Sunday Night

Sunday, April 03, 2011

Here I am. All in all I am feeling pretty good! Workout, LOTS of garden work, ok ok it was ALL weeds! YUCK! But I know it was a great extra workout and the sun felt great. I was away from junk food all weekend eating fresh and loving it. Sushi and Crab Legs on Friday night, Grilled Salmon with Asparagus on Saturday. Today mostly protein, bacon....so good even though I knew it was the best choice. Curled up in the sun most of the day, reading my choice of books "you are what you eat" by Gillian McKeith. For anyone who wonders why you have a crack in your tongue, or how to get help your gas issue or help you sleep or pick me up in the afternoon READ it! Funny, and interesting a little scary because I read it and go wow am I unhealthy!
I have already made my lunch and my son's lunch for tomorrow and my gym bag in the truck....

and did I mention the best part? I got my A/C fixed in the Rodeo! Wohoo! It was a 100 last week already and my A/c went out! UGH! SO, while I was curled in the sun....my truck was being fixed! Yay!

    Our AC went out in our home (we live in a mobile home) and it was the hottest July ever-- we cooked and needless to say once it got fixed I was ready to kiss the repair guy

It's the weekend and I am busy, the AC is broke in my truck and I live in AZ this morning it was 70 on the way in and we are nearing 100 today. Not good driving weather...ick!
Work is tough today....
BUT leaving at noon to go see my son get an award at school which I am totally excited about!
I am really trying to delve into why I can't let go of the weight. I have been bouncing around this weight give or take 2 pounds for about 3 months now. There is something holding me back emotionally. I know how to eat and I know what to eat. I know how to exercise and I have put that in place by returning to Curves. The inches are defintely changing which is causing me to really start to dig in on what and why I am holding onto this weight. It is rough battle internally and I believe that now I have all the tools to do this move forward and be successful.

Happy Friday everyone!

Wednesday Already?

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

I cannot believe it is the middle of the week already! WOW! It is just flying by! I have to something. Although I have been a memberof Spark since 07 I did not use it to this extreme. I used to post my weighs in and it was a place for some friends I met on the Biggest Loser site to stay in touch without paying the price of membership. And now here I am three years later really just now finally settling in look at the wonderful success. Learning and reading and blogging. I love to write, but having it exposed is a whole different world! Feels good to be able to just sit down and start writing to all of you and tell you whatever I want. I can be me.

I am finding I am exercising with no issues and am steadily loses inches with no major weightloss. I think my personal challenge is really looking into what I consume and how much I consume. And most importantly why.

Off I go to exercise.

As part of the challenge I have entered we have to give 5 people who are behind our motivation. Yesterday, I gave the example of the my friend as motivation who is not happy that I am losing and she appears to be gaining what I lose. When she said there is no way your smaller than me! that is because I never have been smaller than her. It was a great feeling and I am turning that comment into inspiration to continue to lose and get even smaller than her!
The second person who motivates me every opportunity I get to see him, is the man I am dating. He has dropped probably fifty pounds through just walking and altering his diet.(ugh if it were only so easy for me!) He looks amazing and makes me want to do better and stay on track!
I could list all the people on Spark and that would easily cover my five but everyone here is truly motivating to see that we all have the common goal of being healthier for whatever the reason, it is a wonderful feeling to not feel alone.
Another motivator is my mirror, so I guess it would be myself. I had not looked in a full length mirror in a very long time and now I am almost daily(it is very very tough for me to do). It is tough to do, but seeing my pants get baggier and stomach not sticking out past my bra that is pure motivation.
the last motivator is smaller than me but larger than life to me. My son. I want to be there to watch him graduate, get married, become a grandma, a great grandma. He is only 9 and the only way to be the best parent I can be is to get healthy.

wow, that is not mentioning the wonderful support group that watches over me here at work. I have food allergies that have recently been diagnosed and have rebelled and turned to junk food and they are my champions by showing me foods that I can choose and helping me understanding the new world I have to accept.

Have a great everyone!

Another year older....

Monday, March 28, 2011

Monday Monday....Today starts a new spark challenge that I am excited about! I need the disipline! I got on the scale which I have avoided it is up not too bad but up. Packed a nice lunch and snack and have gum for that boredom snack attacking! I have until May 28th till Florida and I would love love love to see 20 pounds gone! I think that is really doable, it is only 10 pounds a month and that really is like 2 pounds a week. Breaking it down into such small goals like really makes it seem so possible!
I found myself out with my friend yesterday. She gives me all her clothes....she shops all the time! She found a very pretty red tunic beautiful blouse for work and it was an 18 and she said it wont fit us. Forever we have been on diet and I am always bigger than her. I quietly said it will fit me. I said let me hang onto this. She said it will be too tight. Ok enough I thought. I said here hold my purse and I tried it on right over my too big t shirt that I had on! And I said how does it look? She didn't say anything. I told her that I can wear all her handmedowns just about. She said they were all too small for me, how is that possible? Then she told me my jeans were too tight! I said these? I dont even have to unbutton these! they just go up and down they are so big! She said well the pockets in back are sticking out....I said huh? that is because I just took them out of the dryer! She said you dry your jeans? At last.... I think she got it. I am getting smaller and she is getting bigger. Sad for her but it is true. BUT what a great feeling for me! I bought the tunic thing on today with yoga pants and it looks great!
My friend is my first inspiration to contiue on my journey. I see her getting bigger and having health issues. I do not want any issues, I want the ones I have to go away as well! I want her to see that I am losing and becoming thinner and moving out of the plus size stores!
