    I did the same thing! We had a Thanksgiving brunch and then drove to my daughters (she had to go home due to her work schedule) so I stayed the night with her and we overindulged up there too...GEEZ!

Today I am back in the saddle and going to get the pound I gained off.

Mind/ Body/ Battle

Saturday, November 19, 2011

If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body , never let the body tell the mind what to do. The body is never tired if the mind is not tired.
A quote by George Patton
This is so true when you really think about it. My mind tells my body " oh your too tired to work out today " or when my body feels tired & I allow it to let my mind know we are not working out. The same as eating I ( my mind ) can tell my body oh your too tired to cook healthy it is quicker to grab something at fast food or eat unhealthy instead of having my body go to the kitchen to cook something healthy. The mind & body are always at battle it is time to win the WAR !!!!!

Not 5 pounds!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sunday, November 13, 2011

I posted yesterday I had gained a few pounds back,because my slacks were snug. This morning I weighed myself it was only 1.8 pounds. Gee I guess it went to the front of my stomach !!!!!!!!!!! I went on the scale 3 times to recheck the numbers. With the upset in my life right now that is an uplift when I saw that. It is amazing when we have those little things in life keep us pushing forward. Then when we have others respond to our post it lifts our spirits also .That is a big thing in Sparks cheering one another on when we are down someone is always out there in Spark land rooting for us ,giving advice trying to help one another keep connected. You all are number one to me Thank You!!!!!! emoticon emoticon

    It is awesome that we have SparkFriends to cheer us on.
I am up this week as well, and like you I knew it because of the way my pants fit.
I think part of it is bloating - but I will be watching what I eat this week. I know that I can do this and I beleive that emoticon

    Yepper, I totally agree: I think the little things are more apt to make or break us in so many situations. And isn't it good to know you're doing better than you thought you were?

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!
