Now What?

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

I found an old WW weigh-in booklet and realized my losing streak is in nearly the same spot now. I am eating much healthier than I have in the past --- but I still need a major overhaul and a drill sergeant to get me to exercise. What will it take for me to get my head in the right spot? I have made so much incredible progress - including today when I whizzed up the hill of hell. I have never gone up it so fast. Granted, I felt like laying on the ground when I got up it, but my attitude towards that hill has totally changed. I embrace it. I used to walk around the longer way to avoid it, and then, ahem, take the elevator.

I am doing it. I am moving along. I just need a kickstart to get myself going in a major way. I want to be one the downward trend again.

All is well. Just another rainy day on the east coast. We have not had rain for so long, I think i forgot how to deal with the dreariness (plus the allergies, and the work stress, and the tiny little bank account.) ha! I am slightly worn down but I will be back in action. I have come too far to let myself retreat now.

Woot woot!

    Hey, Mick--we needed the rain, you know, just as sometimes we need a boot in the buns to get us moving. This is not about anything you ever did (or didn't do before). Einstein said that madness was repeating the same action, and expecting it to have different results. This is NOT the "same old, same old" diet trap you and I and a hundred thousand others have fallen into--lose weight by swallowing this pill, drinking this liquid, waving this magic wand. It doesn't happen that way. It happens the way we've always been told it does, by our most honest (and least appealing) advisors: diet & exercise, expend more than you ingest, challenge your body to work and play harder. You will get "into" exercise when you stop letting yourself look at it as torture. Instead of saying "I'm not going to the gym today," tell yourself, "I'm only going to do half my usual workout." You'll find that since you're already there, and already working, it's no big deal to finish, once you start. The trick is to give yourself the freedom to say "I CHOOSE to do this much, and not a lift or a minute more if I don't feel like it." I'm not a bad girl because I don't feel like doing all four reps--I'm tired, or I'm stressed, or I'm feeling pressure because I have other commitments--but at least I'm *doing SOMETHING*! I've found that allowing myself to say no more often makes me say yes. I'm still not crazy about exercise--no treadmill junkies here!--but I don't *hate* it the way I used to. And I can stick with anything that works. Zeroing in on my 40th pound . . . down 2+ jeans sizes . . . can walk past a mirror without cringing. I'm not on a timetable--I'm doing this FOR ME, not for some guy, or to impress my old classmates, or to fit into some dress for somebody's wedding. If I have an "off" day--stuff happens--and I just get back on track the next. This is not a temporary change. It's a lifestyle conversion, and I passed the acid test this past month, when the goodies were all around me every single day at the office. (They call it Food Month--because it's the annual absolute worst four weeks of any contracting officer's life.) I didn't touch the munchies, but for a couple of grapes and a sliver of really good cheese . . . I *could have*, if I wanted to, because I no longer listen to the Mama voice that says, "I'm ashamed of you." I am going to be 59 in January: I can eat what I damned well please, thank you, and do it without guilt, if it's a conscious *choice.* But I *chose* not to, and therefore didn't feel "deprived." It would be nice if I could eat that stuff--it would be nice if I were 35 again--but neither is the case, so no use whining about it. YOU, TOO. You have *choices* and you've made the CHOICE to be healthier and happier--not on somebody else's schedule, or according to anyone else's style or regimen--MICKEY'S WAY. Keep it up, kiddo--you're doing fine!

    You don't need a drill Sargent. In your mind, make small goals. Things you see yourself doing, like avoiding the hill. You go up the hill and it gets easier every single time! Maybe walk up the hill twice just to show it who is the boss! Keep weeding through the accommodations you may not have realized you've made for yourself. Just a suggestion. Congrats on your weight loss! Have a great Sparkin' week friend. emoticon

    It is difficult to break with the old eating habits that got us where we were when we started with Spark. You just need to find something that works for you.

For me, it was finally understanding that I just could not start one more stinking "diet" and that I just had change eating habits.

You are doing SOOO well, keep up the great work and just remember that you TOOK the hill from He**!!!

    Hey, I just got myself out of the drearies! It's not a fun place to be. Mine was accidental - I went shopping and tried on what I thought would be a too-small jacket, just to see how far I had to go. It fit! Brought me right out of my funk.

Use that hill to get you out of your funk. Or find something else. What can you do now that you couldn't do before? What would you not have if not for all your hard work so far? Enjoy it!!

    I agree with doing little things consistently. Try to make a game out of it. How many days in a row can you walk (or whatever exercise you choose). How many days in a row can you drink your water? Get 8 hours of sleep? write down your food? Etc. You can do this! This is the time of year we start to get overwhelmed by everything. Do something consistent and you will be where you want to be in no time! Head up and eyes on the goal! Hugs!

I'm sure you'll find a way to get yourself pumping iron if that's what you want. Its your life. You choose.

You're a wonderful, strong, powerful woman, who can whiz up any hill that you put your mind to.

5 mile yard sale

Monday, September 27, 2010

The hot and spicy food fest was a bit of a bust. It took under 2 hours to get there so it was not a complete waste of time. We did buy some smokin' hot "ghost" pepper stuff that would burn a hole in the roof of normal people. Hubby Rick does not qualify there so he was only too happy to get some of that along with some kicked up preserves, rubs and hot sauces. Thanks, Heartbreaking Dawn!

We came home and cruised to one of the neighborhood towns to check out a flea market. We actually came upon a town wide yard sale. We walked through it for miles. My face was BEET RED towards the end which I mistook for sunburn. After we chillaxed afterwards, the red all but dissipated. I guess I was just HOT.

