Moving Forward

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

Two days of commitment! I started yesterday. I actually surprised myself (not really) with how out of shape I am. I bought some new fitness DVD's. With the new year, everything to do with fitness can be found on sale in stores. I bought some Biggest Loser DVD's. I would like some of the Sparkpeople items, but I don't believe they ship to Canada, so I am getting back into taking advantage of the website. Time working out wasn't long to start-a 16 minute indoor power walk yesterday, and a 21 minutes one today. But I felt it. I am motivated after it. In fact, as soon as I log off here, I think I may hop on my upright bike or my recumbant and pedal for a bit. I have decided I am going to slowly work my way back into the gym-I mean I pay for it. Anxiety is a big issue with me-and crowds, so my plan is to start this Friday after work-it will have died down some as the week progressed. I am moving forward, back on the right path which I have chosen. Yay me!!!

Yesterday is History

Wednesday, May 09, 2012

Yesterday not a good day. I started with my sit-ups in bed before the work day began which was good. It was crazy at work, so I decided to skip the gym. I went home, ate a healthy vegetarian lasagne, then blew it. I ate 3 (Though they were small) but still, 3 peanut butter ice cream sandwhiches(peanut butter ice cream between two peanut butter cookies)-which makes 6 cookies. I will say I did at least ride my recumbant for 20 minutes, but still am unhappy with my work-out and eating day. But now, yesterday is over, and today is new-so I am going to give it my all today. Luckily there are no more ice cream sandwhiches in the house, and now that I know my downfall with them (this was the first time I bought them to try), I will NOT be buying them again. I have no willpower around certain foods, so I need to avoid them until I am able to enjoy just one. Have a good day.

    I don't have junk food in the house as a general rule. It isn't healthy for me, therefore it isn't healthy for my kids or anyone else for that matter. I have a lot of healthy snacks, fruits & veggies though so if a snack attack will all be healthy and good for me! lol My son (soon to be 20) complains all the time about no junk food in the house, so he now goes out and buys his own. Considering he is a bean pole it doesn't bother him! He has learned to not bring it in the house though...the trash can likes to eat junk food! emoticon

One thing that I always force myself to do when I've had a hard or bad day at work (which is often) is to do a work out. It really does help you feel better and it is harder for me to indulge after working out so hard.

    I am just like you. There are some foods I just cannot have in the house because they seem to keep calling me until I cave in. Now I know my tigers and I work hard to avoid certain things.

    emoticonJust the fact that you posted this 'mea culpa' helps you! Progress,, not perfection. I have no will power when goodies are around. Even cooking healthy spark meals tempts me to eat more than I should. emoticonChris

getting it done

Thursday, May 03, 2012

I didn't go to Zumba last night, but I did ride my recumbant bike at home for 35 minutes. This morning I did over 100 sit-up/crunches before I left my bed. After work it will be gym day.

Today Not Tomorrow

Wednesday, May 02, 2012

I have that saved on my e-calendar at work. It now pops up at day's end recurring. Yesterday I did get go to the gym. I am pretty happy. Yesterday is over and onto today. Today, I am thinking of actually going to a Zumba class, surrounded by some people with a common goal, fitness and fun. My sister-in-law and her friends will be there, so it won't be strangers. Time to get to work though. Have a good one.

looking too far ahead

Tuesday, May 01, 2012

My problem is I have been focusing too much on the distant future and getting overwhelmed and worried about the changes to me, that I let it sabotage my beginning. Starting yesterday, I still know where I want to be, but I am focusing on the present day more. I wll reach my goal, one day at a time. So today, I have my plan of attack. Today I am going to go to the gym after work. Yesterday I worked out at home-my own interpretation of ZUMBA-sweat I did. I even set my alarm clock 15 minutes early, and rode my recumbant bike for a few minutes this morning. I keep telling myself, what I want to be-strong, fit, healthy. I don't want to be out of breath from pulling my little nephew up hill in his wagon. I want to charge the hill. One day at a time. Tomorrow is done-today is NOW.
