Motivation part 2.

Tuesday, August 02, 2011

Ok, so I think I found a goal that will motivate me a little more. I booked a trip for Grand Bahama with my husband for November. We never got to go on an official honeymoon. I can't wait, But I want to look my best, and therefore I went and bought a swimsuit I want to wear. and I have now hung it up where my wedding dress was. I know how to be healthy, and I like doing it, but my problem is I like eating bad too. I t outweighs the want to be healthy and lose the rest of my weight. So hopefully the idea of going somewhere tropic will give me a new spark of motivation!

Yesterday I saw my trainer and today I plan on trying to jump rope again. I think I am finally getting the hang of it.. And it burns way more calories than the treadmill.... Tomorrow I am taking the girls too the pool,,maybe,, its supposed to be the hottest day of the year! anyway while they are at the pool, I will be swimming my butt off, So I actually have the latter part of the week planned out. Lets hope it goes well!!!

I will keep it short. I need motivation. I need a goal , a reason. I am hving this problem. I am good for a few days, or a do what I need to be doing for a few days, and then something sparks a week of eating bad or going out for empty calories.

I need motivation, any suggestions?

    I was having the same issue a few months ago. I signed up for a 28 Day Bootcamp Challenge and a 5% Challenge here. I have also rounded up a couple of friends to do a 12k this next spring with me. It has helped to keep me focused and working towards a goal.

The 28 day bootcamp challenges are set for you to start whenever you want, so that might be a good one for now. The 5% Summer challenge started three weeks ago, and runs another 5 weeks. Will be another challenge starting within a few weeks of that.

You might want to look into a charity run/walk in your area to give you something to keep working towards. I hope you find something to keep you in the game. You have already done so much work, and made such healthy strides. You are worth the effort!

So proud!

Thursday, July 14, 2011

Today my little took her first full pee in the potty, not a tinkle,, ,yea!!!! As for me I am doing very well, My trainer has been out of town, and i don't quite have the courage to go to the MMA gym by myself. Why? Well its small, so if no one is there they keep it closed, which is usually at the early morning hours i want to go. Two it really is a guys gym,, I think I am like one out of 5 girls there. Finally there are more than your usual amount of gym guys who look like giant mafia thugs ready to pounce on me in the night ( ok so I exaggerate, but you get the idea) Anyway its intimidating..

Anyway I am proud b/c I have been doing really well by myself at home.. The heat has been ridiculous, or I have been all inside. All 3 day I hit the treadmill, and today too,, One day I did an entire spark people video. Another day I did my own little bootcamp work out.. I took my own exercises , and one that I k now my trainer would have me do. Anyway when my trainer gets back,, he will be so proud! Just like me!!

Try try try again

Monday, July 11, 2011

I have had a lack of motivation. I was good for a week or two and then back to the fried food I love. I want to blame a stressful past few weeks, and no time,, but I am goingt o blame myself,, I am losing the progress I have made over the past few months.. So today I stocked up on all of my healhty foods, and got on the treadmill for a nice long run.. I just have to keep trying and it will stick again,,, right?
A good thing this time is after 30 years of exiastence i have discovered that i actually like salad, and it was so easy to eat. I know I have been a picky eater my entire life, but with this change I have started to open the door for more options to add to my diet.

Ok try again tommorrow and just keep going!

    You just had a major life change well several so don't beat yourself up. Keep doing what you're doing and you'll be back into your rhythm soon. Your wedding seemed to motivate you alot maybe you do great when you set goals. Maybe setting another goal to work towards will motivate you? Just a thought. Keep sparking!

Yesterday was awesome. I made it a point to get a good work out in and keep the calories low , so that i could go to a dinner party with my friends last night. Totally worth it. For dessert I had a piece of one of those mixed cheese cakes from publix,, and so good!!! but 350 calories,, wow Really? I m not saying that is bad ,, that is really good, for cheese cake,, I know for a fact that where I work the cheesecake is like 750 calories, that is almost the entire day.. And if you actually go to the cheesecake factory the desserts are truly a whole days worth of calories... Why is it that the things i love the most have to be so calorie and fat laden... Why cant a good piece of KfC or a piece of cheesecake require a special occasion and a treadmill workout right after??? Just getting the opinion out there.

Anyway dinner was needed and I had a great time,, it is nice to eat and drink with friends and not worry about the calorie intake of what you are putting in your mouth...

Today I am going to the park with my trainer, we are doing a hike,, and I couldnt be more excited,,, And then when we get bag i get to punch the bag for as long as I want.. I really want my own bag!!! Ok people, I am now taking donations for the heavy bag fund for Kelly's garage!!:)

    emoticon Let me know how that works out for ya :-) The fund I mean.

As for the cheesecake, I think we have to allow those indulges now and again or we end of feeling deprived and resentful. I do look at my calories by the day, but I also look at the week as a whole. As long as I have a calorie deficit of 3500 for the week, I call it a successful week. Some weeks that means I need a 5th day of Curves versus my normal 4, or an extra 3 miles on the elliptical. The additional exercise is worth it to me for the wine with dinner or the occasional cheesecake. It's life, I want to enjoy it!
