April 1st week goal UNMET

Tuesday, April 10, 2007

The goal was to get to the gym once-it didn't happen. Maybe this week. Last night I woke up at 1 am, then 5:44 am, and the thought popped into my head to go then before work started at 7:30am. It didn't happen. So my goal is to go this week. I know how I want to be, fit and healthy. Last week I did a minute of jumping rope, and I was so out of breath. When I was a kid, my friends and I used to jump double dutch the entire lunch hour and small recess'. I will get back to that good health.
Easter was a disaster. I have no self-control whatsoever. I made a new recipe, lemon squares, from the Kraft magazine. They had cream cheese in them-well I more or less inhaled them. It will be a long time before I make them again because they are just too good-and I need to avoid things like that.
I would like to say I am going to go for a walk now, but I don't think that would be truthful. Maybe I will wake up early again and actually get to the gym in the morning, when there is way less people there. People from work go there in the mornings and I don't really want to see them, but if I can't seem to get my butt in gear after work, perhaps morning is what I will have to do.
Have a good evening all. We can reach our goals. I know in time I will.


Nothing Yet

Wednesday, April 04, 2007

Soooooooooooooo, it is 7:19 pm, and I have done absolutely nothing in my drive to win the battle of the bulge. I care yet I dont today. But I do plan to crank my stereo and do some indoor walking/dancing for a bit. The stress of other areas in my life are weighing me down. It is a head game, and I am going to figure it out and win.

Have a good evening

Another day gone awry

Tuesday, April 03, 2007

I was supposed to be off work today. My plan was to get back into the gym when it was quiet, to ease into it. Well, at 7:30am work called and could I come in. So I did. And the gym was left at the wayside, yet again. I know I will complete my task/goal for the week of getting there once, perhaps tomorrow. It's frustrating. Anyway, I did dance around for 25 minutes-that is something I guess. I didn't go for a walk like I planned. I was even wearing proper shoes. I am frustrated with myself. I want to become the person I dream of, but something holds me back. Fear maybe. Fear of success more than failure I think.

    I feel for you, and just wanted to tell you to keep your chin up, and the longer you stick with it, the easier it will become!!

The quote that has kept me going the last week is "Fake it til you make it!" which is something Dr. Phil always says, but that's really what I've been doing. If someone came to my house and overheard me, they would think I was crazy, but I literally tell myself "I'm thirsty, I need water. I love water." And, it's worked so far. The biggest thing for me, though, I think, was making a PUBLIC blog everyday, and putting in there when I mess up for all the SP world to see. I also put in the blog "I forgive myself" because it's something that I've had a hard time with.

I always had a reason before to fail... if my husband wasn't as supportive as I thought he should be, I said "screw it. he doesn't care, why should i?" and I'd quit right away.... but this time, I have made a commitment to myself that no matter what happens, no matter how many bad days I have, I will continue the fight. Because I am worth it. Period.

Wow, okay, I just rambled. Sorry... Just want you to know that YOU ARE WORTH IT, and it will get better and easier.

MY PERSONAL GOAL for April 1 week

Monday, April 02, 2007

I am going to try not to eat any of the hersheys mini's or peanut butter cups I have left over that I bought last week for the rest of this week. I know I can do it. They will be my Easter treat. Once they are done I am going to try very hard not to give in to temptation and buy them. If I do find myself craving chocolate, as I am sure I shall, I will go a different route and buy 1 chocolate bar, instead of a bag of minis because I seem to have no self control around chocolate whatsoever.


Another step back

April 2, 2007
I went to work today and had a busy day. There is no work tomorrow_I am on call, and who knows when I will get called back again-this week or next. So I stressed, and instead of tying on running shoes (my gym bag was in the trunk of my car), I headed home, doing a detour at the local tim hortons for a box of timbits. They are almost gone. The thought crossed my mind briefly to go for a walk, but I couldn't motivate myself. I decided tomorrow is going to be the day I get back into the gym-during the day it will be less chaotic and I can ease back in. I am excited to get back on the equipment, yet anxious at the same time (people phobia). I am not a lost cause, everyone has moments of backsliding. I am sure I will have others.
