Come Sick or High Water I'm doing this...

Tuesday, August 31, 2010

I'm not feeling so well today. My nose is running and I just feel tired. I have a feeling that these are the days that are going to be hard. I'm already looking to the refrigerator to make me feel better. Good thing I only brought my pre-portioned meals to work or I'd be hitting up the fridge every couple of seconds. Nice thing about where I work is that you have to drive or walk a mile before you can get any kind of food outside the office and they don't have vending machines in the office. So what I've been doing is locking up my debit card so if I leave the office I have no option but to eat what I've already brought in. I'm thinking outside the box to keep me on track.

I do however have to find a way to sleep. I went to bed around 11pm last night and was back in the office at 5 am this morning. I think I might be self-sabotaging all my best laid plans.

Well here's to another day of hitting the bricks and making it happen no matter what. Runny nose be damned I have exercise and healthy eating to do and your not gonna stop me!!!

    Make sure you get enough sleep! Especially if you aren't feeling 100%. I just read an article about sleep and weight loss and they think they are related, i.e., if you're not getting enough sleep it can stall your weight loss efforts. Hang in there and keep up the great work!

1 week down a lifetime to go

Sunday, August 29, 2010

Today was work and housework and try to fit in a work out and try not to look at the sacle and measuring tape!!! The scale keeps telling me to stand on it and I just know at the end of the day if I do that ill be disappointed... So I've moved the scale out of site so I can just focus on being healthy not the numbers... So this first week hasn't been that difficult I've surrounded myself with great support, brought my family into the loop, and I have posted pictures of different rewards that I can have by sticking with it. So today as I'm getting ready to wind down I'm just thinking how much this is what I needed in my life and that this was the time to do it. Its like the planets are aligned or something. I hope everyone else is seeing what a great thing this is in their lives as well... So pick up ur glass of water and toast to one week down and the rest of our lives to go!!

    I know that I have a hard time NOT focusing on the numbers sometimes... it gets to be a bit addictive. This time around, I've tried to focus more on how I'm feeling and how well I'm treating my body, and I think that mentality is helping.

I wish you well along your journey - hang in there!

Just so everyone knows how this started

Saturday, August 28, 2010

It's wonderful what one relaxing, happy weekend can do for a person. I spent the last weekend in a WOW kind of state. When I came back I had actually experienced relaxation and happiness for the first time in many many years. So I just wanted to share the pics from that moment. There are pics of the moon, the flowers and trees around, and my best friend. All of these things added up to a change in my attitude towards everything. I now have an "I can and will" attitude. Stick with me and I'll show you how it's done. emoticon

Day #6 - falling down and getting back up

Saturday, August 28, 2010

Wow so it took me 5 days to fall off the wagon and when I did I sure did it. I was on schedule to stick to my healthy 1600 calories and then wham.... Family Emergency and I'm in the drive through at McDonald's ordering a quarter pounder, 20 piece chicken mcnugget and a small fry... Amazing how one little thing which causes you an emotional crisis also turns into a food crisis. But it's okay because I got right back on track this morning a little wiser and now figuring out things I can do instead of fast food to handle my emotions. Gym membership in the future coming on.... I'm really dumbfounded. I don't know what is different about this time but I still feel motivated and charged up (usually that lasts about 1 day). I can see the future healthy me in my minds eye and I can't wait to see her in person. Hoo Rah!!!


Day #3 Comes and Goes

Thursday, August 26, 2010

Another fabulous day comes and goes. I stuck to my guns and things seemed to be going well. I hopped on the scale though and it showed a gain of 3 pounds... Please let it be water weight. Hiking is on the schedule for tonight (but it's started to rain) so I'll be readjusting the exercise to something inside. Can't wait!! Goals are in place. Daily motivation is there. Go weight loss!!!
