Trying to take one day at a time.. as well as one meal at a time..

Thursday, October 03, 2013

The week has been pretty good. I worked out on Monday for 30 minutes, Tuesday break, Wednesday 50 mins- and today after work. I really enjoy working out for the most part. Since I gain my weight back. My joints are feeling it and it is a lot harder to pound it out. I struggle day to to day- but I love starting the day. I really did focus on working out this week so far and I have done a pretty good job. I tend to be an emotional eater. I quit smoking! The best thing I have ever done for myself. I have not smoked since 1/10/13. I am coming in on year! I have noticed since I stopped smoking- I replace food with it. I need to stop that. I am trying to get a good hold of it, but then something traumatic comes up. I have to realize not let things that I can not control rule my life. I am my own destiny.

    it is hard to quit smoking. i know people who seem to quit every year but give up after a short time. i also struggle with some yoga poses once i gained weight. i am flexable enough but flab is in my way. i lost it once i can do it again.

Starting over...

Monday, September 30, 2013

Wow it has been some time since I have been on. I have managed to gain all my weight back. I am going to fight against my over eating and finally lose all the weight and start on feeling healthy. I am not dieting.. Dieting just is not good for me. I need to change my lifestyle around. When ever I want a snack- which I know I will want one. I am going to go running/ walking or just do something to get my mind off it. I have been emotionally eating and stress eating. I go to school and work full time. It is challenge but worth it. One day I will be a nurse! I cant wait. I need to push through my hurdles and stop feeling sorry for myself and just do it!

  emoticon I can totally relate to your blog (apart from the being a nurse bit!).
You CAN do it - just be patient and keep trying. There may well be setbacks along the way but you'll get there in the end!

    I ate so poorly when I was a student. Lack of preparation I guess. Stress is tough to beat. Have a good week.

Finding peace...

Tuesday, May 14, 2013

It is such a great feeling finding peace and forgiveness. I had an ex boyfriend that was once a boyfriend then just a friend for 10 years it was going on so long. We had our good times and bad times. In July 2012 we finally ended speaking to each other. I believe we are just not good for one another. It had been 10 months and I did something for myself and for him to finally forgive him. I have moved on. I have forgiven him for a long time and made peace with the situation, but never actually spoke to him and said I was sorry. I finally reached out to him last week. He finally gave me some comfort in closure. It was closure for me. I am not to sure if he will contact me again or anything, but I finally feel complete peace- running today was pure serenity! I am the happiest I have been in a long time! Sometimes we just need to do things even though we may know the it may hurt or make you better. This certainly has made me feel so good!

27 more days til the half marathon..

Monday, April 22, 2013

I am a little disappointed in myself. I thought I would of lost more weight- however I am still really proud of myself. I have been running a lot. I have toned up so much. I feel like I am in the best shape I have ever been in! I am so happy that I am out there doing runs and walks. On Satruday I did the Susan B Koman 5k it was great and feel great to help and support a great cause!

    Good luck on your half marathon, and if you are in the best shape of your life that is what matters. We don't worry about that scale right?

Plateau..

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

I am not going to get discourage. I have been at a plateau since Feb.. Still weighing 133.4 - I am actually very happy with this weight, but would like to get closer to by goal 125.. I feel so energized though and people are noticing how in shape I am. I ran 8.8 miles in 2 hours the other day- I am losing a ton of inches.. I have to keep telling myself. I am gaining muscle. I am also so proud- I make much healthier choices when it comes to food! Today since is rainy here- going to test out the insanity! Cant wait!

    You are doing awesome! It is frustrating when we think the scale should be moving & hard to focus on the positive...all those inches lost & the muscle gain. I have to keep reminding myself this. ;)
