Off the wagon

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

I broke, I fell off the wagon. I have spent the past week eating complete junk, going to an all you can eat buffet, not working out. It's sad really. I was doing so bloody well and I just stopped. I don't know why but I did, so now I have to bust my ass to get back to where I was. This will be hard. I hope to have people here help keep me accountable. I need to do this, I need to prove to myself that I can do this. I CAN do this. Starting from the top I suppose.

    So you took a vacation....welcome home now! It sounded like you had a great time at the buffets and not working out... No worries though, as with any coming home from a vacation, there's always a huge pile of stuff to do. In no time, you should be all caught up and rearing to go. Good luck!

mumble grumble stupid plateau

Thursday, April 04, 2013

When I first started spark, I lost 17lbs in just a few short weeks and I was so happy with myself, but then something terrible happened. The scale, it just stopped moving. How could it!? What gives it the right!? Well, I don't like it not moving, it's making me loose my motivation, making me upset with my weightloss. Well, today I have decided to do something to change that, I am starting the plateau busting spark coach program, here's hoping it helps!


New goal? Stress management!

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

Well I've lost 20lbs now, but I've plateaud. I think my next step will be to reduce the stress in my life. This will be difficult but doable.

Action steps?
Sit back and look at what is causing my stress. If it is work, a quick break will help. Overwhelmed with chores? Ask for help. Money? redo my budget. Etc.

I also plan on writing in my journal whenever possible, because once I write something down I can stop worrying since it's already written down.

Other stress busters: Having a nice long hot bubble bath, listening to my Chameleon Circuit, hulahooping, watching the tele, knitting.

I hope you also journal what reduces your stress and what is just a nice thing to do for yourself.
I too write things down to relieve stress.
Best wishes on the journey to better health

The Journy so Far

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

Here I am, 2 months after I started and 15lbs lighter. When I set out to loose 40lbs the first bit of weight just flew off, and now it's taking more effort to work towards my goal. I need to revamp! Remotivate!

I'm starting by begining to use this blog, and hope that is all the kick I need though I will most likely need more then just this. I will need to start bribing- err rewarding myself for dedicated work outs as opposed to just relying on work to keep me excersized. 'm thinkinking a piggy bank that gets change for every half hour worked out, once a month I get to empty it, andevery week of consistant excersize I get to spend two hours relaxing.

Hope this helps.

    I started slowly in July of 2007 and am still going slowly after over 63 pounds down. It is well worth it. Keep focused for success. You can do it. Go for it.
