Rejuvinate the body, mind, and spirit.. ahhhhhhh!!

Monday, March 15, 2010

So I took a 3 day break from my norm stressed out life. I spent evenings by the lake, writing in my journal, bubble baths by candlelight, and listening to relaxing music as I focus on meditating. I spent the days, walking by the lake, up the road from the lake, then back to the condo. I also spent time eating healthy.. yay!! I did not falter on my goal or my food. No fast food for me!! I ate vegetables, steamed and raw... I ate lots and lots of fresh fruit... Mmmm I love blackberries and raspberries. My evenings ended with a nice frozen tall glass of pure smoothie enjoyment.. yummmm!! I have lost 3.6 pds since Wed morning. Wooohoooo

New Beginnings

Monday, March 08, 2010

So Saturday was my new beginning to life day. I have already lost weight thru Weight Watchers, but want a more normal daily routine without counting and adding up points. So its only Monday but I am doing good so far. I did have a minor set back tonight, but hey you have to have a little reward every once in a while right? I had a cup of Raspberry sherbet, mmmmm mmmm good!

It feels great, I am finally committed and with my friends for support---I can do anything. There is so much stress in my life right now, and in the past I would do the emotional eating thing.. Bad--very bad!! So now, instead of letting stress get to me, I get to it. I journal everyday, discussing my thoughts, frustrations, and just all around stuff. Its amazing how just writing something on a piece of paper can bring so much relief to your mind. So no more emotional eating for me.

I have been keeping up with my water intake daily. I can tell a difference. Its like my body craves it now, more than before. I am consistent on taking my Juice Plus pills, B12, and folic acid pill every day.. I can tell a difference with that already. I have more energy and I am sleeping better. I can see a difference in my skin and my nails.

It is amazing how losing just 30pnds can change the way you feel. I can walk further distances now and not have knee and ankle pain. I just feel good all over. I feel healthier, and I can tell it is carrying over into my work as well. I have so much more energy and just getting a better attitude about my life. I LOVE THIS FEELING and cant wait to see how another 30pd weight loss will feel.

How I got to this point in my life...

Sunday, March 07, 2010

Ok so all my life I was fit and active in sports. Since middle school I have played basketball and volleyball. THEN I met a boy, laughs, ok a man. Well BEFORE I met him, I never ate fast food; except for a salad or grilled chicken sandwich. To make a long story short, 6 years into the relationship instead of changing his eating habits, mine were changed. I went from eating no fast food, to eating it almost 3x a day... UGH!! Needless to say, we are no longer together and all I have to show for it---98# weight gain. Then my father passed away and I gained another 40#s. So here I am.

I am changing my life and my health. I started Weight Watchers and starting weight was 362, thank God for being almost 6' tall. :) I now weigh 329. Yay!! emoticon
