Wednesdays stuff

Wednesday, February 17, 2010

I had to go out of town yesterday and I missed a few errands but I am caught up now. My exercise has not been going as planned but tomorrow is a new day and I am ready.
My husband bought me an IPOD touch and I am just loving it, I've been downloading my music playlists and videos, and a couple game apps and diet stuff too. The only thing is my daughter is hooked on it too and I think my husband may also be too, he likes the poker game app.
Ok fellow sparkers I am off to bed and will be back for updates.

Dear GOD, help me to remember that when I am facing a seemingly hopeless situation, I can always find You in the darkness of my night. Amen

***********************
Many times I have called upon my Lords name to help me and He has given me what I needed. I am feeling so blessed this week and I pray that you all too will have hope in GOD to get where we need to be.

My GOD is great :)

Wednesday, February 10, 2010

I had been feeling so down, depressed and unmotivated. But GOD had something for me and today it was revealed, when my daughter told us she was pregnant. She was afraid we would be angry, because she is not married. She does have boyfriend and he is devoted to her and her son (Darius).
We were very excited for her, not angry. Although as parents we all have our hopes for something different, but we have faith and trust that GOD is in control and knows the outcome. Right now I am so excited that I want to tell the rest of our family but my daughter wants to wait.
So now I have more reasons to get healthy, oh I am just so excited and happy.

    Congratulations on your next grandchild to arrive in your life. May God continue to watch and care for your family. It is great that you are so supportive to your daughter because this is the kind of hope she needs to have during her pregnancy.

Needing inspiration :(

Monday, February 08, 2010

I have my goals and yet I have not started working on them. Ok I mean not worked on all of them, but I have been sticking to journaling my food, drinking water, and taking my meds.
It's just the exercise, why do I keep putting it off? I know it is the biggest factor in weightloss but I just don't want to do it. I think having my meds changed is also something that I have get used to. It's for depression, Lexepro, and it is something new to me but I am hoping that it helps.
Ok I'm going to do a 15 minute walk, and no excuses...........I will walk emoticon

    I have the same problem. I just can't get my a** in gear for exercise either. I did find something though. I found a book called "8 Minutes To A Perfect Body" by someone named Jorge something. Now, I am not saying by any means that I'm going to have a perfect body from working out 8 minutes a day, BUT 8 minutes a day is more then the 0 minutes a day I was doing ... and believe it or not, I actually do feel something when I'm done.

Ok, so I get up 15 minutes earlier in the morning. THIS I can do. It doesn't interfere in my day too much and once I get it done, it's done. Maybe you can look into it too.

Listen, you think you're bad? I have a 2 month complimentary membership to a gym with all the bells and whistles given to me by my chiropractor. Do you think I have gone yet to sign up? lol

Good luck and have a great day!

    I have the same problem with exercise and I also have depression. Getting the courage to exercise is very difficult. I finally told myself that the nike logo just do it is great because I will never feel comfortable or happy exercising I should just do it.

Just do it! Dont think about it, get out there girl we are behind you!

    You need to find something that you enjoy doing that moves your body. I hate organized workouts but I love to swim. I could stay in the water all day until I look like a prune. I am up to 20 laps a day and I also wear my pedometer so I am counting steps too. You may not realize how many steps you are walking every day. Pedometers are cheap and you can strive for 5 more steps each day. I started out in the 200s and am up to around 2,000.

    I was having this problem for the last week. I was exercising and then I just stopped. Someone told me to set my mind to exercising just 10 minutes a day. I find that when I do this, I usually find myself walking more or mentally building up my stamina to go swim which I will surely do for more than 10 min. I find it's all in my head. Setting small mental goals for me is easier for me to get started.

    emoticon I know exactly what you mean, I got off my exercise schedule the past two weeks and now it feels overwhelming to get started again. I don't know what is wrong with my brain, I feel better when I exercise but the resistances is so strong. emoticon
We have to keep on keeping on. Let us know if you did your walk, I will do my exercise when I get home tonight. We can hold each other accountable!

    I can relate, It helped me by finding some activity that I like to do. Even if it's just mall walking, checking out all the cute clothes. I love nature and walking around this pretty area near my apartment, tall trees. I zone out, listening to music as I walk and It is peaceful. You might also want to try to find a buddy to go walking with, that could get you motivated. :) Good luck, You can do it!

Weekend events

Sunday, February 07, 2010

Wow, it's been more than a week since I last blogged, but it's ok because nothing exciting has happened.
Ok not true, something happened although it was not exciting to me. My daughter moved out and got her own appartment, and now lives about 10 miles away. My grandson says he like his new house but he will be staying with gramps and grams for 4 nights a week as him mom is working and has to be there by6 am.
I am fine with this arrangement because I can see my grandson, he is my life now,

Now that it's raining I think I'm going to do one of my WATP dvds. As for my eating I will do "THE NEXT RIGHT THING"
