not counting myself out just yet

Sunday, March 30, 2014

I haven't been doing great but I haven't been gaining. I can feel myself losing control now, and its time for me to fight. I think I'm going through some sort of depression, I know the doctor would prescribe something but I've also seen what those meds can do to you, so I need to start fighting for me. It seems Spring has decided to join us and tomorrow I will start my couch to 5K program over again. Hopefully some activity and sunshine can snap me out of this rut that I'm in.

    You are so right the sunshine will help get you moving. Congrats on not gaining, that is a step in the right direction so obviously you are not doing that badly. Please do not let yourself lose control, force yourself to move a little. The more you move if even a short walk will make you feel more on control.

I've been gone for a month

Wednesday, January 01, 2014

the fact that I've only gained 10 lbs is a miracle. Life has been hectic and I haven't been making the best choices but I'm back on track for good things this year.

Pity Party Over

Sunday, November 10, 2013

Okay so life has thrown up on me, but I'm giving it back. Time for me to get back on track. Life is going to happen and I'm going to have to be a big girl and deal with it. Life is completely turned upside down and to top it off I can't find my scale, so numbers are out the window for right now. I'll just have to use common sense and track everything. I want to impress myself when I find the scale and realize I kicked butt.

    emoticon I kind of like that you scale is missing in action, because you will feel great when you step on it to see what your efforts have produced. emoticon emoticon

    emoticon and how pleased you will be that you didn't depend on the scale to do so. Life goes on and we just need to do the best we can with the situations we have to hurdle over.

Completely derailed

Wednesday, November 06, 2013

I was doing so well and I had my head back in the game, and then it ALL happened, you name it it happened. My husband went back to school, my cousin decided to sell the house we're living in and part of that was to stage the house so basically remove any sign that we (6 people) live here. Dealing with a name change at work, so crazy busy and chaos wherever I go. I have had no time to exercise, we've been told not to cook at home, which would only be an issue if we were ever home long enough to cook. Last week would have been my brothers 40th birthday and it is all so overwhelming. I don't even know where to begin to get back on track. I'm so grateful for SP and hope this blog is my first step into getting back on track.

    My goodness you have a lot on your plate at presant. When life throws us curves we must go with the flow as best we can. Sorry so much is happening all at once. Hoping your blog is a motivator for you to start taking small steps into getting back on track.

Life certainly does happen sometimes. I hope it calms down for you soon.

    Live gets crazy when you do it right, especially this time of year. Developing healthy habits will see you through. Make taking care of yourself a priority. You can't take care of anyone else if you get sick.
Remember that you are not in this alone.

    I am so sorry to hear about the chaos that is going on in your life right now. I am glad that you are here and still willing to spark. I hope things can calm down enough for you to get back into the game. All I can say is baby steps. Any small thing you can do will be great considering the things you have going on. Prayers going out to you and yours. emoticon emoticon

Proud of myself

Monday, October 14, 2013

Although I've been doing very well at the couch to 5K program I'm doing, a lot of the motivation came from my husband. He would run, then I would run. Today he didn't want to run but I had decided yesterday to enjoy Thanksgiving and some treats guilt free because I would be right back on track today. So I got up and ran and then came home for a healthy breakfast. So proud of myself for keeping a promise to myself!

Today was my turn to motivate him and it feels great!
