May 17, 2013 Friday :)

Friday, May 17, 2013

Yea! It's Friday! I have had a pretty good week over all. I have worked out everyday, and most days I have done at least 2 things. My eating has been pretty good overall, everyday hasn't been perfect, but I am trying not to let that get me down this time. I think I have finally realized that I am not going to lose this weight as fast as I would like too. But I am also not going to let it bring me down. I am loving all the working out I am getting done, I am going to hate it when it gets super hot! But I am going to keep going! Hope everyone has a good weekend! emoticon

    I love going outside for walks and dread when it gets so hot and humid. Also, allergies are getting me to stay inside right now. Hope you have a great weekend and get to go outside and enjoy the nice weather!

Today I got on the scale and it was up. I am not going to let that derail me this time. Normally I would get depressed about that and binge. I have decided the number on the scale is not going to control me any more. It is time for me to get healthy, for me and my kids. I do not like the way I look and I know I am the only person who can change that. I am going to continue to exercise and try to make healthier eating choices. Here is to my new beginning!

    We all lose it at some point. I just read someone's blog today mentioning the Japanese saying: If you fall 7 times, pick yourself up 8. Good advice, I think. We all have to keep on. We all fail. We all have to start over.

    Boy that scale has lots of power over us, maybe we should only get on it once a week & strive to get it down. It will NOT win this week!

    Bah! Sorry you're struggling with this. It's an issue I've just freshly re-wrapped my head around today, with the commitment to stay mostly off the scale as I get stronger and leaner. We make long-term changes for long-term results and the rewards become self-repeating.

As I've been frequently reminded from some of my amazing SP friends, scales have very little credibility anyway.

    Can I just tell you that you have a FANTASTIC attitude! I used to be the same way (get down, frustrated, etc.) and binge. And I might not do too bad the first day, but it would just open up a gateway to unhealthy eating and then more frustration!!! When I finally stopped letting it get me down, and realized that it didn't matter what the scale said every time, it mattered how I reacted to it, and that my goal was health and continued health, well, it made a huge difference! I hope it does for you too!

Day 11 of morning exercise

Thursday, April 11, 2013

Well, so far I have done it! I have gotten up every morning and got in some exercise before work. Tomorrow my daughter is having her tonsils out, her adenoids out and tubes put in her ears. Of course we have to be over tot he surgery center EARLY in the morning. I am not going to be able to get in my morning exercise. I just hope I am not to stressed to still fit it in tomorrow night. I really want to keep up with my streak and I am just afraid even this one change in my routine will throw me off! I would like to get some new videos so that I can mix things up a little. I will let you know how it goes! At least better weather is supposed to come back, so maybe that will keep me motivated!

    Wow, good for you for starting a new goal and sticking with it! I bet after the first few days you started to really get into the routine and might even miss it tomorrow. Routine can definitely make a huge difference!

As for tomorrow, you can do it! Just remind yourself that you're strong, worth taking the time, and that exercise will help decrease your stress. If you give yourself permission to skip out on your goal, you won't follow through. Planned breaks are definitely a good thing, but it sounds like you're wanting to exercise tomorrow, so go for it! =) Good luck.

Wednesday 4/3/13 THE TALK

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

Ok.. I know it is early in April, and I just started working out in the morning... only on day 3 of every day.. but I had to talk myself into getting out of bed this morning! I literally laid in bed for probably 10 minutes and tried to talk myself into not getting up to exercise. I won and did end up getting up and exercising, and of course I was happy I did. But I was thinking wow, I am only on my 3rd day of this and I am already trying to talk myself out of it, that is not good! I think what has really helped me is this months challenge. So far I don't think I have completed anything I have started on here and I really want that to change.... Hopefully this will get easier and I won't have to talk myself into getting out of bed every day! emoticon

    Hope it gets easier for you....are you doing an exercise that you enjoy? Do you have an exercise goal like running a 5K? There is a 5k training program here on Sparkpeople and training for something really motivates me. If I am not training towards a goal then I also get too bored and just quit or burn out faster. It really helps you get up when the exercise is something FUN.

40th birthday :)

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

So today is a milestone birthday! the big 4-0. I had a plan to lose 40 pounds by my 40th birthday.... DIDN'T happen..... when I knew that wasn't going to happen I changed the plan to 20 pounds.... DIDN'T happen..... so I changed it again.... also DIDN"T happen. So after starting to read the spark book a friend let me borrow, I decided to take the April challenge and work out in the mornings. I have decided just because I didn't reach any of the goals I had set out too, wasn't going to stop me from making new goals... I was going to follow the 2 steps back, 1 step forward mentality... I have learned if you give up, the only place you will end up is further away from where you started! So my goal now is to exercise at least 5 days a week in the morning before I go to work! Just because I didn't reach my goal by my 40 th birthday doesn't mean I can't start another one. I have decided since I didn't GET healthy by 40 that now I am going to START at 40! I know I can do this!

This year I will hit my big SIX-OH. I had gotten near my goal a few years ago, and then an injury set me back. Thankfully, I did not regain EVERYTHING. Now I am where I was about 7 years ago, not yet in "ONEderland", but closer, anyway, than I was this past summer. It's harder, being older, and dealing with arthritis. So - you have a twenty year advantage over me. If I can stick to it, so can you, sweety! Blessings to you on the journey to a healthy lifestyle, which is more than just weight loss!
