Not so hard

Monday, October 13, 2008

Wow, I did it! I actually did a 30 minute walk this morning. I am going out of town this afternoon but will be back tomorrow, and I am hoping we get back early so I can get in another walk.
Well so far so good, I do pray for you all to have a successful and blessed week.

    Exercising first thing in the morning really sets your day up nicely...too bad I can never wake up early enough.

Again I try

Monday, October 06, 2008

Ok, so I messed up last week with the exercise but it's a new week and I am ready to "just do it" this time. But there is more I need to confess. I gambled too much money and haven't told my family yet. Why, why do I do this? I didn't leave us broke but we can't buy things we want. My husband took my debt card last time but I think I should surrender it again. So that is my next goal, to not gamble for the next 2 1/2 months. Now I feel relieved to say it here, now back to business of weight loss.

    Every day at a time. Just know that you can do this. We have faith in you, you just have to believe it yourself. Not always easy, I know, but YOU CAN!!!

Keep looking for the help and you will surely find it. The day you stop looking is the day you will be in trouble.

Keep going.

Your SparkFriend

    I am sorry about your gambling debt, if it continues to be a problem,go get help for it as it is an addiction just like our food addictions. You want to be a proud mama and wife, you can do it, you are worth the effort. New day-- it is a do over! We can not change the past but we can make better tomorrows

  It will be OK, it is best to fess up to your hubby on the gambeling, so you can deal with it head on!! I fell off the diet wagon too, so I know how it is. You CAN DO IT!!

    Joe Anne,

Hey girl, we all mess up sometime. Just get back on track and do a little exercise of some kind every day, even if its only 10 minutes of walking. Gambling, ummmm, I have a tendency to gamble to much too. I end up stopping when the money runs out and have to wait until next payday. Good luck on your personal challenges. One pound at a time, one step at a time, whatever it takes.

I did it! emoticon I did my 3 days of exercise for the week. I'll try it again for next week but add 1 day of weight training, unless I can get back to Curves.
Now I am off to bed early, because I have to work tomorrow the early shift.
GOODNIGHT Spark friends

Exercise is so good. I'm loving it!! Goodness. Did I really just say that? No, seriously, I love it. If I could afford to go back to Curves, I would. I used to be Manager of a Curves just over 3 years ago, but had to leave due to ill health. I would urge anyone to go that can afford it. I don't know what the fees are in the States, but over here in the UK they do have some really good offers going. Hey!! Who knows, they may give me X-Manager rates. emoticon Keep up the good work and you will certainly get where you need to be.

  Congratulation! It feels so good to meet our goals. Taking your lunch to work will be a big help. I'm used to it now but it does take some planning and work but I try to cook a weeks worth at one time. Thank you for adding me as a friend.

Day 2 of 3

Friday, September 26, 2008

Whoo Hoo! I finally got my second day of exercise in by doing 25 minutes of walking and 5 minutes of weights. I also did this first thing in the morning which felt really good and lasted all day.
Now I just need to get caught up on my water intake for the day. Have a blessed weekend SparkFriends :)

Today was my first full 8 hours of work and boy do my feet and body ache. I am so worn out, so I skipped exercise today but for sure I can't miss tomorrow. I hoping to do a 3x a week schedule for a couple of weeks and then work up to 5 days. I only could do 20 minutes yesterday but at least I got started again.
I've bought lunch stuff for my work so I don't have to get the fatty stuff there. Today's stuff was pretty good. Ok so I am off to get some much wanted/needed rest. Goodnight ZZZzzzz

    20 minutes is great. I am on a tight schedule also and most often I can only get in about 25 or 30 minutes a day. I pack my lunch to. I can't be trusted to not take the cheetos instead of the apple.

    Hey 20 minutes is a WHOLE lot more than no minutes. You are doing great!

    20 mins is better than nothing. Little at a time and you'll get there. I have just got over a 2 week plateau. I thought I was never going to do it, but I changed a few things around and it worked. Yeah!!!

Resting your body is also so important. I should practice what I preach. I sometimes think I am invincible, but, guess what? I'm not. LOL. I forget to slow down and pace myself sometimes and my body gives me a kick in the butt and slows itself down for me. I then can't so anything for a couple of days.

You've had such a tough time and I really can empathise with you. I lost my first husband and baby when I was only 17 years old and I thought the world would stop. That was 36 years ago and I am still here. If you want to know more and talk more, please don't hesitate to mail me. Take care and keep going the way you are and you will certainly achieve what you set out to do.
