So my doctor finally cleared me to exercise but I am not sure I want to. My foot surgery gave me the perfect out. I can't exercise cause of my foot than that bleed over to why diet because I can't exercise because of my foot. Exercises table of one please!!! But now all that is gone. My dog is looking a lot chunky and is now looking at the door and back at me. I guess that is his way of telling me he wants to start walking again. It really does not help that Jacksonville is all smoky outside and smells like a big BBQ pit. I know I know Excuses Excuses. That is why I have gained ALL and I do mean ALL my weight back and it brought a couple of friends with it. I probably should have left that last piece of cake and ice cream alone and no I did not track that. emoticon Now the one positive thing is that I do walk around my building on my 15 min break almost everyday emoticon. Now if I could just get to the gym that I pay for, use the elliptical and treadmill in my house and take my poor dog for a walk i think i will get back in the swing of things.

Oh yeah and i really need to start tracking my food!! Yikes!!!!!

On Monday, I went to the cardiologist and he informed that everything is great but I need to lose weight, eat better and exercise more. I mean I know that I have fallen off my plan ( having foot surgery did not help). So once I can start working out again, I am going to give it all I have. I have a Elliptical, Treadmill, heavyweight punching bag and numerous work out tapes. My problem is Motivation. I looked at myself in the mirror this morning and did not recognize my own body. It used to be tight now it is flabby. I just stood there and cried. I really can't stay this way. I am disgusted by my own reflection. I am disgusted by my own body. How did I get here at 33 years old.

    I'm glad that you're ok! Surgery can put you back, but how about a pilates DVD (no weight on your foot, but a good workout)? I have one that I use often and it gives me really good streches and toning. Just take it one day at at time! emoticon

Hair Freedom

Monday, February 21, 2011

Saturday I cut off all my hair. Well not all of it. I have about two inch left but since my hair has really really tight curls it looks like a teeny tiny afo. I have decided to make a fresh start. Little to no chemicals in my hair and hopefully less and less in my food. I have had such a rought time of it lately. financially, spirtually and physically. After i cut my hair, I felt very depressed. The decision to cut it was because i could no longer afford to keep getting it done. I cried and cried. I then started emotionally eating. I mean eating everything in sight. I had a whole Red Baron supreme pizza, some grape soda and chocolate chip cookies (notice the s on the end, that is not a mistake). I really felt so beat down I woke up on Sunday and looked in the mirror and for a minute I did not know who I was. As I kept looking, I decided that I need to get to know myself outside of the straight hair and other people opinions. I have been playing at losing weight. I have not exercised at all in I don't know how long. I mean a walk her and there a exercise regiment does not make. Als, when i was looking the mirror besides the hair, i did not recognize my body. It has bumps and lumps all over it. What in the world happened to me. I know I have been EATING the wrong things or way to much of the right thing. No excersise and Lots of stress. I have decided that I am going to dedicate the rest of this year to growing out my hair naturally and to becoming healthy. My son has picked up on my bad eating habits and that has to stop. Threw away most of the junk food and will be throwing away the rest. We have no will power in my home. If it is there we want to eat it.

I feel much better sharing and thanks for reading!! Feel free to share any comments or advice emoticon

Friday 2/4/11

Today is shaping up to be a odd day. I woke up late this morning so could not make my protein shake for breakfast. I usually have oatmeal packets in my desk. Low and behold, no packets at my desk. The only thing I had was ginger snaps. 12 ginger snaps later, I am now full. Not the best breakfast but at least I ate something.

My job is doing a superbowl lunch for us today so I am going to have a fun time figuring out what to eat. I think the words for lunch is portion control.

Even after all of that, I still feel wonderful today! I feel like I have lost some weight but have not weighted myself yet ( scared that when I do there will be no weight loss). I have been making better decisions about what I am eating. I only worked out 2 days this week emoticon Next week will be better. I am learning to not dwell on past failures but to look to the future for successes!!!



Wonderful Day

Tuesday, January 25, 2011

I woke up this morning feeling like this is going to be a great day. I got a good night's sleep and actually got up on time today. I would like to say that this happened on its own but that would be a lie. This happened because on Monday I made a conscious effort to participate in living a healthy life. I made some great food choices ( well great for me, no junk food!!!) I spent last night with quality time with my son and dog. We went for a walk with our dog and just talked about nothing really but it was nice just being able to just focus on him with no real distractions. We have decided on our walk that we are going to have a family meeting every Friday where we can talk about the upcoming weeks events, meal planning, go over chores expectaions and to have a open forum to talk about any problems or concerns either of us have. I got all this from a 20 minute walk just listening to my eight year old. I was able to do something last night that I have not done in a long time. To go to sleep in peace. Man, that was the best blessing of all. emoticon

    I like the idea of having family "meetings". It's a way great to keep up with what is on everyone's mind. Kudos!