I bought a wire scroll plant holder that I will use for a jewelry display at the craft fair ($1), a teddy bear in very good shape for a friend who collects bears ($1), a set of wine charms which I will use to harvest the beads (50 cents), and a free book on gift packaging. It was towards the end of the day where the person just wanted it hauled off. ha ha. Thank you!

I love having fun on only a little dough. Our finances are kind of strapped again, so this will be a good way to keep us rolling along. We're doing fine, just tight towards the end of the budget before I get paid. (monthly!)

Wishing you a happy sparky kind of day!

WOO HOO FRIDAY

Friday, September 24, 2010

Love what a great day I had.

Set up a few errands - bank, post office and library in one walking trip and had to be back at 9:30 to train a new student hire. I got my stuff done, had a delightful experience with the post office dude...he stamped "love you" on the pkg I was sending my mother. Had to book kind of quickly to get back to my office, and I felt like RUNNING -- I was having my wheeeee on a walk. I knew better than to break out on a walk, but I felt great.

Did the training session, squeezed in a couple of hours of working on the phones, and then went off to work the special event I have been dealing with all week. Went smoothly --- despite having too turn away many folks. Packed house. More walking to the event, and then while working it and took off my pedometer after I hit 10K steps.

Had to work longer to make up for the crazy busy day. I got no work done today other than answering tons of phone calls and dealing with the event. It was such a satisfying day. I know I will sleep well tonight.

Tomorrow we're going to a hot n' spicy food festival and a farmer's market. I'm tickled. Hubby LOVES spice things. ;) We'll have a good ol' time.

Have a great weekend, sparkies! Enjoy your life......

I lost 50 lbs last night

Thursday, September 23, 2010

Yes, actually it was all in one night. And oddly enough, I was sitting on the couch.

Along with better eating habits and motivational tips, I have received an even bigger gift from sparking and fellow sparkies. Last night I did something that even completely amazed me. I FORGAVE MYSELF.

I forgave myself for all the times I let myself down because I was full of self doubt and was afraid to try. I forgave myself for all of my transgressions, for the things I should have done, but didn't, for getting kicked out of school (well, the girls academy) but I was never really much of a Holy Angel anyhow. I just let it all go and I stopped blaming myself and pointing out the what ifs.

Here's what happened. I just about floated off the couch. I felt lighter. I felt happier. I felt, wait for it, wait for it.....NORMAL. That right there has not happened for a long time, and I even acknowledged that along with everyone else I am human.

WHOA.

I went to bed feeling relaxed and happy.....and FREE. I have not feel like this before. Just free. unburdened. I concurred with myself that I liked myself. Heck, I love myself. :)

I went to bed around 11:30pm and woke up somewhere around 3:45am. Decided that since I was up and awake that I "might as well" go to the gym and find my wheeeeeeee (from a blog or two ago). I left the house about 4am, drove a quarter of a mile and realized my wallet was sitting at home. Oops. Drove home and got it. Left again, and arrived to gym happy and awake and rode the bike for 35 mins. It was awesome. I felt euphoric.

My crazy week has all but evaporated. It is not any less busy. I am just not living on the edge as I was all week because I've had no physical workout. I can't go on without those. Working out keeps me sane. It keeps me from calling a co-worker a moron (to his face). :) I had a very lively day. It's close to the time for me to run out of here, but I had to share my delightful with all of you.

Hope life is treating you well, Sparkies. Remember to cut yourself some slack!

  You have done something that many people cannot.
Some people never forgive themselves, they just carry the burden around with them and it gets heavier and heavier. More and more things get added to it. A 50 pound burden grows and grows and soon it is a 900 pound burden, and it breaks them. They get grouchy and mean and hateful and more and more unhappy. No one wants to be around them, and things just get worse and worse, until it breaks them. Sometimes they cannot recover. Congratulations to you for having the guts to allow yourself to do it. You have begun to live free! Don't let anything or anyone tempt you into taking it back, not even a little bit, because after all, it is a choice and you are the only one that can make it. Just remember, you never have to carry it again!

Congratulations on your new life!

Morning Laugh

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

Working many hours this week and finding myself short on sleep, I decided that instead of going to the gym this morning, as I wanted to, weird though that may be, I would instead do some stretching, from the comfort of my own bed.

On practically my first move, I decide I should do my legs. With one big stretch, I get a giant charlie horse. ha ha ha. Normally, this would not make me laugh and in fact, yeah it hurt. But there was also something so funny about the whole thing to me, I burst out laughing. Thanks, universe, I needed that. :)

Been taking myself way too seriously lately. I need to lighten my load (literally) and things will be better. I don't believe in the magic of getting thinner makes you happier, but I do believe in magic and getting thinner. :)

Maybe I should stop writing blogs before coffee. ha ha ha.

The good news is that all of the special event tickets have been distributed, so we should quieter days ahead. yay! This is great, because I have a lot of work to do and need to take a walk. NOt just because I missed my gym time, and ahem, my stretching this morning, but because my library book is overdue. I don't want Public Safety showing up to claim the book. :)

Hope all is well in Spark-land. Have a super day! Hope you get to laugh it up.

    Thanks for sharing your laughing moment! I got a couple charlie horses during water aerobics the other night, but didnt make me laugh...LOL. My instructor said to drink more water and a friend of mine said eat more bananas...Well, how much more water do I need to drink, I am already drinking atleast 14-8oz glasses a day...LOL!

    Laughter makes ANYTHING a little better! I have done the same thing (stretching in bed) and gotten the Charlies Horses too. No fun!

Well, hope you're able to get back to your routine.

Have a good day.
