Quieting that Voice Inside

Wednesday, March 05, 2014

Main Challenge (30 Points): The psychological Challenge. A huge part of losing weight involves the psychological challenges we face. For example what we say to ourselves makes a huge difference. Many times we find ourselves saying these negative things to ourselves despite our best attempts to stay positive.We may say things such as
"I don't have enough time to......."
or
"I can't keep motivated due to...."
or
"I have tried everything to lose weight and it never works..."
These get in the way of our success.

Letís thwart these issues right now. Pick a psychological issue that gets in the way of your success then Blog about it in two separate parts.

1. Write about it as though it is happening to you right now. Describe your current line of thinking, what you say to yourself, really try to make yourself believe this to be true.

2. Then blog about how it felt to think that way and how you are going to change it.


Here is my sentence:

I have been in a plateau for over two years and I will never get out of it, no matter what I do. This line of thinking runs through my mind a lot. I have lost hope. I think it's Impossible.

So how am I going to change it?

I love the new Spark page and how you can create your own virtual inspiration board. To help change my way of thinking I'm going to look at my Board every day and remind myself of just how far I've come....

I've lost 43 inches....

I've lost 100 lbs...

I went from a couch potato to a marathoner....

I can do this!!

I'm also going to visualize myself at my goal weight and start meditating.

On a physical level I'm going to start strength training (not just talking about doing it) and yoga to help with both strength, stress and body acceptance...

Also I just read my spark page and what does impossible spell?

IM POSSIBLE

    You say Plateau...I say successfully maintaing a 100-pound weight loss. Just because there's more to go doesn't mean the time spent "stabilizing" is not worthwhile. You've become a marathoner. You've learned to live 100-pounds lighter.

But now you are ready to move to the next Phase. You CAN and WILL do it...you have a great plan!

    Plateau is a word from the devil! It has to be right???

You have come so far! BUST the plateau! I know you can do it.

I am struggling right now with a 7 month plateau and hubby and I have decided to join a gym to jump start some changes. We are holding at a combined 170 pounds lost. I have more to lose!

With a good attitude, positive outlook and sweaty determination WE CAN DO THIS!

Thanks for reading my blog and I'm glad it helped. I knew that stuff, but reading it now was a different thing, When I think of my dog I think of you and your family too because we're in the same situation there.

    HUGS HUGS AND MORE HUGS!
Changing your thoughts is usually the most empowering step towards your success! You have accomplished so much! I know this next phase will be just as wonderful!! You know that most people in your boat would be losing a lot of weight by now....because they would have given up hope and gained back 70 of the 100 pounds and would be re-losing their previous weight again!!!!! You did not do that! You kept going, working, changing, evolving! I am so proud of you and so inspired by you! I hope your body lets you get to the next level because I know you are going to work hard for it- you always do!

Losing my running and walking partner...and friend

Monday, February 17, 2014



Yesterday my Sammy went to doggie heaven. He had an aggressive tumor in his nose that spread and surgery wasn't an option, and radiation is iffy (only 10-20% success and his life would have been full of appointments we couldn't afford, and I did my research, the best success story the dog lived 6 mo. Longer and then passed.) Sammy lived a total of 14 wonderful years, and lasted 6 mo. after his diagnosis.









We rescued Sammy from the dog pound in Chicago. I told my husband I felt there was a dog there that needed us, and he went, blindly, looking for the one while I was at work. How could he choose from all of these dogs? They all needed and deserved homes. But one stood out because his cries were so loud and sounded human...actually it was more like a scream. We got Sammy and while he only cost us $30, it turned out he had pneumonia and was very sick, he ended up costing us almost $1,000 which gave us a good laugh. He was worth it, though. The most handsome dog, he loved burrowing under blankets and he loved being under my feet. When we got him I was unhealthy and obese, but as I grew healthier, I discovered that inside of me, and Sam, was a runner. He became my running partner and really took to it. Later, when he got sick, he slowed to walks. But he always loved going out, even on his last day here on this earth...he could only make it a house down, but he loved it the same.





I am devastated. But we had over two months more with him than we thought...we almost lost him a few days before Christmas...but our vet suggested giving him a steroid shot and that got him through..here's what Sammy got to enjoy these last few months...








A weekend in the city and getting pampered at the Hilton.

A duck dinner.

Many walks, including my old marathon training ground and michigan avenue

Seeing Marlo and Lucy dance

Watching episodes of dexter

Seeing Ralph the dog play piano on the muppets movie

Going sledding

Seeing the snowpocolpyse...twice

Celebrated Christmas Eve, Christmas, New Year's Eve and Valentines day

Stayed by my side while I attempted Pilates

Worked from home with me the two days the office was closed with his doggy bed outside my closet office

Had a custom doggy king cape made by Lucy





.since then he's been on steroids and had 3 more shots, but in the end we could tell he was in pain...hard for him to breathe at night...and we knew it was time.











