Life is like a camera focus on what is important ,capture the good times Develop from the negatives and if things do not work out just take another shot
I had gone to another family picnic yesterday after work, and you already know what I devoured with out naming any one food item!! I felt like a total over sized blimp arriving home. I sat in my recliner having the gall to feel sorry for myself when no one at the party pried my mouth opened and shoveled the food in like a locomotive needing steam to keep on chugging along.
I woke up this morning , still feeling like an over stuffed Thanksgiving dinner from the abundance of food I ate on Saturday, I went on my sparks and read the message Barbiee52 posted on my page regarding the camera. I just had to post what she sent me , something clicked in my brain, ( thanks so much Barb ) I carry a camera with me where ever I go ,never relating it to my soulful self when feeling down about my weight and wanting to give up. Did someone ever give you that ahhh moment !!
I have to work today,and knowing I had to eat something to fuel my body it was a small healthy breakfast. I work 5 hours today with no lunch , I would have come home and ate big ,because I would be so hungry. I am taking some protein in today for a snack instead of eating nothing, I would have never had breakfast because of the way I feel, but I am giving it another shot! Thanks to Barb for making me see the negative and developing it into another shot

Every single time I am on a roll I feel within the very depth of my soul I am going to conquer, I am so on the game. I know I am not the only one, I have read the same thing over and over from others " I am starting over" I have said that myself a zillion times. What is with some of us. I once thought in a fleeting moment," gee if I do this what happens if I can not maintain it, so what is the use " I thought am I afraid of failure once I get there, of back sliding? I only thought that for a few seconds,but is that what is really holding me back?Then I have an awesome cousin Tammy that is out there every day eating clean, and working out, plus running races, she works full time has a family,but still does it.
I feel so super when I am working out, and eating so very very healthy then all of a sudden I stop like a bolt of lightning struck me, sure I let fleeting moments crop in my brain and say get back up, but bam a clap of thunder in my brain knocks me unsteady . Then after so much time passes I waddle up like duck and get going once again, until I am down again. I am sick of starting over, I want to be that person that can eat healthy and work out not just for a few weeks,but all the time. I know it is not realistic to have that 365 days a year , but if I do slip I want to be right back instead of lingering and struggling for days or weeks to get back!

I arrived home from vacation in the mountains & had a lot of time to think. I was reading Bobbie's blog and she mentioned how much time and energy she spent on the issue with her home. I to spend too much time on things that are frivolous, however Bobbie's situation is a lot more involved & much more serious. Sometimes it is good to get away and come back with fresh new ideas regarding our selves. I want to look at each day as one single day instead of lumping all my days I have coming and already feel like a failure. I have a tendency to look at all the tomorrows that are not even here yet, and worry.
I need to be more consistent in planning meals, I got away from that, it was turning out to be anything thrown together and it was not a good thing. Using the excuse of too tired after work to walk, when I even know how good I felt after walking. Why would anyone stop when they know in their mind how good it felt??? Any one out there have an answer for that one??/

The last I posted was in February, I was reading so many other blog's thinking oh WOW I need to do what they are doing to meet my goals. You know what I did I sat here in the comfy of my home all winterreading and eating and non exercising ,my husband shouts DO YOU FEEL THE BURN !!!
I get up in the night to go to the bath room and get something to eat. I cry secretly within myself, become angry with myself, all the while smiling for the world and screaming on the inside.
I have an appointment with a Doctor that deals with weight and eating ,was told many successes come from her office. When I called the receptionist and I had a talk, she told me it is all up to me, that the Doctor can only do so much that it is my choice .She told me the people that make it are the ones that worked for it and truly want it.
My husband told me the rate I am going I will climb to 200 soon. I fight with myself every day for control. So many of you put so much into your fight and lazy me just nods my head saying yes I am going to fight this also .
Winter is now passed, the birds are singing,the once brown grass is showing blades of green,the shoots of flowers are starting to push though the good earth, and the buds are forming on the barren trees. I to want to be like the forth coming Spring with newness!!

I had 4 days off Friday until today I sat day Thursday night & made a list of all what I wanted to try my best at on getting done in 4 days . The list grew to 25 I finished all but 4, & those 4 will be finished by weeks end.
I also started walking on Sat. since the last I truly walked was last Fall. My husband walked with me i made one mile, with chest pains & pain down my thigh,but I did it. Then Sunday after church I went on a 3 mile walk, not all at once I broke it up in intervals of several hours.Then today I went on another 3 mile walk in intervals. I feel so good, plus I drank my 2 liters of water. So I made my 4 days off count into a big accomplishment the chores would have been done ,but I never made a list like I did , it was like a game to see what I could really do. I even set the timer in some of them & in each case I finished before the timer blasted off!!!
So I am going to start being a list maker as it has worked for me.
The air was crisp & blustery as the wind whipped about,the sun was shining so bright ,the birds were singing away in there melody . I listened to a radio Christian station as I was walking,then on the other walks I listened for the first time a book on tape.so it made the walk more fun.
Will be a challenge for the rest of the week as I go back to work & standing on my feet all day can be trying. I will give it a go as I do not know about 3 miles as the daylight savings time has not arrived as of yet.
I feel as of this minute I have so much confidence in doing my challenges, I am a terrible carb eater after dinner as I am eating now 3 different kInds of frozen fruit as it takes longer to eat & finishing up my water.
Have a lovely week every one!!!
