What does corn & waterfalls have to do with my body????

Sunday, September 16, 2012

I had taken pictures of myself front & sideways I had all intentions of posting them. Until my husband down loaded them . Oh my gosh I gave out a scream & had him delete them faster than a comet streaking through the night sky. My sides & back were cascading with rolls of fat like the waterfalls at Niagara Falls in Canada they just kept rolling & rolling. I then took a large mirror & examined my sides & back side I actually could not believe that was my body how I let myself go over food , laziness , & excuse after excuse. I then said I am going to have that fat roll off me like butter off a hot ear of corn. I am on my way to the melting away of unwanted fat. I joined a gym once again, this time it is going to be different. I am taking it slow to build myself up rather than end up burned out.

    Go Judy! Someone sneaked a picture of me from behind in January 2011, and I was appalled and disgusted by the fat rolls I could see through my suit jacket! That was my a-ha moment. Hoping those pictures hubby took are yours, and wishing you much success on your journey toward a healthier and lighter you.

    Come on girlfriend...you can do this! I know you can! One day at a time.
Whatever you do, do not give up. Continue on. Lots of good veggies and fruits!
Get to that gym and you know you will feel so much better.
Have a terrific Sunday. I am with you on this!

    It won't come off as fast as butter off an ear of corn, but it WILL come off. You might want to save those pics in secret. When you hit your goal you will LOVE the before and after comparisons!

    I hope you do keep your pictures of before! I got rid of all of mine and now I wish I hadn't! I can't go back and get them all I can do is move forward. But it would have been nice to have them to see how far I have come!

I went & I am so excited

Friday, September 14, 2012

I was excited thinking all day of going to the gym for the first time since last year. On the way home I had a tug in my mind starting to persuade me to just stay home. I continued to put my gym clothes on telling myself what do you want to remain like I am for the rest of my life or make a difference in my health & appearance. I shoved my socks on & jammed my shoes on, & out the door I went. I went & worked out, now I feel so good inside. Thanks everyone for encouraging me!!!!

So mch excitement within me

Thursday, September 13, 2012

Oh my gosh what a day !!! I joined a gym tonight walking distance from my home just a few blocks. The gym just opened a few years ago. They have a special going on this month first month is free then each month it is $19.00 other wise after the special it is $ 40.0 a month. Plus I have NO sign on fee plus I am not locked into this. Then I went to a chiropractor she is awesome did a lot with my back, I feel great, she also spent an hour & a half with me. I may have to get a tens unit. I love the idea the gym is right by me no car driving ,plus it opens at 4:30 am I am ready for this I just need to remember to not jump into this gym & go nuts then give up because I tried to do too much all at once. I joined gyms before & quit I feel a drive within me more than ever in my life!!!

    Great news! I am so happy for you that you found a gym so close to home and so cheap too. It sounds very wise to decide not to overdo it though, you don't want to hurt your back... I wish I could find a gym so cheap and close to home, I would join for sure! You made a great decision! Go Judy!

    Well done for joining the gym! It sounds ideal, being so close to home. That makes it far easier to fit it into your day regularly. As you say, take it easy to start with - it's the keeping going that will make the difference. I've done the same - getting super-enthusiastic and then burning out fairly quickly. Now I do little and often and it works much better.

    OK, Step one: Join a gym
Step two -- and this always seems to be the hardest part -- GO TO THE GYM

It is so cool that you can walk to it. When I first joined the YMCA, it wasn't close enough to walk. Then after a few short weeks, it was in walking distance.

It didn't move.
I didn't move.

Walking distances just got shorter.

My very first ever

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

I had won a deep tissue massage . I went tonight after work it was the most relaxing ever. I have scoliosis bad & so much pain in my back most of the time. The massage was really deep & she was very good. Yes it hurt some but right now I feel like I am a cob of corn with butter melting off it!!! My surgeon wants to put rods in my back. I will not do that I am not afraid of the surgery ,but I am afraid of staph infection or MERSA. I see too much by working in the pharmacy besides he said it is not a guarantee it would help me.
I should really sleep sound tonight.

  Massages are the best for what ails you. I would consider a holistic doctor and try everything I could before going under a knife that may not help you at all. Some will elect to suffer through the pain and I'm sure, you already know about that. There are different kinds of massages and you may want to check your medical plan to see if it offers discounts and/or specials are available to you. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I am glad that you loved the Massage and got a really good Massuese to do it for you.In India we have these women coming home on a regular basis to massage and bathe the new mothers--specially just after the birth of the baby.Ayurved recommends this for both--the baby and the new mother!!!These women massage both,then bathe both---helps the Baby's bones to become straight and strong----- and for the mother eases the pain and discomfort of child birth.
Hope this helps to reduce your pain---and like you I'm very wary of Surgery too--absolutely the last resort!!Take Care My Friend and God Bless!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

I took myself out on a date!!!!

Monday, September 03, 2012

I have not done anything for myself for sometime. I always have someone with me.I worry about their needs & likes. I just told my husband I was going. I got dressed up which most times I just fly out the door with anything on to run quick errands. I even put makeup on. I rolled the car windows down & turned up the air conditioner. I love the feel of the cold air on my face & a breeze blowing in the window. I put my favorite CD on ( CHI ) a relaxation/ meditation tape. the instruments are awesome. The first place I went to was a knew hairdresser about a month ago I had a perm go really bad. My hair was fried & it looked like I put my finger in a light socket !!! Nancy gave me a wonderful style & cut, she even gave me a small bottle of leave in conditioner to see how I like that. I then went to my favorite spa & bought my under eye concealer the name is Youngblood the only thing that really covers the raccoon inherited black circles under my eyes. I also picked up a pretty shade of blush which I was running out of. from there I went to Bon Ton & bought a black pair & a navy pair of Clark shoes on sale.I then went to a beautiful gift shop to order lamp shades. The gift shop is a church built in the early 1800's the stain glass windows are so beautiful & with the midday sun shining through the colored glass it was so beautiful. On the way home I stopped off at the roadside market & bought some red & green lettuce. Went home & made a nice dinner for my husband & I. This is an ordinary day for some, but to me it was qreat & relaxing I felt refreshed when I arrived home. I usually blast the heat up on the stove to hurry & get the dinner cooked this time I did it slow.This all may seem mundane to others, but to me I had a few hours of just being on my own, & gliding along.

    You deserve the alone time, and if you can't get it, make it! I love how you were just like, I'm gone. I wish I could do that but I have a nosy Aunt who lives with me - she's 65 - and she gets upset when I don't tell her everything. And a lot of times I just stay in my room when I don't want to be bothered by her. The door is open, but I work better in my room.

Thanks for posting on my blog today about the stability ball. It sure looks easy when Coach Nicole does it, but I have a cast on my left leg and didn't even think to put shoes on when I first started, so my feet slid across the carpet and I sat there thinking "How am I supposed to get a shoe on this cast?". I just took the sock off and let the rough texture work with the carpet, and it worked... somewhat.
