so done!

Saturday, February 13, 2010

I am so aggravated with myself. I did a wonderful thing today( at least I think its wonderful) I got out and walked with my daughter, two miles, mostly uphill. It was killer but felt so good! So why, in the back on my head is my little voice saying..."you didn't do it fast enough!" "you only made it two miles?" All things that I think are good to some extent to push me further but why can't I just let myself be happy that I got out and did it? I want to make it further, and faster and all that but for today I want to be proud of myself! So why is that so hard for me? Got together with friends I hadn't seen in awhile yesterday and they were asking what I was doing and telling me how good I looked and all I wanted to do was eat after that. I wonder what that is all about...somewhere deep inside of me I am afraid of becoming what I say I want to become. I need to push past the fear and become the best me I can be!

    What you focus on expands. So focus on the positive, let the negative go and there will come a time when it will come natural to do so. Two miles, mostly uphill is a postive, thinking that you should have done it faster is a negative. Don't "should" on yourself !!!

    I hear that voice also. Telling me that if I get what I want, I will be like I used to be. I don't want to be like I used to be. I want to be different and small. When I was small before, I did some things I'm ashamed of and I don't want to repeat them. That is my problem.

    I hear that voice too. It sometimes comes when we are changing and it is afraid of us actually making it to our goals. I was there a couple of weeks ago when all this was newer. Just sit with it and realize that you have a choice: either go back to the way it was or stick with it. The voice either wins or not. It is all up to you. It takes a while to get your mind in the same place as your body is going only this time it will work for you.
Keep going.

feeling so much better

Thursday, February 04, 2010

So for years, and I mean as long as I can possibly remember, I have had terrible sinus problems. Constantly drippy nose, headaches, sinus infections. Had allergy testing years ago for environmental allergies and received allergy shots for some time. Anyway, I never remember being tested for food allergies, so I decided to give the whole vegan thing a shot and it is amazing how much better I feel. I also eliminated gluten from my diet and lo and behold, runny nose is so much better, not perfect but so much better. Sinus pressure gone. Asthma better. Imagine all this time and the solution was so simple! Anyway, I love the Eat to live program! emoticon


four pounds!!!

Thursday, January 07, 2010

Yay, I weighed myself today and am down four pounds since last week!!! I still have a long way to go but I haven't been this weight in years! My goal is to be down thirty more pounds by my oldest daughter's birthday in May! That would put me out of the 200's for the first time in years!!!

more resolutions

Sunday, December 20, 2009

to finish the eat to live and the 21 day vegan kick start challenges! I know this is the best way of eating for me but sometimes old habits die hard. I feel so much better when the animal products are eliminated from my diet! This time I will do it!

  Your blog reminded me of something I heard at Weight Watchers 20+ years ago. The leader always said, "Nothing tastes as good as being thin feels." I have remembered that for years - but I think she was slightly mistaken. I think perhaps, "Nothing tastes as good as being HEALTHY feels". Hang in there! You deserve it
