I have tracked my food for 4 days and am eating and feeling great. I haven't exercised this week, but I am resting after some tough weeks at work. I really wanted to get my eating in check before adding in the stress of getting my exercise in.
I have realized that I am a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to this stuff. I want to do everything right and when I do not achieve this perfection, I beat myself up. I need to work on not trying to be so perfect.

    Good job! No need to be perfect all the time. Just work at it and I am sure you can do it!!

    Good to see you back on SP. I have been MIA as well and have just started logging my food again. I'm a bit of a perfectionist, too, but I've told myself that right now I just need to focus on eating better. I'm trying to break it into smaller, more manageable pieces. Hope we can support each other through this -- chat soon!

    Hey Heather,

In everyday life, it's hard to do everything right. Life interferes, and you are unable to do everything perfectly. You just have to do the best you can. Don't beat yourself up about it, applaud yourself for the things you have done right.

    Hey Heather!

Glad to see you are doing well with the eating and feeling great! I think it is great that you are trying not to beat yourself up. I have found that I have periods where I can do well on eating but just can not make myself work out and other times when I am working out consistently but can not get the eating under control. But doing something better than I was before means I am moving in the right direction...

I am pretty encouraged right now, I am eating well and working out (I am doing STS again, goodness, but I LOVE this program!) I decided to do each week 2x instead of just once through. This way I can make sure I've got my weight right and when we do exercises that do right side and then left side (or vice versa) I can follow Cathe the first week and the second week I alternate. For some reason I really like doing it this way. I have jusst finished week 7 of meso II. I am going to have to push up my workouts so I can finish the second and final week of meso II before I go to the mainland on Thursday but I've got a plan so hopefully I can stick with it. Work has been uber crazy busy, but going fairly well.

So glad to see you posted a blog - it is great to hear how you are doing!

- sarah

I wrote this on my fitness page too....I am so proud of myself for getting 30 minutes on the elliptical tonight. I know that Chalene will say things like "give me 5 minutes and I will make you do longer" or "remember how you feel right now (when you are done with a workout) and that will help you fuel your next"...however, for me it isnt the endorphines it is the pride that I feel for doing it.
I have had a hard time being consistent in my exercise lately. I keep starting a new program...CE, TF, just doing my own thing and quickly fizzle out. I think sometimes I miss belonging to a gym. Now I have too much invested in my home gym to join anything.
I wish I had others in my life that enjoyed fitness. My SO will take walks with me and Willie, but it is now starting to get a bit hot for that.
I guess I will keep celebrating my exercise victories and enjoying my time.

    emoticonYou are doing it! I know what you mean about the DVDs though. Once you've done them, it's hard to get back into them. I have tried several times to start over on CE, but it fizzles out for me.

I have a set of DVDs for Kettlework (kettlebells), and I restarted yesterday. About 5 minutes into the workout, I wanted to quit, but I talked myself into continuing. I want to be consistent, so I can't allow myself to quit.

Another week is over. I am always happy when the week is over and I get to do some non-day job type of things.

I will be honest, I hate Wednesdays. I have for a long time. I thought it had something to do with that was tied to my Masters as I used to have my classes on Wednesday nights. It has been almost 3 years since I finished, so I would think that the stigma had worn off.
I think for some reason I just start to feel drained. Could it be that my job wears me out? Could it be I start getting less and less sleep as the week goes on? Does my drive to do more wittle?
I do not know.

I just finished week 2 of Turbo Fire. I am following the chart given with the program. I started with week two, skipping the intro week as this is the second go at the program for me. I took measurements today and am so hoping to see improvement in this area. Of course I also want to lose some of the pounds that I put on while dealing with my grief.
I recognize what I have been doing to myself with food and sorrow, it really is time to work better on me.

  Hi Heather
Just wanted to say i'm glad your back and here to work on your that's important your right.
I haven't spoken to you in so long! We'll have to catch up like you said because when you say sorrow does that mean with your mom??? Is everything OK??
How do you like the Turbo Fire?? I have seen it on tv it looks so good but I haven't broken down and bought the set yet I have the turbo jam I love that and I have Charlean Extreme which is really good for building muscle but someone in another team told me Turbo Fire was really fast paced and too hard for her so I never looked into it. Do you love it? I like fast pace workouts, goes by faster too and you sweat more.
Hope your ok!! Miss ya
