BBB: Day 34: Always refocusing.

Saturday, August 21, 2010

Hey everyone!

Just wanted to write a quick blog.

I am always refocusing. Woke up at 7:00 am on a SATURDAY with the goal of working out. and I did it! Went to the apt. gym and rode the exercise bike for 30 mins. worked up a good sweat. :-) Then got to studying to make up for the kind of off day I had yesterday. All is well.

We aren't promised that each day will be perfect, but if we KEEP refocusing on our goals, we will get there much faster. One mistake doesn't have to derail an entire day. and if it does, it certainly doesn't have to derail two.

Get up. dust yourself off. forget yesterdays mistakes. refocus. move on. and by move, I mean your body. lol!

My daily goals:
IF YOU BITE IT, WRITE IT! To keep a detailed food log.
daily exercise - so far so good! on day 21 now... :-)
try to get in these fruits and veggies!
drink 64 oz of water. ;-)
oh and take a vitamin.

4 days til my test. Studying hard. PUSH-ing. Always PUSHing.

    Good job girl, I don't know HOW many times I've told others this very same thing!!! If you just keep trying (refocusing) ONE day you're gonna get it right!! And then a week goes by, and then a month...you get the point ;) Great job, you've been doing phenom!!

BBB: Day 32: Discipline = HAPPINESS

Thursday, August 19, 2010

I've said it before and I'll say it again... when I DISCIPLINE myself to just DO IT, it almost always leads me to happiness~!

I went to bed VERY late and was supposed to work out @ 6 am but that would have given me very few hours... and I overslept.

[ I'd like to interject to say... as much as I VALUE sleep... sometimes I personally find it VERY uplifting to tend to my soul when it is troubled lol... so I laid in bed for a while was unable to sleep and instead decided to read uplifting quotes, pray, and do a little more studying so that when I did get sleepy again, I would have a clear conscious. and... it worked. I am having a great day now despite missing a LITTLe sleep. I've been sleeping 9 hours a night these days . :-) ]

instead of pouting about it and ruining an ENTIRE day for ONE mistake... I CHOSE (operative word) to suck it up, shower and head to the LIB (library for short lol)!

because I had to drop the boytoy(fiance) off at work (he's working near wear I study) and we had limited time, I had to leave the house with no BREAKFAST! GASP!!

-- thankfully, something must have clicked recently because I BYPASSED MCDONALDS, I did not panic, get pissed and cancel the entire study session I had planned from fear of FUTURE hunger (have done that before, when worried I'd be stuck in the LIB with no food for HOURS...) and decided to stay calm, get some coffee and a SUB (footlong ham). So that lasted my entire study session.

credit for:
*not letting a few minor setbacks ruin my day!

*walking past the cookie and brownie table - THEY WERE FREE- and feeling HAPPY about it

*driving past MCDONALDS

*choosing to walk after leaving the LIB though I was tired, my eyes hurt, and I was in pants... I love to sweat... but ONLY in workout clothes! LOL... I sucked it up today. So take that!

*choosing to Exercise though I had NO PHONE, NO IPOD and NO distractions! ::double GASP:: exercising with just..... nature!? actually ended up being beautiful! It was quickly became a gratitude walk, and instead of focusing on what I didn't have and why the walk wouldn't be great, I CHOSE to smile, hold my head up and be thankful for all the things I DID have at that moment, you know, like AIR to breath, legs to walk, a God to look over me and keep me safe, a break for my tired brain... lol, I could go on and on.... but I want. ::sigh of relief::

* It's only 5 pm... but I wanted to go ahead and write my blog so I can check it off my list!

BBB: Day 31: Tracking weight and pants-o-meter!

Thursday, August 19, 2010

Short blog... just saying that I tried on my pants o meter and I can get them all the way on, but can't zip or button.
*This will be the starting point. I will try them on again in a month. I was just wondering how I would remember to try them on, and I've decided that at this very minute I will set a reminder in my blackberry! DONE! yay, technology can help our weight loss process.
*Oh and I packed my lunch today while studying and ate it, so I ate the meal I'm planned = credit! Great job Gonabfit!

This is my motivation system... I've been doing it since I was like 12. I love making stuff and I find this motivational. I put it on my refrigerator and every time I work out I get a sticker. If I have time, I write exactly what I did. It feels good to see lots of stickers. and by the end of the month I can see an average...

Oh and I went for a 3 mile walk after being unable to focus while studying... figured it was better to get up and work out (even if just a walk) than to sit there staring at the same page over and over! :-)

Hoping for an early start tomorrow... maybe exercise at 7 am, then go to the library and get a early start on the studying... Actually, I WILL workout because that way I won't have to sit at the desk obsessing over when I WILL exercise... since I am on a daily exercise streak ;)

OH and credit for resisting the Sunchips I wanted to eat randomly at 1 am. PROUD for resisting. Must exercise to make the RESISTANCE MUSCLE grow!

written at like 2 am

    I love both of these motivating ideas. Pants zipping or not, your abs look good girl!! You are rocking this! I will definitely need to incorporate the stickers idea. Who doesn't love get stickers?!

Kick up the great work!

CAMANDMAYASMOM 8/19/2010 10:14AM

    Oh I just love your idea about the motivational stickers! What a great idea. :-)
And you've also given me another way to track my progress, other than the scale, because I don't really like to take all of those measurements. I have a jean skirt in my closet that that is a size 8 that will help me to gauge how I'm doing as well. Thanks for the idea! :-)
And way to go on being able to get them all the way up. You'll be able to zip them in no time. Great job on getting those work outs in too, and your studying! Girl you are really doin' it!
Keep it up.

BBB: Day 30: Let's give 'em something to talk about!

Tuesday, August 17, 2010

So, today was an unusually productive day and I'm HAPPY about it!

I woke up @ 9... was going to workout but decided instead to just head to the library and workout later when I could exercise without a guilty conscious being that my test is in 8 days. I went to the library for 3 hours and got more done than I sometime do in a day! :-) GO ME!!
I read more than I needed to for the day... but I have some free time so I'm going to read more and get ahead while I can.

Came home and worked out! :-)

so I'm giving myself credit for:

emoticonwaking up and trying to do Turbo Jam. I had good intentions
emoticon making breakfast though I was pressed for time to get to the library (scrambled egg + egg white + .5 oz 2% cheddar)
emoticon going to the library though I would have rather stayed home and studied
emoticon actually getting work done!
emoticon PASSING Mcdonald's on the way home and CHOOSING to get something from the fridge instead! (ended up eating rotisserie chicken and 1/2 cup brown rice)
emoticon drinking lots of water!! and using splenda in my coffee
emoticon ACTUALLY going to the apartment gym to workout. Learning to focus on what I'm doing instead of worrying about what I should be doing instead.
emoticonBurning 505 calories by 3 pm!!! Oh and I ran a mile in 9:01 emoticon big deal for me because though I've run marathons I took a break from running I haven't run in a while... :D
emoticon reading my BECK diet solution and following the guidelines :-)
so emoticon for me!!!

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon : Now since it's still early and I've gotten more done today than I usually do, I'm going to read more and do some practice questions!

~*~ Let's give 'em something to talk about ~*~ WE CAN DO THIS!!!! One day at a time... Let's envision who we want to be... and GET BUSY being HER (or him... if you're a boy :-) !!!

My dinner! Turkey burger with onion + .5 oz 2% cheddar cheese inside. with string beans, wheat bread, tomato

AND JELLO for dessert! ... whenever it finishes :-)

** Stayed within cals today! 1300 eaten 665 cals burned :-) **
