Day 125

Friday, March 13, 2009

Today was another blah day. I m just so exhausted; so tired all of the time. I started taking the vitamins again.

FOOD
I'm going thru sugar cravings. salt cravings, and munchies of any kind cravings. I'm gonna go food shopping tomorrow to get the stuff to make some heathly peanut butter cookies.
The good thing is that today I did eat 3 stalks of celery today. Yea I did eat some bad stuff too but I stayed within my calorie count or below it all week. I need to work on getting enough carbs & a little less fat.
It's just so hard when the money is so tight & have to fullfill 3 different adult eating needs. Goor thing is hubby's 1st pay check in 1 wk; so prayerfully I can start doing regular food shopping again.

EXERCISE
I've got to work on doing the workout videos. Cant afford a gym & weather isnt quite right yet. So walking & bike riding don't work so well with the back & cold not gettin along. Cant wait for some spring weather full time.

    Vitamins can be a good thing! I fight being anemic 90% of the time. So I understand what you mean about being tired, exhausted.....

Think back to how you felt before. Did it really feel better? WE can do this if we stick together!

Tonight I will say an extra prayer for you. Keep at it! It's like reading your bible, easy to say but sometimes harder to do.

Peace

    Yeah you for getting exercise in! Sometimes, it's just seems harder to keep a healthy focus. That's OK. It's a chance to learn where habits need extra attention. Be gentle with yourself. Keep up the good habits...and try to minimize the less healthy ones. You CAN do it!

Feeling Sorry For Myself

Wednesday, March 11, 2009

I've been doing strengthening since the beginning of November & now it hurts. It didn't bother me at 1st it was nada to it. But now I feel it every time that I do my strengthening or any workout. At 1st it just seemed so easy now I'm wondering what the heck m I killing myself for. Y m I torturing myself. Is losing weight really this important to me

Y m I even bothering I lose the weight. I gain the weight. I lose the weight. I gain the weight. It just never seems to end.

Yes, I m feeling sorry for myself. I'm cramping & emotional & just a mess today. Like everything in my life it's such a struggle, to eat right & to exercise

    I think a lot of us have been in the same boat. Think about how you feel heavier verses lighter. When are you happier?

I for one am looking forward to warmer weather, so I can walk outside in the sunshine. Find what you like and do that. For me, I do best when I mix it up. Strength train and elliptical a few days, a yoga class here.

Just hang in there! You can do it and be the best you around.

Sometimes we also just need a little hug. emoticon

    Wanted to say thanks for the blog comment.

As far as torturing yourself goes...

Find exercises that you really just plain like to do. Me personally, I love inline skating. I actually look forward to doing it, and it doesn't seem like exercise at all. When I was having to run, I was having to seriously talk myself into a workout. A lot of people like doing the Wii Fit stuff, I throw in Dance Dance Revolution now and then for variety, so even video games can be healthy! Try a bunch of new things out, and if you find some that just seem like fun, start sprinkling them into your week of exercise. I look at them as exercise treats!

You also might be feeling soreness due to improper form. You've mentally started questioning the workout, so physically you might be compromising the exercise. Check yourself that you are performing everything properly. Try shaking up things in a different order, cause you're body might be becoming bored with the routine too.

Anyway, good luck. I'm glad to see you keeping your workout and nutrition log public, cause that's an important step too.

Eating Accomplishments

Tuesday, March 10, 2009

My biggest eating accomplishment is having celery for my munchies.

I've made alot of strides with my eating. I usually stay within my calories sometimes though I'm under. Today I actually made all of my nutritional markers.

I m enjoying learning new eating habits & look forward to having many more good eating habits.

  


Day 121

Monday, March 09, 2009

I have been on sparks for 121 days.

Some have been good & some have been bad.

Today I started walking again, the 1st time in about a mth that I went & walked a mile w/o stopping. Funny thing is my breathing was fine then I come home, I walk up the steps & then my breathing starts to bothering me.

Today also marks me having to start cooking again. I have to start cooking my dad's 3 meals a day & with hubby working I be nice & we start cooking him breakfast & lunches.

I really have to start focusing on my health again. I lost 23 lbs to gain half of it back, this really sucks.

    Don't give up- get back on the wagon and keep rolling along. You are 12.5 lbs ahead of where you were 121 days ago- that is something! emoticon
