Removing the Negative

Friday, November 14, 2008

I couldn't think of a good title. But I'ts 3:20 a.m. I just came to the conclusion for the umpteenth time that I need to remove the negative people and thoughts from my life. I'm trying to remember that " No one can make you feel inferior without your consent" but... when that is someone's main goal it's a little difficult to remember your worth... :-/ And I do realize that my self-worth/esteem should not be based on someone else's opinion and that honestly this is MY responsibility. I am responsible for my happiness or lack there of. But anyway, I am tired of dealing with situations that I know I would not stick around for if I felt like I had more options and confidence to get up and leave.

I'm keeping this vague because it is the internet and I have a diary for my MOST personal thoughts :-D.

Things I want to do:
1. remember my life is complete even if it is only me and God :-)
2. Become SO secure in myself and my capabilities that even someone TELLING me I can't do it, isn't enough to convince me.
3. REmove the negatvie people from my life slowly but surely.
4. Replace them with positive people.
5. In the mean while, develop things that I like that I can do alone
6. Spend MOST of my time with people I enjoy.
7. Be too busy to care.
8. Spend free time gained by removing negative people on improving myself and STUDYING! :-)
9. NEVER lose myself in a situation that becomes all-encompassing
10. Pray and SLEEP. (which I am going to do now! :-)
**BOnus- Do things that make me look and feel confident. :-)

  "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent"

I used to carry this quote around with me in my twenties. I don't know exactly when it was that I removed it from my wallet. Maybe when I finally got it through my head.

I went through a sort of cleansing of negative people a few years ago. It can be painful when you have alot of history. But for some reason, some people want to bring you down when they're feeling low. It's a lesson in compassion.

    I've learned and I know you're learning that negative folks bring ya down. I've gone as far as changing my work hours to avoid a negative body. I couldn't do it - slowly I just up and decided that today it ends. We have to take care of self and surround "self" with positives and things that enrich us. If I offer one bit of advice - remove negative people and things ASAP and you'll start to feel relief and feel better ASAP. Rather you realize it or not - negativity affects the body and your health. Keep focusing on your goals and I'm sure you'll heal quickly and revel in the beauty of positivity and peace.

    Really like the positive steps you listed to take care of yourself...stick to your plan and you'll reach you goal. It's all about feeling good about yourself!

I just wanted to put up a quote to get me through the week!

This weeks goal...

2. EAt breakfast everyday at home
3. go to bed on time and sleep atleast 7 hrs M-F NO EXCUSES!
4. Prepare for school the day before
5. Eat every 3 hours- 3 hr diet!
ETA: Monday- I only got 5 hours of sleep... but still woke up at 6:25 to workout! :-) I did 50 mins on the treadmill. Made breakfast, ate some of it at home, and so far am following the 3 hr schedule. I ate too many calories but I stopped once I realized. I'll do better tomorrow


Call me Curvy... My goals

Saturday, November 08, 2008

So I thinking about my progress and realized that this is going to be a slow process... I am excited about my new body... and I look forward to the weight loss!

My measurements are 34-29-42.5 so You may as well call me curvy If I were taller my shape would be perfect, But I'm only 5'1 so I need to slim down some :-) My goal measurements are 34-24-(38/40). That's realisitic for me and I look forward to it! :-) YAY!

Oh and I've also thought about some goals for myself beyond weight:
weigh 115
Size 6 jeans - I have thighs, hips, and a booty... lol. So a 6 is good enough!
Size 4 dress- I am small on top an d this is the size I used to wear
Do 5 pull ups

This was a random post but thanks for reading! I have a free weekend to relax and I look forward to working out, cleaning, and reading today!

Another Day

Thursday, November 06, 2008

Night before the test!

I managed to do my step workout to my own fun music today for 30 minutes. I have been squeezing in squats pushups and crunches too :-). I AM Excited about reaching my goal. OH and I stayed with in my caloric goal too! :-) I feel like I've finally jumped over that hurdle (keep in mind I've been focused and trying my best to lose weight since June and have cycled the same few pounds.) Either way, I'm excited!

- Gotta go. Need to finish studying! :-D This has been a CRAZY week! So I'll fill who ever reads this inlater... even if it's only me!

Just K.I.S.S

I write a LOT... so I hope you guys don't mind!

I just realized today that I HAVE to workout first thing in the morning and any other exercise I do will just be additional. The reason for this requirement is that I will procrastinate and THINK about working out ALL day. I focus on being overweight/out of shape etc... either way I am unable to focus on my other things. I feel like if I work up as soon as I get up, I will know that I have done my part to getting in shape and continue the rest of my day in peace while realizing that I am still getting closer to my goal no matter HOW busy the rest of my day gets!
And for the rest of the day I will only have to focus on eating. I LOVE WORKING OUT... BUT Medical school is too busy and takes too much of my mental energy for me to sit around ruminating over my weight. SO.... I have decided to KEEP IT SIMPLE!

1. I am going to clean and organize my apartment this weekend after my test( to make things more simple, as my mom ALWAYS said... and I quote" EVERYTHING HAS A PLACE!" I have learned this lesson after losing so many things... I am tired of being unorganized. I need organization and peace in my life!)
2. I will plan and pack my meals the night before. I will eat every 3 hrs and hopefully this will allow me to focus on the other things in my life.
3. I am going to work out in the a.m. or AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. No procrastination.. because I need to free up some mental energy!
4. I also would like to take some time each day to meditate, journal, or take a bath-like actually in the bath tub) and relax. (I bathe EVERYDAY! But usually showers!)

Today I worked out as soon as I got home from school and It was wonderful! I feel better when I sweat and I feel like it is clearing my mind as well! I did the elliptical and bike today because I wanted to be able to study while working out! Test FRIDAY! Think of me!

    What a great blog! I'm right there with you. If I don't get the exercise done in the morning...I think and stew about it all day and often don't get it done. First thing is best for many of us. Prayers coming your way for good test results. :)

Blessings, Bonnie
