Goodbye to Anger

Tuesday, May 01, 2012

I have asked anger to move out, as it has more than overstayed its welcome, and has caused so much destruction almost wrecking the place.

As I wait for anger to pack up and leave, I have invited love and peace to move in permanently, as I believe it will be a better place if they take up residence. As i prepare with excitement for their arrival, I respectfully and forcibly ask anger to go as soon as possible, so that the damage caused can be repaired.

Although there may be room for them all peace and love will not be able to and choose not to co exist with anger which i totally understand.

So as i say goodbye to anger I say it has been life changing and I have learnt alot which I am grateful for , as I wouldn't be able to appreciate peace and love.

Anger is able to stay briefly from time to time but permanent residence is no longer available.

Running Again, Yippee

Sunday, November 21, 2010

I had to stop running for a couple of mths due to injury and improper footwear, but that is all sorted now.
I have missed running so much, not just the physical benefits but what it does for me mentally. I feel alot stronger, clearer and focused when running.
Due to it being a few mths since I last run I was easing myself back in with my own version of the couch to 5k programme, but found after the second week that I was able to run 30 mins straight which feels great and is testament to continuous working out.
All my running is done in the gym, but I am planning to run a 5k before the end of march, so i'll have to take it outside.
I am so happy that i managed to exceed my goal of running by end of Dec.
Just had to get that out, because i find i dont give myself enough credit for the things i do.

    Hi Morgan Here. I know that you'd visited emotional eatting -- and joined our small group of ladies trying to quit night time eating. I'm not sure what happened. It looks like the last post was sometime in November. Anyway, when I clicked on your profile and saw this blog, it reminded me of myself. I too am a runner. I had a long-term injury that required surgery. And I too am BACK!! You are so right. It feels so good to be running again. It does wonders for the mind. I suppose that's why I've slacked off on posting to the group, because when I run during the day, I'm calmer at night and tend not to over eat. Anyway, add me as a friend, and I'll do the same. Maybe we can cheer each other on to doing some long distance races. Hugs.

    Way to go on meeting that goal on the work you did while not running to keep your muscles strong! I had to quit for a couple of months too because of some serious sciatica issues not related to running. I've just started back about 5 weeks ago or so. But I had just started running about a month or two before that happened so I'm just a beginner building back up. But I have been so happy to be able to get back to it too and know how you feel!

In order to reach my goal towards health and fitness and to lose the excess weight i'll need to:-

-Do cardio 4-5 times, a mixture of high and low impact at home, in the gym and classes (so it doesn't get boring)

- Strength training on the upper and lower body and core, twice a wk,( so that everything can look the way i want it too)

-make sure im eating fruit and veg everyday

- drink at least 2ltrs of water a day

- cut down on the amount of alcohol I drink

- stay within my calorie range

- confront my emotional eating ( instead of eating and drinking through it)

- gather as much info as possible on emotional eating so that im better prepared for it and can come up with strategies to overcome it

- log on to and earn between 30 - 50 sparkpoints daily

- be active on the message boards

- allow room for error ( im not perfect and im still learning)

- plan meals in advance ( so i dont fall back on a takeaway)

- take advantage of all the support available to me ( there are no rewards for being a martyr, i have learnt this the hard way)

- reward myself along the way and be kind to myself ( even when the results aren't exactly what i want

- take it one day at a time

    One step at a time with a goal in mind...that will take you (and me) where we want to go. Without those targets you just wander in the wilderness and end up far from where you dreamed. Let's GO!

Made It Through

Thursday, September 09, 2010

Im having one of those days where i am my greatest enemy and i want to sabotage my best efforts because im feelin unworthy and tired and generally not great, but im not going to.
I honestly want to make a change in my life and i realise in order to do that I cant keep doing the things that have made me want to change. It isnt easy and I need to fully face that fact, but I also know that im strong and determined enough to do it.
I feel proud today because instead of giving into the feeling and eating a large chocolate bar washed down with wine, i just cried it out, logged onto sp then wrote my blog.
