Drive by Cheerleading

Tuesday, April 19, 2011

I was driving to do some errands today and I noticed a gal running along the street. I have seen her a few times. Anyway, I was thinking, "I should roll down my window and yell at her and tell her good job!" and then I thought, "She will think you are crazy. You dont know her. She probably wouldnt even be able to hear you with her headphones on...." Anyway, I didnt do it.

So I went and got my hair cut, went to the bank and went to the grocery store and I decided to make spagetti and turkey meatballs for dinner (I know, I said Pasta wasnt worth the calories, blah, blah but I really want it so bleehhhhhh!), so I go in the pasta aisle and there she is. She is standing right in front of the pasta and I am like, "are you kidding me??? Now you HAVE to talk to her! I mean, what are the odds???" So I approached her and told her I saw her running today and I wanted to tell her good job.

She got a huge grin on her face and thanked me and told me she runs 6 miles a day, that she used to weigh 300 pounds (she is probably 170 now, im guessing)! So I tell, her me too! That I started walking a year ago and while I do not see running in my future, I get why she does and that I was proud of her cause I know what it takes to have that level of commitment. She told me she used to think that but when she started, she ran 2 stop lights at a time, then two more etc. etc.

Anyway, we had a nice little chat and I told her when she sees a hand waving from a big red truck around town, that will be me, cheering her on!

I, of course, (cause this is what I do now!) started thinking about how on SPARK, we do "drive by cheerleading" all the time and dont think a thing about stopping by someones page and telling them good job or offering our advice, wisdom, prayers, recipes,comfort or butt kicking. We may have not ever even heard of this person before or maybe it is a friend of a friend but we all do it all the time. I mean, that is how I met ALL of you!

But in the "real" world, it is harder to offer that support. It is awkward sometimes but let me tell you, I was MEANT to talk to her today for some reason and I am glad I did not let the opportunity pass me by.

How much would it make your day if a stranger had the nerve to notice and tell you how great you are looking or that they notice how dedicated you are at the gym, etc? Exactly. Spread the spark, people. Spread the spark.

    I love your perspective and feel so blessed that you share it here and I get to read it! Thank you, Jan. This is a great idea. I always give little kids on their bicycles praise, usually by tellin them what a cool bike they have. You should see their grins. Grown ups might be a bit more tricky -- I'm usually so lost in my own thoughts that it'd take a second or two for me to realize it. But what a reward!

    I totally want to honk at people I see running and walking on my running route, when I'm driving home from work, but I don't because if somebody honked at ME, I'd think they were honking cuz I'm a fat lady waddling down the sidewalk. That's my own paranoia, though, and I think it was great that you had the guts to speak to her! :)

    I've been really lucky recently and had quite a few people at the gym and at work mention the changes they've noticed. The ones at the gym have even mentioned how much I've improved my endurance and speed and how they can't believe I've started running some.
It was a great feeling the first time someone came up and waited on me to take off my headphones so they could compliment me.

    AWESOME BLOG!! I really think it would be great for someone to notice my dedication. I am at the gym every morning with the same group of ladies... most of them skinny minis (vs my 318 pound self) and no one ever talks to each other. I would be aweome for someone to say something! I get the glares, but that's about it.

    GREAT blog, and SO TRUE. That was wonderful that you talked to that running lady when you ran into her in the grocery store, and just look at all you had in common! It is harder in the "real" world, but don't we all LOVE to hear those words of praise? That's probably why I come here so much, not only to offer praise to others (like you), but to write a blog occasionally and wrap myself in the warmth of the wonderful comments I receive. I honestly don't think I could have achieved this weight loss without the help of Spark! You and everybody else here are my secret to weight loss. I always say there is no secret--it's just hard work, but I need to acknowledge all the help I have gotten from everyone here. I will spread the Spark from now on!

Yea, but.....

Friday, April 15, 2011

Today I was doing my hair after my shower and I saw my arms in the mirror. I saw my saggy under arm skin. I thought, "Awww, man, I hate that flappy skin! It looks horrible!"
But then the magic happened. I thought, "Yea but look how good your biceps look!"

That got me thinking....In my past, how many times have I done that but in the negative?

THEN:
"You look cute in that" (Yea but my shirt is too tight and my belly is hanging over)
"You should go for a walk" (Yea but my knee/back hurts so I cant)
"You need to lose weight" (Yea but it is sooo hard or I have tried before and I cant and my lifestyle makes it too hard etc.)
"You need to get healthy' (Yea but my numbers are all good and I am only PRE-diabetic so I have time"
"Honey, maybe if you lost some a little weight you would feel better" (Yea but you love me anyway so why bother)

NOW:
"You are losing weight soo slow!" (Yea but I am still losing!)
"It is gonna take FOREVER to get to your goal!" (Yea but I AM gonna get there)
"Your saggy baggy elephant skin belly is sooo gross!" (Yea but I look better than last year!)
"You still have over 50 pounds too lose!" (Yea but I have already lost 65!)
"All you do is walk for excercise" (Yea but I couldnt do that before and I go farther or faster all the time!)
"You can't eat a Bacon Cheeseburger and fries" (Yea but I can have a Hamburger with ketchup and veggies and a salad and steal a couple of fries from Franks plate)
"You can't do this. It is too hard, you always fail, you have too much to lose. 111 pounds? Wayy too big of a goal!" (Yea but I am doing it so STFU!)

