Been gone for a while

Monday, July 30, 2012

I have to get back on track. I did not reach my goals. I had a allergic reaction to something and my eyes have been swollen shut for an entire week. I had high temps. I did not keep on my 5k training schedule. I did not track my food, or even exercise. I am a little disappointed. I will get back up and start again today. The only high point is I did loose two pounds. I was just to sick to eat.

    The important thing is you haven't given up. You are still in the game. Take the setback and move forward. Jump in right where you are. :)

No excuses

Thursday, June 28, 2012


Today I was looking over he inspiration on sparks people and this one particular image really struck home. Because really I am the only obstacle standing in the way of having a healthily life. I can make excuses like there is housework, homework, family time, bad day at work, you name it but, that exactly what it all is a excuse. I am standing in the way of a goal that would only improve all those areas of my life, my health. Is anything in this life really worth trading my health for? But I am stronger than my excuses and I refuse to use them anymore. Today at 300 pounds, I started to train for a 6k. I have already complete several 5k's. My friends and family think I have lost my mind. Maybe I have. Being 300 pounds is crazier to me though.

When a mountain seems to high to climb

Tuesday, June 19, 2012

I have entered another 5k. This time it is a virtual 5k on sparks people. At 300 pounds I never thought I would complete the first one, let alone sign up for a second. I have been living a life of excuses. I have decided to change that. If I goof on my diet one day I start again the next. If I can't exercise for a hour then I at least try for 10 minutes. I am putting one foot in front of the other to see how far I can get.

    Good for you!! When is your virtual 5k? We can do this! Just like you said--do what we can, and if we mess up, just try again. There's a really good sparkpeople article called "Two steps forward, one step back" or something like that. You can do this!

    It is a well-known saying that the first mile begins with a single step. So, keep on walking one step at a time.

a confession

Wednesday, June 06, 2012

I skipped working out for the past five days because of long shifts at work 14 hrs. I was so tired and frustrated after the three of them I spent one day resting. The next day it was cold and rainy, I only did a little light swimming. I noticed that my attitude was becoming more negative the stress from the weekend was not leaving. I then did aerobics and the wii fit and I could not believe how the blahs left and I started to feel happier, full of energy. The stress had left. I am finding that exercise is important to my mental health. If I never loose another pound it is worth the effort.

    you said it girl it is worth it in more ways than many people think.not only physically but mentally.it not only builds suppleness but stamina and endurance which can come in handy sometimes.it help release stress and makes us more able to cope with the day to day stressīs of life.not only that but it makes us look good as well.added plus with all the sweating we do it also helps to get rid of some of our toxins and mostly it is free,not always depending what you do. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    That is also a lesson I have learned since starting here!

It seems to help the depression leave ASAP.

Have a great Day!
