A NewGoal To Set and Accomplish!

Monday, July 30, 2012

I am lazy as hell, and I know it. I love nothing more than sleeping for hours on end. I do have an excuse, however, as weak as it may sound.

I am ADHD and Bipolar, great combination! I have a mind that is constantly racing. It doesn't matter what my mind is on, it is on go and that is all that matters. When I am asleep, I don't think. I am in darkness. It is a rest for my body and mind.

Still, I am sick of sleeping my life away, and that is what I am doing. It is also a serious concern for my wife. I am going to make a plan to stop wasting my time in bed and spend my time awake and active. It doesn't matter what I am doing. I just want to be up and using my time wisely,

This will not be easy. I have been a sleeper since I was a teenager. Nothing I love more than sleeping in late in the morning. But, I am wasting half a day, and then don't sleep well that night. It is a cycle I have to be able to break.

This is harder than watching what I eat and working out. I have to work on this every day, and I pray that I can keep to it!


Monday, Monday.Can't Trust That Day

Monday, July 23, 2012

Okay, so to be fair, I was off work today, so I really cannot complain about it being a Monday. Although, being a fan of the Mamas and Papas, I DO like that song!

No, I didn't have to go to work today, but that does not mean I did not stay active. I picked up the apartment, did some laundry, got my workout in, and even went to the library to check out a book that was suggested to me.

This may not seem like a big deal to most. Most people are probably reading this and thinking; "So what?" I understand. But, to clarify, I am a lazy person. I normally sleep all day when I don't have to work. I have been trying for the past week to get away from sleeping all the time. It is working too!

I feel like days are not being wasted. I feel that I don't have to rush to get things accomplished. I feel better about myself, for forcing myself to get out of bed in the morning. I swear, I could sleep for twenty hours at a time, given the chance. But, that would be a waste! I don't want to waste my life away sleeping. There is too much living to do!

Now, I may stay up late tonight. I am a huge fan of wrestling (Yes, I know it is fake), and tonight marks the 1,000th episode of RAW. The show is three hours long. I do not want to miss this. Yes, I am recording it, but I kind of want to watch it live. I am funny that way! So, although I will be up later than usual (If I don't fall to sleep) I still plan on waking up at a decent hour and getting my workout in before I have to be to work.

I have burned over half of my weekly calories in just the past two days. I will continue to burn, and hopefully go over my goal! I am expecting positive results on the scale this Friday. We shall see.

Good luck to everyone out there. Remember we are here to support one another and to push one another. I am here for you, if you will be here for me!

Good for you and the calories burned. Day by day for the rest of our lives, we are getting better, stronger and have waaaaaay more energy!
Keep it up!

Busy Days

Tuesday, July 17, 2012

I have been forcing myself, this week, to get up early, even when I don't have to, and stay active the entire day. This is not an easy thing for me. But, so far everything is going great and I feel better than ever.

I have stayed up way too late for the past several months. I go on Facebook, and will stay on it until midnight. Of course, then I want to sleep the whole next day! I have wasted entire days off by sleeping. It isn't right! I want to lead a fully active life, and the only way I can do that is to make sure I go to bed at a decent hour and get up before nine. That gives me a whole day. Even if I don't have to be to work until noon.

This will take away my excuse for those days I do not workout. This will give me time in the morning, before work, to do the things on Facebook that I enjoy. And, best of all, when it IS time to go to sleep, I will be ready, because I wil have had a full day, and be tired.

I know that getting the proper amount of sleep helps with weight loss, and stress, two of the reasons I workout. This is a big lifestyle change for me. I just have to keep pushing myself, especially on those mornings where I just don't want to hear the alarm go off.

That is all for now. I am finishing up my day so I can keep this up. Got to get to bed soon!

    I had the very same problem! only I HAD to get up early and work. To relax in the evening, I would get online, check e.mail, look at Facebook for a while.... my homepage was Yahoo! so I would just read article after article, surf and read, surf and read. I admit I enjoyed it but it just took up way too much time, I stayed up way to late.
Remedy: I changed my homepage to Google, you know, that blank page with just the search and I'm Feeling Lucky! buttons. Have the places I need to check in my bookmarks, like e.mail and yes, Facebook, so some self control needed. :) but not having all the news stories, etc in my face helped me to cut back my internet time. Out of sight, out of mind!

Back To It!

Sunday, July 15, 2012

I have taken the weekend off from working out. I needed the break. My legs were sore, and I was afraid of injury. I think I am ready now to start running and playing tennis.

I am not a fitness junkie by any means. i am a very lazy individual. I hate working. But, I love the feeling I get from working out. I may not be enjoying it while I am doing it, except for tennis, but when I am done, I feel good about myself and proud of what I have been able to accomplish.

Right now, I am running two and a quarter miles, at least five times a week. I want to up the amount of days and eventually the length of the run. I want to be able to run three miles by the end of the year. I currently run a nine minute mile, which I think for a man of 41 is pretty damn good. I want to increase my speed too, but everything comes with time.

My goal for tomorrow is to get up early and get these things done. I also have chores that need doing. It is my one day off until Saturday, and I want to make the most out of it, instead of spending the entire day in bed.

We will see how I do tomorrow and I will keep you posted. Send me some comments on my page and I will comment back. We are here to support one another. I am here for anyone who needs an ear to listen, or eyes to read!!!

I lost Four Pounds

Friday, July 13, 2012

I felt good when I got up this morning. No, I wasn't looking forward to going to work. I felt positive about stepping on the scale. I knew it would show a loss, but I had no idea how much. I feel like, with Sparkpeople, and the support I have found on here, the balance between eating too much and not enough. Tracking and making myself accountable for so many aspects of my life. I could not be happier right now. I was at a loss before I started on this page. Thank you to Sparkpeople and to my wife for introducing me to this site. It has been the greatest thing in my life.

I still have twelve pounds to lose, and I know it is not going to be easy. I also know that it doesn't stop once I reach my goal. This is a lifelong journey I am on, to lose and maintain. Whatever it takes.

I am not obese my any measure. I have a little bit of weight I want to lose. It is more like toning up. My main inspiration is one person; Adam Levine! My wife thinks he is the best thing in the world. I want to look as good as he does! I may never fully acheive that goal, but I can at least lose this gut!

I took off a day from working out. My goal for tomorrow is to get up and go running before work. I need to start doing this more often and that is the next thing I will be working on.

Please keep me posted on how all of you are doing and remember that you have my support!

    Why would you want to emulate Adam Levine? He is rather lean on it. Your wife may think he is hot, but that is probably MORE to do with the fact that he is in the public eye so much with Maroon 5 and has girls swooning over him, but even fat men in his situation have that same attraction to a lot of women.

I really wonder if this journey is more about you as in you have a self image issue or feel inferior to others. Looking at your photo I certainly don't see why you would feel you need to try and emulate - You certainly don't need to fee inferior to him re weight/looks etc. (and yes, I must admit, this 58yr old thinks he is quite nice, too, BUT not because he his rather lean!) Do you have therapy to help you identify your issues? I think that would be more beneficial for you than weight loss! Of course, eating healthy and getting exercise can never be a bad thing, just so long as you keep your eye on what you REALLY need and not a distorted view of what you need (want.)