So between NOW and THEN, I will take NOW! And whatever your "Yea, but...." is that is keeping you down, tell it to stuff it and TURN IT AROUND. It is all in how you look at it.
Eventually the" Yea, buts" will be "YEAH BUTT's!"

Now that I have had a minute...

Thursday, April 14, 2011

I wanted to add a few things to my last blog about the TV thing today. As I was watching the whole thing on DVR, I realized something: There was nothing I was embarrased about. My house looked good, my daughters are pretty with good sense of humor, my pets were fun, I was a good sport. I mean, alot of things happened that did not make that short clip including the interviewer totally calling me out and making me wrestle with her to try to make the bird scream! I did it.
Sing live on TV? sure why not!
Go on TV without a shower and last nights bed head? OF course!
I wasnt nervous, I just had fun. It actually takes a lot to embarrass me.

I also realized that 65 pounds ago I would NEVER have allowed myself to be video'ed or put on tv. I never allowed pictures of any kind, at least not often. I have always been confidant in front of crowds (Yes, I am a ham) but I would have been very embarrased by my weight. I would have watched that tape back today and been so embarrased by my lumps and rolls and fat and all the things I would have noticed.
Instead, I was not horrified and there is a hell of a lot of satisfaction in that. I think I looked pretty good actually and that makes me really happy. Im glad I made the change. I really am.

I just had to do a video for a conference at work and went through exactly the same thing, even though I didn't get to sing with a dog or wrestle -- both of which are very good things! Yes, this is why we're here and I think it is the struggling that we're doing that teaches us to be comfortable with who we are, where we are, and when we're there.

TV debut

Thursday, April 14, 2011

Well guys as promised, here is a link to the TV interview today. First of all, they got to my house at 6 AM instead of 7 so the shower went out the window. Then my parrot would only talk when they turned the camera on. The star of the show of course, was Stitchy! She sang lots of times and was adorable as well as Mix the cat who ran into the room whenever they were filming and Kady brought her rat into the mix too just so the world is convinced we are completly crazy! I have better video that I will put up when the girls compile it..... Hope you enjoy it...lol.

Stuff I thought about today

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

I love the face of old dogs. I love how their muzzles are grey and their eyes are a little cloudy but they always seem happy. Just happy to be.

Baby horses are being born right now in Northern California. I cant tell you how happy that makes me when I see a little guy, just learning how to walk and frolic.

My cats are crazy.

Thursday AM a local TV station is coming to my house to see my parrot and to see Stitchy sing. I will get a link and post it so you guys can see it. It should be hilarious.

Dinner was soo good tonight. I pounded chicken breasts thin, rolled up a slice of canadian bacon and reduced fat provolone cheese and breaded it with panko and parmesan and baked it. It. was. amazing. Pair that with broccoli and a baked pototo and french bread....I am a wonderful cook!

I just feel good today. I ate perfectly within my range and I am getting ready to go for a walk.

Why is my kitchen floor ALWAYS in need of sweeping?

The fruit salad I made today is fabulous.

I like white yogurt raisins as well as the dark chocolate ones and they are both the same calories!

I hope my daughters marry their Art's. Soon. lol.

I feel like the Universe is lining up for good things. For me. For all of us. Man, I hope I am right.

Today was a good day. I am happy. I hope you are, too.

    Sounds like a wonderful day! Foot pain aside, I too had a great day.

Diner tonight is salmon, parmesan zucchini with wild rice.

    I loved your blog. Gave me peace and also a smile. I work at a kennel and one of the first things I saw this morning at 6:00 a.m. was exactly the look of an old dog you described. Aren't they so wonderful?

Thanks for the refreshing thoughts. I needed them this evening. You made me think of the things I thought of today.

    Your dinner sounds really good Jan. I oven fried chicken and steamed fresh brussels sprouts and a few potatoes...omg it was sure good. We had a huge garden salad for lunch that was awesome too. I like how you stated you are a good cook. Heck take credit where credit is due. I think I'm a pretty darn good cook too. I made chicken noodle soup from scratch today and taco soup and froze about 10 containers.

Today was a good day for me as well. I love your blogs!

Enjoy your evening spark buddy,
