Again, and again, again..........

Monday, August 24, 2009

I know I'm bad, I just can't seem to get things going. Most times I start out good but then I start slacking, or gettin lazy and then I start again. Oh well, I'm not ready to give up so I'll start again.

    You slipped, that does not make you bad (human maybe, but not bad). You are not giving up and that makes you great!!! You can do this.....we are all fighting this
weight battle together and we will overcome the power that food seems to have on us. Baby steps, my friend. Never give up!!!

    You've heard the saying, "one step back and two steps forward." Well, sometimes I suspect the saying should be: "two steps back and fall forward on your face!"

Just keep plugging. Old habit die hard!

    you know what they say ..."if at first you don't succeed, try try again". As long as you don't give up you always have the chance of winning the battle.
Good luck

    You are a member of the CAD team. Do you have a book for the plan? My suggestion would be to read a few pages each day. As you read and learn, it will help you to keep your focus. Don't quit!

    It is a journey, we can't quit, but sometimes we do take the wrong road and have to find our way back. Welcome back, friend. : ) teri

    You'll get there! Just keep going. One step at a time. It will come off. And remember, God loves you just as you are. He isn't condemning you; so don't condemn yourself.

    This is more a comment than a question to you: WHO put this idea in our heads that, if we don't follow a certain path, we are "bad"? Who tells us that if we "slip up" along that path that we are "bad"? WE are not "bad". You know God loves you. Yes, life is a struggle. Yes, some struggle over weight and health issues. Does that make us "bad"? No, it does NOT.

YOU are struggling with weight issues but you are LOVED by God and by your sisters here on SP.

Every morning when you wake up, remind yourself of this.

    Listen, I've been there. Started and then quit or ate something bad and then felt guilty.

You need to really psych yourself into truly wanting this. For me, all I had to do is look in my full length mirror and just my clothes not fitting. When I had to go up a size when I went pant shopping recently I said "That's It!".

I've been back on the wagon now and lost 3 lbs and at least 1/2 pant size already because I psyched myself and know that losing weight and inches is what I want.

Don't you want that too? I'm here if you need support!

    For God did not give us the spirit of timidity, but a spirit of POWER, of LOVE, and of SELF-DISCIPLINE, 2Timothy 1:7

I hang onto this verse when I feel weak and want to give into the urge to eat when I should not or the desire to skip the exercise. He has given me the POWER to conquer my weaknesses, and the SELF-DISCIPLINE to conquer my weakness and the ability to LOVE doing it! (And love myself while I am at it.)

Grab hold to the verse - Notice that the verse says "US" not me. This gift has been given to you too!

    I go through the same thing also. The important this is we never give up. Just take it one day, one hour, one minute, one second at a time. We can do this. I just know we can. Hang in there...

    I go through the same thing... most days are a struggle to reach my goals, but I KEEP TRYING! That's the key, right? I seem to "start over" A LOT.

Let's start over again today! Right now, ok?

    You can never give up! Just keep putting one foot in front of the other. Focus on one thing you can change today. One bad habit that you can get rid of. And if you need me you know where to find me. Marco!

"trouble goal"

Saturday, August 15, 2009

The spark strategy "trouble goal" defines this as a goal that just seems to not get done, no matter how many times you plan it, or tried it. At least thats what I got about it, but to me my trouble goal is that I often write my goal and yet I don't follow through with it.
Daily exercise - 15 minutes+
Every day I plan this and yet something comes up each time. No, I mean I let things get in the way. I really want to exercise in the morning but everytime I want to go, I have no babysitter for my grandson, and when there is someone it's already after 9 am and I've lost my motivation by then.
BUT, tomorrow I have no excuse to not go. I will make it through this time, I will get past this trouble goal.

    Way to own that trouble goal! Going from "something comes up every time" to "I let things get in the way" is a huge step. Here's to taking control of your life and not letting it control you. Good job!

    I crank up the tunes and dance while I am cleaning, try to get my heart beat up and work up a sweat while I do my chores. I work full time and really have trouble getting all the exercise time in that I would like to, so this works well, 2 birds with one stone. : ) teri

  Good luck with your trouble goal. Keep in mind that heavy cleaning counts as exercise and if you are like me--a heavy laundry day can squeak in a little strehgth training:)

The unexpected

Monday, August 03, 2009

I made plans but didn't get to follow through with any. I ended up going on a trip with my husband for the weekend and most of it was driving. I didn't watch what I ate but I know I didn't I have seconds and I drank as much water as I could. In this Arizona heat you have to chug the H2O, so it was a good thing we had the ice chest. My other good thing was taking my meds on schedule, and that's about it. I did enjoy this alone time with my honey and we plan on taking another trip in December.
Ok, now that a new week is started, I am also ready to restart and complete my goals......so here i goooooo..........................>

    Just take a deep breath, forget about yesterday, and start another week looking forward. Good luck with your goals. As a diabetic myself I realize that as long as you kept up with the meds on your trip you won half the battle.
