Spark coach asks how does clothes shopping make me feel?

Tuesday, October 14, 2014

clothes shopping is the worst thing ever. I've learned to look past the number, but it's exceedingly frustrating to have to go back to the dressing room time after time to find something that fits. What works in one brand doesn't work in another. Or sometimes even within its own brand.
Does anyone remember when there were dressing room attendants that would help you by bringing different sizes? Now you're lucky if you don't have to put away the clothes you've pulled and don't want.

  


My relationship with food is...

Friday, October 03, 2014

...a mixed bag. Sometimes we work well together like we're in sync and compatico. Other times we fight. My emotions get in the way and even though I know I shouldn't, it calls to me and tells me I will feel better if I give in to its siren call and have just a little (more).

    I do pretty good during the day. It's after dinner when I'm overwhelmed and bored that I rummage and graze. And of course none of it's healthy. We just had a birthday party so there's all sorts of leftover snacks. I brought most of it to work. I did finally finish off the bag of cheetos, so I won't have to worry about that. :) I was kind of good about it, I put a serving in a bowl instead of grabbing and eating the whole bag at once. I'm calling that a win.

An extra hour in a day

Monday, September 08, 2014

What would I do with an extra hour? It's hard to say and would depend on the day. Some days I would exercise. Some days I would cook. Some days I would sleep. Or play with my kids. Or read a book.
How do I get that hour? I don't know. Spend less time online? Less time on the couch? Less time feeling like I want to cut off my arm? My leg? My head?
I'm totally in the loop where I know exercise may help me feel better, but not having the energy to do it. I know eating well will help me feel better, but I don't have the energy to cook. Or shop. Or plan.
I want a vacation from my own body, but that won't happen.
So, I'll do what I do every day and fight my way to the end. Cuz that's what I do. If that hour appears, or starts to appear I'll live that adventure.

One sentence

Tuesday, August 26, 2014

SparkCoach wants me to describe how I feel in one sentence. I can name that tune in 1 word:
Accomplished.

Entering Stage 3: Lifestyle Change

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

So, I am entering into Stage 3 and have stalled out. Once again, SparkPeople called me out and knew exactly what to say to get me back on track. Today I am revisiting my goals. Not the "lose weight and inches" goal, but my OVERALL goal. I have 2. The biggest goal is to not end up in a wheelchair. I have Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis. From everything that I've researched what will help keep me healthy and moving is to, well, stay healthy and moving. So, I have to remember that goal. I am also an "older" mom with two young active girls. I want to be able to stay active with them. Once again, I need to stay healthy and moving. In order to stay healthy and moving, I have to GET healthy and moving. So here I am... Ready to face this challenge. Bring it.
