All about choices!

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

So today I didn't get a chance to work out. I usually do a class with some girls right after school, but today I had a meeting and then had to pick up my baby from daycare. We then had a supper invite and by the time I got home I was not feeling like working out! Here is where you think I forced myself to work out....wrong! I told myself there was nothing wrong with taking a rest day, although I felt pretty guilty...but I shouldn't waste the night in front of the tv without having worked out. So instead I went upstairs and FINALLY started to organize my office which has been in chaos since Christmas! A little bit of exercise and a lot of feeling productive....all about choices!

    I guess I worded my blog wrong....I didn't mean to sound like I compare myself to my twin....quite the opposite! I admire her and look up to her! We have both struggled with weight our entire lives and when I got married she was at her highest weight and felt very unhappy, while I was very happy with how I felt and looked. Now we have reversed roles again, she is my motivation because I know if she can do it so can I! We have done it before together and she is rooting for me to do it again. I love her to death, she is my best friend!!!!

    I know it's not easy, but you have to emoticon
comparing yourself to your twin. You are each individuals
and should just love each other & be happy that you have
each other, which I am sure you do. Think on the happy things,
the fun things and don't obsess over your weight. Do what you can
do and do it well and it will all be ok.

Here's to emoticon

Every day I'm struggling

Thursday, January 17, 2013

So I have really hit a rough patch, two days of not working out turned into 4 days of bad eating...following my usual pattern this is where I would give up. However, since I have not followed my usual pattern thus far ( using SP to its full potential I have ever done till now) I am determined to not give up! My goal to have 50lbs off by July is becoming harder with each day I throw away, but instead of wallowing in defeat I am taking on the challenge and I am going to do th is! If I am 50 lbs lighter and it's August first instead of July, I'm sure you won't hear me complaining :) I have decided that I need to set some "mini goals" to help get me back on track.
1. Be below 200 by the end of January
2. Be down to 195 by my daughter's first birthday (feb.27)
3. Be between 185-189 by Easter break

Here I go again!!!

    We do waste time that could be better spent.

Don't put too much pressure on yourself to be a certain
weight by a certain time. Just do you best...

The results will come.

    Small steps and mini goals are good. Once you reach them (and you will) then it will be just enough motivation to start the next goal! Keep up the good work! Never give up!!!!!!

The Dreaded Sugar Addiction

Monday, January 14, 2013

I am always amazed when people think I'm being funny by saying I am a "food addict"...because I am! I love food, crave food, binge with food and think about it all the time...pretty sure those are the signs of a true addict.
BUT SP has become my 12 Step Program...I still struggle, this weekend was wicked but tonight while fighting the urge to just eat everything in sight I quickly went onto SP to get motivated again. I am writing this to all the other food addicts out there...you are not alone, it isn't easy but we CAN overcome it....I'm not giving up and neither should you!
:)

Love being an Elementary teacher...hate the flu season that goes along with it!

Saturday, January 12, 2013

Ugh! I thought I was beating it but man this flu has the better of me. Can't work out so I have to make sure I'm making the right food choices. Hoping I can push through and jump right back onto the workout wagon by Monday at the latest. I am not giving up this time, I am doing this!
