No turning back

Monday, July 22, 2013

Well today is the start of a new day! I have been down this road time and time again. However, I am inspired and finally determined to break over this hump! It has been a long time coming! I didn't stick to the squat challenge, I didn't give up drinking, and the list goes on and on! I found that because of this pattern, I have sabotage myself. Well that way of thinking has officially stop. I am asking that you guys partner up with me and hold me accountable! This was one of the reasons why I joined this site for the support! emoticon We are all on here with a pretty common goal. emoticon ! I running with the way I feel and not looking back! Small changes have BIG rewards and that is what I am going for. emoticon ....I am ready!!!!!!

    Okay let's get busy! No excuses, take it in baby steps every day so you get yourself in a long-term habit and not start out full force and burn out. Check out the short workout videos in this site.

I'm with ya!

5/23/13 Starting a new beginning!

Thursday, May 23, 2013

I was challenged yesterday and the person doesn't even know they did it! emoticon
My husband feels like a person can't change! However, I don't believe that to be true! I know I am not perfect, and there are things i do not like about myself. However, i have to believe that I can make myself better! I am on a serious mission to do that! NOTTTTT just for him, for me!!!!!!! I want to be better, I want to stick to things that I say! My actions need to speak louder than words!!!!!!!!!! emoticon I can do this...Starting with the squat challenge! It is something small..but for the next 30 days...i am going to be consist with it!!!

Day # 1 50 squats....... here I go!

    Yes you can do it! And as "they" say (you know who 'they" are -- the researchers) if you do it for yourself, you are more likely to keep it off! Become the best you, for you. Your husband can just enjoy the view along the way!! emoticon

Getting into the groove

Saturday, January 07, 2012

Well I think I finished this week out with a a pretty good start! I was in a dark gloomy place in the beginning, but it got better! I am currently doing Robert Fegurson Food lover diet free life program..It is pretty easy to follow and I am enjoying it. I am learning how to eat better and make wiser choices. I am currently also trying to stop drinking. I am proud of myself. I had a few drinks towards the end of the week. But stayed pretty cleaned for the rest of the week. The only problem was I had a headache pretty much the complete week..That was a little hard to deal with. I didn't exercise like I wanted to. But I am going to try and step that up this week! I at least don't feel that block anymore!

My family in New Jersey is still dealing with stuff. But I am going to be a support and not take their stuff on as my own. My husband did something very unexpected this week..He left me a note on the bed telling me how much he loves me. With an iPod loaded with songs that he said" makes him smile when he thinks of me". It touched my heart ! Some of them wee my favorite songs and I never realized that he paid attention to my music .. When he got home my heart melted a little when I seen him and he was looking at me the way he use to. Let me tell you prayer does work! It was exactly what I needed!!

So ready to get this party train back on the move!

    That was so sweet of your husband. My husband tries to express his love to me like that but he misses the mark a lot. I know that he loves me though because he shows it in other ways like helping out and caring for me through my illness.

    Nice thing for your husband to do. I occasionally make a collection of songs for my wife too. I started that the first year we were married (1979) when I had to dub records to cassettes. It is a LOT easier to do that these days! LOL

Gotta believe

Monday, January 02, 2012

I had a lousy start to the new year! Family falling a part, there seems to be a dying love for my husband, and I am worried about the outcome of this year with all the chatter about the end being near! With all of that I do not feel like focusing on fitness and that is causing me to feel like a failure. How can I continue from this point! I just want to give up completely! So very hurt and upset that things are starting out like this! What do I do? I really need to seek some outside help, because I really feel so out of myself right now.

    I agree! You need to take care of yourself right now! I'm sure "working out" is the last thing on your mind, but you might be suprised how a walk around the block will make you feel. Just some quiet time to be with yourself & your thoughts. I think as women we are taught to take care of others & that it is selfish to think about ourselves, but you aren't any good to anyone until you DO take care of you! It's a hard time for you, I know. You will definately be in my prayers!

    You are NOT a failure. Life is changing, and the goal is to change with it for the positive. While fitness/workouts may not be at the top of your list, 10-15 minutes may be just what the doc ordered. The focused breathing, released stress/tension and heightened endorphins can help you get through the rough patches and give you time to focus on what is the best way to make the life change work. emoticon

    the 'outside' is making you feel a mess, and you want to turn to the 'outside' for help? actually, it sounds to me like you've got a lot of common sense yourself.

just don't feel it!

Wednesday, November 02, 2011

What do you do when you just don't feel like going on anymore. I mean I hate this feeling that things seems so hopeless!! I don't have no spark, no desire and just not motivated! I wish I knew how to bring things back together. Looking at my life, there is not too many things that I stick to! I just want to find a groove where I can keep things going. I have no peace or happiness in my heart right now and so worried that I will not find it! Anyone out there with suggestions.. Pleaseeeeeeeee...

    I find that writing the Spark blog helps me be "honest" with my self. I'm a closet binger so it's been hard to open up to people and share. The support on here is awesome and it's felt world wide! Grab the advice, tips and comments and hold them tight! It's worth logging in everyday but most of all, YOU'RE worth it!!

    You've received so much good advice...and glad to hear that you are adding them to your journey. They all demand that you create some ME time, slowing things down so you can see the trees in the forest. My journal has become my BFF and pointed me towards better prioritizing my life. I'm sending you an article I found on SP, which I had heard before, but with my desire to lead a healthier lifestyle it really hit home. So many things are in our life that make us feel there's not enough time to do them when it looks like everyone else can. What's the matter with us? The answer is NOTHING is wrong with us only there are activities on your TO DO list stressing you that don't belong there. I hope the article helps you as much as it did me. Hang in there sweetie emoticon

    Take some time to meditate...away from everything AND everyone...if only for a couple of hours...go to a park, rent a room, etc. just to be alone with your own thoughts....then just start 'venting', crying or whatever you need to do to get your emotions out...sometimes we just need an outlet without judgement, advice, etc....being alone with God will help you clear your mind AND bring you closer to Him!

    For me I find comfort in writing out my feelings. You wouldn't think but it takes some of the anxiety away and after a good nights sleep the answers are clearer. Take a deep breathe and find a way to empty your head. Soon you will come up with a action plan.

    I find peace sitting on the porch. And working on a project.
At first I'm rather frustrated but the more my hands are finding what goes where I soon calm down and begin to see a difference. Pretty soon life isn't so gloomy and becomes more manageable.
