80 days to go

Thursday, October 13, 2011

I need to come here daily because just seeing 4 days have passed since I have blogged gives me another since of urgency! I have made great choices with exercise this week with and have worked out every day. Food has been better, today was tough because I can't seem to feel satified and feel hungry frequently. I am down 3 pounds but sure that was mostly water weight I had obtained due to hormonal fluctuations. I have a retreat to attend this weekend so hopefully that will be encouraging and refuel my spirit.

    Remember retreats are great for the soul but not always great for the body - They like butter at those things (In my experience) pay close attention to what you eat and have a wonderful time!

84 days to go

Sunday, October 09, 2011

I made myself a promise this year to lose 50 pounds and I have had multiple problems... I was doing excellent in my goals until my mother in law past away in April and I seem to have been lost for a variety of reasons since then. It has just occured to me that it is nearing the end of the year and I am in the process of breaking my promise to myself. In April I weighed about 12 pounds less than I do today and was well on the way to success. I could just give up but that is not in me. I prayed about it this morning and will continue on. My goal is more than 50 pounds. It is to be healthy enough to have choices and do what I want to do. It is to acknowledge that while I love the food that is bad for me and my weight serves as certain psychological protection for me it is more important for me to have options and choices and be healthy! I have 84 days to the end of the year and my goal is to now to be able to say I am proud of myself for doing everything I could do everyone of the 84 days until 12/31 to make myself healthy!

Back on the wagon

Monday, April 25, 2011

Well I have been home for 4 days and gave myself that long to get myself bvack on track and organize and get my head in the right place. I am now ready to continue my journey this year. I am officially up 2 pounds but that does not depress me, I know this is not a sprint and it is about taking control of my body and owning my decisions. I will walk and get to the gym today and track my food. My short term goal is to be back down the 2 pounds by next week, then I will aim for 5 more pounds within the next month. I know I will not make the short term goals I have posted on my page but I will make them eventually! The most important thing is to make healthy choices, eat clean, exercise and be the healthy person that can enjoy life!

Day ?/100 - finally back home

Thursday, April 21, 2011

Well the last 3 weeks have been a complete blur and not a healthy one! We went to FL for our planned vacation and were headed home on 4/8. Made it all the way to Gainesville and got a call that my mother in law had been found unresponsive. We headed back to Sarasota. When we arrived at the hospital we were told she had a severe stroke and death was imminent. She made it almost a week at the hospital before being transferred to a Hospice House. She passed away Saturday night. Since we live out of town we had to spend all day SUnday, Monday and most of Tuesday not only making arrangements but going through her apartment and figuring out what we needed to keep, go through again and donate. I know we had been there a while and should have gotten a jump on it but none of us could bear the thought of doing this while she was still alive. Needless to say I am completely off track and need to regroup!

    My thoughts are with you and your family, I lost my father last September and I understand how devastating it is. You are not alone, you have people who care. Take care of yourself.

    Hugs and prayers. We lost my fil last October. When he moved in 2008 they said he had two days and he was with us almost two years. We were blessed.

Day 38/100 - laugh or cry?

Thursday, March 31, 2011

I am starting to think no matter how I try and strategize my body is going to do what it is going to do! I increased my calories and carbs a bit yesterday but did not have positive results at all and felt like crap! Apparently my body cann't handle carbs in the normal range for most people. Talk about retaining fluid - my rings haven't been tight for weeks but they are this morning. I have decided to just do as much physical activity as possible and eat the way my body feels healthiest and try not to worry so much over the scale - it will eventually move!

    You may have just helped me out! I've been cutting back on my sodium and doing well with that....but I'm still swelling up like a balloon! My rings are tight, my lower legs are swollen, and I am wearing sneakers all day to keep my feet from swelling up like balloons also. And the only thing is...I've been going to the high-end of my carb range on the nutrition tracker or.....over. So I really wonder I swelling from the carbs too?? I never really thought about it until I read your blog, but it's very possible. Hang in there! Fluid is icky, but it's not forever. :) Hugs!
