Do or Die

Wednesday, May 21, 2014

I have fear this day for a while. The day when you go to the doctor and they tell you that you have a condition. You saw it coming; through every piece of food you put in your mouth to watching time slip away in front of the television instead of getting up to loose the jiggle. I have three months; three months to loose some weight and lower my blood pressure. When I went to the doctor I had high blood pressure. I almost couldn't get my medication because of it. The doctor gave me three month; I only got prescribed enough medication for 3 months. So it has come to this. I have to change the way I eat. I have to change the non-exercise routine I've fallen into. Looking from the outside in always seemed such an easy remedy before. Now that I am here, I don't like it. I am scared. I am also strong. I have worked through many bad things in my life. I can do this. Today I will eat within my calorie allotment. That is my one goal for today. I will track everything I eat, even if I know it will put me over. I can do this. I'm ready for change. One day at a time.

    That's a great goal! One day at a time. Doesn't seem to overwhelming. Best wishes - you will have a great day!

Juice Fast Day 2

Friday, April 11, 2014

So I actually started my juice fast yesterday; today will be be day 2 of 7.

I tried to get my husband to do it with me, and he is doing it about 75% of the way. He drinks juice with me, eats fruits/veggies when he is hungry, and some soup too sometimes. emoticon

I have the worst headache this morning. I would say it's from caffeine but I haven't had any for over a week. I feel scattered today and can't seem to focus very well. I don't feel as hungry this morning as I did yesterday. I have read and seen that the first 4 days are the worst, then you start to feel better. I hope I don't start feeling worse than I do right now emoticon

I can't wait to see where I will be mental, physical, spiritual, and emotional wise at the end of all of this. I'm hoping to come out a healthier person. emoticon


The documentaries that opened my eyes

Monday, April 07, 2014

So I have been sulking on Netflix lately, not wanting to do much of anything. I have been using the Bullet that my parents gave my husband and I for our anniversary, so a little weight lost. I started to watch documentaries on Netflix... and I must say I feel horrible for the way I have been treating my body. After watching FoodMatters and Sick, Fat and Nearly Dead, I have come to the conclusion that I have to do something about the way I eat. So starting Thursday, I will begin a juice fast for 7 days, then go and only have extracted food from the Bullet for 7 days. I am hoping this is enough time for my body to heal some of itself and start to get better. Loosing weigh is secondary right now, I just want to feel healthier. I want to be healthier. Cheers!

The good. The bad. The ugly.

Monday, March 31, 2014

Today is Monday, the best day of the week. The day of new starts, and new challenges. Since the first week of December I have been without a kitchen. Water damage from a leak in the condo above ours last August left us with damage and black mold. For the past almost 4 months we have been living on fast food and take-out. I stopped logging my food and exercise because I thought it was going to be a short temporary situation. I haven't stepped on the scale since we had a kitchen, but I know my clothes are tighter, they don't fit quite right. I hesitate to step on the scale for fear of what it will say, and I don't want to get discouraged. My goal I set for myself was to get down to 170lbs by July 31st. At this point I no long know if that is realistic. With that being said, I am still going to try. I am going to pick myself up yet again and track my food; squeeze in the exercise when I can; and hopefully see some results.

    It matters not how many times you stumble or fall for so long as you get back up and continue on.

I want to be the biggest loser!

Monday, November 11, 2013

Once upon a time my husband bought me a Kinect bundle for our Xbox so that I could workout at home. The bundle came with two games; The Biggest Loser Workout and Fitness Evolved. I took to the Fitness Evolved game like a fish to water. It has Cardio Kick Boxing, Boot Camp, Dancing, and workouts to target certain areas. I briefly tried The Biggest Loser one and didn't like it at all.

Last week I fell down into a pit on my journey to a healthier me. I spiraled deeper for just a few days and was able to pull myself out. My friend introduced me to The Biggest Loser Show, and have been watching the newest season on Hulu. I decided to give the Biggest Loser game another chance. WOW!

I realize now that when I tried it before I didn't even give it a chance. Not only does it adjust as you go along, during your workout, for intensity, but it uses the Kinect to scan your body and track your measurements. I double checked the measurements with my tape measure and they were spot on!

I have found myself a new motivation. I love this game! This game makes me want to wake up in the morning and exercise. I go to bed at night looking forward to waking up to exercise.

I'm so happy! emoticon

    I can not say I ever went to bed with the anticipation of looking forward to exercise..
To go on a hike - to go kayaking - to go riding on a pedal bike maybe but to do indoor exercises -- Nope can't say I have..
