Motivate me!

Saturday, February 13, 2010

I need some motivation. I have my eating down okay now. I haven't cheated in awhile now. I'm drinking my water again. My problem is that my bike sits in the corner, unused. I want to find the motivation to get back on it and start exercising again but just can't seem to do it.

I look at my little girl and I realize I've lost her weight in pounds. That amazes me, bt still doesn't motivate me enough to get me back on that darn bike.

Any ideas?

    Thank you everyone. You gave some great advice. I was pushing myself to do the full 30 minutes, maybe I'll start out slow and not set my expectations so high. Never know, I might get on it and keep going!

Great job on the food and water

    Do you like music? Have a radio or CD player in that room? How about an Ipod and some earphones? Or maybe a TV in your room where you could watch a movie or a favorite TV show?

    "Any ideas? "

* Are there any other exercises that you really enjoy? Or that you could mix it up with the bike?

* When I started working out last fall, I held myself to a 5-10 minute bike ride. That was it. I've slowly upped it, but it was that very small amount of time that made my body want more of it. Start small and work up.

Hope that helps

Focusing on me...

Monday, February 08, 2010

things aren't really great in my life right now. I could go into detail, but quite honestly I just don't have the time or energy right now.

I've decided to take charge of the only thing I feel I have control of and that's me. I'm putting all my efforts into making sure I stay on plan and drink my water. I will get back into exercising soon.

For medical reasons, I can't really exercise as much anymore. I swell up and hurt so much. I have to wait for the Dr's okay. I'll explain in a post later on.

Right now hubby is waiting to watch some TV with me... :)

    We've all seen the Biggest Loser contestants who are on exercise restrictions but watch their diets and water and still lose weight. Be aware of what you do have control over...that's the key! Pay close attention to those details! You can do it!!!

I think I got it!

Monday, February 01, 2010

My motivation that is....

It seems to be coming back. Woohoo. And the gain I thought I had this week must have water weight because it was gone this morning emoticon which is probably the reason for my new-found motivation...lol. But you know what? Whatever it takes, right? So, I haven't lost the 2 pounds I set for my goal, heck I didn't even lose a pound, but I didn't gain either and that IS an accomplishment. I have been through a lot the past few weeks and I could have gone completely off-track but I didn't and for that - I'm proud. GO ME!! emoticon

Ugh!!!

Friday, January 29, 2010

What is wrong with me? I want so bad to do this, but just can't seem to get back on track. I am just so down on myself. I start out each day planning on staying on track and then something de-rails me. I did good on Thursday. I didn't eat at all Friday morning and then Friday evening was Danielle's birthday party and what did they have? Lasagna! And how low-carb is that? Exactly...I guess it's not terrible considering I didn't eat all day, but I should not have eaten it. It's not that I don't want to do it anymore and I want to eat junk, I just really don't want to eat at all. And then when I'm faced with something I shouldn't have, I don't have the resolve I should have to avoid it. I did so good for so long and then I have crap going on and screw up all up. emoticon

    Try looking at the big picture, not the small moment. So you messed up, grab the eraser and forget about it. And try to remember that skipping meals can lead you to do things jut like what happened. Try putting some postive post it notes on your bathroom mirror so every time you look in it you are reminded of why you are working so hard.

    You can do this! Just take steps each day, and don't look at it as an all or nothing thing! For instance, I binged on ice cream hardcore last night instead of measuring (I've been making myself measure), but I know that I can get back on track and do something good today to counteract that.
