A New Dawn

Thursday, January 02, 2014

I am sitting here tonight on the couch thinking to myself....
I know the things I need to do and the things I want to do.....
But ..... I just don't do them.
Know in March I will be smoke free for 1 whole year. Hurray for me.
Now I'm just stuck in this rut of getting off my butt and going out and doing something. That is one of my changes I am making for myself this year, is to be
more social. I don't want to think of it as getting into shape or becoming fit... I want to think of it as being more social. But my question is how do I do it?? How do I get started with it when I have no friends that have any money or they're always working? How do I start doing things when I have to work so early in the morning and especially when I have to work on the weekends. To meet new friends would be weird for me, can I learn to expand my "friends list"?

Hmmmmm..... I will concur this obstacle in my life.... maybe

I feel that I have lost my way. I have been a smoker for almost 15years and 5 months ago I had had enough with it, so I got the e-cigarette and the 4 months into it, I got tire of that..... So now I don't do any of it, but I can't find a solution for myself to quit over eating or getting my self back into the gym. I felt great after I quit smoking but now I am back to not being able to breathe while in the gym, I don't understand, you stop smoking to be able to breather, it works for a short time, then your back to not being able to breather, and the slightest thing can set off an attack. I think to my self, how am I ever going to get back in the gym when I can't breathe? Any ideas?

On another note, how do I stop over eating, should I try blind folding myself while I eat? I don't have a a problem with eating healthy, it's overeating or giving myself too much room to eat junk food. I just don't understand myself sometimes, maybe its because I don't see the results physically. I can feel it and see on the scale, but not seeing it physically is probably what's making me put my brakes on and setting my goals back. What's a good way to battle myself mentally.....

For the past 8 years going on 9 years I have been participating in the SCA which stand for Society for Creative Anachronisms ( hopefully I spelled that right lol). I have always wanted to get in to hard suit armor and fight, I feel that it's good for me because it is a good workout/ cardio and it would allow me to de-stress. Well last night, I was watching my little "brother" start fighting hard suit and I got a little jealous because I wanted that to be me. The moment I started in the SCA, I have had this need to get into the fighting. This need has triumphed everything else such as drumming, sewing, crafts, etc. I WANT to FIGHT!!!!!! So this is going to be my goal. The only thing I am worried about is that I have always said that we go out on the field as a household, but my captain has this idea about how we should look in armor that is so far out there that it would take 10 years to get on the field... I don't want to wait that long, I want on the field now and I am just so afraid that it's going to up set her........ I think having this situation is going to be my only obstacle. But I can do this and I WILL do this!!! Wish me luck :)

    Don't listen to everyone! What helps me out is having snacks that are healthy and foods that are healthy already. One bad meal is not going to ruin your diet.

For example, my mom had KFC at her home the other day, so I just took off the skin of the chicken and made a chicken salad with avocado! It is the cole slaw that has a lot of calories!

I loooove pizza, so I found a fun recipe to make it using a portabello mushroom as a crust! I still added cheese and bell peppers and sauce. My brother told me the cheese was bad for me, but it's not in moderation. SO DON'T LISTEN TO PEOPLE! I still lost weight!

Keep on doing it!

FUN TIP: On Pinterest, there are a LOT of awesome and healthy recipes, even burgers! Just search healthy recipes. Don't give up and stop listening to people. emoticon
