Giving it your all

Tuesday, October 16, 2007

We can only do our best in life. I went home from work yesterday worried about an upcoming meeting today. I journalled my thoughts, then after writing I let it go and concentrated on riding my recumbant bike and vegging out on television. The meeting still popped into my head once in awhile but I managed not to let it get to me too much.
If we do our best, nobody can ask more, and for those that do--they are not worth the effort to begin with.


Motivational Visualization

Monday, October 15, 2007

I am a firm believer in this. The other day I saw a photo and though it wasn't of me, I realized if I keep on eating the junk I have-fast food, quick hunger fix, then I will surely end up in the same place as the person in the photo. It has become a motivator. A few months ago I was reading Prevention magazine and there was a photo of a woman whose weight was the same as mine at the time. She was in a bathing suit. Her height was the same, and I realized that was me in a sense. Then I saw her after picture, and realized with some extra effort that too could be the me, I feel I am inside. The inside will only meet the outside with effort.

asking for help

Wednesday, September 26, 2007

so true. this week at work i am doing different duties while my co-worker is on holiday. Sitting at the computer, and doing something different, i drew a blank on what i had been shown. I needed to ask for help. Though I would've loved to have been able to get through it on my own-there was a time issue to deal with. At the time stress and anxiety ran high, but now i can see everything turned out in the end. help doesn't mean you are helpless.


a picture is worth a thousand words

last night i saw some photos of myself in what i remember as thinking i was looking great and fashionable in what i was wearing. well, fashionable i may have been, but i looked awful. i have never seen myself look so fat before. i don't get it. could the camera be wrong. i know i need to lose some weight, but i haven't fluctuated in years size wise, though at times pants have been slightly tighter than normal, and then over the summer i thought i had lost a few inches. the exercise bandwagon is calling yet i can't get motivated. ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.......................

today I am going to go for a walk after work. The summer hours are almost gone as is the warm weather. I don't get outside enough as it is.
