue on living a healthy lifestyle so there will be a lot of short little trips, the way i see it, it's like my RV is fueled up and ready to go on daily basis i can be visiting any city there will be hills pot holes and curves, it is how i manuvere around these obsitacals. 2. Tune ups are still and will always be neccessary, i checked in yesterday at my dr. office for AC1 testingfor my diabetes to see where I am at. I dropped 30# since he last saw me in January and boy was he excited, he is personally going to call me with my results. My physical therapy on my right tired (right ankle) is going well, no surgery will be needed but constant tuning of my ankle is needed, lots of exercises to stregnthen it will be required, it is helping i'm walking 1-2 miles 3 times a week and back to light hiking i even did walking/jogging for the first time on Saturday felt good. 3. Keeping my head out of collision mode the RV does not need a trip to the shop. 4. Continue to pull into rv stops and visit around the campfire with good friends!!!! 5. travel logs kept to help control those emotional outbursts and portion control.

Ready set go, move out of my sunny 34.9 pounds lighter and am not adding any more unwanted luggage to trailer!

    My tuneup has been completed (more like the attitude adjustment i needed) Having this little one around has given me renewed energy... i have been eating a little more healthier items for breakfast (bigger portions) and lunch then light meals for dinners and no heaving snackings at night. Working on lightening the pepsi habit and succeeding started challenge at 310 and first weigh in lost 5.4 :) I am really pushing myself to get under 300 by Christmas!!! and keeping it off. Thanks for visiting my page I will have to be more deligent about writing!!!

Birthday gift to myself!

Thursday, May 28, 2009

It was my birthday weekend and we went camping. I had a wonderful time and I hiked about 8 miles. I still ate what i wanted but i hiked my butt off. I went on a 4 mile hike which we accented approximately 2500 feet. We had 8 steep switch backs and 1/2 way there Byron asked me if I wanted to continue because it was kicking my butt and i have to tell you all this I'm gonna finish what i started and nothing is gonna get in my way attitude hit me. I did it but a friggin grandfather tree kept us from the final view point. I was extremely proud at how far i got. I felt I made a major accomplishment and fought my own demons and didn't quit. It really felt good to go that far and i wanted to go further I was ready for more. I will go back later this summer and do it again we were told that they should have the trail cleaned up next month.

I found a walking stick which Byron is personalizing for me and writing my hikes and miles on the stick. :) I hope to make it a century mile stick by the end of the summer. :) I know I can!!! I'm excited I lost 4.5 pounds. I am excited. It proved I can do this if i eat less and anything i want just less of it and exercise I will lose weight and i don't have to give anything up. I got up to 310# and now am taking it off. I am going to continue to push myself like I did this weekend. If I do that nothing can hold me back nothing but myself and I really like what I felt. I have been struggling but doing more then ever to fight for it.
