Coffee powered walking : )

Friday, May 17, 2013

Hey everyone. I've been off an on SP over the last couple of weeks and I have been dealing with some hardcore binging issues. My body is fighting back and it's a wake up call. I am back up to 220 after getting as low as 184 at this time last year. I have been in this cycle my whole life. Today I am trying my best to take care of myself and using portion control. I'm super powered up on coffee and I am about to do the Leslie Sansone 2 mile walk. My plan is to do that Thurs-Sun and toning with Yoga or weight training Mon-Wed and then gradually working in some beginner hiit training to get this show back on the road. The hardest part is just forgiving myself.

    Looks like a great plan. I find that if I eat some lean protein several times a day it helps with the binging and keeps me feeling full. Also filling up with lean protein and green veggies in the evening so you don't want to binge on the "bad" stuff. emoticon

    It's disheartening to lose ground, but you can get back. Keep going!

    You're absolutely right!
When you can forgive yourself and realize that is the coping mechanism that you used to handle life, you will be able to move on.
But, you do have to find something else than binging to cope because if you don't, it will come back.
Diet and exercise are part of it,but it's not enough.

  you sound like you are on the right track. keep up the good work and it will payoff in the end. I had surgery on Wednesday and the doctor says no exercise for at least two weeks. this is a bummer. I feel sluggish without my daily exercise. Have a great day

Transforming Into Self...again

Monday, September 12, 2011

I sat this morning thinking of my reasons for weight loss and overall health and fitness. First and foremost the obvious being being a role model for my family. I want to stay young with my children especially since I have a lot of lost years. Years hiding under the weight . The weight of self judgement, wanting to be accepted and loved, judgement from others, and my own ignorance. This coupled with being an overweight child. So I often wondered what life would have been like for me if I lived,talk,tasted ,breathed,run,play,laugh,think, and eat like my children. Then it dawn on me it wasn't too late to become the person I was ment to be. I am looking forward to being agile and able to run and play with my three children.
