OK - my goal this week is to get back on this plan

Monday, April 20, 2009

I have been a slacker...don't know why for 5 months I just have not been able to get my mindset back on Sparkpeople...so I brought food for breakfasts and lunches to work today for the week...brought a beautiful apple for a snack...I'm planning on eating a lighter dinner with a snack later as well.

I'm feeling like, if I can get organized, plan ahead, and bring food to work I can get back on top of this.

I know I've gained about 23 pounds...so my goal is to get that off during the next 6 weeks...and then continue moving in the right direction again.

  


My get up and go...went

I am drawing a line in the sand today, and stepping over it as I leave the past and move forward...my motivation has been absolutely shot, and I want it back. My son is out of town this week so there are no distractions and barriers in my way - otherthan my own self defeating behaviors - which I'm am focusing on changing this week to get myself back on track. I have started out strong with SP early last year, but then I don't know what happened, I faultered, and struggled, and then drifted away...I want it back...I felt better when I ate right and exercised regularly...I want it back.

    Welcome back.... I also fell off the wagon and I am starting over. I am taking things much slower this time. I am making smaller goals and concentrating on them,,, I am not worrying about the long term goals. We are here to help.... I am here to help... if you need to talk or some support let me know. Be proud of all the accomplishment you make, even the small ones because they are your stepping stones to a healthier life. Good luck!! HUGS, Kathy

    Hey, there' nothing wrong with you. motivation comes and goes for everyone. Some of the things i do to keep motivation high:

exercise early in the day. Even if it's just a 20 minute walk, it really boost my energy and sets the tone for my day.

set small goals. set a small goal (like walk for 10 minutes) and wehn you surpass it, it feels great. Set a high goal and don't achieve it, and it doesn't feel so great.

hang with motivating people: if you don't have any people to motivate you to move more and eat better in your real life, then you know where to find them in your virtual life...right here!

heavy feeling sinuses go away

Wednesday, January 14, 2009

I have had a headache since Saturday morning - it's better but it's still there, I feel like my sinuses are probably a major pulprit in this. I've been trying to shake this, but it's still being a "Klingon" - will be happy when it's gone.

    Have you tried taking something like Sudafed Sinus Headache? I have major sinus issues and that one helps a lot. Also try drinking some gatorade. The low sugar kind works too, but it works amazing for headaches.

I hope you feel better soon!

Trying to get the "ice-jam" out of my head and get into this again

Saturday, January 10, 2009

I don't know if winter has gotten to me, but I am having a terrible time getting my head in the right mind set again. Have made a point of exercising only 3 days so far this week, but my eating just feels out of control.
I'm sure a lot of this is emotional eating because my son is starting to contribute to a lot of stress at home (he's 22, unemployed, asked to move back for 2-3 months and has been there 15 months now-hasn't worked a day), I'm reaching the point of kicking him out - which last time involved me having to have the police evict him because he refused to leave.
Also it doesn't help that my employer closed done their Fitness Place on 12-31-08. I'm just feeling like I have no routine in my life other than going to work.
I know it will get better, but I really think it's going to get "darker" before the dawn.

    It's really hard to eat right during stressful times, for sure. What helps me is to realize that even though things might be falling apart around me causing me distress, that is no reason for me to add to the distress by eating too much and exercising too little. I fully believe that we as women sometimes treat stray animals better than ourselves.

Be kind to yourself. Be gentle with yourself.
Ask yourself why you are choosing a destructive path when you are the one person who should be cheering for you! I know its hard because I went on quite an eating bender after my mastectomy, then I realized that it was such a horrible way to treat my healing body.

I personally love the Leslie Sansone Walk Away the Pounds DVD's and do them at home. Before the cancer diagnosis, I lost 35 pounds using them.

I wish you the very best with the situation, and hope you have a quick turnaround.

didn't eat healthy over the weekend but got exercise

Monday, January 05, 2009

01-04-09 Had to chop the berm across the end of my driveway with an axe because of the ice - they had plowed the road (again) Friday night around 10pm. I threw the big chunks out of the way and shoveled the rest - I also shoveled and chopped to widen the driveway (I'm tired of doing backbends to get around the mirror on the outside of my vehicle) - also re-shoveled the path to the bird feeder...that took about an hour total.

01-05-09 Did the Leslie Sansone 1 mile booster routine this morning - gotten get my metabolism firing up again.
