A REVERSE NEW YEAR RESOLUTION

Friday, January 08, 2010

Reverse New Year's Resolutions

Yes, it sounds rather silly and perhaps impossible. But for
the moment, letís assume youíve reached your goal weight,
conquered your emotional eating habits, and built a strong
fitness level.

Mentally fast-forward to one year from now. Picture in detail
how you want to look, feel and live, now that youíve met the
goals you want to achieve. Next, I want you to write these
things down as if theyíve already happened. You can be
realistic as you create your list, but donít be afraid to
dream big. Taken from Linda Spangle 100 days of weight loss.

It is September 12, 2010

I now weight 150 WOW!

I am please with energy level and the way I look and feel in clothes now.

My body feel more healthy, and my muscles are toned, and instead of my a1c being 6.1 it is 5.0 wow I am amazed and my blood pressure is within normal range.

I'm exercising by doing aerobics for 40 mins 5 days a week, and my strength training is 25 min a session 3 times a week.

I've learned that I do not have to let my emotions be my guide as how I eat, I do not have to eat when stressed. I can take a 10 minute breather, go for a walk, and sip some tea. I have learned to nourish my body with food.

I jumped the gun but this is my hope and dream. It will be done.

Linda advised for me to share and I have. emoticonWHAT? do not start with me!! I will do this!!!

What do you do when you have a SUPREME food craving?

Thursday, January 07, 2010

The main reason I joined spark was the food issues I have. Soooooo...Most of the time I give in. I am learning to use my resistance muscle daily. Yes this is a daily thing. I have some days where I do well then there are the other days. I use some distractions like: chewing gum. Yes I live with gum in my mouth. Read the bible/pray, Start a project(need to start NOW!) cleaning a closet etc. I have known to use my megaphone I did so on the threads this morning. emoticon I love to shop..so I am not the kind to window shop a lot. If I see it I want to buy it right then and their.

I know I am not alone in this struggle or I would be the only member on spark. Now I am on the road to success and I will get there with my faith in the Lord. It may take some time but I will get there. Now that my guts have been spilled I end. emoticon Oh yea here is my mega emoticon

    I get that! Shopping can be as fun (momentarily) as eating sweet/fatty/salty disguised as yummy 2 the tummy foods!

Keep those projects rolling & cracking that gum! Prayers 2 :)

    Pat, you are right you are not alone. We all struggle with food issues. However, I think you plan of attack is great. God will get you through this in His timing!!

    When I get a mega craving, I eat something like nuts or trail mix and drink lots of water or juice. That helps a lot. Plus I like to take walks and shopping is a passion of mine too. I have some projects to do but I just don't have the motivation to do them now. I know when I sit around doing nothing, I seem to get my craving more.

Love the megaphone!

day 3 HOW DO I PLAN MY MEALS???

Wednesday, January 06, 2010

I TRY PLANNING MY MEALS THE NIGHT BEFORE..IF THAT IS NOT POSSIBLE I PLAN THEM IN THE MORNING. I HAVE FOUND OUT IF I DO NOT PLAN IN ADVANCE I WILL NOT BE ON CONTROL OF WHAT I EAT AND I WILL GO OUT OF CONTROL.

I DO PLAN FOR BOUNDARIES AS LINDA SPANGLE SAYS BOUNDARIES ARE FLEXIBLE AND I AM ABLE TO STICK WITH THEM BETTER. IF I AM HAVING A FOCUSED DAY MY BOUNDARIES ARE TIGHTER AND IF I AM TAKING A BREAK ETC. BOUNDARIES WIDEN. MEANING I EAT ON THE MED RANGE OF MY CAL RANGE WHEN I AM FOCUSED AND AND ON THE HIGH END WHEN I AM TAKING A BREAK ETC. I AM A WORK IN PROGRESS NOT PERFECTION. AND THIS IS WORKING FOR ME. WORKING MY FAITH EACH DAY.

