Recommitment

Monday, April 26, 2010

recommiting to the team (6WBMO) and to myself. Today I will commit to being a better team member and to sticking with the POP and doing my cardio daily, drinking my water everyday and to logging on and joining the forums. I will take it one day at a time and I will be successful.

Woohoo and have a POP day.

  You can do it I'm so glad I have someone to relate to what I'm doing and can ask questions. If you ever need some encouragement I'm here for you.

Getting over the funk

Wednesday, April 14, 2010

emoticon
Just need to vent for a moment and then I think I will be better. I know I did this in my last blog but again...she stood me up....came up with an excuse and thinks it is ok. What gives? How do I help get her motivated to see she really needs to make time for herself and make it a habit no matter what comes up in life. I think I am better now but if anyone has a suggestion for my 'funk' my gym friend has put me in because her life is 'funky' please help. I joined the gym closer to her house and now it is just not worth it when I could go to the gym by work or MUCH closer to my house since I am going by myself anyway. And BTW how do I tell her in a nice way?

    Gosh I wish I had an answer for you. The only thing I can say - is not to let her "funky" life get the best of you. Keep after her and keep showing her how fun and beneficial it can be. When we sees you looking awesome - maybe she'll be reminded of why she wanted to do this in the first place. Keep focused and keep at it! I'll show her with your actions soon enough!

  It sounds like you wanted a motivator. Instead you are getting a de-motivator. Also 20 miles probably is not enough to switch it to your location it has to be 30. I would say you have to look at her track record (excuse the pun). Is she the type that goes frequently to the gym before you agreed to go together? If NOT then you may need to just cut your losses. You cannot change her. You can try not to drive her away if you are trying to be nice by just going without her and raving on how much it helped to go and how great you feel after. She probably just really does have a lot of conflicting problems just now. Let her know she must MUST make time for herself and that is what this is. Yes. She is letting you down too but she probably has too much on her plate and the only way to help is a soft sell and going without her. MEET NEW PEOPLE THERE WITHOUT HER. Sometimes... fate is at work when we least expect it. You only have so many months you are obligated ...or just figure up the true cost gas, time, etc., and pay the cancellation fee sweet talk the manager, and rejoin elsewhere if she does not come around. Hope this inspires! FYI: I am a size 22 right now and can't get anyone to go to the gym with me either. Mine is open 24 hours and I am getting the nerve up, as I was in a serious car wreck 4 years ago and I am afraid to come "out of the rubble" on my own--every discovery of what I can no longer do is shocking; but I should be thankful it was not worse. I operate on the ignorance can be bliss model. So you can encourage me and hopefully I and others like me here will listen. LOL. emoticon

    I don't have anyone doing this with me. But if I was you, I would politely talk to her about it. Let her know you feel. If she's not serious about the gym, I wouldn't bother. Don't let her drag you down because of her lack of motivation. You have to work your bum off to find your own inner motivation and that's the only kind that will fuel action. If she can't find it, then she's in that state where she doesn't care. You can't change that no matter how much you want. If she wants to be lazy and then whine about her weight, size, whatever - why is she whining? To find a listening ear? Is it just to find something in common with you? Or does she really care? Talk to her like you would anyone. If you have a hard time with words, write it out and give her a call.. stick to your notes during the conversation to progress in the matter - not get side tracked and lose your fortitude. That helps me sometimes (and no one knows differently!) HTH!

Making progress....slowly but surely

Friday, April 09, 2010

Week 3 going into 4 and I have worked out a minimum of 3 times in the past 3 weeks...which is rather amazing considering. I have joined a gym closer to a friends home and rather a ways from mine(20 miles), so I have someone to go with in hopes we will go, she usually him haws and eventually goes but this week has been tough for her and she is rather vocal about the entire thing...which is just discouraging considering she is maybe a size 12 and not happy with that and I am trying my best to squeeze into the 22's-- most times I just want to smack her...I think it would make me feel better...LOL. Enough venting..thanks for listening. Looking forward to the weekend. Have a great one. emoticon

    She may be a 12 and you are working your way down from the 22 but guess who is healthier inside! You're doing great!

Trying to get back on the horse....

Thursday, January 28, 2010

I have no idea why this time around it has become so much harder to get back on the horse and ride toward the goal. I try at breakfast then I get to work and there they are those darn donuts...and I try to tell myself oh they were left out they are hard balls of sugar...keep walking but then I turn around and someone has brought in a king cake. Boy am I glad it was filled with goo I don't like those so I go back to my desk. At lunch I put my healthy choice lunch in the microwave and I wait but I hear it calling my name...Goo is good Goo is yummy this time you might like the Goo. Nope I don't so I eat my lunch eat my salad and my HC lunch and go for a walk with my extra time....left from not leaving for fast food or take out. So that is good I tell myself. But no now it is 3:00 and the Goo is calling louder. So I hop online and try to block out the meltdown I would have if I cave into the urge to eat the gooey king cake or the donut. But once I am home and there are no temptations I eat my healthy dinner and walk around the block only to come home and collapse on the couch from the sheer exhaustion from not caving into the king cake and donuts and pray with all my might that no one brings that crap to work tomorrow. OMG the stress of it all is so exhausting.

    Make sure you are taking your vitamins! I am restarting after a loss of 120lbs back in 2006 and regained with the pregnancy and nursing of my beautiful twin girls. I didn't take my vitamins last time around, this time I'm taking prenatals and my cravings are basically nil! Also, sugarfree gum. It's saving me during those times when I MUST chew on something sweet!

    I don't know if you meant for it to be funny, but I laughed at your prayer "that no one brings that crap to work tomorrow!"

I hear you sister!

I can if I think I can.....Right?

Thursday, March 12, 2009

14 days until I get on a cruise ship with my skinny friends...and all I want to do is eat the girl scout cookies and sweets. ..and crawl back in bed.

I knew I could do it back in January but now for some reason I sabatoge it and can't get past needing to do it.

Why? oh Why?

So as of today I can and I will stay on track, stay on target and get in the dress and wear it on the cruise.

I can if I think I can....and I will.

    YOU CAN DO THIS! You've already accepted a goal to achieve and you will do it because you're driven to look gorgeous in that dress you picked out. Try taking a picture of the dress and place a picture of your head on top and THEN see if that doesn't keep you on track!

Divert yourself by walking, drinking water, visiting friends, call family, volunteer your service, anything to keep the focus. We believe you can do this!
