A LITTLE DISCOURAGED

Thursday, January 28, 2010

Today was my weigh in @ curves & in 3 wks of working out I only lost 1 lb (2lbs on here cause its been 4 wks).
I know that I have 2 give my body time to adjust to my new routine BUT seriously I was doing alot less cardio then I m now.
I know that I can't give up & I won't but I just want 2 cry. Although I m proud that as I was riding my bike pas Burger King I didnt stop & get that delicious $1.00 double cheeseburger mmmmm, they r sooo good.
Poor hubby, when he called today & I told him about how little I lost he was 'BABE THATS GREAT YOUR LOSING AGAIN' & I snapped on him I did apologize I was just so discouraged, but he made me feel better. He made me realize how far I've come & that I'm still going. (I m truly blessed to have him as my hubby)
I m no going 2 focus on moving forward & keeping my February Goals.

    Don't get too discourage and give in to temptation. Just note you may be gaining muscle or in a plateau status right now. Just keep doing the good work and it will eventually catch up. ((hugs)) I know exactly how you feel...... emoticon

    I kn ow what you mean about those Burger King double cheeseburgers. I see the sign advertising them and I think, "Wow". Then I remember I am a sparker and drive right on by.
You are doing great. Your body is adjusting.

    I know how discouraging it can be when the scale barely moves. But losing anything is nothing to scoff at when you know you're trying hard, as you are. You should be proud of yourself! I'm so glad that your hubby is supportive of you because that makes all the difference. Your hubby sounds a lot like mine, and I couldn't ask for a better one either!

FEBRUARY GOALS

Tuesday, January 26, 2010

I have decided to challenge myself for Feb.

I challenge myself to do 90 mins of cardio 6 days a wk.

I challenge myself to eat within my calorie intake every day. NO EXCEPTIONS.

I challenge myself to blog or journal everyday.

This is my way of not just getting back on track but jump starting my weight lost. I've been teasing my daughter that I will weigh less then her by Easter (it's my way of trying to get herto take her weight serious). I havent been on a scale since I went back to curves a little over 2 wks ago; Friday is my weigh in, sooooo we'll c how I'm doing then.

I'M BACCKKK

Monday, January 25, 2010

I'm bacckkkk.
Well, I decided to end my 2 wk break a little early.

I m in a much better place mentally right now.
I m working out every day; I was blessed my brother is moving & he has let me use his bowflex treadclimber, WOW is that a workout. I m back @ curves 3x a wk. Riding my bike as much as possible.

I re-watched biggest loser on Saturday and a conversation between Bob & the green team set the bulb off for me. The said that they were there to learn how to eat eat better & to exercise but not to change who they are. It got me think who they were got them were they are. DUH Why do I never stay on track cause I haven't changed enough. It's not just an outside change it has to be a complete inside and outside every which way change.
Why do ppl gain back their weight WHY cause they don't do an overall change.

Well its gonna b different for me this time. I have changed more then I even realized. I've changed inside & out. This is for my life. A life that I plan to live & live it to the fullest.
I went to visit my hubby today & even he realized that he has to make these full life changes (his for another reason not weight). But during this involuntary separation we will each work on our own issues & when God decides to bless us with our reunion we will both be better ppl.

SO HERE IS TO CHANGES emoticon

God Bless!

    Welcome Back! Glad to see have had time to work out and gather some perspective on this process. I think you have a great attitude about it. Good look to you. Hope you will be with Mahogany for the Spring Challenge.

    Welcome Back!!!

You hit the nail on the head with this blog :) It has to be a complete change, or it's not going to last. Unfortunately, that's a realization everyone needs to find on their own. I know I did. I had some help from my personal trainer getting there, but it wasn't anything specifically he said, one day it just clicked.

I was yelling at the green team during that conversation! Stop being so stubborn and listen to what these people are trying to tell you! They know what they are talking about.

So happy to hear you are doing well :) Are you up for another go with Mahogany? Getting ready to set up for Spring and would love to have you with us again.

2 WK BREAK

Friday, January 15, 2010

I'm not gonna be on Sparkpeople much for the next2 wks. I've decided that I m gonna take a break & get my head straight. I will pop in & out; I will still log my food & fitness, or @least try to.

Hubbys only home for a wk or 2 more then he is going into a program & I will have no contact for the 1st 30 days then for the last 60 days I will get to write, receive phone calls & a few visits. So I need to spend some time working on my marriage.

The broken foot isnt improving so now I have to c an orthopedic surgeon. My depression is really bad . My insurance cards are on their way YEAH.

My daughter (La's mother) is staying with me with her 3 yr old daughter. So my schedule is all screwed up.

I've over committed myself with things @ the church so I'm asking the Lord to help me sort that out. The thing there is even if I over do it there, I FEEL GOOD ABOUT MY WORK THERE.

As I said I will pop in & out but I need to figure things out. I will miss u guys & b thinking of you often. I truly do consider alot of people on here to b my friends. I thank y'all 4 being so supportive. I will b checking my messages in the morning with my coffee but no longer on through out the day as I used to b. So today I will try to check out any new blogs & c y'all in 2 wks

I thank God fro each & every1 of y'all.

    I wish I had the magic words to make this all better for you. I have been where you are and dealt with a husband that had to go into treatment too. You feel like you're being pulled in 15 different directions and you want to scream ,"Leave me alone for ten minutes!" But I promise, this too shall pass. But I discovered an interesting thing while my husband was in treatment. I liked my life a whole lot better when he wasn't there.
All the rest of the things didn't seem to matter as much. I slept better, ate healthier, and learned to laugh again. He is deceased now and I am married to a great guy but I will never forget those days.
