It never fails...exercise and diet win the day!

Monday, June 22, 2009

First off, hope all you fellow dad's out there had a great Father's Day! I did and a small part of that came from the fact that I was back on course weight wise. It seems I have some work to do because the "mechanics" of weight loss, at least for me, seem to work pretty what you eat and exercise and I drop the pounds. The last couple of weekends I started out below my weigh in weight only to find come Sunday that I bumped up a pound or two. I think part of that is because I eat differently on the weekends (closer proximity to the fridge) versus during the week. The other part, well that's what I'll be taking a closer look at. I can see now why weight loss pills or other extreme measures will never work, at least not in the long run, they focus on the physical but don't really factor in the mental aspects of why you may be overweight.

    Seeing as though I'm both mom and day,lol, Yes, I did have a good Father's Day. Actually, how dare i take all the credit, the LORD fills in the gaps, and they are big ones. Speaking of the mechanics of weight loss, something so simple, made so hard by distractions, cleverly disguised as 'choices'.

Why do we have to have so many choices available to us for food? Man oh man

I agree when you're home more you're more likely to nibble more. I never understood why people get wrapped up in the idea of everything being answered by a pill. To me it's like, "Umm.. excuse me, but doesn't anyone else smell trouble here?" And sure enough 5 years later, you see the recall notices and class action suits everywhere. Just K.I.S.S.!!! (I say Saint not Stupid)

Anyways, thanks for stopping by my place. I'm in heaven on this site. Oddly enough I'm having trouble getting my 8 hours of sleep a day cause I feel like I have to get every possible point EACH AND EVERY DAY. I never really thought much of OCD, but Wow!!! LOL.

Keep doing your thing. I'ma call you High Five cause it seems like you have no prob hitting those 5 lb markers. Until next time....i gotta get some zzzz's emoticon

I now know why they cry.

Wednesday, June 17, 2009

The contestants on the Biggest Loser, when they get up on that scale and, low and behold, they've gained weight. I'm not gonna cry over my weight gain but if I worked my butt off and saw no results that would suck. Fact is, I know exactly what I should've been doing but didn't do. I hope this cycle works like Haley's Comet and I won't be seeing it for a while. I think The Beatles' song "The Long And Winding Road" says it best, or maybe I'm thinking of The Greatful Dead's "Long Strange Trip." Either way, there's gonna be highs and lows but we've got to keep on pluggin away. Trump is an awesome example: made it big, lost it big and made it back even bigger. Never quit, never surrender! Every day is a new chance to try again!

    Don't cry - GET ANGRY. I find that when I cry and wallow I don't change anything. When I get angry I tell myself NO MORE and start taking things more seriously. You're right - life (And the scale) has it's ups and downs but it's how we react to challenges and struggles that shapes our overall outcome. Kick butt, you can do this. You already know what you need to do, now DO IT.

Screw the past!

Wednesday, June 10, 2009

If you want to make progress and realize success are you gonna have to be consistent? You better believe it. A few days off, especially in the wrong setting, can press the UNDO button big time. There is work to be done and with that said I'm going to focus more on today than to account for the past. Learn from it...hopefully (I better, as Sgt Murtaugh would say "I'm getting to old for this s***.), but I can't worry about those cals of the past (some good, some less than good). Isn't it weird, good food makes you feel good but so does less than good for you food. I think the only difference is the duration of the feel good.

    Good music makes everything feel a little better, don't you think?

Not quite sure about the rum. I would prefer my calories spent in a chocolate cream pie.
