coming back with my tail between my legs

Thursday, April 21, 2011

I'm going to try this again. I got on the scale yesterday and the number had climbed to 216. My back hurts nearly all the time now because of my weight and instead of trying to lose, I've been taking too many pain pills.

My life is a mess right now and my head is a mess, too. Losing weight won't make everything perfect, but getting back into eating right and taking care of myself will help my self-esteem and improve my mood, not to mention virtually cure my anxiety.

I felt so good when I was on SP last year. I don't know what happened. I just fell off the wagon and didn't look back until I gained everything back plus more. I feel like such a failure.

But I'm back. I hope. I will need strength to do this, strength I'm not sure I have.

    I think it's great that you came back and please don't think of yourself as a failure. You're human and we're all here for the same reason, we want to be healthier. I'd say we're all a bunch of winners and that you'll be back on track in no time!!

    You're not a failure because you came back! The only way to fail is to give up. You can do this, remember how good it felt to take care of yourself? remind yourself of that everytime you want to give up. I have faith in you, welcome back!

getting back into the swing of things

Tuesday, October 12, 2010

I'm focusing on getting back to exercising and when it's going better then I'm going to turn my focus to my nutrition. As it is, I'm still skipping meals and not tracking, and I don't know when I'm going to make a real effort to fix that. I'm eating well when I eat, I just drink coffee and forget about food until the late afternoon. Heh.

But I'm trying not to stress about things and I'm getting back into the routine of doing yoga every day. I did 20 minutes of Rodney Yee Total Body Power Yoga today. It felt good, even though this is the stretchiest yoga DVD I've ever done.

I'm going to try to update more often than I have been. Thank you all for being here for me!

    I am struggling to get back into a good routine after a bit of a physical issue. Limit your coffee to once or twice a day and replace the other times with water. One step at a time dear friend. You will get back into the swing of things soon. emoticon

    It's hard to get back into the swing of things, I know that from experience. I'm trying to go to the Y six days a week and have committed to doing one of Coach Nicole's 10 minute videos on the days I'm not able to make it. I feel like this is reasonable and I'm going to see how it goes.

Good luck and keep us posted on how you're doing!

I'm still alive!

Monday, October 11, 2010

I just haven't been blogging.

I haven't been really tracking everything I eat, but I have been eating okay. Actually, better than okay. When I eat, that is.

I've lost a pound without really trying, but I know I have to get back on track with eating healthy all the time and exercising.

Today I did some yoga and tomorrow I will do a little more.

I think in the past couple of months I was doing too much and then suddenly I just wasn't feeling it at all. I think I pushed myself too hard and tried to do too much too soon. I'm getting back on track slowly, adding one thing at a time.

So anyway, that's what's going on. I should update more often for the accountability factor. I will try to do that. :)

monday, monday...

Monday, October 04, 2010

I walked for 30 minutes instead of doing c25k training. I just wasn't feeling it today and I got stubborn and just didn't do it. And tomorrow I'm going out of town for awhile and might not get it in then, either.

I stayed inside my ranges today. I have undereaten, actually. I know that's not good and I'm going to try to eat more balanced throughout the day the rest of this week.

Hope you are having a great Monday!

    Maybe a little R&R will help you get your Spark back. It always helps me!

today's blog

Sunday, October 03, 2010

4 minutes shy of my goal 30 minutes cardio for the day. I might do a little more stretching and some sun salutations to get in the rest.

I ate within my range for the day, but I'm going to have a bowl of ice cream tonight. If it puts me outside my range, I won't stress. I just really want some ice cream.