Thank you, God, for being able to take our time saying goodbye...and thank you Sammy for being the most amazing dog and partner a girl could ask for. For teaching me more about love. For always being by my side. We will always love you, Sam.

Looks like your doggie lived a great dog's life! It's wonderful that you have so many pictures and memories to share!

Eventually, if your family might feel like it (and I'm sure you know), there are so many rescue doggies - all shapes, sizes, and ages - that would love to share a home and family with you.

Wishing you and your family all the best, with lots more great workouts, in the days, weeks, and years to come.

So sorry for the heartache that I am sure you feel from his absence. They become such a big part of your daily life...it is quite a void without them. May your fond memories help you through the tough times now.

That extra time after Christmas was such a blessing. It's great that you got to spoil him extra, extra rotten! He had a wonderful life with your family -- I can tell!

    Your post was very touching it brought tears to my eyes. I lost my dog of 14 years a 1.5 ago she ate a spaghetti dinner (she loved table food) and about an hour later she passed naturally no warning but about 30 min before she started to feel sick her name was Katie. 9 months later my husband made his final push for another dog and now we have Sophie who just turned a year on February 11th she has softened my heart I didn't think I could get close to another dog so soon but she is a joy. I'm sorry Sam passed and there will be an empty spot like when you open the door coming home (that for me was the hardest). emoticon emoticon

So...I was in a Fitness DVD....Dream Come True #5?

Sunday, February 02, 2014

I haven't blogged about it. I still feel a little strange about it. I don't like to brag, and sometimes talking about blessings in our lives can feel that way. I know it's silly. But I do feel like I need to tell others how God has worked in amazing ways in my life. He has brought me out of my pit...he has blessed me with an 100+ lb. weight loss. He has given me the strength to become a Leslie Sansone Walk Leader.....then a Walk Star...then a fitness instructor at my dream gym....to be in a Walk Concert on stage with Leslie Sansone herself (my inspiration!) (and fist pump with her).....(not to mention the ability and strength to start running and finish a marathon).....and now to be featured in a DVD with her -- the same DVDs I started doing in the privacy of my own home when I was 300 lbs.

My goodness...Our God is GREAT! I would NEVER have dreamed any of this for myself.

And this DVD is a wonderful workout, it incorporates HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training), and it's great to break through a plateau, or just bring your level of fitness up. It's not for beginners, though, but it's something you could work up to! The music is very fun and "now". It really IS more like a dance party!

I got to walk with 3 other Walk Leaders, my good friend Paula, and I got to see Kerri again and meet Laura. And Leslie spent so much time with me. she was so REAL and so NICE and inspiring. It was such a life-changing awesome experience. And for her to tell ME I am an inspiration? I mean, words really can't speak to that.

Here are some pictures from filming the DVD:











You can buy it online at Amazon, it's called "Walk to the Hits, Party Songs"

    Kathy, I think this is wonderful. I use Leslie's exercise programs all the time, and the reason I say programs is because when I first discovered them and Leslie, VHS was what I used :-). I credit her programs for really helping me to lose weight and realizing there are other forms of fitness out there besides running! When it is hot here in AZ over the summer and I can't stand the gym, it has been Leslie to the rescue!!

Congratulations!!

    I don't think it's bragging at all! This is awesome Kathy! I'd say I'd go get the DVD except the one exercise I hate with a passion is HIIT, haha! :D

Back a decade ago, my husband and I were at a Kmart in our small town in SW Wisconsin, and looking through clearance videos. I saw one of a belly dancer named Amira Mor, who was at the time the leader of my sister's belly-dancing troupe in NYC. I picked it up and said to Jason, "Hey, isn't this my sister's belly-dancing troupe leader?" He looked at the DVD, then back at the shelf, and pointed to the DVD that had been behind the one I grabbed. He said, "Isn't that your sister?" And there, right behind the one of Amira Mor, was another of Amira's DVDs, called Belly Dance Your Way to Fitness, and it featured not just herself, but four of her dancers, including my sister. As Becky is completely different from most belly-dancers - rail thin, extremely pale skin, long white-blond straight hair - she was immediately visible. I HAD to buy it. My sister hadn't told us that she'd been in several DVDs, which apparently were only supposed to be on sale through Amira's website. She had no idea they were being sold at Kmart and Walmart. It was kind of a funny story. I bought every copy the store had and gave them to different family members for Christmas. :D

Thursday, January 30, 2014

I love my collarbones. I didn't used to be able to see them...I remember the day when my hand was scratching my neck, and I was so surprised that I could feel a bone there!





And I came across some old family pictures....compared to a recent picture after the marathon...
