It's been awhile...three years or so since I have done any writing within my SP blog. I'm pushing myself to begin again, to believe and trust in momentum and connecting the dots.

My diabetes and overall health have gotten worse not better and my lack of clean healthy eating and exercise have brought to another bottom...but within all of this, I am bringing all of previous experience - success & failures to each day and starting over. One pound, one day at a time.

So yesterday I ate clean, healthy and worked out. Today has started out well, ate a little protein...did my workout which consists of walking intervals, sets of squats and side step intervals with dumbells. I'm just getting back to it might not sound very heavy duty, but it's a huge improvement and folding in small, practical changes that keep me safe and successfully consistent is how I have achieved success in the past.

I'm going to be doing my very best to tune out the negative voices inside and outside of me and just keeping it moving slow and steady, working hard to build my strength, endurance and gain back more and more mobility.

I'm not giving up!

    I have been logging in daily since the beginning of July. I'm still not doing optimally, but I keep trying. I hope you are trying, too, and would love to see an update to know how you are.

    Hey Buddy, you are moving and exercising, who said you have to run a marathon or become aerobics queen????

Slowly slowly. BTW you have done better than me. Today I went and splurged on sweets..... and still no exercise

    I am glad to know you. I just recently read the blog about your journey and it was amazing.

I think that our worst enemy is our mind.

I keep changing the way I think to help me loose. For example, I try to think, not on the amount of pounds I have to loose, but only about how I will feel when I loose the next pound. That is my only immediate reachable weight. Also, I like to think about the new good habits that I am getting. Going on PILOT with the new healthy changes help me to keep going.

    It's only 2 and a half years emoticon and it's never to late to pick yourself up, dust yourself off and try again. Or keep trying. I, too, have lost the path but I have kept up trying even when I am mostly not successful. For me that means I have held the line on my regaining of weight so that I am not back at square one. But I am far from where I had been. SOOOO glad to see you post again! Know that there are folks out here that support your journey (BTW, my ID changed from labrys04092 to labrys32726 because I moved to a different zip code). Keep coming back. That's what I'm doing. Let's move it forward together!

Up early getting after it...busy day!

Cindy loved her new earrings, simple classy diamond studs 1.8 ctw....a splurge for sure - but a good one.

I'm neck in work already, been at my desk since 4am....looking forward to a good work out later and before you know it...the weekend will be here!

Good Morning!

Up way too early after dropping the remote control into my glass of crystal light. Fell asleep in bed with the tv, woke up at 3 and in the dark after turning off the television proceeded to put the remote into my glass next to our bed....absolute genius!

Oh well, got up...fixed the remote and got it crackin' for the day.

Busy out at 8:30, my accountant at 10am, and a session here at my home after that with a new guy that I'm training on the other job. Got a nice bump in my salary yesterday, unexpected and I have mixed feelings about it...but we'll see. No complaints...

Pulled the trigger on a real nice gift for Cindy that is arriving today...I'm pretty sure she'll love them!

    Reminds me of the time I dropped my cell phone into the dishwater. That didn't turn out too well, though! Even though I fished it out immediately, the damage was done. Had to buy a new one.

I hope Cindy likes her gift!

Good Morning!

Up early getting after it for Monday!

Overall, a pretty relaxing weekend at home, lots of sports going on here in Wisconsin.

Cindy & I have a pretty busy week ahead of us, so my plan is to stay in the day, do my best and accept myself every step of the way.
