Back on track

Saturday, December 04, 2010

so nice to say that I am back at it again. I have been watching and logging what I eat and have been losing. I am back to 143 again! Not time in the day to track by meals, but I do track by the day and keep it healthy. I watch my vitamins, minerals, fiber, etc. I can fit into most of my clothes and that makes a difference for sure. I don't have much time for workouts, unfortunately, but do walk 20 minutes every day.

    I'm so glad to see that you came back! I kept checking over the years, but I've seen so many others leave and never return.

Well done on getting back on track! emoticon

Here I go again!

Friday, December 28, 2007

Ok, it is a few days past Christmas, and I have been what I would in the past, called "thin." Now it feels so fat. I feel the rolls and I hate it. I need to finally make my goal. I am changing it up. I will tell my DH as soon as he's out of the tub! I shun processed sugar. I will eat fruits, veggies, and whole grains. I will eat very little fat, and make it only in the lean meats. I will make working out a priority. THat means no more letting others choose what I'm doing. I will put the bod first before other people's entertainment or comfy-level. If we go to Disney World, Harley-riding, fishing, etc, it will be after I work out and shower, not before, because I know that never works for me. I will also start marching and jogging in place while I watch what precious little TV I watch. I used to do that and it helped. One more thing: I will drop my coffee consumption down to 1 pot per day. That's fewer sweetner packets and cups of milk to down. I will replace it with WATER!
Wow; I might be intimidated by the new me...


I will succeed!

Today I am going for the gold. I have been hovering around 140-145 for months. I have used all the excuses possible, and have filled my life so full that there is no time to exercise or sleep right. My husband is accommodating and supportive so I have no real good reason, just excuses.
For my sake (I turn 40 in about 2 weeks and don't want this next decade to be as large as the last), and his, I will stop being so apathetic with my own health. I recongnize the fact that I have lost and kept off about 80 pounds (yikes!), and that is a huge accomplishment, but I want to go all the way, and I know I can.

From now on I will:
Eat only when hungry,
Eat only at mealtimes,
Go to bed by 10:00,
Wake up before my grandson to have time to work out,
Work out to Tae Bo every morning,
Take 30 minutes every day to run,
Stop hiding and scarfing non-nutritious food products,
Eat more raw veggies,
Track my weight openly- no more hiding it,
Create and use a reward system.

    Good luck with meeting those goals. You've already VASTLY improved from the last deacde, so you'll be fine. Besides, you're already looking great- very inspiring.

who is standing in my way?

Tuesday, July 10, 2007

"Who is standing in your way?

Imagine someone regularly tying small weights around your ankles as you try to climb a mountain. Doesn't sound fair, does it? But that's exactly what you can do to yourself, a little bit at a time, if you don't watch out. When you think of who and what is standing in the way of your dreams, it's easy to forget your own responsibility. Even the best of us can be guilty of unknowingly hurting our own progress. Procrastination, lateness, being disorganized, pessimism, not being honest with yourself, severe self-criticism, downplaying achievements, focusing only on weaknesses while ignoring strengths, keeping goals a secret, demanding perfection, giving up after a small setback--these are all ways you can make it tough to be (and do) your best. Smart systems, the right attitude, and a promise to keep going no matter what will make a world of difference."

I am determined not to stand in my own way when it comes to my weight. Why on earth should I be fat and miserable? There is no good reason, so I have to remind myself every time I go into the kitchen. I can eat what I feel like all the time, and I can be miserable, or I can eat well and be happy with my body. I choose to be able to roll over in my sleep and feel good!

People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing--that's why we recommend it daily.

- Zig Ziglar, motivational speaker
"Makes sense doesn't it? The secret to staying consistent with your goals is to stay motivated. That means finding ways to fire yourself up on a daily basis. Being inspired at a seminar, by reading a book, or while talking to a dynamic speaker is easy. But what happens when you're on your own? To follow through on that burst of motivation and reach the finish line, you need regular booster shots. Give yourself those little positive reminders that you have an important job to do and a good reason for doing it. What's pushing you? Surround yourself with visual, verbal, and physical "pep talks" that trigger that motive. It doesn't take long for dust to gather on your momentum, making your goals turn stale. A daily dose of motivation kicks off the dust before it can settle and gives you a fresh, clean start."

This is what teaching is about. We show the kids that THEY are the ones doing it. They learn that they can, and we are there to show them how to do it and how to make it enjoyable and why they might need to.
