I have recommitted

Saturday, November 12, 2011

I have been doing bad lately. A lot of turmoil within myself due to sibling family matters. I have failed myself in the last few weeks. I have made another commitment to myself once again a few moments ago.. I did not let it go for months. I got a hold of my thoughts before I ran rampant. Depression about my family is so difficult for me to handle. Sometimes I feel like I am about to have panic attacks due to my stress level. My slacks are feeling a tad tight, so I know I have gained a few pounds.

    When I am especially stressed by family matters, I have been known to take walks to "run down" that stress - my own version of power walks, I guess. I walk long enough that it decreases the stress level, I guess....

Just an idea...

    I'm sorry to hear things are not going well with you. I know what it's like to be clinically depressed and have had hyperventilating panic attacks. I did not want to use antidepressants but having someone I could trust who would let me "vent" and my faith in God got me through it. I sincerely hope your family situation improves and that you can find a way to stay on track.

Listen to your inner voice & camping among the autumn leaves

Saturday, October 22, 2011

I finished this weekend with a content heart about working out. Yesterday I pushed myself further by doing extra sets & reps on the machines. I was ready . I had been away from it for awhile, then I did something I never did before I walked the tread mill right after I felt real good about myself. Then I came home had grilled salmon steamed parsnips & steamed carrots ( all home grown ) & a spinach salad. Before I went to the gym my mind wondered what was for supper I thought I would get something quick stop off & get a big fat hoagie sandwich ,& a bag of honey bar b que chips. When I left the gym I thought here is the time to make that better choice, why do I want to ruin what I just did only because I was feeling lazy about cooking. I sure am happy I listened to that inner voice. I had to smile to myself as I was eating & say good choices Judy!!!!! We are going camping shortly at a beautiful state park, the autumn leaves are showing there bright petticoats. It is to get down to 32 degrees tonight so it will be cozy around the campfire. I have books packed to read, camera ready to go & warm clothing. I will eat healthy taking good choices, no cookies to dip in milk as I am devouring a good read in my book. Instead fresh apples from the orchard.Everyone have a good & blessed weekend!!!!!

    Way to go Judy on making such good choices!

I love camping...haven't been in a few years as my hubby is not crazy about it. He had to sleep in a tent during Desert Storm so he swore of camping, lol! We did compromise though and bought a timeshare and it has many locations in the mountains and by lakes....therefore I get my "nature on!"

Have a fantastic time!

A passing , a feeling, a boost

Thursday, October 20, 2011

My 48 year old cousin passed away in his sleep. He had open heart surgery 4 years ago ,his heart was not doing good so they put him on a heart monitor about 4 days before he passed away. He died in his sleep. The one thing that brings us peace he was a Christian.
I treated my self last night .I had my hair put back to it;s natural color brunette. I had it blond which I thought was too heavily done for me. At first when I looked in the mirror when I came home was shocking to see all the dark hair enveloping my face, like it though makes my eyes stand out more. The weather is rainy & the skies are heavy with gray. However; I love rainy dark days they are so mysterious to me so cozy, they give me warmth inside my soul. Sunny days are nice also,but I love the feeling I have on these rainy gray days.

    So sorry about your cousin. I recently went back to brunnette after spending my summer blonde too. I have always thought of myself as "blonde" I was born that way, but I'm gradually growing to accept that I'm not blonde and haven't been for more than 20 years. I'm stubborn.

    Sorry to hear about your cousin but what you wrote is so true..he believed and now he is alive eternally with Jesus Christ. As the apostle Paul said "Oh death where is your sting?" He also said to die is to gain. I am glad to hear you are being comforted by the fact he is in heaven.

That is great you like your new hair color...a change is nice. I have natural brown hair and have blonde highlights that I really like as they help cover the gray that is coming in :)

Enjoy the rain and stay warm and dry!

Feeling Good

Thursday, October 13, 2011

I am in day 4 of going straight to the gym after work,feels good. My friend & I went out to dinner tonight,& I ate sensible, I had 2 whole wheat crackers before going out to dinner & water which helped also. I have a spring in my step , I wonder what I will have a month from now. My goal is a bounce, a weight loss,but more important to finally feel good about myself.I am going to the gym every day ,just like I go to work every day, I have to work to live, & I have to work out to live healthy!!!!!!!!!!!!

I met my Monday goals YippySkippy!!!!!!!!

Monday, October 10, 2011

I had goals to meet today & I met them all. I was getting anxious because I had to work until 7 Pm & I was real tired. I ate within my goals, I went to the gym only went 1 mile on the bike,but I had to take it easy had not gone for awhile, & need to watch what I do with my back & knee. I drank my 4 glasses of water , ( that is a start for me I do not drink much water ) I did my Mom's paper work. I felt good after I came home knowing I had accomplished what I set out to do This is going to be a day by day goal challenge I have to start somewhere,& I cannot jump into this with goals I know I will not meet I always make too big of a list & & when I do not do all them I feel like a failure. & give up.So I will set mini ones & work myself up to more each time. Tomorrow is another knew day to set another set of goals

    Mini goals are excellent!! In fact, sometimes they are more beneficial because people don't seem to be so overwhelmed with mini goals. Excellent job meeting them!