    Good for you! I am not a planner, but I have a handle on what I eat. If I put my mind to it, I can stick to my food goals, but I am not so good at planning. Like you I am a work in progress! emoticon

Something no one knew about me..Oh Lord here goes!! Day 1

Tuesday, January 05, 2010

I was very limber as a child. Doing splits and cart wheels was a cinch for me. I could even swing on my hands with my legs over them. I had double jointed hips and fingers. I wanted to be a ballerina as a girl. But I was very shy and bashful. My decision not to be a ballerina...I do not regret. Sometimes you just have to know yourself to know your decision not to do something was right inside of you.

I still have doubled jointed hips and fingers and I still can do a mean cartwheel.. giggles!!

Lord, Jesus Mrshoney causes us to be challenged in exercising and other parts of our lives past we bare it all...just about.

    Pat, I think you would have been a beautiful ballerina but I do understand life's choices. And yes MRSHONEYC really brings out all of us. She just wants to make sure we have no hidden reasons to sabotage our success.

    My younger son is double joined and my sister is and my older nephew. I am not, and man if I were I would be a dancer, or a gymnist and go around as a child freaking everyone out. LOL.

    I see you have a whole lot of hidden talents! LOL! I have double jointed fingers, but that is about it. Regrets are something I will not allow in my life anymore. I used to do that and it stopped me from doing what I needed to do.
I bet you would have made a great ballerina!

    One of my sisters and I were in ballet by the time we were 2 and 3 years old -she advanced to toe shoes when she was 11. Not me. I went on to gymnastics when I was 8 - I wanted to be Nadia Comaniche (sp?) Remember her? She was THE gymnast back then! LOL
My youngest sister (Bear14GSB) is double jointed - FREAKY STUFF! but COOL!!!
LOL yep, I do ask the STRANGEST questions, don't I? You should hear the stuff I ask my husband! He just looks at me and rolls his eyes most of the time. Seriously, I'm like a 3-year old!!!

    That's so neat that you are double jointed. emoticon I always wanted to be haha. I am glad that you don't regret your decision. Regret is bad. To me it means I didn't learn anything from it. If I learn from the mistakes or decisions then it's not a regret. If that makes sense? Have a good day!

HIDDEN TALENT...ME AT LEAST

Tuesday, January 05, 2010




When I was 11 years old my mother taught me how to crochet. It did not take me that long to learn. Over the years I have made afghans for people. I gave most of them away. The only time I charged money is when my youngest little boys teacher wanted a blanket for her baby. Before that I made my first baby blank and matching baby jacket all in pink LOL..(believing the dr. knew what he was talking about) that my baby would be a girl. What a shock when I had my first boy. I still used those items for him. He turned out ok by the way. I do not read patterns but I design my own designs mainly granny squares as the picture shows. I have experimented with other stitches.

She also taught me to knit. I found knitting too difficult..if you drop a stitch you are cooked. If you drop a stitch with crocheting it is more forgiven. You can go back and fix the missed stitch more easily then with knitting.

God give us all some kind of talent..even if it is an encouraging word or smile. God don't make no junk.

    That is a ver beautiful afghan! My grandma taught me to knit but I couldn't get the drop one pick up two pearl three blah blah blah. And she lived in another provice so she couldn't teach me on a regular basis. I would have loved to have kept at it. She has passed away but I still have stuff she knitted me like socks and mitts. I will keep those forever!

    Beautiful afghan!
I knit and you are so right about missing a stitch! I am a beginner myself. I have made a couple of scarves and a hat. look at my picture to see them. I am trying to get back in the grove. I am just starting a prayer shawl but I am getting lazy. LOL! I would love to learn how to crochet. That is my next goal.
Great work!

    My aunt taught me to crotchet when I was 7 - I went to stay with her after she had a hysterectomy. My first item was a doll blanket for my little sister - she still has it, well, actually she gave it to her little girl now. LOL
I also know how to knit. While at the hotel in Florida I watched how to do cable stitching - OH MY! Talk about work! BUT I'm going to try my hand at it on my next "project". Am thinking about knitting a matching hat for the scarf I knitted last month.
YES! If you drop a stitch knitting you ARE cooked! I hate when that happens. Feel that I have to go back and rip the entire thing out!!!!
