Crawling Back to Sparkpeople...

Wednesday, February 05, 2014

So before December I was doing pretty good with my diet and exercise... Then started the traveling to visit family for Christmas.... We go to Texas for 2 weeks.. I ate what I wanted and put my exercising aside... When we got home I kept with the "I will start first thing next week" .. That went on for a few weeks :(

I'm back and 8 pounds heavier... I'm mad that I didn't get back sooner but I'm here now! Already threw all the junk food out and restocked the fridge and pantry with healthy alternatives :)

For Christmas my husband bought me an exercise bike and a home gym so we both work out and walk at night :) he is such a sweetheart because he is doing this with me and he really doesn't need to... Helps keep me going :)

  It's a good thing that no one counts how many times we leave and come back. It's just a kind word and a welcome back! Now that's motivation to stay!

    What's important is that you came back! Everyone has moments where things slip up, but it's true strength is getting up and moving again.

    You're back here, and that's what matters. Take from the past the things that will enrich your future, but don't dwell there. All you have to do is make your plan and totally rock it! You got this!

    The holidays throw a lot of us for a loop, I know I fell victim to it! But you're back here, got good food in the house, got some exercise equipment and have a partner who encourages you. That makes a pretty good recipe for success.

    I have a wonderful, supportive husband too. We are lucky. I'm sure you will take the weight back off once you are on track again.

    I've given a few people this quote today because a lot of us have a tendency to fall off the horse around the holidays.

"What we call failure is not the falling down, but the staying down. Mary Pickford

What's important is that you're back. Congrats on that!

And it's great that your husband is on board exercising with you and everything. It's always awesome to have someone smiling along beside you. :)

    I loved Sweating to the Oldies! I lost my first weight back in my very first real attempt to good old Richard. I was Richard Simmons for Halloween, too!

Trust in yourself..

Friday, November 22, 2013

Please open yourself up to trust again. Trust in your own journey, trust in yourself. Trust in all that you have learned and where you have been and what you have experienced. Open yourself up to love and beauty and goodness, there truly is so much of it out there to be found. And, when you open yourself up to it. It will find you, too.

    I trust in myself! Not really in anybody else so much, but in myself, yes! Also that love, beauty and goodness stuff... I can almost remember what those things are like.

Help for Binge Eating!

Monday, November 18, 2013

BINGE BLOCKERS
Read the SIX WAYS TO BLOCK A BINGE below. And if that doesnt work... beat the crap out of it. First print these out and put them on the fridge door.

Time. Binges are not about food they are about a moment in time. You need to get through those ten minutes without making a bad choice. SO walk around the block, paint your nails, or fold a load of laundry

Endulge. Binges are about you feeling like you "deserve" a treat. Give yourself a different treat like a nap or read a romance novel. Both are a bit decadent.

Mind. Binges are not rational. You need to push your rational brain to the forefront. Remind yourself of your goals, how hard you've worked for the weight loss you've accomplished, AND how BAD you felt the last time sugar or chips seemed stronger than you.

Fellowship. Binges are about secrecy. They THRIVE in darkness. We've never eaten three peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in FRONT of another human. Find people even it it means heading over to the local library.

HELP! This is the time to reach out on Twitter, Facebook, on the phone, at a Weight Watchers meeting. Go now. Build a diet support safety net for this moment.

Proximity. Binges happen when food is accessible. Calories are cheap (in the words of Biggest Loser and Olympic Wrestler Rulan Gardner) and so you need to keep the worst items in Anarctica or Bora Bora. NOT in your pantry.I ate a healthy and sensible breakfast.

Depressed

Tuesday, November 12, 2013

I haven't signed into Sparkpeople for a while now. Had a really rough week! I found out last Monday that my cousin passed away unexpectedly from a blood clot in his lung. He was 42, married and had 6 girls, the oldest being 16. It's really heartbreaking. The funeral was Saturday and it was very nice. He was loved by so many!!
At the funeral I introduced my husband to a cousin of mine that he had met once before but didn't remember her. She added him to facebook and I found a private conversation with them and she was flirting a lot! "You know you love me....wait til we go camping together......" And lots of flirty things were said. It hit me hard! He claims he didn't know she was flirting but I call BS! He didn't flirt back but I think he kept the conversation going because he liked the attention. Either way I have been super bummed out and have no idea what to do.. I haven't been able to sleep and don't even have an appetite. The last two days I've lost 6 pounds! I guess that is the only good news right now!

    You need to inform this cousin that she is not welcome around your house and let your husband know that he needs to unfriend her or else.

    Wow, that's some heavy stuff, gal. It can't be easy.
I went through a similar situation earlier this year when one of my best friends died in a car accident. She was a very loved person and I would wake up to numerous messages and missed calls from guys she was close to. They each came onto me a good 2 or 3 times before I had to distance myself and move on by cutting off contact...loss does some strange things to people and that one was too painful to bear.

I don't know this person but it seems like if their priority, following your cousins funeral, was to flirt with your husband, then they will probably get what's coming to them sooner rather than later.

Just keep your head up and stay focused. Create a goal for yourself and don't stop until you get there. Use it to pour your frustration into and soon your husband will be reminded of the awesome woman he married and your cousin look like nothing more than a desperate child to him.

Good luck!
